Update from TMZ
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Kim Porter went to bed early last night because she wasn’t feeling well and when family members went to wake her Thursday she was non-responsive. Paramedics pronounced Kim dead at her home.
As for the cause … we’re told she was battling an illness — either the flu or pneumonia — over the last few days and was being treated with Saline and vitamins. Authorities are also looking at a recent trip Kim took to Africa, to determine if she contracted a disease.
No illegal drugs were found. The coroner will perform an autopsy and perform toxicology tests. The coroner’s van just left Porter’s home.
Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call to Porter’s Toluca Lake home around noon. Police are still on the scene right now.
According to emergency dispatch audio the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest.
A source connected to Kim tells us she’d been suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks, but it’s still unclear what exactly caused her death. Another source says Kim had contacted her doctor just yesterday complaining she wasn’t feeling any better.
