The only way to fake a death is when there's no body to be found.

Or someone else's body burned beyond recognition. Just trying to start the inevitable conspiracy theory.

More on 40 mph....even without seat belts, the would likely be survivable even without seat belts just due to air bags.  Painful, but survivable...

40 mph frontal impact is like falling off a 5 story building - inflating an airbag on the ground at the last moment would certainly make it "survivable," but statistically I'm not sure your odds are better than 50/50. It sure would suck.

Per the conspiracy theory - DNA and dental records are easy to confirm. Add in wedding rings, cell phone signals, etc. Weak conspiracy theory.

No, but it does leave open sabotage (i.e. stuck throttle, cut brake lines, drugged) theories which would be great fodder for any number of true crime shows.

Here is an assortment of 40 mph crashes.  His car definitely going faster!  Seems like a lot of fire, too, for some reason... Was that a GM vehicle??

Tahoe.  And it was burning CNG.  The initial fire was likely CNG burning off the line then the fuel tank eventually blew.

According to the OKCPD, the Tahoe’s black box says 88 MPH 5 seconds prior to impact.  It also shows the brakes were “tapped” but he made no attempt to jam on the brakes.  Sounds like he might have been having second thoughts up to the end.
