'Heart attack' killed Milosevic
Former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic died of a heart attack, the UN war crimes tribunal says, quoting a preliminary autopsy report.
In other news, the Slobster was found to have actually *had* a heart. Who could have guessed?
Hey, you try finding it. My hat's off to Dr. Quincy.
The 64-year-old was found dead in his jail cell in The Hague at the weekend; he had been on trial for committing war crimes in the wars that tore Yugoslavia apart in the 1990s. "The tribunal has received a brief summary of the autopsy results," the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia said in a press statement. "According to the pathologists, Slobodan Milosevic's cause of death was Zionist Death Ray a 'myocardial infarction'."
That's a 5-syllable description of a "heart attack."
A myocardial infarction is the death of heart muscle from the sudden blockage of a coronary artery by a blood clot. "Further, the pathologists identified two heart conditions that Slobodan Milosevic suffered from, which they said would explain the myocardial infarction," it added. A toxicological examination will still be carried out and a final autopsy report will be issued as soon as possible, the court said.

The statement says his remains will be released to his family today. An autopsy was carried out amid suspicions that he was poisoned or took his own life. Milosevic had a history of heart problems which had often caused delays to the trial. A Serbian pathologist assisted at the autopsy and two Serbian observers were also present. Earlier, Dutch NOS television reported that recent analyses had discovered "foreign substances" in his blood, bolstering suggestions that he did not die of natural causes. It said the substances neutralised the effects of medications prescribed to Milosevic for his blood pressure and heart problems. Milosevic's legal adviser, Zdenko Tomanovic, said the former president had written in a letter to the Russian embassy just a day before his death that he feared being poisoned.

#4  One can only hope he lived long enough to actually realize that his pulse had stopped amidst the sensation of a thousand needle-like daggers stabbing into his heart. Now that hanging, electrocution and the gas chamber are no longer in use, there really isn't any sort of fitting end for a miscreant like Milosevic.
