Federal Prosecutor Kills His Wife in Apparent Murder-Suicide, California Authorities Say


(GRANITE BAY, Calif.) — A federal prosecutor in California fatally shot his wife before killing himself Sunday in their home, authorities said.

Timothy Delgado, 43, was an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California. He shot his 45-year-old wife Tamara Delgado in a murder-suicide in Granite Bay, according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office statement.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento said Monday it is cooperating with the investigation and referred questions to the sheriff’s office. Delgado appears to have prosecuted narcotics and firearms cases, a search of the office’s website shows.

Tamara Delgado’s mother called the sheriff’s office to check on the couple, bringing deputies to their home, according to spokeswoman Angela Musallam. She would not say if there had been other calls to the residence or provide further information.

Granite Bay is about 30 miles (48. kilometers) northeast of Sacramento.

Prison whistleblower who exposed unsafe conditions in Arizona facility found dead

Police in Arizona said her death is being treated as a suicide.

By Christina Carrega
March 11, 2020

An Arizona correctional sergeant who blew the whistle on corruption and unsafe conditions inside a jail facility was found dead in an apparent suicide, officials confirmed to ABC News.

Gabriela Contreras risked her position at the former Lewis Corrections Department in Buckeye last April when she leaked surveillance videos that revealed multiple jail units had cell doors that did not lock properly.

Contreras initially turned over the videos and altered documentation regarding the broken locks anonymously, but came forward in an exclusive interview with ABC15 a month later.

The whistleblower was suspended for a week when she was caught downloading the videos.

"I had enough," Contreras said during the May 2019 interview when asked why she downloaded and leaked the footage. "Because it’s a crime, what they were doing: allowing this to happen, allowing staff to get hurt, and not doing anything about it."

Contreras also wrote to Gov. Doug Ducey on May 15, 2019 after his office launched an investigation. The jail staffers were asked by the governor's office to make comprehensive reports about each broken cell door, but were forced to make modifications to those documents by their superior.

"The deputy warden was outraged that we reported all of the deficiencies we found," Contreras wrote. "He told us that we were only to count the cell doors that opened on their own when the padlock was removed -- and that we should not have included cell doors that opened with a slight juggle or push or be caused to register an Unauthorized Access alert on the computer on this report."

Contreras warned the governor that the deputy warden was trying to minimize or "present his office with false and/or misleading information and falsifying public records," she wrote.

Because of Contreras' fight, over 1,000 cell doors were repaired and replaced, the prison took on new leadership and was renamed the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry.

During the late evening of March 8, Goodyear Police Department responded to a "domestic disturbance" call at Contreras' home. When the officers entered her residence, Contreras was in her bedroom "unresponsive, with an apparent self-inflicted gun-shot wound," according to a spokeswoman with the police department.

Despite "lifesaving measures" taken, Contreras was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The Goodyear Police Department considers this a suicide and next of kin has been notified," the spokeswoman said.

The Maricopa County's Medical Examiner's office ruled Contreras' manner of death as a suicide caused by a "gunshot wound of head," according to online records.

"Our beloved friend Gabriela Contreras was taken too soon ... a loving and caring mother, daughter, and friend. A passionate person who was not afraid to stand for what she believed in," wrote a family friend on an online funeral fundraiser page.

Attempts to reach the family of Contreras were not successful on Wednesday.

German state finance minister Thomas Schäfer found dead

Police suspect Thomas Schäfer died by suicide after his body was found on train tracks near Wiesbaden. He was the finance minister for the state of Hesse, where Germany's financial center Frankfurt lies.


The body of a man identified as Thomas Schäfer, the finance minister of the German state of Hesse, was found on a high-speed train line in the town of Hochheim between Frankfurt and Mainz, police confirmed Saturday.

The presence of a body on the tracks was first reported by witnesses to paramedics, who were unable to initially identify the remains due to the extent of the injuries.

Investigators said an investigation on the scene confirmed the identity of the man as Schäfer and that the death was likely a suicide. Police did not immediately release further details of the case.

The politician apparently left a note before taking his own life, German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported, citing sources close to the investigation. The note, according to the report, referenced Schäfer's reasons for taking the step.

According to media in the state of Hesse, the 54-year-old regularly appeared in public in recent days, for example, to inform the public about financial assistance during the coronavirus crisis.

Schäfer had "considerable worries" over COVID-19

Schäfer was a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's center-right Christian Democrats (CDU). He had been active in Hessian state politics for more than two decades and was finance minister for almost 10 years.

Germany's financial capital, Frankfurt, lies in Hesse and is the state's biggest city.

Schäfer had been widely expected to succeed state premier, Volker Bouffier, if he decided not to stand for re-election in 2023.

In a statement, Bouffier said that the state's leadership has received the news with "sadness and disbelief."

Bouffier also said that Schäfer had been living under considerable worry and stress because of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

"His main concern was whether he could manage to fulfill the huge expectations of the population, especially in terms of financial aid," Bouffier said on Sunday. "For him, there was clearly no way out. He was disappointed and so he had to leave us. That has shocked us, has shocked me."

"Our sincere condolences go to his closest relatives," he added.

Outgoing CDU chief Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said Schäfer's sudden death "shocked me, shocked all of us" in the party. "It has hit us and left us sad and stunned," she wrote on Twitter.

Another death attributable to the ECB's "sound money" policies.

"Frankly, I don't think it's a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous."

In related news:

Hollywood and business mogul Steve Bing died by suicide following a yearslong battle with depression and financial woes after blowing much of his $600 million fortune, friends said.

Bing, 55, died after jumping from his 27th-floor apartment in LA’s Century City on Monday. He was a notable philanthropist and Hollywood investor...
While the Hollywood community remains shaken by his death, those close to Bing say his jet-set life was enviable on the surface — with close friendships with President Bill Clinton and billionaire Ron Burkle and relationships with a host of beautiful women — but in reality he was very troubled.

One friend, who asked not to be named, said, “Steve was the most charming, caring and generous guy you could ever meet. Yes, he liked beautiful women, but it never worked out. He has gone through a dark time for years. He talked about battling mental illness, bipolar disorder. His close friends are devastated about his death but, sadly, not surprised.”

I keep telling anyone who'll listen that this Epstein business is a lot bigger than it appears, and that it was a turning point in the Secret War in Heaven. I don't think we're anywhere near the end of the aftershocks kicked up by the Epstein snuff, and I can't say with complete confidence that all of the insanity we've seen in the past six months isn't part of that process as well.

And then there's this Steve Bing business, that absolutely no one seems to believe the official story of.

And as you'd expect, Bing is yet another former friend of the Clintons who might've told tales out of school had the Feds ever leaned on him hard enough. In fact, Bing was part of Bill Clinton's inner-inner-circle, along with Jeffrey Epstein and supermarket heir Ron Burkle.

Bona Film Group Executive Dies by Apparent Suicide at 52


Bona released a statement over social media saying that Huang Wei, a vice president at the company who oversaw its cinema division, had died, but provided no details.

Shock waves of sorrow ripped through the Chinese film industry Wednesday as news spread that Huang Wei, an influential and widely liked senior executive at Bona Film Group, leapt to his death from an 18th-floor window at the company's headquarters in central Beijing.

Bona released a statement over social media late Wednesday saying that Huang, a vice president at the company who oversaw its cinema division, had died at the age of 52. No other details were included.

Sources close to Bona tell The Hollywood Reporter that it is believed Huang jumped from an office window late Wednesday morning. The incident occurred at Bona's corporate headquarters in the U-Center Building, a mixed-use commercial building in Beijing's Chaoyang district.

Bona is among China's top tier of film and media companies. The company produced or co-produced three of China's 10 highest-grossing films of 2019, including The Captain ($410 million) and The Bravest ($237 million). The company also co-financed Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Huang joined Bona in 2009 from rival cinema circuit Stellar Cinemas. He was influential in Bona's growth as a movie theater operator. The company now has approximately 80 cinemas in China.

News of his death — and its suspected cause — circulated rapidly through the Beijing film business over social media.

Billionaire Dmitry Bosov Dies From ‘Gunshot Wound’ At Home In Moscow

May 7, 2020


Billionaire Dmitriy Bosov, 52, has been found dead at his apartment in Moscow according to reports from Russia.

The Investigative Committee of Russia, the country’s top federal investigating authority, has confirmed that the body of a man with a gunshot wound to the head was found by relatives in the territory of a household in the village of Usovo. A Glock 19 gen 4 pistol was found next to the man’s body. The Alltek Group, which Bosov founded, confirmed in a statement that Bosov has died.

The Alltek Group said in its statement that Bosov’s death is “a huge loss for everyone who knew him.” It describes him as “an outstanding businessman, a brave and determined innovator, a reliable partner, a sensitive and devoted friend.”

Investigators are looking into the cause of death, which may be a suicide.

Bosov was best known for ownership of the Sibanthracite Group, which united several coal producers in Siberia and formed the backbone of his estimated $1.1 billion net worth. The group claims to hold over 670 million tons of coal and anthracite reserves.

Dmitriy Bosov In Short
Forbes.ru, the website of Forbes licensee Forbes Russia, has chronicled the rise of Dmitriy Bosov. According to Forbes.ru, Bosov graduated in 1991 from the faculty of radio electronics and laser technology of Bauman Moscow State Technical University.

Alongside fellow students Dmitry Aga, Dmitry Shatokhin and Vladimir Mikulik, he started his first company the day after graduation, selling computers.

Early success came through “aluminum capital” after Bosov heard, through a friend in the Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations, that money could be made in loans for the supply of aluminum for state needs.

Later in his career he did business with a colorful cast of characters that dominated Russian industry through the 1990s. Through Krasnoyarsk aluminum smelter, now reportedly a part of billionaire Oleg Deripaska’s empire, Bosov went into business with U.K. citizens and brothers David and Simon Reuben, now billionaires with an estimated net worth of $7.1 billion each.

In 1992 investors agreed provide the Krasnoyarsk smelter with the raw alumina and pay, according to a news story on the Reuben brothers website, what is now known as a “tolling” fee, with the Reuben group taking on the ever-changing price, and obvious market risk.

By 2000 the relationship had soured. A civil war broke out. Sibneft’s Roman Abramovich and Boris Berezovsky unexpectedly bought shares in aluminum plants, causing confusion. Eventually Bosov and his partners were bought out by Abramovich and Berezovsky for $550 million.

A spokesperson for David and Simon Reuben told Forbes that they enjoyed a “very good working relationship with Mr Bosov from about 1994 to 1999. They are saddened to hear of his demise and offer his family and loved ones their sincere condolences.”

Recent Rise
Bosov hit the Forbes billionaires list for the first time this year through his stake in Sibanthracite, formed in 2001.

Forbes.ru reports that by the mid-2010s, Sibanthracite’s coal pit had accelerated its yield, growing to control over 21% of the Russian coal market, with production rising from 6 million tons of coking coal and hard coal in 2014 to 24 million tons of coal in 2018.
