RIP: Billy Mays 1958 - 2009

Television "direct-response advertisement salesperson" Billy Mays, who founded his career by screaming at the top of his lungs hocking products like Orange Glo and Oxy Clean died Sunday morning in his home in Florida. He was 50.
Police called to the scene said that there were no signs of forced entry and that they do not suspect foul play.

It hasnt been officially stated yet, but there is suspicious evidence of May's death and an incident he had on a flight the day before.

This information comes from Wikipedia:

Mays was aboard US Airways Flight 1241 from Philadelphia to Tampa that blew out its front tires as it landed at Tampa International Airport on June 27, the day before his death. None of the 138 passengers and five crew members were reported to be seriously injured immediately following the incident, but several passengers reported having bumps and bruises from falling objects. Mays told a local Tampa television station that some of the objects "hit me on the head, but I got a hard head." It is unclear whether Mays's death was related to the incident, but his wife did note that he did not feel well when he went to bed the night he died.

I'm sure we will be hearing about this in the news on Monday. At least I hope so, because if I have to watch one more minute on Michael Jackson, I'm going to scream.
