Autopsy reveals Justice was 'super drunk' at time of death

A mixture of alcohol and drugs was found in Jonathon Justice, who died in February in Deerfield Village Apartments.

An autopsy showed Justice's blood alcohol level was 0.349. A mixture of amphetamines, or central nervous system stimulants, and benzodiazepine, a psychoactive drug that helps with sleep and anxiety, was also found. 

The 23-year-old Farmington Hills senior was found slumped over a trash can inside his apartment the night of his death, said Lt. Gary Green of the Michigan State Police Department.

Justice's blood alcohol level is considered "super drunk" because it was above 0.17. 

"If you get up to around 0.30, the jails won't even take you," Green said. "They'll want us to take them to the hospital until their levels go down." 

Police ruled his death an accident. Justice was found unresponsive by his roommates and pronounced dead at the scene.
