Attorney: Cocaine was out of character for Jose Fernandez

However, it remains unclear whether Fernandez, the boat's owner, or one of two others on board, 27-year-old Emilio Jesus Macias and 25-year-old Eduardo Rivero, was driving when the boat crashed on September 25, killing all three men.

Miami Marlins star Jose Fernandez, a dominant pro baseball pitcher and hero in Miami's Cuban community, was legally drunk and had cocaine in his system when he was killed in a boat crash in late September, an autopsy and toxicology report released on Saturday found.

Reports show Fernandez's blood alcohol was at 0.147, almost twice the legal limit, and he had cocaine in his system at the time of his death.

The reports show that all of the men suffered blunt force injuries to the head and torso areas.

Emilio Jesus Macias, 27, and Eduardo Rivero, 25, were also killed in the crash.

It is unknown who was driving the boat at the time of the crash.

"That leads me to think, could this be an isolated incident? Yes".

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said the medical examiner had not publicly released the autopsy reports after they were completed at the request of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which is conducting a criminal investigation into the fatal boat crash.

Ralf Fernandez, who is not related to the late Marlins ace, did not say who he believes might be arrested in the case or what charges they could be facing.

Chris Royer, a Fort Lauderdale lawyer representing family members of Macias and Rivero, told the Sun Sentinel that his clients had been told about the findings and they would make a statement having taken some time to discuss the reports.

The affidavit said officials also had recovered a receipt for alcohol from American Social Bar & Kitchen, where the trio had been before the crash. "Why do you think there's still a criminal investigation pending?"

Fernandez was a star on the rise becoming the Miami Marlins top pitcher, the National Rookie of the Year in 2013 and a two-time all star.
