My brother from another mother, Jason Scott, died at 33 of unknown causes on Tuesday July 15th at his home in Summerlin.
Autopsy results were inconclusive and the coroner's office could need another 12 weeks to determine the cause of death, said Scott's manager, Clinton Billups Jr. - lvrj
Scott returned from a weekend engagement in Boston complaining of stomach problems. - rumormillnews
After Boston he took another trip to Las Vegas and returned from there to his home before he died. He had been drinking and had a fight with his girlfriend that night. Jason had a black belt in Karate and was the kind of person to never back down. In one conflict he had, a neighbor killed his dog. Foul play is not suspected by anyone close to him, however.
Update Oct 12, 2008: Autopsy report: Jason died accidentally from having drunk the equivalent of 6 or 7 beers over the course of 4 to 8 hours while also taking two Oxycontin pain killers. He was taking the drug for pain from an injury sustained in a martial arts class.
The vast majority of OxyContin-related deaths are attributed to ingesting substantial quantities of oxycodone in combination with another depressant of the central nervous system such as alcohol, Ambien, Xanax, and Seroquel.
