For many years Fletcher was an intellectual trailblazer in the 9/11 Truth movement. He was also a close collaborator with Professor David Ray Griffin, whose books he edited and who he frequently represented on interview programs.

Fletcher contributed to the website,, and the popular site, where his modest bio reads:

I never fell for the official explanation of 9/11. I’ve been researching and writing about 9/11 since 9/12, and have expressed my views on on Guns and Butter and other radio shows. My focus now is on proving that the official account cannot be true. A genuine investigation is imperative.

In 2012 Mr. Fletcher vigorously defended Professor Griffin’s position on the Pentagon against John Wyndham’s aggressive criticisms of Griffin, and against Wyndham’s claim that “The entirety of the evidence then shows that a large plane did hit the Pentagon.” 

Yet Wyndham’s “scientific method” was to rely on eyewitness testimony rather than forensic crime scene evidence.[1]

Fletcher was also a guest on Bonnie Faulkner’s Guns & Butter radio show in early September.[2]

Fletcher’s wife had been suffering from debilitating health conditions for some time. As a post on by Fred Burks reads, “Tod’s wife Susan had major struggles with severe chronic fatigue syndrome and numerous hypersensitivities for nearly three decades, to the point that she was bed-ridden much of that time.” Burks continues,
Her pain and suffering was such that she contemplated suicide several times. She even attempted it once about 10 years ago, saved only when Tod found her and rushed her to the emergency room. The two were very close, and Tod spent much of his time caring for her.

Below is the letter I received in the from Tod on September 30th. It was dated Sept. 28, 2014.

Dear Fred,
Susan has reached the point at which she requires release, and as she can’t effect this herself, I must help her, as I promised her long ago I would do.

But helping her will make me a criminal in deed as well as thought, and I don’t expect I’d be fairly or mercifully treated. So I am going to accompany Susan to the world beyond. 

By the time you read this, we will have made our passage.

I am indeed sorry for the difficulties this will make for you. I never intended to give you little “notice” should I quit, but Susan’s sudden worsening was beyond my control.

I don’t need, I imagine, to say what a great pleasure and privilege it was to work with you all these years. Nor to say, be happy for us, for we are at peace at last.

Our love to you,
Tod and Susan

I was shocked to receive this letter. I made some calls to the authorities a couple hours after receiving it. They would not confirm any information other than to next of kin, but it became very clear in our conversations that the bodies had been found at Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County, CA, about an hour north of San Francisco. What a sad and tragic ending to the lives of these two caring souls.
