Playboy model Katie May, who died at the age of 34 in February, passed away after a chiropractor fatally injured her neck, TMZ reported Wednesday, October 19.
According to the news outlet, which cited the late beauty's death certificate from the Los Angeles County Coroner, May died from a blunt force injury that tore her left vertebral artery after a visit to the chiropractor.

The fatal injury (which the death certificate reportedly identifies as "neck manipulation by chiropractor") cut off the blood flow to the so-called Queen of Snapchat's brain. The death is listed as accidental, TMZ reported.
In late January, days before her death, May tweeted that she "pinched a nerve" in her neck while doing a photo shoot and "got adjusted" during two separate visits to her chiropractor.
