Details of Roy Halladay's autopsy results released

Report: Autopsy Shows Roy Halladay Had Morphine In System At Time Of Death

However, the Tampa Times also reports the autopsy showed signs of some powerful medications in Halladay's system at the time of his death.

The autopsy for ex-MLB star Roy Halladay, who died in a November airplane crash, revealed that he had morphine, amphetamines and zolpidem in his system, according to a report from TMZ Sports.

The report also revealed Halladay had a blood-alcohol content of.01, with evidence of morphine, amphetamine and a common sleeping pill in his system.

Halladay's body was found in about six feet of water.

The two-time Cy Young Award victor was flying his personal plane - an ICON A5, which is an amphibious two-seat plane with foldable wings - when it crashed into the Gulf of Mexico near New Port Richey, the Times reported. He died of blunt-force trauma, and his body was found in 6 feet of water.

He went on to have a historic career as an MLB pitcher, winning the prestigious Cy Young Award for both the American and National Leagues. He also tossed the second postseason no-hitter in Major League Baseball history in October 2010 against the Cincinnati Reds.

Halladay was piloting his own private plane when it plunged into the Mexican Gulf past year. It was the first no-hitter in the playoffs since the Yankees' Don Larsen threw a flawless game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.

The pitcher played for 16 seasons - the first 12 with the Toronto Blue Jays - before retiring in 2013 with the Philadelphia Phillies.
