Content of the article:
Journalist Michael Hastings body was reportedly cremated by Los Angeles authorities against his familys wishes, destroying possible evidence of his mysterious death in a car accident on June 18.
Hastings was killed when his Mercedes crashed into a tree at a high speed and exploded.
Only hours earlier, Hastings sent an email to friends at Buzzfeed.com stating that he was onto a big story and had to go off the radar for a bit. He also warned his colleagues that they might be questioned about him by authorities.
A close family friend did confirm that Michaels body was sent home in an urn, meaning he was cremated and it wasnt the request of the family... in fact the family wanted Michaels body to go home,” stated San Diego 6 reporter Kimberly Dvorak on Sunday (video below).
According to Dvorak, Hastings spoke with an unidentified attorney before his death who has all the details about the story Hastings was working on when he died.
Hastings had not told his wife about the story because he said he wanted to protect her from knowing anything so if anything were to happen to him nothing could happen to her, said Dvorak.
“Despite the LAPD’s categorization of the Hasting fatal accident as a ‘no [evidence of] foul play,’ LAPD continues to ignore FOIA [CPRA in Calif.] requests made by San Diego 6 News for the police report, 9/11 call, autopsy, bomb squad and toxicology reports, or make the Mercedes available for inspection which only fuels conjecture,” added Dvorak.
Dvorak also claimed that she has been threatened for investigating Hastings death.
For reasons unknown, the LAPD and Los Angeles firefighters were told not to talk to the media about Hastings death.
Former White House counter-terrorism expert Richard Clarke stated in June that Hastings’ car crash was consistent with a car cyber attack,” in which an automobile is actually controlled by a third party electronically.
thanks for posting the body of the article! I did not know how :(
so glad Hastings told some one about what he was working on before he was killed. Hopefully That person can remain safe and unknown.
Any dead lawyers pop up recently?
Holy cow check this out -and it seems to be legit reporting.

Something is just not right. Government does NOT have the authority to cremate a private citizens body.
Tin Hat : was it really him ?

Who was Hastings actual legal next of kin?
I love the inference that the City of Los Angeles and its employees, by following standard procedure and not blabbing the details of an ongoing investigation to a moron reporter, are therefore providing dispositive proof of a conspiracy.
Despite denials by the Feds, specifly the FBI , the comment was made that along with emergency personell at the scene ,
were some FBI agents , apparently who just happened to be in the area. ( AT 4:30 AM , in the morning ?..coffee ? )
This case gets curiouser and curiouser ...
