As a physician, I'd like to point out a careless error in the article that could have been prevented with simple fact checking. Mr. Barnard makes an inferential leap suggesting Ramsey's pinpoint pupils suggest that he might have been high on PCP. Identifying someone high on PCP just by appearance is difficult even for an MD, as drug induced psychosis can mimic psychosis induced by an underlying psychiatric disease such as schizophrenia or bipolar affective disorder. Also PCP actually causes mydriasis (dilation) of the pupils, NOT constriction and hence the appearance of his pupils alone suggests that he was NOT high on PCP. With that being said, other drugs of abuse cannot be ruled out.

Not to mention the prime age for schizophrenia to present itself is in the early 20s and late teens.
