    “Its disputed whether the one Capitol police officer died of an injury. He had a stroke the next day.”

    His death was caused by a blood clot in his brain suffered after a head injury sustained during the altercation. He was maced with bear spray and then struck in the head with a fire extinguisher. His dad and my dad went to high school together and his aunt was my older sister’s teacher so this is first-hand information. It was passed along from a family friend who heard it directly from his parents.

    I read that the other four deaths were a heart attack, a fall from scaffolding, a trampling event, and the officer-involved shooting. Of course, I can’t speak to the accuracy of that information.

    I don’t know. I watched again. It still feels like acting to me. His breakdown is too over the top. The way Hollywood might portray a recently traumatized person but not the way I have observed dozens of traumatized people actually behave. It feels vaguely rehearsed to me. And the dig on his former rival researcher (who is not alive to defend himself) really raises a red flag for me. Maybe I’m wrong, but my spidey senses are telling me this story is fabricated.

    I just looked up Tim Fasano and it appears he died of cardiac arrest in his home and not in the woods at the hands of his “assigned Sasquatch predator” as Mark suggests:

    “Rumors circulated on the Bigfoot sites that Mr. Fasano died in the woods from a snake bite. His twin brother, Thomas Fasano, said his brother died at home of cardiac arrest.”

    Okay. I made it 40 minutes in. I am a survivor of a violent assault and attended extensive private and group therapy after the incident. What I’m saying is, I’m pretty familiar with how people processing personal violation trauma behave six months out. I realize everyone is different, but this does not read as trauma to me. It reads as a well-rehearsed meltdown for the sake of publicity. The nail in the coffin was when he said “they” told him that his rival was a “weak kill.” Kind of a sick way to get one last dig in on a dead man. I’m sorry, but I’m not buying this. I honestly think he’s acting out some weird narrative that he’s written in his head.

    And, yes, the natural world is driven by predator-prey interaction. It’s arrogant to think that humans would be given a pass on that. I’m surprised Kerry had this on his show. I haven’t tuned in for a long time, but I always thought he had pretty good judgement.

    @Amy Yes! It was definitely in the PNW and they did have an orchard. And he did have a bunch of his young buddies over which is what he thought ticked off the big male. But when I contacted Wes to ask about it he said it wasn’t his interview. I heard it sometime back in 2017. The only other shows I was listening to then were Sasquatch Syndicate and OK Talk. The guys from Sasquatch Syndicate said it wasn’t their’s either and the guys from OK Talk never replied. I went back through all the old episodes for all three shows and couldn’t find it anywhere. Maybe I’ll try again this weekend. It’s driving me crazy but I feel so vindicated that someone else actually remembers it! ????

    I could be wrong, but I got the impression it was someone he spoke to off-air.

    Oooh, good call. I forgot I had put Cat 3. I need to learn to re-read my old posts before quoting myself. ????

    Glad to hear she was uninjured. That would’ve been an unfortunate epitaph.

    Lake Nyos Death Cloud

    On 21 August 1986, one of the strangest and most mysterious natural disasters in history took place at Lake Nyos – a lake formed atop a volcanic crater in northwest Cameroon. Without warning, the lake released hundreds of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide – estimates range from 300,000 up to 1.6 million – and this silent death cloud spread out over the countryside at nearly 100 km/h (62 mph), suffocating an estimated 1,746 people and more than 3,500 livestock within minutes.

    Chain Reaction at Port of Texas City

    The Texas City Disaster was an industrial accident that occurred on April 16, 1947, in the Port of Texas City, Texas, at Galveston Bay. It was the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history, and one of history’s largest non-nuclear explosions. A mid-morning fire started on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp (docked in the port), and detonated her cargo of approximately 2,200 tons of ammonium nitrate. A mushroom cloud rose 2,000 feet into the air, and two small planes passing above were destroyed. The blast set off a chain of fires amid nearby vessels and buildings as well as a 15-foot tidal wave. The events killed at least 581 people, including all but one member of the Texas City fire department. 4,000 people were injured and an additional 2,000 were left homeless by the devastation. The disaster triggered the first-ever class action lawsuit against the United States government, under the recently enacted Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), on behalf of 8,485 victims.

    Looking at the links at the bottom of the molasses flood page, it appears there was also a beer flood:

    London Beer Flood of 1814

    “The London Beer Flood was an accident at Meux & Co’s Horse Shoe Brewery, London, on 17 October 1814. It took place when one of the 22-foot-tall (6.7 m) wooden vats of fermenting porter burst. The pressure destroyed another vessel, and between 128,000 and 323,000 imperial gallons (580,000–1,470,000 l; 154,000–388,000 US gal) of beer were released.

    The resulting wave of porter destroyed the back wall of the brewery and swept into an area of slum-dwellings known as the St Giles rookery. Eight people were killed, five of them mourners at the wake being held by an Irish family for a two-year-old boy. The coroner’s inquest returned a verdict that the eight had lost their lives “casually, accidentally and by misfortune”. The brewery was nearly bankrupted by the event; it avoided collapse after a rebate from HM Excise on the lost beer. The brewing industry gradually stopped using large wooden vats after the accident.”
