The family of Garrett Reid says the results of his Aug. 5 death by an accidental overdose of heroin have confirmed what they expected.
In a statement released Thursday after officials announced the cause, the family, in a statement released by the Eagles, reiterated they knew their son's "battle with addiction" was going to be hard.
The family said, "He will, however, always have our family's love and respect for the courage he showed in trying to overcome it."
Garret was a recovering drug addict who had seemingly turned his life around. His father, Eagles coach Andy Reid, had indicated that his 29-year-old son may have had a relapse.
