Very early this morning–like 3:30 am early, I woke up to the sound of my iPhone telling me I had messages and emails. I very briefly checked all of them. One was a very interesting email from a person who is writing a book about Fox Island. I quickly scanned it and vowed to reread it carefully later in the morning after more sleep. I do remember the person wrote that “they” are reading everything [FBI? Others who are not law enforcement?], but that she was writing me at this point anyway. Sounds like the book is close to publication.
Her email was coherent, well-written, and made sense. Quite a few of the emails I receive do not fall into those categories–at all. The part about “they” did not unduly surprise me, as we and others who have become involved along the way, have had similar experiences with computer and phone disruption, some of us at very similar times. Here’s what sucks: I get up this morning to reread that email and it is gone. Not in my trash, not in some weird folder. Couldn’t find it on my phone or computer using the search terms “Fox Island,” which appeared numerous times in the body of the email. GONE.
I need the person who sent me that email in the early morning hours today to resend that email, but more importantly to know that your email, complete with acknowledgement that someone/some entity would follow and read it, disappeared from my server. COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. I don’t have your name. I will never again make the mistake of not printing such an email immediately. PLEASE RESEND YOUR EMAIL IF YOU CAN AND MAKE SURE YOU COPY IT TO OTHERS AS WELL.
Some of you who follow my blog and have commented in the past know what I am talking about. Phone disruptions, computer hacking. Even if this was law enforcement at some level, these are the kind of agencies and people who look first and get a search warrant second (or never). Long ago, when some of us were communicating on a different platform, we all experienced similar disruptions to cell and computer service.
Sound paranoid? It’s kind of justified. Just ask anyone who tried to look into the Franklin Scandal/Conspiracy. And I know just those three words “FRANKLIN CONSPIRACY/SCANDAL” will cause a big uptick in my stats tonight. Even from Belgium. Those Franklin guys got busted–sort of. No one involved in the horror on Fox Island ever did. Money can talk and money can shut people up. As strange as it sounds, however, the lid is starting to creak and bubble. There are a lot of people who have this on their radar all over the country and you can’t kill everybody or beat them all and toss them in psychiatric wards. You have a lot to lose, but you can’t hang on forever. You might outlast some more of us, but you can’t outlast everyone and you can’t deny the truth. No one foresaw DNA testing or the internet back in 1976-1978. You haven’t lost much sleep over this, I’m sure, but maybe you can start waking up at 3:30 am to think about this shit and where it’s going to lead. That would be only fair. You’ve had a 40-plus year reprieve.
It made me think back to an email I received from a person about a month ago, not a person who has not been previously involved but who has clearly done some interesting research, which stated, among other things:
I contacted you last year about suspicions that OCCK had mafia connections. During that time, I was hit with a DDOS attack and my iPhone was hit too. Those were weird times, and I was getting paranoid. My apologies.
Since our emails last year, I learned about . . .
Appeals of this nature are very hard to pursue due to the rigors and parameters of appellate law. Good for my Dad for pursuing it nevertheless. The legal system, the judicial system, media all involve being revictimized if you dare to stick your toe in the water. I hate that I am almost 60 years old and still expect people to do the right thing. There is one investigator who is still working the case. There are authors who are documenting what has been discovered. What we really need is a REAL investigative reporter who will pull all of this together. No short cuts, no biases, no other agenda, no deference to prosecutors and corrupt agencies like the MSP and the FBI. My Dad is right. The legal system dropped (and/or hid) the ball and made it impossible for current-day investigations to succeed. True investigative reporting can lay this all bare. The case will never be “solved” in the traditional sense (unless there is some miraculous DNA hit, which is still possible but unlikely). But it can be resolved. And those who participated in cover ups, Dirty Harry dealings and keeping a lid on mis and malfeasance will be revealed. What is concealed can be revealed. Some are banking on dropping dead before the curtain is pulled back. Some are already gone; we’ll see how your gamble works. L. Brooks Patterson, Richard Thompson, Jessica Cooper, Larry Wasser, Jane Burgess, Ray Anger, James Vincent Gunnells, Charles Busch and others. You’ve gotten really lucky so far. But you don’t deserve it and you know it. Rationalization abounds on all fronts. Shame on all of you.
