RIP ERIC FRANKLIN (April 15, 1999 – October 24, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Tuesday at 1:03 p.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on February 2, presumably after the results of tox screening came back positive from the lab. This is considered an accidental drug overdose.

Sertraline, sold under the brand name Zoloft among others, is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class.

Propranolol, sold under the brand name Inderal among others, is a medication of the beta blocker class. It is used to treat high blood pressure, a number of types of irregular heart rate, thyrotoxicosis, capillary hemangiomas, performance anxiety, and essential tremors, as well to prevent migraine headaches, and to prevent further heart problems in those with angina or previous heart attacks.
