JIM KEITH 1949-1999
Writer, Investigator Dead
HAS THE OCTOPUS STRUCK AGAIN?
September 10, 1999
Dear Rumor Mill News Readers,
Several days ago I sent out an article that had been forwarded to me by Nitro
News. I was an article written by Jim Keith. While I never met Jim, I did
know of him and had used one of his books as a resource when I was writing my
book, Diana, Queen of Heaven.
Two days after I sent out the link to Nitro News and Jim's article, (you
will find the original article at the end of this post), I received the
following note stating that Jim Keith was dead:
Subj: SAD NEWS
Date: 9/8/99 2:36:12 PM Atlantic Daylight Time
From: MRUFO@webtv.net (Tim Beckley)
I just received word in a telephone conversation with Illuminet
Publisher Ron Bonds that conspiracy writer Jim Keith passed away last
night. [RMNEWS: AND NOW RON BONDS IS ALSO DEAD!]
From the information I have been given he was taken to the hospital
after breaking his leg. An operation to set the leg was postponed due to
kidney problems and somewhere along the line a blood clot was involved
in his passing. More information will no doubt be forthcoming.
TODAY, RUMOR MILL NEWS RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION. ONE OF THE THINGS
INCLUDED IS A STATEMENT WHICH SAYS THAT RUMOR HAS IT THAT JIM MAY HAVE BEEN
KILLED BECAUSE HE REVEALED THE SOURCE OF HIS INFORMATION.
RMNews RECEIVED A TELEPHONE CALL FROM A MAN WHO SEEMS TO HAVE HAD A
BACKGROUND IN THE WORLD OF BLACK OPS. HE STATED THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
GETS INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS KILLED IS NOT THE INFORMATION THEY REVEAL, BUT
THE FACT THAT THEY REVEAL THE NAMES OF THEIR SOURCES, AND IN THE PROCESS,
THEY ENDANGER THE LIVES OF MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE TRYING TO EXPOSE AND STOP
THE PLANS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER.
RMNews HAS NO IDEA WHAT CAUSED JIM KEITH'S DEATH. HOWEVER, THE ABOVE
DESCRIPTION OF HIS DEATH, DOES MAKE ONE WONDER. THE TIMING OF HIS DEATH,
COMING IMMEDIATELY AFTER NITRO NEWS PUBLISHED HIS ARTICLE ON PRINCESS DIANA,
ALSO MAKES HIS DEATH EXTREMELY QUESTIONABLE.
Here is a link to some of his books: HREF="http://www.ufomind.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?key=Jim+Keith&file=%2Fpara%2Fc
From: "Thomas, Kenneth F." <email@example.com>
Thank you for the kind words about Jim. He was a dear friend of mine and an
important person to the world. The loss is immeasurable. He was not just the
co-author of The Octopus, but a dharma combatant who demonstrated time and
again that the world is far more multi-dimenisonal, far more interesting,
than the pablum that usually passes for news, information and normal
discourse. Unfortunately, it is also far more dangerous.
Rumor has it that Jim may have been killed because he mentioned the name of
the physician who declared Diana was pregnant at the time of her death. I
have long noted the connections between Diana's death and the Octopus. Diana
was the subject of Jim's last column for Nitro News, which has been linked
at Steamshovel's "Link Tank" for the past couple of weeks. As you know,
Nitro News has not been accessible since Jim's death, although I reached it
just before receiving word of his passing.
This rumor may be nonsense. Casolaro may have committed suicide. It is the
way of the Octopus. It exists but it doesn't exist. These are blood clots or
suicides or non-suspicious homicides or real accidents. They just happen to
cluster coincidentally around a certain set of facts or a certain perception
of an organized conspiracy.
And if Jim Keith did not die as a result of a conspiracy, then I'm sure he
would want us to make it look that way!
I hope you will remember Jim for his good humor and for his fearlessness. He
wrote what he knew and he let the chips fall where they might. He lived on
the edge, where I usually tried to catch up with him. I hope he taught me
enough about the place to keep up the work to which we were both committed.
If word comes of public services for him, I will pass it on. I have
tentative plans to go to Reno and investigate what happened while the trails
are still fresh. This will take money, though, and as with Jim and Danny
Casolaro both, that's always in short supply, despite the romanticized view
many people have of well-paid, world traveling writers and researchers. I
urge anyone with information to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll do whatever research work we can from our desks and get as much field
work done as possible. I have sent inquiries to Burning Man and know one
source who took a great deal of video there.
Also, several of Jim's friends have expressed an interest in putting
together a memorial volume of essays with proceeds going to his daughters.
As these things develop, I will keep the list up to speed.
Thank you again. Remember Jim!
