An autopsy released on Saturday shows that late Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol when he died in a fatal boat crash last month, reports ABC 10

An autopsy of one of the other young men, Eduardo Rivero, on the boat also revealed that he was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol. The third young man, Emilio Macias, had alcohol in his system, but no cocaine. 

The full toxicology report tested for many different substances. 

The report also shows that the men suffered blunt force injuries to their heads and torsos. Macias also suffered blunt force injuries of the extremities. 

The three men were at a restaurant called the American Social Bar & Kitchen in the Brickell area before riding in the pitcher's SeaVee when it rammed into a jetty off the coast of Miami Beach. 

Many on Twitter argue these facts shouldn't tarnish Fernandez's memory.
