Aaliyah's casket was closed; she died in an airplane crash.

The plane burst into flames immediately after hitting the ground; almost every corpse that was found was badly burned and mangled.

The coroner's autopsy report states that she suffered severe burns, a blow to the head, and severe shock. She had a heart attack during the time the plane was going down.

The report said she was found an estimated 10 - 15 feet away from the plane.

After medics and police finished searching the debris for any more belongings or bodies, they said that Aaliyah's chair had been ejected from the burning plane while she was still strapped into it and had landed yards away from the crash.

When police and Bahamian officials found her, she was curled up on her left side, like she was bracing herself. Her head was between her legs and her hair had been completely singed off.
