(CNN) -- An autopsy report issued Friday by Hillsborough County, Florida, cites coc aine as a contributing factor in the death of TV pitchman Billy Mays, who died in June at age 50. "Mays died from a lethal arrhythmia of the heart caused by hypertensive and arteriosclerotic heart disease," the county said in a statement attributed to Dr. Leszek Chrostowski, the associate medical examiner who conducted the autopsy.

"He further concluded that coc aine use caused or contributed to the development of his heart disease, and therefore contributed to his death," it added.

The fact that toxicology tests detected only breakdown products of coc aine, not the drug itself, led Chrostowski to conclude that Mays had used coc aine "in the few days prior to death but not immediately prior to death."

No wonder he was always so jacked up and running around the tv screen trying to sell me oxyclean.

I wonder if he ever passed off his Cocaine Stash as Oxyclean when pulled over by a cop?

I mentioned this news article to a co-worker and their response was "Duh! Did you ever watch his infomercials? That guy was jacked up on something and it wasn't just Oxyclean."

Why doesn't this shock me?

I could not stand watching this guy on television! I referred to him as the Oxymoron!

That explains so much !!

Nobody can have that much energy naturally. I was always jealous of his energy, now I know how I to can have Mays type energy. If only he would have made infomercials for that product. I'm sure it would have flown off the shelves.

Ok, first of all no ... it doesn't explain everything.

All it says is that he had traces of the drug in his system, for all we know this was his first time.


Second of all, arrhythmia is a fickle thing that can pop up at any given moment, including in perfectly healthy athletes.

Thus causality cannot be absolutely established.

Having said that it probably didn't help.

What does however concern me a little is how some folk are quick to jump to demonize this guy.

I hope for your sake y'all time your death whilst wearing clean underwear, lest someone post that little detail on ATS and minimize all your other considerable achievements.

Sorry, it only goes to show that even 1 time of this illegal narcotic can kill you, if you are suggesting he might have only done it once. Your statement does not increase my sympathy meter one bit.

Ok, I did say right up front I couldn't stand the guy. Probably because he was a little to demon like for my taste.

Lauging once again. No, you didn't equate coc aine usage with dirty underwear, did you? Two quite completey different things!

I ask you Sir,

Would you have stated the same thing after Chris Farley's toxicology results came back?
