Kenneth Lay Dies of Heart Attack
Kenneth Lay, 64, died suddenly of a heart attack while on vacation in Aspen, Colorado. Lay, the founder of Enron Corp., had been convicted of fraud and conspiracy on May 25 and was scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 23.
Pastor Steve Wende of Houston's First United Methodist Church, said Lay seemed healthy when he attended services in Houston on Sunday, and even believed God may have had a purpose for him in prison.
"He was very much at peace with his future, he had a perspective on what had happened, he even bore no ill will for the jury or all of the people who might want to say terrible things about him," Wende said.
