With the shocking and untimely death of Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins hanging in the rearview mirror for many fans, the Colombian authorities have begun an in-depth investigation to rule out foul play, suicide or overdose.
According to reports by the Attorney General’s Office in Colombia, the preliminary results of the urine toxicology test have been revealed and they have been shared in a press release.
According to a Twitter update, “the presence of 10 different substances: THC (Marijuana), tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opioids, among others” have been found within Hawkins’ system.
In light of this, The National Institute of Forensic Medicine “continues to conduct the necessary medical studies to ascertain the cause of death.”
This press release comes shortly after the District Health Secretary revealed that a local emergency centre received news of a patient struggling with chest pains on Friday night.
Health professionals who attended to the singer attempted numerous resuscitative manoeuvres but he was later declared dead at the scene.
Following that, The District Health Secretary released a statement announcing “the death of this talented musician and drummer, widely recognized internationally for his work.”
“In addition, condolences are sent to his family, companions and followers,” the statement concluded by adding.
