May’s autopsy was released to the public and showed the death of the popular Playboy model was brought on by a ‘neck manipulation by chiropractor’ after she suffered an injury from her fall during the photo shoot.
The 34-year-old who was deemed “Queen of Snapchat” from Playboy took to Twitter to update her fans and ask for a possible pain reliever stating, “Pinched a nerve in my neck on a Photoshoot and got adjusted this morning. It really hurts! Any home remedy suggestions loves? XOXO.”
According to TMZ, the chiropractor visit resulted in the physician tearing an artery in her neck that stopped the flow of blood to her brain. May was a single mother that left behind a 7-year-old daughter, and a GoFundMe was created to help the daughter.
The funds donated have surpassed $36,000 and the family said, “Katie’s family plans on using any money raised to help pay for education, Mia’s daily life and to help her dad with the costs of parenting.”
The blonde bombshell was at the highest pinnacle of her career with a massive following when she passed. She appeared in such publications as Playboy Magazine and Sports Illustrated, with over 2 million followers on Instagram alone.
In her final Instagram post, which was posted just days before her death, she wrote: “Hope everyone is having a great Monday! It’s very windy here today.”
May, a Pittsburg native is the youngest of four children. Both her parents were teachers who worked more than one job to supply for their large family. The model is a massive sports fan as well, cheering for her home teams, Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates.
May’s death has been ruled an accidental death and it is currently unknown if the family is pursuing legal action against the chiropractor.
