Murder in Paradise: Family Invokes Renown Private Investigator TJ Ward to Solve the Case of Casey Scott MacPherson

Pronounced dead December 30, 2018 on UK’s idyllic Island Harbor, Anguilla, actor/producer Casey Scott MacPherson, 37, had succumb to a fatal dose of MDA.

FRESNO, CA, US, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “It doesn’t matter how famous you are,” quips T.J. Ward, the private investigator who has followed leads on The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway since 2005, “when a murder takes place on an island outside of the jurisdiction of the U.S., and tourism is at stake, no local authority will search for a perpetrator. It’s bad for business.” Pronounced dead December 30, 2018 on UK’s idyllic Island Harbor, Anguilla, actor and producer Casey Scott MacPherson and childhood friend Caleb Guillory, both 37, succumb to a fatal dose psychostimulant MDA (more commonly seen in its derivative form, MDMA, or “ecstasy”).

Known for The Perfect House (2013), The Bold and the Beautiful (2015) and The Hotel Barclay (2013), MacPherson and his wife, Barbara, packed up and left Fresno, California in 2018 for the Caribbean Island of Anguilla, where Casey could fulfill his lifelong dream to study medicine. Childhood friends Caleb Guillory and Chuck Gross, along with their wives, came to visit during Casey’s medical school winter break. As the six walked from the beach following dinner and drinks, Casey and Caleb became tragically ill; they were by ambulance to Princess Alexandra Hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.

Family friend, Kara Schacher, received a call from Barbara and booked a flight to the island to help them. She found the four survivors of the group locked in separate cells, lacking food and water, or any assistance or contact with the U.S. Consulate. In order to secure their release, the return of their passports, and the bodies of Casey and Caleb, they had agreed to accept a formal apology by the Island Commissioner for the “tragic accident.” The bodies were taken to the neighboring Island of St. Martins and cremated. Only then, the questions began.

According to Casey's father, Fresno radio producer Charlie MacPherson, “This wasn’t simply an accident. Casey was poisoned.” Moreover, the story of what happened that fatal evening kept changing. When Charlie found out that Casey’s life insurance was significantly increased prior to his move to Anguilla, the family contacted the U.S. State Department suspecting foul play, but documents were scarce, and his immediate family was not considered “next-of-kin.” Curious, Charlie asked, “What if the closest next-of-kin is the person who had the most to gain from Casey’s death?” The State Department refused to answer or take any further questions from MacPherson.

Charlie had been following the casework of private investigator T.J. Ward, who faced similar issues in Aruba after 18 year-old Alabama teen Natalee Holloway was drugged by a bartender at the request Joran Van der Sloot, a local Judge’s son – and godson of the Dutch island’s chief of police; the basis of a 2017 six-part series on NBC’s Oxygen Network, the location of Natalee’s body remains a mystery. According to Ward, “Nothing adds up about the deaths of Casey and Caleb. It’s quite clear the Royal Anguilla Police’s first priority was simply to make the deaths go away.”

Ward and his team of experts plan to return to the island to investigate, tasked with the duties not carried out by the island’s government or law enforcement, and outside the traditional reach of United States authorities. “These operations can be very dangerous, but there can be no closure until we bring to light why Casey and Caleb were killed.” A GoFundMe Campaign has been set up by the MacPherson family and friends. All funds will go toward the costs of the investigation. “We will be documenting our journey and investigation,” adds Ward, “and expect this case to be solved.”

T.J. Ward is President and CEO of T.J. Ward and Associates, an Atlanta-based international investigative agency solving high-profile cases for more than 35 years. To contact T.J. Ward directly with information on this case, call 404.932.4016 or Contact Us anonymously through TJWardPI.com. For media and television inquiries, contact Sharon Beck at 347.352.5332.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center Encourages Navy Veterans to Call for Access to Attorneys at The Steinberg Law Group

Navy Pipe Welder

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center is Here for Veterans

The Steinberg Law Group Has the Experiences, Resources and Results to Obtain the Maximum Financial Compensation Possible

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center Encourages Navy Veterans Suffering from Mesothelioma to Call for Access to Experienced Attorneys at The Steinberg Law Group

I said, ‘Mr. Brown, do you mean to tell me you would let them work until they dropped dead?’ He said, ‘Yes. We save a lot of money that way.'”

— Charles H. Roemer, former Johns Manville employee speaking with the CEO

HOUSTON, TX, USA, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to Navy veterans stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with a member of The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps obtain the best possible financial compensation for clients.

From the 1930s to the 1970s, the Navy used massive quantities of asbestos insulation and fireproofing products in ships and submarines. Often, the worst asbestos exposure conditions in the military occurred on Navy ships and shipyards. To make matters worse, shipyard workers regularly returned home covered in asbestos dust, causing secondary asbestos exposure among loved ones.

Navy occupations with the highest risk of exposure include boiler technician, machinist’s mate, fireman, pipe fitter and fire control technician. Some Navy veterans even wore equipment made of asbestos cloth such as heat-resistant gloves for manning gun turrets. Exposure to asbestos took place at naval facilities and bases in states such as Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Virginia, Maine, Connecticut, California, Washington, Maryland, South Carolina and Hawaii. Even if the asbestos exposure occurred outside of a Navy vet’s home state, The Steinberg Law Group can still get the best financial compensation possible.

For the best possible medical treatment for mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer, call (888) 891-2200 so a member of our team can determine which hospitals and doctors in our vast national network are most convenient for victims of asbestos exposure.

States with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Alaska, New Jersey, Washington, Maine, North Dakota, California, Nevada, Montana, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. For more information about mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer in your area, visit mesotheliomaoptions.com or call (888) 891-2200 now.

Oscar Winner Nicolas Cage has a Hot Young Son You Need to See to Believe

Weston Cage Coppola

Filmmakers claim Weston Cage Coppola is on par with his A-List father, after a breakout leading role and getting snagged by entertainment mogul Chuck Binder

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since his breakout leading role in D-Day, Weston Cage Coppola is now represented by the entertainment powerhouse, Chuck Binder. Binder has represented several veteran actors; Sharon Stone, Brooke Shields, Benjamin Bratt, John Lovitz, Daryl Hannah, Jamie Lee Curtis and many more.

Weston has been busy this year with multiple projects in post including his leading role in “D-Day” (Directed by Nick Lyon), co-starring his best friend Jesse Kove, and UFC Legends, Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture, “Freak Power Battle For Aspen” (rumored to be a prequel of Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, Directed by Bobby Kennedy III), Starf*cker (directed by Mark David) and is scheduled to film MR-9 with Mickey Rourke in Africa in September 2019. He is also the first Cage/Coppola to venture from film to television with his appearance in NCIS: Los Angeles alongside LL Cool J. As of 2019, NCIS is second-longest-running scripted prime time TV series airing.

Weston comes from a long line of actors and filmmakers, Actor/Father Nicolas Cage, Actress/Mother Christina Fulton, Uncle Francis Ford Coppola, Aunt Talia Shire, Gia Coppola, Sofia Coppola, Robert Schwartzman, Jason Schwartzman, Anton Coppola, and music composer of the Godfather’s Carmine Coppola. Exploring a martial arts career in his teens, earning 3 black-belts, and then a music career as a young adult he is now officially carrying the film-making torch.

Weston has previously been portrayed in the media as a kind of “bad boy” type, and now he’s taking on leading roles. His emergence into more mainstream film, television and music is indicative of this dramatic change. We think it has something to do with his stunning new bride. Weston married Hila Cage Coppola, his girlfriend of two years in 2018 after he converted to Judaism. The adorable couple work and travel together for productions.

Weston’s performance in the WW2 film D-Day has been met with praise from the filmmakers; “Weston Cage Coppola became James Earl Rudder, his performance was transformative and it was amazing to observe," states Nick Lyon, director of D-Day, "he became a true leader, so charismatic that he could even call older actors “son” convincingly. From voice to posture, to overall presence, he was a different man. It’s very rare that I get to work with an actor who takes a role to the next level. He gives more than what I asked for. He gave me what I wanted. Somehow he channeled the ghost of James Earl Rudder. It was amazing to watch him take the performance to the next level. It’s rare to see an actor become their subject, and Weston possesses this ability.”

Reviews:
“The Asylum has delivered a dramatic, action-packed WWII movie anchored by a strong leading performance from Weston Cage Coppola” -Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions.

"I am a big fan of the work Weston Cage Coppola did in this film, the movie sits on his shoulders." -David Rimawi, Co-Founder of The Asylum.

"Weston Cage Coppola has a breakout leading role in D-Day. Surrounded by a top notch cast, he stands out and continues the family dynasty with his performance." -David Latt, Co-founder of The Asylum and producer of D-Day

Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival announces its 2020 season lineup: Love, Wit, Warfare & More

Our 31st Season is designed to entertain and inspire live theatre lovers of all kinds. It offers tempting choices for one and all.”

— Christopher Gaze, Bard on the Beach Artistic Director

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — While the 30th season of Bard on the Beach continues until September 21, Artistic Director Christopher Gaze has just announced the lineup for the Festival’s 31st Season, which will run from June 11 to September 26, 2020. It includes the most popular play in Bard’s history, plus a thrilling historical drama, a music-filled Jazz Age romance and a provocative contemporary play based on Milton’s Paradise Lost.

On the BMO Mainstage, the beloved comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which has delighted audiences around the world and across the ages, plays in repertory with Shakespeare’s epic historical tale, Henry V. The Howard Family Stage offers two contrasting productions: Love’s Labour’s Lost, a restaging of Bard’s 2015 hit Jazz Age production, alternating with Paradise Lost, a critically acclaimed modern take on the battle between good and evil. Says Gaze: “Our 31st Season is designed to entertain and inspire live theatre lovers of all kinds. It offers tempting choices for one and all, whether you’re a committed Shakespeare fan or you’ve never seen a play at Bard before.”

Here are the plays, in short:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Shakespeare's comic masterpiece follows four desperate lovers and a troupe of stumbling actors through enchanted woods, on a journey of discovery to find out who they are, who they love, and why it matters. Set against a backdrop of early Industrial Revolution, enter into a place where the natural and supernatural worlds have merged, with elves, goblins, and talking trees guiding the way. Come see what lies beyond the ordinary – and lose yourself in the magic!
Directed by Scott Bellis (The Two Gentlemen of Verona, 2017). Runs from June 11 – September 26.

Henry V – Set in a mythical realm and inspired by medieval fantasy, Henry V is a sweeping, emotional tale of two kingdoms at war. Young King Hal moves from innocence to hard-won experience as he leads his country into battle, struggling against the advice of his senior counsellors, his own doubts, and the spectres of two powerful paternal figures: his father, Henry IV, and the trickster Falstaff. This riveting story explores what burden is placed on our young leaders when they face conflict, what price they will pay, and how much blood will be on their hands?
Kate Besworth (The Taming of the Shrew, 2019) plays King Henry. Directed by Lois Anderson (The Taming of the Shrew, 2019; Lysistrata, 2018). Runs from June 12 – September 20.

Love’s Labour’s Lost – It's the Jazz Age, the music is live and the party is in full swing, but a rum-running kingpin and his pals have chosen to turn their backs on the liquor and the ladies. They intend to follow a simpler, scholarly life – but can their resolve hold fast against the temptations of three beautiful, witty women? This revival of Bard’s 2015 hit makes a joyous return to 1920s Chicago and is filled with live performances of American Songbook classics.
“Thou canst expect a rip-roaring, speakeasy-happy time.” Georgia Straight (2015)
Directed again by Daryl Cloran (As You Like It, 2018; Shakespeare in Love, 2019). Runs from July 3 – September 26.

Paradise Lost – by Erin Shields
The battle is on for the souls of Adam and Eve, in this provocative retelling of John Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost.
Satan has been kicked out of Heaven and is bent on revenge. She learns of a new creation – “humans” – and escapes from Hell, determined to undo what God has created. In a time when we’re asking ourselves fundamental questions about the nature of humanity, playwright Erin Shields takes us beyond traditional ideas of good and evil to look deep into our own souls. First produced by the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in 2018, this is the play’s first Western Canadian staging.
“Brilliant. Irreverent, extremely funny and stingingly contemporary.” Toronto Star (2018)
Jessie Award-winner Colleen Wheeler plays Satan. Directed by Anita Rochon (Cymbeline, 2015).
Runs from July 10 – September 20.

The 31st Season will also offer a variety of special events, from orchestral and opera concerts to the popular Bard-B-Q & Fireworks nights. Updates on the 2020 Festival will be posted regularly at bardonthebeach.org .

Tickets and packages: Advance sales of 2020 Bard Season Packs begin Wednesday August 21, 2019 and offer a substantial discount on tickets to all four productions. The lowest Season Pack price of the year – $167 – will be in effect until September 3, after which the price of the voucher package will rise. Flex Packs go on sale in November, and single tickets in early April 2020. Order Season Packs now through the Bard website or by calling the Bard Box Office at 604-739-0559.

GPB Capital Investors Attempt to Recover Losses

GPB Capital

GPB Capital

GPB Capital investors are seeing massive declines in value and fearing for the worse following a series of bad news and investigations.

PALM BEACH, FL, USA, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — GPB Capital investors continue to receive more negative news this month. With allegations of a "ponzi-like" scheme coming from a former business partner in pending Massachusetts litigation. This following reports of substantial losses for investors including some GPB funds reporting over 74% losses.

Many investors are understandably worried about losing their investment principal and they are taking action against brokers-dealers and financial advisers who sold them to GPB Capital.

Jason Haselkorn, Partner at Haselkorn & Thibaut. P.A., a national securities fraud law firm, said: "Our firm is getting many calls from investors who are fearing the worst."

Mr. Haselkorn continues, noting: "We have over 40 years of experience with investment fraud type matters, and investors seem to be particularly concerned regarding GPB Capital funds.”

One explanation for that concern might be the significant and widespread dispersion of GPB Capital sales all over the country.

With over 60 broker-dealer firms earning commissions for having sold GPB investments to clients all over the country, it is no surprise in recent months that we have received calls from investors who have asked us to begin investigating a number of potential claims involving some of those firms, including, but not limited to: Hightower Securities, Royal Alliance, FCS Securities, Woodbury, Madison Avenue Securities, Dawson James Securities, and 60 other brokers.

GPB investors have limited time to submit their claims for recovery of investment losses. Investors who want to recover their losses or consider options can get a free case and portfolio overview by calling 1-888-628-5590.

Attractive investment income may not have always been accurately represented to some investors in GPB Capital funds. Also surprising to many investors are the extremely high commission rates paid to the financial advisoers and broker-dealer firms that recommended and approved the transactions. According to Investment News, financial advisers received more than $100 million in commissions!

At least some of the negative news began last July, as litigation in New York was pending between GPB Capital and a former partner and the allegations in that case raised some concerns for investors. Other issues raising further concerns for many investors include:

• GPB has delayed filing audited financial statements;

• August 2018: GPB announced that no new investor capital would be accepted;

• November 2018: the GPB auditor, based on perceived risk issues, resigned; and

• December 2018: FINRA and SEC launched independent investigations into GPB.

• February 2019: the FBI invaded the GPB offices.

The sole purpose of this release is to investigate the way in which GPB Capital funds were approved for sale by any broker-dealers to investor clients. If you have any knowledge or experience with these matters, please contact Haselkorn & Thibaut, P.A. at 1-888-628-5590, or visit the law firm's website at InvestmentFraudLawyers.com.

About Haselkorn & Thibaut

Haselkorn & Thibaut is a national law firm that specializes in investment fraud matters and FINRA arbitrations. They represent both individual and institutional investors to aggressively recover investment losses for victims of investment fraud.

Producers of Brick MADNESS, a comedy feature-film 10 years in the making, have chosen Circus Road Films as their producer's rep and will be distributing soon.

FRESNO, CA, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The producers of Brick MADNESS have chosen Circus Road Films as their Producer’s Representative for domestic distribution. Brick MADNESS is a mockumentary about the competitors of a National Brix Tournament (think LEGO). The filmmakers have been creating the film for the last 9 years. The timing coincides with a recent television deal, “FOX broadcasting has a new LEGO competition show which reflects positively on just how excited the general public is about this concept,” said Jennica Schwartzman, one of the film’s producers. “I’m thrilled to know that all our hard work is going to pay off.”

Brick MADNESS was created with the help of a real-world LEGO convention, Bricks by the Bay in San Jose, California and features well-known Adult Fans Of LEGO (AFOL). The movie also stars an actual Master Builder who currently works as a designer for The LEGO Group in Denmark and is originally from the Fresno, CA area. He has been responsible for the NASA Apollo Saturn V Rocket and several other high-profile sets in the last few years.

Richard Speight Jr. from Supernatural and Band of Brothers fame has a pivotal role in Brick MADNESS as does Jadon Sand, who played the leading live-action hero opposite Will Ferrel and Maya Rudolph in The LEGO Movie franchise.

Brick MADNESS has seen success on the film festival circuit with wins for Best Film, Best Comedy, Best Editing, and Best Supporting Actor at various fests. The movie has also played at five major Brick Conventions around the country. These expos have been gaining popularity over the last decade and can often exceed 25,000 attendees per event. In addition, the trailer has been featured on the largest LEGO blog in the world The Brothers Brick.

The movie itself, conceptualized and brought to life by writer/director Justin McAleece through Blare Films is considered a mockumentary, but the filmmakers say that the approach was not meant to make fun of the characters. Glen Reynolds of Circus Road had this to say about the film, “I am very excited to be representing Brick Madness. Like the great mockumentaries of Christopher Guest, the film delivers deliriously specific detail of its subject, hilarious affection for its characters, unexpected developments, and most of all a genuine sweetness.”

The movie stands to secure a distribution partnership that will get this movie out to the large contingent of LEGO fans which number in the tens of millions nationwide.
