Billy Mays, 50, was found dead this morning by his wife. Yesterday Mays was on a flight home to Tampa when the plane he was on had a hard landing, blowing the front tires.
The police department said there was no indication of foul play.
Results of the autopsy should be available Monday afternoon.
“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,” Mays wife, Deborah, said in a statement on Sunday.
My son always spun his head around when Mays was on the tube and I’ll miss Pitchmen.
