Today's Blind Items - Three Deaths

What do you do if you know you need to make sure that something makes more money in death than in life? To make sure that the spigots of money are turned on again and in a direction that is helpful. Prior to death, the money was choked off by bad spending habits and millions of dollars being paid for coverups. A few people wanted that to change and the way to do that was to get rid of anyone who knew anything or could say anything. A lifestyle of doing nothing again was within their reach, but only if these three people could be silenced.

How to take care of it? Kill them? Who do you call? Someone that a permanent A list family member had slept with for ages and paid back after all of this was over by doing something very publicly and very out of character for her.

#1 - The first one was quick. It was personal. This person had deprived them of a lifestyle they had grown accustomed. It was because of this person they were cut off. In what would become a pattern, they killed him and made it look like a suicide. No note though and this is a person who most definitely would have written a note.

#2 - The thought they could buy the silence of this person and they did. The problem is that he kept coming back for more and more and it was going to be a problem. They wanted to send a message to the third one with this and they did. In public. Dead. Right there for the world to see.

#3 - This was the toughest. Well known and a good family. He was not an addict. He was not thirsty for publicity. He had a family. He had kids. He also knew too much. Way too much and could bring their dream of a life of leisure disappear. They harassed him and threatened him. They followed him and told him to cooperate. When he refused, they killed him. This time they tried to leave a suicide note but didn't have samples of his handwriting so it was garbled and made no sense. No one believes it was a suicide. They accomplished their mission though and haven't lifted a finger to this day in anything remotely resembling work.

I'll have some of whatever Geeljire is having.

sandybrook said...

I thought I'd see five Clinton responses by now.

hhstarr said...

I will super size it.

sandybrook said...

Or any Kennedy family member.

Tricia13 said...

I thought #3 sounds like Matthew Mellon(who had a close relationship with one of the Kennedys actually)

Poppies115 said...

#1 - Vince Foster.

Geeljire said...

Is #2 Sam Kinison then?

MDAnderson said...

If the Clintons then is the person Huma that did the dirty work??

Neil said...

Could one of the deaths be Seth Rich? It would fit with the Clinton/Foster narrative.

MDAnderson said...

Agree he could be #2

Krab said...

I was thinking Jacksons

Guesser said...

I think @Tricia 13 is right, we can maybe go back wards from there?

LooksLikeCRicci said...

I thought the Kennedys, too....

gadfly said...

Thought Mellon was an addict, though....

Ghost said...

It says number 3 wasn't an addict so it can't be Matthew Mellon.

Bee said...

jacksons

Tricia13 said...

He was sober for quite a while when he died.

Guesser said...

@Ghost,but it is odd that it says he was not an addict. Maybe because it was public that he was?

Cail Corishev said...

We're probably not leaping to name the Clintons because, as bad as they are, they don't fit the description of seeking "a lifestyle of doing nothing." We'd be better off if they did, but they're usually doing something.

This sounds more like an old-money family living off a pile built up by its ancestors, one that has members who burn through money with bad habits, plus crimes to cover up. The Kennedys fit, but so would a lot of others.

DDonna Tarttty said...

"What do you do if you know you need to make sure that something makes more money in death than in life? "

How is this the Clintons? I have less than zero love for the Clintons. But I don't think they fit.

I was actually thinking Michael Jackson, because family members were cut off and there have been a couple weird deaths (haven't there?).

Definitely think this is an entertainer who makes more money dead than alive. Elvis? Kurt Cobain?

Ghost said...

Even if he was sober he was still an addict.

Guesser said...

Actually,it was probably someone killed a while ago, since it says "to this day" they don't work,so that changes things.

Neil said...

DDonna, you're quite possibly right. I thought the sentence was odd, though. "...make sure that someTHING makes more money in death..." That made me think of the Clinton Foundation rather than a person.

joshg g said...

Would the first person have been a spouse or offspring who would have the inheritance?

Guesser said...

The Jackson's make sense for not working,and having the fortune dwindle from bad spending habits and coverups, but who are the other deaths?

Don said...

#1 = Hemingway?
"this is a person who most definitely would have written a note"

Geeljire said...

NICE, France — Why kill yourself with a shotgun one month after you’re voted the best chef in the world?

That’s the mystery that’s taken hold around the famed Restaurant de l’Hôtel de Ville in the picturesque Swiss village of Crissier, where 44-year-old chef Benoît Violier apparently committed suicide at home on Sunday.

He loved hunting and published just last year a book on cooking “feathered game.” (The prestigious daily Le Monde waxed ecstaticover his snow partridge in a wine reduction with tiny Roscoff onions.) The gun that he appears to have used to kill himself reportedly was one of those he used for game.

Swiss police have opened an investigation into the case.

Violier’s restaurant was named the best out of 1,000 restaurants in 48 countries in December by France’s La Liste. Such was the prestige surrounding the award, it was presented at the French foreign ministry.

The chef was in the prime of his life. Handsome, charismatic, said to be calmer in temperament than most world-class cooks, he was married to a beautiful woman, Brigitte, who left her job in cosmetics to work at his side at their highly sought after, three-star restaurant near Lausanne that was normally booked up four months in advance. The couple had a 12-year-old son and an equally photogenic dog, Mac Queen.

Geeljire said...

You don't kill yourself with birdshot

Geeljire said...

I mean, sure, you potentially could
But it's the same reason you don't hang yourself from a doorknob

Geeljire said...

"But Geeljire what if he loaded up a slug and did it? You don't know anything!"
I'm sure the famous game bird chef had a pile of them lying about for home defense?

More Cowbell said...

#1 sounds to be like a journalist -- someone who exposed the family's misdoings and definitely would have written a suicide note. The journalist Michael Hastings comes to mind, but I'm not sure if he fits.

joshg g said...

Hanging from a door knob is like a choke hold, pass out and then after 5 mins, die.

Cail Corishev said...

Vince Foster left a suicide note. By which I mean they found a torn-up suicide note in his briefcase, after not finding one the first time they looked. But officially, he left a note.

riffer73 said...

This one is interesting. No idea other than the standard Clinton/Kennedy/etc. and those don't seem to fit.

More Cowbell said...

I have a feeling this is about the Getty's, but I haven't researched it yet.

brooke wilson said...

If it's the Clinton's, that last one is the Supreme Court Justice that died...Scalia.

Mad Hominem said...

They wanted to send a message to the third one with this and they did. In public. Dead. Right there for the world to see.

One of the conservatives on Twitter, Thomas Wictor, who is the biggest Trump supporter on the web (and who has no love for the Clintons) has said repeatedly that Seth Rich was still alive when they found him, which indicates that this was not a "hit." It was actually a street crime in his opinion.

Cail Corishev said...

Not Scalia; no one ever suggested his death was a suicide.

gauloise said...

No 1 makes me think it is a writer or journalist " a person who most def. would have left a note"

Cail Corishev said...

Seth Rich doesn't fit anyway. He was killed too soon after the leaks to have been coming back for more and more money the way #2 is described. There's also no indication that he ever had millions. #2 sounds like someone who was squeezing them for years.

Alhamdulilla

gadge said...

Geeljire get a fucking therapist

Stupidpervs said...

Really ? That's your best Clinton thinking that Huma lol did it..hmm yeah I always send a prefer assassin lol

Stupidpervs said...

Vague enough to fill in the blanks later..nice

Geeljire said...

Oy gevalt no thank you

Burke said...

This clearly isn't the Clintons, since they're always working at something, loony conspiracy theories aside. They also have only one child, and this specifically refers to a group, so that would rule out any bizarre Chelsea theories as well. This is about some people who inherited money and got cut off by the trustee or the accountant.

Burke said...

I'm thinking the Jacksons were a pretty good guess, and Janet is A list. Not sure about any living A list female Kennedys.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

1. ?
2. Corey Haim
3. Chris Cornell

MeliticusBee said...

Evan Chandler, dad of first MJ accuser blew his brains out in 2009.
No note. Was “ill” prior to death.
http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/evan-chandler-dad-boy-accused-michael-jackson-molestation-commits-suicide-new-jersey-article-1.417751

MIssBliss said...

this doesn't sound political to me. the first one could possibly be a writer or journalist, as someone who would have definitely written a note?

MeliticusBee said...

Wade Robson father found hung in 2002. Says he was an MJ victim.

Cail Corishev said...

MJ seems like a good fit for the first paragraph -- expensive habits and cover-ups. (Even if you think he was innocent, it's a fact that he paid out millions to accusers.) Then the permanent A lister trading for murders would have to be Janet, right? So what has she done "very publicly and very out of character"? Well, she got married to a rich Arab in 2012, three years after MJ died. She also had a kid at age 51, so maybe it could be one of those two things.

If that's supposed to be it, it raises some questions: Would the surviving family members keep paying out millions to preserve his reputation? Seems like they'd just say screw him, let people talk if they want to talk, we're not paying anymore. I guess it might hurt sales of his music and memorabilia, but would it hurt more than the millions they'd save? Also, I assume Janet has her own money, at least more than the rest of them do. Why would she be the one to pay the price for shutting up the problematic three, when she's the one who would benefit least?

HardyHarHar said...

Could #1 - "No note though and this is a person who most definitely would have written a note." - be Bourdain? Being the great narrator he was one would think he'd have left a note.

Liv said...

#1 Clarence Hemingway (Ernest's father)
#2 Ernest Hemingway (no note)
#3 Leicester Hemingway (E's younger brother)

Off to research Clarence and what ties he may have had.

Maggie T said...

I thought of Chris too or someone like him.

T. W. said...

@Cail Corishev

Cheaper for MJ's family to pay off credible victims, especially when they have evidence.

T. W. said...

@Geeljire

Are you okay? I am genuinely concerned.

Blink twice if you are being held against your will...

Thorne said...

Has the answer to any of these blinds EVER been the Clinton Foundation? JFC some of you have one-track minds.

rosie riveter said...

Omg haha

Poor Mick said...

If I ever win the lottery, one of my minor goals will be to get Geeljire into a Met Gala as my guest and just let him off the leash.

Dreamnose said...

1. Chris Cornell- would have written a note.
2. Chester Bennington
3.?

rosie riveter said...

Geeljire is on fire today and responsible for the 3 times I've laughed

gauloise said...

It sounds like trust fund people or aristocrats, people who just want to travel and do drugs.

Say what you want about the jacksons, but they are too much of fame whores to just want a life of leisure. They are always doing some kind of music stuff. Even Jermaine's kids have that boy band.

gauloise said...

Mark Salling suicide?

Could the lifestyle be the pedo lifestyle, and making money from pedo stuff.

Geeljire said...

Could always be some bodies that DEN piled up

mercyprosperity said...

"They accomplished their mission, and haven't lifted a finger in anything resembling work."

??

Easy Peasey said...

I think the key to getting this one is figuring out the ‘permanent A list family member’ who was sleeping with someone who would help off some pesky victims and also ‘did something out of character’

I feel strongly that that all refers to Janet Jackson, but nothing she’s done has really been clearly ‘very out of character’ since she’s been pretty private in her life.

I am really struggling to think of a situation where more money comes after death other than a celebrity estate a la Elvis or MJ. And it also seems clear that this is directed at improving the reputation of an individual or entity in order to reinstate the flow of cash.

This is a deeply confusing blind, on the surface it seems like MJ but the details don’t fit, and not in the usual ‘Enty plausible deniability’ way.

Maris MM said...

Holy crap this is some fucked up shit! And I'm pretty sure we will never see this blind revealed ''/

MDAnderson said...

Are you being a jerk or just being a jerk. Don’t see you coming up with anything.

Easy Peasey said...

Wild guess, but could this be Whitney Houston’s family/estate and BobbyK and her shady dude be part of this.

Permanent A list family member could be Dionne Warwick?

Cail Corishev said...

Check out how this works, because it's a common pattern: no one mentions the Clintons, until someone says she can't believe no one's mentioned the Clintons yet. Then a few people explore that possibility, most rejecting it because they don't fit. Then someone comes along to say, "Sheesh, you people are obsessed with the Clintons!"

Yeah.

PotPourri said...

"very publicly and very out of character"?

Janet Jackson showing her Tits on National TV at the Super Bowl...that's about as public as you can get since she is so private..

I thought of Michael too.

mercyprosperity said...

PotPourri said...

Whitney Houston was worth more dead than alive, as we see now. Her poor daughter died tragically too. That leaves Bobby Brown, Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick, but they are all low-key now. Bobby Brown is supposedly a changed man.

S D said...

At first I thought it might be Michael Jackson, but the blinds say suicide & that was not said to be the cause of Michael's death.

ancoranonhocapito said...

So, a group of people (one of which is an A lister), probably relatives, was enjoying a free flow of money, until the money started to be choked off by "bad spending habits and coverups".
Then the source of money died, and they went back to a life of ease.
Then #1 got in the way and cut the flow of money. Sounds like a lawyer or a journalist/writer who exposed them.
The first 3 clues could fit the Jackson's, but who was this #1 who got in the way?

Nawlins Jim said...

Definitely sounds to me like MJ and the Jackson family, with Janet the perm A lister, her Qatari husband as the Macher who took care of the family’s business, and Janet’s child with him (her first at the age of 51) as the out of character thank you to her benefactor. Not sure who 1-3 are though ...

Sara, Making It Work said...

But how would the tit flash be a way to pay back the killer?

That's what it's supposed to be.

Maybe marrying somebody, having a kid/ giving up parental rights, giving someone an important job or a really big gift, giving an exclusive interview (if they were normally quiet)...

Melody Clark said...

The Benza crowd is really pumping the anti-Clinton stuff lately. It's ridiculous - and nothing more than pro Trump propaganda.

travis said...

I thought maybe Robert Maxwell, who blew his fortune at the end of his life. His death looked like suicide. However, he definitely would have written a note, if he had done so.

Ghislaine Maxwell as the A list family member and Jeffrey Epstein as the person she slept with for years and turned to for help.

His two sons who took over his business interests both filed for bankruptcy, but both appear to be wealthy nevertheless.

But I've got nothing on two of the deaths. So maybe not.

Datagirl27 said...

Chris Cornell

Jennacheryl said...

If the Kennedy's would John Jr's plane crash be the public death?

@melody Clark... the Clinton's have a path of destruction behind them. Benza not required.

Bill Beard said...

Michael Jackson/Prince?

Yuk Nassty said...

3. Cobain?

I've never seen commentators give up on a blind quite like this. Can we get another clue?

Poppymann said...

tUPAC

XXXtentacion

Unknown said...

Can't make Bronfman's fit but there are similarities. Dad cutting off money b/c of bad spending habits. Reporter who broke story of their bad behavior one of the hits?

Royals too. Andrew payments to cover up his pedo activities? I know some of their allowance has been cut off at various times.

Also want to throw out the possibility that (friggin enty grammar!) this sentence can be read two ways:

"Someone...paid back after all of this was over by doing something very publicly and very out of character for her."

"Someone...paid back after all of this was over by doing something for her that was very public and very out of character."

First one implies that the payor, a woman, did something publicly and out of character. Second implies that the payee, a woman, received something that was out of character for the people making the payment.

Out of class marriage proposal? Unqualified job offer?

I dunno. Just some thoughts I hadn't seen mentioned.

mercyprosperity said...

Poorly written. Vague references to 'they', which could be anything from a corporation to a church to a dynasty.
Can't you even take the time to write properly, and in a way that makes solution a possibility?

Unknown said...

Could #3 be referring to Peter Lopez, Esq.?
Janet... she did get married and have a child

Principessa Marina said...

Has to be the Jacksons. Who makes a mountain of money after he's dead? Michael Jackson. Don't see how the Clintons or any politician fit this.

travis said...

Jackson died in 2009; Lopez in 2010. That means #2 had to die some time in between. So Corey Haim?

chillip said...

The way this is worded leads me to think this is booze or maybe water resource related (spigot, flow in a direction, choked off). Maybe an older, Los Angeles blind?

blakstone said...

Definitely Michael Jackson. #1 is Evan Chandler (suicide Nov 2009), # 2 is Bruce Ayers (overdose on public sidewalk Dec 2009) and #3 is Peter Lopez (suicide Apr 2010). The family member is Janet Jackson, with the suggestion that her marriage Wissam Al Mana was the payback to him.

Lots of hooey IMHO, and seems to be taken whole cloth from this post: http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/06/who-is-killing-michaels-friends.html
