Courtney Love Solves Malaysia Airlines Mystery?
An open source satellite imagery map called Tomnod was set up during the hunt for the plane that anyone can view. After zooming around a bit on that, amateur sleuth Love took a screen shot, marked it up in what appears to be MS Paint, and posted it to her Facebook page.
“I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick. Prayers go out to the families #MH370 and its [sic] like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they ‘last’ tracked it 5°39’08.5″N 98°50’38.0″E but what do I know?”
Looks like investigators from multiple countries may have missed this oil slick and plane silhouette in the picture. Now everyone can get some closure.
Meanwhile, in Love’s personal life, it looks like she’s been sued by her shrink. One Edwin Ratush claims that Love owes him over $48,000 in back payments and sued last month for breach of contract.
Love has long been a firebrand for controversy, feuding publicly with the likes of Nirvana, Dave Grohl, and anyone who posits a theory about the death of Kurt Cobain.
Media watchers will not soon forget Love’s head-over-heels/ass-over-teakettle appearance outside the MTV Video Music Awards in 1995 when a very drunk Love approached Kurt Loder and Madonna, interrupting an interview, and wound up falling off a stool. Such appearances ended up being par for the course for Love for a portion of her career.
