Daily 2 Cents: Deadly Apparition -- Cattle Mutilation in Gasconade County, MO -- 160-Year-Old Man?

Motorcyclist ‘dodging an apparition’ dies after crashing into ravine

A 55-year-old man from Kampung Bayur perished in an accident after he fell into a ravine when going down a hill on a motorcycle from a resort at Borneo Heights here Sunday.

The victim, identified as Duren Ango, was with another friend who was riding a separate motorcycle. They were on their way back home around 6pm when the incident occurred.

Prior to the tragedy, it was said that the victim had tried to dodge a ‘white figure’ when he lost control of his machine and crashed through the road barrier before plunging into the 30-meter deep ravine.

The hilly terrain gave difficulties to the rescue teams from the Fire and Rescue Department, Civil Defence Department and police.

The operation to retrieve the body from the scene only ended around 2am.

The body was taken by the police to the Sarawak General Hospital for a post-mortem. - The Borneo Post

Cattle Mutilation - Gasconade County, Missouri

As reported to ASD by phone:

The witness contacted me on 9/10/2013 after finding my website He found a 6-year old healthy Black Angus cow who was pregnant- dead on the morning of the 6th at 9:00 a.m. He had gone to his ranch to check on his cattle as he normally does every day when he noticed that the entire herd was standing in a circle looking at something. He approached, the herd dispersed, and he saw a cow lying on the ground with her head facing east and her legs pointing North. The animal was still warm to the touch, the blood had not clotted, and rigor had not set in yet, so he estimated that the animal had been dead only four to six hours. The witness said that it is not normal to find a cow dead with all four legs pointing straight.

The witness then called the Gasconade County Sheriff, who sent a deputy to the location to take a report. The deputy said that the cow obviously did not die of natural causes.

MUTILATION: The rancher took photos of the animal, then checked and found that the toungue had been cut out below the esophogus, which he said would be very difficult to do even for a trained person. He searched for bullet holes but found none, and then skinned the skull area in order to determine if there was a bullet hole but found none, nor was there a hole in the neck. Two teats were cut off, and a large setion of the head around the jaw was removed with hide, muscle, and tissue gone, including the gums, and very little blood was found on the site. He could find no scratches or cut marks on the bone. There was also a cut out section in the vaginal area. The witness, who has veterinary training and worked in a meat packing plant when he was younger, said that the cuts were made with surgical precision.

Ethiopian man claims to be world's oldest man at 160-years-old

An Ethiopian farmer is apparently able to recount a century worth of African history which may help prove that he is the world's oldest man.

Nearly 120 years ago the Kingdom of Italy invaded Ethiopia sparking the First Italo-Ethiopian War, Dhaqabo Ebba an Ethiopian farmer claims he remembers the war vividly, and more so that he is 160-years-old. If true he would be the new record holder beating out 115-year-old Misao Okawa from Japan.

Unfortunately for Ebba, no birth certificate exists that can substantiate his claim.

However reporter Mohammed Ademo of Omoriya TV says that Dhaqabo Ebba provided so much detail about the history of his region that there is no doubt that the humble African farmer is at least 160-years of age.

"When Italy invaded Ethiopia I had two wives,and my son was old enough to herd cattle," said Mr Ebba.

If Ebba's claim can be medically proven he would turn out to be 46-years older than the oldest man ever recorded by history. He would also overtake French national Jeanne Calment who lived to be 122-years-old dying in 1997.

Even if Dhaqabo Ebba doesn't gain certification as the world's oldest man ever, the knowledge he holds could be invaluable.

“Ebba speaks with a firm, articulate voice while recounting his life story. He may no longer be able to see but his memories of historical facts seem sharp,” interviewer Mohammed Ademo said. “Given that the Oromo like many African cultures are an oral society, ‘each time an elder dies, a library is lost.’ Ebba’s is one such library from which much can still be preserved.” - Digital Journal
