Aubrey McClendon Has Left The Building
Aubrey McClendon — one of the most ruthless of the fracking barons and former CEO of Chesapeake Energy — has been killed in a one-car accident. When it came to purchasing local politicians, cheating and threatening landowners every way imaginable, Chesapeake Energy had no rivals.
Now, before you get your Schadenfreude on — Aubrey McClendon had just been indicted on federal anti-trust charges the previous day.
Was his one-car accident a suicide? Did he pull a Kenneth Lay and fake his own death? Perhaps some of his fellow conspirators were afraid McClendon might roll over on them in return for a lighter sentence, and arranged for him to have an “accident.”
If that's the case, who are these people and what information are they so desperate to conceal?
