Scientology President's Son Died of Prescribed Methadone While Sick With Pneumonia - 2012-09-11
Karen de la Carriere with Alexander Jentzsch at his wedding to Andrea Evans I talked earlier today to Ed Winter, assistant chief coroner of Los Angeles County, who tells me that he's ruling Alexander Jentzsch's death an accident.
The 27-year-old son of Scientology president Heber Jentzsch was found dead on the morning of July 3 at the home of his in-laws. Winter has now determined that Alexander was suffering from pneumonia while he was on a prescription of methadone. His injury was "drug intake," Winter says, and "final mode" of death an accident.
"What you're telling me sounds like an accidental drug overdose while he was very sick," I said to Winter.
