Taylor Hawkins' heart weighed double that of men his age as an autopsy finds the Foo Fighters drummer suffered a 'cardiovascular collapse' after binging on a cocktail of drugs including heroin, marijuana, and opioids, investigators have said.

Forensic experts are said to have discovered it weighed 'at least 600 grams', double the average of 300 to 350 grams, during an examination following his shock death at a luxury hotel in Colombian capital Bogota on Friday.

Investigators have concluded the 50-year-old suffered cardiovascular collapse after binging on a cocktail of drugs, respected Colombian news magazine Semana reported.

It also said authorities had confirmed the Foo Fighters drummer had overdosed on heroin mixed with antidepressants and benzodiazepines which are psychoactive drugs known as benzos. 

Colombia’s Attorney General’s office (AGO) has already confirmed an initial autopsy carried out on Saturday revealed traces of 10 different drugs in Hawkins’ urine, including opioids which can range from heroin to fentanyl and morphine.

In a statement, it also revealed marihuana and antidepressants had been detected. 

Well-known Colombian journalist Luis Carlos Velez, the Bogota-based director of radio station FM, said earlier today that a police officer who entered Hawkins' room at the Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina had told prosecutors he saw a 'cocaine-like' white powder.

However, the AGO did not mention cocaine in its post-autopsy statement.

Concerns about the drummer's health first arose on Friday night when he began complaining of chest pains prior to the band's headline performance at the Estereo Picnic Festival in Bogota.

His condition subsequently deteriorated and efforts to revive him by a private doctor and city emergency responders failed.

In its statement released late on Saturday, Colombia’s AGO said: 'Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins was found dead in a hotel room on Friday in Bogota.

'After concluding an initial forensic examination of the body the AGO would like to communicate the following:

'1) Preliminary results of the urine toxicology test indicate the presence of 10 different substances: THX (Marihuana), tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and opioids among others.

'2) The National Institute of Forensic Medicine continues to conduct the necessary medical studies to ascertain the cause of death.

'3) The AGO will continue to investigate and will duly inform the findings of forensic examinations in due time.'
