TIL: The Founder of "Earth Day" Killed and Composted his GF...

The headline is almost like the beginning of a really bad joke...except it's completely true!

Daily Caller:

Environmental activist and self-proclaimed Earth Day co-founder Ira Einhorn had a dark side. Einhorn was found guilty of murdering his ex-girlfriend and stuffing her “composted” body inside a trunk, NBC News reported in 2011.

After five years of being together, Helen Maddux broke up with Einhorn. Enraged, he threatened to throw Maddux’s belongings onto the street if she didn’t come by to get them. She went to Einhorn’s apartment to retrieve them on Sept. 9, 1977, but was never seen again.

Maddux went missing after going out to the neighborhood co-op to buy tofu and sprouts, Einhorn told police several weeks later. However, 18 months later, authorities searched his apartment after neighbors complained that a “reddish-brown, foul-smelling liquid was leaking from the ceiling directly below Einhorn’s bedroom closet,” NBC News reported.

In the closet, police found Maddux’s “beaten and partially mummified body stuffed into a trunk that had also been packed with Styrofoam, air fresheners and newspapers,” according to NBC News.

Einhorn jumped bail and spent 23 years evading authorities and hiding out all over Europe.

When people ask why I don't celebrate "Earth Day" I just give them this fun little fact about the birth of their 'virtue signaling' holiday.

Crime Feed
A massive manhunt followed, with America’s Most Wanted host John Walsh saying that Einhorn could appear to be both a “drugged out hippie psychopath” and a “visionary genius.” When authorities finally caught up with him on June 13, 1997, he was living an idyllic life in the south of France under the name Eugene Mallon with his German-born wife, Annika Flodin.

Einhorn spent several years fighting the complex extradition case, but after 23 years was sent back to the United States from France and put on trial in 2002. Taking the stand in his own defense, Einhorn claimed that his ex-girlfriend had been killed by CIA agents who framed him for the crime because he knew too much about the agency’s paranormal military research.

He was convicted of killing Maddux and is currently serving a life sentence in Pennsylvania.

Now look, I get it, the day was created with good intentions and was inspired because of the Santa Barbara Oil Spill 

On January 28, 1969, a well drilled by Union Oil Platform A off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, blew out. More than three million gallons of oil spewed, killing over 10,000 seabirds, dolphins, seals, and sea lions. As a reaction to this natural disaster, activists were mobilized to create environmental regulation, environmental education, and Earth Day. Among the proponents of Earth Day were the people in the front lines of fighting this disaster, Selma Rubin, Marc McGinnes, and Bud Bottoms, founder of Get Oil Out.

However, in nation where ALL guns must be banned because there was a lunatic shooter....

In a nation where statues must be torn down because they represent the founders of said nation....

In a nation where cups of coffee must be given out for free because a man was arrested....

In a nation where trees must be uprooted because they are racist....

We have to ask ourselves one question....

Should Holidays and Days of Observation Continue to Exist if the Founders were murderers???!!!???!?!?!?!?
