I have been getting so many page views on an article I put up earlier this month about the death of Miss October Playmate 1992, Tiffany Sloan. The question that was on most people's mind was the cause of death for this beautiful young woman who died at the age of 35.
I finally came across a post at a website called Freethought Forum from someone who used to know her. While I can't give definite confirmation that this was truly the cause of her death, the poster says that it was from a drug overdose.
The poster, Miss Lady Shea, had this to say:
Another weird coincidence, a first name/location combo on Tiffany's obituaryguestbook was familiar to me, so I took a stab and looked her up on Facebook, and asked if she was my old friend with a new last name. Sure was. I had mentioned her last week to a mutual friend, wondering how she was.
Anyway, she confirmed that Tiffany ODd, probably purposefully, on prescription meds of some kind. She had been hospitalized for pancreatitis, had a drinking problem, and attempted suicide before. What a sad waste.

The obituary for Tiffany, which appeared in The Las Vegas Review Journal, said only this:
TIFFANY SLOAN Tiffany Marie Sloan, 35, a model, of Las Vegas, passed away Nov. 1, 2008. She was born May 29, 1973, in Orange County, Calif., and had resided in Las Vegas for 17 years. Tiffany was destined to shine. She was named Playboy Magazine's Playmate of the Month in October 1992, and continued on with her modeling and numerous television guest appearances. Her kindness and irresistible charm drew in the countless friends she had made. Tiffany will be missed by them all. Services are pending.
If you go to the obituary post at the Review-Journal, you can sign her memorial book.
One final thought. I found this poem at Poetry.com. It was written this year by Tiffany Marie Sloan. Although I can't confirm that it is definitely this Tiffany, the poem sounds haunting when you consider what others have posted about her cause of death. If this is her, it truly sounds like her heart was aching.
