A Nashville medical examiner ruled Thursday that country singer Tammy
Wynette died from natural heart failure, according to the Associated
Press. The singer, who died in 1998, was exhumed as part of a $50
million wrongful-death suit brought by her daughters, who claim Wynette
became addicted to narcotics because of inappropriate medical treatment.
Although drugs were found in Wynette's body, examiner Bruce Levy said
it was impossible to determine whether they played a role in Wynette's
death, the AP reported.
