Edison was a filthy dirty thief, liar, cheat, and bully. It's shameful if you just do a quick google search or read a book or two how much you find out about him compared to how the world or at least the US wants to remember him. Genius does not excuse foul play.

And still today men disappear because of debt. They just walk away. No Ryan he didn’t disappear because of perfectionism, he could walk away because of debt, so many men feel they should be the bread winner. Also he coulda met an untimely end with just a stranger who had no idea who he was...also many film directors think Louis Le Prince is the father of cinema.

I wouldn't be surprised if Edison paid off Albert to kidnap Louis then maybe Albert got into an argument with Louis over the kidnapping then just... Got rid of him. Like, Edison or someone gives Al a buttload of money to just kidnap Louis, tie him up for a few weeks or so, maybe bring him to a safehouse where he's held hostage. But Louis would obviously be upset by this. Maybe he said some things that hurt Al's feelings. Al got angry and did some things he didn't mean to. Or Edison just paid off someone else to kidnap him. Then potentially killed him as ordered, or to keep him quiet.

This is so topical Edison, Americans were always stealing ideas and money from other people/countries. That's why I don't believe that Edison invented anything he just had people who could think for him and once he knew something he would eliminate them and get the credit. He was just a jealous killer, nothing more.

I took a foundations of education class my freshman year of college and we did a case study where we were giving details about a child and we had to determine what the best course of action was for educating the child based on their special needs. We didn't know that the details given to us were true stories of famous people when they were kids. The case I got was of a sociopathic child who committed arson at age 10 by burning down a barn and electrocuted dogs and horses. It was Edison. Edison definitely killed this guy and stole his plans.

Edison had friends in the patent office in NY. He was also watching LePrince. He is 100% behind his disappearance. Sketchy MF.

But if the lady had died and was in that film then there is no doubt... Louis invented moving pictures. How is this unsolved? There are a lot of famous men who ‘invented’ and ‘discovered’ things who get credit undeservingly such as the case of Edison vs Tesla, Crick and Watson vs Franklin, or Columbus who literally doesn’t deserve any of the credit he gets. It would horrible to have someone else live in infamy in your place.

It seems pretty obvious that Edison, if not one of his men, had to have "offed" this guy to steal his invention. Is it just me or is it common sense? Like seriously, I'd spit on this guy's grave, how he prayed on other people's livelihoods..
