An autopsy has ruled out foul play in the mysterious death of CorePower Yoga founder


Trevor Tice, the 48-year-old yoga mogul whose mysterious and untimely death rattled devout CorePower enthusiasts, suffered multiple blows to the head and face following a series of drunken falls in his Sunset Cliffs home, an autopsy released Thursday concluded. 

After Tice's bloodied body was found in his residence on Dec. 12, homicide detectives were called in because officers had felt the death was suspicious.

According to the report, Tice was intoxicated--measuring a blood-alcohol level of .20 percent-- and had a tranquilizer and other anti-depressant drugs in his system. 

The founder of CorePower also had liver disease, the report detailed, which contributed to his death.

"His liver disease could reasonably have contributed to a decreased ability to coagulate blood, and to increased bleeding from his injuries, and alone (absent the head injuries) could have resulted in death,” the report read.

Tice, who founded CorePower Yoga in 2002, was last seen on Dec. 9--three days before his death. One neighbor told detectives that she got in an argument with Tice, who appeared intoxicated while walking her dog.  

The popular yoga franchise spread to nearly 160 studios nationwide.
