Did You Know There was a Real “Popeye” Doyle?

Jack “Popeye” Doyle (May 7, 1932 – February 26, 2013)

Sometimes, the obvious stares you right in the face and you choose to be blind to it. By all accounts, Jimmy “Popeye” Doyle’s character was based on Eddie Egan, a real NYPD detective. But was it, really?

Doyle, if he did read the autopsy report, may have been pressured or perhaps paid to disregard the mention of Tuinal since it would have muddied Dr. Luke’s official cause of death. Regarding payment, recall that Doyle somehow, despite earning only a detective’s salary, had enough money to open a restaurant shortly after his retirement without a pension from the police force.

I’m not intending to cast aspersions of ex-detective Jack “Popeye” Doyle‘s good character, but the question of turning a blind eye to Kilgallen’s ‘strange’ death is something that needs exploring.

This chart is totally speculative. But, even so, there is a hint at ‘something’ not being quite right.

Saturn Inconjunct Neptune

This aspect is strongest when either of these planets is also conjunct or opposition the Ascendant or Midheaven. It can a variety of effects, one of which may be difficulty in relating fantasy and imagination, on one hand, to reality, duty, obligation and work, on the other. Usually the reality, duty and work aspect of the combination is dominant, at least at first. Your imaginative side tends to be transformed into nervousness, fear and irrational anxieties. The most negative manifestation of this aspect is a feeling that you have to keep a tight lid on yourself and that if you look inside yourself too closely, you will find only emptiness and disintegration. It is difficult for you to realize that this is not the truth about your inner self.

It is only when you compare Doyle’s birth chart with Kilgallen’s death chart that you see what might have been a hidden agenda. There is a triple interactive Yod pointing at the Mercury/Uranus/Midheaven conjunction in Doyle’s chart formed from inconjuncts to Kilgallen’s ‘fatal’ Sun/Neptune conjunction and her ‘fatal’ Uranus/Pluto conjunction. Is that enough ‘proof’ to suggest that Doyle was ‘bought off’? Hmm, I wonder.

Did Dorothy Kilgallen’s Probe of JFK’s Assassination Lead to Her Death?

    A friend of mine suggested that Warner Bros had to pay off the real “Popeye” Doyle when the NYPD sent a written complaint about the use of his name in “The French Connection”. That would explain where he got his Florida restaurant seed money, So nothing suspicious, then.
