Traces of Ecstasy in Missing Firefighter's Body
updated: Aug 03, 2014, 10:32 AM

Traces of ecstasy were found in the body of an Arcadia firefighter who went missing in the Los Padres National Forest, reports the LA Times.

Toxicology tests performed on the body of Michael Herdman found traces of ecstasy, "evidence of caffeine, ethanol (which could indicate alcohol use or be a product of decomposition), and amphetamine, used to treat narcolepsy, obesity and hyperactivity disorders." (LA Times)

Herdman was camping with a friend and his dog in the Los Padres National Forest this past June when his dog ran off in the middle of the night. He reportedly went looking for his dog without a coat or shoes. Weeks later his body was found and cause of death was ruled as blunt-force trauma. Ventura County Medical Examiner officials stated it probably occurred after he fell from a cliff less than a mile from the campsite that he disappeared from June 13.
