Did the Mormons Plot to Kill Howard Hughes?


Usually, I blame Tom Cruise for everything, but he wasn't even born when the events that happened to Howard Hughes transpired. Besides, Tom is a Scientologist, not a Mormon. (Yes -- there is a difference).

Anyways, during the last twenty years or so of his indiosyncratic life, billionaire paranoid Aviator extraordinare Howard Hughes had a whole army of aids, security guards, suerveliance crew and drivers that were all Mormon. The legend goes that Hughes was talking on the phone to some Hot Shot's PA on New year's Eve and realizes he was talking to someone who was stone cold sober. "I'm Mormon, so I don't drink or smoke," was the answer.

So, Hughes hired a Mormon. Somehow, this Mormon managed to push out all other employees and have them all replaced by Mormons. It won't be any shocking news to know that Hughes spent his last yeatrs in a drugged stupor, where he was easily maniupulated to giving away his fortune to the "Mormon Mafia" (as his aids were called).

You wonder why the Mormons bothered. Perhaps it was the money. Perhaps it was a shitload of money. Then again, I wonder if the original Mormon employee thought, "I could really make this sinner's life a living hell. And it would serve him right, because I'd be doing God's work."

After all, Hughes was not exactly a poster boy for morality (mainstream, Christian or Mormon). He held hundreds of people's lives in the palms of his hands and really couldn't care less what heppened to them (not through bad morals -- but through the at least head injuries he sustained in his lifetime).

I bet you most of the Mormons who mistreated and robbed Hughes felt perfectly justified in what they were doing.

And if we think we are better than those Mormon aids, then we really don't know ourselves very well.

Just finished reading "Citizen Hughes"--have you read it? Very interesting.

I've been fascinated by Howard Hughes for years and made him one of my projects as an amateur historian. Believe it or not, even at their most powerful, Hughes' "Mormon Mafia" still hired a few non-Mormons for low-level jobs. One of those jobs was, surprisingly, Hughes' personal assistant. (Ron Kistler, for instance.) But Ron was told his career potential was limited as he was not a Mormon. Did the Mormons kill Hughes? Probably. Unlike most Christian groups, Mormons make no excuses for virtually worshiping money and hero-worshiping those who obtain it in creative fashion. A great book covering a lot about the Mormon connection is "Howard Hughes: Power, paranoia and Palace Intrigue." By the way, how did you stay in England for 5 yrs.? I got kicked out after seven months of living on the road. Exceeded the allowed time for a foreigner in country w/o residency permit. Not only was I not given one, but was not even allowed to apply for one. Of course, I was a grubby guy with a beard; not a sexy young lady.

I haven't read "Citizen Hughes", but I keep meaning to. Thanks for commenting, Heather.

Thanks for the other book recommendation, Orlando. (It takes time for the comments to appear, so sorry you had trouble putting your comments up. I get a lot of spam and nasty emails, so I moderate the comments before putting them up). I stayed in England for so long because I was homeless all that time. No one asked me if I was legal or illegal until I was at Gatwick airport to go back to Philly. When were you in England?

Howard Hughes was not only ahead of his time;he was also a humanitarian. Sure,people will make boastful claims to his morality,...but mostly these are weak minded hypocrits who hide behind religion so they can justify ignorance and genocide. These people make decisions based on text,..but never hard evidence. The reason Howard Hughes entered into an obsessive state is because the mormons were in fact weak-minded criminals;capitolizing on the fruits of his labor. He was diagnosed mentally ill by a peace of garbage psychiatrist whose only intentions were to dope him out of his mind and milk him for personal information as to slander his character by twisting the facts.

I think you might all be slightly retarded. This may be one of the most ridiculous blog posts I have ever read. Ya - I'm sure the Mormons killed Hughes... this may be the silliest conspiracy theory ever concocted. Hate to burst your bubble, but the Mormon church has plenty of money of their own. They don't need to waste their time or put their reputation in danger by knocking off anyone.

Its quite obvious that both the author of this blog and everyone who has made a comment know very little about the history involved or the "Mormons" who worked for Hughes.

Yes, mormon mafia killed Howard Hughes for the sake of money. Bill Gay was indeed a devil worshipper in disguise.

Everyone seems sure the Mormons killed Howard Hughes and yet no one states any evidence to validate their claim.

The poster who claims Mormons worship money is way off base. It is sad that Bigotry is alive and well in the U. S. How would you feel if someone projected stereotypes on you because of what someone did who is the same sex, religion or race that you are. Does it make you feel better to belittle people who have different beliefs than you?

I worked for Mr. Hughes right up to his death. I spoke to him often (intercom). I am not Mormon but have first hand experience with them. They treated Mr. Hughes with total respect and honesty.

Mr. Hughes Killed himself (not the Mormons) after years of prescription drug abuse, alcohol, negligence and mental illness. I personally flew to Mexico and South America, many times to settle with the hotel owners after Mr. Hughes trashed several suites, due to drugs and orgies (he watched behind a medical mask and silk sheets).

To blame his death on the the Mormons is pure ignorance and Bigotry.

Hahahahaha!!! I can't believe what I'm reading.... I'm a staunch Mormon and this does NOT have anything to do with the Mormon Faith.... If Mr. Hughes trusted anyone it is the persons who surrounded him and if they were Mormon it was for a purpose, we are trustworthy. We are people who are upstanding and we are a group of people helping and loving others. I laugh again.... We are a people of loving our fellow man... We help where it is needed and wanted... We give without expectations.. To assume that the Mormons have anything to do with the death of Howard Hughes is comical at best. We give, thats what we do. We help anyone who is in need. No matter who it is! I worship one person. That is God himself who may take on may different forms. That what we do, that's who we are!

If they are such wonderful people, why in Heaven's name would they allow someone to fall into such a state of neglect? Did any of his money go into the hands of these people??????

Interesting that everyone who posted in defense of the mormons or to decry you as a bigot chose to post anonymously.

Mormonism purports that one may lie, cheat, steal or murder a "gentile" if it be "the will of God."

and who is to determine the will of God?

The truth is that there is ample evidence for the Mormon Mafia's deathgrip on Mr Hughes' life. One need only do some research at the library to ascertain this information.

The conditions surrounding the fraudulent Will is also well documented and quite shady. Anyone with even the shallowest powers of reason could put this together: a Will shows up purporting to be from a man who was very highly educated, yet is riddled with spelling errors, leaves money to a church other than the one to which this man belonged, yet his church is conspicuously absent from the Will. Finally the fingerprints of one of the heirs are all over the Will, but neither Hughes' nor his attorney's fingerprints are on it at all. Doesn't take a rocket scientist.

ps, anonymous mormon— the word "retarded" is not exactly considered politically correct outside of utah (deseret).

The real issue is not about The Mormon faith, but of the certain individuals who would with-hold Mr.Hughes pain medication to force him to hire relatives and cut large checks who just happened to be Mormon's. This is proven by FACT. But this has nothing to do with Mormons as a religious group, nor their beliefs nor their church. As one blogger said The Church has way enough money than to bother with knocking someone off. Mr. Hughes tortured his kidneys with Emperin a very strong form of Asprin, non-narcotic. These facts and the well documented neglect have only to do with poor choice of his medical staff, who are partial to blame of course. But the fact he lived to 70 years old was a miracle in its own. So stop with attacking religious views or claiming a Mormon mafia, as I myself am nowhere near a Mormon but a firm believer that Howard Hughes was one of the greatest human beings who has ever lived. Not many people mention how he invented Urgent Care in the united states, the hydraulic hospital lift bed, huge donations to medical research that continue today and founder of many Hospital's nation wide. He did not DRINK ALCOHOL nor smoke. He was addicted to opiates and benzos ,aka Valium with great reason.He was a great man. A humanitarian. A genius. So on the topic of such a Great person of our time lets not waste it on bigotry and difference. There are many many bad Doctors, who we all know is to blame for Mr. Hughes death. Quite like the death of Michael Jackson. So does this mean black doctors are careless and negligent also ???

Could be the stupdiest post I have seen online ever. I think you only posted it because you knew it would draw traffic to your site. Shame on you!

Mr. W.S. said...

Howard Hughes was so paranoid and drugged up that he most likely hired Mormons because he thought they could be trusted and also because he most likely thought they were cleaner than most because they didn't smoke and drink. Notice how those who are critical of the Mormons are too weak and small minded to add their names and personal blogs or facebook addresses. It is easy to comment on situations you don't understand, but it is difficult to own them when you are speaking out of pure emotion instead of researched fact. And your local pastor doesn't count as fact.

Mormons are like everyone else... NOT CLOSE TO PERFECT, but as someone who has dealt with them for twenty years I can attest to the idiocy of several of those who commented.

You must first understand Hughes before you make ridiculous accusations. For example:

"Mormons make no excuses for worshiping money and hero worshiping those who obtain it in a creative fashion"

And you commented as Anonymous... Loser...

This comment is as dumb as that concept that the Christian Church once thought the world was flat and killed people for saying otherwise, except early Christians did kill people for dumb reasons while Mormons are not Devil worshipers and money worshipers.

Comments like these are so dumb that you wonder what the IQ is of the individuals who pen them to paper or strike a few keys... naivety most likely, but it is brutish naivety that leads even dumber people to believe the writings of some blogging hack.

Brother Francis you, as you seem to be a thinking man, disappoint me the most. You know what it is like to have history turned against you. Christians, in our day, are blamed for the Crusades though they did not actually start the war. While the lunacy of a few grew strong, it was not the entire church that slaughtered women and men in the name of God because they were thought to be witches. (the numbered of killed thought to be in the tens of thousands if not the hundreds of thousands).

Yet you claim to have researched this theory and found proof. Please provide a link to a website that is trustworthy that backs up your sad claims.

The will was passed around to many before being brought into court. Anyone could have touched it, but a fingerprint does not prove guilt in a man.

Say you go to visit a nun. She offers you water. You accept. Your prints are on a glass. Later that night she is found dead and the only prints in the whole room other than hers are yours. Are you a guilty man? Or did the others who entered happen to use gloves to hide their prints?

To think a man of thought could be so easily riled means only one thing. You must be retarded. (that is of course sarcasm... I wouldn't want to be politically incorrect because many Christian Churches are now altering their faiths to ensure they are POLITICALLY CORRECT and let's be honest... the PC crowd has truly made the world a better place, right?)

Last, but not least, Josh... please post a link to a reputable source so we might be able to learn of these FACTS you claim to know.

I can only hope my post isn't deleted. Free speech is only worth the while if we agree with it it would seem.

Talk for yourself little Miss Rena. There are people out there that aren't motivated by money. I even know some, including myself, that is motivated by doing the morally correct actions because money cant buy integrity, honesty and being true to God. (Note: I am not a born again christian or born again throigh any other religion.)
