BREAKING: Look Who Was Just Reported Dead At 36 Years of Age!
James Dolan, the creator of the Secure Drop Whistleblowing tool has reportedly died.
RT reported: Former marine, James Dolan, who along with colleague Aaron Swartz created a secure system for communication between journalists and sources in possession of sensitive information or documents, has died. He was 36.
The circumstances of Dolan’s death are not yet known, but former colleagues speculate he may have committed suicide.
“We don’t know why James took his own life; we do know, however, he long suffered from PTSD from his time serving in the Marines during the Iraq War. It was an experience that affected him in multiple ways,” wrote Trevor Timm, executive director of the Freedom of Press Foundation, on Tuesday. Dolan worked for the foundation until 2015.
“He often cited the Iraq War as his inspiration for wanting to help journalists and whistleblowers; it made him realize governments needed to be much more transparent and accountable.”
