Keith Kimmel, the Oklahoma activist who was fighting the state for the right to have a license plate which read 'IM GAY' and was found dead in late March, died of a drug overdose, according to authorities.
There was some question whether injuries Kimmel had received during a scuffle with police officers a few days before may have contributed to his death.
That appears not to be the case.
