Fake News asshole dead at 38.
Unfortunately, it was probably just a drug overdose, and not being punched in the face repeatedly.

Using official-sounding domain names like CNN.co.de and Microsoftsite.com, Horner's stories swerved from over-the-top jokes to political firebombs, namely the super-viral "Donald Trump Protester Speaks Out: 'I Was Paid $3,500 To Protest Trump's Rally."

His stories followed a simple formula: Use a famous name, include a real photo and make at least the first few sentences read like a standard news story. That way, his stories would have credibility before readers began to doubt.

If he became suddenly wealthy (at least compared to his prior position) it takes a special kind of person to avoid the hookers & blow lifestyle.  Now he's just a statistic.
