Billy Mays, dead, 50, heart disease

DEVELOPING Noon Central Daylight Time: Television "pitchman" Billy Mays — who built his fame by appearing on commercials and infomercials promoting household products and gadgets — died Sunday.

Mays was found unresponsive by his wife inside his Tampa, Fla., home at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Tampa Police Department.

Police said there were no signs of forced entry to Mays' residence and foul play is not suspected. Authorities said an autopsy should be complete by Monday afternoon.

Celebrities usually die in threes.
1 Farrah Fawcett
2 Michael Jackson
3 Billy

Looks like it was heart disease.

Eric, you forgot about Ed McMahon.

I didn't forget.

Ed McMahon was a hero and I didn't want to lump him in with these minor celebrities.
