When Ilya Zhitomirsky was murdered in November 2011, the web was filled with remorse about his "suicide". What? A 22-year-old Russian computer genius with a media site ("Diaspora") that was bound to replace Facebook, full of vigor and ambition, committed suicide!? I noticed that within the 60 or so notes I read nobody mentioned "possibility of Homicide" anywhere. It seemed the web grievances weren't valid if not one speculated "homicide". I decided to follow the details: The police were the only ones within the grievances that gave any details about Ilya's case, and that was, "An autopsy report will be forthcoming in three weeks". It took almost five months for the autopsy report to be released, and the results certainly could not have taken five months to determine. The San Francisco Medical Examiner determined Ilya had died of "asphyxiation", that is, "suffocation", "lack of oxygen". It wouldn't take a forensic pathologist five months to render suffocation as a cause of death. I believe that somebody in high political office caused Ilya's case to be delayed until public attention waned and they could escape from their crime. My lawyer must watch my videotape in YouTube called "Who Murdered Ilya Zhitomirsky?" and please add the 4-minute watch and thinking about it to my bill.
