<quoted text>That`s all some gossip being spread about Roy. IF they thought that he`d killed BOWker, they`d have pressed charges. Take an old dying man and badger him enough and he`ll tell you that he can fly. Tinsley`s killer wrote on the barn that he`d kill again and then BOWker was murdered. Obviously the same killer killed them both. What better way to try and frame Roy than to use a blue pickup truck and to dump Tinsely where he`d be a suspect.
Have you ever gave your information to AMW? Where did you hear about the beer can?

Compare APRIL TINSELY`S MURDERS TO THE OTHERS Gary claims to have committed. Gary thinks that he`s the 2nd ZODIAC Killer. ZODIAC OFTEN killed on/near Holidays. Someone called Jim DUNBAR show claiming to be the Zodiac killer. Call records showed calls came from OAKLAND California. In 1976-77, the OAKLAND County Child Killings (OCCK) occurred in Michigan, near Detroit, mimicking the ZODIAC. All 4 victims were abducted on WED/SUN Gary`s days off. As ZODIAC had often killed on/near Holidays, OCCK were all abducted or dumped ONE DAY FROM the Major Holidays of CHRISTMAS, NEW YEARS, VALENTINES AND ST. PATRICK`S DAY. ZODIAC was commonly thought to be arhur leigh ALLEN. In the midst of the OCCK killings Jane ALLAN was murdered. The Iowa abduction/murders were all WED/SUN except in the midst Marc ALLEN was abducted ONE DAY from EASTER. The OCCK were in DEC., JAN., FEB., & March. APRIL Tinsely was murdered in APRIL and her body dumped in ALLEN County. ZODIAC style threats to kill children with backward letters were left after her murder, as well as semen in a condom matching that left in Tinsely. This occurred the day after news about BTK Killer became public. Then on the 20th anniversary of the OCCK, Jonbenet Ramsey was murdered the morning after CHRISTMAS and co-conspirator Michael Helgoth was murdered on VALENTINES, exactly coinciding with two of the four OCCK dates. At Helgoth`s murder was left a Tim ALLEN vcr tape with the middle taped over about child abductions. OCCK boys were molested ANALLY, perhaps with an object, and strangled. April Tinsely was molested with vaginally with a beer can and strangled. Jonbenet Ramsey was molested vaginally with a paint brush stick and strangled. Additionally OCCK were in DEC., JAN. FEB. & MARCH. APRIL Tinsely was murdered in APRIL. After Jonbenet Ramseys murder, hobos who had witnessed a girl being carried were murdered. Hobo JULIan was murdered in JULY, then the other two allegedly murdered in AUG. & SEPT. ZODIAC NOTES were in The JBRamsey Ransom note and excerpts from the NICK of Time to brag about his abduction murder of Morgan NICK n Alma Arkansas. FBI needs to compare the naked neck down photo he sent about Tinsely to eye witness accounts at NICK`s abduction.

You must be a cop. Once I got ahold of a radio guy who supposedly had a lot of pull. They spoke with me on air and then called the police. Police went from I`m too crazy to talk, to suddenly tell him on air that I`m a suspect. Yes I gave them my DNA and they threw it on the cars dashboard because if you`re not willing to give your DNA you must be a killer, but if you`re willing to give your DNA then they don`t want it. AMW?, yes I conversed with them a couple years ago by snail mail, but I hadn`t connected Gary`s condom story to Tinsley because I`d never heard of Tinsley yet.

No I'm not a cop. I was just wondering if they ever ask you for your's. Like you I have worked on April's case. LE ask for my DNA, which I gave them. I don't want you thinking I'm suspecting you of anything. Just trying to solve a case.

Another strange thing that happened. Years ago I took my kids up north to visit grandma. For added security I nailed a 2 by 4 across my side door on the inside. When we got back home we found m&m`s just inside our door in packs. I asked Gary how the m&m`s got there and he said he left them there for my kids like he`d been bye to visit but missed us. Then he asked why I had the side door barricaded. This wasn`t visible from outside, so I`m wondering was he inside the house or did he just push hard and knew it was barricaded. Shortly after that I found 8 or ten girls shoes upstairs that there was only one of. None of them looked like shoes that belonged to my girls and one of them was a white canvas like deck shoe. I threw them away and told Gary when I saw him at my brothers about the strange shoes, then someone ransacked the trash can. Shortly after that Gary grabbed my 5 year old daughter and when I finally got him to release her he warned us to keep her on the other side of the room, that he couldn`t control himself and we had to bar him. From then on I mostly only saw him at my brothers a few blocks away. The white deck shoe may have been Tinsely`s.

I also found a blue bedspread that I`d never seen before that resembles the bedspread in the Tinsely photo. This one has a large heart right in the center and I can`t figure out where it came from.

Partial photos of the bedspread are on websites when you google April Tinsely`s name. I didn`t say that it`s the same bedspread, I just can`t figure how these strange objects, especially the shoes ended up in my upstairs

You should NOT be putting this info on the internet like that even if it is true. Kulon has family and love ones just like my guy Dellan. I hope little Kulon comes back to make you swallow those words dummy.

KULON LEWIS 31, WAS SHOT DEAD AUGUST 2004, HE HAD BEEN SHOT MORE THAN 5 TIMES SINCE HE WAS A TEENAGER AND HAS KILLED SERVAL PEOPLE IN FORT WAYNE. HE SHOT DELLAN AFTER SHOOTING HIS 2 COUSINS AND THEY DIDN'T DIE. IT ALL STARTED WITH DELLAN'S COUSIN AND KULON, OVER SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED IN THE 90'S, BETWEEN DELLAN AND HIS 2 COUSINS KULON HAD SHOT THE 3 OF THEM A TOTAL OF 4 OR 5 TIMES WITH ONLY DELLAN BEING KILLED. I'M PRETTY SURE KULON LEWIS WAS KILLED BECAUSE HE KILLED DELLAN, AND I BELIEVE KULON DESERVED WHAT HE GOT!!!
THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH "APRIL TINSEY'S MURDER", I WAS SHEARING AN EXAMPLE WITH SOMETHING THAT WAS SAID.

I found it strange when I read Crow was watching Jessica's prayer vigil on television with a neighbour from the apartment complex, Jessica was missing a shoe when her body was recovered. And you are correct the wheels of justice turn slow. The wheel never stops turning and justice will prevail.
I was just looking up articles and stuff, reading up on the case. It's been so long since it happened to Jessica...it's still so hard for me to take in. I can hardly believe it, and I wonder how life would have been different if that sick monster hadn't done what he did. I'm Jessica's sister....I am glad to say one thing. He died in prison, sometime around the middle of last year we received the notice by mail. Did you know she would have been 27 now? It's crazy, but Crow got what he deserved, death in prison. I never got to meet my sister because of him; I wasn't even born yet when it happened.

I bought a blue GM truck from junker Bobby T. Later I got another truck and resold the truck to Bob who gave it to his buddy Gordy. Gordy had a black and silver Rock and Roll Sticker on the driver side rear. I think it said Ted Nugent. Later at some point Gordy rambled something about a guy giving him a seven year old girl to molest. Bobby T. made some similar remarks at another time and said your buddy took a photo of me naked so I can`t get in any trouble. I saw Bob once recently and he said Gordy was murdered by being run over by a truck. Recently I was talking to a woman on the Internet about serial killer Gary, years ago having left with his coworker in a cream white car saying they were going hunting kids. She said the car exactly matched when they tried to grab her when she was a kid. Another poster named Cindy was reading online and she became convinced so much that she read all my posts. She connected Gary`s story of leaving semen in a condom to the April Tinsely case. This is what I think happened. Bob was hard up and Gary gave him April Tinsely and left Bob`s semen in her. Gary had strung telephone wire in Indiana in 1987 and wanted to frame Roy Hensley, who had a blue truck. Gary dumped Tinsely one day from Easter because he thinks that he`s Zodiac. All 4 Michigan OCCK cases were ONE DAY FROM HOLIDAYS and he killed Jane ALLAN in the midst & in Iowa killed Marc ALLEN ONE DAY FROM EASTER SO HE KEPT TINSELY`S BODY UNTIL ONE DAY FROM EASTER AND DUMPED HER IN ALLEN county because ZODIAC WAS POSSIBLY Arthur leigh ALLEN. Gary talked about writing something Zodiac with HI HONEY on the side of a barn and that it didn`t work well so that he had to rewrite it. Then he got Gordy and gave him Bowker. Then in 2004 BTK had his 30th anniversary and Gary got jealous so he got Bobby T.`s semen and the neck down naked photo that he took of Bob and used the Forest green truck with matching camper that my brother gave him before he died and left hi Honey notes on girls bicycle seats threatening them as Zodiac did. April Tinsely`s killer is Gary Mac.

And Gary dumped Bowker near Hensley`s house to frame Roy. Roy`s sons are pedophiles as is Gary and probably know Gary and probably lied saying Roy admitted to killing Tinsely. OBVIOUSLY ROY DIDN`T KILL HER since semen was left in a condom matching that left in Tinsely AFTER ROY WAS ALREADY DEAD.

If you ask your mother, she might remember my daughter and I who lived in the building next to theirs. Jessica and my daughter paled on occasions and I would consider them friends.
That was a very sad and scary time for me, a single father who, before this happened, had left my daughter alone due to my work schedule. I got home late that night and the neighbors told me about what had happened as I was going to our apartment.
Jessica was a sweet girl and my daughter missed(s) her even today when she remembers it.

The April Tinsely and Bowker murders will soon be solved because the same killer. Gary, who killed them also killed Jonbenet Ramsey and messed up leaving his DNA saliva comingled with Jonbenet`s blood and skin from his hands on the waistband of Jonbenet`s long johns..

The blue truck used to grab Tinsely in 1988 was a truck that I had bought from Bobby T. and sold back to him.
The serial killer, Gary worked in Indiana in 1987 and knew Roy Hensely`s pedohile kids and wanted the blue truck to frame Hensely

The semen left in Tinsely is Bobby T.`s. Then Bobby T gave the blue truck to Gordy with the ted Nugent sticker on it. The semen in Bowker doesn`t match that in Tinsely. The semen in Bowker is from Gordy, who Gary then killed by running him over with a truck.

Then in 2004 BTK became big news for his 30th anniversary. Gary quickly gave Bobby T. another girl, keeping Bobby T.`s semen in the condom and taking a naked neck down photo of Bobby T. and putting it on the kids bicycles in 2004 the day after BTK was Big news because Gary thinks he`s a bigger killer than BTK. Bobby T. is short, skinny with a little muscle and somewhat hairy with brown hair

The green truck with matching camper seen leaving the Hi honey Notes is one that my deceased brother gave Gary in 2001

Gary`s sister also named Gary as the 1976/77 Michigan Oakland County Child Killer and her DNA is on file. Police could easily get her permission to compare her DNA to the DNA left on Jonbenet Ramsey

Or police could test my DNA which will mitochondrially match the hair that my brother gave Gary, which Gary left on the blanket covering Jonbenet Ramsey

Interesting read. From the sounds of it, they are waiting on technology to be developed to test what little DNA that they have. I think the DNA is only good for so many years before it diminishes unless they have found a way to preserve it better.

So is there any new news to the April Tinsley case?
