Larry Sinclair continues to ask questions about the murder of Donald Young, the gay choir director at TUCC, in December 2007. Larry Sinclair is asking why did Jeremiah Wright announce the death of Donald Young before Young was pronounced dead by the coroner. Sinclair has posted several articles on his new blog site and included a copy of Donald Young’s death certificate. Sinclair’s blog was shut down this morning. The reason given was that someone complained to HostMonster. Sinclair’s blog is back up. I am going to contact the management of HostMonster and get a clarification and determine what their position is on freedom of speech.
The Obama Campaign continues to be guilty of what they accuse others of, smears. The Obama Camp has done everything in their power to try to silence Larry Sinclair. Here are two comments from my blog from obviously one of the Obama henchmen:
Larry’s site was shut down because he illegally posted Mr. Young’s death certificate. Regardless of what Mr. Sinclair states, a death certificate is not public information per Illinois law. I notified his webhost, and they removed his site. I would highly recommend you also remove the death certificate from your site. You are also breaking the law.”
Did you notice the death certificate go *poof* on larry’s site?
You might want to follow suit.”
I went to the Illinois Archives and here is what I found:
“Photocopies of Death Certificates dated on or after January 1, 1916
Prior to November 15, 2002, the Illinois State Archives offered free uncertified copies of death certificates dating from 1916 to 1947 to all patrons who requested them by email, telephone, or postal mail. Because the demand for those records overwhelmed our staff resources that service was discontinued. Researchers may obtain copies of death certificates dated on or after January 1, 1916 by:
Visiting the Illinois State Archives Reference Room
Researchers wishing an unofficial and uncertified copy of a death certificate may visit the Illinois State Archives Reference Room. To locate a death certificate in our Reference Room, the following information from the database will be needed: decedent’s name; date of death; name of county and, if provided, township where the death took place; and death certificate number.
Contacting the Illinois Department of Public Health
The original death certificates remain in the custody of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Requests for death records on or after January 1, 1916 may be made to the Illinois Department of Public Health, Division of Vital Records, by mail, by fax, in-person and online. Researchers who are unable to visit the Illinois State Archives Reference Room may direct requests for death certificates after 1915 to the Illinois Department of Public Health.
Contacting the appropriate County Clerk
Copies of death certificates may also be obtained from the county clerk’s office in the county where the death occurred. Click here for the addresses of the county clerks of all 102 counties in Illinois.
In compliance with current legislation, the Illinois Department of Public Health and county clerks shall furnish for genealogical purposes certified or uncertified photocopies of death records not less than 20 years old at a specified fee (410 Illinois Compiled Statutes 535/24).”
Several commenters from the Obama Camp have tried, in typical Obama diversionary tactics, to state that Jeremiah Wright having knowledge of Young’s death soon after it happened was plausible. Read the following well written, fact based comment:
FYI, the church knowing SO SOON is highly suspicious. It is very likely they had first hand knowledge of the crime for the following reasons;
1. A crime scene takes hours to process. CSI has to be called out, as well as the Medical Examiner and a detective(s) to be assigned.
Those professionals take hours to arrive at the scene, be debriefed and start their own analysis taking notes, interviewing those CLOSEST to Young. Photos, fingerprints, trace evidence collection, coroner, interviews of roommate & next of kin.
2. Why would anyone call the church that soon? If Donald Young worked for the church, and didn’t show up, someone from the church may have called his home, but no information would be released from the crime scene that early in the investigation to anyone, not even the next of kin.
Once the next of kin is informed of the death, they are normally in such grief, that phone calls are not made right away.
Donald Young was a school teacher full time, so he was either a volunteer or part-time employee of the church and probably wouldn’t have been ‘notified’ until well after the crime scene had been processed, which would have taken many meticulous hours.
Discovering a friend or relative as the victim of a shooting is traumatic, gruesome shocking and terrifying. Who did this? Am I next?
Church services would be ‘in session’ and the phones would most likely not been answered.
It has been stated that many people got up and left the church. It is doubtful the services were ‘extended’ as a previous poster said was typical in a black church.
It is intensely suspicous the church knew so soon.”
