More Dead Scientists Devvy Kidd April 21, 2002

Back on December 31, 2001, I posted a piece on the unusual number of micro-biologists who died within a 33 day period. If you haven't read that piece, you should so this update will make sense to you:

http://www.devvy.com/micro_20020104.html

I have received an update from Ian Gurney and with his permission, below is that information:

April 15, 2002

By Ian Gurney

"And so to the New Year, and still the scientists keep dying. On February 9th. the Russian daily Pravda reported that:

"The head of the microbiology sub-faculty of the Russian State Medical University, Victor Korshunov has been killed. The body of the dead professor, who had head injuries, was found on Friday 8th. February, in the entrance of the house in Academician Bakulev Street, Moscow, where the 56-year-old scientist lived."

"Pravda went on to reveal that: "It was the third death of a scientist within a few weeks. In January, the Russian Academy of Science lost two scientists, both well known around the world. Academician Ivan Glebov died as a result of a bandit attack in St Petersburg and corresponding Member of the Academy of Science Alexi Brushlinski was killed in Moscow."

Exactly a week later, on February 16th. The Times ran the following article:

"Detectives were last night trying to unravel the circumstances in which a leading university research scientist was found dead at his blood-spattered and apparently ransacked home. The body of Ian Langford, 40, a senior Fellow at the University of East Anglia's Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment, was discovered on Monday night by police and ambulance men. The body was naked from the waist down and partly wedged under a chair.

"It is understood that doors to the terraced house were locked. A post-mortem examination failed to establish how Dr Langford, who lived alone in the house in Norwich, died."

"Back to the west coast of the United States, where, on February 28th. San Francisco's Mercury News reported that:

"Dr. Tanya Holzmayer, a pioneering scientist, was surprised Wednesday night to find a Domino's Pizza deliveryman at the front door of her Mountain View home. Moments later, a former colleague appeared out of the dark, shot her dead and ran off."

"Dr. Holzmayer was a Russian born genomic scientist who had co-invented a tool that has helped find hundreds of molecular targets to combat cancer and HIV. Holzmayer and her family came to the United States in 1989. Until December, Holzmayer had served a four year tenure as senior vice president of genomics for PPD Discovery, a division of PPD Inc. of Wilmington, North Carolina. Her killer, said Mercury News, was Chinese immigrant Guyang Huang, a former colleague who began working as the director of molecular biology and bioinformatics with PPD Discovery in early 2000.

Mercury News continued:

"Huang appeared from behind the deliveryman. He shot Holzmayer several times at close range in the chest and head. As Holzmayer fell in her doorway, Huang ran to a Ford Explorer and drove away. Less than an hour after the shooting, Huang called his wife, according to Foster City Police Capt. Craig Courtin. He told her about the shooting and that he was going to kill himself, then he hung up. Huang's wife called the emergency services and Foster City police used search dogs to comb the area. They ran into a jogger who had seen Huang's body lying off the walkway that locals call "The Levee." He had fired a single bullet into his head, according to Robert Foucrault, San Mateo County's acting coroner. Police said that at this stage in their investigations there appeared to be no motive for the murder."

Still the deaths continue. On March 25th. 2002

9News.com - part of K*USA TV in Denver, reported that:

"Denver car dealer Kent Rickenbaugh, his wife, Caroline, and their son Bart were killed Sunday in a plane crash near Centennial Airport. Pilot Dr. Steven Mostow also died. Dr. Mostow, 63, was one of the country's leading infectious disease experts and was Associate Dean at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. Mostow was a crusader for better health, an early advocate for widespread flu vaccinations and more recently an expert on the threat of bioterrorism.

"The plane was headed for Centennial Airport from Gunnison Airport when Dr. Mostow reported engine trouble around 4:30 p.m., Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jerry Snyder said. National Transportation Safety Board investigators said "Weather did not appear to be a factor in the crash",

"Back to England, and on March 27th. The Times carried an obituary for yet another leading microbiologist, stating that:

"David Wynn-Williams, an award-winning microbiologist died when he was struck by a vehicle while out jogging. In 2000 he was appointed leader of the Antarctic Astrobiology Project, which explores the effects of environmental stress at the limits of life on Earth. Wynn-Williams had assessed the capability of microbes to adapt to environmental extremes, including the bombardment of ultraviolet rays and global warming. This drew Wynn-Williams into collaboration with the Nasa Ames Research Centre, the Johnson Space Centre and Lunar & Planetary Institute, Houston, and Montana State University. A man of boundless physical as well as intellectual energy, Wynn-Williams generated a constant flow of ideas, which entranced both his contemporaries and the young. He was killed in a road accident while out jogging near his Cambridge home."

"So far then, twelve dead scientists, at least eight or nine of whom appear to have died in "unusual" circumstances. Prior to these deaths, on October 4th, a commercial jetliner traveling from Israel to Novosibirsk, Siberia was shot down over the Black Sea by an "errant" Ukrainian surface-to-air missile, killing all on board. The missile was over 100 miles off-course. According to several press reports, the plane is believed by many in Israel to have had as many as five passengers on board who were microbiologists. Both Israel and Novosibirsk are homes for cutting-edge microbiological research. Novosibirsk is known as the scientific capital of Siberia, and home to over 50 research facilities and 13 full universities for a population of only 2.5 million people.

"At the time of the Black Sea crash, Israeli journalists reported that three Israeli microbiologists had, on November 24th, been on board a Swissair flight from Berlin to Zurich that crashed on its landing approach. Of the 33 persons on board, 24 were killed, including the head of the haematology department at Israel's Ichilov Hospital, and the directors of the Tel Aviv Public Health Department and the Hebrew University School of Medicine. They were the only Israelis on the flight. The names of those killed, as reported in a subsequent Israeli news story, were Avishai Berkman, Amiramp Eldor and Yaacov Matzner.

"In light of the deaths of these microbiologists, it is interesting to take a look at a similar set of circumstances that occurred fourteen years ago in the United Kingdom. Once again it involves the deaths of a number of scientists, some in "unusual" circumstances. The report below was taken from The Independent newspaper of August 26, 1988.

"The police said it was suicide, and no doubt they were right. Ex-Brigadier Peter Ferry, a marketing manager at Marconi's Command and Control Systems centre at Frimley, Surrey, had apparently killed himself by inserting power main electric wires into his mouth and then turning on the power.

"The method chosen was perhaps marginally more grisly than in the case of several other Marconi employees. In 1986, for example, Ashad Sharif, a computer analyst who worked for Marconi Defence Systems in Stanmore, Middlesex, tied one end of a rope around his neck, another to a tree, and put his car into gear. Two months earlier, the body of Vimal Dajibhai, a software engineer responsible for checking the guidance systems of Tigerfish torpedos for Marconi Underwater Systems, was found under Clifton suspension bridge at Bristol.

"In March 1987, David Sands, a project manager working on secret satellite radar at Marconi's sister company Easams, in Camberley, drove up a slip road on his way to work and into a cafe at an estimated 80mph. A year later, Trevor Knight, a computer engineer at Marconi's space and defence base in Stanmore, died in his fume-filled car at his home in Hertfordshire. Earlier, two other Marconi employees, Victor Moore, a design engineer, and Roger Hill, a draughtsman, had killed themselves, both seemingly as a result of work pressures.

"There have been at least half a dozen more untoward deaths among defence scientists and others working in the defence field. Marconi is not alone, but it is well in the lead. The best efforts of investigative journalists have failed to establish a link either between the various deaths or between the deaths of the Marconi staff and the Ministry of Defence inquiry, now two years old, into some œ3billion worth of defence contracts awarded to GEC-Marconi. "

The Independent August 26, 1988.

"Interestingly, Marconi was recently declared virtually bankrupt after it's shares fell below "junk" status on the UK stock exchange. Both the chairman and C.E.O. resigned and a great many employees have lost their jobs and pensions as the share price fell from a twelve month high of œ4:45 to only 5 pence. Marconi, once a major player in the defence industry had, over the last few years, moved into the Telecoms sector and suffered when the downturn in technology and telecom stocks came along last year. A company once worth billions is now worthless, a situation that is somewhat similar to Enron.

"Whether these recent deaths are purely coincidence or part of some sinister plot, the reasons for which can only be guessed at, remains unclear. What is clear though, is that being a scientist these days can be a dangerous occupation.

It is odd that all of these deaths, with the exception of a few old ones mentioned by Ian, have all occurred after September 11, 2001. I don't know if there is any connection. One can speculate, based on all the backgrounds and specialities of the scientists, that there is something that makes them all commonly bound. Given the media pounding and 'warnings' by the U.S. government on "possible smallpox" threats, the past Anthrax debacle and other yet to come "crises," this pattern of dying scientists is alarming.

Actually, the statistical likelihood of all these deaths in so short a period of time beats the dead FOB's (Friends of Bill Clinton) hands down. Who invented something that the global masters didn't want the vast unwashed to have access to? A cure for AIDS? A Vaccine? Sustainable something or other? DNA sequencing for longer life, which means more people live longer and the global masters certainly don't want that?

All of these scientists may not have known each other, but their work product, as a whole, has a commonality. The question is: Who was it a threat to?

I did a few searches myself on these new deaths:

Victor Korshunov

Russian Defence, NATO, missile systems:

As a new initiative in the field of science and the arts, the Academy of Creative Endeavors enhances and promotes various human activities on the basis of creative contributions by its members to scientific and social enterprises in their respective areas.

Ivan Glebov

This one was difficult. I could only find one reference in English, all other sites were Russian:

National Transportation Safety Board prelim on Dr. Mostow's fatal crash:

http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/brief.asp?ev_id=20020329X00423&key=1

NTSB Identification: DEN02FA034

Accident occurred Sunday, March 24, 2002 at Englewood, CO

Aircraft:Cessna 340, registration: N341DM

Injuries: 4 Fatal.

This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

On March 24, 2002, at 1631 mountain standard time, a Cessna 340, N341DM, was destroyed when it collided with terrain while on final approach to Centennial Airport, Englewood, Colorado. The airline transport pilot and his three passengers were fatally injured. The airplane was being operated by Lear 171 Inc., of Billings, Montana, under Title 14 CFR Part 91. Instrument meteorological conditions prevailed for the cross-country flight that originated from Gunnison, Colorado, at approximately 1540. The pilot was flying under an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan.

The tower controller at Centennial Airport said that the pilot had been cleared to land on runway 35 right. He said that approximately 90 seconds later the pilot reported he had lost an engine. Radar data from Denver Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) indicates that the airplane made a left 180 degree turn to the south, and then radar contact was lost.

Last, but not least.

I would like to take a moment to focus on the death of Dr. Tanya Holzmayer who was murdered by a former colleague, who was later found shot to death. An apparent suicide.

How much do you really know about black ops government programs?

Ever see the movie The Manchurian Candidate? Very interesting film and one would consider it blarney, except for the fact that this government of the united States of America, the Ruskies, the Communist Chinese and God only knows who else, have all experimented with and used mind control techniques. This a documented fact, not some conspiracy theory.

If you want to read sworn testimony that was given in front of the U.S. Senate by Adm. Standfield Turner about the government's mind control experiments, you can do so at:

http://www.devvy.com/mcveigh4_20010625.html

Yes, this governmnet not only fed LDS to unsuspecting Americans in bars, they devleoped and used mind control for "the greater good." All of this supposedly stopped back in the 70s. Given the number of lies by this government over the past 50 years, can we believe anything they say anymore?

Is it possible that there are 'sleepers' in America and other countries who are triggered by certain responses that cause them to act abnormally, even kill people? Since I have the luxury of not having to work for a living, the time I have spent on researching these kinds of issues over the past 11 years is ten thousand times greater than the average person.

Is it possible that there are 'sleepers' in America and other countries who are triggered by certain responses that cause them to act abnormally, even kill people? I say it is. You can agree or disagree, but there is something evil going on here and I'm afraid it's only going to get worse.

how bout that one where the chinese immigrant microbiologist killed the russian immigrant microbiologist and then killed himself? I guess accident happen.

When the article refers to those 'Marconi' employees killed in England in the 1980's, it is talking about researchers working on the Strategic Defense Initiative that were killed. There were at least 20 SDI researchers killed over what I think was a 6 months period of time. Almost all of them were in Europe. But at least one was in america.

It was the third death of a scientist within a few weeks.

....And they thought they were going to get paid for the work they did for Osama and the boys.

Actually, I would put this into the tin foil category.

However, as long as reality is not a hinderance, if you were going to attack a country with a bio weapon, who would be the folks most likely to foil your efforts? Kill them, then start your attack.

You might kill these micro-biologists if:

1) You plan an attack and you don't want people whom you don't control to be able to identify the source of the attack.

2) You anticipate an extended war involving these types of weapons and you don't want your enemy to have these people available to help in the effort.

3) You want to be able to intimidate the surviving microbiologists into doing what you want.

Has anyone found a commonality between these murders aside from the fact they were in this field? Could they have worked for terrorists or others? Has anyone noted a news outlet aside from the internet doing a piece on this? I have been following it for some time, I thought I was one of the few or none that noticed....Nice to know Freepers are so observant :0).

Back on December 31, 2001, I posted a piece on the unusual number of micro-biologists who died within a 33 day period.

2,500,000 people die in the USA every year. I'm sure you could find many professions that represent thousands of dead for their group. I sure you can find within each profession scores that died accidentally or by murder (17,000 per year recently in the USA). Give the nature of random events, one could find clusters of higher incidents in a given period.

Articles like this offer no basis for credibility. Who is supposed to be hind this? An American spook agency? How could it escape the notice of opposition parties. Terrorists? For all the damage they have done, they are incredibly clumsey and incompetant.

I've wasted enough of my time on this topic.

I don't think it likely these people were working for terrorists. They lived in california or massachusetts or london or moscow or israel. the terrorists must develop their weapons in places like afghanistan or iraq. the only commonality is that they were experts in this field. As the author pointed out, the odds of this happening without someone making it happen are so small as to be a non-factor. The story about the chinese researcher killing the russian researcher in california is especially chilling.

I think you hit the nail on the head with plan #1. I have been following this story from the beginning, and I think your explanation #1 is what it is all about. I believe in the next year or two we are going to see some lethal plagues and viruses circulating around the globe.

regarding the 20 or so murders that occurred in the late 1980's of SDI scientists and researchers, none of the murders was solved. They mostly died in spectacular fashion. Not one of the crimes was really solved. When professionals (either CIA or KGB) do the job that's the way it is.

Yeah, one profession that should be a cause for alarm would be being the 42nd president of the United States.

And also, there is that mysterious flu in Madagascar that sickened nearly 23,000 people and killed 700 in a period of a few weeks. As of the end of August, that story has totally disappeared off the radar. I have been doing a google search everyday on Madagascar flu and there is no longer any information about it at all. I have tried searching the WHO and others to find out the progress but there is just nothing being put out on this topic. I haven't looked yet today; I will though, and I'm sure nothing will be there. Some were speculating that it is a strain very close to the type A flu that went around the world in 1918 and killed millions.

Maybe they're dead because they refused to work for terrorists.

Concerning the SDI deaths, I know a lot of guys who are software guru types. These guys live eat and breath their work. Nothing thrills them more than to get their teeth into a good project and work like a dog until it is completed. They are, for the most part, the least likely to take risks with their person. Another thing that has always struck me about these SDI scientists is that most of them were involved in top level work and were heading towards the end of their project when they met their demise, at the very time where they would be tremendously focused on their project.
