Update on Sunny Buttler Death Investigation

Buttler was reportedly traveling from Ojai to Lompoc, when for unknown reasons, he stopped overnight in Carpinteria. His cell phone was found at a service station in Carpinteria. On July 4, his truck was found stripped in a field in Santa Maria. Buttler's body was found July 14 in a creekbed near Gaviota.

Nope. Nothing suspicious here. How could foul play possibly be involved?

Is the Sheriff's Department serious???

Update on Sunny Buttler Death Investigation

I hope Buttler's family hires a private investigator to find out what really happened. It doesn't look like they'll be getting the straight scoop from the SB Sheriff's office.

Update on Sunny Buttler Death Investigation

"We seem to live in an era where everything is a conspiracy, by default, and no matter how ludicrously improbable."

You want ludicrously improbable, how about the fact that "Terell Horn", the US Coast Guard boarding officer allegedly murdered by panga pirates in 2014, is NOT listed in the Social Security Death Index? If that's not ludicrous enough for you, Elliot Rodger and the 6 people he allegedly murdered are NOT listed in the SSDI either - surely, at least one of the victims had a Social Security number. If we still haven't reached the "ludicrously improbable" threshold, Susan San Marco, the supposed "shooter" and 2 of the alleged victims in the Goleta postal shooting aren't listed in the SSDI either - if you're dead & had a SSN, you should be listed there, so I'm sure there's an innocent explanation all these missing names...
