The small and quiet community of Pinyon Pines in California jumped to sudden national attention on September 17th, 2006, when a burning house revealed a triple homicide.
Vicky Friedli (53) and her boyfriendJon Hayward (55) were found dead inside the house: Vicky had been shot with handgun in the head and Jon with a shotgun in the chest. This suggested more than one killer.
Outside, still in a flaming wheelbarrow was Becky Friedli (18), Vicky’s youngest daughter. Her body was so charred they couldn’t determine the cause of death. This led to the theory that she was the likely target of the attack.
Becky had an accident when she was a child that left her with third degree burns on her chest. Because of this, she was deeply afraid of fire.
Suspicion fell on Robert Pape, Becky’s ex boyfriend. According to her friends, they had broken up in January of that year and he wasn’t taking it well. One friend in particular, Javier Garcia, said Becky had told him she was going hiking with Robert and his friend Christian Smith on the day she was murdered.
But police didn’t have enough evidence to make an arrest and years passed before there were any developments in the case. Finally, in March 2014, Pape and Smith had to face a grand jury and were arrested for triple homicide. Both pled not guilty.
Among the evidence presented at the time, were phone calls exchanged between Becky and Pape up to two hours before her body was found, a weak alibi and the fact that both guys’ phones had gone silent around the time of the murders. Robert’s phone last ping before that was at 7 pm, shortly before the fire, and it put him in the highway leading to the Friedli’s home.
However, before they could get to trial, the prosecution decided to drop the charges against Pape and Smith. Both men were freed, but they remain suspects. The case is still under investigation to ensure they have enough evidence for a succesful conviction. The DA’s office has said they’ll likely press charges soon.
According to ex-Scientologist and whistleblower Dylan Gill, who was the foreman for the project, the base is every bit as difficult to infiltrate as that scene from Mission: Impossible. Hidden beneath a bunch of innocuous-looking log cabins, it’s a sprawling underground facility fitted with infrared and visible light cameras, heat sensors, motion sensors, bunkers capable of surviving a nuclear blast, and razor wire … because if something is worth protecting, it’s worth over-protecting to an insane degree.
So what kind of treasure is Scientology hoarding in its top secret equivalent of Area 51? According to those very few who have been granted access, the most protected area is the scripture archive. By which we mean the shitty novels of L. Ron Hubbard, most of which you can pick up at a yard sale for 50 cents apiece. But it’s not a library of dog-eared paperbacks – Hubbard’s writings are lovingly preserved in a titanium, atmospherically controlled vault, on glorious … laserdisc.
Is it true that Freddie Mercury fell out with Kenny Everett because of cocaine theft?
According to Kenny’s ex wife, yeah.
Naturally I’m on Freddie’s side. I’m not biased! *cough* because we know Freddie was generous with his drugs (and everything else) and he offered coke to friends and guests all the time (according to people who knew him) so I doubt he would be stealing Kenny’s. More like the other way round. Kenny was probably snorting all his own coke, then plundering Freddie’s supplies then blaming him lol.
Prince refused genetic testing on his unborn son because of the risks of miscarriage, according to his ex-wife Mayte Garcia.
The former dancer, who was the inspiration for Prince’s hit The Most Beautiful Girl in the World, married the late Purple Rain icon in 1996 and welcomed their son Amiir Gregory Nelson into the world later that year. But the baby was born with rare genetic disorder Pfeiffer syndrome and lived for less than a week.
Mayte first learned of complications with her pregnancy when she began bleeding and a doctor recommended an amniocentesis test to check for genetic abnormalities, but her husband refused after they were informed it could cause a miscarriage.
“Sometimes the body is trying to release the fetus for a reason,” Mayte writes in her memoir, entitled The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince. “My husband said, ‘No, we’re not doing that’.”
After hearing the scary news, Prince and Mayte went home to pray for their son’s health, and she recalls her husband saying, “Please bless this child. We know you won’t allow this child to be harmed.”
Further tests showed the couple’s son could suffer a form of dwarfism if he survived the birth - something else the couple had to deal with.
“My husband and I looked at each other and shrugged…,” Garcia adds. “I laughed. Of all the possible outcomes that had been offered to us, this was the first one that didn’t terrify me.”
Prince and Mayte’s doctor again recommended a genetic test, but the singer was still against it. Their son was born on 16 October, 1996 and Prince was initially elated at the first sight of his baby.
“I don’t know how to describe the look on my husband’s face,” she writes. “Pure joy.”
But after seeing the severe genetic abnormalities caused by the baby’s deadly condition, Prince was shocked.
“And then they held the baby up to those harsh lights,” she continues. “The elation on my husband’s face turned to pure terror.
"Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 is a genetic disorder that causes skeletal and systematic abnormalities,” she adds. “The premature fusing of the bones in the skull, sometimes resulting in cloverleaf skull, in which the eyes are outside the sockets. The fusion of bones in the hands and feet causing a webbed or paw-like appearance… I learned all of this later.”
Following Amiir’s birth, medical professionals worked to save the infant.
“They brought the baby over to us,” she writes. “He was curled on his side, gasping shallow little gulps of air. Because there were no lids to blink, his eyes looked startled and dry. I caught hold of his tiny hand, saying over and over, 'Mama loves you, Mama’s here’.
"After six days he was struggling to breathe,” she continues. “And I said to the doctor, 'He’s not leaving here, is he?’”
Mayte is convinced the superstar never recovered from the tragic loss.
“I don’t think he ever got over it,” she tells People magazine. “I don’t know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven’t.”
Prince died last year (Apr16) after an accidental drug overdose at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota.

And we’ll basically just be friends who bitch about the people we hate to each other and make really lame jokes and like friendship
