Well, the ugly truth that we all knew has been revealed!
An autopsy report revealed that a mega-church pastor found dead in his hotel room died of a drug overdose.
The Associated Press reports that Zachary Tims’ autopsy revealed that he died of the effects of cocaine and heroin. Tims was found dead on the floor of the W Hotel in Times Sq. in August 2011.
Tims was the senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, a mega-church in central Florida. He began his 7,000 member church in 1996 and made it his mission to keep young people out of trouble, since he himself had a troubled past.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
The NYC Office of Chief Medical Examiner’s release says Tims died of “acute intoxication by the combined effects of cocaine and heroin. Manner of death: Accident.”
Although the New York City Police ruled there was no foul play involved in Tims’ death, published reports said that police found a packet of powder in his pants pocket. The nature of the powder is unknown but led to speculation that Tims died of a drug overdose.
“He tried hard to heal himself, to fix himself,” said T.D. Jakes, chief pastor of The Potter’s House in Dallas, according to the Sentinel.
Tims’ death has been ruled accidental.
