Painkillers, somas killed ex-wrestler

An autopsy showed former pro wrestler Brian "Crush" Adams died after ingesting a mixture of prescribed medications.

Toxicology tests on Adams revealed a combination of buprenorphine (an an opiate-based painkiller), carisorpdol (somas), chlordiazepoxide and alprazolam (an anti-anxiety medication).

Dr. Leszek Chrostowki of the Hillsborough County Medical Examiners Office ruled the death to be an accidental overdose of the combined effects if the four medications. Adams had no steroids in his system at the time of his death.

The 44-year-old Tampa resident died August 13.
