Tom Petty’s cause of death ‘deferred’
Tom Petty's cause of death has been listed as 'deferred' according to reports.
The music legend sadly passed away on October 2 at the age of 66.

TMZ has reportedly obtained Petty’s death certificate, which doesn’t specify a cause of death. Instead, it lists the cause as 'deferred', meaning that they could still be waiting for autopsy results.
