British reggae singer Smiley Culture died of a single stab wound to the heart during a police raid, according to autopsy results.

Officials at the Independent Police Complaints Commission - a U.K. watchdog group - have launched an inquiry into the incident and investigators are gathering forensic evidence and detailed accounts from the arresting officers at the scene on the day Culture, real name David Emmanuel, lost his life.
His death still remains under investigation.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
