    Chilling but reassuring information about how death occurred for one and possibly the rest.

    Santa Barbara Independant focusing on the death of Kristy Finstad. Based on post mortum results as revealed by her brother.

    Here is an in depth video by Ken Kurtis on the conception Fire filmed at a club day promoting the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber fund raiser. The chamber is a worthwhile cause deserving of support so I have left that section in.

    The presentation is quite well laid out and informative.
