              10...9...8...7...6..5..4..3..2..1......"S" word!!! I'm sure they will find some different prescribed meds in his system that ultimately lead to his death, but you can bet on the media talking about steroids being the "Main" drug. Maybe the Hooten family will join in and say that steroids caused this guy to become depressed and overdose on meds.

                Really too bad, but the Pain killers mentioned is on of the key drugs introduced in the 90's that causes these deaths, as well as those in hollywood. Pain killers, muscle relaxers, anti depressants/anxiety...those are the death combo.
