Following Harry Morton's death on Saturday, an autopsy took place on Monday, and the deputy medical examiner, Dr. Matthew Miller, confirmed to his family the following day that Harry's heart had been enlarged due to coronary artery disease that went undetected.

While there is no foul play suspected and no drugs found in his system, the autopsy will only be completed after further tests, including microscopy of all his organs.

According to Page Six, Dr. Kathy E. Magliato, a family friend of the Morton's and a top cardiothoracic surgeon, confirmed that Harry's three main arteries had enough calcification to cause sudden loss of heart function.

Unable to hold a funeral until the tests are completed, the family plans on holding a memorial service for Harry in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Harry was found dead by his brother Matthew in his Beverly Hills home, and his unexpected passing left his family devastated as they told Page Six:

“We are devastated by the loss of our beloved son, brother and friend. Harry was the brightest light in all our lives and his spirit will live on forever.”

The day before his passing, Harry seemed in good spirits as he had one last meal with his family, including his father, for whom he worked with for years in his Hard Rock Cafe chain before founding Pink Taco.
