"THE FINDERS"

"The Finders" is a CIA Front established in the 1960's. Members are specially trained Government Kidnappers with top clearance and protection in their assigned task of stealing children, torturing and sexual abusing them, sometimes involving them in satanic orgies, bloody rituals and murder of other children with the slaughter of animals. The Finders are known sexual degenerates who use a fleet of unmarked cars to grab targeted children from parks and schoolyards. Many times using their own child members as decoys, they lure the innocent children away from the crowd close to their vans. The adults inside grab the children, drug them and transport them to a series of safe houses where they await their ill fated end. They are then used in ceremonies.

Further, he was informed' by the Tallahass~e Police Department that the child~en may h~ve been encoute to Mexico from the Washington, D.C. area. The possibility of ·customs interest in the investigation due,to possible violations of the Child protection ~ct of 1984, and the alleged nexus ~i~h the u.s./Mexican aord~r were ~iscu$sed and ag(~ed upori. SS/A Rrietlow related the following ,background information.· SS/~.

Be requested that I conduct computer checks on che customs Child pornogr~phy unit'data base The checks were to be conducted on the names, addresses, and a vehicle provided by SS/A Rrietlow. A~ter conduc~ing the computer check~, I made direct contact with SS/K Krietlow to inform him that all' the checks were negative. At that'time I was informed by 5S/A Krietlow that the Tallahassee police had discovered large quantities of records, to include computer discs and a U.S. passport in the van. From some of theSe records the police had obtained tentative identification of the two adults, and partial identification of the children. Furthemore, the two Washington, D.C. addresses had'been discovere~ through these documents, one of which was verified t~rough thevehiel~ , reg i s t r a ti 0 n .

A short

time later, at approximately 11:30 a.m., S5/A Harrold contacted me by radio, and advised me that a Detective Jim Bra~ley of the washington~ D~C. Metropolitan Police Department (KPD) was. interested in ~he informatio~ provided by ss/i ' F:rietlo ....... in contact ,' ·as with Tallahassee, and .... uld o very probably be conducting search warrants in the area,later in the " day.

With the information p~ovided by the informant, Detective Bradley was able, to match some of the children in Tallahassee with names of children known alleged to be in the custody of ,the Finders. Furthermore~ Bradley .... as able to match the tentative ID of the adults with known 'members of the Finders. I st'ood' by while Bradley c o n s u Le e d 'with AOSA Barry Benner and obtained.search warrants for the two premises.

SILVERSTONE was located in a room eguipped with several computers, printers, ana numerous documents. cursory examination of the documents revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for'unspecified purposes. The instr.llctions included the impregnation of female members of the community k now n asP i n d e r S,P u r c has i n 9 chi 1 d t: en, t r a din 9 " and . kidnapping.

I also contacted SS/A Holloran to keep him adVised of the proceedings and asked for and received permission to contact SS/A John Sullivan of the CPPU to guery some names through the CPPO data base. SS/A Holloran told me he would call Southeast Region Beadquarters to keep them posted on the proceedings as well. I later contacted SS/A Sullivan for the stated purpose, and in the discussion that followed, I gave him some background en the purpose of the reques~. I advised him that the information was not for dissemination at Beadquarters, that Region was being notified,

I'

and that Region would probably contact Headquarters later if Jeemed necessary. SS/A Sullivan assured me that the information would go no further until officia\ notification was made by Region. No positive matches were obtained from the CPPC data base. I was later' joined at the W Striet addiess by SS/A' Rarrold_ SS/~ Earrold advised me that there were ~xtremely large quantities of ~ocuments and computer equipment at the warehouse, and that HPD was pbsting officers i'nside the building there and sealing the building until morning, in ~hich ~ second warrant for that premises would be obtained and executed. SS/A Earrolo also advised me that the neWS media' had been notified and had been waiting for the execution of the warrant at the 4th Street a d d r e s s . . Detective Bradley later' stated that the HPD public Information Officer had been contacted by a Tallahassee reporter.

I advised SS/A Eolloran of the involvement of the press, and he s~ated that he would, in turn, relay the inf6rmation to Region. SS/A Harrold and I assisted in the transport of the,evidence seized pursuant to the warrant· and cleared MPD after, the,pres~' left the area. On Friday, 2/6/87, 'I metnetective' Bradley at th'e warehouse'on" .,l t h street, N. E .' I a u 1 y advised. m ya c tin 9 9 r o_ u p supervisor, 55/')..Don Bludworth; I'was 'again granted'unlimited access to , t~e premises. I ~asable to observe numerous documents which described explicit sexual conduct between. the members of the community ~nown as finders. I also saw a large c6llection of photographs of unidentified persons. some of the photosraph~, were nudes, believed to be of members'of Pinders. There were numerous photos of children, some nude, at least one of which was a photo of a child 'on display· and, appearing to accent the child's genitals. 1 was only able to examine a ~ery small amount of the photos a~ this time. However, one of the , officers presented me with a photo album for my review.The album contained a series ·of phctos 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 the removal of the testes of a male goat, the discovery of a female goat's 'womb' and the, "baby goats· inside the womb, and the presentation of a goats head to one of the children. Further inspection of the premises discl~sed relating to activit,ies of the organization of the ~orld. Locations I observed are as G e rm a I\Y, the Bah amas, J a pan, I:l 0 n 9 K 0 n g, Mal Rica, and ·Europe."

DETAILS OF INVtSTIGATION:
On March 31, 1987, I contacted Detective James Bradley of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). i.was to meet with Detective. Bradley to review the documents.sefzed(. pursuant to two search warrants executed In·February·~987. )he meeting was to.take place on April 2 or 3. 1987.. . On April 2, 1987, I arrived at MPD.at approximately 9:.00 a.~. Detective Bradley was not available. I spoke to -a·:thirdparty who was'willing to discuss the'case \Jithme on a strictly '''offthe record'" basis. I was advised 'that all the passport data had been tuined over to the state Department for their in~estigation.

1 filed formal complaints on six occasions with the FBI demanding an investigation of the FINDERS and the international trafficking of children who have been kidnapped or obtained through subterfuge (orphanages; and on occasion the agency known as the Child Protective services) but the FBI refused to contact me. I have received two complaints from airline employees that airplanes containing several hundred children were flown to paris, France from Denver Colorado and Los Angeles, California. Two hundred and ten children were reportedly on the manifest of the Denver plane. In addition Paul Bonacci told me about children who were auctioned off in the early 1980's outside Las vegas, Nevada and Toronto, Canada. These children were auctioned off in their underwear with a number on a card around their necks, some for $50,000. each (see the Franklin Cover up Investigation). One hundred and ninety one children assigned to the Child protective services in Florida are missing with no indication of their whereabouts. One hundred thousand children disappear each year in America (Readers Digest, July 1982).

Nebra.ka nevi.ed stGtutes 28-711 impose specific duties, with criminal p.na.l1:yfor thelia who fail to follow the mandates of the law, upon all individuals having "reAsonable cau •• to believe that a child haa been subj~ct8d to abule or neglect •••• " I believe that under this law I have an obligation to provide infornetion I have raeeived from an individual named Paul Bonacci to the proper authorities for appropriate action. Further, Mr. aonaec~ himself hal. a. he ha. in the past when he fir,t provided information to public official., made it clear to Me that he a110 want. to comply ~ith all tor.ma of the child abUie law. of th. state'of Nebraska. The information haa com. to me as a relult of agreeing to act as attorney for Hr.

As I understand it f~om all of them, they have ~~ncluded that the ailment Mr. eonacci suffe~s ~s a direct consequence of v.r~ serious trauma caused by child abuse over a prolonged perl.od ot time. Another character~stic.the Court ordered psychiatrist Mead of Omaha and Le9~slat~vely ordered nationally reco9nizad psychiatriet Dr. Densen-Gerber h~ve "..

of. the •• hi9h1y competant p8ychiatrists mention.a have repeatadly exuined this young man and concluded that they believe his co~~lex tale of abuse is Q~sentially accurcte Gnd that .thi. ind~v~duall PAul Bonacci, is .ccurat.ly reporting what he .xper~enced, Both

01" THE STORIES

However, each of them have also r.peatedly emphasized the fact that BECAUSE or T~E MULTIPLE PERSONALITl FACTOR the true story ot abuse and individuals involved in the abuse CAN ONLY BE UNDeRSTOOD IF ONE PIECES TOGETHER OR CREATDS A COMPOSITE
TOLD B~ 'l'ME VARIOUS PER50NAL1TIES.

N.edl ••• to say! this was not dene at the time ot the Grand Jury inv.atig~tlon and the purpose of this letter i. NOT TO OEhL WITH Mft. BONACCI'S CnIHlNAL INDICTMENTS OR AN~ G~D

It is the purpose of this letter, howevert to now provide, as per the above cited Neb~a5ka law, intor~ation from Mr. Bonacei which ha. been obtained rel~tive to child abuse of the p•• t--invclvinq not only Mr. SonAcc1 but 4 hoat of othera--which information IS THE COMPOSI~E OF UIS STORY OF CHILD ABUSn AS PRESENTED BY THE VARIOUS PERSONALITIES. Thi. i. the first time this com~o.ite haa been available and is being provided ·to authorit~e. immediately upon transcription.

Mr. Bonacci has Igr.aQ that he wants to compl~ with Nebraska law and want. tllis information presented for .l.nvestigation nnd examination &. required by law. Further, he wants it made available 10 that the situation can be corrected so that
other. do not .xperienca wh~t he has been a victim of. For the prctectic~ of other individuals identified in the transcript. provided with th.i..latter, ! have t&ken the liberty of obliterating the nam•• of certain individual.

Franklin Credit Union

Dear Mr. Gunderson: The Attorney General's Office received and reviewed the latest material sent regarding the Franklin Credit Union investigation and the Alicia Owen's case. Thank you for sending the information. We note the updated information consisted of certain affidavits purportedly signed by jurors who served in the Alicia Owen's case. We note these issues were addressed by Judge Raymond J. Case, in response to a new trial motion filed by Alicia Owen's legal counsel. An order was entered by the court! a copy of which we enclose for your reference, although I suspect you are already aware of the doclli~ent. Perusal of the Judge's Order indicates the Motion for New Trial was overruled. At that stage, legal counsel for Alicia OWen had the option of pursuing the matter further by appealing the case, in which event the matter would be reviewed and reconsidered by either the Nebraska. Court of Appeals or the Nebraska Supreme Court. So the issues raised by the affidavits have already been addres sed by the trial court and could, depending upon timely filing of appeal, be further cons idered. Consequently, opportunity existed within the scope of the litigation to address the affidavits. please understand, Mr. Gundersonl that we are not unmindful of the problems of child abuse both sexual and physical and our people, as they work on cases, have been instructed to watch for any indication of cults or clandestine groups or organizations that traffic in children for sexual purposes.

• ••
the victim-witnesses may commitment to protect former Omaha FBI chief Nick O'Hara's friend Chief Wadman, or Assistant U.S. Attorney Thalken, or higher-ups in Washington. A look at life inside the Bureau, including its Omaha branch, shows why. In August [990, black FB[ agent Donald Rochon settled his suit against the FBI for racial discrimination. A highly decorated veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, Rochon joined the FB[ in the early I 980s. According to the settlement, Rochon, who worked in the Omaha FBI office in 1983 and 1984, will receive more than $1 million over his lifetime, and have his $500,000 in legal expenses paid. In his suit, Rochon charged Omaha FBI personnel with sexual perversion. Some of the details are recorded in a "Motion of the [U.S.) Attorney General for Summary Judgment as to Plaintiffs [Rochon) 'Chicago Claims,' " filed on September 13, 1989 in -Washington, D.C. After his Omaha assignment, Rochon had moved to Chicago, where the harassment continued, The FBI's eagerness to discredit

be based on more than just an

institutional

Agent] Dillon and.other SM assigned to the Omaha office. R~ alleged uw he hid "personally ooserved" Dillon "French kissing" SA Agent Terry J. Bohle, a male, at II going-away party for SA Bohle, and that be likewise had "personally witnessed" Dillon "exposing himself in the Omaha office during a regular wort. day to numerous Omaha employees, both male and female." In addition, Rochon said that he had heard feJXII1.'S that Dinan had allowed Bohle to urinate into his mooth and. to "urinate into II beer bottle, [from] which he subsequently drank:" and that Dillon had. been observed "picking out the deodorant block in [the] men's urinal and placing this block in his mouth." Rochon further alleged that Dillon appeared preoccupied with homosexual sex, kept homosexual pornography at his desk, and had frequently spoken in the: office of homosexual acts.
Specifically,

Subhead II of that motion, 'The Sexual Deviance Complaint and Investigation," reads in PaI\:
In response

statement

to his telephonic complaint, a signed sworn was taken from Rochon on July 3, 1984. In his

Another agent backed up' Rochon's account of Dillon's allowing Bohle to urinate into his mouth. In an official response, Dillon protested that SA Bohle only "accidentally" did urinate on him on one occasion. He added that he, Dillon. had not exposed his penis in the office, as Rochon charged, but merely his buttocks, The Bureau defended Dillon's possession of pornographic homosexual literature, as necessary' for his investigation of homosexual prostitution. But Rochon's claims of discrimination and harassment were so well substantiated, that the FBI chose to settle. In October 1983, the FBI announced it had investigated a male prostitution ring in Omaha. Apparently one of the agents on the case was none other than SA Dillon. U.S. Attorney Ron Lahners commented privately at the time, 'This thing is so big and involves 50 many prominent people around this state." The investigation was expected to bring high-level indictments, but never did. One Nebraska insider said recently. "There is no doubt that the pedophile networks investigated in 1983 lapped those of Larry King; in fact King himself was probably looked at at that time." Special agent Dillon, who was investigating homosexual prostitution in those years. was "real close to some priests at

over-

199

THE FRANKLIN

COVER·UJI

Boys Town," according to a law enforcement sOIJ!CC who knew Dillon then. Years later, Caradori received allegations that some priests associated with Boys Town, in particular Father Pat Henry and Father Fiala, were pedophiles; Father Henry was sent to Bolivia when child abuse scandals surfaced at Boys Town in the mid-1980s. Donald Rochon was a successful agent, part of whose responsibility while in Omaha was to find missing children. He once was commended for finding a kidnapped girl within one da y of be ginning work on the case. Inevitably, as a black agent, he would have developed ties in the black community in north Omaha, where Larry King's pedophilia was notorious. Many . of the boys King used as prostitutes were black, and were recruited from Boys Town, where the alleged pervert SA Dillon seemed to have friends. Would it have been just a matter of time until Rochon found himself investigating SA Dillon, and others in Dillon's clique? One thing was established for certain by Rochon's court documents: Dillon was the ringleader of the harassment operation which drove Rochon from Omaha, and most of the rest of the Omaha FBI office covered up for Dillon.

To Whom It Concerns: The trial 011 Februarv 5. 1999 resulted in a million dollar judgement. 1 believe that judgement, completely independent of the Default Judgement in the case because the singular issue was damages. makes it dear that the evidence pre sented was credible and Judge Urbom acted on that basis and to send a message to a number of individuals (both clean and dirty) who were a pan of the Franklin saga. I believe the U.S. Attornev has no choice but to either CHARGE THE WITNESSES WITH PERJURY HAVING TES~D lJl";DEFl OATH IN A FEDERAL COtJRT ON VERY MA TERlAL MA TIERS (From

Murder to Bribery

to Perjury' to the most vile corruption involving young people) OR, THE U.S. ATTORJ'..JEY HAS AN OBLIGATION TO ll'WESTIGATE FURTHER INTO THE F'RJ>J\'KUN SAGA p",~1) REOPEN M....I\·ITERS. This time mere ARE PICTURES. This time RUST'{ NELSON exists and

testified completely contrary to Chief Wadman's testimony under oath to the legislature. This tune Noreen
Gosch validated the credibilirv and storv of Paul Bonacci ... and a lot. lot more. A1 a minimum. some Federal or State authority (Whether it a Judge. Attorney General, Prosecutor, etc.) has an obligation to reopen particularly the Alisha Owen case. If my witnesses in Court on Februarv 5, 1999 are tellina the truth then Alisha Owen is al~. If Alisha Owen is YL~G, as a jury said, then my wnnesses are lving It appears to me to put the U.S. Attorney and Nebraska Anornev General and Judicial'S\'S'li:Iil on tile horns of a dilemma - and failure to act would: to me a~ appear t~ be deliberate obstruction of justice

l\IrEMOR..A.i'-l1)UM OF DECISION

On February 27, 1998, I found that default judgment should be entered against the defendant Lawrence E. King in favor of the plaintiff, Paul A. Bonacci. A trial on the issue of the damages due the plaintiff by that defendant was had on February 5, 1999.
Two counts are alleged. against the defendant King in the complaint. Count V alleges a conspiracy with public officers to deprive the plaintiff of his civil rights, designed to continue to subject the' plaintiff to emotional abuse and to prevent him from informing authorities of criminal c cnduct. C ount vm charges battery, false imprisonment, infliction of emotional distress, negligence and conspiracy to deprive the plaintiff of civil rights. Between December 1980 and 1988, the complain! alleges, the defendant King continually subjected the plaintiff to repeated s exuai assaults, false imprisonments, infliction of extreme emotional distress, organized and directed satanic rituals, forced the plaintiff to "scavenge" for children to be a pan of me defendant King's sexual abuse and pornography ring, forced the plaintiff to engage innumerous sexual contacts with the defendant King and others and participate in deviate sexual games and masochistic orgies with other minor children. The defendant King's default has made those allegations true as to him. The issue now is the relief to be granted monetarily. The now uncontradicted evidence is that the plaintiff has suffered much. He has suffered burns, broken. fingers, beatings of the head and face and other indignities by the wrongful actions of the defendant King. In addition to the misery of going through experiences just related over a period of eight years, the plaintiff has suffered the lingering

me

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 received threats on his life. He suffers from sleeplessness. has bad dreams, has difficulty in holding ajob, 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. Almost certair.ly the defendant King has little remaining financial resources, but a fair judgment to compensate the plaintiff is necessary. For the sixteen years since the abuse of the plaintiff began I conclude that a fair compensation for the damages he bas suffered is $800,000. ,\ punitive award also is justified, but the amount needs 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 S200,000 to be adequate. Dated February 1.9, 1999.
