A família de Tom Petty confirmou a causa da morte do músico, aos 66 anos, em outubro passado.

Tom Petty morreu de uma sobredose acidental de medicamentos.

Em comunicado publicado nas redes sociais, a viúva e a filha de Tom Petty explicam ter recebido os resultados da autópsia, que mostram que este sofria de enfisema, de uma fratura na anca e de problemas nos joelhos. O músico foi informado do diagnóstico no dia de sua morte, e os familiares acreditam que "a dor era simplesmente insuportável e foi a causa de seu uso excessivo de remédios".

Elas dizem que esperam que a notícia dê início a "uma discussão mais aprofundada da crise de opioides".

Esperamos que esse relatório possa salvar vidas de alguma forma.

Dana e Adria terminam a nota em uma observação positiva. Petty, cujas músicas e narrativas obscuras alimentaram 40 anos de sucesso, morreu uma semana após uma turnê para marcar os 40 anos da banda The Heartbreakers.
