EDMOND, Okla. – Authorities have confirmed and Edmond teen who died in a fatal accident last month was high from huffing a can of compressed air, the type used to clean computer keyboards.

His Jeep swerved into a ravine, hit trees and flipped.
Burger played football for Yukon high school before moving to Edmond.
