No Drugs in Teen Pilot's System, Officials Say

January 17, 2002|Times Wire Services

The 15-year-old student pilot who crashed a stolen light plane into an office building this month had no alcohol or drugs in his system when he died, medical examiners said in Tampa.

Neither was there any sign the teen, Charles Bishop, had taken Accutane, an acne medication that carried a label warning it might cause depression and suicide, the medical examiners said.

Bishop died Jan. 5 when he flew the plane into the 28th floor of the 42-story Bank of America building.

Police found a suicide note voicing support for Osama bin Laden and the Sept. 11 attacks.
