Late CSU student Matthew Martinez’ toxicology screen showed no traces of cocaine in his system, the Larimer County Coroner’s Office confirmed Tuesday.

An April 15 Collegian report on the death included information from an anonymous Fort Collins Police Services employee who was involved with the investigation who said Martinez died of a cocaine overdose.

The Coroner’s office is not releasing the cause of death.

“He did not, in fact, have any cocaine his system,” said Dean Beers, the coroner investigator in charge of Martinez’ case.
