Nancy Schaefer was murdered by child-welfare workers!?!
Nancy Schaefer was murdered because she was wrapping up a self-funded documentary that "named names" and exposed a very high-level, child-pedophile ring.
Well, that's what I heard, anyway.
Conspiracy theorists have been working overtime since the former state senator and her husband were found dead in their Toccoa mountain home two Fridays ago. And the buzz only got louder after the GBI announced that the right-wing Christian extremist had been killed by her husband of 52 years, who then turned the gun on himself.
The AJC's estimable Mark Davis referenced the various nut-job conspiracies swirling around the Schaefers' murder-suicide in Sunday's paper, but he refrained from going into detail.
Fortunately, we at CL are not similarly constrained by the bounds of good taste and objectivity. Instead, we've surfed through the volumes of black-helicopter crazitude out there and can confidently inform you that an unhealthy contingent of Georgians believe the Schaefers were murdered because the Eagle Forum founder was about to blow the cover off a sinister conspiracy between the state office of Child Protective Services, a cabal of pornographers and the International Ladies Garment Workers Union.
Or something like that.
Please enjoy these dollops of delusional fabulism:
- Voting-machine activist Garland Favorito offers an 11-point argument why the “murder suicide theory is highly unlikely." (Reason #1: "It is totally against Nancy Schaefer’s consistently strong commitment to the sanctity of life principles she fought so valiantly to uphold." Well, duh.)
