    No mention of HCM, but difficulty in breathing & a history of heart disease, I'm betting its his ticker. If it was, I'm sure they would found it during the autopsy. Perhaps they are waiting till all reports are in to be sure.

    Danny Gans, the renowned Las Vegas showman, died suddenly in his sleep on May 1 and the cause of the 52-year old’s death was unknown though he reportedly had trouble breathing. A family member told RadarOnline.com exclusively that the mystery surrounding Gans’ death continues after the autopsy was deemed “inconclusive.”

    “Danny had high blood pressure along with a history of heart disease in his family,” the source added. The coroner’s office declined to comment when contacted. The autopsy report is expected to be released in the coming week after the toxicology tests are completed.

    Gans was found at home by his wife Julie. The paramedics were called but Gans was pronounced dead shortly after.

    A memorial service has been set for May 21 at 3 pm at the Encore Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. It is not open to the public and is invitation-only.

      The LA Times reported it was a bad interaction with a pain killer and his other ailments (including an enlarged heart due to hypertension). Scary this can happen!
