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.
Demolition Crews Prepare To Raze Castro’s Home
The Cleveland house where three women were imprisoned and raped for about a decade will be torn down this week.
The electricity was turned off to Ariel Castro’s Seymour Avenue home on Monday after his family and friends removed personal items from it, including photographs and musical instruments.
The Cuyahoga Land Bank acquired the home last week plans to demolish it beginning Wednesday.
A contractor is tearing down the home at no cost. Plans for what will replace the house on the site haven’t been made public.
The 53-year-old Castro was sentenced last week to life in prison plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to hundreds of charges related to the kidnapping and rapes of the women.
