RIP Dr. John :( :( :( :( :(

1975-76ish I spent three weeks "finding myself" in an isolated bach (cabin) deep in the Marlborough sounds the only music in the place was a battered lp Dr. John's Gumbo.....and a distressed acoustic 12 string guitar with two strings (tiger brand, made in Thailand).....

Human remains found in April at the Oregon home of Dennis Day, one of the original Disney Mouseketeers who has been missing since last July, have been identified as the missing man, state police told TheWrap.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s office was able to identify the body found at the 76-year-old’s Phoenix, Oregon, home as his own, but not with the use of dental records or DNA because of the remains’ condition, a police spokesperson said. No cause of death was given for Day and the investigation is still ongoing.

Okay - he's been missing since last July and uh.....they didn't find his remains until April? I'll have to read the story.

(3 minutes later)

Something seems off. His husband reported him missing in mid July.

This helps a bit. https://www.koin.com/news/oregon/the-mysterious-death-of-a-mouseketeer/2061566295

July 13, 2018: Ernie Caswell fell several times at the home he shared with Dennis Day. Emergency responders went to the house at 510 Pine Street and took Caswell to a hospital. He was later taken to a long-term care facility, where he currently lives.

July 17, 2018: Dennis Day was set to visit friends and come back in several days, the Phoenix Police Department learned. Over the next several weeks, officers made welfare checks at the home.

July 26, 2018: A domestic disturbance call in Coos County brought the Oregon State Police to Hwy 42 near milepost 30. There they found a man and woman in Dennis Day's car. The woman, who was driving, was ticketed for driving with a suspended license and the car was impounded.

July 27, 2018: Phoenix police searched Dennis Day's house and weren't able to find anyone inside. He was then listed as a missing person.

August 8, 2018: A "bad smell" was reported to police coming from Dennis Day's home. Responding officers said they didn't observe or smell anything in the area.

January 28, 2019: The Jackson County Sheriff's Office and the Oregon State Police each provide a detective to help the Phoenix Police Department with the investigation.

April 4, 2019: A cadaver dog was brought in to search the house on Pine Street and found a body. OSP took over the lead in the investigation.

June 6, 2019: Using "strong circumstantial evidence," the medical examiner ruled the body found in the house was Dennis Day. But officials have not said how or exactly when he died.

Dennis Day was 75 or 76 years old at the time of his death.

Maybe (pure speculation) he came to a bad end and was stuffed/buried/something else in the house somewhere.

Neighbors say he was quiet and kept to himself for the last year, but damn that smell!

So all this time someone was mowing his lawn/shoveling snow during the winter months? No trace of anyone coming or going no lights on at night? If not,I'd guess the tall grass, awful smell, & his being missing would've had the locals wondering.

Hillary Clinton's brother Tony Rodham dies

Hillary Clinton's brother Tony Rodham died on Friday evening, the former secretary of State announced Saturday.

"We lost my brother Tony last night. It's hard to find words, my mind is flooded with memories of him today," she wrote on Twitter.

"When he walked into a room he'd light it up with laughter. He was kind, generous, & a wonderful husband to Megan & father to Zach, Simon, & Fiona. We'll miss him very much," she continued.

Rodham, the youngest brother of Clinton, worked for the Democratic National Committee during the 1992 presidential election and entered consulting later in the 1990s. He went on to work on a series of ventures in the U.S. and abroad.

He faced several questions about his connections to the Clinton White House and efforts to leverage his proximity to the president in his business projects and personal life. The New York Times revealed in 2001 that Rodham helped obtain a pardon for a couple convicted of bank fraud in 1982 over the objections of the Justice Department.

Rodham also made an appearance on the 2016 campaign trail as Hillary Clinton returned to her family roots in Scranton, Pa.

Clinton's tweet Saturday racked up several comments expressing condolences over her loss.

"So sorry for your loss. Prayers for your family," one Twitter user wrote.

Anne Hamilton-Byrne dead: Leader of infamous cult The Family dies aged 98
Matthew Dresch
7 hrs ago

The leader of Australia's most infamous cult Anne Hamilton-Byrne has died aged 98.

The former yoga teacher ran a cult dubbed 'The Family', which raised a group of adopted children in preparation for an apocalyptic war.

She kept at least 14 children in the community, bleaching their hair blonde and giving them identical haircuts.

The cult, also known as the Great White Brotherhood, was set up in the mid 1960s in anticipation of a third world war, which Hamilton-Byrne thought would wipe out the human race.

The children, who were taught to regard as the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, were all given her surname and told to behave as siblings.

Hiring wealthy professionals to join The Family - including doctors, lawyers, nurses, architects and scientists - the cult was surrounded by rumours of LSD use, child abuse, and strange spiritual rituals.

Now a book, The Family, has delved into its history, revealing for the first time, in full, the strange and shocking story of one of the most bizarre cults in modern times.

Documentarian Rosie Jones and journalist Chris Johnston have collected testimonies from former followers, associates and detectives surrounding the sect.

"The monotony would suddenly be broken by wild outbursts of punishment and violent anger," an extract from the book reads.

"The children never knew exactly how to escape punishment because the rules changed all the time.

"They were not allowed to say they were unhappy. The children became hyper-vigilant, traumatised, anxious: scared of being punished but not sure how to prevent it.

The children had their hair bleached and wore identical uniforms

Anne Hamilton-Byrne was described as 'beautiful and charismatic'

"Compliance and silence became important to them, to save themselves. They learned to be helpless, while all the adults had absolute power."

Children who grew up in the strange cult were interviewed for both the book and a sister documentary of the same name, which premiered at Melbourne International Film Festival last year.

They opened up about forced drug-use and the sexual assault of children.

In 1987, police swooped on The Family’s lakeside compound and rescued children who claimed they were part of their leader's "future master race".

The group had fallen largely under the radar until a former member, Sarah, went to the police with her tale of emotional and physical abuse.

The children were disciplined with starvation diets or brutal beatings

Followers accepted the glamorous yoga teacher as the female reincarnation of Christ

According to reports, the children were denied almost all access to the outside world and were often subjected to a discipline that included severe beatings and starvation diets.

"Workmen came one year in the late 1970s to fix electricity lines," another extract reads.

"They needed two weeks. The children were told they should talk to the workmen but act 'retarded', to make them think it was a special school.

"'We were taught how to roll our heads, put our heads on one side, talk nonsense, garbled noises, and act uncoordinated,' said one former Uptop child."

The children were frequently dosed with psychiatric drugs, such as diazepam, and on reaching adolescence they were compelled to undergo an initiation involving LSD.

Survivors say while under the influence of the drug, they would be left in a dark room, alone, apart from visits by Hamilton-Byrne or one of the psychiatrists from the group.

Strange person. Is there a published biography around?
