Foxwoods CEO's death linked to heart disease
Mashantucket — Felix Rappaport, the Foxwoods Resort Casino chief executive found dead Monday in his hotel suite at the casino, died of heart disease, the state medical examiner’s office told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The cause of death was based on Rappaport’s health history. No autopsy was conducted because there was no sign of foul play, according to the office.
Rappaport, 65, joined Foxwoods in February 2014 after a lengthy gaming career in Las Vegas and was named Foxwoods' president and chief executive officer in November 2014.
“We continue to keep Felix’s family in our thoughts, and remember the positive impact that he had on all of our lives and the gaming industry at large,” Rodney Butler, chairman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, which owns Foxwoods, said Wednesday.
The tribe announced Rappaport’s death Monday.
