According to Tom Shortell of The Express-Times,  Garrett Reid, the son of Eagles head coach Andy Reid had steroids was in possession of steroids whiling overdosing and dying from a heroin overdose. Sources familiar with the investigation say Garrett Reid, the son of Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid, was in possession of steroids when he died Aug. 5 during Eagles training camp at Lehigh University. University police discovered 19 vials of unknown substances in a gym bag, along with 47 syringes and 64 needles in the dorm room where Reid died, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said earlier this year. During the initial investigation, police quickly eliminated the vials as a cause of death, but Morganelli said last month he sent five samples for testing as he began tying up the loose ends of the case after formally announcing Oct. 18 that Reid died of a heroin overdose. Authorities have identified the substances in some of the vials as steroids, sources said. One source requested anonymity because that person is not authorized to release the information. Not all of the vials were tested at the same time due to a miscommunication with university police, Morganelli has said. University police Chief Ed Shupp did not return multiple phone calls seeking information over the last month.
