American R&B artist Keith Martin, the singer behind the song “Because of You”, died of a heart attack, according to the police.
The news about the singer being found lifeless in his condo came out last Friday, March 25. His condo unit can be found in Barangay Bagumbayan in Quezon City.
The Quezon City Police District (QCPD), in a statement on Tuesday, March 29, confirmed the cause of his death.
Apparently, the 57-year-old singer died of acute myocardial infarction or heart attack due to atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, citing the information on his death certificate.
The QCPD has since informed the Embassy of the United States as of this writing.
It was on March 20 at around 9 in the morning when personnel working at the condominium last saw him alive.
Five days later, a neighbor of his reported a foul smell coming from the condo unit of the singer.
Meanwhile, it was on February 21 when his former live-in partner last saw him. At the time, Keith visited her and their child.
