Uptown Victim Mourned And Interesting Background Revealed

Minneapolis crime victim Michael Zebuhr was mourned tonight at a vigil in Uptown, Minneapolis at the site of the shooting, as noted by KARE 11.

If anyone has a report on the vigil, I'll post it. Send me an email -

Some human-interest news has come to light, which should in no way diminish the impact of the savage killing of Mr. Zebuhr. I bring this to light only to show some interesting background of Mr. Zebuhr, and also what some left-wing conspiracy nutjobs are already saying about this terrible crime.

It seems that Mr. Zebuhr was a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, an organization that believes "the World Trade Center was almost certainly brought down by controlled demolitions".

S9/11T members are convinced their research proves the current administration has been dishonest about what happened in New York and Washington, D.C.

These experts contend that books and articles by members and other associates have established that the World Trade Center was almost certainly brought down by controlled demolitions and that the available relevant evidence casts grave doubt on the government's official story about the attack on the Pentagon.

They believe that the government not only permitted 9/11 to occur but may even have orchestrated these events to facilitate its political agenda.

S9/11T encourages its members to vigorously express their concerns on this score through lectures, conferences, symposia, articles, and books as well as other access routes that publicize their findings.
Michael Zebuhr is listed on this page as a "Student Member".

That website appears to have only recently begun, but already gets substantial hits:

Not only was Mr. Zebuhr a student member of that organization, he was "Perhaps the most active student member of "Scholars for 9/11 Truth"", according to Silencer of The Counter Crusade blog. Silencer speculates sinister motives for the killing:

Michael Zebuhr was walking with his mother when two men with weapons asked for his mother's purse. She handed it to them without resistance and he did not try to do anything. Then they shot him twice in the head. Why shoot him if they had the purse and he didnt do anything? Twice in the head? They must have really wanted him dead.
A website called Humint Events Online furthers the nutjob theory of conspiracy:

He was also a member of 9/11 Scholars for Truth:

So... since when do two muggers hit on a group of four people, then randomly shoot one of the people in the head when the money is given and there is no resistance?

According to this story, he was shot twice in the forehead.

UPDATE:More on Zebuhr here.

Police have caught three suspects.

that sucks. that is very sad news.
right in front of his family.

I might as well say it: I would imagine that if someone wanted to send a message to the scholars, that was the perfect way to go about it; I mean, dr. griffin would be too obvious....

sounds very much like a message being sent/a "Company" hit to me...remember, the 9/11 perps MURDERED 3000+ of my fellow think they would hesitate one f*****g second before "Offing" one lowly college student????


these are F*****G MURDERERS we're dealing with here....and never lose sight of that fact, nor get 'lost' in too much esoteric & intellectual realm 9/11 research that you become desensitized to the fact we are investigating cold-blooded MURDERERS.
this is not a game.

the 9/11 Perps ARE NOT 'PLAYING'...

We mourn Mr. Zebuhr as an innocent victim of the Minneapolis criminal element. His background is merely interesting, nothing more and nothing less, but worth noting nonetheless.

May he rest in peace.
