  • 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?
