Did you live in the area in 1995 when Jerry Keiper was killed? He was a brilliant mathematician at Wolfram who refused to take more than a small salary because he didn't want to pay taxes toward the U.S. military.
He was cycling up Prospect Avenue in Champaign when an old guy with bad vision ran Jerry over. The old guy didn't even stop because he thought he just hit a bump in the road or something.
