Sherman Hemsley will not undergo an autopsy ... and the medical examiner has confirmed that he died of natural causes.

El Paso police say they do not suspect foul play in the actor's death. The ME's office did say Hemsley had been ill, but did not elaborate.

As TMZ first reported ... Hemsley died yesterday in his El Paso home. He was most famous for playing TV's George Jefferson -- first on "All in the Family", and then on the spinoff "The Jeffersons."

He was 74.

first off he wasn't murdered or overdosed...

any illness that can cause death can be considered natural causes. Most of the time its a well known factor that the person is dealing with and their Doctor talks with the coroner and they go from there.

This is a very common and has been for many many years. His death cert will say natural causes but if there was a suspected cause like heart disease or cancer etc they will list that as well..
