All-Star pitcher Roy Halladay died with drugs in his system, report says

The 40-year-old Phillies pitcher was alone in his two-seat sports plane when it plunged into the ocean 10 miles off the coast of St. Petersburg, Fla., on November 7.

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

On Friday, the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office released the results of Halladay's autopsy, which found that he died from blunt force trauma with drowning as a contributing factor.
