DURHAM, NC- A prestigious East Coast University is investigating an incident involving George Floyd’s toxicology report.
Duke University, which is located in Durham, North Carolina, is apparently investigating how a printout of George Floyd’s toxicology report, with comments insinuating that drugs played a roll in his death, ended up pinned to a Black History Month bulletin board display on campus, according to the school and reports.
According to reports, Duke University had a bulletin board displayed which honored black victims of police violence. On Saturday, March 20th, the toxicology report was found pinned to the display, and allegedly had handwritten remarks in pink pen written on it that said:
“Mix of drugs presents in difficulty breathing! Overdose? Good Man? Use of fake currency is a felony!”

As Law Enforcement Today reported, the police interaction with Floyd occurred in May of 2019, when police stopped a vehicle that Floyd was riding in. Video evidence from the police worn body cameras captured the incident which showed that Floyd refused orders to place his hands on the dash of the car and to exit.
Instead, Floyd is seen shoving what is described as pills in his mouth in attempts to prevent officers from charging him with possession of drugs without a prescription.
