    Sports Illustrated

    The circumstances regarding the November 7 death of former All-Star pitcher Roy Halladay have brought some new revelations to light.

    Nearly four weeks ago on January 19, several sources broke the news that Halladay had a mix of drugs in his system when he crashed his ICON A5 into the Gulf of Mexico.

    According to USA TODAY, Halladay’s autopsy revealed evidence of amphetamine, morphine, the sleeping medication Ambien, and the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozak) present during his final moments.

    Blunt force trauma and drowning were also contributing factors to Halladay’s death.

    The autopsy report obtained by USA TODAY came from the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner’s Office.

    Just awful news. Hearing about Halladay’s death was unfortunate enough, but learning about his impairment makes it that much worse.

    Halladay, who would’ve turned 41 this May, went 203-105 in 16 Major League seasons for the Toronto Blue Jays (1998-2009) and Philadelphia Phillies (2010-13).
