He died in a hospital in
Ivory Coast, where he was taken last week after suffering a stroke.
Announcing the death, President Taylor said there would be a full autopsy,
but did not explain why.

Vice President Enoch Dogolea
(1997-2000) was allegedly beaten to death by Taylor's security forces at the
President's farm. The allegations have never been proven.
The circumstances around Dogolea's death are worrisome, and indicate a now
too familiar pattern of fast deaths amongst Taylor's disciples because prior
to the announcement, the government had accused its members, along with its
security establishment, of receiving money from unnamed sources to overthrow
it by assassinating the president. Unconfirmed sources also say about 14
security men have been secretly executed and 40 others unaccounted for based
on the now too common and mundane coup allegations.
