Cody returned several hours later to reveal the cause of his sister's death which was determined to be a result of natural causes. In a statement posted on Twitter, Cody said, "I hate that I even have to do this, but apparently the world and internet is a cluster of twisted misinformation." He wrote, "In my original post I had stated we had no information to try and prevent that, but to expel rumors I will provide an update. The medical examiner has completed autopsy and there was no indication of foul play or self harm. Simply put, Cady Groves died of natural causes."

He continued by saying his sister "had some medical problems last fall" adding, "our best guess at this point until further testing is complete is that they had resurfaced." He further asked, "Please respect her name and family before sharing information that did not come directly from here."

Cody also revealed that Cady "was really looking forward to the next few months and release of her new album." He added, "Our latest in-depth conversation (since most were witty banter) was her sending me songs to critique and give feedback on."
