The Associated Press is reporting that Micah True died of heart disease in late March when he went missing in the Gila National Forest. The news agency obtained a copy of the long awaited autopsy report.
“The report showed that True, 58, had cardiomyopathy, a disease that results in the heart becoming enlarged. While medical examiners couldn’t point to the cause of the heart disease, they said True’s left ventricle, which pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of the body, had become thick and was dilated,” AP reported in its story.
According to the report when friends asked the renowned ultra runner if he had a vice, he would reply, “vanilla ice cream.”
