Two months after Dushon Monique Brown‘s sudden passing, her cause of death is now known.
The Chicago Fire actress died from sepsis of an unknown etiology, which is as an infection of the blood of unknown origin, the Cook County Medical Examiner confirms to E! News. Other contributing factors included obesity and high blood pressure.
According to Health Line, “Sepsis develops when the chemicals the immune system releases into the bloodstream to fight an infection cause inflammation throughout the entire body instead.”
Robert Schroeder, DuShon’s manager, also paid tribute to the fallen star.
“We are very sad to announce the untimely death of beloved Chicago actress DuShon Monique Brown. DuShon, most affectionately known to many as Connie on NBC’s Chicago Fire, died suddenly Friday morning of natural causes. We are devastated by the loss of a very talented and kindhearted soul. DuShon was a film, television, commercial and voice-over actress who also graced the stages of many Chicago theaters. She brought laughter and joy to many and will be greatly missed. At this difficult time we ask that the privacy of the family and loved ones be respected.”
Dushon is survived by her daughter.
