Another "Well Known" Dies at 50

Pitch man Billy Mays was involved in a rough landing in Tampa international airport days ago - Billy posted about it last on his Twitter last night, saying, "Just had a close call landing in Tampa. The tires blew out upon landing. Stuck in the plane on the runway. You can always count on US Air."
No one seams to think that the head bump that he received during his landing had to do with his death on Sunday.
His wife found him in their home unresponsive at 07:45 and called for help. It's not known what the cause of death is yet, but an autopsy is scheduled.
Billy had just signed a large deal with Taco Bell and was going to start working with them soon after another hip replacement surgery scheduled Monday.
Recently he's been seen on commercials for a wide variety of products and is featured on the reality TV show "Pitchmen" on the Discovery Channel, which follows Mays and Anthony Sullivan in their marketing jobs. Billy Mays was 50 years old.
