Petition for Action

with 2 comments


to Our Elected Public Officials

Regarding the Male College Student Victims of Accidental Drowning

(Known in the media as “The Smiley Face Murders” )

This petition is submitted by the families and friends of the victims with the goal and hope of securing justice for the murders of at least 43 male college students in 25 cities across no less than 9 states.  The cause of death in each of these cases was classified as undetermined or accidental drowning, and related to excessive consumption of alcohol by the victims.  We, the family and friends of these victims, believe that justice remains to be served, and deem that enough is enough evidence in some cases to convict some of those individuals who are responsible for these murders and to bring justice for our loved ones.

We request that Robert Mueller, Director of the FBI, order his agency to conduct a full and thorough investigation into the deaths of these young men.  We believe that insufficient resources have been applied to these cases thus far to bring them to conclusion, and we petition that these cases be brought to the attention of our government officials.  We appeal to our elected representatives in public office to encourage those law enforcement personnel, under whose auspices these cases rest, to devote more time and effort into bringing the evidence forward, to make arrests, and to secure justice for the victims, their families and friends.

 ** The above is a petition that was sent to me (and others) from Bill Szostak, father of Joshua Szostak.  I have a copy of the petition that I would like to post here so people could sign and send back to Bill Szostak but I have not figured out how to attach a document.  STEVE …HELP! 

If you would like a copy of the petition to sign please email me at and I will send a copy to you.

Missing in the Capital District

with 5 comments

Two more people have disappeared in the Capital District and all that we have heard was that they are missing.  Not only is there so little coverage, it took a couple of weeks before we knew that they were missing.  What’s up with that?! 

Could the media please step up and report on these people!
