I dunno. Carradine's way would be more fun.

True. Did they ever announce if he "finished" before he passed on?

Jesus Christ, man! There's just some things you don't talk about in public!

Of course. He died right before he died.

Yeah I just watched all of pitchmen. And like others have said, this is the one death in the recent string that I've actually felt. It's weird. But the guy clearly had a sense of humor about his job, was nice to his fans, and at the top of his game, sad to see that kind of person go.

Thread necro!

Autopsy: Cocaine a factor in Billy Mays' death

Quote:
The fact that toxicology tests detected only breakdown products of cocaine, not the drug itself, led Chrostowski to conclude that Mays had used cocaine "in the few days prior to death but not immediately prior to death."

[...]



The autopsy also found low concentrations of ethyl alcohol "consistent with social consumption of a few beverages" as well as the narcotic drugs hydrocodone, oxycodone and tramadol. Mays had prescriptions for the drugs -- which were found in therapeutic or subtherapeutic concentrations -- to ease hip pain.


In addition, the tests found evidence of two tranquilizers -- alprazolam (Xanax) and diazepam (Valium) -- which are commonly prescribed for a variety of ailments, including anxiety and insomnia. Both drugs were determined to be in therapeutic or subtherapeutic concentrations.
That's a hell of a cocktail. Painkillers, tranqs, booze, and coke. No wonder he had a bloody heart attack.

Well, the cocaine at least explains the yelling.

And he wasn't even abusing the prescription drugs. Follow all directions and warnings from your doctor and pharmacist! And don't do coke.
