WATCH: The truth behind the death of Paul Demayo.
Gregg Valentino reveals the truth about the death of bodybuilding champion Paul Demayo.
Gregg was the guest on Dave Palumbo’s RXMuscle.com and he explained in detail the final days of Demayo.
Paul Demayo unfortunately took the wrong path in life and ended up getting mixed up with drugs and other horrible things.
All the bad habits contributed to his death at the age of 37.
DeMayo died on June 2, 2005 in Boston from a heroin overdose. According to people close to him, DeMayo’s problems started when his wife left him and he returned to Boston after he moved to California with her to train in Gold’s Gym. He then was signed to an endorsement contract by sports nutritional supplement company Met-Rx and forced to compete in the 1995 Mr. Olympia against his wishes. He placed 12th and retired shortly afterwards.
DeMayo spent two years in the Billerica House of Correction (Middlesex County Jail) for shooting his gun in the air after an argument with his girlfriend and possession of percodan. Some months before his death he told friends he was working at Gold’s Gym on Lansdowne Street in Boston, but it was revealed later that he was fired several months earlier due to a substance abuse problem. – Source Wikipedia
