I was in downtown Richmond that morning and heard this loud explosion followed by a bevy of Firetrucks. Yo could noot get very close it was on Hayley Irvine Street. He got a Letter Bomb or Package, The Feds stayed at the Holiday Inn fo ver one year and never made an arrest. This place ( Madison County) has or had a connection with some big bad guys back in 60's 70,s and 80's.m Some thought there was a coneection between Monroe's Murder and the Indictment of Bunt Gross rumors were flying everywhere. As far as the Monroe Murder it was not DRUGS it was a unpaid gambling debt. Monroe would travel with the number #1 Nine Ball player in the world and back him against anyone. Noone knew this guy (who was from Richmond) Earl Strickland not Clyde Childers. And they would dump until they goy the stakes high enough andof course he was not going to lose. Monroe made 100's of thousands dollars. But he neglected to pay this one fellow who had made a violation at the table. Well this is just one of the few things that may have transpired. The other one I posted in response to the topic on Monroe. But back to the Powell Murder he was making bank at Earl's Suzuki and Honda, and from what I undersand he had his own plane and could fly it. Let us see if we can piece this together. The Maverick Club in 1983 was getting big time pool tourneys and big time acts George Jones (WHEN HE SHOWED UP and I believe Jerry Lee Lewis.

continued from above, Throw in Bunt Gross and the oppurtunity to Launder $$$ through the dealership and a guy that could fly his own plane, and a guy that had the most successful nighyt club going. I don't know the true story on all of this and if it was connected in anyway. I am just throwing it out there to see if anyone ha any opinions on the matter. I know that was a wiild time around her for such a small community.

Earl still has family and friends in this town. I really dont think the graphic description (which by the way is incorrect) would be appreciated. Does no one have compassion anymore? It does not matter that it has been decades, he has family and friends that still grieve. Try love, it gets you further than hate.

Thanks to the Unibomber, it's not so easy to send mail bombs anymore. Security is much tighter. Not that it would stop anybody who really wants to get at someone. It's a shame about Mr. Brock and Mr. Powell.

A lot of speculation on your part. I was there that day and knew Earl. Before you start smearing a man's name, throw up some evidence. I'm sure the postal inspaectors would like to talk with you if you are so well informed

Seems kinda funny you'd just bring it up, unless yourself are the one who killed him. Murderers tend to want to have their crime remembered and talked about when it starts to fade from the public eye. That would explain why you are using an anonymous proxy also. Perhaps this entire thread should be brought to the attention of the FBI.

I didn't "just bring it up" I just found the posting. A day like that you live with what you saw everyday of your life. The Postal Inspection service has jurisdiction on this case as the package came through the USPS.

Any of it could be true. Recently heard BG had a young girl murdered and paid the locals to cover it up. Also heard about ties to northern KY open a whole new can of worms. Ever read Blue Grass conspiracy? Everyone should.

"BG" = Bowling Green?=?

BG Conspiracy is Interesting. Powell knew Lambert for sure and possiblly Andrew Thorton

Knowledgeable people please continue making posts. I bought motorcycles from Earl and automobiles from Bunt. Both of them treated me well before the sale and after. I can't say that for JONES HEATING AND AIR.

Your point?

what do you mean by, "he was making bank"? Who is "he"

He was IFR certified, but so are many pilots... point?

He actually had 2 planes a 150 and a 182 Cessna...we "crash" landed the 182 in Florida...lol...wasen't really a crash ..just slid off the end of the runway. Wasen't making a drug run (like a lot of people think)...just went for a good time.
He didn't know Jimmy Lambert...I knew both of'em and their paths never crossed (they could have easily been brothers , appearance wise though).
I never knew him to make drug runs in his plane's...he just loved to fly! There were days we would fly out of state just to eat lunch..he just really loved flying!
I was a close friend and I've heard all the rumors about him flying dope but that's all they are..rumors!

I agree with the plane and drug runs, Postal Inspectors said nothing there. Didn't know he had a 150 also. Did he have them at the same time?

He did know Jimmy Lambert. I have a close friend who worked for Jimmy that introduced them and saw them together at the Library lounge on more than one occasion
