It is IMPORTANT for us while enjoying this beautiful FALL WEATHER to REFLECT back on days gone by.. have we learned anything?  We have learned that the Crooks from Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River are as Crooked as ever and another decade has gone by.  It is important to remember the people we lost, and even the people we have lost here at RGW that no longer contribute because long term goals have been reached for some staff members and once you graduate.. YOU are gone.  SO let us celebrate fall and remember back to YET another murder in Gilmer County down by the Crooked River!

MURDER!  The Wrongful Death of Mark Medley Sanctioned by Gilmer County!!

This may be by far the most difficult article and truthful account we have had to relay to our readers. We were both shocked and surprised to discover the same names and some of the same public officials named in prior reports of misconduct, involved in a murder case so disturbing as to be almost unbelievable. We have taken multiple separate days to interview public officials, Mary Ann Campbell and relatives to get the account of the cold blooded killing of Mark Medley on July 26, 2006 in Gilmer County, WV, and have discovered never before mentioned facts in a case that got a great deal of press, both on TV and in print during the murder trial of April 2007.

The purpose here is to show again the state of despair in the Gilmer County Prosecution and legal system in the past seven years where often the innocent gets punished and the guilty walks free.

The matter of the statement made by Everett Campbell in court about having a 357 magnum on the floorboard of his car for deer hunting in late July really set the matter straight for another Gilmer County Court trial that was a complete mockery of justice from start to finish!

Gerald B Hough Gilmer County Prosecutor

There appears to be some very clear legal violations involving this murder trial gone wrong.

Reviewing this case and researching the data, we never once saw any information or an explanation as to why Everett Campbell possessed a firearm despite a past felony and an extensive criminal record.  Mark Medley was
40 years old when he was shot in the chest and killed by the blast from a long-barreled .357 revolver.
It is on record, according to Mary Ann Campbell, that Everett Campbell had threatened to shoot Medley prior to the July incident, which is certainly consistent with the action of premeditated murder.

According to a crime report, nearly 40% of all West Virginia murders are either directly or indirectly tied to domestic situations.

About an hour or so before the murder of Medley, Campbell spoke with Glenville Police Chief. Medley and Mary Ann Campbell asked for his help, but

Chief Moss[1] refused saying most of his men were not available and out on call. Why couldn’t the Police Chief just do his job and help them himself?  What they were both looking for was an escort to avoid a problem and possible violent confrontation.

Chief Moss had to have learned through his police training that domestic issues can blow up into violence and the immediate concern was most certainly a legitimate request for a situation in which they were both unarmed.
After reviewing all the news coverage of the incident and interviewing people that were actually there and talking to Mary Ann Campbell who was an eye-witness to the shooting, we came to the conclusion that the only reasonable answer for any future dealings in similar situations is – don’t expect any help from law enforcement in Gilmer County and come to the confrontation heavily armed!

If you were to find yourself in the same situation where some whack job control freak fires the first shot, then you would have no choice but to unload the 70 round banana clip of 7.62 that you happened to bring for self defense. Then, maybe you would have a chance of living through a bad scene in Gilmer County, in which you can get not even one person connected to law enforcement to come to your aid.

In this specific instance, that was the only answer for what was going to work over in Sand Fork, WV that day. But, unfortunately for all of us and unfortunately for the Medley family, Mark did not bring the AK to the killing that day!

Everette Campbell a convicted felon was allowed to carry a deadly firearm and I do not believe the fact that he was a convicted felon with a firearm was even brought up at trial

”Everett Campbell is nothing but a cold blooded killer, and most likely will commit crimes in the future every bit as heinous as his former crimes,” one public official stated after considering all the evidence and research completed on the slaying in Sand Fork!

After gathering facts from various sources during several interviews it is clear that the actual murder trial brought forward many false facts to confuse the jury and all the legal issues, and much of the real truth of the matter never made it to court. It was a case where David Karickhoff gave an excellent performance for the defense, against the second-rate performance by the Gilmer County Prosecutor, according to one law enforcement official.

Now this is an interesting concept considering Mary Ann Campbell was a witness for the prosecution but often made to feel that she was a defendant! She was often made to feel that she did something wrong. She was a mother who was separated from her children. Does anybody out there know what that feels like?

Many times Gilmer County history has shown that officers of the court pre-arrange and pre-decide a case before it ever makes it into the courtroom despite the efforts of law officers to bring charges for the actual crime committed. This case is a very good example of a good ole back woods Gilmer County trial.

We learned specific information was given about the wrong doing of the Previous Gilmer County Circuit Clerk and the fact that two members of the jury were closely associated with the family of Everett Campbell. So there are some immediate questions about this case in regard to the jury, and that same situation appears over and over in Gilmer County.
The REAL STORY of what happened began earlier in the summer of 2006. In the early part of July that year, Everett and Mary Ann Campbell had mutually agreed for Mary Ann to have the kids for a while during the summer at her home in Moundsville, WV.

This mutual agreement was well within the guidelines of their divorce and the children truly enjoyed time with their mother, as all children would.

Mary Ann Campbell preferred this situation as she reports that many times she was forced to have sex with Everett Campbell long after they were divorced when she had to go to his families’ home to see the kids. The sex was all part of a contingency of being able to visit her children, which we are willing to wager, was not part of the divorce agreement through the courts.

The former Mrs. Campbell got to truly enjoy spending time with her kids, and got some quality alone time with them that any parent would treasure that summer of 2006 in Moundsville. She was finally happy, getting her life back together and having her kids gave her the balance she had been searching for, for many years. The children truly loved being with their mother that summer.

Things were going perfectly and all was well until one day Mary Ann received a call from the niece of Everett. She spoke to her, and it was a friendly conversation, but in reality the whole purpose of the phone call was a ruse for a hidden purpose involving Everett’s sister, Sue Ann Scott, who got on the phone with a phony story about how her brother never lets her see the kids, blah blah blah.

Mary Ann got played for her sympathy of the situation and being a good down home properly raised young woman, tried to do the right thing by Sue Ann, and invited her over to see the children. What Mary Ann did not know was that Everett had asked his sister to go get the kids and bring them home at all costs. The new scheme was certainly not part of the arrangement Everett had made with Mary Ann, but Mr. Campbell obviously had control issues.

Sue Ann, through her false complaints and false story of wanting to see the kids, arranged to visit the Moundsville home, but when she arrived with her husband James they both asked if the kids could spend a week with them. The original purpose of the call and contact had immediately changed. That fact in itself would bring suspicion to the mind of any reasonable person.

Right from the start Mary Ann was unsure and did not feel right about farming out her kids to her ex-husbands sister, plus there could have been some legal repercussions from doing so. She did agree to allow her ex-sister in law and husband stay with the kids at her house, while she went to confer with her boyfriend Mark Medley to ask what he thought of her letting her kids stay with relatives. She needed an outside opinion.

“357 Evey,” Everette Campbell was only convicted of a misdemeanor, for a cold blooded murder in Crooked County, down by the Crooked River. The “GO TO” attorney David Karickhoff beat Gerry Hough like a bad step child in the courtroom, and Everette walked on a First Degree Murder charge he should have been convicted of!

Gilmer County Court Room in August Bond Hearing with Defense Counsel David Karickhoff

When Mary Ann returned, Sue Ann, James, and the children were all gone, and she panicked as any mother would. What an awful feeling and what terrible thoughts must have been rushing through the young mothers mind. Motherly instincts are very real in nature, but the Childs Services and the courts, and other agencies seldom consider these emotions to the degree that they should be considered. To them it is often cut and dry and black and white and a matter of seeing that all the paper work is in order.
Life is not black and white and cut and dry. Life is more about a mother’s love for her children and the sanctity of the family.

Most mothers would immediately get on the phone and start making calls, but for Mary Ann those calls went unanswered. Mary Ann wanted to call the police, but being young, was still a bit naïve about the wicked ways of the world and the crooked tricks of the jealous and evil.

Anything holy or sacred or loving or involving the love of family members or holding close those that are truly part of you dissolves away very quickly in a Gilmer County courtroom in a situation already decided in advance by a hand-picked jury that was completely manipulated by the powers that be.

We were hoping to have more information involving the jury tampering, but some people present at the time have had second thoughts about revealing more truth involving the Gilmer County Public Officials, given the current situation of allegations of criminal activity for other matters. Many people are worried about their futures in Glenville, their job, and their family if they

tell. Many are afraid of constant threats by the law breaking members of Glenville society of legal system. Considering what happened in the long forgotten death of Fred Hill, we can understand that way of thinking. But we heard it said that both Everett Campbell and Gerald B. Hough were actually in the jury room while the jury was technically convened. This is highly illegal, but the Gilmer County Prosecutor Gerald B. Hough has stooped to this sort of behavior before, according to various sources.

Truly, Everett could not stand the fact that his ex was finally happy and secure in a relationship with another man. This is an obstacle for many men in modern times. It is a difficult time, but the choices we make decide who we become, but Everett made a bad choice. He was so jealous that he was going to use the children as weapons to destroy that happy relationship and that happy home life and the best life Mary Ann Campbell had come to know in all of her 27 years.

Before her new found happy life was realized, while divorced and estranged, there was one incident in which Mary Ann went through an ordeal that was so horrible, she is still affected by it. She agreed to meet Everett for a dinner and spend time with their four year old daughter, but when she went to the room, Everett forced her sexually and forcibly held her head face down on the bed nearly smothering her while he ripped off her clothes and committed the act of sodomy in front of their screaming and crying daughter. The little girl was pleading for her daddy to stop hurting her mommy and making her cry. Everett replied with, “Shut the F (explicative) up and go back to sleep!”

Hurt both physically and emotionally by the incident Mary Ann Campbell sought the help of the Gilmer County Sheriff, Mickey Metz, and decided she wanted to press charges for being raped in an un-natural way in front of a four year old child. Mary Ann stated that Sheriff Metz did not bring charges against Everett and talked her out of signing the complaint.

Our findings reveal that often this is just how the good ole boys of Gilmer County do it, since Everett was closely associated with Sgt CJ Ellyson of the West Virginia State Police, who around the same time had somehow lost all the dope and guns and money from the evidence locker in Calhoun County, and crucial evidence needed to convict Chief Deputy Bandy of the Calhoun County Sheriff’s office was simply missing one day.

We guess it was no coincidence that Gerald B. Hough was assigned as special prosecutor to that case, and since he claims that CJ Ellyson is a good personal friend of his, it all seemed to add up to the fact that no cop or public official is going to jail for a crime on his watch, whether they are guilty or not!

This was all happening in the same time frame as the court case and arrest of a person we all came to know as 357 Evey!

Matters became more confused when out of the blue Mary Ann was arrested for a charge of attempted child concealment. We could not find a code for that charge, and we truly believe there is no code. Mary Ann had to come up with a large amount of money for bail.

The lawyer that was assigned to defend the former Mrs. Campbell was inept and she requested another lawyer. She said her assigned attorney had cookie crumbs on his mouth and appeared unkempt. When another woman attorney attempted to come to her rescue having witnessed her dilemma, Mary Ann tells us, Judge Facemire, Gerald B. Hough and a big giant Police man cornered the lady lawyer and threatened to have her disbarred if she ever came to their town and attempted to meddle in their affairs again.

The charges were later dropped because, we believe there was no law broken, there was no state code violation that we can find, but that is how they do it in Gilmer County.

The bail bond company made some fat cash and this same type of situation is all part of a regular scheme that is run right out of Central WV in Glenville!

“If for some reason you are targeted, then it could be likely you will find yourself arrested and facing prison for false charges, and then spend money on the local lawyers, and the bail bonds people, so they can kick down to their friends in law enforcement that just keep that money wheel rolling!”, a well-respected member of the community noted.

We have statements from a county employee who was a witness to meetings at the courthouse and was just a few feet away, and listened to a plan how to “Get” someone! “What can we charge him with? What is going to stick?” And in this case, big shot lawyers from out of town whose duty brought them to the courthouse for the day, were often invited to meet with the local lawyers that read like a WHO’S WHO of local power elite.

This sort of behavior is highly illegal, yet it seems it has become common practice in Gilmer County courthouse. Actually creating a crime to have someone arrested is highly unethical and very illegal, but yet we have the evidence of an eye witness that said these meetings lasted for several years, for just one high profile individual. We understand they are still working on making something up.

Mary Ann was disturbed that Sue Ann Scott, her sister in law just stole her kids from the house and got away with it.  A lot of pent up emotions burst forth on that very hot summer afternoon that Mark Medley died.

After coming into town and having a confrontation in the parking lot of the former Sports Bar known as the Main Event, Mark Medley and Mary Ann called 911 since Glenville Police Chief had turned them down on the offer of an escort. The call somehow never got answered.

As soon as they showed up at a home owned by a man named Harold that was about 200 yards from the Glenville State Police office, Everett pulled in behind them and his sister Sue Ann ran up on the porch yelling, “Shoot them dad, shoot them!” Harold, the father of Everett and Sue Ann, had a long barrel high powered rifle loaded and ready to go on the porch.

Everett fired his 357 magnum within seconds of exiting his vehicle, but missed, he fired again hitting Mark Medley in the chest!!

Mark went down, and Mary Ann ran to him and tried to get him in the vehicle to escape, but he collapsed. Then, Everett came up behind Mary Ann, grabbed her by the hair, and stuck the 357 to her head and said, “I am going to shoot you next b*tch!”

Medical teams were there in a few minutes and so were the WV State Police. Gilmer County Sheriff Mickey Metz showed up at the scene and found himself just directing traffic. Our research revealed when the medical team asked Mark if he had any allergies, he replied, “Yes I am allergic to mean people with guns!” Those were his last words!!

Mark died shortly after making that speech, while paramedics worked hard to revive him, but a 357 to the chest will kill you every time.

It was all a trap, it was nothing but a cold blooded murder July 26, 2006 the day Mark Medley died!

According to various sources, it has been discovered recently that Everett was being used as a Snitch by local law enforcement to set up buys of Meth. Technically Campbell acted as a confidential informant several times for Meth buys and was used to attempt to buy from local Meth labs. It is believed that he was also allowed to use drugs while performing these duties. If this fact can be substantiated it would explain a lot.
After it was all said and done, Everett escaped with one year in jail, his sister got custody of the children, and Mary Ann got nothing but grief.  Put yourself in this poor woman’s place.  The justice system and the courts failed her and the children that day.  How safe can one feel in a county such as this where the real criminals wear three piece suits, drive fancy cars, and have the power to destroy a family just because they feel like it?
But how do we explain to the Medley family that we are sorry that their son, their brother, their friend, their loved one, was brutally murdered for the pitiful reason of being the love interest of an honest woman that had an intensely jealous ex-husband.

If you are not part of the wheel that keeps things rolling in Glenville, West Virginia, then you better watch out for that wheel will roll right over you! So it seems. The place where a First Degree Murder is a Misdemeanor + Rewards!

Notes:

[1] Chief Moss was contacted about this case, and he asked for the date of the murder so he could check his logs. The date was given to him, and as of this time we have not heard from him.

[2] Our interview with a local police official who showed up after the incident, noted that Mary Ann Campbell and Mark Medley, while speeding toward Everett’s house, passed by the State Police Headquarters. He said the couple should have stopped at the State Police office before going to the crime scene to avoid any mishap!

[3] When interviewing several police officers, they all unanimously noted they could not absolutely believe how the Judge, Prosecutor, and Jury came up with “In-voluntary Manslaughter.” They all unanimously said, at the least the charge should have been “Voluntary Manslaughter” if not more.

    What a direct slap in the face to Hough it would be if another jurisdiction picked up this murder case and did it right and actually got convictions. Hough has wasted so much of the taxpayer’s money with his bone-headed moves to grant such immunities. Thanks for our commissioners headed by Larry Chapman for giving him a raise! Raise for what? Mr. Chapman was that some kind of pay off on taxpayers expense? You always cried the blues when others ask for raise, but had no problems here. Mickey Metz, you are the law enforcer of our county. How about taking care of these continuous criminal acts.

    I wouldn’t doubt that this is the end of Gerry Hough. Through the years the only cases he has prosecuted himself are the ones he felt he could make a deal and profit from. This one he really messed up on, starting with giving the sister-in-law the children when she is just as guilty as Everett.

    This is all very amusing. Hough is too busy on his daily personal life style to worry about trying a real case. I believe that ‘HE’ did it and will NEVER EVER have to worry about being prosecuted for it because of Hough’s moronic plea deal.

    Gerry Hough can’t try his way out of a paper bag. The jury was wrong for granting such immunity to this real killer. What a bone-head move that was. You really know how to work up a case for trial in Gilmer County, Gerry. How much of the taxpayers’ money did you waste on this one?

    Thanks to all that have commented to this traggic case. I agree that the mother of these children was wrongfully treated and is still suffering from the effects of this illegal ation by gilmer county court system.
    If there is anyone out there who would have the ablity to help this mother and her children please step up and help. That’s what our legal system is suppose to be for not to take advantage of young mothers and separating them from their children.

    Not really surprising This is just another case of picking which side of a case (the divorce in this instance) they are on and protecting that side with all they can muster no matter what. Typical of Gilmer County Law Enforcement where they decide the case not enforce the laws.

    In an idealistic world the good parent should have the child, but in the realistic world it doesn’t always happen. The judicial system is corrupt; it’s easy to pay someone off, especially in Gilmer County.
    How can a person who comes out of law school, having problem passing the bar exam, have to take it multiple time to pass, become a prosecutor for the county? He absolutely does not have any experience. That is why he always screws up and never does his due diligence. Does he even know what that is?
    He did not prosecute the criminal, he prosecuted the mother!! On whose side were you Gerry?

    I am surprised to see a case based on these facts and how the law handled it. It is surprising how the legal system sided with the criminal. I’ve never seen it happen. Even if the mother might not be the best, still, she did not kill anyone. She should have the children. Not the father, not the aunt, not anyone else.

    I can’t help it wondering, how does mothers, who stay home with their kids, do the house work (laundry, grocery shopping, cooking etc…), plus being home with their child after giving a painful birth and breastfeeding for over a year lose custody? Especially when the father committed a crime? I think single parents are great, no matter what gender, but this case bugs me and I really want the people involved look into this. The mother deserves the kids.

    I am pleased to announce to the State of West Virginia – that for the first time ever – most members of Law Enforcement and the many brave journalists that have had to remain underground for threat of false arrest for exercising their right of FREE SPEECH in Central West Virginia – finally agree on most of the facts and outcome of this case.

    All seem to be in agreement, that the killing of Mark Medley was First Degree Murder and certainly not a misdemeanor.

    If true facts revealed in other cases were to have the same result and same effect of agreement we would be well on our way of having a better, stronger and more unified community, in which we would be able to build trust in one another once again, just like in the days of old.

    We have all been separated by blatant misconduct in the Gilmer County Courts and County and City Govt.

    We need to put a stop to the misconduct and remove all public officials found guilty, and then hold them accountable for their wrongdoing.

    Simply put this jury was hand picked by officers of the court for a not guilty verdict on the first degree murder. Further investigation into the matter will now be conducted.

    David Lane Smith had quite a lot to do with the wrongdoing in this case and in many others such as the “Travesty JUNK Farm Equipment” case involving juries.

    Sheriff Metz only realized that farm equipment was rusted junk now 31 years old after reading the article on the internet.

    The court presented the equipment with brand new retail prices.

    A NEW federal criminal complaint was made 09 February, against Hough and State Police Sgt Branham for covering up the crimes in the courthouse.

    Sgt Branham was given exclusive information of how the public records fraud, and title fraud was committed, and then he refused to take evidence of the criminal complaint.

    Sgt Branham then shared the information with Gerry Hough who got to work tampering with evidence.

  • Crooked County Crooks/Consolidated Citizens Corp-Elkins

    Information obtained by sources involving Calhoun County SS has revealed that the infamous IKE Morris donated (GAVE) as a gift to the State Police the building now known as Gilmer County State Police Headquarters in Sand Fork.

    There was an exchange however, so although the matter looked like a donation, actually in reality Doug Morris who we all know runs WACO oil was stopped for speeding on I-79 and oh my god amazingly drugs were found in the car. Now I know when the matter came about where myself had some weed or what not in a vehicle, I sure as hell wasn’t going to speed, but then again, I am NOT a millionaire, nor the son of a millionaire. In fact, some say, I am the son of a son of a sailor, and some just say, hey man, can he ever be a son of a bitch if you piss that mother fucker off. Guess what I am pissed. In AMERICA we are not suppose to be able to BUY the police.

    The DOUG MORRIS drug charge just disappeared, but he did have to pay for the speeding ticket.

    But, in Gilmer County, consider the POLICE BOUGHT and PAID FOR!

    You see the deal is, they get the building and the property, but they have to leave the Power Elite alone and assist them in their criminal endeavors whenever called upon to do so.

    The POWER ELITE have their own Police Force there in Gilmer County and it is the CROOKED COUNTY STATE POLICE from GLENVILLE West Virginia.

    Sgt Branham was given exclusive information of how the public records fraud, and title fraud was committed, and then he refused to take evidence of the criminal complaint is correct – you see his loyalties lie with the POWER ELITE – who bought and paid for his exclusive underhanded services. Branham gave to the Power Elite just enough info to go into the records and attempt to cover up the crimes committed, after they were reported to him in detail.

    But, the SGT had to do it, he had to cover up the crimes reported, under orders from the high ranks!

    I ask you what kind of Police officer is that?

    ROGUE! We need to get those fuckers the hell out of our state. Let them go fuck up Kentucky!

    John Manis Richards is more than a colorful character, and he has an interesting background, but somewhere in Johnny boys 40 year old life he straitened up, and had a kid and has a different view on things now.

    But, one thing for sure is JR sure had the cops pegged for what they are ROGUE ass little bitches!

    He sure was right years ago about the STATE POLICE!

    Were gonna be a comin for ya soon Johnny boy for you done been drafted by the CCC-Elkins. Wood county ain’t all that far away and we miss that strange sense of humor of yours. However, Crooked as fuck cops are no laughing matter.

    ***
    Also we are all in receipt of info that the HUR HERALD has NOT reported on ANY of the voter fraud, public records fraud, title fraud or any of the latest actions in Gilmer County. Why is that?

  • State Employee

    I work for the State and I have heard about all the illegal actions in Gilmer County, but I am almost afraid to comment on this page, for fear it is so closely monitored that I could be found out. I will just say that you have pushed some personal buttons now and this is what I have heard by hearing for myself and listening to others talk. Somebody in your group made fun of the staff or something and it caused a big commotion among the higher level officers and staff and some of those are temps.

    I think that they have tried not to assist in these concerns of yours for personal reasons. I think that is wrong. A crime is a crime. All I am saying is someone in your group has pissed some people off to the point you really got to them. I agree with some of your more finer points made, but you all might as well have targets painted on your backs.

    Editors note: Not that we check IP’s but looking at yours so close to mine, I get where you are coming from. Thanks for the heads up, but we rarely care about pissing people off we just want them to do their fucking jobs and earn those big pay checks they brag so much about. What a bunch of inept undereducated big shots. They sure like their social functions though don’t they, they all sure have a lot of time for that and holding hands with the governor. A lot of ass kissing where y’all are at. We don’t kiss ass, we kick ass! Tell them… well you know.

  • If they all weren’t such DICK WADS with long stick shoved up their asses then maybe they wouldn’t have to complain about being talked to like the pieces of shit they are. We call em like we see him and right now I am seeing brown and brown is the color of shit, therefore they are shit and therefore we have to talk shit to the shit because that is the only shit they can understand. So we talk in the brown language so the green shirts can properly understand all the four letter adjectives.

    Myself I like to use words whose main syntactic role is to qualify a noun or even a verb and then properly shove a modifier up the patoots of the nearest high ranking officer I can find that day, of course one who has the time to hear my personal complaint. Or I may remove the modifier as removal of the modifier typically doesn’t affect the grammaticality of the construction of my carefully worded sentence.

    Then, my closer is, “What the fuck is wrong with you dumb sons of a bitches! Just because someone holds a public office, that means they are above the law?”

    Usually the conversation has already come to a quit halt by then anyway, and they only hear my final F U while exiting stage left.

    And that is all I have to say about that!

  • Crooked County Crooks – Moss Reports on GILMER FREE PRESS

    The Concerned Citizens of Gilmer County appreciate Chief MOSS reporting accurate Data about the above case:

    – Re: Chief John Moss

    The Gilmer Free Press received a response from Chief John Moss regarding this case. Chief Moss verified that Mark Medley and Mary Ann Campbell asked for assistance in picking up the children in Brooklyn Drive. He informed them that the police do not get involved with civil matters like child custody. He then asked if they had a court order and they said they did not. Chief Moss advised the couple to obtain the proper paperwork from court and then a Deputy Sheriff could help them get the children. It was a few hours later that he heard about the shooting. Chief Moss stated that he did not agree with the jury, and that Mr. Campbell could have stopped at the State Police headquarters near the sight of the shooting to ask for assistance, but instead took the law into his own hands.

    GFP would like to thank Chief Moss for responding so promptly to inquiries regarding this case.

    • 1966stang

      I REALLY HATE TO SAY IT BUT IF THE SO CALLED CHIEF WOULD HAVE STEPPED UP AND UP HELD THE OATH HE HIMSELF TOOK IN BECOMING AN OFFICER HE COULD HAVE HELPED MARK AND MARY ANN ANYWAY. THEN MAYBE MARK WOULD STILL BE ALIVE AND MARY ANN WOULD HAVE HER CHILDREN WHERE THEY BELONG.

      Editors note: Have Mary Ann call her contact number, we have some questions we would like to ask her for a follow up article. It is important we get all the facts straight from the horses mouth so to speak.

  • Revenge of the GHOST WOLF

    R Terry Butcher and Timothy B Butcher are conspiring in an ILLEGAL way with West Virginia Attorney General Darrel McGraw!

    The Butchers are doing their best to have the have people behind SS Websites including this one and the Gilmer Free Press website shut down and people arrested and computers confiscated just like in a third world country!

    This is an attempt to keep the truth about the wrongdoing in the courthouse from being revealed and then published. It is also an attempt to deny free speech rights to investigative journalists, who are under constant threat of harm from the Powers that Be.

    The Gilmer Free Press has the Front Page Story on it this morning! Here is a comment!

    Recent Comments

    This is OUTRAGEOUS but McGraw is crooked too!

    I have to tell you and so are many of the asst attorney generals that knowingly bring false evidence to Supreme Court cases for their friends.

    The Butchers took control of the AJ Woofter estate against the wishes of the family and then did not even reply to several attorneys complaining of back dated checks, payments more than TWO YEARS late and missing funds from the cash account that were not answered.

    Thousands were spent in 4 years just to communicate with the Butchers, but no reply, then in December of 2006 they lied about receiving documents that Diana L Butcher signed for return receipt requested.

    $38,000 was taken from the estate for fee’s in a short time in 06. It was a conflict for them to have control of the estate since the executrix Rosa Belle Gainer-Cunningham was their employee.

    They are attempting to put an end to investigation into their wrongdoing by using powerful friends.

  • Is this what the news article will look like when Gerald B Hough is finally held accountable for his crimes and removed from his powerful position that he has abused, by letting criminals off the hook while prosecuting innocent people?

    A Gilmer County woman, Shelly Morris DeMarino (Democrat), has filed for prosecuting attorney in Gilmer County due to recent federal indictment of Gerald B Hough for fraud and conspiracy involving a Gilmer County Court case. DeMarino was recently the PA in Calhoun County and a former prosecuting attorney in Gilmer and assistant prosecuting attorney in Harrison County. DeMarino was the only candidate to file for the office of Gilmer County Prosecutor pending the outcome of the federal charges against Gerald B Hough.

    Crooked County Crooks-Rape at GSC EDWIN DALE KINNISON!
    September 3, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Speaking of rape…

    It has been almost a year since Edwin Dale Kinnison was arrested and charged, then the case went to circuit court and there has been no update.

    Most likely the school is going to cover up this rape as to not have any damage done to their image, which of course is more important than dealing with a problem of college campus rape.

    Gilmer County is self serving and has their priorities up their ass!

    • melissa

      Don’t think that Shelly Morris DeMarino will be any better than Hough. Everybody I talk to says that Shelly is as dumb as a box of bricks. If she could not get along with the state police in Calhoun County, what makes you think she can do any better in Gilmer County? If you think Gilmer is corrupt now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

      SS Member: I have a feeling you are correct, it is just that we have become so good @ predicting things it is just that-a prediction.

      Our chief counsel says we have to learn how to stay one or two steps ahead of them. Really now the power elite lead us right to corrupt members of our state senate and representatives. We say we should vote out all holding office currently in the next election including all state senators and reps. They have long time corrupt ties to the Butchers and right now we are hoping to reveal wrong doing from years and years ago. We are shocked the State Po lease are crooked as fuck, who the hell would have believed that? And now we have proof!

  • REVENGE OF THE GHOST WOLF WEBSITE-HOUGH MAKES THREATS TO GFP!!

    Hough threatened the GFP and associates tonight, here is the threat and the Speech he gave in public on the 7th:

    Here is the THREAT:

    Dear Editor of Gilmer Free Press:
    The attached news story does not contain libel, malicious attacks on citizens or created lies concocted to destroy the reputation(s) of anyone. Please tell the owner of this website that sponsoring libel, hate messages, and malicious attempts to smear a citizen puts the owner’s assets in jeopardy – useful for damage awards –

    This is the Speech:
    As President of the West Virginia Association of Counties, delivered unto a crowd of more than 350 elected county officials and several State Senators in Charleston the following message:

    “As great a development as the internet has been, the atmosphere of anonymous hatred and libelous smearing has targeted many elected officials.

    Even in my beloved county, ex-convicts and political enemies craft a steady flow of hatred to spew on the internet. The anonymous polling, multiple messaging from the same hidden sources amount to bullying on line. If your friends or family defend you, they are targeted and intimidated into silence. Such negative campaigning is striking at the foundations of our local government ; it is the quencher of free speech.

    I challenge us in local government, who serve on the front line of services, to resist hatred and open our dialogue to all viewpoints –

    Congressman Gabriel Giffords took her CONGRESS TO THE CORNER in Tucson, Arizona. She opened access for the people, by the people, and of the people. The point blank shooting of innocent people is the ultimate bullying; it is no different than the bullying I mentioned earlier, because the attempt is to silence our freedoms by abusing another freedom. Despite the 13 Arizona wounded and the six dead, including a little girl (!), that bully did not and will not stop this government of and by the people… so long as we permit dissent, agree to disagree- and, when possible, come to mutual solutions, founded by respect for our diversity.

    Thank you for listening today, may God bless your service to the people!”

  • Wonderer

    Well I guess someone finally hit a nerve. Although when his kids were battling for him online I never saw a word in print from the big man defending them. They took their battle on themselves and for that I give them credit.
    Hough has told everyone that he didn’t even read the Free Press, that it meant nothing.
    That is nothing until he could feel it hitting him in the old political pocket book! When people started posting that he couldn’t try a case in a paper bag, etc. When people started saying maybe they didn’t like the way key cases have gone. Then the lights came on that maybe, just maybe, he wouldn’t be a shoe-in for the next election.
    What a disgrace! To use his constitutional office to threaten anyone with taking their assets. Isn’t there an ongoing legal battle about that?
    I just have one question for the Prosecutor: Did you use your government computer to write this personal tirade?

    Editors note: This is the beginning of the end of Gerald B Hough, if he is not gone in 14 days then there will be immediate action taken against the County Commission and it won’t be nothing nice and we will take every fucking dime they have.

  • Crooked County Crooks/Consolidated Citizens Corp-Elkins

    Hough is the criminal!

    Gerry knowingly tampered with evidence after being tipped off by the State Police, after they were briefed about public records fraud.

    It can be proven he is guilty of subornation of perjury and several other criminal acts including conspiracy.

    Another federal criminal complaint was filed against him recently.

    CORRUPTION IS RUNNING RAMPANT IN WV.

    Gerry Hough is the President of the Counties Association a self serving political entity whose sole purpose is to get more benefits and higher pay for elected public officials. It serves no purpose for the people at all.

    GERALD B HOUGH WE HEREBY ASK YOU TO RESIGN, IF YOU DO NOT WE WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BRING NEW CHARGES FORWARD AND HAVE YOU ARRESTED AND IF THE STATE POLICE REFUSE WE WILL BRING SOME PEOPLE IN THAT WILL DO THE JOB FOR THEM AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

    WE ARE ASKING YOU NICELY TO LEAVE!

    PLEASE DO SO!

    I AM ONLY GOING TO ASK NICELY ONCE!

    Resign your position or face arrest!!

    Gerry Hough has run unopposed for two elections! He was NEVER elected by the people and for the people

    “Libelous smearing has targeted many elected officials,” is a complete and utter laughable concept when proof is given that you Gerald B Hough conspired to bring false evidence and that you were involved in a conspiracy to bring false testimony.

    Your actions Gerry Hough have proved to be unlawful and we proved it in front of thousands of people.

    Your guilt was revealed by an article that got over 40,000 hits in just a couple of days.

    Obviously people were interested!

    The people have spoken, and you didn’t listen and now we want you gone Mr. Hough.

    Telling the truth is not bullying on line!

    False arrest is NOT FORGIVABLE and you have been caught. YOU ARE THE BULLY and you make people pay with their jobs, their careers, their spouses and every cent they ever earned their entire life.

    YOU Mr. Hough are a NIGHTMARE!

    We prefer to believe in the American Dream!

  • If I understand your meaning, you are threatening to sue an avenue of the public domain for the opinions expressed by the Citizens of Gilmer County unless they shut up. Are you planning to do this in your official capacity or would this be a private suit? Will you be using county funds, your county office, county phone, county computer, county staff, perhaps a county vehicle and county office equipment and supplies? All have been paid for by the very taxpayers you have ignored and are now attempting to bully into submission. Perhaps some of these things have already been used to send this shameless self promotion of an email? No one is impressed that you went before your peers in the name of Gilmer County and whined. Do you think it is beneath you to respond to the concerns of the people that pay your salary? Or should that only happen behind closed doors?

    Wow. How crazy can you get? Does Mr. Hough think all the people should just shut up and sit back and take all the illegal stupid things that he does and does not do with a grain of salt?
    He is being paid BIG bucks to do nothing and what little he does do, is wrong.
    Where does COMMON SENSE come in here?
    Now he is threating to shut down Gilmer Free Press because the people of Gilmer County are tired of him, his wrong doings and want him gone to where he belongs.
    We do have rights Mr. Hough and that is freedom of speech over which you cannot control.
    I think the GFP should do a poll and see how many people want to be able to express their thoughts and feelings anonymously or how many people feel as you do and that we do not have freedom of speech when it comes to voicing our opinions as to where you messed up big time.
    Our County deserves better than this.
    I’m willing to listen to your explanations of these charges and accusations made against you and I am sure the Gilmer Free Press would print it for all of us to read.

Why don’t you Gerry. But he decided to take the wrong route as he has always done. As one comment stated Hough, you need to step down immediately. Gilmer County commissioners Davis Hess, Brian Kennedy, and Darrell Ramsey MUST NOT tolerate this behavior. Gilmer County Sheriff Mickey Metz MUST NOT tolerate this behavior. The WV State Police MUST NOT tolerate this behavior. ALL OF YOU KNOW ALL of HIS CORRUPTIONs and can NO LONER IGNOR IT. The Power Elite(the Descent One) MUST NOT tolerate this behavior.

    If this speech was any indication of your intelligence, then it is no wonder you have screwed up so many cases.
    What you are suggesting is seriously close to censorship, and that must surely go against the fundamental values the country is based upon.
    You can express your opinion, but don’t use your position to threat.

    The truth is always a valid defense against charges of libel or slander. Furthermore, the owner of a forum cannot be held responsible for what contributors publish unless it can be proved that they knew the published account was false. If a malicious suit is filed, the defendant can recover attorney fees as well as damages. Don’t let bullies scare you into not reporting the truth.

  • This is my first comments on Gilmer free Press, but I too am fed up with this man and our county officials.

    Add this to Gerry Hough’s criminal actions as I was there and witnessed this:
    At the canvassing of the votes in May 2010, when question was asked from our top lawman of Gilmer county, Hough, since he had no clue, going through pages in his book for answer, looked up and asked if the Commissioners and attorneys meet with him behind closed doors. Right in a public meeting. Commissioners Hess, Kennedy, head by Larry Chapman made the motion to do it and so they did. Let’s make deals behind closed doors began. Why could he not answer the question in the public meeting as they were supposed to? This is how it is done in Gilmer county. a clear violation of law. Mr. Hough and Commissioners why don’t you tell us we don’t know what we are talking about.

    Please Mickey Metz,
    We are asking you to do something about a public official who is out of control and ruins lives by bringing false evidence so outrageous as to be unbelievable, but then lies to everyone including judges to get away with it!
    Bearing false witness is a sin, but Gerry pays people to do it, and that is nothing short of evil.
    Then Gerry says he is going to PRAY for everyone.
    What a hypocrite!
    We can no longer suffer because of a self-serving selfish individual that uses his family members for defense, when they have nothing to do with any dispute.
    Please Mickey do something, we are not asking you just as the Sheriff, but as a friend, a friend we can all trust. We need you!
    Please hold Gerry Hough accountable for his illegal actions!
    Please do what is right for the community and allow Gerry Hough to face his own wrongdoing in court.

    The 70’s brought a wave of sex/drug crazed hippies to Gilmer. Most left. But we who were here first remember who you old hippies are. Mr. Hough you are not from around here, are you? Could Mr. Hough honestly swear under oath that ‘pot’ & drugs were not a big part of his early life in Gilmer? One has to wonder how anyone could in good conscience, bring charges against someone who has done the very same thing that they themselves have been guilty of? But then there is that old saying, ‘takes on to catch one’. Yes, we remember all the hippies that have grown old here. And we will not forget. Skeleton bones in the closet are starting to rattle. GC needs to keep shaking them.

    Documents sent by the highest ranks of the SP along with a phone conversation featuring Major Ingold of the Police Standards Division clearly shows a conspiracy between Police and the Power Elite involving a cover up of the crimes at the courthouse and crimes by Hough.
    Ingold knows the FEDS have been informed with a full written report and complaints of wrongdoing.
    The State Police want to put the burden on another agency!
    The tape of Ingold clearly shows that Police know crimes were committed, but are not going to act!
    Ingold said,
    “I understand you filed with the US Attorney MR (censored) then we will wait and see what they instruct us to do, it is as simple as that so we really don’t need to hear from you anymore!“
    State Police should never wait on instruction when a complaint was filed against them for being involved in a conspiracy to commit a crime.
    I am in support of a Governor that will do away with the State Police and regulate their duties to the HWY Patrol.

  • LIZZIE BUTCHER LOST VIRGINITY at 13 according to TOPIX comment

    Lost Virginity at 13

    Wednesday Feb 9

    Well considering Lizzie lost her virginity at age 13, I would probably say it is at least 50 guys she has been with by now, probably the same for Lexie. They are likable enough girls to be friends with, but I think a man would either have to be totally naive about these girls past or just not care they have slept with tons of guys to want to have a serious relationship or marry either of them. They are good for a shag, but how could you trust them to have a relationship with them? So wild those girls are.

  • Crooked County Crooks Website-NO FEAR-Fighting for FREEDOM from totalitarian rule in Central WV since June of 2006

    There seems to be actual confirmation from the Council of Concerned Citizens and some contributing SS journalists that have brought a great deal of truth forward involving criminal activity among Gilmer Public Officials that the Butchers-of the Butcher & Butcher law firm-are calling every one they know, Oliverio, Boggs and Facemire, while speaking with other attorneys they went to school with – along with Hough and the State Police – who are also trying to find any charge that will stick to shut down the sites or shut people up.

    This worked for the evil regime in Egypt and it works in Russia, and it has worked before in Gilmer County and we just saw an example of that last summer!

    Now that someone brought out the subject of Hunter Armentrout and the hidden files involving land fraud schemes and a load of non-transferable land records he maintained for various reasons- more criminal acts may be revealed involving the famous Butchers who make their own rules. Some of those land records dated back decades- often due to various problems with the documents that prohibited transfer involving some kind of hanky panky made famous in a County where it is “OK” to break the law if you are a public official. The police will refuse to take the complaint and then figure out a way to arrest the whistle blower and destroy the journalist who accurately reported the criminal activity.

    And then, Judge Facemire can call down to the jail and have that same person thrown in the hole with no phone privileges like he did to a well known community leader, and Commander of Company C Consolidated Citizens Corp-Elkins back in 2008!

    Thats right Facemire has some connects and we know who they are, and we have not forgotten for one fucking second.

  • I remember that summer

    I was there that summer and remember the subsequent trial in 2007. Finally someone is speaking up about it! They murdered that poor man, and just think of how his family felt when they did nothing about the murder. Gilmer County is about as Crooked as they come. I could not wait to get out of Glenville later that year!

    Editors note: You got that right!

  • question

    If Everette Campbell was a convicted felon, what was he doing carrying a gun and using a 357 to kill an innocent man?

    Editors note: The answer is Gilmer County is called CROOKED COUNTY for a very important reason. Campbell was a snitch to catch meth dealers, but he never paid off in that area, just like Todd Smith. These idiots that are disguised as people that think they are, “all that,” in law enforcement play by their own rules and Campbell was ALLOWED to commit cold blooded murder, and that is your answer to your question.

    Many other law enforcement agencies look down upon Gilmer County for this very incident and again Dave Karickoff was the defense attorney and Hough was no match for him or any other good defense counsel in a court room.

    Unfortunately for us David Karickoff is a Butcher and Butcher associate and has been for his entire career, but hides it rather well. Karickoff is no dummy.

  • Amanda. Franklin

    I’ve always been curious to why Mel Waddell got away with two murders and how

    SS Member : Waddell ain’t the meanest one in hell here, that’s for sure, you found yourself a pack a murderous ravenous thieves, ask Fred Hill, of who you know they did kill! Some SS members are related to Stumps, not closely, but roots from the 50′ and 60’s but still somewhat kindred, and ya know why I brought the stumps up if you know about Mel Waddell, and the journey that was hell in the past that many thought buried but not by the SS. We live by the feud, we never forget.

By Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor for Revenge of the Ghost Wolf

For YEARS the Central West Virginia Council of Concerned Citizens have been trying to bring national attention to Gilmer County for their MAKE THEIR OWN RULES POLICY.  Finally national attention does shine the spotlight down on Gilmer County for misconduct and it took a couple of girlie girls to do it.

Andrew Butcher APPOINTED to the position of Circuit Clerk – JUDGE ALSOP looking on who recently endorsed the Willard Cottrill LAND FRAUD SCHEME where a convicted felon sold 38 acres of the estate to the Goatman for 25,000 and a 1968 Camaro.

Jean Butcher is as far as I know is NO RELATION to the infamous BUTCHER BITCHES, but the new circuit clerk is.  Old Andrew who I believe was arrested when the ATF raided the MAIN EVENT SPORTS BAR years ago.  Andrew Butcher, being  appointed to the CIRCUIT CLERK public office by Judge Facemire is more or less a slap in the face to us journalists that have covered the corruption in GILMER  COUNTY WEST VIRGINIA  for over a decade.  During the BUST at the MAIN EVENT owned by a couple that are well known with the POWER ELITE in GLENVILLE, Tim Butcher was heard to say, “I am the LAW around here,”  OH YES I remember it well for I covered the story for the very popular CalPatty Press. ANDREW BUTCHER the son of former city attorney and BOG at GSC TIM BUTCHER, is also a first cousin to LIZ and LEXI BUTCHER who are famous for their wit, beauty and “Lets Party,” attitude.  To be honest, it just is not as fun around here now without the Butcher Bitches for they are one of a kind, and not one person that ever knew them could not say they were not fun, for saying they were the life of the party would be an understatement.  I just loved that Lizzy because she was FUNNY as hell, and fricking smart too. But alas, all the hotties get married off in Central WV, darn, sure miss those Butcher Bitches and frankly being their first cousin is the only thing cool about the new Circuit Court Clerk Andrew Butcher.

Now back to the Girlie Girls that had a BAD EXPERIENCE with JEAN BUTCHER the COUNTY COMMISSION CLERK… 

During the first week of February in 2016 Samantha Brookover stood crying in Glenville’s Gilmer County Courthouse . She was humiliated on what was meant to be a happy moment in her life.

Amanda Abramovich, the partner of Samantha Brookover wanted a marriage license. They got one, along with an earful from a deputy clerk in the office, who told them that their relationship is wrong and that God will judge them that early February day well over a year ago — and because of the CHURCH of IKE and his buying the fuck out of the mainstream media, there was very little reporting on the matter, but the GAZETTE in Charleston did report on the matter, which is really a bit of a miracle for they ignore the bejesus out of Gilmer County no matter if it was a murder or a RAPE which is more common than you know in a place known as CROOKED COUNTY.

Brookover and Abramovich(in photo below) were told right to their pretty feminine faces that they were “an abomination!” DEBBIE ALLEN a deputy clerk was getting the image in her mind of getting her pussy eaten by these girls most likely, so she screamed at them, treated them like shit while being deputy clerk of a public office where her dick and that of Jean Butcher were the only ones allowed to swagger about and slap their dicks on faces earning her the right to be called just another dumb bitch down in CROOKED COUNTY.

***

“It just takes one person to remind you how closed-minded our world is,” Brookover said at the time she was interviewed in 2016.

Debbie Allen, the deputy clerk who processed their marriage license, and another deputy clerk who was there, Angela Moore, disputed some of the allegations from the couple.

ALLEN allegedly SCREAMED the word ABOMINATION, but then she could have been thinking about JUDGE FACEMIRE 14th district circuit court judge for he certainly fits the description there.

“I was working on what I was supposed to be doing and, honestly, I didn’t care to make eye contact with them,” Angela an employee in the Clerks office later stated.

ALLEN SCREAMED at the two pretty women saying that what they were doing was wrong and that they would be judged!!

The two Lesbian women took offense and were aghast as Debbie Allen accepted their driver’s licenses, made copies, slammed down the copies and then, for two to three minutes, yelled that what they were doing was wrong in her eyes and in God’s eyes and that no one in Gilmer County would ever marry them. 

The couple had brought family members. They had the camera ready. It was supposed to be a happy day. IT WAS NOT A HAPPY DAY!

 Those two young women LAWYERED UP and they did not call Saul Goodman they got some big deal attorney’ or a FEW big deal lawyers to take their case and they SUED THE FUCK out of Gilmer County, West Virginia!!

http://au.org/files/2017-04-17%20Complaint.pdf

Filed in federal Court (April 17th 2017) in West Virginia’s Northern District by Amanda Abramovich and Samantha Brookover the lawsuit details the couple’s interaction with Debbie Allen.

Click link above to see these CROOKS from CROOKED COUNTY listed as defendants.

GILMER COUNTY, DEBBIE ALLEN, both individually and in her official capacity as Gilmer County Deputy Clerk, and JEAN BUTCHER, both individually and in her official capacity as Gilmer County Clerk, Defendants.

The law action claims the couple was denied a happy experience while applying for a marriage license and that their constitutional rights were violated when Allen singled them out.

Butcher, when told about Allen’s alleged behavior, said her employee had done nothing wrong and that the women deserved the treatment they received, according to the lawsuit.

Gilmer County officials could not be reached for comment late Monday,or ever because what are they gonna do…deny that they are unlawful assholes…?

That about a dumb bitch Jean Butcher said she told Brookover’s mother by phone that her views were similar to Allen’s. She said the women were issued the license, and “that was the main thing.”

The couple visited the Gilmer clerk’s office on Feb. 3, 2016 — seven months after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states can’t deprive same-sex couples of the right to marry.

Lizzy Butcher with Butcher Bitches Buddy WAY AHEAD of her time and getting with the same sex feel (a photo taken years ago,) a sort of harbinger of what was to come in the Gilmer County Courthouse many years in the future… and SO IT GOES!!!

GILMER COUNTY is a place that’s known for its corruption and bending and breaking of ALL LAWS and RULES! It does not matter if it is state and federal for down in Crooked County they only want to know what IKE thinks about it… and that is it… well what the fuck do you think IKE is it OK if foo foo girls want to do the wango tango in your town or would they have to give you a private show first? Wait, don’t answer that, I know the answer.

Finally big media outlets all over the nation are reporting on this story — one year and a half later this is what the Washington Post had to say…

The Gilmer County clerk’s office is paying Abramovich and Brookover, who have been together for seven years, $10,000 in damages and issuing them an apology, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

When the couple requested a marriage license they expected an eye roll or another small sign of disapproval from the clerk’s office in the largely conservative county – 75 percent of the residents voted for President Donald Trump – but they didn’t expect the “tirade of harassment and disparagement” they received, according to the complaint.

Deputy Clerk Debbie Allen slammed the paperwork on the desk, said she was a Christian and called the couple an “abomination” in a rant that continued for several minutes, according to court documents. Another clerk joined in, shouting that it was Allen’s “religious right” to harass the couple, according to the complaint.

The Supreme Court had ruled seven months earlier that the Constitution gives same-sex couples the right to wed, no matter where in America they live.

Abramovich remained silent throughout the abuse. Brookover cried.

They received their marriage license, but it was not the joyous day the women or their family members, who came with a camera, had hoped for.

When Brookover’s mother later called the county clerk’s office to report the encounter, she said County Clerk Jean Butcher told her she knew about the interaction and believed the couple deserved the treatment they received. The next same-sex couple that sought a marriage license, she allegedly said, “would get the same or worse” treatment.

A week after later, Allen told the Charleston Gazette-Mail that she didn’t call the couple an “abomination.” In fact, Allen said, “I felt I talked nicely to them.”

She did acknowledge that she told the couple what they were doing was wrong and God would judge them, according to the Gazette-Mail.

“I just told them my opinion,” she said. “I just felt led to do that. I believe God was standing with me and that’s just my religious belief.”

But in a news release on Aug. 30, Gilmer County seemed to do an about-face. The county acknowledged that Brookover and Abramovich “were disrespected and disparaged by staff” because they were a same-sex couple.

“That was wrong,” the news release stated. “It is the policy of Gilmer County and the Gilmer County Clerk’s Office that all people seeking services and doing business with the County will be treated courteously and with respect regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The lawsuit, which was filed by Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Fairness West Virginia and the law firm Mayer Brown, sought damages for the emotional distress caused by Allen’s actions.

In addition to paying the couple $10,000, the county also agreed to require all officials and employees of the county commission and county clerk’s office to participate in a training program provided by Fairness West Virginia, an advocacy organization dedicated to the fair and equal treatment of LGBT West Virginians.

“Consenting adults should never be made to feel embarrassed or ashamed when marrying the person they love,” the women said in a statement. “It will be a comfort to know that this behavior will no longer be allowed in the Gilmer County Courthouse.”

But, the people of Central West Virginia truly know it is only a matter of hours or days before GILMER COUNTY PUBLIC OFFICIALS  are back to committing more misconduct and making their  own rules all over again, and SO IT GOES...

By Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor for Revenge of the Ghost Wolf

Boy oh Boy!! I sure do miss those Butcher Bitches!! It has been more than seven years now since the original CalPatty Press went down in flames reporting on the Butcher Bitches with ALL the FABULOUS PHOTOS!!! Of course our little group of journalists from back then, many are absent from now, because of higher callings and greener pastures.  I sure do miss Freebird for she had some great titles, for I would have preferred the Butcher Bitches get top billing, in this particular article,  but  knowing Freebird the way I do, she would have quickly straightened me out with her quick whips and she would have said something like,

Oh those Baby Slut Butcher Bitches are not worth first billing and why do you insist on putting them in every fucking article anyway?!”

Hurricane Rina McCoy could strike like a tornado when exposing corruption in Crooked County! I sure wish that familiar face was still around. AHHH the GOOD OLD DAYS!!!

But, we do regularly remind people of some of the biggest moments in Crooked County history, however the real strength of Revenge of the Ghost Wolf is with presenting NEWER information, or some secret shit about an important subject matter that everybody is interested in.

The POWER ELITE and the people that reside back at the FRIGHT NIGHT of a college on the hill still rule.  It is a pathetic situation when corruption still reigns like a BIG DOG in a rural West Virginia town KNOWN for being a place where a person could easily get away with crimes like murder and rape. Unresolved deaths, countless rapes, are a matter of history in Gilmer County widely known as Crooked County down by the Crooked River, HOME of the Crooked County Crooks!  

But yet the local print media says little about it. For, truly would even YOU bite the hands that feed you? I sure don’t, I am known for acting up a bit, but I would never bite the hand that feeds me.  In fact, I am trying to make that entity happy with the arrangement to be frank about it.

Ruth Mitchell who can now live in her home rent free for the rest of her life thanks to the SUPREME COURT decision of 4 to 1 — Dan Bingman from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio whose family also has 155 acre farm off Middle Run Road in Crooked County — and also DAVE from the EPA in Wirt County where the Bingman family have a large farm over looking the Crooked River.

In 2013 four years ago marked a NEW ERA of crime and corruption which started to take place in Gilmer County. The GOATMAN just moved in during the fall of 2013 and CRIME BEGAN in LINN WV. The kind of situation where CRIMINALS like the Goatman — and the LAW represented for the most part by Sheriff Gerwig, backed by a few elite State Police — worked together for their greater interest — like the day they RAIDED the HOME of RUTH MITCHELL in Linn West Virginia.  

WOW, did that situation turn out to be a huge BLUNDER by the Gilmer County Sheriff and 31 days later they were made to look the fools by the EPA who more or less said, the entire debacle by Gilmer County Authorities was just a bunch of MADE UP BULLSHIT which is what the Gilmer County Sheriffs Office has been known for, for years going back to 2003 with the, “Travesty of Justice case over 30 year old farm equipment that they LIED ABOUT and tried to present as brand new!!  SHERIFF GERWIG was there, and we can publish the court record of that testimony of Gerwig, for that reveals the REAL TRUTH about that Son of a Bitch.  A Court Record is just that, it does not lie, it tells the truth about the liars and what they really said in court that was proved to be ALL BULLSHIT as in the case of Sheriff Gerwig who was Chief Deputy under Sheriff Metz way back then.

THE GOATMAN aka Richard Neal now of Linn WV was in Cahoots all along with Sheriff Gerwig to try to steal the home of Ruth Mitchell away… for personal gain!!

Immediately below find the criminal record of the GOATMAN from Lewis County, but notice no CRIMES record yet in GILMER COUNTY because in GILMER COUNTY the CROOKED COUNTY CROOKS are BOTH THE CORRUPT COPS and the Criminals together that form an ALLIANCE down by the Crooked River, which in CROOKED COUNTY is the HOME of the CROOKED COUNTY CROOKS!!

Sheriff Larry Gerwig, the elected Sheriff of Gilmer County, who was Chief Deputy under the controversial Sheriff Mickey Metz – Ole Larry is famous for saying,

“…But I wasnt’ here then,” which is TOTAL BULLSHIT for he was there then either as Chief Deputy, or the actual Sheriff. Also Sheriff Gerwig likes JELLY DONUTS with his breakfast of corruption and misconduct.

GILMER FREE PRESS REPORTS the REAL TRUTH on the POLICE RAID in LINN WV Wednesday February 11th as they present….

Cops Cops Tramps and Thieves, INVADE the Linn WV HOME of Ruth Mitchell!!

The Cottrill Estate Debacle has been in the news both in print media and on the pages of the voice of the people, the Gilmer Free Press, for years now in Central West Virginia. Many people are familiar with the ongoing court battles. A MAJOR battle was WON by Ruth Mitchell, the live in companion to Willard Cottrill on 18 October 2013 in the West Virginia Supreme Court by a vote of 4 to 1.

In the ruling Ruth Mitchell is allowed to live in her home that she lived in with Willard Cottrill rent free for as long as she shall choose to live there, but the exact wording from the West Virginia Supreme Court is even more specific.

Given all of this information it may come as no surprise that the home of Ruth Mitchell was raided by the appearance of no less than NINE PATROL cars, both from the State Police and the Gilmer County Sheriff’s office on Wednesday 11 February 2015!!

Was this an attempt for the executor Mike Murphy and Venita Cottrill to circumvent that 4 to 1 Supreme Court Ruling and take the law into their own hands?

Does the raid of nine patrol cars resulting in RUTH MITCHELL being removed from her home a direct result of the fact that Ruth Mitchell recently filed a complaint of murder against Venita Cottrill and Freda Cottrill? Are the raid and threats and removal from her home a way to SHUT RUTH MITCHELL UP about being an EYE WITNESS to murder?

NOW INFORMATION GATHERED BY THE SECRET SEVEN COALITION PROVES THAT THE GOATMAN CONSPIRED WITH SHERIFF GERWIG TO HAVE RUTH MITCHELL REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE IN A HIGHLY ILLEGAL MANNER.

Dan Bingman from his home in Ohio whose family owns a 155 acre farm in Gilmer County and 365 acre farm in Wirt County, arrange for the EPA to go on to the property and do their tests, and then, PROVE LARRY GERWIG and the GOATMAN a LIAR. Dave from the Wirt County EPA in Elizabeth West Virginia, stated,

“I know Dan Bingman personally and he is a fine individual and I know the entire Bingman family that he belongs to in Wirt county and they are upstanding citizens, so when Dan told me the Sheriff was a liar, and so were the state police in this case I believed him.  I inspected the property and found no contaminants and no toxic substances on the property so what he told me ended up being true and what the law enforcement authorities said turned out to be completely and totally UNTRUE!”

The President of the Council of Concerned Citizens for Central West Virginia, Dan Bingman who is also a member and a leader in the local Secret Seven organization, stated that,

“The Meth Lab everybody is looking for is allegedly run by the Goatman at the secluded cabin up on the hill that he purchased via the questionable land sale endorsed by that son of a bitch of a judge, Judge Alsop…”

“Further, I believe Sheriff Gerwig, and Deputy Wheeler know about it and are letting it all happen,  and why do you think they would do something like that? Is it because EVIL runs right down that Crooked County line?”

COWBOY CASEY JONES GILMER COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTY

COWBOY CASEY JONES Gilmer County Deputy Sheriff with elected Sheriff Gerwig who was former Chief Deputy under Mickey Metz…

Casey Jones, who I can say I have been acquainted with in the past and even did not tell on him for drinking on the job back in 2004 held Ruth Mitchell at gunpoint and had her illegally removed from her home. That is some underhanded BULLSHIT and he should have been charged with a crime, but he successfully had her removed until Dan Bingman and the EPA got to the bottom of the real facts, and she was allowed to return to her home and live RENT FREE for the rest of her life. 

The Infamous Butcher Bitches…

Elizabeth Butcher, one half of the Butch Bitches, my favorite of the two, for she is quite a character and everyone has gotten the wrong opinion, believing I did not like her that is why we posted all those photos on the CalPatty Press years ago, BUT au contraire, I not only like LIZ Butcher the other half of Liz and Lexie, but, I LOVE HER!! She is so f*cking cute for one thing, she is smart as a whip even until this day and does not remember when she met me way back about 13 years ago, but I am not one to KISS and TELL that is for sure, but I have loved that girl ever since, so there is that…

Oh how we love LIZZIE and LEXIE BUTCHER the more than famous Butcher Bitches lets review with photos, for the captions explain the history of these two beautiful and fabulous girls from Gilmer County, West Virginia….  I love them both!!

Liz and Lexie Butcher the infamous BUTCHER BITCHES DRUNK and having fun. Please don’t misunderstand me, I like Lexie too, for she is so sexy and damn I have seen those titties up close and in person exposed and I will tell you what … BUDDY… COWABUNGA she is built like a god damn brick sh*t house… but, if I were to have my choice I am still in love with LIZZY for just thinking about her makes me DIZZY, Oh that Lizzy she is really something and funny as hell too!! Good looking, funny, smart, and the STAR of the BUTCHER BITCHES BREAK BAD BOX BANGING videos which are quite popular in Central WV.

This month completes our 7th year of REVENGE OF THE GHOST WOLF and in September we start our 8th year of reporting the truth in Central West Virginia.

The Ghost Wolf of Gilmer County really does exist, and get this, people are still reporting seeing me and the Ghost Wolf walking the hills of Gilmer County like some bizarre BI-LOCATION encounter, for the Ghost Wolf, the REAL GHOST WOLF was killed in action April 19th 2009, just one month after the BOOK, Revenge of the Ghost Wolf was published and started recording sales on Amazon.com and Borders Books.

Revenge of the Ghost Wolf and the West Virginia Secret Seven that includes award winning investigative reporter Lawrence J Smith are hungry like a WOLF to expose corruption in Central WV, so until next time please enjoy this contribution to exposing the truth in Gilmer County, West Virginia.

Alex Vincent Golosow may have taken important information to his grave regarding Christian Dawn Starcher Seabolt. At one time he wanted to speak with her father about some secrets he knew but the dead girls father could not bring himself to speak with the man also known as TATOO VINCE.

This is a mugshot photo of a man known as TATOO VINCE who always denied being responsible for the Spencer woman Christian Dawn Seabolt who was only 18 years old at the time of her disappearance;. He did claim to have information on the young womans death, but he never got to talk to the father of the dead girl before he passes away in prison.

Seven years ago authorities went to a remote area known as Groundhog Ridge to examine some remains, discovered about 25 feet from a rural road. The remains were sent to the Smithsonian for forensic examination, during which they determined a positive identity of Christian Dawn Starcher Seabolt.

Golosow was 56 when he died according to official reports he died shortly after 8 a.m. on May 12 at the Mount Olive Correctional Center.  The probable cause of death was listed as heart disease, however his medical records also reflected the fact he was also suffering from Cancer.

Rumors have linked Golosow aka TATOO VINCE with the death of Christian Dawn Starcher Seabolt, who was 18 when she disappeared in 2002. She left her mother’s apartment in downtown Spencer one evening to get a pack of cigarettes and NEVER returned.

State Police in Spencer indicated to Spencer Newspapers they have no new leads on who murdered the woman, but the Spencer newspaper is a lot like the lying ass Glenville Democrap and Pathfinder of Bullshit ran by Dave, “CORKY” Corcoran, whose paper survives on county commission money from placing legal ads, otherwise could never sell enough advertising to support the rinky dink slink link of a poor excuse for print media.

The 18 yr old girl left her mother’s apartment in Spencer to get a pack of cigarettes on August 31, 2002, but what was not said was that Dawn Starcher Seabolt had information on bad cops and local drug dealing. Anybody that was around in those days and knew the girl would tell you the same story.

This story is about complacency and people not wanting to get involved for the reason the matter stinks of police corruption. If you don’t believe those allegations, I would invite you to go talk to her friends who have long since had their ten year high school reunion. Privately they will tell you the young girl had information about a bad cop.

Seabolt was an acquaintance of “Tattoo Vince” Golosow, a Tariff, Roane County man, who was serving a life sentence for killing Michael Judson Reid, 52.

“Tattoo Vince” was connected to a number of individuals who resided in Roane, Wirt and Clay counties, but quite frankly had nothing to do with the murder of the girl. “Vince” will tell you himself, why kill one of the few bang-able chicks in the area. The word is from people in the area was that they were on friendly terms.

Therefore, any savvy investigator knows “Tattoo Vince” in this case is just a patsy, and that false story that he was responsible for the girls murder was disinformation released by the local cops, and by the person that was actually guilty of murdering the girl.

This was the ROANE COUNTY version of the murder of FRED HILL 7 years in advance.

“Tatto Vince” Golosow , said Seabolt was a nice girl. He did admit Seabolt used to come around his house.

Sometime after Seabolt went missing, Judd Reid, a friend of hers and Golosow, was murdered.

Golosow was convicted of Reid’s murder in 2004. Golosow, who claims he’s innocent of Reid’s murder, is also considered a person of interest in Seabolt’s case by law enforcement officials.

Moe Starcher the father of the murdered girl thinks his daughter was murdered for attempting to report police corruption. He points to rumors of drug-related law enforcement corruption in the area. His daughter’s claims did not sit well within the law enforcement community, Starcher said.

“What I was told before she came up missing and what I believe to this day:”

“There were some dirty cops in Clay and Roane County. It is well known by many.”

Christian Dawn Seabolt as she looked just before her disappearance in Spencer during the late summer of 2002.

Starcher claims a 911 call was made the day Seabolt disappeared. Officials said the 911 call to which Starcher refers was not made by his daughter.

Officials are working with Starcher to allow him to listen to the recording. Starcher believes the recording the state police will  provide is not the call his daughter made, and that they are covering for dirty county cops the same exact way they have been documented of doing so for corrupt law enforcement in Gilmer County.

“I was told by a state police officer that there is a phone call and it was my daughter and now it doesn’t exist. Where does that leave me?”

The State Police are obviously corrupt too!

“I think when (Golosow) said I was on the right track, referring to police corruption, he’s right on that,” Moe Starcher the father of Christian Dawn Starcher Seabolt said.

Starcher referred to a fictional crime novel, “Murder Mountain” written by Ohio police officer, Stacy Dittrich. The fictional novel is based on drug-related events in Clay and Roane counties.

Christian Dawn Seabolt never even got to see twenty years go by in her young life and maybe the Murder Mountain book will reveal what really happened. Known as “Murder Mountain” to the local common folk, but heard told the real criminals in Central West Virginia call it SUGAR MOUNTAIN…

 

Dave Cacamamie and his GLENVILLE DEMO-CRAP local print media staff have been kissing the ass of the Gilmer County POWER ELITE for years!!! It is sickening to watch and worse to read!! Glenville Democrat NOW AVAILABLE in a convenient SPRAY CAN! 
COMING SOON on REVENGE of the Ghost Wolf a scary as HELL PHOTO of Richard DICK FACEMIRE Circuit Court Judge, swearing in Andrew Butcher as Circuit Court Clerk of Gilmer County…. and I have to wonder is that the same BUTCHER BOY that got arrested during the raid of the MAIN EVENT by the ATF, for don’t you think it is time we brought that little piece of history out to look at again… tell your friends that the Difference between GOOD and EVIL runs right down that Crooked County Line and we will be running it all down the line soon on RGW!!!

By Editor Edison CalPatty Press Editor for Revenge of the Ghost Wolf

A Judge Shall Uphold And Promote The Independence, Integrity, And Impartiality Of The Judiciary, And Shall Avoid Impropriety And The Appearance Of Impropriety.

Judges in local, state and federal courts across the country routinely hide their connections to litigants and their lawyers. In Crooked County Judicial Integrity is something that can be laughed about with too many incidents to have time to explain.

Judge Facemire during the “Travesty of Justice,” Case brought up a social link saying one of the witnesses Shirley Ball was a friend of his. Later it was determined she gave false testimony so some friend of the court she turned out to be —- And if you search this website you will find her mug shot for being arrested for assault of a police officer or some other related infraction in Calhoun County. In some instances mutual investment interests may exist as is often the case in Central West Virginia, and if not that, then certainly some other situation of mutual interest and benefit.  A JUDGE might be an in-law or cousin of somebody that is somehow involved or has an interest in a certain court case and outcome.  Occasionally that LOVE AFFAIR between a judge and an involved party are literally in bed together. A perception of bias does occur when INTEGRITY is tested and RULES ARE BROKEN as they often are in CROOKED COUNTY down by the Crooked River which is HOME to the CROOKED COUNTY CROOKS!!

A  judge is duty-bound to at the very least disclose any descrepancy that may occur in a court case that would lead one to believe the appearance of impropriety is in jeopardy and if the anomaly creates an actual bias, which changes a judges decision.

All too often, however, the conflicted Circuit Court Judge in West Virginia says nothing and proceeds to rule in favor of the connected party, while the loser goes off without realizing an undisclosed bias blew their case like a Butcher Bitch at the High School Prom.

Normally, under normal circumstance, “Everybody should have the right to ensure the judge sitting on their case doesn’t have a CONFLICT,” but that is not the way the WIND BLOWS In GILMER COUNTY home of the CROOKED COUNTY CROOKS!!

Nothing was ever said by Circuit Court Judge ALSOP about a CONFLICT with the lawyer for the executor of the Cottrill Estate SALLY BOZEAT during SIX YEARS of COURT during the LONG DRAWN OUT Cottrill Estate Case –that was in the news — and the public eye — and involves a wrongful death that is STILL UNDER INVESTIGATION according to Gilmer County Sheriff Larry Gerwig!

The Central West Virginia Council of Concerned Citizens have PROOF of the misconduct by Judge Alsop by publishing this letter by SALLY BOZEAT who claims to have authored the WILL of WILLARD COTTRILL and a person that had an interest in the outcome of the estate by relation.

HERE IS THE UNREPORTED LETTER BY BOZEAT ATTORNEY FOR THE EXECUTOR MIKE MURPHY.

The judge says he will do something, but does not one god damn thing but sit on his ass as usual.

And here is the response by Sally Bozeat but NONE of this has been reported to authorities. The letters seemed to have some influence on the judge since he reversed the County Commission Decision and the case came out in favor of Sally Bozeat and her interests when before the letter, the Gilmer County Commission had ruled against her interests.

YOU the RGW READER decide…. was the judge influenced by the letters from BOZEAT?

For the reason the case was reversed? … And the GOATMAN does currently run LOOSE in the hollar out in Linn, West Virginia. The Gilmer Commission was going to give the GOATMAN the BOOT and nullify the sale of the property!

Crimes and criminals run amok in Gilmer County under the leadership of the CROOKED COUNTY CROOKS, ..are these the words we hear JUDGE ALSOP say from his courthouse roost…

“It was a blue letter
She wrote to me
It’s silver words she told…”
