Fentanyl 'likely' killed Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs, former Tarrant County medical examiner testifies at trial

Feb 11, 2022

A former medical examiner said it’s likely but not certain that a dangerous opioid caused the death of MLB pitcher Tyler Skaggs. The team’s communications director, Eric Kay, is now on trial for allegedly causing Skaggs’ death by giving him oxycodone pills laced with a fatal dose of fentanyl.

Dr. Marc Krause, the former deputy medical examiner in Tarrant County, ruled it was an accidental death and told the jury there was no evidence someone intended for Skaggs to die.
