Ray Lewis III, the son of Baltimore Ravens legend Ray Lewis, passed away just 10 days after celebrating his 28th birthday from an accidental overdose.
Police say they responded to a call for a medical emergency and found Ray III unresponsive.
A friend was administering CPR while another friend was screaming for Narcan.
Ray Lewis III was found naked in a room, between a bed and a wall and he was not breathing.
Police administered Narcan in Ray’s right nostril, but there was no response.
The report also says cops searched the room and found a blue pill near Lewis’ body, which they unofficially identified as Alprazolam (the drug in brands like Xanax). Police also say there was a used needle at the scene, plus a small plastic bag found inside an empty beer can.
His death is considered an accidental overdose until a medical examiner determines the actual cause of death.
Ray’s young brother, Rahsaan Lewis, took to social media on Thursday to pay tribute to his big brother with an emotional post via his Instagram Story.
Rahsaan posted a photo of Ray along with the caption:
