Black Street Performer Uncle Louie Arrested for 1974 Cold Case Convenience Store Murder

FINGERPRINT EVIDENCE IMPLICATED UNCLE LOUIE.

NOLA

Fingerprints left at a Florida convenience store 43 years ago helped connect detectives in a Florida homicide cold case unit with their suspect, New Orleans resident Johnie Miller, authorities said. Miller, 60, is also known as one of the French Quarter’s most recognizable street performers, “Uncle Louie.”

New Orleans police arrested Miller May 16 on an out of state warrant for second-degree murder and attempted armed robbery out of Jacksonville, Fla., court records show. Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams on Wednesday (May 24) announced Miller’s arrest in connection with the decades-old shooting death of store operator Freddie Farah.

Farah, a father of four, was 34 when he was killed during an attempted robbery on May 22, 1974, according to Project: Cold Case, an organization that recently highlighted Farah’s case as part of its partnership with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Miller’s act involves him wearing an Uncle Sam suit and freezing mid-stride while appearing to walk a toy dog, often accommodating tourists who stop to pose for photos with him.

Farah’s son Bobby Farah, 56, appeared at a news conference with the Jacksonville sheriff Wednesday and told reporters he “always had this feeling” the person responsible for his father’s death was “out there.”

“We’re relieved,” Bobby Farah said into the microphone, his sisters and mother standing beside him. “Some of us never thought we would see this day.”

Williams on Wednesday attributed the arrest to the tenacity of cold case detectives, advances in fingerprint forensic technology and help from a New Orleans police officer who worked in the French Quarter. He said fingerprint technology did not match any suspects when it was initially tested in the 1970s. The technology was in its infancy stages then, the sheriff said.

Detectives again tested the prints in 1998, Williams said, to no avail. But in December 2016, the Automated Fingerprint Identification System delivered a hit on Miller.

The Orleans Public Defender’s Office was appointed to defend Miller. The Public Defender’s office has a policy of not commenting on open cases.

Miller told the Times-Picayune in 2014 that he had been performing in the Quarter for more than 20 years. Williams on Wednesday said Miller moved to New Orleans in the early 1990s.

Miller has been housed for the last week at the Orleans Justice Center jail without bond. He refused to sign papers to be voluntarily extradited to Florida, court records show. An extradition hearing had been set for June 26, but in the meantime, records show, NOPD officer Michael Hamilton has requested an extradition order from Gov. John Bel Edwards.

Sheriff Williams said detectives also made contact with a witness to the 1974 store shooting. That witness was 14 at the time and is now 57 and living outside of Florida. He said she was able to “provide valuable information” about the case, which guided their investigation.

The lead detective and her partner on Freddie Farah case traveled to New Orleans to track down Miller, Williams said. When they arrived at his known address, they learned Miller had recently been evicted. The landlord told detectives his former tenant “was potentially a street performer in town,” which led detectives to an NOPD detective in the French Quarter, the sheriff said.

“This (NOPD) officer immediately recognized him,” Williams said. He said Miller was placed under arrest the same day.

Asked about Miller’s criminal record since the murder, Williams said Miller had been arrested since 1974, but he did not know what the charges were and if they resulted in any convictions. Orleans Parish Criminal District Court online records, which date back at least to the 1990s, do not show any charges for Miller.

Ryan Backman, the founder and director of Project: Cold Case said he started the organization after his father was murdered in 2009 to publicize cold cases in hopes of leading to tips that help solve them. Sheriff Williams thanked Project: Cold Case during Wednesday’s press conference. Backman said the website featured Farah’s case in April at the request of the sheriff’s office.

Backman said the unsolved case of this father’s murder is eight years old, “so cases like this that are 40-plus years old… gives hope to everybody else out there that’s still waiting.”

Judicial Watch Files FOIA Request with Police, FBI Over Seth Rich Murder

Judicial Watch

“You can trust Judicial Watch to get to the bottom of this issue…and to get the documents directly so that you and the American people can figure out whether or not there needs to be a controversy about this tragic murder, or whether there’s something more than meets the eye.” –JW President Tom Fitton

-FULL TRANSCRIPT-

I know a lot of you are asking questions about what Judicial Watch is doing to investigate the controversy surrounding the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich. We’ve filed Freedom of Information requests to the DC police department and the DC mayor’s office last week.

We have an FBI request pending from last year, and of course, separately we are asking questions under the federal Freedom of Information Act about the DNC hack itself.

You can trust Judicial Watch to get to the bottom of this issue, at least ask the questions in a sensible way, and to get the documents directly so that you and the American people can figure out whether or not there needs to be a controversy about this tragic murder, or whether there’s something more than meets the eye.

But either way, you can’t trust the media to do it, you can’t trust Congress to do it, but you can trust Judicial Watch to ask the tough questions and demand answers.

-END-

Microchip put together one Tweet and/or Retweet after another on the various threads in the murder. It all points toward Hillary Clinton and other top Democrats ordering an assassination. Be aware that Seth Rich used the word “Panda” as his screen name on various social media accounts.

Colored Chiropractor Offs White Girlfriend and Self

A respectable, edjumacated Negro stalked a white woman for months, terrorizing her, and then murdered her. When the police were closing in on him, he killed himself.

Two elementary-school-age boys were left behind by the white victim.

I’m sure that somewhere along the way that someone warned Renee Sue O’Neal to avoid the groid, but these independent modern women think they can ride and tame the tiger. As is often the case, she was wrong.

SACBEE

Renee Sue O’Neal, the Lincoln woman found shot to death Wednesday morning in her garage, had filed a restraining order against the man now suspected of killing her, Lincoln police Chief Doug Lee said Thursday.

Jerrod Devery Hill, 31, of El Dorado Hills, also pleaded no contest in April to a felony stalking charge filed against him in January, Sacramento Superior Court records show.

Hill apparently shot himself to death as officers pursued him Wednesday on Interstate 80 near Truckee, police said. Hill was found in his car after officers used spike strips to try to stop him from fleeing.

Hill and O’Neal, 35, were identified Thursday by coroner’s offices in Nevada and Placer counties.

Lee said O’Neal was found in a vehicle in the garage of a home in the 2400 block of Lincoln Airpark Drive after a witness called to report hearing possible gunshots and seeing a man fleeing from the home about 8:20 a.m. Wednesday. The man left in what was described to police as a white Hyundai.

Public records show O’Neal lived in the home where her body was found.

Months before the shooting, Sacramento Superior Court records show four felony charges were filed against Hill in Sacramento. Two of those charges were for alleged burglary, one for stalking and the last for petty theft. A no contest plea for the felony stalking charge was entered in April. Court documents indicate a hearing to dismiss the other charges in the case was held early Thursday.

Lee said the witness who made the call Wednesday morning told police he recognized the man who fled the home as Hill. O’Neal had a restraining order against Hill, but Lee said he did not know when or where it was granted, and whether it stemmed from a previous romantic relationship or friendship between the two.

The criminal complaint filed in the Sacramento County court case alleges Hill entered a residence, where someone referred to as Renee Doe and another woman lived, with the intent of stealing belongings on July 19 and July 20 of last year, and again on Oct. 3.

The files also say Hill repeatedly harassed Renee Doe during that time, making credible threats that would cause her to have a reasonable fear for her safety and the safety of her family.

Hill was listed as a licensed chiropractor on the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners website. Court documents for the felony stalking case include a move by prosecutors to bar Hill from using his chiropractic license, saying, “A licensed chiropractor holds a position of trust with his employer and consumers. Here, Defendant has shown, by his act of burglary, stalking, and theft against his previous girlfriend, that continuing to allow him access to patients in this position of trust is contrary to the best interests of the public.”

Rachell Walker, a neighbor living in the newly developed neighborhood near the city’s airport, said O’Neal moved to the area a few months before the shooting and was a mother to two elementary-aged twin boys.

“She just seemed friendly,” Walker said. “I think everybody’s kind of shocked.”

A Facebook page under O’Neal’s name, posted hours after the shooting, was described as “a grassroots campaign to change privacy laws for victims of Domestic Violence in honor of Renee O’Neal and the countless women who were killed before her.”

Efforts to reach O’Neal’s family and friends were not successful Thursday. A message from the Facebook page published under O’Neal’s name declined an interview request from a Sacramento Bee reporter Thursday.

“Her family has requested privacy and for us not to speak to the press at this time,” the message said. “As you can see we are all trying to make sense out (of) the impossible.”

The Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ website listed Hill as working at Back to Health Chiropractic, Simms Family Care, in El Dorado Hills. The chiropractic facility did not immediately return a call for information Thursday, though a cached version of the chiropractic office’s website says Hill studied at the Southern California University of Health Sciences. Hill graduated in April 2012 and was his class’s valedictorian. He went on to earn a master’s degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, according to the website.

Hill’s chiropractic license expired at the end of March and a disciplinary action dated April 3 was listed under his name, the Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ website showed. Documents filed under the disciplinary action portion of Hill’s profile linked to the Sacramento Superior Court case files submitted to bar the 31-year-old from using his license.

Father of Girl Killed by Tinted Terrorist in Times Square Reacts Like a Real White Man

Thomas Elsman threatened to kill the diseased garbage that killed his daughter in the Times Square car attack on Thursday.

Kudos to him for not going soft and mushy and forgivvy.

New York Post

The grief-stricken father of the young woman fatally mowed down by a maniac driver speeding down a Times Square sidewalk said Friday, “My heart died in New York yesterday.’’

Thomas Elsman drove to the city from his Michigan home with his son Thursday night after hearing the awful news about 18-year-old Alyssa.

He told WNYW/Fox 5, “There’s no words. I want to scream. My first-born daughter is gone.’’

Alyssa, her 13-year-old sister, Ava, and their mom were visiting New York when Richard Rojas struck.

RICHARD ROJAS.

At one point Friday, Elsman went to the Midtown South station house where Rojas was being held, and threatened to kill him, law-enforcement sources told The Post. Elsman was taken to Bellevue Hospital to be calmed down.

Meanwhile, sources said Ava was more seriously injured than had been reported. She suffered a fractured pelvis and collapsed lung in addition to a broken leg.

Ava was told that her sister died in the tragedy, their father said.

Elsman was outraged when he learned more about Rojas.

“If it was an accident, I would forgive,” he said in the interview.

“The fact that I found out he was on drugs, and then also today in court said, ‘I wanted to kill everyone,’ and he wanted to go suicide-by-cop, that’s intent,” he said.

“He knew what he was doing, and I don’t care what happens to him.”

I don’t believe Thomas will give his daughter’s killer a hug and forgive him in court. White forgiveness should be reserved for those who deserve it.

Newest Developments in Seth Rich Murder Mystery

Claim: Seth Rich’s Reddit account was recently edited by an unknown party: Link: Someone just edited Seth Rich’s Reddit Posts

A Zerohedge article implies that the DNC (Hillary, et. al.) had Seth murdered.

The following summary of the week’s developments was just published an hour ago by news.com.au.

news.com.au

AN INTERNET conspiracy theory over the murder of a young former Democratic National Convention staffer in the US has once again reached fever pitch.

Seth Rich was shot in the back and killed walking home in an up-market Washington neighbourhood in July last year.

The death has largely gone unexplained, with Washington police suggesting it was the result of a botched robbery. But in the aftermath of the killing, conspiracy theorists claimed the 27-year-old staffer was responsible for leaking a trove of 20,000 emails stolen from the DNC servers to WikiLeaks.

The stolen materials contained explosive details of collusion between the Hillary Clinton camp and the DNC to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign in the lead-up to the 2016 US presidential election.

This week, both Fox News and a Fox affiliate in Washington, WTTG-TV, published and aired reports which cited information attributed to a private investigator named Rod Wheeler, who claimed he had uncovered evidence showing Mr Rich had been in contact with WikiLeaks before his death.

WikiLeaks — which is now seen by many US Democrats as a vehicle for Russian intelligence — retweeted stories containing the latest claims, which many interpreted as confirmation. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange last year appeared to suggest Mr Rich was the leaker.

US authorities have accused Russian operatives of being the source of the leaks.

The Fox News story was also shared by the Russian Embassy in the UK on Twitter, receiving thousands of shares. But the report has since been proven to be inaccurate. Mr Wheeler said he had no information to that effect, and an FBI spokesman told the media that, contrary to the report, it had not conducted a forensic analysis of Mr Rich’s laptop that showed he had been in contact WikiLeaks.

A spokesman for the Rich Family, Brad Bauman, lashed out at those who continue to promote the story, which includes prominent Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.

“Anyone who continues to push this fake news story after it was so thoroughly debunked is proving to the world they have a transparent political agenda or are a sociopath,” he told CNN. “It either case, they should be taken off the air because they are either blind to the damage they are doing to a murder victims family or don’t care, showing a profound lack of judgment and common decency.”

On Sunday, speculation that the young DNC staffer was involved in the leaks was promoted by internet millionaire and the embattled founder of Megaupload, Kim Dotcom. Mr Dotcom tweeted that Mr Rich was the leaker and that he himself was also involved, promising to issue a statement after meeting with his lawyers this week.

Things got weirder still after internet sleuths uncovered what appeared to be Mr Rich’s social media accounts, including his Reddit username, “MeGrimlock4” and Twitter handle, “@panda4progress”.
His online persona revealed Mr Rich was a huge supporter of Sanders, which conspiracy theorists hold up as evidence of his motive to leak the e-mails which showed the DNC colluded to prevent Sanders from gaining the party nomination.

In a strange development, users discovered a tweet by former DNC director of data science Andrew Therriault, which appeared to posthumously mock Mr Rich, referring to him as an “embarrassment”.

On 27 April, quoting a tweet which read, “TIL: A group of Pandas is called an ‘Embarrassment’ #pandafacts”, Mr Therriault tweeted: “cc: @panda4progress”. The tweet has since been deleted.

Not long after, Reddit appeared to alter posts made by Mr Rich — a big no-no from the perspective of the site’s users — to remove a comment in which he shared his e-mail address, linking him to the account.

Reddit has a strict policy against sharing personal information, but a previous case in which Reddit chief executive Steve Huffman manually altered user’s comments drew ire from users and forced a public apology.

At the time, even former CEO Ellen Pao weighed in, saying she “would have immediately fired anyone” who did what Mr Huffman did. News.com.au contacted Reddit to ask about the alleged changes made to Mr Rich’s comment history.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post has published multiple reports this weekend describing claims of a cover-up over the murder of Seth Rich as fake news.

“The re-emergence of the conspiracy theory this week, which did not lack for real news, revealed plenty about the fake news ecosystem … in the Trump era,” the paper wrote. “It also happened to cause untold pain for the Rich family, which has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the so-called private investigator who led this dive back into the fever swamp.”

If I run across any more pertinent information, I’ll post it in a comment on this piece tonight.

Black Lives Splatter: 6 Year Old Black Boy Murdered by BLACK Carjackers for No Reason

KINGSTON ARCHIE. SHOT DEAD BY BLACK CAR THIEVES AS HE SLEPT IN BACKSEAT.

Three sons of Obama steal a black woman’s car with her boy asleep in the back seat. Instead of releasing him, they shot him in the head right in the backseat of the car.

Black lives matter is a joke. Death penalty for the perps.

Excerpt from AL.com

While Ebony Archie shopped inside a Jackson, Mississippi, grocery store, her 6-year-old son Kingston slept in the car.

It was just after 1 a.m. on Thursday and Archie, a mother of two from Jackson, had left the Toyota Camry running and the doors apparently unlocked. She was buying medicine, her family said, and Kingston had asked to stay in the car.

In just a few hours, Kingston was scheduled to graduate from kindergarten.

Instead, he was driven away by carjackers. After nine hours, police found his mother’s stolen vehicle abandoned on a dead-end road. Kingston was in the back seat, fatally shot in the head.

Authorities later arrested three teenagers. Capital murder charges are pending, authorities said.

“This is a 6-year-old that’s gone,” Kingston’s cousin, Kolby Irby, told reporters at the crime scene as the boy’s anguished family wept nearby. “His mother has to deal with it. That’s her baby.”

At several news conferences Thursday, visibly emotional authorities offered few details to equally unnerved reporters about why the suspects killed Kingston rather than let him out of the car. It’s unclear if they knew the boy was in the Camry at the time it was stolen.

Security footage from the Jackson Kroger showed two men in a two-door Honda Civic pull up beside Archie’s parked Toyota Camry shortly after she entered the store, authorities said. The passenger jumped out of the Civic and into the Camry, where Kingston slept.

Both vehicles sped away.

Authorities offered conflicting timetables of the early hours of their investigation. A spokesman for the Madison County Sheriff’s Office told the New York Times that Archie left her son in the car at about 1:15 a.m. and that the Camry was stolen during the 10 to 15 minute window during which she was inside the store.

But at an afternoon news conference, Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason said a deputy stationed at the Kroger saw Archie exit the store at about 2:30 a.m. She approached the deputy and said her car was missing, but did not initially report that her son was inside, Mason said.

What began as an auto-theft investigation became a kidnapping case, and at 4:30 a.m. the Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued an Amber Alert, reported the Clarion-Ledger.

Later in the morning, law enforcement and family pleaded with Kingston’s kidnappers to bring the boy home.

“We’re just asking, regardless of who you are, what you are and where you are, if you could just return the child,” the child’s uncle, David Archie, told the Clarion-Ledger. “Leave him somewhere, find a way to get him to a store, to a gas station, to a restaurant, Walmart, anywhere people are and just drop him off.”

“He doesn’t even know what was going on,” David Archie added.

Just before 10 a.m., authorities canceled the Amber Alert. During another news conference about 30 minutes later they announced that a man in Madison County had discovered the missing Camry. The body of the boy was inside.

Apparently unaware of the horrible news, some of the boy’s family members arrived at the crime scene during the news conference – and that’s how they found out that Kingston was gone forever. A family member screamed “No!” and “He was a baby!” Authorities cut short their update.

Across town, at the district attorney’s office, another heart-wrenching scene unfolded as the rest of Kingston’s family, including his mother, learned he had died. They had been misinformed that the child was safe, reported the Clarion-Ledger, but cries rang out as one by one they absorbed the truth.

Ebony Archie, barefoot and crying, was almost catatonic. A cousin carried her limp body from the office building, according to the Clarion-Ledger. “Kingston?” she asked. “Where is Kingston?”

Police there wiped tears from their eyes, the newspaper reported.

By Thursday night, all three suspects were in custody at the Madison County Jail. Two were 17 years old. The age of the third was unavailable. All are being held without bond pending formal charges. If convicted they could be subject to the death penalty.

One of the juveniles in custody is a senior at Ridgeland High School, a football player until he was dismissed from the team last year, Superintendent Ronnie McGehee told the Clarion-Ledger.

Dusky Driver Mows Down Pedestrians in Times Square, One Dead, 22 Injured

RICHARD ROJAS. MURDERER.

ALYSSA ELSMAN. DEAD.

One of the problems with Latinos is that they exhibit a high rate of mental illness that leads to violence. The race realist would say that Latinos should have their own country (Mexico, Dominican Republic, etc.) where they can deal with their own kind as they see fit.

The killer in this story is probably going to cop an insanity plea. That will mean that he’s going to be out on the streets at some time in the future. Where his mental illness will come back and be played out a second time.

AOL.com

NEW YORK, May 18 (Reuters) – A former U.S. Navy sailor slammed his car into pedestrians in New York City’s packed Times Square on Thursday, killing an 18-year-old woman and wounding 22 people, and authorities said there was no indication it was an act of terrorism.

Witnesses said the motorist mounted the sidewalk in a burgundy Honda sedan and sped along more than three city blocks, knocking people over before the car hit a pole and came to rest at 45th Street and Broadway in Midtown Manhattan.

Police who took the driver into custody identified him as Richard Rojas, 26, of the New York City borough of the Bronx. They said he had been arrested twice for drunken driving in 2008 and 2015, and once earlier this month for menacing.

There was “no indication” it was an act of terrorism, Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference at the scene.

Initial reports of the incident brought to mind vehicle attacks on pedestrians like those seen in recent months in Britain, France, Germany, Israel and Sweden.

“People were being hit and rolling off the car,” said Josh Duboff, who works at the nearby Thomson Reuters headquarters. He said he leaped out of the way to avoid being struck.

Shoes were scattered on the sidewalk. A woman’s body lay covered with a bloodstained blanket. A police officer kept vigil nearby, sadly shaking his head.

The dead woman was named by police as Alyssa Elsman, an 18-year-old who was on vacation with her family from Michigan.
