He isn't the first. He won't be the last. You'd probably
recognize him. Check out this picture...


his death was somewhat steroid/BB related. He was injecting synthol and it he got a vein, the synthol traveled to his brain/heart/lungs which was fatal.

I wasn't going to post on this thread, but I'm not going to sit by and let a
bunch of assholes (or at least one ASSHOLE) trash someone needlessly.

Curtis was not an IFBB Pro, but he was a top level national amateur competitor.

He was also a well known strongman competitor, but beyond this, Curtis was
truly a nice guy. A gentle giant if you will.

I understand that Curtis' body is currently being autopsied, but it is thought
that he died, NOT OF ANYTHING RELATED TO STEROIDS, but do to a blood clot that
formed when he ruptured a vein in his leg, moving either to his brain or heart.

It is both totally inconsiderate, and insolently speculative to use the death
of someone to promote your anti-steroid rhetoric.

Doubtless some of the Holier Than Thou magazines and posters to this board will
take this opportunity to use this tragedy to make their anti-steroid position
seem more valid.

The fact is, people die all the time, those that use steroids and those that
don't. To assume that Curtis, or anyone, died due to steroids, and make such a
statement without even the most cursory verification is both wrong and

Curtis was a friend. I won't sit back and let some online moron like you trash
his name.

Since I can tell from your post that you don't have any knowledge of Curtis,
why don't you shut your ignorant ****ing trap before someone shuts it for

As I was writing this, Curtis' brother, Chriss called me to fill me in.

Curtis died of natural causes related to a problem that runs in his family
(cardiac related).


Curtis was regarded by friends and competitors alike as a gentle giant, and I
will always be in awe of his size, strength and gentle demeanor.

Many people don't know that Curtis had a son, Curtis Leffler Junior.

His son was one of the most important things in his life.
