Two months ago Chicago Fire star Dushon Monique Brown died suddenly. At the time it was said that she’d died of natural causes.


Now a Cook County Medical Examiner has revealed her exact cause of death. E! News reported that the star had died from sepsis.

Dushon Monique Brown was reported on March 23, 2018, to have died at the age of 49 in Illinois. The Cook County Medical Examiner has now revealed that the actress passed away from sepsis of an unknown etiology.

In layman’s terms, this means she had an infection of the blood of an unknown origin. Other factors that contributed to her situation included obesity and high blood pressure.


Brown portrayed Connie on Chicago Fire since 2012. TMZ reported that the actress had sought medical treatment for chest pains a few days prior to her death.

‘Sepsis develops when the chemicals in the immune system release into the bloodstream to fight an infection caused inflammation throughout the entire body. Severe cases of sepsis can lead to septic shock, which is a medical emergency.’

Health Line

Chicago Fire’s executive producer Dick Wolf shared a statement at the time. He said, "The Chicago Fire family is devastated to lose one of its own”


Wolf added that their thoughts and prayers were with Brown's family and that they would all miss her. Brown’s manager, Robert Schroeder, also paid tribute to the late star.


He stated at the time that they were saddened to announce the actress’ untimely death. Schroeder added that her passing and the loss of her talent and kind soul had devastated them.

‘DuShon was a film, television, commercial and voice-over actress who also graced the stages of many Chicago theaters,’ the manager shared. Brown was said to have brought laughter and joy to many and would be greatly missed.

She is survived by her daughter.
