While the left is accused by the right of wanting Sparkman’s death to be because of wingnut anti-government behavior, it’s the right which developed agenda-driven theories. One winger wanted to know if Sparkman was a child predator. Conservative talk show host and former San Diego Mayor Roger Hedgcock supposed Sparkman’s death was the result of open borders, the act of some errant illegal immigrant.
Yet questions remain. One original story made it quite clear it was murder.
"The only thing he had on was a pair of socks," Weaver said. "And they had duct-taped his hands, his wrists. He had duct tape over his eyes, and they gagged him with a red rag or something.
"He was murdered," Weaver said. "There's no doubt."
Weaver said the body was about 50 yards from a 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck.
What's your opinion? Is it possible that it really was a murder and it's now being covered up? That shouldn't be too hard to imagine given what happened on these days in 1963. Or do you believe the latest reports from the coroner that it was an elaborately staged suicide?
