Tyler James Johnson, a Caltech graduate student who fled the U.S. after authorities identified him as an alleged conspirator in a case involving arson attacks at several San Gabriel Valley car dealerships six years ago, has died.
He was 30. According to an obituary posted on the website of the Michigan-based Staffan-Mitchell Funeral Home, Johnson was killed from a fall due to an avalanche on Dec. 26 during a solo expedition in the Corsican mountains of France.
Johnson became a fugitive after being named as a co-conspirator in the August 2003 firebombing of eight sport-utility vehicles at a West Covina auto dealership and another SUV parked on a residential street in Monrovia.
William Jensen Cottrell, then 24 and a doctoral candidate in physics, implicated Johnson in the bombing rampage, alleging that Johnson and another conspirator threw the Molotov cocktails that damaged or destroyed the cars.

It may be presumptuous of me but I get a distinct impression (reading between the lines) that his glamorous exile was well bankrolled by the parental units.
Something of an Ayers lite, if you will.
Sounds like a good way to fake your death.
Revenge of the Chevrolet Avalanche.
As Howie Carr would say: “Is Ted in the house?”
Mother Nature suffering menopause? Or does she just have a really ironic sense of humor?
Fighting fire with snow——he may need that snow for where he may be going next!
I thought it sounded like a faked death at first but then I read this in the article and now I'm pretty sure he probably faked his death and is a complete IDIOT as well. Of course, irony is probably the most likely winner here.
