AP: James Von Brunn Has Died

According to the Associated Press, James Von Brunn died in a prison hospital. CBS News is also reporting the news. The accused Holocaust Museum shooter left behind a wealth of racism and conspiracy theories on various websites. The AP writes:

"A government official says the 89-year-old man accused of a deadly shooting at Washington's Holocaust museum has died in a prison hospital.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, says James von Brunn died at a federal complex in Butner, North Carolina.

Von Brunn had been awaiting trial for the killing of security guard Stephen T. Johns at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on June 10. Von Brunn had been wounded by return fire but survived."

WaPo says Von Brunn was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly before 1 p.m. Cause TBD.

    Don't be ridiculous, Noodlez. Dick Cheney lives on a diet of fresh human hearts, not 89-year-old ones.

    At least we'll be spared the fiasco of a trial in about 3 years. Good riddance to that scumbag.
