In The Franklin Cover-Up
, John DeCamp lists over a dozen suspicious deaths purportedly linked to Franklin. Some are clear-cut, like Gary Caradori and the siblings of Alisha Owen and Troy Boner. Other are harder to confirm, but the murder of Harmon Tucker is unique because it occurred quite far from Omaha in Valdosta GA, seemingly home to a powerbroker pedophile ring of its own similar to Franklin
. Tucker was a school administrator in Council Bluffs IA, and allegedly an abuser in the Franklin ring. He disappeared from Omaha in late October 1988, and then turned up on hunting grounds in Georgia shot in the head. The arrested (and ultimately convicted) suspect was Walter G. Ellis, who traveled with Tucker to Georgia and killed him for unclear reasons.
A couple days ago, I received the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) report on Tucker's death: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nwmBt ... TVUgSeTm92
I haven't read all of it in detail, but it seems to have some noteworthy details, like Tucker's previous arrest for masturbating in a public bathroom, and Ellis (whose words are certainly dubious) claiming that Tucker made sexual advances on him, as well as insinuating Tucker was a pedophile, and making reference to serial killer Richard Speck (who features in Dave McGowan's work on serial killers)
: Graphic photos of Tucker are at the end of the document.
I've been thinking about it a bit more, and the Richard Speck mention has an odd parallel elsewhere in parapolitics. According to the GBI document:
p.84 of the GBI report wrote:TROOPER HARTUNG stated that during the interview with MR. ELLIS, MR. ELLIS kept referring to RICHARD SPECK who is a convicted mass murderer.
Sirhan Sirhan, the purported "lone nut" assassin of Robert F. Kennedy, acted similarly with respect to Albert DeSalvo, who took the rap for the "Boston Strangler" serial killings:
Mel Ayton, The Forgotten Terrorist, p.180 wrote:
Sirhan had been recorded on tape at Ramparts Police Station, following his arrest, and the tapes revealed that he was lucid, clear, and articulate at the time. He even refused to give his name but was willing to engage in conversation with police officers about other matters. Sirhan talked about Albert DeSalvo and said the killer's methods were "really cool".
Mel Ayton, whose book is a disinformational work supporting the lone nut theory, goes on to claim that Sirhan Sirhan "could not have failed" to hear of Albert DeSalvo. But Sirhan himself told RFK assassination researchers John Christian and William Turner
that he didn't know who DeSalvo was. The reason they asked Sirhan were because of a repeated phrase in his diaries: "Di Salvo". With multiple doctors who examined Sirhan concluding that he had been hypnotized to fire at Kennedy, Christian and Turner went searching for Sirhan's hypno-programmer, and "Di Salvo" was a clue that led them to the likely culprit: William Joseph Bryan. Bryan was notoriously boastful, but refused to discuss Sirhan, throwing a journalist out of his office when she asked him. Eventually, Christian and Turner made contact with two prostitutes who serviced Bryan, saying that he bragged about hypnotizing Sirhan.
Dr. Bryan's earlier claim to fame was extracting the Boston Strangler confessions from Albert DeSalvo under hypnosis. In reality, as Susan Kelly's book The Boston Stranglers
argues, there were far more compelling suspects than DeSalvo, no witnesses could identify him, and he got many details of the crimes wrong in his "confessions". DNA tests also exonerated DeSalvo in one murder
in 2001, though inexplicably, a later test in 2013 was said to link him to the crime. Dave McGowan writes about Bryan's role in inducing DeSalvo's confessions:
Dave McGowan, Programmed to Kill, p.277 wrote:[F. Lee] Bailey promptly contacted John Donovan and obtained classified information on the case, purportedly to check the veracity of Albert’s confessions, though it appears that the details of the murders were in fact fed to DeSalvo by Bailey and Nassar—with assistance from CIA-connected hypnotist William Jennings Bryan III,35 who was brought onboard by Bailey on the spring equinox. Bryan’s ‘questions’ to DeSalvo while under hypnosis were loaded with incriminating details of the crimes. The ‘confessions’ that resulted from this collaboration between Bailey, Nassar and Bryan, using information supplied by Donovan, were taped by Bailey and turned over to the police. They were, to put it bluntly, blatantly fraudulent.
As John Christian and William Turner point out, Dr. Bryan had the propensity to brag about his work hypnotizing DeSalvo. They theorize that he brought it up while Sirhan was in a trance and it slipped into his subconscious mind, leading to his diary entry and mention of DeSalvo to the LAPD despite later denying he knew who DeSalvo was.
With Walter Gerald Ellis two decades later, we have another murder suspect constantly bringing up the name of a notorious serial killer, this time Richard Speck. It should be noted that Speck's crime -- breaking into a home, tying up 9 women, and systematically executing all but one of them -- bears absolutely no resemblance to Ellis' crime of driving Harmon Tucker from Iowa to Georgia before shooting him. So why bring up Speck at all? Could Ellis have interacted with a person or group who formerly had some involvement with Speck, just as Bryan hypnotized both DeSalvo and Sirhan?
After all, McGowan said about Richard Speck (emphasis added):
Dave McGowan Programmed to Kill, p.118 wrote:And what of Speck? He was likely little more than a patsy or fall-guy who may have been involved to some extent in the killings, but he certainly was not the sole assailant. And he might not have been in the house at all that night. He had no memory of ever leaving the bar that he had been drinking in earlier that evening, but he did remember receiving an injection from a man he did not know. There is no question that Speck was drinking in a bar that night; a number of witnesses placed him there, though most were unsure of when Speck had left. Two of the witnesses though, a husband and wife, placed him at the bar during at least a portion of the timeframe when the killings occurred. These witnesses were neither friends nor acquaintances of the accused, and they had no known reason to provide Speck with a false alibi.
