After The Death of Jeffery Epstein, It’s Time We Revisit Ken Lay

During the first six years of the George W. Bush administration, one of the most talked about CEOs was Enron’s Ken Lay. In the 2004 film Fahrenheit 9/11, Micheal Moore makes sure to note that Lay was the biggest donater to George W. Bush during the 2000 Presidential Election. In her 2003 book Bushwhacked, then-popular liberal commentator Molly Ivins talked about Enron a number of times, even naming Chapter 11 “The United States of Enron.”

What made this worse is the entire scandal facing Enron more or less being fake. To make a long story short, Enron made up how much they were making in profits in order to get loans they couldn’t pay back, among other things.

On 5/25/2006, the jury found Lay and many others guilty. Lay was sentenced to 45 years in federal prison starting on 10/23/2006. However, Lay chose to have a little vacation in Colorado before then.

On 7/5/2006, Kenneth Lay died. According to the official story, he died of a heart attack. While the average age of a fatal heart attack is 66 and Lay was 64, I can’t help but find it odd that someone would just so happen to die in between being sentenced and starting to serve 45 years in federal prison.

The similarities of these two men is unbelievable. They were both powerful men who committed a crime that would cause people to give them — I’ll be nice and say a hard time in prison.

Fair is fair, and an autopsy did confirm that Ken Lay’s heart attack was the result of Heart Disease. After all, tons of people die from heart disease every single year. However, most of them are not mega-millionaires. In 2001, Enron fifth place on the Fortune 500 list.

At the time of that list, Enron was said to have had $139 Billion worth of profit. If Lay even saw 1% of that, he would have been worth over $100 Million. Is that really not enough to afford open-heart surgery or medication? For God sake, while we were suppose to believe Lay had a heart attack the vice-president had previous had four of them.

What If Lay Committed Suicide and Epstein Had A Heart Attack?

Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one’s own death.-Wikipedia

Okay, this argument is a bit of a semantics one, but I still feel it should be made: Under this definition, giving yourself a heart attack is suicide. Is that a message we are even allowed to talk about? No, because then we get labeled conspiracy theorists.

I should note I’m not saying he didn’t die. I have no way of knowing if that’s true or not, neither do you. Most of us were not in the room with Ken Lay at the time of his death, nor did either of us talk to him and ask “Hey, any plans of faking your death or would you prefer to kill yourself intentionally?”

Epstein is the perfect time to reopen this case and actually hold an investigation not on how he died, but on why he died.
