L.A. Times Sportswriter Dead
Mike Penner, aka Christine Daniels (November 28, 2009)
The journalist made international news in 2007 when he announced he was transsexual and then began penning his articles for the Los Angeles Times under the name Christine Daniels.
Colleagues at the Times say the suspected cause of death was suicide.
"He was one of the most talented writers I've ever worked with," said Times Sports Editor Mike James.
The journalist recently began writing under his Mike Penner byline again.
