12/16: Update about the memorial service
12/15/2004: A Memorial Service for Gary Webb, the late investigative journalist, will be held in Sacramento on December 18th. Webb died as a result of two gunshot wounds to the head. A coroner determined that the cause of death was suicide, largely due to the presence of a suicide note. Some wondered if Webb died of "Potential Witness Syndrome." However, his ex-wife said Tuesday that Webb had been distraught for some time over his inability to get a job at another major newspaper. 'The way he was acting it would be hard for me to believe it was anything but suicide.' Webb had reportedly paid for his own cremation earlier in the year. Apparently, he had sold his house last week, because he could no longer afford the mortgage, and was also upset that his motorcycle had been stolen. (More) Memorial Webpage for Gary Webb
