Indianapolis police are investigating the death of a prominent political commentator as a suicide, IMPD captain Richard Riddle confirmed Sunday.
Gary Welsh’s last post in his Advance Indiana blog on Friday now seems ominous. “If I’m not around to see the vote results,” Welsh wrote, “my prediction is that Trump wins Indiana with just shy of 50% of the vote.”
Police were called to an apartment building in the 400 block of North Park Ave. shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday on a report of a person shot. “Police dispatch stated that the caller observed what they believed to be a person shot in the stairwell of the building with the gun still laying on the scene,” the police report said. “Person shot was confirmed and victim was pronounced deceased at the scene by medics.”
Welsh, 53, was a lawyer and had been blogging since 2005. A conservative, he explained his motivation in a 2007 post: “I began this blog seventeen months ago as a way of communicating my discontent with the political state of affairs in Indiana and, in particular, the domination of our state by the religious right and its endless efforts to discriminate against persons it disfavors.”
After Welsh posted his message on Friday, several readers expressed concern.
“Btw, Gary, should we read any foreboding in your words about ‘if you are around for the election results.’ Take care of yourself, please,” wrote Marycatherine Barton.
Anonymous responded: “Mary Catherine – thank you for posting the question re: Gary’s safety. I was thinking the same thing and thought I had posted it. Gary???”
Welsh’s body was taken to the Marion County Coroner’s Office, where an autopsy is expected to be performed Monday.
Voting-fraud activist Gary Welsh, who tipped off Infowars’ Wayne Madsen on Marco Rubio’s foam sex parties, was found dead leading up to the Indiana primary.
Police found Welsh’s body in an apartment complex stairwell in Indianapolis, Ind., on May 1 and quickly ruled it a “suicide.”
“Welsh was a well-known lawyer and political commentator in Indiana who combated against the takeover of the state by religious fundamentalists and opposed ‘well-connected’ GOP presidential candidates like Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, and Rubio,” Wayne Madsen reported. “The timing of Welsh’s death just prior to the Indiana GOP primary, one that Cruz hopes to win to keep his chances for the GOP presidential nomination alive, is troubling, to say the least.”
“Welsh was a well-known advocate for election integrity and he supported Donald Trump for the GOP nomination.”
He published the blog Advance Indiana which heavily reported on voting fraud in the state.
A strange message was posted to Welsh’s blog prior to his death stating “if I’m not around to see the vote results, my prediction is that Trump wins Indiana with just shy of 50% of the vote.”
Welsh was also one of the insiders who told Madsen about the “foam parties” Rubio reportedly attended during the early-to-mid 1990s at gay entertainment venues in South Florida.
“At ‘Amnesia,’ emcee ‘Kitty Meow,’ a drag queen, would officiate over the foam parties, directing participants what to do,” Madsen reported. “Some foam party participants only wore jock straps.”
“It is entirely possible that Rubio did meet his future wife at a foam party, but the women who attended these functions were largely what are known as ‘fag hags’ out to have a good time while at the same time avoid being hit on by the gay men.”
