Death Investigation Complete for MLB's Roy Halladay, 40

Baseball Hall of Famer Roy Halladay passed away in 2017 at the age of 40 when the plane he was flying crashed in the Gulf of Mexico.

Now, a report from the National Transportation Safety Board has been revealed, and says he was doing stunts and had multiple drugs in his system at the time of the crash.

His official cause of death has been revealed to be blunt trauma and drowning after the two-seater plane made impact.

“Multiple witnesses in the area stated that they saw the airplane flying very low, between five and 300 ft., over the water as the airplane maneuvered south close to the shoreline,” the report added about the stunts. “Some witnesses reported that the airplane was making steep turns and high-pitch climbs up to about 500 ft. and that the engine sounded normal.”

The drugs in his system included sleep aid, an antidepressant, a muscle relaxer, two opioids, ibuprofen and higher-than-normal amphetamine levels.
