This story just keeps taking more new and interesting turns:
In another twist in the News Of The World scandal, a former reporter for the tabloid who initially alleged that editor Andy Coulson knew about the practice of phone hacking by his staff, was reportedly found dead Monday.
The Guardian reports that though police wouldn't confirm the identity of the man found dead, it is believed to be Sean Hoare, formerly of NOTW and The Sun, who worked under Coulson but was fired for alcohol and drug problems in 2005. According to the police report, "the death is currently being treated as unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious. Police investigations into this incident are ongoing."
Bob Cesca adds this to the news that police aren't treating the death as "suspicious":
Whenever there’s a major conspiracy, and someone directly involved mysteriously dies, it’s always suspicious.
Which is a very true statement, but given the growing evidence against some high profile public officials in London, they are probably doing everything they can to keep this story turned down. It's quickly going to get to the point that Parliament has to intervene to get to the bottom of it.
