49 years ago She Didn't Choke in a Ham Sandwich

Singer-songwriter Cass Elliot born as Ellen Naomi Cohen aka Mama Cass dies of heart failure due to fatty myocardial degeneration due to obesity at the age of 33 in Flat 12, 9 Curzon Square, Mayfair, London, Greater London, United Kingdom.

There is an urban legend that Elliot choked to death in a ham sandwich. The Who drummer Keith Moon died of a drug overdose also at 32 years old in the same flat four years later.
