Real World Horror #1

Suicide or Homicide?

The English tabloid "News of the World" (owned by Rupert Murdoch) has been involved in a giant scandal involving hacking telephones. The man who tipped the world off to their illegal practices was Sean Hoare. The Guardian reported that he "told both that Andy Coulson, the NOTW editor who went to work for Prime 
Minister David Cameron as his communications head, was not only aware of the hacking activities, but personally directed Hoare to engage in those activities. He told the BBC that hacking was widespread in the newspaper industry."

Hoare was found dead today in his home outside of London. It is thought to be suicide as of right now. The answer: He meddled with the primal forces of nature.

  1. Being jobless makes some people do some crazy things. :( I'm going to miss the News of the World. The Sunday magazine was great as a buffer between my lap and my scorching hot dinner plate.
