54. This thread reminds me of another story that transpired during George HW Bush's presidency.
There was a well-known and particularly tenacious bulldog investigative journalist (named Danny Casolaro) who was working on an in-depth, years long probe of a secret operation called Octopus. The gist of the story is that he was getting into some seriously dirty stuff that went to Ed Meese, Reagan's Atty General, and Poppy Bush, among others.

Casolaro was found dead in the bathtub of a West Virginia motel, allegedly a suicide. Interestingly enough, all of the papers and documents he had amassed as a result of his digging into this Octopus operation were gone.

Probably just coincidence. Right?
