Grant Wahl, Dead in Qatar




Another journalist had died. Grant Wahl probably thought himself safer than most because he specialized in soccer. But he was confronted by the Qatar government (and then received death threats and was followed) for wearing a rainbow shirt in solidarity with the LGBQT+ community. Not long after, he suddenly fell ill while covering a soccer match and taken by paramedics to a hospital where he died. He was 48.

Wahl's brother Erik believes he was murdered.

You can read about it on the Lawyers, Guns &Money blog here. Or read the NBC News account, which does not report anything suspicious about the death here.
