Thomas Mallory: Autopsy & Toxicology Report
The Lubbock Medical Examiner released Autopsy and Toxicology reports late Tuesday afternoon in the death investigation of 16-year-old Coronado student, Thomas Mallory. Click here to view the complete report.

The Lubbock medical examiner believes the 16-year-old took ecstasy around 7:30 p.m. that night. It wasn't until 11:38 p.m. that Mallory arrived at UMC's emergency room, unconscious. Doctors pronounced him brain dead several hours later. The medical examiner ruled Mallory's death an accident.

"What did he take, sir?" "Hey what did he...ecstasy is what he was trying to...he took ecstasy. He took ecstasy? I just know he took ecstasy. " That was the 9-1-1 call on June 10th that further proved Mallory took the drug also known as MDMA.

Chief Medical Examiner Sridhar Natarajan says, "These drugs are so dangerous they can cause death just by taking them, they don't have to reach a certain level." According to the medical examiner it only takes one pill of ecstasy to cause a death. "What may be lethal to one person, might not be to another." In Thomas Mallory's case, his toxicology test showed traces of both octals and marijuana.

The report also mentioned Mallory did not get medical attention until four hours after taking the drug. Natarajan said, "By the time Mallory was found he was in a coma and unresponsive and at the time of arrival to the hospital, there was depletion of oxygen to the brain."

The medical examiners are relieved this portion of the investigation is complete, but this is only the beginning of the end. "We have completed our report, now it goes to the DA's office, we also gave a copy to the family and spoke with the family."

The medical examiner told NewsChannel 11 although the autopsy report says the manner of death was an accident, it is up to the justice system to further investigate.
