Reports: Enron's Ken Lay Dies Of Massive Heart Attack

POSTED: 10:04 am EDT July 5, 2006


HOUSTON -- Former Enron Corp. chairman Ken Lay died of a massive heart attack, according to broadcast reports.

Houston TV station KPRC and CNN both reported that Lay's death was confirmed Wednesday.

Lay, 64, was admitted to the Aspen Valley Hospital overnight with a massive coronary, according to KPRC.

Doctors said his heart simply "gave out" and the death was unexpected.

Lay was found guilty on May 25 on six counts of conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud in a case born from one of the biggest business scandals in U.S. history.

He was to be sentenced on Sept. 11.

perhaps he's now facing REAL justice.
In any case, he's dead and, as all dead people, we should show some respects..

My friend called me with the conspiracy theory - that Lay's either off on some island or Cheney had him rubbed out. Not sure if she heard that on Air America or not - I do know she said J.Garofalo called in - that may have been her conspiracy theory.

If Skilling kicks between now and October, we got ourselves a conspiracy

A ripe set of facts for the conspiracy theorists out there! I one thinks there is more out there to this story, perhaps we should look at the beneficiaries of Ken Lay’s death. Does the government benefit? No, the criminal conviction is likely void as Lay died before the matter was complete (even though convicted, he did not go in for sentencing – thus the case was incomplete and likely will be dismissed). This means the government will be unable to collect criminal fines levied against Lay. Does Jeffrey Skilling benefit? Not much as he is already convicted and awaiting his own sentencing. A last minute attempt to shift blame to Lay at the sentencing stage will be transparent. Does Lay’s family benefit? Tough question, but despite Ken’s death, the Lay family will be spared the criminal fines levied against Ken. What they will face, however, are civil cases which can be pursued against the estate.

Do you really believe that?

God didn't take any action, God is not vengeful or vindictive. Ken Lay used his own free will to do what he did, and maybe the stress of the consequences of that contributed to his early death. Sad situation all around. Greed often leads to sadness and misery.

I dont reckon he's dead!

He travelled over to mexico under the stars of night in a truck. He had a face lift and his face was sown onto a dead homeless man. He now is called Senor Arriba and has a coffee stand on the beack in alcopulco.

Mark my words.
