When I was a reporter in Philly, the Ira Einhorn extradition story was huge. When I started I remember looking into the database of archived stories and being shocked that Einhorn was pretty much THE go-to guy for quotes about anything environmental or hippie. At least he was until the po-po found his girlfriend stuffed into his trunk like an old blanket. Then not so much.
Funny how the environmentalists don't celebrate the founder of Earth Day so much, huh?
It makes sense though. But in thinking about it, you've got to give credit to the radical abortionists who still celebrate the work of racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger. They just pretend those facts don't exist while still hailing her as a great woman. They just deny reality. "What racism?"
Maybe in the future, environmentalists will just say, "What trunk?"
Here's everything you need to know about the founder of Earth Day from The Daily Caller:
The self-described founder of a Earth Day is a convicted murderer.Dude's not just crunchy. He's nuts.
Despite helping to found the environmental movement’s most important day of the year, environmental activist and self-proclaimed co-founder Earth Day Ira Einhorn had a dark side. NBC News recalls that Einhorn was found guilty of murdering his ex-girlfriend and stuffing her “composted” body inside a trunk.
After his girlfriend of five years, Helen “Holly” Maddux, broke up with him, Einhorn threatened to throw her belongings onto the street is she didn’t pick them up. She went to Einhorn’s apartment to retrieve them on Sept. 9, 1977 but was never seen again.
Several weeks later, Einhorn told police that she went missing after going out to the neighborhood co-op to buy tofu and sprouts. 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,” reports NBC News.
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. Finally he was caught and extradited to the U.S. from France, where he was put on trial and convicted of murder. He is currently serving a life sentence.
NBC News notes: “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.”
