Was Michael Hastings murdered for attempting to expose government crimes?

Three weeks ago Michael Hastings was killed in a spectacular car crash, so fiery that it is rarely, if ever, seen outside a cinema. Hastings had written a profile of Gen Stanley McChrystal for Rolling Stone in 2010, the fallout of which resulted in the General retiring, disgraced. Hours before the crash Hastings had contacted his lawyers about a new, explosive and damaging journalistic piece exposing criminal activity by high ranking government employees. The police and fire departments, as well as the Medical Examiner, have refused to release any internal reports. In this video, San Diego-based reporter Kimberly Dvorak discuses the Michael Hastings crash. She mentions the unusual intensity of the fire and the unusual location of the engine relative to the body of the car. This looks like a political murder, perhaps as payback and warning to other whistleblowers.
