Conservative blogger and commentator Andrew Breitbart died of heart failure stemming from coronary artery disease, Los Angeles County coroner’s office officials said.
The 43-year-old collapsed as he was walking his dog near his Brentwood home and died on March 1.
Breitbart had a negligible amount of alcohol in his system, but no prescription or illicit drugs were found, said Craig Harvey, spokesperson for the coroner’s office.
Harvey said foul play was not suspected and the case has been closed.
A conservative blogger and journalist, Breitbart helped launch the Huffington Post and was an editor at the Drudge Report.
