Kimbo Slice's Death Not Suspicious ... Medical Examiner Says


Kimbo Slice's body will not be tested for things like steroids or drugs ... at least, not by the medical examiner's office which tells TMZ Sports there's nothing suspicious about Kimbo's death. 

After the 42-year-old passed away suddenly near his home in Coral Springs, FL Monday -- we reached out to the Broward County Medical Examiner to find out if an autopsy would be performed. 

We were told ... "We were informed of his death and after review of the circumstances, we declined jurisdiction. It is not a medical examiner case."

We asked if that meant the office believes his death is not suspicious and there's no need for toxicology tests -- to which the M.E. Chief told us, "No medical legal investigation, including toxicology is necessary.”

Slice reportedly tested positive for a banned steroid during his fight at Bellator 149 back in February.

Just because the coroner decided not to order an autopsy doesn't mean the family has to stay in the dark. They can pay for a private examination -- though it's unclear if they're even considering that option.
