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.
Central Ohio Man Dies After Accident At Maryland Ski Resort
Authorities say a skier from Upper Arlington, Ohio, died in an accident at the Wisp resort in western Maryland – the second man to die on the same ski slope this winter.
The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office says 38-year-old Curt Winklevoss lost control while skiing on an expert-level slope called Squirrel Cage on Friday afternoon. Witnesses told investigators that he crashed into at least one tree.
Winklevoss was treated at the scene by ski patrol personnel and taken to a hospital, where he died.
Detective Mark Pfaff of the sheriff’s office says no one else was injured. He says conditions on the slope were icy at the time of the accident.
