An autopsy report released Friday said cocaine contributed to the death of TV pitchman Billy Mays.

The 50-year bearded TV personality died of a heart attack in his sleep. His wife found him unresponsive June 28 at their condo in Tampa, Fla.

A release from the medical examiner's office in Hillsborough County, Fla., said that although Mays died from heart disease, cocaine use was a contributing cause of death.
