The cause behind Michael Cavallari’s death has been revealed. It coincides with the hypothetical theory that Cavallari had died due to exposure to the elements. According to E!, after testing, it was discovered that Cavallari died of hypothermia.
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office revealed the news after Michael was found dead almost two months ago in Utah. In a statement, the Grand County Sheriff’s Office said the following.
“Michael Cavallari’s body was found three miles from where his car was wrecked in the high desert of Grand County, Utah. There were no signs of major trauma and no suicide note. Cops did not find any evidence of drugs or alcohol either.”
According to the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office, Kristin’s brother’s death was ruled as an accidental death, and not a suicide as once suspected, in the wake of Michael’s troubles with the law.
His family began to worry when his Honda Civic was found abandoned on November 27 on I-70. Two weeks later, his body was found and then transported to the medical examiner to undergo testing.
Following Michael’s disappearance, the Inquisitr reported, via a report by Radar Online, that Cavallari was described as “paranoid” and “delusional” before his death, by a neighbor that witnessed him speaking to himself. Neighbor Dennis told Radar Online of his condition.
“I remember a few times we’d see him ranting in the back yard, shouting that the CIA was coming to get him. He seemed paranoid, completely out of it.”
It’s said that he wanted desperately to get out of California and that he was struggling with alcohol prior to his death.
As the Inquisitr reported, the Laguna Beach star took to social media to express her sorrow for the loss of her brother.
Prior to Michael’s body being found, Cavallari expressed her hopes for her brother:
Shortly after when her brother’s body was discovered she shared her heartbreak with her followers:
Following the tragic death of her brother, Kristin was involved in a car accident when she was hit by another car in Chicago. Fortunately, the former reality star only suffered minor injuries, including a dislocated elbow.
After the accident she opened up to her fans on Instagram of her gratitude despite her recent troubles. The caption read as follows.
“Sorry-gonna get corny on u [sic] for a second. I dislocated my elbow in a car accident last week and because of that, and everything else I’ve been through in the past couple months, I have such an appreciation for life. I am so thankful it wasn’t worse, and more importantly that my babies weren’t with me.”
She continued, “My arm hurts like a b***h but I’m thankful because I have my arm!! Shot my spring shoe look book today and even though I could barely move my arm, I am forever grateful for being here to shoot it.”
