We all suspected recently deposed Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi would be the world's worst pen pal. This is correct: He once sent a virulently anti-American letter to some random Brooklyn florist who collects letters from world leaders.

Is This Gaddafi's Killer?

Lauri Apple · 10/24/11 04:06AM

This man, identified as Libyan rebel Senad el Sadık el Ureybi, claims to be the person responsible for fatally shooting viral video sensation Muammar Gaddafi the other day. "We grabbed him, I hit him in the face. Some fighters wanted to take him away and that's when I shot him twice, in the head and in the chest," reports Ynetnews. The man shows off a gold ring and a bloody shirt that he claims had belonged to Gaddafi, but that's some pisspoor lighting and camera work going on there, so who really knows.

Max Read · 10/23/11 09:36AM

Libyan news organization Freedom Group just posted this video of the moments directly after Libyan rebels captured former dictator Muammar Gaddafi. It's the clearest video yet of Gaddafi's arrest, and unsettling to watch; as in previous videos, there's no direct evidence that the dictator was summarily executed (as has been speculated), but the footage of a bloody, seemingly terrified Gaddafi being shoved and hit in the head doesn't inspire faith in the restraint of his captors. (Michael Van Poppel of Breaking News, working off this Global Post video of the same scene, thinks that Gaddafi was "sodomized" by one of his captors, apparently with a rifle.)

Muammar Gaddafi's Body Is in a Meat Locker Right Now

John Cook · 10/21/11 01:40PM

Libyan rebels are storing Muammar Gaddafi's body in a walk-in refrigerator at a shopping mall in Misrata. They were supposed to bury him today, as per Islamic tradition, but the AP says the interim government delayed the interment so the "circumstances of his death" can be determined. (Check YouTube!) So they've parked him in a strip-mall fridge and are trying to keep the hordes outside from getting in to tear him apart.

Maureen O'Connor · 09/07/11 12:09PM

The legacy of Qaddafi's Libya keeps getting weirder. The new president of Tripoli's prestigious Fateh University recently discovered a mysterious subterranean complex under Green Theater, a center for studying Qaddafi's political manifesto the Green Book. The complex contains a bedroom, jacuzzis, mood lighting… and a fully equipped gynecological operating theater with klieg lights and an observation deck. So that's, uh, creepy. Take it away, horrified new university president:
