May 9, 2012: An autopsy report released by the Santa Clara County Coroner’s Office reveals “a lethal level” of alcohol, combined with benzodiazepine, the anti-anxiety medication known as Valium, in Kinkade’s blood.

She also sought control of $66.3 million from Kinkade’s estate.

He made no apologies for commercializing the art field, comparing himself to million-sellers in, say, music and literature.
