The cause of death for Mar¬≠co Trop¬≠er, the 19-year-old son of for¬≠mer YouTube CEO Susan Woj¬≠ci¬≠c¬≠ki, has been revealed as acci¬≠den¬≠tal drug overdose. 

The Alame¬≠da Coun¬≠ty Coro¬≠ner‚Äôs report attrib¬≠uted the death to ‚Äúacute com¬≠bined drug tox¬≠i¬≠c¬≠i¬≠ty.‚ÄĚ High lev¬≠els of alpra¬≠zo¬≠lam (Xanax), cocaine, amphet¬≠a¬≠mine, and hydrox¬≠yzine were found in Trop¬≠er‚Äôs system.

A UC Berke¬≠ley fresh¬≠man major¬≠ing in math¬≠e¬≠mat¬≠ics, Trop¬≠er was dis¬≠cov¬≠ered unre¬≠spon¬≠sive in his dorm room on Feb¬≠ru¬≠ary 13, 2024. Inves¬≠ti¬≠ga¬≠tors report¬≠ed find¬≠ing sus¬≠pect¬≠ed ille¬≠gal and pre¬≠scrip¬≠tion drugs at the scene.

Fam­i­ly’s Grief and Concerns

Trop¬≠er‚Äôs grand¬≠moth¬≠er, Esther Woj¬≠ci¬≠c¬≠ki, expressed the fam¬≠i¬≠ly‚Äôs wor¬≠ries about his poten¬≠tial drug use in col¬≠lege. ‚ÄúHe ingest¬≠ed a sub¬≠stance, and we don‚Äôt know its con¬≠tents,‚ÄĚ she stat¬≠ed. ‚ÄúOne thing is cer¬≠tain, it was a drug.‚ÄĚ

A Bright Future Cut Short

Pro¬≠fes¬≠sor Free¬≠dom Cheteni, Trop¬≠er‚Äôs men¬≠tor, remem¬≠bered him as a ‚Äúmoon¬≠shot kid‚ÄĚ work¬≠ing on a ground¬≠break¬≠ing con¬≠cept using nan¬≠otech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy and AI for can¬≠cer treatment.

A Call for Awareness

This tragedy under­scores the ongo­ing strug­gles young peo­ple face with sub­stance abuse, even those from promi­nent tech fam­i­lies. The Woj­ci­c­ki fam­i­ly’s loss serves as a stark reminder of the need for increased aware­ness and resources to com­bat the ris­ing prob­lem of acci­den­tal drug over­dos­es on col­lege campuses.
