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.  

 

Mays was arrested in December on multiple charges including interfering with a police officer and heroin possession.  During booking, deputies reported Mays appeared to show signs of medical distress and medics were called.  Life-saving measures were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead a short time later.
