Man in Jail Proven Innocent Thanks to Mythbusters Episode

Published

on

A repeat of an old Mythbusters show helped liberate an innocent man from jail after 35 years of serving a wrongfully convicted sentence.

The Case

Two brothers perished in a Southwest Chicago apartment fire in September 1986. According to the Innocence Project, two siblings who were able to flee the fire informed investigators that they thought it had been lit by a neighbor in vengeance for her brother’s supposed death at the hands of the Latin Kings street gang.

Going Into Detail

Galvan, who was also accused of the crime along with Arthur Almendarez, was interrogated during his arrest and told he might return home provided he named further suspects. In the end, all three of them signed confessional statements and acknowledged hurling a Molotov cocktail through an apartment building window.

Years later, at the age of 39, Galvan viewed a repeat of a Mythbusters program from his cell and witnessed them demonstrate that it was virtually impossible. Hollywood clichés, such as the idea that lighting a cigarette in a gasoline pool will cause it to fire, were being tested by the show.

Galvan got in touch with his attorney, who, by chance, had also seen the show, and she further looked into this element of his case. It came out that a gang of suspected arsonists claimed that fires had been accidently ignited by cigarettes in 2007, prompting a team of researchers at the American Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to investigate the same issue. The crew made 2,000 attempts to start a gasoline fire with a lighted cigarette, even dousing lit cigarettes in gasoline. It never caught fire. This has been the spark of his freedom since then.

Tons of Fans Express Interest in a Def Jam Revival

Published

on

A popular EA series that blended fighting and hip hop has been inactive for some time. Def Jam: Icon, the company’s last real fighting game, was released in 2007, but fans have been wishing for a revival ever since.

What They Can Do

In order to show EA how much support there is for a new installment on contemporary systems, these same devoted fans have now made the decision to take matters into their own hands and start a petition. It’s been going very well so far.

Growing Strength

Over 8500 people have signed the petition to see a new Def Jam game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which was started by YouTube creator RAH GAMING. Many have also left comments expressing how much they would value the series’ return.

Ice-T also joined the Def Jam comeback earlier this year when he requested a Fight for New York revival on Twitter, predicting that it “would be a huge hit all over again.” He played a role in the game too, so knowing that he’d likely be open to developing a new installment if the chance presented itself is pretty reassuring.

A Huge Announcement

Todd Howard, executive producer at Bethesda and director of Starfield, disclosed that the company is creating another mobile game on the most recent episode of Lex Fridman’s podcast.

Something New

Howard was frank while discussing the conceptual differences between creating a game for a console and one for a mobile device: “Well we’ve done a few things, and we have a new mobile game that we’re working on that we haven’t announced yet that I am in love with.”

He made no other hints as to the game’s genre, release date, or other details, but he did suggest that it will be a longer experience rather than a game meant to be played in spurts.
