Brandon had a long history with alcohol abuse. The report states that Brandon Church had a clinical history of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizure disorder — meaning he had a history of binge drinking and trying to quit, which would trigger a seizure. He had suffered a seizure that prompted an emergency response and his transport to a local hospital. However, he suffered another seizure on the way and was sent into full cardiac arrest.
“According to the autopsy, the alcohol abuse also caused a thickening of his heart, coronary artery disease and liver damage. Brandon, who had written a handful of songs over the years with his famous brother, was 36,” reported TMZ.
Sending prayers to the his family for healing during this difficult time.
