The Life of Dan Burroughs
Loretta Burroughs informed friends and family in August 2007 that Danny had abandoned her, taking another woman with Florida plates away in his yellow Hummer.
She relocated several times before finally landing in Ventnor where police discovered her husband’s remains and she would later sell the home where they were discovered.
Early Life and Education
Daniel Burroughs was born in Sheldon Texas before moving with his family to Delaware County Pennsylvania and eventually having two children: Dan Jr and Carolyn.
Through his lifetime, Washington was involved in various drugs and spent time in jail. Additionally, he served in military service, taking part in battles such as that at Saratoga in 1777 which saw British General Burgoyne surrender to Washington’s forces.
Burroughs wrote several novels during his later years that focused on drug use and supernatural phenomena, greatly impacting the Beat Generation and still referenced today. Not limited to writing, Burroughs was also an artist – his avant garde works were featured in Nomad journal in early 1960s, along with a book of dreams published during this time.
Dan is attentive and thorough when it comes to handling client matters, and always seeks to gain a fuller understanding of all aspects of their cases. He forms meaningful relationships and finds innovative solutions with each of his clients.
Loretta divorced Danny shortly after he vanished, telling her family that she had left him for someone younger in Florida. Additionally, she sold their home and relocated to Ventnor.
Crown prosecutor Shivani Dayal stated Burroughs did not show any remorse and presented a high risk to society. She will become eligible for parole in 2035. Currently being held in a secure facility protected by electronic monitoring and is prohibited from contact with her children and social media, she must serve at least 55 years before parole may be considered.
Achievement and Honors
Burroughs returned from injury ready to take back his world championship. He won the 2017 157 lbs World Championship by defeating Augusto Midana, Rashid Kurbanov, Zelimkhan Khadjiev and Khetag Tsargush.
At the NCAA championships, he earned two dual wins and the tournament crown. Cornell’s Jordan Leen gave him some trouble, but he majored him and Oklahoma’s Tyler Caldwell gave him enough breathing room in their semifinal bouts to advance all the way to the final.
Other achievements from this period of his work include winning two teaching awards: 2022 Texas A&M Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Teaching and 2020 McGraw-Hill ALEKS All-Star Educator of the Year. Additionally, he has published various experimental works, such as his collaboration with Brion Gysin. Furthermore, his works on drugs, homosexuality and death have received widespread acclaim.
Burroughs was most prolific during this time period as a writer; producing Junkie, Queer, and Naked Lunch among many other works. This period also saw his interest in multimedia forms like sound recording and film making expand greatly.
Loretta told everyone who asked that after his disappearance in August 2007, he ran off with someone from Florida, leaving all his possessions behind. But his devastated daughter did not believe this explanation.
Authorities searched Loretta’s house and found his remains hidden away in a closet, dismembered and packed into plastic containers. Loretta is now serving time at Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women in Clinton, New Jersey; prior convictions included embezzlement and theft charges in New Jersey.
Burroughs was widely recognized as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century despite his controversial death, as his works were frequently referenced by authors like Dennis Cooper and Poppy Z Brite; their themes of drugs, homosexuality and death continue to resonate in modern society.
After graduating college, he began writing freelance articles for various publications before eventually landing a journalist position with The Wall Street Journal and eventually winning numerous awards and recognitions throughout his career. Alongside journalism, he also competed in freestyle wrestling tournaments where he amassed numerous medals en route to four world championship titles.
Dan has been married to Loretta for over 20 years. Together they share one child and reside in Sicklerville, New Jersey. Additionally, he enjoys running marathons and reading books about history.
