According to Dan Morgan, the supervisory forensic investigator for Harris County, former WWE superstar Umaga (Eddie Fatu) died of acute toxicity.
“The cause of death is acute toxicity due to combined effects of hydrocodone, carisoprodol, and diazepam," Harris told author Irvin Muchnick.
Muchnick offered the following description of the drugs: "Hydrocone is a painkiller. Carisoprodol, commonly called soma, is a muscle relaxer. Diazepam, commonly called Valium, is an anti-anxiety medication."
Coke wouldn't have surprised me, but this cocktail of prescription drugs surprises me even less with how common it is these day's to hear about people using (and often abusing) prescription drugs moreso than traditional illegal drugs.
agreed. seems like everytime i hear of drug related deaths, an increasing amount of those deaths are of the cocktail of prescribed drugs. makes you wonder what the doctors are thinking, when they prescribe so many drugs.
