Chris Kelly

 

(CNN) — Atlanta-area authorities are investigating Wednesday’s death of Chris Kelly, half of the 1990s rap duo Kris Kross, as a possible drug overdose, Fulton County Police Cpl. Kay Lester said Thursday morning.

Kelly, 34, died Wednesday at an Atlanta hospital after he was found unresponsive at his home, police said.

After paramedics took him to the hospital, a woman who identified herself as Kelly’s friend told an investigator that Kelly had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine Tuesday night, and that she had brought Kelly home “to recover from his drug use,” according to a police report.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said an autopsy is planned for Thursday.

Kelly, together with Chris Smith, shot to stardom in 1992 with “Jump,” which spent eight weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100.
