Andrew Martin

  1. Do you think Andrew Martins (test) death was partly due too him being so tall since he was between 6ft4 too 6'5.
  2. Probably not related to his height.
    Martin was found dead in his Tampa, Florida home on March 13, 2009.[3][14] Police were called in after a concerned neighbor reported Martin appearing motionless for several hours through a window outside of his condominium. Police retrieved the body after scaling the apartment balcony. He is believed to have died the previous day.[20][21] His death was ruled an accidental overdose of oxycodone.[22] It was later determined by forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu that Martin had severe chronic traumatic encephalopathy, an Alzheimer's-like form of brain damage that fellow pro wrestler Chris Benoit was found to be suffering from shortly before his death in 2007, caused by repeated concussions and subconcussive head injuries. He was cremated & his cremated remains were flown to his family at his hometown of Whitby, Ontario, Canada at an unknown location.[23]
  3. True but they do say that being over 6ft4 greatly reduces your life expectancy
  4. That may be true, but that's just like saying you will die if you text and drive. Also, how can you "accidentally" overdose on Oxycodone? I took 9 of them after I had a surgery, and only felt really good, but I was still browsing the web...
  5. I never knew that.

    @[Xanth] you're 6 ft 3? Good luck :(
  6. He apparently had concussion issues which lead to an Alzheimer's like state so it's possible he didn't have control of how many he took.
  7. :(
