He went on to explain an autopsy had taken place and his sister's death was down to natural causes.

Cody added: "I hate that I even have to do this, but apparently the world and internet is a cluster of twisted misinformation.

In my original post I had stated we had no information to try and prevent that, but to expel rumours I will provide an update.

"The medical examiner has completed autopsy and there was no indication of foul play or self harm. Simply put, Cady Groves died of natural causes."

Cody added that his sister had some previous medical problems last year but can't confirm if it was related to her death.

He wrote: "She had some medical problems last fall and our best guess at this point until further testing is complete is that they had resurfaced.

"Please respect her name and family before sharing information that did not come directly from here."

Groves, born in Emporia, Kansas, first found success in 2009 and 2010 with her acoustic-pop albums, "A Month of Sundays" and "The Life of a Pirate." Her latest music, the independently-released EP "Dreams," debuted in 2015. It featured the singles "Oil & Water" and "Crying Game."

Lagos Police explains why they are still detaining Clarence Peters over Kodak's death

The Lagos state Police has explained why they are still detaining Clarence Peters over the death of popular dancer, Kodak.

LIB reported earlier that Kodak died after being electrocuted while charging her phone at the ace music video director's studio at Omole Estate, Lagos.

Though Clarence Peters had debunked report of him being arrested as he revealed that he willingly made himself available to the police, Lagos State Police Spokesperson Bala Elkana told Premium Times on Monday May 4, that he is still in their custody.

Bala said they are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of the dancer and also waiting for the autopsy result. He further revealed that the investigation is a natural course, and also important for Clarence Peters and any other person who was there.

He said;

“My response has been clear. Do we have him in custody, I say we do. Why do you have him in custody? We are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of the dancer.

“We are also waiting for the autopsy result. Investigation is a natural cause. It is important for him and it is also good for any other person who was there. If nobody has a hand in it, the report will clear everybody. If the result says it is a murder case, the law will take its cause. That is exactly why we have him, that is exactly what we are doing."
