Chris Kelly (of Kris Kross) Used Cocaine and Heroin The Night Before His Death; Family Releases Statement
According to the police report, Chris Kelly, of the 90's rap duo Kris Kross, had used a combination of cocaine and heroin just one night before his death. His mother, Donna Kelly Pratt, and his uncle also told authorities of Kelly's "extensive history of drug use." Because of this Fulton County police are hinting that his death may have been due to a drug overdose.
Paramedics were called to the 34-year-old's Atlanta home, after Kelly was found unresponsive on the couch. After an unsuccessful attempt to revive him, he was later transported to Atlanta Medical Center's south campus, where he was officially pronounced dead.
His family released the following official statement, both remembering and grieving their loved one:
It is with deep sadness that we announce that our beloved Chris Kelly has passed away on May 1. To millions of fans worldwide, he was the trendsetting, backwards pants-wearing one-half of Kris Kross who loved making music. But to us, he was just Chris - the kind, generous and fun-loving life of the party. Though he was only with us a short time, we feel blessed to have been able to share some incredible moments with him. His legacy will live on through his music, and we will forever love him.
