how did hoss die on the show bonanza?

Bonanza is one of the longest running western TV series ever, and Hoss died after 12 seasons. His death was from a cerebral hemorrhage, but it was never classified as suicide or murder. With such a long period of time with little knowledge about how he died, conspiracy theories surrounding his death abounded for awhile. However, enough time has passed that most people have moved on to other mysteries in their lives instead of continuing to ponder Hoss’s body count.
