Billy Glide Dies: Porn Star Killed By Snakebite After Refusing To Go To Hospital

Billy Glide is dead, and a longtime friend said the veteran porn star was bitten by a snake and refused to seek medical attention.

Friend and fellow porn star Alana Evans said she heard the news of Billy’s death through another friend, who said the 43-year-old performer was bitten by a snake while helping a friend move.

Evans said she was devastated by the news.

“I’ve known Billy my entire career,” Evans told AVN. “He was part of the reason I got into the business. To hear this kind of news is just so shocking and sad.”

The death of Billy Glide appeared to be a tragic but preventable accident. Evans said the person he was helping move had a pet rattlesnake.

“I don’t know if the snake got out, or if something else happened or what, but Billy was bitten by the snake,” Evans said.
