First it was Ed MacMahon, then Farrah Fawcett, then the biggest one of them all Michael Jackson. Now television infomercial pitchman Billy Mays is said to be dead.

New York Daily News:

Spirited TV pitchman Billy Mays was found dead at his Tampa home earlier this morning, police said.

Mays, 50, lent his trademark booming voice to infomercials for products like OxiClean and Orange Glo.

His wife, Deborah Mays, found him at their home Sunday morning, the Associated Press reported. Tampa police said there were no signs of a break in or foul play.

An autopsy will be done by Monday afternoon to determine the cause of death.
