LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - September 11, 2012

Police said Tuesday that Ryan Brubaker's body was discovered shortly after 8 a.m. by a family member at their home in Lancaster County. Brubaker is the son of state Sen. Michael Brubaker.

Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni told the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era that the young man's death appears to be an accident, and a toxicology report is forthcoming.

The younger Brubaker had several drug-related charges and driving-under-the-influence charges pending against him in court.

In one case, he was charged earlier this year after police say he exchanged prescription drugs with another young man, who later died of a drug overdose.
