Infomercial Pitchman Billy Mays Found Dead
UPDATE #2: It appears that Mays’ death was actually related to heart disease.
UPDATE: Billy was reportedly not wearing a seat belt when he was hit in the head during the flight yesterday.
Billy Mays, the man who could sell just about anything, was found dead today in his Florida home. He was 50 years old.
According to officials, the infomercial guru was discovered by his wife Deborah. There are no indications to believe that any foul play was involved.
Just yesterday, Billy was onboard a US Airways flight that took a hard landing at the Tampa International Airport. Although several passengers did receive minor bumps and bruises, it’s not known whether Mays’ death could have been related to that incident.
The man who sold everything from Orange Glo to OxiClean had been appearing on the Discovery Channel with fellow marketer Anthony Sullivan. Pitchmen is next scheduled to air this Wednesday at 10:00.
