James Kim Dead

Authorities confirmed in a press conference they had found the body of CNET editor James Kim at 12:03pm today in the Big Windy Creek basin. Kim and his family were stranded for 7 days due to losing their way in a snow storm. James left to try and find help at 7:45am on Saturday saying he would be back later that afternoon. He never returned. Authorities were noticably emotional during the conference. The Kim family has made a direct request that the media NOT contact them.

Truly this is a sad day for those in the tech world. My thoughts,prayers, and condolences are with Kati and the children. James Kim was 35 years old.
