I can think of 4 Angels in the last 10 years... which is really crazy on it's own... but have there even been 4 other players pass away in that span?

We also lost Rory Markus several years ago and the PA announcer , whose name escapes me.

I was going to post something earlier about hoping it was some odd medical thing versus drugs or something... but i didnt want to speculate.... i pray this is not true so much

That was number 2 of the 2 possibilities....

But lets wait and see what the offical release says first 

there isn't a 3?  like a freak accident?  slipping on a wet floor and falling through a glass shower door or something?

If it was a drug overdose how could they say it wasn’t a suicide before an autopsy? An autopsy is the only thing that can say whether it was accidental or intentional. 

Either way this is sickening. Prayers to his wife and parents. I can’t imagine losing a child now that I’m a daddy.

Obviously we still don’t know the facts, but just the way that article is written suggests massive speculation rather than actual research or journalism.

This is so awful for every one of his team mates & coaches. They just traveled yesterday, and now he's gone. Many of them just going about their day already at the ballpark not knowing what had happened at the hotel. I was thinking how Mike Trout must be wondering "what the hell is going on?" Last August, his brother in law, and now one of his best friends? Horrible news.

Yes. Absolutely. And didnt mean to suggest otherwise (though I guess I did). Its just that in my experience, the two most common...

And if that were the case, there would be an autopsy.

Until you could prove someone wasnt pushed through the glass, you wouldnt say "no foul play".

An autopsy wont show that. The autopsy will just show cause of death, not whether an OD (in that situation, we dont know anything yet) was intentional or not.

Would that be a toxicology test?

Let's go with the areas of expertise on this board.

Cop stuff - recon

Selfies - Chuck

Bad french fries - strad

Calpers scam - me

Rubbing one out - tdawg

A hatred, and love, of all things white people - Lou

This, and more humor, is needed at a time like this.

No. Its all related. But the tests (all included in an autopsy) only show what made your heart stop beating. Almost like a diagnostic. 

If a person intentionally caused their death by taking drugs, the only way you would know would be because they told someone before hand, or something that really stuck out. Like taking an entire bottle of meds. 

An accidental overdose looks the same as an intentional one in an autopsy.

Not to get too brutal, but accidentally shooting yourself cleaning a gun looks like a suicide gunshot. Jumping off a tall building and falling off one look the same, etc.

An autopsy more or less will show drugs in the system. Poison. A previously unknown disease, etc
