DN Claim: “I am requesting that the District Attorney’s office open an investigation into the possible murder/and or identity theft of Michael Aquino . . . I believe that Ms. Hopkins was involved in a conspiracy to steal Aquino’s millions before I was targeted and that there have been attempts to steal his identity and perhaps something more dire has occurred to Michael Aquino which needs to be investigated by the District Attorney’s office or the FBI. (May 11th 2009 blog post at 11:25pm, text added in modified entry).

Reality: This post illustrates how Napolis approaches research: (1) she makes knowledge claims in the logical form of an  inductive hypothesis without any reality-testing; (2) relies on disinformation about others which fits and pre-validates her views (detailed here); (3) gathers ‘data’ that is susceptible to selection bias; and (4) when confronted with new information that falsifies her inductive hypotheses, simply re-edits her blog text to change the publicly available record (comparison here on Napolis’ original and still unverified claim about the FBI’s visit).

H.P. Lovecraft, the American author of cosmological terror, summed up what happens to those who pursue forbidden knowledge such as Aquino: “That is not dead, which can eternal lie | And in strange aeons, even death may die” (an enigmatic couplet also memorialized in Derek Riggs‘ artwork for Iron Maiden‘s 1985 album Live After Death). Napolis is late on the murder scene as Don Webb chronicled Aquino’s death in the metafictional short story ‘The Sound of a Door Opening’.
