America demands answers as a former executive takes his own life
25 - 30 Jan:
On 25 January, Clifford Baxter, Enron's former vice chairman and chief strategy officer, committed suicide.
In her later testimony to Congress, Sherron Watkins said that Mr Baxter had feared the worst at the heart of the company. He had "complained mightily" to Mr Skilling about the partnership schemes and where they were taking the company.
At the White House, Vice President Dick Cheney refused on principle to disclose details of confidential meetings he held with Enron during the energy policy review.
The month ended with a new interim chief executive arriving at Enron to establish what could be salvaged from the ashes.
