TMZ is reporting that the previously unknown cause of death for Las Vegas entertainer Danny Gans has been determined to be the result of an accidental overdose of pain medication.

Gans, who passed away at the age of 52 on May 1, died due to an adverse reaction to his pain medication because of a pre-existing heart condition, according to Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy. Murphy also stated that Gans suffered from chronic pain syndrome among other health issues, and his death was not a result of drug abuse.
