Experts Disagree With Feds Over What Killed Reporter- Malfunction or Missile?
Official” details of death of Michael Hastings hotly disputed
Akin to the highly suspicious “suicide” of freelance journalist Danny Casolaro on August 10, 1991, the June 18 late-night death of Rolling Stone investigative reporter Michael Hastings is arousing similar doubts.
Only hours after sending a panicked email warning that the feds were interviewing his close friends and associates, Hastings died in a fiery auto accident on a Los Angeles residential street. Most curious about this incident were reports that the engine block of Hastings’ Mercedes C250 had been located approximately 150-180 feet from his car.
On July 1, AMERICAN FREE PRESS interviewed automotive engineer Dr. Alexander Zhukov, Ph.D., who has testified many times as an expert witness. When presented with the possibility of an engine flying such a great distance from the hood of a car after supposedly striking a tree at 100 mph, Zhukov provided this analysis:
“I would be very surprised. I wouldn’t believe it until I saw it myself. It doesn’t sound very likely.”
That same day AFP also spoke with accident reconstructionist Shawn Gyorke of a company named Crash Data Services. After describing how the Mercedes C250 ranks as a top pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Gyorke broached the topic of an engine being ejected such a fabulous distance.
“The odds are incredibly low,” Gyorke stated. “In fact, it’s beyond the scope of what’s physically possible. I find it incredibly unlikely.”
Unless—as various researchers have speculated—some type of missile struck Hastings’ vehicle.
Equally incredulous were circumstances surrounding the demise of Mr. Casolaro. As revealed in HILLARY (AND BILL) THE MURDER VOLUME, Casolaro’s body was discovered in a West Virginia hotel room. His arms and wrists had been sliced at least a dozen times, with one of the slashes severing a tendon.
Trying to unravel what he referred to as “The Octopus,” Casolaro pried into the shadowy realm of JFK’s assassination, Golden Triangle heroin trafficking, George Bush Sr.’s October Surprise and its relation to Iran-Contra, Mossad spy networks, and the BCCI bank scandal, among many other related subjects.
Needless to say, many powerful international figures came under Casolaro’s scrutiny. On August 9, 1991, one day prior to his death, Casolaro’s housekeeper received a phone call where a male voice threatened, “I will cut his body up and throw it to the sharks.”
Similarly on June 27, Staff Sergeant Joe Biggs, a friend and confidant of Hastings, revealed during a radio interview:
“He [Hastings] had been told, if we don’t like what you write, we will hunt you down and kill you.”
Also, to counter claims that Hastings drove erratically, Biggs told Megyn Kelly of Fox News on June 25:
“His friends and family who know him, everyone says he drives like a grandma.”
As a way of shifting blame away from murder, authorities have posited that Hastings’ Mercedes may have experienced technical difficulties or that he suffered from a medical condition. Other reports cited Hastings’ alleged history of drunken driving. However, in a 2012 book Hastings confessed that he hadn’t consumed alcohol in 10 years. Moreover, mechanics that have weighed in on this case insist that automobiles today almost never explode into fireballs.
Was Hastings’ Mercedes tampered with or struck by some type of drone or projectile in order to create a sensationalized Hollywood movie effect? Possibly so, especially since Hastings, reminiscent of Casolaro, was working on articles whose tentacles stretched in dangerous directions, such as lawsuits against the Department of Defense and FBI, Gen. David Petraeus’ affair, a whistleblower associated with the group Anonymous, and Obama’s current CIA Director John Brennan.
