Anyone have an estimate on how much he stole?

I'd guess somewhere between several hundred and a few thousand BTC.

We've been following it while BetMoose was in development - it didn't really look like a theft; the 1-owner just disappeared and some users actually managed to withdraw their funds using links and queries within the URL (check last few pages of this thread I think). So many actually did manage to withdraw while the site was still active but I guess he was paying monthly for it so 2 months later the page went blank and now the coins are lost forever (presumably). So yeah, CoinJedi may have gotten sick or died, would be the most plausible explanation here, otherwise he wouldn't have allowed any withdrawals and would've done something more similar to the situation seen at Mt.Gox

ah crap, bitcoin devs die like flies these days. Why do people jump to these conclusions that lightly? I hope my family would let users of my project know if I passed away.

Yeah it's really unfortunate. Lots of people in the world die daily so it's important not to trust one man shops. Not because they're not trustworthy but because that natural risk is there.

people "naturally" die only once in about 80 years and for the average young techie the chances should be much lower than 1/80 to die in a certain year.
Hmm, thinking about it, maybe terminally ill people tend to go for big goals like leaving a heritage?
