"I was working for the Philadelphia Daily News at the time and was ready to file. My first exclusive exclusive story about the case. I broke the news. The Andrews Attorneys had evidence in the form of recorded phone calls that proved Andrea was telling the truth about the January anywhere. Two thousand four assault after my story runs celebrity justice posts an article online. The story CITE sources connected with Bill cosby today. Celebrity celebrity justice has a story claiming that the accuser's mother may have tried to extort money from cosby in exchange for keeping the alleged incident. A secret they say at least one of those conversations also may have been taped. I responded with another Philadelphia Daily News Story and talked about it on Greta. Van Susteren on the record. Nicole Egan broke doc. This story for the Philadelphia Daily News joins us now from Philadelphia Nicole. What's the story that you broke today? Well today was that in a telephone conversation with bill cosby after the Canadian woman went to authorities that he made an offer of financial compensation to the victim and her family but they never took him up on it. I was talking to longtime longtime radio. Host Michael smerconish Bruce. Castor called into the show after was saying it was a week as and why did she wait so long to come forward. I believe that in a moment Hohmann. I'm going to be able to get Bruce Castor on the program this is the DA. Montgomery County District Attorney. Bruce Castor Bruce. You listening to this. Yes I am utter nonsense. What would Nikki said about characterizing how I how I'm viewing the case? I was startled to hear his voice on the line. It was clear the DA was paying close attention to my stories and wasn't happy about them. smerconish later went on Greta. Van Susteren show to discuss what happened when Castro called in welcome Michael the occasion that he happened to do your ratio oftentimes. He's an invited guest in this particular instance. He just called the an unsolicited because Nicole. Weisensee Egan was my guest. I and he wanted to respond to her. Do you talk about the tapes. He mentioned to me only to stay away from that subject because one gets in trouble if one starts talking about unauthorized wiretaps taps so I stayed clear the subject to all right. Did he tip you off when he's going to make a decision whether or not to bring charges. I think it will come to a conclusion relatively soon. And according to smerconish castor had called the phone conversations that yonder recorded unauthorized wiretaps. It was a clue to what was to come. Tom And there was no way I was going to back down now I was close to publishing another explosive story. And if I didn't keep reporting the truth.

"Source for news. Newsradio one thousand KT. Okay. Nicole weisensee Egan is the author of a new book coming up about the Cosby case, which doesn't drop for a little while yet. Right. When's the actual release date April twenty third the book is called chasing? Cosby the downfall of America's dad, but we're talking about the article that came out yesterday in the Daily Beast, and Nikki was talking about that. She still follows this case since she was first introduced to it almost skeptically back in two thousand and eight and has since then Brad. Amongst in the league group of people who have been following the story and trying to make heads or tails out of it since then the update that you have on the Daily Beast is interesting because as you point out, there's a a a really well documented case of another close call it would seem from two thousand and sixteen can you tell us the story of Dakota James? Oh, right. It's a close call that threw me for a second. Yes. This was chilling. When I when I talked to this woman so about five weeks before Dakota James vanished when he has a close friend named Shelley and she had texted him if he was gonna come out and he calls her. It's like eleven. Eleven fifteen tonight. And he's like, Shelly, I'm hold. I don't know where I am help me. Help me come get me. Come get me. And she's like, oh my God. Of course. I'm you know, I'm on my way, where are you in? He said Pittsburgh. I think you said north side. And then she said, so she's like all right on my way. But then she had and they had enabled location services on the phone, which I didn't even know about. We use them all the time to keep track of our kids. There you go. I don't have kids. So so yes, she actually sees know on the opposite side of the city. And she I mean, meanwhile, she's getting all these text and she sent me screen shots of the tax. And it's like Shelley helped me I'm cold help me, and he was crying and sobbing by the way when he called her to. And so she finally finds him he's outside he's coming out of the Springhill suites. He told him to go into the hotel, and she's pulling up their star vehicle their parks the wrong way park like he's heading right toward it, and she hollers out his name, and he sees her. And then he comes over to her. And he tells her, you know, you tells you like I don't equally did not remember the last four hours of his night. The last thing he remembered he was at a work party was co workers they went out to a bar last thing I remember about seven fifteen and the rest of the nicer blank. And then he's wandering around the downstream to Pittsburgh. He didn't know where he was what had happened leave freezing cold, which is interesting. Because I've been reading a lot about TV tonight is one of the things I think the heat you up so much apparently. So then. Don't have a coat on or something like that the differential between the GP h what it does to your body temperature and the surrounding air freezing cold. And so then she said she wanted to take him to the hospital. She thought she's thinking was he drugged was. He did something really I called. She's thinking was an accident with eating up like he was hysterical crying. So, but he didn't want to go to the hospital and she took him home. And the next day. He just was sort of like, you know, we kind of brushed it off. And you know, she would have to but then he disappeared after similar co workers five week later, and that's the tragedy. If so then it really does feel like it's not just a crime of opportunity, but that somebody had targeted him or I mean, it's incredible coincidence that he would be taken at random words followed at random, but that somebody was watching for him and catching him at that kind of moment. Yeah. Either that was an attempt to that night, and it sailed and managed to get loose or it was just stopping him. Or or something? I don't know. I mean, but then he did he did vanish. And you know, if you watch those security, you know, and of course, the cop dole while he was drunk. He went to the river. Right. Because of course, that's what you do. You. Walk down stairs to adopt. Could. But the thing is that they have surveillance video. They see him at like eleven forty nine pm walking across this plaza in downtown, Pittsburgh, and he's fine. He's not staggering. He's not talking straight line. When Shelly said when she picked him up. He wasn't drunk. He didn't seem inebriated anything. He wasn't slurring terrified and find he's like texting or doing something with this phone just walking across and he seems fine. And then he just walks down. This alley I guess the last shot of them. They got was he kinda lead against the wall for a second. And then the cameras at the other end of alley had water in them. So they couldn't catch him. And then either could have gone left and gone right over the Roberto Clemente bridge to go home, but the cameras didn't capture him doing that you should Spanish, you know, the there's another piece there too in your story where he told her that he had on the initial case when he called her scared said come pick me up disoriented where he was he said that he. He had already spoken to a police officer in the cockpit blown them off. Yeah. That's what he said. He said, I've tried to have the cops the cops out me. And you know, I tried to ask all these questions. I did ask all these questions of the Pittsburgh cops the DA's office Emmys office, they were very rude. Very dismissive. And you've got our answer. You can keep asking questions all you want. But you've got our answer. They treat a reporter like that. I can imagine how badly they treat the families on March sixth two thousand seventeen forty days after Dakota James disappeared. Roughly nine weeks after the original call to his friend a woman walking her dog saw his body floating in the Ohio river ten miles from where he was last seen downtown. Right. Another thirty feet offshore which isn't that far ruled an accidental drowning. Yep. That's what they wrote it. Even though there's no his body had traveled ten miles down that river. And there's a steel and concrete Dan there that it would have had to go like over underneath there's no damage to the body whatsoever. And there's. It's the same type of thing. It didn't look like body wasn't a decompose enough to have been in the water for that long. And the the mother also the, oh, and the kicker is this is the horrifying, ticker. But so they the family never got just got an autopsy report they never they had to specifically request of photographs from the autopsy they weren't allowed to see coda on the mother was forced to identify him by looking at a tattoo on his ankle. They wouldn't let her see her own son, and because Dakota's wishes where to be cremated. That's what they had done with him. But so it took a year and a half. But she finally got and just this past August, she got photos from autopsy, and they took it to Sierra wack famed pathologist to card looks like there's ligature marks around his neck, and then there's also there's broken blood vessels and stuff amongst fingers the top some of the fingers on both hands. Like he was reaching to get that ligature next office. Neck, whatever it was. And so he thinks that it could been translation could have been the cost. And and and part of this story isn't just that the kids are are these young men typically again, the the the consistent characteristics are young athletically built. They are not known for being or at least at one point one of the common characters. They were not known for being heavy drinkers. They were known for being a regular perhaps. Patrons at a at a bar for parties. But they weren't these weren't people who are walking around drunk all day long. And they were they were high performers there overachievers they had a future. They were bright. They seem to be targeted almost on the basis of that. And that's what made me think I'm sure you've heard of the whole phenomena. This rise of the beta thing, and they're sort of the revenge of the beta males, this feeling that some people have and it it exists on the web at least in in word. I don't know how whether anybody really turns it into this kind of tragic action. But that that these are people that are that should be punished for being so popular because of the in cells, the involuntary, you know, celebrate men who are sitting in basements, envious of the popularity of the genetically gifted or whatever. And and so I. I wonder whether that could be a component in this this, you know, this dark beta male thing where they're taking revenge out on the on the popular and good looking right. I I think that's what I was saying earlier. Detectives thought envy thing, you know, you're you're put the phrasing is different way. But these these are the guys they they wish they were, you know, and they're not so. Specifically, the in-cell thing. This is a this is a really interesting thing. There's it's much more formal and the associations of in cells around the country. So where some people thought originally, this might be some satanic thing, you know, or some group that was traveling around in a van, and they were doing these initiations that maybe it's just a matter of these sort of thrill killings that are going on amongst amongst in cells that are taking out their frustrations on the popular. I know I'm just spinning. But that's how I even back. Then I think they thought that there were different cells, and they because they figured that if it was organized in somewhat structured, but because they they figured they had to have different groups in different cities. And that's why you know, one of the criticisms as well, the writings not the same with a smile. Well, it's different thousand different cities different people in it. And as stocks at my story, I mean one in one one group of five go out and do something one night and another group of five might do it. Another. But the yeah, that's the only way they could figure two when they first started looking at this. How there could be a couple different ones in different parts of the country at the same time because there has been that. I mean, there's been like I think eleven or thirteen in Boston too. And you know, you read because this book and you look at the list of the ones in the mid west. It's these are not guys who die like this. If you were you'd see it in every city in the country. Right. Oh, yeah. There was another drunk guy that just fell into the river when he went to I went out drinking. You know, you only see whether it's been like a cluster of these it's not and even statistically, they did a statistical analysis, and it doesn't hold up that you would expect to see this everywhere, if this were just a phenomenon of, you know, this is just this is what happened skies this age get drunk and fallen on the river, then you would expect to see that all of the country, and you're not you're just seeing in clusters in these specific city, we're talking with Nikki Egan, the author of the Daily Beast piece yesterday, we've lifted up to our website at coast to coast AM dot com.

And then the cameras at the other end of alley had water in as they couldn't catch him, and then either could've gone left and then gone right over the Roberto Clemente bridge to go home, but the cameras capture him doing that he finished, you know, the there's that other piece there too in your story where he told her that he had on the initial case when he called her scared said come pick me up disoriented where he was. He said that he had already spoken to a police officer in the cockpit blowing them off. Yeah. That's what he said. He said, I've tried to have the cops the cops will help me. And you know, I tried to ask all these questions. I did ask all these questions of the Pittsburgh cops the DA's office and he's office. They were very rude. Very dismissive. And you've got our answer. You can keep asking questions all you want. But you've got our answer. They treat a reporter like that. I can imagine how badly they treat the families on March sixth two thousand seventeen forty days after Dakota James disappeared. Roughly what nine weeks after the original call to his friend a woman walking dogs saw his body floating in the Ohio river ten miles from where he was last seen downtown. Right. Another thirty feet offshore which isn't that far ruled an accidental drowning. That's what they wrote it. Even though there's no his body had traveled ten miles down river, and there's a steel and concrete ban there that it would have had to go like over underneath there's no damage to the body whatsoever. And there's. It's the same type of thing. The body wasn't a decomposed enough to have been in the water for that long. And the the mother also, oh, and the kicker is this is the horrifying, ticker. But so they the family never got just got an autopsy report they never they had to specifically request of photographs from the autopsy they weren't allowed to see Dakota on the mother was forced to identify him by looking at a tattoo on his ankle. They wouldn't let her see her own son and because because wishes where to be cremated. That's what they had done with him. But that we took a year and a half. But she finally got and just this past August, she got the photos from autopsy, and they took it to Sarah this same pathologist to card. It looks like there's ligature marks around his neck. And then there's also there's broken blood vessels and stuff amongst fingers the top some of the fingers on both hands. Like he was reaching to get that ligature next off often, neck, whatever it was. And so he thinks that. The death could have been relation could have been the cost down. And and part of this story isn't just the the kids are are these young men typically again, the the the consistent characteristics are young built. They are not known for being or at least at one point one of the common characters. They were not known for being heavy drinkers. They were known for being regular perhaps. Patrons at a at a bar for parties. But they weren't these weren't people who are walking around drunk all day long. And they were they were high performers are overachievers. They had a future. They were bright. They seem to be targeted almost on the basis of that. And that's what made me think I'm sure you've heard of the whole phenomenon. This rise of the beta thing, and they're sort of the revenge of the beta males, this feeling that some people have and it it exists on the web at least in in word. I don't know if how whether anybody really. Turns it into this kind of tragic action. But that these are people that are that should be punished for being so popular because of the in cells, the involuntary celebrate men who are sitting in basements, envious of the popularity of the genetically gifted or whatever. And so I wonder whether that could be a component in this this this dark beta male thing where they're taking revenge out on the on the popular and good looking right. I I think that's what I was saying earlier. Detectives thought to envy thing, you know, you're raising a different way. But these these are the guys they they wish they were, you know, and they're not. So they. Specifically the in cell thing. This is a this is a really interesting thing. It's much more formal and the associations of in cells around the country. So where some people thought originally, this might be some satanic thing or some group that was traveling around in a van, and they were doing these initiations that maybe it's just a matter of these sort of thrill killings that are going on amongst amongst in cells that are taking out their frustrations on the popular. I know I'm just spinning. But that's how I think even back then I think they thought that there were different cells, and they because they figured that if it was organized in somewhat structured, but because they they figured they had to have different groups in different cities. And that's why you know, one of the criticisms as well, the writings not the same. Well, it's different thousand different cities different stocks at my story. I mean, one in one one group of five go out and do something one night and another five might do it another. But yeah, that's the only way they could figure two when they first started looking at this as to how there could be a couple different ones in different parts of the country at the same time because there has been that. I mean, there's been like I think eleven or thirteen in Boston too. And you know, you read because we spoke in any look at the list of the ones in the mid west. It's. These are not guys who die like this. If you were you'd see it in every city in the country. Right. Oh, yeah. There's another drunk guy that just fell into the river. When he went to I went out drinking. You know, you only see where it's been like a cluster of these it's not and even statistically, they did a statistical analysis, and it doesn't hold up that you you would expect to see this everywhere if these were just a phenomenon of you know, this is just this is what happened.

"That's D. I R E C T. Two seven nine six four five. Nicole weisensee Egan is the author of a new book coming up about the Cosby case, which doesn't drop for a little while yet. Right. When's the actual release date April twenty third? The book is called chasing. Cosby the downfall of America's dad, but we're talking about the article that came out yesterday in the Daily Beast, and Nikki was talking about that. She still follows this case since she was first introduced to it. Almost skeptically back in two thousand and eight and has since then brats amongst in the leap group of people who've been following the story and trying to make heads or tails out of it since then. The update that you have on the Daily Beast was interesting because as you point out, there's a a really well documented case of another close call it would seem from two thousand and sixteen can you tell us the story of Dakota James? Oh, right. So we took close call that threw me for a second. Yes. This was chilling. When I when I talked to this woman so about five weeks before Dakota James vanished when he has a close friend named Shelley. And she had texted him. See if he was gonna come out and he calls her. It's like eleven thirty eleven fifteen tonight. And he's like, Shelly, I'm cold. I don't know where I am healthy helped me come get me. Come get me. And she's like, oh my God. Of course. I'm you know, I'm on my way, where are you in? He said it's Berg, I think he said north side by side. And then she said, so she's like all right on my way. But then she had and they had enabled location services on the phone, which I didn't even know about. We use them all the time to keep track of our kids have kids. So. So so yes, she actually sees you know, on the opposite side of the city, and she and meanwhile, she's getting all these texts from him, and she sent me screen shots of the tax. And it's like Shelley helped me I'm cold help me, and he was crying and sobbing by the way when he called her to. And so she finally finds him he's outside he's coming out of the Springhill suites. She told him to go in into the hotel, and she's pulling up there's this stock vehicle their parks the wrong way Parkway, and he's heading right toward it and she hollers out his name, and he sees her and then he comes over to her. And he tells her, you know, she's like. I don't believe he did not remember the last four hours of his night. The last thing he remembered he was at a work party with some coworkers. They went out to a bar my singer remember about seven fifteen and the rest of the nicer blank. And then he's wandering around the downstream. And pittsburgh. He didn't know where he was what had happened leaves freezing cold, which is interesting because I've been reading a lot about GBH. And that is one of the things I think the heat you up so much apparently. So then. You don't have a code on or something like the the differential between the GP h what it does to your body temperature and the surrounding Arab freezing cold. And so then she said she wanted to take him to the hospital. She thought she's thinking was he drugged was. He did something when he first called. She's thinking was was it. An accident was eaten up like he was hysterical crying. So, but he didn't want to go to the hospital and she took him home. And the next day. He was sort of like, a, you know, we kind of brushed it off. And you know, she would have to but then he disappeared after a Simone. I'd co workers five week later, and that's the tragedy. So then it really does feel like it's not just a crime of opportunity, but that somebody had targeted him or I mean, it's incredible coincidence that he would be taken at random works followed at random, but that somebody was watching for him and catching him at that kind of moment. Yeah. Either that was an attempt that night and it failed and managed to get loose. Or it was just stocking hammer or something, I don't know. I mean, but then he did eat advantage. And you know, if you watch those security, you know, and of course, the cops though, he drunk you went to the river. Right. Because of course, that's what you do. You. Walk down. Stairs to adopt. Doctor. You could. But the thing is that they have surveillance video. They see him at like eleven forty nine pm walking across this plaza in downtown, Pittsburgh, and he's fine. He's not staggering. He's not a straight line. When Shelly said when she picked him up. He wasn't drunk. He didn't seem neighbor gated anything. He wasn't slurring. Terrified findings like texting or doing something with his phone just walking across and he seems fine. And then he just walks down. This alley I guess the last shot of them. They got was he of lead against the wall for second. And then the cameras at the other end of the alley have water in them. They couldn't catch him, and then either could've gone left and then gone right over the Roberto Clemente bridge to go home, but the cameras didn't capture him doing that you should finished. You know, the there's that other piece there too in your story where he told her that he had on the initial case when he called her scared said come pick me up disoriented where he was he said that he had already spoken to a police officer in the cockpit blown them off. Yeah. That's what he said. He said, I've tried to have the cops the cops won't help me. And you know, I tried to ask all these questions. I did ask all these questions of the Pittsburgh cops the DA's office Emmys office, they were very rude. Very dismissive. And you've got an answer you can keep asking. Questions all you want? But you've got our answer. They treat a reporter like that. I can imagine how badly they treat the families on March sixth two thousand seventeen forty days after Dakota James disappeared. Roughly nine weeks after the original call to his friend a woman walking her dog saw his body floating in the Ohio river ten miles from where he was last seen downtown. Another thirty feet offshore which isn't that far ruled an accidental drowning. Yep. That's what they ruled it even though there's no like if his body had traveled ten miles down that river, and there's a steel and concrete Dan, there would have had to go like over there's no damage to the body whatsoever. And there's. It's the same type of thing. It didn't look what body wasn't a decomposed enough to have been in the water for that long. And the the mother also there, oh, the kicker is this is the horrifying kicker. But so they the family never got. I just got an autopsy report they never they had to specifically request the photographs from the autopsy they weren't allowed to see Dakota on the mother was forced to identify him by looking at a tattoo on his ankle.

Oh, right. So he's a close call that threw me for a second. Yes. So this was chilling. When I when I talked to this woman so about five weeks before Dakota James vanished when he has a close friend named Shelley. And she had texted him. See if he was gonna come out and he calls her. It's like eleven eleven fifty tonight. He's like Shelly on hold. I don't know where I am help me. Help me come get me. Come get me. And she's like, oh my God. Of course. I'm you know, I'm on my way, where are you? And he said, Pittsburgh, I think you said northside northside, and then she said, so she's like all right on my way. But then she had an they had enabled location services on the phone, which I didn't even know about because she leaves him all the time to keep track of our kids. I don't have kids. So. So so yes, she actually sees on the opposite side of the city. And she I mean while she's getting all these texts and she sent me screen shots of the tax. And it's like Shelley helped me I'm cold help me, and he was crying and sobbing by the way when he called her to. And so she finally finds them he's outside. He's coming out of a spring. Sweet. She told him to go in the into the hotel, and she's pulling up there's this stark vehicle their parks the wrong way park like he's heading right toward it, and she hollers out his name, and he sees her. And then he comes over to her. And he tells her, you know, she's like I don't equally he did not remember the last four hours of his night. The last thing he remembered he was at a work party was co workers they went out to a bar last thing I remember about seven fifteen and the rest of the nicer blank. And then he's wandering around the down three Pittsburgh. He didn't know where he was what had happened. He was freezing cold, which is interesting. Because I've been reading a lot about GBH. And that is one of the things I think the heat you up so much apparently. So then. The code honor or something like that the differential between the GP h what it does to your body temperature and the surrounding air freezing cold. And so then she said she wanted to take him to the hospital. She thought she's thinking was he drugged was. He did something really I called you thinking was an accident with eating up like he was hysterical crying. So, but he didn't want to go to the hospital and she took him home. And the next day. He just sort of like, you know, we kind of brushed it off. And you know, she would have to. But then he disappeared after Simone. I'd co workers five weeks later, and that's the tragedy of so then it really does feel like it's not just a crime of opportunity, but that somebody had targeted him or I mean, it's incredible coincidence that he would be taken at random works followed at random, but that somebody was watching for him and catching him at that kind of moment. Yeah. Either that was an attempt at night and it failed in managed to get loose. Or it was just stocking hammer or something I I don't know. I mean, but then he. We did eat advantage. And you know, if you if you watch those security, you know, and of course, the cops while he was drunk. He went to the river. Right. Because of course, that's what you do. You walk down these stairs. Docked could. You could. But the thing is that they have surveillance video. They see him at like eleven forty nine pm walking across this plaza in downtown, Pittsburgh, and he's fine. He's not staggering. He's not walking a straight line. When Shelly said when she picked him up. He wasn't drunk. He didn't seem inebriated anything. He wasn't slurring terrified findings like texting or doing something with his phone just walking across and he seems fine. And then he just walks down. This alley I guess the last shot of God was he kinda lead against the law for a second. And then the cameras at the other end of the alley have water in them. So they couldn't catch him, and then either could've gone left and then gone right over Roberto Clemente bridge to go home, but the cameras didn't capture him doing that you should finish. The there's that other piece there too in your story where he told her that he had on the initial case when he called her scared said come pick me up disoriented where he was he said that he. Had already spoken to a police officer in the cockpit blown them off. Yeah. That's what he said. He said, I've tried to stop the cops the cops won't help me. And you know, I tried to ask all these questions. I did ask all these questions of the Pittsburgh cops the DA's office Emmys office, they were very rude. Very dismissive. And you've got an answer you can keep asking questions all you want. But you've got our answer. They treat a reporter like that. I can imagine how badly they treat the families on March sixth two thousand seventeen forty days after Dakota James disappeared. Roughly nine weeks after the original call to his friend a woman walking her dog saw his body floating in the Ohio river ten miles from where he was last seen downtown. Right. Another thirty feet offshore. Which isn't that far ruled an accidental drowning a guy that's what they rolled it. Even though there's no his body had traveled ten miles down that river, and there's a steel and concrete, Dan there that it would have had to go like over underneath there's no damage to the body whatsoever. And there's. It's the same type of thing. It didn't look like body wasn't a decomposed enough to have been in the water for that long. And the the mother also, oh, and the kicker is this is the horrifying kicker. So they the family never got just got an autopsy report they never they had to specifically request photographs from the autopsy they weren't allowed to see Dakota on the mother was forced to identify him by looking at a tattoo on his ankle. They wouldn't let her see her own son, and because Dakota's wishes where to be cremated. That's what they had done with him. But it took a year and a half. But she finally got in just this past August, she got photos from autopsy, and they took it to Sarah lack this same pathologist to occur. It looks like there's ligature marks around his neck. And then there's also there's broken blood vessels and stuff. Amongst fingers tops some of the things about hands. Like he was reaching to get that ligature neck off his neck, whatever it was. And so he thinks that they could have been relation could have been the cost of. And and part of this story isn't just the kids are are these young men typically again, the the the consistent characteristics are young lettuce built. They are not known for being or at least at one point the one of the common characters they were not known for being heavy drinkers. They were known for being regular perhaps. Patrons at a at a bar for parties. But they weren't these people who are walking around drunk all day long. And they were they were high performers there overachievers. They had a future. They were bright the seemed to be targeted almost on the basis of that. And that's what made me think I'm sure you've heard of the whole phenomena. This rise of the beta thing, and they're sort of the revenge of the beta males, this the feeling that some people have and it it exists on the web at least in in word. I don't know if how whether anybody really turns it into this kind of tragic action. But that these are people that are that should be punished for being so popular because of the in cells, the involuntary, you know, celebrate men who are sitting in basements, envious of the popularity of the genetically gifted or whatever. And and so I wonder whether that could be a component in this this this dark beta male thing where they're taking revenge out on the on the popular and good looking right. I I think that's what I was. Saying earlier detectives thought to envy thing, you know, you're the phrasing a different way. But these these are the guys they they wish they were, you know, and they're not so right. Specifically, the in-cell thing. This is a this is a really interesting. There's it's much more formal and the associations of in cells around the country. So we're some people thought originally, this might be some satanic thing. You know, or some group that was traveling around in a van than they were doing these initiations that maybe it's just a matter of these sort of thrill killings that are going on amongst amongst in cells that are taking out their frustrations on the popular. I know I'm just spinning. But that's how I I think even back then I think they thought that there were different cells, and they because they figured that. It was it was organized in somewhat structured, but because they they figured they had to have different groups in different cities. And that's why you know, one of the criticisms has been well, the writings not the same as well. It's different thousand different cities different and docks at at my story. I mean, one in one one group of five go out and do something one night in another group of five might do it another. But the yeah, that's the only way they could figure two when they first start looking at this as to how there could be a couple different ones in different parts of the country at the same time because there has been that. I mean, there's been like I think eleven or thirteen in Boston too. And you know, you read because this book and you look at the list of the ones in the mid west. It's these are not guys who die like this, though, if you were you'd see it in every city in the country, right? Oh, yeah. There was another drunk guy. It just fell into the river when he went out drinking. You know, you only see whether it's been like a cluster of not and even statistically, they did a statistical analysis, and it doesn't hold up that you expect to see this everywhere if these were just a phenomenon of, you know, this is just this is what happened guys age get drunk and fall the risk. River than you would expect to see that all over the country, and you're not you're just seeing that in clusters in these specific city, we're talking with the Nikki Egan the author of the Daily Beast piece yesterday, we've linked up to our website at coast to coast AM dot com.
