This isn't just simply a case of him pretending to have more info than he did, I mean he just blatantly lied to his loved ones. He crafted this idea that Time and other publishers were interested in his story. It's a blatant lie

Under his body. Like he placed the bag down in the tub and sat on it. Why would someone asphyxiate him with it, and then place it under him?

Even if the levels were low he had mixed antidepressants with alcohol. That's one hell of a mix that could numb you.

Even you admitted that he had alcohol, and antidepressants in his system. He might've been squeamish sure, but there is such a thing known as "liquid courage". Get drunk, and depressed enough and you'll be surprised at what you'll do.

Also using common sense, how would an assassin know which hotel/room he was staying in, and how did they break in?

Also, believing that the CIA or contract killers would wack Casolaro and not Gary Sick, Theodore Draper, Alfonso Chardy, Christopher Hitchens, and other reporters who published stories exposing the Reagan-CIA-Iran-Contra nexus requires a stretch.

The guy was a total carny, but he got worked by Riconisuto & Nichols.

This is the problem I always have with these stories as to why certain people get targeted & others don't & also like David Kelly-you let somebody spill the beans, then let them walk around before killing them & bring unwanted attention on yourself?

Even if what DC believed was true the all powerful world elite could just paint him as a hopeless drunk, broke out of work writer making stuff up to impress family, friends & women in bars. Of course that elite group cannot even agree on the most basic things at Bilderberg meetings.

When it comes to the mysterious military man at the funeral, unless there is actual physical proof somewhere (like a photo of the medal on the casket for instance), I'm going to go out on a limb and say he never existed in the first place.

Either Danny lied to his family & friends and they bought into it hook, line and sinker, or they were simply in denial (about the fact he fell down a rabbit hole, he was a bum journalist as someone mentioned and/or he committed suicide).

I have always wondered whether what was reported actually went down exactly as said, certainly found it strange they would be happy to let him be buried with that the guy put in there without even being curious. Sadly in 1991 nobody had cell phones & certainly not one that could take pictures & I doubt that anybody there had a camera on them.

Not sure where this is the 'right' Casolaro thread to post it, but just for kicks, while watching the segment (S05:E21), I did a google search regarding Casolaro's files (wondering maybe, if they had turned up in the years since his death).

One of the first links I stumbled on to was a document dump at Archive.org. Having perused only a few of the docs, I'd hesitate to say for certain, but someone might have indeed found them?

Also, someone's gone to great lengths to continue digging into the case

(at the very least, even if you don't buy into the theory he was murdered, this stuff still makes for interesting reading)

Casolaro's work has as much merit as Bill Clinton conspiracy theories -- at least as presented by Unsolved Mysteries. Any historian knows to what degree members of the national security establishment participated in the October Surprise, Iran-Contra and BCCI, and the historian names names. What did Casolaro uncover that was so damn special? The Octopus has been ever thus since 1945.

A lot of the discussion of the details about this case seems like nitpicking to me, especially when there is absolutely zero positive evidence to point to anything except suicide.

But, really, zoom out from the details a bit for a moment and look at the scene from a birdseye view. A middle aged dude whose life is failing in pretty much every significant way (personal relationships, finances, physical health, mental health, career) winds up with two slashed wrists in his ****** motel bathtub. What does that say to you?

and, really, none of his research -- at least the way UM and newspaper reports presented it -- exposed anything legit journalism hadn't already published about the network of national security hired guns, satraps, charlatans, and wise men behind Iran-Contra, the October Surprise, BCCI, etc.
