Halladay Had Morphine in System When His Plane Crashed

Halladay Had Morphine in System When His Plane Crashed”

TMZ had previously reported that Halladay was flying in an erratic pattern prior to the crash, though the autopsy showed that blunt trauma and drowning were the causes of death.

The two-time Cy Young Award victor was flying his personal plane - an ICON A5, which is an amphibious two-seat plane with foldable wings - when it crashed into the Gulf of Mexico near New Port Richey, the Times reported.

An autopsy on the major leaguer who died in a plane crash last November has revealed Roy Halladay died with a mix of morphine and sleeping pills in his system.

Zolpidem, the generic name for Ambien, and amphetamines were also found in Halladay's system.

Federal investigators revealed that his plane made several steep turns before crashing into the water.

In 2003, Halladay won a club-record 22 games en route to his first Cy Young Award and was the backbone of the franchise through the first decade of the 2000s as the Blue Jays unsuccessfully tried to catch the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox in the American League East.

Citing sources, TMZ wrote that while the "autopsy report notes that morphine can be found in the system as a result of heroin use", there was "no indication Halladay had been using heroin or any other 'clandestine drug'". He finished his career with the Philadelphia Phillies, where he threw a no-hitter in the playoffs, as well as a regular-season flawless game.

Halladay was piloting his own private plane when it plunged into the Mexican Gulf past year.
