(SeattlePI)   The coroner has completed the investigation into journalist's Michael Hasting's death and it turns out there is nothing to see here. And also he's a druggie. And also the FBI wasn't investigating him in the first place   ( seattlepi.com) divider line

Lsherm: They couldn't have released this information sooner? This is how conspiracy theories get a foothold.

Right, because as subby demonstrates, nothing squashes conspiracy theories faster than the spread of information about the deceased's drug use.

OhioUGrad: I admit I heard the conspiracy theories (and lots of them) long before I heard anything about drug abuse/addiction.

But who is to say the gubmint didn't make him inject/inhale/ingest those drugs then drive....huh, huh?

/the cremation thing bothered me, then I looked it up and saw it was on infowars and decided right then and there it was fake

Gyrfalcon: Except any firefighter or driver on the LA freeways can tell you it certainly IS possible for a car to burn like that

Yeah, but he was driving a 2013 Mercedes.  Have they ever seen a new Mercedes burn like that?  Besides, Mercedes makes great cars and Germans are great engineers.

The real question is what was Dick Van Dyke doing that someone wanted him dead and why didn't they succeed?

I think that they used Van Dyke as a secret agent to kill Hastings and then they had to off Van Dyke so that he could never tell anyone.  I know this because I read it on the internet but I can't give you a link because almost as soon as it was posted the whole website mysteriously disappeared.

And even though Dick Van Dyke survived he's too afraid to tell anyone now because they told him if he did his whole family would be killed and he's not willing to put his family at risk.

fusillade762: The crash occurred at about 4:20 a.m


Scholar4life: Smoked weed and crashed at 4:20? Very interesting...

Let's go back to the night of the crash and see what's at 4:20 in that oh-so-convenient video. Nope, no weed.

Lsherm: Investigators said Hastings had arrived with family from New York the day before the crash, and a brother was due to arrive in town that same morning to try to persuade him to go to detox. Investigators were told by family that after 14 years of being "sober," Hastings had started to use drugs again since his recent move from New York to California.

They couldn't have released this information sooner?  This is how conspiracy theories get a foothold.

No, conspiracy theories "get a foothold" because idiots say "Aha! He couldn't POSSIBLY have died in a fiery car crash all by himself! THEY must have killed him (in this spectacularly obvious and blatant way) to keep him quiet because!!! Let's not wait for any proof, let's run with it!"

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Peter von Nostrand: What's the conspiracy with this guy about again... He released JFK's sex tapes with Princess Di to the Wikileaks dude after tapping the head of the CIA's phone while setting fire to the Branch Davidian compound?

In Benghazi

Benghazi, of course. He draws a lot of water in Malibu as well
