The Ochelli Effect 2-23-2021 Albert Lanier and JP Sottile
Sam Cooke Manhunter Values
Veteran Journalist Albert Lanier filled-in for Mike Swanson on the Tuesday Ochelli Effect. Albert talked about the enigmatic death and complicated life of music legend Sam Cooke.
The Motel Hacienda was a crime scene for the terrible end of the uniquely talented Sam Cooke. Is this a suspicious death? Is there a good reason to question the official story? His father was a minister, he was a genius born in Mississippi during a time when there was nearly nothing else but danger for the grandson of a slave in the south. He evolved into much more than his roots promised.
Mr. Lanier is also returning to his career as a journalist and we hope to hear more from him soon.
