Internationally known TV product pitchman Billy Mays was found dead in his South Tampa home this morning.

Wife Deborah woke up and found Mays, 50, in bed and not breathing, according to Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy. He was dead when Tampa Fire Rescue arrived at Mays' house at 2853 Bowen Daniel Drive. Emergency workers pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m.

Mays had no obvious injuries, and there were no signs of forced entry at the home that overlooks Old Tampa Bay, No foul play is suspected, police said.

I am still in disbelief of the whole thing! :(

Now what I am going to watch on Wednesdays? I've been a big fan of the show Pitchmen but I can't see how the show could continue as it was basically all about him.

It is said that his final television interview was on WTVT-TV here in Tampa. He was on a flight that popped a tire apon landing. He was hit in the head with a suitcase, he said to WTVT-TV, "I got hit on the head, but I got a hard head"

Not hard enough apparently.

He complained to his wife that he wasnt feeling right shortly before he went to bed the night of his death.

When I first heard about this, I was just saying "what!". It kind of hit me weirdly because Michael Jackson just died too!
