Maryland's state attorney for Prince George's County has issued 61 subpoenas and prepared another 10 in the investigation of the cocaine death of University of Maryland basketball star Len Bias, it was announced Monday in Upper Marlboro, Md.
State's Attorney Arthur Marshall said that the witnesses being called range from the state medical examiner to roommates and friends of the All-American.
"We are calling people we think have specific information about the death," Marshall said. "I think, as time goes on, we will find ourselves talking to more and more people and more subpoenas will be issued."
Marshall said a subpoena was issued for Maryland basketball Coach Lefty Driesell, but it was being withheld until investigators can talk to the coach about a meeting he held with players the morning Bias died.
