Was Cocaine a Factor in the Death of Billy Mays?

I’m really not happy about the way information was presented in the statement issued by Dr. Leszek Chrostowski, the associate medical examiner in Hillsborough County, Florida who conducted the autopsy of Billy Mays. Without any information regarding how often or how much Billy Mays used cocaine, and even though there was none in his system when he died, cocaine was listed as a contributing factor in his death. Dr. Chrostowski, this is a man’s reputation you are playing around with. It’s not your “teachable moment” about the perils of recreational drug use. I refer you all to the official family statement.

  1. aside from the coke, this guy was jacked up on all kinds of narcotics…i beleive the list of drugs found in his system was hydrocodone, oxycodone, tramadol, Xanax and Valium.

  2. Dr. Chrostowski needs to be investigated. Could this be a case of a person trying to make a name for himself? How disturbingly pathetic!

  3. I would have been surprised if drugs had not been found in his system during the autopsy. The guy made a career out of shouting at his audience while pitching household cleaning products and novelty items. How could someone possibly do what he did without using drugs? Sometimes I think you Americans will call anyone a hero. We already know that you’ll buy anything.
