An autopsy says natural causes claimed the life of a North Carolina prosecutor found dead at home last year amid attention over “The Staircase” documentary series.
Freda Black helped prosecute the 2001 killing examined by the documentary. An autopsy released Monday by the state medical examiner cited liver disease due to alcoholism as the cause of death.
Police have said Black was found dead last July and the 57-year-old’s death didn’t appear suspicious.
