Wait doesn't McDonalds usually have surveillance especially around the Drive Thru. So couldn't they just see whoever planted the rock with the note under it?

This was a part that they focused on when I saw the TV story:

They haven't ruled anyone out either -- including Wells himself.

Some people believe that this was just an extravagant suicide by Mr. Wells and that everything else was made up just to give his death some notoriety.

Would a 46 year old Pizza Delivery Man really know how to create an intricate explosion device?

Actually what i said was wrong, we never know what he did on his spare time. And who knows maybe he got someone else to make it for him. This is just a crazy story, but isnt there a way too match writing styles? I mean of the little "scavenger hunt notes" and lets say of a note written by the women suspect or the Mr. Rosthein guy?

Good point.


I bet anyone could make a simple explosive with a timer. He could have timed it and figured that if he wasn't able to turn it off at a certain time that he'd have been captured and ready to die.

Weird
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

This actually sounds like something out of the movie SAW if anyone has seen it. I think this was one of the stories i cant remember. Saw 2 is coming out and it would be crazy if it had this kind of story in it.

Something else super weird that Geraldo doesn't bother mentioning:

CrimeLibrary.com wrote:In fact, the only diversion from the daily routine was his nearly all-consuming fascination with an annual game run by the local newspaper, a kind of citywide scavenger hunt called the "Great Key Hunt," in which participants would search for clues in the newspaper which would lead them to keys and clues, which in turn would ultimately lead them to a grand prize.

He was, as one witness put it, "enthralled by the game," and privately, authorities acknowledge that they have been struck by the similarities between the game and the bizarre order of instructions in the notes written by the puppeteer.


The link for the above excerpt is here: http://www.crimelibrary.com/notorious_murders/famous/erie_collar_bomber/index.html?sect=7

'Nuff said... :-°


Haha, I was thinking the same thing. I used to work at a paper owned by Geraldo, and he had a weekly column he would write - it was SO BAD. Geraldo just sucks. Good post, though. ;-D

This is also like the Kennedy assassination. Not the assassination in itself but just how everyone connected, or of high power, or that was there in Dealey Plaza during the time, died mysteriously soon after. That Rosthein guy died of Cancer July 2004, im not sure if its mentioned there.

Definately Wierd.
