Daily 2 Cents: Mummified Mystery -- Psychic Attempts to Find Flight MH370 -- 'Hangar 1' Episode 3: Alien Technology

Mummified mystery: New details on woman found dead in Pontiac garage

She last showed up to work in September 2008.

The next month, Pia Farrenkopf was given a traffic ticket in her hometown of Pontiac for not having proof of insurance, but she never appeared at a court hearing in January 2009, according to state records.

It was somewhere around that time, it’s believed, that Farrenkopf died.

But it wasn’t until Wednesday that a mummified body, thought to be Farrenkopf, was discovered by a contractor in the backseat of a Jeep parked in the garage of her foreclosed home.

Now investigators are trying to track down dental records that can be used to positively identify the body.

“The focus is going to be to identify,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said. “There’s nothing that will allow us, at this point, to positively identify her.”

Bouchard did not release the woman’s name but records show Farrenkopf, who would be 49, lived at the ranch home on Savanna Drive in northwest Pontiac.

It’s unclear when the woman with family on the East Coast moved to Michigan, but Bouchard said he believed she came here for her job as a contractor with the now-defunct Chrysler Financial.

“She didn’t have children or a husband or a pet when she was here,” Bouchard said. “Preceding that, I don’t know.”

Investigators are looking into what she was doing immediately prior to her death and what caused her death, which may never be determined.

Her sister, who lives in the Boston area, has been contacted and is trying to assist investigators in identifying the body.

“They hadn’t communicated for years,” Bouchard said of the sisters’ relationship.

The Free Press was not able to reach any of the family members who knew her, but talked to a few people in Massachusetts who shared her last name. They said they have a big family spread out across the country.

An autopsy showed no trauma to the body, and the case is being investigated as an unknown death. Investigators are treating it like it could be a homicide, so potential evidence is not tainted.

“The biggest challenge is trying to forensically determine cause of death,” Bouchard said.

Officials said the woman’s bills were automatically deducted from her bank account, and residents of the quiet middle-class neighborhood said they didn’t notice anything amiss. Some thought she had moved out of the country after the recession hit.

Eventually, the $54,000 in her account ran out, and the house went into foreclosure, leading to this week’s gruesome discovery by a contractor the bank sent to check out the home.

Police said the body was clothed in a heavy winter coat and the skin had mummified. A key was in the Jeep’s ignition in the off position, police said.

Attorney Mark Johnson said that in 2003, he helped Farrenkopf incorporate a business called PIA77, but he didn’t recall any details about it.

“I never saw her after that,” Johnson said.

State records show that the address listed with the business match the address where the body was found.

Johnson said he tried to contact Farrenkopf to give her business documents, but he never heard back.

Additionally, court records obtained by the Free Press show that property on Highland Road in Waterford Township was leased to PIA77, doing business as Slender Lady, in September 2003.

It was a 60-month lease with payments that were to range from $1,300 to $1,625 a month. The landlord, Hicrest, sued in May 2005, saying PIA77 had broken the lease and seeking more than $101,000 in back rent and attorney fees, the records show.

The company was awarded those fees in a default judgment that year when PIA77 did not respond to the suit, and a garnishment was filed to get the money from a bank account, according to the documents. There is no indication whether that money was collected.

Attorney Adam Kutinsky represented Hicrest, but didn’t recall specifics of the lawsuit. “The case I handled was so long ago,” he said in an e-mail. “And the file was destroyed.”

Other creditors have come after Farrenkopf. Records show she had a 2005 state tax lien of $1,940 and a $3,308 civil judgment against her filed by Capitol One in 2008.

In 2012, years after the woman was believed to have died, she had a IRS federal tax lien of $28,086. - Freep


Florida Family Was Hospitalized After Eating LSD-Laced Steak Bought At Walmart

Four family members were hospitalized this week after eating LSD-laced meat purchased from Walmart, according to Florida police.

After consuming bottom round steak at dinner Monday evening, Ronnie Morales, 24, became seriously ill and was driven to a Tampa hospital by his girlfriend Jessica Rosado, who was nine months pregnant.

When the couple arrived at the hospital, Rosado, 31, “also became ill and was rushed across the street to St. Joseph's Women's Hospital where they induced labor,” according to a police statement. Shortly thereafter, Rosado’s two young daughters “started experiencing hallucinations and felt ill,” cops added.

Morales and the girls “received tracheal intubation and were hospitalized” until their release Wednesday, while “The mother and her healthy baby boy were released Thursday, March 6th,” police reported.

The family members suffered hallucinations, dizziness, rapid heart rates, and difficulty breathing, according to Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor, who said that there was “no indication” of any involvement on the part of Morales or Rosado in the meat tampering. Castor added that there was, “No criminal history with this family.”

After seizing “food items that the family consumed prior to falling ill,” investigators determined that they “consumed bottom round steak contaminated with LSD.” Walmart has turned over to police “all meat of that type that was on their shelves at that time” so that it can be tested.

Terming the matter an “isolated incident,” cops are now attempting to determine when and where the meat was contaminated with LSD. Castor said investigators were not aware of the concentration level of the hallucinogen, which is often sold in liquid form. - The Smoking Gun


Malaysia Flight 370 Solved

By John Ventre

Multiple visitors to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) website have been asking about UFO activity after learning about the missing Malaysia Flight 370, according to Executive Director Jan C. Harzan reached at his Newport Beach, CA, headquarters office March 11, 2014.

"We have not received any UFO reports from that region during the time of the flight or around the time period where it may have crashed," Harzan said. "Historically there are very few UFO cases where an airplane is involved and then it just disappears."

MUFON Pennsylvania State Director John Ventre said there is no final proof that UFOs have ever been involved in a similar incident, but believes it is still worthy of research.

"Between black boxes, transponders, radar, debris fields, explosion and missile strike signatures, evidence is always left behind," Ventre said. "The one explanation that some researchers are considering is that the plane and its passengers were abducted by extraterrestrials."

Ventre sites some past case evidence:

"December of 1945, five bombers from Fort Lauderdale took off and disappeared in clear weather," Ventre said. "A large Martin Mariner was sent up to find Flight 19. They disappeared also. Six planes and 27 crew 'vanished.'

"In 1953 General Benjamin Chidlaw said, 'We have stacks of flying saucer reports. We take them very seriously when you consider how many men and planes we have lost trying to intercept them.'

"On November 23 1953, an F-89C Scorpion jet was scrambled from Kinross AFB to intercept a UFO. On radar, the two merge and the jet and its four member crew vanish. The U.S. military monitors everything using sonar, radar and satellites. I’m certain our satellites observed what really happened."

Psychic Attempts to Find Flight MH370

The mystery surrounding the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has captured the attention of a well-known “bomoh”, Ibrahim Mat Zin.

Ibrahim, who is known as Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP, arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) today, claiming to be invited by one of the country's top leaders, to help locate the missing plane using a spiritual method and prayer.

"We use fish trap hook and a bamboo binoculars to look and ask for the victims to be found as soon as possible," he said.

He was seen to have performed a prayer at the KLIA entrance.

"During my prayer, my eyes hurt and my vision turned black. I think the plane is still in the air or has crashed into the sea.

"I will come back here (to KLIA) in another two days after performing my prayers and I will bring something," he said.

Ibrahim also called on all quarters to pray for the safety those on board the missing flight.

The Raja Bomoh, who has 50 years of experience, became popular after offering his service to search for victims in several major cases, including in the Highland Tower tragedy, Kuala Dipang flood and the Mona Fendy murder case. – Bernama, March 10, 2014
