Roy Halladay autopsy reveals morphine, amphetamine in system at time of death

Report: Autopsy Shows Roy Halladay Had Morphine In System At Time Of Death

Halladay was found in about six feet of water with a blood-alcohol content level of 0.01.

Additionally, Halladay also had the sedative zolpidem - commonly sold under the brand name Ambien - in his body at the time of the crash, TMZ reports, citing a report released by the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office.

Halladay, 40, crashed the plane about a month after receiving it.

The coroner's report also noted that morphine may be found in a person's system following heroin use, but it has not been determined that Halladay used any illegal drugs before his death.

Andrew Knapp, who wore Halladay's No. 34 last season, volunteered to give up the number after the pitcher's death.

Whether Halladay had prescriptions for these drugs is something we don't know.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that an autopsy released Friday shows the former Blue Jays and Phillies All-Star died from blunt force trauma with drowning as a contributing factor when he crashed his personal plane into the Gulf of Mexico near New Port Richey on November 7.

It notes that morphine can sometimes appear in the system as a result of heroin use, according to TMZ sports. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the case.

Halladay was a two-time victor of the Cy Young Award given to the best pitchers in the league during his 16-year MLB career. He pitched in the major leagues for 16 years, and retired following the 2013 season. Halladay threw a ideal game against the Marlins May 29, 2010, and followed it up with a no-hitter against the Reds in Game 1 of the National League division series that October.
