    Tremendously poor reporting here. Offering a salacious conspiracy theory without even knowing if he was married with kids? This kind of reporting has no credibility. Let me list a few ways someone could die in their car at 46. Maybe he was drinking somewhere and slept in the car and died of hypothermia. Maybe he had covid and no one knew and he passed away. Maybe he had a heart attack. The police aren’t commenting because it’s normal to have an autopsy performed to find out his cause of death for anyone at all who’s just died. You are hacks and need to stop the spread of misinformation. It’s disturbing to write articles like this!

      First of all thanks for sharing your opinion. He was found after a week while he was dead! As you mentioned there are many possibilities and a foul play is one of them!
      Second, we did not confirm anything we just talked about one of the possibilities which often occurred for celebrities.
      Third, we all prefer to hear more information about such important news from the police!

    It w scientologists that killed him just like jeremy blake and his girlfriend. That and he was a fan of opiates.

    1. USdayNEWS December 28, 2020

      Could you please explain more? So do you mean that he passed away as a result of drug use?

      1. Lillian January 3, 2021

        This is just speculation. I don’t know the circumstances. I wish i did. It seems odd for someone so young and well liked to just die. I feel bad for his family experiencing this loss as a bookend to such a shitty year. I only speculated about scientology because he was on that beck album as were jeremy blake.
