George Floyd’s autopsy was conducted by Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Andrew Baker. He has been in that position since 2004.
Baker is one of the country’s most respected forensic pathologists, and he has served as president of the National Association of Medical Examiners.
The autopsy establishes Floyd’s death on May 25 was from cardiac arrest. That is consistent with the facts Floyd was suffering from multiple serious heart problems, he had no life-threatening physical injuries, and at the time of his police encounter he had a lethal level of Fentanyl in his system, along with meth, marijuana, and likely heroin. He also tested positive for COVID-19.
Floyd’s autopsy disproves the narrative pushed by the media, public officials, and protestors in the U.S. and other countries that he died from Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin cutting off his oxygen supply while he was being arrested.
Baker is known in Las Vegas for providing expert medical testimony in 2017 that contributed to Kirstin Blaise Lobato’s exoneration in the death of Duran Bailey in 2001. Baker testified during Lobato’s post-conviction hearing about Bailey’s likely time of death. It is known Lobato was home in Panaca, 165 miles from Las Vegas, at the time Baker testified Bailey died. Based on the new evidence of Bailey’s time of death by Baker and other experts, Lobato’s conviction was reversed, her charges were dismissed, and she was released after more than 15 years of imprisonment.
Charges against Chauvin related to Floyd’s death were filed before Baker had completed his autopsy. Key findings in Baker’s Autopsy Report are:
1. Floyd’s cause of death was “Cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.”
2. Floyd had severe arteriosclerotic heart disease; an enlarged heart; history of hypertension; and a left pelvic tumor.
3. Floyd had “No life-threatening injuries.” He had no facial, throat, eye, neck, larynx, scalp, skull, brain, or chest injuries.
4. Floyd tested positive for COVID-19.
5. Floyd’s Toxicology Report found in his system:
A. Fentanyl
B. Several other Fentanyl related drugs (Norfentanyl and 4-ANPP)
C. Methamphetamine
D. Cannabinoids (Marijuana)
E. Morphine (free) (Common result of heroin use)
Criminal charges are currently pending against Chauvin and three other
officers present at the time of Floyd’s death. Baker’s autopsy finds
could play a prominent role in the officer’s defense. It establishes
they did nothing to physically harm Floyd, while he had extreme drug
intoxication and severe heart trouble.
