    Remember the tylenol poisonings way back when? It turns out the whole thing was to make a murder look like it was a part of a random poisoning.

    where the hell did you get that idea?

    They are free to feel whatever they want about our government, or any government for that matter, as is everyone in this country.

    HOWEVER

    Whomever left a guy out there to rot on the end of a rope is most certainly in the wrong.

    "FED," just sounds odd, like something that wouldn't spring to the mind of someone making and anti-government point. Maybe "GOV" with a line through it would be more likely?

    And while I can picture violence of such a personal nature being directed against a law enforcement officer, or some sort of tax collector, a census worker? I'd think turning the dogs on them would be the most extreme likely choice.

    I agree with the post above that it might be a diversion, but it also might be the killer's initials, in which case the killer will almost certainly be a jilted lover.

    You must not know or have talked to any extreme libertarian/ron paul types. The Fed to them seems to be like the Jews to Nazi's, the supreme evil of this world. They never shut up about it.

    And beyond that "The Feds" is a common way many people classify any federal employee

    I agree with the post above that it might be a diversion, but it also might be the killer's initials, in which case the killer will almost certainly be a jilted lover.
    The initial suggestion is an interesting one and potentially plausible, but unlikely both due to the stupidity of putting ones initials IN the dead body and the coincidence that it just happens to be a federal employere.

    I wasn't aware that the census bureau was conducting interviews now. I think there's a good chance he stumbled onto a meth lab or a marijuana patch.

    I think Gill's statement is probably the closest to a rational theory that I've seen. The appalachians and the Ozarks are rife with secret marijuana growing operations, back in all the little nooks and hollers.

    That's what I was thinking as well, sans the dogs. The census has been in effect since the early days of the U.S. and is considered an important representation tool when used properly, these census takers have no actual power and a legitimate job to do, you would think an IRS agent or ATF/FBI/ERA/etc. would have been a kooks preferred choice.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Wow...that's messed up. Who really knows the reason at this point, but hopefully they get some clues soon. I would doubt political reasons only because it seems pointless to hate the government and kill a census worker, they don't really have any power or authority and offing one isn't going to change anything.

    Not sure, but if someone kills a federal worker, isn't that a federal crime?
