War Art: Bin Laden Hunter Gary Faulkner Receives ‘Vision’ Painting

    This is pretty ‘cool’. lol  Jerry Cool painted this thing after a dream, and years later felt that the painting he put together was of Gary Faulkner and his quest to find Bin Laden. That is just wild.

     In other news about Gary, it sounds like Al Qaeda and company has put a bounty out on him. I haven’t been able to really confirm that, but it makes sense that they would. I say that because the Taliban and Al Qaeda already have a bounty system going on for any soldiers they can kill or capture. –Matt

Bin Laden hunter receives painting

July 21, 2010

Gary Faulkner, the Greeley man who was detained in Pakistan last month while on a mission to hunt down Osama bin Laden, sits Tuesday in front of a painting called “A Renaissance Dream of 9-11: The Killing of Osama bin Laden” at the home of artist Jerry Cool in Muncie, Ind.

MUNCIE, Ind. – An Indiana man who says he dreamed two years ago of a bearded man slaying Osama bin Laden has given a painting of the dramatic scene to a Colorado man arrested in Pakistan while hunting for the al-Qaida leader.

Jerry Cool, 63, told The Star Press of Muncie that he was “shocked” when he saw Gary Faulkner talking on CBS’s “Late Show With David Letterman” on June 28 about his arrest in northern Pakistan earlier that month.

“Once I saw Gary on TV, I knew that was him in my vision,” Cool told the newspaper. “To me, he’s the only one that deserves that painting.”

Crime: DB Cooper, Eat Your Heart Out–Parachuting Criminal in Alabama

     What a desperate crook and this guy owes a lot of money for his crimes.  To me, the interesting part about finding this guy is the man hunt aspect. The one hit against Schrenker right now, is that everyone knows what he looks like and what he did.  He is very visible and left a lot of tracks, unlike DB Cooper.  I suspect that this guy will be caught pretty soon, but still, this is one for the books. –Matt

Edit:  And he is caught.  He tried to commit suicide as well.

Missing Ind. pilot may have fled on red motorbike

HARPERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — The search for an Indiana businessman who may have tried to fake his own death in a plane crash to escape financial problems took another cinematic turn Tuesday when investigators said he jetted away on a red motorcycle.

After searching the Alabama woods where Marcus Schrenker, 38, apparently bailed out of his small plane before letting it coast on autopilot to crash in Florida, investigators discovered that he’d stashed a red motorcycle inside a storage unit a day before the crash. The bike is gone, and his clothes were left behind.

“He could be anywhere at all. Within 10 hours he could be in New Orleans, halfway to Houston, in Atlanta, anywhere,” said Huntsville Police Chief David Latimer.
