Dr. David Fowler testified Floyd’s main cause of death was due to blockage of arteries, enlarged heart, drugs. As someone who watched the trial, I thought that Fowler was the most honest and accurate medical witness. The prosecution witnesses were amazingly dishonest, but no one is going after them. Take the expert who testified that in the thousands of cases of fentanyl overdose death data that he had examined the average was above the level found in Floyd (the median was below it). He claimed that proved Floyd didn’t die from a drug overdose. It was idiotic. If I died with a level 12 in my body, that doesn’t mean that I still wouldn’t have died at a level 4, right? But no one is going after the “experts” on the other side. Fox News has this info:
