‘Magnum, P.I.’ Star Died from Heart Disease


Tom Selleck‘s Emmy-winning “Magnum, P.I.” co-star, John Hillerman, died from heart disease … TMZ has learned.

A spokesperson at the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Texas tells us Hillerman had hypertensive arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease which proved fatal. We’re told he also had complications due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as well as congestive heart failure.

John played Higgins — Selleck’s condescending, yet lovable, landlord on the ’80s hit TV show.

As we reported, he died at his home in Houston last month. He was 84.
