Help Wanted: Pathologist
For more than a year now, I've been working on finding a forensic pathologist who would be willing to give John's death an impartial review.
I had one lined up on the East Coast -- spoke with the gentleman by phone and he was very interested in helping us. However, I don't know if the threat of going against a professional like Vincent DiMaio scared him off or some other conspiracy, but he never returned a phone call again to either me or our attorney.
I then found another one, also on the East. From what I understand, they reviewed the autopsy report and came back with conclusions that had nothing to do with the forensic evidence provided to them! Instead of going by the book, they used information that did not pertain to their area of expertise. Last I heard, we had asked them to do it the way we hired them and stay out of fields of study they were not accredited in. Whether they've now done that, I just don't know.
So if anyone knows of a good forensic pathologist willing to review our information, please let me know. I've scoured the web, contacted several and have only heard from these two in all this time.
The importance of an independent forensic review is to hopefully negate what DiMaio claims in his report. By looking past the FBI's push for suicide (obvious within their report, the FBI decided John committed suicide shortly after the investigation began), we hope to uncover the proof we need to vindicate John.
We all know he was incapable of committing suicide. We all know he had received death threats. We all know he was determined to bring justice to the Kenyan people, even at the expense of his own life. This is our opportunity to prove it.
