Nurse Who “Saw Everything” At Hospital After Suspicious Batman Shooting Found Dead at 46

The End Run  Jenny Gallagher, a nurse who treated victims of the highly suspicious “Batman” shooting in Aurora, Colorado last month, is dead at age 46. The reported cause of death: drowning.

“She worked the morning after the Batman massacre in a very busy unit of the hospital — so she saw everything really, some really bad injuries,” her husband Greg reportedly toldIreland’s Herald earlier today.

The mass-shooting, which left 12 dead and 58 more injured at a midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises at Century theater, is widely suspected to have been a black operation (akin to Columbine or the Sikh Temple shooting) based on the available evidence, numerous inconsistencies and implausibilities in the “official story”, the timing, and the way the event has been framed (some would say exploited) by certain powerful interests in the media and political arena.  See for example…

Jennifer Ann Gallagher (“Jenny”) lived in Denver and worked at the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH), where the largest share of the victims of the shooting were taken in the aftermath of the July 20th theater massacre. On July 22nd, Barack Obama personally visited the hospital to meet with the victims and staff. In a speech Obama praised the UCH staff for their “extraordinary efforts”. As he spoke, he was flanked by Colorado Governor Hickenlooper, Aurora Police chief Oats, and several Congressmen.

Gallagher was actually found dead ten days ago, on August 7th.  Despite recent conflicting and incorrect reports about the location (multiple reports say it was in Colorado, while another says Ohio), The End Run has determined that she was actually found dead in Okoboji Lake, which is in Dickson County, Iowa, about 700 miles from her home town of Denver by car.

Within 24 hours or less of the discovery of her body, a short blurb about the death, which did not identify her by name, was published by the Associated Press and picked up by several local media outlets. It read:

Drowning reported at West Okoboji Lake

OKOBOJI, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say someone has drowned at West Okoboji Lake in northwest Iowa.

The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office said officers responded to a report of a drowning a little after noon on Tuesday.

The office hasn’t released the victim’s name or any other details about the drowning.

On the morning of August 8th, the day after her body was reportedly discovered, the Dickson County Sheriff’s office issued a press release identifying Gallagher as the victim (although they misspelled her name) and providing a few additional details. It read (cache):

Victim identified in West Okoboji drowning

Published on Wednesday, 08 August 2012 06:30

On Tuesday, August 7, the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a drowning on West Lake Okoboji. An investigation found that Jennifer Galagher, age 46, from Denver, Colorado, had been swimming the previous night in West Lake. On Tuesday morning, Galagher was reported missing by family.

A short time later, a family member located Galagher underneath a nearby dock. Medical personnel responded and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Assisting the DCSO were:

  • Milford Fire/Rescue
  • Arnolds Park/Okoboji Dive Team
  • Lakes Regional Healthcare Ambulance

The incident remains under investigation by the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office.

The AP then published another blurb based on this press release, which was reworked and/or republished by numerous local media outlets, primarily in Iowa, where she was found dead, and in Denver, Colorado, where she lived.  However, none of the short stories published in the local press at the time appear to have mentioned her connection to the then-highly-topical “Batman shooting”, or virtually any biographical information about her.  The death of this national heroine does not appear to have been picked up at all by the major U.S. national media. [Note: If this is incorrect, please send in links to the relevant stories by e-mail.]


Yesterday, nine days after her body was found, an article was published by Ireland’s Heraldwhich finally revealed some information about Gallagher and broke the story of her status as a UCH nurse and witness to the bloody aftermath of the carnage in Aurora.

This revelation has since been picked up and reported on by several other Irish sites, such as Ireland’s and the Irish-America, as well as the UK-based Belfast Telegraph.  However, as of this writing there still do not appear to be any reports by the major U.S. national media.

Gallagher grew up in Ireland, but has reportedly lived in Denver since moving there for college in the 1990′s.


To review: According to the initial press release by the Dickson County Sheriff’s office, Gallagher went swimming in West Lake Okoboji on the evening on Monday, August 6th, and didn’t come back. The next morning she was reported missing by her family members.  “A short time later, a family member located Galagher underneath a nearby dock. Medical personnel responded and she was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Ireland’s, who, again, revealed the Gallagher/Batman shooting connection yesterday, apparently conducted an exclusive interview with Gallagher’s husband Greg Pinson today, and they have now published a second article based upon it. Mr. Pinson is a surgeon with Surgical Specialists of Colorado. According to his curriculum vitae posted to the firm’s website, he received his undergraduate degree from Yale in 1994, his Doctorate from GWU in 1998, and did his residency at the University of Colorado School of Medicine through 2003. He is quoted by the Herald as having been married to Jenny for seven years. They have a five year old son, Jack.

Regarding the question of how Jenny died, the new Herald article says (cache):

Greg explained that the family had travelled[sic] to nearby Ohio[sic] for a holiday when Jenny tragically drowned.

He and Jack had gone to sleep when Jenny and her friend decided to take a boat out on to a lake.

“She wasn’t a very strong swimmer and I suppose she just wasn’t able to stay afloat.

“The hardest thing is I may never know what really happened to Jenny.”

Before analyzing this, let’s get a critical caveat out of the way: It is very difficult to discern the truth when dealing with second-hand media snippets like these, which are liable to contain misquotes, out of context quotes, misleading statements, and other misinformation.  For example, the first Herald article incorrectly said that Gallagher drowned in “a lake close to her home”.  The second article says that it was a lake in “nearby Ohio”. Besides the fact that Ohio is 1000+ miles from Denver, and thus not “nearby” at all, Gallagher was actually found in a lake in Iowa, which is also nowhere near Denver.

With that said, taken at face value, these two short accounts of Jenny Gallagher’s death (Sheriff’s Office and The Herald) seem to raise a number of questions:

1. Was she really not “a very strong swimmer”? Is her husband even correctly quoted on this matter by the Herald (who seem to have misquoted him elsewhere)? Jenny was 46 years old and a formidable athlete. She has been playing Gaelic football for over a decade, having competed in the North American finals in 2000.  Recently, she and her teammates on the Denver Gaels ladies football team competed in a tournament at a the Colorado Irish Festival, which they won, beating teams from San Fransisco and Dallas. A tributepublished in the club’s newsletter says that “memories of trips with the Gaels” such as “surfing in Costa Rica” would not “have been so fond had Jenny not been there”.

2. Why, while vacationing out of state, did Jenny decide to take a boat out onto a lake, at night, after her husband and son had already gone to bed, especially if she “wasn’t a very strong swimmer”?

3. If she did decide to do that, wouldn’t she at least wear a life vest?

4. Who is this friend that was allegedly with her? Why is this friend not identified by name? Why has this friend not been mentioned in previous reports?

5. If she did drown at night while boating with a “friend”, why were police and rescue crews not notified until the following day? The original Sheriff’s office press release said that she was “reported missing by family” the following “morning”. The initial AP report put the time even later –  “a little after noon” — and The Spencer Daily Reporter wrote on Aug 9th that, “Emergency crews recieved a 911 distress call at 12:45 p.m.” If a “friend” was out on the lake boating with Jenny and she disappeared in the water, wouldn’t this friend immediately rush to notify her husband and/or any other family member that may have been present, and wouldn’t they immediately alert rescue crews (assuming the friend hadn’t already)? Why did this apparently not happen?

6. If Jenny was out boating with a friend, disappeared in the water, and was later found drowned, why would her husband say, “The hardest thing is I may never know what really happened to Jenny”?

7. Who was the family member that located Jenny’s body under the dock? He or she apparently did so shortly after notifying authorities that she was “missing”, possibly even within minutes. The unnamed family member was apparently able to find her before professionally trained rescue crews. In fact, according to the Spencer Daily Reporter, this family member may have even “located” her before the crews could even begin searching: “Arnolds Park/Okoboji Fire Chief Christ Yungbluth said his department’s dive team did not have to conduct a search. … Resuce teams were on hand for nearly an hour but once they arrived at the scene, Galagher was pronounced dead.” West Okoboji Lake is approximately 3,847 acres in surface area. The Daily Reporter said that she was specifically found “in the area near Wheeler’s Beach just off of 1st Street in the city of West Okoboji.”


In an attempt to obtain answers to these questions and clarification about the facts surrounding Jenny Gallagher’s death, The End Run contacted the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office by phone this evening (Friday).

The woman who answered the phone was familiar with the case, but refused to answer any questions about Jennifer Gallagher’s death. This included a direct question as to whether or not Gallagher was boating with another individual that night as reported by the Herald.  The woman referenced the August 8th press release posted to the Sheriff’s website, firmly stating that she could not provide any information besides what was contained in that report.

When asked if she could at least confirm whether or not the incident was (still) under investigation, she again referred me to the press release from nine days ago, which says, “The incident remains under investigation by the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office”.


Given the suspicious nature of the “Batman” shooting, Jenny”s (heroic) involvement in the rescue operation at the hospital, and the timing of her unnatural death, it is only logical for researchers who understand government black operations (and corresponding cover-ups) to treat it as a potential homocide, and seek further information that confirms or refutes this hypothesis. This does not mean that it was a homocide. Accidents happen. This may have been a heartbreaking example of one. However, the publicly-available information about this death is relatively thin at this point, and it contains significant apparent contradictions and problems. Further investigation is needed by the independent media.

According to accounts written by those who knew her, Jenny Gallagher was an amazing woman; a loving mother and wife, an excellent nurse, and a person whose personality and kindness brought joy into the lives of those around her. Regardless of the cause, her untimely death is a tragedy, and my condolences go out to the many friends and family who knew and loved her. Hopefully others who investigate her death feel the same, and hopefully her family can understand our desire to seek further information about what happened to her.

  1. This is highly suspicious, yet very sad for her and her family. My condolences go out to her family. If Obama and his goons had anything to do with it (which wouldn’t surprise me), this dictator must be stopped at all cost!

  2. LaPlace as in Ho(l)mes Louisiana.
    Didn’t a shooter weeks prior live in Holmes? Unfortunately, i can’t remember which staged shooting that was.
    Not to mention Holmes the shooter.
    I know there’s more strange coincidences but my memory isn’t so good.

  3. What struck me immediately is the husband’s comment that: “…so she saw everything really, some really bad injuries.” What does that have to do with anything? That raised a red flag, in my mind, that she saw something she shouldn’t have.

  4. She was offed , pure and simple . She either knew or saw too much and became a liability . My prayers go out to her family . May she R.I.P.

  5. Simply the fact that this topic needs to be discussed… as some viable explanation of this poor woman’s death…it is like sitting around the hospital room, waiting for your country to die…you know it is on life-support…you know the odds are fairly grim, but you hope your democracy can get up off the bed and stand once more…..anyone who thinks this is a coincidence…is just dense..

    1. This is not a democracy, this is a Republic and there is a difference.
      “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” John Adams
      It is indeed the democracy that was put into place after our bankruptcy of 1933 that allowed the socialism to start slipping in.
      Democracy, no thank you.

      1. …I understand the “Republic thing”….however…in my opinion…in order to have a effective republic…you have to have a modicum of “democracy”…some form of informed public choice over their leadership, and supposed direction of the community…both locally and “nationally” whatever that is going to entail..the internationalization of that supposed “democratic” principle is where I think it breaks down…so much diversity, so many tribal and ethnic motivations…now the international motivation is greed..but we still need some form of honest, self-choice or direction..however we arrive at that…and from what I’ve seen..America still has some fight left in it, and has some fighting left to do to save itself…

  6. I understand this seems suspicious. However, this could just be a coicidence. Besides, i am sure she wasnt the only nurse, and or doctor to see everything. Its naive to think otherwise.

    1. …I know it seems naive to think this woman may have been “offed” when some many others were present in ER that morning…but that kind of thought process only comes about due to a flawed perspective…it assume all people are equal in their awareness, objectivity and observation skills…I am a “federally protected whistle-blower”…(as useless as that was)

      …and you would not believe the number of people who will look straight past obvious corruption and illegal acts…then there are those who notice it, but will not report it or connect the dots….it isn’t important that everyone else was in the same room, if everyone else didn’t react the same way, see the same thing, feel the need to report what was seen…etc, etc…

      It may only be important what this woman saw, witnessed or was willing to testify to…not what others may or may not have seen…that is the naive way to look at it…ask Vince Foster…

      1. And one thinly veiled execution would be a powerful deterrent to others.

        My condolences to the family.

  7. Wasn’t Katie Holmes in one of the Batman movies?
    Isn’t there a Holmes street mentioned in one of the staged shootings.
    Can’t remember if that was the Sihk shooting or

  8. She might simply have been at the wrong place, at the wrong time, and heard something she wasn’t supposed to hear. The Gov. doesn’t like it’s secrets / actions known. God bless her, and her family. May she R.I.P.

  9. A republic with a supposed democratically elected government. But not anymore, especially due to rigged computer voting systems. Please , see to understand if you do not already. I have worked with bev harris personally. This woman helped our organizations (project vote count, and we the people) expose the fraud here in the vote fraud mecca of the u.s.(florida) prior to the 2008 elections when ron paul was being targeted in the primaries. We have the affadavits of the voters who signed the documents waiving the right of privacy of their vote. They all can be called as legal witnesses as stated in legal forms they signed and were very happy to see our involvement as they knew they were being frauded. In my district where i operated with a host of other devoted individuals, we had more votes for one candidate than the entire state alloted to the candidate. Enter mcain/palin ticket. You are seeing the same thing this primary plus an entire book of other tactics of fraud being used this primary. There is a lawsuit , but it will never see the inside of a corrupt judicial system court room in this fascist country. We. were harrassed the entire time by police, the republican party leaders locally here etc. Just as now. Bev has been fighting this electronic voting shit for decades, long before the hanging chads incident put this corrupt system in place throughout the entire country. She and her devoted colleagues are the absolute end all authorities on this subject. Please , study this if you have not already. is the only place you need to research, but do your homework elsewhere if you like. A true patriot and kind ,helpful woman as well that will help any organization expose this crap locally in your area. There is none better. Brilliant and dedicated as well as legally on this subject the guru you seek. Maybe the best we can do is get a no confidence vote but it will be up to us to make the voters aware in order to do that. We are f#@ked!! (Unless we start our own targeted assaination program but that is what they are waiting for to institute their final plans) another words a very dangerous proposition.

  10. This Auroa, CO; shooting is as big of a conspiracy as 9/11. America is being transformed to a Devils Playground. Both Mitt & Obama, are on the same team. This has much to do with the Government, mk ultra mind control program going on at the unversity hospital that both the Nurse and Holmes, attended at 1 point. She knew too much!

  11. rational side of me says she committed suicide. maybe seeing all the injuries and working on that many people got to her. even though she is a nurse maybe she never had that many injured people at once. maybe she worked on one or more of the people that died and they died on her hands. even though she might be used to deaths, again this was a unique situation. if it was away from home and on a holiday it sounds like she wanted to get away from it all and to get her mind off things by going on vacation but it didn’t work.

    in the case she did work on someone that died (I don’t know if all that were killed were declared dead at the scene or died from injuries later?) maybe they told her something that would bring truth to this case, like maybe they saw the real shooter or something and they wanted true justice before they died. but that’s just the side of me that wants something, anything -a witness, a surveillance camera, finger prints- ANYTHING that proves Holmes is the killer besides finding him out side the theater.

    then i can see how it is suspicious, but to be honest – if it was a government op or someone trying to cover up they would of had to known where she went on vacation, unless they got the info from the hospital or friends or followed her. could of been the husband and friend have an affair going in a scott peterson scenario.

    1. Hi.
      are you a shill? I think your last paragraph is a give away.

      “then i can see how it is suspicious, but to be honest – if it was a government op or someone trying to cover up they would of had to known where she went on vacation, unless they got the info from the hospital or friends or followed her. could of been the husband and friend have an affair going in a scott peterson scenario”.

  12. My sincere condolences go out to her family and friends

    Asking questions in these tyrannical time is likely to raise the ire of the terrorists in charge and the millions of blind followers they have subjugated willingly or unwittingly. Similar to asking questions and doubting the truly fake “official” story behind nine eleven.

    There is layer upon layer upon layer of control of every single piece of information facilitating the misdirection, lies and deceit perpetrated by the criminally complicit media and almost completely corrupt authorities.

    Openness and complete truth of our officials are tantamount to a true Republic. Anything else only helps the terrorists, criminals and traitors hide in our midst. They hide behind claims such as immunity from prosecution, classified, need to know and ongoing investigation but this will not be the case when the truth is finally exposed. They will be held accountable for their actions both by the public and patriots among us

    F them. Full speed ahead down the rabbit hole
