Billy Glide Didn’t Die From A Snakebite

As soon as the story went up there were some things that didn’t ring true to me.   First a rattlesnake bite isnt usually fatal  in an adult, it can be, but in general it is extremely painful with the poison creating violent symptoms including nausea, it’s unlikely anyone would sleep.

I also started hearing that the story wasn’t correct that Billy had died from a drug overdose, specifically GHB and alcohol but others may have been involved.

Billy had been on a downward spiral for a while.

It has been confirmed now that the cause of death was an overdose, it is unclear if it was intentional but it it is believed that it was not.

In the end it doesn’t matter much except that it changes the nature of his death and of the story, Billy was well liked and he will be missed.

It isnt unusual for aging male pornstars to fall into depression and substance abuse, one day you are on top of the business and in a few years you start to slide, and all too soon you are a once was.  You find that to people inside porn you are “getting too old” and to people outside porn you are damaged goods and sadly the support system inside porn usually involves substance abuse.

Rest In Peace Billy

    Feeling sad tonight for all of Billy’s family and friends. Sadness compounded by the recent loss of Jake Malone. Regardless of the circumstances, it’s a shame to lose people who contributed their talent and their energy to the industry.
