November 1, 2016 — Shawn Lucas’ cause of death released

According to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner of Washington D.C., this is the cause and manner of Shawn Lucas’ death. The office released the information to Heavy on November 1:

Cause: Combined adverse effects of fentanyl, cyclobenzaprine, and mitragynine
Manner: Accident

“However, Lucas’ death has now been labeled an accident as a result of a combination of drugs, including kratom.”

That sentence with “kratom” means that the authorities want you to think he was irresponsible and so he died and it’s his fault. Kratom is a twilight language for “stupid user” when in fact its fentanyl.

No one who has studied this case thinks that Shawn Lucas took those drugs himself.
