Pitchman Billy Mays Found Dead
Posted Jun 28th 2009 11:50AM by TMZ Staff



TMZ has confirmed TV pitchman Billy Mays was found dead today in his home in Tampa, Florida early this morning.

According to the Tampa PD, the 50-year-old TV pitchman was found unresponsive by his wife Deborah at 7:45 AM.

TMZ has learned Mays' body has already been removed from his home.

Mays had just returned from Philadelphia, where he shot a new OxiClean commercial. He was a passenger aboard a plane that suffered a blown front tire upon landing. He told a local TV station, "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."

We're told Mays was at his home around 6:00 PM last night, and according to a source Mays was "acting fine and normal ... he was talking business with his father-in-law."

According to cops, there are no signs of forced entry to the residence and no foul play is suspected.

The Medical Examiner's office is expected to complete the autopsy by tomorrow afternoon.

Billy's wife Deborah just released the following statement:

Although Billy lived a public life, we don't anticipate making any public statements over the next couple of days. Our family asks that you respect our privacy during these difficult times.

Story developing ...

I was wondering the same thing... that's why you NEVER take head injuries lightly.

Celebrity deaths usually come in 3's - this has been a really freakish week. And 2 celebrities passing away at the age of 50 and one at 62! Sure makes you appreciate your life all that more.

Billy Mays was a household name and I really liked him. : Billy and thoughts and prayers out to his family.
