    Last week, when Ukrainian President Zelensky addressed Congress, he compared his nation’s war vs. Russia to The Battle of the Bulge, that fierce encounter through the Ardennes forest during Christmas 1944-45 that turned the tide for America against Hitler’s Third Reich. This is the WSJ’s coverage of his speech.

    As we celebrate The Holidays, remember all of the American heroes who died or were wounded in that battle, particularly Eduardo Tirella, Private First Class, who served in Company K of the 328th Infantry. He’s seen below with his mother Etilia Falgione Tirella after he came home.

    Eddie was the youngest of her nine children and on D-Day she sent him a letter praying for an end to the War and congratulating him on earning his PFC stripes.

    Twenty-two years later, he was murdered by Doris, Duke, then the wealthiest woman in America. The local police in my hometown of Newport, RI, quickly covered-up the case, Doris avoided any criminal charges and within weeks Etilia died of grief.

    Eddie was so humble about his war service that his relatives never knew that he was awarded The Bronze Star until The Pentagon sent them a grave marker following his death on October 7th, 1966.

    For the latest news on his extraordinary life, his violent death under the wheels of a two-ton station wagon driven by Duke, and the police cover-up that followed GO HERE.

    The entire story is told in HOMICIDE AT ROUGH POINT, a 438 page book with 110 images and 60 pages of authentication proving that Duke got away with murder. This video will give you a brief overview of the remarkable true crime mystery that is ongoing.
