After being released by Colombian authorities, the body of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has been flown to the United States.

Hawkins’ family are preparing funeral plans after an autopsy was completed over the weekend following the drummer’s shocking death on Friday.

According to investigators in the Colombian capital Bogota, Hawkins used 10 narcotic substances, including marijuana, tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opiates.

Hawkins’ hotel room reportedly contained a white powder similar to cocaine and hallucinogens, according to local sources.

According to a private developer, Hawkins will be buried at home.

According to the autopsy, Hawkins’ heart weighed twice that of a normal man his age, and he died of heart failure after taking a mixture of drugs.

According to the Colombian magazine Capana, Hawkins’ heart weighed “at least 600 grams” after his sudden death in a luxury hotel in the capital, more than twice the 300 to 350 grams typical for a person his age.

The drummer had overdosed on heroin in combination with antidepressants and benzodiazepines, including anxiolytic drugs known as benzos, according to authorities.

A police officer who entered Hawkins’ room at the Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina told prosecutors he noticed a “cocaine-like” white substance, according to prominent Colombian journalist Luis Carlos Velez, director of an FM radio station in Bogota.

The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) in Bogotá, on the other hand, did not include cocaine in its post-mortem statement.

Concerns about the drummer’s health first surfaced on Friday night when he complained of chest problems ahead of the band’s headlining performance at the Estereo Picnic Festival in Bogotá.

His condition then deteriorated and efforts by a GP and an ambulance to revive him failed.

It can be recalled that Hawkins, a father of three, was in a coma for about a week after a heroin overdose in London in 2001.

Fellow musicians including Nickelback, Ozzy Osbourne and Billy Idol paid tribute to Hawkins on social media.

“Totally in disbelief at the Taylor Hawkins news. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, bandmates, crew, friends and everyone who was ever touched by the music he created with @FooFighters, @Alanis and so many others. This is so incredibly sad,” Nickelback wrote on Instagram.

Taylor Hawkins has been described as a “great human being” and an “amazing musician” by Ozzy Osbourne, who promised to “see him on the other side”.

“@TaylorHawkins was a truly great person and a great musician,” Osbourne tweeted.

“My heart, love and condolences go out to his wife, children, family, band and fans.

“See you on the other side – Ozzy.”

Miley Cyrus revealed on Instagram that her next concert will be dedicated to the drummer.

She posted a black and white photo of Taylor on stage rocking out to his drum kit and flashing his trademark smile.

“This is how I will always remember you…” she captioned her photo, before adding: “My show tomorrow is dedicated to Taylor Hawkins.”

At the time of his death, the Foo Fighters were on tour in South America. The band played in San Isidro, Argentina last Sunday and were due to play in Bogotá, Colombia on Friday night – the day his death was announced.

Fans gathered outside the Estereo Picnic Festival stage, with candles lit on stage, according to photos shared on social media.

The band was scheduled to play the Grammy Awards on April 3 and begin a new North American tour in May.

Sir Paul McCartney inducted him and the Foo Fighters into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2021.
