What’s the Problem?
September 15, 2017 – The woman who died, Linda “Gail” Godsey, was 62-years-old and stayed at the Graceland Hotel in July, according to Metro. At least 8 other guests at the hotel have fallen ill with the disease in recent weeks.
An autopsy report filed with the Kentucky State Medical Examiner’s Office lists “Legionella pneumonia (Legionnaires’ disease)” as the immediate cause of death, although earlier medical problems suffered by Godsey were “contributory.”
“She loved to adventure into new places and see news things and that was one of the things we decided to do,” said Godsey’s daughter Chrisandrea.”There`s a lot of history in that city and then we picked the Elvis Presley Entertainment Center because that was something, you know mom hadn’t been there and she was interested in seeing that.”
Godsey’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Guest House at Graceland, Elvis Presley Enterprises, owner of the hotel, and Pyramid Tennessee Management.
The $92 million, 450-room Guest House at 3600 Elvis Presley Boulevard opened last October. Department officials announced the outbreak in June and said it appeared to be linked to the hot tub and pool at the hotel, which opened last October.
