Want to know what I got for my birthday?

May 20, 2017


Want to know what I  got for my birthday?

I couldn’t tell you before because up until now, it had to remain a secret. But now, since certain papers were signed and permissions were given …and since we know how our Columbus and beyond killers love to plant clues and play with puzzles and ciphers…here’s a few for them to wrap their little heads around!


When is a rose not a rose?


When it’s a grave marker?

Now, let’s try another!

When is a car not just a car?


When it’s used to abduct potential victims.

Now, let’s try an even better one!!

When is a photo not just a photo?


When it becomes a form of positive identification!! Happy New Year! (That’s a clue!)

Don’t you just love playing this game?

They have…since 1945, for one of them and up and through 2017 for another. Now here’s a bonus question. It won’t get you any points because technically–you’ve already lost. But here goes anyway.

Do you know what the world loves about sociopaths?


They are never as smart as their ego’s tell them they are! So, shall I send you a copy of the book and you can find out what else we know?*

It’s no problem, really.

We have your address!


Available on Amazon.com today, with updated information and evidence!

(*All case file information and evidence have been turned over to the appropriate authorities in advance of the publication of this book.)


I gotcha…a day in infamy!

May 1, 2017


The other day a feather!

Yesterday an angel song!

Today I turn 59…

I know!

How the hell did I get here so quickly and where will life take me from here?

Well, let’s see…

Before I look forward, let me take just a second to look back and thank both the universe and those I love and who love me, for all the support and joy they have brought to my world. Gratitude, my dear readers, is only half of everything…forgiveness is the other half! That being said, let me also thank all those people who treated me with less respect than deserved or were unkind in either word or thought against me…those of you who used or casually wrote me in or out of your life, according to what I could or could not provide for you…why? Because each of you contributed to the person I have become and for that, there can be no regrets. At 59, I am fearless and motivated…hungry for life and happy for its blessings…blessed with gifts I may not have tapped into if all of life had gone perfectly smooth or wonderfully uneventful.

No longer the naive young child or the chatty coquette, I am still number 7…still the dream trader…the seeker of the unknown and the matronly warrior who now follows both her gut and her dreams without doubt or delay. Could I have said this twenty years ago? Not really. I was who I was, but things were in the process of being revealed to me and while I prayed for greater insight and earth shattering changes…I never expected the lessons to come through the form of death.

The death of my parents brought me to places I could have never imagined and placed me on a divine path that has served my psyche well and now, serves others even better through my writing. Their death also brought me to other people’s deaths…victims.

Working on cold case murders and diving headlong into another’s  pain, helped me to more effectively cope with my own and I am grateful to both dead and alive for allowing this process to bring me adventures beyond my wildest imagination.

Want to know more about what this process has brought me?

Delays…delays…detours and more delays…

What can be taking so long in the deliberation about the appeal of Columbus Stocking Strangler, Carlton Gary?

Could it be finding the truth?

Now that Columbus has begun to read the book, Lords of the Harvest: A True Crime Investigative Memoir and they understand the corruption of those who originally investigated this case-things are happening! Take for instance; they now know of the association between the DA’s father and the true prime suspect of the dead 7 elderly women of 1977- ’78, as well as the potential 8th victim in 1980, Mary Sue Ogletree. They also know that the evidence was most likley tampered hidden on purpose…DNA potentially tampered with…justice denied…cover-ups manufactured and large scale connections to other cases veiled, to protect higher-ups and community leaders.

Let’s cut to the chase, Columbus…

They didn’t use forensics to secure that “miracle” fingerprint 8 yeras after these murders were committed– they used circumstance, opportunity and racial tensions. That’s right. No actual print on the evidence–just a print on a piece of cardboard, captured from a piece of tape. This print could have come from anywhere…at anytime, other than the time of the actual crime. What remains most crystal clear is that it didn’t come from the crime scene, at the time of the murder! But the footprints did…the infamous shoe molds too! And what of the bite mold and the bite marks left on the breasts of these victims?

How is it we can capture the bite or shoe evidence of those things the nights of the crimes and yet never have them tested? Why do we test an 8 year old print that nobody can confirm came from the actual crime scene–but we deny the evidence we know was taken at the scenes?

Hmmmm…so curious to me.

And, what about the original FBI profiles?

Remember? They said the killer was an angry, white homosexual male? What ever happened to that profile for that killer? How did we go from a middle -aged white male, who evidence provides worn a size 9-91/2 sized tennis shoe, crowded lower teeth and profilers’ and physological experts suggested suckled at his mother’s breast much longer than he should have, with homsexual tendencies and sociopathic over-kill methods… to a black man who wears a size 131/2-14 size tennis shoe, no crowded lower or upper teeth, who though, dealt with drugs and low elvel burglaries…actually got a spot on local TV commercials, because his smile was so bright and his teeth so straight?

Convenience and cover-ups, my dear readers!

So much easier to peg a black man for these crimes. Nobody ever wanted to think that a white man could have committed usch crimes against a elderly white women? Not there… not in the socially elevated and emotionally stunted jewel of mid- Georgia?

No… it had to be a black man! Even though everything and most of the witness statements and testimonies–most of those hidden from the jury, claimed it was a locally, well-known white man with a history of sudden and violent behavior, who knew these women–knew their homes and their weaknesses. Yes Columbus, your well groomed, loosey-goosey landscaper and his friend who likes to hide behind the walls of history, knows the truth  about those murders…at least one of them we believe, knows all the intimate details.

Maybe you could just ask them, huh? That might help move this thing along.

What’s that you say? These pillars of the community cannot be touched and the dark and mysterious, manicured landscaper is dead! Silly citizens…the landscaper is only dead, when it’s convenient for him to be! So, let’s get real folks.

Did you relly think that a nursing home in Florida was his final resting place…or a hollow box in Cordele, Georgia? A death that suddenly cropped up, just as they were about to announce the DNA results from these cases? Hmmm… the DNA that doesn’t even match the killer you have on Death Row?

Interesting timing…no?

What if,  just like his favorite mentor, H.H. Holmes did… he simply faked his death? What if he had help? Don’t believe me? Then why, when presented with an iconic drawing connected to another set of famous serial killings out west on the Californian coast..did his elderly friend fly into a frantic rage, pack a bag and catch a flight out to California to see this person, to let them know the that somebody else was on to them?

So, let’s get real folks. Did you relly think that a nursing home was his final resting place…or a hollow box in Cordele, Georgia? Like his favorite mentor, H.H. Holmes did… he simply faked his death, collected the cash and hit the road. Don’t believe me?

Really…just a small check of his travel agendas will confirm that. Want the year? The month? The day? Want his destination address? READ THE BOOK!!!!!

Your true killer is sitting very comfortably out west, my dears–laughing in his geriatric state at the silly shenanigans that continue to plague this case; enjoying the fact that nobody seems to care. Nobody, except his associate who cannot afford to leave Colunbus or die- ‘lest someone figure this all out and screw up the illustrious history they have created for themselves!

While your killer plays video games, his dear old friend keeps the surface of justice calm in Columbus, while the whiney landscaper complains about crappy service at his local Walmart, out there on the golden coast. Does the law know about this, you say?

You betcha they do…that and a whole lot more! Even the attorneys have been advised!

So where is this case at and why so many delays?

Who is moving in and who is moving out?

Who will catch a flight, as soon as they read this blog?

Who was involved with child trafficking…sexual parties…underground military MK-ULTRA programs and the debauchery of small town officials and their particular sexual perversions?

They wanted you to think this was a racial thing…a black man angry at his lot in life, goes crazy and kills a series of white women to get back at fate. They don’t want you to know that your streets were the playground for cultic activities, or for midnight hooded haunts amongst the Georgia pines. They don’t want you to know about the men who came to town to visit…your community pillars who played hide and seek with their freaky side out under the telephone wires in Harris County and tucked behind doors and curtains in the big yellow house… or the club downtown, which made them brave enough to share their stockings and their secrets and kill those who got in their way?

Read the book Columbus–educate yourselves! Your justice is not what you believed it to be. The 1970’s has a very interesting tale to tell and you should listen! History can and sometimes does repeat itself, but to be ready or to change it… you must be edified. Read the book and call out the freaks that carried your so-called justice and covered up the truths in your town. Call out the investigators that lied, the attorneys that covered the sins of their father, in order to cover the tracks of the truly guilty and what the reality of their crimes was all about.

“Do what though wilt!”

Hide or manipulate the evidence- whatever it takes to protect those involved! What was that?  Where is all the evidence they say they gathered? Why hasn’t it been tested…given to the right people? Why such a rush to bury this all again, and again, and again? How many graves must there be, before you demand the truth? Do not the corpses of these women deserve the right to tell their story?

Who professed: ‘As above, so below?’

What was the white rabbit, the pearl and the organe about?

What was red? What was green? And why were they so important to these two men from Columbus and their cozy cohorts from California?

Remember what they say…for every Goliath, there is a stone!

Be that stone, Columbus! Learn the truth about these two men and tell the world!

The landscaper lives and if nothing else, he committed insurance fraud…but prick his finger, check his DNA and you might find your search for the real Columbus killer is over!

And what about the others? The victims in Boston, California, Denver, Atlanta and Michigan? What about Florida and Texas?

So, how many died at this cabal’s hands?

Go to Amazon.com now and read what the book has to share…protect yourself from the lies they have told you for over a generation and keep the men who first lied about the truth from sitting in high places again, to pass false judgment upon cases connected to the killers. This is how they deceive you…one case, one lie, one falsehood heaped upon the other…all while they stacked the justice deck and distracted you with their pompous righteousness and race baiting platitudes.

If their case is so airtight…why did and do they refuse to test the bite mold…or the shoe mold…or tell the truth about the DNA samples…or rationaly explain how DNA from a Columbus victim got in the pocket lining of a jacket of a military coat that found in Atlanta years later on a BB gun handle in another case? A jacket that belonged to the killer?

And what about the contents of the suspect’s home? Why were some things kept and some quickly bought at the estate sale at the crack of dawn by this man’s attorney? What were they trying to hide or prevent from being seen?

Ask these questions…Columbus!

Ask why the DA never recused themselves, when the original prime suspect had been in business with their father? Why was this man mysteriously pulled from the list of suspects, when the list was targeting white men and not black? Who crossed his name off the list…when and why? How did they justify this, when every other witness statement gives his name and his description? This is noted in the files found again last January, 2017!


What other cases were scooped up by the little attorney, that could have worked on more contemporary cases to build her career? Why was such focus placed on cases from the distant past?

I’ll tell you why! Because that’s where the truth and the connections exist.

Ask them about the scarf of Kathleen Woodruff…the scheduled meeting with the killer by Florence Schleible or the reason for the staging of Mary Sue’s case… or even the phenominally awkward assumptions made about the evidence in the Curry family case? Who had a grudge against them all and who was seen leaving the Curry house, covered in blood? Not the husband…

Who owned the red sports car seen in the area, that the Sheriff disregarded? A red car seen in other settings?

What 6’3″ black man could have casually wandered the streets of your town in broad daylight with a tennis racket, twirling it in his hand in the 1970’s in the white neighborhood of Wynnton and not been picked up immediately? Be honest, Columbus…then get down to business! Why don’t we ask about the marks on the victim Schleible’s face and across her back… or bruising and breaking of their collective sternums, or even the fact that the tunnels under their homes may have been used at night for people and things other than rain, rats or sewer water?

Wake-up Columbus!

Why didn’t your law enforcement share these important facts with you? Why couldn’t you be trusted with the evidence? You don’t suppose it’s because you could have figured these things out for yourselves… do you? Because fear clouded your reason and race was used to bait your sympathies. Want the truth? Stop gossiping about all the falsehoods and the victims’ families. Question the words and the excuses they shared and do your homework! Follow the facts, not the facades.

Follow the guilt…follow the money and follow the clues.

Who populates these hearings in the gallery? Why are they still so afraid new conclusions might be made from their carefully crafted narratives? Prove their theories can be true or look for another answer to the obvious questions!

The truth, my dear readers will set you free…and maybe even those in prison too, who while not perfect by any stretch and perhaps guilty of committing other crimes– were still not the ones who killed your neighbors.

They know their time has run out…the truth is right around the corner!

Stay tuned…

LORDS OF THE HARVEST…So what about Columbus? Have you ‘red’ it yet?

March 14, 2017


The book has now been out for a small amount of time and doing well…

So what about Columbus? Have you ‘red’ it yet?

Do you know who the real players are now?

Can you see the lies that were told…in the streets… on the witness stands…in the backrooms and halls of justice? Who was being protected and who was doing the protecting?

Carlton Gary still sits in prison for the Columbus Stocking Stranglings…but for how much longer?

Once the word gets out that the killer who took the lives of your elderly women, still lives on the West coast under another name, comfy and cozy in his little abode–shit may finally hit the fan!

And how about Wayne Williams? He still sits in prison for murders he was convicted of–but was he really the killer of Jimmy Raye Payne and Nathanial Cater? And what of all the child murders he was “credited with”? How honest do you think your city officials were about that? Why did they drop the ball…when did they stop counting…who made the list and who did they conveniently leave off the list, because it would have led the real cops to the bad ones.

Now, I don’t want to ruin the book for you, but all these things are connected.

The Zodiac kills…

The Boston Stranglings…

The Sonoma Stocking Stranglings…

The Black Dahlia…

The West Memphis Three…

The Chicago Lipstick Murders…

Murders in Denver, Maine, Michigan, Texas, Florida, Georgia, California…nationwide!

You have no idea the connections between all these cases or the patterned behaviors and physical evidence that supports such a supposition. Even the Jon Benet Ramsey case has an interesting connection to our casework.

Who lived in Marietta?

Why were they so drawn to that area?

What is MK ULTRA?

Who all was involved?

Why does he post the things he does…why doesn’t the other take down his wall of plates? Who  has the problem with the freaking oranges?

Maybe we should send them a copy of the book!

*All information has been turned over to appropriate law enforcement and other agencies involved with the original cases.

Chicago Cops–read the book!

Boston Cops- read the book!

California Cops–read the book!

Atlanta Cops–read the book!

Denver Cops– read the book!

Florida Cops–read the book!

Florida Keys Cops– read the book!

There are serial killings that span 1945 through the 2000’s that are all connected to the killers who have yet to be named until now. But this is time for justice, real justice…especially for the victims.

All the attorneys should take the weekend- buy the book read the book…take notes!

Author Robert Graysmith, webmaster Tom Voight…there is information for you there to complete your profiles on the Zodiac kills. Chet Dettlinger – may he rest in peace; he, Jeff Prugh and Mike Edwards were so close…so very close! You almost had the answers to the mystery of the Atlanta Missing and Murdered Children and Redwine Lake.

The FBI needs to read the formal reports submitted in 2015 and 2016 again…act on them!

It’s here…in this book. All the answers for Carlton Gary, Wayne Williams and Michael Finn are tucked deep inside.  So many victims, so many clues overlooked. Was this by accident or by measure?

Interested in the truth about these infamous serial killings?

This time…truth s stranger than fiction!

“fools…poets and lunatics”

You can run, but you can’t hide! I’ve found you!

Movement on the Columbus Stocking Strangle Case…

February 12, 2017

Movement on the Columbus Stocking Strangle Case…

The time has come to share some things.

The book is now out and has begun to make its secrets known. Already several key players in these cases  are beginning to take note of the findings in the book and the information they will need to move justice forward for their clients. Be respectful of those who have done so much to bring this information to you.

None of the people in this project; “Lords of the Harvest: A True Crime Investigative Memoir”, have ever been paid for their services…they have done this from their hearts. Five women bring you these truths, because to let these victims remain lost in history’s files was not acceptable. Five women who spent their nights and days doing research–asking questions, digging through files, searching maps and motives for clues. All for free…all for the victims.

 In Columbus?

Because of the book, those in power  now know that the true predator of these seven elderly women that were murdered –the man whom the police refused to process as a Person Of Interest when it mattered, still lives…still walks the streets of a place attorneys and law enforcement were told about in 2015 and 2016.

Where is this, you ask?

Buy the book!

The FBI was informed of this information, as far back as 2015 and again in another formal report given in 2016. His name…his address…where he shops… where he buys his dog food, etc.

In Atlanta?

 They are taking another look at the man who they convicted for the crimes of Cater and Payne. Did they make a mistake? And what of the many Missing and Murdered Children? Who really took their lives and why?

It is stranger than you think and the players in this case will shock and amaze you.

Again, all information was shared with those who needed to know in those same formal reports.

In the days and weeks ahead, you will come to know everything about these cases…who was involved…who killed who… who covered things up and who has done everything to keep these truths from you. But do not get sidetracked by your location or your bias. There are over 93-100 cases involved in this national tragedy.

And what of California? The Zodiac kills, the Sonoma Stocking Stranglings, The Hillside Stranglings, The Black Dahlia…

And what of Florida?

Or Maine… or Colorado…or Texas…or Chicago… or Michigan?

And what of Boston?

Who really strangled all those women? Murdered those children? Tortured those men?

 Discover everything…reveal the secrets…understand the mystery…regret nothing…pursue the truth!

The first review…

February 3, 2017



February 3, 2017…the anniversary date of someone’s death.

For those of  you who have read the book, you will understand! For those of you who have not? Remember this date!

Nonetheless; it’s an interesting day, because today I got my first review and how fitting that it came in the beginning of the Black History Month?


by T A Powell

Now available in both paperback and Kindle on Amazon.com


Benjamin Capone…

Today in Black History we highlight the Atlanta Child Murders: According the FBI, black boys and girls were murdered and mutilated over a period of three years, longer if you ask the locals. Atlanta witnessed child after child being kidnapped and murdered. I personal knew four children. Wayne Williams, a young local talent producer\employee of Ted Turner was blamed but never charged with the murders. My neighborhood was targeted by the murderers and J.W. Dobbs Elementary School lost several children.

The children’s’ bodies were mostly found in South Fulton County, now home to the black elite. The homes are now priced at $500,000 and up. I was chased, as well as several people from my neighborhood and neither of us identified Wayne as the person chasing us. The children slowly faded into obscurity.

Please say a prayer for the forgotten and teach your children about this dark history of Atlanta.

I strongly recommend you read Lords of the Harvest: A True Crime Investigative Memoir by T. A. Powell.

Special shout out to Ginny Bulloch for staying on the case. I really appreciate her body of work in the Atlanta child murder case.

Wayne is in good spirit and he is happy with the new book. He still has the same joyous voice.

History shouldn’t be a mystery.



Thanks to all who helped me research the information for this book.

For the victims…


Keep ordering the book…

January 23, 2017


The book, “LORDS OF THE HARVEST: A TRUE CRIME INVESTIGATIVE MEMOIR” is currently being restocked through Amazon.com, so…keep ordering, reading and pushing for justice in the cases this book has had the courage to highlight. Together, we will make the world aware of the additional evidence, now available to other investigators and attorneys, whose challenge has been to bring new evidence to light. Especially in the Columbus Stocking Strangler and Atlanta Missing and Murdered Children cases.

Please note: Findings included in the book were freely offered and turned over to all appropriate law enforcement agencies and concerned parties, well in advance of the publication of this book. Neither the author, nor the contributors to this project received any monetary compensation for their efforts. All publication and legal costs were absorbed by the author.




available in Kindle format on January 26, 2017 through Amazon.com

The journey has begun…

January 19, 2017


The journey has begun…

The book, “LORDS OF THE HARVEST”, was released through Amazon.com on 1/13/17…Friday the 13th, an extremely significant date for the killers. Why? Because even if you add the date itself (1+1+3+1+7), it too equates to the cultist number 13. Both the symbolic number of 13 and the full moon which heralded its arrival, is almost all you need to know about why these legendary murders were committed.

Think Columbus was the only place their fingers traveled? Guess again!

“LORDS OF THE HARVEST” is not a small book. It’s mass and content reflect to you the diligent research and dedication of those committed to truth and justice and the countless lives that have been altered because of the actions of a small few. Written in real-time, progressive revelation… you will understand what the investigator understands, as clues are revealed to her.

Folks in Columbus will be shocked…those in Atlanta will be both intrigued and appalled at a justice system that truly let them down when it was most needed. For those in the states of California, Tennessee, Boston, Illinois, Michigan, Colorado, Florida and points beyond, many will come to grasp that so many of their cold case files no longer need be hopelessly relegated to the dusty file cabinets of a hundred small town precincts.

As a spiritually driven, forensics investigative author, my process–albeit somewhat unorthodox– simply augments the more traditional investigative tactics used by most career criminologists. Regardless of your opinions about  this process–it remains uniquely effective. And, as a responsible investigative author–all information garnered and deemed worthy was properly surrendered to appropriate law enforcement agencies and court officials, prior to its publication. For those who worked quietly behind the scenes and kept their confidence, either through independent valor or contract… I thank you for your faith and trust.

It has been an interesting journey to say the least. Those who were chosen to take this path with me should be honored for their commitment and self sacrifice; those who may come one day to reap its judicious benefits should remember to give thanks; first to Source from whom all goodness flows and then to those who selflessly tilled the soils of doubt and deceit, until they produced the inevitable truth.

Read  the newest tome in my True Crime Investigative series, “LORDS OF THE HARVEST”  and find out how those who have already passed, helped me to discover the key that binds them all; a key that now becomes evident throughout hundreds of cases, dating all the way back to 1945.

“LORDS OF THE HARVEST” in Kindle format will be released through Amazon.com, on January 26th, 2017.

Be it paperback or digital, you will not want to miss this epic adventure in breaking down the true facts of the Columbus Stocking Strangler murders and how the findings in that case, can be extrapolated and extended to several other serial killings, not only in the state of Georgia…but well beyond its borders.

And remember: Dead men tell no tales…but live one’s do, Columbus!

Stay tuned…

Lords of the Harvest…it’s here!

Dear Reader,

While it is not my intention to begin this book with a riddle for levity’s sake, it is my intention to ask you to use your intellect from page one. You see, some murders are prompted by basic emotions that render a killer’s motivation most obvious. Other murders are committed out of a need to serve a higher purpose, such as personal or ideological loyalty, and/or religious martyrdom. But the Columbus Stocking Strangler murders will never rise to the elegance of such, no matter how much the perpetrators of these atrocities might insist. These graphic slayings of seven elderly white women were executed for a series of reasons that for over almost four decades have gone undecipherable and in the end, were simply part of a much larger puzzle that until now has remained hidden. So let us continue with the riddle…

What is another word for Thesaurus? Thought provoking, isn’t it?

For how do you describe something that in essence exists only to describe everything else, but not itself? I think you would agree with me then, that sometimes there simply isn’t a better word or group of words to describe a thing other than the words that originally describes it the best. Thus, you have the reason why the title for this book could be nothing other than: LORDS OF THE HARVEST: A TRUE CRIME INVESTIGATIVE MEMOIR.

This investigative memoir begins with my introduction to the murders in Columbus, Georgia in 1977, where the word harvest took on another meaning and the tools that were used to harvest these ‘matured’ victims will not only shock you—but lead you to other horrors, once shrouded in mystery and considered as stand-alone or disconnected serial murders… until my discovery of the key that unlocks them all.

The Chicago Lipstick Murders

The Black Dahlia

The Boston Stranglings

The Zodiac Murders

The Sonoma Stranglings

Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered Children

The Orange County Michigan Murders and many more…
