Aug 21, 2018

A medical student and weightlifter had a heart attack and died because he had been taking steroids, an inquest heard today. Adriano Villavicencio, 23, was found dead on his sofa bed in Bookham, Surrey, by his stepfather surrounded by needles and a pile of pharmaceuticals, including an anabolic steroid. He was training to be a doctor at Imperial College London when he died, and had been due to fly to Finland to compete in a weightlifting competition.
