Billy Mays Dies at Age 50

On June 28, Billy Mays, the well-known pitchman for products including Oxiclean, Kaboom and Zorbeez, was found dead by his wife in his Florida home. He was 50.

Mays, along with pitchman Anthony Sullivan, cohosted the reality show Pitchmen on the Discovery Channel. During the series, which began in April 2009, the pair selected two products pitched to them at the beginning of the show. Each product was then field tested, and if it did well, Mays and Sullivan would create an infomercial for it.

There is no word yet on the fate of the series after Mays' death, the cause of which is not known at this time. Brian Dungan, a lieutenant with the Tampa Police Department, said there were no signs of foul play or evidence of a break-in. An autopsy will be completed by Monday afternoon.
