Steroids were found in the room of Garrett Reid the day he died of a fatal heroin dose at Philadelphia Eagles training camp this summer, a Pennsylvania prosecutor said Monday.
Reid, the son of Eagles Coach Andy Reid, was helping the team’s strength and conditioning coach at the time of his death, prompting speculation that the anabolic steroids could have been meant for players.
Northampton County Dist. Atty. John Morganelli said there was no evidence that Reid was providing players with the steroids and that investigators could not determine if the drugs were for Reid’s personal use or distribution, according to the Associated Press.
The body of Reid, 29, was found in his dorm room at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, where the Eagles stage training camp. Investigators searching the room found a used syringe and spoon, as well as a gym bag filled with syringes and needles, and 19 bottles of a liquid later found to be anabolic steroids.
