Died from a Heart Attack?

Grigori ("Grisha") Sargsyan died this morning of an apparent heart attack.
Why, you may ask yourself, is the name familiar?

At the very moment when Levon Ter Pertrossyan was addressing people and the troops in the square with appeal of soberness, he was blocked by police troops headed by Grisha Sargsyan, the head of guards of the acting president Kocharyan

There is much to be said, it seems.

But, let us distance ourselves from those who hate, disrespect, and destroy.
May he rest in peace.

Maybe I am naive but I do not see conspiracy in these things. I mean, these people have very poor diets and are ticking time bombs for a heart attack or a stroke.

Agreed Nazarian - the drinking smoking and rest of the lifestyle does seem to make a heart attack the most likely cause of his early death.

Some happenings, and coincidences, are just more interesting than others.

While the average Armenian has a poor diet, the elites in the government or the mafioso-business circles have horrendous diets. It is not surprising that soon after getting a position of control, the bureaucrats start to balloon.

The only exception that I can think of was Robert Kocharian who has remained fit and skinny.
