Autopsy suggests suicide in hanging of black man in Mississippi

Source: LA Times


Preliminary results from an autopsy on the body of Otis Byrd, whose body was found hanging from a tree in rural Mississippi, strongly suggest the death was a suicide rather than foul play, a federal law enforcement official said Friday.

...

Claiborne County Sheriff Marvin Lucas told the Los Angeles Times that while a bedsheet was wrapped around the manís neck, there were no other visible signs of distress on the body. The manís hands and feet were not tied or bound, his mouth was not gagged, there were no other outward signs of injuries.

...

The sheriff said the man, a riverboat employee, was last seen around March 2 when he and a family member visited a local casino. He said Byrd returned home with someone else, whom the sheriff identified as a friend.

Quite the welcome sign they have at CPAC

Who is up for a Hindu or Buddhist temple visit?


If you live near a "Christian baker" whose religion prevents them from making cakes for same sex marriages, then please consider doing the following:

1. Buy a cupcake from their shop.

2. Take it to the temple and make it an offering.

3. Send them back a picture thanking them on behalf of the deity in question.

Thank you.

History question - Did we call the Irish Republican Army "Roman Catholic Terrorists"?



And if not, why not?

I hope that exercise machine maker paid Harry Reid already


In all of the Harry Reid stories, has the make and model of whatever did that to his face been identified?

And if not, why not?

Can you imagine the liability for incapacitating a U.S. Senator?

(Well, you know, assuming the senator had any capacity in the first place)

Christina Riverfront Walk


While I'm sure most folks who subscribe to the relatively moribund Delaware forum have been down there a bunch, I had managed to commute from the Amtrak station for years when they were building it, as well as visit some of the businesses at the Christina Riverfront without actually managing to get out and take a look at the riverfront walk.

It looks like it would be a lot nicer in warm weather, but with the storm coming, it was on my list of "why haven't I ever been there" places which I put together on a bike ride Sunday afternoon before the storm.

Wilmington DE to Philadelphia

With the storm coming, it was definitely time for a ride.
