Tim Cunningham

An epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Chamblee, Ga. went missing after leaving work sick two weeks ago. Days earlier, he was told he would not receive a promotion. Cunningham has not been seen since Feb. 12.

Timothy Cunningham, 35, was a graduate of Morehouse who earned two degrees from Harvard. He was disappointed after being passed over for a promotion. Friends told police Cunningham had expected to be promoted.

After he came in to work on Feb. 12, he was called into his manager's office and told he would not get the promotion he was up for.

He came into work on Feb. 6 and 7, but he called in sick on Feb. 8 and 9, according to ABC News.

On Monday, Feb. 12, he went to work but left early, saying he wasn't feeling well.

Cunningham's parents were concerned about his behavior in the days leading up to his disappearance. His parents knew something was wrong when they exchanged a series of text messages with him on Feb. 11.

"As a parent, you have indicators when things are just not right with your child, and that was the case," his father Terrell Cunningham said.

On the day Cunningham went missing, he sent his mother, Tia-Juana Cunningham, a text message at 5:21 a.m. "Are you awake," he asked in the text. But her phone was on silent mode. "I wish I had that opportunity to answer that text," she said.

Alarmed after not hearing from their son, his parents drove from their Maryland home to Georgia. They let themselves into his home and found his beloved dog, Mr. Bojangles. They also located Cunningham's keys, cellphone and wallet containing his identification and credit cards. His car was parked outside. Two upstairs windows were left open.

Cunningham's family said he would never abandon his dog or his job.

"Tim is the consummate professional. He loves his job. He wouldn't just cast it aside. He's worked hard to get where he is," his brother Anterio Cunningham said.

"Not having his phone, leaving his dog Bo alone, he just wouldn't voluntarily check out like that," Anterio said.

Terrell Cunningham disputed an Internet rumor that Tim warned that the flu shot was responsible for this season's deadly flu.

"It is a lie," said Terrell. "It is not factual. Hopefully, he'll come back and be able to address that."

Neighbor Chris Torry told WAGA of an odd exchange between him and Cunningham.

"My wife and him and swapped phone numbers. Saturday, Tim called over to me from across the way and told me to take his number out of her phone," he told the station. "It seemed a bit strange."

Torry did not elaborate.

The CDC released a statement last week calling Cunningham "a highly respected member of our CDC family."

"This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances," Maj. Michael O'Connor of the Atlanta Police told reporters Tuesday. He said police do not suspect foul play.

Cunningham's family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Cunningham's whereabouts.


  • Marlika

    **Off topic** But why his mama name is Tia-Juana? ??????

    Okay back to the story. It’s sad that he’s still missing. I don’t know what to think, I’m hoping he’s still alive and okay. I feel if he where white they would put more effort into finding him. ??

  • Wellbalancedlibra

    I don't think this particular story has anything to do with race. This dude was probably going to be a whistleblower.

  • pure_rachet

    Why is his dog named Mr. Bojangles? All parts of this story are weird. Maybe he caught the flu? But hope he returns safe nonetheless.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Hope he’s found safe. This lady on Maury named her daughter Tia Wanna. Must be a popular name.

  • marquise0691

    The government killed this man, they must've thought since he didnt get his promotion that he would go out and blab about all the experiments and what not that they have planned. He probably told the neighbors to get rid of his number because he didnt want "the people" coming after them

  • Rayne

    I hope he is found alive.

  • Marlika

    Regardless he would be alive if he were white. I forget the name of the white guy who released top secrets classified documents to the public and fled to Russia. He’s still alive and his family goes back forth to see him. If they wanted him dead he would be by now.

  • SpillyNillie

    Sounds like Wormwood...

  • Kemi

    Something is amiss here. Sounds like he knew too much pertaining to the govt and thought his phone calls/messages were been intercepted/monitored. I hope it ends well but doesn’t seem so.

  • Desiree Edwards

    I pray he didn't take his life. When someone leaves a dog, and a cell phone behind it is not a good sign. Praying for him and his family.

  • vicci

    He made some comments about the flu shot being suspect?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Edward Snowden.

    That nig has been dead for a minute.

    After he finished giving up his secrets Putin probably personally offed him to make sure he didn't return to the States and let our intelligence community know the secrets he gave Russia.

  • shun king

    didnt get promotion so he killed himself happens all the time

  • vicci

    I think so too. The flu shot
    Is bread and butter. Every year its sold. Billion dollar biz and he said its CAUSING the deadliest outbreak. Whew. Somebody pray.

  • Marlika

    When did this fool die? And if he is dead he lived a lot longer than he should have.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I saw where ppl have been putting up posters. I saw this at Kroger

  • SpillyNillie

    He just wondered off to the nearest lake?

  • Marlika

    That’s a cute name for a dog?

  • SpillyNillie

    He's not dead...according to the innanet

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't know when he died but I believe that he is dead.
    He talked too much and wasn't loyal. Two traits that make a bad spy.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.
    Dude they can take a clip of you speaking an create an entire fake speech.
    We are living in dark times.

  • Marlika

    That’s what I was just looking up. He might be dead and they just ain’t saying anything.?? At this point who’s really checking on him besides his family.?????

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He was only 35.
    There was no need to do that.

  • hottlanta

    I didn't it is Eric Snowden. Folks still use him as an advisor. Ain't that a bytch got an app and everything. When his high school drop out azz left he said if he is found dead it would be Obamas fault. He was trying to show how he government spy on people if they were doing their job so well he would have never been able to get away with it the way he did. If his plane come within so many feet of the U.S. he is done. He even had the nerve to try to chime in on the Russian investigation. Now things have gotten hot he has shut up.

  • RespectSelf

    This does seem pretty odd... Plot twist... he really did get a promotion that required him to go off the grid to work on something top secret lol. Yo these movies + the popularity in being a conspiracy theorist can have you coming up with all types of stuff.

    I do hope that he is alright and that his family finds out some much needed answers.

  • SpillyNillie

    From the Daily Beast (2.2.18)

    "Edward Snowden spoke out this week against the process in which House Republicans sought to release a memo full of classified government information."

    He's Tweeting and giving in-person speeches...

  • Marlika

    The news hasnt covered anything about him in a while. His family has been quiet. ??? Maybe they’re all dead. ??????

  • SpillyNillie

    He's very much alive and well...

  • Ni Ni

    Not good at all. l bet that job was very stressful and he probably had to deal with a bunch of low down, dirty, backstabbing yts and their superiority complex preventing him from getting the promotion,

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The Russians?

    The Russians?

  • Marlika

    When I was interested in the FBI I was told that you can be shipped off on an assignment at anytime and that you can’t let anyone know. Not even your own family. They female agent told me it’s better to go in single with no family.

    Maybe this is the case with him. He was sent off on an assignment and could say anything about it. ??????????

  • Yoni7

    My brother was 31 when he committed suicide. It can happen at any age.

  • Conscience

    Many people died after getting flu shots !! One plus one equals what ????

  • Yoni7

    I hope I'm not next. I make comments about the flu shot all the time here at work. I have been escorted down to Employee Health to get my vaccination. It's either that or lose my job.

  • Yoni7

    I pray so too.

  • Coy little wink

    That's not true...do more research

  • hottlanta

    He probably got depressed after he learned he didn't get the promotion
    and saw what his superiors telling him was straight up BS. I know
    this happened an engineer I knew, Smart as a whip will train people
    and the people would be his boss. He had gotten enough of it and had
    a nervous breakdown. He bought into what our parents always tell us.
    Work your azz off be smart do the right thing, don't cause trouble
    etc, etc. He got tired of trying to pretend things at work were okay
    when it wasn't. Probably afraid if he complain about things at work
    folks would say just grin and bear it. You oughta be grateful for
    that good govment job. Then we teach men to man up and don't show
    any emotion. He was probably afraid if he said something about the
    unfair promotion he would be labeled as a trouble maker/insubordinate
    and loose his job. This happens to our intelligent brothers everyday
    and no one wants to talk about it. He got tired of walking the fine
    line and snapped. I know how he feels. You werk your azz off/don't
    cause not trouble but when it comes to promotions and money they look
    at you like you are crazy but everyone else is getting theirs. He probably is feeling I did all of this work for nothing. Tired of being taken for granted and said I am out of here.

  • hottlanta

    Lil Hots cousin shot himself in the head at 21.

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    I hope he didn't off himself.

  • Yardgirl

    100% TRUTH!!

  • JRock

    This missing person's story is so bizarre. I wonder what really happened to him. I have heard the crazy stories about he was a whistle-blower and got knocked off. Then I heard that he took his own life because he was passed over for a promotion. Both of those stories are reaching. Then there was the story about the neighbor that said he told him to tell his wife to delete his number from her cell. Was he creeping with his neighbor's wife and then did the neighbor enter through the opened windows and off him? Hope he is found safe. If it's stress that made him check out for a minute he should get a psyche eval. Still hope he's found alive.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The suicide premise was that he committed suicide because he didn't get a promotion.

    This guy was very young and would have had many opportunities in the future to advance his career.

  • Quitedeliteful

    internet rumor that Tim warned that the flu shot was responsible for this season’s deadly flu
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    He worked for the CDC and possibly went against Big Pharma.That alone is enough to get you removed from the planet. If he did speak out against their drug and it being responsible for so many people dying, he would damn sure be a target for assassination.

  • Kemi

    Exactly! There are conspiracy theories surrounding this case. But your statement seem plausible. It’s strange for him to leave everything and not be seen again.

  • Guesty

    I’m also thinking suicide or a setup.

  • Guesty

    Sound like being forced against your will. This is how the mark of the beast will be implemented.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I wish I had a job that I loved.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's beyond strange that a man would leave his keys, his wallet, and his cellphone behind.... and to also disappear leaving his dog locked up (and presumably unfed?) in the house.
    I'm hoping for this best in this situation, but I fear the worst.

  • Jaclyn2016

    I wonder of he paid for a lyft or an Uber? He had to leave home by some means of transportation.

  • justlooking

    Maybe he found Wakanda, send us directions bruh

    I'mma joke until I know otherwise.

    This mess happens in govt all the time...ive seen so many qualified people overlooked including myself for jobs. Sometimes I feel like it's an Atlanta thing but I think it's on a larger scale

  • hottlanta

    His type of job is not posted LinkedIn/Monster/CareerBuilder or Indeed.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I wanted to be an agent so bad when I first started undergrad that went downhill quick after I realized they did an extensive background check smh...

  • Lady_Elle

    I agree.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    omg like a Danielle Steele novel.. Can someone give me the eff ending.

  • hottlanta

    It pisses me off to see qualified people get passed over for jobs and we got the Barum & Bailey Circus in the White House with no experience, bad credit and no security clearance. But black people have been conditioned that the govment job is the best job out there when you got a lot of private sector jobs with better benefits and pay. Oh girl left Mueller to go to the private sector for better pay and benefits. She got a private sector benefit package out of this world. I had to leave a job because of that. Talking bout I have reached the glass ceiling for a raise but giving themselves a 18% raise. Watching the news last night of some folks giving themselves a 59% raise while other employees get nothing. I was like really. I am like Monique we all got a price. You get yours and I want mine's.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go sit down, Just! Go. Sit. Down. LOL!!!

    With his credentials he could have gotten a job at any college or he could have learned French, Italian or Spanish, gotten a passport and moved to Europe.

    Except Mo only supports herself, but whatever.

  • 1BlueStar

    I was thinking THE same thing! "Tia-Juana"?? for real??

  • Ghost

    I don't think he will be found...I believe his family knows more then they are willing to share right now. Hoping he will be found..but i doubt it. Praying for his family..this has got to be hard.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lol...you just done made your own story up huh? You went off though ?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    People don’t just up and disappear I’m no conspiracy theorist but the whole story of him advising on the flu epidemic is believable ????? I hope they find this young man alive and well. This is very scary

  • hottlanta

    Talking about depression in black men is not a made up story. I have seen it first hand. We don't talk about it enough.

  • hottlanta

    I went and saw Black Panther. Yall me all going to see it and to get moist for Michael and the other guy. Yall didn't tell me bout them Q dogs. I was like lawd have mercy. Don't ever leave out important details like that.

  • Dahl

    I had to pause at his mom being named Tiajuana...?

  • i troll it like i see it

    Prayed for his return and I know his parents are in agony, but I don't think he's coming home sadly.

  • LeXx

    This man was speaking out against certain things being done to the general population with the Flu Epidemic ..."THEY" have him and unfortunately we will hear a report of him being found "dead" ...

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    So sad, I truly believe that the government has him. They dont like the fact he was telling the truth. I hope I am wrong and God sends him back in the arms of his parents.

  • ShWa

    Really reallystrange, I pray that his family finds out soon what happened to him.

    Our family has been here. No fun not knowing if it's foul play, who was with them last, etc. A whole human goes missing and no answers will keep you up many a nights.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    It's funny you say this. I found it odd to go onto different family members SM and all of their layout is pretty much the same. A few pics and you can't see their friends. Hmmmm. Ok, what y'all know that we don't know y'all know?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    What were you hiding? I remember you, I was assigned your application. YOu still have a chance. Now...tell me everything.

  • Oya Shango

    He was just promoted to commander last August. That is why I do not believe that the issue was promotion. He hadn't been there long enough to be upset about being passed over. I think his disappearance has absolutely nothing to do with his job. He was stressing over something personal. info that only he and his family knows. It was probably related to the state of his own health. In time, more will leak. I also do not think that he will be found alive. He clearly planned not to return.

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? Kari ?????????

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Why is this educated man working for white devils who create “vaccines” and medicines to poison us.

    Even with several prestigious degrees we will never get the recognition we deserve.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Where’s the body then?

  • samuel severino

    98% of the people that died from the flu this past season took the flu shot and they are keeping that info from people. Would not be surprised if he was warning people.

  • samuel severino

    So many independent news organizations and real testing labs like Natural News have been speaking out against the flu shot and showing how many people died that took the shot. They are heavily suppressing this info and destroying evidence because they make billions when they can get people to take the vaccines.

  • Yoni7

    It's MANDATORY! Mark of the Beast, population control, mass genocide, modern day Holocaust. All of it.

    Whether he did it or not and if so, for whatever reason, we just pray that he didn't.

  • Truth

    Ok, and the US government in carrying out this conspiracy assassination attempt would just leave all his id's around, keys, cars, dogs and just abduct him. The conspiracy crap sounds just as credible as an alien abducting him when he came home.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    BWAH LOLOLOLOL....I was told it was based on my affiliations... during and before the application process...A very close friend of mine has been in the fed prison for over 15 years now and we used to hang together... I got denied literally a month before the feds swooped in on him smh...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But most people would commit suicide inside their own homes, right?

    Why not just shoot or hang yourself? Why go through all of the trouble of going missing?

    It doesn't make sense.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I suspect foul play is involved in his disappearance. Google Kanika Powell unsolved murder. She was also a government worker who may have been a whistle blower. She said a man knocked on her door claiming to be a FBI agent. She was later shot multiple times by a white man using a AR-15.

  • Scorpiess

    No such thing as aliens -

  • Sircaput

    I had read where it was said by him that the flu vaccines was causing all these deaths.

  • McKay

    I thought I was the only one who thought this. Good to know I'm not the only one ...lol

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah I doubt he left his personal effects willingly.

  • jazzysmith12

    exactly.you on point.They will never see us as equal.

  • Yoni7

    There is a forest in China or Japan, where people go to hang themselves. Some people go jump off a bridge or into traffic. Some people use suicide by cop. There is no standard protocol place for people who make the choice to kill themselves. Some just do it where they stand. I wouldn't wish the aftermath of suicide on anyone's family, but until you've lived it, it will NEVER make sense.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But he didn't leave as much as a suicide note but he contacted one of his parents via text.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Awh man, I'm sorry to hear that. I do remember one of the agents speaking at Clark Atlanta University years ago and she assured us that they be all up in your business, ur neighbors, family, etc. I hate reading that you were denied because of knowing someone.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    They found him a month after he went missing, badly decomposed. He had been shot to death by someone he trusted.

    The neighbor even said he told her to lose his number. They fired another docors, Dr neides, about speaking about this vaccine.

  • Oya Shango

    I thought of that too, but learned that he called in sick and stayed home for two days, before he returned back to work. It was when he returned that he left again stating that he didn't feel well. It would be good for his parents to demand the surveillance video of him leaving the CDC to return home; to learn if he was being followed. At best, they could have been waiting for him at his house when he returned, and then "disappeared him." Either way, I seriously doubt if he will be found alive.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope he has amnesia or something and found to be alright but I seriously doubt it...

  • Oya Shango

    I have another "bizarre" theory. I believe that he is a gay man with a very private life. He might have gotten sick, but it was not the flu. It might have been "the package," and him being a epidemiologists knew this. He knew that this discovery would ruin his career or at min relieve him of his current security clearance. His fear of his family learning about his life was also too unbearable for him. It appears that on some level he planned his disappearance, as is evidenced by the message that he left his neighbor's wife, . . . "erase my number from your phone.". . . That is a significant clue that this might not have been foul play, but rather something that he might have planned.

  • Rhondalousey

    Good one.

  • Patricia

    they got that negro locked away in quarantine somewhere on bottom level of that cdc. he caught something serious.

  • Patricia

    YES

  • Oya Shango

    Yep. The police also gave away another coded clue. They publicly stated that they do not believe that there is any foul play involved in his disappearance. Considering that he left his car, his keys, his wallet, his phone, his dog unattended, and two of his house windows wide-open; which under normal circumstances would be considered "foul play or suspicious circumstances." For the police to conclude otherwise is their coded language that he left on his on volition, probably to end his life. The FBI also has not gotten involved in the search. Which is odd for a missing high ranking CDC officer.

  • Rhondalousey

    You should be a detective.

  • Yoni7

    Neither did mine. And my brother contacted several people as well before he did the unthinkable. Told my niece to go pick up his kid's from his sister-in-law's house. Called his kid's mother. Called friend's. The whole nine. There is no standard protocol for suicide. It just isn't.

    This was an argument????? Wow, I never knew. Thanks for cluing me in. In that case, I'll bow out, because I don't "ARGUE" with "men". Sorry you misunderstood.
