As the International Business Times notes, “some of the details surrounding the story [of Hastings’ death] read like a poorly-written political thriller.”

News of reporter and writer Michael Hastings’ death at the age of only 33 has shaken the journalism community across the nation, as well as fans of the writer’s hard-hitting reporting.
And now, less than a day after the BuzzFeed and Rolling Stone reporter was killed in a fiery car crash, conspiracy theorists are speculating that there is more than meets the eye over Hasting’s demise.
Twitter, Facebook, and sharing site Reddit were abuzz Wednesday, with some users commenting that it was suspicious that Hastings, who famously brought down U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal in a Rolling Stone cover story, died while in the middle of covering several hot-button topics like monitoring by the National Security Agency and the CIA.
