New York Times Story

Oprah Winfrey, age 54, was found dead in her home residing in Chicago, Illinois at 8:21 AM on September 20, 2008. She appeared to have a bloody area around her eye, a bullet wound in her stomach and some cuts and bruises up and down her body. They suspect she was beaten in the middle of the night, and shot in the side with a silenced handgun. According to the FBI, she was killed anywhere around 1:00-2:00 A.M. this morning.

“I didn’t hear a thing, I was up until 4 last night just watching T.V. and reading some books, nothing suspicious was heard or seen, I even went outside for some ‘cigs’ a couple of times and saw nothing” -Markus Julane, Oprah’s close neighbor.

“Who did it?” A popular question that’s been being asked ever since the situation. Well, the FBI has no idea whatsoever of who could of done it from the horrible lack of evidence and witnesses. They are currently ongoing through a house scanning process on which they will figure out more about the assassin, which will hopefully uncover footprints, handprints, or any other prints of who could of done such a horrible crime.

May Oprah Winfrey Rest in Peace.
