South Carolina woman reports son missing 20 years after he left home to follow Grateful Dead

Published

A South Carolina woman filed a missing person report Tuesday on her son, who left home nearly 20 years ago to follow the Grateful Dead.

Margaretta Evans said she had not seen or heard from her son, Jason Patrick Callahan, since early June 1995, when he was 18 years old, reported The Smoking Gun.

The police report does not indicate why the 63-year-old Evans had waited so long to report her son missing, but the report appears to be connected to a recent Reddit discussion about the 1995 death of an unidentified man known as “Grateful Doe.”

The man was killed in a June 26, 1995 car crash in Virginia.

He had Grateful Dead ticket stubs in his pocket and a note addressed to “Jason.”

The car’s driver, a 21-year-old South Carolina man, apparently fell asleep and also was killed in the single-vehicle crash.

The Grateful Dead played 16 shows along the East Coast starting in June 1995 before ending their tour July 9 at Chicago’s Soldier Field.

That concert was their last before guitarist Jerry Garcia died in August 1995 of a heart attack at a California drug rehabilitation center.

Viewers baffled as GOP counsel appears to push anti-Trump talking points during Yovanovich cross-examination

Published

on

House Republican impeachment inquiry attorney Steve Castor on Friday baffled viewers with a line of questioning that appeared to be beneficial to House Democrats' case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Among other things, Castor referred to ambassador Bill Taylor as a man of integrity and also didn't challenge former ambassador Marie Yovanovich's story that she had been the subject of a smear campaign launched by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In fact, Castor's line of questioning was so friendly to House Democrats, that some Twitter users joked that he was a "deep state plant" who's secretly helping to impeach the president.

CNN legal analysts rip apart Jim Jordan’s ‘nonsensical’ defense of Trump witness intimidation

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig blasted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for arguing that President Donald Trump hadn't engaged in witness intimidation by tweeting attacks on a former ambassador as she testified against him in the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan argued the tweet can't be witness intimidation because Marie Yovanovitch wouldn't have known about the attack if Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hadn't read it to her, but Honig said the GOP lawmaker's claim was ridiculous.

"His point is nonsensical," Honig said. "Of course, she was going to find out about a tweet that went out to 60 million people-plus. The law covers any way you look regarding timing."
