Casey Calvert Autopsy Results

Posted by - 10:52 AM on 12/17/07
Update: Eron from Hawthorne Heights has sent in a statement about the autopsy.

Casey Calvert died of accidental substance abuse.
ExcerptHawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert died due to the "acute combined effects of opiate, citalopram and clonazepam intoxication," according to the just-released results of an autopsy performed by the office of the chief medical examiner in Washington, D.C. The autopsy listed Calvert's death as accidental, though it added that it was brought on due to "substance abuse." Both citalopram (also known by the brand name Celexa) and clonazepam (also known by the brand names Klonopin and Rivotril) are prescription drugs, the former an antidepressant and the latter used to treat seizure disorders and panic attacks.

so what does this mean in layman's terms? antidepressants would make sense, but was he suffering from seizures/panic disorder as well.

this is still not enough to make a conclusive, this is how/why he died statement, IMO

I believe they said it wasn't on purpose, like he didn't OD on heroin or anything.

Interesting... big words. Was it because of the combination of the drugs, or because he took too much?

if these were all medications he was prescribed to be taking, then they didn't say anything misleading. maybe he'd been having an anxiety attack and took extra pills or didn't realize he'd already taken his medication that day and took an extra dose by mistake. the autopsy does believe it's accidental. it 's not really fair or worth it to read too much into it yet.
