Another Peter Thiel Kept Boy Dead after falling from a balcony?

Zachary Benton Guy (@iamzacbenton) died three weeks ago 3/16/24 at the age of 26 after falling from a balcony in Miami. There are unverified reports that Zac was another one of Peter’s kept boys. Zac’s death comes almost exactly one year after Thiel’s boyfriend Jeff Thomas fell to his death from a Miami high rise. Zac lived in LA starting in 2017 and socialized with Peter’s circle before to Miami. If anyone knows further details about Zac’s possible relationship with Thiel please share.

His TikTok uses the hashtag starseeds:

[quote]Steiger described "Star People" in his 1976 book on contactees as "humans who come from a special gene pool linked to visits by extraterrestrials". They claim to channel human lifeforms and suffer helplessness and total amnesia concerning their identity, origins and life-purpose. The awakening process claimed to be experienced is described as either a gradual series of realizations over time, or an abrupt and dramatic awakening of consciousness. Through the awakening process, they regain memories about their past, origins and missions.

If this whore had been in a relationship with her, this would have been a huge scandal in the media.

As well as the balcony story, the idea that he's linked to Thiel is something OP has said with zero evidence. The only link anyone has come up with is that Guy followed Jeff Thomas on IG. You could argue that suggests he wasn't linked to Thiel, as I doubt he'd be happy with one of his boys following the dead ex.

So unless OP is ever going to return with some kind of source for those claims, we really should just assume that this was just a regular whore who died, with no balconies involved.

The Miami Police homicide unit has verified that Zac fell from a balcony on 3/16 and a witness reported observing his fall past her own balcony, narrowly avoiding impact. MPD initially classified Zac's death as a suicide but the ruling is preliminary and subject to revision. Despite claims made by close friends of Jeff Thomas about Zac's alleged involvement in a kept relationship with Thiel, there is no substantiating evidence to corroborate those claims… at least not as of yet. 🔎

This isn't gossip though, it's just bullshit. OP is clearly full of shit, and so are you. Even the most basic gossiper can at least say where they got their gossip from, not bullshit like "certain circles".

And again, it's not defending Thiel to point out that OP made up the kept boy element and the balcony element. You don't find it odd that there are no local media reports at all of someone falling from a balcony on that date? What, that happens so often in Miami that the local press just don't cover it? You don't find it odd that OP posted a bullshit claim that Miami PD confirmed the death when they have done nothing of the sort?

Go check my post history in the thread about the new Fire Island or the druggie Olympics and you'll see I can't stand Thiel. And as for Clooney, as a matter of fact I have criticised those posters, pointing out how if the board were filled with "PR fixers" as they claim, then they'd have had Muriel delete the threads long ago. Do you speak up? Or do you just shrug your shoulders and say "well it's gossip on a gossip board, I can't oppose that"?

And by the way, you're pretty high and mighty about Thiel when you also claim to be in the same "certain circles" as him, so much so that you know all about which boys are his or not. And also, once again, you say you're part of these circles and yet had never heard of this guy - so by using your own claims, that shows he was never a Thiel boy.

Poor guy r118, from this video alone I could see that he was troubled. Yes, his singing is terrible because he needs lessons and doesn't appear to have much of a voice. Peter T likes hot guys that look slighlty imperfect. Poor Zac just seems average in motion. He knows how to shoot a photo but he does. not present as his instagram (calling card?) presents.

He seemed desperate for attention so I'm sure doing the escort shuffle was emotionally taxing. I doubt the Johns wanted to hear him sing. I hope he's now at peace but it's such a shame he didn't stick it out. So much to see and do in life. If he was pushed over, I hope the person or people are brought to justice.
