At first, all we knew was that there were shots fired and they were heard around the Hart Sen. Building. Then little by little, we were fed more details. Fingers crossed, I hoped the person wasn’t Black. A few more details later, there was a car chase, starting from a crash into the White House barricade, striking officers and ending near the Capitol, where the suspect was shot and killed. There was a child in the car, Miriam’s one-year-old daughter, Erica. Again, something doesn’t feel quite right.

A few more details later, it’s a woman, then a mother, then finally, a Black woman. Ouch. Maybe I’m partial, but now I am convinced, this just ain’t right. I am an admitted conspiracy theorist and I instantly felt this was what many career theorists call a “False Flag.”

MasterChef Finalist Commits Suicide

“I don’t think people realize the toll the reality show put on him,” Marks’ stepfather, Gabriel Mitchell, says. The family said they didn’t notice signs of mental illness in Marks until after “MasterChef” filming ended.

Marks’ mother, Paulette Mitchell, said her son was hit hard by his recent diagnosis of schizophrenia following a diagnosis of bipolar disorder earlier this year.

“He couldn’t bear the thought of another diagnosis,” Mitchell told the paper.”He was just coming to accept the diagnosis of bipolar.”

The self-taught chef was ordered to undergo a mental health assessment in August to determine if he was mentally fit to stand trial after he was accused of attacking a cop at the University of Chicago.

Months before his arrest, Marks revealed his difficulties with mental illness in a video for the “Make a Sound Project, “an organization dedicated to helping people struggling with suicidal thoughts.

“He wouldn’t hurt anybody,” Marks’ mother said. “But he hurt himself.”
