Sugar Land, Texas - There are new moves this weekend to exhume the remains of former Enron wiz kid J Clifford 'Cliff' Baxter who died in a reported two-bullet/rat shot 'suicide' at a Sugar Land car lot in 2002.

Lawyers acting for a Texas coroner's court that examined Baxter's RIP are applying to dig up the remains of the bankrupted energy giant's former chief strategy officer.

A high-profile tip-off has alleged Baxter may have already been dead before the gun actually went off, possibly due to ingesting poison.

The death occurred soon after Baxter's resignation from the top Enron post for which he'd been headhunted due to an impressive track record of debt-busting skills.

"He was just the kinda guy who'd have been able to solve the Obama Administration's own debt debacle, the so-called 'fiscal cliff'," a former colleague commented today.

Co-workers had recalled Baxter 'going totally ballistic' after discovering dodgy off-balance sheet financial 'vehicles' designed to keep billions of dollars of debt from Enron Corpse [sic] audits.

A short while later he was found dead in the back seat of his brand new $200,000 Mercedes Convertible.

He was 43.

A tip-off from 'concerned sources' has alleged Baxter may have been already dead before the official bullets business.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
