Trumps was a bar in Cinci owned by Lambert and John Y. Similar stories arose about selecting women for private parties. As we all who read the book, two of those women dissappeared.

No, it wasn't Trumps then. This was a big party for a large group of young men. It was a sex party and after she got there she realized what was going to happen. While the rest started their party she stood fairly near the door waiting for an opportunity to get out. The guy guarding her walked away to join in and the guard at the door left also. That's when Prouty came up and started talking to her. After a time he told her he thought it was safe and told her to leave. She got out. The politician had told everyone that no one was to touch her that she was for some one else.

Melanie Flynn's grandfather, Clarence Flynn, was from Estill County. His wife was Delina Brandenburg Flynn from Lee County.

Billy Lyle Wilson (former judge) was involved in the drug smuggling conspiracy.

Drug runners used the backroads (Red Lick, Wagersville, Brushy Mountain, Farmers Ridge) to bring marijuana from the Danville area to Lee County.

There was a column in the CV&T years ago that listed a lot of the Estill County connections to the Bluegrass Conspiracy. These are just a couple.

Don't remember the year but it was shortly after the book came out. The editor wrote a column about it because he was related to Melanie's grandmother.

Know his name? I also would like to see it. FYI, Thorton's girlfriend, Rebecca Sharp writes books on how to care for the elderly. She is remarried living in Ohio. I never got how she escaped being charged. Her hands were as dirty as the key players. She just wore gloves!

Someone remarked that there was no KSP cold case press release for Melanie Flynn. I looked an there is not. Very strange. I did find this though.

Here is a link that might explain why. could this possibly be true? The poster says he is an ex-police officer. I find that statement highly unlikely. That does not however mean he doesn't have accurate information.

Melanie's brother was a police officer in Woodford County Kentucky. He also ran for Sheriff in Fayette County. His name is Brad and he is a very good guy. He used to have to attend training (mandatory for police officers) at the Department of Criminal Justice Training in Richmond, KY. It was awkward because the Commissioner at DOCJT was John Bizzack, who is also mentioned in the book. I believe it said that he (Bizzack) was the officer assigned to investigate Melanie's disapperance and he said that he talked to her or something and she was okay. Later it was determined that he couldn't have talked to her. This information is based upon reading the book over a decade ago, so I may be wrong about Bizzack's involvement, but I do know Brad personally and he is a great guy. She also has another brother who is a professional baseball player.

I knew Doug from 1989 to 1992 and even lived with him for a year or so in Madison. Doug was the most docile, harmless man on the planet. He spoke in a very quiet voice and in the years I knew him don't think I ever heard him raise his voice. He was a huge pot head and chain smoker that had a very bad alcoholism problem but he was harmless and wouldn't hurt anyone.

You are very obviously talking about a different Doug Flynn than the former Reds baseball player.

It was when the Elkins guy from Lee County was the editor of the Citizens Voice. I remember reading it but don't remember when, I think it was shortly after the Bluegrass Conspiracy book came out. The author was a former reporter for Channel 27.

Doing PR for the state. Saw his picture in, of all places, the Tribune about two months ago. Never did like that fat bastard and looks like he's put on a lot more weight since he was here.

Lee county Judge Billy Wilson was removed from the bench for a decision in a drug case involving Phillip Block who is Jullian Carrol's nephew. Block was at one time manager of both Library Lounge and Trumps. Library lounge was owned by Jimmy Lambert as was Trumps with John Y. Brown as a partner. Billy Wilson lived in Irvine.
