Several sites are reporting that Wim Duisenberg was found dead in his pool at home in SE France. Reuters are quoting that he died following cardiac problems, and that no criminality is being considered. The majority of other sources are more reserved (but Reuters appears to be the most contemperaneous).
Wim Duisenberg, the former head of the European Central Bank, has been found dead in a pool at his villa in south-east France, French police say.

The former Dutch finance minister was the ECB's first president, and oversaw the introduction of the single European currency, the euro.

So, is the death of the former head of the European Central bank, just a simple [tragic] case of an elderly bloke drowning in his pool, or something more significant?

I'm going with the former, but with the current climate there is much that could be made of the death of such a significant figure in the European Project - the negative response to the EU constitution in parts of Europe, the recent Italian position on the Euro, concerns over an emerging European Federal superstate, the somewhat controversial [historical] activities of his wife, not to mention the role of Europe in the whole NWO/Bildenburg thing ...

On the other hand, the bloke was 70 years old, and had left what must have been a pretty stressful post in October 2003 ...
