The BBC and other media outlets are reporting the death earlier today of a man in Watford, reportedly Sean Hoare, the former News International reporter who alleged that Andy Coulson knew of the phone hacking at the News of the World. See for example, NoW 'whistleblower' Sean Hoare is found dead.
The death is being reported as "unexplained" but with no suspicious circumstances.
We are being led, I suspect, towards a conclusion of "suicide".
It's remarkable that another convenient "suicide" happens eight years to the day after the discovery of the body of Dr. David Kelly after his supposed "suicide".
Perhaps it's merely one of those strange coincidences that life throws up.
Perhaps it's not.
With the seeming death of Sean Hoare one source of evidence relating to alleged criminality by Andy Coulson and, potentially, others is seemingly removed.
Could anyone be so ruthless as to remove Sean Hoare from the scene?
