McClendon died Wednesday after the sport utility vehicle he was driving crashed into a concrete bridge abutment and burst into flames.

The crash came a day after McClendon was indicted for allegedly conspiring to rig bids for oil and natural gas leases in northwest Oklahoma.

McClendon was a founder and CEO of Chesapeake Energy Corp. before stepping down in 2013 and founding American Energy Partners. He was also a part owner of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder.
