James Kim Found Dead

It is with regret that we must announce that James Kim, a senior editor at CNET, was found dead today at 12:03 PM Pacific by rescuers searching for him in a remote part of the Oregon wilderness, according to a CNN report. The editor, 35, had left the safety of his family's car in an attempt to find help and had left clothing strewn along his path as clues to his location. The cause of death has not been revealed at this time.

As fellow members of the technology news community, our sincere sympathies go out to James' wife Kati, daughters Penelope and Sabine, as well as all his coworkers at CNET. James died caring for his family and deserves a hero's commendation for his efforts.

    Sad to say, but...

    This story was very likely to have ended badly. That's especially true since leaving the safety of a car in a cold, inhospitable area is likely to get you in real trouble, and quickly.

    get the facts, commodus

    Is your self esteem so low that you need to criticize a dead man who went 11 days without food?

    The fact is, James Kim stayed in the car for 7 days while refusing food for his wife and daughters. After 7 days, he ventured out when all seemed hopeless for his family.

    In all estimation, James Kim was a much smarter man than you appear to be. I don't think he would be writing what you have written here. Understand what bad taste you have shown here. Please grow a soul!
