    One month after a Bernie Sanders supporter served the Democratic National Committee and its then-chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, with a civil complaint alleging fraud on behalf of Hillary Clinton, he was found dead in his Florida home. In a video recorded by independent filmmaker Ricardo O. Villalba, the deceased, Shawn Lucas, appeared to be excited to serve papers on the DNC on July 3 — the day before Independence Day. . . Rich's killer reportedly took nothing of value from the 27-year-old — with the exception of his life. His wallet, watch and cell phone were still on his person.

  • Autopsy on MP who criticized Russia (Germany; to rule out assassination)

    A court has ordered a postmortem on the body of politician Andreas Schockenhoff, a sharp critic of Russian president Vladimir Putin, to squash rumors of foul play after his death on Saturday night. […] It had initially been reported that the 57-year-old Christian Democratic Union (CDU) MP had died of heart failure. Schockenhoff was coordinator of foreign policy towards Russia for the German government from 2006 until earlier this year. He was a hawkish voice in the debate over how to deal with Putin and often clashed with his successor Gernot Erler of the Social Democratic Party (SPD). …

    On April 16 in clear weather and calm seas, the South Korean ferry SEWOL listed and sank within two hours, trapping almost 150 innocent victims in her hull. She sank in half the time it took for the TITANIC, which had a fatal gash below its water-line. To date, media reports have focused on rescue and recovery of the victims, which continues as of this writing. Investigators have mostly speculated that the tragedy was the result of cargo shifting during a sharp turn which caused the ferry to list, then capsize and sink below the water. There has been zero...

    Dutchman goes missing in North Korea Published on 8 August 2011 - 4:14pm Dutchman Willem van der Bijl has gone missing in North Korea, according to a report by a local Dutch TV station. The foreign ministry is apparently aware of the disappearance but can do little, given the closed nature of stalinist North Korea. Van der Bijl runs a stamp shop in Utrecht and has visited North Korea on numerous occasions looking for postage stamps and propaganda artwork. His family have not heard from him for two weeks and are extremely worried.

    Washington Times ^ | Stephen Manning
    The wife of the specialist on Russian intelligence who was shot last week challenged reports yesterday that her husband had been robbed, but she said she didn't know if the incident was a brazen street crime or the result of his criticism of the Kremlin. In a brief interview at the couple's Adelphi home, Elizabeth Joyal said reports that Paul Joyal's wallet and briefcase were taken were false. She didn't know of any possible motive for Thursday's shooting outside their home in what she said was a normally safe area. "We really have no idea what the reason was," said...

    The notion of Christ as a family man is not the only raw nerve "The Da Vinci Code" has touched. Albinos are bothered that one of their own has yet again been depicted as a villain. Dan Brown's best seller begins its worldwide debut Wednesday with Tom Hanks as the cryptologist pursuing a 2,000-year-old mystery that could reveal Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and that the Vatican covered it up. Among his co-stars is Paul Bettany, the British actor playing monk- assassin Silas, an albino with red eyes who carries out a series of bloody murders to secure the...

  • Foul play in Madrid skyscraper fire?

    The American Thinker ^ | Feb. 19, 2005 | Thomas Lifson
    Franco Aleman, of, provides us shocking suggestive evidence that the massive fire which destroyed a thirty-two story skyscraper in Madrid may have been the result of foul play. A videotaper caught what appears to be people with flashlights on lower floors of the building as the fire burned above. While far from conclusive evidence, this would be consistent with arsonists doing their work. The building housed the biggest accounting firm in Spain and a prestigeous law firm, so it might be a target for anti-capitalist thugs.

    Death of worker at treatment plant ruled a homicide The Associated Press PATERSON, N.J. - A woman whose body was found in a tank at a water treatment plant drowned and her death has been ruled a homicide, the Passaic County prosecutor said Monday.

A search found her body about 100 feet from where she was working, but her two-way radio and clipboard were found directly below the work area, which had a protective grate to prevent falls, Prosecutor James F. Avigliano said. "That was where we think...
