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

Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roy "Doc" Halladay had morphine in his system during his fatal plane crash in November, an autopsy report revealed. A toxicology report also yielded positive results for amphetamines.

Halladay was the only person in the plane and died in the crash.

Halladay spent the first 12 years of his Major League Baseball career with the Toronto Blue Jays, winning the AL Cy Young Award in 2003.

However, there's no indication that Halladay was using the illicit drug.

However, the Tampa Times also reports the autopsy showed signs of some powerful medications in Halladay's system at the time of his death.

Scathing Trump book 'Fire and Fury' to be adapted for television series
It was up to the White House physician to tell the world that Trump was mentally acute after thoroughly examining him last Friday. President Trump has said that Wolff did not have his permission to pen the book that he had "zero access" to him or the building.

Halladay's blood content of morphine (160 ng/mL), amphetamine (1800 ng/mL), and zolpidem (72 ng/mL) can be considered trace amounts.

It notes that morphine can sometimes appear in the system as a result of heroin use, according to TMZ sports.

The FDA said that more than 50 ng/nl of the drug used to treat insomnia, zolpidem (Ambien), can impair "driving to a degree that increases the risk of a motor vehicle accident". When he retired in 2013, Halladay cited back and shoulder injuries as the season.

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.

Witnesses noticed Halladay's plane flying erratically prior to the crash and federal aviation investigators determined Halladay performed steep turns in his two-seat plane just off the coast near New Port Richey, Fla.
