Deceased, Missing & Imprisoned US Whistleblowers

March 2011, Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer, whistleblower of mass corruption in Child Protective Services and the Courts, reported to have been murdered by her husband who then killed himself. Locals and those who knew the Schaefers are not buying the story. According to

“Specifically in Georgia, former Senator Nancy Schaefer had found during the last few years that:- in Georgia housed children in a foster home with a known pedophile who molested the children.- in Habersham County failed to remove six children from a home where they are being abused and tortured.- in Georgia turned two girls over to a California father who had a pornographic video business.

A report that Nancy Schaefer produced on these remarkable cases can be found here:

Nancy Schaefer was also interviewed extensively by talk show host Alex Jones about corruption in Child Protection Services nationally. A multi-part series of her interview and an Eagle Forum presentation can be found on You Tube here:



Nov 30, 2011 Whistleblowing Loan Process Servicer for Countrywide Mortgage and Bank of America Turns Up Dead

Tracy Lawrence, a whistleblower who robo-signed tens of thousands of foreclosure documents and then aided the state of Nevada in their eventual indictments over the scheme, turned up dead yesterday:

NBC station KSNV of Las Vegas reported that the woman, Tracy Lawrence, 43, was scheduled to be sentenced Monday morning after she pleaded guilty this month to notarizing the signature of an individual not in her presence. She failed to show up for her hearing, and police found her body at her home later in the day.

It could not immediately be determined whether Lawrence, who faced up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000, died of susicide or of natural causes, KSNV reported. Detectives said they had ruled out homicide.

Lawrence came forward earlier this month and blew the whistle on the operation, in which title officers Gary Trafford, 49, of Irvine, Calif., and Geraldine Sheppard, 62, of Santa Ana, Calif. — who worked for a Florida processing company used by most major banks to process repossessions — allegedly forged signatures on tens of thousands of default notices from 2005 to 2008.


July 2011, News of the World reporter, Sean Hoare, reported to have committed suicide. Hoare blew the whistle on Rupert Murdock’s new organization hacking the phones of prominent politicians and citizens.

 Sean Hoare, the first person to link former News of the World editor Andy Coulson to Britain's phone hacking scandal, was found dead Monday. Police say his death is not considered suspicious.

“Sean Hoare, the first person to link former News of the World editor Andy Coulson to Britain’s phone hacking scandal, was found dead Monday. Police say his death is not considered suspicious. (News International/ Associated Press)” Sean Hoare was found dead in his home in July of 2011. He blew the whistle on phone hacking by News of the World, which is owned by US’s Rupert Murdock. Murdock also owns publications in the US, such as the Wall Street Journal.  Shortly after purchasing the WSJ, Mudoch closed down the investigative branch in Boston. This branch was responsible for the January 2007 ARTICLE about Kelman, Hardin and others involved; and how they were able to mass market a scientific fraud into policy over the mold issue for the purpose of misleading the courts.  The WSJ writer became interested in the subject after being sent a paper that Kramer had written in 2006, “ACOEM Exposed, A Case Study in Sham Peer Review & Conflicts of Interest”.

October 2011, “BP Oil Spill Whistleblowers And Experts Continue To Mysteriously Die” Now ten.

According to the Intel Hub, “In the last year and a half at least 10 experts, whistleblowers and BP connected individuals have died under mysterious circumstances.

This information was widely reported in an April 10th, 2011 video which at the time listed 9 deaths and 3 imprisonments, disappearances, or attempted assassinations.Now, another BP oil spill connected individual has mysteriously died, moving the number of oil spill connected deaths to at least 10.

George Thomas Wainwright, a BP ROV pilot was supposedly killed in a freak shark attack in Australia.

The avid outdoorsman and Texas A&M graduate was a marine systems engineer involved with capping the Macondo well after last year’s BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Wainwright – whose body was recovered by the college friends he was boating with – is the third man killed by a great white in the state in two months.

While this is obviously a very sad story, it may have a more sinister meaning considering the fact that at least 9 other BP and oil spill related whistleblowers or experts have died since the oil spill that saw a horrendous amount of openly toxic dispersant sprayed throughout the gulf.

Consider this breakdown from Real Coastal Warriors:

No one has heard or spoken with him since. Watch this news report covering his investigation before his disappearance:

Roger Grooters

October 6, 2010 – Roger Grooters, age 66, was hit by a truck as he passed through Panama City, Florida. Mr. Grooters had been knocked down and killed close to the end of a 3,200-mile trans-America charity ride to raise awareness about the Gulf Coast oil disaster. He began his cross-country bike ride in Oceanside, California, on September 10th. Grooters’s family and friends will cycle the final stretch of the journey from the Pacific to the Atlantic in his honour, raising cash to support Gulf Coast families.

Senator Ted Stevens

August 9, 2010 – Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska, 86, the longest-serving Republican senator in history, was among nine people on board when the 1957 DeHavilland DHC-3 Otter, crashed into a brush- and rock-covered mountainside Monday afternoon about 17 miles north of the southwest Alaska fishing town of Dillingham, federal officials said. Stevens was the recipient of a whistleblower’s communication relative to the BP Oil Disaster blow-out preventer, and a conspiracy of secrecy to hide the facts from the public.

“You and your fellow Committee members may wish to require BP to explain what action was ultimately instituted to cease the practice of falsifying BOP tests at BP Prudhoe drilling rigs. It was a cost saving but dangerous practice, again endangering the BP workforce, until I exposed it to Senator Ted Stevens, the EPA, and the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.” The cause of the crash is still an OPEN investigation by the NTSB (

Matthew Simmons

August 13, 2010 – Matthew Simmons, age 67 – Simmons’ body was found Sunday night in his hot tub, investigators said. An autopsy by the state medical examiner’s office concluded Monday that he died from accidental drowning with heart disease as a contributing factor – “It was painful as can be” to be only insider willing to speak out against the “officials” during the BP Oil Disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

Scientist Joseph Morrissey

April 6, 2010 – Scientist Joseph Morrissey, age 46 – cell biologist and college professor, a near-native Floridian who chose to return to South Florida after studying at elite universities – was fatally shot during what police say was a home invasion robbery.

And now, after the untimely death of George Thomas Wainwright we can add another to this eerie list: (First part of deaths lists courtesy of Real Coastal Warriors.)

Marine Systems Engineer George Thomas Wainwright

October 22nd/23rd 2011 – BP ROV pilot George Wainwright was killed in apparent freak shark attack off the cost of Australia where some believe he was hiding out in fear of his life.(unconfirmed)

These mysterious deaths absolutely must be investigated but without widespread media coverage they will most likely remain largely unknown. The sad fact is most journalists may actually fear reprisal if they even bring up these deaths.”

  1. “We are just small pawns in the big scheme of things”. We the People, all 99% are manipulated pawns of the corporate-state Fascist scheme. This is clearly evidenced when you are punitively declared an adversary of a court for being an advocate of honest testimony and your inalienable right to voice your opinion with the evidence to back it.
    Corporate Fascists are scheming to take over all government systems using blatant lies, deadly threats, dirty bribes, and criminal abuse of our inalienable rights. Naziism is Revisiting America. 99% People Power could crush them like an army of ants. If the people only knew.
