News Of The World Whistleblower Found Dead

I was hoping this wasn’t going to happen but yes the whistleblower behind the collapse of News of The World has been found dead. Journalist Sean Hoare who blew the lid on the phone hacking scandal was discovered in his Watford home. Mr Hoare became synonymous with the scandal after telling The New York Times that Andy Coulson (the editor at the time) had encouraged staff to intercept the phone calls of celebrities. Police are not treating Mr Hoares death as suspicious. Really?

Australian Mass Murderer Found Dead In Texas

OK people stop looking, Victorian police think they have found Melbourne mass murderer Elmer Crawford. Hmm, so it’s been 40 years since Crawford bashed, electrocuted and then pushed the bodies of his pregnant wife and three young children over a cliff in a car  but at least they can close the file. Victorian police and FBI academy in Quantico believe the body of the unidentified man who died in 2005 at  Texas hospital is the killer, after facial recognition experts studied photos . Unfortunately they couldn’t use fingerprints because he had deliberately damaged his fingertips in what they believe was an attempt to mask his identity. Police are hoping a relative of Crawford will come forward to give DNA or they may have the grisly task of exhuming his 8 year old son.  The discovery of Crawford came after the Herald Sun printed an article about Crawford, which included a computer image of how he would look today.A reader noted the similarity to an old man on a US missing person website and contacted police. US authorities are currently trying to work out what the hell Crawford had been up to for 40 years in the United States. Good luck with that, he had four different names on identification documents he was carrying at the time of his death. If it is him, I hope he had a shit life!

Growing Pains

RIP

Missing Growing Pains actor, Andrew Koenig, has been found dead in a Canadian park. For over a month his parents and fellow actors had been desperately trying to locate the actor who vanished after leaving his Los Angeles apartment and heading to visit friends in Vancouver. Yesterday his parents abruptly walked out on Larry King because they felt it was disrespectful to continually pushing back their interview because of the Seaworld tragedy. Later his parents organized a team to scour Stanley Park and it was there, in dense vegetation, they stumbled across his body. Evidently the actor had given away all his possessions prior to leaving for Canada. During a press conference following the discovery of the body his father said his son had taken his own life.  Koenig played Richard “Boner” Stabone on the hit sitcom Growing Pains. He was 41.

Isn’t It Ironic?

My bad?

OMG, one of life’s little ironies. A man who fought the Canadian courts to keep his pet tiger has been found dead. Hmm, seems his 300kg cat wasn’t too appreciative after all and mauled Norman Buwalda to death. A family member is believed to have found the body in the tiger’s pen. The Southwold township had been trying to stop Mr Buwalda keeping lions and tigers on his property after a 10 year old boy was attacked in 2004. Tiger 1 2 , Owner 0
