Fans of self-proclaimed 'Snapchat Queen' Katie May were devistated to discover that she had died in February 2015.
The star had reportedly suffered a stroke, but no one knew what had triggered it.
A coroner's report covering Katie's passing has been leaked online and it shows that the stroke was caused by a routine neck alignment surgery.
The report states that the “neck manipulation by [a] chiropractor” tore an artery in her neck and completely stopped the blood flow to her brain.
Katie had tweeted about her chiropractor appointments, explaining that she was needing help with a pinched nerve in her neck.
Pinched a nerve in my neck on a Photoshoot and got adjusted this morning. It really hurts! Any home remedy suggestions loves? XOXO— Katie May (@Ms_katiemay) January 29, 2016
Such a tragedy.
