Polygraphed, as agreed to in October 2009

Hastings did show up for a polygraph in Georgia as he agreed to do. The interview was August 2009 and the polygraph took place in October 2009. Thank you to a reader who found the relevant pages in the FOIA documents.

The polygraphs were apparently in connection to his possible involvement in the killings of Mark (document says “Douglas,” Mark’s middle name), Jill and Kristine. Because he was polygraphed in 1992 in connection with Tim’s murder (only), they did not polygraph him in 2009 with regard to Tim again.

The questions asked and the results have been redacted. I can only conclude that John Hastings passed these polygraphs in 2009 or that the results were inconclusive. I believe Helen Dagner’s website listed these results as “inconclusive,” but there is no basis I can see in these particular files for that conclusion. If I find other notations to the contrary, I will post.

There is also a notation that John called the Georgia State trooper who polygraphed him saying he wanted to talk again about one of the questions. It seemed to relate to his reading of one of the books about these crimes.

So I don’t know if this series of polygraph questions established whether or not John Hastings knew Chris Busch. It would seem that because the police moved on, they were convinced the two, who lived a short distance from each other, were basically the same age, and were both working in the restaurant industry, did not. It is a good sign for him that he showed up for these polygraphs, as he had agreed to in the police interview. I can’t deny that.

    This is interesting stuff Cathy. I always feel that Hastings had some involvement in the OCCK Killings. He lived so close to Busch and from what i read he knew things that were not reported to the public in the 90’s. I wish you could get Gunnells, Sloan and Hastings in a police room with Sodium Pentathol. All the best to you and your family, be well.

    On page 16 of BLK BINDER 31 it states that BLANK (Hastings) works as a limo driver in Atlanra. Doesn’t one of Busch’s brothers or cousins own a limo company?

      Only one of Busch’s brothers is still alive. Don’t think he owns a limo company. Retired auto exec.

        Somewhere in your docs there is an interview with Someone who states that he owns a limo company and I’m pretty sure he says it operated in or near Hartsfield Airport in Atlanta. Read it yesterday.

    On page 18 it says Mr. King turned over some material related to Astrology. Really? Please explain what that was.

      No idea. Probably sent to him and he forwarded to LE. Hundreds and hundreds of contacts over the decades, sent to family members who are supposed to do what with it?????? Many of these notations and items just have to speak for themselves.
