R.I.P. Billy Mays


, Fla. (June 28, 2009)—TV pitchman Billy Mays, known for his energetic hawking of such products as Orange Glo and OxiClean, was found dead Sunday at his home in Tampa, Fla.

May’s wife, Deborah, found her husband’s body.

She said the family doesn’t expect to make any public statement and asked for privacy.

There was no evidence of a break-in, and investigators don’t suspect foul play in the death.

An autopsy could be completed Monday.

The Web site TMZ.com is reporting that Mays was struck in the head by something that fell from a luggage rack during a rough landing Saturday aboard a U.S. Airways flight.

The plane’s front tire blew out after the jet touched down.

Fox told a Tampa TV station something struck him in the head, TMZ reported.

He reportedly wasn’t wearing a seatbelt at the time of the landing.

Mays, 50, also appeared on the Discovery Channel’s reality TV show, “Pitchmen.”
