George Floyd’s blood test shows a fatal level of fentanyl with other drugs


The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office released a new document with a suggested cause of death. An autopsy found George Floyd died of asphyxiation, but Dr. Andrew Baker, the Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner who reviewed George Floyd’s blood test, says the substances found could lead him to conclude it was an overdose death. An autopsy performed by Dr. Baker can be found on this link.

He had a fatal level of fentanyl in his system.


The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office found in March that there were “no physical findings to support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.”

In one memorandum filed May 26 after a virtual meeting with Baker, the Attorney’s Office said Baker concluded, “The autopsy revealed no physical evidence suggesting that Mr. Floyd died of asphyxiation.” Baker told the attorney his investigation was incomplete pending a toxicology report, however.

The other memorandum filed June 1 by the Attorney’s Office indicated Baker said Floyd’s level of fentanyl was “pretty high,” and a potentially “fatal level.”

“[Dr. Andrew Baker] said that if Mr. Floyd had been found dead in his home (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors he would conclude that it was an overdose death,” the June 1 memo said.

All that matters is what is in the blood, Dr. Baker said.

Floyd was foaming at the mouth and acting strangely before the police even came.

No physical findings of asphyxia and a fatal does of a drug = officers innocent.

We knew this a while ago but now we see what is the actual evidence being submitted.

Based on this story, the examiner’s evidence cannot lead to a murder conviction.

Including the word homicide in the report will be very difficult for the examiner to explain, with no evidence to support it. There will be sweating in the witness chair if this case gets that far.

Whether it was George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Jacob Blake or any other Black citizen, it was going to happen and going to happen again and again. It doesn’t matter if the supposed “victim” was committing a crime or otherwise giving reason for police presence. It doesn’t matter how violent they were or that they were resisting arrest or fighting with the police. Facts and reasons don’t matter because these riots are orchestrated so just waiting for the inevitable event to trigger it. There are paid agitators riling up the protesters to turn them into a mob and the riots begin. The agitators are paid which makes them mercenaries, weapons and even PPE are staged for the rioters. America is under attack and Democrat politicians do nothing about it. In fact in NY passed a law to let the rioters and other criminals, even violent criminals who are arrested out of jail without bail and even the Democrat nominee for VP, Kamala Harris has even encouraged people to donate to the the organizations that provides funds to bail these criminals out of jail so they can go back and commit more mayhem.

Clearly Mr. Floyd’s condition, (EVEN BEFORE Police arrived), indicate that he was having a “overdose” reaction…OBVIOUSLY the Policemen STILL were NOT necessary to cause him to die…which is WHY they should be tried in a Court…”INNOCENT UNTIL proven guilty”!!

As for a CITIZEN protecting his PROPERTY…there should be a WHOLE LOT MORE protection happening….WHICH means…

There NEEDS to be a WHOLE LOT MORE ATTENTION focused on those “ANTI-fa” TERRORISTS thugs; who NEED to be “taken OUT”!!!! PERIOD!
