Cardinal Bevilacqua Toxicology Results


By David Chang

The preliminary results of Anthony Bevilacqua’s toxicology tests are now in.

The Montgomery County coroner says all drugs found in Bevilacqua’s system were prescribed by doctors.

Further testing needs to be done to determine if those drugs were at the correct levels his doctors had prescribed. Those results are expected to be in by March 10.

Bevilacqua died on January 30 at the age of 88. Church officials say the Cardinal was suffering from cancer and dementia. He died at the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Lower Merion.
