Comedian Chris Cotton died from a blood clot in his right lung and heart failure due to an enlarged heart. He was 32.

The coroner also listed "morbid obesity" among the "significant conditions" contributing to the comedian's untimely death.

"I conclude the cause of death was due to pulmonary thromboembolism right lung complicated by cardiomegaly," the medical examiner wrote in the report obtained by Radar Online.

Cotton's sister-in-law, Karen Middleton, told Radar Online that Cotton was discovered "slumped over" behind the wheel of his car. He was pronounced dead at a hospital on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

"We are all just shocked that this happened," Middleton said. "He was just going to the store to get some stuff for the baby too."

Cotton and his wife of eight years, Erica, were expecting their first child in February.

The Philadelphia comedian was best known for his stand-up comedy and he was co-host of Comedy Central's streaming talk show Every Damn Day.

The network shared the news of his death on Wednesday via Twitter.

"We're devastated by the loss of Chris Cotton -- a hilarious comedian, a beloved member of the Comedy Central family and a joy to be around. He will be missed," the network wrote.

A GoFundMe page raised over $50,000 for Cotton's family.

Morbid obesity simply means severely overweight. People who who are diagnosed with morbid obesity have a significant risk of death.

Morbid obesity is defined as 100 pounds over your ideal body weight or a body mass index (BMI) higher than 30.

Dylan Hafertepen, Jack Chapman

An Australian man died of a pulmonary emboli (silicone in his lung) after injecting silicone into his scrotum to appease his cult leader lover.

Jack Chapman, pictured right, was part of the dominance submission cult scene in Seattle, Washington. He went by the name "Pup Tank."

Chapman, 28, died in a Seattle area hospital after going into respiratory arrest from the effects of silicone embolism syndrome last month, according to the Daily Mail UK.

Dylan Hafertepen, pictured left, led an "inflation fetish" cult that requires its members to inject their scrotums with liquid silicone.

The members of the cult injected silicone to please Hafertepen, who preferred men to look swole like him.

Chapman reportedly traveled from Melbourne, Australia to the U.S. to meet Hafertepen. He eventually moved in with Hafertepen and four other men.

In a dramatic episode of 'The Project' on Tuesday, Chapman's mother, Linda Chapman, confronted Hafertepen, who traveled to Melbourne to deliver her son's ashes to her.

Ms. Chapman was visibly shaken as she ordered Hafertepen out of her house. She blamed Hafertepen for her son's death and told him to leave her home.

She described Jack as "Someone who feels so badly about themselves, someone who was vulnerable, who just wanted your love at any cost... and the cost of his life."

Hafertepen's Facebook page features photos of the muscular cult members -- all with enlarged scrotums from injecting silicone.

Hafertepen refers to the men as "his pups" or "obedient puppies" who must act in submission to win his love and affection.

In the weeks before he died, Jack allegedly changed his will, leaving his $200,000 inheritance to Mr. Hafertepen, who is pictured below left.

No charges have been filed in Jack's death.

Hillary Clinton blood clot

There is sad news to report today. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was hospitalized over the weekend with a blood clot.

A blood clot is a lump of red blood cells gelled together.

Mrs. Clinton fell at home and suffered a concussion earlier this month. She has not been seen publicly in 3 weeks. Doctors discovered the blood clot when they ran follow-up tests this weekend.

Clinton was immediately hospitalized and administered blood thinners to dissolve the clot (thrombolytics) and/or to prevent other clots from forming (anticoagulants).

Mrs. Clinton may have had a blood clot in her lung that traveled up her leg after being bedridden for 3 weeks. But the clot could have formed in her brain after she fell.
