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.

I bet US Airways is breathing a big sigh of relief. 50 is awfully young to die of heart disease though. Strange his doctors didn't catch it.

#46 Macabre - SIMMER DOWN. People will be people, and the First Amendment is still alive and well last time I looked. This guy DID barge into people's living rooms with his voice. And you could never get to the remote fast enough. If you don't like their venting, tough. Get off TMZ. Go for a walk or something.

who gives a shit    

A lot of you should be ashamed of the stuff you are writing. He died, he has a wife and kids. Have some respect. Would you want people talking about you like that when you die? I think not!!!! If you don't have anything good to say then don't say anything. And yeah, U.S. Airways sure did bit the bullet!!

You're not supposed to mix those two medications, either...They may want to look into that...IF he was taking both at the same time...

As someone who has 2 patents, I sure wish I had a pitchman like Billy Mays. He was a great voice for the American Inventor. Hundreds of people now live the American dream thanks to him. Too bad all the hate on this site is written by people who never had an original concept in their tiny useless hate-filled brains. It's amazing how quickly some judge, while never looking at their own failures in life. OOOOH, i can rip apart a dead man on a comment board, but i still live in mommy's basement.... And to those touting 1st amendment rights, yes we all have them, but it doesn't mean that you're less of a douche.

#57 vivi libero o muori: What you posted is ignorant. Freedom of speech pertains to the GOVERNMENT and the PEOPLE, not a CORPORATION and the PEOPLE.

Time Warner people could come in here and wipe out any posts they want, they own this site and what people post here is not protected under the 1st Amendment.

I am not even a lawyer and learned this in elementary school.

Rest in Peace Billy! This was just a normal guy that made a living sellign product that done what they said they did. Was he loud sure but he was #1 for a reason. People liked him and bought from him. I bought the duel saw from him and WOW that saw cuts everything and anything.. You people should really watch Pitchmen. It show that Billy is just a cool guy and a hard worker period.

Will miss you Billy.
