This Just In . . .

Billy Mays (Michael C. Weimar/Discovery Communications LLC)

Billy Mays probably died of a heart attack, a Florida medical examiner said yesterday. The TV pitchman, 50, died in his sleep Saturday night. There was early speculation that a head bump during a rough airplane landing that day contributed to his death. But Hillsborough County Medical Examiner Vernard Adams said Mays had no evidence of head trauma -- but did have heart disease, which is "perfectly consistent with sudden death." The official cause will be determined after tests are completed in a few weeks.

I really started liking his booming voice and his BLUE shirt. I watch every episode of PITCHMEN. I will surely miss him, and I think that it will be to find a replacement for him.
