In recent months, numerous famous athletes have passed away in shocking situations off the field. Recently, the 8-time All-Star for the Phillies and Blue Jays, Roy Halladay, died in a plane crash.
Witnesses reported seeing Halladay, the only passenger in his plane, flying erratically and making dangerous maneuvers. Halladay was also flying over the ocean when he suddenly dipped too low and crashed into the water.
Boaters in the area rushed to his downed plane, however, it was too late. Halladay had perished in the crash at just 40 years old.
Now, a new autopsy report has just Beene released and it is raising some questions about the famous baseball star. According to reports, the coroner lists the cause of death as blunt trauma and drowning ... but points out the MLB star had morphine in his system.
"The toxicology results show Halladay had zolpidem (the generic name for Ambien), as well as morphine in his system at the time of the crash. The tests also came back positive for amphetamines," according to TMZ.
Halladay's blood was said to contain 72 ng/ml of zolpidem. According to experts, even only 50 ng/ml can drastically impair cognitive functions in adults. As for the morphine in his blood, doctors say it could be found as a result of heroin usage, though friends and family say he was not a user of heroin.
