The News of the World cellphone-hacking and police corruption scandal has claimed its first fatality. The AP reported today that Sean Hoare, the former News of the World and Sun reporter who leaked information regarding the tabloid’s widespread use of cellphone hacking to the press, has been found dead at his home in Watford, England. Police said they do not consider Hoare’s death to be suspicious.

Hoare worked as a reporter under Andy Coulson, former News of the World editor and communications chief to Prime Minister David Cameron, who was the first official from the paper to be arrested during the investigation.

    “Police said they do not consider Hoare’s death to be suspicious.” This, of course, is the same police that was on NOTW’s payroll!
