The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has interviewed several former and current Los Angeles Angels players as part of their investigation into the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs.
Via Los Angeles Times:
"Federal agents have interviewed at least six current and former Angels players as part of their investigation into the drug-related death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs, according to a person with knowledge of the interviews who is not authorized to speak publicly about them.
A representative for pitcher Trevor Cahill confirmed that his client was questioned by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents in Texas in September.
Pitchers Andrew Heaney, Noe Ramirez and Matt Harvey - who was released by the team July 21 - also were questioned, according to the person familiar with the investigation. The names of the other two players questioned are not known."
It should also be noted that the article stated "players weren't targeted for any specific reason or suspected of using opiates or implicated in any potential crime."
The 27-year-old Skaggs was tragically found deceased in his hotel room on July 1st just hours before the Angels were set to face the Rangers.
A toxicology report would later reveal that Skaggs had Fentanyl, oxycodone and alcohol in his system when he was found dead. While under the influence of the three substances, Skaggs choked on his vomit and died.
The Tarrant County medical examiner's office listed his cause of death as a mixture of "alcohol, fentanyl and oxycodone intoxication with terminal aspiration of gastric contents."
