Bomb Wrap-Up Stinks

Car explosion was suicide or accident, source says (The Tennesseean, 07/30/04)
"The Williamson County man who died in a massive car explosion last week in a parking lot at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center probably died either by suicide or by accident, a source close to the investigation said.

Since the July 20 blast, there has been no indication that anyone other than William Glen Young, 43, was responsible for the mysterious blast that took his life, the source said."
Ok, so the authorities (who presumably know more about this kind of thing than me) are convinced that this chap wasn't murdered. Well, I say it still stinks like yesterday's diapers.

Why was his car parked way out in the middle of a huge parking lot? What kind of accident could trigger such a massive explosion? I don't quite buy this, but that's ok because I understand the police can't release every lead they have.

Now that it doesn't seem to be terrorism, I'm not as concerned.

Meanwhile, I just thought this exchange was odd...
"They have not disclosed details of interviews with Young's wife. This week, a woman who identified herself as the mother of Young's wife would not comment when reached by telephone."
Ok, so obviously mom didn't phone them (why would she if she had no comment?) so the paper must have tracked her down. If they did track her down...why did they say "she identified herself as the mother of Young's wife, if they already knew who she was to track her down? That doesn't make sense. Ah well.
