According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the official cause and manner of Vinnie Paul Abbott‘s death is still pending. Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said that information will likely take several days to be issued.
Vinnie Paul passed away on Friday (June 22) at his home in Las Vegas at the age of 54. The former PANTERA drummer’s death “did not appear suspicious,” according to the official report of the event recorded by Metropolitan Police officers.
Officers were dispatched to a dead-body call at 5:41 p.m. Friday. Medical personnel were summoned, and Vinnie Paul was pronounced dead at the scene.
After an official cause of death has been determined, Vinnie‘s body will be flown to Texas to be buried between his mother and brother.
