John Singleton shocked the world with his untimely death in April. And while his death certificate revealed several medical conditions claimed his life, his family thinks there’s more to his death they’re not aware of.
WHAT WE KNOW
TMZ shared the news first that the mothers of Singleton’s children have hired a private investigator to look into the moments before he showed up in the hospital complaining about his leg.
They had no idea who drove him to the hospital, who he was with and what he was doing prior. He just arrived in a wheelchair alone and seemed pretty out of it, according to hospital staff.
It was previously reported that prior to slipping into a coma, the late director had just arrived from a trip to Costa Rica when he checked into a hospital to have his leg checked. While admitted, he suffered a stroke on April 17. He never recovered, prompting the family to take him off life support on April 29, the date of his death as reflected on his death certificate. The document also revealed he died of acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and hypertension.
WHAT HIS FAMILY WANT TO KNOW
While all this seems clear to Singleton’s family, what isn’t certain to them are the events that led to his hospitalization. They had no idea who drove him to the hospital, who he was with and what he was doing prior. He just arrived in a wheelchair alone and seemed pretty out of it, according to hospital staff.
The family also wants to know if the 51-year-old was with or in communication with someone who knew of his condition and could have done something more to avoid his death.
The mothers of Singleton’s children whose names were withheld reportedly hired the services of an investigator to look further into the matter in the hope that their questions will be answered.
