New court documents have uncovered two memorandums, dated May 26 and June 1, that suggest the entire mainstream media was wrong about the death of George Floyd.
Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker concluded George Floyd likely died from a fentanyl overdose and found “no physical evidence suggesting” that he died of asphyxiation.
“AB (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,” says a memo dated June 1, outlining a May 31 virtual with Dr. Baker.
As reported by FOX 9, one memorandum filed May 26 regarding a virtual meeting with Dr. Baker said that the medical examiner concluded that “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 report added.
The other memorandum, filed June 1, showed that Baker said, “Floyd’s level of fentanyl was ‘pretty high,’ and a potentially ‘fatal level,’” FOX 9 reported.
The June 1 memo added: “AB (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.”
Floyd died on May 25 following an arrest during which an officer knelt on the 46-year-old’s neck while drugged-out Floyd was resisting arrest.
Video of the incident quickly spread throughout social media before the mainstream media took it and ran with it before even knowing the fact – sparking a series of destructive riots that has only escalated since then.
Earlier this month more evidence was discovered to counter the popular narrative surrounding the incident. Body camera footage of the arrest was leaked by the Daily Mail which showed Floyd – clearly under the influence of drugs – crying out that he couldn’t breathe before ever being held down and refusing to get in the cop car.
Independent medical examiners paid by the family of George Floyd claimed that his death was caused by “traumatic asphyxia due to the compression of his neck and back during restraint by police,” the court filings show.
Earl Gray, an attorney for Thomas Lane, one of the four former Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of Floyd, said charges should be dropped against his client because Floyd died from a fentanyl overdose.
“All he had to do is sit in the police car, like every other defendant who is initially arrested. While attempting to avoid his arrest, all by himself, Mr. Floyd overdosed on Fentanyl,” Gray wrote in a motion.
“Given his intoxication level, breathing would have been difficult at best. Mr. Floyd’s intentional failure to obey commands, coupled with his overdosing, contributed to his own death.”
While the mainstream media was quick to spread falsehoods about the death of Floyd because it fit their narrative – it’s unlikely they will bother issuing a correction.
