Slayer update fans on Jeff Hanneman’s cause of death.

Slayer have posted a statement regarding the cause of death of their late bandmate Jeff Hanneman as well as plans of a form of memorial to him and their own personal thoughts.

The band posted the following:

While the details are being worked out now, Slayer wants its fans to know that there will be a celebration of Jeff Hanneman’s life sometime later this month, along with Jeff’s family and friends, the public will be invited to attend.  More information will be posted here soon.

We’ve just learned that the official cause of Jeff’s death was alcohol related cirrhosis.  While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent Necrotizing fasciitis infection that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life.  Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that.  In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving – he was excited and looking forward to working on a new record.
