TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- 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 Sunday 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.

Mays' wife, Deborah Mays, says the family doesn't expect to make any public statements and asked for privacy.

Mays was also featured on the reality TV show "Pitchmen" on the Discovery Channel, which followed Mays and Anthony Sullivan in their marketing jobs.

I just heard a report on Headline News that Billy was on that Jet that had a rough landing yesterday that that jet blew a front tire. I think it was a Delta jet. Not sure about the airline. Anyhow, the reporter stated that billy said a bunch of stuff from overhead on the ceiling, stuff fell and hit him pretty hard on the head. I guess Billy was joking about how hard his head was and that the stuff that fell on him hurt.
They are not saying this is the cause of death. But, who knows. It may just of been Billy's time for all we know. Guess we'll all just have to wait & see what the reports say.
I always liked Billy. He was totally believable selling any product. Hell, I even bought some stuff over the years on count of him.
Rest in peace, Billy.
