A janitor who worked in one of the World Trade Center towers and
helped save lives on 9/11, in addition to witnessing what he described
as "explosions" in the tower basement, has committed
York Daily News reported yesterday that Kenny Johannemann
shot himself in the head last Sunday, August 31, 2008.
Mr Johannemann's suicide note stated that he was
taking his own life as he was being evicted and could not handle
homelessness. The note also stated that since 9/11 he had become
depressed and had been drinking.
Here is the entire text of the note, a picture of which can be
as reported in the Daily News:
"The reason I killed myself was 'cause I was getting evicted
and can't handle homelessness. I was also very depressed since
I was in 9/11. I've been drinking way too much and it's ruined
my life. I've lost friends and family over drinking and I'm
very lonely. There is nothing left for me to be happy about
other than my cat. Sounds weird, but it's true. I just wanted
to say I'm sorry 2 any people I ever hurt in my life. I really
was a good person when I wasn't drinking. I hope people remember
According to the Daily News report, relatives found another letter
next to his suicide note. The second letter (right), dated October
31 2001 and type written on White House stationery featuring the
president's signature, was an acknowledgement of Johannemann's
bravery on 9/11.
The letter refers to Johannemann's actions of pulling
a burning survivor to safety, thus saving his life.
In the aftermath of the attacks, Johannemann appeared
on the "Jenny Jones Show" to relate this story.
The Daily News article features quotes from a Joseph
Maya, described as a cousin of Johannemann. Maya reportedly stated
that during this time after 9/11 Johannemann became reclusive
and stopped associating with his family, something he had previously

It must be stressed that in such a delicate situation
it is not our place to theorize on the tragic death of a someone
who was clearly a very private person and whom those outside his
own family know very little about.
However, it is our duty as a primary source of information
for questions and repressed information surrounding the attacks
of 9/11 to point out that Mr Johannemann was a key witness to
what he described as "explosions" in the basement of
the north tower of the WTC, and that his suicide has raised suspicions
amongst some 9/11 researchers.
Like William Rodriguez, Kenny Johannemann was working
as a janitor at the World Trade Center towers on September 11th.
He appeared on live TV on the morning of 9/11, a clip that later
became viral on the internet and has been used in several 9/11
truth documentaries, including William Rodriguez's Last Man
In the clip (featured below) Johannemann states
that a second "explosion" occurred in the north tower
10 minutes after an "explosion" in the south tower.
The footage shows the two burning towers in the background before
they were demolished.
Johannemann describes how he was in the basement
and witnessed the elevator "blow up" and how he dragged
a man out whose "skin was hanging off". This is identical
to the story that William Rodriguez has related, the only difference
being that he continues to tell it in the spotlight in public
venues across the world.
