“Grease” actor Jeff Conaway’s death ruled an accident

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Autopsy reports pertaining to the May 27th, 2011 death of “Grease” actor Jeff Conaway are conclusive. The actor died of “a major infection” according to Los Angeles County Coroner, Craig Harvey.

Conaway had been hospitalized for some two and a half weeks prior to his demise. Though he struggled with substance abuse, no toxicology report was pursued as part of the autopsy. It was deemed unnecessary since Conaway was in hospital custody and under monitored care.

The actor first became known for his role as Kenickie in the 1978 hit film “Grease.” He went on to play Bobby Wheeler on the show “Taxi” in 1981 and 1982. He played minor roles on popular television shows throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s—shows including “Murder, She Wrote,” “The Love Boat,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and “Who’s The Boss?” Chatter about the 60-year-old actor’s death was recently revived when he was conspicuously omitted from the “In Memoriam” sequence during last week’s Emmy Awards.
