TAIPEI – An autopsy has revealed that Taiwanese singer-actor-host Alien Huang died of cardiovascular complications.
On Friday (Sept 18), Huang's autopsy was completed and his manager explained to reporters that findings concluded that Huang died of an aortic dissection, which then led to a blockage of his blood vessels.
An aortic dissection is a life-threatening condition which occurs when the inner layer of the aorta – the large blood vessel branching off the heart – tears.
Huang, who was 36, was found dead in his home on Wednesday (Sept 16). There was speculation then that his death might have been due to a freak accident at home, but autopsy findings concluded that he had no external injuries.
Huang's manager, known only as Dino, clarified that the star had no known cardiovascular diseases and appeared to be in good health during his regular medical check-ups.
He added that there are plans for Huang's music and posthumous television work to be released.
He says: "Alien had been preparing his album, we won't make any changes to that. It is his work. Whatever has been produced, whatever he left behind, we will find a time to present it to the public. This includes programmes he has already filmed as well. We will let his performances be seen."
