Chris Lighty?s Family Seeks Second Opinion On Death

Chris Lighty’s family is seeking a second opinion about the cause of death of the Hip-Hop mogul, who was laid to rest yesterday (September 5), in New York.

Stars like Russell Simmons, Sean “Diddy” Combs, LL Cool J, Missy Elliot and numerous others attended the funeral for Lighty, who ran Violator Management, and later, Primary Wave Management.

But Lighty was found dead last Wednesday (August 30), from on apparent suicide after an alleged spat with his wife in his Bronx apartment.

According to the Associated Press, the family has conducted a second autopsy using forensic pathologist Michael Baden.

Baden specializes in independent opinions on deaths and even testified in the O.J. Simpson trial.

The family is still awaiting the test results, but their recent comments to the press indicate that they do not believe Chris Lighty committed suicide.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, his ex-wife Veronica denied police accounts that there was an argument prior to Lighty’s suicide.

“My husband was too smart of a man. He was a genius. No smart man is going to leave his children for fighting with his wife,” Veronica Lighty told the Daily News “That makes absolutely no sense.

“We had a passionate relationship. We fought all the time,” Veronica said.

“This isn’t my brother. My brother was a strong person, is a strong person,” added Dave Lighty. “Nothing is adding up. I can’t get a direct answer from anybody…I understand there’s a process to be followed. I can’t even get clear answers from people I think I should be getting clear answers from.”
