On July 29, 1974, an angel with a beautiful voice was ushered up into Heaven. Cass Elliot, one-fourth of the pop group The Mamas and The Papas, died of a heart attack. A vicious urban myth perpetuates to this day that she died because she choked on a ham sandwich. The truth is that her heart was weakened by all of her dieting and binging, often losing 50 to 100 pounds at a time only to pack it back on...She was only 32 years old when she passed.
Rest In Peace, Cass Elliot
