Oklahoma Oil Executive Died of Smoke Inhalation

No Law and Order type mystery here. Look like oil executive Tony Viele
died of smoke inhalation:
Oklahoma City police have for now closed their investigation into the death of oil executive Tony Viele — four months after his badly burned body was found inside his car.

A medical examiner's report obtained today states that Viele, 56, died of smoke inhalation. The report also states that Viele's blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit at the time of his death.

But the manner of death remains unknown, a medical examiner's spokeswoman said. That means it is unknown whether the death was an accident, suicide or homicide.

No clever quips, no Law and Order ka-chung type noise and cut to commercial. Just a sad ending to what was likely a sad story.
