MADRID (AP) - A Spanish court says autopsy results show Irish Boyzone star Stephen Gately died of natural causes.
A Balearic Islands Superior Tribunal statement Tuesday says the autopsy shows Gately died as a result of a pulmonary edema, or fluid in the lungs.
It said there were no signs of violence to the body and adds that Gately's remains can now be flown home.
Gately was found dead on Saturday in a house near Port d'Andratx on the western tip of the Balearic holiday island of Mallorca.
The Irish singer had gone to Mallorca with his partner Andrew Cowles.
