Snowboarder Marco Siffredi beginning his descent down Everest on a snowboard. This would be the last time he was ever seen
Early in August 2002, Siffredi departed for Nepal, intending to make the first snowboard descent of Everest along the Hornbein Couloir. It was late in the season for summitting Everest, but Siffredi hoped that the passage would have more snow. On August 10, he left Kathmandu with three sherpa (Phurba, Pa Nuru and Da Tenzing), reaching base camp in Tibet on August 14. On September 7, the group reached the advanced field at 8,300 m. On Sept. 8, 2002, Siffredi and the sherpas reached the summit at 2:10 PM. According to Phurba Tashi, however, Siffredi showed little enthusiasm for the accomplishment, commenting that he was “Tired, tired…too much climbing…”
After weather conditions began to change, the Sherpas urged Siffredi not to go. Siffredi ignored their warnings and after an hour’s rest, began making his way towards the Hornbein just after 3pm. His sherpa companions lost sight of him periodically. At the North Col, about 1,300 meters below Camp Three, both Sherpas reported seeing the distant image of a man stand up, then slide silently down the mountain. As they reached the point of the sighting, Siffredi’s snowboard tracks were not to be seen. His body has not been found.

Official Notice to the Parents of a Child Murdered Under the Nazi “Child Euthanasia” Program, 1943
Vienna, 6th February 1943
To Mr. and Mrs. Hofer
Regretfully, I must inform you that your child suddenly died from pneumonia. A telegram to the child’s mother was dispatched from here on the same day, and it is incomprehensible why you have not yet received this message. The child was mentally deficient, did not yet speak, and had no understanding of speech. It also only barely walked. It also made no progress during its stay here. In life, the child surely would never have become a useful human being and would have remained permanently bound to institutional care. Take this as consolation that it was surely better for the child to be released through a gentle death.

Year book photo of American highschool football star turned Mexican cartel leader, La Barbie
Edgar Valdez Villarreal (born August 11, 1973) also known as La Barbie (“The Barbie”), is a Mexican-American, born and raised in the United States, who was arrested near Mexico City in August 2010 on charges related to large scale drug trafficking with the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel.
Valdez was born and raised in Laredo, Texas. He was a popular high school football player. Valdez’s nickname, La Barbie, came from his American football coach at United High School; because of his light skin, green eyes, and facial features, he was compared to a Ken doll, but he had little hair.
Valdez’s first arrest came at the age of nineteen in Texas, where he was charged with criminally negligent homicide for running over a middle school counselor with his truck while speeding down a Laredo street. He was not indicted. He became a marijuana dealer on the streets of Laredo while still in high school. He turned down his father’s offer to finance a college education in order to focus on his business, but was soon indicted on charges of distributing marijuana. He fled to Mexico to avoid capture, where he allegedly joined the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel and quickly moved up through the ranks due to his connections in the United States.
Valdez worked for several years as a cartel lieutenant before rising to a leadership position in an enforcement squad called Los Negros. Following the death of cartel boss Arturo Beltrán Leyva in late 2009, Valdez fought a bloody and protracted gang war for control of the cartel resulting in over 150 deaths. He employed techniques such as videotaped torture and decapitation.
