Chris Lighty’s family is seeking a second opinion about the cause of death of the Hip-Hop mogul, who was laid to rest yesterday (September 5), in New York.
Stars like Russell Simmons, Sean “Diddy” Combs, LL Cool J, Missy Elliot and numerous others attended the funeral for Lighty, who ran Violator Management, and later, Primary Wave Management.
But Lighty was found dead last Wednesday (August 30), from on apparent suicide after an alleged spat with his wife in his Bronx apartment.
According to the Associated Press, the family has conducted a second autopsy using forensic pathologist Michael Baden.
Baden specializes in independent opinions on deaths and even testified in the O.J. Simpson trial.
The family is still awaiting the test results, but their recent comments to the press indicate that they do not believe Chris Lighty committed suicide.
And at the funeral it was heard that LL Cool J deviated from his speech and eventually muttered “Something ain’t right.” This leads to speculation by many that Chris Lighty didn’t kill himself at all.
Furthermore, some are pointing the finger to Chris’ widow. DJ Scratch tweeted the following, but my sources are saying that this represents the views and opinions of quite a lot of people.
