Autopsy: Cocaine Contributed to Mays' Death

Other News Articles About Billy Mays:

I'm sorry for the family's loss, but it is possible they could be in denial. These news articles report that the toxicology tests also showed hydrocodone, oxycodone, tramadol, alprazolam (xanax), and diazepam (valium). You don't have to be a medical expert to know that these drugs are all "downers." It's not known just how long he was on all these medications. If he were on these drugs during any of his work and travel, especially filming the commercials, then it would not be hard to believe that he was also on something else like cocaine. He is so hyper in those commercials! But maybe that was from something else, like too much caffeine. Maybe.

A couple of these news articles described him as energetic and hyper-energetic. His widow mentions that he had a hectic nature and pace during the past ten months of exhaustive travel. So, how did he keep up that pace? She also said she might hire and independent expert to review the autopsy findings. Might?

Don't forget, he lived in Tampa! All you have to do is google 'Tampa cocaine problem' and you might be shocked to find out that this city has a major cocaine problem, including crack cocaine.

I don't think toxicology tests are wrong about these things. Often times, family and friends won't know about some one's drug use until after their death. And if they did know, they sure don't want to admit it. I realize the family wishes that this entire matter were private, but when you are a high profile person that is a bit unrealistic.

I always suspect drug use when I see people of his energy level. It just is not normal. I'm sorry for his family.

Billy Mays was something else... but he should have known better.
It's unfortunate what happened with him, but he wasn't the first and won't be the last.

I often wondered if he was "on something" the way he was so over the top. He was kind of an institution, though, and I will miss him.

So ... within a few weeks of each other it's Billy Mays and Michael Jackson, and people around them are claiming they didn't know!?

I guess, as they say, "denial is not just a river in Egypt".

@Larry, I too lways suspect drug use, when someone is so hyper (or as my Mom would say "hopped up.)" I have seen it first hand, so it is easy for me to recognize.

Also, my reference to Tampa came about from knowing so many in Tampa with a cocaine problem. There's an old saying "Go to Florida on vacation, leave on probation."

@Rocky, thank you! I love bloghob and recommend it to anyone wanting to continue learning about blogging and wants some blogging tips. is a very resourceful blog.

@Jim, Billy Mays sure got our attention! No doubt, he wasn't the first and won't be the last. It's too bad.

@Jo, I wondered the same thing. I just saw one of his commercials and I wish they would pull them.

Great quote about the river in Egypt!
