Report: Autopsy Shows Roy Halladay Had Morphine In System At Time Of Death

The 40-year-old Halladay died on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, when his plane crashed off the coast of Tampa, Fla.

The official cause of Halladay's death was blunt force trauma, with drowning a contributing factor.

The plane's chief test pilot died in a crash involving the same model last May, according to CNN.

A preliminary report released two weeks after the crash by the National Transportation Safety Board said Halladay was flying his ICON A5 plane at 105 miles per hour while skimming the Gulf of Mexico at just 11 feet before climbing 100 feet in the air.

Halladay's body was found in about six feet of water. The retired ballplayer had trace amounts of morphine and amphetamine along with an intoxicating level of the sedative zolpidem, commonly known as Ambien, in his bloodstream according to an autopsy report obtained by TMZ.

Even so, Abbas reaffirmed his commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Trump stressed his recognition wasn't taking a position on the city's boundaries.

Nicotine and alcohol were also discovered in Halladay's blood, the autopsy found.

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. He's one of two players in Major League Baseball history to pitch a no-hitter in a playoff game. He finished his career with the Philadelphia Phillies, where he threw a no-hitter in the playoffs, as well as a regular-season ideal game.

Halladay was killed in Holiday in November of a year ago.

Halladay pitched for Syracuse for parts of four seasons, in 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2001.
