This is quite an anti-climax to the Enron scandal. Given the kind of mental agony he must have been through, it is not surprising that he died of a heart attack. In fact, it is surprising that he didn’t have a heart attack sooner given all the stress he must have been under! Considering the loses people faced because of Enron he probably hardly had any sympathisers and understandably so.
I dare say that at 64 with a likely huge sentence ahead of him, his death due to natural causes was his best possible exit strategy. In short, he supposedly duped the world with Enron and just when it got time to nail him once and for all, he “bailed out” for ever!
Mr. Lay was supposedly close to president Bush and family. Given Bush’s direct line to God, makes one wonder if there was an update from above on this issue.
