How did Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson die?
Jaylon Ferguson, a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, passed away at age 26. On Wednesday, June 22, in the early hours, the Baltimore Ravens made the announcement of his passing. The Ravens made no additional statements regarding Ferguson’s passing. Ferguson was discovered in a North Baltimore residence after police were alerted around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21 night, according to Tim Prudente of the Baltimore Banner. When police officers entered a Baltimore residence, the 26-year-old was unconscious and receiving medical attention.
Since there were no indications of misdeeds or injuries to his corpse, a police spokeswoman deemed the death “questionable.” The case has been forwarded to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy because the cause of the death is still unknown and under investigation. Baltimore Police spokesman Lindsey Eldridge said, “I can say that we are not ruling anything out.” “We don’t decide the cause of death, but we take an overdose’s likelihood into account.”
According to a law enforcement source who asked to remain anonymous because the autopsy results have not been made public and were quoted by The Baltimore Banner, the friend who discovered Ferguson unresponsive told the police that the previous night Ferguson had told him that he was “xanied up,” referring to the prescription drug Xanax. Alprazolam, a medication used to treat anxiety and panic disorders, is sold under the trade name Xanax.
The source claimed that Ferguson had been going through a terrible time with the recent passing of his grandmother and a fire at his Owings Mills home. The acquaintance claimed that Ferguson was depressed.
