BEND, OR -- The State Medical Examiner's office released toxicology results Monday of a man who died during booking at the Deschutes County Jail.  According to the Deschutes County Sheriff's office, Edwin Mays III died at the jail on December 14th, due to a Methamphetamine overdose.  Typically, meth levels are measured on a chart ranging from zero to 5; Mays' level registered at greater than 5. Investigators say he ingested the drug prior to being booked.
