A body found late Tuesday night in the Chattahoochee River is that of missing CDC scientist, Timothy Cunningham, who allegedly revealed that the flu vaccine was causing the flu outbreak.
Timothy Cunningham went missing more than a month ago. The CDC scientist disappeared on Feb. 12 after leaving work at his Chamblee office early in the day following complaints that he did not feel well. Much suspicion surrounds the disappearance as Cunningham seemingly vanished into thin air with his keys, phone, car, and dog left behind at his residence.
On Feb. 27, Atlanta Police said on the day he went missing, Cunningham had a meeting to discuss a potential promotion.
“That meeting was to explain a promotion that he did not receive to a branch manager. He had been informed the previous Monday that he was not getting the promotion, but the explanation occurred on the morning of the twelfth,” authorities said in the February press conference.
The CDC denies Cunningham was eligible for a promotion.
On Tuesday night, fishermen contacted authorities after discovering a decomposing body in the Chattahoochee River near Donald L. Hollowell, approximately 400 yards upstream from the bridge. The body has been identified as 35-year-old Timothy Cunningham. Rescuers were unable to determine how long the body had been in the river.
A press conference has been scheduled for Thursday, April 5th at 2 p.m. Click here to watch.
