Ken Lay Dead of "Heart Attack"

Terry's Comments:

Isn't this death convenient? If this was a movie we would all know why Mr. Lay expired, but this is real life. In real life people don't die just because they might be negotiating silence for a "get out of jail" card. . . Do they!

Enron founder Kenneth Lay dies at 64 AP - 19 minutes ago
HOUSTON - Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay, who was convicted of helping perpetuate one of the most sprawling business frauds in U.S. history, has died. He was 64. Nicknamed "Kenny Boy" by President Bush, Lay led Enron's meteoric rise from a staid natural gas pipeline company formed by a 1985 merger to an energy and trading conglomerate that reached No. 7 on the Fortune 500 in 2000 and claimed $101 billion in annual revenues.
