Haverford College senior died of GHB overdose
    #4246143 - 06/02/05 12:03 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Student died of GHB overdose
June 1, 2005 - zwire.com

HAVERFORD TWP. - The cause of death of a 22-year-old Haverford College senior that died in April has been determined as a drug overdose, according to the medical examiner.

Brian Kovaric was discovered April 13 in the basement of one of the college's residential buildings. The cause of death was acute Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB) intoxication, according to the report.

GHB is a "powerful, rapidly acting central nervous system depressant," according to www.whitehousedrugpolicy. gov. When used in certain doses, it can produce euphoric and hallucinogenic states. Known by several street names including "Liquid E," GHB is sold as powder that dissolves easily in liquid or as clear liquid. As of November 2000, GHB has been linked to 71 deaths, according to www.DEA. gov.

Kovaric, a native of Vancouver, Wash., was a National Merit Commended Scholar and was to be the recipient of the American Chemical Society Scholastic Achievement Award at this month's commencement ceremony. After graduation, Kovaric planned to attend either UCLA or Yale University for a Ph.D. in biochemistry.

Kovaric's death marks the second incident involving GHB at Haverford College in recent months, according to police reports obtained by the NEWS. Earlier this year a former employee, who worked in the chemistry lab at Haverford College, was arrested for ordering Gamma Butyrolactone and Safrole, according to police reports. Safrole is used as a main precursor in the manufacturing of Ecstasy and Gamma Butyrolactone is used to make GHB, reports said.

The 24-year-old man allegedly told police that he was made to order the drugs, using a Haverford College credit card, by a man he knew only as Tony.
