There is likely evidence to DNA test in Stephen Epperly’s case, and if it matches Epperly – which will surprise me, given Preston’s perjuries, documented misconduct and flaky witness testimony – he may well relent and tell Ms. And if the DNA doesn’t match Epperly, it might match someone in the federal database, someone who might reveal where the body is.I’ve been mired in Brevard/Preston-peripheral corruption since 2001, which keeps my life in obvious danger.Every Christmas day, I think of her fall from the Norwegian Pearl cruiseship, and know that the runaround the FBI gave me about the results of their “investigation” likely means they didn’t conduct one.

Again, I remind you that the very newspaper you work for published Preston’s expressed doubts – at least twice – about whether he’d followed the correct scent in “investigating” Ms. If memory serves, I’d previously apprised you that: 1) Preston was discredited by the actual perpetrator of a federal crime in December of 1982, resulting in Dale Sutton being freed the following month, 2) Preston was discredited again in Brevard County, Florida in 1987 when Judge Gilbert Goshorn skill-tested Preston and found he could track nothing, resulting in Juan Ramos acquitted at retrial and release from death row, 3) Preston was yet again discredited in Brevard County – twice over – by DNA, resulting in Wilton Dedge and William Dillon’s exonerations, in 20, respectively, 4) there was egregious prosecutorial misconduct in Stephen Epperly’s Preston-tainted trial (below), just as there was egregious prosecutorial misconduct in the convictions of Juan Ramos, Wilton Dedge and William Dillon.
There is extensive information about Preston on my blog (link below).
The blog posts are backed by news articles when available as well as extensive communications concerning Preston not only with Florida public officials dating back to Jeb Bush’s administration, but with federal public officials dating back to his brother George’s administration.
Bottoson’s prosecution in Orange County, adjacent to Brevard – like Sutton’s case – involved feds.
Feds also used DNA-discredited dog handler Keith Pikett and other charlatans, and their own scent dogs have a high failure rate.
For the Roanoke Times, Preston said he may have followed the wrong scent trail.
As Preston – per Judge Goshorn’s skill test – could not track scent at all, Preston’s statement to the Roanoke Times signaled that he regretted participating in convicting Epperly.
In addition to the DNA in Wilton Dedge and William Dillon’s exonerations, Preston was discredited by an actual perpetrator in Dale Sutton’s Ohio federal conviction in 1982. Dillon with millions of dollars for their combined 49 years of wrongful incarceration in general population, Florida has likely spent more than Juan Ramos is entitled to by law for his five years on death row – 0,000 – to keep another Preston perjury story out of the news, aside from all parties acting in concert, including the media to keep Gary Bennett’s 30-year-old Brevard/Preston frame-up out of the news.
