    Stole headline from CBS but left it generic and non-specific to any one case since we seem to be hearing more about caffeine-related deaths these days.

    This first one pertains to 18 yr old Logan Stiner, who died after using caffeine powder.

    The coroner ruled the cause of death to be a lethal dosage of pure caffeine.

    "We had never seen this before," coroner Stephen Evans told CBS News.

    Evans said Stiner, a high school wrestler, was a healthy young man, but that the amount of caffeine in his system caused a cardiac arrhythmia and a seizure.
