WBBM News Anchor Dies In Single Car Crash On I-65

A long-time news radio anchor for Chicago's WBBM died in a single-car crash on I-65 in Merrillville Sunday morning. State Police tell the Northwest Indiana Times that Dave Mitchell, 60, was travelling in the southbound lane of I-65 when his car veered sharply to the left and crashed into a concrete barrier in the median. Mitchell, who lived in Lowell, Indiana, was transported to Methodist Hospital in Merrillville where he was pronounced dead. The Lake County Coroner's Office says Mitchell suffered blunt force trauma in the crash. There were no signs Mitchell attempted attempted to brake his 2008 Cadillac before striking the concrete barrier. State Police say Mitchell may have suffered a medical condition before the crash.

I don't see much front-end damage on the car for him to die from blunt force trauma. Must have had a heart attack and drove slowly into the barrier.

Speaking of news - There is a very interesting story breaking around the world, concerning the Panama Papers. The gist of the story is a massive leak of documents from a Panama-based law firm that specializes in creating offshore shell companies. The documents reveal billions of dollars being funneled to offshore tax havens by leading governmental and corporate officials in numerous countries. The leak is 11.5m files from the database of the world’s fourth biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca.

The US as has been said is oddly missing, but supposedly that will change shortly.

The article states I read - The crux of this activity — placing assets offshore in order to avoid incurring tax liability — has been legalized. That’s because Western democracies, along with overt tyrannies, are typically controlled by societies’ wealthiest, and laws are enacted to serve their interests.

I just wonder how many US Politicians and the Moneyed Aristocracy will be named???
