Police: TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead at home – Yahoo! News.

Wow, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson . . . and now Billy Mays.  He probably won’t be as memorable as MJ, but he’ll always be remembered for pitching those crazy As Seen On TV products.  R.I.P., Billy.

"Hi, Billy Mays here with . . ."

TAMPA, Fla. – Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.

Tampa police said Mays was found unresponsive by his wife Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m.

There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play, said Lt. Brian Dugan of the Tampa Police Department, who wouldn’t answer any more questions about how Mays’ body was found because of the ongoing investigation. The coroner’s office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.
