For all you people out there who do not know who Billy Mays is, he is the pitchman
you gave us Oxy Clean, Magic Putty, and whatever else he used his alerting pitch
From Yahoo: "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.
Mays' wife, Deborah Mays, told investigators that her husband had complained he
didn't feel well before he went to bed some time after 10 p.m. Saturday night, Tampa
police spokeswoman Laura McElroy said."
Billy Mays was my current hero, with his alerting voice. At first, he was just an
annoying guy on television throughout my life, but before and after watching him on
Conan O' Brian, he became more than just that voice, he was a pictman to be
remembered. We will miss him, but will still imitate him.
Rest in Peace Billy Mays- July 20, 1958- June 28, 2009.
