The son of Nash­ville, Tenn., Mayor Megan Barry died of an over­dose Sat­ur­day night in Den­ver, Barry said in an on­line state­ment.

“Early this morn­ing, we re­ceived news that no par­ents should ever have to hear,” the state­ment from Barry and her hus­band, Bruce, said.

“Our son, Max, suf­fered from an over­dose and passed away. We can­not be­gin to de­scribe the pain and heart­break that comes with los­ing our only child. Our son was a kind soul full of life and love for his fam­ily and friends.”

Max Barry, 22, grad­u­ated in June from the Univer­sity of Puget Sound, in Ta­coma, Wash.

Max Barry died at a pri­vate res­i­dence in south­ern Jef­fer­son County. Other de­tails haven’t been made pub­lic.

Den­ver po­lice spokes­woman Raquel Lopez, said she couldn’t con­firm the death with­out in­for­ma­tion about where it hap­pened. Lopez de­clined to search the depart­ment’s records and logs for the po­lice re­port of Barry’s death, say­ing that would vi­o­late the depart­ment’s pol­icy of not iden­ti­fy­ing vic­tims. Fu­neral ar­range­ments are pend­ing.
