OKC Thunder Co-Owner
Oklahoma City Police say suicide has NOT been ruled out in the fiery car crash that killed OKC Thunder co-owner Aubrey McClendon … TMZ Sports has learned.
As we reported … McClendon died when his car smashed into a bridge at an incredible high rate of speed Wednesday morning … hours after he was indicted on a federal conspiracy charge that carries up to a 10 year prison sentence.
We spoke with OKC Police Dept Captain Paco Balderrama who told us …
cops are working on several possible theories that led to his death — ranging from suicide to a medical episode behind the wheel.
“Anything is possible,” Capt.
Balderrama said … “At this point we just don’t know.”
Cops say McClendon was NOT wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash — and he made no attempt to slow down before impact.
We spoke with a rep for the coroner’s office who tells us an autopsy will be completed Thursday.
