Update: Tommy Morrison has been cremated and death certificate makes no mention of HIV/AIDS

Message from Tommy to Trisha

There are lots of rumors swirling out there regarding the passing of Tommy Morrison and the plans for his remains. MMADIRT.com’s Darren Barcomb just received confirmation from Tommy’s wife Trisha regarding the official cause of “Duke’s” death as well as information on his cremation.

According to the Duchess, “The Death Certificate lists the causes of death as: cardiac arrest, multiple organ failure, septic shock, and pseudomonas aeruginosa septicemia….and NOT Full Blown HIV/AIDS.”

Contrary to reports from TMZ last night that Tommy had already been cremated, the Duchess confirmed that he was scheduled from cremation today at noon and added “Please say a prayer. My heart is broken as is yours and the grief is insurmountable. I love you Tommy with all my heart and I never gave up on you and you were never buried as a “full blown AIDS victim” as per your choices and wishes and as per the cause of death confirmation.”

According to Trisha, the and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Septicemia was an infection that resulted from mistreatment of his wounds and stated “I will pursue it with the doctor in TN that left the 12ft of gauze in his chest. You bet I will and I hope Tommy’s mother will help me because she was with me those first few months after his surgery.”

Also, while it has been reported that there was no autopsy, it should be noted that blood was drawn for an official EM autopsy. More information to follow on that…..
