The parents of Drew Ferraro — the sophomore who jumped to his death from a Crescenta Valley High School building on Feb. 10 in front of dozens of students — were reportedly notified that the teen “was thought to have been suicidal” a day earlier, according to a report accompanying autopsy results released this week.
Drew, 15, climbed to the roof a three-story building at the La Crescenta campus and jumped into a cement courtyard. Four suicide notes were found in his backpack nearby, authorities said.
Toxicology results included in the report also showed trace amounts of marijuana and anti-depressants in his bloodstream.
Dan Anderson, supervisor of the coroner's toxicology lab, said the level of marijuana represented “historical use,” meaning that it could have occurred days, weeks or even a month before Drew's death.
And the level of the anti-depressant, Citalopram, present in Drew's system was “consistent with therapeutic use,” he said.
