Also, and someone may have mentioned this already. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he had RC benzos in his system too. I really doubt this was the sole drug responsible for his death.
The 3rd to the last time we spoke by phone (iirc with our calls) he got a buzz on his door. He rose up, excitedly, from his gaming chair and sprinted to his door. He had a package and was exceedingly giddy about having received it.
I asked him about it and, being a user, he said he needed to use, and get back to me. I stayed on the phone, while he chatted giddily and navigated his way through a variety of notations from others re: dosing, proper taste (it passed the test) and how soon and long he could expect to feel the effects of the drug.
Then he got back to me. His voice and speed with which he talked were off mere minutes later. Any of you that spoke with him know that he was a rather a hyper speaker that had new ideas flooding his head sure as waves hit the sand. He could even be a tad rude on discord, interrupting a conversation to bring the topic back to that which was of interest to him.
I asked him about the drug he got. I can’t remember the name at all. But it was an RC benzo. This was not one he’d used before, rather it was one he’d heard about from users that were fans of this drug. He wanted to re-dose about 10 minutes later and I told him to chill as it was likely that it hasn’t reached its full potential yet. He re-dosed regardless, and of course I have zero knowledge of any RCs.
I feel badly that I didn’t bother to write down the name of that RC benzo or google it right then. I would not be surprised if he had benzos in his system when he OD’d. He reported (on our next conversation) being quite a satisfied customer with those he’d received.
