4/10    Is it just me, or it seems really ironic that a bunch of iconic
        monopolists in the Guilded Age funded a bunch of academic institutions
        through their philanthropies and those institutions later on produced
        famous academics that are highly critical of their benefactors
        and attack the ideals on which those monopolists based their
        philosophy on?

David Allen, Stars and Stripes Pacific edition, Friday, August 25, 2006 CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa Almost 11 years after the crime that recharged opposition to US bases here, a former Marine convicted in the abduction and rape of an Okinawa schoolgirl is believed to have killed a Georgia woman before committing suicide in her apartment. Ledet is referred to as a suspect as long as there is an active investigation, Brock said. He said the medical examiner must file his report for the investigation to wrap up, expected to happen later this week. She apparently had been sexually assaulted, then killed by strangulation and a blow to the head, according to the Journal-Constitution. Ledet and Cooper were former co-workers, according to the police report. There were no signs of forced entry into Coopers off-campus apartment, which was in a gated, luxury community, Brock said. The coroner said Ledet committed suicide, apparently several hours after Cooper was killed, according to the Journal-Constitution account. The bodies were discovered Sunday when Coopers parents went to check on her after not hearing from the marketing major for several days. Ledet was a 21-year-old private first class when sentenced in March 1996 with Pfc. Rodrico Harp, 22, and Navy Seaman Marcus Gill, 23, a medic, for raping a 12-year-old girl they abducted from a street corner in Kin village, just outside Camp Hansen where they were stationed. The incident, which occurred on Labor Day 1995, outraged Okinawans, resulting in several large protest rallies. In 1996, the United States and Japan signed a bilateral agreement to reduce the amount of land on Okinawa covered by US bases by 21 percent. Harp and Gill were sentenced to seven years of hard labor in a Japanese prison. Ledet who claimed he changed his mind about the rape but faked having sex with the girl because he feared Gill was sentenced to 6 years. All three men were released from prison in 2003 and dishonorably discharged.
