Deep seated skepticism about the circumstances surrounding the death of well-known journalist Michael Hastings has been simmering since news of his early morning car accident broke this past week. ShortFormBlog has been making note of such claims of FBI investigation (which the FBI has publicly denied) of Hastings over at their blog, so follow along. NY Mag has also been updating its post on the public debate and ongoing news about the crash.
The above is an Instagram photo post of the site of Hastings’ crash, taken by LA based photographer Christopher Patey. The skepticism, as well as the mourning, clearly continues, with some not inconsiderable passion involved.
Hastings’ friends and coworkers have confirmed the award-winning, hard-hitting journalist’s own fears of investigation, although no real mainstream allegations of foul play seem to have surfaced at this point. The LAPD has stated that while the case is ongoing, it suspects no foul play.
