By  | 

The attorney for Kenneth Lay says the convicted founder of the Enron Corporation has died in Aspen.

He was 64.

The cause of death this morning is said to be a heart attack.

Lay and former Enron chief Jeffrey Skilling were found guilty of defrauding investors and employees in the months before the energy company plummeted into bankruptcy protection in December of 2001.
