When we last heard about self-proclaimed Facebook co-owner Paul Ceglia, he had evaded federal monitoring by cutting off his electronic ankle bracelet in March 2015.

When we last heard about self-proclaimed Facebook co-owner Paul Ceglia, he had evaded federal monitoring by cutting off his electronic ankle bracelet in March 2015.

Ceglia’s whereabouts are still unknown, but he resurfaced earlier this month via four emails to Bloomberg, in which he said he and his family are alive and well, and he fled because he feared for his life.

Ceglia said in his emails to Bloomberg that he and his family are alive and well, quoting the theme song from late 1970s and early 1980s TV show WKRP in Cincinnati at one point and saying he was “living in the air in Cincinnati.” He wrote:

Everyone including our dog is happy and in good health. It has been a difficult and scary year for Iasia and I, but faith in God has seen us through and a determination to get justice has inspired me to keep going.

Ceglia wrote that he applied for asylum in a foreign country he did not specify, adding that he has a “regular job” and hopes to begin buying and selling houses soon in an effort to increase his income.

As for his reasons for fleeing, Ceglia wrote that he did so due to a “very credible” threat that he would be arrested on new charges, jailed and killed before the trial, adding that the new trial would have exposed the involvement of In-Q-Tel, the venture-capital arm of the CIA, in Facebook. He added:

I felt I had no one in government I could trust. An opportunity presented itself, so I MacGyver’d (another 1980s TV reference) some things together and started running for my life.

Some of your readers may surely think my lawsuit against Facebook was bogus, but if they consider themselves Americans, then they should defend to the death my right under the Constitution of the United States to have a jury.

For those not familiar with the bizarre story of Ceglia and his ill-fated lawsuit against Facebook and its co-founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, a timeline follows:

Despite all of the events outlined above, one of Ceglia’s current lawyers, Robert Ross Fogg, told Bloomberg that Ceglia’s case against Facebook and Zuckerberg was going well before he disappeared, saying:

It is truly a relief to know that Paul and his family are alive, safe and in comparably good health. I am comforted to know that his disappearance was of his own volition.

To win this case, I need him home.
