The Mysterious Deaths of Nine Gulf Oil Spill Whistleblowers (2023)


In the past year, nine vocal critics or potential whistleblowers of the Gulf oil spill all died in extremely mysterious ways. Their deaths could be strange, unrelated coincidences. Or they could have been killed as part of a conspiracy to silence those who were speaking out against the worst oil spill in American history.

A very important blog post by someone going by the name of Lauren Ragland has appeared on the internet this week.

And what that blog post does is it lays out the mysterious connections between individuals who have gone missing been put in prison under questionable charges or died or been killed in mysterious ways.

All of these people have connections because they were critical of the BP oil spill or may have had knowledge of wrongdoing on the part of British Petroleum.

Now some people are obviously connected to the oil spill others.

We can only speculate on what they knew and regular didn't include all the links on her blog post.

So we went down the rabbit hole, check them all out their link down below in the description.

So you can take a better look and kind of follow along as this video proceeds, but definitely something is stinky about this.

And it seems like all of these critics were trying to be silenced right.

Now, the first case is Gregory stone.

He was an LSU scientist specializing in, you know, marine related issues, and he died of an unknown illness.

He is the most recent person to died he's go in reverse chronological order.

So you know from the most recent person to the case that happened, the furthest away about a year ago.

So this Gregory stone died on februari 7th truth that 17 2011.

Now in early 2007, January, 26, Anthony, Nicholas Tremonti was arrested for child, porn charges and Tremonti worked in Mississippi Department of Marine Resources as an officer there.

Now, his charge is interesting because they went in to his house, seized his laptop and then found the porn charge, which is very similar to the case of dr.

Thomas, B Manton who died on january.

Nineteen twenty eleven.

He was the former president and CEO of the international oil spill control operation.

He supposedly had one count of child porn on his computers, which he and his family members said, was put there planted there.

They found it.

They put him in regular prison.

And because of that accusation, you know, having child porn, he was killed in prison, but we can only speculate whether he was killed randomly by a prisoner, or whether there was, you know, darker motives at play there, who knows what you know, maybe someone was paid off to kill him who knows who debris in centers there's, a lot of speculation, the fact that he had a porn charge leveled against him.

And which is the same thing.

A week later, what happened to anthony, nicholas for Monta who as an officer as kind of a law enforcement, a porn charge does a lot more to discredit him.

Right now.

This next case is one of those cases we talked about there's a lot of speculation as to their connection, John P Willa.

The second was a former Pentagon official and a presidential aide and defense insulting and an expert on chemical and biological weapons.

He was beaten to death in his body was discovered in a landfill.

Right? Obviously, no one wanted the people who did this didn't want his body discovered or really even known that he was.

He was gone there's been a lot of media speculation about why John P Wheeler was killed, because he is one of the most high-profile people of not the highest profile person on here.

He served as you said in the administration of george w.

Bush media reports said that he was seeing the day before kind of disoriented woozy.

So who knows what else went on before Wheeler was was eventually found dead.

Now james patrick black was an incident commander for bp's gulf of mexico.

Oil spill response team.

And he died on november 23rd, 2010 near destin, florida in a small plane crash in november of 2010.

Chitra is shaman who was a 33 year old woman who worked at the university of south florida for the center for biological defense and global health.

Infectious disease.

Research was said to have killed herself by taking a cyanide tablet.

Interestingly, enough, she doesn't really fit the profile of someone who would do that.

She was a new mother and the wife to a new father.

Yeah, dr.

Jeffrey Gardner, a swan.

Dr, there's very little about his status, his this person online.

But this website says and the other things we found through googling his name, november, 2010, he went missing.

He was a swan expert who was looking into the cases you may have heard of large groups of birds just up and dying in the gulf region.

So he was looking into that he's now missing no real explanation as to where he went or what his statuses Roger Reuters was a cyclist who was cycling from California to Florida to raise awareness for the BP oil spill towards the end of the cycle.

He was hit by a truck.

He was 66.

And so what his family has done is they're finishing the race.

However, they finished the last leg in order to honor him and to continue to raise awareness for the BP oil spill.

Now the case of tender senator ted stevens is an interesting one because he was a recipient supposedly of a whistleblowers communication, relative to the BP.

Oil disaster blowout, preventer and it's interesting because his plane crashed in August ninth 2010 and that crash killed other people as well up in Alaska killed nine people on board.

The 1957, the Haviland DHC, three otter plane, a small little plane, and it went down and the National Transportation Safety Board is still under investigation, still looking into exactly what went wrong with that flight.

So his case is open he's.

One of the people who we don't really know, we're, not really sure of his connection to this.

But it appears that may have had some knowledge that could have been very harmful to BP.

Matthew Simmons was an activist who was speaking out against the Gulf oil spill.

He was found dead in his hot tub of an apparent cardiac arrest incident.

And again, his connection to VP into this oil spill isn't widely known.

But he was an activist is very critical.

It would be P another source book, the last person on the list in scientist, Joseph Morsi, who died on april six, 20 10.

He was a cell biologist and college professor.

And he was a near Florida near native Floridian who chose to return to South Florida after studying at elite universities, and he was fatally shot during what police say was a home invasion robbery.

So very tragic cases, very strange cases, we urge you to check these things out for yourself.

We have all the links down below for you to look into each of these people's cases.

Yeah, we don't really have the resources to be going out investigating this on our own being out here from California, but we're, hoping that the more and more the stories talked about we're, hoping that some mainstream outlets, pick it up.

And some investigations will be launched.
