COVER-UP COMPLETE? - LOCAL CORONER'S OFFICE
Alex Quiros was the perfect Air Force Academy cadet.
The Dean's List student was handsome, popular, in top physical condition and looking forward to graduation and becoming an officer in one month's time.
Why then would he commit suicide last April, by stabbing himself with a knife 28 separate times?
According to the autopsy report, the 21 year-old super-achiever suffered wounds to his neck, forehead, scalp, eyelid, chin, left leg, chest, and upper abdomen.
If a person is hell-bent on killing themselves, they don't do it that way, especially someone known for having "a low tolerance for pain," as Alex was.
COULD HE HAVE BEEN "TORTURED"
The type of stab wounds inflicted indicate Quiros was tortured by another person in his dorm room at the Colorado Springs military campus. But the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, which stayed silent about the strange death for weeks on end, now says "dark" entries found in an alleged diary indicate that Quiros was self-destructive.
El Paso County Coroner's Office forensic scientist Dr. Daniel Lingamfelter buys into that theory lock, stock and barrel.
"I'm certain he (Quiros) killed himself," the doc told the Colorado Springs GAZETTE. " . . Yeah, the injuries were self-inflicted."
He said the cadet's written journal "paints a picture of a perfectionist who internalized his feelings with no way of releasing them."
Bethany Martin strongly disagrees. She was Alex's longtime girlfriend and spoke with Quiros on the telephone just an hour before he died.
She said Alex was in good spirits despite discomfort from having some teeth pulled in a dental procedure that morning. "He was upbeat. We talked for quite a while, and then he told me he had to get ready to go to a class. Alex promised to call me back at 1500 hours." That call never came.
NO REASON TO TAKE HIS OWN LIFE
MilitaryCorruption.com investigators tell us that Quiros was especially close to his mother Ksenia, and would never do anything to harm his loved ones. The 45 year-old mom took her son's death especially hard and committed a real suicide (pills, exposure to the cold and snow), when she drove up into the hills over-looking the AFA.
There are many questions that remain unanswered, and we urge Alex's grieving father Jose to be sure and put them to the OSI before the book on this case is closed forever.
Why didn't Quiros give the slightest indication just prior to his death that he was "suicidal?"
WHAT ABOUT FINGERPRINTS ON THE KNIFE HANDLE?
Why did Alex makes plans for the future and tell his girlfriend he'd be calling her back in one hour? Was there a female cadet in his life who knew about his low pain tolerance, who didn't want to lose him to another woman, and figured if she couldn't have him, no one else would? Twenty-eight stab wounds, and the variety of them, indicate a sadistic pattern of punishment or revenge that a spurned lover might have cruelly inflicted.
Where did the knife come from, and were the victim's bloody fingerprints lifted from the handle? If not, why not?
We urge Jose Quiros to insist that the OSI show him his son's journal entries to see if it is written in the young man's hand.
There are just too many loose ends in this shocking incident for anyone to sheep-like buy into the "official story."
