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.
Inmates To Plead Guilty In Abduction, Murder of Sunbury Man
Federal court records say two inmates who escaped from Louisiana plan to plead guilty in a case that includes charges of abducting and killing a Central Ohio businessman in Mississippi.
Authorities say Darian “Drake” Pierce and Ricky Wedgeworth escaped from the Louisiana State Police compound in Baton Rouge on March 4, 2011, and kidnapped David Cupps of Sunbury from a hotel in Vicksburg, Miss.
Cupps’ beaten and strangled body was found in Bessemer, Ala. They were caught March 14, 2011, after crashing a truck in Memphis, Tenn.
The inmates are charged with kidnapping resulting in death, carjacking, conspiracy and transporting stolen vehicles. The filing didn’t say to which charges they would plead guilty.
The change of plea hearing is Monday in U.S. District Court in Jackson.
