A gregarious guy, he was well-known in Philadelphia and elsewhere, counting among his friends such diverse luminaries as Gene Roddenberry, Edgar Mitchell, and Philip K. Dick, to name but a few.
He claims to have come up with the idea for the Left's favorite holiday. On the other hand, he's also a sociopath.
On April 22, 1970, tens of thousands of people came together in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park to celebrate the first Earth Day: an event organized to raise awareness regarding pollution and other threats to our planet’s ecological health.
The master of ceremonies for the event was Ira Einhorn, a man known as "the Unicorn" after the English translation of his German surname, "one horn." Many years later, he would become better known as "the Unicorn Killer."
Following a five-year relationship with one Helen Maddux, in which she left several times only to reconcile. At length she disappeared completely, but was found in 1979 - drained of blood, wrapped in plastic, and stashed in a steamer trunk in Ira's storage room.
Einhorn was arrested, but managed to get a $40,000 bail thanks to the efforts of his attorney, future United States Senator Arlen Specter. Einhorn was freed after his parents put their home up for collateral, and fled to Europe only days before his trial was to begin. Once he was safely out of the United States, he stole a supporter’s identity, remarried, and spent the next sixteen years moving about Europe.
He was found in France in 1997, and eventually was extradited back to the USA. He's now doing life in a Pennsylvania prison.
We should rename it "Unearthed Day".
