Covenant School Shooter’s Autopsy Shows No Request For Testing For Prescription Medications

Jun 16, 2023 | Political News

The autopsy released on Monday for Nashville School shooter Audrey Elizabeth Hale shows that there were no “positive findings of toxicological significance” found, instead confirming that Hale’s death came as a result of multiple gunshot wounds fired by responding police officers. 

Hale was not tested for any prescription medications including those used for mental conditions and hormone therapy.  She was only tested for illegal and controlled substances.

The toxicology portion of the report notes that both blood and urine samples were obtained and tested for 16 different substances: amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine, cannabinoids, cocaine, fentanyl, methadone, methamphetamine, opiates, oxycodone, and phenycyclidine. There was no evidence of any of those in Hale’s system.

No tests were run to detect any additional substances, despite circumstances that some believe pointed to the need for those.
