The Secret Seven Coalition and the Council of Concerned Citizens have been meeting in secret and staying behind the scenes for months, as many of the legal aspects of the Willard Cottrill Estate have started to play out. Always from the beginning, there was a problem with the accounting and a problem with Mike Murphy the executor of the Willard Cottrill Estate. Now we can ALL GET A CLUE for just in the last couple of days, Mike Murphy the executor called the courthouse and requested that he resign as the executor. Seriously? After the final settlement we all waited five years for, Mike Murphy thinks he can call the Gilmer County Circuit Court Clerk Karen Elkin and request that he be able to resign even though he is the one holding the $338,000.00 bond that is the only insurance now against the misconduct and mismanagement that has been going on since day one in regard to the Cottrill Estate.

The local Concerned Citizens have always stated that laws and rules were broken right out of the gate. However, lucky thing for the bad guys in this story is the fact that Gilmer County officials don’t give a fuck about laws or rules nor do they feel they personally have to adhere to norms and mores of a normal society. Down in Crooked County(Gilmer)they make their own rules. These facts are readily apparent when you watch this following video from November of 2013. Since then, legal experts and at least one big name homicide detective have agreed with the journalists that first discovered wrongdoing while investigating the facts of the Willard Cottrill murder case by conducting interviews and reviewing pertinent documents. Please review this video below of the Gilmer County Commission back when they first start to finally uncover a few truths about the estate which include, the fact that, there had been no accounting although accounting’s are required once a year by law on pending estates, and also the fact that the fiduciary commissioner has had no contact with the Gilmer County Commission in order to close out an estate that is a couple of years over due to be settled by the time of this video in 2013.

Mike Murphy announced last Friday he wants to resign as executor of the Cottrill Estate, even though the final settlement was rejected! Did he forget he is bonded for the discrepancies and money missing, is he too stupid to know that he is legally responsible for the lack of payment on the alleged sale of the some of the estate property?

Mike Murphy (shown in photo above) announced last Friday he wants to resign as executor of the Cottrill Estate, even though the final settlement was rejected! Did he forget he is bonded for the discrepancies and money missing, is he too stupid to know that he is legally responsible for the lack of payment on the alleged sale of some of the estate property?

When  you REVIEW the VIDEO BELOW FROM NOVEMBER OF 2013 keep in mind that the Final Settlement is now done,  and it was rejected, and that rejection has led to the executor Mike Murphy appealing to the 14th district Circuit Court for an appeal of that rejection, but Gerald B Hough has not written the order that does clarify and makes final officially the decision by the Gilmer County Commission based on the discrepancies found by the fiduciary commissioner Linda Huff. We here at the RGW knew about the problems with the accounting since we have had a copy of the accounting since it first became available, when it was first filed.

SO NOW MURPHY WANTS OUT, just when the HEAT is turned up due to the final settlement being rejected, mainly for the reason the accounting was a laughable piece of JUNK!! Murphy thought the people in Glenville were all backwoods hillbillies and they would not notice all of the thousands of dollars not accounted for. If you play this below video, you may find out for yourself, the oldest daughter of Willard Cottrill, the heir CUT OUT of receiving money for the alleged sale of some 40 odd acres reveal the upcoming problems that will be found with the estate and her immediate concerns then, which remain today.  It is interesting to note that the papers given to Marlea Cottrill at the end of this video by Brian Kennedy is paper work to file and appeal a decision by the Commission, which is essentially the latest action being taken by the executor of the Cottrill Estate.

Linda Huff, since this video of Marlea Cottrill before the Gilmer County Commission was published, WAS INDEED appointed as the new fiduciary commissioner. We concerned citizens guaranteed that she would find quite a lot wrong with the paperwork, and SHE DID!  Also the fact that an accounting for the estate had never been done, ever, should not be overlooked.

Will the Gilmer County Commission be put in a situation where they have to uphold the law, against outside people from New York State that think that Gilmer County people are all a bunch of hilljack hillbillies and they could never get caught for their alleged crimes?  Only time will tell …but we have a feeling it is not going to be easy going for Mike Murphy now, it all depends on how harsh the order is due out by Gerald B Hough prosecuting attorney for Gilmer County. Gerry represents the commission, and I predict, the order he serves Murphy, is going to be something that might bring matters to court for a true accounting of the entire matter, maybe, even a situation that could lead to others being implicated in wrongdoing besides the executor Mike Murphy.

Is TIME on our side West Virginia? Will Mike Murphy the executor along with his wife Venita Cottrill who administered a lethal dose of drugs to Willard Cottrill FINALLY be made to be held responsible for their wrongful actions, as well as the actions of others involved in this theft of property, and murder? Only time will tell… is TIME on OUR SIDE?!

Update February 4th 2015 NO PAPER WORK KIND OF DEAL ********************************************

This ONE MINUTE video above recorded by the staff at the Gilmer Free Press illustrates to the world that the Willard Cottrill Estate became UNTOUCHABLE as far back as December of 2012. We at Revenge of the Ghost Wolf had heard, even earlier than that, the fact that local attorney Shelly Morris DeMarino stated, “I wouldn’t touch the Willard Cottrill Estate case with a ten foot pole!”

This video also accurately pre dates the video used in the article above in which Brian Kennedy stated that Bernie Mauser was the current fiduciary, and that they had failed to make contact with him, however, clearly it was the Law Offices Of Bernard R. Mauser that was the fiduciary back then in 2012 at time this video was shot — And after that, Linda Huff turned down the invitation to take over the Cottrill Estate. But, after Marlea Cottrill’s appearance before the Commission in November of 2013, Larry Chapman became interested enough to get Linda Huff to finally agree to take on the Cottrill Estate as a Fiduciary. The husband of Linda Huff has worked for Larry Chapman as an employee for many years, so maybe Linda thought her saying YES finally would be a good career move for her husband.

NO Circuit Court needed to be involved, nor any bullshit paperwork agreed to by Brian Kennedy Gilmer County Commissioner, all it took was Larry Chapman saying, this is what we are going to do, so therefore it all became a no paper work kind of deal…
