Wyoming coroner releases autopsy results on Cresta

Laramie County Coroner Martin Luna has released the autopsy results on the July 28, 2012, death of Wrangler National Finals Rodeo heeler Broc Cresta, 25, at the 2012 Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo.

“My brother’s death was a tragic accident,” said Broc’s brother, Brent, 28. “Broc took his own prescription pain medication, and combined with alcohol and a climate he wasn’t used to, it caused the perfect storm. He went to sleep and never woke up.”

“The world of professional rodeo lost a talented young cowboy and a fine young man the day Broc Cresta died,” said Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Commissioner Karl Stressman. “He left an impressive mark in his quarter century on this earth, and he will not be forgotten.” F
