ROME (AP) - A friend of "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini says an autopsy confirmed that the actor died of a heart attack.
Friend Michael Kobold said Friday that there was no evidence of foul play or substance abuse. He said Gandolfini's body has been released to a funeral director and that the family is working to get through the red tape to get the body back to the United States.
Gandolfini died Wednesday night after being discovered in a Rome hotel room by a family member. A funeral is planned in New York.
He was en route to the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, where he was scheduled to give a special class on Saturday. The festival instead is organizing a tribute to him.
