Fans Call Out Doctors & Drug Companies After Chris Cornell's Wife Says Suicide May Have Been Caused By Prescription Ativan

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadHealthViral: News

no title

Chris Cornell's suicide is just so hard to understand. And to his widow Vicky it's "inexplicable."

In a statement early on Friday, she specifically mentioned her husband telling her he had taken "an extra Ativan or two" and that he was "slurring his words."

The Cornells' attorney Kirk Pasich concurred, saying the family was "disturbed at inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life."

The family is apparently looking to blame the prescription medication and are hoping the full autopsy results support their case that Chris' suicide was not his own idea.

It may sound bizarre for a drug used to treat anxiety, but one of the listed side effects of Ativan, the brand name of lorazepam, is suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.

Many on Twitter following the story were quick to support Vicky's position, including fans, doctors, and recovering addicts:

Mantenuto was one of a number of young, first-time film actors to star in the 2004 retelling of the U.S. Hockey Team's 1980 "Miracle on Ice" game against a much stronger Russian team, playing real-life Olympic star Jack O'Callahan. He was only 22 at the time.

He went on to act in a movie called Dirtbags and Matthew McConaughey's Surfer, Dude before leaving acting to join the army, ending up in the esteemed Special Forces.

Such a tragic, shocking end to his story.

Aaron Hernandez's Body Tests Positive For Synthetic Marijuana K2 — But That's Not The Only Thing Investigators Found!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersViolence

no title

The case of Aaron Hernandez's suicide just keeps getting more complicated.

Shortly after his death on April 19, several inmates told authorities the former New England Patriot might have been high on synthetic marijuana.

According to law enforcement sources speaking to Newsweek, the autopsy did indeed show traces of K2.

Subsequently, State Police did a thorough search of the entire Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center on Monday, looking the liquid marijuana, which can be smuggled into prison soaked into scraps of paper or letters.

Department of Corrections sources point out how unusual it is for State Troopers to come in and perform a search inside a prison; Internal Affairs were even involved, leading many to believe a bigger investigation into Hernandez's death and the prison itself is going on.

One thing investigators already found that wasn't on the up-and-up? It seems a corrections officer missed a round of surveillance at 2 a.m. — and Hernandez was found dead at 3:03 a.m. That officer has since been "detached with pay." Hmmm…

The prison is reportedly on lockdown as the investigation continues.
