FBI Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo: “The Ideal Profession For a Serial Killer May Well be a Long-Haul Truck Driver Like I-4 Serial Killer.”

Monday, July 25, 2016


UPDATED FOR 2016 FBI Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo is quick to point out that long-haul trucking is an honorable profession and that the overwhelming majority of drivers are not murderers—but it does happen, and the pattern is unmistakable. More than a decade ago, analysts for the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP)—the only national database of serial crimes—began to see a marked increase in the number of bodies recovered along the side of the road. A majority of the victims were truck-stop prostitutes, and it turned out that many of the suspects were long-haul truckers. “We had an inordinate number of victims and offenders from this rather specific population pool,” Palazzolo explained. To make matters worse, these cases are extremely difficult to investigate.

A long-haul driver can pick up a prostitute at a truck stop in Georgia, rape and murder her, and dump her body on the side of the road in Florida later that day. The victim has no connection to the area where she was found, and there may be no forensic evidence to collect because the crime was committed hundreds of miles away. The local police detectives investigating the case might have little experience dealing with a crime of this nature and may be faced with few, if any, leads. To raise awareness among law enforcement agencies—and the public—about highway serial killings, and to focus ViCAP resources on helping to solve these cases, in 2004 the FBI began the Highway Serial Killings (HSK) Initiative, with support from the trucking industry. “We want to help local law enforcement agencies tie their cases to similar cases nationwide,” said Palazzolo, who has been managing the initiative for the past four years. 

“That’s where ViCAP comes in, because the database can make those connections.” Without ViCAP—part of the FBI’s National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime—local law enforcement agencies investigating one of these cases may have no way of knowing a murder in their jurisdiction is similar to killings committed elsewhere. Since the initiative began, ViCAP analysts have compiled a list of more than 750 murder victims found along or near U.S. highways, as well as nearly 450 potential suspects. The analysts also began to develop detailed timelines on many of the suspects. The information in the timelines, obtained from company logs, gas station receipts, and other records, helps investigators pinpoint where a suspect was when murders were committed. “It’s not unusual for a driver to pass through five or even seven states in one day,” Palazzolo said. “The amount of ground they cover and the lack of any connection to where they’re passing through makes it difficult to tie cases back to them.”

So the timelines become crucial to investigations. The goal for ViCAP analysts is to obtain as many records from as many sources as possible to determine a driver’s whereabouts at fixed points in time. “Those details are what ultimately will help tie the suspect back to the murders,” Palazzolo said. “According to the Department of Transportation,” she said, “the number of truck drivers on the road in the next 20 years is going to grow exponentially. So if we’ve already identified a population from which we are getting a significant number of offenders, and if we are going to be seeing more and more trucks on the road, the potential for additional highway serial killings is definitely there.

FBI CONNECTS THE DOTS IN 29 UNSOLVED MURDERS THAT INDICATES I-4 SERIAL KILLER IN FLORIDA IS A LONG HAUL TRUCKER. FBI Highway Serial Killings Map New Initiative on an Emerging Trend updated May 2016: The FBI suspects that serial killers working as long-haul truckers are responsible for the slayings of hundreds of prostitutes, hitchhikers and stranded motorists whose bodies have been dumped near highways over the last three decades. FBI claims a serial killer is working I-4 corridor in Florida from Daytona Beach to Orlando to Tampa Fl with over 29 unsolved murders of females with bodies left near the interstate. Dayton Beach police are working a series of unsolved murders of 4 women linked to prostitution and acknowledge that they have a serial killer, but the Sheriff Department in Orange County and the Sheriff Department in Polk County and the Sheriff Department in Hillsborough County have no active serial killer cases that they are working, so Who’s Zoomin’ Who? Don’t you think the FBI should clue in local law enforcement? See FBI link to map https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/violent-criminal-apprehension-program-part-2

The FBI has joined a local investigation into an Ohio truck driver facing multiple murder charges to see if there are any unsolved killings he may have had a part in, authorities said. Robert Rembert Jr. pleaded not guilty and was ordered held on $5 million bond. Truck driver is a serial killer, Cleveland OH. “Robert G. Rembert Jr., DOB 3/15/1970, age 46, is a serial killer”. So far, we know he’s purposefully executed five people, some shot in the head,” Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said. “An investigation of his activities as an over-the-road truck driver is currently underway.” Indicted by a grand jury Tuesday October 14th, 2015 is Robert G. Rembert Jr. age 45. Robert (Bobby) Rembert was arrested after taking a shower at a truck stop near Seville, Ohio in Medina County on Sept. 21, 2015.

HOUSTON Posted on Mar 29, 2012; A Texas trucker who kept a torture dungeon in the cab of his long-haul rig has avoided the death penalty by accepting life prison sentences for murdering a hitchhiking couple two decades ago. Robert Ben Rhoades, DOB 11/22/1945, age 71, who already is serving a life sentence for killing a 14-year-old girl in Illinois, pleaded guilty to two counts of capital murder when he appeared before a West Texas judge this week. He has no chance of parole. Described by authorities as a sadistic killer, Rhoades was charged with the 1990 abductions and slayings of newlyweds Douglas Scott Zyskowski, 28, and Patricia Walsh, 24. Authorities said the couple left Seattle in November 1989, and were hitchhiking to Georgia to preach the Christian gospel when they accepted a ride from Rhoades near El Paso. Long Haul Trucker and Serial Killer Robert B. Rhoades picked up young females then raped and tortured them and left their bodies in Texas, Utah and Illinois..”A state trooper near Casa Grande, Ariz., stopped on I-10 to check on a tractor-trailer with blinking lights in April 1990. He discovered Rhoades inside the cab with a hysterical naked woman who had been chained and shackled to a wall. She later told investigators that she’d been tortured and whipped, that Rhoades told her he was known as “Whips and Chains” and had been involved in such activity for years”.

MISSING: Carmen Purpura, 31, was last seen on July 11, 2007, at a truck stop in Indianapolis. The cab of truck driver Bruce Mendenhall, DOB 4/13/1951, age 65, and suspected serial killer was “awash with blood” belonging to 10 different people, said a prosecutor who charged him with murdering a missing woman. Carmen Purpura’s body has not been found, but the prosecutor said her blood soaked the seats in Bruce Mendenhall’s cab, and that so much of her blood was there she could not possibly be alive. Truck driver Bruce Mendenhall, 64, is a convicted serial killer. He has been found guilty of the June 26, 2007 murder of Sara Hulbert in Tennessee. He has been charged with the murders of three other women at truck stops in Alabama, Indiana and Tennessee, see copy of his CDL truckers license above.

Detectives inspect the interior of Bruce Mendenhall’s truck. A detective asked to search it, as it matched a description of a truck seen at a truckstop where a victim’s body was found. Bruce Mendenhall drove the truck seen above into the parking lot of Truck Stops of America in Nashville, Tenn.(Courtesy Metro Nashville Police Department).

I have done extensive research into multiple unsolved murders, mostly young women involved with drugs and prostitution, of victims whose bodies have been found along the interstate highways of the USA. FBI Report Highway violence; In the past four decades, over 500 unsolved deaths and 41 attempted homicides are believed to be linked to serial killers who are using the nation’s highways as truckers to find and dispose of their victims. 33 bodies n Florida, 38 bodies in Texas and 37 bodies in California are the top 3 in the body count nation wide.

Sarasota Herald Tribune Continues to Whitewash Imam’s Links to Al-Qaeda at Local Mosque Prior to 9/11.

Monday, July 18, 2016

Private Investigators like myself call links to terrorist organizations, close association to known terrorists and speaking of suicide bombers in a favorable manner as clues to an individuals mind set. The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported that the Imam at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton had been the roommate of Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa before he came to Sarasota in March of 2000 or that Imam Muneer Arafat was arrested by ICE and the FBI in November 2002 and sent to testify before a Federal Grand Jury in St Louis investigating 9/11 terrorist links.  
 0fba7-inside-the-911-saudi-cover-up (2)
The Sarasota Herald Tribune also never reported that Imam Muneer Arafat and his terrorist linked pal Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa  were fund raisers for the Holy Land Foundation in Texas a front for the Hamas terrorist organization. It is no coincidence that Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat shows up at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton in the spring of 2000 and into 2003. It is no coincidence that Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat shows up in Sarasota Fl just prior to Mohamed Atta and his two 9/11 hijack pals showing up in June of 2000. Sarasota FBI Special Agent Thomas R. Baugher, who I met on several occasions at the Sarasota Police Department Intel Division during 2002 and 2003, told me that there are “Never Any Coincidences in Terrorism”.

The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported that Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat and Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel had raised $20,000 for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) in Texas. On May 27th, 2009, U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis sentenced the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) president and five of its leaders following their convictions by a federal jury in November 2008 on charges of providing material support to Hamas a designated terrorist organization. HLF was incorporated by Shukri Abu Baker, Mohammad El-Mezain, and Ghassan Elashi. Mufid Abdulqader and Abdulrahman Odeh worked as fund raisers, they all received individual prison terms from 15 years up to 65 years, Muneer Arafat escaped prison time.

Sarasota Herald Tribune Never Reported Arrest of Imam Muneer Arafat or His Testimony at a Federal Grand Jury Terrorism Investigation in St Louis or His Undercover Work For FBI in 2002. The November 20th, 2002 arrest of Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was front page news in St Louis on January 20th, 2003. On the other hand the Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported the November 2002 arrest of Imam Muneer Arafat by Federal Agents in Sarasota Fl for overstaying his visa.

Sarasota Herald Tribune Continues to Whitewash Imam’s Links to Al-Qaeda at Local Mosque Prior to 911.

The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported that after his November 2002 arrest Muneer Arafat was required to give testimony at a Federal Grand Jury Terrorism Investigation in St Louis concerning links to the 9/11 attacks and information about his former Al-Qaeda linked roommate Ziyad Sadqua aka Ziyad Khaeel. “One witnesses was Muneer Arafat, who formerly lived in the St Louis area and moved in 2000 to Sarasota, Fla where he was the Imam of a mosque, Arafat is a Kuwaiti of Palestinian descent”

The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported on the undercover work (wearing a wire) Muneer Arafat did for the FBI in 2002 regarding a group of Sarasota Muslim businessmen and their links to a terrorism support network. Muneer Arafat was the Imam at the Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center Mosque at 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl from March of 2000 to the end of 2003. Mohamed Atta and other 9/11 Hijackers followed Muneer Arafat to the Sarasota area in June of 2000. The Sarasota Saudi al-Hiijjii Family had been members of the Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center Mosque, where Muneer Arafat was the Imam, from at least 1996 until their departure in August 2001. It would not be unreasonable to maintain that Muneer Arafat also visited the 4224 Escondito Circle house as he was the al-Hiijjii family’s Imam or Holy Man from March 2000 to August 2001. 
 af1b1-issb-7
In St. Louis, from 1996 to 2000, Muneer Arafat became a well-known lecturer at different Masjids and built up quite a following. He gave lectures at local mosques that almost exclusively focused on Jihad week in and week out and this got him into trouble with Sheikh Muhammad Nur of the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis who at one point banned him from giving lectures at the Gateway Masjid. Muneer Arafat was preaching terrorism, OK to be a suicide bomber. From open court records in Tampa during the Sami al-Arian trial it has been revealed that Muneer Arafat had become an informant for the US Department of Justice (FBI) and they had paid him $35,000 to spy (wear  a wire) on a group of Muslim businessmen in Sarasota Fl during 2002, “The FBI Secret Sarasota Saudi Investigation.”

During the time frame of March 2000 to August 2001 the Islamic Society of Sarasota Bradenton 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl was home to Jihad preaching Imam Muneer Arafat whose prior roommate in East St. Louis was Osama bin-Laden’s Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa. Wherever Imam Muneer Arafat went his close friend and often roommate Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa was not far behind. 
 muneer arafat sarasota mosque
The short list of Muslims directly linked to terrorism who visited the Islamic Society of Sarasota Bradenton (ISSB) during the time frame are Jihad preaching Muneer Arafat seen sitting in photo above, terrorist Wissam Hammound (in prison), Al-Qaeda leader Adnan El-Shukrijumah, Abdulaziz al-Hijji (who met with 9/11 hijackers in his Sarasota Home), Sami Al-Arian (arrested and jailed) and Mazen Al-Najjar (deported). FDLE documents stated that imprisoned terrorist Wissam Hammoud told the FBI in 2004 that Abdulaziz al-Hijji was an acolyte of Osama bin Laden who prior to 9/11 had introduced him to terrorist Adnan el-Shukrijumah at a soccer game at the Sarasota mosque, Islamic Society of Sarasota Bradenton 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd.
 
Wissam Hammoud told investigators that he often exercised with Abdulaziz al-Hijji and that the two played soccer together on property surrounding a Sarasota mosque with Al-Qaeda terrorist Adnan El-Shukrijumah “….FDLE reports buttress key elements of the story, while providing new details: Sarasota cell phone store owner Wissam Hammoud said the two men worked out together at Shapes Fitness in Sarasota. Hammoud stated he met ALHIJJI through his own relatives in Sarasota, (the Kazbour’s) in 1996. He described ALHIJJI as a heavy drinker and smoker of cannabis, however very well schooled in Islam. 
 8cc15-4576e-wissamhammoud-newphoto
Sarasota cell phone store owner Wissam Hammoud indicated that ALHIJJI’S wife ANWD GHAZZAWI (maiden name) had family that provided her with money. He told the FBI Al-Hijji that “Osama bin Laden was a hero of al-Hijji.” He added that Al-Hijji showed him a “website containing information about bin Laden,” and spoke of “going to Afghanistan and becoming a freedom fighter.” Al-Hijji also tried to recruit him, Hammoud said. According to Hammoud, al-Hijji also talked of “taking flight training in Venice.” He said he believed “al-Hijji had known some of the terrorists from the September 11, 2001 attacks” who were students at an airport there. The “Sarasota Mosque” is the Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center on Lockwood Ridge Rd, at the time (6/2000 to 1/2001) the Holy Man at the mosque was Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat, see http://billwarnermyblog.wordpress.com/2013/08/17/sarasota-imam-muneer-arafat-linked-to-al-qaeda-agents-in-usa-turned-fbi-informant-appears-to-be-now-in-the-federal-witness-protection-program-wth/.  

The Al-Hijjis, photo above, were married in May 1995 at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton, they had been in the Sarasota Fl area for at least 6 years prior to 9/11/2001, plenty of time to set up a base of operations for Mohamed Atta and other members of the 9/11 hijackers. Abdulaziz Al-Hijji, DOB 12/28/19723, as per a unpaid parking ticket in Manatee County Fl, was driving a 1999 tan Jeep with Fl Tag VAS14W and had Fl Drivers license number A420001734680 with a issue date of 09-12-1995, he got a duplicate Fl drivers license in 1997, 1998 and 2000. Wissam Hammoud himself, speaking from prison, said al-Hijji “had a lot of hatred towards everyone in America.” He said he had thought al-Hijji “nuts” when he asked him to go fight in Afghanistan. Wissam Hammoud’s 2003 charges were solicitation to commit murder, retaliating against a witness, use of a firearm during a crime of violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, he could have got LIFE. Wissam T. Hammoud is currently in the Federal Correctional Insititute in Milan MI, a low security federal correctional institution with a detention center, with a release date of 2023, he will be 57. Hammoud agreed to cooperate in unspecified investigations.

Ashley Byers the District Manager For Donald Trump Campaign In Sarasota and a Swimsuit Model Just Happens to be One of the Hardest Working People on His Team.

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Ashley Byers the District Manager For Donald Trump Campaign In Sarasota and a Swimsuit Model Just Happens to be One of the Hardest Working People on His Team. Some small time ‘online rags’ like the Washington Times and Heat Street (whatever the hell that is) have published their ‘exposes’ of Ms Byers portraying her as a swimsuit model on the Trump payroll for $3 grand a month plus travel expenses to serve as a token office manager giving the impression that she does nothing more than look good at rallies for Trump, bull crap. Ashley Byers was working 10 to 12 hour days, 7 days a week during all the Trump primaries at the Sarasota office, I know I was there.
WASHINGTON TIMES WROTE: “A swimsuit model was reportedly paid $3,000 a month plus travel expenses to serve as the office manager for a Donald Trump campaign office in Florida. Ashley Byers, 22, who has an account at ModelMayhem.com under the name Christina Alessia, was tasked with managing a campaign office in the Sunshine State, traveling on at least one occasion to other states to warm up crowds at rallies, Heat Street, a Dow Jones-owned news and commentary site, reported Monday.”

I joined the Trump Campaign back in January and was introduced to Ashley Byers and her mother Alicia at the Trump HQ in Sarasota Fl by Joe Gruters the Florida Co-Chairman For Donald Trump’s Campaign and was quickly impressed by her resolve and dedication to the Trump Campaign. Ashley Byers and her mother literally worked day and night, 7 days a week, from January through all the primaries into May of this year, Trump’s last primary, getting $3,000 a month for 70 hour work weeks is chump change. Ashley Byers could get $1,000 a day or more as a full time swimsuit model.
Ground Game at Donald Trump Campaign State HQ 1517 State St Sarasota Fl was Going Full Tilt 7 Days a Week Under Direction of DM’s Ashley Byers and Alicia Byers. Jennifer R. Locetta is the Deputy State Director in Sarasota with District Managers Ashley Byers and Alicia Byers, Ken Mayo was the Director of Field Operations Sarasota. Ashley Byers and Alicia Byers have been working 7 days a week with no time off to direct the highly active ground game coming out of Donald Trump Campaign State HQ 1517 State St Sarasota Fl. Their hard work is apparent as in each and every poll run by the Sarasota Herald Tribune newspaper Donald Trump dominates the GOP field. I was there Sunday 2/28/2016 and and a full bank of volunteers were working the phones, as usual, this is in direction contradiction to the articles published by far left liberal Herald Tribune Political Reporter Zac Anderson who has consistently panned the “Sarasota Ground Game” for Donald Trump as almost non-existent, yeah Zac that’s why Trump won most of the primaries and is the last man standing for the GOP.
Ashley Byers is a smart, dedicated and very personable young woman and an asset to the Trump Campaign, she just also happens to be a swimsuit model who put a hold on her modeling career (she looks like a young Demi Moore) to work for the Trump Campaign, soooooo what? The gossip mills at the Washington Times and Heat Street (whatever the hell that is) have made up a false story indicating that the Trump Campaign is broke, how stupid, and that Trump OK’d a monthly stipend of $3,000 a month and travel expenses to Ashley Byers to just look good at rallies and nothing more, how ridiculous!

Private Eye Bill Warner Questions Lack of FBI Closure in Multiple Missing Look-A-Like Gone Girls Such As Alivia Kail Possibly Taken by Sex Slave Traffickers to Florida

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

PITTSBURGH —According to the FBI, the case of a missing Brookline girl has taken a major twist. Channel 11’s Alan Jennings confirmed that the FBI believes Alivia Kail is still alive, see her photo above, and she may be a victim of sex trafficking in Florida. Kail, who disappeared in 2011 when she left for Florida with her boyfriend, could be enslaved by human traffickers, her mother said. Missing Patricia Scala from Sarasota Fl, her photo below, resembles missing Alivia Kail who has long blond hair, 5′ 1″ tall and 109 lbs, 19 years old, who went missing Friday 3/05/2011 from the Pittsburgh PA area on a trip to Naples or Miami Florida. Kail told family she was going to Florida with a boyfriend for the second time after returning only days earlier from Florida. Family members became concerned when her phone was shut off for nonpayment after she failed to answer for days and was not making contact with them, or her friends. This was out of character. 
 
Alivia Kail’s boyfriend Alexander Lorenzi had made multiple trips to Southwest Florida, the Naples, FL and Miami, Fl, areas in the weeks before his arrest on March 30th, 2011 on charges unrelated to Alivia’s disappearance, why was Alexander Lorenzi traveling to Naples Fl.

UPDATE: June 30, 2016 Southwest Florida Sex slave trade arrest in Naples Fl. The latest arrest in Operation Human Freedom was made on Wednesday June 29th, 2016 when Collier deputies arrested Miguel Aguilar of Tampa, charging him with human trafficking. Another bust in Bonita Springs led to the arrest of Anahi Bengoechea — known as Christina to the women she forced into sex slavery. Operation Human Freedom investigated by the Officer of Statewide Prosecution began in 2013. More than 10 people have been arrested with Aguilar being the latest arrest. These men and women are accused of trafficking women to brothels across the state and threatening to hurt their families if they didn’t follow orders. According to the report, some of those brothels are in Bonita Springs, Immokalee, and Naples. I am well aware of the sex slave trade in Southwest Fl the Naples-Fort Myers Fl area is just a short 2 hour drive from my office in Sarasota Fl on I-75.

Gone Girl Jennifer Kesse From Orlando Fl is on Long List of Young Blond Females Missing In America Possibly Taken by Human Traffickers. Ten years after an Orlando woman disappeared without a trace in a case that has stumped investigators, police and the family of Jennifer Kesse are pleading with the public for information to help them solve the investigation. “We will not stop or let up on our efforts to locate Jen and bring her home,” the woman’s father, Drew Kesse, told Fox News on Friday. “It has been a very long road and quite challenging at times but our hope is still strong and our strength is too until we can end Jennifer’s personal hell,” Kesse said. Known by friends and family simply as “Jenn,” the 24-year-old Orlando woman was last seen alive on Jan. 23, 2006.

The Orlando Police Department had hoped for a break in the case when it released security footage of a person (male or female) seen parking Jennifer Kesse’s vehicle near a pool at an apartment complex and walking away. But the suspect – who appears to be between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-5 – has never been identified.

The person seen walking away from kidnapped Jennifer Kesse’s vehicle is wearing a white short sleeved shirt and white slacks with dark shoes typical of people who work in large commercial kitchens in the food service industry. The person appears to have dark hair pulled back into a short ‘bun’ at the back of his/her head which is also also indicative of people who work in large kitchens in the food service industry, like in a hospital kitchen, there are several hospitals nearby to where Jennifer Keese’s car was fond at 5176 Downing St, Orlando, FL 32839.
 

South Florida currently ranks as the third busiest capital for human trafficking in the U.S. Human sex trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States according the Department of Justice, and it’s happening right here in the Newtown Sarasota and Bradenton Florida area. Sex Slavery Arrest in Sarasota Case Girl sold Online: A Bradenton Fl man has been charged with human trafficking a 15-year-old runaway called O.H., Elroy Johnson, 38, was arrested, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. The girl said she was picked up by a guy named “Coby” — later identified as Elroy Johnson — on Jan. 19 near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Nestwon section of Sarasota. O.H. agreed to ride around with him, and he allegedly gave her marijuana, according to the sheriff’s office. The girl reported that Johnson also gave her alcohol that she believed may have been drugged, his arrest report states. 

 Over the course of that night, she and Johnson had sex in the back of his SUV three times, his arrest report states. Johnson allegedly took a photo of the girl and posted it to www.backpage.com. The girl told deputies she saw an advertisement with her picture and similar postings all with Johnson’s phone number listed. See http://sarasota.backpage.com/FemaleEscorts/. Elroy Johnson allegedly drove the girl to GardenWalk apartments, 5310 26th St. W., Bradenton, where she had sex with a 27-year-old man. She was paid $200 for one hour, and that money would be split between her and Johnson, his arrest report states, read more CLICK HERE.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Updated July 15th, 2015. Private investigator: Ky missing women may be related to other cases. Florida private investigator Bill Warner believes more than a dozen missing persons cases from Kentucky and surrounding states may be connected. The faces of the young women on private investigator Bill Warner’s blog are similar but behind each smile is a different family searching for answers. “It just escalated over the last two or three years,” Bill Warner said. “It continued, the same profile, young female with long blond hair, same petite size, it just kept happening over and over and over again.” One of the earliest cases on his web page is from Lexington. “And there was no person of interest, there was no suspect, there was nothing for these families to get some closure, it just kept happening,” Bill Warner said. The latest face on his wall belongs to Brookelyn Farthing, who was 18 years old when she disappeared. She’s been missing since June 2013 from Madison County. Kentucky State Police are investigating her disappearance. See WKYT CBS TV News Video at http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/Private-investigator-believes-Kentucky-missing-person-cases-may-be-related-239509891.html?ref=891

I just read all your articles about the girls that are missing and have been murdered. A lot of them from Florence, KY area. I think you are right, there seems to be a connection in the cases. It’s weird how a lot from the same area and the police says there’s no connection. Keep up the good work sir. My son dated Brooklyn Farthing, the one missing from Richmond, KY.

CIA Director Warns ISIS Style Terror Attack At US Airports Like At Turkish Airport Already in Planning Stage as Terrorism Expert Bill Warner Talks About Lack of Security at TIA

Saturday July 2nd, 2016

VIDEO: Sarasota Private Investigator Bill Warner looks into security issues at Tampa International Airport after ISIS attacks airport in Istanbul Turkey.

CIA Director John Brennan, one day after the deadly terror strike on the Turkish airport, warned that the Islamic hate group was likely plotting the same type of carnage for American soil. The trio of bombers, each wrapped in a suicide vest, arrived at the airport via taxi before starting their choreographed destruction. Though initially stymied by airport security, they wasted little time before unleashing the attack intended to inflict maximum bloodshed. 

“When the terrorists couldn’t pass the regular security system, when they couldn’t pass the scanners, police and security controls, they returned and took their weapons out of their suitcases and opened fire at random,” said Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim. The first bomber walked inside the international arrivals terminal, started blasting away with an assault rifle and then detonated his vest, Turkish officials said. The second bomber bolted inside through the ensuing chaos, ran upstairs and set off his bomb. The third terrorist waited outside, detonating his explosives as terrified people ran for safety — only to find more death.

June 30 2016, TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The terrorist attack at Istanbul Atatürk Airport has officials across the United States on alert. Airport officials are worried about other terrorists and copycats. News Channel 8 talked with a terrorism expert about Tampa International Airport. We walked through the airport with the expert. Sarasota private investigator Bill Warner said once you’re past the TSA security checkpoint, you’re good to go. However, he said, the airport is extremely vulnerable before that point. His concern starts at the curb. “There’s no security here to stop and search cars,” Warner explained. “That’s not how it is.” He also pointed to the crowded shops and stores. There’s a black hole the airport has to fill, Bill Warner said.


“If they get this far … it’s a big problem,” he warned. Bill Warner showed News Channel 8 the strengths and weaknesses of the airport’s security. Bill Warner said Tampa International may be more vulnerable than other airports. “I would say from my point of view, yeah … You have multiple entrances on both sides of the building, vulnerable to a car bomb outside, vulnerable to a terrorist attack in the doorways,” he said. With that said, there are safeguards in place. “The dog walking around here with the police officer, the armed police officer, that’s great,” Bill Warner said. “Checking out bags, checking out garbage bags. That’s what needs to be done.” 

Most travelers News Channel 8 spoke with said they feel safe. “I think if it’s your turn, it’s your turn,” Mark Sheffer, of Tampa, said while waiting for a friend to arrive from London. “You can’t really question and live your life in fear.” Yvonne Armstrong was traveling home to New York. She echoed a similar sentiment. “You can’t go around being afraid,” Armstrong said. “You just have to live your life. You can’t just worry about constantly being attacked.” Bill Warner believes people are becoming very complacent even though an attack, he says, is definitely possible. He believes people should be worried, especially with the military’s presence in the Tampa Bay area. “MacDill Air Force Base, CENTCOM (U.S. Central Command), is the one who operates all the drones in the Middle East taking out ISIS soldiers,” Warner added. “So as far as payback, yeah. We’re probably at the top of their list.” read more at http://wfla.com/2016/06/29/terrorism-expert-talks-about-security-at-tampa-international-airport/

Individuals tied to Huffman Flight School and 9/11 Hijackers by FBI linked to 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota as family members appear to be Abdulaziz al-Hijji and Adel Ghazzawi son of Esam Ghazzawi.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Individuals tied to Huffman Flight School and 9/11 Hijackers by FBI linked to 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota as family members appear to be Abdulaziz al-Hijji and Adel Ghazzawi son of Esam Ghazzawi. In the year 2000, Sarasota Saudi’s Abdulaziz al-Hijji then age 27 and his brother in law Adel Ghazzawi then age 30, were contemporaries of 9/11 Hijack Pilots Ziad Jarrah then age 25, Marwan Al-Shehhi then age 22, and Monamed Atta then age 32 who all appear to have taken Flight Training in Venice Fl at the same time, small world, eh? Claims of a coverup of the 9/11 attacks. That’s what 60 Minutes reported back in April 2016 featuring former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham. Bob Graham was the chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee looking into the 9/11 attacks and had complete Top Secret clearance. Not only is he upset that 28 pages he helped write about the origin of the attack is being withheld from you, he is also upset the FBI is withholding thousands of pages of key information from top leaders in Congress. 

“I am concerned that if there was a network assisting the 19 hijackers in place in 2000 and 2001,” Graham told us in 2014, “there’s no reason to believe that it was eliminated.” Former Senator Bob Graham says the 28 classified pages would not only show a closer tie to the government of Saudi Arabia financing the 9/11 attack, but also would show a further connection with the hijackers and a Saudi family living in Sarasota. Twelve days before the attack, the family with ties to the royal family abruptly abandoned the house in a gated Sarasota community leaving behind food, clothing, furnishings and three vehicles. ”There are some things I can’t talk about, there are others what I know is involved in the investigation in Sarasota which is diametrically opposed to what the FBI said publicly,” Graham explained.

In the report above the names, addresses and dates of birth of three individuals tied to Huffman flight school were blanked out before the records were released, they are linked to the al-Hijji house as family members, appears to be Abdulaziz al-Hijji and Adel Ghazzawi aka Adel Ghazzaui son of Esam Ghazzawi. If you combine the April 7th 2004 FDLE report testimony of Wissam Hammoud, see below, about Sarasota Saudi Abdull Aziz al-Hijji taking flight lessons at Huffman Aviation in Venice Fl during the same time frame as Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi in 2000 with the April 3rd 2002 FBI report seen above that indicates that at least two people linked to the al-Hijji house in Prestancia Sarasota Fl were taking flight lessons at Huffman Aviation with the 9/11 hijackers.

9/11 Terrorist pilot Ziad Jarrah arrived in the United States in June 2000, where he trained at Florida Flight Training Center in Venice Fl from June 2000 to January 2001, after relocating to Florida from New Jersey. Ziad Jarrah who trained at Florida Flight Training in Venice had visited the al-Hijji home in Prestancia  Sarasota Fl. Who coaxed Ziad Jarrah to come to Sarasota County to train to be a murderer?

One would reasonably conclude that Abdull Aziz al-Hijji was taking flight lessons with the 9/11 hijackers in Venice Fl during the year 2000. Huffman Aviation in Venice Fl is the key here, was Abdull Aziz al-Hijji already enrolled at Huffman Aviation in 2000 BEFORE Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi show up in June of 2000?? Sarasota FBI Field Agent Thomas Baugher told me at one of our meetings in Sarasota at the Sarasota Police Department Intel Unit ”THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES IN TERRORISM

Esam and Deborah Ghazzawi owned the Property at 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota Fl. According to a senior counterterrorism officer, both Esam Ghazzawi and his son-in-law Abdulaziz al-Hijji had been on a watch list at the FBI predating 9/11/2001. An unnamed U.S. agency tracking terror funds (ICE) had also taken an interest in them. “464 was Ghazzawi’s number,” the (ICE) officer said. “I don’t remember the other man’s number.” Of special interest is Esam Ghazzawi boss, the chairman of EIRAD Holding Co. Ltd., Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud. He is a prominent and powerful member of the ruling Saudi royal family who is expected to become crown prince, and thereby in line to become king. Born in 1956, which makes him approximately the same age as the Ghazzawi brothers, Prince Sultan bin Salman is a grandson of King Abdul Aziz founder of modern Saudi Arabia. It appears that Esam Ghazzawi named one of his sons Salman Ghazzawi after Prince Salman in 1983. Names listed at 4224 Escondito Circle:
1). ABDULAZIZ A. ALHIJJI, DOB 12/28/1973
2). ANOUD ESAM ALHIJJI, DOB 10/30/1977
3). SALMAN ESAM GHAZZAWI, DOB 3/19/1983 (son of Esam Ghazzawi).
4). ADEL ESAM GHAZZADI, DOB 11/18/1970 (son of Esam Ghazzawi).

Adel Ghazzawi aka Adel Ghazzaui and Esam Ghazzawi are both linked to an address on Putter Lane Longboat Key Fl in the 1990’s. The Ghazzawi family’s ties to America grew stronger in 1970, 17-year-old Esam Ghazzawi married American Deborah G. Browning. Their first child, Adel, was born that year on November 19th 1970. The family later established what has been a long presence in Southwest Florida, through the purchase of a pair of bayfront lots on Longboat Key’s Putter Lane. Neighbors had little interaction with the man they referred to as “the Arab.”“That’s what we called him,” said former neighbor Betty Blair. “We didn’t know his name. All we knew was his kids were in camp so he came for the summer. Two little boys, Adel and Salman.” When Ghazzawi left the U.S., Adel Ghazzawi apparently took over the family’s affairs here. It was Adel, then 30 and an American citizen, who tried to get a Prestancia lien lifted so the house could be sold. The lien came after the series of brushes with Prestancia’s community association. 

Esam Ghazzawi’s influence extends to his children. Esam Ghazzawi, his son, Adel, is a board member of the New York-based think tank EastWest Institute, which counts the likes of Michael Chertoff, a director of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush and co-author of the Patriot Act, and retired Gen. James L. Jones, a former national security adviser to President Barack Obama, among its members. Adel Ghazzawi operates Conektas, a firm in the United Arab Emirates that helps multinational companies establish businesses in the Middle East. Prince Sultan’s family is of enormous importance in today’s Saudi Arabia. His father, Prince Salman, has been the governor of the province of Riyadh (the city of Riyadh is the Saudi capital) since 1962, and is considered an arbitrator among the frequently warring members of the Saudi royal family, with its 4000 princes. “Adel Ghazzawi has a vast wealth of business, family and personal relationships within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” his biography reads.

Former Florida Senator Bob Graham, co-chair of Congress’s Joint Inquiry into the attacks a decade ago, has said the FBI did not disclose the existence of the Sarasota investigation to Congress or the 9/11 Commission. The records also show for the first time that Graham’s former colleague, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., queried Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller about the Sarasota investigation six days after its existence was disclosed in a story published simultaneously by BrowardBulldog.org and The Miami Herald on September 8, 2011. The story told how concerned residents in the gated community of Prestancia tipped the FBI after the attacks to the al-Hijjis’ sudden departure in late August 2001. The family left behind three cars, clothes, furniture, diapers, toys, food and other items. 

It also reported that a counterterrorism officer and Prestancia’s former administrator, Larry Berberich, said an analysis of gatehouse security records – log books and snapshots of license tags – had determined that vehicles either driven by or carrying several of the future hijackers including Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah who trained at Florida Flight Training in Venice had visited the al-Hijji home. Phone records revealed similar, though indirect, ties to the hijackers, said the counterterrorism officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity. In contrast, the newly released FBI records include a pair of two-page reports, written in response to the story, that reiterate the bureau’s public position that its investigation turned up nothing. One report, written on stationery of the Justice Department’s 9/11 prosecution unit, notes “the FBI appears not to have obtained the vehicle entry records of the gated community, given the lack of connection to the hijackers.”

But the counterterrorism source, who has personal knowledge of the matter, called that assertion “not true.” The Escondito Circle home where al-Hijji lived with his wife, Anoud, and their small children was owned by her parents, Esam and Deborah Ghazzawi. Esam Ghazzawi was an advisor to Prince Fahd bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, nephew of King Fahd. Prince Fahd, a prominent racehorse owner, died in July 2001 at age 46. Al-Hijji, who following 9/11 worked for the Saudi oil company Aramco in England, could not be reached by phone or email last week. He denied involvement in the 9/11 plot, which he called “a crime against the USA and all humankind.” The records as released do not identify al-Hijji or anyone else by name, citing various exemptions that protect persons’ names in law enforcement records. The names are apparent, however, because the documents describe unique, known events and were released in specific response to a request for information about the investigation at the al-Hijji’s residence.

While living in Sarasota Florida, Abdulaziz al-Hijji attended Manatee Community College (now the State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota) and, from January 2000 until April 2001, the University of South Florida. He earned a bachelor’s degree with a major in management information systems awarded in August 2001. In the weeks before 9/11, al-Hijji — then 27 — and his wife Anoud, daughter of an adviser to a member of the Saudi royal family, departed their home at 4224 Escondito Circle in the upscale gated community of Prestancia and returned to Saudi Arabia.

They left behind three cars and “numerous personal belongings including food, medicine, bills, baby clothing, etc,” according to the FDLE documents which state the family departed on Aug. 27, 2001.An April 16, 2002 FBI report says “repeated citizen calls” led to an inspection of the home by agents of the Southwest Florida Domestic Security Task Force. “It was discovered that the [ family name deleted ] left their residence quickly and suddenly. They left behind valuable items, clothing, jewelry and food in a manner that indicated they fled unexpectedly without prior preparation or knowledge,” the report says. “Further investigation of the [ name deleted ] family revealed many connections between the [ name deleted ] and individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001,” the report says.
The report lists three of those individuals. While their identities remain secret, the first person on the list was described as “a [ name deleted ] family member.” That person and a second individual were said to be flight students at Huffman Aviation – the flight school at the Venice Municipal Airport attended by hijackers Atta and al-Shehhi. The third person on the list “lived with flight students at Huffman Aviation” and was “arrested numerous times by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office,” the report says. The next paragraph, which ends the report, is blanked out entirely. The document cites two reasons: an Executive Order that allows matters “to be kept secret in the interest of national defense or foreign policy” and the National Security Act, which lets the CIA director exempt his agency’s operational files from the Freedom of Information Act. FBI Special Agent Gregory Sheffield wrote the April 2002 report, according to the counterterrorism officer. His name is blanked out, too. A notice on the document indicates the censored information regarding the three individuals associated with the terrorist attacks is scheduled to remain classified for another 25 years – until March 14, 2038. The FBI released the records as a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by BrowardBulldog.org inches toward trial this summer in federal court in Fort Lauderdale. The suit was filed in September after the FBI rejected both a request for its investigative records and an appeal of that request. Thomas Julin, the news site’s attorney, called the FBI’s release of records that it had previously determined to be exempt from disclosure “highly unusual.” “The government initially took the position that it had no documents. It hasn’t explained why things changed,” said Julin, of Miami’s Hunton & Williams. Miami Assistant U.S. Attorney Carole Fernandez, who represents the FBI, declined comment.

The released FBI records are in two tiers: reports and other material written in 2001-2002 and memos, letters and email that followed publication of the first story about the matter in September 2011. A number of pages recount information provided to the FBI by mail carriers and others, including a Sept. 18, 2001 observation that the al-Hijji’s appeared to have “left in a hurry.” A Sept. 25 report talks of bank records that agents had obtained. The report was referred to the counterterrorism division’s Usama Bin Laden Unit/Radical Fundamentalist Unit. One of the reports written in September 2011, after the existence of the Sarasota investigation was revealed, discusses briefly the unnamed “family member” who took flight lessons at Huffman Aviation. “[ Name deleted ] was interviewed multiple times after 9/11 and identified Atta and al-Shehhi as individuals [ phrase deleted ] flight training at Huffman. However, investigation did not reveal any other connection between [ name deleted ] and the hijackers and the 9/11 plot,” the report says. FBI 302 reports about those interviews were not made public. Senate Judiciary chair Leahy’s inquiry is disclosed in a declassified Nov. 22, 2011 response letter written by Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich.

Weich called the FBI’s response to the 9/11 attacks “comprehensive and unprecedented.” He assured Leahy that agents found no evidence of contact between the hijackers and the al-Hijjis. Similarly, Weich denied Sen. Graham’s assertion that the FBI had not turned over its Sarasota records to Congress. The bureau, he stated, made all of its records available and suggested they may have been overlooked by investigators. “The FBI is unable to ascertain whether these investigators reviewed records concerning the Sarasota family. The FBI also has not identified any specific requests by the investigators concerning the Sarasota family,” the letter says. “You can’t ask for what you don’t know exists,” said Graham. In the weeks before 9/11, al-Hijji — then 27 — and his wife Anoud, daughter of an adviser to a member of the Saudi royal family, departed their home at 4224 Escondito Circle in the upscale gated community of Prestancia and returned to Saudi Arabia. An alarmed neighbor contacted the FBI. When several weeks passed without action, Prestanica resident and administrator Larry Berberich alerted local law enforcement. Authorities, including the FBI, moved in. The investigation led to a stunning development, according to Berberich and a counterterrorism officer who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“The car registration numbers of vehicles that had passed through the Prestancia community’s North Gate in the months before 9/11, coupled with the identification documents shown by incoming drivers on request, showed that Mohamed Atta and several of his fellow hijackers – and another Saudi terror suspect still at large – had visited 4224 Escondito Circle on multiple occasions,” the source said. The others included Marwan al-Shehhi, who plowed a United Airlines jet into the World Trade Center’s South Tower, Ziad Jarrah, who crashed another United jet into a Pennsylvania field and Walid al-Shehri, who flew with Atta on the first plane to strike the World Trade Center. Also identified as having visited: Saudi-born fugitive Adnan Shukrijumah. The source said law enforcement “also conducted a link analysis that tracked phone calls – based on dates, times, and length of phone conversations to and from the Escondito house – dating back more than a year before 9/11. And the phone traffic also connected with the 9/11 terrorists – though less directly than the gate logs did.”

WISSAM HAMMOUD SEEN AS TERRORIST ASSOCIATE: Documents the FBI now has released do not mention other known aspects of the Sarasota investigation, including troubling information provided to the FBI by al-Hijji’s former friend, Wissam Hammoud. The FDLE reports buttress key elements of the story, while providing new details: Wissam Hammoud, who said he met al-Hijji through relatives, said the two men worked out together at Shapes Fitness in Sarasota and played soccer at the local Islamic Society. He told the FBI Al-Hijji was “very well schooled in Islam” and that “Osama bin Laden was a hero of al-Hijji.” He added that Al-Hijji showed him a “website containing information about bin Laden,” and spoke of “going to Afghanistan and becoming a freedom fighter.” Al-Hijji also tried to recruit him, Hammoud said. According to Hammoud, al-Hijji also talked of “taking flight training in Venice.” He said he believed “al-Hijji had known some of the terrorists from the September 11, 2001 attacks” who were students at an airport there.

SARASOTA CELL PHONE DEALER LINKED TO TERRORISM/ST PETE TIMES. Wissam Taysir Hammoud, had plotted to kill a federal agent and an informant (CI), his photo above. In 2001, Wissam Hammoud was convicted for possession and transfer of a machine gun and a sawed-off shotgun, he sold the weapons to an undercover agent for the ATF Sarasota/Tampa Fl. Wissam Taysir Hammoud plead guilty after prosecutors agreed to recommend a reduced sentence of 17 years, (he could have got a life sentence) and Hammoud agreed to cooperate in unspecified investigations! Hammoud, who owned Budget Mobile cell phone business in Sarasota, told investigators he tried to kill two people because of their involvement in his 2001 conviction for possession and transfer of a machine gun and a sawed-off shotgun. Hammoud met in his store with two cooperating witnesses on Dec. 30, 2003, and demonstrated how he wanted the informant shot and killed, according to a signed plea agreement. Eight days earlier, he joked about decapitating the informant and sending his head to the agent’s house. FDLE Report April 7th, 2004 Wissam Hammoud testimony, see above, indicates that Sarasota Saudi Abdull Aziz al-Hijji was taking flight lessons at Huffman Aviation in Venice Fl during the same time frame as Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi in 2000. 
 
The same FDLE report also indicates that Sarasota Saudi Abdull Aziz al-Hijji had brought Al-Qaeda terrorist Adnan el-Shukrijumah to the Islamic Center of Sarasota and Bradenton on N. Lockwood Ridge Rd in Sarasota Fl to play soccer. The same FDLE report also indicates that Sarasota Saudi Abdull Aziz al-Hijji had a close relationship with Mohamed Mezroub and the two of them had talked of going to Afghanistan and fighting with the Taliban against US troops. Mohamed Mezroub was known to the Sarasota County Sheriff Dept.

Hammoud said al-Hijji “entertained Saudis at his residence” at “parties” that he himself did not stay for because – unlike al-Hijji as he remembered him – he “did not drink or smoke cannabis.” One Saudi Hammoud identified as an al-Hijji “friend” he brought to a soccer game at the Sarasota mosque in 2000 or 2001 was Shukrijumah. Hammoud’s wife and sister-in-law confirmed during recent interviews that they too knew the al-Hijjis and are familiar with elements of Hammoud’s account. Mrs. Hammoud, who asked that her full name not be used, got the impression from comments al-Hijji made that he was “anti-American.” Wissam Hammoud himself, speaking from prison, said al-Hijji “had a lot of hatred towards everyone in America.” He said he had thought al-Hijji “nuts” when he asked him to go fight in Afghanistan. Al-Hijji, while confirming he used to work out with Hammoud, described his life in Sarasota as quiet, centered on his wife and children. “My friends were very limited,” he explained. “Normally, I don’t hold parties in the house because I have little kids. I was not a frequent to any bars.” Prison officials have put Hammoud under heightened security measures due to his classification as a terrorist associate. Court records state the classification is based on what authorities said was Hammoud’s “support and membership” in a “Palestinian-related terrorist organization.”
