Boyd won NBC's "America's Got Talent" and its $1 million prize in 2008. The county coroner tells TMZ. "So sad. Rest peacefully, Neal E. Boyd".

Boyd had been slowly recovering after a crash past year that left him and his mother badly hurt. "[Recovery is] a very slow progress".

"I shattered a lot of bones, and shattered my hip, which has left me nearly unable to use that leg for now", Boyd told the Southeast Missourian in February.
