Jonn Lilyea, a retired infantry platoon sergeant in the U.S. Army and blogger at the military blog This Ain’t Hell, said over the years he has helped to uncover 96 people that faked military credentials and awards, including more recently Densmore.
Lilyea’s friend Don Shipley — a former SEAL himself, featured in the ABC 7 report — first told Lilyea of his suspicions about Densmore.
The West Virginia resident said he has about 7,000 hits a day on his blog, and it’s his readers who usually tip him off about people who might be posing.
”I guess it’s pretty common to run into,” he said. “We (veterans) kind of know each other.”
Lilyea has been following the Densmore case closely on his blog.
”While we grieve for the family Ike left behind, we’re still secure in our decision to bust him out,” reads the latest post about Densmore on the blog.
I wish I knew more details of how Densmore tried to coverup his suicide, but no one is talking. To me, at least.
