Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Memorial Service Held For Columbus Man Shot In Haiti
A memorial service will be held in Miami for an Ohio man who died from gunshot wounds he suffered during a robbery in Haiti where he was working on an orphanage.
The service for 50-year-old David Bompart of Columbus will be held Sunday at the Tina Hills Pavillion in Bayfront Park. His wife posted on their blog that additional memorials will also be held in Haiti, Ohio and his native Trinidad and Tabago.
Bompart died Thursday at a Miami hospital where he had been airlifted after the Jan. 24 shooting.
Bompart was helping to build the Project Medishare trauma center. He also began an orphanage building project through Eyes Wide Open International, a charity the Bomparts’ started to help widows and orphans.
