Alcor Exec: TSW's Head Mutiliated

Daily News:

Workers at an Arizona cryonics facility mutilated the frozen head of baseball legend Ted Williams -- even using it for a bizarre batting practice, a new tell-all book claims. ...

In "Frozen," Larry Johnson, a former exec at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Ariz., graphically describes how The Splendid Splinter was beheaded, his head frozen and repeatedly abused. ...

The chief operating officer of Alcor for eight months before becoming a whistleblower in 2003, Johnson wrote his book while in hiding, fearful for his life. ...

Johnson said he wired himself with an audio recorder for his last three months at Alcor, stole internal records and took gruesome photographs that are reproduced in the book.

Sick fucks. Regardless of who it was, the fact that its Ted Williams makes it that much worse.

My baseball hero was laid to rest seven years ago.

It's a shame, all the jokes and desecration. Wars have been started over less.

I am one of the Alcor Foundation clients. Trust me when I tell you, this guy is just looking to make money creating a funny controversy. The people that work at the facility are extremely dedicated and professional. If this guy had any real proof he could have attracted a real news crew investigation. Wait, I guest not...NO MONEY to make. If remember correctly Ted Williams family was against the whole cryonics thing. They even went to court to try to violate his wishes. That's right, Ted Williams himself gave specific instructions.
Believe me when I tell you. this people didn't steal his head to do creepy experiments or to play games with it.
If you believe this guy's allegations you are simply a moron. Why? Well, Do you know anything about cryopreservation (besides what you have seen on Sci/fi movies)? I can bet the answer is NO. Admit it, you know nothing about it. You know nothing about the Alcor Foundation either.
You see this is what's wrong with this country these days. People just want to create controversy all the time. Even where there is none. Hey don't let the facts get on the way of a good lynching. How easy it is to stir you ignorant people into a mob mentality and make you march down the street with pick forks and torches to burn whoever they are telling you to burn in a bonfire. You don't know why you are doing it but just like a good lemming you will keep marching up the mountain and will jump down the biggest cliff.
Hey, you fools. Before I decided to become a client I check the foundation extensively. These people don't play around. These people are professionals at what they do. Oh, and don't tell me the guy has tapes. Pleeeeeese. audio tapes can be fake and manipulated so easily. These days anybody can photoshop themselves into any picture, movie, etc...
Why don't you guys look into this guy's background a little. Do some digging before you guys start posting comments like "Sick Fucks" etc...

Do I ever! Shit's so bad, I fuckin' left the place!

I wish. If that were the case, I might not be living on Ontario now.

Whoa, what's up with aponce16! A, I'm amazed you let that comment thru. Obvious copy/paste, not reading, just running around pasting his pre-written comment everywhere (thus two copies of it were in moderation).

But I do like the picture of my alter-ego checking out the heads.

Have you read the book? Actually, I already know the answer to that: NO. Because the book will not be available until next Tuesday -- October 6!

Bzzzt. You lose.

Once again, Ted Williams' legacy takes another hit and is more fodder for the late-night talk shows.

I hope that son of his is paying a heavy penalty for all of this in the Great Beyond.

WOOOOOOW

L, despite the obvious cut and paste I'm glad he left a personalized piece for me at the end =)

Nothing like getting recognized by an angry troll! It makes my day all the time. :)

I went to Alcor’s website and read their statement. Since I know none of you will do that I am posting it here for your benefit.

October 2, 2009: The Alcor Life Extension Foundation denies the outrageous allegations against it that have appeared in the media this week. Alcor especially denies mistreating the remains of baseball great Ted Williams. Larry Johnson, the ex Alcor staff member who made these allegations, was not employed at Alcor when Williams was cryopreserved. Johnson’s previous attempts to profit from sensational and unfounded allegations against Alcor recently resulted in a court order prohibiting him from making further statements about Alcor. “Alcor is actively pursuing litigation regarding these allegations,” says Alcor Executive Director, Jennifer Chapman.

oh and by the way, I never read his book. Why? This guy is old news for the people that belongs to the Alcor Foundation. He wasn't even working there at the time. How can you guys take his side so easily without knowing him or what happened or what the foundation does or ANY OF THE FREAKING FACTS!
I know these people. All of them. You ignorant jerks post comments defending this greedy creep without even checking the facts. Well, I guest right ... you guys are a bunch of morons.

I rest my case.

Thanks for stopping by.

You "guest" right?

Wow, this guy is out of control.

Wow, this guy is out of control.

He's also out of opportunities to comment.

Ish said...

That's make for a wacky story. I'm in fear of my life because my buddies and I used to kick Ted Williams' frozen head like a soccer ball!

9casey said...

I know I can be be pretty ignorant..When he says he is a client what does that mean?....Does he bring his meat there?

L-girl said...

I'm guesting he plans to use their services.

redsock said...

Maybe he works for Bumble Bee.

You know, that story mentions horrible animal abuse in that story. It's wrong to abuse a dead body, but it's much worse to torture a living animal.
