Medical examiner says heart disease, not head injury, more likely as Billy Mays cause of death

Posted By on Mon, Jun 29, 2009 at 12:13 PM

The Hillsborough medical examiner told a group of reporters outside his Temple Terrace offices that he found no evidence of trauma or head injury that would have caused the sudden death of TV pitchman Billy Mays. Instead, he found evidence of heart disease, including an enlarged left ventricle and an oversized heart weighing in excess of 500 grams, that would be consistent with a sudden death even in somebody as young as 50, as Mays was.

The coroner is withholding any final cause of death until further tests, including toxicology tests.
