An autopsy of Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs has revealed that drugs and alcohol were in his system when he was found dead.
It’s been almost two months since Anaheim Angels Pitcher Tyler Skaggs was found dead in his hotel room days before his birthday.
An autopsy was performed on Skaggs which revealed that he had opioids and alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
The toxicology report released Friday by the Tarrant County medical examiner says the cause of death was a mixture of “alcohol, fentanyl and oxycodone intoxication” resulting in Skaggs choking on his vomit while under the influence.
While his death is still under investigation, his family believes there’s more to the story.
They believe that there is an Angels employee who may have been involved in supplying drugs to the 27-year-old pro.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the family won’t rest until they learn the truth about who supplied the drugs.
Skaggs began his professional baseball career with the Angels being drafted in 2009. He was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks and then reacquired by the Angels for the 2014 season sadly until his death.
