So that right there doesn't seem like something that he would be doing and he had a lot of friends and family that cared about and -- of a good life to live there's no way he would be.
Acting erratic like that and driving that out of control.
What what do you think is going on -- -- because we've we've talked about this a couple of times just because it's getting so much attention on the Internet.

To hours later darting.
This is not a coincidence like that things -- -- up there's a lot of questions he'd be answered.
My contacted by email Mercedes today -- and if it's normal for their cars -- blow up.
To that extent inferred if the engines fly out on a normal basis.

CIA but from what you said earlier last lord of the things he said as it was going to be the biggest story -- The you -- you know popular area activists that -- say they've made the tin foil hat people think the government killed this journalist.

And so that just leaves a lot of questions and a lot of -- the need to be.
Brought up and answered I'm not gonna speculate and say I think anything because that's is gonna make me look crazy.
Well no one wants that we just want answers and it was interesting because former former counterterrorism.
Official Richard Clarke -- in an interview to the Huffington Post saying look he said it is possible.
Four intelligence agencies to seize control of a car remotely that's what he claims and didn't do what they want to it he went on to say.
Reportedly my rule is always been you don't knock down a conspiracy theory until you can prove.
