(originally from here http://www.uniondemocrat.com/News/Local ... er-suicide )
I am utterly fucking sick to my stomach about finding this out. 1) Because what happened is just beyond horrific and 2) Because after years of removing myself from any connection to online conspiracy/truth/etc
stuff(other than RI of course) I decided to "like" The Big Bamboozle page and even commented on this guys posts just a few days ago. Good Christ. Literally, like the day before this guy does this horrendous
shit his posts were showing up in my feed. I even last week listened to an hour long interview with him given his focus was on the Saudi angle of 9/11, which had been my main truther focus. Heck I spent a half hour browsing his web page and considered ordering his book.

Philip Marshall, 54, a career airline pilot who claimed to have once served as a contract pilot for the CIA and DEA during the Iran-Contra affair, shot and killed his two teenage children, and the family dog, then killed himself. The apparent murder-suicide was discovered at the family home in an upscale gated golfing community in Murphys, California.
According to local news reports, teen friends of Alex Marshall, 17 (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), and Macaila Marshall (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), 14, noticed the siblings had not been active on social media since Thursday and went by the house on Saturday to check on them.
The friends told police that when they arrived, they found Phillip Marshall, 54, "lying in a pool of blood inside the home," his 9mm Glock nearby.
Deputies believe the children were shot while sleeping on a couch. The dog was found in a bedroom. His estranged wife Sean Marshall, the children's mother, was out of the country at the time.
Philip Marshall has been identified as a former pilot for Eastern and United airlines. He self-published a number of books, including at least two about his 9/11 conspiracy theories: "The Big Bamboozle" (February 9, 2012) and "False Flag 911: How Bush, Cheney and the Saudis Created the Post-911 World" (July 29, 2008).
In his books, he claims to have served as a contract pilot for the US government during the Iran-Contra affair, flying shipments to and from Nicaragua. He appeared on "outsider truth" shows like Coast to Coast to promote his ideas.
From his author bio on Createspace.com, Amazon.com's self-publishing service:
Philip Marshall, a veteran airline captain and former government "special activities" contract pilot, has authored three books on Top Secret America, a group presently conducting business as the United States Intelligence Community. Beginning with his role in the 1980s as a Learjet captain first as part of a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sting on Pablo Escobar, and later in the covert arming of the Nicaraguan Contras, Marshall has studied and written 30-years worth of covert government special activities and the revolving door of Wall Street tricksters, media moguls, and their well funded politicians.
I am unable to confirm the veracity of the claims in his self-authored bio at this time.
A Facebook page for "The Big Bamboozle" showed posts as recent as January 31 with titles like, "WHAT IS THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY HIDING?," "THE ARAB WORLD KNOWS THE RAID WAS A HOAX," and posts about the Bin Laden assassination having been faked.
"PICTURES PAINT A THOUSAND WORDS," read one such Facebook post from Marshall about photographs of the assassinated Al Qaeda leader. "Since bin Laden died in 2001, these would be "alleged" photos of bin Laden. Give us a break."
He once also pitched those theories to a television news journalist with whom this blogger is acquainted.
A young friend of the two slain teens with whom this blogger is personally acquainted described them as "sweet, funny, lively, good kids."
Sorry, Im just super weirded out by all this.
9/11 "truth" was dead long before this guy, but yeah. Forgetting all this, my god...two kids and a dog I probably see a hundred times over in just my little suburban area snuffed out by this
guy...I cant wrap my head around this.
The shootings are believed to have occurred between Thursday and Saturday afternoon. No neighbors heard gunshots, Freels said.
Good God...this means that his last facebook entry happened either after or right before this horror show. *feeling really ill*
