Eron Gives Statement About Casey's Autopsy...

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (12/17/07)
Eron Bucciarelli from Hawthorne Heights has sent us a message about Casey Calvert's autopsy. Read it below.
Eron SpeaksFrom the time of the incident we suspected a possible drug interaction as the cause. Casey wrestled with depression for as long as we knew him. He saw numerous doctors and took an ever-changing array of medicines to get better. He finally had his depression under control. According to the toxicology report, the cause of death was due to a fatal interaction between depression meds, anxiety meds and an opiate. Opiates being mentioned along with the term "substance abuse", coupled with "rockstar" stereotypes immediately conjure up images of hard drug use and addiction, which simply couldn't be further from the truth in Casey's instance. What the toxicology report doesn't show is that prior to us leaving for tour, Casey had a root canal, and was prescribed Vicodin (an opiate) for the pain. Once again, Casey was not involved in anything illegal nor was he a substance abuser. Please be respectful as we search for more answers to these newly raised questions and deal with this news.

Thank you,
Eron

Eron ClarifiesSorry for the change of statements. I sent the first one prematurely and tried stopping it before it was posted. I wasn't fast enough. This new one is based on fact whereas the first was just further speculation. Thanks for understanding.
Eron

Excellent job on the band's part for getting a statement out this fast before people got too crazy suspecting things.

RIP, Casey.

its sad that they have to keep defending him while they're still in mourning.
i understand that the public is curious but people shouldn't make false accusations.

You always have to be careful when dealing with these type of things. All of these seemed to be prescribed and completely legal, and still this happens. its a pretty scary thought.

I hate the fact that they feel like they need to say "Please be respectful as we deal with this news." this shouldn't have to be something thats written next to that statement. This is truly sad news and I wish the best of luck to this band.

I think it's only natural that if a rockstar dies of a lethal mix of drugs then THAT is going to enter peoples minds.

It's not a slur on this kid it's just human nature because of the stereotypical lifestyle.

Regardless, it is truly tragic.. I didn't care for their music, but anyone who utters statements like "why should I care I didn't like them?" is a joke of a human being. May he rest in peace.
