Conspiracy theory: ENRON's Ken Lay death faked

Ken Lay died last night. You remember: he's the maggot who made off with million$ while the company was headed down the tubes .. and all the while he was assuring employees and investors "There's nothing to wory about. Every thing looks beautiful. I promise. Buy more stock. Hurry ..." .. so he could sell off his worthless stock at an attractive price.

I don't think he's really dead. I think it's just another ENRON-esque hoax .. just like his entire company turned out to be (largest bankruptcy in corporate history). I mean, it would be par for the ENRON course.

He was found guilty of fraud and conspiracy, and supposed to spend the rest of his life in prison (where he belongs). So he had nothing to lose.

I saw the movie: ENRON: Smartest Guys in the Room last year. What an eye opener. Made me sick. Unbelievable greed. I mean, how many yachts can you water ski behind?

And come to think of it, what's a convicted felon doing in Aspen anyway? Shouldn't he be behind bars, where convicts belong?

continued

He's still got plenty of money. You really don't think he didn't stash away a small fortune in offshore accounts while he was running ENRON? If not, you underestimate him.

That would be easy. They were cooking the books like crazy. That's already been proved. Any time anyone wanted to scrutinize their business, they were told to get lost.

And he had major political connections, too, so it shouldn't be too difficult for him to pull off a disappearing act. I mean, what more do you need?

If nothing else, GWB is loyal to his supporters, and Ken Lay was one of George's biggest supporters. I think he would have his boys take care of "Kenny Boy".

If I were gonna fake my death, I'd head out to some remote place (like the mountains of Colorado, for example), and do it in the wee morning hours (such as 1 or 2 AM), when hospital staffs were at a minimum ...

... and of course, I'd have to do it *before* I arrived at prison, cuz then it would be too late (too much scrutiny). I'd bet dollars to donuts that he wants to be cremated.

In other words .. somebody needs to stick a fork in that fraudster's cadaver, and see if he's really done. (I volunteer.) Californians in particular, fell victim to ENRON's price manipulations. Just wanna make sure justice doesn't fall victim to the same shenanigans we did.

I know this sounds like another conspiracy theory, but remember, Lay & his cohorts have already been *convicted* of conspiracy. Sooo, homie obviously knows how to play that game.

Call me a Doubting Thomas, but I just don't buy the heart attack story. He doesn't seem like a heart-attack kind of guy, does he? I mean, if he were really gonna have a heart attack, he woulda had one long ago. Of course, I could be wrong.

Knowing how he was cooking the books, he obviously had plenty of opportunity to have a coronary. It just seems a little too convenient, wouldn't you agree?

I bet the family has a private memorial service at some undisclosed location (where no press is invited). Doesn't Lay own a private island somewhere? He's probably there now, drinking a Mai Tai, reading a newspaper.

Somebody on Wikipedia claimed he committed suicide. Now *that's* something I could actually believe. He was a big church guy, and that usually entails some degree of guilt. But the more likely motive would be despair.

Update: Seems I'm not the only one who thinks the he faked his death. See here: Reuters and Telegraph.
