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

Halladays body was found in about six feet of water.

Additionally, Halladay also had the sedative zolpidem - commonly sold under the brand name Ambien - in his body at the time of the crash, TMZ reports, citing a report released by the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office.

The private plane, which belonged to Roy Halladay had just been removed from the shallow waters off Ben Pilot Point in New Port Richey where it crashed Tuesday, killing the 40-year-old former Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies pitcher.

His blood-alcohol level at the time of the crash was 0.01, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The game was a breeze for PSG and they got off to a rampant start as Angel Di Maria opened the scoring with five minutes. Neymar doubled his tally 12 minutes into the second half, beating Reynet from close range.

Halladay was piloting his own private plane when it plunged into the Mexican Gulf previous year. But he was the only person on board at the time of the crash.

There were reports right before the crash that he was flying the plane erratically before he crashed. Video from around the time of the incident shows the plane flying a couple hundred feet in the air before dropping toward the water. He went on to pitch a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in the 2010 divisional series. It was the first no-hitter in the playoffs since the Yankees' Don Larsen threw a flawless game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.

Halladay, known as "Doc", pitched four seasons with the Phillies before retiring after injuries cut short his 2013 season.

Halladay spent the first 12 years of his Major League Baseball career with the Toronto Blue Jays, winning the AL Cy Young Award in 2003.
