Biochemical Weapons Expert, Arrested in Ottawa
This Smells to High Heaven.
The RCMP issued an internal communication Tuesday about Christopher Phillips, who lives in the Halifax area, identifying him as an ex-military weapons specialist with possible mental-health issues, sources confirmed to CBC News.
Phillips, who was living in the Halifax area, is the ex-husband of gymnast Shannon Miller, the most decorated gymnast in U.S. history, whose achievements included winning seven Olympic medals. Phillips and Miller divorced in 2006.
The RCMP communication said Phillips may have been in possession of two dangerous chemicals:
- – Osmium, a precious metal.
- – Osmium tetroxide, a highly poisonous and volatile chemical that can penetrate skin easily that should not be used without a fume hood.
Police had evacuated the Chimo Hotel at 1199 Joseph Cyr St. on Tuesday night and closed off the surrounding roads as a precaution after they received word at about 10:15 p.m. ET of the potential threat of a man they believe had checked into the hotel.
RCMP sources earlier told CBC News the investigation was linked to the evacuation of two Nova Scotia neighbourhoods, after a suspicious package containing hazardous chemicals was found in the garage of a Cole Harbour, N.S., home. Twenty homes were evacuated. Later, an evacuation order was issued in Grand Desert, and it remains in effect.
Ottawa police said they are holding Phillips on a Canada-wide warrant issued relating to charges in Nova Scotia.
Police sources said the suspect is from Halifax and drove to Ottawa in a van. They also said a van believed to belong to the suspect at the hotel contained chemicals.
Police were tipped off after receiving a call from Phillips’s wife saying he was en route to Ottawa.
Added note to this article and name of Christopher Phillips – We thought the name sounded familiar with the Sandy Hook information. If anyone has more info on this name being used in Sandy Hook please post below this article in the comment section.
Always the same details used: as with James Holmes and Adam Lanza – Genius with Metal-Health Issues:
Identifying him as an ex-military weapons specialist with possible mental-health issues.
It would be interesting to know exactly what recent projects Christopher Phillips may have been working on and for whom. If you recall these past headlines on Scientists, Christopher Phillips may seem to have gotten off lightly, with just an arrest.
We might expect the headlines on Ebola and other disease to be the front page again soon.
When we review most of the headlines related to past Biochemical Weapons Experts / Scientists and Microbiologists, it is an interesting read.
Dead Scientists 2004-2015
Alberto Behar, Robotics expert NASA at the JPL. died instantly when his single-engine plane nosedived shortly after takeoff Friday from Van Nuys Airport He worked on two Mars missions and spent years researching how robots work in harsh environments like volcanoes and underwater As part of the NASA team exploring Mars with the Curiosity rover, Behar was responsible for a device that detected hydrogen on the planet’s surface as the rover moved. 47-year old NASA Scientist Alberto Behar helped to prove that there had once been water on Mars according to the sad Daily Mail story published to announce his recent death in a plane crash that happened on Friday in LA, California. While plane crashes do happen and scientists do die, Behar’s name has now been added to a very long list of scientists and astronomers who have met their untimely ends prematurely, leading us to ask, did Behar know something that ‘they’ don’t want the rest of society to find out?

Mark Ferri, 59, Nuclear engineer
A renowned American engineer was found dead in his hotel room in Salford after his heart suddenly stopped working. Mark Ferri, 59, from Tennessee, had completed two degrees in engineering as well as an MBA before becoming a nuclear engineer.
At an inquest into Mr Ferri’s death at Bolton Crown Court, it was heard that the dad-of-one was visiting Manchester on business on September 18 – the day of his death.
It was said Mr Ferri had been under stress from his job. His wife, Michaela, told the inquest: “He said a number of times, this job is killing me.” Mr Ferri was originally due to return to the US a week earlier to see his family but was asked to remain in the UK for an extra week.

Anne Szarewski, 53, pioneered the cervical cancer vaccine.
Mystery: Doctors are still at a loss to explain Dr Anne Szarewski’s death in her Hampstead home in August. Doctors are still at a loss to explain what exactly caused the brilliant researcher’s death. She was found with high levels of an anti-malarial drug in her bloodstream, but doctors said this was not thought to have caused her death. The scientist who pioneered the cervical cancer vaccine was found dead by her husband at their £2million home after he warned she was ‘heading for a crisis’ by working too hard. Dr Anne Szarewski, 53, a university lecturer whose discovery has saved thousands of lives, was begged to slow down by her husband, who was becoming increasingly concerned about the pressure she was putting on herself. In August he found her dead in their four-bedroom home in West Hampstead, north London, after he spent two hours drilling through a door she had locked from the inside. Dr Szarewski is credited with discovering the link between the human papillomavirus and cervical cancer, leading to a vaccine for HPV – the first-ever vaccine against any form of cancer – which is now routinely given to girls across the country.
Shane Todd, 31, Phd in electrical engineering with expertise with GaN (Gallium Nitride).
Mystery: Dr. Todd felt increasingly uncomfortable with the work he was doing with the Chinese company Huawei, to the point Shane told his family that he was being asked to compromise US security and he feared for his life. Shane was working on a “one of a kind” machine, with a dual use in commercial and in military application, requiring expertise in the area of GaN (Gallium Nitride). Shane refused to do what he was being asked to do and turned in his sixty day notice at IME. Shane found a good job with a company in Virginia, and bought a ticket to fly back to the US on July 1, 2012. Shane was killed late June 22nd, or 23rd, right after his last day of work.
Shane’s death was so unusual that CBS 48 Hours did a show on it.

Even those who you would think were immune to foul play are open game for those wanting to cover up secrets. If you recall this case of
John (Jack) P. Wheeler III, 66. last seen Dec. 30found dead in a Delaware landfill, fought to get the Vietnam Memorial built and served in two Bush administrations.

We might expect the headlines on Ebola and other such dangerous or mysterious disease’s to be the front page again soon. If nothing else the Police will give themselves a huge pat on the back by justifying their jobs towards neutralizing some imaginary terrorist attack on the nation.
