Several prescription medications were found in Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua’s body at the time of his death, but the Montgomery County coroner won’t know for a few weeks whether those drugs matched prescribed levels.

Walter I. Hoffman unveiled the preliminary results of his autopsy of Bevilacqua yesterday.

Hoffman also warned that results may be inaccurate due to the body having already been embalmed when the test was taken. He said testing will be completed around March 10.
