RIP Caleb

As a non-native English speaker, I did not get the ''natural causes'' part. Is this just a way of saying that he wasn't killed? I mean, I get an 80 year old dying of 'natural causes' i.e old age, but 25 year old? Would cancer be natural cause also?
So what do you expect when you draft Grabby McHolderson to play your right tackle?

Health problems count as natural causes. He was severely overweight very soon after leaving the NBA.

Yeah, I think it's a placeholder for neither homicide nor suicide.

So after looking this up, in the United States at least, there’s two parts to death determination:

1. Cause of death (what actually killed them)
2. Manner/Mode of death (Largely a legal point - could be natural causes, suicide, homicide, undetermined, and pending)

Yeah that’s really sad and far too young to pass away.

I remember reading about his weight issues back before he was even in college, then obviously being at Purdue he got into better shape but it was always a struggle.
