The autopsy report on one-time Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers is in. It says the 82-year-old Vickers died from heart disease.

The badly decomposed body of the 1959 Playmate was found last month in her Benedict Canyon home.

The grounds were badly neglected with vegetation overgrowing much of the house.

No foul play was suspected.

The report did not specify a time of death.

Investigators believe the remains could have been there from a few months up to a year.
