Death of a young man in Eldorado; UPDATE
ELDORADO—Details are becoming more clear in the death of a young man in Eldorado, Nathan Bowen.
Initially we received reports that indicated there might have been gunplay involved; but since that time we’ve been in contact with sources very close to the family and some of the matter has been clarified (and there has been no gunplay).
Official sources advised us of his name this afternoon.
Sources close to the family have indicated that this was a drug-overdose death. During his freshman year, Nathan was big in sports and especially basketball. Unfortunately, said the sources, there was a terrible basketball accident during which Nathan’s knee was blown. He endured eight surgeries, traveling back and forth from St Louis. This week, he had had his pain pills (Lortabs) refilled. Our sources tell us that he left a note explaining why he was opting to take all of them. His mother had read the note over the phone to the sources.
His MySpace page reflected what was going through his mind, apparently: his last entry, dated Tuesday, gave his status as “lost.”
This is a very tragic situation. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers; not that there is any ‘normal’ drug-overdose death, but this is one that seems out of the ordinary and has a very sad backstory.
