The Hillsborough County Florida, Medical Examiner has released the results of an autopsy performed on TV pitchman, Billy Mays this morning and concluded that Mays, 50, showed no signs of head trauma.
Dr. Vernard Adams said Mays most likely died from complications due to heart disease and not the bump on the head he received during a rough landing on a US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Tampa. The plane’s tires burst as it landed landing and Mays was hit in the head by falling debris.
“All of a sudden as we hit, you know, it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping,” Mays said after the flight. “It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.”
Mays had prescriptions for Tramadol and hydrocodone for hip pain. However, Mays had no history of drug abuse. Adams went on to say…”the counts of remaining medication are correct.”
Mays’ wife, Deborah, found him in bed at their home yesterday morning and called 911 when she couldn’t revive him.
Mays had recently teamed up with fellow pitchman Anthony Sullivan for the Discovery Channel reality show ‘Pitchmen.’
