Michael Braxton Jr.’s daughter Lauren Braxton cause of death has now been revealed.

According to sources, an autopsy completed by the medical examiner’s office in Maryland shows Lauren died of heroin overdose and fentanyl intoxication.



MadameNoire reports:

Lauren’s cause of death was not from any heart issues, but rather, the cause of death for her was a heroin overdose and fentanyl intoxication. The manner in which she passed is still undetermined. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid used to relieve pain. There is a high risk of dependence upon usage and respiratory distress and death can occur when combined with other substances and/or when taken in high doses.

She was found unresponsive on the kitchen floor when the paramedics were called. She was later pronounced dead.

Lauren, who is the niece of R&B singer Toni Braxton, died on April 29 in Maryland at the age of 24.
