The last 2 posts were stories from my own back yard, here in Vegas, but this new post is bringing me back to New York, and an internet mystery that goes back years. I’m sure Dorothy will try to connect all this to her east coast conspiracies, which is fine, I guess, but I’m hoping for actual insight into this new mystery and not agendas from the same old crazy people.
I only started looking into this yesterday, so my information on all of this is limited and possibly incorrect, but we have to start somewhere, so here’s my summary of what hopefully will become another ongoing subject here:
Though it may go back many more years, the mystery itself seems to begin around 4 or 5 years ago on a site called Reddit which is described as “an entertainment, social networking service and news website where registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links”. The story seems to center around a Reddit member called Religion Of Peace (RoP) and a website called “That Old Guy Image Hosting”, a site RoP had posted on Reddit. It was located at Lakecityquietpills.com. From what I can tell the site is no longer there, or at least I can’t get to it, though according to the Wayback Machine, someone archived it (or crawled it) last month, so maybe it is still there. Here is a look at the sites “about” page:
I have (through the Wayback Machine) seen some of the site and the images posted there, and just a warning if you do go searching for it, there is nudity in these images, in fact some might consider this a porn site. Although there are all sorts of JPG images here, most do have a naked or half-naked girls in them. Ohhh porn… I got some of your attention now, don’t I, lol.
How does this all become a mystery that continues on to this very day? Well it starts when someone called 2-6 writes on Reddit that Religion Of Peace had died at the age of 79. From there it all took root. There was talk of RoP possibly being a mercenary or assassin of some sort. I’m not sure if this was something people thought before or only after the news that RoP had died and some of the strange things were discovered. What strange things? Well remember that porn site of RoP’s, seems there might be some hidden stuff there.
Here’s where it starts to get confusing for those of us who are not into HTML and source codes, but there seemed to be text hidden at http://www.lakectityquietpills.com, before we get to that, let’s take a look at this domain name.
From reading comments left on Reddit about all of this, it seems most people think Silent Pills means bullets, and I’d have to agree. Then a quick Google leads you to Lake City, Mo. and the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP):
Though I saw some comments on Reddit that say something about a The Iowa Army Ammunition Plant:
I don’t know why Iowa is brought up, maybe it was a mistake, and they meant the plant in Missouri, or maybe I missed something. I should also point out that there is a Lake City, Florida, but that’s really just to confuse a few of my readers…lol.
Since I read, (as I’m sure anyone else did, looking into this) “Over 99 percent of all small-arms bullets (5.56-millimeter [mm], 7.62-mm and .50-caliber) consumed by the Army under its Title 10 responsibility to supply and equip its forces are manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant.” So,Lake City Quiet Pills seems to be referencing the LCAPP. And a comment found that was made by someone called Angel Two-Six (remember someone called 2-6 was the one to come to Reddit and let them know RoP had passed on) seems to help point us that way: “Dispensing Lake City Quiet Pills to lousy bastards in need of permanent rest since 1968.”
I know some of this may be already getting confusing, so let’s just get straight to the text found hidden at the Image Hosting site with the army bullet domain name:

Shade is maintaining the calendar and access to the filedump. Angel has the job postings for EU and asia. We aren’t sending anyone to ME. No one. Don’t ask for listings.
What to make of all this? Well it does look like possible mercenary type stuff is going on here, but is it real? A new name, Milo seems to be given for RoP, and this is discussed on Reddit as well. We also see the name Shade used here, as well as the names Fat Tommy and Stu (who thankfully are OK) all friends of RoP aka Milo? The text itself is believed to be written by the fore mentioned Angel.
If you are totally lost, I understand, and you might want to wait till I write about something else (nan nan). But if you are intrigued to read further let me throw a conspiracy theory in here. Some think the above hidden comments have something to do with the assassination of Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh . I’m guessing mainly because of the dates of the assassination being the same as the “party” mentioned in the hidden text. Now this seems absurdly crazy to me, but it shows how much people have looked into this strange site of a possibly dead mercenary. Most think the “party” was just what it says, for the memory of their good friend Milo, and most think it took place in New Jersey and New York (There ya go Dorothy, run with it).
Before we go any further you need to read some of this for your self:
This is a thread on Reddit started by zaasakokwaan, who from what I can tell was the first to find the hidden text. This is important, because of the who smelt it dealt it rule. Meaning if this is a hoax or game, the person who first brought it to light is most likely involved. The same goes for the 2-6 person who let everyone know RoP was dead (which goes along with the hidden text about Milo). Now this was 4 years ago, and I have only looked into it for the past 24 hours, so I’m not trying to jump to conclusions, just pointing out what I think might need to be pointed out.
The next thread that seems to be linked is by stereoa:
Alright, so 8 to 9 months seemed to have gone by since the announcement of RoP’s death by 2-6 and then zaasakokwaan get’s everyone’s attention with a possible mystery… now we are getting some where, right?
Well it didn’t get anywhere for 4 years. Though new threads are still popping up on Reddit and it’s section called RBI (Reddit’s Bureau of Investigation) a Reddit member called Jasenlee seemed to have done a lot of research on it all over the years. A thread by vivannick1 only a few days ago shows that no answers are yet known: http://www.reddit.com/r/RBI/comments/25gtvo/i_found_a_new_page_for_lake_city_quiet_pills/
And this thread by mdax8414 makes it seem like there is no mystery to be solved:
So what exactly went on here, was RoP aka Milo a real person who was ex military and ran an image sharing site with their old buddies, and if so was it a front for something else? Or was the whole thing some kind of game or hoax, and if so, how and why did it go on for so long, what is it’s purpose, if any?
To me though, just because so many people have been looking into it so deeply fascinates me enough, that hoax, game, hidden conspiracy, or just people looking into a group of military buddies, it don’t matter. The journey the whole thing took is what pulled me in.
