Ex-NoW reporter Sean Hoare 'died of natural causes'
Source: BBC News

An inquest into the death of former News of the World showbusiness reporter Sean Hoare has found he died of natural causes.

Mr Hoare, 47, who claimed phone hacking was rife at the paper, was found dead at his home in Watford in July.

Hertfordshire Coroner Edward Thomas said Mr Hoare died after suffering alcoholic liver disease.

Just tragic that a man was driven to his death by the kind of dark shit Murdoch (R) and his International Republicon Cronies pull against decent people abroad and here in the US of A.

Plug ugly (R).

5. I still think it's a bullshit explaination
I will ALWAYS be suspicious of 'natural' deaths of whistleblowers when a major investigation is underway.

9. My thought as well...
though, in this case, there was an inquest. Perhaps this poor fellow just had his time (if so, it seems like he lived as if he knew he deserved it).
