PREVIOUS REPORT: Grossman family: No evidence protest pepper spray or OD caused death; review continues
Grossman was a 2016 Springboro High School graduate who graduated Cum Laude on May 3 from Ohio State University with a degree in environmental sciences. Grossman died at Sycamore Hospital in Miamisburg after being rushed there by family from their Centerville home.
Montgomery County Coroner Kent Harshbarger released a cause of death today “as coronary artery dissection due to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. The death has been ruled natural.”
A statement from Grossman’s family says Grossman was not previously diagnosed with the syndrome.
Ehlers-Danlos syndromes are a group of connective tissue disorders that can be inherited and result in, among other things, arterial fragility or rupture, according to the Ehlers-Danlos Society website.
