In January 1982 I lost my brother Roy to bone cancer. From what I understood back then about this kind of cancer was that it mostly attacked children! Roy had claimed his healing and was doing fine for a while from what I understand when they took his leg off just above the knee, that was in 1981. Everyone had been praying for his healing and I’m sure many rejoiced when he claimed his healing. I can remember the day when I got in from work at the Ada Iron and Metal Welding Shop where I was working in ‘81 and Grandma told me that Roy had been asking for me. when I asked her why? That is when she told me he was dying of cancer. You see, my marriage was a wreck, Brenda had left me the day after her twenty-first birthday and I didn’t really care because I was a drunk and didn’t give a flip about any one or anything except me or my next buzz! Brenda had left while I was at work in August 1980 and took our son Ben with her. The night she left I crawled into the bottom of a whiskey bottle and stayed there most of the time. So when Roy passed away just two days before his twenty-seventh birthday. I was so mad at God for not healing my brother I just kind of gave up on life myself. I was mad at God for months not caring if I lived or died I just didn’t care.
Mom and Dad sold off all the stucco equipment except for the old mixer later in 1982 and moved back here to Oklahoma and me being the drunk I was decided to just catch a ride with them. There just wasn’t anything left for me in California. I was drunk so I knew I couldn’t go back to work at Ada Iron and Metal Welding Shop so I went to work for my cousin Dean and Aunt Chris on the ranch. I remember the first time my Aunt Chris wrote up a to do list. I thought that it was for one day but come to find out the list was for all week! Then I began to breath again and I thought Aunt Chris was going to fall out of the chair laughing. Dean had me stretching fence, feeding cattle and taking a head count every other day and with all the chores on the lists to do I stayed busy. Didn’t make a lot of money but I had a roof over my head and if I was hungry there was always food to eat. When I wanted a bottle all I had to do was ask Dean to pick it up for me when he went to town. I had it made, no worries, I didn’t have to get sober to go after my booze! The life of an alcoholic I was such a jerk until about the first week of April 1983. I was tired of not having money in my back pocket so I decided I would sober up and go to town to see Floyd Pierce, he was the shop foreman at Ada Iron and Metal Welding Shop where I had worked off and on since 1979. I was wanting to see if I could get my welding job back at least I was a trained and certified AWS (American Welding Society) welder thanks to the corrupt cops and District Attorney’s office in Ada Oklahoma. In October 1978 they railroaded Randy Holland and myself into prison for two years over a busted window at the Social Service Center in Ada. According to Mr. Jacobs of the vocational and technical education of the State of Oklahoma I was a trained Special Metals Welder even though my training certificate AWS certification certificate didn’t say so. There is nothing I can not weld as long as I have the right welding process available to me. Enough! Back to April 9, 1983
This truck did not look this way when I first saw it in the middle bay of the three bay garage on the back side of the Shangri-La building on my cousin’s ranch. On the morning of April 9 1983 it was painted a black cherry maroon colored cab, the bed was flat black as it is here in this photo. In 1983 it had some very nice polished rims with black oxide tear shaped cutouts it was a real sharp looking truck. I have written about this in some of my earlier post so I am not going through all of this again, what I am going to do is let you know what I have learned as Fact since 2006 when my wife Brenda first showed me the pictures of Tommy Ward and Karl Fontenot being lead to the courthouse in Ada for trial. The pictures are in the book “The Innocent Man” by John Grisham. But here is the true story! The “Patty” that Bob Hightower and Bobby Allen drowned in the pond on my cousin’s place was not Patricia Hamilton from Seminole Oklahoma. Come to find out over the last couple of years 2012-2013 that Patty Hamilton had been called in to work the shift for another young lady who had been fired because she had a drug problem of some kind and her first name was Patricia and she also went by “Patty” it is this Patty that these fellows drowned in the pond! This is why Gary Pinkerson of the OSBI and Adam Whitney of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation could not find my witness credible because they did not know that there was two “Patty’s” and neither did I until I talked to Patty Hamilton’s brother on July 26th 2013.
Now everyone in Ada from Judge Landrith down to the Chief of Police and the private investigators know that I said Gary Rodgers came into the Ada Iron and Metal Welding Shop asking for Douglas Bailes two days after I had called in my sighting of the Girl that everyone in Ada was looking for to the county jail! Well it was not Gary Rodgers at all it was the man on the left! Yes that is right, it was Detective Captain Dennis Smith himself!! Dennis Smith was a liar in 1978 and was still a liar in 1984 and he is still a liar today because Bill Peterson and Chris Ross have been promoting his lies for the past thirty years by keeping Tommy Ward and Karl Fontenot lockup for a crime they never had anything to do with “The abduction and murder of Donna Denice Haraway” Now Bill Peterson and Chris Ross do you two want to prove me wrong?
From what I have seen and been through since 2006 about this Bill Peterson and Chris Ross have done their very best to protect the reputation of liar not realizing that it will destroy their own unless they are willing to make things right. So now I have just one more question for the OSBI and Chris Ross. WHAT ARE YOU WAITNG ON?
Because of Dennis Smith’s lies the murders of three young women have gotten away with it. As far as I know Bob Hightower and Bobby Allen have never been arrested for anything. I would never falsely accuse anyone of anything because I have already been there myself.
My prayer is that Thomas J. Ward and Karl A. Fontenot are out of prison very soon. Love and Prayers to all.
