Dead journalist found… another one to add to the Clinton body count perhaps?  Gavin MacFadyen, WikiLeaks CO-Director and the Founder of the Center for Investigative Journalism, has died. “We are extremely sad to announce the death of Gavin MacFadyen, CIJ’s Founder, Director and its leading light,” the Centre for Investigative Journalism team wrote on its Twitter.


WikiLeaks has officially confirmed it on their Twitter by posting a tribute to the man, saying that he is now taking “his fists and his fight to battle God.” This Twitter message was signed JA, referring to the WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange. It is unknown how Assange was able to post the message given the massive restrictions that he is under currently as a result of his revealing and bringing to light the crimes of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Convention.

Wikileaks also shared a statement from MacFadyen’s wife, Susan Benn.

The statement was published on MacFadyen’s Center for Investigative Journalism site where she noted that he was a “fierce defender of justice and human rights around the world. He was the model of what a journalist should be… He spearheaded the creation of a journalistic landscape which has irrevocably lifted the bar for ethical and hard-hitting reporting. Gavin worked tirelessly to hold power to account. His life and how he lived it was completely in sync with the principles that he held dear and practiced as a journalist and educator – to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable,” Benn wrote.

He was known as a mentor to Julian Assange and his closest friend.  He was also a mentor to many others in the industry, producing and directing more than 50 investigative documentaries covering a wide range of diverse issues over multiple countries.  He had been banned from apartheid South Africa and the Soviet Union for his investigative work and was also attacked by British Neo-Nazis over the course of his life. He worked tirelessly to shed light on topics like child labor, pollution, the torture of political prisoners, neo-Nazis in Britain, UK industrial accidents, Contra murders in Nicaragua, the CIA, maritime piracy, election fraud in South America, South African mines, as well as many others. He also contributed to and worked on investigative television programs for PBS’s Frontline, Granada Television’s World in Action, the BBC’s Fine Cut, Panorama, The Money Programme, and 24 Hours, as well as Channel 4’s Dispatches.

MacFadyen’s official cause of death has not been made public.  In the original post from his wife Susan, she wrote that he died as a result of “a short illness” now that line has been removed from the post. The reason why is currently unknown.

MacFadyen gave an interview to RT’s Going Underground program earlier this year with regards to the publication of leaks surrounding Hillary Clinton and her bid for the presidency, most recently the emails from her aide John Podesta. The continuing exposure of the depths of corruption with the Clinton campaign and within the DNC itself has proved to be of significant issue for Hillary and the scandals continue to plague her.  During that interview, MacFadyen stated that the documents released so far are merely a drop in the ocean of the information WikiLeaks is receiving.  He also expressed hope that while “there’s only one known Snowden,” there may be other whistleblowers who will keep shedding light on injustice.
