John Bizzack--
He retires from the Lexington Police Department after 25 years, and becomes "Dr. Bizzack" in 1993 having obtained a "Ph.D in Administration/Management " from Walden University in Minneapolis, known for its correspondence degrees. In 1996 Kentucky Governor Paul Patton appoints him State Commissioner of Criminal Justice Training. By the turn of the century Bizzack boasts authorship of some six books dealing with "leadership" in criminal justice affairs, including one listed with Amazon.com as Police Management for the 1990s: A Practitioner's Road Map, and reportedly lectures widely on professional standards for police officers. He owns Bittersweet Station, a imposing cattle farm on Winchester Road, is known as an enthusiast for British luxury sports cars, and not least is celebrated as a composer of country-and-western music, winning the Hank Cochran Song Writing Contest for his "Courage to Say Goodbye".

That is indeed the Bert Gordon, my Dad. He served 10 years in prison before coming to live with me and my kids. He passed away in 2004. I am trying to research his very colorful life, because he would not talk about it with me more than he had to. Any information on him would be appreciated. I am currently going through boxes of his court transcripts, and newspaper clippings I have collected over the years.

Bertram R. Gordon--
In the early 1990's, he is brought from his prison cell in the Netherlands to testify for the prosecution in the Canadian trial of Montreal crime boss Allan Ross for the murder of another drug dealer. Gordon has met Ralph Ross in 1987 and with a Canadian passport in the name of George Light promptly become the Canadian mobster's "main pilot". Their narcotics traffic into Montreal and Ottawa yields hundreds of millions of dollars, and, in a familiar pattern, reportedly implicates a prominent Montreal lawyer later murdered and a deputy director of intelligence of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who commits suicide as investigators close in on him. Fleeing to the Netherlands after a botched deal in 1987, and eventually arrested by the Dutch two years later, Gordon is sentenced there to eight-and-one-half years for smuggling. In 1991, he is deported to the U.S., where he agrees to testify against Ralph Ross in return for reduced American charges. Recounting in the trial the bulging loads and "suitcases of cash" in major drug deals in Colombia, the Bahamas and Europe as well as in Canada and the U.S., Gordon is described by the Canadian press as having been "tied in to the biggest smugglers of the 1970s and 1980s...keyed in with the best and brightest in the heydey of cocaine smuggling." In the end, Ross is convicted and teh sixty-five-year-old Gordon returns to U.S. custody. By the end of teh decade his whereabouts--whether dead, under witness protection, quietly retired, or even back at his old trade--would be unknown.

Yes, he lived in Miami at the Jockey Club at that time, and Drew was a frequent visitor from what I understand. Even though the charge didn't hold, they charged Dad with 2nd degree murder because Drew was flying his plane. I am not sure about any connection with Hilliard.

Lamberts house was raided in 1979. Steve Beshear took office as acting attorney general 1979, and Attorney General in 1980. He is a good man Disciples of Christ. Ask him what happened.

I won't put her name on here, but her Grandmother ran the Old Brown's grocery on 25. She lived in the trailer next to or behind the old store.

According to the Hempstead (NY) Township, 1930 Census, Bertram Gordon was born @1828-29 in Long Island, New York; was the son of Harry and Anna Gordon who were both born in New York. Both Harry and Anna Gordon's parents were all born in Russia. Gordon doesn't sound like a Russian name, but may be a shortened version of a Russian name. Or perhaps his grandparents weren't Russian, but were there for other reasons.

What about Rebecca Moore?(the gal whose remains turned up that were originally thought to be Melanie's remains) She was running with Jimmy Lambert.. she was 24 and worked at "Trumps" night club in Cincinnati.
She was to go to a party Jimmy was hosting for the waitresses to celebrate the sale of the club- however- she disappeared and it turned out that there was no party.
She was Running with him. But I dont think he killed her.
The type of partying that went on back then was .... serious partying. I dont know what happened to her. But, if she was with him I think she ....got too high.

Not saying she was a drug addict. At all, She was young and experimenting. Just having fun. It was really easy to get caught up in.
Im not sure what happened. This is my opinion.
