Heavy D

Over 300 Pounds When He Died,

Autopsy Set for Today

11/9/2011 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heavy D weighed 344 pounds at the time of his death yesterday ... law enforcement tells TMZ.

Officials recorded Heavy's height and weight as part of their investigation into his sudden and unexpected passing. We're told the rapper measured in at 6'4".

Heavy famously lost 135 pounds back in 2003 -- but insisted the decision to drop the weight was in an effort to get acting roles ... and wasn't health related.

An autopsy is scheduled to begin this morning.

TMZ broke the story ... Heavy D died yesterday after collapsing outside of his Beverly Hills condo.

Heavy was big, but he didn't look to be 344 lbs. I would have guessed 2 something.

It just amazes me how people are assuming that Heavy's weight contributed to his death. We don't know yet. It could be entirely unrelated to his weight.

It is sad when we cannot think of a anything to say nice about a person that has just died. Those people that are sitting at home writing negative things are probably just as big if not bigger than Heavy D was, still you past judgement. It is a sad day in the world when someones life is not held in high regard because of race, weight, or just being a human being. I am truly disgusted by some of these comments....but you know what it doesn't matter, this will be read and some loser will dislike or comment for being a any case R.I.P Heavy D my heart goes out to your wife and kids!

Typical of people to think the only thing a fat person can die of is heart attack.
