Floyd’s autopsy report is still a matter of debate.

Several social media users on Thursday claimed that Floyd died of fentanyl drug lethal overdose.

Official medical and court records determined that police restraint, not drug use, was the primary cause of death, and the evidence does not support the claim that Floyd had lethal levels of drugs in his system.

However, there is no publicly available evidence to support the claim that Floyd died as a result of a drug overdose, specifically fentanyl and methamphetamine, rather than the actions of law enforcement officers. But still, the noise in social media looks in no direction. Many users questioned the credibility of the autopsy reports, as several claim the death of Floyd was due to a drug overdose.

According to medical examiners and experts testifying in the Chauvin trial, Floyd had heart disease and hypertension, and toxicology tests revealed recent use of the two drugs, none of these were the causes of Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020.

Medical examiners ruled Floyd’s death a homicide because law enforcement officers compressed him against the road, depriving his body of oxygen, resulting in cardiopulmonary arrest. Though Derik Chawin’s lawyer argued, Floyd died due to a drug overdose.

However, what makes the rumors of Floyd’s drug overdose is the report. As it states, Floyd had visible blunt force injuries on his body, including on his face and arm, according to a detailed autopsy report and a toxicology report by NMS Labs made public with the consent of Floyd’s family and legal representatives, and a blood screen revealed his fentanyl levels at 11 ng/mL, norfentanyl at 5.6 ng/mL, and methamphetamine at 19 ng/mL, as reported.
