Two young Bitcoin pioneers under the age of 30 died mysteriously in unrelated incidents, during a turbulent time in the world of crypto-currencies

After researching the situation further, we learned that just a few weeks ago, with very little media attention, 27 year old Mikhail Sindeyev, a popular Bitcoin coder passed away suddenly as well.
While Radtke’s death was suspiciously ruled a suicide with no additional explanation, Sindeyev’s cause of death is supposedly a stroke, an extremely rare occurrence for someone his age, if that is in fact the truth.
His department at MSU in Russia made the following post:
“Mikhail Sindeyev, researcher of our lab, has died February 14, 2014 from stroke at 27. He was one of the most talented graduates of our laboratory and active participant of many research projects. In May 2013 he successfully defended his PhD thesis “Research and developement of video matting algorithms”. Our sincere condolenses to his parents. We will deeply miss him.”
According to Crypto Currency News, Sindeyev was a Namecoin and Huntercoin developer and continually redefined what we thought was possible with a blockchain. Namecoin and Huntercoin are two examples of altcoins that are leading true innovation in altcoins.
Both of these deaths are raising suspicions of foul play because of the turmoil that has been recently taking place in the world of Bitcoin.
Despite the explanations given behind these deaths, there has been no conclusive evidence released to back up these claims.
