LOS ANGELES -- Southern California kicker Mario Danelo was drunk when he plunged over a cliff to his death, but the cause of his death was "undetermined," according to a coroner's report released Monday.

A toxicological report accompanying Danelo's autopsy report found he had a 0.23 blood-alcohol level, nearly three times the legal limit for driving in California. No drugs were detected in his body, the report said.

The autopsy report said the cause of death was multiple traumatic injuries, but "because of the unanswered questions, we are stating the manner of death as undetermined," Deputy Medical Examiner Jeffrey Gutstadt of the Los Angeles County Coroner's office wrote in the report.

Danelo, 21, was found Jan. 6 more than 100 feet down a rocky cliff in San Pedro. Police said from the outset that foul play was ruled out and his death was either an accident or a suicide.

Following Danelo's death, several Southern California players said they were convinced the kicker did not take his own life.

A USC spokesman declined to comment about the coroner's report. Danelo's brother, Joey Danelo, was not immediately available for comment.

The report also couldn't ascertain what Danelo's state-of-mind was before his death but he "would have had to scale a wall to get to the strip of land before the steep drop-off of approximately 150 feet while under the influence of alcohol."

Danelo made 15 of 16 field goals this season and led the Trojans in scoring with 89 points. He made two field goals in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day to help USC beat Michigan 32-18.

He missed two field goals in his two-year career at USC, going 26-for-28, and he was 127-of-134 on extra points. He set NCAA single-season records with 83 extra points and 86 attempts in the 2005 season.

Danelo, the son of former NFL kicker Joe Danelo, was a walk-on at USC in 2003 and received a scholarship two years later.

I'm fairly familiar with the area and the scene. I have little doubt that he was partying but a "walk in the park" would still just be that even highly buzzed.

My guess is that there is an unknown perp involved - a stranger to the neighborhood. And this crime will never be solved.
