It was first believed that Bias had died of a heart attack. But an autopsy conducted by Smialek re- vealed that Bias' heart was in good although it was quickly stopped by the unusually pure form of cocaine. Smialek said the autopsy also showed that heart was not damaged during the seizure and that there were no other drugs or alcohol hi his body. No evidence of heart disease was found. There also was no evidence of previous drug and the medical examiner said it was possible that Bias had never taken cocaine before last week. Prince George's County State's Attorney Arthur A.
