A comment by Soj just reminded me of a conspiracy theory that many believe to be true. And remember, just because it is a conspiracy theory does not mean you need to wear a tinfoil hat. For years people who claimed the CIA and DoD had conducted biological experiments on human test subjects and on cities were called conspiracy kooks. Later the CIA and the military admitted to such tests.
Danny Casolaro worked as a freelance journalist before he was found dead in a Martinsburg, W.Va. motel room.
His death has been the subject of numerous books, a play, countless newspaper and magazine articles and thousands of web pages. Unless you've ever had an interest in conspiracy theories, you've probably never heard of him.
I personally believe he was on to something big and was murdered.
Casolaro tied many of the darker aspects of the 1980s and 1990s together. Call it government as criminal enterprise (I can't remember who coined the term first). But Casolaro traced many different "tentacles" back to a group of high leading federal and business leaders. He called it "The Octopus."
Carnicky ends his story by stating ...
So it's just the conspiracy fringe that believes this, right? Well, not really. Since it was a journalist, a number of legitimate news organizations looked into his death and came to the conclusion that he was on to something and he was murdered. The Village Voice even named who they concluded committed the killing, a shady mercenary type who was never charged so I won't name here (no reason to get BooMan Tribune sued in the first month).

The Maxwells: Scandal, conspiracy and more than a few days in court | The Times of Israel |
Robert Maxwell’s life read like a novel, having variously been suspected of working for the British, Israeli and Soviet secret services. The Czechoslovakian-born businessman was born to Jewish parents who would be killed by the Nazis, and came to Britain penniless at the age of 16.
He changed his name from Jan Ludvík Hyman Binyamin Hoch and fought for the British Army during World War II, going on to set up a publishing business after the end of hostilities.
From there, he built up one of the biggest media and publishing groups in the world.
At its peak in the 1980s, he employed 16,000 people in a raft of companies including Britain’s Mirror Group Newspapers, US publishers Macmillan, and the Berlitz language schools.
He was chairman of the Oxford United football club and a member of parliament from 1964 to 1974, representing the left-wing Labour party.
Maxwell was buried on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives in the presence of numerous Israeli intelligence figures, and eulogized by then prime minister Yitzhak Shamir. Amid reports of his links to Britain’s MI6 intelligence, the KGB and Mossad, Shamir declared that Maxwell “has done more for Israel than can today be said.”
