As you’ve undoubtedly heard, legendary author Tom Clancy has died. He was just 66 years old. While an illness is said to be the official cause of death, that hasn’t stopped the internet from throwing around alternative speculation.
Could Tom Clancy have been murdered by people within the federal government? One theory goes that the author was too good at predicting events and had become a threat to the nation. This man predicted everything from 9/11 to the Bin Laden raid with razor-like accuracy. To silence him, the feds had him killed — and they did so during the shutdown of the government so that as few people as possible could potentially ruin the plot … so says this theory.
Or, could he have committed suicide? Maybe he utilized his amazing speculative ability and saw something disastrous coming. Thus, in order to avoid a more painful demise, he decided to bow out gracefully now.
Personally, I believe the official word that his health failed. Some say it’s fishy that this illness took him so quickly — but that happens all the time, unfortunately.
Regardless of the manner, I hope you rest in peace, Tom Clancy.
