"mysterious"? The only mystery is whether the drugs in his system played a part in him crashing.

Sorry conspiracy theorists, there's no there there.

Suicide vs. accident?

Yeah, that's a legitimate question, he apparently was going to get dinged in an intervention by his family, maybe that was the tipping point. But the conspiracy theorists are convinced that his car was blown up by the CIA, stuff like that.

BTW, I know the stretch of street that his car crashed on, it's a speedway, there's accidents there on a pretty regular basis.
