Hacker who turned Manning in to Federal Bureau of Investigation dies at 37

Adrian Lamo hacker who reported Chelsea Manning to FBI dies aged 37

His father, Mario Lamo, announced Lamo's death in a Facebook group on Friday. "A bright mind and compassionate soul is gone, he was my beloved son", he wrote. The circumstances of Lamo's death are unknown, but a coroner in Sedgwick County, Kansas, reportedly confirmed the news.

Lamo turned Bradley Manning in to the United States military after the transgender soldier, who now identifies as a woman named Chelsea, admitted leaking the confidential military documents.

Lamo, who had been previously convicted of illegally hacking into the New York Times' website, was 37. Authorities provided no cause of death, but said it did not appear suspicious.

Fox News reports that Adrian Lamo, the hacker that turned Chelsea Manning in to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and gained notoriety after hacking into both Microsoft and the New York Times, has been found dead in Kansas.

Google began rolling out this innovative feature first to its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagship smartphones late a year ago . While not flawless , it's definitely useful at times, but so far iPhone and iPad users have been left out of luck.

The former hacker was known for infiltrating systems like Microsoft, Yahoo and The New York Times. He was sentenced to six months of home detention, along with 2 years of probation and a $60,000 fine. In an internet chat, Manning told Lamo that she had downloaded and burned classified files to a disk.

In online messages, Manning, then named Bradley, confided in Lamo, discussing top-secret military material Manning had passed on to Wikileaks. President Barack Obama commuted her sentence and she was released from military prison in May 2017 after serving seven years of a 35-year sentence.

On January 17, 2017, President Barack Obama commuted Manning's sentence to almost seven years of confinement.

Lamo said he acted out of a sense of "duty", but later expressed some regret for the decision, although he stood by it in later interviews. Since her release, Manning has put her hat in the ring for a U.S. Senate seat in Maryland. "The decision was not one I chose to make, but was thrust upon me".
