Ike Turner Died of Cocaine Overdose

Ike Turner's autopsy reports are in and it looks like he died from a cocaine overdose. Ike had battled an addiction with cocaine since the late 1960's until it finally took his life in December of '07.

"We are listing that he abused cocaine, and that's what resulted in the cocaine toxicity," said Paul Parker, chief investigator at the medical examiner's office.

During his career he was arrested numerous times for drug-related charges. His ex-wife Tina Turner once said that his addiction to the drug transformed him into a violent control freak. He was 76.
