Alexi Laiho’s first wife and legal widow, Kimberly Goss, says on Instagram she received the autopsy report of a guitarist who died in December on Thursday.
According to Goss, the cause of death in Laiho, 41, was alcohol-induced fatty liver degeneration and pancreatic connective tissue.
- In addition, painkillers, opioids and sleeping pills were found in his body, Goss says.
According to Goss, Laiho's death could have been prevented.
In his update, he appeals to all drug addicts to seek help for themselves.
- You don't have to experience this same fate.
If people try to help, remember that they are doing it out of love and care.
Don’t push them away, Goss writes.
Goss says that there are plans to establish a foundation or charity in Finland to help those struggling with drug addiction.
- I don't want him to die in vain.
If his story can save even one human life, then something terrible can follow from this terrible loss, Goss says.

He was 41 years old at the time of his death.
