Finally, The ENQUIRER reveals the truth about the King as never-before-seen toxicology report from 1977 reveals Presley took a lethal cocktail of 14 drugs
In a bombshell exclusive on the 37th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, The National ENQUIRER can solve one of the world’s biggest medical mysteries – his REAL cause of death. The King’s never-before-seen “Final Toxicology Report,” uncovered by The ENQUIRER, discloses that the singer did not die of a heart attack as widely reported after his death in August 1977.
Instead, it reveals he died of a massive drug overdose!
At the time of Elvis’ passing, then-medical examiner Dr. Jerry Francisco listed the cause of death as a heart attack and disputed speculation that Elvis had died of an
At a news conference soon after the death, the medical examiner announced Elvis had died due to “cardiac arrhythmia due to undetermined causes.”
But the Final Toxicology Report states that a “total of 14 drugs were detected in the various tissues analyzed.” Ten were in significant quantities, and codeine was present at 10 times the therapeutic level.
What’s more, Methaqualone (Quaalude) was at a toxic level, and three other drugs were on the toxic borderline. The conclusion was shockingly clear: Elvis died from polypharmacy – the simultaneous use of multiple drugs.

Dr. Francisco’s conclusions.

The respected pathologist, who has since died, insisted that Elvis “was a drug addict. We knew he was a drug addict because he had been at Baptist to be treated
Furthermore, the expert charged that Dr. Francisco pre-empted every other member of the autopsy team, announcing the heart-failure theory to the
world. “We were appalled that he made that announcement,” said Dr. Muirhead. “There were eight other doctors there who disagreed with him.”
