While no official cause of death has been pronounced, it is widely speculated that Mays' death was the direct result of being struck in the head with an object after a harsh airplane landing the night before his passing.
At the time of his death, Mays was being treated for chronic hip problems and although the reports seem a bit salacious, the levels of pain killers in his system were said to be "therapeutic" levels and not elevated.
In addition to his infomercials, which made him a household name, Mays was the co-star of the Discovery Channel reality TV series Pitchmen, which followed Mays and fellow advertising star Anthony Sullivan (Sully).
Mays is one of the noblest of the grasses that thrive in our climate, almost indispensable to our gardens, with its fine appearance either isolated or associated with other fine-leaved plants.
Initially, authorities believed that Mays died of a heart attack, but now, an autopsy report is revealing that there may have been a bunch of other contributing factors to Mays' death.
