Part Owner, Who Moved SuperSonics To OKC, Dies After Indictment

Aubrey McClendon, part owner of the OKC Thunder and former CEO of the Chesapeake Energy, was killed in a car crash that reports say was avoidable.

The Chevy Tahoe burst into flames as McClendon, at fast speed, hit an overpass without a seatbelt on. This comes a day after McClendon was indicted for conspiracy from 2007 to 2012 for rigging oil prices and natural gas in Oklahoma.

CNN Money reported that he has more than $1B in loans backed “by a personal stake in the company’s well”.

The 56-year old businessman was part of the team when Seattle SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma in 2008.
