DENISON, Tex. -- Denison police officials say drugs may have played a part in Sean Fryar's death.

The Dallas County Medical Examiners office ruled Fryar’s death as an accidental drowning due to the effects of amphetamines.

The report does not state what kinds of amphetamines were in Fryar's system nor does it explain the role they may have played in his death.

The report also shows Fryar had a blood alcohol content of 0.08.

"The autopsy results are consistent with a lot of the information that we have gathered during the investigation."

Fryar disappeared April 15th, the day after the Denison High School prom. On April 19th, two fisherman on Waterloo Lake noticed Fryar's body floating in the water.

Police are still investigating how Fryar ended up there but say the autopsy gives them some clues..

"Anytime you mix any substance together it’s always dangerous and by themselves, they're dangerous, and when you mix them it just magnifies that," said Lt. Mike Eppler of the Denison Police Department.

Officials are not releasing how Fryar came in contact with the amphetamines or if any charges will be filed.

They say it's too soon to rule anything out.

"We don’t ever close the doors until we close a case. We keep all of our options open in every case we work until it’s finally closed down."

Police say they will continue to question everyone involved in the investigation and are looking into how Fryar got the drugs.

Sean Fryar was 17 years old.

    dear denison mother. i was one of sean's friends. and i do believe that not everyone there was drunk. i find this quite offending. it's almost as though you are steriotyping teenagers, i assure you, we are not all drunks and drug abusers, i miss sean very much, and if i were there i would never have let him go to that lake, or at least i would go with him. but please, don't steriotype us. thank you.

    Children, please realize that alcohol is a central nervous system depressant. When used in conjunction with other drugs, the effect can be hard to guess. This child had a heavy heart and his friends let him walk away, knowing he was sad and drunk. That is because they were drunk too. Just like "friends don't let friends drive drunk", you should all take a good look at each other and ask yourself "Is he or she really okay?" This child masked his pain with humor so I know a lot of people never really saw how sad he could get. this death was senseless and could have been prevented.

    I realize that is probably the last thing his family needs... but we can't go around protecting and making excuses for everyone all the time. Sometimes we have to come to the realization that what kids do and what parents think their kids do aren't always perfect matches.

    If Sean was an ADD patient the amphetamines could have easily been his medication. Many medications for ADD are amphetamines such as Adderal and Ritalin. I would look to that first before pointing fingers. That's probably the last thing this family needs is accusations that their son was doing something so heinus.
