Duke University is investigating how a printout of George Floyd’s toxicology report, with comments insinuating his death was related to drugs, ended up pinned to a Black History Month bulletin board display on campus, according to the school and reports.
The flier was found Saturday pinned to a display honoring black victims of police violence and was inscribed with handwritten remarks in pink pen that said: “Mix of drugs presents in difficulty breathing! Overdose? Good Man? Use of fake currency is a felony!”
Floyd — who died after a police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes — had allegedly used a counterfeit $20 bill at a Minneapolis store before his death. The incident sparked massive anti-racism protests across the country.

Originally, the Hennepin County medical examiner announced Floyd, 46, had “recent methamphetamine use” and “fentanyl intoxication,” as well as hypertension and coronary artery disease, and said they were possible contributing factors to his death.
