Ted L. Gunderson, Former FBI Bureau Chief, Passed Away on Sunday, July 31, 2011 at Age 82 (Aug. 1, 2011)

On December 31, 1968, Franklin Credit Union was founded in a minority neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska. The primary purpose was to provide loans to minorities. In August, 1970, Lawrence E. "Larry" King, Jr., (a black man, not television talk show host) and fast-rising "star" in the Republican party, became manager and principle executive. Larry King was indicted by a Federal grand jury on May 19, 1989 and later tried and convicted of fraud and income tax evasion directly related to the Franklin Credit Union matter. He remains incarcerated in federal prison.

FBI- IRS RAID--On November 4, 1988, the Franklin Credit Union was raided and closed by the FBI and the IRS. Thirty-nine million dollars was missing. Shortly thereafter, reports began to circulate concerning pornography, videotapes, and photographs which had been confiscated from the Franklin Credit Union by the FBI. Then, in a trickle- which soon grew to a flood- other allegations began to arise. These allegations involved drugs, sexual misconduct, child abuse, pornography- even satanic activity. The names of prominent individuals in the Omaha community began to surface as those involved in these criminal activities.

GRAND JURY THROWS OUT CHARGES--On January 10, 1989, the Nebraska State legislature constituted a special committee to look into the allegations with State Senator Loran Schmit as Chairman. On January 30, 1990, Nebraska State Attorney General, Robert Spire, called for a grand jury to investigate allegations. February 6, 1990, former County District Judge Samuel Van Pelt was appointed a special prosecutor for the Douglas County Grand Jury, which convened on March 12, 1990. On July 23, 1990, after hearing many hours of testimony, the grand jury issued an unusual and unprecedented report throwing out all of the allegations concerning sexual child abuse and labeling the charges a "carefully crafted hoax".

VICTIM/WITNESSES NAME PROMINENT CITIZENS AS PERPETRATORS--Eighty children initially came forward as a result of newspaper publicity of the raid and subsequent stories in the local news. These children identified some of the most prominent citizens in the Omaha area as involved, including then Omaha Chief of Police, Bob Wadman; former Omaha World Herald newspaper publisher, Harold Andersen; Eugene Mahoney, former Omaha vice squad officer and later head of the Nebraska Forestry Service (he has a park named after him); former Omaha World Herald entertainment columnist, Peter Citron; Alan Baer, Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben, Financier; and Omaha County Judge Theodore Carlson. The children who came forward reported, among other things, satanic ceremonies of human and animal sacrifice.

VICTIM/WITNESS TROY BONER RECANTS HIS TESTIMONY UNDER DURESS--Initially four victim/witnesses involved in the satanic cult/sex/drug ring were cooperative. Two of the four victim/witnesses, Troy Boner and Danny King, recanted their testimony.

One of the children who recanted his testimony was Troy Boner, a young teenager. Troy Boner recanted after his brother, Shawn Boner, died allegedly of suicide by a Russian Roulette gunshot wound on January 17, 1991. Troy Boner told John De Camp, attorney for some of the witnesses, that his brother was afraid of guns. Boner later left the Omaha area and disappeared. Danny King has also disappeared.

Years later, on October 27, 1993, Troy Boner made a sworn statement in which he said that he had recanted his original testimony because, "I truly believed and still do believe that it was a situation where I must either ‘lie or die’, and at the insistence primarily of the Federal Bureau of Investigation officials who were dealing with me at that time, specifically Mr. Mott and Mr. Culver." (p. 306)

Two of the victim/witnesses who refused to recant were Alisha Owen and Paul Bonacci. They were both indicted for perjury on the basis of their testimony before the grand jury. They are now adults, but were children when they were first recruited into the satanic cult/sex/drug ring.

VICTIM/WITNESS ALISHA OWEN IMPRISONED--Alisha Owen testified at the grand jury in March of 1990 that when she was 14 years of age she had sex with the then Omaha Chief of Police, Robert Wadman. Because of this testimony, she was charged with perjury. While on bail awaiting trial, she attended college and was editor of the school newspaper. She was also an honor student.

On August 8, 1990, Alisha Owen entered a plea of innocent.

On November 9, 1990, Alisha Owen’s brother was found dead in a correction center cell, said to have committed suicide by hanging.

Alisha Owen was convicted of first offense perjury in 1991and was sentenced on August 8, 1991, to nine to 27 years in prison. During her prison term, she was in solitary confinement for a period longer than any female citizen in the history of the State of Nebraska.

Alisha was out on parole for a short period until September, 1997.

In September, 1997, television show "Inside Edition" reported that Johnny Gosch was still alive. Johnny Gosch is a highly publicized 1982 kidnap victim from West De Moines, Iowa, who has also been named as a victim in the Franklin child abuse matters, as described below.

One week after this show was aired, Nebraska authorities picked up Alicia Owen, and without explanation, said she must serve out the remaining lengthy sentence in prison. In spite of this, Alisha refused to recant. Alisha is still incarcerated. Alisha’s parents are raising Alisha’s daughter, Amanda Jayne, who according to Alisha was sired by Omaha Chief of Police, Robert Wadman. Alisha was 15 years old when she had Amanda.

VICTIM/WITNESS PAUL BONACCI IMPRISONED--In November, 1991, Ted Gunderson (this writer, see resume in reference list), was contacted by the Nebraska Leadership Conference and asked to become involved in the investigation of the Franklin case. Paul Bonacci, his first interviewee, then in his early 20’s, said he had been active in the operation of the satanic cult/sex/drug ring network since 6 years of age. Paul Bonacci first reported his abuse by Larry King, Alan Baer and others in 1986, to the Omaha Police Department, two years before the Franklin Credit Union case began.

Bonacci told me that when he was 10 to 14 years old, he was used as a decoy in malls, parks, etc., to lure other children his age near an automobile so the adult members could grab the victims and force them into the car. Paul and another youth would then jump on the victims and place a chloroform cloth over their mouth and nose. The victims would be taken to a secluded location and later auctioned off for up to $50,000.00 in Las Vegas, Nevada or Toronto, Canada. Bonacci advised me that the auction location in Nevada is approximately 50 miles north of Las Vegas on an air strip and that he saw children auctioned off, then placed in unmarked airplanes operated by foreigners with accents wearing turbans. Other children who were auctioned off were placed in campers after being drugged to ensure that they would be asleep in the event that the camper was stopped by the police. On one occasion, Bonacci recalled a DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) plane that was used to transport the children. Gunderson was later informed by a Michigan private investigator of an other missing child case that he had knowledge that a barn outside of Lincoln Nebraska was also used to auction off children on at least one occasion

Paul Bonacci reported having attended six auctions in which as few as six, and as many as 36, children were auctioned off. (See section on Johnny Gosch below for more on child auctions).

Paul and other children told about youngsters, both male and female, being taken from orphanages, foster-homes, and Boys Town, Omaha, Nebraska, driven to Sioux City, Iowa (184 miles) and then flown to Washington, D.C. for sex orgy parties with dignitaries, congressmen, and high level public officials at Larry King’s Embassy Row condominium. Larry King rented this condominium for $5,000.00 per month while earning a salary of only $17,000 per year.

Bonacci told Gunderson (this writer) that pictures were taken at the parties by Rusty Nelson, Larry King’s personal photographer. According to Bonacci, many of the surreptitiously photographed public officials were thereafter blackmailed by Larry King and others.

Bonacci told Gunderson that on a number of occasions he flew from Omaha to Los Angeles where he would meet a different man and woman each time. The unfamiliar man and woman would have up to five passports for different countries in different names. They would travel with Bonacci, pretending he was their teen-age son, and then make drug drops around the world. Paul told me he had made more than 100 such trips.

One of De Camp’s investigators told Gunderson (this writer) that Paul Bonacci has drawn a floor-plan of the inside living quarters of the White House, an area not available to the public.

Not long after the Franklin case became public in 1989, Paul Bonacci was arrested and sentenced to five years in prison for briefly touching a young boy on the outside of his pants. Bonacci has been diagnosed by at least three psychiatrists with Multiple Personality Disorder, a psychiatric disorder now called Dissociative Identity Disorder, that is almost always a consequence of severe and early child abuse. Bonacci admits that one of his personalities touched the boy, but abruptly stopped when he switched personalities and a remorse-stricken Paul reasserted control of his functioning. John De Camp, Attorney, and former long-term Nebraska State Senator, represented Bonacci. De Camp believes this abnormally long sentence was an attempt to silence Bonacci in the Franklin matters.

SEVENTY-SIX CHILDREN WHO REPORTED SEXUAL ABUSE RECANT OR REFUSE TO COOPERATE WITH THE INVESTIGATION--Following the dire consequences to victim/witnesses Alisha Owen, Paul Bonacci, and Troy Boner and Danny King, the seventy-six other children recanted their reports of sexual abuse in the Franklin matter.

WITNESS RUSSELL (RUSTY) NELSON ATTEMPTS TO PRESERVE EVIDENCE--Rusty Nelson’s testimony is consistent with that of Paul Bonacci. While testifying in U.S. District Court, Omaha Nebraska, on February 5, 1999, Rusty Nelson stated that as a private photographer for Larry King, his duties included taking photographs surreptitiously of specific people and to make sure to photograph certain people if they were close enough to be photographed together. In his testimony, John De Camp asked Rusty Nelson, "Who was at these parties?"

Nelson replied:

"Politicians, dignitaries, wealthy business people. Young people. Larry, as far as I could gather, I left when I stared putting the pieces together, you know, realizing there were two sets of books.

"There were very, various discrepancies in the credit union. And the fact that he obviously was into pimping gay prostitutes and children too, basically for influence purposes. Whether it be politicians or whatever.

"He had extreme pull in the National Republican convention. There was one day where we were on a plane and he had a problem. And he couldn’t get Wadman [then Omaha Chief of Police]. Couldn’t get anybody here to work it out. He placed a call directly to Ronald Reagan."

Nelson testified that he not only took pictures for King, but surreptitiously took many photographs of King with other adults and young people involved and retained them for himself. Rusty Nelson testified that he also secretly took and retained other incriminating documents, including audio-tapes, computer discs, and paper copies of documents, including ledgers, without King’s knowledge. He testified that he often mailed these back to his home, again surreptitiously.

Rusty Nelson’s testimony explains his attempts to keep these documents in his possession for the years since to protect his own life. Some of the photographs of Larry King taken by Rusty Nelson were shown during his testimony on February 5, 1999. Rusty Nelson testified that Larry King "flat out told me" that he had "taken care of" killing a man named Charlie Rogers and made it to look like a suicide; "This was another deal I believe through Wadman [then Omaha Chief of Police]." Nelson testified to one direct threat on his life by Larry King, and in the ensuing years, many threats conveyed with symbols (such as a Burning acorn) that Larry King used to mean, "Drop it. Or you’re going to get burned". Nelson testified on February 5, 1999 that twice, these symbolic messages were quickly followed by his being shot at. His most Recent statement, made in writing on June 22, 2000, from jail (see excerpts of statement below) states that this has now happened three times.

In direct relation to the documents Rusty Nelson has attempted to retain for his own protection, he testified to the following:

"Q. [John De Camp] Did you have an opportunity to have any other pictures that were not seized by the patrol [referring to the Oregon State Patrol where the pictures were seized]?

"A. [Nelson] Oh, yes.

"Q. Where are they?

"A. Some were given to the FBI, some were given to Gary Caradori [investigator for the Nebraska State Legislature], that’s basically what I had given him, what made him decide he had enough to–

"Q. Where did you give them to him? Did you meet him personally?

"A. Yes.

"Q. Where did you meet him?

"A. Actually there were a couple of different occasions. I’d given him a little bit prior to July. Location I can’t remember exactly where I gave those to him.

"Q. Was it here?

"A. It was in Nebraska.

"Q. Did you give anything to him outside of Nebraska?

"A. Shortly after the 4th of July [1990] I believe it was the day he was killed [July 11, 1990].

"Q. Where were you then?

"A. Out of Chicago.

"Q. What did you give him?

"A. A lot of pictures. Some computer discs. Paperwork. A wide variety of everything.

"Q. You’re telling us under oath that you met and gave materials to Gary Caradori in Chicago that did what?

"A. Well, it would have, if it would have got here, probably blew everything wide open. Instead he’s now dead along with his son.

"Q,. Do you remember what the pictures were?

"A. Various people at parties of Larry King’s. Some things they’d done, the drugs, stuff like that. Things that could possibly use to incriminate somebody or blackmail someone."

Rusty Nelson’s existence was effectively denied before the Legislative Committee by various witnesses, investigator for the State and others. When John De Camp asked Rusty Nelson about this, he explained that he was told by FBI agents to disappear; "I believe they were the ones that were also involved in this case." He said that some of his supporting documents were taken from him by "supposedly FBI agents".

Rusty Nelson also stated that, based on his close affiliation with Larry King, he believed King "had some association with the Contra ordeal through Michael Aquino, head of the "Temple of Set" (See Nelson’s statement below).

GARY CARADORI , KEY INVESTIGATOR OF FRANKLIN, DIES IN PLANE CRASH--The evening of July 11, 1990, Gary Caradori, the investigator for the Nebraska State Legislature, Special Committee, called Senator Loran Schmit, Chairman of the Committee, from Chicago and told him he had the "smoking gun". Caradori told Senator Schmit he would fly that night from Chicago on his private plane with his son en route to Lincoln, Nebraska, with the evidence. The plane exploded in mid-air a short time later while flying over Aurora, Illinois killing Caradori and his 8-year-old son.

Officials claimed the plane disintegrated in mid-air. They denied an explosion took place. De Camp writes in his book, "The Franklin Cover-Up"; "A farmer reported he saw a flash of light, heard an explosion, and saw the plane plunge to the ground .The eyewitness account of the flash of light and the explosion was on the early edition of television news in Nebraska, but was pulled from subsequent reports which said that the plane exploded on impact". (p. 2-3)

Bob Wadman, former Chief of Police of Omaha, and a perpetrator identified by the children (see above), was Chief of Police in Aurora at the time.

Caradori’s briefcase and the rear seat to the plane have never been found. Ted Gunderson (this writer), suspects his briefcase contained the evidence mentioned the previous night to Senator Schmit, probably the incriminating materials, including photographs, provided by Rusty Nelson to Caradori (See Rusty Nelson statement below). The rear seat to the airplane was not found, Gunderson suspects, to avoid evidence of a bomb.

The wreckage of the plane was examined on a military base rather than at a location under the control of civilian personnel. Under the Federal Delimitation Agreement, civilian personnel matters are handled by civilians and military matters are handled by the military. The crash was ruled an "accident" by government officials and not an act of sabotage.

Both Gunderson (this writer) and Noreen Gosch, mother of missing-child Johnny Gosch, later learned that Caradori had in his possession evidence that her son was a victim of the Franklin satanic cult/sex/drug ring. Paul Bonacci and Rusty Nelson have both provided detailed testimony attesting to this (see sections on Johnny Gosch below).

Gary Caradori repeatedly told friends in the weeks before his death that he feared his plane would be sabotaged.

Both Gunderson and Noreen Gosch recently learned from undisclosed sources (whose lives and the lives of their loved ones could be placed in greater danger should their identities be revealed) that a deputy sheriff of a local Illinois sheriff’s department was the first person on the scene of the plane explosion. The deputy sheriff said that there was child pornography all over the farm field. The man picked up a large number of photographs and other evidence. The FBI immediately arrived with three flatbed trucks, grabbed the evidence from his hands, cordoned off the field, walked the field, picked up every piece of evidence, took the plane and its parts and put it on the flatbed trucks, and told the peace officer, "This is confidential information and don’t ever speak of it again". The evidence has never surfaced again in the Franklin investigation or any other investigation.

The deputy-sheriff did not remain silent.

A few months later, as the deputy sheriff and his wife were driving, the couple suffered a head-on collision in which the man’s wife was killed and he was very seriously injured.

It is the opinion of Ted Gunderson (this writer), who has 49 years experience in law enforcement and counterintelligence activities, that this probably was a kill-by-car covert operation attempting to silence and intimidate yet another witness in the Franklin case, as probably occurred, according to sources, in the death of Kathleen Sorenson, the original complainant in the Franklin case.

Sorenson was driving on a two-lane road in October, 1989. Two elderly women in the car in front of Sorenson drove very slowly to slow her car down to a crawl. Another vehicle approached from the opposite direction at a high rate of speed. At the last moment, the women pulled over to the right shoulder to allow the approaching fast car to run into her.

Gunderson (this writer) was told later from inside sources that in a satanic ceremony, straws were drawn to see who would sacrifice themselves in the suicide mission to kill Kathleen Sorenson. The individuals in the fast-approaching car had prior arrest records for cruelty to animals, a common marker for Satanism. I, Gunderson, suspect in evaluating the accident that it was a satanic contract suicide. The other driver did not die, but could have. In satanic law, a person who loses his/her life in such a contract murder/suicide will be granted with more power granted by Satan. [This is the same belief system attributed to so-called "hijackers" of 9-11.]

Not long after Sorenson’s death, a teenager in a youth care facility told a worker, "You better watch out, or we will get you like we got that lady from Blair". Kathleen Sorenson was from Blaire, NE. The youth went on to describe a ceremony of drawing lots for the privilege.

Two other kill-by-car covert techniques are:

An oversized van pulls up alongside a car and shoots out the left rear tire. Simultaneously, the van sideswipes the car, forces the car off the road, and usually causes the car to roll, usually at a location where it will roll down a hill. A policeman who is part of the covert operation keeps the traffic flowing so there are no witnesses. If the intended victim(s) are not dead, they are beaten and killed by the occupants of the van.

Three vehicles flank the car, one in front, one in back, and one on the side. The side vehicle forces the car off the road and the three cars drive away.

GUNDERSON JANUARY 3, 1992, LETTER TO DON STENBERG, STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL--On January 3, 1992, based on the obstruction of justice in the investigation of the Franklin case, Ted Gunderson (this writer) wrote a letter to the Honorable Don Stenberg, Nebraska State Attorney General asking him to look into the matter. Gunderson cited the following irregularities:

* "Pornographic material has been seized ... with no follow-up investigation."
* "During the summer of 1990, the FBI reviewed the Senate Franklin Credit Committee Investigation files without the permission or knowledge of Senator Loran Schmit. It was later learned that a number of items are missing".
* "Alisha Owen’s first attorney, Pam Vuchetich, provided privileged attorney-client information to the FBI. She also failed to file a timely appeal in Ms. Owens's conviction on bad check charges. Ms. Vuchetich has reportedly been romantically involved with a FBI agent."
* "The Nebraska Leadership Conference has developed information that the FBI has not only leaked information to Omaha TV stations, but asked for and received money for this."
* "Larry King and others were never subpoenaed to the Douglas County Grand Jury".
* "Numerous individuals identified as perpetrators have never been interviewed by law enforcement officers."
* "Instead of conducting follow-up interviews, law enforcement officers, particularly the FBI, have attempted to discredit and harass the victims."
* "Paul Bonnacci has new information about the Johnny Gosch kidnapping case in Des Moines, Iowa, yet law enforcement officers refuse to interview him or to consider further investigation of the matter".
* "In February 1990 Robert Fenner, General Counsel for the National Credit Union Association, was advised by the FBI not to cooperate with the Franklin Credit Committee’s investigator, Gary Caradori".
* "On March 9, 1990 the FBI attempted to entrap Owen by taping an arranged phone call from Boner to her."
* "A deposition by former Omaha Chief of Police Robert Wadman disappeared during the Owen trial."
* "Wadman lied under oath claiming he was not carrying a gun during the period Owen says she was involved with him".

DON STENBERG, STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, RESPONDS TO GUNDERSON--Don Stenberg responded to Gunderson on January 28, 1992, by Stating that he had reviewed Gunderson’s, "impressions" and that, "Many of the issues and allegations you raise have either been addressed, are rumor, or are so vague and nebulous as to defy resolution by diligent investigation". Stenberg asked for information on the new allegations on the Johnny Gosch kidnapping case and the alleged FBI sale of information to Omaha TV Stations.

Stenberg concluded;

"We are assuming Mr. Gunderson that in the preparation of your letter of January 3,1992, you have done more than simply parrot unsubstantiated allegations made to you orally or which you may have picked up in written material reviewed and therefore have specific information to back up your concerns, hence the above request. We will keep certain other matters under advisement. In the meantime though, you are encouraged to send us any specific, substantiating material available to you regarding any one or more of the other items mentioned in your correspondence. Sincerely Yours, Don Stenberg, Attorney General".

GUNDERSON SUPPLIES SUBSTANTIATING DOCUMENTATION TO STENBERG--In a report dated March 10, 1992, Gunderson provided Stenberg with a letter and an eight-page report which elaborates, substantiates, and documents the 12 above-listed matters in his January 3, 1992 letter to Stenberg. (This full eight-page report is included in Gunderson’s report "Child Kidnapping in America: The CIA Connection").

Gunderson’s letter, attached to his comprehensive report, states:

"Your reference to my ‘impressions’ indicates to me that you do not place much importance on the issues outlined by me. Regardless, I hope you will review the enclosed report with fair-minded, professional, and responsible judgment.

"There’s a high level of frustration and animosity building among concerned citizens in Nebraska who are either victims or have seen enough through time to prove that there may be a conspiracy of sorts to cover up a series of indisputably disgraceful, scandalous crimes.

"You may not want to address their concerns, but you must agree that they deserve the attention such allegations require without being flippantly disregarded.

"It is because of their frustrations that I was hired as a consultant by the Nebraska Leadership Conference. As you can see by my resume (see Appendix), I am more than qualified to investigate this matter. I expect your level of professionalism predisposes to do the same."

Gunderson supplied this same eight-page report to:

William Barr, U.S. Attorney General
Judge William Sessions, Director, FBI, Washington, DC
Ron Lahners, US Attorney, Omaha, Nebraska
Governor Ben Nelson, Lincoln, Nebraska
FBI, Omaha, Nebraska
FBI, Omaha, Los Angeles, California

GUNDERSON REPORT OF SUBSTANTIATING DOCUMENTATION GOES IGNORED--Regardless of Gunderson’s letters to Stenberg, Nebraska Attorney General; William Barr, U.S. Attorney General; Judge William Sessions, Director, FBI, Washington, DC; Con Lahners, US Attorney, Omaha, Nebraska; Governor Ben Nelson, Lincoln, Nebraska; FBI, Omaha, Nebraska; and FBI, Los Angeles, California, none of these agencies or offices has ever conducted an appropriate investigation of this case.

Gunderson’s letter and report were ignored by all of the above individuals with the exception of Stenberg, whose letter is set forth above, and an acknowledgment letter from the US Attorney General’s office and the FBI, Washington, D.C.

Documentation in this report and the books, "The Franklin Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska, Second Edition", De Camp, John W. (1996), and "The Mystery of the Carefully Crafted Hoax", Nebraska Leadership Conference, forward by Ted L. Gunderson (1992), suggest a major cover-up.

BOOK, "THE FRANKLIN COVER-UP", EXPOSES SATANIC CULT/SEX/DRUG RING--In May, 1992, John De Camp, Attorney representing Paul Bonacci, and former long-term Nebraska State Senator, wrote "The Franklin Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska". This book exposed the Franklin satanic cult/sex/drug ring and the cover-up by the Grand Jury, police and FBI.

John De Camp advises in Chapter 14, of his book, "The Justice Department acting through the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office in Omaha emerges from the record of the Franklin investigation not so much as a party to the cover-up, but as it’s coordinator, rigging grand juries, harassment of witnesses, incitement to perjury, and tampering with evidence - federal personnel were seen to apply all these techniques in the Franklin case" (p. 182). Chapter 14 sets forth numerous instances of documentation that back up this statement.

"The Mystery of the Carefully Crafted Hoax" is a booklet that summarizes the Franklin cover-up and provides further documentation on the FBI and US Attorney’s active participation in rigging the Grand Jury, harassment of witnesses, incitement to perjury, and stealing and tampering with evidence.

FRANKLIN CONNECTIONS TO REPUBLICAN 1984 and 1988 REAGAN/BUSH PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS--"The Franklin Cover-Up" (1986) and Webster G. Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin’s book, George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992), expose connections between the Franklin satanic cult/sex/drug ring, and highest levels of the Republican party and presidential campaigns.

Larry King, founder of the Franklin Credit Union, now incarcerated for related criminal convictions, was appointed for the 1984 Republican National Reagan/Bush Presidential reelection campaign as

"Chairperson for the Black Voters for the Campaign" and "Chairmanship of the National Black Republican Council, Development Committee for Fund Raising". He sang the National Anthem at the 1984 and 1988 Republican National Conventions.

John De Camp explains that at the Dallas National Republican Convention in 1984, King threw a giant extravaganza at Southfork Ranch, years before exposure of the Franklin matters. De Camp, a Nebraska Senator at the time, was in attendance and saw youths at the party. Victim/witness Paul Bonacci testified to being in attendance and described the party in exact detail to John De Camp, details De Camp claims could only be known by someone who was there.

Bonacci’s reports are corroborated by other central victim/witness, the children in the foster/adoptive-home of Jarrett and Barbara Webb of Fort Calhoun, Nebraska. Jarrett Webb was a board member of the Franklin Credit Union. In 1985, children in the Webb home reported physical and sexual abuse by both Jarrett and Barbara Webb beginning in June, 1985. The reports of foster-child Eulice (Lisa) Washington, were supported in a polygraph examination (In De Camp’s book, "The Franklin Cover-up", a pseudonym of Nelly Paterson Webb is used).

The book, George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1986), states that in 1985, Eulice (Lisa) Washington, told Youth Care Worker, Julie Walters, as documented in her Department of Social Services March 25,1986 report, that Larry King ran a massive child sex, homosexual, and pornography industry. She described how beginning in tenth grade, she had been taken by plane by Larry King, with other youths, to be used as a child prostitute at parties in Washington, Chicago, and New York. Lisa said that at these parties, she sat "looking pretty and innocent" and guests could engage in any sexual activity they wanted except penetration.

Lisa named Vice President George Bush as in attendance at least twice, according to Walters’ report. Lisa said she had first met Mr. Bush at the Dallas 1984 Republican Convention.

She also saw Vice President George Bush , Sr., at a party in Chicago in September or October of 1984, accompanied by two large white males. Walters’ report states; "She [Lisa] indicates that she set [sic] on a table at the party while wearing nothing but a negligee. She stated that George Bush saw her on the table. She stated she saw Vice President George Bush pay King money, and that Bush left the party with a nineteen year old black boy named Brent." According to the Chicago Tribune of October 31, 1984, George Bush, Sr., was in Illinois campaigning for congressional candidates at the end of October, 1984.

Walters’ report indicates that Lisa said she saw George Bush, Sr., again at a party hosted by Larry King in Washington, D.C., in which there were no women, only men perfectly made-up to look like women, older men and men in their younger twenties. She said she saw sodomy committed at those parties. For citations from "George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography", see:

1. Omaha Sex Scandal



The report by Julie Walters also indicates that the children in the Webb home were sometimes taken to "meetings/parties" that Larry King attended at the Omaha Girls’ Club. The report indicates that "there were about ten to fifteen older men present and about twenty-five young teenage girls" at one of the parties.

The report also indicates that the children in the Webb home reported that approximately every other week, they were taken by the Webbs to parties at Larry King’s home. They said that there were usually about thirty adults present, some prostitutes, and about twenty kids. The prostitutes said they gave half of their pay to Larry King. The children said that they talked to boys at these parties who said they were from Boys’ Town. They said that some of the boys at the party were given new cars. They reported that sexual activities did not always occur behind closed doors and sometime involved more than two people.

Gary Caradori, investigator for the Nebraska State Legislature (killed in a suspicious plane explosion as detailed above), documented that the aunt of Eulice (Lisa) Washington said that the children in the Webb home said that they had been transported around the country several times, and that one of the children, possibly Lisa’s youngest sister, had kept a book of matches from Texas, where the Republican convention was held in 1984.

De Camp’s book, "The Franklin Cover-up", includes notes of investigator Gary Caradori stating that Bonacci, beginning at 8 years of age, had been involved in extensive homosexual activity" and had been taken on 200 to 300 trips around the country to destinations including Washington. D.C.; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri; Austin, Houston, and Dallas, Texas; Miami and Tampa, Florida; Pasadena, California; and Grand Island and Lincoln, Nebraska. Caradori wrote that Bonacci told him that "Some of those trips he thought involved politicians from Washington, D.C.. However, he didn’t know anyone by name because of his young age." (P. 100-102).

On November 6, 1997, Gunderson (this writer) was in Denver, Colorado, giving a lecture. At the conclusion of the lecture, a man informed me that at 3:00 a.m. that morning, 210 children boarded an airplane with two male adults and one female adult. My source said that a friend serviced the plane and asked the female adult where the children were from and that she said, "Child Protective Services" and "Mind your own business". The individual who serviced the plane checked the service records and learned that the plane was en route to New York to refuel, and then on to Paris France. Several months later, I re-contacted my source and asked if I could interview the airplane maintenance service man. My source informed me that the service- man had received threats, had quit his job, and was in hiding.


In 1989, Craig Spence, lobbyist and political operative, made headlines due to exposure of his call boy ring that catered to the political elite, offering children to its clients. In his book, "The Franklin Cover-up", De Camp writes:

"Spence’s activities made banner headlines in the Washington Times on June 29, 1989: ‘Homosexual prostitution inquiry ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush’. Spence’s access was so good, that he could arrange nighttime tours of the White House for his clients. The Times added on August 9, 1989, that Spence ‘hinted the tours were arranged by top level’ persons, including Donald Gregg, national security advisor to Vice President Bush...’ Spence, according to friends, was also carrying out homosexual blackmail operations for the CIA" (P. 169).

According to one of Gunderson’s (this writer) confidential sources, Craig Spence was a CIA operative. Connections were made between Larry King’s child sex ring and that of Craig Spence. De Camp continues:

"According to a Washington, D.C. investigative journalist who researched the Spence ring, ‘The way we discovered Larry King and this Nebraska-based call boy ring, was by looking through the credit card chits of Spence’s ring, where we found King’s name.’ Another investigator, with personal knowledge of the call-boy rings operating in Washington, put it this way: ‘Larry King and Craig Spence were business partners. Look at two companies, ‘Dream Boys’ and ‘Man to man", both of which operated under another service, ‘Bodies by God’. " (p. 169)

Craig Spence was found dead in 1989 of alleged suicide, another in a long chain of suspicious deaths connected to the Franklin case, President Reagan, and Vice President Bush.

LARRY KING AND FRANKLIN TIED TO IRAN-CONTRA DRUGS-FOR-ARMS AFFAIR--De Camp, in his 1986 book on the Franklin case, cites an Omaha World-Herald May 21, 1989 article CONNECTING Franklin to Iran-Contra; "In the 61/2 months since federal authorities closed Franklin, rumors have persisted that money from the credit union somehow found its way to the Nicaraguan contra rebels ." (P. 171).

Carol Stitt, Foster Care Review Board Executive Director, had notes that referenced Larry King running guns and money into Nicaragua. De Camp writes; "Her notes on December 21, 1998 reflect that she talked with [James] Flanery [reporter for the Omaha World Herald] and in addition to the Nicaraguan info he was also now talking about CIA involvement and provided info that yesterday (Dec. 20) the FBI quit cooperating with him. Apparently Flanery told Carol he was close to resigning and the reason he didn’t think anyone wanted to do anything was because of the possibility of a White House connection" (p. 170).

Rusty Nelson has reported new evidence on a Franklin and Iran-Contra connection as of June 22, 2000, jeopardizing his life further. Nelson’s June 22, 2000, written statement states: "An other dark villain was Colonel Akino [Lieutenant Colonel Michael Aquino] to whom King paid off with a suitcase of bearer bonds and cash earmarked for covert Contra operations." (Further evidence of involvement of Larry King with Lieutenant Colonel Aquino is described below).

Knowledge of the Iran-Contra Affair may also be the true cause of the essentially unpublicized June 3, 2000 alleged "suicide" of John Millis, Staff Director of House Intelligence Committee. In 1996, Millis had investigated and uncovered the Clinton administrations’ role in helping Iran transfer arms to Bosnian Muslims. The suspicious nature of the recent death of Millis and the lack of media coverage is described in more detail below.

LARRY KING SUDDENLY TAKEN TO PSYCHIATRIC FACILITY--De Camp writes that "On the morning of February 7, 1990, Larry King was making plans to attend one of those fund raising events in Omaha, featuring President George Bush. Out of the blue, US Magistrate Richard Kopf suddenly ordered King to be taken to a federal psychiatric facility in Springfield, Missouri, for ‘tests’...The word in Omaha was that King, indicted in Federal court on May 19, 1989 on forty counts of financial wrongdoing, was planning to ask Bush for help." (De Camp, 1986, p. 165-166).

DOCUMENTARY "CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE" NOT AIRED AND DESTROYED--In mid-1993, following the circulation of "The Franklin Cover-up" for almost a year, the Yorkshire Television of England sent a topnotch investigatory team to produce a documentary on the Franklin. They conducted a national investigation for 10 months, interviewing, filming, and documenting the Franklin story, finding new witnesses, and uncovering new evidence. Their documentary, "Conspiracy of Silence" was scheduled to be aired nationwide on the Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994. It was listed in the national publication, "TV Guide".

At the last minute, and without explanation, it was pulled from the air.

In late 1995, a copy of the almost-complete production was anonymously sent by mail to John De Camp. Troy Boner had withdrawn his previous retractions in an affidavit on October 27, 1993. De Camp explains in his book that Yorkshire Television had, at great expense, obtained a polygraph test for Troy Boner and was convinced he was telling the truth. Troy Boner was featured in the documentary.

The documentary also focused on:

* The use and involvement of Boy’s Town children and personalities by individuals in the Franklin case, particularly Larry King and Peter Citron.
* The linkage of the Franklin case to top politicians in Washington, D.C.
* The improprieties of these politicians and businessmen and compromising of these people by Larry King, through drugs and using children for pedophilia.

In mid-1996, John De Camp learned through a source he is not at liberty to disclose, the events that caused "Conspiracy of Silence" to not be aired. When the show was sent to the United States, customs officials seized it and held it up as being "pornographic material". Attorneys for Discovery Channel and Yorkshire Television were able to get the documentary released.

The lawyers then went through the film for months, making changes and deletions, so the show would ultimately survive any claims of libel or slander that any individuals identified in the documentary might attempt to bring. The lawyers cleared the documentary for broadcast. De Camp writes:

"During the several months that the documentary was being prepared and advertised for showing, major legislation impacting the entire future of the Cable T.V. industry was being debated on Capitol Hill. Legislation, which the industry opposed, was under debate for placing controls on the industry and the contents of what could be shown. Messages were delivered in no uncertain terms from key politicians involved in the cable T.V. battle, that if the ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ were shown on the Discovery Channel as planned, then the industry would probably lose the debate. An agreement was reached. ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ was pulled, and with no rights for sale or broadcast by any other program; Yorkshire T.V. would be reimbursed for the costs of production; the Discovery Channel itself would never be linked to the documentary ; and copies of ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ would be destroyed."

JOHNNY GOSCH, KIDNAPPED CHILD, CONNECTION TO FRANKLIN CASE--In 1989, Paul Bonacci confessed to his attorney, John De Camp, his part in the kidnapping of 12-year-old Johnny Gosch on September 5, 1982, in West De Moines, Iowa, a highly publicized missing child case. Paul Bonacci was 14, almost 15, years old at the time.

Rusty Nelson also testified in U.S. District Court, Omaha Nebraska, on February 5, 1999, that one of the victims in the Franklin case was Johnny Gosch.

Noreen N. Gosch, Johnny’s mother, received almost no assistance from the local West De Moines police or the FBI in investigating her case. She held a press conference and received her first death threats. One male telephone caller said, "Stop making waves or you will die". Noreen Gosch now realizes she had begun "knocking on the door" of the Franklin satanic cult/sex/drug ring case.

Noreen Gosch obtained private investigator Dennis Whalen who had solved a missing child case in Carter Lake, Iowa. While investigating the Gosch case, Whalen told Noreen Gosch of a slave auction in Houston, Texas. He asked her "Would you go $50,000 to buy your son back, if he goes across the auction block?" Noreen Gosch borrowed the funds. Unfortunately, Whalen informed Noreen Gosch that Johnny was not at the Texas auction. Whalen was discovered as helping Noreen Gosch and was forbidden from attending other auctions.

Noreen Gosch reports that within six months of Johnny’s kidnapping, a young man named Paul Bishop contacted her. He came to Des Moines and identified himself as CIA. He told Noreen that an international kidnapping/pornography ring kidnapped Johnny. He told her Johnny was still alive and being sexually used in pornography, prostitution, and perversion. He said he wanted Noreen’s help. Noreen Gosch replied, "How can I help you, what does the CIA want with me?" He replied, "We need one stable parent in this situation, to act, when directed to speak out to the public as to what happened to your son."

Noreen Gosch doubted who he was. To convince her, he produced a complete dossier of her entire family including those who have died. She was given a code name of "Firefox" for him and a phone number to contact him. She learned that Bishop’s location was Langley Air Force Base, CIA Headquarters.

Paul Bishop arranged for Noreen Gosch to testify in August 1984, at the "Organized Crime Senate Hearings" in Washington, D.C., before Senator Specter. Books were made available by the FBI showing children in a Sears Roebuck type of catalog offering children for sale.

Noreen Gosch reports Paul Bishop eventually vanished without a trace. Suddenly the phone number was no good.

Noreen Gosch reports that it was to be years before she learned that the CIA was part of the International kidnapping and pornography ring. She and others have attempted to obtain copies of the catalog of children for sale and, "There has never been a single reply to any request to produce this document". She also attempted to obtain from the Washington Press Core photographs from the hearing, also with no success. Noreen Gosch reports that Paul Bishop was in his early 20’s and called her, "Mom". She now wonders if he was one of the "lost" children.

Noreen Gosch founded "The Johnny Gosch Foundation", a month after the kidnapping and developed a program called "In Defense of Children". Noreen Gosch wrote the "Johnny Gosch bill", which was passed into law in Iowa on July 1, 1984. A year later, Missouri as well as seven other states adopted the bill and passed it into law. This law, which is still called "The Johnny Gosch Law", provides the immediate involvement of police when a child is missing, instead of the previous 72 hour policy of waiting.

Terry Dunn Meurer, with Dave Bell Associates at that time, and now with "Unsolved Mysteries" produced a documentary called "MISSING", which included the story about Johnny and three other children who were missing. Some of these children were found dead and the others are still missing. That documentary was aired in 1983 on HBO.

NOREEN GOSCH AND PAUL BONACCI MEET--Following Paul Bonacci confessing in 1989 to his part in the kidnapping of her son, Noreen Gosch met with him. Bonacci told her that her son was taken into a "ritual abuse/mind control program called the Monarch Program". He said that the children taken were used for pornography, prostitution and various other forms of abuse and control. This program was started and sanctioned by our government under the CIA MK-Ultra mind-control program, a cold war covert operation beginning after World War II following Operation Paperclip. In Operation Paperclip United States Intelligence brought over hundreds of Nazi scientists to further develop their mind control techniques and human robots developed in the concentration camps for the purpose of assassination, prostitution, drug smuggling, and other covert intelligence operations. (See web-sites on mind control below in section on Michael Aquino)

Paul Bonacci told Noreen Gosch that Johnny Gosch was living in hiding.

JOHNNY GOSCH VISITS HIS MOTHER IN 1997--Johnny himself, came to see his mother in March 1997, then 27 years old. He confirmed all that Paul Bonacci had told her of the case and asked for her helping in bringing justice. He shared the names of people who were responsible. Finally after all these many years, Noreen knows the "who, how, and why" of her son’s kidnapping. She vowed to her son she would do something about this and set about in a plan to bring the entire story out. She realized that she must keep her promise to her son and not reveal that he had been to her home. He had begged her not to share that unless it was absolutely necessary.

Noreen Gosch kept this confidential until March of 1999, when she appeared in court to testify for Paul Bonacci, who had been vindicated by a Federal Court order and allowed to bring a civil suit against Larry King. Noreen, while on the witness stand was asked by John DeCamp, Paul Bonacci’s attorney, "if she had ever seen or talked to her son in all the years he had been missing". Being under oath at the time, she had to answer with the truth. This led to a huge onslaught of press coverage. Some people believed her and others made vicious attacks upon her character, calling her everything from a liar to crazy. The faithful who know her and followed this story knew differently. This led to another appearance on "Inside Edition" and other network TV shows.

JOHNNY GOSCH STILL ALIVE AND IN HIDING--Based on Noreen Gosch’s investigative sources, she recently learned that her son is still alive and in hiding. He is afraid of being killed to prevent his testimony and he is afraid of being charged for crimes he was forced to commit by his abductors and in his efforts to flee his abusers. Johnny Gosch now 30 years old.

Noreen N. Gosch’s continued goal is to bring out the truth on Johnny’s kidnapping and is prepared to do whatever is necessary, including radio and television shows, magazine and newspaper interviews. Noreen N. Gosch can be reached by phone at 515-221-3220 and by Email at .

NOREEN GOSCH MEETS WITH GARY CARADORI’S WIDOW--On June 22, 2000, Noreen Gosch informed me, Ted Gunderson, that in mid-June, 2000, she met at length with Gary Caradori’s widow, Mrs. Sandy Caradori. Mrs. Caradori told Noreen Gosch that within two months of Mr. Caradori being killed, he told her that he had received information on Johnny which led him to two prisons to investigate further. Upon returning home from these investigations, he told his wife, "I know what happened to Johnny Gosch, the boy is still alive, I’m going to call his parents." To her knowledge, he did telephone the Gosch home. Noreen Gosch indicated that Mr. Caradori must have spoken with Mr. Gosch, Johnny’s father, who in turn kept the information about Johnny being alive from his wife, Noreen.

Noreen Gosch reports that she now knows that Mr. Gosch is connected to the Franklin case. She is on the process of formally releasing his information to the press. She has already provided this information in detail to many concerned parties.

FBI ATTEMPTS TO KILL AIRING OF GOSCH STORY ON AMERICA’S MOST WANTED--Following Bonacci’s 1989 confession to participating in the kidnapping of Johnny Gosch, investigators for the television show, "America’s Most Wanted", began working with the investigators for Noreen Gosch and prepared to televise the story.

Noreen Gosch testified in U.S. District Court, Omaha Nebraska, on February 5, 1999, (the Bonacci suit against Larry King) that within one or two weeks of the "America’s Most Wanted" story airing, "the FBI in Quantico, Virginia contacted America’s Most Wanted and told them to kill the story. They did not want the Johnny Gosch story broadcast". John Walsh aired the story anyway. When John De Camp asked Noreen Gosch if she knew why the FBI wanted to kill the story, Noreen Gosch responded: "Well, of course. It would have opened up the biggest scandal in the United States, bigger than the Iran Contra story. Bigger than President Clinton’s infidelities."

CIA KILLS "20-20" SHOW ON JOHNNY GOSCH--ABC’s "20/20" contacted Noreen Gosch in 1997, asking to do a one hour special program called "The Johnny Gosch Story". The documentary was intended to depict the 17 year journey of Noreen Gosch in her search for her son, Johnny. In the process of her investigation, Karen Burnes of "20/20" Uncovered 45 other victims of child sexual abuse, satanic abuse, and kidnapping, several of whom knew Johnny and were with him on many occasions.

One of the victims interviewed in this show is the almost 30-year-old son of Anton Szandor LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, author of the "Satanic Bible". During this interview, Anton LaVey’s son said he was with Johnny Gosch several times and Johnny saw him several times. LaVey’s son told "20/20" that his father, Anton, had castrated him. The only reason he was willing to talk to "20/20" was because his father was dead and he no longer feared him.

Karen Burnes and the film crew all had to sign a "hold harmless clause" absolving ABC of any liability if any of them were to be killed during the process of telling this story. To our knowledge, never before had any producer and crew been forced to sign such an agreement.

The Johnny Gosch Story was scheduled for airing April of 1998, but was postponed four times. Now Karen Burnes is apparently very ill and hospitalized with a disease of unknown origin. She remains Extremely ill. Before departing for medical leave, Karen Burnes informed Noreen Gosch that Frank Snepp, who Gosch claims is a former CIA agent, would be taking over the investigative reporting for the show.

Frank Snepp claimed the documentary had no validity unless Johnny was turned over to Congressional protection. However, many congressmen and other politically elite have been accused by Franklin abuse victims and other victims (including Brice Taylor) of being their owners and handlers under circumstances that have re-established slavery in this country on the part of the ruling elite.

For about 6 months, Ira Rosen, Senior producer with "20/20" was unaware that Frank Snepp had taken over the investigatory reporting for the show. He was outraged when he heard the news.

Noreen Gosch was then informed the show would be "on the shelf" indefinitely. Approximately,$300,000 has been spent on this one hour special and it sits on a shelf at ABC’s "20/20". Frank Snepp had a great deal to do with the halting of the TV special on Johnny Gosch. He claims to be a former CIA agent. Once CIA, always CIA!

FRANKLIN CONNECTIONS TO SATANIST MICHAEL AQUINO AND JOHNNY GOSCH--Anton LaVey founded the Church of Satan in 1966. He wrote "The Satanic Bible" in 1969 (New York: Avon Books). Michael Aquino was one of its leaders. Michael Aquino split from Anton LaVey in 1975 and in the same year, founded his own satanic organization known as the Temple of Set, according to a document of the California "Office of Criminal Justice Planning: Research Update, State of California, Volume 1 (6), Winter, 1989-1990" entitled "Occult Crime: A Law Enforcement Primer". Aquino has written "The Book of Coming Forth by Night"

Noreen Gosch found out that Michael Aquino was involved in the crimes perpetrated against her son, Johnny when Noreen Gosch met with Paul Bonacci in the Nebraska prison in 1991.

Bonacci described to her the kidnapping and sexual abuse of Johnny. He named the parties involved in the actual kidnapping. He said a man named Sam brought pictures of Johnny to a motel room the night before the kidnapping, indicating that this was the boy they were to "grab" the next morning. At a later time, Bonacci correctly identified a picture of Sam Soda of Des Moines, Iowa, from a line-up of 20 photographs, as the man who brought the photograph of Johnny to the motel. Bonacci also indicated Sam was there watching as Johnny was repeatedly sexually abused while being photographed. (Rusty Nelson reported Sam Soda as the man who introduced him to Larry King.)

Bonacci told Noreen Gosch that 14 days after Johnny was kidnapped, known Satanist Colonel Michael Aquino came to the house outside of Sioux City Iowa, where Johnny had been kept since the kidnapping. Michael Aquino, then a Colonel in the Army, paid several thousand dollars to the kidnappers, took Johnny and left for Colorado with him.

In March of 1998, when Johnny Gosch came to his mother’s home in the middle of the night, he told his mother about his abduction and named Colonel Michael Aquino as a central perpetrator. Aquino was then an officer in the military reputedly in charge of "Operation Mind War" for the U.S. government. "Operation Mind War" was a sub-project of "Project MK-Ultra" which grew out of "Operation Paperclip". "Operation Paperclip" was a covert operation in which large numbers of Nazi scientists were brought to the United States from the Nazi death camps of World War II to learn from their techniques of torture, drugs, hypnosis, mind control, and genetic experimentation for covert operations.

Aquino has claimed to be the son of a Nazi S.S. officer. The "MK-Ultra Mind Control Program" was supposed to be discontinued as a result of a 1977 Congressional hearing and report. However, there is overwhelming evidence that this project and its derivative continue on a wide, international scale at present. For web-sites on mind control programming, see:

Psychologist, Corydon Hammond Ph.D.’s Greenbaum speech at:

For CIA mind control and other projects, see: (Project Bluebird (Operation Paperclip) (MK-Ultra) (Is it a zero or letter O?)


On February 27, 1999, the Honorable Warren K. Urbom, Senior United States District Judge, Omaha, Nebraska, awarded a million dollar civil judgment in favor of Paul A. Bonacci against Larry King. Paragraph two of the Memorandum of Decision states:

"Two counts are alleged against the defendant Larry King in the complaint. Count V alleges were a conspiracy with public officials to deprive the plaintiff of his civil rights, designed to continue to subject the plaintiff to emotional abuse, and prevent him from informing authorities of criminal conduct. Count VIII charges battery, false imprisonment, infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and conspiracy to deprive the plaintiff of civil rights. Between December, 1980, and 1988, the complaint alleges the defendant King continually subjected the plaintiff to repeated sexual assaults, false imprisonments, infliction of extreme emotional distress, organized and directed satanic ritual, forced the plaintiff to "scavenge" for children to be a part of the defendant King’s sexual abuse and pornography ring, forced the plaintiff to engage in numerous sexual contacts with the defendant King and others and participate in deviate sexual games and masochistic orgies with other minor children."

The memorandum of decision continues:

"He [Bonacci] has suffered burns, broken fingers, beatings of the head and face, and other indignities by the wrongful actions by the defendant King. In addition to the misery of going through the experiences just related over a period of eight years, the plaintiff has suffered the lingering results to the present time. He is a victim of multiple personality disorder involving as many as fourteen distinct personalities aside from his primary personality. He has given up a desired military career and has received threats to his life. He suffers from sleeplessness, has bad dreams, has difficulty in holding a job, is fearful that others are following him, fears getting killed, has depressing flashbacks, and is verbally violent on occasion, all in connection with the multiple personality disorder, and caused by the wrongful activities of the defendant, King.

"For sixteen years since the abuse of the plaintiff began, I conclude that a fair compensation for damages he has suffered is $800,000. A punitive award also is justified but the amount has to be limited because of the small effect that such a judgment would have on the defendant King given his financial condition and his presence now in prison. I deem a punitive award of $200,000 to be adequate."

Noreen Gosch reports that Judge Warren K. Urbom did not believe the testimony of Paul Bonacci in the first proceeding after he was indicted on July 23, 1990 and charged with perjury, nor did he believe his testimony in the criminal trial in which he was sent to prison for touching the clothed leg of a boy. Then, February 7, 1999, Judge Urbom said he believed Bonacci, awarded him $1,000,000, and said he was wrong in his earlier judgments about him.

FBI Special Agent Ken Lanning of the Behavioral Science Unit, Quantico, Virginia, has claimed on numerous occasions there is no organized satanic movement in this country, only dabblers. This is the official position of the FBI.

THE "FINDERS" CASE: MORE CHILD ABDUCTION AND SATANIC ABUSE--The Franklin case and Finder’s case both include substantiated child abduction, child sexual abuse, and satanic ritual abuse. Both cases raise serious questions of cover-up by United States Federal and State Government agencies.

On February 7, 1987, Special Agent Walter Kreitlow, United States Customs Service filed a Report of Investigation on the Finders case. According to this report, the U.S. Customs Service was contacted on February 5, 1987 by the Tallahassee, Florida, Police Department who advised the Customs service that two white males, Michael Houlihan, and Douglas Ammerman, both of Washington. D.C., were arrested in Florida the previous day on charges of multiple counts of child abuse.

Houlihan and Ammerman were arrested in the company of six children ranging in age from 2 to 7 years old. The children were "covered with insect bites, were very dirty, most of the children were not wearing underwear, and all the children had not bathed in many days." A memo to the file in this report by Special Agent, Ramon J. Martinez, United States Customs Service, indicated that the children stated they were enroute to Mexico to attend a school for "smart kids". They were unaware of the function or purpose of telephones, television, and toilets. The children further advised they were not allowed to live indoors. They were given food only as a reward.

The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department was also contacted by the Tallahassee Police Department, because the van, which the adults were driving, traced back to an organization in Washington, D.C. known as "The Finders". Search warrants were obtained by the Washington Metropolitan Police Department for two locations of the Finders: 1307 Fourth St. N.E., and 3918/3920 W St. N.W., Washington, D.C.

Information was developed by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department that sex orgies and "blood rituals" had taken place at these two locations. They also suspected an unsolved murder took place at one of the two locations. A large collection of photographs of nudes, believed to be members of the Finders, was obtained during this search.

An album contained a series of photographs of adults and children dressed in white sheets participating in a blood ritual. The ritual centered around the execution of at least two goats. The photos portrayed the execution, disembowelment, skinning, and dismemberment of the goats at the hands of the children. This included removal of the testes of the male goat, the discovery of a female goat womb and the baby goats inside the womb with the presentation of a goat’s head to one of the children. Further inspection by the U.S. Customs agents of the premises disclosed numerous files relating to activities of the organization in different parts of the world including Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Africa, Costa Rica, London, Germany, and other parts of Europe. There was also a file identified as "Palestinian". One file was identified "Pentagon Break-in".

Telex messages were found, including one specifically ordering the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be arranged through a contact with a Chinese Embassy there, and one expressing an interest in "bank secrecy" situations.

Other discovered documents identified a keen interest in terrorism, explosives, and the evasion of law enforcement.

There was also a set of instructions which appeared to be broadcast via a computer network which advised participants to move "the children" and keep them moving through different jurisdictions and instructions on how to avoid police attention. These instructions were issued the day Houlihan and Ammerman were arrested by the Tallahassee police. There were intelligence files on private families, not relatives of members of the Finders. The Finders appeared to have undertaken a systematic response to local newspaper advertisements for baby-sitters, tutors, etc. A member of the Finders would respond and gather as much information as possible about the habits, occupation, etc. of the family. The use of this information was unknown. There was also a large amount of data collected on various childcare organizations. There appeared to be training areas for children and what appeared to be an alter set up in a residential area of the warehouse. Many jars of urine and feces were located in this area.

The news media was alerted to the raid.

"FINDERS" CASE DEFINED AS CIA INTERNAL MATTER: INVESTIGATION CLOSED--The United States Customs Service Special Agent Ramon J. Martinez appeared at the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department on April 2, 1987, for a briefing. Mr. Martinez states in his Report of Investigation:

"I was advised that all the passport data [found in the van in Tallahassee, Florida] had been turned over to the State Department for their investigation. The State Department in turn, advised the MPD [Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department] that all travel and use of the passports by the holders of the passports was within the law and no action would be taken. This included travel to Moscow, North Korea, and North Vietnam from the late 1950s to mid 1970s."

However, it should be noted that normal travel to those countries was illegal at that time. The final page of the U.S. Customs Service Report of Investigation states the following:

"The individual further advised me of circumstances which indicated that the investigation into the activity of the FINDERS had become a CIA internal matter. The MPD report has been classified secret and was not available for review. I was advised that the FBI had withdrawn from the investigation several weeks prior and that the FBI Foreign Counter Intelligence Division had directed MPD not to advise the FBI Washington Field [Investigation] Office [of the FBI] of anything that had transpired.

"No further information will be available. No further action will be taken."

RUSTY NELSON ARRESTED IN OREGON WITH THOUSANDS OF PHOTOGRAPHS--In 1998, John De Camp received a call from a detective on the Oregon State Patrol who advised him that they had arrested Rusty Nelson. In his possession, they found tens of thousands of pictures of children and other items which the detective described as pornographic.

Through a series of events, De Camp arranged for Nelson to be placed on parole in Oregon. Rusty Nelson has been on parole from Oregon and working in Nebraska since February 7, 1999 when he testified in Nebraska on behalf of Paul Bonacci in his civil suit against Larry King.

The pictures taken by Rusty Nelson and obtained from authorities in Oregon were presented as evidence in the civil suit. The courts ruled that De Camp could view them, but not make notes and placed a gag order on him. He could never, and has never, revealed their contents. John De Camp informed Ted Gunderson (this writer) that a Local Omaha, Nebraska County judge stated that the pictures could not be made public as it would "destroy the reputations of respectable citizens in the community". After the viewing by De Camp, these pictures were destroyed by order of the court.

RUSTY NELSON ARRESTED FOR ALLEGED PAROLE VIOLATION--In May, 2000, Rusty Nelson was taken into custody for a "parole violation" with no explanation as to the nature of the violation. This occurred very shortly before John De Camp, attorney for Rusty Nelson, and his family were scheduled to visit relatives abroad for the first time in about 20 years. This deprived Rusty of his main advocate and left him with a public defender, Barbara Kirkman, who advised him not to contest the alleged parole violation.

At the hearing on June 21, 2000, neither the prosecutor nor public defender was aware of the nature of the parole violation and the judge did not furnish details of the parole violation.

On June 27, Ted Gunderson (this writer) called the Paul Accardi, Chief Parole Officer, State of Nebraska, who told me that Nelson was arrested as a parole violator for refusal to attend a treatment program.

However, it appears that Rusty Nelson made a concerted effort to obtain treatment in compliance with his conditions of parole.

Pam Purdie, girlfriend of Rusty Nelson, advised Gunderson (this writer) on June 27, 2000, that she and Rusty Nelson made numerous attempts to determine the date, time, and location for treatment programs. Purdie stated that she and Rusty Nelson both contacted Parole Officer Ken Drahota and Hearing Officer Kathy Hohnstein to ask for referrals or assistance in finding Rusty a treatment program. Purdie stated that both Drahota and Hohnstein told them in reply, "That’s not my problem, Rusty’s an adult, he knows what he has to do". In addition to these inquiries, Purdie contacted Rusty Nelson’s Public Defender Barbara Kirkman. Kirkman in turn contacted numerous lawyers in town in attempts to locate the proper treatment program. The answer from each of these individuals was, "We don’t know". Purdie even took Rusty to Lutheran Family Services in Bellview, Nebraska and they were advised that Lutheran Family Services did not have the type of program necessary for Nelson.

John De Camp’s office manager advised me on June 28, 2000 that their office has not received any legal documents from state agencies or the courts who are involved in the Rusty Nelson extradition proceedings. She also advised that Mr. De Camp, who is out of the country, told her two weeks go, that he had driven to Columbus, Nebraska, to represent Rusty Nelson in a court proceeding and the judge would not allow him in the courtroom. The office manager did not know the name of the judge.

EXTRADITION HEARING FOR RUSTY NELSON--On June 19, 2000, an extradition hearing was heard at Columbus, Nebraska. Rusty Nelson was charged with a parole violation. Neither the prosecuting attorney nor the public defender were informed of details of the violation. Rusty Nelson was not present at the hearing. John De Camp advised Ted Gunderson (this writer) on June 19, 2000, that the hearing was initially scheduled for July 6, 2000, but it was moved up to June 19 without notifying Rusty Nelson’s attorney, John De Camp, in time for him to attend.

The outcome of the hearing was that Judge Frank Skorupa, Platte County Court in Nebraska, ordered Nelson returned to Oregon. As of today, he is in Douglas County Public jail in Nebraska and will be extradited to Oregon on July 2 or 3, 2000.

It is the opinion of Ted Gunderson (this writer), who has 49 years experience in law enforcement and counter-intelligence activities, that the scenario of returning Rusty Nelson to Oregon was orchestrated to gain control of him for unknown purposes. As John De Camp states in his letter to the Nebraska Governor Johanns dated June 5, 2000, Rusty Nelson "will end up dead". Nelson has knowledge of and control of extensive evidence that would be incriminating to too many people at the very highest level of the government.

Rusty Nelson’s risk of harm is greater in Oregon, 1500 miles away from the watchful eyes of his attorney, his girlfriend, his relatives and friends in Nebraska. I am not aware of Rusty Nelson having any advocates, family, or friends in Oregon.

Some of the techniques used by the CIA to eliminate witnesses include the use of a drug that is not traceable and induces heart attacks, medical "tests" that create diseases or rapid death, or officials will claim a suicide, murder by an other inmate, or other form of death disguising foul play.

A slang phrase often used in instances of death against victims who expose corruption in the Clinton administration is that they are said to have been "Arkansided".

JOHN DE CAMP LETTER TO GOVERNOR OF NEBRASKA--When De Camp learned that there would be an extradition hearing, he became very concerned for Rusty Nelson’s safety. He wrote a letter on June 5, 2000, to Governor Mike Johanns of Nebraska with a copy to Secretary of State Scott Moore, Nebraska; Attorney General Don Stenberg, Nebraska; and United States Attorney, John Monaghan, Omaha, Nebraska. The initial part of his letter provides background concerning the Franklin investigation, which has been summarized above in this report.

The following are excerpts from the letter:

"It is my belief, based on almost constant contact with Russell Nelson since he arrived in Nebraska, that he has complied as much as is humanly possible with the parole requirements that allowed him to stay in Nebraska and participate in providing additional information dating back to the beginning days of the Franklin matters. It is just as certainly and strongly and clearly my absolute belief and opinion, that for whatever reason, once Mr. Ken Drahota became assigned somehow to become Russell Nelson’s parole officer, that Mr. Drahota, for whatever reasons and under whatever incentives may or may not have occurred to cause him to do this, has been determined to create a violation of Russell Nelson’s parole so that Russell Nelson would be taken back to Oregon.

"Just as certain am I that once Russell Nelson goes back to Oregon, he will end up dead and unable to do anything further on Franklin matters as has happened to so many of the people involved in this case. [The books, the "Franklin Cover-Up" and "The Mystery of the Carefully Crafted Hoax" detail the numerous mysterious deaths that have occurred during the investigation of this case, see reference list at end of document.]

"I want to put this clearly, unambiguously, and absolutely in writing at this time to you officials so that when and if – more correctly when – it occurs, there will be in writing something that documents the pre-warnings on this.

"Yes, I know this sounds melodramatic. Some would say exaggerated and some might even claim out of the La-La land category.

"But before you make that judgment and take action that creates the conditions for what I am warning, you might actually take time to review the history of the Franklin case and what really did occur to a number of the witnesses there.

"And you might take time to read the transcript. It is interesting, for example, that the FBI and the Omaha Police who supposedly thoroughly investigated the relationship between Rusty Nelson and Larry King and found absolutely nothing there, are absolute and unequivocal and total liars on this matter. One had to be deaf, dumb, blind and totally dishonest and using their official position to cover up the relationship of Rusty Nelson and Larry King to have made those statements.

"Anyway, the final purpose and intent of this communication is to advise you that I am absolutely certain that Russell Nelson is the person that met with Gary Caradori just before Gary Caradori took off in his airplane and died. I am also certain that Rusty Nelson has those materials hidden and would take the proper federal or state law enforcement officials to the locations where those materials are hidden. Those materials he has, including originals of some of the things he gave Gary Caradori copies of, would answer questions about Franklin and some of the personalities and give answers which are contradictory to the official line put out by the grand jury, and of course the various investigative agencies involved.

"I would recommend that the federal U.S. Attorney consider giving witness protection to Rusty and actually utilizing his information and talents to provide the information that would verify some of the 'outrageous’ claims made by the children and others in the Franklin case.

"I will tell you all that I admit openly and frankly and I confess that I missed the real essence of Franklin. The essence of Franklin was laundered campaign money in the 1988 presidential election and I totally missed it.

"I was busy following the issues of baby screwing and young adults and drugs and abuse and misuse of official position. The real issue was campaign money laundering and Rusty Nelson can provide a lot more information on this.

"It may not be convenient at this particular time with baby Bush running for president for that issue to surface, but as stated, I am satisfied that is the real issue of Franklin that completely shot by me and others who thought they were looking into a matter of child pornography or child abuse or whatever.

"Having said these things, I again repeat and I hope you will look into this and not send this individual back for a summary execution, which is what will occur.

"You might call Dr. Brylski who deliberately kept Rusty Nelson for almost a year or more at the hospital in Oregon, not because he had any mental problems but strictly because she knew that he would be dead if she did not. It was only when she was satisfied that he was going to be able to be released immediately from jail upon his release from the mental institution and allowed to come here that she in fact certified that he was ready to go.

"As stated, this is a brief and very short summary of my concerns and some of the reasons for those concerns and my beliefs.

"I full well realize that you might think I am paranoid, delusional, and chasing fantasies as I recite some of these things.

"I once believed in the tooth fairy. I once believed in Santa Claus. I once believed that all entities and agencies of government are essentially pure and the public officials would not ever use their positions to really do horrible things or cover up horrible things.

"I no longer believe in the tooth fairy. I have doubts of Santa Claus. And I have seen and learned enough in my participation in the Franklin matters to know that my original beliefs about the purity of government were not totally on target.

RUSTY NELSON’S SWORN STATEMENT OF JUNE 22, 2000Realizing Rusty Nelson’s life was in danger upon returning to Oregon, Ted Gunderson (this writer), arranged for the following statement to be furnished by Nelson:

In Rusty Nelson’s "Legal Document" of 6-22-2000, he describes his numerous attempts on his life, including three times in which he was shot at. He writes:

"We have contacted the Governor, even the Attorney General, for help and witness protection, of which we were denied. I do not trust the FBI, or the marshals as they had their own people who were found guilty in their involvement with the Franklin ordeal. Not to mention my house was searched, ransacked, and utterly demolished after mentioning on the phone from jail in Portland where I hid some of the evidence in my home in Nebraska. When my family arrived, my home was in shambles. This was much of the same photos and copies of various records pertaining to Larry King’s sex ring and the huge amounts of money he stole from the depositors of Franklin Credit Union that I gave to Gary Caradori the day he and his son were murdered when their plane "mysteriously" broke apart on the flight back to Nebraska from Illinois just after I gave him copies of the evidence. Also quite mysteriously was was [sic] the fact that Gary’s plane crashed near the city where the former Chief of Police Wadman, who was run out of Omaha due to his involvement with Larry King, and Franklin. But more importantly whom I saw personally take a bribe of 1 ½ to 2 inch stack of $100. bills from Larry King on a side street in downtown Omaha. I was in Larry’s white Mercedes with them and secretly tape-recorded this transaction. Things like this really instill faith in the institutions of law, order, and justice for all.

"But on the grand scale was Mr. King’s close ties with the national Republican party. I always wondered who all he had to blackmail and pull strings with so he could make his dream come true of singing the National Anthem to open the 1988 National Republican Convention... That’s right, he did. Partly a great deal of this was due to some extremely large amounts of money diverted from Franklin to the campaign war chest and more so the special invite sex and drug parties at King’s home on Embassy Row in Washington, D.C. often after a normal party to serve as cover. It was shocking to see who would show up behind closed doors afterwards to fulfill their fantasies and desires. It went all the way to the top! Regan [Reagan], Bush, and yes, even hopeful Wannabe Baby Bush. The Secret Service would even go so far as to sweep and secure the house for them.

"Much of this I had not mentioned to anyone prior to this as Larry King often threatened my life and well-being should information such as this get out. I still fear greatly for my safety and well-being should information such as this get out. I still fear greatly for my safety and well-being whether he is in prison or not. I have seen what he is capable of and he has probably told me of various people I knew who he had murdered so well that they would be written off as suicides and such due to his connection and the "flowers" ($$$) he would send to various law enforcement officials. This was much the way that he would keep able to providing children, usually young boys, located by Sam Soda and gay prostitutes for his ‘friends’ as well as for various sadistic and cult rituals where they would torcher [torture] and brand them as they were being sexually abused , orally, anally, and however else they could possibly think of.

"An other dark villain was Colnel Akino [Colonel Michael Aquino] to whom King paid off with a suitcase of bearer bonds and cash earmarked for covert Contra operations. He also was big into sadistically inflicting pain, especially to the defenseless children.

"We also feel from the harassment and actions of Nebraska Senior Parole Officer Ken Drahota that he most likely has been corrupted by parties associated who wish to see that I am rendered financially and emotionally bankrupt and kept locked away where I cannot retrieve the evidence which still remains hidden that will prove without a doubt the identity and crimes of many of the parties involved in the many unjust and unspeakable acts committed by those surrounding Larry King. Mr. Drahota has also taken measures to make it extremely difficult for me to speak out freely at this time and has instigated my being detained in Columbus, Nebraska at the Public County jail so I can be extradited to Oregon on a Parole violation of which we are unable to find out what was the violation.

"I do have evidence still available. It would take great effort, personal risk and resources to even attempt my retrieving these items. I will gladly do so under the right conditions".

Rusty Nelson’s attaches to the "Legal Document" a notarized statement, also called Legal Statement", dated 6-22-2000, in which he writes:

"Of my own free will, I hereby voluntarily, under the penalty of perjury, and at EXTREME risk of life, liberty, well-being, and happiness, as well as having to endure relentless harassment to my family, friends, associates and ultimately myself, I have put this in writing to the best of my recollection as I believe it to be true from the events I photographed, private conversations, ledgers, documents, computer files, and various other such things those involved wish to keep secret and have gone to great lengths to keep them secret. These are things I witnessed personally before, during, and after my employment with Larry King and my association with those surrounding his most private and professional affairs. Much of which I secretly tape recorded, photographed or copied, then carefully hid in numerous places across the country should the need arise to retrieve such evidence. This document and other evidence is to provide further testimony and an avenue for justice to be served unto those who believe they are the untouchable elite that were associated with King in the event of my life or liberties be abruptly ended. As has all to commonly become the tragedy for numerous people innocently were victimized. Like myself or were associates, intimately or otherwise with the bizarre dealings, criminal activities, unspeakable sexual exploits and loss of countless lives due to Larry King and his associates many of which are extremely powerful in National and international politics, military, law enforcement, finance and business.

"Sincerely, Rusty Nelson"

This statement was notarized on 6-22-2000 by Ann L. Kildare


On June 27, 2000, Ted Gunderson (this writer) personally called the following law enforcement agencies to notify them of the current risk to Rusty Nelson’s life.

I personally called Platt County Sheriff John Sabidal and I informed Sheriff Sabidal that I had been actively involved in investigating the Franklin matter for the past 10 years and I wanted to alert him to the fact that I believe Rusty Nelson’s life is in danger.

I personally called Parole Officer Ken Drahota and left a message on his voice mail informing Mr. Drohota that I believe Rusty Nelson’s life is in danger, particularly if he goes back to Oregon and I wanted to alert him to that. I also left this message on June 26, 2000. On June 28, 2000, parole officer Drahota returned the call and confirmed receipt of my message of June 26 and 27, 2000.

I also asked Rusty Nelson’s girlfriend to ask Rusty Nelson furnish a statement of his wish to live and that he has no intentions of committing suicide.

STATEMENT OF JUNE 26, 2000, OF RUSSELL NELSON THAT HE IS NOT SUICIDAL--On June 26, 2000, Rusty Nelson notified authorities in writing on an "Inmate Request Form" as follows

This is to advise all local, county, states, and federal officials and all their employees and associates that due to my association as a witness to many of the events surrounding the Franklin Credit Union in Omaha that my life, limb, liberties, livelihood, ect. [etc] are in grave danger especially in the event I am extradited to Oregon. In the event on my denise [demise], please contact Ted Gunderson, FBI, for further details. Also be advised that I am not suicidal and the results are due to acts of foul play! You may also find other details in a book called "THE FRANKLIN COVER-UP". I will also need a notary Wednesday before the mail goes out. Respectfully submitted Russell E. Nelson

THE JUDICIARY--During the last 20 years, Ted Gunderson (this writer) has been contacted by hundreds of victims claiming corruption in the judiciary at all levels of our government. I have noticed a tendency by Criminal courts, Family courts, Civil courts, and Juvenile Dependency courts throughout the United States to base their findings on disbelief of testimony of satanic abuse, MK-Ultra Mind Control, and FBI, CIA, and government corruption. This writer has more than 2000 pages of documentation alone on the CIA Mind Control MK-Ultra Program.

Dangerous child abusers, such as was the case in the famous McMartin Preschool Manhattan Beach California trial, are regularly found innocent. (See Ted L. Gunderson’s extensive Scientific Tunnel Report on the McMartin case and/or "The Dark Tunnels of McMartin", by Ronald Summit, M.D. in the "The Journal of Psychohistory", Volume 21(4), Spring, 1994, pp. 397-416; see references below).

Children are regularly returned to parents involved in satanic abuse. Children are regularly removed from protective parents who allege satanic abuse based on the courts viewing these parents as delusional.

This is yet an other court decision in which accounts of satanic abuse and government corruption are dismissed, leaving silenced victims vulnerable to ongoing abuse. Is this the fault of the court? Is this the fault of the media that fails to address government corruption, satanic abuse, CIA experimentation and use of unwitting subjects with mind control?

For web-sites on mind control, see section on Michael Aquino.

For web-sites on satanic abuse, see:

CIA ASSASSINATION TEAMS--On April 21, 22, and 24, 2000, I obtained information from three sources that CIA assassination teams would assassinate up to 400 individuals during May and June, 2000, in central America and Mexico who have direct knowledge of the CIA drug operations in the past including the Iran Contra Drugs-for-Arms affair. My sources told me that during July and August, 2000, these CIA assassination teams would return to the United States and eliminate 100 Americans who are considered a threat to these drug operations and/or have been publically critical of the Bush/Clinton/CIA drug operations in the past. Among those on the list are Larry Nichols, past director of the Arkansas Development Finance Authority when Clinton was Governor; Larry Klayman, Judicial Watch, Washington, D.C.; Terry Reed, former CIA pilot and co-author of "Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA" with J. Cummings; Stewart Webb, whistle blower on Silverado Savings and Loan, H.U.D., and Denver Airport Fraud; and Ted L. Gunderson, former Chief of the FBI, Los Angeles. The 100 targeted individuals in the United States are described by CIA inside sources as "tenth-string noisemakers".

Ted Gunderson, this writer, furnished this information to Special Agent in Charge, Grant Ashley, FBI, Las Vegas, Nevada, by letter on May 1, 2000. Copies were sent to Metro Police Department of Las Vegas and the news media.

EXPOSURE OF SATANIC CULT/SEX/DRUG RING AND GOVERNMENT, FBI, AND CIA CORRUPTION LEADS TO A MURDER CONTRACT AGAINST TED L. GUNDERSON--Two confidential and reliable sources advised Ted Gunderson (this writer) in July, 1982, that there were two contracts on my life, one by the Israeli Mafia (on an unrelated matter) and the other by "the Satanic cult" out of Florida and Houston, Texas.

My landlady advised me that on the first Thursday in July of 1982, at 1:30 a.m., when she was parking her car, she noticed two men sitting in an automobile across the street from my front door. One of the men got out of the car, walked over to her and asked if she knew where Ted Gunderson lived. I had previously told her if anyone asks about me to tell them she didn’t know me. She told the man she didn’t know Ted Gunderson. She went into her apartment and watched from her window until 1:45 a.m. when she saw them leave. By divine intervention, I did not go home that night but was visiting a friend.

I successfully eliminated the Israeli ‘hit’ almost immediately through one of my confidential contacts.

It took me a year and a half to eliminate the satanic cult ‘hit.’ Because I had to go undercover, I was not able to work openly during this year and a half and lost my private investigation business.

A third attempt on my life occurred on May 19, 1987. By divine intervention, I stayed at my daughter’s home and did not return that evening to my business partner’s home, where I was living. My business partner was out of the country and his wife and 12-year-old son were home. The next morning, when I met my partner’s wife at work, she told me that at 11:00 p.m. that past evening, she heard an intruder come in the front door, on the first floor. She was on the third floor and locked herself in the bedroom. She went to the telephone extension located in the bedroom, but the phone was dead. She laid awake in bed terrified from 11:00 p.m. till 2:00 a.m. when the intruder left.

The next day, I contacted an informant who advised me that Bill Mentzer, known in the satanic cult/sex/drug network as Charles Manson, II, was the individual who was waiting for me to come home the previous night.

Once again I went underground. Subsequently through my efforts and the efforts of my contacts, Mentzer was tried and convicted of the murder of Roy Radin, a well-known Hollywood producer. Mentzer, along with three others, was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

In May 1993, while driving from Omaha, Nebraska to Lincoln, Nebraska, at 75 miles an hour, my right front wheel came off. I was in Nebraska working on the Franklin case. I called the Nebraska Highway Patrol. The Patrolman, Officer Lamb, told me the lug nuts on the right front wheel had been loosened which caused the accident. Fortunately, I was able to control the car. The repairman later told me that some of the lug-nuts on the left front wheel were also loosened, but apparently the intruder was interrupted while loosening the lug nuts as the others were intact.

HARASSMENT OF TED L. GUNDERSON--For the last 20 years there have been numerous stationery and moving surveillance’s of me. When I see a stationary surveillance, I strap on my gun and confront the individual or individuals. On two occasions, I chased the subjects out of the neighborhood. One ran a red light to get away from me. The individuals involved are probably contracted employees for the CIA, members, I suspect, of the "shadow government". They discontinued the stationary surveillances in 1993. Since then they have periodically entered my automobile, usually at night, and turned on the directional signal to let me know they have been in my car and are watching me.

On several occasions, they entered my condominium in Las Vegas at night while I was sleeping and took files from my cabinet. From May 3 to May 10, 2000 while I was in Philadelphia, my condominium was burglarized. There was no forced entry. The suspected CIA burglars took four of my storage boxes of documents which contained sensitive material and research. I have since been able to replace these. They also stole my FBI memorabilia, cherished items commemorating the days when I worked with my fellow agents on clean operations.

I have been photographed and videotaped on numerous occasions from automobiles and on one occasion on the golf course and on an other occasion, at a picnic in a public park. I suspect the individuals taking these pictures are CIA contract employees. I have also received numerous threatening and hang up phone calls. Their favorite phone calls involve the sound of a phonograph needle at the end of a record. I have also received numerous phone calls of individuals chanting on the line. I have recorded these calls. My mail has also been opened and I filed a formal complaint with the postal inspectors.

ATTEMPTS TO FRAME TED L. GUNDERSON FOR A CRIMINAL VIOLATION--Between March and August, 1983, the FBI and DEA attempted to frame Ted Gunderson (this writer) through a girl named Pam Fawsett, an FBI informant.

In August, 1983, Fawsett called me and said she wanted to meet with me. She told me of her assignment by the FBI, a plot which involved a series of recorded telephone conversations between her and me. She furnished a hand-written note by an agent which listed the questions she was to ask in one of the phone calls. The agent carelessly forget to retrieve the note. During the 6 months she was working with the FBI in an attempt to frame me, she was paid $2000 and had access to the FBI Modesto, California office. She even had her own coffee cup. She then furnished a series of three signed statements, and for documentation, the hand-written note the agent failed to retrieve.

When I asked Pam Fawsett why she came over to my side, she told me, "Ted, I woke up the other morning and realized you were the only honest son of a bitch I have talked to in 6 months".

The last time I talked to Pam, she said she was going into hiding because she was on a "hit" list. Pam was heavily involved in drugs and had numerous contacts in the drug community. Up to that time, I had worked a number of cases involving drug activity, among those was the Dr. Jeffrey R. MacDonald case. This case involved a major drug cover-up involving the transporting of drugs from Southeast Asia in military planes in plastic bags in the body cavities of dead G.I.s coming into the United States (Time magazine, January 1, 1973). It is very possible that this planned "hit" is due to her involvement in this case

WIRETAP ON GUNDERSON--In April 1985, I learned there was an illegal telephone tap on my office line at 1100 Glendon Avenue, Suite 1200, Los Angeles, CA. I filed a lawsuit and subsequently received an out of court settlement from GTE. I was placed in a position of taking the settlement rather than pursuing the lawsuit because I could not afford an attorney and could not locate one who would take the case on a contingency basis.

I learned that the tap was administered by a telephone answering service known as Answer All Answering Service, on W. Pico Boulevard, in Los Angeles. I visited the site and noted approximately 150 wires coming into the building that appeared to have been abruptly cut. The occupants apparently left in a hurry with their equipment.

Prior to filing the lawsuit with the phone company, I was tipped by a confidential source inside the phone company and was able to obtain photographs of automobiles parked in the area and people coming and going from that location. These photographs are in safekeeping.

TED GUNDERSON, CIA FILE--In July of 1999, a confidential source advised me, this writer, that my CIA file at Langley, Virginia is the thickest he has ever seen. Despite attempts by the "Shadow Government" to wipe out my documentation through burglaries, my file on CIA-FBI corruption is also the thickest one I have ever seen, except for the copies securely hidden in a number of places (recall Rusty Nelson), which are about the same size of the original, give or take a stolen box here and there.


* Is Rusty Nelson going to be eliminated to prevent the exposure of child abuse involving George Bush, Sr., and George Bush, Jr., and possible connections between the Franklin case and the Iran-Contra Drugs-for-Arms Operation, either of which if made public could impede the election of George Bush, Jr. as President of the United States?
* Was Shawn Boner’s death truly a suicide? Was he murdered to keep his brother Troy Boner from talking? If so, it worked. Boner recanted his statement after Shawn’s death.
* Was Alisha Owen’s brother’s death truly a suicide? Was he murdered to keep Owens from talking. If so, it didn’t work. Alisha refused to recant her testimony.
* Why did Gary Caradori’s plane explode in mid-air? Was it a bomb? Was the bomb attached to the rear seat? Was the seat not found to avoid chemical examination for a bomb?
* What happened to the pornography photographs confiscated at the scene by the FBI? Was the FBI at the crash site to control the recovery of the plane and evidence?
* There is questionable FBI jurisdiction? Did the FBI at the crash site grab the photographs from the deputy sheriff deputy to suppress evidence and perpetuate the cover-up? Did the FBI know in advance that the plane was going to explode, allowing them to be at the scene almost immediately, according to the sheriff?
* Was the death-by-car of the wife of the man from the sheriff’s department a satanic "hit", as appears to be the case with Kathleen Sorenson?
* Why did the FBI try to "kill" the "America’s Most Wanted" story on Johnny Gosch? Doesn’t the FBI have jurisdiction over kidnapping cases? Why didn’t the FBI cooperate with Noreen Gosch?
With so many similarities between the wide-scale Franklin and Finders cases, are they actually part of one national/international satanic cult/child kidnapping/child enslavement/sex abuse/drug ring?
* Who is representing the interests of the abused children in these cases? Where is the mainstream media attention? How many more Rusty Nelsons and Johnny Gosches are running for their lives as others of us sleep peacefully?
* Is a cleansing operation in place to eliminate witnesses having knowledge of the illegal Reagan/Bush/CIA drug/arms operation in Central America, Mexico, and the United States, again to ensure George Bush, Jr.’s election? Does this cleansing include Rusty Nelson?
* Since 1992, local and federal law enforcement officials have ignored Gunderson’s repeated requests for investigations of an international child kidnapping ring and corruption within the FBI, CIA, and other law enforcement agencies. Why aren’t these matters being investigated? Why isn’t the media exposing the above-describe evidence of corruption at the very highest levels of our government? Should any of us sleep peacefully?
