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.
