According to multiple reports, Junior Seau had no drugs or alcohol discovered in his system during his autopsy.
Reuters reports the toxicology report found therapeutic levels of a sleep aid were found in his system, but no substances of abuse such as drugs or alcohol. The sleeping medicine that was present in Seau is known as Zolpidem.
Seau had trouble sleeping for many years, according to friends that knew him. At times, they say he didn't always take the sleeping medication as prescribed, according to SI.com.
Workout partner Nancy Emsley told Seau he needed to sleep for eight hours after taking a sleeping aid. Unfortunately she says, "he just rolled his eyes."
Seau is the third ex-NFL player to take his own life since 2011, along with ex-safeties Ray Easterling and Dave Duerson.
