I wonder if he had a flu within the last month. If he had not been well known or rich we would not have known about his heart attack. It will be hard for people who are not morticians to spot a trend of this sort.

He was on that flight that experienced a front tire blowout last week. A ceiling tile fell on his ., but Billy said "It hit me pretty hard, but I have a hard .."

Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and now Billy Mays. They come in threes, it is said...

What a crude thing to say. He was out there trying to make a living just like all of us.

Wow! You're right - I forgot about Ed. Except maybe he can be discounted since he was in his 80's with bone cancer, so maybe it was expected?

I'm a brutally honest person, the man annoyed the hell out of me.

It's a shame, but, better him than me.

And his mighty puddy was complete trash.

Bless his heart I hope he went in peace. He seems like he was a good guy. I've seen him briefly once or twice as I don't really watch TV that much. I'm 57 I sure hope I reach 58. These are some special times we live in and I hope to live to see the coming shift to the fourth dimension.

If it was a hert attack, it is a trend, and it has been noticed for many years.

Maybe it was from all that annoying SCREAMING all the time.

At least I won't need to press the down volume button as much anymore.

If you go on google images and search for Billy Mays there are a lot of 'defaced' pictures of him.

Was he murdered? Maybe.

My sources have revealed that Vince hired a hitman to take Billy out. The slap chop commercial holds secret clues.

My husband said the exact same thing.

Yes, I feel sorry for his loved ones at this time however every single time one of his commercials came on we had to run like hell to turn the remote on mute.

God what a irratating voice.

The man was probably a very nice human being but his voice was just plain maddening.

and the commercials are all now jacked up to the point of making you go spastic.

May Mays rest in peace along with Farrah, Michael and Ed.

Pls elaborate for those of us that haven't quite "caught on" as this sounds like a conspiracy.

Starred for your keen awareness.

fyi: My husband had scarlet fever back when he was 9 in 1953.

In 2006 the doctors found his aeorta heart valve was leaking and it was due to his having scarlet fever back when he was 9.

Some illnesses leave a "calling card" and wreck "hidden havoc" upon the body long after the apparent illness has passed.

Good observation and questioning on your part.
