I totally agree. However, my understanding was that it was a combination of a pesticide he was using in his garden with cocaine in his system. From what I know from people who know him, he was not an "excess" guy, like so many others we could name. He just got really, really unlucky one day. Probably should have hired a gardener, too. :(
