Evan Ravitz and Dr. Robert McFarland

Chapter 10, Presumed Guilty by Stephen Singular
In early May, I returned to the Boulder County Jail for another visit with the inmate I had questioned earlier. This time he gave me the names of several people who he claimed were involved in adult or child pornography. Through other sources, I was able to confirm that at least two of these individuals were, in fact, in the possession of extensive child pornography libraries. One of them, a lawyer, had left Boulder a few months prior to the murder. I tracked him down in another state. He denied that he had ever been connected to child pornography, but acknowledged that he knew local people who were. Another Boulder attorney admitted that he had clients who were engaged in child porn, but that he was ethically bound not to reveal their identities. A third person had once had an interest in taking risque photographs of teenagers, but had long since given up this pursuit.
One name in particular, however, was of more interest to me. Political activists in Boulder [Evan Ravitz and Dr. Robert McFarland] had previously identified him as a city employee who had had connections to pornography and perhaps child pornography. According to these sources, a number of years earlier, two municipal workers had found illicit sexual material and erotic toys in this man’s desk [actually a box in his office]. Although female coworkers had previously alleged sexual harassment, none of them had initiated any legal action against him. Eventually, they were assigned to another office. According to city council members, Boulder’s mayor Leslie Durgin, had at first wanted to fire the man, but after consulting with others, had decided not to. The incident was never made public, and the local newspaper, the Daily Camera, while aware of these events, did not carry the story because no one was willing to speak on the record. It was a scandal that never erupted.
 
Following my second meeting with the inmate, I returned to Alex Hunter’s office at the Boulder County Justice Center. After passing along some information about Internet pornography and the names of local people I had been investigating, I brought up the story about the city employee. Hunter appeared taken aback by this, almost alarmed, and he expressed concern that something like this had gone on inside the municipal government. He seemed amazed that anything of this nature could have happened without his knowledge. Twice he asked me if I was talking about the same man whom he had known for many years, although he had not had much interaction with him. Twice I assured him that I was.
"If this got into the hands of certain people in the media," Hunter said, "it would further embarrass Boulder and make the town look worse than it already does. What are you going to do with this information?"
I explained that I was not really concerned with the man’s sexual behavior and had no desire to publicize it unless it was somehow connected to the Ramsey case. What I was concerned with was whether Hunter’s office planned to investigate the pornography leads we recently had been discussing.
I’m personally very interested in this angle," he said, "But we have other priorities. It’s on the list of things to do, but it’s not even close to the top."
It had been very difficult, he said, to get the police to explore leads they did not want to explore, especially those that did not specifically concern the Ramsey family. Moreover, from the start of the case, his relationship with the Bolder Police Department had been shaky. Hunter surprised me by stating that John Eller, the commander in charge of the detectives investigating the murder, was "impossible to work with" in these circumstances. Eller, the D.A. declared, had long focused on only one thing: arresting John and Patsy Ramsey.
"The cops," Hunter said, "regard us as intruders in this situation. That makes everything tougher. I don’t have enough to file a case against the Ramseys. The cops keep bringing me things and saying, ‘How much is enough, how much is enough?’ We’re not there yet."
"Do you thing you’ll get there soon?"
"I just don’t know," he said with a deep frown.
The more I talked to Hunter, the more I saw him as the man in the middle of a huge, multifaceted vise. From one side, the police felt he was not doing his job because he was not ready to bring charges against the Ramseys –and the cops were leaking these sentiments to reporters. From another side, Hal Haddon and his legal juggernaut had absolutely no qualms about publicly flailing Hunter whenever they felt it served their purposes. From yet another side, Hunter was attacked daily on radio and TV shows for his perceived ineptitude (the press kept digging up cases unsuccessfully prosecuted by the D.A.’s office, starting with the murder of Sid Wells, the boyfriend of Robert Redford’s daughter, back in 1983). Finally the general population, through its participation on these talk shows, also viewed Hunter as a weak, ineffectual authority figure who could not get the job done, a job many of them felt was easy to carry out. As time went on, the vise from all sides tightened further around Hunter.
Although Hunter did not complain about his situation to me, I sensed that it was having a very real effect on him. He looked subdued, weighed down. His eyes were furtive, his voice had grown softer. It was almost as if, without even being aware of it, he had spent many years readying himself, or failing to ready himself, for a test that he could never quite have imagined would com. Now it had arrived and he had to muddle his way through it while suffering chastisements from every corner. He had to trust his own instincts and listen to himself rather than the ten thousand other loud voices that knew less than he did but were telling him what to do.
After I gave him the information I had obtained about child pornography and the Internet, Hunter leaned back in his chair and spread a legal pad across his lap, speculating about who had killed JonBenet Ramsey. Once again I was struck by the informality of his behavior and his willingness to share his ideas. He thought some of John Andrew Ramsey’s fraternity brothers at the Chi Psi house at the university of Colorado may have gotten high Christmas night and, during an aborted attempt to kidnap JonBenet and make some easy money, accidentally killed her and then concocted the note as a cover-up.
After laying out this scenario, Hunter looked directly at me, awaiting my response.
For several moments, I said nothing. I was thinking about this unexpected angle. First of all, it didn’t square with any of the current theories about the crime, including one of the very few solid facts in the case: that John Andrew Ramsey had been in Atlanta the night the girl was killed. Second, I had assumed that in the first month after the murder, both the Boulder cops and the scores of reporters covering the case had fully questioned the frat brothers; to my knowledge, no one had learned anything of substance from them. Third, if Hunter’s scenario were accurate, some lesser participant might eventually have talked to and made a deal with the authorities in exchange for immunity from prosecution; that had not happened. Fourth, and most important, Hunter had not delivered this possibility to me with what I took to be real conviction. It almost seemed as if this were hat the D.A. wished had happened to JonBenet.
I wondered if something more was going on in the room, but what could that be?
"The frat boys might have been involved," I said without much enthusiasm. Hunter did not press the matter.
I then asked him if he had ever spoken to Pam Griffin, the local seamstress who, through her work on JonBenet’s pageant dresses, had gotten to know Patsy and her daughter quite well. Hunter said he had not talked to her but indicated that it was also on his list of things to do.
"I think you should call her," I said.

Chapter 20, Presumed Guilty by Stephen Singular
If prosecuting drug cases had always been a sensitive issue in Boulder, pornography and especially child pornography were even more sensitive. Careers could be destroyed and families shattered. Americans who had been exposed for sexual peccadilloes had been known to commit suicide. Our national desire for instant gratification was equaled only by our need to condemn and punish those who actually pursued such things.
One morning I spoke to the employee who had worked for the local government some years earlier, when pornography and sex toys were discovered in his desk [actually a box in his office]. When he agreed to go into therapy, the matter stopped there.
Some Boulderites believed that Mayor Durgin had acted appropriately by giving this man another chance and not humiliating him or taking away his job. The very last thing the city had needed, they said, was the kind of negative publicity that such trouble could have generated. Others felt that by keeping this empl9yee in place – but in a badly compromised position now- the mayor and her allies could wield more power than before. Everyone agreed on one thing: Sex was a very dangerous political subject.
I had not told this man why I was coming to see him, and for twenty minutes or so, we made polite conversation while he reviewed his background and considerable professional achievements. I had heard that he was extremely intelligent, articulate, and proud of what he had accomplished during his long career as a municipal civil servant. I found him to be all of those things, and charming as well. I did not relish the idea of questioning him about the only blemish on his record, but I had heard this story so many times and from so many different people that it was only fair to question him about it myself and give him the chance to respond in private.
When I asked if he had known any of the Ramseys, or ever visited their home, he said that he had never even been aware of the family until the murder. When I asked if he knew any of the Ramseys’ close friends, he also replied no. When I asked if he knew the police detectives working the case, or the attorneys in the D.A.’s office investigating the crime, r some other government employees, he denied having contact with any of these people, before or after the killing. He had lived in Boulder for almost two decades, and his last answer sounded hollow.
When I brought up the paraphernalia that had been found in hi desk he shifted in his chair and turned bright red. Speaking very slowly and carefully, he did not deny the event, but called it "a grotesque violation of my privacy." He repeatedly and emphatically stated that it had had no effect on his performance in office or on any decision he had ever made on the job.
"Some people believe that I was blackmailed back then by those in power in Boulder," he said, "but that ever, ever happened."
Then he asked me what I intended to do with this information about his past.
I said I was not sure
In a subtly pleading tone of voice, he asked me to handle it "with the greatest possible discretion."
"I have a family," he said. "That was a long time ago, and it’s been over for many years. I’m sure you understand."
"Do you know anything," I asked, "about a pornography or child pornography ring operating in or around Boulder?"
He looked at me wide-eyed and said, "Yuuucck!"
"Is that a ‘no’?"
"Yes, it is. I’ve never heard of anything like that. Is that what you’re investigating?"
"Among other things."
"Have you found any evidence of it?"
"Perhaps. You don’t know anyone involved in these kinds of activities?"
"No."
"And you weren’t involved in them yourself?"
"No."
He gazed at me, his cheeks still red. He looked afraid and very vulnerable.
"Absolutely not," he said.
I had accomplished what I set out to. A few minutes later I shook his hand and drove back to Denver, rather impressed by the fact that he had not tried to convince me that the allegation raised against him were totally false. He had essentially confirmed what I had heard about him.
That evening, he called me on the pretense of clarifying a detail he had mentioned about his career. He then brought up the Ramsey case. It was obvious that he wanted to continue our talk. Again he asked me to exercise "great caution" with the information we had discussed and not to cause him any further hurt or embarrassment.
Then he said something unexpected. "Are you suggesting," he asked, "that JonBenet Ramsey was killed during a child pornography session?"
This question surprised me because I had not, in fact, suggested this during our meeting.
"It’s a possibility," I said. "Why?"
"I was just wondering."
"Is it also what you’re thinking?"
"I’ve only thought about it since this morning. No one else has said anything like that to me since this whole thing started."
I hesitated, to see if he would continue.
"I enjoyed speaking with you," he said. "That was the most enlightening conversation I’ve ever had about this case."

TRANSCRIPT OF A PUBLIC AFFAIR
aired 2/15/99 08:35am on KGNU-Boulder

MCFARLAND: This is Bob McFarland with a public affair and my guest this morning is Donald Freed who is an author, screen writer among other things. Donald Freed has written Killing Time, a book about the OJ Simpson trial and the screen play, "Executive Action" which was about the JFK assassination. And what other things would the listeners be interested in what you've done?

FREED: I'm a visiting professor at Loyola Marymount University (L.A.) and I'm teaching at USC and I'm working on a film about the murder of Martin Luther King.
I've been working for about a year and a half on the Ramsey murder for a two part series for ABC one of which is completed and the other of which will be completed if ABC wishes to complete it. At the moment they have frozen the project and it’s not clear whether it will be done elsewhere if at all. And of course the crime that has generated such interest has also GENERATED GREAT FEAR in the media because this taboo is the most fearsome in a way of all the taboos.
But in so working on ABC's budget for that time, I was able to go to Europe and elsewhere. And I finally presented some information to the police and the FBI during several meetings in Boulder. I haven't talked about it publicly until now, but I think now that I've waited more then what use to be called a "decent interval". So I'll talk about this a little bit.
If you take your mind back to the morning of the crime---I say the morning of the crime because I think its clear what I mean---- and that day after Christmas. The call came into the Boulder police at about 5:52am and thus began the time-line.
The kind of work I do is forensic work on time-lines. That's what I did in the Simpson case in (my book) Killing Time. That's what I would like you to follow me on.
After that call comes in, a uniformed policeman comes to the house by about 6:00 am and then more personnel arrive. The morning goes by; in the early afternoon the body is found, and sometime in the evening the coroner arrives---and that's the rough time-line of that day. For several hours during the morning, a Boulder police detective was alone at the house while family and friends walked about and generally, completely co-opted the crime scene.
Since that first day until this hour the lawyers and the pundits and experts and media commentators have never ceased to state that the Boulder police did not maintain the crime scene. In fact, they destroyed the crime scene and they went so far as to create the most awkward move perhaps in the history of a homicide investigation in asking John Ramsey to search the house whereupon he found his daughter, carried her upstairs, and laid her out in front of the Christmas tree.
All this has been rehearsed and repeated endlessly in the media and its been stated by the most serious experts that the case will probably never, ever go to trial because of the police mishandling of that day. What is more (it is perceived) that the police didn't take the expert advice that such an amateur police department from such a little town would have needed. And there was the FBI offering to help at every step of the way and finally trying to salvage the case by inviting everyone to Quantico, Virginia; then helping with the presentation. And that is the general idea or story line of the case.
MCFARLAND: Yes, one of the detectives, Linda Arndt filed a lawsuit over her dismissal.
FREED: Now, if I may, Dr. McFarland, ask you a few questions?
MCFARLAND: Sure
FREED: How did it come to pass that, in your opinion, that the Boulder police were in charge of the crime scene in general for about eight hours with a lone detective there. And how is it that this detective and this police force had never held themselves out as experts on terrorism or kidnapping. Remember we're talking about a note that announces it’s from a foreign faction that "hates" your country and has other "bigwigs" in their gunsights. How do you understand it that the Boulder police---the much blamed Boulder police---are in charge of this crime scene?!?
MCFARLAND: Hmmmm? Well, I think they didn't feel the need for another unit because they really didn't believe that ransom note.
FREED: Oh, I quite agree with you, BUT let me say to you this. You're aware, I'm sure, that the historic and famous jurisdiction, in the case of kidnapping, belongs to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
MCFARLAND: The Lindberg LawFREED: YES, it’s not only their jealously guarded turf, but they base their budget on few traditional areas such as grand theft auto; interstate offense of all kinds; and KIDNAPPING. And in kidnapping, they have written the book. They have special training. They are defined by their handling of kidnapping and they operate in what is called "rebuttable presumption". That means that if someone disappears and the FBI considers it an interesting, challenging, or worthwhile case; they intervene on the theory of "rebuttable presumption": that it could be presumed that federal laws have been broken and that the FBI, until instructed otherwise, WILL TAKE CONTROL.
IN THE CASE WHERE THERE IS A RANSOM NOTE---THAT TRIGGERS THE FBI's JURISDICTION. And this is a well-oiled machine of many decades standing. When it goes into action the local police are pushed into the periphery.
When its a wealthy corporate executive; and when the note in fact announces that these are foreign terrorists---now every bell in the "national security system" begins to ring---then the interfacing with the CIA, the NSA, the Pentagon; all this unfolds within a matter of minutes. The Attorney General stands by; the President is awakened ready to go on television; because it is a written and unwritten law that "foreign terrorists" on the soil of the United States should they dare commit a crime; should they dare to contemplate a kidnapping or the murder of an innocent child or American citizen or any visitor to the United States; that unleashes the full might and power of the United States of America, no matter what it takes or how long it takes.
In the case of Orlando Letelier, a visiting Marxist scholar who was organizing against the Pinochet junta in Chile, when his car was exploded on Embassy Row in Washington D.C., foreign terrorists were identified, after various cover stories were brushed aside. The FBI, who hated Letelier; who put out the story that a jealous mistress or husband might have blown-up his car; that same FBI four years later walked into the palace in Santiago, Chile and told General Pinochet that his head of security, Col. Contreras, would have to resign and would have to stand trial. And he did! And this was the beginning of the undoing of our client the Pinochet regime in Chile.
This was no Marxist, I will say to you, who was kidnapped or killed in Boulder, Colorado. This was a child of a Lockheed Martin executive of a $18 billion a year firm with Pentagon and top secret clearance across the world.
With this huge multi-million dollar security apparatus that exists for that day that any member of a family of a corporate executive; any member, wife, child of corporate executive's family should be kidnapped; they go into overdrive. That's when they earn their money and it’s when they face the CEO's in Denver, and that's where they say "here's where Lockheed Martin stands: your children can or cannot go to school; your wives can or cannot go to the market". An entire protocol unfolds. The interface between the head of Lockheed Martin Security and the FBI is elaborate and its interlocking and its complete.
So the two units, in the Boulder Area, are trained to react to an act of terrorism, like kidnapping, are Lockheed Martin Security on one hand and the FBI on the other. Now, NOBODY FROM EITHER TWO OF THESE UNITS CAME NEAR THAT CRIME SCENE and the question is as in the case of Sherlock Holme's dog that didn't bark. What you're looking at here is SOMETHING THAT IS SO IRREGULAR; SO IMPOSSIBLE, because remember, the SOG, the seat of government operates in this regard.
Every year the Director of the FBI must go before Congress. Is it conceivable to you, doctor, that the head of the FBI could go before a Congressional committee and be asked why the FBI had not involved itself in terrorists who announce themselves?!
If you say now that the note was a hoax, and it doesn't ring true; you'd be quite right. You could have said it a day later or a week later---and everyone has said it. But no one could have said it that morning---minutes count! The FBI's entire profile is based on quick, rapid, decisive action. They take over public relations. They'd have the Boulder police direct traffic at the periphery. No one gets in or out of that house. No one touches the crime scene. Every home in that area of Boulder is secured.
In the case of Adobe Graphics three years before, there was an executive kidnapped and hundred's of FBI agents poured into the landscape. When in Michigan where another industrial kidnapping tool place---where a wife was suspected actually-- hundreds of FBI agents poured in.
What I'm telling you now is a composite of my interviews with FBI executives in this country and elsewhere---former agents and Lockheed Martin agents. When a note announces "terrorism" it is the magic word in the United States for both law enforcement and budgetary considerations. So that if you say you didn't believe that note nor believe there were foreign terrorists, then you are dealing with a madman who is signing himself or herself as foreign terrorist and intends to get some "fat cats". So what difference does it make whether these are foreign terrorists or a madman pretending to be foreign terrorists? You still have the most alarming situation. In the FBI bureaucracy this called "a special".
Not only was this NOT "a special"; there was no response as if it were terrorism. Remembering that the FBI never came to the crime scene, they were never able to say to director Freeh in Washington: "Don't worry. This is a hoax. This is a false note. We don't think the Bureau will be embarrassed".
The Bureau doesn't take anyone's word about being "embarrassed". The Bureau operates on a principle of redundancy and "Do Not Embarrass the Bureau" is their watchword; it is their motto.
For the Director of the FBI in Washington, D.C. to restrain and stand down his own agents in the field; both the local office in Boulder and the bigger one in Denver or Lockheed Martin and their agents, without going to the crime scene, and being able to reassure their CEO's in Denver that they can stand down; their children can go to the park; their wives can go to the bridge club;----for these assurances to be made on which careers and budgets and lifetimes depend, there can only be one answer. They had to know, not only were there no foreign terrorists, but they had to know BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT that what happened neither affected the security of the United States of America or the security and profits of Lockheed Martin. That this was a domestic personal aberational crime of some kind or in any case a crime which, though located inside a home, may have repercussions outside in terms of circles of people who would not want investigations going on about child pornography, child abuse, or child sexuality.
I've summed up for you what a year of research has led me to.

MCFARLAND: Let me ask you what would be the normal way in which the police would notify the FBI.
FREED: They were notified! The chief of police is on record. They told the FBI immediately. They have to.
MCFARLAND: So the FBI already knew.
FREED: Here you have the clock striking 13, Doctor, calling into question everything that went before. And to the listeners I know they say, "I heard that the police didn't want them or that the FBI offered to help or such and such." Let me tell you what happens. The FBI offers its help to any prosecution or any jurisdiction in the country. They offer their lab; their services. They are the big brother in these matters. BUT WHEN IT IS THEIR JURISDICTION it’s not a question of offering to help or being rejected by some small police force.
The FBI in Rapid City, S.D., for instance, in the Wounded Knee affair, when the local sheriffs tried to keep jurisdiction, the FBI came in with guns drawn. In Dallas when Dallas authorities attempted to keep President Kennedy's body at Parkland Hospital in accordance with Texas law, the FBI and the Secret Service, with guns drawn, moved the body to Air Force One. When the FBI has its jurisdiction challenged that's their money you're going for and their reputation. That's their identity. That's their vitals. That's their fundament.
For those who feel, "Well maybe, gee, it was early in the morning. Maybe the FBI was going to go later". . .

MCFARLAND: The FBI never sleeps...
FREED: So, I know this may sound a little strange. But with the way I work in crime, I can only work on what is public record. I don't have subpoena power. I work on the time-line.

Here the FBI and Lockheed Martin have to go before the Grand Jury to say what they knew and when they knew it; because there is a chain of information that goes from the house to Lockheed Martin to the FBI to Washington D.C. back to the field and the order is to "stand down". "Don't go into the house. Let the Boulder police handle it".

I think perhaps the more innocent explanation is that everybody assumed the Boulder police could make an arrest, because an arrest could have been made. But the Boulder police, don't forget, never held themselves out to be experts. They never said they had any sophistication in matters of terrorism; of kidnapping. These are specialized pursuits. That's the more innocent explanation.
The more ominous explanation is what's called the Belgian syndrome. It involves the murder of children that went uninvestigated until people came out into the streets in the thousands in Belgium. It turned out that high ranking members of the system of justice and the corporate structure who had discouraged investigations of the murder and sexual abuse of these children ----not because, and I stress this, not because they were involved in the murders----but they were involved in their own way in pornography; sexuality with children and related elements, some of who are not illegal, but all of which must be the death sentences to anyone's career.
When a sex offender comes out of prison, his photograph goes on a lamp post; the neighborhood is alerted. That's when someone comes out of the system and is branded as a sexual criminal. But when a corporate executive, someone with power, is involved in practices which are tabooed. Then as Mrs. Van Alter said about her father: when that man is discovered---if he is discovered he's no longer a CEO or Republican or Episcopalian or Elk or Rotarian or husband or father or Christian or any thing else. He is nothing and might as well be dead.
So that those who have been touched by a sexuality that is tabooed, they will go to ANY LENGTHS to suppress that information. And, if it means covering up sexual crimes with which they had nothing to do, they will do it!
So that's about it, in a highly---and I hope not too dense a way---- the fruits of about a year and a half of work. And I ask those who are listening NOT to take my word for it, but to talk to friends or relatives who may be former or present law enforcement officers or district attorneys or anyone working for the city or the state. Ask them in this way, say, "A very wealthy family announces that their daughter has been kidnapped and produces a note that say foreign terrorists are the authors and that a little girl is later found murdered. Who would be in charge of this case?" And I ask you to test that out anywhere you can get an official answer.
And then if you think that you want to be reassured that the Grand Jury is questioning the appropriate executives of Lockheed Martin and the FBI, then you know you can certainly write to the district attorney, because Mr. Michael Kane and others are very serious grand jury attorneys, I'm told. I think that you should and could write to them.
I must tell you finally that Norm Early who had been the district attorney of Denver and was the vice-president of Lockheed Martin Security at the time of the murder of Jon Benet. I interviewed him at the time. He's a fascinating man---- extremely intelligent. And he said to me finally, "You know I had a six year-old son and we have a security protocol and that letter threatened other executives. Where was the security? Where were the bodyguards? Where was the protocol? Where was the alert; the drill; the routine; the regimen that we so carefully shared and worked on at Lockheed Martin? Not a word. Not a sound. Not a telephone call."
So, he began to call executives and lawyers and others and said, "Why wasn't my family alerted? What happened?" And they said to him, "Well, there was no threat" And he said, "How do you know that?" They said, "Well, I don't know. We just knew". And he said, "Well, think about it and I want an answer!" The next day he talked to some of these people and reported to me that they said, "You know we stayed awake all night wrestling with the question----agonizing with it. And you know you're right. How did we know that the (ransom note) was a hoax immediately? We might have known it in a day or two, or a week or two. But how do we know until this day?
To this day there has been no arrest. To this day we know that there was a murder and that there was a note left stating that foreign agents were involved."

MCFARLAND: You've just been listening to Donald Freed author and faculty member at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Maybe we'll get to hear more from Donald Freed later.

From The Journal of Psychohistory 21 (4) Spring 1994
The Children of God
By Robert McFarland, MD
On October 31, 1993, River Phoenix, a popular young movie star, died of heroin and cocaine use on the streets of Los Angeles. Not only were his fans surprised at his use of drugs -he had a reputation as a vegetarian and ecologist- but they were even more startled when they learned from the People magazine article on his death that he had "lost his virginity" when he was four years old. What People didn't elaborate on, however, was that his parents belonged to a cult called The Children of God since he was a boy, and that this cult openly believed in using children for sexual purposes.
The Children of God began in the Sixties when David Berg, a minister in the Christian and Missionary Alliance, started a group called Teens for Christ. The group was like other Jesus People groups in its communal life style, but far more ascetic and apocalyptic, emphasizing the cutting of family ties, discipline and commitment to cult beliefs, which included total devotion to cult activities on the part of children of members. The group moved from California to various other locations in 1968, and Berg took the name of Moses David, proclaiming a new sexual ethic that included group love-making sessions. The group's activities proliferated to such a point that, by 1974, the Attorney General of New York issued a report after 18 months of investigation at request of Governor Nelson Rockefeller that alleged that they were engaged in kidnapping, imprisonment, virtual enslavement, prostitution, polygamy, rape and sexual abuse of children and incest. They recruited new members by using female members as "bait" -essentially religious prostitution- the women so deeply believing in Berg's teachings that God wanted them to serve sexually for Him that they agreed to become "hookers for Jesus." Berg himself published a book, My Little Fish, that members used as "a blueprint requiring adults to introduce their children to sexual experiences," according to the group's historian, David Van Zandt, who lived with the group in order to conduct sociological research. "During the early 1980s there was experimentation with small child sex including incest."
By 1981, the group, known as The Family or The Family of Love, had grown into a movement claiming over 2,000 homes in 76 Countries. Although they were skillful at public relations (they sang Christmas carols for Barbara Bush at the White House in 1992), everywhere they went legal problems arose from their sexual beliefs. A police raid in Australia in May 1992 placed 40 children in protective custody because of abuse; a month later, French police raided 12 group houses near Lyons, putting 40 children into custody; later a similar raid in Barcelona, Spain placed 22 children in protective custody. The most recent arrest was in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where 180 police raided a Family home and found 268 underfed and poorly clothed children along with literature promoting sex between adults and children and videotapes showing parents having sex with their children. The judge said the raid was based on "very strong...evidence of abuse of children [who lived] in the virtual state of servitude" plus sworn testimony of ex-members that children were separated from their parents and were encouraged to engage in sex with adults.
I recently spoke to an ex-member who was in the process of writing a book on the physical and sexual abuse of children in The Family. Mary Jones (a pseudonym) described how children were taught from birth that God wanted them to allow parents and other adults to use them sexually. "Parents were instructed how to sexually abuse their children and it was required," she told me. Gang-rape, incest and sodomy were quite common, she said, and children were sent to certain homes as "schools" where they were sexually abused. Children were also locked in isolation and horrendous punishments were inflicted upon them. If anyone refused to have sex, she said, they were caged, with no water and no toilet facilities, until they changed their mind. According to Jones, Berg preached that infants should be initiated into sex right after birth, so most children thought this was part of growing up. The result, she said, was that they constantly acted out sexually; the children that were rescued from the group in Spain, for instance, soon had to be isolated in a separate school because they kept on trying to initiate sexual intercourse with other children and adults in the regular school into which they were first put.
It is difficult to understand why critics of those who claim cult abuse of children is real do not bother to look at the extensive court and other evidence of the myriad cults that have been proven to exist and to abuse children. Excellent summaries on these groups can be found in such periodicals as Cultic Studies Journal, Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin, and the publications and conferences of such groups as Believe the Children (PO Box 268462, Chicago IL 60626) Repeating the myth that "there is no real evidence" for cult abuse of children other than tainted reports of hypnotized patients is similar to those who deny the reports of Holocaust victims. Evidence abounds in such books as Larry Kahaner's Cults that Kill, and in the many conferences and publications of such groups as Believe the Children, International Cult Education Program and the Cult Awareness Network. It is our own disbelief of that evidence that is questionable.

'Nothing is what it seems' in Ramsey case
by Evan Ravitz
When Ramsey case lead investigators Det. Tom Wickman and Det. Tom Trujillo interviewed myself and Robert McFarland, MD, co-founder of Boulder's Parenting Place for an hour at my home last May 5, Detective Wickman remarked "Nothing is what it seems in this case." Here are several examples that have not received media coverage, yet:
DA Alex Hunter concluded his recent retirement statement by saying, regarding the Ramsey case: "I believe most people feel their district attorney has done right by the law." Mr. Hunter did not say he followed the law, only that people think he did. He did not follow this law:
Colorado Revised Statute 16-5-204 (l) states "Any person may approach the prosecuting attorney or the grand jury and request to testify or retestify in an inquiry before a grand jury or to appear before a grand jury." Dr. McFarland and I, after discovering that Dr. McFarland's mailings to the jury foreman had been intercepted, sent material directly to jury members at their homes on June 28. For thus exercising our right under Colorado law to "approach" our fellow citizens the grand jury, we were threatened with prosecution for Contempt of Court! And ridiculed by editor Hartman of the Boulder Daily Camera.
It was not until September 23rd that I read the above law myself. The Colorado ACLU Intake Director told me on October 8 that they would take our case, although this was too late to be of use, with the grand jury about to disband. Perhaps there will be another. But valuable time has been lost. The Denver Post reported on 3/15/00 that Hunter also tried to keep his own investigator Lou Smit away from the grand jury until Smit sought a court order to enforce the above law!
Our evidence is similar to that which the woman from San Luis Obispo, California and her therapist have been giving Boulder police in recent weeks, featured in a long lead article (by editor Hartman) on February 25, and others since, relating to a pedophile ring having abused and killed JonBenet.
At Hunter's press conference on October 14th, investigative journalist Joe Calhoun (who shares in an Academy award for the documentary The Panama Deception) asked why Dr. McFarland and I had been repeatedly prevented from contacting the grand jury, in spite of the law. Hunter replied that a judge's order (Daniel Hale's) forbade us, which seemed to satisfy the media. Yet, every lawyer knows that even judges and DAs must obey state laws. Why would these leaders of Boulder's justice system deem it so important to keep us from the grand jury that they would repeatedly violate this law?
The substance of our testimony to the police and what we still want investigated is what it seems Hunter most wanted to avoid: the possibility that accused pedophiles in very high places in Boulder -we suggested two names- had both motive and means to de-rail the investigation in the first hours, possibly by calling off the FBI. The motive would be to keep the wide-ranging spotlight of a media case like this away from people like themselves, whether they were involved or not.
Normally, the FBI would immediately assume jurisdiction over an apparent kidnapping by "a small foreign faction" (so read the "ransom note") of the child of a Defense contractor executive. (Lockheed-Martin owned Access Graphics.) Detective Linda Arndt has stated that she asked for the FBI and police backup before she even arrived at the Ramsey home and was told no. This left her unable to control a crime scene filled with suspects and their friends. When she repeated her request she was told everyone was in a meeting. Why would police administration repeatedly refuse to provide backup and FBI assistance in such circumstances?
[The camera edited out this paragraph:] "Tom Wickman made another curious comment to Dr. McFarland and I, and independently to Stephen Singular, author of "Presumed Guilty: An Investigation into the JonBenet Ramsey Case, the Media, and the Culture of Pornography" (on page 217). Tom said that once he was "getting close" to arresting a Boulder City Council member, but had been told to "back off." Since Tom was legally prohibited from giving us any clues about the Ramsey investigation, I feel he was repeatedly drawing an analogy, by way of saying that he'd heard the pedophile-coverup story before and had been told to back off from investigating that."
Hunter made a little Freudian slip under the pressure of the October 14 press conference, in the first 2 minutes. He referred to "grand secrecy," apparently meaning to say "grand jury secrecy." In this case the grand jury didn't have to keep the secrets Dr. McFarland and I had to relate. Hunter and his assistants kept those secrets from the grand jury. They also prevented Cina Wong, Vice-President of the National Board of Document Examiners, from testifying. Why the "grand secrecy," Mr. Hunter?
What makes the case important is not that JonBenet was cute and her parents rich, but what it says about the legal system in our town and beyond. My attorney David Lane calls it the "just us" system. You can read most of our documents and related material at http://vote.org/ramsey.

From The Journal of Psychohistory 21 (4) Spring 1994
The Children of God
By Robert McFarland, MD
On October 31, 1993, River Phoenix, a popular young movie star, died of heroin and cocaine use on the streets of Los Angeles. Not only were his fans surprised at his use of drugs -he had a reputation as a vegetarian and ecologist- but they were even more startled when they learned from the People magazine article on his death that he had "lost his virginity" when he was four years old. What People didn't elaborate on, however, was that his parents belonged to a cult called The Children of God since he was a boy, and that this cult openly believed in using children for sexual purposes.
The Children of God began in the Sixties when David Berg, a minister in the Christian and Missionary Alliance, started a group called Teens for Christ. The group was like other Jesus People groups in its communal life style, but far more ascetic and apocalyptic, emphasizing the cutting of family ties, discipline and commitment to cult beliefs, which included total devotion to cult activities on the part of children of members. The group moved from California to various other locations in 1968, and Berg took the name of Moses David, proclaiming a new sexual ethic that included group love-making sessions. The group's activities proliferated to such a point that, by 1974, the Attorney General of New York issued a report after 18 months of investigation at request of Governor Nelson Rockefeller that alleged that they were engaged in kidnapping, imprisonment, virtual enslavement, prostitution, polygamy, rape and sexual abuse of children and incest. They recruited new members by using female members as "bait" -essentially religious prostitution- the women so deeply believing in Berg's teachings that God wanted them to serve sexually for Him that they agreed to become "hookers for Jesus." Berg himself published a book, My Little Fish, that members used as "a blueprint requiring adults to introduce their children to sexual experiences," according to the group's historian, David Van Zandt, who lived with the group in order to conduct sociological research. "During the early 1980s there was experimentation with small child sex including incest."
By 1981, the group, known as The Family or The Family of Love, had grown into a movement claiming over 2,000 homes in 76 Countries. Although they were skillful at public relations (they sang Christmas carols for Barbara Bush at the White House in 1992), everywhere they went legal problems arose from their sexual beliefs. A police raid in Australia in May 1992 placed 40 children in protective custody because of abuse; a month later, French police raided 12 group houses near Lyons, putting 40 children into custody; later a similar raid in Barcelona, Spain placed 22 children in protective custody. The most recent arrest was in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where 180 police raided a Family home and found 268 underfed and poorly clothed children along with literature promoting sex between adults and children and videotapes showing parents having sex with their children. The judge said the raid was based on "very strong...evidence of abuse of children [who lived] in the virtual state of servitude" plus sworn testimony of ex-members that children were separated from their parents and were encouraged to engage in sex with adults.
I recently spoke to an ex-member who was in the process of writing a book on the physical and sexual abuse of children in The Family. Mary Jones (a pseudonym) described how children were taught from birth that God wanted them to allow parents and other adults to use them sexually. "Parents were instructed how to sexually abuse their children and it was required," she told me. Gang-rape, incest and sodomy were quite common, she said, and children were sent to certain homes as "schools" where they were sexually abused. Children were also locked in isolation and horrendous punishments were inflicted upon them. If anyone refused to have sex, she said, they were caged, with no water and no toilet facilities, until they changed their mind. According to Jones, Berg preached that infants should be initiated into sex right after birth, so most children thought this was part of growing up. The result, she said, was that they constantly acted out sexually; the children that were rescued from the group in Spain, for instance, soon had to be isolated in a separate school because they kept on trying to initiate sexual intercourse with other children and adults in the regular school into which they were first put.
It is difficult to understand why critics of those who claim cult abuse of children is real do not bother to look at the extensive court and other evidence of the myriad cults that have been proven to exist and to abuse children. Excellent summaries on these groups can be found in such periodicals as Cultic Studies Journal, Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin, and the publications and conferences of such groups as Believe the Children (PO Box 268462, Chicago IL 60626) Repeating the myth that "there is no real evidence" for cult abuse of children other than tainted reports of hypnotized patients is similar to those who deny the reports of Holocaust victims. Evidence abounds in such books as Larry Kahaner's Cults that Kill, and in the many conferences and publications of such groups as Believe the Children, International Cult Education Program and the Cult Awareness Network. It is our own disbelief of that evidence that is questionable.

The JonBenet Ramsey Case: Emerging Child Sex-Ring Allegations, Political Connections and a Suspect

Introduction: The Belinda Schultz file
On March 22, I received a call from Joe Calhoun, a reporter from the Denver area and a recipient of an Academy Award in 1990 for his investigative work on The Panama Deception. For the record, we had talked once before, also by telephone, about the JonBenet Ramsey case, exchanged observations, and thatwas the extent of my past relationship with him. At the time, I had an uncomfortable feeling that Boulder police spokesmen, the cable martinets and investigative “experts” on the case were misrepresenting the facts. Calhoun was in town, Los Angeles, and wanted to discuss the murder in detail.
Shortly thereafter, Calhoun, with the bearded, wide-eyed demeanor of an academic on the brink of a discovery, dropped a folder on my desk. For this record, he read a prepared statement:: “I am a freelance journalist who has been covering the JonBenet Ramsey case since its beginnings. There are only a few news conferences in Boulder that I have not attended. At the last news conference, on October 13, 1999, the day after the announcement by Alex Hunter that there would be no charges filed in the Ramsey case following the adjournment of the Grand Jury, myself and a few individuals were given a file.”
I was, at this stage, stepping more or less blindly into a quagmire of details after three years of following the public debacle casually on the cable talk shows. Whatever Calhoun had, I was not in the mood for conspiratorial moonshine, but he had been down this road himself the file, containing 23 pages of interviews with a victim of organized child abuse in Colorado and Texas, “was of such a bizarre nature, I was extremely circumspect about regarding it as a collection of genuine documents and
confidential memos. I jokingly referred to it to some of my colleagues as The Blair Witch Project of the JonBenet Ramsey case. I didn’t pursue any of the leads mentioned in the file until recently.

Three weeks ago,” Calhoun recalled, “a 37-year-old woman from San Luis Obispo, California came forward with information to Boulder Attorney Lee Hill. She alleged that she came from a family of inter-generational child abuse victims, and had been abused since the age of three by a powerful group of pedophiles, some of whom were associates of the Ramsey family. I dug up the file I had originally obtained in October and decided to give it a second look, since the information contained therein seemed to parallel the information the woman was providing Boulder D.A. Alex Hunter and the police. Upon rereading all of the information contained in it, and cross-referencing names, the entire file had more of a flow of information.”
Calhoun came to entertain the notion that the sex-ring allegations surfacing sporadically on the edge of the case might have some merit. “On March 21, I contacted the Pearline, Texas Police Department for verification of the Paul Schultz [child sexual abuse] case mentioned in the file. I was immediately transferred to Detective Bill Colson,. He was unaware of the recent developments in Boulder concerning the 37-year-old woman from San Luis Obispo, California. However, Detective Colson confirmed the following: The case number ‘951302,’ on pages 7 and 14, is genuine, and the woman, Belinda Schultz, currently living in Cypress, Texas, in a notarized statement contained in the file, at the time would [have been] more likely to give information concerning the Ramsey case. And a Boulder detective was in Texas in December, 1997, seeking information regarding Paul Schultz [her estranged husband] and his involvement, if any, in the JonBenet Ramsey case.”
Calhoun placed the next call to a private investigator, Char Blaiser, wife of O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Blaiser, at her office in Sacramento, California. Ms Blasier, whose office had been contracted by Boulder police to obtain social security numbers of everyone close to the Ramsey case, reportedly states that the night after the JonBenet murder, a caller claiming to be a member of the Ramsey family told her, “I want to talk to you about Paul,” but disconnected when put on hold. Blasier, Calhoun recalls, “was extremely surprised that I had information in my possession concerning Paul Schultz, and essentially confirmed the information regarding the JonBenet Ramsey case.”
“It is clear,” Calhoun says, “from the statements of both Detective Colson and Char Blazer that the Boulder authorities were very interested in a connection between the death of Jonbenet Ramsey and what appears astonishingly to be organized pedophilia on a national level, perhaps with a criminal government license.”
Child sex and pornography rings with political ties have been known to exist. In 1995, for example, Linda Rozar, president of Concerned Citizens for Florida and chapter head of the American Family Association, a branch of presidential candidate Gary Bauer’s ultra-conservative Federation, pledguilty to one count of child abuse and two counts of tampering with a witness. She received a remarkably light sentence, one year of probation, and was ordered to see a psychiatrist. In 1986, Linda’s husband Jerry Rozar was convicted of child molestation. So there were precedents. And since the murder, the 1999 Parent of the Year Award, an honor conceived by Congress, was bestowed on a Longmont, Colorado man with connections to a cult that prostitutes young girls, so-called “hookers for Jesus,” and has been charged repeatedly with child sexual abuse.  The annual honor was chosen by the National Parents Day Foundation, an organization that has ties to the Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church, a creation of the Korean CIA and alsovery right-wing.
It happens. Nevertheless, a healthy dose of skepticism was called for. Calhoun’s conclusion about the background of the JonBenet case was based, again, on a file of police interviews passed to him at a Boulder press conference. Fortunately, its origin is no longer a mystery. Calhoun has, since obtaining the file, found out that the documents were supplied by a researcher at the University of Denver. The University, says Calhoun, threatened to fire the tenured faculty member if he continued with his investigation of the Ramsey case, and the file was passed along to reporters in Boulder.
If the statements of Belinda Schultz and other abuse survivors are correct, Boulder has a serious problem. With Calhoun’s file of leaked affidavits, all that remained was to flesh out a Who’s Who register of predators tied to the alleged killer of JonBenet Ramsey in 1996.
1) Southwestern Child-Pornocrats
Belinda Schultz, 43, was born to the Zander family, an established, aristocratic family in Louisiana, and grew up in Lafayette, near New Orleans. Her first marriage was to Lanny Slaydon, an oil industry marketer. She had four children before the marriage dissolved in the early 1980s. She moved on to Houston to live with family members, and met Paul Schultz. She describes her ex-husband as a “white supremacist” of the “Christian Identity” strain, and a “mafia hit-man” currently serving time for felony child molestation, sentenced in Brazoria County, Texas, the county seat of Angleton. Prior to their divorce, Paul and Belinda ran Custom Air Products on Hampstead Road in northwest Houston, a business formerly run by Paul’s father, Carlton Schultz. She notes that the business had “Mafia” connections. The company largely served the petroleum industry along the Gulf Coast, but everyday management of the business fell to Belinda because her husband was often incapacitated by a weakness for cocaine and alcohol.
They had a child, Nicholas, in 1990. In an affidavit filed with the Pearland, Texas PD, Nicholas recalls that his father used to receive “sugar” and “lots of money: when he pimped his son out to pedophiles frequenting the adult bookstores on Houston’s south side.
Belinda’s second marriage crumbled when she began to suspect that he was bisexual and had a gay lover, Tenourio Luga, sometimes “Lucas,” a reputed explosives expert and informant to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, who has provided his services to the Mexican Mafia and CIA. Luga is a suspected drug runner. He has been investigated in the past by the BATF for the stockpiling of firearms and explosives.
A) The Huey Meaux Connection
1. Paul Schultz, according to his ex-wife, was also a coeval of Huey Meaux, the famed record producer and a convicted child molester. On January 30, 1996, the Associated Press reported: “Huey Meaux, 66, was arrested and appeared in court Monday on charges of possession of child pornography and cocaine. He was released after posting bonds totaling $110,000. After police went public with the allegations Monday, two people came forward to say they were assaulted. Meaux then was charged additionally with two counts of sexually assaulting children. Police investigators seized hundreds of videotapes and more than 1,000 photographs last week from offices rented by Meaux at Houston’s Sugar Hill Recording Studio. Meaux formerly owned the studio.”
2. Huey was charged with possession of drugs and child pornography and two counts of sexual assault on a child. Two weeks after the arrest, Shannon McDowell Brasher, 25, filed a sexual abuse lawsuit against Meaux, alleging that he had plied her with illegal drugs as a prelude to sexual assault, “exploitation and other perverted and unnatural sex acts.” He also persuaded accomplices to assault her and videotaped the acts, according to Ms Brasher. State District Judge Mark Davidson issued a temporary restraining order sought by Brasher’s attorneys, Dick DeGuerin and Wayne Isgitt. The order prohibited the record producer or others from destroying evidence or retaliating against Brasher.
3. Belinda Schultz’s contention that Meaux participated in a child sex ring is substantiated by Brasher and court transcripts. Belinda’s son Nicholas, age six at the time of Meaux’s arrest, identified the accused in a televised news report. Belinda called Bill Colson, a detective with the Pearland Police Department. Colson did not investigate the sex-ring allegation, though he told her that he would contact Houston police to search for a photo of Nicholas among Meaux’s child pornography collection. Frustrated with Colson’s false promises, she contacted Detective A.D. Wright, the officer in charge of the Meaux case. Wright confirmed a connection between Meaux and Paul Schultz. In addition, according to Calhoun’s file, Officer P.C. Taylor of the CID section produced telephone records indicating that Schultz and Meaux had made “numerous” calls to one another. Houston police offered that they had a “thick file” on Schultz, linking him to several known pedophiles in Houston.
B) Jerry J. Moore, Houston Real Estate Developer
One of Paul Schultz’s confederates in the sex ring, according to Nicholas Schultz, was a wealthy Republican, one Jerry J. Moore. Nicholas says that he once accompanied Moore by plane to Colorado.
In January 1996, the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) announced that it sought a $250,000 civil penalty against Charles R. Vickery, former senior chairman of the First National Bank of Bellaire, Texas. The OCC charged that in 1991, Vickery directed the bank to make illicit loans to Houston real estate magnate Jerry J. Moore and corporations owned and controlled by him. Vickery also granted some $50,000 of title insurance premiums paid by Moore on the loans for his personal use. The loans violated federal lending limit law and triggered alarms at the OCC . The S&L was issued a cease and desist order.
4. Jerry J. Moore is now one of the wealthiest men in Texas. His real estate company was recently bought out for $400 million. He is also active in Republican state politics. Nicholas Schultz maintains that he was taken to Moore’s antebellum mansion, Nicholstone, not far from Dickerson, Texas, and describes the home as a distribution point for child pornography. Huey Meauxwas a regular at Moore’s mansion, according to the boy’s statements.
Moore’s social connections to the Mafia are consistent with the “hit man” allegation raised by Belinda Schultz. Moore’s social circle included: Leonard Capaldi, convicted by the district court in the southern district of Texas on charges of bank fraud and bribery, stemming from his involvement in the April 4, 1986 collapse of Mainland Savings Bank. This S&L lost $300 million. Capaldi was sentenced to the Federal Correctional Institute in Milan, Michigan.
5. Leading lights of the Mainland Savings scandal: arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, James Bath (a business associate of George W. Bush, recruited to the CIA by George, Sr,), Martin Schimmer (for walking off with Teamster steelworker pension funds), Herman K. Beebe, a known Mafioso. Another gangland chum of Jerry J. Moore is Jack Tocco, a Detroit crime boss. Political ties have included late Texas Governor John Connally and Lloyd Bentson, former Secretary of the Treasury.
6. The Prime of Ms Tweet Kimball
Another connection to Paul Schultz was the late Mildred “Tweet” Kimball. Tweet lived in a castle on US 85, just south of Denver in a small town called Sedalia. Nicholas Schultz states that he was taken to the castle and molested there by adults.
The castle was deeded to Kimball by Merritt Ruddock, a member of the U.S. diplomatic corps, an obscure CIA official and her first of four divorced husbands. Tweet Kimball divorced Ruddock in 1955, and as she explained to a local reporter in 1996: “When I divorced him, he said I’d probably go back to Tennessee and talk about him. He said “If you’ll buy property west of the Mississippi, I’ll help you.”
7, And that’s what I did. She bought a 24-room castle on a 4,000 acre estate, built on a promontory with a view of the Rockies. Ruddock had good reason to buy her silence. He was the immediate deputy of the CIA’s Frank Wisner, the notorious overseer of Nazi recruitment by the agency immediately after WW II. Ruddock was hired by Wisner in 1949.
Ray Cline, another notorious Agency stinkbug (the organizer of a support network for George Bush, Sr.’s 1980 campaign. composed almost entirely of former intelligence officers headed by Steven Halper, Cline’s son-in-law), kept close to Ruddock throughout the war. Cline recalls Ruddock as a hard drinker and “a personal manipulator of ideas and people.”
8. (The Colorado Department of Tourism doesn’t advertise the fact, but the state has a thriving intelligence establishment. Loring Wirbel, an environmental researcher in Monument, Colorado, found that worldwide “intelligence expansion by U.S. agencies has a very real impact on Colorado.
Buckley [Air Force Base] is now the major employer in the Denver metro area, with the classified Aerospace Data Facility section of the base responsible for far more jobs than the public Tactical Air Command portion of the base. The Denver Business Journal estimated in April that classified intelligence spending by NSA and NRO in Colorado may exceed $3 billion annually. Support facilities for Buckley include Falcon Air Force Base east of Colorado Springs, which performs intelligence fusion missions; Lockheed-Martin’s Waterton Canyon plant in southwest Denver, which builds spy satellites and Titan-4 rockets; Peterson Air Force Base, the headquarters of the Space Command; and the aging North American Aerospace Defense Command inside Cheyenne Mountain west of Colorado Springs.
Another Air National Guard base outside Greeley, Colorado, is receiving many mobile satellite reconnaissance troops formerly housed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, part of a mission to make the Colorado Front Range a center of excellence for technical intelligence.”
9. Merritt Ruddock was not the only member of the family with CIA and Nazi ties. Ms Kimball’s father, according to a note found in the Belinda Schultz file, “Colonel Kimball of Chattanooga, Tennessee, had been a prime mover in the grown of the Post-WWI Ku Klux Klan.” (The repetitious links to Nazism in the testimony of Nicholas Schultz, a 7-year-old boy, recalls his mother’s statement that Paul Schultz is a “white supremacist,” and is obviously among friends.)
She bonded with her castle and its environs, re-christened Cherokee Ranch, and lived like a European monarch. A tour guide told an AP reporter, “the house has a number of Portuguese tile murals and many examples of parquetry (an artistic inlaid wood design done on furniture). As she describes the lavish contents of several china cabinets, words like Dresden, Spode, Meissen and Waterford slip into the conversations. That bed was built for Charles II, and he actually slept in it. This inlaid cabinet came from the court of Spain, and the pictures represent Aesop’s fables. The libraries are full of first editions, some quite old and valuable. Well, with names like Dickens and Thackeray on the bindings, one would think so.”
10. Tweet Kimball died in 1999. She had been an active Republican. Kimball served on the Douglas County Planning Commission and the commissioners’ Water Advisory Board, as well as the board of the Douglas County Educational Foundation. She also spent 14 years on the board of the Denver Art Museum as accessions chairman. She was the local matriarch of local Republican party politics and frequently played hostess to the Douglas County Republican caucus.
11. “Kimball’s castle and ranchland provided an extravagant vehicle for her varied pursuits,” the local County News-Press noted in her obituary last January, “wildlife conservation, a vast, eclectic art collection, politics, innovative ranching, royal relationships and storied social events.”12
2) Supporting Evidence of Child Sex Ring Involvement
As Calhoun mentioned, in March of this year, Boulder detectives flew to San Luis Obispo, California, to interview Mary Bienkowski, a licensed family therapist. Bienkowski claimed to have information pertaining to the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation. The woman said that her mother’s godfather is Fleet White, a friend of John Ramsey. The therapist had urged police in Boulder to interview her client:
Regarding Bienkowski:
CLIENT GAVE BOULDER POLICE NAMES OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WITNESSES IN JONBENET’S
DEATH – 2000 Daily Camera

A private therapist said Friday she stands behind her client who claims to have crucial information that could help investigators in the death of JonBenet Ramsey. Mary Bienkowski, a licensed marriage, family and child counselor, said her client gave Boulder police specific names of individuals who are witnesses in the killing of JonBenet as well as ongoing sexual and physical abuse of other children.
“If they do their job and investigate what needs to be investigated, the rest of the pieces will fall into place, and nobody is going to like what they find out,” she said. “This person wouldn’t be coming forward and risking everything if it were not because she wanted the abuse to stop and wanted to protect other children.”
Bienkowski said she has treated her client for the past 10 years for trauma endured as a repeated victim of sexual assault. Because her client had information that a widespread sex ring could have been behind the Dec. 26, 1996, strangulation and beating death of 6-year-old JonBenet, she encouraged the woman to take the information to authorities.
JonBenet was found in the basement of her family’s Boulder home. Her parents, John and Patsy, are the focus of a police investigation, although the couple have denied involvement in their daughter’s death.
After 13 months of investigating the case, a Boulder grand jury disbanded in October without charges being filed. During an interview Friday with the Daily Camera at a downtown San Luis Obispo coffee shop, Bienkowski blasted the Boulder Police Department for not actively investigating the list of people she said her client believes may have knowledge of who killed JonBenet.
She would not divulge the names of those thought to be involved, saying that information should first be given to law enforcement officials. The Whites have not returned phone calls from the Daily Camera. John Ramsey’s attorney has declined to comment on the new information.
Boulder police questioned Bienkowski’s client in Colorado for five hours. The FBI interviewed her as well. Detectives also contacted her family and interviewed some of them in California. And then the whole matter was dropped. Bienkowski lost faith in the police and refused to cooperate any further.
13.  Who left warnings on her answering machine? The Daily Times-Call in Longmont, Colorado reported in March that a reliable witness “identified the voices as [those] of two women [among others] accused of victimizing thenow-37-year-old [informant]. The woman remains in hiding.”
The anonymous callers told Bienkowski:
1.  “Hello Mary. This is a very interested party in regards to [your client’s] welfare. [Her] past and her future are of no, of no concern to you. She made an error in judgment when she came to see you and you have caused her nothing but pain and suffering. Her main concern now is her new husband and her family. She has started a life and is going to be moving as far away from you as possible. She belongs with her family and nobody else.  She is off limits to you.”
2.   [Caller Two]: “Hello. Leave [your client] alone. We take care of our own.  Everything. And nothing is any of your business.”
3.   [Caller Two] “Hello. It’s high time that you caught on that [the informant] doesn’t have time for your foolishness. Thank you.”
4.   [Caller Two] “[She] is going on an extended vacation with her family and while there will seek medical care for her problems. [The woman] has forgotten more than you will ever know.”
5.   [Caller Two] “Hello. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will never hurt us. So leave [her] alone. It’s against the law to disturb the peace. Don’t forget it.”
14.   The statement of the informant that JonBenet was killed in a sadistic sex game was upheld independently by forensic specialist Dr. Cyril Wecht, who studied the autopsy file and concluded that JonBenet’s abuse occurred over a period of time.
Wecht:  “This evidence of abuse, tied literally and figuratively to the cords around her neck and wrist, was enough to draw the conclusion that a sick sex game had gone awry.” But the medical evidence “so far suggested that the vaginal penetration had been a carefully controlled, limited situation not a savage sexual assaults. While the attacker was applying the perverted use
of the garrote that pinched the vagus nerve in her neck and eventually shut down her heart and lungs, the young prey had suddenly turned lifeless without explanation, perhaps literally in her abuser’s arms. Wasn’t it likely that the shocked and panicking molester had shaken JonBenet in a futile attempt to return her to consciousness? A few anxiety-driven shakes
and a ‘wake up! Wake up!’ had failed to restore her to life, but had inflicted the bruises to the temporal lobes of the brain.”

15.  A panel of pediatric experts assembled from all parts of the country states unanimously that JonBenet had injuries “consistent with prior trauma and sexual abuse.” The medical affidavits referred to “past violation of the vagina,” “chronic abuse,” “evidence of both acute injury and chronic sexual abuse.”
16. Author Stephen Singular, a Boulder native, believed so strongly that organized pedophilia and child porn lurked behind the murder of the child that he published a book exploring the sex ring angle, Presumed Guilty. According to Singular’s publisher, “some highlights of the book suggest that one or both of the Ramsey parents unknowingly exposed their daughter to danger that fateful Christmas night,” and reminds, significantly, “human DNA found on her clothing matched nothing found in the Ramsey home”
17. Evan Ravitz and Bob MacFarland, Boulder political activists who shared Singular’s perspective on the case, gave eight of the grand jurors hearing testimony regarding the death of JonBenet Ramsey excerpts of Singular’s book, theorizing that that the girl may have been killed by someone involved in a child pornography ring. Ravitz and MacFarland were cited with contempt of court. Ravitz, wearing a crumpled purple T-shirt, explained to District Judge Roxanne Bailin that the leakers planned on petitioning the D.A.’s office to allow them to testify before the grand jury, and present evidence of corruption in the city, including drug dealing and child pornography possibly “related to the slaying and handling of the Ramsey case.”
Child porn is “an important line of investigation that we hear Hunter has stayed away from,” Ravitz told Judge Bailin.18 But homicide detectives considered this angle a “side theory,” yet have acknowledge that the killer “may have been involved in a child pornography ring that operated in or around Boulder and had earmarked JonBenet as a likely subject.” The connection to child pornography with child sex murders is by no means original.
In 1997, Jeremy Strohmeyer:
18.  Stalked a seven-year-old girl in a Las Vegas casino before murdering her in a restroom. Strohmeyer was an admitted collector of child pornography. “If the pornography connection is true,” the Internet Crime Library observes, “then the murder may have been committed by more than one person as part of a conspiracy.”
19.  The market in Colorado for child prostitution and pornography is a relatively large silent minority. In 1995, the Colorado Department of Human Services filed 5,085 cases of sexual abuse of the 7,931 referred to the agency. Of these,1,160 victims were abused in the state. But the department may investigate a tiny fraction of the actual cases. One-half of one percent of children report sexual abuse, according to Dr. Richard D. Krugman, dean of the University of Colorado Medical School and director of the C. Henry Kemp Center for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect.
20.  a)  A Brotherhood In 1997, the Boulder PD contacted Dale Yeager and Denise Knoke at Seraph, Inc. in Berwyn, Pennsylvania,  a security consulting firm summarized in sales brochures as “an international company [with] extensive sources throughout Europe, South America, the Middle East, Asia, Eastern Europe, Russia and Africa. Our associates are investigative professionals and former intelligence officers”, and asked them to submit an analysis of the ransom note. Yeager and Knoke claimed without hesitation that Patsy Ramsey was the author, joining the chorus of police and tabloid reporters who kept at the parents, and reported that Psalm 118:27.
b)  interpreted as the source of the $118,000 ransom demand, “Decorate the festival with leafy boughs and bind the sacrifices to be offered with thick cords to the horns of the altar” is commonly cited by “white supremacists,” who “use the redemption and sacrifice ideas to form a justification for killings.” Despite the neo-nazi nuance, Yeager and Knoke were positively certain that JonBenet’s mother forged the kidnap letter. “Our conclusion,” Yeager offered, “is that you are investigating a child’s murder with ritualistic overtones. Strangulation and sexual assault are most commonly seen in sadomasochism between heterosexual and homosexual adults”.
21.  On February 27, 2000, Yeager explained to a CBS 2 News reporter, “What we believe was happening in Patsy’s mind was that her daughter was losing control, becoming a wild rebel. She felt (her daughter) was becoming evil.”
22.  Patsy Ramsey did not exactly fit the white supremacist profile, and she certainly wasn’t known to participate in “ritual murder.” Paul Schultz, not incidentally, rings the bell on both counts. He is a member, according to the interviewers of Belinda Schultz, of a “heterodox Christian” cult with Nazi leanings that found its way into the intelligence establishment via the German presence at Tweet Kimball’s castle in Sedalia.
The occult Brotherhood of the White Temple, as this sect was known, survives and has reportedly evolved into an underground terrorist cell. The same “faction” that warned Mary Bienkowski to back off? Police investigating the Ramsey case also received warnings. Blood was splashed on Detective Linda Arndt’s front door. The mutilated carcass of a cat was left on Steve Thomas’s front lawn (if his statements have any credibility, given the flagrant distortions in his book on the case, clearly contrived to widen the umbrella of suspicion that has hung over the parents since the smears began). Sergeant Bob Wilson was at home when four high-powered rounds were fired through his bedroom window and nearly hit him. After these events, “there was no follow-up by the police department” Steve Thomas complains, “which apparently regarded bullets, blood and dead cats as minor”
23.  Belinda Schultz has tied her ex-husband to a cultic, “white-supremacist” terrorist underground with domestic intelligence connections and the murder of JonBenet Ramsey but despite his resemblance to the killer’s profile, Paul Schultz has not been asked for a sample of his hand-writing.
b) The Belgium Syndrome The behavior of law enforcement officials and the media has been odd since the 911 call. John Ramsey was the CEO of a key military-industrial subsidiary, Lockheed, and his daughter had been murdered by a group that claimed to “represent a small foreign faction” (Brotherhood of the White Temple?) Ordinarily, the “Lindbergh Law” requires a “rebuttable presumption” in a high-profile kidnap, particularly one pulled off by terrorists fronting for a “foreign faction,” a widely overlooked point raised by journalist Donald Freed, author of Killing Time, a forensic study of the O.J. Simpson case.
Notification of the FBI in a murder case involving terrorists is mandatory, and officers in Boulder did contact Washington. But the Bureau did not respond.
24. Freed reports that someone in a lofty position assured the FBI and Lockheed Martin Security “prior to the 911 call that any report coming from Boulder “would not affect ‘national security,'” and directed to “let the police handle it.”
25. Freed coined the phrase “Belgium Syndrome” after the recent refusal of Belgian officials and the justice system to respond to a series of child murders, “not because they were involved in the murders, but because they were involved in their own way in pornography, child sexuality and related elements, some of which are not even illegal but all of which would be death sentences for their careers.”
Fleet White, in his letter “to the people of Colorado,” maintained: “It is our firm belief that the District Attorney and others intend to use the Grand Jury and its secrecy in an attempt to protect their careers and also serve the conflicting interests of powerful, influential and threatening people who have something to hide or protect.”
26.  “Conflicting interest” may explain the inertia of detectives in Boulder when the photo of the young beauty contestant turned up in the home of a child pornographer in Columbus, Ohio suspected of involvement in the abduction of another Colorado girl. James Partin, 35, was arrested in December, 1997 for selling child pornography on the Net. Police searched Partin’s home and found a newspaper clipping about the 1983 kidnap of Beth Miller,14, and a map of Idaho Springs marked with several X’s.
The girl vanished after a jog near her Idaho Springs home, and Partin lived in the area at the same time. Boulder police announced that they would contact the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to learn more about the Ramsey photo in Partin’s collection, but a local newspaper reported that they “do not believe that Partin had any involvement” in the slaying. “It’s not a high priority,” police spokeswoman Leslie Aaholm assured reporters.
27.  Did the DA’s reluctance to question Partin about the JonBenet picture suggest an unwillingness to solve the case? Pornographic photos of JonBenet were posted on the Internet.28 In his August 6, 1998 resignation letter, Boulder Detective Steve Thomas openly accused then police chief Tom Koby and other officials of sabotaging the case: “During the investigation detectives would discover, collect, and bring evidence to the district attorney’s office, only to have it summarily dismissed or rationalized as insignificant.
The most elementary of investigative efforts, such as obtaining telephone and credit card records, were met without support, search warrants denied. The significant opinions of national experts were casually dismissed or ignored by the district attorney’s office, even the experienced FBI were waved aside.” Thomas was ordered not to question certain witnesses, “and all but dissuaded from pursuing particular investigative efforts. Polygraphs were acceptable for some subjects, but others seemed immune from such requests. Innocent people were not “cleared”, publicly or otherwise, even when it was unmistakably the right thing to do, as reputations and lives were destroyed. Some in the district attorney’s office, to this day, pursue weak, defenseless, and innocent people in shameless tactics that one couldn’t believe more bizarre if it were made up.”
c)  Lawrence Schiller & the Designated Patsy (Ramsey) Denver reporter Joe Calhoun takes aim at Lawrence Schiller, the made-for-TV “expert” who denounces all sex-ring allegations in shrill terms. “Schiller, along with talk show hosts and the more ‘responsible press,’ appear to be preparing the public for an indictment of Patsy Ramsey for the murder of her child,” Calhoun says. The patsy would be Patsy. ”
According to a source in Boulder, the script reads that the much physically and mentally traumatized Patsy Ramsey went to her daughter’s room that night and found that she had wet the bed and in a fit of exasperation and rage struck the child and accidentally killed her and then was assisted by her husband to try to cover up the crime. ” The bed-wetting scenario, repeated in best-selling books on the case and many a talk show, is insupportable upon a moment’s reflection: it entails a belief, Calhoun points out, that Patsy Ramsey “stuck her child in the head, killing her, and then tied a garrote around her neck and sexually violated her daughter’s corpse to cover up the crime.”
28.  Was it the Belgium Syndrome that inspired Boulder DA Alex Hunter to leak information to the tabloids to destroy his own investigators? “The former lead investigator on the JonBenet Ramsey case,” the Denver Post reported on February 16, 1999, “confirmed allegations that Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter enlisted the help of a tabloid reporter to discredit him. Former Boulder police Commander John Eller, who now lives in Florida, said he knew that Hunter had encouraged Globe reporter Jeff Shapiro to dig up dirt on him.”
In response, Hunter had no comment. “We’re not going to get drawn into it,” he said. “I simply do not want to get into any kind of discussion that could jeopardize the integrity of what we’re doing.”
30.  Another critic of Lawrence Schiller is John Judge, a JFK assassination archivist in Washington, D.C. Judge is convinced that the celebrated author is an intelligence asset: “It was clear to me in interviews when [Norman] Mailer was asked why he chose to do this book on Oswald, he based it on the fact that Lawrence Schiller had gotten private access to the Minsk KGB files on Oswald and was willing to share those with Mailer [for Oswald’s Tale].
It’s hard for me to imagine that Schiller was able to get those kind of documents based on his access to the KGB there or some sort of salesman- ship. I would think that in order to crack that nut, you would have to have some links to current KGB and US intelligence interconnections. Schiller goes back at least as far as 1967 as the source to the very first character assassination attack on the critical community in a book called Scavengers and Critics of the Warren Commission, by Warren Lewis. The subtitle of that book is `Based on an Investigation by Lawrence Schiller.'”
31.  Did the Belgium Syndrome infect key evidence, cause it to disappear from a paranormal Boulder evidence room?
In 1998, the AP reported, “Cops Lost Ramsey Evidence.” Seems “authorities reportedly have lost evidence in the murder investigation of JonBenet Ramsey, forcing them to retrace their steps. Detectives have told friends of the Ramseys they no longer have evidence from some nine interviews and palm prints that the friends had given earlier. In one case, evidence from two interviews conducted the day after the 6-year-old’s body was found was missing just two weeks later.” Naturally, “earlier reports of lost evidence were refuted by police.”
32.  And the so-called “mainstream” press has been manipulated as badly as the tabloids. Chuck Green, an award-winning, 32-year veteran of the Denver Post, believes “the evidence points to the Ramseys’ being involved in their daughter’s death.” So he says, but University of Colorado journalism professor Michael Tracey co-produced a documentary highly critical of the media coverage. Tracy: “Boulder law enforcement put a ring in Chuck Green’s nose and led him around on a leash. Law enforcement used the media to build a case that law enforcement knew it couldn’t construct in court.”
33.  Hal Haddon, retained by the Ramseys, complained that unknown police sources leaked false, damning information to the media information “exculpatory” to the Ramseys was not leaked.
34.  The Boulder Police Department maintains a tight lid on the case. A very tight lid. Officials instructed detectives to keep the investigation to themselves from the start. Detectives are not permitted to take laptops home. One detective, Sgt. Larry Mason, was removed from the case after speaking to reporters. The police refused to release the offense report, the first paperwork filed by officers responding to a call.
They suppressed the report legally by filing the report among the detectives’ investigative notes. The BPD has also declined to let go of a transcript of Patsy Ramsey’s 911 call to report her daughter missing. The tape was also kept from public scrutiny by placing it among the investigative files. A all search warrants, affidavits and inventories involving searches of the Ramseys’ Boulder home have been sealed by court order. Even JonBenet’s autopsy report was sealed tight. James J. Brodell, a Metropolitan State College of Denver journalism professor and an expert on Colorado’s public records, finds the extreme secrecy “excessive.” Without full disclosure, he believes, “the public can’t judge how well police are doing their jobs.”
35.  But search warrant documents released by court order state the county coroner concluded during the autopsy that the girl had been “sexually molested.” Detective Linda Arndt attended the autopsy, and reported that Boulder County Coroner John Meyer told her that JonBenet “had received an injury consistent with digital penetration of her vagina.”
36.  Alex Hunter’s former shell of “integrity” cracked when it slipped that he had tried to exclude a key witness from testifying before the Grand Jury, one who would side with the Ramseys. Last March, the Rocky Mountain News learned that Hunter’s prosecutors attempted to block Lou Smit, the homicide detective hired by the Ramseys, from appearing in court: “Hunter’s attempt last year to bar a witness from testifying appears to be unprecedented among metro-area prosecutors.”
No D.A. in Colorado, to their recollection, had ever gone so far as to obtain a court order to exclude a witness: “I’ve never heard of it before,” said Jefferson County DA Dave Thomas. Prosecutors may advise a Grand Jury, “but they do not have total control.” Bob Grant, the DA in Adams County, snorted, “folks” only prevent a witness of Smit’s stature from taking the stand when they have “:a particular axe to grind but don’t have evidence and just want to spread uncorroborated personal opinion.”
37. And so the first casualty danced another last waltz. Notes:
