Back in August, Marion’s son died from a drug overdose. He was only 36 years old.
NYDN reports, Marion Christopher Barry, the son of the late Washington, D.C., mayor, has died at 36 of a suspected drug overdose, according to media report.
Here’s an update on that.
A spokeswoman for the D.C. Medical Examiner, LaShon Beamon, said Thursday that Barry died of acute phencyclidine toxicity. The synthetic drug is commonly known as PCP or angel dust. Beamon says the death was ruled accidental.
Christopher Barry had struggled with drug abuse and was given probation in 2011 for PCP possession. His father also had substance abuse problems, and was famously arrested in 1990 after he was caught smoking crack cocaine in an FBI sting operation.
