Timothy Magyari - Police Still Baffled by Youth's Death Concluded...
Police Still Baffled by Youth's Death Concluded from Page B-l B-l B-l in 1967 hoping to play on the tennis team. Coach Stan Drobac of the MSU varsity said he vaguely remembers Magyari. MSU had its best tennis team and Magyari was lost in the shuffle. It's not hard to understand how disillusioned he might have become over the tennis situation," Drobac Drobac said. I SEE it all the time. A kid comes here with high hopes and even though he might ,be aU-city, aU-city, aU-city, we have kids who are all-state all-state all-state and can't cut it. It's tough to face it and tell him he can't make it." Magyari stayed on in school until spring term of 1971 when the United States Army and the draft confronted him. His solution was to eat and he ate himself up to nearly 260 pounds and out of shape for the draft. Sometime after he dropped out of school last year Magyari drifted .- .- into the world of dugs. A FRIEND said Magyari went to California this year and stayed with his sister while trying to kick his habit. -' -' Police learned that the dead youth also dealt heavily in hallu-cigenic hallu-cigenic hallu-cigenic drugs, using them heavily heavily and selling them profitably. A roommate of Magyari's gave officials an account of the evening Magyari died. The roommate was at a friend's house when Magyari came in and said he had taken LSD and wanted to get some heroin. MAGYARI AND the roommate left the friend's house in Magyari's car. The roommate said he became alarmed at Magyari's erratic driving driving and left him at the St. Therese Church parking lot and walked back to the friend's house. The roommate said Magyari returned returned hours later, telling the friends he had taken heroin. A fresh bandage encased his hand. . - Magyari collapsed monents later, the roommate said. He was revived momentarily but passed out again, he said. So they gave him solutions of salt and water and then mustard and water. WHEN HE didn't revive, they carried the hefty Magyari to the bathroom and held him under a cold shower, the roommate said. When he didn't respond they took him to the hospital where he was dead on arrival. When the drug tests proved negative negative police, were left with a headache. headache. Could he have drowned by himself in the bathtub, or did someone someone give him a hot shot of something something that escaped the drug analysis, analysis, or did the crime lab make a mistake in its findings? His shriveled skin would indicate ' he was soaked in water for a longer time then a quick trip under a cold shower. But with his build, police are dubious he could have slid under the water in the bathtub and drowned since his body would displace displace more water than the tub could hold. - THE HOT shot remains a possibility, possibility, but who gave it to him. Did someone with whom he had drug dealings set him up or did he accidentally accidentally administer too much of ' something to himself ? And if he did, why did it not show up in the specimens examined by the crime lab? If the specimens were removed from the body too soon, that is before a drug had - time to be absorbed in tissue, then that drug would not show up in the analysis. But while authorities ponder the case, Timothy Mark Magyari, who came to Michigan State full of promise, is another number in the county clerk's death file, distinguished distinguished by Jack Holmes' notation on his death certificate "died of asphyxia - cause unknown."
