Roy Halladay died from blunt force trauma, had drugs in system

The autopsy report notes that morphine can be found in the system as a result of heroin use - however sources tell us there is no indication Halladay had been using heroin or any other "clandestine drug".

The autopsy for ex-MLB star Roy Halladay, who died in a November airplane crash, revealed that he had morphine, amphetamines and zolpidem in his system, according to a report from TMZ Sports.

The autopsy also showed Halladay had amphetamine and a drug used to treat insomnia in his system at the time of the crash in November.

Halladay was killed in Holiday in November of previous year.

Before jumping to conclusions, recall that Halladay was a professional athlete who dealt with injuries - a debilitating back problem in particular - and it's entirely possible that the substances named above were prescribed and perhaps not sufficient to impair him. The NTSB investigation into Halladay's death did not identify the cause of the crash. Halladay's blood tested positive for 72 ng/ml. It was the first no-hitter in the playoffs since the Yankees' Don Larsen threw a flawless game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.

He retired after the 2013 season with 203 career wins and a 3.38 ERA.

The 8-time MLB All-Star was a pitcher for the Phillies and the Blue Jays and a two-time Cy Young Award victor during his 16-year career.
