Texas linebacker Jake Ehlinger, younger brotherIndianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger, died by an accidental overdose of what was believed to be Xanax laced with fentanyl. The family said in a statement: "Today we are sad to share that we have learned that Jake was a victim of an accidental overdose of what was believed to be Xanax laced with toxic drugs including deadly Fentany.
The spread of counterfeit pills is an ongoing and significant issue throughout our country, particularly in schools, colleges, and universities. As our family continues to process Jake's death, we felt it was important to share these details with the hope that Jake will not have died in vain.
We pray that sharing Jake's story will help shed light on this problem and prevent other families from also tragically losing a loved one. Words cannot express the depth of our sadness and the huge void we are feeling, but above all else, our hearts pour out to Sam, Jena, Morgen and the entire Ehlinger family.
Jake was a tremendous person and was everything you could ask for in a student-athlete. Being a Longhorn meant everything to him, and he truly embodied all that it means to be one."
