A pilot who wrote a conspiracy theory book about 9/11 is dead after he shot his two teenage children and family dog before turning the gun on himself.
Relatives and friends of Phillip Marshall were stunned by the violent crime which took place in Calaveras County on Saturday.
Their bodies were discovered when friends of the teens went to the family home on Sandalwood Drive and looked through the windows, they could see 54-year-old Phillip Marshall lying on the floor in a pool of blood.
The former airline pilot's controversial conspiracy book The Big Bamboozle: 9/11 and the War on Terror was released last year.
While he was writing it, Marshall believed that his life was in danger because of the allegations involved.
According to Santa Barbara View, during the editing and pre-marketing process of Marshall’s book, he expressed some degree of paranoia because the nonfiction work accused the George W. Bush administration of being in cahoots with the Saudi intelligence community in training the hijackers who died in the planes used in the attacks.
Was Phillip Marshall murdered for what he wrote in his book? This possibility raises an important question for anyone covering this story, and that question is, "Will I be murdered for writing this?". In light of that, I would just like to say for the record, I will never harm myself or my family, under any circumstances. Should anything like that happen, you can be certain that I was in fact murdered.
Phillip Marshall was interviewed on Coast To Coast AM on 9-08-12.
