From the Associated Press 9:46 AM PDT, June 28, 2009 Billy Mays was found dead this morning in his Tampa, Florida home.

He is said to have passed away in his sleep and there were no signs of foul play.

May was found by his wife, Deborah Mays early Sunday morning and an autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of death.Billy was best known for starring in several Infomercials products such as OxiClean, Kaboom and Orange Glo.

Millions of viewers recognized him from his blue shirt, bearded face and bright smile.

Mays had also recently been added as a co-host, along with Anthony Sullivan, to the series "Pitchmen" on the Discovery Channel.A strange twist to this story is that Billy Mays was a passenger on a US Airways flight that was forced to make an emergency landing on Saturday.

TMZ released the following information: "Billy Mays was aboard US Airways Flight 1241 flying from Philadelphia, which landed roughly when the front tire blew out as it touched down.

After the flight, Billy told FOX 13 in Tampa that something struck him in the head -- here's Billy's actual quote":"All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping.

It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head." "US Airways spokesman Jim Olson said that while some passengers reported a few bumps and bruises, no one was seriously injured," reported E! Online."Discovery Channel spokeswoman Elizabeth Hillman released a statement Sunday extending sympathy to the Mays family," said the Los Angeles Times.

"Everyone that knows him was aware of his larger-than-life personality, generosity and warmth," Hillman's statement said.

"Billy was a pioneer in his field and helped many people fulfill their dreams.

He will be greatly missed as a loyal and compassionate friend".
