Atheist Advent: Washington Post Heir William W. Graham Shoots Himself Dead!

Atheist Shoots himself dead....

Washington Post heir, 69, shoots himself dead, echoing his father's own 1963 suicide, days before Meryl Streep movie about the family was released

The heir to the Washington Post fortune, William W. Graham, committed suicide last week, echoing his publisher father's death in 1963. Graham, a 69-year-old lawyer, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound last Wednesday, according to an obituary published in the Post. His father Phil, who was publisher of the newspaper for 17 years, killed himself back in 1963. Graham's mother Katharine then served as publisher for the next two decades. A Steven Spielberg film starring Meryl Streep as his mother, which is based on her time as head of the newspaper, was released on December 22 - just two days before his death. His death came six days after the film's premiere in Washington DC. Graham was a prominent lawyer at the Williams & Connolly firm in Washington DC in the 1970s before he moved to Los Angeles. He later taught trial law the University of California at Los Angeles. Source
