Vatican autopsy confirms Wesolowski died from heart attack

(Vatican Radio) The Vatican said on Friday that an autopsy has confirmed that its former Apostolic Nuncio to the Dominican Republic died from a heart attack.

A statement released by the Holy See’s Press Office said the autopsy on Jozef Wesolowski was conducted by a team of coroners named by the Vatican prosecutor, in accordance with international guidelines and protocols.

The statement said the toxicology tests confirmed that the former envoy died a natural death ``excluding any other external causes.''

The Polish-born former Nuncio was found dead in his Vatican apartment last August as he was awaiting trial in a Vatican court on charges of sexually abusing minors in Santo Domingo and possessing child pornographic material on his computer.
