Content of the article:
Journalist Michael Hastings body was reportedly cremated by Los Angeles authorities against his familys wishes, destroying possible evidence of his mysterious death in a car accident on June 18.
Hastings was killed when his Mercedes crashed into a tree at a high speed and exploded.
Only hours earlier, Hastings sent an email to friends at Buzzfeed.com stating that he was onto a big story and had to go off the radar for a bit. He also warned his colleagues that they might be questioned about him by authorities.
A close family friend did confirm that Michaels body was sent home in an urn, meaning he was cremated and it wasnt the request of the family... in fact the family wanted Michaels body to go home,” stated San Diego 6 reporter Kimberly Dvorak on Sunday (video below).
According to Dvorak, Hastings spoke with an unidentified attorney before his death who has all the details about the story Hastings was working on when he died.
Hastings had not told his wife about the story because he said he wanted to protect her from knowing anything so if anything were to happen to him nothing could happen to her, said Dvorak.
“Despite the LAPD’s categorization of the Hasting fatal accident as a ‘no [evidence of] foul play,’ LAPD continues to ignore FOIA [CPRA in Calif.] requests made by San Diego 6 News for the police report, 9/11 call, autopsy, bomb squad and toxicology reports, or make the Mercedes available for inspection which only fuels conjecture,” added Dvorak.
Dvorak also claimed that she has been threatened for investigating Hastings death.
For reasons unknown, the LAPD and Los Angeles firefighters were told not to talk to the media about Hastings death.
Former White House counter-terrorism expert Richard Clarke stated in June that Hastings’ car crash was consistent with a car cyber attack,” in which an automobile is actually controlled by a third party electronically.
thanks for posting the body of the article! I did not know how :(
so glad Hastings told some one about what he was working on before he was killed. Hopefully That person can remain safe and unknown.
Any dead lawyers pop up recently?
Holy cow check this out -and it seems to be legit reporting.
Can’t remember who else was following this story- trust you will ping them!
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
Something is just not right. Government does NOT have the authority to cremate a private citizens body.
Tin Hat : was it really him ?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Obama Dead Pool file
Who was Hastings actual legal next of kin?
I love the inference that the City of Los Angeles and its employees, by following standard procedure and not blabbing the details of an ongoing investigation to a moron reporter, are therefore providing dispositive proof of a conspiracy.
Despite denials by the Feds, specifly the FBI , the comment was made that along with emergency personell at the scene ,
were some FBI agents , apparently who just happened to be in the area. ( AT 4:30 AM , in the morning ?..coffee ? )
This case gets curiouser and curiouser ...
First Rule of Survival : NEVER mess with spies , or SPOOKS !!
Yeah. .I had that tin hat moment too. .but I ended up in Wonderland with Alice!
Still. .it’s just so odd.
Interesting, especially the part about telling an attorney. Thanks for the ping.
Wow what list! Lots of work to do that. Great job Nachum!
The evil has reached critical mass.
ping me please
that’s probably who sold him out.
Wow too much to get into tonight but I bookmarked this entire thread to come back to this stuff thanks again.
Good advice. This has gotten very spooky.
” so glad Hastings told some one about what he was working on before he was killed. Hopefully That person can remain safe and unknown. “
You gotta be kidding. There is a reason *they* are capturing ALL communications ~ ~ ~
When my mother-in-law died, her daughter said her mother wanted to be cremated. Her father refused and her brother agreed with the father.
The funeral director told them that state law prevented him being able to cremate anyone unless all the family agreed.
The only thing that’s “spooky” is how much pure supposition is masquerading around as “facts” or “evidence” - are you really this suggestible? Would you like to buy a bridge?
My first thought exactly.
An ‘unidentified attorney’ with a hidden U.S. government badge? Probably. This is how they roll, especially when they’re tapping your phones and Email.
Read about this man’s death a couple of years ago. Very similar to the Hastings accident.
In CA the next of kin, which would be Hastings’ wife, had full legal authority to decide without consultation with anyone else.
The first rule of going off the radar is not to announce that you are going off the radar.
HTF did we bury a non-citizen TERRORIST after the Boston bombing in a hidden ceremony with government approval?
In some states it’s spouse, parent OR child. But the law is very specific on cremation. Government releases body to next of kin ; they make arrangements.
Either the statement is incorrect or something is terribly wrong
I suppose you are referring to the Constitution. Hah!
No one “claimed” the body. Buried by gov in a paupers grave ala Mozart
Church’s often own the cemetery and can control who is buried on their hallowed grounds. Find where Boston buries their paupers
Null and Void - I am surprised that you would find this story amusing. I don’t find it amusing at all. Anyone, patriot or not, who threatens the establishment is at risk. I’m surprised you don’t recognize that.
Burial is controlled by state law.
Chicago style politics goes nationwide
Boston bomber’s family wanted the body returned to his home country. The country didn’t want him, if I recall.
Should’ve dumped the body at sea next to Osama F Laden’s stinking corpse.
if he was trying to stage his own death, he wouldn’t be able to threaten the reporter for investigating
obviously, the ones doing the threatening are govt types.
obviously, the ones that ordered the cremation are govt types.
the only question we need and answer to is... what was he working on? what was the story?
whoever the lawyer is needs to find a way to drop a thumb drive on the reporter. of course, if he’s reading this... do not type up/ video your information while on a computer connected to the Internet. make 10+ copies of that thumb drive... do not put them in the mail or FedEx... walk them to your intended targets the the note that they should not be plugged into any computer attached to the Internet.
when you have information like this, figuring how to get it out is an interesting thought exercise.
Same thoughts here. The lawyer sold him out. Her’s to someone else knowing what the story was. It wasn’t enough to kill Hastings but to destroy any evidence the body might tell such as gun shot, drugs, etc. Will one of the coroners end up missing, dead or driving a new BMW?
True!! Maybe they took a long walk in a quiet boring place and exchanged only papers in code :)
I sure hope fervently that it wasn’t the lawyer that sold hi out...
Amusement is not the point of the ping list.
Then what was the point of the image?
