(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."

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