He had completed about half of an instrument training course and was not rated for flying in low visibility conditions.

Political murder. He was going to find out who killed his father and publish it in his magazine, and he was planning on running for the Senate or President--and he had a very good chance at winning either.
Another thing they don't tell you is that his wife was pregnant.

It was an accident. Graveyard spiral induced by not being proficient in near instrument conditions. I fly this area all the time and what he was doing was not safe for unskilled pilots. He lost his visual reference, didn't keep up with his instrument scan and dropped a wingtip. By the time he sensed something was wrong he attempted to pull-up before levelling his wings. This tightened his turn radius and he spiralled into the sea. It's a common trap and one instrument piloits are drilled on again and again. He didn't have that training.
