A rodeo competitor whose body was found during Cheyenne Frontier Days died from a lethal combination of alcohol and pain pills.
According to an autopsy report, the cause of team roping heeler Broc Cresta's death was central nervous system suppression from oxycodone and ethanol intoxication.
His death was ruled accidental, said Laramie County Coroner Marty Luna.
"My brother's death was a tragic accident," Broc's brother, Brent, said in a statement Monday. "Broc took his own prescription pain medication and combined it with alcohol and a climate he wasn't used to n it caused the perfect storm. He went to sleep and never woke up."
Broc Cresta, 25, was found dead July 28 in his travel trailer at Frontier Park.
His roping partner, Spencer Mitchell, previously said Cresta was found by his girlfriend around 11 a.m.
Cresta was the 14th-ranked team roping heeler in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. He had roped professionally since 2007, with a little more than $350,000 in
In 2008, he won the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo team roping title with Logan Olson.
"The world of professional rodeo lost a talented young cowboy and a fine young man the day Broc Cresta died," PRCA commissioner Karl Stressman said in a statement Monday. "He left an impressive mark in his quarter century on this Earth, and he will not be forgotten."
Cheyenne Frontier Days representatives had no comment about the autopsy results.
Because Cresta's death was accidental, the Cheyenne Police Department will not pursue charges, said spokesman Sgt. Rob Dafoe.
