Authorities say there's no foul play in the death of a 51-year-old Detroit-area journalist and community activist.
Efforts to revive Angelo Henderson were unsuccessful Saturday when he was found unresponsive in his Pontiac home.
A source in the medial examiner's office told Local 4 Henderson died of natural causes as a result of hypertensive heart disease - high blood pressure and blockage.
Henderson was a host on radio station WCHB. While at The Wall Street Journal, he won a 1999 Pulitzer Prize for a portrait of a Detroit pharmacist driven to violence by encounters with armed robbers.
Those who knew Henderson said his level of energy was unmatched and he had a passion for people.
“Knowing Angelo was an experience,” said fellow radio host Mildred Gaddis. “To even imagine for a moment that he’s no longer here with that gregarious personality and his dramatic personality, is a bit saddening.”
Henderson also co-founded Detroit 300, a crime-fighting organization whose members were residents, civic groups and businesses. He also was an ordained minister.
He is survived by his wife and son.
