BEACHWOOD, Ohio — The wife of a man found hanging in a tree in Beachwood said she knows her husband committed suicide.
Lennin Johan Torres-Sepulveda, 38, of Atlanta took a picture of himself with a noose around his neck and sent it to his wife right before he hanged himself, the widow Patricia Lane said in an interview with cleveland.com.
Lane said she is outraged that pictures of her husband’s dead body are circulating online, and organizations and news outlets across the country are calling it a lynching.
“I just came from my husband’s funeral,” Lane said Thursday. “He looked like he was sleeping. I want to remember him that way. I want those pictures of him hanging from that tree taken down.”
A woman on Facebook said she took the picture, calling it “awareness.”
“Try riding in a car and having to explain to your kids what they just saw,” the woman wrote. “It’s truth and the harsh world we live in.”
The woman took the picture sometime before officers arrived, and she never called police, Beachwood police Chief Keith Winebrenner said.
Torres-Sepulveda was a performer with the Universoul Circus. The circus scheduled shows from May 17 though Monday at the Southgate Shopping Center in Maple Heights.
Torres-Sepulveda had worked with the circus for 12 years, circus spokesman Hank Ernest said. Circus performers were staying at a hotel across the street from the area where the body was found about 8 p.m. last Friday.
A couple driving by saw the body and called police.
“We are deeply saddened by what happened.” Ernest said. “It was the saddest day, and something that we are trying to get over.”
Torres-Sepulveda’s body was found hanging from a tree in a wooded area near Auburn Drive north of University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center. The patch of trees is surrounded by two plazas that are home to Life Time Fitness, Aloft and a restaurant, as well as Penske, and a large office building with windows facing the trees.
There was no evidence on the body to indicate any type of struggle, such as bruising, torn clothing, scrapes, scratches, or defensive wounds, Winebrenner said.
Torres-Sepulveda may have been dealing with issues, but he was kind and caring, Lane said. He was always laughing, and helped everyone in need.

He could breathe after the incident but his body became lifeless and weak.
Claim: A 600-pound Australian woman gave birth to a 40-pound baby.
Example: [Collected via e-mail, January 2015]I don’t believe this at all. A 600lb woman couldn’t carry to term, if at all. And the surgeon doing to cesarean would’ve KNOWN it was not multiples because he would’ve been the OBGYN seeing her throughout the pregnancy. People are believing it. Fact, or satire?
Origins: On 14 January 2015, World News Daily Report published an article titled “Australia: 600 PoundWoman Gives Birth to 40 Pound Baby.” (The claim resurfaced when it was reproduced by the generally satirical site NYMeta on 4 June 2015.)
According to the original claim, an unnamed “single mother” in Australia weighing 600 lbs. gave birth to what was possibly the largest baby in recorded history:

Don’t Be a Puppet: Pull Back the Curtain on Violent Extremism
More and more, violent extremists are trying to radicalize and recruit our nation’s youth, especially through the Internet and social media.
It’s the FBI’s primary responsibility—working with its many partners—to protect the nation from attacks by violent extremists. One important way to do that is to keep young people—the future of our country—from embracing violent extremist ideologies in the first place.
This website is designed to help do just that. Built by the FBI in consultation with community leaders and other partners, it uses a series of interactive materials to educate teens on the destructive nature of violent extremism and to encourage them to think critically about its messages and goals.
The site emphasizes that by blindly accepting radical ideologies, teens are essentially becoming the “puppets” of violent extremists who simply want them to carry out their destructive mission—which often includes targeting or killing innocent people.
The FBI encourages community groups, families, and high schools across the United States to use this site as part of their educational efforts. All Americans are asked to join the FBI in exposing the seductive nature of violent extremist propaganda and offering positive alternatives to violence.Enter the Website
Okay, who did it? Turn on the water taps and a nasty black sludge pours out in spinach capitol Crystal City, Texas, which is southwest of San Antonio and approaching the Mexico border. First, Flint, Michigan received poisoned water, and now this. What makes this crime suspicious, and as far as I am concerned, corrupting a water supply is a crime, is that the FBI arrested all but one of the city’s officials just days before.
Crystal City’s council members are under federal indictment. The FBI arrested five top officials under a federal indictment and charged them with taking bribes in the amount of tens of thousands of dollars and helping operate an illegal gambling operation.
Three of the council members have been recalled, and the FBI’s spectacular arrest came at the end of Tuesday’s council meeting, when members of the FBI took mayor Ricardo Lopez into custody. After officials released him from jail on Thursday, the mayor said he had no plans regarding the City Council.
Wednesday night, residents of Crystal City took their dilemma to social media, sharing photos of the oily substance pouring out of their taps. According to remaining city officials, the water problem was just the result of flushing sediment out of the city’s water tower when they drained it for repairs.
Thursday morning, the city finally posted an explanation on its Facebook page, suggesting people boil the water before drinking it, but even so, they would be stuck with a foul cocktail. Water/Wastewater Superintendent Carlos Ramirez indicated that it had been 20 or 30 years, since the tower had been cleaned.
Resident Nora Flores-Guerrero said that her water smelled, but it did not look like sludge:
‘We didn’t get a proper warning They didn’t post anything or send out any type of message to warn the residents. It was pretty scary.’
‘It looked like black sludge. They were comparing it to oil — that dark.’
Reporters questioned Ramirez about why the city didn’t notify residents prior to the tower cleaning. He said none of them realized that the sediment would get into the lines distributing the water. Ramirez said the water should be back to normal soon.

(NaturalHealth365) Let me ask you, do you haveamalgam dental fillings? Do you use a cell phone? If you do, then beware, the latest research shows that you may be particularly at risk.
There’s a considerable amount of research pointing to the dangers of radio frequency electromagnetic field exposures from cell phones. There is also significant research which points to the adverse biological consequences of mercury in amalgams. But what is not so well known is that research is now pointing to a link between the two.
EMFs can cause a significant increase in the release of mercury into the body
Studies are now showing that EMF exposures can cause significant increases in the release of mercury into the body of those with amalgam dental fillings – especially due to cell phone radiation. But, the source of these EMF exposures are not necessarily just from cell phones, these EMFs may come from computer monitors, WiFi, televisions, microwave ovens and other appliances.
Editor’s note: 80% of disease symptoms are caused by problems in the mouth, and millions are exposed to disease-promoting dental procedures every day. Find out how to properly remove mercury-based ‘silver’ fillings plus much more.
In most people who have amalgam fillings it is their fillings that have been documented to be the largest source of mercury in their body. This is a concern because mercury is known to be a potent neurotoxin capable of causing these devastating immune and neurological conditions. Even more worrying is that often the level of mercury exposures is above government health guidelines.
The nervous, immune and cardiovascular systems seem to suffer the most adverse effects of chronic mercury exposure
According to Dr. Russell Blaylock, the nervous, immune and cardiovascular systems seem to suffer the most adverse effects of chronic mercury exposure. He also points to the growing evidence that mercury toxicity plays a vital role in a significant number of Alzheimer’s cases along with other neurodegenerative diseases.
Research from a number of prominent medical schools shows that mercury vapor continuously escapes from a dental amalgam and 80 percent of this vapor is immediately absorbed through the lungs and into the bloodstream. Once in the blood, mercury vapor can enter into the cells almost immediately.
Not just vapor effects – this deadly EMF-mercury combo also creates electrical disturbances in the mouth
Another way this deadly EMF-mercury combo is known to work is through galvanism. Amalgam dental fillings produce electrical currents which increase mercury vapor release and may have other harmful effects. These currents are measured in micro amps, with some measured at over 5 micro amps.
Clinical studies on oral galvanism have found that currents over 5 micro amps can cause significant health problems including headaches, migraines, dizziness and nausea. These health symptoms were eliminated when amalgam fillings were replaced.
EMF exposures linked to a string of toxic and allergic reactions
Another clinical study found that electrical potential differences of over 50 millivolts were pathological, causing a number of issues including galvanism, leukoplakia, oral lichen planus, or toxic or allergic reactions to restorations.
Several studies have also found persons with chronic exposure to EMFs including microwaves, or MRI scan exposures have higher levels of mercury and higher levels of mercury excretion. A 2008 study found that subsequent to having an MRI, saliva mercury levels for patients was on average 31% higher after having had MRI than before. EMFs are known to induce current in metals and would increase the effects of galvanism.
In animal and human studies EMFs have been found to cause cellular calcium efflux and affect calcium homeostasis, this is thought to be a factor in the reduction of melatonin levels caused by EMF exposures. This is important because melatonin is known to be protective against mercury and free radical activity, as well as regulating the circadian rhythm.
Tips on how to protect yourself from EMF exposures:
1. Avoid using a cell phone, if you do use one practice safe cell phone use.
2. Avoid Wi-Fi and other wireless networks – especially in the home.
3. Replace cordless phones with corded versions.
4. Avoid using laptops and similar devices on your lap.
5. Move your bed 6 inches away from the wall and any potential wiring EMF issues.
An excellent way of understanding your EMF exposures is to equip yourself with an EMF meter like the Trifield 100XE – so that you can identify hotspots and take remedial action.
Virginia parents were in an uproar after officials at Glen Allen High School in Henrico showed students a controversial video as part of Black History Month.
The video, titled “Structural Discrimination: The Unequal Opportunity Race,” covers issues like racial profiling, manifest destiny and the “school to prison pipeline.” This animation was commissioned by the African American Policy Forum.
“Dr. King gave his life so that America would be a place where we are judged by the content of our character not the color of our skin,” radio personality Craig Johnson told WWBT-TV.
“Now we have poverty pimps being led by our current president Barack Obama who all they talk about is the color of skin.” The video depicts four individuals of different ethnicities running a race.
While two white individuals run the course, the other individuals are faced with road blocks like a pool of sharks and a police checkpoint.
It ends with the statement: “Affirmative action helps level the playing field.”
One parent wrote a letter expressing concern that the video was causing tensions within the school.
“Y’all are privileged. Get the – blank – over it,” read one of numerous tweets about the topic, according to that same parent.
Other relatives of students had a different view. “They are sitting there watching a video that is dividing them up from a racial standpoint.
It’s a white guilt kind of video,” Don Blake, whose granddaughter attended the assembly, said. “I think somebody should be held accountable for this.”
Here is the video shown at two assemblies by Dr. Gwen Miller the Principle :
