Drug supplier for Tyler Skaggs testifies; prosecution to call former Angels pitcher Matt Harvey to the stand in Eric Kay trial on Tuesday

Feb 14, 2022

Perhaps the most important takeaway from the sixth day of former Angels employee Eric Kay’s trial in connection to the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs came after the jury had marched out the door. That’s when prosecuting attorney Lindsey Beran revealed that former All-Star pitcher Matt Harvey will testify Tuesday morning.

Defense attorneys have identified Harvey as the supplier of Percocet pills that were in Skaggs’ possession when he was found dead July 1, 2019 in a Southlake, Texas, hotel room from what medical examiners deemed “alcohol, fentanyl and oxycodone intoxication with a terminal aspiration of gastric contents.”
