Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Prevezon Case Was Settled the Day Before Peter Smith Died of Helium Suicide.

2 weeks ago, BusinessInsider tried to hock a piece on a GOP researcher who hired a team of people, to trawl internet forums for Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. BusinessInsider claimed it was ‘proof’ that Russians were colluding with the GOP.  Reddit’s r/Politics and r/Worldnews gobbled it up heartily. (You should have seen those comments!)

I picked up on this because well, I like to keep track of Liberal delusion (‘lest it may overwhelm the folks who only read the news passively).  The images above are screenshots of said suspect + several things that I thought should have been included.

What I found amusing about BI’s article was the focus on internet forums. It could have easily been a video gaming forum, or a mobile app forum, we wouldn’t have known because BI relies heavily on “anonymous” sources for clickbait revenue.

Have they ever heard of a thing called roleplay? It’s where people pretend to be hackers on the internet to impress their friends.

Well something new has popped up and it’s about Peter Smith. Shortly after discovering BI’s article, I looked around r/Worldnews and r/Politics to see what people had to say. People on those subreddits casually mentioned that he had passed away. As if it was a peaceful death. As if it hadn’t been a big deal.

Turns out, he died of suicide.  Helium suffocation?

1

In mid-May, in a room at a Rochester hotel used almost exclusively by Mayo Clinic patients and relatives, Peter W. Smith, 81, left a carefully prepared file of documents, including a statement police called a suicide note in which he said he was in ill health and a life insurance policy was expiring.

However, the Chicago Tribune obtained a Minnesota state death record filed in Olmsted County saying Smith committed suicide in a hotel near the Mayo Clinic at 1:17 p.m. on Sunday, May 14. He was found with a bag over his head with a source of helium attached. A medical examiner’s report gives the same account, without specifying the time, and a report from Rochester police further details his suicide.

In the note recovered by police, Smith apologized to authorities and said that “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” was involved in his death. He wrote that he was taking his own life because of a “RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017” and timing related “TO LIFE INSURANCE OF $5 MILLION EXPIRING.”

He had been staying at the hotel for several days and had extended his stay at least once but was expected to check out on the day his body was found. “Tomorrow is my last day,” Smith told a hotel worker on May 13 while he worked on a computer in the business center, printing documents, according to the police reports.

Smith’s death occurred at the Aspen Suites in Rochester, records show. They list the cause of death as “asphyxiation due to displacement of oxygen in confined space with helium.”

6

Police found a receipt from a local Walmart time-stamped from the previous day, May 13 at 12:53 p.m. The receipt was for the purchase of “Helium Jumbo” and other items. Police also noted that the two helium tanks in the room were draped with vinyl-covered exercise ankle or wrist weights. The report did not offer an explanation for the weights. Police said that because they did not suspect foul play, they had not viewed any security video from the Walmart store to confirm that Smith bought the tanks himself.

Smith’s remains were cremated in Minnesota.

Now Chicago Tribune says that Peter Smith died on May 14.  The Walmart receipts were dated May 13.   If we look at the Prevezon case, guess which date it was settled. May 12, 2017.   This is about 3 weeks before Rob Goldstone contacted Donald Trump Jr.
