Billy Mays is Dead

The OxiClean Guy has passed away. 50-year-old Billy Mays, who is popular for his "yelling" style of pitching his products, was found unresponsive by his wife Deborah at their Tampa, Florida home Sunday morning. Emergency workers pronounced him dead by 7:45 am.

Billy Mays was at the U.S. Airways flight that made a troubled landing Saturday. He was even interviewed by Tampa Bay's Fox about it. "All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head," he narrated.

Reports say that Billy Mays was at home around 6:00 pm the previous night. He was acting fine and normal while talking business with his father-in-law.

His wife Deborah told investigators he wasn't feeling well before he went to bed around 10:00 pm Saturday.

Another head trauma case ala Natasha Richardson? There are some speculations about it but the real cause of death cannot be known until after the autopsy.

Those who watch Discovery Channel's "Pitchmen" will surely miss Billy Mays.
