CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A toxicology report shows a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill had a blood alcohol content of .22 percent when he fell to his death from a tower at a plant.
The Charlotte Observer reported (http://bit.ly/1crhPQt) that the toxicology report released Monday showed 18-year-old David Shannon of Charlotte had a blood alcohol content that was nearly three times the legal limit to drive. The autopsy results released Monday by the North Carolina Medical Examiner's Office showed he died of trauma to the head, neck and body.
Friends who followed a GPS signal from his cellphone found his body Oct. 27, 2012, at a Carrboro concrete plant.
Police have not ruled out the possibility that hazing was involved in Shannon's death. He was a fraternity pledge.
Authorities are expected to release the results of autopsies on the two bodies recovered from the fiery crash that killed "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker and his friend.
"Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was killed by injuries from both the impact and subsequent fire when the Porsche his friend was driving smashed into a light pole and tree, according to an autopsy released Wednesday.
