FBI wants you to solve encrypted notes from murder

  • OK, call me a conspiracy theorist. Who would want/need hand written encrypted notes?

    I went an googled "rick mccormick physics" and immediatly got a Physycist specializing in "Metamaterials" from Sandia Labs who presented at a symposium in January 2011.

    Anyone else think these may be puzzle pieces that somehow fit together?

    Im just saying.... Made me say "hmmmmmm"

    • I don't really see how encrypted notes in a dead guy's pocket would relate directly to his murder (most likely something unrelated, unless there's a Hollywood summer blockbuster serial killer lurking around MO circa 1999)... but googling up a guy with the same name makes no sense whatsoever. So the guy who was killed over a decade ago didn't have a unique name. What does that have to do with anything, man?

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
