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.

Jordan #18 you ignorant idiot! Heart disease isn't always self induced, it's hereditary. Maybe you should write a book about how perfect you are. He was a hard working guy - and a real human being, not just a tv spokesperson. He didn't overdose on heroine, he lived a normal AMERICAN lifestyle... and was living the AMERICAN dream how dare you say he was responsible for his own death! Are you his doctor? We're all dying everyday... one day closer to death. .. hope you are doing everything you can to keep yourself alive. Sounds like you have it all figured it all out... Can't wait till your book comes out Mr. Perfect.... to all the rest of you making jokes and saying negative things about a fellow human being, shame on you! You'll all get yours one day. You're just plain MEAN! RIP Billy and all my best to the Mays family and their friends and colleagues who knew Billy well.

Yelling like a retarded maniac for decades while at the same time trying to bilk people out of their money will probably do that to a guy. Good riddance.

Billy Mays here! I am the manager in file and computer department of BANK OF AFRICA, I got
your contact through international business inquiry as i was desperately
searching for a honest foreiner who will help me receive this abandoned
money in his account. [sic]

In my department i discovered a file of unclaimed fund of $12.250m US
dollars(TWELVE MILLION TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS).
In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along
with his entire family in plane crash 1998. [sic]

Billy Mays has made a living off scamming you for as long as he’s had that beard. Stop hiring this f*****g idiot, you morons.

When ever I see Billy Mays trying to sell something, I already know it doesn’t work.

90% of the gadgets advertised on TV, whether it’s Billy, Vince, or another douchebag, are crap. The same goes for all these get-rick-quick gurus and coaches who are spamming the s**t out of radio.

Wonder if the hard landing knocked a plaque loose that then totally plugged a major artery? The timing is a little suspicious. Bizarre that he had heart disease bad enough to cause sudden death, but it was not picked up on the pre-surgery physical he would have had to have before today's scheduled hip replacement. He looked the picture of health.

I feel sorry for his family, but it's hard to have much sympathy for the guy. His commercials were beyond grating, he made millions selling products promoted as 'clean' but were in fact loaded with synthetic chemicals, which no doubt affected his health as well (he probably ate nothing but frankenfoods as well.)

He was only fifty yet heading in for his THIRD hip replacement? Yup, that's a role model for ya.

KA-BOOM

#10, the reason why MJ's is taking longer is because they are waiting for his toxicology report. The toxicology report is what takes between 4-6 weeks to come back. They already had the preliminary results on Friday. The coronor said no signs of faul play but since there were some meds found in his body they have to wait for the toxicology report to come back to get a conclusive result.

Yep this sounds all too fishy about the heart disease and about to have his 3rd hip surgery.

The ceiling didn't come down. The flight attendants KNOW Billy didn't buckle-up.

I've hit my head on the ceiling in a plane with a loose seat belt while flying in rough turbulence.
Folks tighten that belt. Listen to the Flight Attendants. They tell you things for a reason...

Wonder if he had too many drugs in his system to relieve his headache?

How much did US Airways pay off the coroner for that result?

US Air could still have some liability. The heart attack could have been brought on by the trama of the flight. A lawyer might make a good case.

You people are absolutely disrepectful. Here you all are (except a few) making fun of this poor man who just lost his life. You know what? Do all of you really take your time to make fun of someone who just died? Seriously, its stupid and childish to see you all making fun of Billy Mays. He was just a spokesperson not the person who made the products. It's not his fault that maybe Oxiclean doesn't work. Bull crap. He was paid to say those things. If you get so annoyed by him why didn't you just mute the freaking television? He was most likely richer than you'll ever be so I suggest whoever wants to keep saying cruel things about Billy Mays needs to keep their mouth shut and go get a life.

RIP Billy Mays. Your in a much better place now.
