The Reno Gazette-Journal reported on its Web site Friday that the Sacramento County Coroner's Office in California officially ruled Aaron Mitchell's death a suicide. The coroner listed his cause of death as cardiac arrest, bodily shock and third-degree burns over 97 percent of his body.
Mitchell died hours after he hurled past two layers of security and into the flames on Sept. 2 at the festival in the Black Rock Desert 90 miles north of Reno.
Mitchell was originally from McAlester, Oklahoma but had been living in Switzerland with his wife, Ladina.
