24 years after John Lennon’s death, to the day once again, another mentally ill person, Nathan Gale, walked into a nightclub and killed 4 people, including Heavy Metal legend Dimebag Darrell Abbott.
This also comes 20 years to the day after Vince Neil killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle Dingley, while driving his Pantera.
In each instance, a person that was mentally unstable carries out something that seemingly fulfills some sort of macabre plan.
3 days earlier, 60 Minutes had aired an interview with Bob Dylan, who revealed something rather troubling during the piece.
Bob Dylan is a human being with a soul, like John Lennon was; and yet this admission from the greatest lyrical poet of the 20th century as aired on December 5th 2004 comes across like a Satanic business card; a cheap way for Satan to brag about getting another 24 on the books at the expense of 4 people’s lives.
But what of our 7 foot red eyed winged creature?
He was called “Mothman”. He stalked Point Pleasant, West Virginia for exactly 13 months lasting from November 15th 1966 to December 15th 1967.
Then the Silver Bridge leading from that city over the Ohio River to Ohio collapsed with 37 cars on the bridge. It was memorialized in the Mothman Prophesies movie in 2002 starring Richard Gere, with the memorable line “Wake up number 37”.
Well, 1967-1980 is 13 years.
1967-2004 is 37 years.
Where was Dimebag Darrell Abbott murdered?
On the other side of the Silver Bridge from Point Pleasant, in Columbus Ohio.
I almost didn’t add this in, because it seems just too silly to be something real.
But you know what, even if “Mothman” was a mutant sandhill crane or something, the foreshadowing itself is still legit…
…and it really happened.
…and so did this.
Susan J. ”Minga” Wilcox, 53, of Columbus, died of an extremely rare form of brain tumor, ependymoma, which mostly strikes children under 12, at Mt. Carmel East Hospital, December 8, 2002. Wilcox had only been diagnosed with the condition two months before. Wilcox saw a black “batlike” bedroom invader in her Columbus, Ohio, home in February 2001, went on to be a Mothman investigator, traveled to Point Pleasant several times in 2001 and 2002, and created a personal website: “Mothman: A Life Changed Forever.” She left behind a large envelope of her investigative logs for her son, Brent Fair (also a researcher on such matters), on which she had penned a note to him that read: “”B.R. Do not open until December 2002.” He found the date chilling and prophetic, in light of when she passed away.
