Roland Eugene Phillips was killed along with 5- year old Phillip Campbell when the car they were in was swept in the rainbow Creek on January 22, 2017 according to Times San Diego
Today, the autopsy was just completed and alcohol and methamphetamine were found in the bloodstream of the 73 year old man. The alcohol and methamphetamine contributed to his death when he was killed along with the five year old boy during the rain storms two months ago. They were both swept into the rainbow Creek while riding together in Phillip’s truck.
Roland Eugene Phillips lived in Fallbrook and was found dead near his overturned truck. The vehicle sunk on the edge of the rainbow Creek on January 22nd. The body of the five year old boy named Phillip Campbell, was found in the creek and waterway four days later after an extensive search.
Roland Phillips was a close friend of the boys family. The official cause of death for both was drowning. However, methamphetamine and alcohol was in Rowland Phillip system. This is very disturbing news for the family. The San Diego coroner said the amount of meth present in Phillip’s system would have likely cause confusion and anxiety during the rain storm.
