Former U.N. President John Ashe died last week.
Many are wondering whether or not foul play was involved.
The New York Post’s Page Six reported that after Ashe was found dead Wednesday, the U.N. claimed he died from a heart attack.
Local police officers in Dobbs Ferry, New York, later disputed that claim, saying instead that he died from a workout accident that crushed his throat.
Adding to the mystery surrounding Ashe’s death was the fact that he was slated to be in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, from whom he reportedly received over $1 billion in donations during his term as president of the U.N. General Assembly.
According to an unidentified source who spoke with Page Six, prosecutors intended to use the latter fact to link Ashe directly to Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton, with whom he could be seen schmoozing in the picture below.
“It would have been very embarrassing,” the source added. “His death was conveniently timed.”
