Hugo Chavez was the 64th president of Venezuela and a politician for many years before that, and he served as president for 14 years, until his death in March of 2013. The official story is that he died in a military hospital following a severe heart attack, but others have suggested that the United States government may have played a role — an accusation quickly and vehemently denied by the U.S. State Department.
Chavez was known for speaking his mind and stirring up controversy, which is one reason why people speculate about his death. His comments regarding the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010 were particularly direct; he claimed that the United States Navy induced the Haiti Earthquake using a weather weapon, accusing the United States of “playing God.” A Spanish newspaper quoted Chavez as saying that “the US Navy launched a weapon capable of inducing a powerful earthquake off the shore of Haiti. This time, it was only a drill, and the final target is destroying and taking over Iran.” (source)
