Breathitt Co. Woman Dies From Legionnaires' Disease

Posted: Updated:

BREATHITT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) - A Breathitt County family is warning people about Legionnaires' disease after their loved one passed away following a vacation. 

The family of Linda Gail Godsey says back in June, they were staying at the Guest House at Graceland when they all got sick. The CDC reports 3 cases of Legionnaires' disease, a type of bacteria that spreads through water, appears to have come from the pool and hot tub at the hotel. 

When they returned to Kentucky, Linda Godsey and her two daughters all suffered headaches, fever, chills and aches and were all diagnosed with Legionnaires' disease. Almost a week after their vacation, Linda passed away. 

Now, the family says they haven't been in contact with the Guest House at Graceland but want to warn others to be careful before booking a hotel. 

LEX 18 has reached out to the hotel, but they have not offered a comment.
