Ken Lay dies of a massive heart attack. The bastard.

Well, that certainly is one way to get out of going to jail:

In a statement, spokeswoman Kelly Kimberly said, “The Lays have a very large family with whom they need to communicate, and out of respect for the family we will release further details at a later time.”

A spokeswoman for Aspen Valley Hospital confirmed that Lay arrived at the hospital at 1:41 a.m. MT and was pronounced dead at 3:11 a.m. MT.

CNN affiliate KPRC in Houston said Lay was admitted to the hospital with a massive coronary.

In a statement, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s office said a coroner’s autopsy is pending and autopsy results will be available later this week.

Well at least this means we won’t have to put up with various jail house interviews with Barbara Walters over the coming years or Dateline stories on how he’d be putting his life back together once he got out. Yeah I know we still have to put up with that crap from Skilling, but at least the agony is cut in half now.

  1. Talk about justice for many Americans.  Now our tax dollars don’t have to go to supporting this asshole in prison.  Instead he had, hopefully, a painful death.  But I just wish he could have got his sentencing first.  Then when he finds out he has to spend the rest of his life in a federal-pound-me-in-the-ass prison, he has the massive heart attack.

  2. People like Lay and skilling don’t go to REAL prisons where the rest of us might go… no, Camp Cupcake awaited him. The biggest violation they would ever suffer in prison would be a random locker check.

    I can’t say I am happy that he is dead but I certainly wished he would have had to spend SOME time in prison reflecting on the enormous amount of misery he created by gaming the system and cooking the books. I guess if his god is just his section of hell will have rolling blackouts for the rest of eternity.

  3. Too bad Ken Lay didn’t have to suffer longer!  As for me, I need to see the body.  It wouldn’t surprise me at all that he’s still alive.  That his “death” was a ruse (probably with the assistance of good buddy George Dubyah) and that he’s been whisked out of the country to enjoy the good life somewhere else in the world.  These fuckers are capable of anything!

  4. I know it’s very wrong and uncharitable of me, but I was hoping Kenny-boy would get some quality time in a PMITA prison for all those people who lost their homes due to his fraud.

  5. A massive heart attack. The ultimate ‘get out of gaol free’ card. LOL

  6. Sexy Sadie sez: That was fast.

    ! – (eyes narrow) – what did you *do*, SS?  LOL

  7. what did you *do*, SS?

    Well, I didn’t think it would actually work

    Nah, I wouldn’t abuse my extraordinary supernatural powers on even Kenny-boy Lay—I’m a good little witch.  smile
