    The Oscar and Grammy winner died on Aug. 6, 2012, after a brief illness, and coroners listed respiratory arrest, hypertension and brain damage from a lack of oxygen as the reason for the 68-year-old's passing.

    However, his TV broadcaster wife, Terre Blair, believes there may have been other factors leading to his death and has asked a Manhattan Supreme Court judge to force doctors at Columbia University Medical Center to hand over the results of blood tests done shortly before Hamlisch's demise, reports the New York Post.
