(Newser) – Another insider is crying foul play in the death of Gary Coleman. Ex-manager Dion Mial, who is also the executor of Coleman’s 1999 will, tells Radar he “wholeheartedly believes” that “there are criminal intentions relative to Gary’s death,” and goes on to imply ex-wife Shannon Price has something to do with it. “There is nothing covert about her behavior and how she has handled this,” he says.

“The picture that Shannon took in the hospital is much worse than people can see,” he adds. The Globe published that picture, in which Coleman is shown in his hospital bed and Price leans over him, staring into the camera. (The Globe preview also includes an investigator's assertion that Coleman was murdered). Price and Mial are also at odds over how to handle Coleman’s ashes, and Mial recently caught Price on camera removing documents from Coleman’s home.
