He turned up expired in a D.C. hotel.

Some of you speculated that although the guy was only 57, that it was a heart attack, that Tom was overreacting in alleging malefaction by the Russkies. For example, one of youse theorized that, “Those guys drink like champions and smoke like chimneys. The picture of health, they are not.”

Not so fast, bub. The DC police have told Shane Harris that the guy died from blunt force trauma to the head, sides and extremities. He beat himself to death?
