    Cocaine linked to Billy Mays death

    Cocaine played a role in the death of television pitchman Billy Mays, a Florida autopsy report says.

    An earlier autopsy showed that Mays, 50, died of a heart attack in his sleep on June 28. His wife had found him unresponsive at their condo in Tampa.

    A release Friday from the Hillsborough County medical examiner's office said Mays had used cocaine in the days before his death.

    The report said that although Mays died from heart disease, cocaine use was a contributing cause of death.

    Mays became a U.S. pop-culture icon with his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I disagree with his drug use if that is true, but I don't think you need to kick the man when he's down and post that picture of him or the way your going about posting.
    He has done some good and let's remember him for that and let's not forget he has left behind a family and kids who will not be raised by their father.

    It's not so much of kicking the guy when he's down as "Hey, you brought this upon yourself dude. And you caused your children to be brought up fatherless now."

    So the man wasn't perfect. He's a human being.

    When the Vince from Shamwow thread regarding him hitting a hooker cause she bit his lip was on TW nobody said shit about dragging his name through the mud.

    No no no, they have feelings. What they don't have is a gag reflex.
