Even after Jimmy Savile’s passing, footage from his burial continues to make people’s “skin crawl.”
Here is some footage from the occasion:
With the premiere of The Reckoning, starring Steve Coogan as the predatory TV host and comedian, Savile has returned to the forefront of media attention.
The documentary, which was largely influenced by some of Savile’s victims, tells a partially-fictionalized story of Savile’s life and decades-long campaign of abuse.
For many, the fact that he was never brought to justice during his lifetime is a major cause of regret and resentment.
The fact that Savile appeared to have been showing off his crimes to everyone and even trying to push the limits of what he could get away with only served to exacerbate this, according to a reevaluation.
In the end, he passed away in 2011 at the age of 84, before his crimes were fully investigated.
Towards the beginning of The Reckoning, there is footage of Savile’s funeral in Leeds. Looking back, the star-studded event, which was attended by many from the entertainment industry, seems ominous.
Savile asked to be buried at a 45-degree angle at Scarborough and in a golden coffin so that he could “see the sea.”
Perhaps even more sinister is the request that concrete be poured around his tomb, which was stated to be done so due to “security concerns” at the time.
It’s only a guess, but there might have been another factor at work.
His grave is still unmarked even though his gravestone was later taken down.
Those who witnessed his funeral at the beginning of The Reckoning are aware of the actual nature of his actions and the hundreds of adults and children he mistreated over the course of several decades.
“That footage of Jimmy Savile’s funeral in the first few minutes of #TheReckoning is skin-crawlingly awful knowing what we do now,” said one person.
Thousands of people lined the streets of Leeds and Scarborough when Savile passed away to show their respect for a man they must have assumed was just an oddball charity fundraiser and radio and TV broadcaster.
The truth didn’t come to light until much later, and for many, this new series will finally reveal the true nature of this man.
He was a depraved, dark man capable of the unimaginable, despite his public popularity and charity endeavours.
You can currently watch The Reckoning on BBC iPlayer.
People Are Apparently Trying To Free A Murderer Because He’s ‘Too Cute’
Social media users are seemingly rallying around a TikTok user who killed a mother and child, arguing he deserves a lesser prison sentence because he’s ‘too cute’.
Cameron Herrin was sentenced in April 2021 to 24 years in prison, six years short of the maximum of 30, after pleading guilty to killing Jessica Raubenolt and her 20-month-old daughter Lillia by hitting them with his Ford Mustang while racing the car against another vehicle in Tampa, Florida in 2018.
Following the sentencing, numerous social media accounts began sharing posts including the words ‘justice for Cameron’ on the Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages of the 13th Circuit Court, Hillsborough County state attorney Andrew Warren and the Florida Department of Corrections, while on TikTok many users called for a shorter sentencing for Herrin, though many of these posts may not be from real people.
According to The Tampa Bay Times, there has been discussion about whether many of these postings were made by bots because they resemble paid influence efforts that use phoney accounts. However, several people have made an effort to refute this hypothesis by stating that they are human in their posts.
Hannah Kosh, a TikToker, read aloud some of the comments on Herrin’s sentencing as she spoke about the support system for him. One of the comments said, “Poor guy, I hope they will forgive him.” He appears to be innocent; he wasn’t intending to do anything.
You’re too cute, I fell in love with a criminal, said another person.
Parents No Longer Talking To Daughter After ‘Son Who’s Been Dead For Six Months’ Rings Them Up
A set of parents, whose son made a surprising call after allegedly being “dead for six months,” are now estranged from their daughters in a bizarre and tumultuous family saga. Brace yourselves for a jaw-dropping story that goes beyond the realm of the ordinary.
The protagonist in this astonishing tale is Callum, a New Zealander, who made waves with his jaw-dropping revelation on ZM Radio in 2021, unveiling a family narrative that defies all expectations.
The narrative’s origins lay in a seemingly innocuous radio segment, where ZM Radio invited listeners to share instances where they were mistakenly presumed dead. Amid the sea of stories, Callum’s account left the show’s hosts, Carl Fletcher, Vaughan Smith, and Megan Papas, utterly astounded.
Callum recounted, “Yes, I definitely have been presumed dead, mate.” He revealed the shocking tale of family turmoil and deception, which unfolded as his sisters were embroiled in a heated dispute with his parents.
As the story goes, Callum was residing in Wellington while his family was based in Christchurch, and during this period of familial discord, his older sister took a drastic and shocking step. She called their parents and informed them that Callum had met a grim fate, alleging that he had been brutally stabbed to death.
Vaughan, one of the incredulous hosts, interjected, “Wait wait wait, you were murdered? You’re not dead in an accident by your own hand, someone murdered you! This is the wildest phone call we’ve ever had. Were you the sort of person who would have been stabbed?” Callum’s response only added more layers to the surreal tale, “I was not in some gangs, but I will say, at the point in time, it wouldn’t have been un-peculiar for me to get stabbed.”
The bewildering revelation left the radio hosts flabbergasted. Callum further elaborated on his decision to reach out to his parents, stating, “And then I was like wait – I haven’t heard from my parents in a while, I wonder what’s going on? And I gave them a call-up and my mum and dad are like ‘you’re alive?’ My mum was absolutely in tears, and my dad was just kind of gobsmacked – he was just like ‘what the heck is going on?'”
Vaughan couldn’t help but chime in, expressing his bewilderment, “What! I’m going to say this in the nicest possible way, Callum… your sister sounds like a crazy person. No offense. Your sister sounds like a top-level, red flag, crazy person!”
To compound the incredulity, Callum revealed that his sisters informed his parents that a funeral had already taken place, one to which they had not been invited. The alleged reason? His ex-girlfriend’s parents purportedly did not want them there.
The conclusion of this mind-boggling episode was that Callum’s parents severed ties with his sisters. It’s an outcome that leaves many pondering whether such an outcome was inevitable, given the astonishing and unsettling turn of events. This bewildering saga serves as a stark reminder that truth can indeed be stranger than fiction, and family dynamics can take astonishing twists and turns.
