Tampa police say Billy Mays, the television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.
Authorities say Mays was pronounced dead this morning after being found by his wife at home. There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.

My gosh. What a strange week this has been. Four familiar faces gone in a week.
He was on a plane that made a hard landing in Tampa yesterday. He was quoted in a news report as saying that something fell and hit him on the head.

His house is over by the gun club where we shoot. My kid shot practice this morning; we didn’t see anything unusual. Strange.

Yes he was annoying but he was good at his job. RIP Billy!
Do you suppose he died of hair dye poisoning? Just a random thought, ignore it.

This is annoying, no offense to you. Yes Billy Mays has died, we get it now. I liked him too, he kept me mesmerized when I should have been sleeping many a times. But one thing he never did was take away my ability to use the search function.
