Known for
Disappearance and death in 2007

Thomas K. Mooney (January 30, 1962 – June 28, 2007) was an American diplomat and Army officer until his disappearance and death in 2007.[1]
Background[edit]
Mooney held the rank of lieutenant colonel in the United States Army. He was posted as a Defense Attaché at the U.S. embassy in Nicosia, the capital of the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus.
He had been serving in Cyprus since June 2006,[2] on his second posting to the country.
At the time of his death, Mooney was 45 years old, and he had a wife and two children.[3]
Death[edit]
After reportedly being last seen leaving the embassy midday on June 28, 2007, Mooney was reported as a missing person to Cypriot authorities after a day in which the embassy conducted its own search.[2] Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported that “one colleague said he had been going to a fitness center at a Nicosia hotel,” while another said Mooney planned to pick up somebody at the Larnaca International Airport.[4] His car, a black Chevrolet Impala, was also missing.[2]
A search on ground and by air included checks of ports, airports, and checkpoints along the ceasefire line with the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus.[2] The search ended when Cyprus authorities found Mooney dead four days later about 150 yards from his locked car on a dirt road in the “foothills of the Troodos mountains,” about 45 km (28 miles) southwest of Nicosia, in a remote area near the town of Lefka,[2][5] first reported by Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation state radio. Mooney was identified conclusively from dental records.[2]
Reports of the discovery of his body were confirmed by U.S. ambassador Ronald L. Schlicher. In a written statement to the media and posted on the embassy website, Schlicher said that “After the notification of next of kin, with deep sadness, I announce that LTC Thomas Mooney, who served his nation with distinction as our Defense Attaché, was found dead by Cypriot authorities on Monday. The cause of his death is being investigated, and any further information will be released as appropriate.” Schlicher also announced the cancellation of a planned July 2 Independence Day reception.[6] The State Department said Mooney’s death was not connected to terrorism; State Departm

Ōuchi Yoshinaga

In this Japanese name, the birth family name is Ōuchi.
Ōuchi Yoshinaga (大内 義長?, 1532 – May 1, 1557) was a 16th-century Kyushu warrior who was invited by Sue Harukata, who had just taken control of the Ōuchi clan, to serve as the official head of the Ōuchi while Sue pulled the strings from behind. Yoshinaga was the younger brother of Ōtomo Yoshishige. Following Mōri Motonari’s victory over Sue in 1555 at Miyajima, Yoshinaga’s position became quite vulnerable. Yoshinaga was forced to commit suicide in 1557, effectively causing the Ōuchi clan to become extinct.[1]

Biography[edit]
Hamblen was born to the family of an itinerant Methodist preacher on October 20, 1908, in Kellyville, Texas. He married Suzy Daniels and fathered two children with her. Hamblen’s father was Dr. J. H. Hamblen, a minister in the Methodist Church in Texas, who in 1946 founded the Evangelical Methodist Church denomination in Abilene, Texas.
From 1931 Hamblen began hosting the popular radio program Family Album in California, composing music and acting in motion pictures with cowboy stars including Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and John Wayne. In 1934 he became the first artist signed by the American subsidiary of Decca Records.[1]
Hamblen didn’t cope well with the pressures of his high-profile career and sought relief in alcohol. Many times his drinking landed him in jail for public brawling and other destructive behavior. The Texas State Historical Association reports that Hamblen identified himself as the “original juvenile delinquent.”[2] Because Hamblen was hugely popular, his radio sponsors regularly bailed him out of jail and smoothed things over. For a while, he ventured into horse-racing as an owner.[3] Inevitably, Hamblen’s drinking and gambling problems severely affected his life and career. In 1949 after years of struggle with alcohol, Hamblen underwent a religious conversion at a Billy Graham crusade in Los Angeles, and was soon fired from his radio program after refusing to do beer commercials. He subsequently gave up gambling and horse racing, and entered Christian broadcasting with his radio show The Cowboy Church of the Air, which ran until 1952.[4]
