Journalism is by far a most dangerous job just to get the real truth. And Slovak journalist Jan Kuciak became another casualty. Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova were found dead from gunshot wounds at his home in Velka Maca. Kuciak was very to the point investigating tax-fraud stories from shady businessmen and politicians. And even getting involved in multiple exclusives.

Kuciak was 27.

Shame about Bannister. With everything being about going pro these days it's great to read about guys like him who are able to forego the fame and move on to another field at the height of their athletic career. That he became a hugely successful physician as well speaks to his intelligence and dedication.

From March 9th.

He will be considered as the 1st Mexican-American POW during WWII and a Holocaust survivor. Anthony Acevedo - an Army Medic who wrote the atrocities and was singled out as Jew even though he was a Roman catholic, has passed away on February 11. His ordeal began on January 6th 1945 during the Battle of the Bulge when he and another 349 were captured turning them as slave laborers in a labor camp in Berga held in Stalag IX-B. Acevedo would keep track of the deaths of his fellow comrades through his diary that he had hidden in his pants.

In 2008, Acevedo finally told the truth about the atrocities that also included a forced march when allied soldiers were closing in before the Nazis began clearing out the camps. Acevedo and other prisoners were forced to wheel out his dead comrades until they were liberated on April 23rd.

From Acevedo:
Let it be known. People have to know what happened.
Acevedo was 93.
