    I don't think this is a d_b. The guy's changed his name since the attack.
    It was natural causes.

    I believe this is the fat guy who wanted to work for the CIA.

    Is there any truth to the rumor that as he lay dying, he was crying out "Why me? Why me? Why?"

    I guess heaven needed a crowbar.
     
  6. His doctor said it was natural causes. May want to wait for the autopsy before you state it as fact.

    Why??????????? Why him? He's the attacker to be named later. He was Shawn Eckardt and changed his name.

    Natural causes at 40, that sounds like karma.

    Sadly, I had the same thought. Now I can't get that damn sound out of my head. I can't even watch that clip with the way Kerrigan was crying.

    Side note...

    I worked in Portland for a year, around '99 or so. It's Harding's hometown.

    The other people in the newsroom were absolutely astonished to hear I believed that sweet little Tonya was in on the Kerrigan attack. They all very much believed that she was just a poor, misunderstood victim of the bad men around her. Apparently that's a widely held belief in the city.

    Portland is an odd city.
