Autopsy: Bevilacqua had prescription drugs in system
February 28, 2012 (WPVI) -- A preliminary autopsy report on the late Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua shows he had prescribed pharmaceuticals in his system at the time of his death last month.
The Montgomery County coroner, however, says more testing is needed.
District Attorney Risa Ferman ordered the review, citing the timing of the cardinal's death on January 31st, and a ruling the previous day that he was competent to testify in the sex abuse case against two priests and a monsignor.
Bevilacqua was 88 years old.
