The story was that she had accidentally contaminated herself while stealing from the company.

My theory is that she was purposely contaminating herself during the end there. so to martyr herself for the cause.
realistically, it wouldn't make much sense for the plant or the AEC to coverup the mishandling of dangerous material.... by poisoning someone with that very dangerous material. it would only prove and empower her cause.
There are crooks all thru big biz and the government, for the most part it's all about money, only a fool would not realize this.

Anyways, I believe Mel Gibson made a move about this a few years ago, "Edge of Darkness" I think it was called.... it was a good movie, and it basically followed the Silkwood story to a T.
In the movie I believe Mel's character (who played her father, investigating her mysterious death) finds that the food, and milk in her refigerator had been poisoned.
Eventually he tracks down the owners of the Chem company and gets them to admit that if she had gone public they would have lost a ton of money and been exposed to other countries like China for their cutting edge manipulation of radioactive materialedit on 23-12-2011 by WhiteDevil013 because: (no reason given)
One of the problems was that durning this period of time, the material accountabilty for several of these private operations was extremely bad and the looses were high. In the case for the NUMEC in Apollo, Pa. highly enriched uranium operations it is a certainty that their fissile materials ended up being stolen by Israel and this was highly confirmed to be the case because the isotopic signature of uranium in Israel exactly matched that for the Portsmouth Gasseous Diffusion plant in Ohio that supplied the Apollo, Pa. NUMEC system. Some highly suggest that Karen Silkwood stumbled upon a far bigger problem than just worker contamination, but one where poor material accountabilty and high material losses were used to conceal plutonium being smuggled into Israel out of Kerr-McGee.
