[2] Matthew Heller, "Death and Denial at Herbalife", The Los Angeles Times, 18 February 2001: "The Los Angeles County coroner's office concludes he died of a toxic combination of alcohol and Doxepin, an antidepressant he was taking to help him sleep. His blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.21, more than 2 1/2 times the legal limit for driving. The death was ruled an accident, an eerie echo of the ruling on the drug-related death of Hughes' mother 25 years earlier."
