    It’s a plot twist not even Alfred Hitchcock would think of.

    The elderly Brooklyn woman found this month living with the skeletal remains of her son, possibly for as long as 20 years, is a legally blind hoarder who may not have even known he was there, NYPD sources said.

    The chilling discovery of the skeleton was made Sept. 15 when a relative showed up at Rita Wolfensohn’s Midwood home to fetch her belongings and take them to her in the hospital.

    In a debris-choked second-floor bedroom, sister-in-law Josette Buchman found a “completely intact” skeleton, dressed in jeans, socks and a shirt, lying on its back on a thin mattress on the floor, police sources told The Post.

    “It’s like some reverse ‘Psycho’ scene,” a law enforcement source said at the time, referring to Hitchcock’s 1960 horror flick in which a son, Norman Bates, keeps his dead mother’s remains in a basement.

    But investigators now believe Wolfensohn may not have known she was living with the corpse of her son. Cobwebs and garbage filled the room where the body was found — as if “a garbage truck had dumped its load” inside, police sources said.

    The room reeked of rotting food, but not of decaying flesh, the sources said.

    When police questioned the ailing woman, she spoke about her son as if he had simply moved out.

    Her brother, Joseph Buchman, and his wife, Josette, would not say where Wolfensohn — whose husband, Jesse, died in 1987 — is staying, but they were seen Saturday visiting a Long Island assisted-living facility.

    Joseph told The Post he hadn’t been close to Wolfensohn for years. Another relative said he wouldn’t comment on the grisly mystery until “after the funeral.”

    The widow’s Brooklyn home, a well-appointed, two-story brick house worth about $700,000, had fallen into disrepair. Last week it was empty, with mail piling up. No one answered multiple calls to the home phone.

    Authorities have not officially identified the body but believe the man was Wolfensohn’s son and that he died of natural causes. They would not provide a name.

    According to public records, Wolfensohn had two sons, Michael and Louis. Relatives said they had not seen Louis — who today would be 49 years old — in 20 years.

    Michael died in 2003 at the age of 38, according to court documents.

    A Pennsylvania woman made a disturbing discovery on Wednesday when she found a badly decomposed body in the attic of her home. Authorities suspect it’s her grandson, who disappeared two years ago.

    Zanobia Richmond, 65, heard something fall in the upstairs of her Erie home Wednesday afternoon, according to Erie’s WICU 12 News. When she went to investigate, she was shocked to discover a badly decomposed body had fallen against her attic door.

    Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook is now working to confirm the identity of the body, but told The Erie Times-News officials are confident the body is Richmond’s missing grandson, Dyquain Rogers.

    “That is where he lived,” Cook said.

    The house where police found the body believed to be that of Dyquain Rogers.
    Authorities will use dental records to make a positive identification. The coroner’s office has not provided a timeline as to how long that might take.

    Rogers’ mother, Carol Rogers, told WICU 12 News she was shocked by the discovery.

    “I just kept pretending like he just left Erie, so I just kept focusing on that, that he left here, that’s what I kept saying,” Carol Rogers said.

    Dyquain Rogers, was 21 years old on Nov. 1, 2014 – the day he was last seen alive at his grandmother’s home. Later that night, he failed to show up for his management job at a local Little Caesar’s.

    When family members discovered he’d left behind his cell phone, wallet and glasses, concern turned to panic. On Nov. 3, Rogers’ grandmother reported his disappearance, according to police reports.

    Richmond reportedly told police she had seen her grandson talking on his cell phone before he went missing. However, when police dialed the last number he called, the individual on the other end of the line denied knowing Rogers.

    Rogers’ family and friends told police it would be out of character for him to take off without notifying anyone and they did not know him to be upset or depressed prior to his disappearance.

    Was very interested in this one myself...Watched a video recently on YouTube on this. A good theory he put was the modified stove Dyatlov put in the tent. There were a few meme vets that were drunk, it’s possible one of them knocked over the stove or caused some sort of accident and things started to catch fire and smoke.

    It explains why they’d leave the tent and walk to the forest edge. Also why the 2 that were found dead there had burns on their hands...

    If three eyewitnesses are correct, terrorist hijacker Mohamed Atta came to the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites-Longboat Key Sept. 7 — the day the media announced President George W. Bush would be coming to the area Sept. 11 to speak at a Sarasota school. Atta may have been there to meet a second hijacker, Marwan Al-Shehhi.
    --
    President George Bush began the morning of September 11, 2001 on Longboat Key, Florida. At about 6a.m. Longboat Key Fire Marshall Carroll Mooneyhan was at the front desk of the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort as Bush prepared for his morning jog. From his vantage point Mooneyhan overheard an exchange between a Colony receptionist and a security guard.

    A van occupied by men of Middle Eastern descent had pulled up to the Colony stating they had a “poolside” interview with the president. The self-proclaimed reporters then asked for a Secret Service agent by name. Guards from security relayed the request to the receptionist, who had not heard of either the agent or plans for an interview. The receptionist gave the phone over to a nearby Secret Service agent who also was unwarned of any agent by that name or any planned poolside interview. The agent told the occupants of the van to contact the president’s public relations office in Washington, D.C. and turned them away form the premises.
    The reported incident is significant due to the fact that Ahmed Shah Massoud, leader of the Afghan Northern Alliance was assassinated in northern Afghanistan two days earlier on September 9 by two Al-Qaeda agents posing as reporters. During the interview they ignited their video camera that was filled with explosives killing themselves and severely wounding Massoud who died later.

    TL/DR: A dwarf injected with HGH like hormones kills his mother in a drug fueled rage. His father is believed to have been a Muslim king who had an affair with a Jew and was forced to hide his ties to his offspring due to the unrest and scandal it would cause.

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK - Recently declassified CIA documents show that King Hussein of Jordan had a child out of wedlock with an American Jewish actress, who was later beaten to death by their son.
    The file reveals that the 24-year-old king, having divorced his first wife two years earlier, “was especially desirous of female companionship during his Los Angeles visit and it was requested that appropriate arrangements be made through a controlled source of the Office in order to assure a satisfied visit.”

    As Hussein sought to secure financial aid from the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration during the trip, the spy agency arranged a meet with a 32-year-old B-list movie actress named Susan Cabot.

    The memo shows that the clandestine security service went through a ‘prominent’ LA attorney employed by eccentric Hollywood movie producer and aeronautics pioneer Howard Hughes, who invited Cabot to a party thrown by billionaire oilman Edwin Pauley.

    But before attending the tycoon’s festive affair, Cabot (born Harriet Shapiro) was told by her handler “We want you to go to bed with him.”

    “The actress said that she rejected the proposal but finally went to [Hussein’s] party,” the memo states. She later ‘became quite taken with the foreign official and found him to be most charming.”

    A few days later the king asked the CIA to arrange another meeting with Cabot, this time in New York City.
    As the memo notes, the two struggled to keep rumors of their budding relationship at bay, with the Muslim monarch concerned his romance with a Jewish actress could cause political turmoil in his home country.
    It remains unclear how long Cabot and the King maintained their relationship. But in 1961, she gave birth to a boy named Timothy, long-rumored to be Hussein’s son.

    Born a dwarf, Timothy was later adopted by Cabot’s second husband, Michael Roman.

    According to The Los Angeles Times, Cabot’s son eventually grew to 5’4” following “thrice-weekly injections of a hormone derived from the pituitary glands of cadavers. A former attorney once called him a ‘failed human experiment.’”

    In 1986, Cabot was found bludgeoned to death with a weightlifting bar in her San Fernando Valley home, leading to her son’s arrest. Timothy was later charged with involuntary manslaughter, claiming his mother (who suffered from mental illness) had attacked him first.
    He blamed his aggressive response to the incident on use of illegal narcotics.

    During Timothy’s trial, it was revealed in court that Cabot had received a monthly payment of $1,500 from the Jordanian government.

    An attorney in the trial wrote in court filings: “For better or worse, it looks like child support.”

    Timothy Roman was sentenced to four years in prison and a minimum sentence of probation, dying of heart failure in 2003.

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/966umtx.html

    On March 31st, 2005, an elderly man, possibly a transient, was browsing the Christians in Action thrift store in San Angelo, Texas, when he suddenly collapsed. He was rushed to the hospital and died shortly afterwards of what was probably a heart attack. The cause of death was apparently so obvious, and the death so unsurprising, given the man's advanced age, that no autopsy was performed.

    That's where the normal part of the story ends.

    Obviously, in order to notify his next of kin, the man's identity needed to be established; this proved impossible to achieve, but not for the usual reason: instead of carrying no ID, this old, small, grandfatherly type carried IDs corresponding to five four different identities: Harold Frysinger, Roger S. Smith, Gerald Brown, and Peter Turner. He had also managed to damage the centre of his fingerpads to the point of deleting all of their characteristics, effectively rendering him impossible to identify through a fingerprint match. The tone of the investigation suddenly shifted: the most pressing question was no longer about who the man was, but rather about what the man had done.

    What kind of past forces a person well into their golden years (the dates on the various IDs had him born in either '22 or '24) to keep up a charade of fake identities? Authorities didn't know if they were dealing with someone who was, or used to be, a career criminal, or if he was running from a single, terrible incident, but they suspected that the man's real identity had the strong potential to finally settle some old, long inactive case.

    The man, unsurprisingly, had no natural teeth left. A sample of his DNA was taken, and his picture and story widely circulated. Some notable suggestions were made: the deceased bore a strong resemblance to former Boston Irish Mob boss (and FBI informant turned FBI Most Wanted) “Whitey” Bulger, but Bulger is alive and well and was arrested in California in 2011. DNA comparison proved – to general disappointment – that the man could not have been Elmer Crawford, who in 1970 murdered his pregnant wife and children and vanished from Victoria, Australia. People (who probably had recently revisited Apt Pupil) entertained the idea that he could have been Aribert Heim, Austrian SS doctor better known as “Doctor Death”, presumed to have died in 1992 in Cairo, Egypt (and subsequently found to have died in 1992 in Cairo, Egypt).

    While the dead man in San Angelo most likely wasn't anybody truly infamous, the lengths to which he went to keep his true identity a secret so late in his life lead me to believe that he had indeed his reasons, likely nefarious, for not wanting to be found. I'd like to find that reason, because it could be essential in giving closure to those who are invested in another case. If I am wrong, and he was an innocent man running from someone who wanted to hurt him, his death already granted him the ultimate immunity.

    Clement Vallandigham, a 19th century US lawyer, accidentally shot himself dead while defending a murder suspect – because he was trying to demonstrate that a supposed victim could have accidentally shot himself dead. (It worked, because his client was acquitted.)

    On 15 November 2004, Joan and Peter Porco had been found seemingly murdered. The was blood everywhere – a medical examiner later determined that 52-year-old Peter sustained massive head injuries causing his death. Joan was lying in the bed with severe head and facial trauma. She survived but lost the left eye, a portion of the skull and her face was left disfigured.

    A fireman’s ax that was used in the attack was lying in the couple’s blood-drenched bedroom.

    Bizarrely, after the father Peter was attacked, he went about his regular morning routine, unaware that he was dying. He walked into the kitchen, packed a lunch, signed a cheque to cover his son’s parking tickets and attempted to unload the dishwasher. The blow to the head cut off a part of his brain where the judgments are being made. Therefore, he couldn’t assess what was going on, and did everything he normally would as per memory. Finally, he collapsed on the floor and died, leaving the macabre but mind-boggling scene for police to discover.
    There’s blood evidence that Peter walked outside to get the newspaper and locked himself out of the house, but remembered the hidden key under the potted plant to get himself back in.
    The events started in the early morning hours of November. 15, 2004, when their son Christopher Porco decided to butcher them brutally with a fireman’s ax while at sleep. His mother survived and was in total denial, believing her son was innocent of the charges despite the overwhelming evidence. Cristopher Porco lived with his mother during the trial and walked her to court every day until he was convicted on all counts.
    On December 12, 2006, Christopher Porco was sentenced to 50 years to life on each count totaling a minimum of 50 years in prison.
