Autopsy Report

Dear Dr. G.,

I'm hoping that you will be able to help me with
an answer to the report that was reported to my
husband about his 22yr old grandson who took his
life by using a 22 rifle and shooting himself in
the juglar vein. His mother was told he virtually
bled to death. He had used anabolic steriods a lot
to help him bulk up and for a while he was off of
them and then he went back to using them again.
We have some pictures of him when he was on them
and he looks abnormal he is so bulked up. Then he
was off of them for awhile because a picture taken
of him on Thanksgiving Day in 2007 he looked back
to normal. He did drink a lot of beer but I don't
know if he was ever into using anykind of drugs.

His mother told her Dad the autopsy showed he died
Schizophrenia and I have never heard of anything
like that showing on an autopsy. He took his life
on Mar. 17th 2008 and it has been haunting both of
us about cause of death. Earlier in the day he had
been acting very different then anyone had ever
seen him. He was showing erratic behavior by telling his Mom that the law was coming to get him
and they wouldn't be able to take him alive. She
tried to get him to go to the ER and he refused and later in the day his 16 yr old sister saw him
and she said she had never seen him look like he
did his eyes were very dilated and he wasn't
making sense of anything he was saying, made her
boyfriend promise he would take care of his sister.Then he broke into the house they used to
live in baraced the doors and had rifles placed at
all the windows with the owners guns. Someone that knew the home owner was out of town called his Mom and when she got there all the lights in
the house were on and she got a ladder and crawled
in the window but when she got into the house she
couldn't bring herself to open the bedroom door so
she called the law and they came and went in and
found his body on the floor.

Needless to say this was very traumatic on every-
one involved and my husband still has nightmares
about him as pictures taken of him at the funeral
show he was back on the steriods. Even tho he was
my step grandson he ment a lot to me as I had known him since he was 3 yrs old and he hadn't
really been in trouble that we knew of but 1 time
when he was stopped and given a DWI and he thought
he was going to jail because he hadn't been going
to his probation visits. His Mom said the report
didn't show any alcohol or any kind of steroids or
drugs legal or otherwise.

Any light you can shed on this subject will be
greatly appreciated. We watch your show all the
time and have learned a lot from your knowledge
of forencis.

Thanks, Mary Johnson
