What’s the Problem?
September 15, 2017 – The victim, Linda “Gail” Godsey, died on June 21 at the age of 62, according to FOX13. Gosey and 3 family members stayed at the Graceland Hotel Guest House from June 10-13, 2017.
The coroner of Breathitt County, Kentucky, listed Legionnaires’ as the cause of death after Gail’s autopsy. Three other family members got sick on the same trip and claim to have tested positive for the disease.
The family on Thursday filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Davidson County Circuit Court. The lawsuit alleges that Guest House at Graceland didn’t properly maintain its water systems, which led to the Legionnaires’ outbreak. Defendants in the case include the Guest House, Elvis Presley Enterprises, owner of the hotel, and Pyramid Tennessee Management.
“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.”
Photos posted on social media show the Godsey family enjoying the hotel pool. They also used the hot tub — the same places local health officials ordered closed earlier this summer after a Legionnaires’ outbreak.
