Letter to "This American Life" radio show
This one is as serious as it gets, and represents the ultimate test of your journalistic independence and commitment to the social good.
It is the story of Sunny Sheu, a dear friend of mine and a genuine hero who was murdered less than two months ago.
As you will see and hear, Sunny predicted his own death on a Youtube video, named his potential murderers, and asked the FBI for witness protection. Whether or not Sunny was murdered by those he claimed had threatened his life, or by a random murderer, there can be no question that a massive cover up is being perpetrated by the NYPD, and possibly the New York FBI.
I was the last friend of Sunny to see him alive, and the first to see him dead, at the New York Hospital, Queens, on June 26th, 2010. I have hours of sound recordings of Sunny's conversation, his contact with government agencies, his premonition of his death, his announcement of evidence against a NY Supreme Court Judge three days before his murder.
I also have video and audio recordings of my going to the hospital and finding him dead, discussions with the Doctors re cause of death, phone conversations with the Medical Examiner, the NYPD 109th precinct, and the FBI. As you will see, the Medical examiner outright contradicts the Police account of the cause of death, ruling it "undetermined" as opposed to "Natural". That a cover up is underway is undeniable. I beg you to confirm all of my evidence by calling these sources yourself.
The New York Post interviewed me for hours about the story, took copies of all my sound and video evidence and promised to publish it on Monday August 9th. It never ran, and the reporter, Billy Gorta has refused to answer my phone calls asking why.
ABC news and several other local, national and international media are investigating this story. I have listened to your show for years, and feel that this would be an extraordinary use for your format, as much of the story can be told in Sunny's own voice. It is an immensely touching story, as well as an urgent one.
The enclosed press release gives an outline of the story. It links to four edited videos on Youtube that reveal crucial facts, but there are hours more pertinent material.
I will add that all of this material has been diligently copied and sent to friends and colleagues around the world.
WNYC does not cover the issue of judicial corruption in New York State. I hope and trust that your program has enough independence and integrity to do the right thing.
