Ken Lay dies

This is very strange. Convicted Enron exec Ken Lay has apparently died. I can't get to the article because it is behind the NY Times firewall but the link is here.

Enron Founder Kenneth Lay Reported to Be Dead
Published: July 5, 2006

Kenneth L. Lay, who was convicted of fraud and conspiracy for his part in Enron's collapse, has died of a heart attack, a Houston television station reported.

Not to be a conspirasy theorist but this just a little too convenient. 20 bucks sez he was to cooperate for a reduced sentence. Not that he wouldn't have gotten a presidential pardon...
