...After reading EJ "took @BobbySneakers after MH death ... and has given a new account name" I went looking. I am confused by the new account name. Can you add any insight to accounts?
...The posts from the Jan 25 office visit at BuzzFeed led me to a flicker/Instagram photo by Summer Burton that has an odd caption. "MH corgi puppy is in office right now and I'm dead bye ok #rip". I am assuming this was posted after his death?...
There was a comment credited 3 months ago to a mstuomel. Comment "aww" seemed a bit odd to me. Nikki Tuomela seems to be mstuomel. Looking at his twitter history is interesting. Seems out of place for their usual contacts and commenters. He seems very interested in NSA, Snowden, Greenwald, etc. I keep getting knocked off his tweeting history on or around July 7. No mention of MH that I noticed. Could not go any further back in his tweeting history. ...
...Twitter history of EJ (Elise Jordan@Elise_Jordan) is similar to MH. Seems primarily professional in nature. Would be interested in comparing her contacts and retweets to MH. A quick look leads me of a list much different. Her contacts seem mainstream and conservative compared to MH.
...Any other info on social media accounts for either would be appreciated. I recommend people look at MH Vine account. ...
...The name should be Mikko Tuomela, not Nikko, sorry.
...Why of all the things to comment on about MH death would he choose a picture of the Corgi?

a descent into delusion…is not…a quick…journey
...Every time I think about delusion and paranoia, I think about the helicopters that were circling his house that were intended for him, or, .. so he thought.
...But, you are right, here again. You don't just turn into a nut over night. It is something that takes times, and it becomes obvious in the character you project.
...I have really seen nothing, "Off Kilter" in any of his writings, which, to me suggests, that maybe there is a possibility that he had an innate ability to keep his personal life out of his work.

…I don't think any of us would still be scratching away at this event if we were convinced MH caused this crash of his own volition.
… I have to admit that the concern of helicopters watching him did strike me as a major sign of severe paranoia. The LA WEEKLY article left me with a profound feeling of character assassination. The timing of the story with the coroners report was suspicious. There were few direct quotes used throughout the article. A major story was patched around these. I wonder how Atty Thigpen feels about the story? Like you WanDash I was looking for, and almost expecting to find major signs of paranoia and anger. I am surprised at the normalcy of his actions and writing up to the end.
…The Barrett Brown situation has me about as rowed up as MH. I have already made a small donation to his defense fund and have their web site bookmarked. Barrett does not seem to be as accomplished a writer as MH. He also had a major addiction issue that clouded his actions and has made it easy for the Feds to silence him without any resistance from MS Press.
…I think the use of private contractors by the Feds in this web of surveillance, homeland security, support for foreign policy and combat will eventually be a major story. BB seemed to be very cognizant of these relationships. He was becoming a thorn in the side of power in these areas.

Barrett Brown's contact list read like a who's who of investigative journalism. It included Guardian journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ed Pilkington, filmmaker Vivien Weisman, activist Gregg Housh, the late Michael Hastings, and VICE editor Patrick McGuire. In what became a routine, the prosecutor would ask Agent Smith if he recalled listening to a conversation between Barrett and a specific reporter. Smith would often shuffle through the papers in front of him and then recite certain details.
