LV coroner defies court order, refuses to release Paddock autopsy report

In a stunning development in the Las Vegas shooting conspiracy, Clark County coroner John Fudenberg is refusing to comply with a court order calling for the release of Stephen Paddock's autopsy report.

On Tuesday the coroner was ordered by district court judge Timothy Williams to immediately make public the report.

According to The Daily Caller News Foundation, the Clark County coroner's office stated that the report would not be made public until it was "finalized". Very suspicious wording, since Paddock-- the gunman responsible for the worst mass shooting in modern American history-- was cremated on December 21, 2017.

On January 11, the coroner was fined $32,000 by another judge for refusing to release public records pertaining to the shooting.

This story comes on the heels of another important breakthrough in the Las Vegas shooting case. Earlier this week it was reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal that authorities were pursuing a second person of interest in the massacre.

For months, authorities have been adamant that Paddock had acted alone, even though numerous witnesses have come forward claiming that a second gunman was involved.

Strangely, two of these witnesses-- Danny Contreras and Kymberley Suchomel-- met with untimely deaths shortly after making social media posts of what they had seen during the October 2017 tragedy.

"I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and I say MEN because there was more than one person. There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one," wrote Suchomel, just days before her dead body was discovered.

"Feeling lcky to be alive. cant beleive i got out of concert alive! 2 men chasing me with guns. not evry 1 so lcky," tweeted Contreras after the attack.

A few days later, his body was found inside an abandoned Las Vegas house with multiple gunshot wounds. His killer has not yet been identified.

On October 16, two other survivors of the attack also died under suspicious circumstances. Dennis and Lorraine Carver, of Riverside County, California, died after their vehicle inexplicably crashed into a metal gate and burst into flames just outside of their home near Murrieta. Dennis was the owner of a commercial plumbing company in Las Vegas that had contracts with several resorts, hotels and casinos.

On that same day, October 16, Journal of the Bizarre was the first to report that David Hickey, the union boss of controversial Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, had been the target of an FBI fraud investigation in Michigan and that Hickey's home had been raided by the FBI in 2012.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

The Ticking Tombstone of Landenberg

If you look closely at a map of Pennsylvania, you'll see an anomalous semi-circular border at the extreme southeastern part of the state. This circle, known officially as the "Twelve Mile Circle", serves as the border between the Keystone State and Delaware. Much of the strange circle is surrounded by Chester County, one of the three original Pennsylvania counties created by William Penn in 1682. While there are many historical points of interest in Chester County, few are strange or as steeped in legend as the Ticking Tombstone.

Near the London Tract Meeting House in Landenberg is an old graveyard which contains a tombstone which is said to make eerie ticking noises, much like the ticking of a pocketwatch. Landenberg locals claim that the ticking is the result of two very famous surveyors who arrived in town during the 1760s- Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon.  A young child supposedly swallowed a valuable pocketwatch owned by Mason and later died, and the boy's head…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.

Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
