Autopsy Shows Billy Mays Had No Head Trauma

6/29/2009 12:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Mays autopsyThe Hillsborough County Medical Examiner just announced the results of Billy Mays' autopsy -- and said there was no connection between Billy's death and Saturday's rough aircraft landing.

Billy had admitted to suffering a blow to the head when the front tires of US Airways Flight 1421 blew upon landing -- but the doc said he found "no signs of internal or external head trauma."

Dr. Chrostowski said Billy most likely died from complications due to heart disease. He said the autopsy showed "hypertensive and arteriosclerotic disease of the heart" -- which is known to cause sudden death.

The doc said Billy -- who was scheduled to have his third hip replacement surgery today -- had prescriptions for tramadol and hydrocodone, but said Mays had no history of drug abuse and "the counts of remaining medication are correct."

The doc will announce the official cause of death once all test results are in.

Anytime this guy comes on tv, I either mute or flip the channel. I can't stand listening to him. I am sorry he is dead, but I am happy his commercials will eventually fade off and I never have to list to that obnoxious yelling ever again.

Billy was responsible for his own death. Maybe if he led a more healthy lifestyle then he wouldn't be dead at 50. Don't feel sorry for anyone who contributes to their own death.

I cant believe some of you people. You guys are so freaking cold hearted. He left behind a wife and 2 kids and all you can do is make fun of him. Show some compassion if you have any. You people make me sick. RIP Billy

its a better legacy than being a millionaire pitchman for crapolla

I wonder if the hard landing so scared him ( forget getting bonked on the head) that his already messed heart did not recover. I heard the front wheel collapsed, That would make my heart skip a beat.

I just watched Billy Mays on the Tonight Show with Conan, it's a tragedy and though it may have been related to his heart it just a damn shame. Billy was a great pitchman and one of our own, Great Pitchman (Salesmen) are born not made, he will be missed and my prayers are with his family.
