According to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office, Keough died from an intraoral shotgun wound at age 27. His death has been ruled a suicide.

Keough’s autopsy was performed on Monday.

Over the weekend, news broke of Keough’s passing. Lisa Marie Presley's manager, Roger Widynowski, told "Extra" his client "is entirely heartbroken, inconsolable, and beyond devastated, but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter, Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."

Keough’s ex-girlfriend Alexa Rhode paid tribute to him on social media She wrote on Instagram, “Benjamin Storm, YOU. Always happy in the sun and water. And a laugh that made everyone happier. You gave love to anyone who needed it. You were wise like a thousand year old man, but silly as a 5 year old."

“You always said your favorite tarot card was the hermit, cause you could relate," Rhode continued. "You made the best jokes, and always broke the rules. You were my favorite person from the moment I met you. I wish we could've kept you forever Ben Ben."

Keough was a budding musician who in 2009 landed a big-bucks record deal and who did some acting, but he otherwise kept a very low profile for being a member of one of America's most famous families.

Along with his parents, he is survived by his sister, actress Riley Keough, his half-sisters, twins Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love, and his grandmother, Priscilla Presley.
