Death of 28-year-old Atlanta Hawks center Jason Collier was confirmed
DECATUR, Ga. — An autopsy released Tuesday shows Atlanta Hawks center Jason Collier died from a heart-related condition. The state’s chief medical examiner, Dr. Kris Sperry, said testing showed that Collier’s Oct. 15 death was from a sudden heart rhythm disturbance caused by an abnormally enlarged heart.
Sperry also said his testing showed that electrocardiograms administered to Collier in 2003 and this year showed “some indication of electrical abnormalities.”
