Manhattan District Attorney to look into death of Dorothy Kilgallen


Wow.

From The New York Post

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is looking into the mysterious death 51 years ago of newspaper writer and “What’s My Line?” star Dorothy Kilgallen, who was investigating the JFK assassination, The Post has learned.

The stunning development comes after a new book, “The Reporter who Knew Too Much,” suggests Kilgallen was murdered to shut down her relentless pursuit of a Mafia don linked to JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald.



Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for DA Cyrus Vance Jr., confirmed that a staffer has read the book, and reviewed a letter from author Mark Shaw citing new leads, medical evidence, and witnesses overlooked when Kilgallen, 52, died suddenly on Nov. 8, 1965 at the peak of her career.
“I’m hopeful DA investigators will probe any records available and interview witnesses still alive today who can shed light on what happened to this remarkable woman,” Shaw told The Post, which featured his findings last month.

“Victims have rights whether their name is Dorothy Kilgallen or Dorothy Doe, and Kilgallen was denied justice in 1965. That’s why I’m fighting for her.”

Shaw said he has received dozens of e-mails from readers demanding an official investigation. One “called her ‘a patriot’ who should be revered for risking her life to solve the JFK assassination.”

Kilgallen, who wrote a widely syndicated column for the New York Journal-American, was the only reporter ever to interview Jack Ruby, who shot Oswald, and published Ruby’s closed-door testimony to the Warren Commission before its official release. Her enemies ranged from Frank Sinatra to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

The morning after Kilgallen appeared on the hit TV game show, she was found dead in her Manhattan apartment, naked under a robe and still in make-up. The Medical Examiner ruled it an accidental mix of booze and sleeping pills.

But Shaw contends Kilgallen was drugged. He cites a powdery residue on a glass by the bed, and records obtained from the National Archives showing two additional barbiturates in her system.

“There was no evidence that Kilgallen was a drug abuser,” Shaw said Saturday. “Despite the odd death scene and heavy doses, there was no investigation.”

Former ME toxicologist Dr. Stephen Goldner told Shaw the Mafia controlled the Brooklyn ME’s office, which inexplicably conducted the Kilgallen autopsy even though her death occurred in Manhattan.

Weeks before her death, Shaw learned, Kilgallen bought a gun for self-protection and planned a second trip to New Orleans to investigate Mafia don Carlos Marcello.

“If the wrong people knew what I know about the JFK assassination, it would cost me my life,” she confided to hairdresser Charles Simpson, one of several witnesses who gave videotaped interviews unearthed by Shaw.

Shaw urges the DA to interview Ron Pataky, an Ohio newspaper columnist and ex-lover seen huddling with Kilgallen at the Regency Hotel the night before she died. Pataky, now 81, later penned a poem called “Vodka

Roulette,” typed next to the image of a bartender mixing drinks, that reads, “Make one of ’em poison.”

John Newman's new book has some new information we've suspected for a long time and for which he seems to have found the proof.


I say "seems" only because I haven't read the book yet.  I've ordered it from Amazon.com and I hope it arrives real soon.

Meanwhile, John has asked me to share this with you.  I shared it on my timeline on Facebook and I'm sharing it here.

Bush could not figure out what a poncho is


George W Bush could not figure out how what a plastic poncho even is, or how to wear one when they were given out to protect folks from the rain.  And Cheney who was sitting behind Bush was trying so hard not to laugh his ass off.  This was absolutely the best image of the day.

Zapruder's granddaughter is now the chief conspiracy debunker

Have people heard of this? Zapruder's granddaughter has written a book about the Zapruder film. Yes, the Zapruder's need to wring more blood money out of the Zapruder film, the poor destitute things. 

She was just on NPR too.

She seems to be a self professed conspiracy theory debunker.  The whole NPR interview is an unquestioning acceptance of Zapruder as if she's this paragon of virture as she marries the JFK assassination conspiracy, which is a fact, with the alt.right BS "conspiracy theories," which are not conspiracy theories, they're just right-wing BS lies meant to damage their political opponents and to keep their base of rubes in line.

She's allowed to write and get published in the New York Times a stupid commentary stating the obvious that "pizza gate is bullshit."  But, she makes it personal, it's "her pizza place," as if she owns it, which she doesn't not, as if she works there, which she does not. This article is used to establish her bona fides as the new conspiracy debunker. Apparently Gerald Posner had to pass that torch to a new generation. 

She, (surprise) conveniently finds the corporate mass media not only blameless for their failures but stresses they are powerless to do anything about the harm done by the promotion of fake news stories.  Poor powerless Facebook, Cable news, Network news, and The New York Times, boo-hoo-hoo.  Of course it's impossible for them to, oh, I don't know, HIRE WRITERS who could write better commentaries than Alexandra Zapruder.  Could they do that?


No, this cannot be done.
