Okay, I'm backing off this thread for now. Phage is right, not enough info. But I'm still going with work related situations being the most likely cause.

Sounds like he was quarantining himself from his family and co-workers. Checked into a hotel just in case and when definite symptoms showed up he lived in his car and took breaks out in the open but away from people.


ETA: I wonder if he was testing some sort of cure on himself which means he also gave himself the disease, whichever disease it may have been. A few researchers do this just to see if they're on the right track, they're not supposed to but they do.

That some excellent detective work Watson..Uhhh..Holmes...Uuuhmm ... sentomuch..

Not really, zatara. Phage pretty much knocked that theory out of the possibilities, at least that exact theory. It could still be work related, we'll have to wait for more information to go any further.

Thanks for the compliment though,

What I found interesting is most information seems to be cut and paste of the same article. Where this man was seen on the C & O is an odd spot, it goes into WV but you're never certain where.

Luckily for me its too sunny for my preferred hiking locations. I wonder if that's why this man was sweaty. He was hot, not ill.

This wouldn't be such a mystery if we knew where the his meeting was supposed to be, if we knew if the man used his credit cards. I guess that's not public business.

Of course, it never ever happens to low profile people. You think "scientists involved or some other high end researchers" are immune to unattended death? Immune to the stresses and pitfalls of life that us nobodies are subject to? edit on 9/5/2014 by Phage because: (no reason given)

No, that's why this is in skunk works...and this IS a conspiracy site No?

Thanks for your research and input. Lots to think about here.

My intuition tells me that this strain was released. Its funny how these viruses keep appearing out of nowhere. Someone wants to depopulate Africa. I don't trust or like Bill Gates. To much time and money to play with. Didn't he help cripple some African children? This reminds me of that scene in resident evil where Chris Redfield tosses the vial of t virus. There are some seriously twisted rich "people" on the planet. Remember this: the wealthier you are, the less empathy you have for others.

Interesting that this discovery was made today - interesting that this sweep was done today -

Workers scouring government laboratories in the wake of the July discovery of smallpox have found half a dozen more improperly stored substances — including the deadly toxin ricin and the bacteria that cause plague.

On Friday, officials at the National Institutes of Health said the search on its sprawling Bethesda campus had turned up five different misplaced biological materials in recent weeks. All of them are considered so dangerous — they are known as “select agents” — that the federal government requires them to be stored in specially secured facilities. But in these cases, the vials were in regular labs, often part of collections of samples that date back decades. 520-11e4-a723-fa3895a25d02_story.html

Hmmm. He specialized in tropical diseases with NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) in the PARASITOLOGY & INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS BRANCH. Maybe not directly involved with Ebola, but NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci has been in the news saying, in West Africa right now, the rate of infection is exponential, …. "The number of (Ebola) cases per unit time is dramatically increasing."

...Is Rogers just another microbiologist who committed suicide via multiple gunshots to the head? And which is it anyway?

....About two weeks after he went missing, police announced an NIH scientist has been found dead in his car.

....Montgomery County Police announced Rogers' body was found near an abandoned car...

imho - There's a lot more to this story.

As the primo Ebola follower on ATS, glad you chimed in here. And as others have mentioned, untimely deaths around strange diseases are always curious. I've been trying to find more info about this guy but surprise surprise, hasn't been easy.

That sounds fair except DHS watches all the hotels on a continual basis, and the maid for the hotel checks in once a day at least. You have a bigger chance of getting sick in some hotels than giving sickness. As a professional of his health group he knows that quarantine involves telling someone and being under monitoring. Surely he's got friends that would help him out of bad exposure more than just some hand sanitizer and a can of lysol.

Sometimes the first thing people do when they see big mob kinds of people is to go to a hotel because of the cameras and security. They just don't call big government first because sometimes the big gov sent the plainclothes killers after them, they don't have all the details, and they don't call the little police because of the sensitive nature of what they know. And all police require evidence or else they psych-out the person who is complaining, and then 10 minutes later the bad guy appears because he was eavesdropping on the police communications. Big loopholes in safety no matter how many agencies are working on it. (psst: the agencies might have corruption)

As a disease specialist, under under epidemic news, it's possible international companies would have wanted to kidnap him to press/torture him for work, and he was avoiding it. Maybe a rival wanted his job. Yes it's sometimes that stupid.

It must have been something at his work if he couldn't talk about it. Maybe he was consulting or selling ideas to another group, or whistleblowing about certain things. It is an election season, and in the transition some running political types want to clean out their offices and eradicate books.

I would guess a radical group that doesn't like vaccines would want him hurt.
