It may very well be for the best. He wasn't going to be very popular amongst the genpop.

50-50 chance either: Suicide or acute stress-induced myocardial ischemia.

My guess is suicide.

sounds like heart attack.

No prison time, either. The man was probably carrying a very guilty conscience, too. Even if he didn't show it on the outside.

Nevertheless, I hope his family isn't harassed, etc.

Was this a scheduled item or what?

No, but he'll be able to rant and rave about how Karl Rove had him killed so he couldn't talk.

He now stands before a far more stringent judge, from who you can not appeal his verdict. May God Have Mercy On His soul.

While he was a very corrupt and sleazy golfing buddy of bill clinton, I would not wish death on him or any of his cronies. I sympathize with his family, who certainly do not deserve to be pilloried over his corrupt business dealings, and I'm sure they are in emotional pain right now.

Liberals are insane lemmings, so they will follow whatever crazy theory they are told to believe in. They remind me of the Outer Party Members in "1984," with DU as their Two Minute Hate media.

So does this mean the Family Limited Partnership is intact? His asset protection plan was supposedly perfect. We'll see if the estate is dismantled by the courts.

We are just 2 minutes away from the conspiracy Bush did it theories on DU.

And maybe two hours away from the Nancy Pelosi "I question the timing of this" statement and the demand for an investigation.

CNBC says "died", "massive coronary" and "passed away". I would not be at all shocked if the toxicology studies show something, but that's weeks away.

Not surprising if your self-worth is determined by riches. "The love of money is the root of all evil." There but for the grace of God...

How sad all the way around.

Sad for his family, sad for his many victims who now won't see the justice of Lay serving out his prison term, sad for a promising life wasted by blind greed and lack of conscience.

I was thinking the same exact thing.

Let's see how long it takes for the conspiracy theory nuts to get ahold of this and run wild with it.

He was guilty of a lot of things, but mostly of not minding the store and letting Fastow get away with pilfering the company. After reading The Smartest Guys in the Room, I'm convinced he never really believed that Enron wasn't a good, solid company. He believed his own hype and he paid for it big time. God bless his family.

He stole a heck of a lot of money from a heck of a lot of people, and his antics at the trial made it pretty clear that he wasn't even remotely the remorseful type. He was the type that gives capitalism a bad name in the minds of many people.

Hopefully he made his inner peace with God before he passed away.
