Were the investigation something other than smoke and mirrors, my May 18, 2014 email to the investigating officer would have been answered: As you know, charlatan dog handler John Preston testified against Stephen Epperly.
I began advocating for Preston’s perjury victims in 2004, with letters to then-Florida Governor Jeb Bush on Wilton’s Dedge’s behalf. Dedge was DNA-exonerated in Brevard County later that year.
I ask that you reinvestigate Gina Hall’s homicide with public safety uppermost in your mind, Lieutenant Wilburn. Thank you for your time, I look forward to your response.
I am writing yet again in regards to your and your attorney-sister Heather Harvey’s apparent intent to profit with your Hazel Hollow by misleading the public about charlatan dog handler John Preston’s capabilities, as well as other dark clouds on Stephen Epperly’s conviction for Gina Hall’s no-body homicide.
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.
Preston – of course – was the very first to know that he couldn’t track scent: beginning in 1982 Preston was discredited by an actual perpetrator, then by skill-testing, and then by DNA – twice.
That convictions Preston participated in still stand without benefit of retrial is not only evidence of police and prosecutorial corruption, but of judicial corruption and corruption within the Department of Justice and FBI and Congressional Oversight of the FBI, as the agency participated in at least one prosecution involving Preston and at least one prosecution involving more-prolific charlatan dog handler Keith Pikett.
It covers many of the same topics I’ve addressed, and provides material that substantiates some of them. Senator, Graham served on the Senate Intelligence Oversight Committee for ten years.
The email was written prior to my learning of former Florida legislator/governor/U. Senator Bob Graham’s 1984 hands-on involvement in falsely reestablishing Preston’s credibility in Orange County for the purposes of keeping Brevard County frame-ups intact, with the taint of Linroy Bottoson’s prosecution already present. It is that committee’s responsibility to ensure that intelligence agencies adhere to their mandates, including the FBI’s mandate to ensure that public corruption does not affect trial outcomes, including public corruption that ensures upward mobility, like Jeff Ashton’s Orange County rise from prosecutor to State Attorney and Norm Wolfinger’s rise from Brevard public defender – including Gary Bennett’s public defender – to State Attorney.
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.
As you are a part of the Roanoke Times “Public Safety/Business Team” and described as the “Reporter covering state courts,” publishing Roanoke Times’ pictures of John Preston on your Hazel Hollow promotional sites can only ethically herald another Preston exposé.
Brevard’s comfort in framing Gary with Preston was apparently based on the knowledge that the FBI would protect them, as they were involved in using Preston in an adjacent county – Orange – to convict Linroy Bottoson.
