Reading the car data record, he was traveling 78 mph at impact.  Down from 88 to 90 mph a short time before the crash.

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

Authorities could not identify McClendon's body at the scene of the crash but used dental records to get an identification. Investigators found his name in the back of a pair of pants to provide an initial identification.

They attributed that to the soft soil on the side of the road in the presser yesterday.

Well, it sucks that he felt backed into the kind of corner that would lead him down that path - especially for his family!!  Sucks just as bad that he backed himself into the kind of corner that would lead him down that path.

Looks like McClendon's dealings may take another company down as well.

Quote
The terms outlined in the April 2013 pitch, obtained by Bloomberg, were so favorable to McClendon, however, that most investors turned him down, according to people familiar with the response.

After some haggling, one of the few that accepted was Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Energy & Minerals Group, the firm led by Raymond, son of former Exxon Mobil Chief Executive Officer Lee Raymond.

Though there’s still time to salvage the bets, much — if not all — of the estimated $2.6 billion that an EMG fund put into a half-dozen enterprises set up by McClendon’s American Energy Partners LP could be lost, according to Carin Dehne-Kiley, a Standard & Poor’s credit analyst who tracks three of the four biggest ventures. Side bets by EMG investors added hundreds of millions of dollars to that figure, said two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because the information is confidential. That, too, is at risk.

“There’s a good chance these guys will default in the next 12 months,” barring an oil-price rebound, Dehne-Kiley said of the EMG-backed American Energy Partners ventures that she tracks.

Guess they don't  have to worry that life insurance policy won't pay off now that it's ruled an "accident".

Oklahoma has a two year exclusion on suicide in policies written here, wonder if he’d taken out a rather large one not long before the “accident”.  Considering how far in debt he was reputed to be, that may have been his only option to keep his family afloat.  It’s a shame he didn’t see any other way out.

I never realized what a fire plug he was at 63” tall and 194# according to the autopsy.

As a commercial driver I see lots of drivers displaying suicidal behaviour everyday. Speeding, driving one handed with a phone to their ear, swerving lanes without signals, ignorant of driving rules, eating, smoking and under the influence. I do not find it curious that a stressed oil man under indictment might have lost control of his vehicle because of any of these behaviors. Its also just as likely that he momentarily yielded to that stress, but there is no evidence to indicate it was suicide. Its weird to see so much enmity and conspiracy over this guy. Rich guy exposed as subject to the same greed and incompetence as the general population. Nothing new here.

From the same Oklahoma ME's office making national news about funding and missed accreditation?
