Short’s wife died of natural causes

Retired actress Nancy Dolman died on Saturday (21Aug10) at the couple’s home in Pacific Palisades, California. The 58 year old had been battling cancer, according to a 2007 tabloid report, but a publicist for the actor declined to comment on the cause of death.

L.A. County Coroner Chief Craig Harvey confirms officials have ended their investigation after determining Dolman died of natural causes.

In a statement released on Tuesday (24Aug10), he says: “(Nancy Dolman) was under the care of a private physician for a natural disease. There will be no coroner involvement.”
