Autopsy: The Last Hours of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (2019)

Cable TV network REELZ have produced a brand new episode in their ‘Autopsy‘ series, which is a documentary-style television series that investigates the tragic, controversial and sudden deaths of celebrities.

This episode is based on the late, great Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. It premiered on March 24, 2019.

The producers speak to Lisa’s siblings; Reigndrop and Ronald Lopes, as well as Forensic Pathologist Dr Michael Hunter, who will look into the circumstances behind the tragedy and find out exactly what happened in the accident.

As a fan, I felt this episode brought some closure to the whole tragedy of losing such an idol, icon and inspirational individual. However, some of the detailed information about the exact cause of death is not for everyone, so be prepared.

Rest in peace, Lisa Nicole Lopes.

A true Supernova.

Synopsis

The road was quiet, conditions were dry and initial reports suggest that hers was the only car on the road. Lisa was one third of the phenomenally successful girl band TLC and her death was met with shock and hysteria. Lisa was 5ft tall but her feisty volatile nature often brought her into contact with the law. Yet at the height of TLC’s fame she began to spend more and more time in a mysterious Jungle retreat that was set up by self-proclaimed healer Dr Sebi. Did Dr Sebi’s strict dietary regime have any influence on her tragic accident? In this episode, Forensic Pathologist Dr Michael Hunter looks at the last three weeks in the life on this musical Icon to try to work out how and why she was killed.
