Author, political commentator and conspiracy theorist Michael Ruppert died from suicide on April 13, 2014.
Nationally known author Michael Ruppert died Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in Calistoga where he had lived for a few months on a friend’s property. He was 63.
A former Los Angeles Police Department officer who later became a political activist, Ruppert was found dead Sunday on a property in the 1100 block of Tubbs Lane, where he had been staying in a trailer for a few months, according to information from the Napa County Sheriff’s Office and business partner Wesley T. Miller of Lake Oswego, Ore.
Ruppert’s writing delved into a number of political issues, including peak oil, climate change, 9/11, public corruption and the Central Intelligence Agency.
As a LAPD narcotics officer Ruppert claimed he had seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing. His publication The Wilderness attempted to expose government corruption. In his book Crossing The Rubicon, he claimed that Vice President Cheney, the US government, and Wall Street was aware of and colluded with the perpetrators of 9/11.
Ruppert had founded the CollapseNet Network
While it may be anticipated that his death held secrets, his partners on the website say there is nothing suspicious about it saying “Mike threatened to kill himself on multiple occasions, verbally and in writing.”
Wesley T. Miller, President & CEO of Collapse Network, Inc. writes:
There is absolutely no doubt or question about it, Mike Ruppert took his own life.
Rest in Peace, my brother.
It was reported he took his own life after a radio broadcast. It appeared to have been well planned and according to his associates, expected.
