    HOUSTON -- Former Enron Corp. chairman and founder Ken Lay died of a massive heart attack Tuesday, according to broadcast reports.

    Houston TV station KPRC and CNN both reported that Lay's death was confirmed Wednesday.

    Lay, 64, was admitted to the Aspen Valley Hospital overnight with a massive coronary, KPRC reported.

    Doctors said his heart simply "gave out" and the death was unexpected.


    Lay was found guilty on May 25 on six counts of conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud in a case born from one of the biggest business scandals in U.S. history.

    The verdict put the blame for the 2001 demise of the high-profile energy trader, once the nation's seventh-largest company, squarely on its top two executives. It came in the sixth day of deliberations following a trial that lasted nearly four months.

    In a separate, non-jury bank fraud trial, U.S. District Judge Sim Lake found Lay guilty of bank fraud and making false statements to banks related to his personal banking.

    He was to be sentenced on Oct. 23. Lay's charges carried a maximum penalty of 45 years in prison for the corporate trial and 120 years in the personal banking trial.

    Former Enron CEO Jeff Skilling, 52, was found guilty with Lay in the fraud trial. He was convicted of 19 of the 28 counts against him.

    Not that I want to see anyone die, but cheating people out of the millions like he did would cause my heart to simply give out also.

    Your cut-and-paste accidentally omitted the last line, which I'll include below:

    "After definitely not faking his own death, according to the coroner with the Rolex, Mr. Lay most certainly did not flee the country under an assumed name."

    Makes all the routine posts.

    Hard to feel sad over this one. Hopefully he made peace with his maker over the terrible things he did.

    Hopefully Mr Lay has sufficient answers for his final judgement.
