Autopsy: Green's son died of drugs, alcohol

BY foxsports • March 24, 2010

The Dallas County medical examiner's office says Hunter Green, the son of professional golfer Ken Green, died as a result of a combination of alcohol and prescription drugs.

An autopsy reported obtained by the Dallas Morning News on Tuesday says Green's January death was accidental. It also says the drugs in Green's system were muscle relaxants and painkillers.

The 21-year-old Southern Methodist University sophomore was found dead in his dorm room on Jan. 22.

His sister, Brooke Baker, says her brother was prescribed the medications after suffering an injury.

It was the second family tragedy in eight months for Ken Green. He had his lower right leg amputated last summer after a recreational vehicle accident in which his brother and girlfriend were killed.
