The Cook County medical examiner’s office today confirmed that Kelly’s body was brought to the morgue and that the cause of death was  salicylate intoxication.

Salicylates are used in pain medications.

Blogojevich released the following statement:

“I am deeply saddened to hear that Chris has died. My heart goes out to his wife, Carmen, his three daughters, Grace, Jacqueline, and Claire and his entire family. They are in our prayers.”

Kelly was a top fundraiser for Blagojevich.  He was indicted at the same time as Bologojevich.
