Larry Brown Sports

Roy Halladay’s father was concerned that the Hall of Fame pitcher had been misusing prescription drugs prior to his fatal airplane crash, according to documents from investigators.

NTSB officials spoke to Halladay’s father after the flight, according to TMZ Sports, and were told that Halladay had enrolled himself into an in-house program to battle an addiction to Lorazepam a few years before his death. The officials were told that Halladay’s father was “concerned that Roy was abusing prescription medications, and that may have played a role in the accident.”

Halladay’s father added that the pitcher was suffering from anxiety and depression around the time of the accident.
