    If you guys frequent tech news sites, you know by now that Ian Murdock, creator of the Debian Linux distro, has died.

    One thing catches the eye at this time: how quickly all the info about him online is getting deleted. His Twitter, it seems that one blog post was deleted telling his story, and so on.

    According to his last tweets, he got roughed up by police. https://img.sauf.ca/pictures/2015-12-29/c12fc3b2278596da4a26edd4a41f3373.pdf

    Then he said he was gonna kill himself...which doesn't make any sense, since if you want justice, you want to live to see justice.

    Then on his suicide tweet he hashtaged this : #runnerkrysty67 If you search for this on Google you might find your results interesting - there is nothing about this name.

    Did Ian Murdock leave a dead man's hand? Is this hashtag a plea for help or a coded message that someone else was typing his Twitter for him? Did he really kill himself?

    Find out on the next episode of Barto CSI.

    Barto CSI reporting in for some rather dull news.

    https://twitter.com/runnerkristi67

    Is Ian Murdock's wife.

    Neonskull set me on the right path but pointing out I had mispelled one y. I might as well have mispelled both y's. Looking for the hashtag I found Ian's wife.

    In the meantime all of Twitter is trying runnerkrysty67 as a password on all of Ian's accounts....haha.

    Case closed.

    jokes aside, this is some sad news.

    on the plus side i learned that debian is actually deb+ian.

    i see someone archived the tweets though.

    it seems unbelievable that a man in his position would commit suicide really if he needed help he could have afforded some of the best.
