Kidd Kraddick preliminary autopsy shows enlarged heart
A preliminary autopsy found that popular radio and TV host David “Kidd” Kraddick had an enlarged heart and blocked arteries, and probably developed an irregular heartbeat, according to a Louisiana coroner.
Dr. Granville Morse, deputy coroner, says the autopsy is not final because toxicology tests are not back, but says they did see that Kraddick had an enlarged heart and that three coronary arteries were 40-80 percent blocked.
On Saturday, Kidd Kraddick became ill at his charity’s golf tournament in a New Orleans suburb. He collapsed on the way to the hospital and could not be revived.
Kraddick is the face behind the nationally successful “Kidd Kraddick In The Morning” show.
He has been named America’s Best Radio Personality’; Radio and Records Major Market Personality of the Year; and he won the prestigious Marconi Award for Radio Personality of the Year.
