**Tom Petty’s autopsy revealed that he passed away from an accidental drug overdose after taking a variety of medications. The late rocker’s family shared a statement via Facebook on Friday, January 19.

“Our family sat together this morning with the Medical Examiner – Coroner’s office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications,” the statement began. “Unfortunately Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip. Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury. On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication.”

As previously reported, Petty died at the age of 66 on October 2, 2017, after suffering cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu.
