RIP MARY FRIAS SANCHEZ (February 21, 1946 – January 16, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Monday at 4:28 a.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on August 18, presumably after the results of tox screening came back positive for the drugs.

Metoprolol is used to treat high blood pressure.
