This Is My Rifle: Larry King & Jerry Sandusky’s Hidden World of Child AbusePosted by Jason James on 08/29/12 | Filed under Opinion, This Is My Rifle
** WRITER'S NOTE: Due to the horrific nature of the acts detailed in this article it is my responsibility as the writer to make some clarifications.
The accusations brought against Larry King in this article are serious and it's important to note that he was never convicted of partaking in or perpetuating sex crimes against children in a court of law. Although he was eventually found guilty of a long list of criminal activities, he has never been charged with any crimes in relation to the case described below. Furthermore, many mainstream news outlets reported this case as being a hoax; a scheme concocted by King's political rivals to destroy his reputation and ruin his credibility. I would also like to acknowledge that a majority of these sources were later discovered as having strong ties to both Larry King and the Republican Party.
Throughout this article I have made numerous references to John DeCamp's book, "The Franklin Cover-up- Child Abuse, Satanism & Murder In Nebraska". John DeCamp is a former Nebraskan State Senator and lead investigator of the Franklin case. His book is not only a recollection of his personal experiences investigating this case, but is also comprised of statements given by many alleged victims and witnesses. I have also cross-referenced DeCamp's book with a number of additional statements and interviews given by John DeCamp, former State Senator Loran Schmit, former FBI Chief Ted Gunderson, Investigator Gary Caradori, Paul Bonacci (victim), Alisha Owen (victim), Noreen Gosch (mother of Johnny Gosch) and Rusty Nelson (photographer for Larry King).
This article is by no means and indictment of Larry King or an attempt to spread false rumours in an effort to besmirch his character. It is merely my interpretation of a sequence of events that I believe to be true.**
Of all the topics I've covered in these articles during the past two years, there are few subjects I haven't been willing to discuss. Even if it meant that I would open myself up to an overwhelming amount of ridicule, and possibly lose a few readers/listeners along the way, I've always felt that it was my duty to share with all of you what I know to be the truth.
There is, however, one subject that I have purposely strayed away from- pedophilia.
Throughout my lifetime I have built many relationships with people who were victims of child abuse. Some of these relationships were short term and some of them were with people that I love and cherish to this day. Having witnessed first-hand the direct result of the physical, mental and sexual torment of a child, in my opinion there is nothing on this planet more disturbing and heart breaking than the idea of a child's innocence being forcefully ripped away by the hands of an adult. In every single case I've seen there has never been a positive outcome and as the child grows they develop serious mental health issues. In circumstances where the abuse was minimal, the person would suffer from a vast list of problems ranging from drug and alcohol addiction to manic depression and chronic sexual behavior. In extreme situations these people had developed Multiple Personality Disorder- a condition which occurs when a child suffers abuse so severe that their personality splits into alternate identities as a means of coping with the atrocities being inflicted upon them.
It's because I maintain friendships with people who deal with the consequences of their abuse on a daily basis that I have never written about it for fear of alienating them. They have faced a pain far greater than anything most of us could imagine and it's for that reason alone that I have not openly confronted this topic.
But a few weeks ago when news broke that the FBI were in possession of a sworn statement from an eyewitness claiming to have been present on a private jet while Jerry Sandusky and a wealthy Penn State booster sexually abused a child, I could see the first thread coming loose on a tangled ball of depravity which has been quietly growing for upwards of 30 years. Whether the mainstream media knows it or not, they have just made public a ring of people who have been involved in a network of pedophiles stretching across the United States for generations. An underground cult of perverts that includes police officers, movie directors, Wall Street executives and high level politicians.
To get a complete view of the bigger picture, we have to first travel back to the mid-late 1980's in Omaha, Nebraska where prominent Black Republican leader, and head of the Franklin Credit Union bank, Larry King (not the television host) was being investigated for ties to the Iran-Contra scandal. It was during this inquiry that rumors of his involvement in a massive child prostitution ring began to surface with a handful of victims coming forward willing to testify against King. As the story began to unfold, Nebraska State Senator John DeCamp launched his own investigation in an effort to disprove the allegations and save face for the Republican Party.
Almost immediately Senator DeCamp discovered that not only were the victim-witnesses stunningly accurate in regards to places and events that they would have no knowledge of unless they had been physically present, they were also corroborating evidence without having any contact with each other either before or after these events took place. One after another, children, who were now in their late teens or early 20's, were coming forward and describing sex parties where they had been repeatedly raped, tortured and brutalized. Almost every statement told stories of being flown on private planes to distant locations like New York and Washington, DC where they were sold for sex. Some had been bought outright, the property of a wealthy politician or businessman, and held captive as a slave. Others would work the circuit, allegedly brought to parties by Larry King and made to fulfill every twisted perversion the guests could conjure. And in every single instance these kids were forced to partake in satanic rituals.
Most of these children were either orphans or were removed from their parent's homes at an early age by Child Protective Services. They were then funneled into households that stood as fronts for the prostitution ring. In some cases there were 10-20 children adopted by a family that were not actually accounted for at the family's home. The "foster parents" would reportedly hand the children over to Larry King in return for a large sum of money and the children would disappear forever. If for whatever reason there were complications in offloading a child, they would push them through "Boy's Town" or the "Omaha Girl's Club"-non-profit centers for at risk youth- where Larry King was a contributor and board member.
Not all of King's alleged victims were orphans and runaways. Some came from broken homes and were coerced into the ring via threats and blackmail. These children were forced to commit violent crimes and made to believe that they would go to prison for life if they ever told their parents or authorities. With virtually nobody to turn to, they were pushed into sexual slavery against their will. Then there was the case of Johnny Gosch who was allegedly abducted from his home by King's people in 1982. His mother Noreen later learned that prior to his kidnapping Johnny's picture had been taken and added to a "catalog of prospects". Once he had been "selected" he was abducted and sold to a pedophile in another state.
The most notable witnesses to speak out were Alisha Owen and Paul Bonacci. While many of the children who came forward with accusations against King were either murdered or recanted their statements out of the fear of being killed, Paul Bonacci and Alisha Owen courageously fought back and testified in front of a grand jury. Below is an excerpt from Paul Bonacci's official statement:
(Warning: This statement is extremely graphic and hard to read. If at any point it becomes too much to handle, skip to the end quote and continue reading.)
"In or on July 26th I went to Sacramento, CA. King flew me out on a private plane from Eppley Airfield (in Omaha) to Denver where we picked up Nicholas, a boy who was about 12 or 13.Then we flew to Las Vegas to a desert strip and drove in to Las Vegas and to a ranch and got something. Then flew on to Sacramento.
We were picked up by a white limo and taken to a hotel. I don't remember the name of it. We meaning Nicholas and I were driven to an area that had big trees, it took about an hour to get there. There was a cage with a boy in it who was not wearing anything. Nicholas and I were given these Tarzan things to put around us and stuff.
They told me to fuck the boy and stuff. At first I said no and they held a gun to my balls and said do it or else lose them or something like that. I began doing it to the boy and stuff. And Nicholas had anal sex and stuff with him. We were told to fuck him and stuff and beat on him. We were told to put our dicks in his mouth and stuff and sit on the boy’s penis and stuff and they filmed it. We did this stuff to the boy for about 30 minutes or an hour when a man came in and kicked us and stuff in the balls and picked us up and threw us."
The statement gets a lot more intense from there but I will cut it short for the sake of saving you from reading something you won’t be able to shake for weeks. It’s also important to note that the reference to “big trees” has been confirmed by multiple witnesses as being the infamous Bohemian Grove.
Shortly after this statement was given, King was cleared of all suspicions in connection with the prostitution ring and both Alisha Owen and Paul Bonacci were subsequently charged with perjury and sentenced to lengthy prison terms. Throughout the investigation of Larry King’s involvement with child pornography and prostitution the local media, police, district attorney, FBI and the majority of Nebraskan politicians did little to nothing to investigate the matter.
In fact, in most circumstances they worked against the investigation; covering up evidence and silencing witnesses when and where they could. Of those who continued to investigate the ring, many were murdered or just flat out disappeared. Gary Caradori, lead investigator and avid pilot, was scheduled to arrive back in Omaha from Chicago when his plane exploded in mid-flight. His last known conversation was with Nebraska Senator Loran Schmit and he was quoted as saying, “We’ve got them! There’s no way they can get out of it now!”. Whatever hard evidence Gary Caradori had in his possession at the time had burned up along with him and his son A.J. when his plane came crashing down in Lee County, Illinois.
Larry King was eventually convicted of embezzling millions of dollars through his now defunct Franklin Credit Union and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He was released in 2001 after serving just 10 years and has since returned to politics. Only a small handful of people were ever found guilty of crimes in relation to the prostitution ring. Larry King was not one of them.
The reason why this story is important is because there are some unavoidable parallels in the Jerry Sandusky case. For example, much like Gary Caradori, Pennsylvania District Attorney Ray Gricar had been investigating Sandusky since 1998 and disappeared in 2005. It’s my belief that he never pursued criminal charges against Sandusky because he was on to something much bigger and was building his case. Gricar’s body has never been recovered but his laptop was found in a lake near his abandoned vehicle, badly damaged and missing its hard drive. He obviously knew something that needed to be kept secret.
Now with the news of an eyewitness who was present on a private jet while Sandusky and a Penn State booster sexually abused a child, I have a feeling that this circle of perverts is about to get blown wide open. I don’t know if it’s intentional, but somebody, somewhere in the mainstream media is working to expose the truth and from my own research I know that the public will be rocked to it's core when it’s revealed. Part of me believes it’s by accident and part of me believes there’s a greater good looking to shine down on humanity once and for all. Whatever it is, I’m just hoping it gets here before the powers that be can shut it down.
