Good Morning!

So I read this yesterday and was a little surprised that no one mentioned anything about this yet here on ATS. As it goes, Aubrey McClendonm, the former Chesapeake Energy boss (major company side player in the oilfield) died in an "Accident" yesterday, the day after he was indicted for breaking federal antitrust laws.

The way he died was suspicious. Like a few recent big names, he died in an vehicle crash. Also, like a few recent big names... His vehicle burst into flames and pretty much incinerated the whole vehicle. ....and like before, it wasn't another vehicle hitting him. In this case, he ran directly into the side of an overpass. This makes me wonder if this had anything to do with someone else controlling his vehicle, just like it was suspected by 'conspiracy nuts' on previous occasions. Even though I haven't looked just yet, I'm guessing that this vehicle had the same computer setup that would allow someone to hack in and take control of the vehicle.

Is it possible that since he was indicted that he might spill the beans on someone else and so they had to shut him up? He was suspected of price fixing, and that requires other big players. This could be a HUGE issue if others are suspected and his potential sidekicks or even handlers needed to shut him up. Especially if those handlers had anything to do with the GOP and right now, it's a really bad time to have any mud slung in that direction.


Hmmmmmm?

Aubrey McClendon, a brash risk-taker who led Chesapeake Energy Corp to become one of the world's biggest natural gas producers, died in a single-car crash on Wednesday, a day after being charged with breaking federal antitrust laws, police said. He was 56.

The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday announced that McClendon had been indicted for allegedly colluding to rig bids for oil and gas acreage while he was at Chesapeake, a central player in the U.S. fracking revolution of the past decade. He denied the charges.

Police said they were investigating the cause of the crash, which occurred when McClendon was driving his 2013 Chevy Tahoe on a sparsely populated, two-lane road.

The crash occurred about 8 miles (13 km) from American Energy Partners, which McClendon had founded and where he was the chairman and chief executive. He was not wearing a seat belt.

After leaving Chesapeake, McClendon went on to start American Energy Partners and, with the help of private equity funds, made billions of dollars in bets on vast tracts of oil and gas land around the United States and Australia.

Tuesday's indictment followed a nearly four-year federal antitrust probe that began after a 2012 Reuters investigation found that Chesapeake had discussed with a rival how to suppress land lease prices in Michigan during a shale-drilling boom. Although the Michigan case was subsequently closed, investigators uncovered evidence of alleged bid-rigging in Oklahoma.

Could just be that he committed suicide too. or he got drunk because of all the chaos in his life and messed up.

Could also be a conspiracy. No telling what happened.
