THE SPELL IS BROKEN: Flight 93, The Truth About How Q Patriots Saved America From Cult 93's Kill Shot [part 3]

2020.09.28 01:39 GreatAwakening888 THE SPELL IS BROKEN: Flight 93, The Truth About How Q Patriots Saved America From Cult 93's Kill Shot [part 3]

For those who have been following Trump's comms closely, you are well aware of his usage of The Phoenix Principle, which is how he takes his enemy's weapons from [them], transforms [them], and then uses it against [them]. The Phoenix Principle, represented symbolically and metaphysically via numbers, is not only about reversing [their] negatively charged numbers (e.g. reversing 93 to 39). That is phase one. Phase two is about 'flipping' the number. To tell us that Cult 93 has been completely defeated, the completed Phoenix Principle designation of 93 reversed and flipped is '36' (see graphic HERE).
There are a lot of theories about Flight 93, and what really happened. Some claim there were no people aboard and the backstories fabricated, others claim there were people aboard. And others claim there were government officials who had chartered it since so few passengers were aboard a large 757.
The 'official' numbers are: 33 'passengers' + 7 'crew' = 40, but there were 4 'hijackers' + 33 'passengers' = 37 = HELL = HEX, and all together 33 + 4 + 7 = 44 = KILL. Some claim it was headed to the Capitol Dome, others say the White House. Symbolically that would have been logical from [their] perspective, but the 'attacks' were also about opening portals, which can be done via Satanic rituals like Crowley did, or via highly explosive, nuclear-level disturbances in the physical plane of Earth because it disrupts or 'tears' the dimensional barrier. I have no idea which theories are correct, but if I am decoding the comms correctly, Maestro Trump gives us an astonishing account of what Cult 93 actually intended for Flight 93 and how American Patriots prevented [their] ultimate kill-shot attempt.
As we decode these messages, it can be helpful to keep the screenshot of the post we are decoding in an adjacent tab or separate window. Conversely, scroll down to the end of each puzzle-piece section to see the post and decode process side-by-side. However, the slides do not have all of the information contained here in the text, so best to refer to both for the full pictures.
At 10:56a, (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 10:50a Tweet) Maestro Trump provides the first of five clips from his speech at the Flight 93 Memorial Park. It was posted 194 minutes after the previous puzzle piece (194 = SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH = ENEMY OF HUMANITY); or 3 hours and 14 minutes (see Q314 screenshot HERE). Q314 Be the autists we know you are. It's about the BREAK. Seem relevant? BREAK = 37 = HEX. Do you see it? Confirmation that this is all about 'breaking' the September Eleventh hex on humanity.
The next thing to observe is the timestamp of 0:36 seconds, which represents not only the reversal of 93, but also the flipping/defeating, i.e. The Phoenix Principle (revisit the image HERE).
While the 'official' story is that Flight 93 was poised to attack the Capitol Building or The White House, Maestro Trump is seemingly telling us otherwise, that it was headed for the nuclear power plant at Three Mile Island in Harrisburg, PA, which seems to support this excerpt HERE. Flight 93 was meant to be Cult 93's epitomizing symbol, the one that would perform the ultimate 'kill shot'. The Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant had a nearly catastrophic reactor meltdown in 1979 (screenshot excerpt HERE), making it 'weakened' and 'prime' for Cult 93's nuclear disaster aims.
Flight 93 to San Francisco was scheduled to take off at 8:00a, but was purposely held for 42 minutes to coincide with the 'perfect' arrangement of timing/numbers encoded in the attack. This hex was actually started/initiated (at least the latter stages) in August/September 1924 with Aleister Crowley's Satanic ritual conception of Barbara Pierce (Bush). 77 years later, Cult 93's 'great work' / spell / hex to 'break' the human spiritual and genetic connection with CHRIST (= 77), was manifested. Flight 91 was the next flight to San Francisco (excerpt HERE), scheduled to depart at 9:20a (92 = TREASON), but 'never got off the ground'. 91 = GOD WINS, which was [their] attempt to say 93 (= CONQUER) defeated 91, i.e. that Cult 93 conquered God by keeping humans and justice 'grounded'.
Capital letters of Trump's retweet: NNW = 51 = ROME = ELITE = DEMON = NUKE = SAVED = ADAM EVE = RISE. The 40 is relevant as well, 40 = SAT(satellite) = I AM Q = I AM BACK. 51 + 40 = 91 = GOD WINS.
There are several relevant Q drops, and they are necessary to complete the big picture, but the most relevant is Q1050 Think Nuke stranglehold.
The 'official' story, the one that Cult 93 had prepared for [their] treasonous media partners, was that Flight 93 radio lost radio communication at 10:03 => 103 = SATELLITE; crashed at 10:06 => 106 = NUCLEAR PP (power plant) = HIDDEN ENEMY = KILL SHOT. This implies that Cult 93 was steering Flight 93 via satellite, intending to crash it into a nuclear power plant to create a nuclear disaster.
The 40 foot concrete walls erected to represent the 40 who died (screenshot HERE) were named by Cult 93, the WALL OF NAMES = 121 = HARRISBURG = ANTICHRIST= BLOOD SACRIFICE; which confirms that Flight 93 was headed for the nuclear power plant at Three Mile Island in Harrisburg, PA. Interestingly, Trump has stated that he got the 'inspiration' for The Wall from the walls erected at the Wall Of Names (screenshot of WaPo headline HERE). In typical Maestro Trump fashion, he does not merely destroy his enemies and [their] weapons, but repurposes, rebuilds, transforms, uses against [them] and revolutionizes for good rather than evil. Talk about 5D trolling of [them] at its finest! HA HA HA!
(summarizing graphic with a further detailed breakdown, related Q posts, and decoded message HERE)
The watch worth remembering strikes again!

At 10:57a (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 10:52a Tweet) Maestro Trump thanks the family members of the '40' who died in Flight 93. The first thing to observe is the video duration of 0:37. HPM (high-powered microwaves) = 37, confirming the decode of the previous tweet implying RFW (radio frequency waves and/or high powered microwaves) were used by The Patriots to 'bring down' Flight 93. How do we know this is what the 0:37 duration is pointing us to? Capital letters of the tweet: TFTA = 47 = RFW (radio frequency weapons) = MOS (mossad) = DOOM = A HERO = SAVE = GHIDRA (the actual entity Ghidra and/or representative of the NSA via the NSA's Ghidra reverse-engineering open source software).
Add the '93' from the tweet, (47 + 93) = 140 = PATRIOTISM = JUST IN TIME = RECONFIGURE DNA = THE BASE CODE OF LIFE = GOD FREQUENCY.
The most relevant related Q drop is Q1052 Your trust & faith in us is enough. You elected us to do the heavy lifting. Enjoy the show. BIRTH of a NEW NATION. NEW WORLD. Q
The other relevant Q drop is from Maestro Trump's retweet time of 10:57a, which connects to Q3457 If you look close enough you might see…. Q (screenshot HERE). While there is a reflection on the watch, 'If look close enough you might see....' has double meaning, implying to decode the filename. Q3457 is a reposting of Q3456 with the watch worth remembering, the date of the 19th, time of 4:49, and filename D2tSyy7W0AAjGeC equalling 143 = GROUND ZERO = NINETY THREE = GEORGE SOROS (Y family) = FEDERAL RESERVE = SON OF LUCIFER = ARCHANGEL LUCIFER = THE PUNISHER. This connects to Maestro Trump's previous retweet at 10:56a with the same watch, to confirm the relevance of the watch worth remembering and its connection to imminent justice for Cult 93 members.
In previous decodes I speculated the remaining watches, the 19th and 27th, would possibly come to fruition in August since the dates are on weekends in September, but it would now seem October 19th and October 27th are the days to 'watch'. My guess is Flynn will be free on the 27th of October, and a big surprise will occur on the 19th!
(summarizing graphic and decoded message HERE)

Again at 10:57a (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 10:55a Tweet) Maestro Trump re-emphasizes for a third time the relevance of Q 3456/Q3457, i.e. the watch worth remembering, aka justice for Cult 93's crimes against humanity. Trump also directly re-addresses Cult 93's fourth target, which his previous two RT's seem to reveal was the nuclear power plant on Three Mile Island outside of Harrisburg, PA. Though Trump follows 'the official story' for optics, notice how 'our nation's capital' is not capitalized? Capital refers to Washington D.C., whereas the 'official story' is Flight 93 was heading for the Capitol Dome, although it is possible to loosely refer to the Capitol Dome and White House as 'our nation's capital'. However, as we decode this Tweet, the coded content tells a much different version of the '40' brave men and women who fought back. The message has little to do with Cult 93's literal fourth target, but instead focuses on Cult 93's failure to fully complete [their] attack, and why, as a result of this, judgement is coming for [them]. Humanity however, will enjoy unity like never before, a truly mesmerizing and happy ending to the story of our National Epic. To see one of the most densely compressed and glorious coded messages ever, read the detailed breakdown and decoded message.
Capital letters: TF = 26 = GOD = HEAL; TAF = 27 = JFK = FAKED = RED = BALL = BLM = D END = HA HA HA
Capital letters integrated with number breaks. TF + 93; TA + 40; F + 93:
TA = 21 + 40 = 61 = QANON = DEFENDER = (of) YOU
The related and relevant Q drops are Q2255, Q3455, and Q4655. The first step is to identify that Q2257 and Q4657 both reference Think PLAYBOOK and THINK PLAYBOOK.
For additional puzzle pieces, the filenames in Q2255 & Q3455 are relevant:
Q2255 filename [62e7efd10462376b17163c7075e721482c9a106cb2eb7c51ad32cbb3834e6b97] = 68 = EL PASO = PASSAGE = BARACK OBAMA = BECOMING
(summarizing graphic HERE and decoded message HERE)

Isn't it remarkable that Maestro Trump is able to compress a story of such epic, breathtaking proportion into one Tweet? For those still 'on the fence' about JFK Jr. being alive after all, Trump has prepared the most undeniable array of dazzling confirmations, just for you.
At 11:36a, (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 11:05a Tweet) 39 minutes after the previous puzzle piece, Maestro Trump brings us all the way back to the the 6:13a Tweet that began the day. Do you see the 6 1 3 in 11:36? Do you see 93 reversed and flipped in 36? Do you recall how the 6:13a timestamp => (61 x 3 = 183 = BREAKING THE SPELLS, 183 was also the capital letter value of that 6:13a Tweet)? Watch Maestro Trump tie this PRESENT all up with a big, beautiful RED OCTOBER bow.
The White House timestamp is 11:05a => 105 = NINE ELEVEN = RED OCTOBER. RED = 27 = JFK; OCTOBER = 78 = KENNEDY. Trump's RT at 11:36a => 136 = GREAT AWAKENING = HEAVEN ON EARTH = 136 => 163 = MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Video duration: 0:40 => 40 = I AM Q = U.S. = US.
Capital letters of the 11:36a RT by Trump:
The numbers highlighted in the content are 40 = I AM Q; 93 => Cult 93 => Q vs Cult 93; 40 = SCALE = US; 93 = ENTITY = HARVEST = BREAKDOWN = GATEKEEPER
[(W = 23) + 40 = 63; (F = 6) + 93 = 99; (A = 1)] = [63 + 99 + 1] = 163 = MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
Related and relevant Q posts are:
Q2305 In the end, you will be 'shocked' to learn what you've 'essentially' witnessed.
Q4705 patriot, noun, a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion a person who loves their country and, if necessary, will fight for it, a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors, a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against all enemies foreign and domestic Q Video link (screenshot HERE), Patriot Flag scene (link HERE), exactly 1:29 => 129 = PATRIOT DAY = VIBRATIONS = 129 => 39.
Q2336 - Filename of image 1: DaHEgSOVwAEG-8h = 125 = JOHN KENNEDY = TIME TRAVEL; 125 + 8 = 133 = JOHN F KENNEDY + 2 (i.e. JFK 2). Filename of image 2: DdcamI6WAAEyROC = 125 = JOHN KENNEDY; 125 + 6 = 131 = JOHN F KENNEDY = SIXTY ONE (61 = QANON). Filename of image 3: DcPsu1PV0AEtzNc = 170 = DECODE INFORMATION = DIVINE BLOODLINES = I CLEAN UP THE MESS = WE'VE MADE IT TO EDEN = FORTY SEVEN = TRIPLE GIVEN NAME = TWO THREE THREE; 47 = JOHN; 233 = JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY (i.e. 'triple given name'). Filename of image 4: DHQ27100 = 29 = JFK + 2 (JFK 2); 27 = JFK = RED; 100 = RIG FOR RED = JFK JR IS Q. Filename of image 5: T_ah2810 = 29 = JFK + 2 (JFK 2); 29 + 2 + 8 + 1 + 0 = 40 = I AM Q.
Q3536 Thank you for confirming….
Q4736 RIG FOR RED. Q [RIG FOR RED = 100 = JFK JR IS Q; 47 = JOHN; 36 = I AM HE = PANDA (Vincent Kennedy's 'RED PANDA' = (RED) JFK, I AM HE (PANDA). 36 represents the reversal and flipping of 93.
(summarizing graphic and decoded message HERE)
Puzzle coming together? How much more clear can Maestro Trump make it? What if I told you he has many more bombshell revelations for us in the remaining puzzle pieces, one in particular, the 17th piece of the puzzle, which brings a twist ending that will blow your mind 103 times more than this?

2020.08.25 01:09 biggreekgeek Flatten the Curve. #52. Lance B Eliot. AI World Government President (Organization) Behind Lance? Oracle Solutions. S&P. Is Techbrium a Real Company? Founder Claims We're at War With China Already. The WEF Great Reset & Prince Charles. Boom or Doom. It's Game On.

You have to read, Flatten the Curve, Part 51 first. Who is Lance B Eliot? Link Here
After posting the article about Lance B Eliot yesterday, another video popped up on YouTube. u/D4W50N88 found it and provided the link, and I'm glad he did (Thank you D4). Why didn't it show up for me? No idea. But it did, and now the enigma has become worse.
When I first stumbled onto this, I made a mistake. I went back through my notes and found that I had wrongly attributed the Lance persona as the judge sitting to the left of what was Lance at the table. How did I screw up that bad? I'm human. (No seriously, I'm human. I'm not AI. I'm not NSA. CIA. I don't have any affiliations to any Alphabet agencies. I am what I am. And what is that? A guy who grew up with an extremely skeptical father who always called BS on the news and political events, and tried to make me understand that it was self interest, not altruism, that guided the world around us. That will be expanded on at some point down the road.) I make mistakes. It's not the first time and it won't be the last. But sometimes mistakes happen for a reason.
This is one of those times.
So I watched the second YouTube video of Lance that was provided here;
I'm not sure if he's exactly an AI, seems to be a real person going off this video -
Really quick summary, he doesn't say diddly squat. Anyone could have regurgitated lvl 5 autonomous cars and insurance rates. My statement doesn't prove anything though. I realize that. But let me ask you something, He's been on CNN, he's written a ton of books, he's an angel investor, a venture capitalist, CEO of Techbrium, and not one other picture or (so far) any other videos of him exist? We're living in an age of near omnipresent and approaching omnipotent surveillance, they are screwing with DNA, the government has acknowledged UFO's, phenomenon like the Hum and Sky Quakes are being reported worldwide, we live in a pandemic for which we will need never ending vaccinations, so is it really out of the realm of reason that Lance could be an actor? I've looked for research papers from him and I've found maybe three to four. None of them are overly technical and mainly deal with AI and the law and ethics. That's strange. But before we dive further, I will concede the possibility that there is a Lance B Eliot, but I'm adamant that the articles and books are written by AI. No doubt in my mind, and by the time this post is done, you'll wonder what's really going on as well.
Let's start with his name. Something about it grabbed my attention, as it did for others. I can't speak for them, but I remember just looking at it suddenly thinking, is that an anagram?
u/agelesseverytime • Lance B Eliot is an anagram for antebellico - prewar.
u/WhiteRabbitCaveCA also sent me the same anagram.
Hidden in plain sight. But it's still a chess game. Your moves have to be deceptive and you need to look ahead a minimum of three moves. And all moves have multiple moves. Does this mean that the anagram doesn't apply? No. It does. And it points to the ability of having meaning hidden in meaning, all in the open.
Now I will caution you, this post will be somewhat open-ended. I haven't been able to find anything definitive that could point to a possible origin of what I believe to be Lance B Eliot, yet those breadcrumbs do lead to loaves of bread, so to speak.
So when I was sent the other YouTube link with Lance as a speaker, I looked around the web again. I had already found what I thought was a very strong link, but now the video threw a monkey wrench into my plans.
This is what else I found when I Googled articles by Lance B Eliot. Eliot Weinman, executive editor of AI Trends, where AI Eliot seems to get published a lot. Relax, it's not just the name coincidence. It's also this:
Curiosity as a Core Cognitive Capability for Self-Driving Cars. By Eliot Weinman. — By Dr. Lance B. Eliot, the AI Trends Insider. • I live in a gated community that has a main gate for residents and guests, and provides an impressive driving entrance into the neighborhood that displays ornate iron gates and a spectacular water-sprouting fountain. There is a secondary gate at the back of the community.
And then.
President Trump Will Sign an Executive Order Promoting AI. By Eliot Weinman • — President Trump is expected to sign an executive order on Monday meant to spur the development and regulation of artificial intelligence, technology that many experts believe will define the future of everything from consumer products to health care to warfare.
Source Here
There is another example there, but this will suffice. So why is Lance B Eliot being headlined by Eliot Weinman? Doesn't make sense, does it? And what is
Say hello to your one-stop, relationship-building platform and goodbye to outdated media databases: Muck Rack’s search engine lets you discover and pitch relevant journalists in a much more targeted way than legacy media databases.
Ok. Now usually top ranking scientists don't belong to an organization that is meant to find journalists paying work. Why would they? And why would a guy who has started multiple companies, is a CEO of Techbrium - and speaking of which, check out the website, powered by godaddy? Seriously? It doesn’t list any employees, no detailed company history, and while it does have job openings, it seems off. So I Googled mapped Techbrium, and guess what, no results found. Ok. Gotcha. Must be the New Normal GPS malfunctioning, right? SMH.
Back to Eliot Weinman. Let me show you what he belongs to: Founder and Conference Chair, AI World & AI World Government (brought to you by the Cambridge Institute). Uhm. Keep Calm and Carry On? Don't Worry be Happy? And, Eliot Weinman is the GM and Founder at Cambridge Innovation Institute. Also, Eliot Weinman has had 1 past job as the President, Events and Publishing at Yankee Group. And. Research firm Yankee Group has acquired digital media and technology research and events firm Trendsmedia. The acquisition will “accelerate Yankee’s growth and expand its reach in global connectivity issues, helping network builders, operators and users navigate revolutionary change”, whatever that means. And when I clicked on trendsmedia, it led me to a clickfunnel company. And when I clicked on Yankees group, it was owned by 451 Research, which is owned by S&P Global Inc. (prior to April 2016 McGraw Hill Financial, Inc., and prior to 2013 McGraw-Hill Companies) is an American publicly traded corporation headquartered in Manhattan, New York City. Its primary areas of business are financial information and analytics.

Allen − Senior Executive Advisor, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. • Laurence D. Fink – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer BlackRock. There are more, but you get it. And let's just top it off with, CFR has published the bi-monthly journal Foreign Affairs since 1922, and runs the David Rockefeller Studies Program, which influences foreign policy by making recommendations to the presidential administration and diplomatic community, testifying before Congress, interacting with the media, and publishing on foreign policy issues.
And you may have noticed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which insures banks from going bankrupt. Yikes. Hopefully we don't have a cybersecurity attack on our banking systems. Maybe we should use Coalfire?
OK, are you confused, me too. Let's recap.


Lance B Eliot shares article ownership with Eliot Weinman on, which was published on AI Trends. Eliot Weinman is the executive director AI World and AI World Government. Trends Media was also bought by the Yankees Group, where Eliot Weinman is the President. And when I clicked on the Yankess group, it was owned by 451 Research, which was owned by S&P, which was started by friends of George Bush, who belonged to the Carlyle Group, which has a co-executive on the CFR, and Douglas Peterson is a member of the CFR and the WEF, while aslo running S&P.
Simple, right. Now, remember two things, Eliot Weinman seems to be associated with Lance B Eliot, and Lance is constantly produces articles about AI and business, while S&P has is all about business. Let's go.

Lance the Prequel.

So when I first found Lance, I started to ponder different anagrams. Why? Well, his last name. One guy who works for me is named Elliot, and Eliot stood out for the different spelling. After repeating a mantra of Eliot for a while, I stopped.
Eliot. ElIOT. elIoT. IoT. Internet of Things. It had to be me looking for a pattern. HAD TO BE. Then I looked at the name again. The end was possible, so I looked at his first name. I repeated the same mantra, letting my unconscious do the work. And sure enough, it hit me again. Lance. LANce. LAN. Local Area Network. No. Effing. Way. Come on. LAN + IoT = Local Area Network of Internet of Things. Ok. It adds up. Makes sense. I don't know how, but it does. Yet that still left me with the rest of his name.
CEBEL. Whelp, the mantra didn't help, it was time to dig. And dig I did. And found nothing. Well a couple of things, and one I thought that I was stretching logic too far, and the other, maybe not. Because it led me to OMG’s Artificial Intelligence Platform Task Force. A co-chair was Claude Baudoin, who has a company called cébé IT & Knowledge Management. And I almost went with it, and then something said NO. It was a gut feeling that I was wrong. There was no L in the company name. So I started digging all over again. And it wasn't easy. It took forever. It didn’t make sense. At all. I couldn't find anything that was an exact match. And then I saw this.
Thomas Siebel's software company C3IoT raised about $100 million from private equity investors in January 2018, at a $1.5 billion valuation. Today, is focused on enterprise AI, but it started as a clean energy firm. It was briefly named C3IoT in 2016 to chase the IoT market. Siebel was a salesman at Oracle. He left in 1990, built software firm Siebel Systems and sold it to Oracle for $5.8 billion in cash and stock in 2006. Forbes
And he was attacked by an Elephant.
(DID YOU KNOW. Siebel was attacked by an elephant on a 2009 safari trip in Serengeti; he barely escaped death and has undergone 19 reconstructive surgeries. Maybe the animal kingdom was defending the planet?)
It was briefly named C3IoT. But the first program was sold to Oracle and • Oracle Siebel CRM is a sales force automation (SFA) and customer relationship management solution designed to assist enterprises to manage their customer experiences. It includes a range of sales, marketing and customer service applications tailored to various industries • focuses on businesses. Much like a lot of Lances articles. And Thomas Siebel's software • is a leading enterprise AI software provider for accelerating digital transformation. The proven C3 AI Suite provides comprehensive services to build enterprise-scale AI applications more efficiently and cost-effectively than alternative approaches • advances AI to accelerate digital transformation, just like AI World Government, which is owned by Eliot Weinman. Is Cebel a play on Siebel? It sure seems like it to me.
And Thomas also has this to say.
High: What inning of the game do you believe we are in from an AI perspective, and how is that likely to develop going forward? Siebel: Julius Caesar considered Gaul as being divided into three parts, and I believe AI is divided into three parts.
1• Artificial general intelligence, which includes projects such as Google DeepMind. Here, the attempt is to build computers that have equal or greater intelligence as human beings. This gets to the malicious killer robots and the refrigerator that takes over your household theory, but I do not believe we need to worry about that in our lifetimes;
2• Social media systems. Here, social media vendors are using AI extremely effectively to manipulate people at the level of the limbic brain. I believe this is malevolent, and what we are seeing in social media is concerning. People are acting as servers to the computer instead of the opposite;
3• The application of AI to commercial, industrial, and government systems, which is where we play at This is building prediction to identify fraud, efficiency to the supply chain, and predictive maintenance for devices in the digital oilfields, the smart grid, the manufacturing industry, agricultural equipment, and precision health. This is about using AI to lower the cost of production and to deliver products and services with greater safety, with greater cybersecurity, and with lower environmental impact.
Hmmm. It's starting to sound like my posts, isn't it? Yet he's not worried about killer robots, yet social media manipulation, that's a problem. But I can bet you all the tea that's left in China, those words shouldn't be taken at Facebook value.
High: You have referred to there being a war with China based on artificial intelligence, and you have referenced how Vladimir Putin said the country that wins in AI will ultimately win in the world. As a citizen of the U.S., what do you think about this? How optimistic are you about the state’s ability to lead and the extent to which it is appropriate language? Siebel: This is a crucial topic. As you mentioned, in 2017, Vladimir Putin said, “Whoever wins the war in AI will be the ruler of the world.” I believe that is true, but I do not believe Russia will win. It is either going to be China or the U.S. I believe we are currently in a state of non-kinetic warfare with China. It is well-documented how great Russia and China are at infiltrating our power grid infrastructure, infiltrating our financial system infrastructure, and implanting viruses, bots, and malware so they can remotely turn off the grid. There are well-documented incidents where the Chinese have penetrated, say, the United States Office of Personnel Management and stolen the personnel records of up to 21 million people. This includes anyone who has ever applied for or been granted a security clearance. If this is not war, what is it? If you read the 13th five-year plan, it is extremely clear what they are doing. They are investing tens of billions of dollars a year in AI to win this battle and to dominate the use of AI for the purposes of defense and conducting warfare. In many ways, this is a test of two fundamentally opposed political philosophies. In the case of China, there is a totalitarian state with a top-down command and control economy where the NRDC writes the 13th five-year plan, invests billions of dollars, and mandates that this happens. They are extremely bright, competent, and educated, and they are hard at work. In the United States, we have a much messier process with a free-market economy and a capitalist system. Innovation does not take place from a top-down command and control government-mandated system, but in garages in Palo Alto and storefronts in theNew York. I do not know which system is going to win, but this is going to be the ultimate test of these political philosophies. This is not a war we want to lose, the stakes could not be higher, and it is game on.
And then.
High: What role do you see the government playing in all this versus private industries, and how do you see the balance between the two? Siebel: The people who work in the Pentagon are exceptionally bright and well educated. These scholar statesman warriors are not asleep at the switch, and they are adopting AI in many ways to prove the efficiency of the Department of Defense. As it relates to AI, the U.S. is going to advance through a free market economy, entrepreneurship, and through the creativity of individuals who are unbridled by the constraints of the stage. This system has always worked out for us in the past, and hopefully, it will continue to. If it does not, we are going to have a problem. Source Here
Game on. If it doesn't work, there's a problem, because we're in a war with China, and the Pentagon states that the war will be fought in abrupt climate change which will cause drought and famine in China. And I've said it before, but the social discord and the riots, will be blamed on Russia and/or China. And maybe they are to blame. Who knows, because we have to trust our New Normal World Order narrative as it's filtered with fact checks and fake news, while the surveillance system makes sure we are safe from physical threats through AI data mining, and incorporating AI through the Great Reset, which apparently China has to get on board with. Uhm, and people are having a hard time believing that our world is about to get turned upside down? Really? Has the desensitization been that effective that everyone is numb? Short answer, pretty much.

We have been somewhat languishing in this new normal and are seemingly trying to just keep ourselves in the new normal, sometimes now referred to as the new new normal. Believing that we are nearing the T-junction, the Figure 1 shows that we are upon a pivot point, perhaps in just the next 2-3 years, and will then swing either toward the boom or the doom, of which the Mohamed as odds-maker suggests are equally likely (50/50 chance).

So is Thomas Siebel and Oracle Siebel Systems supposed to be a homonym for Cebel? Is Eliot Weinman involved somehow, or is it just a coincidence. Is Lance B Eliot gonna be AI President of the Techncracy? Just keep paying attention and stay aware. We might not what is happening, but we know something is, and possibly hidden actors involved in all of it.
Heads up and eyes open. This hasn't even started yet. Talk soon and take care.

2020.08.23 00:33 Khalophrecia (Long read) Times (U.K) investigation - Trail of couples butchered in their beds sparks fears of a serial killer at large
That Saturday lunchtime in Gravel Lane in Wilmslow, Cheshire, was like any other. Cars trundled to the shops, children kicked balls in the playing field and just up the road the tall, kindly figure of Howard Ainsworth could be seen taking advantage of the spring weather to mow his precious lawn.
A former parks gardener, 79-year-old Howard was devoted to his petite 78-year-old wife, Beatrice — known as Bea — and was fretting a little that day because she had been laid low with a stomach bug. At about 2pm his neighbour Margaret Farror popped her head over the fence to ask how Bea was feeling.
It was the last time that either Howard or Bea was seen alive. In a witness statement to the police, Farror would later say that Howard seemed perfectly happy and friendly as he chatted. There was nothing in his demeanour to suggest unspeakable actions a few hours later.
The next morning Bea was found lying face up in her nightie on the bed with a knife in her forehead. Her head had been hit several times with a hammer and a pillow half obscured her face. Howard lay next to her in his pyjamas, his head propped up against the headboard and hooded with a bag. The police declared the case to be a murder suicide.
Despite the extremity of the violence, the police investigation regarded the key piece of evidence as a suicide note seemingly written by Howard of his own free will — and the coroner agreed. The case file was closed and the story of the double death in Gravel Lane might have ended there.
But three years later there was another apparent murder suicide in Wilmslow. There were many grisly parallels, besides the location. A devoted elderly couple — Donald and Auriel Ward — were found lying in their bloodstained bed, wearing nightclothes, at their home in Lacey Grove.
Auriel had been bludgeoned, stabbed and suffocated, and her head was partly covered with a pillow. Donald was found with a knife stuck into his heart. After a lengthy police investigation, the coroner found that Donald’s mind must have been disturbed and he — like Howard — had taken his own life after killing the wife he adored.
The four Wilmslow deaths presented the same mystery. There was no rhyme or reason to the severity of the violence, which was entirely uncharacteristic of either man, and — as far as anyone is aware — there was nothing in the loving relationships between the couples stretching back decades to suggest that their lives might end in such a brutal way.
The official explanation did not make sense to Christine Hurst, the coroner’s officer for Cheshire, who reviewed the police files on the cases in preparation for both inquests. Such was her concern, she put the case papers into a joint file “of special interest” and kept them in her office at Macclesfield police station. It would be 17 years before the papers would re-emerge.
Serial killer?
Today serious questions have emerged about whether both the cases could have been double murders, possibly by the same person. Moreover, three other murder suicides have also been identified involving elderly couples in the northwest, raising the chilling possibility that there still could be a serial killer at large. This weekend Cheshire police have launched a review into the matter.
The Wilmslow cases had always sat uneasily with Hurst, who was one of the most experienced coroner’s officers in the country. She has advised parliamentary committees and government departments and was called on to give evidence about the role of coroner’s officers in the inquiry into the serial killer Harold Shipman in 2002.
She has described in a written statement how the Ainsworth case did not feel “right” from the moment the envelope containing photographs relating to it came across her desk in spring 1996. Though accustomed to disturbing images because of her job, she was “appalled at the level of violence” that had been inflicted on Bea.
Three years later, in November 1999, Hurst happened to be in Macclesfield mortuary when Auriel Ward’s body came in, and she was instantly struck by how similar her wounds were to those she had seen in the photographs of Bea. Indeed, when she reviewed the photographs of the incident, she was surprised to see how much it resembled the earlier scene in Gravel Lane.
Hurst noted the likeness in the way the bodies were positioned in the bed; a knife was left protruding in both incidents; a pillow was set at the same angle over the two female victims’ faces; and their nighties had been left raised above their thighs, exposing them in an undignified manner. She raised these concerns with her colleagues in the police who were investigating the Ward case, but it led to nothing.
So when Hurst retired in 2017, she dug out the file of special interest and passed it on to her bright new successor, Stephanie Davies, a high-flyer who had been given a commendation by the chief constable two years earlier and held a string of qualifications in death investigations, crime scenes and forensic science. “I hoped that one day these two cases would be looked at again,” Hurst wrote.
That is exactly what Davies did. The new Cheshire coroner’s officer, who is an employee of the police, launched herself into the task of re-examining the murder files in her free time and took courses to further understand the science.
Extensive countrywide research turned up two more cases that had been deemed murder suicides and fitted the pattern. Remarkably, they were both just a half-hour drive away in the Greater Manchester area. In each case the elderly woman had been stabbed in the neck and suffered “blunt force trauma” to her head after seemingly being attacked by her husband, who had then taken his own life.
Davies enlisted the help of Steve Chancellor, one of America’s top “cold case” police forensic investigators, who has lectured and written about how offenders attempt to misdirect detectives at crime scenes. His review of the Ainsworth and Ward case files said vital clues were missed or misinterpreted.
He disagreed with the findings of the two police investigations and argued that both cases were likely to be double murders. “I would be looking at the same offender involved in both cases as a very real possibility,” he concluded, although he cautioned he could not be 100% sure.
Chancellor found it extraordinary that there had been similar cases in the Manchester area. “I am not sure of the statistical probabilities, but they have to be astronomical for four similar murder suicides, involving elderly couples, inside their homes, using blunt and sharp force trauma and/or asphyxia as a cause of death.
“Further, in all four cases, there is no history of domestic violence within the marriage and, more importantly, in each case the husband’s alleged perpetrator actions were described as out of character. I would suggest a detailed look throughout the country for any additional victims or other similar cases.”
Armed with Chancellor’s expert opinion, Davies compiled a 179-page report on five murder suicides — including an extra case she had discovered in Cumbria — that she believes are strikingly similar.
She handed the report to Cheshire police last month and is calling on the National Crime Agency and Interpol to urgently review cases across Britain and Europe to determine whether there are any more related murders. Cheshire police are looking at the new information in the report and have contacted the Greater Manchester and Cumbria forces in regard to the other cases.
We were shown a copy of the report by a source, but Davies declined to comment when approached last week.
In her report, she wrote: “It is certainly not the intention to disrepute the findings of those original investigators who worked on these cases 20 years ago. The knowledge that investigators have these days surrounding forensics, bloodstain pattern analysis and crime scene interpretation is more advanced.”
But she said she decided to raise the cases with the police because of “the concern that there is an outstanding offender, who could still be offending, and who needs to be brought to justice”.
It was also an opportunity to support the families of the victims, who might believe wrongly that “their fathers/grandfathers/ uncles/brothers have violently killed and degraded their wives. And finally, this is to ensure that the truth comes out for those deceased victims themselves.”
In her opinion, the interpretation of the murder scenes in the original investigations could well be wrong and instead the deaths might be the work of a serial killer who has not been caught.
Strange and illegal act It was the era of Britpop, and the “bigger than the Beatles” local band Oasis were playing to sold-out crowds at the Maine Road stadium in Manchester on the last weekend of April 1996, when the lives of Howard and Bea Ainsworth ended.
Farror, the couple’s neighbour, spotted their curtains were still drawn at 11.30am on Sunday, April 28, and called police after her attempts to contact them had failed. The awful sight that greeted PC Neal Miller is described calmly in his report, but this was no usual crime scene.
“I could see there was a male and a female body, both in their mid-70s, lying face up on a double bed,” wrote Miller. “The female was on the left side closest the door and the male was closest to the window on the right side. The female had a blood-soaked pillow over her face with a wooden handle of a kitchen knife sticking out of it . . . The male was lying to her right with a large clear plastic bag over his head.”
An initial reading of the scene suggested that Howard had killed his wife and then taken his own life. Crucially, a suicide note had been a left on a yellow pad that had been placed on the sideboard next to where the couple’s bodies lay. It was purported to have been written by Howard at 3.30am that day.
In spidery writing, its author matter-of-factly gave details of Bea’s recent illness from a virus and described a doctor’s visit earlier. Bea had become “delirious” and therefore, the writer said: “It looks as tho [sic] our lives have gone so have given her some sleeping tablets and I will have to throttle her.”
This extraordinary leap of logic in the note did not make sense for a number of reasons, not least that the doctor would later tell the police that Bea was merely suffering from a stomach bug, which should have improved after a few days, and she had no long-term illnesses. Howard also appeared to be in good health, so there was no reason for the couple to take their lives. But the suicide theory was given added plausibility when the police found paperwork in the couple’s home that showed they had joined the Scottish Voluntary Euthanasia Society six years earlier. A “Do not resuscitate” sign had been left at the top of the stairs and the back door had been left unlocked — both measures that were part of the couple’s euthanasia plan.
The suicide note ended with a tender and resigned acknowledgment that “we have had a good life together”. Yet it was difficult to reconcile the warmth of this sentiment with the evidence of extreme violence the police had witnessed in the bedroom.
Bea had been hit several times over the head with a hammer and may already have been dead when she was stabbed in the forehead with such force, the knife penetrated her skull and snapped at the end. Two hammers were found upstairs, one of which had been washed in the bathroom sink as if someone had attempted to destroy DNA evidence.
This was not a crime of compassion, as the suicide note had suggested. Christopher Docker, the Scottish euthanasia society’s executive secretary, would tell police: “We are concerned that none of our literature encompasses such a strange and illegal act and we are shocked by it.”
There was no respect for the victim: the knife was left lodged in her head and the hemline of her nightie had been pulled up to the hip as she lay lifeless on the bed. Chancellor, the US crime scene expert, believes these to be crucial facts that undermine the theory this was merely euthanasia. “I just do not see Mr Ainsworth acting in such a violent manner against his wife,” he opined. “Even if he decided to end their life as was his eventual plan — the means he used is inconsistent with his long-held belief to end their lives with dignity when they were ready.
“Mrs Ainsworth’s life was not ended with dignity. It was ended with violence and she was left in an embarrassing or degrading position. This is so out of character, I cannot concur with the initial police finding.”
Moreover, Chancellor believes that the scene could well have been staged to look like a suicide. A bottle of sedatives was left on a chest of drawers in the bedroom with two tumblers, as if they had been used as part of a planned suicide. But the toxicology reports did not find the pills had been taken by the couple, and their doctors confirmed that they had never been prescribed this particular sedative.
There was also little blood on Howard’s pyjamas or hands, which was surprising given the severity of the attack. It appeared that he had asphyxiated himself with a bag over his head, but the pathologist noticed bruises on his lips that were “not explained” by this manner of death. Such injuries can be caused when somebody is forcibly suffocated by an attacker, Chancellor noted.
Howard’s body was also found in an unusual position. He was lying flat, with his left hand wedged under his back and his head half propped up against the headboard. “In my opinion, this is consistent with him being placed into bed by an offender after he was already dead,” said Chancellor. Bea’s knees also had fresh abrasions, suggesting she might have been dragged across the floor to the bed. Most mysteriously of all, blood had spattered the bag that covered Howard’s head, the report noted. In the photographs, the droplets appeared to be consistent with the pattern of stains across the bedsheets caused by the impact injuries suffered by Bea. If this was so, then Howard could not have been the killer, as he was already lying dead when she met her violent end.
The ruled-out suspect John Ainsworth, the couple’s only child, stood to inherit the house in Gravel Lane. A note with his name and address had been left in the bedroom but, oddly, he was not contacted at his home in Derby by police until 2am on the Monday.
“Probably through shock, I went straight to bed and fell asleep,” he said in his police statement. In the morning, he went to the drug rehab charity where he worked and was given the day off when he told his boss what had happened.
It was John who described to the police his father’s long-held belief in euthanasia — a fact confirmed by a neighbour. “My father had told me that as soon as deteriorating health reduced their quality of life, they would enter into a suicide pact. My mother was present when this was discussed,” he told the police.
When we tracked down John, 66, to his new home on a remote country lane near the village of Tanyfron in Wrexham last month he was still bitter about the way the police had handled the case. “The police were fwits. They thought I’d done it. I had a f of a job with those Cheshire pig c***s,” said John, who has always denied any involvement in his parents’ deaths.
A divorced father with two children, he said that “the police had staked out my house in their ignorance”, but he was nowhere near the scene of the crime at the time his parents died. “I had gone to pick up my ex-wife and kids to take them down to London to see her dying mother,” he said, “so my mother-in-law came through for me, and that was my alibi . . . I was absolved.”
John said he spent the weekend at a friend’s house in Hackney, east London, and was driving back on the M40 when he saw a bird of prey, a red kite, “at exactly the time that my father was doing my mother in”.
He believes his father had been hit by a “very fast form of dementia” just before the attack. “I understand that my dad went nuts and his predilection for euthanasia and his manic depression took over,” he said. His father was a complicated man, he explained, who had been traumatised by fighting the Japanese in Burma during the Second World War.
The police had quickly discounted John as a suspect, and two months later they allowed him to supply some of the key evidence of his father’s handwriting, which was used to confirm that Howard had been the author of the suicide note and other papers found at the scene.
John explained that the house had been mysteriously cleared of paperwork before his parents’ deaths. “In the two years before he died, he destroyed just about all paperwork belonging to the family. There’s very little documentary evidence of anything . . . That I’ve never understood.”
He moved into his parents’ house for a few years after they died and was aware that there had been similar deaths. When our reporter raised the possibility that there was a second, related case in Wilmslow, he said: “In fact there’s a third.” He was referring to one of the two Manchester cases.
“I read newspapers,” he said. “As far as I am concerned there is no link between the three. They didn’t know each other . . . Was the second one a copycat? That’s not my story.”
Act of compassion At the end of a darkened lane lined with thick rhododendron bushes, the front gate had been left open to the imposing redbrick dormer bungalow. On Friday, November 26, 1999 a neighbour and his friend peered through the unlocked kitchen door to see the table set for breakfast in the late afternoon, but nobody seemed to be at home.
It was difficult to make anything out when the two men padded upstairs and ventured into the dimly lit main bedroom — until they found the light switch. There were the inhabitants, the Wards, a couple married for 45 years, lying together in bloodstained sheets.
The husband and wife were well liked in the affluent Cheshire town, which is known for its famous residents such as Sir Alex Ferguson, the then Manchester United manager. Mary Colborn-Roberts, a hairdresser who saw 68-year-old Auriel every week, recalled that her friend “always wore the nicest clothes — usually navy M&S clothes”. She described Donald, a 73-year-old former industrial chemist, as “the sort who wore a trilby hat. He would tip his hat at you when he walked past and hold doors for people — a proper gentleman.”
Just a week earlier, a local handyman called James Allen had been finishing off the couple’s new driveway when Donald had popped out for a chat. In his police statement, Allen recalls that Auriel had spotted Donald and brought a coat in case he caught a chill. Later Auriel rejoined the two men on the driveway and Donald took off the coat and placed it gently around his wife’s shoulders.
It was a small act of kindness between a seemingly happy couple that would be hard to reconcile with the official version of the events the police believed happened sometime around daybreak on Tuesday, November 23. The courteous grandfather is said to have gone berserk.
The sight that confronted the police investigators when the bodies were found three days later was harrowing. One officer still has uncomfortable memories. “I can honestly say I’d never seen anything like that bedroom. The violence on show was extreme,” he said. “I probably should have referred myself for counselling and therapy. But back then it wasn’t really the done thing. You just get on with it.”
Auriel had been bludgeoned in the head, stabbed in the neck and suffocated with a pillow. Donald had a gaping slit across his throat and a knife embedded through his ribcage into his heart. Both had injuries to their hands that were initially thought to have been sustained while defending themselves from an attacker. By the bed there were smashed pieces of a ceramic hot water bottle, which appeared to have been used as a weapon both to hit Auriel on the head then to stab her with its broken shards.
The police began a murder inquiry, but the pathologist’s report the next day cast immediate doubt on the idea that a third party was involved. The report found that Donald had cuts to his hands, groin, wrists and upper body. While accepting that some of these injuries could be in self-defence against an attacker, the pathologist was of the belief that they had been self-inflicted. However, the evidence did not rule out a third party intruder.
A retired detective who worked on the original inquiry said: “It was treated as a full-on murder investigation. We interviewed potential people of interest who were in prisons and chased down individuals who may have been in the area at the time.”
The police investigation took more than six months. The DNA sampling found the blood at the scene belonged to the couple. But it is not clear whether wider DNA tests were carried out to find other evidence of an intruder, and the police concluded that it was likely no other attacker was involved. “In the end, the most compelling argument we had was that Donald killed his wife and killed himself. Is it possible a third party could have been involved? Yes. There is a possibility,” said the detective.
But there were a number of facts that made the detectives feel uneasy. Donald had no known history of violence and yet the attack on his wife, if it was a murder suicide, was overkill. A review of the case by the now defunct National Crime Faculty (NCF) found the attack to be “expressive”, which means a level of violence was applied beyond that needed to kill her — possibly out of extreme rage.
So the official story is this: after clubbing his wife with the ceramic hot water bottle and stabbing her with its broken shards, Donald is then said to have gone downstairs and gathered a kitchen knife to attack her further. Both her main arteries in her neck were severed.
Her body was left with her nightie hitched up to hip height, before a blanket was folded back over her and a pillow was left partially over her face.
One of the key pieces of evidence that persuaded the police Donald carried out the attack was that his blood was found on the knife drawer in the kitchen as well as the light switch and the backdoor key. The forensics team believed the blood had dripped directly from one of the deep cuts to his right hand, which could have been defence wounds or, according to the police theory, cuts from using the ceramic shards as a weapon.
The NCF report found the discovery of the blood downstairs to be convincing evidence but acknowledged that it did not preclude all possible scenarios such as an “extremely skilful attempt to ‘stage’ the crime” to make it look like no third party was involved.
One of the aspects of the case that continued to confound them was the manner of Donald’s death. He had been stabbed three times in the groin area and his wrist was slashed but there seemed to be a lack of blood. A lot of blood, however, had seeped out onto his pillow from the deep cut across the front of his neck, which had severed his jugular vein.
The NCF report added: “We have concerns and need explanations as to the blood pattern on Mr Ward’s face. The position the body was discovered in does not match this blood patterning. It is our opinion that the blood pattern must have come when Mr Ward’s face was in contact with a heavily bloodstained object, and either Mr Ward or the object has moved, how?”
Most baffling of all is that Donald had severe bleeding from his cut throat — sufficient to end his life — and yet he is thought to have carried on harming himself. Would he then have had the strength to plunge a knife into his own heart?
Chancellor assessed this as unlikely, especially as there were no hesitation marks, which are normally seen when someone gathers the courage to self-inflict such a devastating final blow to themselves. “The injuries to the neck are so severe, I just can’t imagine he would then stab himself so deeply,” he noted.
Similar misgivings were expressed in the NCF report. “Is it feasible that someone is able to self-inflict Mr Ward’s neck injury and still be able to stab himself through the heart. Bearing in mind he is believed to be right-handed and the injuries to the right hand.”
The final blow caused only minor bleeding, suggesting that his heart may have already stopped. Could this injury have been inflicted by someone else after Donald had died?
The couple did not leave a suicide note. Despite the cloud cast over Donald’s role in the deaths, the couple’s family held a joint memorial, believing they should still be together, as they always had been. The family are reluctant to speak about the incident and say they have tried to get “closure” in the past 20 years, despite struggling to accept Donald was capable of such a crime.
But Auriel’s friend Colborn-Roberts recalled: “I went to their memorial service. I remember one of the sons telling me that they never believed their father could have done it. I don’t think anybody did. He said: ‘Dad was a chemist. He knew every chemical under the sun which could have killed them both peacefully. I don’t believe he’d have chosen that way.’”
Strikingly similar
In her report sent to Cheshire police, Davies argues that both cases are double murders and show signs that attempts have been made by the perpetrator to misdirect the police into believing that there was no third party involved. She lists numerous significant similarities between the cases. They include the night clothes, the position of the two bodies, the method of attack, the nighties pulled up, the women’s faces partially covered by a pillow and their wedding rings on display.
In addition, she argues that both male bodies had been moved or rearranged after death, and that the attacks were “out of character” because there was no history of domestic violence or psychiatric illness. Her report says these are signs of a “signature behaviour” that an offender repeats in order to satisfy some psychological or sexual need.
Fearing that such an offender may have committed similar crimes, she carried out an extensive search, including making freedom of information inquiries across the country, and found 39 cases of elderly couples discovered together after suspected murder suicides between 2000 and last year.
When she narrowed her search down based on the injuries documented at Wilmslow, she identified three cases. All happened to be in the northwest: two close by in Greater Manchester and one in Cumbria. In her report, Davies makes clear that she cannot be sure these murder suicides are linked to the Ainsworth and Ward cases because she did not have access to police files.
The report does find some “striking” similarities with the Wilmslow deaths. But these three cases are not clear-cut and all have complicating factors that may have tipped the balance when the police were deciding whether the husband had the motivation to murder his wife and take his own life.
The three other cases
On February 21, 2000, a couple were found dead in their home in East Didsbury, Manchester, with extensive head and neck injuries. It was just three months after the deaths of the Wards and detectives from Manchester instantly contacted Cheshire police because of the similarity between the cases.
According to Davies’s report, the body of Violet Higgins, a 76-year-old former policewoman, was discovered in her nightie on the marital bed after being bludgeoned with a rolling pin and stabbed in the neck with a pair of scissors. Reports said she had been beaten “beyond recognition”. She had been attacked while sleeping and was found huddled under a duvet.
The body of her husband, Michael, a 59-year-old former security guard, was in the spare room in his pyjamas. He had been stabbed in the throat and garrotted with a coat hanger. A bottle of pills was scattered across the bathroom floor.
The police quickly dropped the investigation, believing it was a murder suicide. The inquest heard evidence that Michael was suffering from Parkinson’s disease and his wife had threatened to put him in a home, a possible motive for the killing. He had also been to a solicitor to discuss the possibility of divorce.
However, the coroner, Leonard Gorodkin, remarked specifically on the fact that the couple had enjoyed a happy marriage and while finding that the case was a murder suicide, he said it was far from clear what had driven Michael to such an attack. “I don’t know what led to them falling out, but terrible violence took place that was completely out of character with Mr Higgins,” he said.
Davies’s report speculates that this may have been a double murder by someone who was attempting to make it look like a suicide. “The combined methods of sharp-force injury to the throat, the pills thrown on the floor and . . . the coat hanger around the neck all in combination strikes as a very rare and unusual suicide method. These method(s) and signs of suicide, could therefore be indicative of exaggeration at the scene, ie where an offender tries to make it obvious to the police that the death was due to suicide.”
Her report also raises questions about whether the November 2008 deaths of Eileen and Kenneth Martin on the eve of their 55th wedding anniversary might have been linked to the other alleged murders. Eileen, a 76-year-old former printer, was killed by blows to the head with a blunt instrument — possibly a hammer — and had cuts to her neck and wrists. Her body was found in the garage at their home in Davyhulme, Greater Manchester, alongside Kenneth, a 77-year-old retired steel erector, who is said to have slashed his own throat, cut his wrists and hanged himself, according to the report.
It was presented in newspapers at the time as a “mercy killing”. Kenneth had suffered from prostate cancer and he was struggling to look after his wife, who had severe dementia. He had expressed concern that if he died first then Eileen would become a burden to their children and had told his daughter, “When it’s my time to go, it’ll be her time to go”, but she believed the remarks to be just attention-seeking. On the night before their deaths he broke down in tears and told his daughter he could no longer cope. She reassured him she would “come round every day” to help.
However, this case is not entirely clear-cut. Davies’s report points out that the brutal injuries inflicted on Eileen were not at all consistent with a mercy killing. Furthermore, Kenneth was frail and had difficulty walking, raising questions about whether he had the physical power to carry out such an attack.
The last couple identified in the report were Stanley Wilson, 92, a former quarry worker, and his 89-year-old wife, Peggie, from Kendal in Cumbria. During a long retirement filled with bowling, Scrabble and needlework, the loving couple were often spotted around town holding hands.
Sometime overnight on February 17 or February 18, 2011, Stanley, who had recently suffered significant loss of sight, is believed to have carried out a frenzied and prolonged attack on his retired teacher wife in the front bedroom. She was hit on the head and face, strangled and then stabbed with a knife in the neck several times, severing her jugular vein. Stanley is said to have killed himself with several stab wounds to the neck.
Was this a double murder? The inquest heard Stanley had been released from the Royal Lancaster Infirmary the day before and had been expressing paranoid fears that his wife, son and the nursing staff were trying to poison him.
Certainly, the couple’s son, Graham, believes that his father committed the crime because of mental illness, even though — as his wife, Barbara, pointed out — Stanley “worshipped the ground she [his wife] walked on”. Graham added: “It was horrible, but I would never have suspected foul play.”
There were, however, several parallels to the stabbings in the Ward case in particular, Davies’s report notes.
It goes on to profile the type of person the killer might be. Davies believes he would be a younger man more powerful than his victims. He is likely to have befriended his victims, which is why they would allow him to enter homes. The report suggests that the murderer “had a strong hatred toward women, especially domineering females”.
It concludes: “This individual will not stop killing until someone or something stops him . . . The acts of dominating the victims, carrying out the murders, and fooling the police, are all addictive to him. He will have meticulously planned each murder, ensured he left no forensic evidence and followed the cases in the media.”
Alarm bells
In the preparation for this article, we asked Peter Kirkham, a former detective chief inspector who served for 21 years in the Metropolitan police, to review the case files. He was instantly struck by how unusual the two Wilmslow cases were.
He said: “The knife left in the head is strange. That is one of the genuine things that immediately for me rang bells. It’s a significantly higher level of violence and quite extreme violence for this ‘mild mannered couple, never had a bad word in their lives’ situation.”
One of the main facts that did not fit, in Kirkham’s opinion, was the presence of a suicide note in the Ainsworth case. In her report, Davies speculates Howard Ainsworth may have been coerced by the attacker to write the note.
But Kirkham says he has never experienced an offender having so much control over the victims. “It doesn’t happen, in my experience . . . even if they’re frail and incapable of very much.”
However, Kirkham does believe that the case raises “sufficient serious valid concerns to merit a review of these deaths”. He said the Cheshire review should ask an experienced criminal profiler to review the report initially, followed potentially by blood-spatter and pathology experts.
“The report makes allegations that there may be a serial killer on the loose and provides a large number of reasons for coming to that conclusion. Those allegations should now be examined.”
This weekend Nazir Afzal, the former chief prosecutor for the northwest, said: “The concerns raised in this report need to be taken very seriously. We could potentially have a serial killer in our midst. There needs to be a proper review of these cases and others which carry similar hallmarks.”
Chester MP Chris Matheson said police must act swiftly. “The implications don’t bear thinking about if there is an offender responsible for a series of what were dreadful crimes.”
Cheshire police said: “We are in receipt of the report and it is being reviewed. This is a piece of research which has been undertaken by the staff member, independently from her role within the constabulary. As with any case that has been closed, where new information comes to light, it is reviewed and acted upon if appropriate. We have notified both Greater Manchester Police and Cumbria Constabulary.”
Further victims?
Donald and Aurial Deceased Donald, 73, and Auriel Ward, 68. Date bodies found November 26, 1999. Location Wilmslow, Cheshire.
Happily married for 45 years, the smartly dressed couple doted on their grandchildren. Known for his impeccable manners, Donald, a retired chemist, was seen being affectionate towards Auriel, an ex-nursery school teacher, days before they died. Their son said he never believed his father was capable of such an act.
Crime scene
Their bodies were found in bed. Donald was wearing pyjamas and Auriel was in a nightdress. She had been struck over the head with a ceramic water bottle and had stab wounds to her neck. Donald’s neck had been cut open and a knife plunged into his heart.
Michael and Violet Deceased Michael, 59, and Violet Higgins, 76. Date bodies found February 21, 2000. Location Didsbury, Manchester.
Violet, an ex-policewomen, and Michael, a former security guard, had been described as “the perfect couple” by friends. Michael had Parkinson’s disease and his wife was considering putting him in a home. But his brother said he was never “capable of hurting anyone”.
Crime scene Violet’s body was found in her nightdress in the couple’s bed while Michael was in his pyjamas in the spare room. She had been beaten over the head with a rolling pin and stabbed in the neck with scissors. He had cuts to his neck and was strangled with a coathanger twisted round his neck.
Kenneth and Eileen *Deceased Kenneth, 77, and Eileen Martin,76. Date bodies found November 10, 2008. Location Davyhulme, Greater Manchester.
The devoted couple were on the brink of celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary. Kenneth, a retired steel erector, had cancer and had been struggling to care for Eileen, a former printer, who had dementia. Their family said they could not comprehend what had happened.
Crime scene
The couple’s bodies were both found in their garage. Eileen had severe head injuries and cuts to her wrists and neck. Kenneth was found hanged with a slashed throat.
Deceased Stanley, 92, and Peggie Wilson, 89. Date bodies found February 18, 2011. Location Kendal, Cumbria.
The “loving and happy” couple are said to have had many friends. Stanley, a retired quarryman, was a bowling enthusiast, and Peggie, a former teacher, loved painting and needlework. Shortly before their deaths, however, Stanley had begun suffering from acute mental illness and paranoia.
Crime scene
Both were found dead in their bedroom. Peggie had blunt-force injuries to her head and numerous knife wounds to her neck, one of which severed her jugular vein. Stanley had lethal cuts to his neck and body.

2020.08.22 03:07 Trappezoidal I made an action-packed "bush" trip around Southern California and the Barrier Islands

Hi Everyone, I thought I'd create a short "bush" trip around part of southern California. I've specified the date, time, and weather patterns for each leg that should be used, but feel free to change it up.

I hope you like it,
- Trappezoidal
\ Warning: It looks like the formatting is messed up on mobile. Recommend browser for viewing. \ Latest Update: Sept 8, 2020 \ Edit: The barrier Islands are actually called the Channel Islands (of course there is a typo in the title...)


You live in the beautiful State of Montana. However, it's December, and so you have decided to spend your winter vacation in sunny southern California. Specifically, you will be staying in a resort on Catalina Island, where the average December daytime high is a pleasant 62 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, you are absolutely loaded, so, you decide to take a flight tour of southern California that ends near your resort. You find yourself on the tarmac of Van Nuys ('van-eyes') Airport in "The Valley" in Los Angeles. A shiny, brand-spanking new Cessna 172 sits in front of you. Let's get started! Aircraft: Cessna 172 Skyhawk (G1000) ETE's estimated with cruise speed: 120 KTAS
Here is a map of the route:

Leg 1 - Roads and Landmarks

FROM: KVNY\ TO: KHHR\ Date: DEC 21, 2020\ Time: 4:10 PM\ Weather: Scattered Clouds\ Flight Time: 17'
For the first leg of your journey, you will be following some of LA's freeways, and passing some famous landmarks. You begin at Van Nuys Airport.
Scenery:\ The famous Hollywood Sign: \ Downtown Los Angeles:
1) Heading 160, 5.21 NM, ETE 2'36''\ NAME: Top of the 405 Pass\ Take off from KVNY runway 16L. There is a large freeway (the 405) East of the airport; follow it south as it goes into the hills. Climb with the road to its highest point.
2) Heading 168, 2.4 NM, ETE 1'12''\ NAME: End of the 405 Canyon\ Continue following the 405 freeway down a canyon. Stay low for a challenge, but watch your speed!
3) Heading 058, 8.2 NM, ETE 4'6''\ NAME: Hollywood Sign\ As the 405 freeway exits the hills, make a sharp left and fly along the base of the hills (Beverly hills, to be exact), keeping the ridge-line on your left. Keep flying until you see another freeway crossing the hills (the 101). Just past this freeway is the Hollywood reservoir, and on the hill above that, the Hollywood sign.
4) Heading 131, 5.6 NM, ETE 2'48''\ NAME: Downtown LA\ At the Hollywood reservoisign, turn right to heading 131 and approach downtown Los Angeles (the large buildings in the distance).
5) Heading 178, 7.91 NM, ETE 4'0''\ NAME: Interchange\ As you arrive over downtown Los Angeles, you will see a large freeway (the 110) running in between the skyscrapers. Follow the freeway southwest. The fre1eway then turns southwards and crosses another freeway (the 10). Keep following the 110 (descending to ~1000 ft) until it intersects a second freeway (the 105).
6) Heading 252, 2.8 NM, ETE 1'23''\ NAME: Hawthorne Municipal Airport (KHHR)\ Turn right just after the 110 - 105 interchange and land at Hawthorne Municipal Airport (KHHR).

Leg 2 - Sunset over the PCH

FROM: KHHR\ TO: KCMA\ Date: DEC 21, 2020\ Time: 4:38 PM\ Weather: Scattered Clouds\ Flight Time: 16'
For this leg, you will fly into the sunset along one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the United States: the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).
Scenery:\ The Santa Monica Pier: \ The Pacific Coast at Sunset:
1) Heading 260, 4.5 NM, ETE 2'15''\ NAME: Pacific Coast\ Make sure to take off at 4:38 PM on DEC 21, 2020, with scattered clouds to make the most of the sunset! After takeoff, make heading 260 towards the beach.
2) Heading 316, 6 NM, ETE 3'0''\ NAME: Santa Monica Pier\ At the shore, turn right and head north along the coastline. You will first pass over Marina Del Rey, then a very thin pier, and finally a large pier: Santa Monica Pier.
3) Heading 267, 9.3 NM, ETE 4'39''\ NAME: Malibu Lagoon\ Santa Monica Pier is the official endpoint of Route 66, and it is right at the start of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). The PCH hugs the coast for miles. Continue along the coast Northwest and enjoy the sunset (play with the cloud layers if you'd like to get the best light show). You will come to a rounded point with a lagoon. This is Malibu Lagoon, at the base of the Malibu Creek.
4) Heading 241, 6.5 NM, ETE 3'15''\ NAME: Dume Point\ Continue past Malibu Lagoon, following the PCH to the larger point in the distance: Dume Point.
5) Heading 281, 7 NM, ETE 3'30''\ NAME: Canyon Entrance\ Turn right at Point Dume and continue along the coast for about 7 NM. Keep following the PCH until there are no more houses. You should then see a small parking lot, and just after it, a road branching off the PCH and up into a canyon. Hit the throttle; we are about to have a steep ascent.
6) Heading 359, 4.7 NM, ETE 2'50''\ NAME: Canyon Top\ Make a sharp right into the canyon, following the road that branches of the PCH. Try to gain as much altitude as you can. Keep following the road for about 3 NM until the canyon splits. The road goes right, you go left. Weave your way up, hugging the right side of the canyon. Eventually, you should come to the top of the mountain range. It's not important exactly which peak you get to.
7) Heading 344, 3.6 NM, ETE 1'48''\ NAME: 101 FWY\ From the top of the range, head North until you see a large freeway (the 101, again) running East-West. Turn left and follow it westward.
8) Heading 272, 7.7 NM, ETE 5'8''\ NAME: Camarillo Airport (KCMA)\ The 101 freeway will lead you directly to your destination for this leg: Camarillo Airport (KCMA).

Leg 3 - Night Flight to Santa Barbara

FROM: KCMA\ TO: KSBA\ Date: DEC 21, 2020\ Time: 5:00 PM\ Weather: Scattered Clouds\ Flight Time: 19'
This leg of your journey is not the most difficult navigationally. Rather, it's a relaxing night flight that gives you an opportunity to enjoy the lights of the 101 freeway and the beautiful stars in the night sky (see if you can spot the Milky Way). Be warned, however, if you are too distracted, you might find yourself drifting to the East and into the dark mountains that loom along the coast.
Scenery:\ Stearns Wharf in Daytime:
1) Heading 279, 10 NM, ETE 5'20''\ NAME: Pacific Coast\ Take off at 5:00 PM and make heading 279 towards the coast.
2) Heading 289, 8.8 NM, ETE 4'24''\ NAME: More Pacific Coast\ Once you reach the coast, follow it for a little over 4 minutes.
3) Heading 276, 12.5 NM, ETE 6'15''\ NAME: Stearns Warf\ Keep following the coast. After another 6 minutes or so, you will come across a pier (Stearns Warf) and a harbor (Santa Barbara Harbor).
4) Heading 277, 3.9 NM, ETE 2'0''\ NAME: More 101 FWY\ From Stearns Warf/Santa Barbara Harbor, make heading 276, still following the 101 freeway as it turns inland. Follow the road for another 2 minutes. At this point you should see Santa Barbara Airport (KSBA) 4 NM to the West.
5) Heading 256, 3.72 NM, ETE 2'28''\ NAME: Santa Barbara Airport (KSBA)\ Approach and land at Santa Barbara Airport (KSBA). Taxi to parking and shut down your aircraft. Its time to get some sleep; the second half of your journey starts in the early morning.

Leg 4 - To the Barrier Islands!

FROM: KSBA\ TO: KISS\ Date: DEC 22, 2020\ Time: 6:55 AM\ Weather: Scattered Clouds\ Flight Time: 21'
You are so excited for your vacation that you wake up before sunrise. You feel like changing things up a bit from yesterday, and again, you are absolutely loaded, so you buy a shiny new Beachcraft Bonanza G36 that happened to be for sale at the Santa Barbara Airport. You climb in just before the sun rises, and you get ready for your tour of the barrier islands on your way to Catalina Island.
Scenery: \ San Miguel Island: \ Bechers bay Airfield:
ETE's estimated with cruise speed: 160 KTAS
1) Heading 219, 34 NM, ETE 12'45''\ NAME: San Miguel Island\ Take off from KSBA at 6:55 AM on Dec 22, 2020, and set heading 219. You are heading across the water to San Miguel Island. Enjoy the sunrise to the East. Once the island comes into view, aim for the right side.
2) Heading 111, 7.5 NM, ETE 2'54''\ NAME: Santa Rosa Island\ When you arrive at the island, turn left and follow the northern coast to the East. Once you get to the end of the island, aim across to the next island: Santa Rosa Island.
3) Heading 67, 9.8 NM, ETE 3'36''\ NAME: Carrington Point\ Once at Santa Rosa island, follow the coastline Northeast until you reach the northernmost point on the island: Carrington Point.
4) Heading 168, 2.4 NM, ETE 1'0''\ NAME: Bechers Bay Airport (KISS)\ Carrington Point defines the Northwest end of Bechers Bay. South of Carrington Point is Bechers Bay Airport (KISS), and your destination for this leg. Make sure to re-fuel your aircraft here.

Leg 5 - Island Hopping

FROM: KISS\ TO: KNSI\ Date: DEC 22, 2020\ Time: ~7:40 AM\ Weather: Scattered Clouds\ Flight Time: 34'
For the fifth leg, we will explore Santa Cruz Island, the Anacapa Islands, and San Nicolas Island.
Scenery:\ Santa Cruise Island: \ Anacapa Islands:
1) Heading 045, 7 NM, ETE 2'36''\ NAME: Santa Cruz Island\ Take off from Bechers Bay Airport and make heading 045 towards Santa Cruz Island, aiming for the left end of the island.
2) Heading 098, 11 NM, ETE 4'6''\ NAME: Canyon Branch\ When you get to the island, you'll notice a mountain range running to the east. Follow this range, keeping the ridge-line on your left. You will soon enter a valley that slopes upward (fly low for a challenge, but not too low!). Keep inside the valley as you crest a ridge and start heading downwards again. There is a dried-up river that runs down the valley; follow it until you reach some buildings. Here, look for a small canyon that branches off to the left.

2020.08.20 17:47 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters ‘W-Z’ in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters ‘W-Z’ under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letter M on July 20, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters N-Q on July 27, 2020. You can check that out here ( There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I posted letter R on July 29, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letter S on August 7, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters T-V on August 13, 2020. You can check that out here (
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here:
Wachtmeister, Eric: Swedish Internet entrepreneur. He was the founder of the now defunct social media website, A Small World. The Weinstein Company, Robert Pittman, and Alexander von Furstenberg were all heavy investors and are all listed in Epstein’s black book (check out previous threads for further information). Early in his career, Wachtmeister was an investment banker who worked for Rothschild & Co. and Lehman Brothers. His father was Count Wilhelm Wachtmeister, a Swedish diplomat, ambassador to the United States, and close friend of George H.W. Bush.
Wagner, David: Not enough info.
Wainwright, Rupert: British movie director and producer.
Waksal, Sam: Pharmaceutical entrepreneur and CEO. Despite the nerdy sounding job description, Waksal hobnobs with celebrities. He dated Martha Stewart’s daughter, is a friend of Ronald Perelman’s ex-wife, and counts Mick Jagger among his friends ( In 2002 and 2003, Waksal pleaded guilty to securities fraud, bank fraud, obstruction of justice, perjury, conspiracy, and wire fraud. He was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2003. He was released in 2009.
Wallace, Mike: Television journalist best known for his role as lead correspondent on the news program 60 Minutes. Longtime 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager, was forced to step down from his position after Ronan Farrow’s article in The New Yorker that mentioned Fager’s sexual misconduct ( towards Sarah Johansen, an intern at the time (now a producer) who said that the atmosphere of 60 Minutes was like that of a “boy’s club.” Epstein hosted a reception for Wallace at his NYC mansion back in 1997 ( Wallace can be seen in this photo (date uncertain, but must have been 1991 or earlier) with Robert Maxwell (Ghislaine’s father) and Donald Trump (
Walters, Barbara: Famous television personality/broadcast journalist known for 20/20, The View, and berating Corey Feldman for trying to “damage an entire industry” when he came out against pedophilia in Hollywood ( Walters goes way back with Ghislaine and her family, as she swam around the same social circles as Ghislaine’s father, Robert Maxwell ( Here is a picture from Steve Forbes’s 70th birthday party ( that shows Barbara walking just behind Robert Maxwell. Barbara is pictured here ( with Ghislaine and some others (7th picture down). We can only wish her the most agonizing of deaths.
Ward, Kevin: A 34-year veteran of the NYPD who was eventually promoted to Borough Commander. Currently the Vice President of Security and Operations for Bryant Park Corporation. Received a Master’s Degree from Harvard, which is extremely rare for a law enforcement official. It’s odd that Epstein would have three different telephone numbers for such a decorated member of law enforcement. Interesting.
Warner, Ozzie: No info found.
Warnford-Davis, Ms Mandy: The former sister-in-law of Ghislaine’s brother, Kevin. Kevin and his wife, Pandora, divorced after more than 20 years of marriage. Mandy is Pandora’s sister. She works as a lawyer in London.
Wasserman, Casey & Laura: Casey is an entertainment and sports agent executive. Grandson of Hollywood mogul and mafia-linked Lee Wasserman. Laura Zifren is Casey’s wife. She is a movie music supervisor. Casey and Laura both appear on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” flight log ( during the infamous Africa trip which featured the likes of Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Chris Tucker. Casey donates a lot of time and money to the Clinton Foundation and considers Bill Clinton to be a close friend and his philanthropic “mentor” ( The Wassermans have donated between $10 and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation ( The Wassermans have set up a charity called The Wasserman Foundation through which they donate money to a number of different causes, including several children’s groups (
Wassong, David: Managing Director for Soros (yes, that Soros) Fund Management who has worked for Soros for over 20 years ( Here’s a lovely picture ( of Wassong with Ghislaine Maxwell from 2011. There’s nothing weird about it except for Ghislaine’s eye-catching earrings, which bare a striking resemblance to pedophile symbolism ( David’s father, Dan, was a chronic sexual harasser of his secretaries ( Perhaps sexual deviancy runs in the family.
Wastnage, Lucy: Wife of David Tang. Already listed earlier under ‘Tang, Mr David and Lucy Wastnag.’ Copy and pasted from my ‘T-V’ thread… David was a Hong Kong businessman who founded the Shanghai Tang fashion chain and several restaurants that attract the elite. Tang was a philanthropist who was involved in several charities, including Youth Outreach (YO), a charitable organization started in Hong Kong by Reverend Peter Newberry. This charity’s goal was to help at-risk youths ( Tang was considered one of the most well-connected people in London. He and his wife, Lucy, counted Prince Andrew, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York (Prince Andrew’s ex-wife), Kevin Spacey, the Duke of Marlborough, and Mick Jagger among their friends ( Tang vehemently defended Prince Andrew in 2011 when his relationship with Epstein was made public ( Two years later, Ghislaine celebrated her 51st birthday at China Tang, David’s restaurant at the Dorchester Hotel. Despite the backlash Prince Andrew received for counting Epstein among his friends, he attended Ghislaine’s birthday, along with former Labour minister Shaun Woodward and wife Camilla, the Earl and Countess of Derby, Dorrit Moussaieff, the diamond heiress/wife of the president of Iceland, Tamara Beckwith, and John Eliasch, multi-millionaire boss of sports firm Head. Every single one of those people appear in Epstein’s contacts. Epstein had 16 phone numbers, two email addresses, and three street addresses listed under David and Lucy’s names. David Tang died in 2017.
Waterman, Felicity: Model and actress who was a client of Elite Modeling Agency, along with Epstein/Maxwell pals Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum and many other famous models.
Watson, Victoria: Secretary at De Cadenet Motor Racing Limited (, a company owned by former race car driver Alain de Cadenet, who was listed earlier in Epstein’s black book.
Webb, Veronica: Supermodel. Former Victoria’s Secret (Les Wexner) model.
Weidenfeld, Lord: Founder of Weidenfeld and Nicolson publishing company. Weidenfeld (1919-2016) was a tremendous supporter of Israel and Oxford University. Weidenfeld was close friends with the Rothschilds. For more info on Weidenfeld’s deep-rooted connection with the Rothschilds and Israel, check out this wonderful Youtube video ( It’s very well-researched and connects all the dots. Other high-ranking friends of Weidenfeld included German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former U.S. Secretary of State (and should-be war criminal) Henry Kissinger.
Weinberg, Jason: Top Hollywood talent manager who represents some of the biggest names in movies and television. Weinberg held his 50th birthday at a restaurant in Easthampton, NY ( Attendees included Harvey Weinstein and actress Uma Thurman, the ex-fiance of ARK Academy founder and possible pedophile and child trafficker, Arpad Busson. Weinberg has been pictured with Peggy Siegal, the publicist who helped Epstein get into elite parties after he was convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution. They likely know each other because they were both trained by legendary Hollywood publicist Bobby Zarem.
Weinstein, Bob: Bob is Harvey Weinstein’s brother and a top movie producer and Hollywood executive. Bob has denied any knowledge of his brother’s seemingly endless sexual harassment charges and has publicly rebuked Harvey. Bob has been accused of harassment by Amanda Segel, a female showrunner (
Weintraub, Harriet: Founder of public relations firm HWPR ( Was once in business with Epstein enabler Peggy Siegal (
Westheimer, Ruth Dr: Better known as Dr. Ruth, the popular sex therapist and TV personality.
Weymouth, Mrs Lally: Senior associate editor of The Washington Post. Eldest child of Katherine Graham, the publisher who ran her family’s newspaper, The Washington Post, from 1963-1991. Lally is best known for throwing huge bipartisan parties at her house in the Hamptons. This article ( does a great job of detailing who goes to these parties (ex: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner partying with George Soros, Soros partying with David Koch, etc) and the fact that behind closed doors, the same people who publicly insult each other from both sides of the aisle, are actually friends and just laughing at us for believing their theatrics. AGAIN, THE WHOLE IDEA OF PARTISANSHIP IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT. STOP ALIGNING WITH ONE SIDE. IT’S US VS. THEM. THAT’S IT.
White, Somers: Former model and advertising executive. Married to Jonathan Farkas, heir to the Alexander’s department stores fortune. Named to the Commission on Presidential Scholars by Donald Trump in 2019. Pictured here ( with Ghislaine Maxwell.
White, Victoria: Former wife of Lord Gordon White, Texas businessman Tom O’Gara, and famed Hollywood producer Robert Evans.
White, Michael: Likely the theatemovie producer or the British journalist who was the associate editor of The Guardian until 2016 and a regular commentator on BBC. Could be either one.
White O’Gara, Victoria: See Victoria White above.
Whitworth, Alan & Wendy: Wendy Whitworth is a managing editor with ties to Ghislaine and her family. She was managing editor of Remembering for the Future: The Holocaust in An Age of Genocide, an assortment of Holocaust-centered articles, which was released in 2001. Ghislaine Maxwell’s mother, Elisabeth, was the editor-in-chief of the publication. Ghislaine and her sisters, Isabel and Christine, are listed as financial sponsors and committee coordinator ( The honorary president of the publication is Elie Wiesel, the famous authoHolocaust survivor who also appears in Epstein’s book and was also accused of sexual harassment. I believe her husband Alan is an economic adviser, but I’m not entirely sure.
Wiatt, Jim: Former CEO at William Morris, a major talent agency.

Rothschild Assurance, which later became St. James’s Place Wealth Management, along with Jacob Rothschild ( Mark was the honorary treasurer of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and still had a role as one of the Vice Presidents as of 2012 (, making this the 12 billionth connection between known pedophile and child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and the NSPCC.
Wiesel Dr Eli and Marion: Wiesel was a famous author, Holocaust survivor, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, but he also supposedly sexually harassed a teenager at a charity event ( Wiesel had longstanding ties to the Maxwell family due to their mutual interest in writing about the Holocaust (, ( Marion is also a Holocaust survivor and was Elie’s wife.
Wigram Lionel and Lydia: Lionel is a producer who has worked on the Harry Potter films and several Guy Ritchie movies. Lydie is his wife.

Heseltine was a friend of Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s father. Heseltine invested in Conservative Parliament member Harvey Proctor’s business after Proctor was forced to resign after it was revealed he had sexual relationships with and took nude pictures of male prostitutes aged 17-21 at his home (source: At the time, it was illegal to have same-sex relations with prostiutes under the age of 21. Her siblings, Annabel and Rupert, were listed in Epstein’s book as well. Check out the G-I thread for more info on them. Nick is her husband and the owner of Holloway’s auctioneers.
Williams-Ellis, David & Serena: David is a world-renowned British sculptor. His ex-wife, Serena, is an interior designer.
Willis, Rebecca: Not sure. Could be a climate change/environmental researcher in the UK.
Wilmot-Sitwell, Alex & Fi: Alex is a banker who was CEO of UBS Investment Bank and headed Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s businesses across Europe until 2018. Bank of America Merrill Lynch, incidentally, was the “largest corporate sponsor” for the super shady ARK Academy ( under Wilmot-Sitwell. ARK Academy, founded by Arpad Busson (listed in Epstein’s book - read more on him here:, could very well be a system of schools used for child abuse and child trafficking. Caroline Fiona Marr is Alex’s ex-wife.
Wilson, Carter: Barely any info found. Her name is Carter Wilson Hailey. This was her mother ( Despite the family names/history, I couldn’t find anything on who Carter Wilson actually is.

2020.08.08 02:18 Initial_Breakthrough From Birth To Leadership/Power (Abridged)

(Don’t take this as truth. Use this to start to finding your truth. We are the light.)
Angela Merkel (Kasner), Chancellor of Germany, is the daughter of Adolf Hitler and Eva Hitler (Braun), Hitler’s wife. Born April 20, 1954. On paper it says she was born July 17, 1954. Born in Hamburg, Germany. It’s documented in the Soviet KGB archives and the GDR files. It’s also written in the journal of a man known as Dr. Karl Klauberg, other wise known as the ‘Angel of Death’. It is documented that Dr. Klauberg had taken samples of different men’s sperm, including Hitlers, and froze them. Later he artificially inseminated Eva Hitler. After the birth of Angela, agreement between the Soviets, the Americans and the Vatican was arranged. Hitler's baby was placed under the ‘control’ of the Catholic Church. She was given a false date of birth, July 17, and the name Angela Dorothea Kasner, daughter of Horst Kasner, a Lutheran pastor, and his wife, Herlind - an English and Latin teacher.
Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, is the son of Fidel Castro and Margaret Trudeau. Born on December 25, 1971. Born in Ottawa Canada. On paper Pierre Trudeau is the father of Justin. It’s known that Margaret, Justin’s mom, was nearly 3 decades younger then Pierre. She was also known as the ‘The Holy Golightly of the Mounties’ for many adventures dancing at clubs such as Studio 54 and infamously had alliances with celebrities such as actors Ryan O’Neal and Jack Nicholson in the 1970’s. It is said that Pierre and Margaret Trudeau had not visited Cuba till 1976, this then forming a friendship that lasted through the 1970’s and 1980’s. But it is documented and photographed that Margaret Trudeau and Fidel Castro are seen together sometime in 1972 while Fidel is holding a baby boy. Pierre and Margaret Trudeau divorced in 1984. Justin Trudeau also has also praised Castro in the wake of the communist tyrants death.
Barbara Bush (Pierce), First Lady to the 41st President, George H. W. Bush, is the daughter of Aleister Crowley. Born on June 8, 1925 in Flushing, Queens, New York. It is known that Barbara’s mother was Pauline Pierce (Robinson) and, on paper, her father being Marvin Pierce. Aleister Crowley is a widely known infamous British occultist, who started the religion of Thelema. Declared the ‘Wickedest Man in the World’, was a satanist practicing Sex Magick and other satanic rituals and at one point wrote how he successfully conjured the demon Bartzabel. It is known that Aleister Crowley was acquainted with Pauline Pierce in the 1920’s, during the same time he was spending most of his time practicing Sex Magick. In Crowley’s journal it is noted that Pauline Pierce ended up participating in one of these rituals with Crowley. Specifically, an exercise in "Eroto Comatose Lucidity”. Although there’s no direct evidence to support this claim, it is well known knowledge that Pauline was involved in Crowley’s social circle at this time.

2020.08.08 01:38 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of the letter ‘S’ in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of the letter ‘S’ under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letter M on July 20, 2020. You can check that out here (
I posted letters N-Q on July 27, 2020. You can check that out here ( There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I posted letter R on July 29, 2020. You can check that out here (
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here:
Sacco, Amy: Nightclub mastermind behind Bungalow 8 and many other clubs. Listing her list of connections would take too long because her clubs are always hot spots for celebrities and the elite. The NY Times wrote a decent article ( about Sacco’s clubs and clientele. Sacco has been photographed with Ghislaine, India Hicks, and Sophie Dahl, all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book (
Sachs, Jeffrey: Naming all of his titles would be an endeavor in itself. Sachs is a very influential figure who is best known for being an economist, an adviser to the United Nations, and a University Professor at Columbia University. Sachs serves on the Council on Foreign Relations, where Epstein served from 1995-2009. It is unclear whether he was there at the same time as Epstein, although given his popularity and influence, especially in the early 2000s, I would be surprised if he wasn’t around then.
Saffra, Edmund: Billionaire banker and alleged money launderer with tons of enemies who died under very mysterious circumstances in 1999. The official story was that one of his nurses - in an attempt to gain favor with Safra by saving him from danger - intentionally started a small fire in Safra’s home, which soon spiraled out of control, causing Safra to lock himself in the bathroom and suffocate to death. This article ( does a good job of pointing out that Safra had many enemies, was a shady character, and was absolutely obsessed with security for himself and his family. It seems odd that Safra would allow his security detail (Mossad vets) to leave his home that night. This article ( from The Guardian includes a statement from Ted Maher’s (the nurse who was convicted of starting the fire) wife, stating that he was coerced into signing a confession. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night who is also listed in Epstein’s contacts, was a good friend of Safra’s.
Safro, Wayne: Financial advisor.
Said, Wafic: Financier and businessman. Said is the Chairman of a children’s charity called the Said Foundation, where Prince Charles’s former private secretary, Sir Michael Peat GVCO, serves on the board of trustees ( The charity helps underprivileged children from the Middle East. Said has also contributed a lot of money to Prince Charles’s The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund, which, among other things, is dedicated to helping children.
Sainsbury, Mr Jamie: Descendant of the founder of the Sainsbury grocery chain. Old friend of Ghislaine Maxwell ( James’s sister, Camilla, was married to British MP, Shaun Woodward, for 28 years. Camilla and Shaun are Trustees of The Woodward Charitable Trust, which helps disadvantaged children, women, and families (
Salama, Eric: Former CEO of Kantar consulting firm. Also served as a Trustee for the British Museum (2000-2008). Survived a carjacking after getting stabbed last year (
Saltzman, Elizabeth: Contributing editor to Vanity Fair and Vogue, two of the three publications (along with Tatler) that continuously show up among Epstein’s contacts. Saltzman is also a celebrity fashion stylist with clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Saoirse Ronan, Stella McCartney, and Uma Thurman, the ex-wife of Arpad Busson, who is possibly one of the key players in this pedophile ring ( Andre Balazs, the hotelier who also seems to be embroiled in this whole fiasco held a party in 1995. Those in attendance included Ghislaine Maxwell, Katie Ford, and Elizabeth Saltzman (, all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book. In fact, Saltzman is a long-time friend of Ghislaine ( This article also reveals that Ghislaine was introduced to Prince Andrew by the Duchess of York (Sarah Ferguson), and, even more telling, that Epstein was suspected of having Mossad ties when the article was written in 2000.

  1. "When I was 8, I left some dollar bills in my pants pocket and put them through the wash. When I realized what I'd done, I ran crying to my grandparents, saying I was going to be arrested and thrown in jail for 'money laundering.'"
  2. "My dad was watching America's Most Wanted once, and he told me that a serial killer was someone who jumped out of your cereal box and killed you. I didn't eat cereal for a good year."
  3. "When I was little, I thought that very tiny people worked the streetlights; they had shifts and their job was to sit in that light and decide when to turn it green."
  4. "I thought assault and battery was a crime someone committed against your car because I thought they were saying 'salt in battery.'"
  5. "When I was little, I thought that people who died in movies actually died and had signed up to be killed for the scene."
  6. "I thought the road sign 'No Outlet' meant that the houses in that area didn't have electric outlets. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why someone would want to live there."
  7. "When I was a kid, I somehow got it into my head that everyone had a limited amount of blood at birth, and that once you ran out, kaput. I would get so scared every time I scraped my knees!"
  8. "My younger brother thought 'The Star-Spangled Banner' began with, 'Jose, can you see?' He was in sixth grade when I finally corrected him."
  9. "When I was 9 years old, I feigned being sick at school so I could go home and watch TV. When the school nurse asked me what was wrong, I confidently replied, 'Morning sickness.' Her eyes went wide, and it took me a decade to figure out why."
  10. "I thought drinking and driving meant any type of drink, so I would always get nervous when my parents drank a Coke or water while driving."
  11. "When I was 5, I thought my poop was brown because I'm Black. My mom is white, and I remember asking her if her poop came out lighter."
  12. "In the '90s, I'd heard Barbara Bush referred to as the 'first lady,' so I looked up her birth date to learn when humanity spawned. My answer was sometime around 1925."
  13. "I remember when I was young and we were learning about how mixing two different-colored crayons made a third color. Well, I thought it applied to everything in life, so I assumed that if a Black and a white person had a baby together, the baby would be Hispanic."
  14. "As a kid, I totally thought the world was in black and white until the 'invention' of color because of all the black-and-white pictures I'd seen."
  15. "I thought 'Custody' was a town where they took all the bad people. News reports always said, 'The criminal was reprimanded and taken into custody,' and I remember wondering where that was, and hoping it wasn't near where I lived."
  16. "When I was a kid, I thought the 'black market' was a place. I pictured it as a dimly lit mall that people went to after dark."
  17. "I grew up in Florida, and I remember noticing the food labels that used the term 'FL oz.' and wondering why each state had its own form of ounces, and if 'Florida ounces' were bigger than 'Georgia ounces.'"
  18. "When I was a kid, I thought Jesus got crucified every year on Good Friday and that they kept killing him because he kept coming back on Easter. I felt really sorry for him and wondered why he didn't just stop coming around, considering he knew what was going to happen."
  19. "As a child, I always thought commercials were shown live, and I was so confused when I saw kids in them when I was home sick, like, How are they allowed to constantly miss school?"
  20. "I'd heard the name 'succotash' countless times when I was a kid, and I thought it was just a vegetable I hadn't seen before...
  21. "When I was little, I thought that in the Christmas song 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing,' the singers were all angels named Harold."
  22. "I thought that actors on TV shows had to run between sets if they were on two shows that aired one right after the other. For example, if Jessie aired right before Radio Rebel, I thought Debby Ryan would have to run between sets to make it in time."
  23. "I knew a girl in high school who thought the sculptures on Mount Rushmore were natural formations."

  • Bret Hart was seriously injured in a bicycle accident in Calgary last week. As of press time, Dave has very little info. Hart was thrown off the bike and flipped over the handlebars going at a high speed and landed on his back and hit the back of his head. Over the next couple of days, he's undergone a number of tests due to issues he's had since the accident. Bret was forced to retire 2 years ago after he suffered a serious concussion during the Starrcade 99 match with Goldberg and it's believed the fall may have aggravated the issues he's had since then. Hart is expected to be hospitalized for at least a week and has little movement on the left side of his body and can't see out of his right eye. He's also suffering severe back pain, though x-rays and scans haven't shown any physical damage to his back. That's all Dave knows right now. (Much more on this next week, obviously).
  • After a year of questionable decision-making, Vince McMahon made his most questionable decision yet when he announced the surprise re-hiring of Vince Russo. It's a shocking decision for lots of obvious reasons, not the least of which is most of the wrestlers either outright don't like him or at the very least, don't respect him. And many front office employees feel even more strongly about him. Not even Stephanie McMahon, who is the head of creative, knew Russo was coming back and she was just as blindsided by the news as everyone else. It's believed the deal has been in the works for a few weeks. Russo had owned a CD store in Marietta, GA but he sold the store recently. He also stopped submitting ideas to the Jarretts for TNA a couple of weeks ago. There's also the fact that Russo's lawsuit against Hulk Hogan over the Bash at the Beach 2000 incident is still pending and now they're in the same company again, although Dave suspects the legal issues must be wrapped up for Russo to take the job (Turner was still paying his legal fees so long as he didn't work for any other wrestling company, which is why everyone was denying his involvement with TNA). Another rumor going around is that Russo is planning to write a tell-all book about his time in WWF and when word about that got out, the company rehired him in an effort to squash the book. Dave thinks that might be believable if Russo was just hired and stuck in a closet somewhere. But he was brought back in a key position in the creative department, which means that likely wasn't the reason (or not a big part of it). Most likely, it's exactly what it appears on the surface: Vince McMahon is getting desperate and he's going back to what worked in the past.
  • When word got out about Russo's hiring, needless to say, everyone was shocked and, as you'd expect, it was an overwhelmingly negative reaction. The plan for Russo on day one was for him to be in control of the creative team, answering only to Stephanie McMahon. The next day, those plans changed after McMahon, Russo, Stephanie, and the rest of the writing team had a big meeting. There's been multiple stories about what happened during the meeting. One version of the story is that Russo's ideas were so bad that he pretty much buried himself with everyone immediately. Another version is that Stephanie pretty much buried all his ideas and shut him down. And yet another version is that Russo obviously hadn't kept up with the product and was unfamiliar and out of touch with many of the characters and ongoing storylines, and that soured Vince McMahon on him. Regardless, the result was the same: the very next day, Russo was no longer part of the creative team. Word is he has already been sent home and will be brought back if/when they need ideas, as sort of a consultant on retainer. Officially, his role now is to critique the TV shows and report back to Vince McMahon what he thinks. So he's basically paid to be a critic and tell McMahon how he would do it better. Anyway, that's the story for now. Dave runs down Russo's history in the business, how he came into power in WWF, jumping ship to WCW with no notice, where he proceeded to help kill the company and all the drama that happened there (can't wait for that one Vince Russo superfan that always accuses me of lying about him to chime in on this one).
  • For the record, one of Russo's big ideas for TNA's debut was taking the Shane Twins and dressing them up as giant penises and calling them the Big Johnsons. Thankfully, when the show aired, the announcers downplayed the "penis" aspect of it a lot, leading Russo to tell friends that the idea flopped because the commentators didn't sell it hard enough. Just in case you're wondering what Vince Russo is bringing to the table in 2002.
  • WWE's King of the Ring is in the books. For the first time since Wrestlemania, it was a legit sellout on PPV. And sucks for them because this was a pretty blah show. Undertaker retained the WWE title over Triple H in a bad match that was hampered because Undertaker is banged up in general and Triple H came into the match with an elbow injury. 2 days after the show, he underwent elbow surgery to remove bone chips, one of which was embedded in cartilage and had caused his arm to lock up. He was nowhere near 100% during the match, but if he had been, Dave suspects they probably would have put the belt back on him. But for now, they stuck with Undertaker. They did a post match angle to set up Rock vs. Undertaker vs. Triple H at Vengeance, assuming Triple H is ready by then (he was not).
  • The biggest story of the PPV, in Dave's opinion anyway, is the Kurt Angle/Hulk Hogan match, in which Angle beat Hogan clean as a sheet by submission. Dave gives Hogan credit: he didn't treat this like Kidman. Hogan put Angle over as strong as he possibly could. Dave believes it's the first time in Hogan's entire career that he lost via submission as a babyface. He did have a few submission losses as a heel (once to Inoki in NJPW in 1981 and a handful in WCW during the NWO era) but that's it. If he had any as a babyface, it would have been before 1979, before he was a national name. Whether this ultimately springboards Angle into a certified top guy that fans take seriously remains to be seen, but Hogan did everything he could. Probably didn't help that, as soon as the match was over, Angle put his goofy wig back on, at a moment that should have been used to turn him into a serious threat. But regardless, nobody can fault Hogan here if it doesn't get over.
  • Other notes from the PPV: Jericho vs. RVD in the opening match was easily the best match on the show. Lesnar got loud "Goldberg" chants and Dave thinks he sold way too much for Test, especially since the rumor is Lesnar is being groomed for a Summerslam main event with Rock. Nidia in her hillbilly gimmick with Jamie Noble was great and Dave thinks they might have something with Nidia and this gimmick. Ric Flair vs. Eddie Guerrero was.....not what you'd think. Dave has seen Flair drag talentless hacks to great matches for 20 years but somehow, Flair vs. Guerrero was a drag and should have been better than it was considering the two men involved. Two all-time greats just had a misfire somehow. Molly won the women's title from Trish and Dave thinks this whole storyline where they claim Molly is fat is insulting to probably every single female viewer they have and a lot of the males too. A backstage segment with Rock, Goldust, and Booker T was the most entertaining thing on the show. Lesnar won the King of the Ring tournament by beating RVD in a nothing match. And of course, the main event, which was an overbooked mess with two guys who probably didn't have any business wrestling that night anyway.
WATCH: Goldust/Booker T/Rock backstage segment at WWE King of the Ring 2002
  • NWA-TNA's debut show is in the books! Actually, so is their second show because it was a double-taping. And buckle in because we have a metric fuck-ton of TNA news to cover. Overall, it was a well-received debut. A lot of the young wrestlers were hungry and some of the old guys worked like they had something to prove. Guys like Konnan and Buff Bagwell looked the best they have in years and many of the people who worked the show said this felt like the real deal (many of those same people had worked the recent WWA shows and saw those as paid vacations, nobody took it seriously). Scott Hall, said to be the highest paid wrestler in the company ($3,500 per week) didn't do anything special but he got by far the biggest reaction and, according to all accounts, was sober and professional. There were about 3,000 fans in the building, but only 400-500 were paid. More than 10,000 freebies were given away around Birmingham the week of the show, but the crowd they got was actually a good, active audience, so it worked. Mike Tenay on commentary was great and full of knowledge, though Ed Ferrara playing heel announcer was useless. Don West was enthusiastic as hell, but knew nothing about the product. Regardless, he knows how to work a camera and he took charge of the commentary booth and Dave thinks he did fine in the role and will only get better. Ricky Steamboat was there, giving an emotional interview and putting over the NWA title. Ken Shamrock won the gauntlet battle royal (basically the same thing as a Royal Rumble match) to win the title, beating Malice (former WCW wrestler The Wall) in the final match after they were the last 2 left in the battle royal. There's been talk of doing a Shamrock vs. Don Frye match to try to catch some of that crossover UFC/PRIDE audience, but Dave is doubtful it'll be a draw here like it is in Japan.
  • What else? Country music star Toby Keith did a series of angles with Jeff Jarrett and Keith was by far the biggest star to the live fans. Keith got involved in the battle royal and eliminated Jarrett. NASCAR drivers Hermie Sadler and Sterling Martin got involved in a racial angle with K-Krush (R-Truth) using a bunch of "your kind" and "my kind" talk and Dave thinks that was pretty pathetic. The company was hoping all this celebrity involvement would get them some mainstream publicity but it got practically none. They brought in a bunch of women, most of whom were total unknowns except for ECW's Francine, Electra, and former WCW valet Daffney under the name Shannon, and their battle royal on the second show was said to be awful. The whole event definitely had a southern/regional feel to it. The opening match of Jerry Lynn, AJ Styles, and Low-Ki vs. Jorge Estra, Sonny Siaki, and Jimmy Yang was the show-stealer and was better than most of the matches in WWE this year.
  • Now the bad news: TNA was under the impression they had Dish Network cleared to air their show, but no dice. They don't have Cablevision in the U.S. either. For a company that needs to draw 50,000 buys a week to break even without a corporate sponsor, that's extremely bad news. They're also losing their Canadian PPV after the response to the debut show was said to be lackluster. At press time, InDemand has allegedly told TNA that their debut show did 80,000 buys but preliminary numbers are always drastically higher than the final result, so it'll almost certainly be less than that (for example, InDemand's number for WWA's first PPV was originally 40,000 but later got revised to 15,000). In WWE, they don't take any PPV numbers seriously at first because the thought is any numbers you hear within the first 2 months of the show are always wrong, the final tallies take time to come in. Regardless, even if this show did well, the more important question is how will they be doing in 4-5 weeks when the new has worn off?
  • Despite TNA claiming they aren't even interested in TV and are 100% committed to running exclusively on PPV, that's obviously not true. They have already struck syndication deals in Nashville and Chattanooga and are actively working to get a national television deal. The problem is that, as you can tell by looking at WWE ratings over the last year, the business is in a sharp decline, meaning the TV industry isn't chomping at the bit to give TV deals to some new startup nobody company. But anyone who understands the industry knows they have no chance of surviving on weekly PPV alone so getting on TV sooner than later is going to be essential to TNA's survival. The local syndicated deals they struck will mostly be hype shows with interviews and highlights designed to drive viewers to buy the weekly PPVs. Dave lists, like, 10 different promotions that have folded over the years in part due to the costs of paying for television.
  • Tons of TNA news in this issue which brings us to the debut "Random TNA News & Notes" section! Here we go: Bert Prentice will be working with the company and will no longer be running his own weekly shows in Nashville. There will be a one-night tournament at the next show to crown NWA tag team champions. Fun fact, those belts are currently held by The Shane Twins, who now wrestle in TNA as The Johnsons, doing the aforementioned masked penis gimmick. They'll be in the tournament even though they were already the champs in their previous gimmick. But the titles are being vacated and they will crown new ones.
  • We ain't done with TNA news. The dark match of the show featured a 450 pound dude named Cheex who is basically ripping off Rikishi's gimmick of doing things with his big ol' ass. And in case the ass gimmick and the "Cheex" name wasn't clear enough, he's being managed by a woman named Brown Eye Girl. So....yeah. If this ain't Vince Russo, I'll eat my shoe. Anyway, during the dark match, because Cheex is so big, the ring broke. As the show was going on the air live, the ring crew was frantically struggling to fix the ring, which is why it felt like they were stalling so much for the first 15 minutes. Because they were. The ring breaking also caused them to not be able to do the second dark match they had planned. Both matches were being taped to air on next week's show.
  • Actual notes from TNA's debut show (I'm gonna divide this into multiple paragraphs because there's a lot): it opened with some pyro, which is meant to make them look major league, but everyone else always looks minor league compared to WWE's huge pyro show every week and this was no exception. No graphics or details on any of the wrestlers, which is a mistake considering so many of them are complete unknowns to most fans. Started with a bunch of legends coming out to put over the NWA title, including Ricky Steamboat cutting one of the best promos of the year in any promotion and Dave thinks they need to hire Steamboat and put him in an on-air role as a commissioner or something ASAP. Jeff Jarrett cut a promo saying it was stupid to crown a new champion in a battle royal. Way to bury your own main event 10 minutes into your debut show, especially since most people also agree that it's a pretty dumb way to do it. But they still did. Then Ken Shamrock and Scott Hall came out and they both cut promos and they also shat on the battle royal idea, leading Dave to worry already that this company hasn't learned anything from WCW's mistakes. As mentioned earlier, the opening match easily stole the show. Next up was a little person match, with the jobber actually being referred to as "an enhancement midget." The Shane Twins did the penis gimmick, but as mentioned, it was severely played down from the original idea as conceived by Russo.
  • More notes from the show: They brought out a bunch of women for a big segment and Dave, who spends his entire life watching wrestling, didn't know half of them. And even if he did, it wouldn't matter because there were no graphics to name any of them and even if there had been, the cameras were often showing the wrong woman when a name was announced. Anyway, among them were Francince from ECW (who Dave is worried about because she looked sickly thin), Shannon (formerly Daffney in WCW), Alexis Laree (better known years later as Mickie James), Elektra from ECW, Taylor Vaugn (formerly Barbara Bush in WWF), Erin (who was a finalist on Tough Enough season 1 but got booted from the show before production started because other contestants saw her out on a date with one of the judges and they complained and got her kicked off), and some others. At least one of the no-name chicks was a stripper they hired specifically for this show because they needed one more woman to make 10. Anyway, this all led to the expected brawl with Elektra getting her shirt ripped off to show her bra. It wasn't even that risque. If you're trying to use sex appeal to draw viewers, the worst thing you can do is be less risque than WWE is on free TV when you have the luxury of PPV (give em a few months and we'll get actual nudity on this show). Alicia Webb, formerly known in WWF as Ryan Shamrock (and who is dating Ken Shamrock in real life) was playing a prostitute collecting money from referee Mark Johnson.
  • Even more notes from the show: the NASCAR guys got a bigger pop than any of the wrestlers. K-Krush came out to confront them about not being real athletes and they did the racial angle. Brian Christopher got involved and funny story there, they were debating whether to use the last name Christopher, or his real last name of Lawler. Nobody told the announcers which it was gonna be so Mike Tenay kept using "Christopher" while Ed Ferrara kept using "Lawler." More WCW-level shit. Toby Keith performed. The gauntlet battle royal to crown the new champion featured Buff Bagwell, Prince Justice (later becomes Abyss), Konnan, Rick Steiner, Scott Hall, Jeff Jarrett, etc. Toby Keith ran in and suplexed Jarrett, causing him to get eliminated because why not? Chris Harris, Vampire Warrior, Steve Corino, and more. And when it got down to the last two, it became a regular match and Shamrock beat Malice to win the title with Steamboat as the special referee.
WATCH: NWA-TNA' s debut PPV (Full Show)
  • So that's the notes from the debut show. Are we done with TNA yet? Not by a long shot. They taped a whole second show, remember?! It hasn't aired yet so Dave hasn't seen it so here's the scarce details. The crowd started filing out after the first show ended and kept leaving as the second one was going, to the point that Jeremy Borash and Bert Prentice had to get on the mic and beg everyone to stay and then moved a bunch of people to the hard camera side so there wouldn't be visible empty seats all over the place. Lenny Lane and former WCW star Kwee-Wee were put together as a gay tag team called Rainbow Express, managed by Joel Gertner, and kissed each other instead of tagging each other to swap in and out during the match, which got a lot of heat because Alabama. A 9-woman battle royal (guess they didn't let the hired stripper actually work) to crown Miss TNA resulted in a bunch of women getting stripped half naked. They did a 4-way elimination match to crown the X-Division champion which was won by AJ Syles in what was said to be easily the best match of either show, with even Harley Race going on record later to say it was one of the best matches he'd ever seen. But by then, there were very few fans left in the building. And that is finally it for TNA news for now. Whew.
  • PRIDE's latest show is in the books and once again featured pro wrestlers drawing the crowd. NOAH's Yoshihiro Takayama replaced Mark Coleman in the main event (out due to injury) against Don Frye, leading to last minute interest from wrestling fans that packed the house. Frye defeated Takayama in what many are calling the best fight in the history of PRIDE. Takayama has had 3 fights in PRIDE and has lost all 3 of them, but all 3 of them were also show-stealing outright wars that, despite losing, has grown Takayama into an even bigger star. Afterward, Frye hinted at retiring from MMA and returning to NJPW full time. Dave hasn't seen this fight but it was described to him as "something out of Dragonball Z or a comic book" the way they were just throwing bombs at each other, with the crowd going insane (yeah the opening minute or so if this fight is absolute madness, video below). The show also featured Bob Sapp vs. Kiyoshi Tamura, which was a total mismatch. Tamura is a skilled MMA fighter, but Sapp outweighed him by literally almost 200 pounds and the fight was over in 11 seconds, with Sapp basically murdering him. Dave says it's clear they're trying to turn Sapp into a huge unbeatable monster psychopath and it's working. But Dave thinks it's bullshit to put fighters this mismatched against each other in real shoots. It was funny though because after what happened in Sapp's K-1 fight a few weeks ago, they made some new rules like no knees and no kicking a downed opponent, which is fine. But they also announced other rules for the fight, such as no flying sentons or splashes off the top ropes, which have never been done in an MMA fight and is utterly ridiculous (If Cormier doesn't hit Miocic with a Canadian destroyer at UFC 252 next month, what's even the point?). Another NOAH star, Takashi Suguira, lost a split decision with Daniel Gracie and Suguira had several NOAH wrestlers at ringside cheering him on. And of course, Antonio Inoki came out at intermission and did his catchphrase.
WATCH: Yoshihiro Takayama vs. Don Frye - PRIDE
  • UFC made its TV debut with a half-hour segment on Fox Sports Net's "Best Damn Sports Show Period" which featured a full Robbie Lawler vs. Steve Berger bout, as well as highlights of other fights. "Fear Factor" host Joe Rogan did commentary with Mike Goldberg and Jeff Osbourne. They aired several warnings during the show, but the violence ended up being far less brutal than most average boxing matches. The show drew a strong crowd and there's talk that this may become a regular thing on the network. They also hyped the planned Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock fight for later this year and Dave thinks TNA would be wise to get the NWA title off Shamrock before the fight, because he's going into it as the underdog. Plus, Shamrock would likely not want to risk injury or spend time flying to Nashville every week during the last few weeks of training. Wouldn't be a good look for TNA if Shamrock goes to the octagon with the NWA title belt and gets demolished by Ortiz. Also on the show, Chuck Liddell defeated Vitor Belfort in a war that catapulted Liddell into title contention and he'll likely face the winner of Shamrock/Ortiz sometime down the road.
  • Dave got his hands on a copy of Shaun Assael's new book "Sex, Lies, and Headlocks: The Real Story of Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation" even though it hasn't been released yet. Review time! The original concept for the book was to chronicle the Monday Night Wars, but just as the book was being finished, the whole business changed and since Vince became the lone survivor, the book was changed to focus on him and the WWF primarily. The book is fair and accurate for the most part. Assael didn't run from any of the controversial stories, but he also didn't sensationalize things to make them seem bigger than they were. If you're a long-time Observer reader, you already know all this stuff and could probably point out details or inconsistencies in the story, but to the average fan who hasn't been following all the behind-the-scenes stuff for the last 20 years, it's sure to be an eye-opener. Anyway, Dave recaps the book in detail, mostly just correcting things that the author got wrong but also acknowledging that this is an early review copy and some of these mistakes will be corrected before it's published and released. Otherwise, he just pokes holes in various myths and stories that are covered. The Observer was credited in the book for being one of the author's sources, specifically in regards to Dave's coverage of the steroid trial (yeah, if you haven't read it, go back and check those out. Dave actually attended the trial and his recap of it is one of the most must-read issues of the Observer in its entire history). The book pretty much ends at the death of WCW, though it does note that business has declined significantly since then. Overall, Dave says it's by far the best book on the real modern history of professional wrestling that he's ever read and is a must-read for any wrestling fan. But it's also too short (288 pages) to really get into all the detail needed to tell so many of these stories. But for what it is, best book of its type that Dave's ever read.

  • In AAA in Mexico, there's a new guy named Canibal who's gimmick is pulling his opponent's trunks down and biting them on the ass. It's too late. You already read the sentence. You can't un-know that now.
  • AJPW stars Kaz Hayashi and Kendo Kashin were supposed to be working some shows for AAA at the moment. Fun story, when they arrived in Mexico, nobody from AAA was there to meet them at the airport and nobody they called from the AAA office would answer the phone, so they basically found themselves stranded in Mexico with no idea what to do and unable to speak the language. Dave says the exact same thing happened to Great Sasuke several years ago when he went to Mexico. Anyway, last Dave heard, Hayashi and Kashin were trying to get themselves booked on some indie shows in Mexico so they can get some pictures of them working there to take back to the magazines in Japan (which was the whole reason for their trip) so they're just looking to work one or two shows and then go back home. They can't work for CMLL because that promotion has a business relationship with NJPW.
  • Last month, AAA held its 10th annual Triplemania show in Los Angeles. Here's the problem though: it was an utter flop, with embarrassing attendance and almost nobody even realizing it happened. So AAA has decided to just pretend it didn't happen and has now scheduled Triplemania X again, this time in Mexico (maybe WWE should do that next year. Since Wrestlemania was pretty much just in an empty warehouse this year, they shouldn't even acknowledge it. Just redo Wrestlemania 36 again next year and pretend it's the first time).
  • Remember the story a couple months ago about how Invader 1 (the guy who murdered Bruiser Brody) left the WWC promotion? Well, he was scheduled to return this week as a special referee for a Carlos Colon match but it ended up not happening. He said he wanted his return to be a surprise, but the story was already out on the internet that he was coming back. For what it's worth, almost none of the wrestling fans in Puerto Rico have internet (I did the research, only 17.5% of the country had internet access in 2002 and you gotta figure only a fraction of those are wrestling fans, so Dave is likely correct here) so it still would have been a surprise to probably 99% of them. But either way, Invader 1 pulled out of the show over it and still isn't back with the promotion.
  • Spanky (Brian Kendrick) won a tournament at an indie show in California to get a shot for the Zero-1/UPW unified title. That's not the important part. How it happened is the original guy who was scheduled to win ended up pulling out of the show at the last minute because his pregnant wife was overdue so he stayed behind to be with her. So they made a call to Spanky, who was in Cincinnati. He immediately packed up his car and was on the road 30 minutes after receiving the call. And didn't stop. He drove 30 hours straight, some 2,200 miles, and made it to the venue literally an hour or so before showtime and did the match. That's freakin' dedication (I think he's talked about this in a shoot interview before. Said he masturbated to stay awake and started vomiting uncontrollably halfway through the drive or something, but still made it. Madness.)
  • AJPW news: there are no truth to the rumors of a WWE/AJPW relationship, which was mentioned last week. Motoko Baba and Tenryu were at WWE's show in Hawaii to take photos for the Japanese magazines to make people think something is up, but there's nothing there. They were just visiting because Johnny Ace got them backstage. Also, the newspapers in Japan have begun reporting that Keiji Muto will take over as AJPW president when Ms. Baba retires, which confirms what Dave has been saying for months.
  • Kenta Kobashi's first match back for NOAH will be this week at Korakuen Hall. He'll be working undercard tag matches so he won't be doing too much. If you recall, he was out for over a year with knee injuries, had one match in February in which he re-injured himself again and has been out ever since.
  • Speaking of Korakuen Hall, NJPW's latest show there only drew 1,200 fans, which means the building was only half full. Just in case you're wondering how NJPW is doing in 2002. Not great.
  • Don Frye did an interview claiming Antonio Inoki is working to put together a match between himself and Mike Tyson. "Nobody is taking that seriously," Dave says.
  • Speaking of Japanese companies trying to latch on to the WWE train and speaking of lyin' ass Inoki: there have been rumors that Inoki is putting together a relationship with WWE. Not true. Inoki claimed recently that he had met with Vince McMahon about using some of WWE's undercard guys in NJPW and of starting his own promotion in the U.S. Dave says the meeting with Vince never happened and, in fact, the two men haven't gotten along or really even spoken at all in nearly 20 years.
  • More on Jesse Ventura's decision not to run for re-election as Minnesota governor. Part of the reason may be that the polls are showing he would likely lose the race. Of course, that's what the polls said last time and he shocked the world. But after 4 years in office, his popularity isn't near what it was back then, when he was the exciting outsider. Now the voters have seen what he brings to the table and they don't seem to like it too much. Ventura was already planning to make the announcement, but then the story about his son hosting parties at the governor's mansion broke, and Ventura made the announcement 2 days earlier than he'd planned. Using the criticism that his son has gotten in the media as his excuse for not running provided Ventura a good "out" but he was already planning not to run long before that story happened and the press conference had been scheduled nearly 2 weeks earlier, so take it with a grain of salt. Most likely, he saw the writing on the wall and knew he was going to lose if he ran again.
  • Notes from the latest Ring of Honor event: it was said to be an incredible show, with guys like Bryan Danielson, Low-Ki, Christopher Daniels, Spanky, Jerry Lynn, AJ Styles, and more all having amazing matches. There was a moment during the show where Scoot Andrews went to hit Christopher Daniels' valet, Lucious. But then he stopped himself and said he'd never hit a woman, but he knew somebody who would. This was a tease to bring out another female wrestler, but the crowd started chanting for Steve Austin. The show drew 450 fans and sold out the building, which is the largest crowd ROH has drawn so far.
  • Famous St. Louis Cardinal announcer Jack Buck passed away a couple weeks ago and Dave notes that Buck actually had some involvement in wrestling back in the day. He used to do radio broadcasting of Sam Muchnick's shows live for KMOX radio in the 1960s and there's even a picture somewhere out there of Giant Baba picking Buck up and holding him like a baby. (I actually just watched the 30 For 30 documentary on the McGwire/Sosa home run race and they talked about Jack Buck in there. Good times. Anyway, someone find that picture because I'm having no luck).
  • Sting is scheduled to make an appearance, but not wrestle, at an indie show Harley Race is putting together this week in St. Louis. This will be Sting's first wrestling-related appearance since WCW folded.
  • In case you're wondering what XPW and Rob Black are up to these days, allow Dave to fill you in. Black is currently doing an angle where he's pretending he had a stroke and he pisses and shits on himself all over TV. They also did a segment where wrestler GQ Money (now a producer for NXT) broke into Black's home and tried to rape his wife until somebody made the save. The next week, they showed Money supposedly raping a girl in the parking lot and leaving her for dead, and the week after, he got sprayed with raw sewage. Now they're building up to a raw sewage match, based on this rape storyline. XPW, folks.
  • Dave has some more notes on Cody Runnels, the son of Dusty Rhodes who was backstage at WWE's show in Atlanta last week. Cody is a sophomore in high school and placed 6th in the state in amateur wrestling the past year. He also plays football. He was described to Dave as having a similar physical look as Randy Orton, "but with a face like Dusty."
  • WWA's scheduled tour of Europe has been officially canceled. The German and Switzerland shows had abysmal ticket sales and pretty much had to be canceled. The show in Ireland had more than 4,000 tickets sold and would have been a success, but even so, that one show alone wasn't going to make enough money to offset the cost of the whole tour.
  • This is actually hilarious. UFC fighter Vitor Belfort and his training partner were in a taxi before the UFC show when a bunch of cops showed up and surrounded the car. Why, you ask? Well the cab driver overheard Belfort and his partner talking about "shooting at the legs" and she got scared, not knowing what they were talking about, and called the police. Seems like they got it all straightened out though.
  • Rock will be working nearly full-time on TV from now until Summerslam, at which point he's leaving for a few months to go film his next movie. He won't be on every Smackdown, but he'll be on most of them.
  • Nothing new on the Goldberg/WWE negotiations. Vince McMahon told Goldberg's agents that he will clear his schedule any time Goldberg wants to have a meeting, but Goldberg doesn't seem particularly interested. The fact that WWE rehired Russo probably won't help matters because Goldberg is one of the many who doesn't like Russo.
  • Shawn Michaels is booked to be in Kevin Nash's corner on upcoming house shows once Nash is cleared to wrestle again. There's still no plans for Shawn to wrestle, but given how depleted the WWE roster is right now, Dave is sure they'll probably start pushing him to sooner than later (Nash ends up getting injured again almost immediately, so I don't think Shawn ever did these house show appearances).

Looks like this is one of those issues where I went over the 40,000 character limit. Hit the comments below for the rest.

2020.07.13 20:21 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters G-I in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters G-I of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here ( There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here:
Gaetani, Gelasio: Count Gelasio Gaetani comes from one of the oldest families in Rome. The Gaetani (also known as Caetani) family has produced 3 popes, including Pope Boniface VIII. Gelasio is a wine specialist and vineyard owner who helps celebrities buy the most unique bottles of wine throughout the world.
Gaetani, Rufreido: Roffredo Gaetani was an Italian count, prince, and duke who died in a car crash in 2005. Roffredo came to the public’s attention when he dated Ivana Trump in the 1990s. Brother of Gelasio.
Gallman, Kuki: Kuki Gallmann is a best-selling author (5 of her books were global best sellers), poet, environmental activist, and conservationist. Owns a 98,000 acre cattle ranch in Kenya with her husband, which she turned into a conservation park.
Ganero, Mario Jr.: Where do we even begin? Mario Garnero is a Brazilian banker and entrepreneur who has been deemed the “father of the ethanol car” and is the chairman of the board and primary shareholder of Brasilinvest Group, a banking firm worth $700 million. Garnero’s connections run extremely deep. He is/has been personal friends with Jacob Rothschild, David Rockefeller, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger, Helmut Schmidt, and many others. The following website makes some startling connections between Garnero, Epstein, and others (source: Quick summary: Record producer Damon Dash (former co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z) allegedly raped a supermodel who worked for Naomi Campbell at a party thrown by Garnero (source:
Garnero has been referred to as a “Rothschild pawn” who tried to help Aecio Neves rise to power. Garnero also appointed “George Soros frontman, Arminio Fraga, who worked in Soros’ Quantum Fund, as Minister of the Economy.”
Ganoza, Esteban Juan: A Peruvian businessman who said he met Maxwell in the 1980s when he lived in New York, but denied any ties to pedophilia when his contact information was revealed to be in Epstein’s ‘Black Book.’
Garcia, Ludmila: No info found.
Gardner. Adam: No info found.
Garland, Michael: Likely the Chairman of investment firm C5 Capital, located in London.
Garson, Jeremy: Likely refers to the lawyer who is a partner at Herbert Smith Freehills who specializes in large-scale international commercial disputes. Not completely positive, though.
Gaspar, Nacho: Not sure. Could be a number of Ignazio Gaspars, all of whom are businessmen.
Gaul, Harriett: Harriett Jagger is a fashion stylist and former fashion director of Tatler, a fashion magazine owned by Conde Nast (parent company of Vogue, GQ, etc.), which has come up several times during my investigations, and Harpers. She had a daughter with property dealer Simon Gaul, the Godson of Prince Rainier of Monaco.

Gelardin, Jack: No info found. The address listed is located in Chelsea, London, and sold for over 5 million pounds in 2013.
German-Ribon, Catriona: Catriona Blampied (nee German-Ribon) is the Managing Partner, Founder, and Owner of talent agency Procure Worldwide & Procure Digital since 2016. Worked as Managing Director at Platinum Rye Entertainment, another talent agency, before that.
Gertler, Eric: A venture capitalist who served as Chairman of U.S. News & World Report, a media company most known for publishing news, consumer advice, and rankings ranging from education (top universities, high schools, etc.) to job professions, healthcare, and too many others to mention. In 2019, Governor Andrew Cuomo nominated Gertler to serve as President and CEO of Empire State Development, New York’s chief economic agency. In Epstein’s ‘Black Book,’ Privista is listed under Gertler’s name. Privista is a company that protects against identity theft. Gertler was President and CEO.

Christopher is also the grandson of Jean Paul Getty Sr. When they were married, Pia and Mark would hold A-list parties on the rooftop of their Manhattan townhouse. Their townhouse was located half a mile from Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion. Many people think that the Getty Museum in Los Angeles houses an underground base and city for the elites.
Gibbs, Emma: Former girlfriend of Prince Andrew. Gibbs was introduced to Prince Andrew by her good friend, Ghislaine Maxwell. Gibbs worked as a PR consultant.
Gibson, Caroline: Likely to be the award-winning freelance copywriter and content writer who has worked on a number of high-profile advertisements.

2020.06.24 23:25 spgbmod The A6 murder at Deadmans Hill, 1961. Motiveless random all-night carjacking by strange gunman ends in murder and rape. One surviving witness' positive identification led to one of the last hangings in Britain.

This is a case with lots of strange coincidences the deeper you dig into it, so a bit of a rabbit hole. If you wish to read a longer 4-part account, you can find it elsewhere on reddit. Abridged from Hanratty the Final Verdict by Bob Woffinden.
Tuesday August 22 1961 Evening Michael Gregsten (36) and his mistress Valerie Storie (22), drew up in a Morris Minor car outside the Old Station Inn, a public house just outside the village of Taplow. Storie drank gin and Pepsi, Gregsten had Double Diamond. They left in their Morris Minor. After going over the M4 motorway, they followed the road round to a cornfield at Dorney Reach.
They were just talking when a man tapped at the driver’s window. As Gregsten wound down the window, the intruder stuck a gun through and said, ‘This is a hold-up, I am a desperate man.’ The man got in and sat in the rear off-side seat, with his gun pointing at Gregsten’s back.
He said ‘Keep facing the front and don’t look round. You’ll be all right if you do as I tell you.’
He said he had been living rough for two days. ‘He asked Mike who he lived with, and whether I lived with my parents. He asked us if we were married, and we said no.’ He made them hand over their watches (though he later returned them) and also Gregsten’s wallet, which contained £3, and the purse from Storie’s shopping basket. Before handing it over, she adroitly removed the money - £7 – and put it in her bra. The gunman did not notice.
At about 10:30, an outside light went on at a cottage adjoining the field to the north. The gunman became momentarily agitated, but there was no prospect of anyone at that distance divining the couple’s predicament.
They then retraced their route back up the A4. One mile north of Clophill, they turned off what seemed to be a lay-by, with a strip of parking space parallel to the main road.
Throughout they had been asking him to take what he wanted but just to leave and not shoot them. When they finally stopped, he said, ‘If I was going to shoot you, I would have done it before now.’ . In the front passenger footwell there was a green and white duffel bag containing laundry. The man told Gregsten to pass it back. He instantaneously fired two shots. ‘There was a terrific noise and a smell of gunpowder of something.’ Said Storie. ‘Mike fell forward over the steering-wheel and I could see the blood pouring out of his head.’
Storie screamed,’ You shot him, you bastard, why did you do that?’ The man replied, ‘He frightened me, he moved too quick.’ Storie pressed him to allow her to fetch a doctor. The man replied, ‘be quiet, will you, I am thinking.’ I thought he was slightly round the twist.
He asked me my name and told me to get in the back of the car with him. I said ‘No.’ He then asked her to go and sit in the back with him. Again she refused; again he pressed her, finally making the same threat: ‘I will count to five and if you have not got in I will shoot.’ She had no choice. He raped her.
She then said, ‘For goodness’ sake, take the car and go, it is almost daybreak.’ But first he needed to get Gregsten’s body out of the car. He told her, ‘You will have to get him out. I must not get blood on me.’ She dragged the body around the car and to the edge of the concrete strip. The gunman seemed indecisive. He came back up to her, saying, ‘I think I had better knock you on the head or something, or else you will go for help.’ She said that she would not do so and held out a £1 note, saying ,’you can have that if you go quickly.’ He momentarily seemed to wonder where she had got it from, then took it and walked away. When a few feet from her, he suddenly turned round and fired a number of shots into her body. Then he kicked me and walked away.’
Thursday August 24 1961
At about 11:00 a. m., twenty-three-year-old Audrey Willis was at home in Old Knebworth, Hertfordshire. There was a knock at the back door. A man asked for her husband. When she replied that he was not in, and that she was not alone, he produced a ‘short, black’ gun and forced his way into the house. He next demanded money. I gave him £4 and he left by the back door.
Was the gun that Audrey Willis threatened with the murder weapon? If so, it was taken to London, because it was recovered that evening from a 36A bus at the Rye Lane depot in Peckham, south London. A .38 Enfield, five boxes of ammunition - sixty rounds and a handkerchief was picked up by bus cleaner Edwin Cooke from the recess of the lifted back seat on the top deck who confirmed nothing had been there the previous evening.
Among the many police appeals for information was the customary one to hotels and guesthouses. At the Alexandra Court Hotel in Finsbury Park, north London, guests considered very odd the behaviour of a man who seemed to have spent the time since the murder locked in his room, pacing up and down. Mary Perkins, the lady in the next room, described him as ‘about thirty years, 5 feet 6 inches tall, medium build, fresh complexion, dark hair, with either a cockney or south country accent’. The man was registered as Frederick Durrant, which on learning the name and address were false, D. S. Kilner and D. C. Dean took him in for police questioning where he admitted his name was Peter Louis Alphon.
When asked, where had he been on the Tuesday, the critical date? Alphon said that at about 8 p.m. he went to the Broadway house hotel in Dorset Square. They had no room there, but booked a room for him at a hotel under the same ownership, the Vienna, in Sutherland Avenue, Maida Vale. Thereafter, he met his mother in the street on the corner of Gleneagle Road – ‘as I do not get on with my father.’ He then returned to Victoria station, where had to pick up something from the left luggage office. He then went to the Vienna Hotel, arriving just after 11 p.m.
He stayed in Room 6 and left the following morning at about 11:45a.m. It was confirmed that Alphon stayed the night of 22 August at the Vienna hotel and he was allowed to leave after completing his statement but to return to the police station the following day.
Thursday September 7 1961
At about 1:30 p.m., a twenty-three-year-old Swedish housewife, Meike Dalal, was attacked by a man who called to look at some accommodation. She had received an inquiry about the room the previous day; but when she told the caller the rent, he muttered something about ‘robbing bastards’ and hung up. She received a second call at about 11:00 a.m. on the Thursday from someone who could have been the same man. He asked to see the room, and she gave him the address.
She invited him in and took him to see the room to let. ‘I started showing him around, we were talking about the room and its amenities, and suddenly he closed the door.’ He struck her a violent blow on the left temple with something hard, she didn’t see what. She collapsed on the floor beside the bed. He tied her wrists behind her back with some flex which he’d taken from his coat pocket. As he was doing so, he said to her, ‘Listen, I am the A6 murderer and I want some money.’
She pretended to be unconscious and didn’t reply. He then struck her twice more on the head, gagged her mouth with a silk scarf, and tied her ankles with a piece of blue ribbon. ‘Whilst I was lying on my face, he wiped the blood off the back of my head with a pillow and then he turned me over on my back and lifted up my skirts.’
At this point she began to struggle, but in fact he made no attempt to touch her under her clothing. Once again – if this was the same man – his efforts at binding hands were unsuccessful. Mrs Dalal got hers free, and managed to parry another blow which he aimed at her head. She then got the gag out of her mouth and screamed twice, very loudly. As he escaped downstairs and out into the street, she ran out of the room, along the landing and into the front room. She opened the window on to the main road and screamed to wake the dead.
Two women and a man were passing by. The latter, Philip Dyerson (who thought she’d screamed, ‘He’s the Essex murderer’) came into the house and dialled for an ambulance and the police, while the two women comforted Mrs Dalal. The police received the message at 1:45 and arrived within ten minutes. The attacker made off, turning right along Upper Richmond Road and right again down Grosvenor Gardens.
Despite the prodigious investigations of Richmond police, the detectives on the A6 team instinctively ruled out the possibility that there could be any link between the Dalal incident and the A6 murder itself.
The detectives continued to be preoccupied with the find on the 36A bus, the revolver was an Enfield and there were five boxes, containing about sixty rounds. Nevertheless, this was an extraordinary – and extraordinary bulky – amount of material for someone to dispose of in a hurry. The questions remained unanswered: how had someone managed this, and why had they done it at all when it would have seemed the safer, more sensible option to have hurled it all into the River Thames?
The concentration on ballistics, however, appeared to be vindicated when two cartridge cases from the murder weapon were suddenly discovered in a shabby hotel in Maida Vale.
The man who entered the case as Jim Ryan was born James Francis Hanratty on 4 October 1936. His criminal career started in a small way, convicted of taking a motor-cycle in 1954. Once he started going down the West End as a teenager, he found he could get ready money. That’s what led him astray. In 1955, he was convicted of of housebreaking and theft, and on his release from prison in 1957, stealing a motor-car, the same charge he was convicted for in 1958 and released in 1960.
Resuming burglaries in well-to-do districts of North London, he explained: ‘I never use gloves. I carry a spare hankerchief and use it to pick up articles or clean off fingerprints afterward. Gloves give you away.’ In several respects, James remained an innocent abroad. Adult vices like smoking and drinking were, well for adults, he did neither. Nor was he prone to violence. No one had ever seen him involved in a fight.
Wednesday October 11 1961
Hanratty was apprehended and immediately had his fingerprints taken and straightaway volunteered to provide forensic samples. An identity parade took place at 4.00 p. m. There were four witnesses: Edward Blackhall, John Skillett and James Trower, who had all caught glimpses of the gunman driving the car in Redbridge on the morning of the murder; and Harry Hirons, the garage attendant. Blackhall and Hirons picked out parade extras; Trower and Skillett picked out Hanratty. Hanratty raised with some exasperation the fact that everyone was dressed in light clothing except him.
Valerie Storie was wheeled up and down the line about nine times. She asked them to say ‘Be quiet, will you. I am thinking.’ She was listening for a cockney accent, someone who said ‘finking’. It took twenty minutes before she announced her decision: No. 6, Hanratty.
Some hours earlier, police fingerprint experts were able to report categorically that none of the prints from the 36A bus, Upper Richmond Road or Morris Minor or its contents were Hanratty’s.
Another of the bewildering developments that had characterised the case was someone had been trying to contact Valerie Storie by telephone, and making threats against her. At about ten past six on Sunday 1 October – which was, intriguingly, the weekend that Peter Alphon was released from custody – the telephone operator at Stoke Mandeville hospital had received a strange call. The caller said, ‘I am the man who shot Valerie Storie.’ He added, ‘I will be there at 11.30 to finish her off.’ The following day, a second call from the same man, ‘I rang the hospital yesterday about Valerie Storie. I was unable to come last night, but I will be there tonight.’ That Tuesday, ‘you know the call you had from Windsor? Tonight may be the night.’ Two newspapers also received calls including one stating ‘If anything happens to Jim Hanratty, his mates will be up at Stoke Mandeville to do her in.’ and ‘Tell Bob Traini [the crime correspondent] I am going to kill Valerie Storie tonight.’
Saturday October 14 1961
On Saturday, 14 October, immediately after Hanratty was charged, his lawyer gave details of his client’s alibi for this period. In the late evening of Monday, 21 August Hanratty arrived at the Vienna hotel. Nudds showed him to his room, down in the basement, which no-one, in the event, shared with him. After breakfast, Hanratty went to Paddington station.
On arriving, he realised straightaway that he was at the wrong station. He’d been to Liverpool about five times in the past five years. ‘I do not know why I made this mistake. Perhaps I was excited by the jewellery and the deal I was going to do.’ He called a black cab off the taxi rank and asked the driver to take him to Euston.
He would probably have arrived about 10:45, and had a long wait for the next train. ‘We got into Liverpool about 3:30 in the afternoon.’
He put his case in the left-luggage office, the man who took it had a turned or withered hand. He went into a sweet shop, there was a lady serving, and a small girl also serving. He asked the lady whether she knew where Carlton or Tarleton Avenue was. She said there wasn’t a Carlton Avenue round there. ‘When the woman told me I had to go back into town, I abandoned my intention of going to the road.’ In fact, he walked back to the station. He went towards to the billiard hall on the other side of Lime Street.
According to his own account, Hanratty was in Liverpool between approximately 4.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. Even apart from all other considerations, this, if accurate, gave him a watertight alibi. If he was there, then, he could not logically have been in a cornfield near Slough by 9.30 that evening.
On Tuesday 17 October, police called in a sweet shop on Scotland Road and made inquiries. Mrs Olive Dinwoodie immediately said, ‘I can remember a man asking for Tarleton Road.’ Her statement given to the police read ‘On Monday 21 August, I was engaged as assistant for two days. I was accompanied in the shop by my thirteen year-old granddaughter Barbara Ford. Between 3.30 and 4.00 p.m. on the Monday, a chap came into the shop and asked me to direct him to Tarleton Road. I did not know where Tarleton Road was, though I knew Tarleton Street. I asked him if it was Tarleton Street, and he said “No, Road.” It was definitely the Monday, because I was alone on the Tuesday, my grand-daughter was only with me on the Monday. The photograph you have shown me is one of the man who came in on Monday, 21 August, asking for Tarleton Road.’
After failing to sell any jewellery, Hanratty had, on the spur of the moment, abandoned Liverpool and caught a Crosville bus to Rhyl, the only service left Liverpool at 6.00 p.m. and arrived in Rhyl at 8.19 and stayed in a guesthouse.
On Thursday 24 August, he sent a telegram from Lime Street, signed from London as follows ‘Having a nice time, be home early Friday morning for business. Yours sincerely, Jim. Mr P. Ryan, Imperial Hotel, Russell Square, London.’
Shortly after midnight on the Friday morning, Hanratty took the train back to London, chatting with two men who got on at Stafford. They complimented him on his suit and discussed the A6 murder. ‘We said what a shocking thing it was.’ They got back in London at 5:20am and Hanratty went to the home of Charles France and his family. Charles said to him, ‘You went to the Club on Monday?’ and Hanratty admitted that he hadn’t, after all gone straight to Liverpool. He showed them the bill from the Vienna Hotel. That weekend Carole France again remarked that she thought the dye was beginning to fade from his hair, so he asked her to touch it up, and again she set to work and redyed it. Carole remembered the date with certainty, again because it fell just before another dental appointment that coming Monday.
On Saturday 2 September, Hanratty burgled a house near the lake in Edgware. On Monday 4 September, Hanratty flew to Dublin, Ireland to legitimately acquire an Irish driving licence. The whole trip should have been inconsequential. It did, however, constitute the most impregnable of alibis for Hanratty for the Meike Dalal incident: at the exact time she was attacked in South London by a man claiming to be the A6 murderer, Hanratty was in a police station in southern Ireland explaining a very minor traffic accident.
Late September, Hanratty burgled in Stanmore where he tore his suit jacket then discarded it in some bushes. On Thursday 5 October Hanratty learned he was wanted for the A6 murder, and the following day he rang the police. He told them where his belongings where kept including clothes and stated he had an alibi for the murder. After Hanratty’s arrest, police questioned Charles France, whose testimony was very damaging. One time, whilst explaining his approach to burglary to Charles France, Hanratty said ‘If you’ve got any rubbish you don’t want, you put it under the back seat on a bus.’
Thus, as the days slipped by to the preliminary court hearing, there were a number of pieces of prosecution evidence which appeared to fuse together: the ‘back seat’ conversation with Charles France, the ‘36A bus’ conversation with William Nudds. Then there were the identifications of John Skillet and James Trower. Finally, of towering importance, there was the evidence of Valerie Storie, which consisted not solely of her identification, but also of what she recalled of the gunman having said about himself during those harrowing hours in the Morris Minor. Much of it seemed to fit Hanratty.
The defence could point to absence of vital corroborating evidence, the total lack of motive and the fact that Hanratty had at least the prospects of an alibi.
At the preliminary court hearing, Valerie Storie commented ‘I told the witness Kerr that the man had brown hair. I said it wasn’t a dark brown. His hair was medium brown, definitely not dark brown. It appeared to be swept straight back without a parting.’
For the Police, Acott was forced to admit that, if Hanratty had committed the murder, the timetable was difficult to gauge. He agreed that if Mrs Dinwoodie had seen Hanratty, then she could not have done so on the Monday, the 21st, ‘because we know from the evidence where he was on the 21st’ [in London].
Nor did the episode of the gun on the bus appear to fit in. ‘I don’t say he got rid of the gun on a bus in London on the [Thursday] 24th and then went off to Liverpool that day so that he could send a telegram saying he was having a nice time and would be back the following day. I cannot say who put the gun on that bus. I do say that probably the defendant abandoned the gun on the bus on the 24th and then tore off to Liverpool. But if that is when he went, he could not have seen Mrs Dinwoodie and she could not have seen him. If Mrs Dinwoodie saw him, it must have been on 22 August. I had Mrs Dinwoodie’s statement double-checked by a further inquiry. Mrs Dinwoodie is a perfectly respectable and responsible citizen.’
The first day of the trial began on Monday 22 January 1962. Hanratty, charged with the murder of Michael Gregsten, pleaded not guilty. The prosecution outlined the main points of evidence against Hanratty: the identification of Valerie Storie; the details which the gunman revealed about himself in the car that, by successive processes of elimination, ultimately pointed to only one man – the defendant; the gun found on a bus; the cartridge cases, left in a hotel room in which he had stayed.
The case continued with evidence pertaining to the 36A bus. The combination of the gun, left on the bus in London that day, and the telegram, sent by Hanratty from Liverpool that evening, created difficulties for the prosecution. The telegram must have been the first and only time in judicial history that someone had tried to establish a fraudulent alibi in Liverpool by giving a bogus address in London. Hanratty had clearly given no thought at all to the notion of establishing a fraudulent alibi.
When Hanratty’s defence team saw him at the beginning of the second week, he had a shock for them. Thus, for the first time, Hanratty mentioned that during the critical period he was staying in a Rhyl guest-house.
Extraordinarily, Peter Alphon attended the court himself.
In summing up the defence pointed out that if Hanratty had gone north to arrange a bogus ‘Liverpool’ alibi, as the prosecution alleged, then the circumstances were more than curious – because he would have been setting up an alibi before a murder could have even been contemplated bearing in mind Valerie Storie’s evidence that no one could have possibly known that she and Gregsten would go to the cornfield that evening.
Hanratty testified in the Rhyl guest-house, he slept in a back room, from where he could hear but not see, the trains shunting. He could remember a green bath at the top of the house. He could recall that there was no front garden, but a small courtyard at the back.
Audrey Willis and Meike Dalal also gave evidence. Both had encounters with a man claiming to be the A6 murderer. He had threatened the former with a gun. Willis was shown the murder weapon in court, and commented that it was ‘very much the sort of gun I remember’. Both women mentioned the mackintosh he wore. Willis described him as having a ‘a long thin face, sallow complexion and brown eyes’. She thought he was ‘about thirty’. Dalal thought he was younger, mid-twenties, but she too recalled ‘an oval face, with dark brown hair plastered back.’ The latter had picked out Alphon at an identity parade. Both had no hesitation in saying that Hanratty was not the man.
Witnesses to the gunman had mentioned ‘a pale face’, whereas Hanratty’s was florid. Then, there was his suit. ‘Do you think you would notice a stripe as jazzy and as prominent as that?’ Everybody who saw Hanratty in his suit noticed the stripe, none of those who saw the gunman noticed it.
This was the longest murder trial ever in Britain. It has never been appreciated how tenuous the overall identification evidence in this case was. The final tally worked out as follows;
Peter Alphon: two identifications
James Hanratty: three identifications
Others: seven identifications.
There was also the documented Vienna Hotel testimony of the manager, Juliana Galves. She said: ‘I do not understand that part of the entry ‘£1 7s 6d deposit’ because if the guest Alphon had telephoned this hotel in the morning he could not have paid a deposit before his arrival.
Finally at 9:10 p.m., the jury returned their verdict: Guilty. Was that the verdict of them all? It was. The judge, with black cap now on his wig, sentenced Hanratty to death.
On Monday 2 April, 1962, when the Home Secretary refused clemency for Hanratty’s scheduled hanging; something extraordinary happened. Audrey Willis, of Knebworth, Herfordshire, the lady who was held up in the immediate aftermath of the A6 crime, and who gave evidence about it at the trial, was ambushed again, by the same man, in entirely parallel circumstances. The once-in-a-lifetime incident happened again. She told police that at 12:50 p.m., he called again with a gun. ‘It was the same man – absolutely, definitely. One of the things that was so unnerving was that he knew his way around, he knew where the stairs were. I can remember my clothes going up and down because my heart was beating so fast.’ He again asked for a drink and money, ‘he was much more sure of himself the second time, he was slightly showing off. The gun – he kept waving it in my baby’s direction – wasn’t wobbling.’ He then left, but as he was leaving said to her, ‘You and I will have a smile on Wednesday morning, knowing that it is the wrong man. You and I know who did it, don’t we?’ He then added, ‘Look into my eyes – they are blue, aren’t they?’ He then disappeared.
Later on Tuesday, Alphon told a friend that he had done certain things to let them know that Hanratty wasn’t the murderer, and that he had employed ‘unconstitutional’ means. Alphon’s attitude was clear ‘One day I will admit it to the world’ but Hanratty is expendable, ‘I have my mission.’
Wednesday April 4 1962
Hanratty was hanged in the morning.
The first anniversary of the murder was eventful. Alphon paid an extraordinary visit to the Hanratty home in Kingsbury. Mr Hanratty asked if it was right that he had written a confession. Alphon replied that he had, and produced the original notes from his pocket. He then said, ‘I am very sorry that all this happened. I never thought that they would hang your son. I know he did not do the murder.’ He then astonished the family by taking out his chequebook and suggested that he recompense them for Jimmy’s death. James Hanratty was understandably livid; he threw Alphon out of the house.
That afternoon, Alphon met campaigners including the Hanratty family who told him they wanted nothing to do with him. Mary Hanratty joined them, but at Green Park a fracas developed. Alphon hurled himself down the steps, gripped Mary by the throat and pushed her against a wall. Shortly afterwards the police came, but by then Alphon had fled. Mary, her neck bearing red weals as proof of the attack, sued for assault but Alphon, after telling the court that the police and Home Secretary had ignored his A6 confession notes, was acquitted.
Alphon also used to make regular phonecalls to the Hanratty family. Sometimes, when one of the family picked up the phone, there would just be silence at the other end; at other times, he spoke and made threats. Once, when Mary answered, he said, ‘I am the A6 killer, and I’m coming to get you.’
Alphon always reacted uncomfortably when the Rhyl alibi was receiving attention. He resented the spotlight moving away from himself, and concern lest the alibi were properly established. So in late 1968 he wrote to the Home Secretary with an entirely unambiguous confession, ‘I killed Gregsten, the establishment murdered Hanratty and have since acted against me as though they knew I was guilty.’
James Hanratty's body was exhumed in 2001 to extract his DNA. His DNA was compared with other DNA extracted from, firstly, mucus preserved in the handkerchief within which the murder weapon had been found wrapped and, secondly, semen preserved in the underwear worn by Storie when she was raped. DNA samples from both sources exactly matched James Hanratty's DNA. No DNA other than Hanratty's was found on the handkerchief in which the murder weapon had been found wrapped.

2020.06.07 20:13 MelioraOptimus If God is a Utilitarian, There is a 100% Chance George W. Bush is Going to Heaven. It's Not Even Close.

If God is a Utilitarian, There is a 100% Chance George W. Bush is Going to Heaven. It's Not Even Close.
Just yesterday, it was announced that Bush is not supporting Trump for reelection. He also didn't vote for Trump in 2016. However, this has sparked a lot of backlash from staunch-leftists, who argue that Bush is one of the evilest men in human history and that Biden should disavow if he ends up endorsing him.
Don't get me wrong, I am basically a succ (besides on trade, wealth tax, and foreign policy). If it weren't for one thing, Bush would've been an absolutely terrible president IMO. Many of George W. Bush’s actions ruined the lives of many people. He invaded Iraq based on extremely faulty intelligence, resulting in the deaths of ~500,000 people (although I think this was motivated by an extremely well-intentioned desire to remove Hussein from power). He was negligent during Katrina. He signed wreckless tax cuts that exacerbated wealth inequality. Bush ruined America’s reputation around the world.
However, what many people don’t know is that despite all of this, GWB did one thing that no other potential president would have done that saved the lives of millions of people and arguably far outweighs the harm he did. If God judged humans solely on whether or not the good they have done for the world outweighs the bad, there is a 100% chance GWB goes to Heaven. It’s amazing how little people know of PEPFAR. It is by far one of the greatest programs in American history.
Vox: George W. Bush was a much better president than liberals like to admit

All things considered, George W. Bush did a lot of good.
Don't get me wrong. He is also a war criminal who belongs in a cell at the Hague, along with much of his Cabinet. The Iraq War was a disaster of epic proportions that, according to the best estimates, caused the needless death of hundreds of thousands of people. The administration's torture regime was an appalling crime against humanity. Bush's tax cuts were foolish, his Supreme Court picks were bad, and he appointed Federal Reserve governors who were far too hesitant to act decisively to save the economy in 2007 and 2008.
But Bush also created PEPFAR: the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. PEPFAR is one of the best government programs in American history, probably the best since the Great Society. Public health research has found it saved the lives of at least a million people, and has done so with shocking cost-effectiveness. Not just any president would have proposed PEPFAR. Indeed, the Obama administration has taken alarming steps to weaken it. But Bush did propose it, and pass it, and as a consequence did enough good to outweigh even his worst offenses in office.
He'd have been an even better president if he hadn't committed sundry war crimes or overseen the tanking of the world economy. But PEPFAR alone is enough to make Bush's net impact on the world positive rather than negative.
What PEPFAR is
PEPFAR is the federal government's anti–HIV/AIDS foreign aid program, established by the Global AIDS Act of 2003 and renewed in 2008 and 2013. It is the single largest global health initiative targeting a single disease in history. It currently provides support for antiretroviral treatment for 7.7 million people, both directly and through technical support to partner countries; in fiscal year 2014, it provided HIV testing and counseling to more than 56.7 million people, including 14.2 million pregnant women.
"PEPFAR has helped changed the equation on what was once — not too long ago — seen as an insurmountable plague," the Center for Global Development's Amanda Glassman and Jenny Ottenhoff write.
The results are nothing short of extraordinary. A 2009 study by Stanford medical professors Eran Bendavid and Jayanta Bhattacharya, comparing HIV mortality in African countries receiving PEPFAR support between 2004 and 2007 and countries not receiving it, found that the program reduced the HIV death rate by 10.5 percent — preventing 1.2 million deaths, at a startlingly low price of only $2,450 per death averted. If you extrapolate out that figure for subsequent years, that's 3 to 4 million lives saved so far — but given that the study only focused on 12 African countries rather than every PEPFAR partner, and that funding for and the reach of PEPFAR has grown dramatically since, that's likely an underestimate. The true number saved could be significantly higher.
"PEPFAR's efforts have saved and improved the lives of millions of people"
Though some critics have argued that programs like PEPFAR that focus on one disease damage efforts to combat other public health problems, subsequent research by Bendavid, Bhattacharya, Charles Holmes, and Grant Miller found that PEPFAR reduced all-cause adult mortality in affected African countries by 16 to 20 percent.
That's the direct evidence base, but there are plenty of less direct reasons to think PEPFAR is saving millions of lives. We know antiretroviral treatments are effective at expanding lifespans, and particularly effective when used to prevent transmission by pregnant women to children (a particular focus of PEPFAR). PEPFAR also provides funding for male circumcision, which is a cost-effective way of reducing the risk of HIV transmission. Evaluations of local antiretroviral treatment rollouts backed by PEPFAR (but not solely by PEPFAR) have been promising. There's evidence that antiretrovirals increase workforce participation and employment, improving development prospects and improving well-being apart from any effects on mortality. A 2013 paper even found that PEPFAR was reducing tuberculosis infections and deaths in focus countries.
PEPFAR is not perfect. It has funded abstinence-only programs that have proven ineffective at reducing infection rates, though the portion of the budget going to these programs has shrunk in recent years. Until the Supreme Court struck it down, PEPFAR had a requirement that partner organizations commit to opposing sex work. Insofar as the Bush administration tried to inject social conservatism into the program's operations, it made PEPFAR less effective. But these are relative quibbles next to the millions of lives saved.
A 2013 Institute of Medicine evaluation sums it up well: "PEPFAR's efforts have saved and improved the lives of millions of people by supporting HIV prevention, care, and treatment services; meeting the needs of children affected by the epidemic; building capacity; strengthening systems; engaging with partner country governments and other stakeholders; increasing knowledge about the epidemic in partner countries; and ensuring that attention be paid to vulnerable populations in the response to HIV."
Bush championed PEPFAR — and Obama hasn't
From start to finish, PEPFAR was Bush's project; by all accounts, global HIV prevention was a personal passion of his during his two terms in office. PEPFAR's announcement in the 2003 State of the Union (the same speech where Bush claimed "the British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa") followed Bush's contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria in 2001 and a $500 million program to fight maternal transmission of HIV announced in 2002.
His then-deputy chief of staff, Joshua Bolten, told reporter John Donnelly that Bush told him to "think big" and work with other members of the administration to design a much larger, costlier anti-HIV program after the $500 million plan was announced. There wasn't any domestic clamoring for such an effort. "Beyond a handful of congressional Democrats and Republicans calling for a vastly expanded anti-AIDS initiative in Africa, there seemed to be little appetite or enthusiasm for such a game-changing response," Donnelly writes. But Bush got his team to propose and pass it all the same.
It was a textbook case of a president effectively using his power to change the political agenda. Before Bush, global HIV/AIDS funding was not a priority of Congress. But after Bush made it a focus, Congress passed billions in funding.
Obama's record on PEPFAR, though, leaves much to be desired. Annual funding has fallen since he took office in nominal terms, and even more after inflation is taken into account:
United States of America's Global Health Funding for the President's Emergency Plan for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) Relief (PEPFAR), FY 2004-FY 2015.
Policymakers ranging from former Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), a diehard fiscal conservative, to Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), perhaps the most left-wing member of the House and the only "no" vote on the post-9/11 Authorization for the Use of Military Force, have urged Obama to reverse course and propose increases to PEPFAR's budget, following Bush's pattern of consistently increasing funding. But this has fallen on deaf ears.
When challenged on his repeated cuts to PEPFAR, Obama has pleaded Republican obstruction, telling reporters in 2013, "Given the budget constraints, for us to try to get the kind of money that President Bush was able to get out of the Republican House for massively scaled new foreign aid program is very difficult."
However, the commitment of Coburn and other conservatives — including Senate Republicans like Mike Enzi, Marco Rubio, Richard Burr, and Kelly Ayotte — to boosting PEPFAR makes this excuse hard to believe. Indeed, in fiscal year 2015 Congress actually increased PEPFAR funding by $300 million. Did Obama sense an opening, and increase PEPFAR funding in his fiscal year 2016 budget? Nope. He kept PEFAR funding flat, and cut other global HIV/AIDS funding.
PEPFAR isn't the kind of thing that any president would do. It was born of the particular interests of the Bush administration, and while it's hung on under Obama — and kept saving millions more lives — the current administration's comparative neglect of it demonstrates that its existence and survival are anything but guaranteed. Bush really did go above and beyond by creating it.
Does this outweigh Bush's sins?
Cards on the table: I'm a utilitarian. I think government policy should maximize human well-being and happiness. And it's really, really hard to argue that the Bush administration did enough net harm to human well-being to outweigh the tremendous good done by PEPFAR.
Take the Iraq War, the worst thing Bush did in his presidency, and the one that cost by far the most lives. The most conservative estimates — like Iraq Body Count's, which is drawn from media reports — place Iraqi casualties from the conflict at 100,000 to 250,000, with Iraq Body Count putting the figure at 216,000. Survey-based studies go higher: One estimating 2003 to 2011 excess deaths put the toll at 405,000; a famous 2006 Lancet study put the toll to date at 654,965; in early 2008 the British polling firm ORB put it at 1.033 million.
The highest of those estimates are extremely implausible; see this paper by economist Michael Spagat on the Lancet study (which finds evidence that some data was fabricated or falsified), and this one by Spagat and Iraq Body Count's Josh Dougherty on the ORB poll. But supposing for a second they were true, PEPFAR saved an estimated 1.2 million lives in its first four years; it has seen greatly expanded funding since, and saved millions more. The humanitarian toll of Iraq was tremendous, and all the more tragic for being totally preventable. But it was considerably smaller than the humanitarian gains of PEPFAR.
PEPFAR is an accomplishment that stands alongside the Marshall Plan, and Social Security
That's true even if you add in Afghanistan. According to a recent paper by Boston University's Neta Crawford, about 149,000 people, including combatants and civilians, have died in Afghanistan and Pakistan due to violence following the invasion. That's swamped not just by PEPFAR but by aid efforts in Afghanistan, which have reduced child mortality enough that nearly 100,000 child deaths that would have happened absent US intervention are averted every year.
The only other policy of Bush's that plausibly could have an impact of this scale on human mortality is his failure to act decisively against climate change. Precise estimates here are impossible; extreme climate change is likely to cost many, many lives, but causally attributing a portion of it to inaction over a specific period of time in a specific country (even one as crucial as the US) is basically impossible. If, in the future, it can be demonstrated that EPA regulations like those being rolled out by the Obama administration, were they implemented in 2001, could've mitigated global warming enough to save millions of lives, then Bush did net harm to the world. But especially absent cooperation from other governments, that strikes me as a tough case to make.
Remembering Dubya
Bush is not, as Clinton family court historian Sean Wilentz once dubbed him, America's worst president. He's not the fourth worst, as my colleague Matt Yglesias wrote earlier this year. It's simply unfair to place him next to the likes of Andrew Johnson, the best friend white supremacy ever had in America, or noted genocidaire Andrew Jackson, or mass slaughter aider and abetter Richard Nixon.
George W. Bush was not a great president. He should be ashamed of — and, in a better world, would be punished for — his actions in Iraq and the torture regime he created. They are a moral stain on the nation.
But Bush was not a bad president, either. PEPFAR is an accomplishment that deserves to stand alongside the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, the Marshall Plan, and Social Security as one of the greatest spending programs the federal government ever enacted.
PEPFAR is even better than you imagined. I said that it saved "millions" of lives, but that just understates things. It's not just 2 or 3 million lives. At least 17 million lives have been saved because of it! What other government program has saved that many lives!? Maybe cigarette taxes/indoor smoking bans? Possibly Medicare?
Yet, Bush is considered a bad president because the Iraq War killed ~500,000 people? The Iraq War was terrible, but PEPFAR more than makes up for it.
PEPFAR is the single largest AIDS/HIV prevention program in human history. It deserves to be at least as widely renowned as Medicare/Social Security/etc. There were some flaws, like its emphasis on abstinence, but no program is perfect. Yet, virtually nobody knows about it. Even fucking Obama did not give a shit about it and cut its funding during his presidency. The fact that Bush was much more adamant about AIDS/HIV prevention in the developing world than Obama really disgusts me and lowers my opinion of Obama a lot. I would've expected better from him.
And don't even get me started on Trump:
Trump: "Nobody knows that [PEPFAR]," "I've never heard that"
In fairness, Trump is not wrong. Most people do not know about PEPFAR in America at least.
However, what many people don't know is that Bush is one of the most beloved figures in Africa because of it. Everyone in Africa knows about PEPFAR and are eternally grateful for his contributions to this field. Bush and Bill Gates two of the most widely renowned Americans in Africa for their efforts towards AIDS/HIV prevention.
Financial Times: Why George W. Bush is Africa's Favourite US President
As the article points out, it is very unlikely that PEPFAR would've been created under any other president. Bush has been speaking about AIDS/HIV prevention since the 1990's, while it was not a priority for Gore at all. Bush is the man who came up with PEPFAR and pushed for it! It was a very personal passion of his.
I know I might get a lot of downvoted for saying this, but maybe Jeb rigging the election to allow GWB to "win" Florida in 2000 was one of the greatest things that have ever happened. This alone cancels every bad thing Bush did and makes him a great president. It's not even close! I don't think God even has to be a utilitarian for GWB to go to Heaven. Yes, the Iraq War was a huge mistake, but it was motivated by a well-intentioned desire to remove Saddam Hussein from power. Hussein was a genocidal dictator who killed ~100,000 Kurds. And PEPFAR more than makes up for it. Hopefully, Bush soars up to Heaven after death.

2020.05.23 21:59 Quirky-Motor What everyone has wrong about Ridgway. EXTENSIVE write up on the crimes of Gary Ridgway, misconceptions about him and his crimes, a few comparisons to Bundy, and profiles of women murdered, still missing, and unidentified. Part 2 of 2.

Hello everyone. A few months ago, I posted an extensive write up on the DeOrr Kunz case and later the Asha Degree case with several other missing people’s cases sprinkled in between, which many readers seemed to enjoy. Those can be found here:
Today, I wanted to do a similar long form write up but this time, I wanted to switch gears and talk about Ridgway and his victims. This is part 2 of 2. Please read part 1 first:
Carol Ann Christensen was the 22-year-old single mother of a five-year-old girl. She lived with her daughter in a mobile home park near the SeaTac strip. Carol Ann was happy because she had finally landed a new job after a few months of searching. She got a job as a waitress at a bar and grill only three blocks from her house. Because she had no car, she was happy to have a job she could walk to. Carol dropped off her daughter with her parents. She disappeared after her shift walking home on the SeaTac strip. Carol Ann had no none connections to the scene. No criminal record, no addiction, no hitchhiking. Gary Ridgway later confessed that he abducted and killed Carol Ann to confuse investigators. Carrie Ann Rois who used the street name Silver Champagne came from a broken home full of abuse and negativity. She became a chronic runaway with a criminal record. She ran away, bounced from relative to relative and began working on the Strip even though she was still attending high school. Carrie was musical and played the flute in the marching band. After a few years of estrangement, Carrie reconciled with her mother once her mother left her abusive husband. The mother and daughter spent Christmas ’82 together and her mother told her she loved her no matter what. It was their last Christmas together; Carrie vanished six months later in June 1983. Martina T. Authorlee came from a West German family who had moved to the United States several years earlier. She dreamed of joining the military like her father, but was discharged from basic training for medical reasons. She moved to the Portland area after that but called home to Tacoma several times a month and always on holidays. Her parents didn’t know what her job was and had no idea she had a record for prostitution; they were just happy she was still coming home and in contact with them regularly. When Christmas 1983 rolled around with no call from Martina she was reported missing. No one knew she was working in Seattle at the time. Cheryl Lee Wims grew up in the Central district of Seattle not too far from the strip, but not near it either. At 18 her only “problem” was that she often skipped her classes at school but she was successfully holding down a job as a busser at a restaurant. She wasn’t known to prostitute but she did struggle with addiction. She vanished in May ’83. Years later it would be revealed that the man Cheryl was seeing at the time was actually a pimp. Yvonne Shelly Antosh was a Canadian girl with thick Auburn hair, who came to Seattle hearing the money was better in the USA. She was last seen by a friend at the end of May 1983 on the Pacific high way south. Constance Naon was 20 and worked two jobs, one at a sausage factory and one walking the streets. She made lots of money from both jobs but drug addiction ate away her cash. She called her boyfriend to say she was going to pick up her paycheck and would come over in twenty minutes but she never made it. In June detectives found her abandoned car, but there was no trace of Connie. Kelly Ware’s parents remember her as a happy girl. She was last seen in Seattle’s central district in the same area Cheryl Wims disappeared. She was only 22 or 23 when she was last seen. Little information is available. April Buttram was a 17-year-old girl from Spokane. As a teenager her parents described her as a party girl who loved being social but unfortunately had a taste for drugs and alcohol. One day April and some girlfriends headed to Seattle for a weekend to let loose. April was planning on coming back to Spokane because she was due to inherit $10,000 on her 18th birthday from a relative. April was last seen in the Rainier valley area of Seattle, after her friends left her. They never saw her again and she never return to Spokane to collect her money. Debora May Abernathy, her boyfriend, and their three-year-old son, had moved to Seattle from Texas, hoping to get a fresh start. They rented a room in a house owned by an old lady near the Seattle airport. Debora left one night to run an errand but never returned home. The young mother was 26.
Tina Marie Thompson disappeared in July 1983, but was not reported missing until much later. She was 22. Very little information is available in her case. Tracy Winston was close to her family and was known to be athletic. She was the first girl allowed on the boys’ little league team at her school. Her dad remembers her as a great pitcher with a good arm. Tracy liked baseball but when she was in high school, she played on basketball for the school instead. Tracy moved away from home as a young teen. At 19 she was arrested for the first time for loitering, (something prostitution was often lowered to). The jailers described her as a “scared rabbit.” She called her parents from jail crying and told them she was going to turn her life around, get her GED, and change her ways. Tracy called a cab driver she knew in Seattle who worked near the jail. The cab driver drove by and talked to Tracy outside. He told her he had a passenger to pick up near the airport but would be back for her in 45 minutes. When he returned, Tracy was gone, like she had been swallowed by the streets of downtown Seattle. (The cab driver called the police and has been cleared in Tracy’s case.) Maureen Sue Feeney at age 19 had never had a boyfriend or even been on a date. She got a job working as a secretary at a Christian school and moved out of her parents place for the first time in her life. A few months later she moved to the central district of Seattle lured by the cheap rent and got a job nearby as a daycare worker. Maureen’s friends reported that Maureen had a history of depression so they called her often to check up on her. Her friends were surprised to learn that Maureen once shy, conservative, and careful seemed to be drinking heavily. Soon Maureen had her first boyfriend, a man she met at the bus stop. She told her friends that her boyfriend had “lots of ways to make money” but her friends were worried about this new man in her life. A week before she turned 20, Maureen left the house and vanished. Pammy Avent street name Annette, spent her time in Portland and Seattle. She was known to be good friends with another girl named Keli Kay McGinnis. Because she moved around, it took a while for friends to realize she was missing. Pammy was last seen in the Rainier valley area of Seattle in late October 1983. Mary Sue Bello at 26 had been in the scene for a long time. Her family remembers her to be streetwise and funny. You could never be mad at Mary Sue very long because she could always make you laugh. Mary was a great cook who loved the holidays because of all the delicious treats she could make. After a few years estranged from her mother and grandparents, Mary Sue had come back in to their lives and was trying to straighten out. She told her mom that she had no intentions of getting a “straight” job because she liked the money but did want to get clean. Mary Sue signed up for a methadone program and called her mother every other day to keep on track with her sobriety. At one point she called the green river task force to report a weird John. Although the man did not seem dangerous to her, she apparently saw a knife collection in his house. He drove an older station wagon and lived off military road. In October 1983 Mary Sue Bello left her mother’s trailer south of Seattle never to be seen again. Delise Louise Plager went by the name Missy and life was sad from the start. Born dead she was resuscitated but had health problems for the rest of her life. Missy and her twin brother left the hospital and arrived home with their birth mother who drank heavily and disregarded her children. The twins were taken away and were soon placed with different families. Missy briefly lived with her adoptive parents on a ranch where it soon became obvious that she suffered from several disabilities. She was then placed with a family who had more experience with special needs children although she saw her initial adoptive parents regularly. According to Barbara, Missy’s second house mom, Missy loved deeply but struggled in school. As an adult Missy tracked down her birth family who wanted nothing to do with her, breaking her heart further. Missy had two children but she began using drugs and walking the streets to make money. She placed her children into the care of an older woman, and old friend named Maia and walked into the night. Maia reported her missing when Missy did not return. Kimberly Nelson used so many aliases that the task force thought that three women had gone missing when it was actually just one. Born Kimberly Nelson she worked the streets as Star and told others still her name was Tina Tomson. Her parents reported Kim Nelson missing, her boyfriend/pimp reported Tina Tomson missing, and some friends reported that a working girl named Star had gone missing; at first no one realized they were the same person. The twenty-year-old was six feet tall, so many people remembered her. She was working with her friend Paige on Pacific highway south when she disappeared. The next day a man in a red truck with a white canopy pulled up to Paige and asked where her tall friend was. The man unnerved Paige for some reason. She reported her friend missing and reported the tip of the man in the red truck. Kim Nelson was four months pregnant when she disappeared on Halloween 1983. Lisa L. Yates grew up living with her much older sister and her sister’s family in the Seattle area. Lisa loved her niece who was only ten years her junior. Her niece always thought of her as a cool, pretty, sophisticated, streetwise older sister. The last thing Lisa did was promise her niece they would go on a picnic and maybe go shopping at the mall. Lisa never picked up her niece and vanished at age 19 two days before Christmas 1983. Mary Exzetta West was a high school student at 16 years old. She lived with her aunt in the Rainier neighborhood of Seattle. Mary was a shy girl with a quick smile who always made it home by curfew or called if she would be late. She was six months pregnant but not yet showing. Mary left the house one Monday during the mid-morning and disappeared early in 1984. Cindy Ann Smith had left her home in South Seattle as a teenager and moved to sunny California. Her mom always worried about her and how she was making money, so it was a great surprise when Cindy called saying she was moving back to Seattle. Her mom sent her money and she traveled north. After getting home she decided to walk to visit her brother at his work. Cindy was last seen on Pacific Highway south in 1984. She disappeared before she could spend even one night with her family. She was only 17. Patricia Barczak at 19 was an excellent cook and baker who lived in Bellevue, Washington. In 1986 she was enrolled in a culinary class and hoped to get a job someday as a wedding cake decorator. Patricia had a lousy boyfriend who bummed off of her and often slept on the couch at her place. Patricia disappeared one day and when her mother found out she never picked up her last paycheck from the doughnut shop, she reported her missing. Patricia was not initially considered a Green River victim because her boyfriend was always the prime suspect as he continued to live in her apartment and did not report her missing. Her skull was found in a cluster with other victims and later interviews would reveal that Patricia was last seen on Pacific Highway south, near the airport. Roberta Hays Bobby Jo to her family, was a free spirit who at age 20 traveled and worked up and down the west coast. She loved her family and made sure she was always around for the holidays. She was also known as a faithful friend. Even the cops who had arrested Bobby Jo remembered her as polite and bubbly. She disappeared from Aurora Avenue north in 1987.
Marta Reeves mother of four but estranged from her husband and their children, was 36 years old in 1990. Marta’s last few years had been plagued with cocaine addiction. Her life and family disintegrated and a desperate Marta was soon working on the streets. She was last heard from when she called her ex-husband looking for money. She disappeared from Seattle’s central district. Patricia Yellow Robe’s grew up on the Rocky Boys’ Indian reservation in Montana with 9 siblings. Her younger siblings loved their sister who they described as ‘always a lot of fun’. Trish moved around a lot as an adult but would swoop back in to see her family unexpectedly. Tragically, Trish struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol and was thus unpredictable. In the summer before her death, Trish was visiting her family home when she told her sister she was planning on getting help with her addiction and wanted to go to rehab or something similar. Trish never got the chance to get clean. She died in 1998 at 38 years old.
And often forgotten as victims 50, 51, 52- The unborn babies of Mary Exzetta West, Mary Bridgett Meehan, and Kimberly Nelson whose lives were stolen when Ridgway killed their mothers.
The following 3 women have been linked to Ridgway almost conclusively but are technically still missing. I believe Ridgway has confessed to the following three women’s cases but without corroborating evidence or bodies he has not been charged.
Kase Anne Lee was a petite red headed 16-year-old who lived in the same building as Terry Milligan. She was originally from Spokane and worked a few hours weekly at a photo shop. Her husband often beat her up and she worked the streets near the airport. Her husband, Anthony “Pretty Tony” Lee, was even briefly looked at as the killer. She left one evening at 11:30 pm to buy groceries and vanished into the night. Tragically, the only available photos of Kase (pronounced like Casey sometimes written Kasee) are her mugshots. Her body has never been found.
Patricia Osborn left her home on Aurora Avenue in extreme north Seattle to meet a date. Earlier she had been heard arranging the date on the phone. Patricia’s family lived in Oregon. She had three arrests all in 1983 that they had no idea about. When she didn’t call home during the holidays, she was reported missing by her family. By that time, she had not been seen in over three months.
Keli Kay McGinnis had a life one could call peculiar. She was born to a young mother who worked as a musician and the pair lived in apartments in the Seattle area. When Keli was a few years old her mother married a millionaire business man, and the three lived in a two-million-dollar mansion on Queen Anne Hill. Keli and her parents owned horses, yachts, and nice cars. The took lavish trips and Keli loved her father, who was actually her step dad. A few years down the road her mother and step father split and the pair went back to living in apartments with her mom working long hours as a singer. It was a weird life for the now aged eleven-year-old McGinnis. Years later at age 15 Keli fell in love with a boy at school and became pregnant. Keli’s family did not approve of her African American boyfriend so the couple moved in together. Keli and her boyfriend traveled the west coast with Keli working the streets. Keli usually worked with her best friend; a young teenager named Pammy Advent whose street name was Annette. Keli’s background gave her an edge in the business and she worked at fancy hotels and attracted wealthier johns. According to some of the women who worked with Keli, McGinnis was able to pull in 2-3x what they did on a typical night. Keli left her home one night in South Seattle to work but never came home. Her boyfriend called the police to report her missing. He was adamant Keli would never abandon their toddler daughter, who was later adopted out to a family when McGinnis never returned home. Her body has never been found, but Ridgway believes he killed her.
The following three women are Jane Does who were arrested under false names before disappearing in Seattle, and are still not identified today. It is possible some or all of them women are Green River Victims. (this is a very confusing section so please bear with me.)
Linda Louise Jackson was arrested in King County in the early 1980s using the alias Wylynda L. Wells. In 2012, King County authorities tried to contact Wylynda who they learned was actually Linda, to testify in a trial. When her family was tracked down, they reported they had not heard from Linda in “well over 10 years.” As it turns out Jackson has not been seen in King County (or anywhere else) since early 1983 but was never reported missing. If you know her whereabouts or associates please contact King county authorities. She is a native American female with brownish-black hair and brown eyes. A photo is provided below.
Michelle has not been seen King County since December 1980. She went by the first name Michelle but this may not be her legal name. She also had ties to the New York area. She appears to be African American with light to medium skin tone, shortish brown-black hair and brown eyes. If you know her whereabouts, legal name, or associates please contact King county authorities.
Both women’s photos can be seen here:
Angie is a young woman who has possibly been missing since Summer 1983. She is only known as Angie, and she was a friend Green River Victim Tammie Lilies. Angie was from the Marysville area and is described as a white female, 17 to 18 years of age at the time of contact, 5' 4" in height, 110 pounds, with curly shoulder length light brown hair and greenish-blue eyes. She's been described as "very pretty" and "a Barbie doll." She was wearing blue jeans when she was last seen. No photo is available. If you know her whereabouts, legal name, or associates please contact King county authorities. (I have wondered if she is Angie Girdner down below but descriptions don’t match up perfectly and authorities seem to doubt this. She is also possibly Angela Meeker from Tacoma)

The following women have been linked to Ridgway pretty conclusively and are known to be deceased but he has not been charged with their murders. In fact, he specifically denies killing the following three women.
Amina Agisheff was a 36-year-old immigrant from Russia and a working mother of several children. She left her home and was waiting for the bus when she disappeared going to either visit her mother or coming home from visiting with her mother. She disappeared July 7th 1982. Agisheff’s body was found near North Bend in an area very close to other victims of Ridgway. Agisheff was found clothed or partially clothed, and her cause of death was a possible gunshot wound although this could not be conclusively proven. It is unknown if she was sexually assaulted. For years, Agisheff was considered to be the first Green River Victim due to where she was found even though she had no ties to the “scene” and was not known to use drugs or hitchhike. Ridgway always denies killing Agisheff, but as demonstrated above not all women killed by Ridgeway were part of the scene. However, Amina’s death varies significantly from Ridgway’s typical pattern.
It is a coincidence that Amina’s body was found near other victims and she was the victim of another killer.
She differed from the pattern because she was Ridgway’s first victim and this his method was substantially different.
She was not Ridgway’s first victim and varied from the typical because Ridgeway’s victims were more varied than initially thought. Some have speculated that Ridgway offered Amina a ride somewhere and she took it because she knew him, however tangentially. This has never been proved.
Tammie Liles was the from the Everett/ Snohomish area north of Seattle. Tammie’s family last heard from her in 1982 and she was reporting missing in 1983. Friends or family believed that had contact with Tammie in May 1984 when she called and said she was living in Tacoma and was going to get married. The police think it is possible the girl on the phone wasn’t actually Tammie, or that her family was confused on the date of the call. Tammie was removed from the missing persons list only to be reported missing again, this time for good in 1988. At this point, Tammie who was known to work as a prostitute in Seattle was linked to the GRK but her body was not identified until 1998. She was not known to work anywhere in Oregon and it has been suggested she was killed in King county and transported to Oregon after death. (Her body was found in Oregon.) Tammie is listed on some lists as an official or unofficial/ unproven Green River Victim, on some lists as a possible victim while she is left off of other lists entirely.
Angela Girdner went by the name Angie and was a straight A student at a private high school. As a teen, Angela fell in with the wrong crowd and ran away from home. She was reported missing in 1982 and died sometime that year or in early 1983. Her remains were found with Tammie Liles’ remains. Both girls were found close (within a mile) to the bodies of Denise Bush and Shirley Sherrill near Portland Oregon. Police do not believe Angela ever traveled to Washington state making Angela the only victim who may have been both abducted and killed outside of the state of Washington. This may be why Ridgway denies involvement as his plea deal states he is eligible for death penalty if he committed crimes outside of King County.
Theories: There is a theory that Tammie and Angela were killed by someone else and the placement of their bodies was a coincidence.
The following women are missing or were found dead and may be Green River Victims but are not on the official list.
Angela Mae Meeker was almost 14 when she disappeared in 1979. She was planning on going to the mall in Tacoma and then going to a birthday party when she vanished. Angela was seen later that evening at a party but never surfaced again. Angela ran away from home regularly and often hitchhiked around the Tacoma area. Angela’s parents believe she met with foul play when someone she hitched a ride with killed her. Angela Meeker is not Jane Doe B-10. Little information is available in the case.
Andria Bailey was 15 or 16 when she went missing sometime in 1978 or 1979. The exact date of her disappearance is unknown. Andria lived with her grandmother in Spanaway, south of Seattle. Andria’s parents were in the military and lived in Germany. Andria was reported missing in 1989 when her mom called the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children saying that Andria had been missing for over 10 years. NCMEC called law enforcement. In 1995, someone (possibly NCMEC) called the Green River task force and gave them Andria’s name to compare to does in the case. No one knows if Andria was involved in drugs, prostitution, or running away. Her grandmother cannot remember the last time she saw Andria or what she was doing. Apparently after Andria went missing her grandmother called her parents and Andria’s father flew to Washington state to look for her in the local area but she was never officially reported missing. Andria’s mother and grandmother have since passed away. In the one article available about this case, Andria’s relative submitted a DNA sample to match potential does. Little information is available.
Louise Sanders was last heard from in February 1981. She called a friend to make lunch plans but then canceled those plans because she was meeting a “date.” She disappeared from downtown Seattle in 1981. Louise was 35 years old at the time but a hormonal disorder made her look like a teenager still. She worked as a prostitute in downtown Seattle at the time. Little information is available in her case.
Diana Munyon ran away from home in Mississippi in 1981. Her family last heard from her in May 1982 when she called from Fontana, California. She was only 16 years old at the time. Her family contacted the Green River Task force years later, both due to her background and because Diana bears a resemblance to one of the Jane Does Ridgway plead guilty to murdering. Her case is being investigated by Seattle authorities. Little information is available.
Kristi Vorak left her foster home in Tacoma, Washington in October 1982 age 13. After leaving home she may have been seen at a bus depot in downtown Seattle. Kristi did not have a history of running away or prostitution but she did frequent areas of Seattle and Tacoma known to be part of the scene. Kristi’s mom thinks it is possible Kristi is a transient in the Seattle area or left to start a new life but law enforcement believes she met with foul play and is a possible Green River victim according to some articles. Little information is available in her case.
Patricia Ann LeBlanc was 15 when she ran away in 1983. Patti had a record for prostitution and in August 1983 was arrested and sent to a youth shelter. Four days later the youth shelter took a field trip to the Seattle Center (a museum where the Space Needle is at) and she ran away and disappeared. Patti’s foster mom said that Patti ran away from whatever living situation she was put in, but Patti still called her foster mom often. Those phone calls stopped in August 1983. Patti may have an unspecified medical condition. Little information is available in her case.
Pollyanne Jean Carter last seen leaving a friend’s home in Graham, Washington near Tacoma. She had called her parents and said she was headed home, but Pollyanne ran away often and frequented the city of Tacoma. After her disappearance her sister told law enforcement that Pollyanne worked as a prostitute in Tacoma, something her parents did not know. She was last seen in 1984 at age 15.
Diane Nguyen Robbins left her home in the Eastern Washington town of Kennewick to travel to Seattle in Summer 1985 at age 13. Diane had no history of prostitution but had recently began hanging out with an older woman named Molly A. Purdin, aged 21. Molly and Diane went to Seattle and Diane was reported as a runaway when she did not return home. Molly and Diane were last seen in Seattle or Bellevue on June 18th. Molly was found murdered a month later in North King County but there was no sign of Diane. Law enforcement believes Diane and Molly’s disappearances were due to a serial killer but have not specified Ridgway. Snohomish PD is handling the case and says both cases are considered cold.
Molly A. Purdin sometimes went by Molly Purdin-Clary. She lived in Kennewick, Washington before going missing. Read Diana Robbins summary above for more information. Little information is available.
Virginia Rambus was a Seattle woman who went missing at age 19 from south Seattle, Washington in 1985. Virginia left her apartment to visit a coworker who lived in the same complex. They were planning on going to a party together in the Rainier neighborhood, but Virginia never made to her friend’s unit. At the time of her disappearance, serial killer Jesse Pratt also lived in her apartment complex. He is the prime suspect in her disappearance. Virginia had no links to prostitution or drugs and held down a steady professional job. Her case is included in this piece only because of where she lived and the time period she disappeared.
Doris Mulhern went missing from the SeaTac strip in 1987 when she was 21 years old. She and her boyfriend traveled all around the country; they were originally from Michigan. Both lived transient, high-risk lifestyles. Mulhern’s boyfriend took her to the mall and he never saw her again. The last time she was seen, she was walking down the SeaTac strip.
Margaret Diaz was 31 when she was last seen in Tacoma in 1988. Margaret had a high-risk lifestyle and frequently worked in the Hilltop area of Tacoma. She moved around a lot but tried to keep in contact with her three kids regularly. That contact stopped in 1988 and she has been missing ever since.
Deborah Yvonne Wims sister of Cheryl Wims was last seen shopping on the SeaTac strip in 1990. She worked the strip in 1990 and disappeared when she was 31 years old. Her car was found parked on Pacific Highway south but there was no Deborah. Little information is available in her case.
Darci Warde was 16 years old in 1990. She was located by police in Seattle who returned to her parents- she had been reported missing previously. She immediately ran away again and vanished. Darci had links to prostitution. Law enforcement believes Darci’s disappearance was due to a serial killer but have not specified Ridgway. Little information is available in her case.
Cora McGuirk was 22 in July 1991. She was the young mother of three who worked at a gift shop and was an enrolled student at the University of Washington. Cora went from being a typical working mother and student to suddenly dropping out of sight at for one-two days at a time. Cora asked her aunt to look after her children in case anything bad happened to her, something that worried her aunt. The pieces fell into place when Cora brought home a new boyfriend who was using hard drugs. It is unknown if Cora was using but her aunt thought it was a likely explanation for her behavior. Cora left her children with her aunt and said she would be gone for a bit. She never returned and her abandoned car was found parked on Aurora Avenue north. Cora’s first priority was always her children even in those last few chaotic months of her life she made sure her kids had a safe place to be. Her family does not think she disappeared of her own accord. Cora’s aunt adopted and raised her three children the oldest of which, Martell Webster grew up to play professional basketball for the Portland Trailblazers. He was 4 when he last saw his mother.
Cases with loose or former links to the Green River Killer. Some of these women are mentioned in one book or one source only. Some women’s names are believed to be aliases which is why information is sparse. My researched has yielded little information on several of the women below.
Leann Virginia Wilcox died in late 1981. She fits the Ridgway profile to a tee, and was found near other dump sites but DNA on her body belongs to an unknown man, not Ridgway. GRK is not the prime suspect in her murder but it is a possibility. Initially on the Green River list, Wilcox’s case is no longer considered a Ridgway murder.
Theresa Kline died in 1982. She was in her 20s at the time and was known to hitchhike. Initially on the Green River list, Kline’s case is no longer considered a Green River homicide. Little information is available. My research has yielded little information on Theresa’s case, her death may not be a murder and her name may be an alias.
Debra Kay King disappeared from Tacoma in July 1982 when she was only 24. Little information is available in her case but foul play is suspected. My research has yielded little information on Debra’s case, her name may be an alias.
Laronda Marie Bronson disappeared November 19, 1982 from Portland, Oregon. The 18-year-old was last seen at a bus stop. Laronda had ties to prostitution and the King County Sherriff’s office is the investigating agency in her case.
Trina Deanne Hunter died in 1982. Initially on the Green River list. Hunter’s case is no longer considered a Green River murder. Little information is available.
Kimberly Ann Reames Larson disappeared from the SeaTac strip in 1983. Her body was found the next day. (This info is available in only on book on Ridgway- no other information is available.) My research has yielded little information on Kimberly’s case, her name may be an alias.
Tonya Lee Clemmons disappeared from the SeaTac area in 1983 but was not reported missing for a year. Tonya’s aunt said that Tonya always called, especially on holidays but the phone calls stopped in 1983. Tonya did not have a record for prostitution but frequented areas known for sex work such as the SeaTac strip.
Kimberly Yvette Hill of Portland was last seen getting into a hatchback car with Washington license plates[SC1] . Kimberly was a sex worker and was only 19 years old. Her body was found the dumped the next day. Her 1984 murder is still unsolved.
Kathleen Arita was a 38-year-old computer operator at Boeing. She was last seen in May 1984, leaving her home in Renton. She was later found near the Star Lake road Green River dump site. She had been strangled. In general, she is not considered a green River Victim but the placement of her body is suspicious.
Jacqueline L. Sexton a Portland woman who worked as a prostitute disappeared in December 1984. Her body was found 3 days later. (This info is available in only one book on Ridgway- no other information is available.) My research has yielded little information on Sexton’s case, her name may be an alias.
Rose Marie Kurran was a 16-year-old from the Bellingham area. Rose was known to hitchhike. She was last seen on Pacific Highway south in 1987. Her body was later found near SeaTac airport. She had been strangled. Her family described her as an animal lover and a free spirit.
Kimberly Delange was last seen at a Puyallup shopping center in 1988. Her body was later found in Enumclaw, near the body of later victim Anna Chebetnoy. Little information is available in her case.
Kerry Anne Walker of Renton, disappeared in 1988 after walking away from her home on Rainier avenue. Her body was found in later in South King county She was 15 years old. Little information is available. My research has yielded little information on Walker’s case, her name may be an alias.
Shannon L. Pease, 15 was found dead in the Lakewood area of Tacoma in 1988. She was last seen in an area known for prostitution. Little information is available. My research has yielded little information on Shannon’s case, her name may be an alias.
Robyn Kenworthy, 20 called her mom from Aurora Avenue one night and said she was coming home and was going to try to kick heroin for good. Robyn who worked as a dancer, never made it home. Robyn was found dead from an undetermined cause later in a wooded area. Robyn was found in Snohomish county in 1988. Ridgway is a suspect in her case.
Jennifer Burnetto, 32 had also fallen prey to addiction. Jennifer worked the streets of Tacoma in 1988. She was found dead from stab wounds in Snohomish county near the body of Robyn Kenworthy. Ridgway is a suspect in her case.
Tracey Wooten washed up on a beach in Tacoma at age 26 in 1990. Tracey had a history of drug use and prostitution. Tragically, Law Enforcement has been unable to find any friends or family. My research has yielded little information on Tracey’s case, her name may be an alias.
Anna Lee Chebetnoy was last seen at a Puyallup shopping center in 1990, the same one Kim Delange disappeared from. Her body was later found in Enumclaw, only 100 feet from Kim Delange’s body. Ridgway was known to leave bodies in Enumclaw in the past. Little information is available in her case.
Tia Hicks was a 20-year-old who struggled with addiction and worked as a prostitute on Aurora Avenue North in Seattle. Tia was found dead from an undetermined cause in a car in 1991. There is a suspect in her murder, if she was murdered. Her death is a still a mystery.
Heather Marie Kinchen disappeared in 1991. She was living in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood when she disappeared at age 14. The Florida girl’s remains were found in July 1991 in North Bend, Washington. Little information is available.
Sarah Marshlene Habakangas disappeared in 1991. She was working on the Pacific Highway south when she was last seen at age 17. Her remains were found in July 1991 in North Bend, Washington. Little information is available.
Nicole French aged 19 disappeared in 1992. She was good friends with Sarah Habakangas. Her remains were found in North Bend, Washington near the remains of Heather Kinchen and Sarah Habakangas. Little information is available.
Anitra Renee Mulwee was last seen at a New Year’s Eve party in 2000/2001, but she never made it home to Tacoma. Anitra’s body was found a few weeks later near a former dump spot of the Green River Killer. Despite the location of the body, there is no evidence that a crime occurred or that Anitra’s death was a homicide. Anitra did have ties to the scene as she had several drug and alcohol related offenses in her background. That particular dumping spot had been discovered by investigators years earlier, meaning that if Anitra was a victim of Ridgway, he would have dumped her body in place regularly surveilled by law enforcement, something he was not known to do. Little information is available in her case.
Were some of these women victims of Gary Ridgway?

2020.05.23 21:50 Quirky-Motor What everyone has wrong about Ridgway. EXTENSIVE write up on the crimes of Gary Ridgway, misconceptions about him and his crimes, a few comparisons to Bundy, and profiles of women murdered, still missing, and unidentified. Part 1 of 2.

Hello everyone. A few months ago, I posted an extensive write up on the DeOrr Kunz case and later the Asha Degree case with several other missing people’s cases sprinkled in between, which many readers seemed to enjoy. Those can be found here:
Today, I wanted to do a similar long form write up but this time, I wanted to switch gears and talk about Ridgway and his victims.
Terms used
The scene- A term used by Bundy and LE to describe the people with high risk lifestyles those who are homeless, sex workers, exotic dancers, drug users, hitchhikers, and others who are down and out
The Strip- An area of Pacific Highway South near the airport in extreme south Seattle (no longer Seattle) known for the scene. Most GRK victims were last seen in this area.
The Avenue- An area of extreme north Seattle along Aurora Avenue North known for the scene. A handful of women disappeared from this area.
Rainier Avenue and Central District- Neighborhoods in south Seattle near the strip. Usually regarded as cheaper places to live. A handful of women disappeared from here.
The camp- An area of downtown Portland known for prostitution
Dating- A term used to literature to refer to soliciting prostitutes. Ridgway used this term as did many sex workers. I use this term below as that is what is described in GRK literature. I don’t use it dull what was happening in these exchanges.
Boyfriend or protector- Many of the women in this case had boyfriends or protectors who were actually pimps. Which is why some of these women had the same “boyfriends.” If the men who were involved were not believed to be pimps, I tried to note that.
Living in the Pacific Northwest everyone you meet seems to have had a close encounter with a notorious criminal. I know a woman who Bundy followed on April 17th 1974 in Ellensburg, Washington before he abducted Susan Rancourt. I talked to a barber once who told me he cut Ridgway’s hair and used to watch Constance Naon (one of Ridgway’s victims) take dates to her place across the street in the Rainier area. In college I used to shop at a Safeway store that Bundy worked at. Some days it seems like everyone I talk to has the same stories, close encounters, and bizarre brushes with some of the worst men in America. This is the story of one of those men, Gary Leon Ridgway.
I believe that Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer, was a much more prolific predator than most people online seem to think and I wanted discuss these crimes because his victims are often dismissed while they deserve to be remembered.
In the true crime community, there is a near reverence for Ted Bundy. On the other hand, Ridgway is considered boring and banal. These feelings of course are perpetrated Bob Keppel’s book, Riverman; Ted Bundy and I hunt for the Green River Killer which contains large swathes of interviews from an incarcerated Ted Bundy. King County authorities interviewed Bundy on Florida’s death row in hopes of getting confessions out of him during the 1980s. Instead Bundy wanted to talk about the new murderer plaguing his home state, the Green River Killer. In his interviews, Bundy provides interesting insight into the mind a killer and many of his predictions about the “Riverman” turned out to be true. Naturally, some of his predictions were also false. Bundy, the master manipulator, was able create a narrative about Ridgway and his victims which has bled into the public consciousness. The descriptions of Ridgway’s crimes have been controlled by Ted Bundy’s opinions and his apparent distaste for Ridgway. In discussions on this case I often see people say things like “Ridgway isn’t interesting to me because his victims were high risk” or “Ridgway was dumb, he was so lucky he wasn’t caught.” In my opinion this is unfair to victims of the Green River Killer – in addition to being false. Of course, Bundy is not the only reason people say these things but his opinions have shaped this case. At the end of the day, Bundy should not have a say in how these crimes are perceived.
Most importantly, the victims of these men (and other killers) are not entertainment, these are real people who lives were stolen and all of their stories deserve to be told, even if the man who killed them is considered by some to be “uninteresting.”
Additionally, no one wants to compare to Bundy and Ridgway but I believe the men have more similarities than Bundy wanted people to believe. Bundy hated being compared to the Riverman and I think it is because Bundy knew that the Riverman was more prolific than Bundy could ever be. Bundy’s ego led him to adopt a dismissive attitude towards this crime spree and he always bristled when compared to the “Riverman” and unfortunately these ideas have become gospel. These assumptions aside, I think Ridgway was a much more prolific killer than anyone will ever be able to prove.
There are so many misconceptions about Gary Ridgway that I want to discuss. People say that Ridgway was stupid, he was free to kill as long as he did because no one cared, and finally that he only was able to be “get away with it” because all of his victims were sex workers. Not only are these ideas false, these misconceptions invalidate the stories of Ridgway’s victims.
The first thing I think is often talked about when discussing Ridgway was his intelligence or lack thereof. While it is true that IQ tests showed that Ridgway hovered on the line between impaired and typical, and he apparently had a learning disability that affected his school performance, I will always argue that Ridgway was no dummy. I have worked with the disabled population for several years. That experience taught me that IQ is a bunk way to measure intelligence. Some of my acquaintances have higher IQ scores than Ridgway’s 80, but struggle to keep down jobs or lack social skills. On the other hand, people I have worked with lower IQs (62-80) than that have attended 2-year college, kept down jobs, married, and had families. IQ in and of itself is poor determinate of intelligence. In my experience, IQ seems to measure processing speed, not intelligence. I am not sure if this 100% scientifically accurate, it is just my experience but I think it is worth noting. All that to say, I don’t think Ridgway was nearly as impaired as many armchair detectives make him out to be. The women he fooled were street smart and don’t deserve less attention simply because they were fooled by a “dumb” predator. Perpetrating this myth does a disservice to Ridgway’s victims. I am not arguing that Ridgway was a criminal mastermind of above average intelligence, that is simply not true. I am simply trying to demonstrate that Ridgway cold and calculating, not blundering and impaired.
Forensic Counter Measures
Ridgway’s intelligence is also evidenced by his crime spree and the forensic countermeasures he employed. Many online sleuths have used this information to show Ridgway’s lack of intelligence, but I would argue that his forensic counter measures actually worked. The Riverman would put used gum, beer cans, and cigarette butts near his body dumping grounds. He also put airport and hotel pamphlets near the bodies to make law enforcement think that the killer was a traveling business man which is why his crimes would start and stop. While these attempts at misdirection did not fool law enforcement for very long, it did muddy the water with media coverage. It was reported that the killer was a traveler, a smoker, or a guy who liked big red gum even though Ridgway was none of these things. These little attempts at misdirection fooled the general public in Ridgway’s favor and precious time and resources were wasted forensically testing these items.
When Ridgway began dumping victims in the Portland area law enforcement incorrectly believed that their killer had moved and they minimized their efforts in Seattle, falling right into Ridgway’s trap. The killer also changed his car regularly and made sure that he created false trails. Ridgway changed his car often, he used his own cars sometimes but he also drove his brother’s truck, his parents station wagon and his girlfriend’s/wives’ cars. As many know Gary was employed as a truck painter. He spent a lot of his time at home painting and working on his cars, removing and replacing canopies and just in general altering his vehicles. This allowed Ridgway to move about more freely as he was not seen in only one type of car. This is in stark contrast to Ted who repeatedly used his tan colored bug until it was linked to the murders. At that point Bundy would use Liz Kendall’s bug or make slight modifications to his own car but these efforts paled in comparison to Ridgway’s efforts to conceal his vehicles.
Ridgway also made sure the women he killed were clean when he dumped their bodies. He would have them shower and used the bathroom before his crimes, which had a three-fold purpose. First it put his victims at ease around him. Second, it made his clean up easier (victims wet themselves when being strangled and Gary didn’t like doing extra laundry), and third it removed evidence from his victims’ bodies. This is a just another example of how Ridgway was able go undetected for so long. He thought about his crimes, learned things and then changed his methods to iron out bumps in his murderous plans.
When questioned by investigators he always had explanations for his whereabouts and did not deny “dating” women on the SeaTac strip. Ridgway even used women he had been seeing to create alibis and a false sense of security. In his confession he explained that he would often pick up sex workers for dates repeatedly and not kill or hurt them in order to create a facade that he was a nice guy.
All of these things suggest that Ridgway wasn’t the bumbling criminal he was made out to be.
Another misconception in the Green River case regards victimology. Many people seem to think that all of Ridgway’s victims were sex workers which is simply not true. Contrary to popular belief some of the Green River victims were not prostitutes, although most did lead high risk lifestyles and were part of the “scene” as Bundy called it. Many were homeless, addicts, sex workers, exotic dancers, and hitch hikers, but not all. Carol Ann Christensen had no connections to this scene at all and worked as a waitress at a bar and grill near the airport. Opal Mills, a local high school student, had no arrests for prostitution (or anything else) but was known to hitch hike. Cheryl Wims was not a known sex worker but did struggle with addiction to drugs and alcohol. Ridgway’s victimology was actually much broader than most people assume.
Bundy used this misinformation about GRK’s victims to “prove” that he was a better criminal than the Riverman as Bundy abducted low risk victims, even though we know Bundy killed at least several hitchhikers who were unfortunate enough to get in his car. And Bundy, ever the coward, often chose very small willowy women to victimize. Ridgway on the other hand was physically strong even though he appeared slight. Ridgway was able to control and subdue many women, and while many were small and young some of his victims outweighed him, and a few were taller than him. My point being, both men were cowards and monsters who took advantage of all types of women, their victimology is not that different. Both men killed both low risk and high-risk victims, but of course Bundy doesn’t like to focus on his high-risk victims.
The abduction and murders of women not in the scene, (waitresses, moms at bus stops, and daycare workers) demonstrates that Ridgway was intelligent and organized enough to pull off meticulous crimes which were never solved... he just preferred easier targets.
Another misconception about Ridgway is that he was only was allowed to kill due to the women he victimized; this is a partial misconception. In 1982, right after the first several bodies were found floating in the Green River, a task force was formed made up of 25 detectives from both the city of Kent and King County. For the next 19 years, as many as 40 detectives at a time (70 people if you include officers and support staff) worked solely on this case. At its smallest, 4 or 6 detectives were at work following up on tips. For years, evidence was collected. Men were followed and interviewed. Suspect lists were compiled. When this crime spree occurred, there was no AFIS (automated finger print identification system), no DNA testing, and little cooperation between agencies. A single finger print could take two months to process. Then it had to be compared manually and sent from state to state to check for matches. At the end of the day, the tab for this investigation cost a whopping $30 million dollars.
In the late 1980s detective Matt Haney had a hunch that Ridgway was the most likely killer but it took years for his suspicions to be proved. Using a tip from Marie Malvar’s family, he collected Ridgeway’s DNA in 1987, the same year DNA testing became available. Most other detectives believed other, better suspects were the ones to blame.
Despite the best technology at the time and Haney’s suspicions, Ridgway was not caught. As mentioned above, Ridgway was always a Green River suspect. From his first arrest for solicitation in 1982 until the day he was apprehended Ridgway was among the hundreds of men suspected of being the killer. Despite being on this list, Ridgway evaded capture because on paper, he was a poor suspect. Ridgway was a very typical man in both appearance and life style. He held down the same job for years. He was married and even fathered a son. In his life he was generally even keeled and unremarkable. He was investigated by the Green River Task force several times. Gary’s coworkers even named him “Green River Gary” a moniker he hated, but even his coworkers claimed they were just teasing the awkward guy at work, they did not actually believe he was capable of committing such atrocities.
Moreover, Ridgway had no record of violent offenses. Several violent crimes from his past would come out once he was arrested, but none of these were on his official police record. In the early 80s he was accused of assaulting a sex worker, but the charges were dropped when the woman did not want to testify. Ridgway also had a juvenile record for stabbing a 6-year-old boy, but being a juvenile at the time those records were sealed.
Ridgway was always willing to work with investigators and readily admitted he “dated” women on the SeaTac strip. He allowed himself to be interviewed but nothing solid was ever linked to him. He even gave hair samples and passed two polygraphs. Additionally, Ridgway gained the trust of many working girls he did not kill. He purposely left many women he “dated” unharmed. Some prostitutes who were interviewed by the task force inadvertently protected Ridgway by painting the picture that he was a harmless John who showed them pictures of his son and was polite. Sometimes, he even bought them burgers to eat. This misdirection on Ridgway’s part was just one reason he was never apprehended.
Ridgway was so different than any other captured serial killer at the time that the FBI had to change their profiling techniques and knowledge of serial killers completely when Ridgeway was caught. From the 1980s when profiling was in its infancy until the early 2000s, it was generally believed that serial killers had high IQ's and were of above average intelligence. It was believed that serial killers had a hard time staying in relationships or keeping down jobs. Further, many experts in the field claimed that serial killers basked in the glory of their evil deeds, taunted police, and watched news coverage of their crimes. It was also taken as gospel that serial killers could not stop once they started killing and in general killers did not cross racial lines. None of these things applied to Gary Ridgway, adding to law enforcement’s belief that he was not a “good suspect.” (While Ridgway did write one anonymous letter to a newspaper, he did not aggressively flaunt his suspect status, or openly taunt police as some of the other men did.)
When DNA linked Ridgway to his murders, task force members weren’t totally shocked but they were surprised that it did not match one of the better suspects such as Melvyn Foster, William J. Stevens II, or any one of the violent pimps, husbands, boyfriends and exes who had been interviewed. They assumed their killer would be one of the men with more violence in his background, possibly a rape conviction, or one of suspects taunting them with letters and phone calls, but it wasn’t. Only detective Matt Haney wasn’t surprised.
As the phrase goes, hind sight is 20/20. I think this is a good saying to remember with this case. Once Ridgway was arrested many pieces fell into place and it painted a picture of an unhinged killer roaming King County, but no one piece of evidence was a smoking gun in this case. Ridgway dressed like the killer, plaid shirts and jeans but so did half of the working-class men in King County. Ridgway drove vehicles similar to the one reported by many witnesses, but how many men drove by the airport in tan or blue pickups and aged station wagons? Marie Malvar’s boyfriend was convinced Gary’s truck was the one he saw Marie climb into before her disappearance, but when Ridgway’s home was searched nothing of Marie’s was there. Investigators hit a brick wall, but kept Gary Ridgway in the back of their minds. Every little piece of evidence was part of a puzzle in this case but nothing conclusively tied Ridgway to anything more than being a client of many of the working girls in the area. This tip by Marie’s family and boyfriend was what lead Det. Haney to collect Ridgway’s DNA in ’87.
NOTE- before I go on, I just want to say that it would be naïve of me to pretend that the victims’ professions and life styles did not affect the investigation. It absolutely did. It affected public perceptions, law enforcement response, and media attention and these women did not receive the same attention as the Ted victims from seven years prior. For example, in late 1983, citizens called for a public forum and called for an “end of prostitution.” Detective Mullinax suggested that the killer was the problem, not the prostitutes and there were some very awkward moments before the citizens told him they just wanted Seattle to be free of sex workers. This was just one example of the public opinion not being kind to these women.
In this piece, I simply want to point out that law enforcement response was not as minimal as some people make it out to be. There have been many cases where law enforcement has completely dropped the ball when investigating the murders and disappearances of sex workers such as the Grim Sleeper investigation, but I do not think the Green River Task force deserves to be placed in the same category.
Additionally, if Ridgway was not caught ONLY because the police blatantly disregarded the cases of sex workers, then why wasn’t he caught after killing daycare worker Maureen Freeney? Or blonde waitress Carol Anne Christensen? But all measures these two women came from caring families, were white, and did not live in the scene, and were reported missing right away. If Ridgway was only going free due to poor law enforcement response, then he should have been caught after the deaths of the women above, but he was not.
Because of the nature of Ridgway’s victims, media coverage was initially slim and many victims of Ridgway were never reported missing at all. Gary Ridgway was convicted or 49 murders although he admitted to over 71. In recent articles Ridgway has even confessed to leaving 80 bodies in King County alone. Investigators doubt King County was the only county that Ridgway operated in and it is generally believed that a string of bodies found in Tacoma and Portland, Oregon were the work of the Riverman. Some of those women are discussed below. Because of this information I am inclined to believe that Ridgway has many, many more victims who have never been found, who are unidentified, who were never reported missing or whose deaths were attributed to other things. Many missing women have been placed on the “Green River List” because the pool of potential victims is much larger than only missing sex workers. With the addition of these victims I think it is very possible that Ridgway’s victim count far surpasses any official numbers and may make him one of the worst serial killers in America.
Some of the women I believe were victimized by Ridgway are profiled below.
In conclusion, all of these things point to Ridgway being a much more prolific, cunning killer than many have made him out to be. If Ridgway’s known victim count is 70 (charged with 49) and he himself claims there is 80 bodies in King County alone, I think it is safe to assume the real number may be closer to 100.
Ridgway has only been charged with homicides if he both confessed to and there was one or more pieces of evidence against him. For example, if he led investigators to a body he was charged with that murder and all the murders of the women he left in the same cluster. He has also been charged with other cases if there was circumstantial evidence, fiber evidence, paint chip evidence, or DNA. He has not been charged with the murders of women still missing or women whose cases cannot be linked to him in corroborating way, which is why the confession list is so much longer than the charged list. Also please remember that mass murders are not known for their honesty and we have to take confessions with a grain of salt.
The official Green River Victim list is challenging to compile because different agencies have different lists, some add women are still missing while others add only known homicides. Some add all suspected victims, some do not. Some add victims to the list only if Ridgway is the prime suspect, and other lists add victims whose cases have other prime suspects but Ridgway is still a possibility.
Below I have completed write ups of women I believe were victims of Ridgway as well as a section to remember his proven victims, both known and unknown.
NOTE- I want this section to tell the women’s stories in a respectful way and initially I did not want to focus on either their professions or their physical appearances, but I was also wanted this section to be authentic and I don’t want to sugar coat any of these stories. For many of the victims there is very, very little information available. I think this is why sometimes their appearances are mentioned as it sounds better to say “At age 21, she was a tall woman with thick red hair and a great smile” rather than she died at 21. Additionally, some of these victims’ stories are not very pleasant and a in a few cases information from family and friends is unflattering or downright negative (Wendy Coffield and Marta Reeves specifically). Rather than skip these women or pretend these things did not occur I chose to include them in the summaries below. I added as many positives as I could and tried (key word tried) to shy away from information solely about their appearances or criminal records but sometimes no other information is available. I hope everyone can understand that my intention is to remember these women and their lives in the best possible way while realizing that not everything is positive. I ask you for only respect down in the comments. Thank you.
In remembrance
Gary Ridgway pled guilty to the homicides of the 49 people profiled in this piece. (Because this is a mystery sub reddit and the write-up will have to be put into broken into several pieces, I will begin with the Jane Does Ridgway confessed to killing. All other victims both potential and confirmed are placed in chronological order to the best of my ability.)
Jane Doe B-10 was a murder victim who was found in 1984, near the remains of Cheryl Wims. She was a white female between the ages of 12 and 19. She most likely died in the summer of 1983. She may have had brown hair and was around 5’5’ and 120 lbs. She was likely left-handed. She had a healed injury to the front of the left side of her skull. She is not Rose Cole, Janel Peterson, Susan Cappel, Lisa Dickinson, Wendy Huggy, Kase Lee, Keli McGinnis, Anna Anderson, Kristi Vorak, Amy Matthews, Teresa Hammon, Cheryl Wyant, Denise Dorfman, Carol Edwards, Linda Jackson, Angela Meeker, Andria Bailey, Dean Peters, Joan Hall, Patricia LeBlanc, MaryJo Long, or Kerry Johnson.
Jane Doe B-17’s bones were found twice. Some bones were found in 1984 and some more were found in 1986. She was most likely a white female, aged 14-19, around 5’4”- 5’8” and average weight, around 120-140 lbs. She most likely died in 1983. Ridgway said she died in Spring or Summer 1983. Isotope testing shows she is possibly from the Northern United states (Alaska, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota) or Canada. She is not Rose Cole, Janel Peterson, Susan Cappel, Lisa Dickinson, Wendy Huggy, Kase Lee, Keli McGinnis, Anna Anderson, Kristi Vorak, Linda Jackson, Andria Bailey, Joan Hall, Patricia LeBlanc, MaryJo Long, Carol Donn, Barbara Cotton, Pollyanne Carter or Kerry Johnson.
Jane Doe B- 20 was a murder victim who was discovered in 2003 after Ridgway led investigators to her body. Her skull was not recovered so no composite can be made and no race can be determined. She died in between 1973-1993 but most likely died in the late 1970s. She was likely 13-24 years old. Ridgway says she was a white woman about 20 years old with brown or blonde shoulder length hair who he killed in Summer ’82 or ’83. Ridgeway claims to have started his crime spree in ’82 but it could have been earlier. He does not remember killing anyone in the 1970s but admits it is possible. Jane Doe B-20 is not Keli McGinnis, Andria Bailey, Cora McGuirk, or Deborah Tomlinson.
Wendy Lee Coffield was a young woman whom life had never treated kindly. She was a junior high dropout, a chronic runaway, and a hitchhiker. She never had the chance to land on her feet and start over. She was only 16 when she was murdered in 1982. To add insult to injury, her own family even said they weren’t surprised when her “lifestyle” caught up with her. Gisele A. Lovvorn was a 17-year-old Dead Head and free spirit who wandered the country watching Grateful Dead shows with her on again off again boyfriend. In early high school was a straight A student before dropping out. In the summer of 1982, she called her parents in California to tell them she was going to travel home and re-enroll in high school. She left her apartment one Saturday in July at 1 pm to “turn 3 or 4 tricks” she never made it home and her parents were never able to see their free-spirited daughter again. Debra Lynn Bonner was 22 when her body was found in the Green River. She had dreams of getting a GED and joining the navy but an abusive relationship and addiction lead her to a life on the streets. Despite her profession, Debra called her parents regularly and was trying to pay off her debt (She had several unpaid tickets in Tacoma). She was planning to visit her father after he had an eye operation but she never made it home. Marcia Faye Chapman nicknamed Tiny, was a mother of three who engaged in sex work only to support the three children she loved so much. She left her apartment one August evening and disappeared into the night. She was only 31 years old. Cynthia Jean Hinds had no criminal record but frequented the streets of south Seattle. Everybody called the 17-year-old her nickname, Cookie. Her boyfriend and probable pimp reported that he last saw her get into a black Jeep on August 11th 1982. Her body was later recovered from the Green River. Opal Charmaine Mills was a biracial 16-year-old who, according to her brother, struggled to fit in in a racially divided world. She never got the chance to learn to be comfortable in her own skin because she disappeared after going to work in 1982. An occasional hitch hiker, Opal had no other links to the “scene.” Opal and her friend Cookie (Hinds) had been hired to do some painting near Angel Lake park. Opal called her parents to pick her up from work, but she never made it home. Terry Renee Milligan, a 15-year-old, hadn’t been seen for several weeks when her live-in boyfriend reported her missing and then immediately skipped town. Terry was a bright student who wanted to study computer science in college and dreamed of going to Yale. Terry gave birth to a son as a teenager and her hopes of college changed course, although friends have always explained that Terry adored her son and care of him the best she could. She was also musically inclined and sang in the church band all throughout her childhood. She was seen last arguing with another woman outside her apartment after that she disappeared. Mary Bridgett Meehan was adopted as a young child and grew up in Bellevue, a wealthy suburb east of Seattle. She was a compassionate soul who loved animals and children. She wanted to be a mother. Two miscarriages at ages 15 and 16 left her broken inside, her family and friends explained that she was never the same. She starting using drugs and drifted around the Seattle area and began engaging in sex work. Later, Mary gave up another baby for adoption after her boyfriend kicked her out because he didn’t want kids. But unfortunately, less than a year later, the cycle began again. Mary was back living with a dead-beat boyfriend and pregnant, except this time she was determined to be a good, stable mother, but she never got the chance. She left her motel room and vanished into the night at 8 months pregnant in September 1982.
Debra Lorraine Estes went by the name Betty Jones on the street. She was barely 15 and had entered the scene five years earlier at age 10. Her parents were always worried for her, driving the streets looking for their daughter and bailing her out of the King County jail under various names and aliases. Her pimp was a sleazy older man whom occasionally lived with her and her friend Becky Marrero. She was last known to be alive in September 1982, but may have been alive into December. Linda Rule’s parents divorced when she was a teen and the family disintegrated with each person taking their own paths. She last seen leaving her apartment and walking to Kmart on Aurora Avenue north, to buy clothes. When she did not arrive back home, her boyfriend assumed she had been arrested, but he couldn’t find her at any of the local jails. He did not think Linda was working as it was rare to see girls working Aurora Avenue during the day time. He immediately filed a missing person’s report. Unlike many other men in this case, her boyfriend was not believed to be a pimp. 16-year-old Linda and her boyfriend were saving up for their wedding and but it would never come.
Denise Darcel Bush, a 23-year-old Portland native had traveled to the SeaTac strip after hearing that money was better in Seattle. She suffered from epilepsy but used medication to keep it under control. She was last seen crossing the street to buy cigarettes. She was never reported missing and her friends all assumed she had simply had decided to go back to Portland. At the time, it was hard to know if she or many of the other girls left willingly or suffered a much worse fate. Shawnda Leea Summers from Bellevue, Washington loved going to the beach. She was last seen at the same intersection on the strip, the day after Denise Bush was last seen. She was not reported missing for months and some girls thought she had moved to Portland to work. Her parents looked for her whenever they could but Shawnda would never reach her 19th birthday.
Shirley Marie Sherrill at age 19 was described as tall and beautiful. She was last seen in the China town area of Seattle having lunch with a friend. They both left the restaurant to work and were picked up by different men. Shirley was never seen again. Like Shawnda and Denise, she disappeared in October 1982. Becky Marrero was the 20-year-old friend of Debra Estes. The two lived together at a motel on the SeaTac strip on and off. In the fall of 1982, Becky left her two-year-old son with her parents and told them she was leaving for a while and going to a place that “babies shouldn’t be”, but she would be back eventually. She packed her bags, borrowed some money from her father to rent a room and vanished. Becky was registered as living at a motel on the strip until December 1st ’82, along with her friend Debra Estes. She never made it home for Christmas like she said she would. Colleen Renee Brockman was 15 years old when she was last seen alive. She worked the SeaTac strip, but her friend Bunny and other girls still thought she was naïve. She trusted her customers wholeheartedly and enjoyed the gifts and dinner dates she got from johns. She was identified through the braces that were still on her teeth when her skull was found in Pierce County years after she was last seen. Delores Lavern Williams was a tall, slender, African American girl with a lovely smile. She worked near the Red Lion hotel near the airport and generally “dated” wealthier, traveling johns. In early 1983 locals and friends realized they hadn’t seen her in a few weeks. She was reported missing. She was only 17 years old. Alma Ann Smith hailed from wine country and was born in Walla Walla Washington. In the 8th or 9th grade she began traveling to Seattle alone on the weekends, something that confused her younger friends. She eventually moved to Seattle and was last seen entering a blue truck with a very average looking male. Gail Matthews was drifting through life in her mid-20s. She lived with her boyfriend, Curt in south Seattle. The couple did odd jobs, tried to win money by gambling, and hitchhiked around the area. Gail would occasionally come home with money that Curt assumed she made doing sex work but he wasn’t sure and didn’t want to ask about it. He saw Gail leave the bar they were at together saying she was going to “make some money”. He later saw her in a car with an average looking white guy with a mustache. For some reason the scene chilled him and he knew Gail was in trouble because she looked scared. He waited for Gail to come home but she never appeared. Curt called the police and the Gail’s family. Gail’s ex-husband had custody of their children, but he was worried about the young woman who he remembered as a meandering soul who wanted to be an artist. A missing person report would be filed in April 1983. Andrea M. Childers moved from California to Washington to move in with her father and step mother. She was a wonderful dancer who wanted to be a dance instructor to children. She taught a dance exercise class and was close to her elderly grandmother. At 16 she left her family home and was never seen again. Sandra K. Gabbert was called “Sand-e” by her family and was known as Smurf on the street. She was on the varsity basketball team in high school before dropping out at age 17. Sand-e moved in with her teenage boyfriend and started working on the SeaTac strip. Sand-e told her mother that she made more in turning one trick than she did working a whole week at KFC. Her mother understood her daughter’s desperation and commissioned her to “be careful.” They also talked about taking a trip to sunny California sometime. That was the last time Sand-e and her mother even spoke. Kimi Kai Pitsor street name Melinda was a happy 16-year-old who loved glitter, unicorns, and the color purple which was fitting for the young woman whose native Hawaiian name means “golden sea at dawn.” Kimi Kai always wanted to be an adult and when she turned 16, she left home to move in with her boyfriend/protector in downtown Seattle. Her boyfriend last saw her talking to a date in a blue pickup. She never made it home and her boyfriend called the police with the description of the vehicle. She had left home and entered the scene less than two months before. Tragically, Kimi Kai was the third of Joyce Pitsor’s three children to pass away. Kimi Kai’s two older siblings died as infants. Kimi Kai’s mother, Joyce later adopted three other children. Sandra D. Major was from Rochester, New York. Her family knew she worked as a prostitute and while they weren’t thrilled with her lifestyle, they always kept in touch and “loved her the same.” The last contact the Majors had with Sandra was a post card sent from Seattle. After that they lost touch. Sandra was believed to be last seen on Aurora Avenue north in 1983 at age 20. A TV in program in 2013 highlighted the unidentified victims of the Green River Killer, prompting the family to contact the police. Sandra was identified and laid to rest. The family gave a brief interview in which they asked for privacy. Because of this very little is known about Sandra’s personal life.
Marie Malvar’s came from a large Filipino family. At 18 she had left home but called her parents and siblings regularly. Marie’s boyfriend saw her enter a blue truck and drive away. She was gone a while and he decided to track down the truck. He drove where he saw the truck go but couldn’t find Marie or the vehicle. He was hesitant to contact the police due to their backgrounds and was even more scared to tell Marie’s parents about her profession. After 4 day had passed her boyfriend, brother, and parents went to the police station to report Marie missing. They even drove around with police until they found a similar looking truck. Police questioned the man and took down his information. His name was Gary Ridgway. But Marie wasn’t in his house and he had no record of note, so the police left. The man was one name among hundreds that they took back to the task force offices.
