|Matthew Africa, RIP|
On November 15, 2012 Amid conflicting reports and unanswered questions, a journalistic inquiry was launched by TLR into events surrounding San Diego-based Scripps Institution of Oceanography (“SIO”), and directors Tony Haymet, Donna Lucas, and Marty Africa.
According to the East Bay Express, “On September 3, legendary Bay Area DJ Matthew Africa was tragically killed in a car accident while returning from Yosemite with his wife. The death sent shockwaves through the Bay Area DJ community, where Africa had been a mainstay for decades, and reverberated through the blogosphere. Local and national outlets covered his passing. Clearly, Africa was a man who touched a lot of people on a lot of different levels.”
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA’s SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY: Richard Blum — Regent of the University of California and husband of United States Senator from California Dianne Feinstein, operative Donna Lucas, Marty Africa (alleged paramour of James Brosnahan – self proclaimed “mastermind behind the Democratic Party” / mastermind-legal counsel to CaliforniaALL / Voice of OC Director ) and University of California Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s deposed marine researcher turned financier — Tony Haymet of CleanTECH / Pegasus Capital / Phillips & Associate
Accoding to Patterson Irrigator “Africa was heading northbound in his 2001 Volkswagen Beetle on Highway 33 just north of West Stanislaus Road at about 2:45 p.m. Sunday when he veered off the road for unknown reasons, according to a CHP report. His Beetle hit shoulder gravel, steered back onto the highway and spun in a clockwise direction and into the southbound lane before striking a 2000 Peterbilt driven by Hector Alvarez, 23, of Newman, according to the CHP. Africa was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries while his passenger, Ha Le Cow, 38, of Berkeley was taken by air ambulance to Doctors Medical Center for treatment of what was described as major injuries.”
Consequently, TLR has suspened the above mentioned inquiry, which will resume in January of 2013.
