MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - According to lawyers for the Troy Goode Family, a newly released toxicology report proved Goode did not die from a drug overdose.

Goode died after leaving a Widespread Panic concert in Southaven.

Reportedly, Goode was acting erratically and was restrained by Southaven police. He later died at the hospital.

Though it was rumored Goode died of a drug overdose, attorney Tim Edwards said the toxicology report proves otherwise.

"Troy admittedly did recreational drugs on this date. They did not kill him," Edwards said.

Both Marijuana and LSD were found in his system, but "less than half the minimum 'threshold toxic dose,'" according to the report.

The other drugs in his system were non-lethal and administered by the hospital.

"Marijuana does not kill people. LSD there are no reported deaths," Edwards added.

Edwards said now this information forces the state of Mississippi to look at how Goode was restrained by police.

A video reportedly proves Goode was hog-tied and placed face down on a stretcher, which is not illegal in Mississippi.

However, Edwards said these actions should have never been done.

"What they did was indefensible," Edwards said.
