If you guys are surprised at the number of suicides that don't make the news then I bet you'd be shocked to learn how many homicides never make the news. I think it is safe to say that I've quite literally investigated dozens of homicides in my career that have never been given even a single line/second of news coverage. It's almost like you have to be killed at the right time, in the right place, and the right manner if you want to have your story told.

Regardless, an incident of a flaming car with a body inside on Pikes Peak is bound to make the news, regardless of the cause of death.

It appears by the picture, that Michael Phelps has a new pen name, and it is Jaryd Wilson. Perhaps he moonlights freelance writing while resting at the Olympic training center.

Edit: as you can tell by the next post, i edited my post, but i promise it was before i saw that response :)

Well after training at the US Olympic Training Center here in town... Phelps is following up on his long held passion of news reporting! :lol:
