While it seems possible that these are murders, the whole idea they're organizing them nationally and nobody has been caught it otherwise said something over decades seems far-fetched.

Sounds more plausible that this is the work of a single individual to me, especially if you consider graffiti part of the picture, since one tag tends to mean one person.

did the guy at the 49ers game "accidentally drown" ?
 
2019-01-18 03:27:39 PM  
This predict this will turn out to be a legit thing. Minnesota has been finding young guys dead and in the rivers off/on for over a decade. Just seems like more than a coincidence.

"To me, this is one of the most dangerous domestic terrorist groups in the United States..."

How are they terrorists if hardly anyone has ever heard of them? Isn't one of the defining features of terrorism that they're using violence to spread a message and influence political change?

They failed the "terror" part in training.

Start paying attention and looking for smiley face graffiti. You'll see it everywhere. The killers are everywhere!

This morning my daughter was drawing a smiley Face. Is daughter a part of this shadowy gang of killers?

Maybe, but then again maybe smiley faces are just popular and easy to draw.

While I'm sure there are non-accidental drownings or body dumps that police are too lazy to follow up on, the idea of an organized gang of murderers working at random over the US via the internet pushes way past the limits of credulity.

In geographic clusters I'd suggest people start looking for individual serial killers, however.
 
2019-01-18 03:40:27 PM  
Not CSB - There was a kid up in East Lansing that ended up dead in a river in East Lansing under similar circumstances as they're talking about here.  This was quite a few years ago.

Hopefully the perpetrators are here legally; otherwise it's more horrific.

This happened to a guy back when I was a student in Eau Claire in '02 or '03 maybe?  He was out drinking with his friends in October.  They either left him alone or he decided to walk home alone.  He vanished.  Police were out looking for him, I think they dragged the river and everything.  His body finally showed up in March.  I think this might have been shortly after the Minneapolis man mentioned in the article.

Years later I heard about the Smiley Face killer theory.  It does seem weird that so many people wander into rivers when they get drunk.  But a gang of serial killers with no evidence in almost 3 decades?  Seems a little far-fetched.
 
2019-01-18 03:45:13 PM  
His death was ruled an accidental drowning by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office. But a team of retired detectives and a gang expert believe he's one of about 100 victims of the Smiley-Face Killers, an alleged organized gang of serial killers that communicates on the dark web, with cells in dozens of cities across the United States. An additional 250 cases might be connected, but they can't prove it, they say.

*sniff, Sniff* This smells like BS. Gangs don; t operate that way, nor do serial killers who tend to be very solitary individuals

Gannon, his former colleague at the NYPD Anthony Duarte, Prof. Lee Gilbertson, and another retired NYPD detective, Mike Donovan, are the stars of Oxygen's Smiley Face Killers: The Hunt for Justice, a new six-part limited series that premieres Saturday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m.

When Ceril Wecht is involved in something like this, it means two things:

1.) Someone realized that no one was taking their case seriously anywhere else
2.) Wecht felt he needed to recharge his AW levels.

"It's been a difficult road and that's why we had to choose TV, to go to the court of public opinion," Gannon admitted. "We felt like there was no other option."


I'm so, SO SO SO thankful we have TELEVISION to help bring this to light.

I remember the first time I heard this theory.  I thought it was so dumb.  But then I looked closer at the evidence and realized it was even dumber than I initially thought.
