Former Child Star Blake Heron’s Cause of Death Revealed
Blake Heron, a former child star known for the 1996 film “Shiloh,” died in September 2017 at the age of 35, and now his cause of death has been revealed.
According to a death certificate obtained by The Blast, Heron died due to the “effects of multiple drugs."
The star reportedly had fentanyl in his system, as well as medications for high blood pressure, anxiety, nerve pain and allergies.
