Date: Thursday, 28 December 2000, 4:05 a.m. Can a Child's Nursery Rhyme Act as a Trigger To Activate a Programmed "Sleeper" Assassin?
By Rayelan Allan
Sometime during the first week of December, a Rumor Mill News Agent called and told me that The Campaign for America's Children, a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization had begun running an ad she thought I would be interested in. The agent lives in the midwest, in the area where the four states of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri come together. Most people wouldn't have noticed anything unusual about the ad, but this agent has carefully studied everything Rumor Mill News has written about Mind Control and understood how different tones, words, and music can be combined to trigger a programmed "Manchurian Candidate" into action.
More specifically, the agent had read the article in which we talked about one specific song that was used to "trigger" "sleepers". A "sleeper" is a person who has been programmed, using drugs, hypnosis and/or electronic methods, to carry out a specif ic mission. After the "sleeper" is programmed,they are sent back, to live a "normal" life... until they are needed to carry out the mission for which they were programmed.
There are many different ways to "trigger" a sleeper. The earliest methods were "trigger words". As electronics advanced,"triggers" became tones,music, or a combination of the two. The "triggers" were embedded in music and videos. The "sleeper" was pro grammed to "activate" when the music or video that contained the "triggers" were played.
One of the "embedded tone and command triggers", which was originally created and used in programming "sleepers" ten to twenty years ago, was the song "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." The song, with its "embedded" triggering tones and/or voice commands , would be used in television and radio ads. When a specific "sleeper" or group of "sleepers" needed to be triggered, the ads would be played over the radio or television, in the area where the "sleeper" lived.
Certain major corporations and Madison Avenue advertizing agencies have a long history of working with the government. Nursery rhymes such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" can be worked into the advertisements that are played on television and radio. These ads can be targeted to population areas where programmed "sleepers" or "sleeper" are living, thereby activating only certain sleepers without having to have personal contact in any manner.
The other viable alternative, for most of the case subjects under our control, is to implement a "rider package" that will compel him/her to fulfill the functions of our level four programming, by placing an appropriate trigger in his mind. He or she will continue to lead a perfectly normal life until made active by a command from a command file. Any number of unrelated triggers can be implanted hypnotically--just in case the first one has been lost in the deep fog when you bring the subject back to t he Pre-Level One stage (state).
We always have a least 300-400, one way mission, Level 5's running about leading relatively functional lives in the different cities where we have placed them
On December 9th, I received an email from the RMNews Agent telling me that the Campaign for America's Children was playing their ad continuously. In the background of the soundtrack, the song "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"played the entire time.
I filed the information away and wondered if we would soon see another round of "mass murders". A short time later, I saw a post that had been put on the RMNews Agent's Forum the day before.
Friday, 8 December 2000, 12:27 p.m. Associated Press reported Thursday 4 teens (2 males, 2 females, ages 17 to 20) found dead in the living room of a row house, in Wichita, later reported they had been shot but no suspects or motive identified thus fa r... A week later, this story appeared on the RMNews Egroups page
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Four people, including a high school teacher, were abducted, taken to a bank ATM and driven to a field where they were shot to death in Wichita's second quadruple homicide in eight days. A fifth victim was wounded. Two susp ects were in custody, Police Capt. Robert Lee said.The day after Christmas, the following news story was flashed around the world:
WAKEFIELD, Mass., Dec 26
Seven people were killed Tuesday when a co-worker at an Internet consulting firm opened fire at the company's offices in suburban Boston. Officials said Michael McDermott, 42, would be charged with seven counts of murder in the shootings at Edgewater T echnology.
"THE GUNMAN went postal," one witness told reporters. Officials offered no motive for the shootings, though the company had recently announced some 25 layoffs.
McDermott had an AK-47 rifle, a shotgun and a handgun when police burst into the building. Police said McDermott was sitting in the lobby and had to be subdued when he was taken into custody.
Later reports stated that McDermott was an electronics engineer in the Navy for 8 years. Those who knew him reported him to be an edgy character dating back to his Navy days. It was reported that he has had psychiatric treatment and medication. It wil l probably be reported shortly that the medication he was taking was either Paxil or Prozac.
Studies published in medical journals have shown that anti-depressant medications can cause psychotic behaviors in 5 to 10 percent of subjects. Every one of the young men who committed the school murders had been taking anti-psychotic drugs. Some of th e young men had spent time in psyciatric hospitals. At least one of the young men was the child of a military man.
Some of the common factors in mass murders have been:
military backgrounds or government employment, anti-psychotic drugs, time spent in a mental institution or under the care of a psychiatrist. Michael McDermott had three of these commons factors. He was ex Navy,he had been under the care of a psychiatrist and he was on some kind of medication.
Much of the programming of "sleepers" takes place in mental institutions, military hospitals or drug treatment centers. The programming and the "triggers" are put in place at these places.
The group that has been running the ad which contains "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is the Campaign For America's Children. It's webpage describes it as "a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that seeks to educate the public on issues related to improving children's education. The mission of Campaign for America's Children is to inform the American people of the state of education in our country. We will be asking Americans whether they believe that parents should be in charge of the education o f their children, or whether the government should control the education of their children."
Rumor Mill News has no idea if the ad this group is running around the country is one of the "triggers" that was created to activate "sleepers" and send them on their programmed missions. However, it is quite a coincidence that so many ex government p eople are associated with this organization.
It is also quite a coincidence that the "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" ad was viewed in an area near the Oklahoma/Kansas border, and the two sets of quadruple murders took place at the same time the ad was running, in Wichita, which is in the same area .
It is also interesting that the Tech company that Michael McDermott worked for, had just moved from Fayetteville, Arkansas, which is very close to the area where the "Twinkle, Twinkle" ad was running.
The following was found on the RMNews Daily Updates page. Quentin Quisp has gathered many articles about murderers that meet the profile of a programmed "sleeper". It is an interesting compilation of information.
Murder As A Conditioned Response.....Why are there so many incidents in this country where people are commiting acts of violence such as murder andarson, and after being apprehended, they explain that "voices' ordered them to commit these crimes ? If a person was targeted by someone (military/police/CIA ? ) using mind control technology, and the target of the attack was unaware of the true nature of the assault; it would be possible to produce some very *interesting* results.What would happen if an uns uspecting person was bombarded day and night by voices and unpleasant noises which only s/he could hear and from which there was no escape ? What if this targeted individual was deprived of sleep for days on end by these voices/sounds ?
What if this "target" was also subjected to high levels of pain (electromagnetically induced using top-secret high-tech weapons) day and night for weeks/months on end ?
What if, after months of torture, the "voices" telling the "target" to KILL a particular person(s) ? What if the "voices" tell the target that if s/he does as s/he is told, the electronic torture/harassment would stop ? Is it possible to condition a p erson to respond to a certain STIMULUS (an electromagnetically induced "voice" which only the target can hear, and from which there is no escape) with a specific RESPONSE(e.g. murder, arson, rape, assault)? Is it possible to cover-up the TRUE nature of these events by labelling the person who was *forced* to commit the crime as "mentall ill" (paranoid/schizophrenic/delusional) ?
The answers to these questions *might* be found in the incidents listed below:
Atlanta Constitution , Thursday, March 25, 1999
by Celia Sibley Page number B2
The Stone Mountain youth who shot and killed a DeKalb Alternative School teacher in 1996 pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity Wednesday and was committed to a state mental hospital indefinitely.A paranoid schizophrenic, David Dubose will be evaluat ed annually and remain there until doctors and the courts are convinced he is no longer a danger tohimself or the community.
RMNews: The following is from Part One of Operation Open Eyes -- I can't help but wonder if "The Stone Mountain" and the "Stoney Mountain" mentioned here are one and the same: "If he has to perform a particularly suicidal or important assignment we do our job at Stoney Mountain facilities."
Testimony before Superior Court Judge Linda Warren Hunter, who accepted the plea, indicated there is little chance that Dubose, now 18, will be released any time soon. Dubose continues to have delusions and hallucinations, despite strong medication, me ntal health experts testified Wednesday. He is terrified of worms in his body, hears voices and was certain English teacher Horace "Bucky" Morgan was going to kill him that day, Sept. 25, 1996, witnesses said.
His violent act came without warning. He called out to the English teacher and then shot him in both shoulders, the back and abdomen. He was standing over the body and starting to reload the gun to fire again when a school official told him to put the gun down on the floor and slide it to him, according to testimony. Once Dubose was restrained, Tim Staley, a school disciplinary official, demanded, "Why did you do that?" Staley testified Wednesday. The boy replied,
"Mr. Staley, Dr. Morgan was going to kill me, so I had to kill him first."
PITTSBURGH - A court psychiatrist testified Tuesday that a man accused of killing five people in a racially motivated shooting spree is incompetent to stand trial. Dr. Christine Martone said Richard Baumhammers, 34, is a paranoid schizophrenic who hears voices, is delusional and suffers other mental problems. She said Mr Baumhammers seemed so detached in two interviews l ast week that she thought hewould not be able to help his lawyers in his own defense.
Defense counsel Dennis Charles asked a Lehigh County jury yesterday to acquit Michael Hafner outright or find him "not guilty by reason of mental infirmity" for the shotgun slayings of his parents in their Coopersburg home. He described Hafner as a sch izophrenic who, for at least a decade, was bedeviled by this "worst" mental disability.
Charles said one possibility is that Hafner did not do the killings. And he noted his client denies having anything to do with them. But he said that if Hafner did slay his parents, as the prosecution claims, he was not mentally responsible for his ac tions. He said there was no intent on the defendant's part to deprive his 71-year-old father and his 66-year-old mother of their golden years. "Michael had peculiar beliefs that had no basis in reality. He saw dark shadows out of the corner of his eyes an d got strange messages from television. He has memory loss and confusion."
Michael Hafner is a diagnosed schizophrenic who heard strange noises and voices that threatened his family, his wife of 18 years said yesterday. He told her that "if he ever went, they would take his family with him."
Saturday, authorities say, the long-suffering man fatally shot each of his elderly parents twice at close range with a .12-gauge shotgun in their Coopersburg kitchen. He's now on the loose and possibly armed. State police issued a nationwide alert and searched the Lehigh Valley by helicopter yesterday. But District Attorney Robert Steinberg said no one has sighted Hafner and there is indication he may be out of the area. Chris Hafner, who recently divorced Michael Hafner, 38, said that prospect has se nt waves of fear through her and their 8-and 10-year-old boys. Police in Tempe, Ariz., are watching her home to protect them and apprehend her ex-husband if he turns up, she said.
Autopsies yesterday showed that Leonard Hafner Sr., 71, and his wife, Jacqueline, 66, died about 5 p.m. Saturday,about the time neighbors reported hearing four gunshots,Lehigh County Coroner Wayne Snyder said. Their daughter found them dead about 1:47 p.m. Sunday in their 456 Locust St. home.
Michael Hafner served four years in the Air Force, from which he was honorably discharged, the ex-wife said. He was stationed at Andrews Air Force Base during the Vietnam War. But by 1986, Michael Hafner had turned to religious fanaticism, the ex-wife said. He began to hear voices and noises in his head, she said. "He just started flaking out," she said.
A State Supreme Court jury Thursday ordered Erie County to pay $1,066,000 to the family of a waitress who was stabbed to death nearly 13 years ago by a mental patient who had been released from Erie County Medical Center. A jury found the county neglig ent in the treatment of Donald Young, a paranoid-schizophrenic, who was released from the hospital a little more than two months before the Feb. 9, 1982, attack on Eleanor Mutka in Joyce's Lunch Box Diner, 95 Pearl St.
James T. Scime and Henry Nowak Jr., lawyers for the Mutka family, said the jury award to Mrs. Mutka's husband, Jacob, and their 12 children will be "substantially increased" because interest will be calculated from the day of the attack. The attorneys said they haven't computed the final figure. Scime and Nowak said Young, now 34, was released from a state mental hospital in 1989 after being found not guilty by reason of insanity in the attack on Mrs. Mutka, 53, at the restaurant. Nowak said Young is a pparently living somewhere in Buffalo.
Scime and Nowak said the county was sued for neglect for treating Young inadequately the three times he was brought to Erie County Medical Center beginning in September 1981 and "prematurely releasing him" on Nov. 27, 1981. When Young was arrested the day of the slaying, he told police he attacked Mrs. Mutka because "voices" told him to kill her. Erie County Attorney Kenneth A. Schoetz said he will appeal. He said the fatal stabbing was "a terrible tragedy, but the medical center was not responsible fo r her death."
SCHENECTADY (AP) - A young mother, licensed to provide day care in her home, said she killed her infant son in 1990 because voices told her "the baby was evil," District Attorney Robert Carney said Thursday. Schenectady County Judge Clifford T. Harrington on Wednesday accepted a plea of not responsible by reason of mental defect or disease on behalf of Joye Hinkson, who was 19 at the time. Prosecution and defense psychologists testified at the hearing that she was a paranoid schizophrenic and h er prognosis for recovery is not good.
Andrew Hunsberger lived in a spooky world that drifted between reality and a haunting fantasy of voices and secret plots against him. Diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic, Hunsberger believed that the Air Force, CIA, his mother and psychiatrist were p art of a clandestine plot that required them to sneak into his room at night to pump drugs into his body.
To combat the intruders, he started a tape recorder every night before bed and set an alarm to awaken him in an hour. When the alarm went off, he would turn the tape over, to allow the machine to continue recording noises in his bedroom at the Bush Hou se Hotel for another hour while he dozed. The contents of those recordings are part of Hunsberger's rather large psychological file submitted yesterday to Bucks County Judge Edwin G.Hunsberger wept quietly several times while testifying about his mental i llness and events that led to the tragic shooting.
"I would hear voices. I also thought I could read the minds of people on TV,"he said. "I thought I was being hypnotized and drugged. I thought the Air Force and CIA had something to do with it, and I thought my parents were in on it, too," Hunsberger t estified.
SANTA ANA - A man authorities say killed two children by deliberately ramming his car into a Costa Mesa preschool play yard was trying to stop "brain wave makers" from controlling his life, his lawyer said Thursday. In making his case that Steve n Abrams, 40, was legally insane at the time of the attack, Deputy Public Defender Leonard Gumlia told a jury that the defendant was a paranoid schizophrenic.
The condition began to manifest itself in 1993, the lawyer said in his opening statement, when Abrams was spurned by a woman with whom he had a brief relationship. Abrams began to believe that "somebody had brain wave technology that could control some body's thoughts and behavior," Gumlia said. The Santa Ana resident is charged with two counts of murder, Abrams sseven counts of attempted murder and the special circumstance allegation of multiple murder and lying in wait.
Sierra Beth Soto, 4, and Brandon Wiener, 3, died May 3, 1999, at the Southcoast Early Childhood Learning Center, after being struck and pinned beneath Abrams' 1967 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Four other children and a teacher's aide were injured.
Gumlia said that after Abrams' relationship with the woman deteriorated, she got a restraining order, and he was accused of violating it. He later pleaded guilty to stalking, but claimed that "voices" had tricked him. "To his growing horror, he came t o know there was a conspiracy against him," Gumlia said, which included the judge that handed him the short jail sentence for stalking. He believed government agencies had devised machines "to read the thoughts of ordinary citizens to see who was guilty" of wrongdoing, and "may even insert thoughts of killing" so that the "scumbags" of society would kill other"scumbags."
"Steve Abrams could not bear the thought of killing anyone," Gumlia said. "He didn't want to kill."He tried to do things to get the brain wave makers to leave him alone," Gumlia said. He held down a job and raised a daughter, but "they continued to lab el him a killer." Gumlia said his client "thought about killing children at the preschool for two years. He thought about taking action almost daily." The whole system needed to be exposed, he said, and in order to do that he "needed to do something big."
"Hurting and killing innocent children was not the goal,in and of itself," Gumlia said. "The brain wave makers may even try to kill Mr. Abrams for this. Mr. Abrams had to get to the real `courtroom,' and it would ultimately lead to his vindication ... he viewed the children as necessary casualties of war." Just before the ramming, Abrams encountered the woman who had spurned him, and wondered if the encounter was a coincidence, or if the invaders in his head "were trying to bring them back together," G umlia said. "After six years of anguish, Steve Abrams broke."
DAYTON - A man accused of holding a woman captive for more than a month and repeatedly raping her is a paranoid schizophrenic who believes God told him to father the woman's children, his attorney said yesterday. Kevin Caes, 33, of Clarksville, Tenn., is on trial on charges of kidnapping, felonious assault and 23 counts of rape.
He is accused of abducting a 25-year-old Nashville, Tenn., woman and holding her hostage in the basement of his parents' Dayton home. She eventually escaped by cutting a wire and setting off a security alarm. Defense attorney Dana Martino told the jur y that Caes believes God told him to save the woman from gang members, bikers and the police.
CROWLEY - Florida authorities plan to seek extradition of a man who hitchhiked his way to Acadiana after allegedly killing his uncle with a sword and lighting the body on fire.
Thomas Pellechio, who used the alias Dude Whitestone, was found by Acadia Parish deputies "acting weird and using profanities" outside of a local church on Sunday, officials said. He was arrested for disturbing the peace.
It wasn't until later that Acadia Parish Sheriff's investigators learned from his fingerprints that Pellechio, 29, was wanted in Miami for first-degree murder. Pellechio was also a subject on "America's Most Wanted" the night before, although he was n ot recognized. He is being held at the Acadia Parish Jail. Lt. Bill Schwartz of the Miami Police Department said Pellechio was considered a very dangerous fugitive after police found the charred body of his uncle on the front lawn of his house on June 10.
Around 6:45 a.m. that day, neighbors saw Pellechio dousing what appeared to be a pile of trash with gasoline and lighting it with a match, Schwartz said. Neighbors, who said they also heard screams, yelled to him and saw Pellechio run off with no shirt , shoes or socks on, Schwartz said. Using a garden hose, they extinguished the flames and found a body, which was later identified as Pellechio's uncle, Russell Cameron, 57.
Police suspect Pellechio hit his uncle in the head as he took out the trash, and sodomized him with an Oriental-looking sword with a 121/2- inch blade. Schwartz said investigators are looking into the possibility that Pellechio may have been sexually a bused, possibly by Cameron. "(The sword) was left in the body up to the hilt," Schwartz said.
Pellechio had a history of mental illness, he said, and had been in and out of mental institutions many times. He had reportedly been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. It appeared that Pellechio had also not been taking a prescribed psychiatric me dication, Schwartz said. Pellechio was found lying on the ground at an Acadia Parish church screaming that he was possessed by the devil and needed help, Schwartz said.
Eddie Cordova is a paranoid schizophrenic who stabbed his 9-year-old daughter at a Denver Kmart last year because he thought the Ku Klux Klan was going to ambush him at the store, a defense attorney said Tuesday.
He thought the only way he could protect her was to take her life,'' said public defender Susan Fisch. ``That's insanity. The act of stabbing his own daughter can only be described as insane.'' Cordova, 30, is on trial in Denver District Court to dete rmine whether he is sane and should stand trial on charges of attempted murder of Raydine Rene Ruby on April8, 1995.
Prosecutors say Cordova cooked up the KKK story to stay out of prison. But both sides agree on these details about the event: Cordova picked his daughter up after school and took her to the Kmart at Broadway and Alameda to shop for clothes and toys. Th ey had eaten pizza and been shopping for several hours when they went to the shoe department. While she was bent down trying on a new pair of shoes, Cordova asked his daughter,``Do you love me?'' She looked up and replied, ``Yes, I do.'' Cordova pulled o ut a 4-inch knife from his jacket pocket and plunged it into his daughter's abdomen. He placed his screaming, bleeding daughter in a shopping cart and left the store.
When customers and employees came toward him, he backed away and stabbed himself three times in the abdomen. The girl survived and will testify at the trial. Fisch said Cordova believed the customers and employees were KKK members in disguise, carrying guns. She quoted Cordova:
`If they killed me, she would be unprotected. I was all she had.''
The man accused of being the "Riverhead sniper" knew what he was doing when he shot four men in the winter of 1988, according to the prosecution's opening arguments in his trial yesterday in Riverhead.
But the defense contended that Yusef Abdullah Rahman, 21, was suffering from the delusions of a paranoid schizophrenic when he fired those shots and believed that he was on a military combat mission with Tall Man, Radio Man, Blaster and five other sol diers.
Rahman is on trial in Suffolk County Court on charges that he murdered Bernard Timothy Heaney on Dec. 5, 1988, outside his auto- body shop in Flanders, shot Richard Jensen in the head on Dec. 6, 1988, by firing through the window of Jensen's house, sho t Theodore Squires in the right shoulder after he answered a knock on his door on Dec. 7, 1988, and shot Donald Crump in the chin on Dec. 8, 1988, as he sat in his living room. Rahman is also charged with shooting at a Southampton Police officer on Jan. 1 , 1989.
In his opening arguments yesterday, Assistant District Attorney Randall Hinrichs said that the video taped statement that Rahman gave police clearly shows that Rahman knew what he was doing, knew what the consequences of his actions were, and knew it w as wrong. "To do what he did, this defendant obviously had problems," Hinrichs said. But that does not mean, Hinrichs added, that Rahman should be found not responsible by reason of a mental disease or defect. He advised the jurors that they will be "reac hing a verdict in this case.You don't come back with a diagnosis."Rahman's defense attorney, Eric Naiburg, said that expert testimony will show that his client is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and therefore should be found not responsible by reaso n of mental disease or defect.
Naiburg said that as a 20-year-old Rahman played with toy soldiers and was obsessed with military things. He said Rahman believed that the shootings were military operations.
Two psychiatrists testified yesterday that Yusef Abdullah Rahman, the suspect in a series of East End sniping attacks, quickly convinced them he was competent to stand trial after he overcame his initial reluctance to be quizzed by making a phone call to his lawyer.
The doctors,testifying before Suffolk County Court Judge Harvey Sherman, also said that two court-appointed doctors, who concluded Rahman was a paranoid schizophrenic not competent to stand trial, did not understand the law nor the narrow legal area - competency to understand the charges and assist in a defense - that they had been asked to consider.The doctors who testified yesterday had been retained by the prosecution.
Sherman held the hearing to determine whether Rahman is competent to stand trial. Rahman is charged with the murder of one man and the wounding of three others in the Riverhead -Southampton area during December. He also is charged with reckless endang erment for allegedly shooting at a Southampton Town police car on New Year's Day.
The prosecution's doctors, Seymour Block and Allen Reichman, both said yesterday that Rahman's account of voices over a military radio ordering him and some unidentified others to kill and shoot people might be of great help to his court-appointed lawy er, Eric Naiburg,in putting together an insanity defense for the trial.
Lincoln - A Newport, Neb., man, a diagnosed schizophrenic who sometimes referred to himself as "King Tut," Tuesday was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the fatal shooting of a neighbor.Rock County District Judge William Cassel ordered V ance "Rod" Alderman, 39, committed to the Lincoln Regional Center for evaluation after a brief court hearing.
Alderman shot 72-year-old Eleanor Thompson of Newport on May 24 as she sat in her home watching television. Her husband, Willard, a second cousin of Alderman's, was a few feet away in the kitchen at the time.
Psychiatrists for the prosecution and defense submitted reports Tuesday indicating that Alderman was mentally ill at the time of the slaying and could not differentiate between right and wrong. After ruling Tuesday that Alderman was fit to stand trial, Cassel then found him not guilty by reason of insanity. A May 17 court hearing was set to determine a treatment plan.
One of Alderman's attorneys, Clarence Mock III of Oakland, said that his client could not resist "voices" within him and that he needs extensive treatment in a locked facility. Alderman was first diagnosed as a schizophrenic at age 21. He has been in a nd out of mental institutions and on various medications ever since. Alderman's father, Sonny, a Rock County commissioner, said his son frequently ran away from his Newport home to escape internal voices and, at times, went days without sleep.
NASHVILLE - Convicted killer Paul Reid is a "delusional schizophrenic" convinced the government has surveillance videotapes that prove he didn't murder two restaurant workers, a psychologist testified Monday. Reid believes he is "a special test subject to be observed, to be followed and to be studied," Columbia University clinical psychologist Xavier Amador said during the second day of the penalty phase of Reid's trial.
Reid was convicted last week of first-degree murder in the 1997 deaths of Captain D's restaurant workers Steve Hampton, 25, and Sarah Jackson, 16. Jurors will decide whether to sentence Reid to death or to life in prison, with or without the possibilit y of parole. Criminal Court
Judge Cheryl Blackburn has said she hopes to get the case to jurors today.Reid is convinced the government has been watching him for years and eventually will come forward with the videotapes that show he is innocent of the murders, Amador said.
A college student charged with killing two people and wounding another in three shootings in April is a paranoid schizophrenic and not competent to stand trial, according to psychiatric reports filed Thursday. Christopher M. Flake,25,of Germantown comp lains of hearing voices telling him to hurt others and telling about the World Trade Center bombing in New York, doctors from the Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute said.
On the evening of April 5, Michael Fultz, 31, was shot to death in the garage of his home in the 2400 block of Bassfield near Bartlett. Flake once worked part-time for Fultz, a tennis court contractor. About 30 minutes later,Fred Bizot, 70, was gunned down while standing outside an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting at Holy Apostles Episcopal Church. Flake, who has admitted the shooting, had attendedmeetings at the church in previous weeks.
The following night, counselor Turner Carpenter, 67, was wounded in his office at Central Church at 6655 Winchester when a man identified as Flake opened fire on him. Flake had been to Carpenter for counseling in the past. Doctors at MTMHI say Flake, w ho was studying criminal justice at the University of Memphis, ``admits to auditory and visual hallucinations, (and) persecutory delusional thinking Needs complete stabilization with medications and therapy to avoid danger to himself and to others.'' The y said if involuntary treatment is not continued, Flake'smental illness is likely to deteriorate rapidly.
On Aug. 17, the state of Texas is scheduled to kill Larry Robison, a paranoid schizophrenic whose insanity was diagnosed long before he committed a terrible crime. This is like putting someone to death for having cancer or being paraplegic. It is freak ish that he ever stood trial at all.
Robison is the son of schoolteachers in Fort Worth. Ken and Lois Robison raised eight chil- dren together -- four from her first marriage (her husband died of a malignant brain tumor when Larry was 2), two from his first marriage and two of theirs. Sh e is now retired from teaching third grade, but Ken still teaches at the community college.
When Larry was a teen-ager, he began hearing voices, announcing that he had secret special mental powers and acting strangely. Lois Robison later learned that schizophrenia, a disease that often comes with a genetic heritage, ran in her late husband's family. Larry joined the Air Force but was back home after one year. Only later was the family told that the Air Force dismissed him because of his bizarre behavior. Rather than provide him with any care, the Air Force gave him a general discharge.
On the night of Aug. 10, 1982, Larry Robison murdered five people. He first killed his roommate, Ricky Bryant, in a hideous fashion, beheading and mutilating him in a manner that Larry believed was being dictated by the voices in his head, the clocks i n the room and the stories of the Old Testament. He then went to the house next door and shot and stabbed four people.
DEDHAM, Mass.- John Salvi's lawyer told a jury Wednesday that Salvi is a schizophrenic who was driven to kill two abortion clinic workers by delusions of a conspiracy of a conspiracy against Roman Catholics. ``It was the plan of someone who was mentally ill and acting on his delusions,'' defense attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said in his opening statement at Salvi's murder trial.
Salvi, 23, of Hampton, N.H., is charged with killing two receptionists and wounding five other people at the Planned Parenthood and Preterm Health Services clinics in the Boston suburb of Brookline. Salvi, who was raised a Catholic, believed Catholics were being persecuted by Freemasons, the Mafia and the Ku Klux Klan, defense attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said. Carney said the Dec. 30, 1994, shootings were triggered by the murders of Catholic priests in Algeria a few days earlier.
COLVILLE - The man accused of fatally shooting a school bus driver while seven horrified students watched is a diagnosed schizophrenic who hears voices in his head and believes he is the subject of "mind-control experiments," his lawyer said Wed nesday.
James E. Iverson also claims he has implants in his teeth that send electric jolts through his skull whenever someone uses a citizens- band radio near him, court-appointed attorney John Troberg said. Iverson says he sees black and white flashes, "like a strobe light," and his head grows extremely hot when the implants are activated, Troberg said. "He says the feeling is similar to that of a dog shocker," Troberg told Superior Court Judge Larry Kristianson during Iverson's first court appearance. "Mr. Iverson feels he is being used for some type of mind- control techniques."
Stevens County deputies suspect Iverson shot 61-year-old Frank Eslick to death with a hunting rifle Monday. The attack came about 3:30 p.m., shortly after deputies received a call for help from two loggers who said a man, thought to be Iverson, shot a t them as they drove past his house on rural McNitt Road, about five miles east of Barstow, Wash. Deputies were rolling to that address when Eslick stopped Orient School District bus No. 6 outside the cedar-sided house at 2721 McNitt to drop off one of Iv erson's sons, Stevens County Prosecutor Jerry Wetle said Wednesday. Seven students who were still on the bus told investigators a shot rang out just after the Iverson boy stepped off the bus, Wetle said in court.
