Since Alien Huang’s (黃鴻升) sudden passing on September 16, there have been a lot of questions looming over the mystery of his death. Initial reports stated Alien Huang’s cause of death was sudden cardiac arrest and not getting treated right away as he lived alone. After Alien Huang’s family agreed to investigate his death, the medical examiner performed an autopsy at the funeral parlor where Alien Huang’s body was held.
According to Taiwanese media, Alien Huang had been diagnosed with hereditary kidney disease 8 years ago. His body check up last year returned mostly normal indexes aside from the kidney disease. Based on the autopsy, the medical examiner reported Alien Huang’s head injuries were not obvious. They claim Alien Huang’s kidney disease was not severe enough to cause his death. The main cause of death was a heart attack.
Alien Huang was said to be in a very peaceful and sleep-like condition when he was found. It’s reported he passed away quickly. The medical examiner said, “Even if there was someone by his side at the time, it still would’ve been very hard to save him.”
However, Alien Huang’s manager, Dino, spoke with the media and said his death was caused by “blocked blood vessels due to aortic dissection”. When asked about Alien Huang’s health and if he had any underlying diseases, Dino said, “None, in fact he has done physicals and everything was normal.”
As for the public viewing, Alien Huang’s family chose this picture of him from 2 years ago when he went to Hong Kong to promote his album at the time. Alien Huang’s record company, Rock Records, revealed the picture was chosen by Mr. Huang, who particularly liked this photo.
