This year it hired Colbert. Some called for the TV host to boycott the event, and privacy group Fight for the Future started an online petition asking Colbert not to attend. “Now a lot of people, maybe some in this room, were upset to learn I’d be speaking here today. Many of you see me as a champion of privacy,” said Colbert. “Which I know because I read your emails.” Colbert was quick to defend RSA and his decision to keep the paid gig. He said he believed the security company was exonerated by its claim to have promoted the supposedly compromised standard a full two years before the NSA payoff. He asked if it was fair to boycott this conference when other major companies such as Apple, Microsoft, Verizon and Yahoo had all been linked to the NSA. He also joked that as a freedom lover, he doesn’t engage in boycotts. And that he had signed a contract so his conscience was clear, as long as his checked cleared. While the RSA got a pass, Colbert didn’t go as easy on the NSA or Edward Snowden, whom he referred to as “practically a war criminal” for taking top secret U.S. intelligence to China and then to Russia.

“She was killed elsewhere.” For more than three decades, authorities hoped a distinctive marking on the young woman’s body would lead to a break in the case: a small, heart-shaped tattoo just above her left breast. It was not until recently that authorities were able to create a DNA profile of Jane Doe. The medical examiner had preserved DNA from the body, even though forensic testing was not advanced in 1980. Authorities from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department have been working with workers from North Texas State University’s lab in comparing Jane Doe’s DNA to the profiles of other murder victims. To date, no match has been made. Green said it is possible the victim lived in a foster home at some point in her life because no one reported a missing woman matching her description at that time. “That might have been a reason why nobody ever looked for her,” Brown told FoxNews.com. “She could be from anywhere not necessarily Oklahoma.” Green said he believes more than one person was responsible for her death, and noting that, “violent outlaw biker gangs” were present in Oklahoma in 1980.
