Garrett Reid, son of Eagles' Andy Reid, died of heroin overdose

"The autopsy and toxicology is consistent with that conclusion," Morganelli added, "and it is consistent with the evidence of the syringe and other drug paraphenalia that we determined was consistent with heroin use."

County coroner Zachary Lysek said the autopsy found Reid had "acute opiate toxicity" and that his death was accidental.

Reid was found dead in his dorm room early on Aug. 5 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., where he was assisting the Eagles' strength and conditioning coach during training camp. He was a recovering drug addict who seemingly had turned around his life. His father, Andy Reid, had indicated his 29-year-old son might have had a relapse.

In a statement released through the Eagles, the Reid family said Garrett Reid's smile, laugh and energy will be missed.

Re: Garrett Reid, son of Eagles' Andy Reid, died of heroin overdose

When it comes to drugs like heroin, crystal meth, crack cocaine, etc., you wonder how high the body count's gotta get before people wise up. I honestly don't understand why anyone experiments with drugs this powerful - and dangerous - anymore.

Sad news that.
I witness a very close family member on the stuff and then crack.As hard as it is the only thing you can do is turn your back on them till they hit rock bottom.

Happily he is clean now but not before loosing half family from being part of his life.
