Doctors told Monkees star Davy Jones that he was the & # 39; heart of a 25-year-old & # 39; had a year before a fatal cardiac arrest at the age of 66
- Jones's arteries were hardened by alcohol and drug use and he was & # 39; dying slowly & # 39;
- But medical tests could not detect the problems before fatal heart attack in 2012
- The American pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter says he discovered the damage during an autopsy
Jones's arteries were hardened from his alcohol and drug use and he was & # 39; dying slowly & # 39; long before a fatal heart attack occurred in 2012
Monkees star Davy Jones died of a heart attack a year after doctors mistakenly told him that he & # 39; had the heart of a 25-year-old, it has emerged.
In reality, Jones's arteries were hardened to his alcohol and drug use and he was & # 39; dying slowly & # 39; long before the fatal attack in 2012 when he was 66.
Friends claimed in a new episode of the American TV series Autopsy: The Last Hours Of … that he has undergone various medical tests that have not detected the damage.
His biographer, Eric Lefcowitz, said: "The year before he died, Davy told us all that they had said he still had the heart of a 25-year-old. He looked extremely fit and healthy for his age. & # 39;
But the American pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter says his autopsy told a different story, according to a report from the documentary in The Sunday Express.
Dr. Hunter blamed alcohol and marijuana use for the poor condition of Jones & arteries and said stress caused by the breakup of his third marriage with dancer Jessica Pacheco could have exacerbated the problem.
On the day he died, the Daydream Believer singer complained of pain in his chest caused by heartburn.
Dr. Hunter said the condition of his heart suggested that he masked how much pain he was actually suffering.
The pop icon – who was born in Manchester – married 33-year-old Mrs. Pacheo in August 2009.
In May 2011, the singer said that he had some of the happiest times he has ever had in his life.
He explained: & # 39; We have love. We have friendship. She is also aware of what I have done in music and the fact that I no longer really have to prove anything. & # 39;
Jones joined The Monkees in 1965 along with Micky, Peter and Michael Nesmith – who did not rejoin the group last year for their shows – and they set a number of hit records, including Daydream Believer, Last Train To Clarksville and I believer.
