The surprising death of Mirco Nontschew († 52) put fans and the comedy world in mourning. But the question of the cause of his death continues to cause speculation and meanwhile disputes.
According to the “Bild” newspaper, the comedy star died of natural causes. At least that is what the long-time friend and manager Bertram Riedel explained to the newspaper. The autopsy was therefore completed: “He died a natural death.” However, the manager did not want to disclose any more details about the cause of death: “It is important to us that the speculation in the past few days about the death of Mirko Nontschew can stop and the family can mourn in peace.”
But the public prosecutor’s office now contradicts this. At the request of the TV broadcaster RTL, she said that she knew nothing about the completion of the autopsy. There is still no official final report. The evaluation of the toxicological studies is ongoing. The cause of death investigation could take weeks, as the public prosecutor emphasizes. At some point there will be a written report with the result. If there is a natural cause of death or suicide, the public prosecutor does not inform the public because it is a private matter.
