HOUSTON — Investigative journalist Trent Seibert, who brought his skills to several major U.S. daily newspapers as well as to news websites he founded and led, has died. He was 47.

The Texas Monitor, a website he founded and led as its editor, reported Thursday that he was found dead at his home in Houston earlier this week. A police spokesman told the Houston Chronicle there were no signs of forced entry or foul play, and an autopsy has been performed to establish the cause of death.

Seibert worked at The Denver Post, The Tennessean in Nashville, the San Diego Union Tribune and KTRK-TV in Houston.
