Likely Cause of Goldie's Death

I heard that Goldie harvey who passed on last night in the arms of her close friend, Derenle Edun at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island may have died of complications resulting from Deep vein Thrombosis(DVT)

The severe headache she had before her death is one of the life threatening sypmtons of DVT.
other symptoms are:dizziness
severe headaches
severe stomach pain
increased weakness
red or brown urine
bruises that increase in size without further injury
red or black bowel movements
cuts that do not stop bleeding
coughing up blood
any unusual or unexplained bleeding.

While yet another source say they got a report from Reddington hospital, where Goldie died last night, that the likely cause of her sudden death is pulmonary embolism.

According to an article on the New York Times website, “Life-threatening blood clots and flying have been linked for more than 50 years, but a new study of business travelers confirms the risk, particularly for those who take long flights or fly frequently. “Immobility is considered a major factor behind the condition, called deep vein thrombosis.

 “But while it is often referred to as “economy-class syndrome” because of the cramped seating there, D.V.T. also occurs among those who fly in business class and first class, the researchers found.

“People who fly four hours or more, the study found, have three times the risk of developing clots compared with periods when they did not travel.

 “D.V.T. occurs when a blood clot forms within the large deep veins of the body, usually in the leg. If untreated, part of the clot may break off and travel to the lungs, where it can cause a pulmonary embolism, a potentially fatal condition.”

A report on National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s website, noted that “pulmonary embolism is a very serious condition. It can damage the lungs and other organs in the body and cause death.

 According to close friends, the singer and former Big Brother contestant, was a frequent traveler and had complained of stress in the past weeks, but insisted she was fine.

Her corpse was deposited at the LASU General Hospital this morning.

For now, it's still all speculations. I'll get back when I'm able to confirm the real cause of her death.

May her beautiful soul rest in peace. 


  1. I hope there'll be a clear cause of death soon. It may not bring her back, but people will at least know what to avoid.

  2. Ha, life. They way people die this days is just scary
