RIP Boogeyman. One of the greatest enforcers to play the game. He will be missed :(

Nothing yet, it will probably be another week or so before we find out.
An autopsy was being conducted Saturday, but county spokeswoman Carol Allis said results probably will not be released for at least two weeks.

She said in cases with no obvious signs of physical trauma or an obvious immediate cause of death, it takes time to receive results of laboratory tests. Allis said the medical examiner's office doesn't anticipate releasing preliminary autopsy findings until all results are in.
