Officially, he died of liver failure. However, back in 2011, Jeff Hanneman got bit by a spider and was eventually diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis. Speculation is that the necrotizing fasciitis played a role in the failure of his liver, however his family hasn’t yet confirmed this detail.
No matter how he died, this is a very sad day. R.I.P.
