Was Michael Hastings murdered?
At least according to a report by Hastings’ good friend, Staff Sgt. Joseph Biggs, who received a frantic email hours before Hastings was incinerated after his car supposedly slammed into a tree.
In the email, Hastings describes being investigated by the FBI and needing to go into hiding in order to work on a “big story.”
According to Joseph Biggs, Elise Jordan, the widow of Michael Hastings, not only believes Hastings was murdered, but vows to bring his murderers to justice!
She’s vowing to take down whoever did this. She’s a fighter.
But didn’t the Los Angeles police department come out within hours stating that there was no foul play? Didn’t the FBI offer a “helping hand” in the accident investigation to help identify Hastings, matching fingerprints they had on file?
Yes and yes.
Although why the FBI were involved when it was merely an accident, why exactly they had Hastings’ fingerprints on file, and how they were able to match fingerprints when Hastings was burned down to the bone is a mystery.
Hastings may or may not have been murdered. But one thing is clear: The narrative of how the accident occurred is a total fabrication.
Here’s how the story goes: On June 18 at 4:30 in the morning, Hastings was traveling at 100 miles an hour in an upper class suburban neighborhood in the 600 block of North Highland Avenue in Los Angeles. Moving at such a high rate of speed, he lost control of the vehicle—a 2013 Mercedes C250 Coupe—and slammed into a palm tree. Upon impact, the car exploded, ejecting the engine and part of the drivetrain several hundred feet, simultaneously bursting into flames.
The claim that Hastings was traveling at 100 miles an hour when he hit the tree is false. This claim was substantiated by a roving local reporter who had a dash cam running. The video shows Hastings’ car blowing through a red light at high speed in a business district several minutes before the crash. The dash cam video is highly suspect. As shown in the above video, the video taken frame-by-frame seems to show an unexplained anomaly, in which the background appears to be in front of the car on one frame.
Whether this video is doctored or not, however, is irrelevant. The vehicle was absolutely not traveling at 100 mph when it hit the tree. There is little damage to the tree or the front of the vehicle, as would be expected from a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed, which is probably why they covered up the front of the car with a large sheet once the media began to arrive. Further, when the engine and drivetrain were ejected, as required by the laws of physics, the engine would be thrown in the general direction the vehicle was traveling. In fact, it was thrown at a ninety degree angle from which the vehicle hit the tree.
