Last night while looking for info on this, I read an article that referred to Greg Pinson as her "partner". Wish I had saved that article and will try to find it again to post to this thread. All other reports call him her husband.

his FB page says he is married to her....for whatever that is worth....

ETA...it also says they both live in Denver.....and they are both somewhat active on FB...
so why does the story say she died in a lake near her house, when her FB says they live in Denver....why not change their FB status to where they live?

If there were 500 people in the theatre, then the odds were about 1:220 that someone in that theatre would drown within 12 months of the shooting.

These odds are incorrect. You only got these odd by dividing 110,000 by 500 which then equals 220. You then need to multiply that by 110,000.

The true odds here that someone would drown in that supposed group of 500 is actually 1:24,200,000

Now with those odds, there is reason for suspicion.

They do live in Denver currently...

They found her in Iowa, while also reporting that she died in a lake near her house.

It is puzzling because "near her house" would mean she died in a lake approximately 700 miles and 11 hours from where she was found.

And we should also bear in mind that it wasn't reported she was dead until 10 days after her actual death.

Therefore, why was her body moved? And why are there no details about what seems to be a large inconsistency.

Gallagher was actually found dead ten days ago, on August 7th. Despite recent conflicting and incorrect reports about the location (multiple reports say it was in Colorado, while another says Ohio), The End Run has determined that she was actually found dead in Okoboji Lake, which is in Dickson County, Iowa, about 700 miles from her home town of Denver by car. Within 24 hours or less of the discovery of her body, a short blurb about the death, which did not identify her by name, was published by the Associated Press and picked up by several local media outlets.

Drowning reported at West Okoboji Lake

OKOBOJI, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say someone has drowned at West Okoboji Lake in northwest Iowa. The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office said officers responded to a report of a drowning a little after noon on Tuesday. The office hasn’t released the victim’s name or any other details about the drowning.

On the morning of August 8th, the day after her body was reportedly discovered, the Dickson County Sheriff’s office issued a press release identifying Gallagher as the victim (although they misspelled her name) and providing a few additional details.

Victim identified in West Okoboji drowning
Published on Wednesday, 08 August 2012 06:30

On Tuesday, August 7, the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a drowning on West Lake Okoboji. An investigation found that Jennifer Galagher, age 46, from Denver, Colorado, had been swimming the previous night in West Lake. On Tuesday morning, Galagher was reported missing by family.
A short time later, a family member located Galagher underneath a nearby dock. Medical personnel responded and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Assisting the DCSO were:
Milford Fire/Rescue
Arnolds Park/Okoboji Dive Team
Lakes Regional Healthcare Ambulance
The incident remains under investigation by the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office.

Also...

Regarding the question of how Jenny died, the new Herald article says (cache):

Greg explained that the family had travelled[sic] to nearby Ohio[sic] for a holiday when Jenny tragically drowned.
He and Jack had gone to sleep when Jenny and her friend decided to take a boat out on to a lake.
“She wasn’t a very strong swimmer and I suppose she just wasn’t able to stay afloat.
“The hardest thing is I may never know what really happened to Jenny.”

The first Herald article said that Gallagher drowned in “a lake close to her home”.
The second article says that it was a lake in “nearby Ohio”.
Besides the fact that Ohio is 1000+ miles from Denver, not “nearby” at all.
Gallagher was actually found in a lake in Iowa, which is also nowhere near Denver.

They were on vacation in Iowa at the time.

That is I think they were, because reports change...

Her husband appearently also was a runner in half-marathons back in 2000:

So they were both very fit people.

Just adding it in case it adds to the puzzle for someone else. I really wish I could track down this "friend" who was with her.

someone has done most of the research for us. i caught this link this morning before i came to ATS, very suspicious to say the least!

fromthetrenchesworldreport.com...

if you are interested in the who, what, wheres and whys, this guy has done most of the fact checking. lots of inconsistencies.

she went on boat with a "friend" at night when her husband and child went to bed

she apparently "drowned" but they didnt report her missing until the morning, where was the "friend"?

she was "not a strong swimmer" yet appeared to be very athletic and went to costa rica to surf?

the location of where the death occurred was mis-reported in most media.

why does the husband say "i guess we'll never really know what happened to her?" seems pretty cut and dry if you follow the official story.

anyways, the photo of her with barak reminded me of the photo of the 9-11 truther woman with barak. i think she died about 2 weeks after that photo was taken as well!

Yes...

For reasons of delicacy I won't be speculating about her husband.

I am also pretty sure her body was moved during the night... from Denver to Iowa,

about 11 hours, after which time they made a 'set up' so it looked like something else and put in the report to police... sick people.

Lets just say that without this "friend" in the story... things look very different dont they...specially if the husband wasnt sleeping as he claims.

There is just something about his comment "We may never know what happened to Jenny" that strikes me as very odd. If you lose your strong swimmer wife to drowning , the natural tendency is to find out what happened, not to give up and accept it without asking questions.

I dont want to be disrespectful though. I dont know the husband, and I know the media takes things out of context. And why would the husband kill his wife, when he had nothing to do with the shooting?

keeping an eye on this and doing further reading/digging!

Robert Holmes brief bio at linked in states the following: “My educational background is in Mathematics and Statistics. My experience over the last 10 years at HNC and FICO has been in developing predictive models for financial services; credit & fraud risk models, first and third party application fraud models and internet/online banking fraud models.”

Management Experience: I am currently managing a team building Falcon Fraud Manager Credit card fraud models. I have also managed teams in the Telco and Identity Theft fraud areas.”

How interesting and coincidental is it that in the film The Dark Knight Rises Bane gets his hands on Software that is used to expose the fraud in Wall Street and literally guts the rich?

Maybe he was told what to say?? We definitely need to keep this thread updated as more information comes out. I doubt the husband was involved in her death, but who knows?

This poor family. My sincere condolences.

posted on Aug, 18 2012 @ 03:21 PM

I feel bad for her family..as we all do.

I hope it wasn't anything like that Jason Statham movie about him being an assassin.

The first thing I thought of when I heard this....

posted on Aug, 18 2012 @ 03:27 PM
And they got away with it again. They will never stop, they make the rules. Sad, sad world we live in. After reading all the great research my fellow ATSrs posted I came to the conclusion that there is no way she just drowned like that. Way too many discrepancies. This fills me with utter rage and grief,...oh the humanity, where has it gone?

posted on Aug, 18 2012 @ 03:31 PM
Great thread with some good delving going on.... Greg Pinson is a surgical specialist in general and TraumaSurgery...He works in the Red Rocks medical centre.. Was any of the shooting casualties treated there? The reports Ive seen was that the casualties were treated at ten hospitals or centres in Colorado?

Greetings!

Every team has its ups and downs, it's wins and losses. Yesterday, the Pinson and Gallagher families, the Gaels and our Irish community suffered a great loss - Jennifer Gallagher passed on, leaving a wake of sorrow, sadness and loving memories.

Jenny Gallagher was a loving and devoted mother and wife to Jack and Greg. She was the most giving person who always put others above herself. When you met Jenny she brightened up your day and wanted to know how you were doing. Others always came first in the most natural and sincere way. In her vocation as a nurse, she cared for those with most acute needs in the burn unit, the ER and most recently was recognized for her work with the Aurora shooting victims by President Obama. We were all very proud of her.

We got to know Jenny as a teammate in 1999, she was a proud Meath woman who played on the first Ladies football team at the North American Finals in 2000. While Jenny and the ladies did not win that year, she led the support from the sidelines as they drove our mens football team to an historic Junior B championship. Overnight Jenny became a much loved member of our tight knit community which for many of us functions as a second family in America.

Jenny was excited to be back playing football this year and was enjoying the Friday night games at Infinity Park and also played on the Denver Gaels ladies football team at the recent Irish festival, beating teams from San Francisco and Dallas to win the tournament. She so loved to be with the Ladies that were her team mates and so many who were her very close friends. Memories of trips with the Gaels whether it was for tournaments, camping in Moab, or surfing in Costa Rica would never have been so fond had Jenny not been there. We will always remember her wonderful smile, her loving and sharing nature.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Greg, Jack, the Pinson and Gallagher families and as a mark of respect all Denver Gaels practices and games will be cancelled until after this weekend.

Arrangements for memorial services are still being determined and we will share more information once it becomes available.

Now with those odds, there is reason for suspicion.

Hold on a minute, there is some definite confusion going on here. The way I read the story is that she worked in the hospital where victims of the massacre were treated, so she helped save the lives of those who were in the theater that night. She however, was NOT in the theater herself. She isn't a witness to the shooting.

Am I understanding this incorrectly?

I personally believe something doesn't add up with the shooting itself. However, I really don't see a reason why a medical professional would be "silenced". It just doesn't make sense to me at all. I'm not saying for sure that no foul play occurred, just that if a witness had knowledge of something it would most likely be someone who was actually IN the theater that night.
