Marilyn Monroe deserves to have her death certificate changed!

I am a private investigator conducting an investigation into the true facts surrounding the death of Marilyn Monroe. My objective is to petition the correction of Marilyn's death certificate and requesting that the Attorney General opened a criminal investigation surrounding her death. There was really never an investigation  I have always believed Marilyn Monroe was murdered along with most of the people in this world. If you look at all of the stories, books, testimonies, and even evidence then there is no reason that Marilyn Monroe’s death certificate should not be changed from probable suicide to murder. If not that, then at least accidental death. I feel that there should be a correction on Marilyn's death certificate and I am requesting that the Attorney General open the criminal investigation surrounding her death. There are two people alive who have never asked to give a statement for an investigation but were present when Marilyn Monroe took her last breath, and that is LAPD Sgt. Marvin D. Iannone who was later promoted to Chief of the Beverly Hills Police Department. And, Pat Newcomb. After the funeral, Pat Newcomb flew to the Kennedy compound at Hyannisport, Massachusetts. After that, Newcomb left the country and remained away for six months. During this period from August 1962 to February 1963, she visited Germany, France, Italy, Holland, Denmark, and Switzerland. When she returned to this country she was put on the"government payroll as an information specialist (motion pictures) for the U.S. Information Agency, 1776 Penn. Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. Don’t you think this is a little interesting? I do! Time is running out since Ms. Pat Newcomb is 88 years old and Mr. Iannone is 83 years old. Please help by making things right. It’s time for Marilyn Monroe to have her death cleared once and for all. And, for those who took part in her death to be criminally responsible for aiding and abetting in the death of Marilyn Monroe.is they are not alive.   Marvin Iannone dismissed the other officers from the scene the day Marilyn Monroe was found dead. Iannone was seen by several witnesses talking to Peter Lawford and assisting Lawford while cleaning up the cottage where the actual death took place. Iannone had been known to take care of Bobby Kennedy whenever Bobby came into town. How can we allow a man who pledged to protect and serve get away with actually taking part in a possible murder and/or more? The one thing that has never changed in over 53 years is the people involved, the time frame of events and the real manner of death. Marilyn deserves this change.

My sister with MS was brutally attacked & now her attacker is getting a lenient plea deal.

In March of this year, my sister, Lori Weirzbicki, was brutally attacked and strangled in her home.  Lori is disabled with multiple sclerosis and the unprovoked attack was committed by Russell Molleur, a recently evicted neighbor of my sister’s affordable housing complex in Milford, CT.  Her attacker had previous arrests for threatening another neighbor with a knife and even had pending charges against him for unlawfully restraining a mentally handicapped man, forcing him to watch pornography and exposing himself to the mentally handicapped man.  During my sister’s attack, Russell Molleur strangled my sister to the point of unconsciousness repeatedly and everytime she came to, he would punch her full force in the face.  He dragged her around her apartment, slamming her head into her coffee table and walls, and then forced her to undress and shower in an attempt to clean off some of the large amount of blood that was lost.  Lori luckily survived but now the Connecticut State Attorney’s Office in Milford (led by Margaret E Kelley and her assistant Chuck Stango) have offered her attacker a plea deal. They have reduced the assault charge, dropped three other charges entirely, and chosen not to charge him with assault of a disabled person (a class B felony with a mandatory minimum of five years jail time), despite my sister’s multiple sclerosis. Judge Peter Brown will only sentence her attacker to no more than two years jail MAXIMUM on January 22nd, and may even release him.  This is a miscarriage of justice and I can not sit by idly while my sister, who has little means, is left voiceless and without justice.  Please show your support by signing this petition and letting our Connecticut Judicial System know that we will not be lenient with those who abuse women and the disabled.  I’m begging you for your help in my sister’s time of need.  Don’t let her be traumatized for a second time by a faulty justice system.  This plea deal needs to be thrown out or have the appropriate charges added.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Petition to Porsha Douglas

DUI VICTIMS PENALTIES OVER THE STATE LAW

Hello everyone my name is Porsha Douglas and I am one of the 12 children of Bobby Douglas. Bobby Douglas left behind a big loving family; Wife, kids, sisters, grandchildren, and a great grandchild. My father was killed by a drunk driver May 4, 2019 , by Elvin Herman Portillo. Mr. Portillo was driving under the influence when the accident occured. Mr. Portillo tried fleeing from the scene while my father suffered in a burning vehicle , where he spent his final moments. The alcohol level of Mr. Portillo was 1.83 at the time of the testing , which was approximately 2-3 hours after he was arrested. 1.83. Mr.Portillo had an previous DUI back in 2012 and made bond and was deported back to Mexico. He came back to Tennessee between 2013-2019. He need to be held accountable for his actions. Although he is being charged with vehicular homicide due to his high level of intoxication it should be aggravated vehicular homicide. Law Of Tennessee Drinking And DrivingDrinking and driving , also known as  " driving under the influence" (DUI), is illegal in Tennessee. The DUI laws in Tennessee have many components including blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits for adults and minors, criminal sentences with jail time and fines, driver's license revocations, and implied consent to alcohol testing for ALL drivers.Tennessee has a blood alcohol level at which the state presumes the driver is drunk. This is called a "per se" BAC  and is set at .08 in Tennessee. In addition having  an extreme high BAC, in Tennessee of .02 or above, can result in enhanced penalties.  For children and adults under the age of 21 years old in Tennessee, the state has a " ZERO TOLERANCE" policy. If a person under 21 has a BAC of .02 while driving, even if not drunk, the person can be found to have commited a DUI. If a youth (16-20) is found guilty of impaired driving,their license will be revoked for one year, they'll recieve a $250 fine, and the court can impose community service.Also they could face jail time due to the offense occured. First time offense its mandatory 48 hours in jail, IF your BAC level is .02 or higher, and possibly a fine. Or even 11 months and 29 days. Second offense your could recieve 45 days of jail time time and a mandatory fine. License could be revoked and restricitions could apply as in ; going to and from work ; court- ordered programs; and an monitor in your car. Third DUI offense carries a minimum of 120 days in jail (maximum under one year), $1,100-$10,000 in mandatory fines, and license revocationfor 6-10 years with no possibility of getting a restricted license even for necessities like work. Fourth and subsequent DUIs are felonies that will get you a minimum of 365 days in jail and a $3,000-$15,000 mandatory fine, and 8 year license revocation with no restricted license available. Prayers To Change The Law Of Tennessee With Level Over State ApprovalAlthough the law states that the alcohol level is .20 that is a pretty high high amount of being intoxicated. What if the level is over .20?  Do the opponent recieve the same consequences as an .20 personel? Should they recieve up to 4 different chances?  We as human beings should be held accountable for our own actions and being intoxicated could cause and/or bring harm to an innocent persons. First offense should be more than a 48 hour hold time, more like 11 months and 29 days timed served along with fees to pay and a mandatory DUI class. Second offense  2years served and 11months and 29 days probation along with DUI classes with $10,000 fine with revoked license. Third and subsequent DUI felony 2 years served along with talking with youth and adults about DUI and the consequences, revoked license, 11 months and 29days probation after time served , $10,000 fine. Fourth offense violation of probation (depending on the timing) , $20,000 fine,  12 years license revocation with no restricted license available, 5 years jail time, mandatory DUI classes weekly up to one year. Offense If Persons Harmed/ Death MANDATORY CHARGED WITH AGGRAVATED VEHICULAR HOMICIDE. JUSTICE FOR ALL

Exonerate Kenneth Clair: DNA Evidence Points to Someone Else.

On November 15, 1984, 5-year-old Jerrod Hessling witnessed the beating, rape, and stabbing death of his babysitter. When asked to describe the killer, he said, without hesitation, that it was a white male. Another child present during the murder saw a white man’s tattooed arm reach inside the house to open a sliding glass door. Yet somehow, the lawyers in the case determined that Kenneth Clair, a dark-skinned African-American homeless man who had been squatting next door, was the killer. When Jerrod saw him on the witness stand and insisted they had the wrong man, the prosecution chalked it up to youth and trauma and pursued the death penalty for Kenneth Clair. To this day, 31 years later, Mr. Clair sits on San Quentin’s death row, awaiting his execution date. [UPDATE: I was recently made aware that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals secretly overturned Mr. Clair’s death sentence and changed it to life in prison without parole. This is mixed news -- his life is spared, but he no longer has the right to an attorney under habeas corpus laws, and he has not been granted a retrial. That means the exonerating DNA evidence will NOT be seen in court. We now have to focus our energy on asking Governor Jerry Brown and California State Attorney General Kamala Harris to investigate the case and exonerate Kenneth Clair for this crime he did not commit. It is Mr. Clair’s only remaining chance for justice. ] But that’s not the biggest bombshell in this case -- in 2008, forensic testing revealed that DNA found on the murder victim did not match Clair’s. DNA taken from a glove found at the scene also did not match. It matches another individual, but the Orange County District Attorney insists that “confidentiality is required” concerning this evidence, and for 7 years now, the identity of the person whose DNA does match the swab has remained a secret. In the interest of justice, we must call on the Orange County DA and California state lawmakers to demand that the DNA evidence be turned over to Kenneth Clair’s defense. Since his conviction, Clair has struggled with ineffective counsel. He wanted his lawyers to work at investigating the crime, rather than simply trying to free him from death row, but they never did. His plea for substitute counsel even made it to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012, and he did eventually receive a switch of counsel. Finally, he is being represented by people who are dedicated to his exoneration. But their hands are tied without this crucial DNA evidence, and more of Clair’s precious life is wasting away in prison as they fight to obtain it. Please sign my petition: Obviously the Orange County District Attorneys office, with their current district attorney Tony Rackauckas will continue withholding exculpatory evidence from the defense. The only alternative is to both Mr. Rackauckas out of office. So our goal now is to fight this battle both by rallies and at the voting box. If you cannot vote, we still need your donations and also your time if you can volunteer. OUR MAIN MESSAGE IS THAT THE DNA IS NOT KENNETH CLAIR'S. WE DO NOT CARE IF THE DA'S OFFICE CONTINUES TO WITHHOLD THE RESULTS ANY MORE........  NOW OUR MISSION IS TO EXONERATE KENNETH CLAIR. "IF THE DNA SAYS NO .........YOU HAVE TO EXONERATE AND LET KENNETH CLAIR GO......."
