We talked the other day about Ike Densmore, the phony busted by our buddy Don Shipley. Densmore was found expired on a California beach, and I guess the police suspected suicide, according to the Willits News;
His whole life, the last 18 to 20 years, was basically a deception and he carried that through to his death,” [Sheriff's Office Lt. Steve] Knight said.
When investigators had initially reached the Centerville Beach scene, they thought the death could have been self-inflicted — they found a shotgun nearby to his body, Knight said, and other factors that pointed to a suicide.
”But they didn’t want to rule out a homicide,” he said, because Densmore had apparently left other “unusual” items around the scene that made the investigation less than clear cut. Knight said investigators believe the items were likely laid out to mislead them. He would not say exactly what those items were.
While we grieve for the family Ike left behind, we’re still secure in our decision to bust him out. As I said before, he made the decision to be a phony and he made the decision to abandon his family so he could avoid the consequences of the other choices he had made.
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Stolen Valor Act has left the military community little recourse but the one we’ve chosen – that being the village square of the internet with our stocks and dunking chairs for public ridicule.
