equitable tolling purposes or, even if he did adduce such evidence, this alleged mental
incompetence prevented him from timely pursuing his claims;
The Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (ECF Doc. No. 1) is DENIED with
prejudice and DISMISSED without an evidentiary hearing;
There is no probable cause to issue a certificate of appealability; and,
The Clerk of Court shall CLOSE this case.
