Cause of Death Determined for Bluegrass Legend

An autopsy has shown a central Kentucky country and bluegrass music performer died early Sept. 22 from burns and smoke inhalation when his tour bus caught fire.

The Madison County coroner says Larry Fuller often slept in the bus that was adjacent to his house in Richmond, Ky.

Police say there was no indication of foul play.

58-year-old Fuller has recorded more than 20 albums in the last 30 years.

In 2000, he was commissioned a Kentucky colonel for his commitment to keeping bluegrass music alive and was inducted into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
