Jose Fernandez estate’s lawyer says the late Miami Marlins’ pitcher was drugged before death.
The two men’s families that died alongside Fernandez, Eduardo Rivero & Emilio Macias, filed a civil lawsuit against Fernandez’s estate, seeking $2 million in damages.
Ralph Fernandez, the lawyer representing the Fernandez estate (no relation) is saying that the pitcher was drugged as well as framed before the crash that killed the men.
According to Complex, Ralph claims that Jose had a backpack with $15,000 in it and was a target for men that wanted to steal it. He also states that Jose and Rivero were the victims of a “mickey of sorts” or a spiked drink to make them disoriented.
At the time of the crash, Jose’s blood-alcohol level was .147 and also had cocaine in his system.
