Pitchman, Billy Mays, 50, was found dead in his home today. Famous for his “OxiClean” commercials, Mays was instantly identifiable, with his black beard and his ability to project his voice.

Mays wife found him “unresponsive” inside their Tampa Florida home. Police are saying there is no sign of forced entry. An autopsy will be conducted Monday to determine cause of death.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Mays family at this time of loss.
