News Of The World Whistle-Blower Found Dead

Sean Hoare, the phone-hacking whistle-blower in the News of the World case, has been found dead in Watford, England. The timing, only months after Hoare helped expose the hacking scandal that plagued the Murdoch-owned paper, is certainly suspect, but his death is currently classified as “unexplained” and police, as of now, do not believe foul play was involved. That said with the police’s role in the hacking scandal, is it wrong for me to find that suspicious too? Have I just watched too much Film Noir?
