Condolences to the man’s friends and family.

I will always remember his appearance on SNL where he kicked Janet Reno in the balls.

Something was just not right about that whole story. Not just the raw deal Jewell got, but something more. The FBI was definitely looking for something at Jewell's apartment that they knew was there.

I always wondered if the FBI hadn't planted something but Jewell found it and got rid of it before the search began.

The Duke lacrosse players got the same treatment he did. I would like to see the players sue the hell out of some in the media - Whoreldo is one - who came right out and declared them guilty.

Unfortunately, my memory of Jewell is a front page headline from a local paper..

Poor guy. He got a raw deal.

I’m not aware of any connections, but a certain federal agency is known for its association with murderers (including, being on its payroll, Mr. Horiuchi).

He did sue NBC for half a million, and won. He had a case against the NYT too but that was never settled.

Atlanta television just broke into regular programming to announce Jewel’s death. Cause of death is still uncertain. He was a police officer in the Meriweather County force.

He got five million from the Atlanta Constitution, IIRC.

That was for ONE HEADLINE in ONE PAPER in ONE CITY.

I found out he was dead from Wikipedia.

Somehow, within two minutes of the story breaking, it already had him as DEAD!

As I understand it, Lonnie is still hiding aboard Quantico. He doesn’t even send his kids to school, preferring to homeschool them. You would think that he is guilty of something and the Feds are protecting him.

OK, so he didn’t kick Reno in the balls -

SNL September 27, 1997
“The initial 1996 Olympics bombing suspect Richard Jewell makes a guest appearance, where, in a highly publicized sketch, he punches Janet Reno (played by Will Ferrell) in the gut, with Reno responding, “Same time next week?”. Jewell also appeared alongside Norm MacDonald on Weekend Update. “

It was the New York Post, not the NYT, and they settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. It was Cox Enterprises, owner of the AJC, who never settled.

Clip from Wiki. This guy was treated like dirt.

The pressure only began to ease after Jewell's attorneys hired an ex-FBI agent to administer a polygraph, which Jewell reportedly passed. Despite this, in the searches of Jewell's residence, which he shared with his mother, the FBI confiscated his mother's tupperware collection and family photographs. When these items were returned, many pieces of the tupperware had been broken, and the photographs were ripped apart.
