As Us Weekly reported previously, Michael was exposed to cold temperatures before he died in Salt Wash, Utah. His body was discovered on Thursday, December 10, at approximately 10:30 a.m. local time, in what Grand County Sheriff Steven White described as a “steep and very rocky area.”

And on Tuesday, February 9, Grand County sheriff officials confirmed via a news release that the frigid temperatures which led to hypothermia after the crash was his official cause of death.

White told ABC News on Tuesday that they were still waiting on toxicology reports to find out if Michael had any drugs in his system. White said the autopsy report closes the case, but questions may forever linger about what exactly happened.
