He and I were talking about some people that were like very a successful and also had goods, then both of the husband and wife or a famous in some way and their both rich or something like that and I well, they really have it all and scattered gives you who wants it all existing words like that's what I always feel again, especially in LOS Angeles, is like I was one tell those people with the tall new bulk boots and the white sweater and weird hat the and the bleach blonde hair. I know em, I dont I'm not
competing with you, I'm not interested in your life. I dont want what you, how I understand that you believe yourself to be the pinnacle of. Algeria, Ass Congrats, an auto toast, I see you're doing all the things. Your checking all the boxes from the weird subscription bucks company that you signed out before God, Fuckin Bless, get away from me. Have you seen the movie Ingrid goes west with that man is theirs character in that and it's what she is striving for. What's her name, she so great Stevens, Abraham Ivory, Plaza and she's trying to to reach that characters. Lifestyle, gulls hashtag levels, but she is just like us, social care and just all up in all these, like charming, not charming ways like dark ways that, like the cat, character? They had play and all of it is so exactly, but
a bungalow in Venice speech, with her hot bearded husband and their puppy, and they have a lot of bow. You know Joshua Tree style, mice and everything they eat is perfect in Kiev limits, and so she still Her dogs become friends of her. It's like it's very that I highly recommend that sounds really good and relate above. I really lies. I believe it's a this town is an end. I think. Maybe it's not even this town, I think a lot of power culture has become so drastically homogenized in a way that is like I know this is because I've never uninstall ram, and so, when I see little bits of India through yeah, it is its shocking to me how, strange it Everyone is starting to look exactly the same and and a little bit like sex stalls where it's like sex. Also, everyone has equals
as top and bottom levers and thereby they're, both giant and now the exact same siberia. Everyone has not a line of wrinkle or a mark on their failures. Every single person has lake half inch long eyelashes and gigantic eyebrows eyebrows, not even like wrinkle, the out even an expression and every that's kind of set aside an end a lot of contour and there's a window and every every wall in every room, letting in the most dapple lovely sunshine. bless us at its. So fuckin rat race to get somewhere. We don't even know at the point of it. Is I guess it's not real minutely. I mean I know, look I m not saying duty is bad. Obviously, everybody wants to feel good and look good turnouts head yet men. Rather you make yourself. I shall get get get bennets
don't assume it's interesting, just cause it. What would you think people want here? Let me brag real quick about how real I am at real shit cat food in this room. I mean right now: that's how real and you can you can't, are no instagram felt over that baby. It's all just like for its offer me in early mainly is hardy see food platter or is it more of a chicken in our supreme like fishermen's wharf on a hot day trials yeah. It is that's what it is what for ash tags. Azure am fishermen's. Why didn't you say Siegel picking at an empty bread ball? That's not why a clam chowder residue on a tourist right behind at taking a picture of earthly than making mosquitoes waste, smaller seagulls, Bibbs, bigger and then no minds around the sea. He get those boots. Oh my god!
Did he have a rib removed that signal? Skinny, no keys on paleo diet I wasn't a say you lived in terms- must go in the ninety is now reaching out. I'm wrong. Two thousand, though, to thousands here, shit, there's no way. I remember that sort of that, because there is a thing on fishermen's worth peer. Third, I used to go with my dad, so maybe I remember a superior thirty. Nine The fishermen are worth ok same aimed at the same time yeah yeah yeah, but that may sleep here. Thirty nine was like the weird marionette dull store, my my parents to be like we're. Never buying you anything from that story. Don't look our precious art pieces. There's no yakking way we're there, like you, can pay. One thing and I'm like. I absolutely want the four hundred dollar marionette my mother's, like what is wrong with Howard. How do you do it every time, but they used to have on Pierce her I'm thinking this because of their Siegel, we're sure vagabonds Siegel,
this thinking they had a thing there. in the eighties, then you can go in and sing along. Your favorite like Whitney Houston and make a cassette tape of yourself singing yet it was like visualized carry Oki one per Carol gave to no one, but then you had attained. You can like wasn't video car. Ok, can you not long ago that suddenly, after that would have cost five thousand dollars? That does not yet exist. That is awesome, but I feel like though they had those around and malls all over the country and then eventually became like us, because these videos pop up of kids, you doing that like that, must have become the video you can Gatt and then like member, how they would have like my team magazine and you and your sister had to sit in and then take a photo of it and show you on the cover of teen magazine. Yes, there's like big
the young girls version of the time person of the air thing as its India. It like a hot made. It covers that I, like you getting mad in those things, are the rich girl equivalent not same original events, the rich girl, equivalent of having to get a caricature drawn a view on fishermen's war which, like in the bottom of the barrel? Are you ready for your low self esteem? Beginning, yes, writers? How big the teeth are Georgia, yes, here here's. How like your head is like for my immunity. They give you a tiny body, yes like if you like, I like during the horses, that's a tiny body of tiny body on a tiny horny within Europe. Eccentric waited whatever you hate about yourself so I already had a big
is so it's like they can't figure out what to do with me because it was like there's are the caricature of the gigantic had suggested, but I don't know to do this girl elegantly I'd like you to make this remit your eyes. Bluer, like that's, gonna, hurt her feelings. How do the? How do we make this child hate herself or there s relies as you know, a lot about yourself to strike, while my eyes are like pools. May I, like so you're saying that's my real size faith. Yet this does not. Caricature LAO was for a long time like what you wanted. As that big lie pub had scanning, and I was a near by I'm a bad skinny body. A tiny horse golden gate in the back cowboy like we were hashtag. This is
that was the original, insecure work. There are thirty. Can everyone please post their caricature, dry or lair cover of team magazine photos from when they were kids fry hammerheads trap. Oh yeah, I was cowgirl, you have one as me as a fucking hell girl. I swear. I says from not marrying I'd, do have one use Yes, I have, one of the group of friends all decided one day. We were going to go to peer thirty, nine and You know who's in it. Legendary Holly, gardener, tampon suit. His story is going to say suffered greatly in retailing of the tampon took a story was my best front from six grade through high school so like you would relate hold it if he had set her full name. If you really hated her yes, exact made. No, no. That was just a bad moment in our relationship, but the shias- and you know the all stars of like seventh grade and what
it is one of those old fashioned cowboy pictures and spoke to me like a tintype right when we're all dressed up in costume, right, ok, singers, our day, Stephen there's no way you dont have a caricature of yourself from Azure came as a day s language Jurassic Park Day, right dinosaur. Yes, I do so here's arguments I posted on our, and can I just retail holder Stevens as Georgia sayings. We know you have one Stevens looking it's almost like, he was like a pantomime of a confused guy and the second I said Jurassic Park came snapped right into which just like oh yeah, I haven't well because my sister and I have one of us doing it, and then we re created it as adults like a few years ago, nights character or is it, has like in a green screen being like dinosaur? So we
easy adults. We had at least we have the middle beginning and hopefully end of what they put what we were able to dear children. Yes, complete. Yes, we see, we spend three general action. This is our family at the girl. Was too scared to get her a real caricature, though yours I only or too scared to find out What you're one major feature is: lemme. Ask you scared, so I could not spare arm George, I never yeah he was easy on me because I think I was like four and then at least tag. It lets you M M caricature How could we have been holding point? This is to get our own hashtag right. That's what you wanted Karen Europe's media language like on twitter hashtags, are straight up for nerds that never used to. It are not deny this diagram. I know
instruments. A completely different languages have to call this does tat. I just I guess I M M caricature is good for guideline in those are the ones we want big had little, but I want big had little body K year, look for potentially fake magazine cover? Or now I don't just so funny- I'd love to see that whatever they like the play area. Are we spent too much time on this just post it and TAT S? disagree. I think we can dig dig deeper America and also it makes me think of this too, because, like just to to argue with you. First We were definitely middle middle class, but my mother would always do this thing, we're like if we walked by the caricature person, she go you it's not worth it picks up that's it. Here's something Erech showed
like out at sight of her mouth, basically be like EDA Crasser Class, you're gonna, like you like it now. You won't like out by the tonnage and smart lady and she now really had a work with people I feel like till. I thank them think that they are making their own decision no mean and manipulate children. Yes, I dare into one or one give them two options make one of them: shitty make the other one, the one you want them to do the, and then you get what ever you. Why do you want to ask? Do you want to help mommy with laundry? That's all handwriting If anybody wants to take my class, let's wow, that's good enough. What how did we get on what we are talking about? How Things are superficial and some people speaking social. Maybe I have a correction because social ray, I told us it's in another, clarification. Because last week I talked about the book. I'm reading the icelandic Wee wee wee guess
norwegian it's got. I remember you by your says: Syringa Door, don't turn number yes and we guessed, sorts of places where this book must be from now right because Deborah Taylor, sixteen fifty four on Instagram said: yes, is from Iceland. You can tell if someone is Scandinavians lasting slash? Nordic if their last name has something at the end that resembles son or daughter like booter? Did you know Scandinavia is Jill. Then she goes on to give us a report. Scandinavia is Jill geographically considered. Norway, Sweden and Denmark, culturally, Finland and Iceland are included generally offer. And their territories like Greenland and the Faroe Islands are considered nordic countries. Maybe you can hit Reykjavik on your next tour and invite her to the show love you both so so There are other lives in Reykjavik. Yes, then I Reykjavik by the way, is
the capital of ice, and while I should have known that them now allow here's here's why I know in six and we had to do reports on countries of the world. I cannot tell the story again, even though it's not really a story, I love it and I got picked I can tell ass and the so clear, your name, I picked ever jar and you got to go hid their does Matt Bronco. He picks ITALY by ITALY's got everyone that all people battalion grandparents int into more swipes Ireland's God come on. Then it goes all the way down through the forty or sixty consuming less. I remember, however, many dense me, I pick Iceland last guess who was last Polly gardener. No, she and she got Malta. Only in this way pre internet pre, read this is any writing a pdf there's two lines about Malta. I fucking literally it, though
I barium couldn't help us. She was like nobody knows these countries. Nobody wants to hear about those, your teacher, what works and what Mr Drill already doing over there. So I end digging up as much as I can find out and become quite interested in isolated, because I was like wait. A second green when's the one they re offered an iron railing, we actually to Iceland. I did a full report- became a true fan of Iceland's call in twenty five years later. Iceland has all the rage, and I'm just like that. I will tell you about Reykjavik, not vice or well. So I remember you is a good icelandic book. It's part of it takes place in Reykjavik, it's fucking, creepy issue, I highly recommend I'm gonna. Look at his head sounds familiar. I feel like there might be an undeserved movie yet said Mary like as I am reading, and I like I can picture the movie beyond my head daughter. A little boy goes boy Gustafson
stuff, daughter years nearest author, yours doctor, furthermore, one day for tour hell. Yes, what are you have? What are you doing, Have the following: oh shit, I repeat- and I declare I have started the podcast which now this is weird, and maybe you can explain this to me, Georgia ok, I'm podcast is called West cork. Oh right, It's a true crime, legendary true current forecasts that I've heard about for so long only recently became available on Itunes. Biogas says it was audible, original that
recommended three years ago them easily easily that it is so. I can't believe you haven't it's one of those ones that everyone's but caring. I really like it and you're like, but now that no care, I think you know now and then, ten years later you go you don't I found I found no nice. Would you know it? You need to hear about a needle and its excellent, it one of those angering one because its ok still remember things come out of it since it came out, but it takes place in Ireland. Prescott, Ireland, the beautiful Don podcast at last, a wonderful true, cried box. I didn't know you couldn't listen, Asha, audible, so that's ass, yet it just came it just became. We just want wide and then I was like. I know this though. How do I know it was they do it and obviously what what
so one place, I would go do if I'm like how it would have told me who told you I'm sure let those like for some reason it worlds. it was three years ago which hangs. It was one hundred years ago, my brain, but we have to act in a lot of that might do you have to listen to this milling. Ok and friends us at this planets like it's, it's gonna be from one or the either ass to each other or a bunch of other people. So, though, or literally two thousand the other people who know our taste very well, but I will say this: what a listen, even separate from if your interested, not interested in true crime or just a basic story. This almost goes beyond a lot of that. There is like a kind of like small town psychology element to it and it is True, like just a quilt of all the different irish accents. There's a guy in their there's. An irish detective.
I kept thinking was from France because his accent would go into this like she's, isn't but she's, French she's French, this protected is from, I believe they said he was from go aware, something I can't remember. His accent was, unlike anything ever wow, I irish style, but it like would go into these other places and come back around here. I think that this is how this brogue turns and all these then this is an all different areas. This isn't narrative. This is like real people cause it's true crime, so Yeah, that's got, I may add area, that's a great one. It's I'm just almost done, I'm on the last like last, have less episode, but I do that thing where I can't I can't I'll tell you what if there has been any up it since it came out because I have a logo on. I will now also, did want to redo one coil, which you may or may not remember her, but there's a witness.
who was old, who testified to seeing something or you know you're ever some. Some story- and but it is all too they were trying to act like he shouldn't have justified tell me I need to be in a home for the bewildered you know Ceaseless saying that you didn't trust me with a mad about. Can it be I needed he had a home further, the wheeler, oh, my god, you they have those. Just if your generally bewildered you get to go, stay in a hospital, see someone stupid doing a damn thing in here like I, don't even understand why he would try that another. Let's go home, let's go Will you be older, may yet be well dear to me. Well, due to be out in the world, he happened to be in a home for the bewildered coming. How does a home for the bewildered soon So that's my most prominent. Just love when there's a good podcast,

This issue has to turn into a different station to distract herself. and then a little later that night, the phone rings, so Ruth is afraid it might be the hospital saying something bad about ed when she answers. Instead, she hears the voice of a strange man who says: is this Ruth Smock from a Fort Scott Kansas and she is surprised me air her maiden name, Anti hurl old home town. She says yes and he said as I know all about that night any then reads the article from an October nineteen forty six issue of the Kansas newspaper, the forts got Tribune all about Ruth. horrifying attack, my so the man on the other end, he reads: oh article, two are, then he asks if Ruth still got her brand.

I didn't have a heart attack the absence from in a car accident injury that had happened the before he has to stay in the hospital another week for observation, which means that, Ruth is alone in the house for another week now and she's hearing another ominous phone call from this man, but none come when Ed's least, and back at home rose, decides not to bother him with the story of that call and just decided to put the whole thing behind her, but then later that summer, she's at work when an end
well appears on her desk with her name on it. She opens it to find that same newspaper article that the man had read on the phone to her, so she rips it up and throws it in the trash and then the calls start again, rule keep some astute secret from Ed so when she answered the phone and here's the man's voice. She immediately hangs out and sometimes Edel answer, but he is basically the color just hangs upon her. so then a nineteen August of banking, seventy seven she's window shopping in downtown, Wichita and No, this is a man.

She looks at him asked maybe he's in his late forties five. Ninety skinny he's wearing a plaid sport, shirt and genes White Canvas shoes and he has black hair growing at the temples, so she
It takes a picture of him with her mind, but she ignores have basically and she just she just keeps, talking, but he keeps talking to her and he says you work for the phone company, don't you What do you do there?

So then, for four months later, in October of Night in seventy. Eight Ruth gets enough.

This is actually the third stab Blue all that she got there's two more in her back that she didn't even feel my guy. So she she drives or so to a gas station phone booth and there she dials the net. or that she's memorized to six sixty four one, eight one which is lieutenant RO at Skis, boss. Captain owl damage This is his direct line and before We can finish introducing herself, he picks up she's
Hello. My name is that whatever he's like, I know who you are what's going on and then she planes it too. So he sends an officer to where she is. But she's so worried that the poets gonna find her there that she drives home, which is only five minutes away. Captain damages already called ed and basis. and what's going on so by the time she gets home Ed's waiting for on the porch astonishing, gets there. He gets in drives her to the hospital.

Her story makes the news once again and there were the reporter covering the story for the Wichita Eagle Beacon Newspaper is named Fred man. He reports the Sudan and then in a follow up article. He includes the police sketch of the poet and for that he begins to get.
Threatening letters from the poet so the day after Ruth gets out of the hospital, one of the nurses tells the police that a man who resembles the police, sketch of the poet visited the nurses station several times, while Ruth was in their care. as a precaution, lieutenant drew out ski stays Et Ruth S house for two days, just to make sure there. Ok, nothing happens. Why is there so much September nineteen, seventy nine, the police have no leads and is growing desperate to protect his wife. His employer puts up a three thousand dollar reward on the families behalf for information leading to the poets capture, but Ed also try contacting the poet himself. He actually puts an ad out in the which taught Eagle Even that says poet tell me: What I owe you are asked and the poet risks On two hour s at the price of my service to stay alive can now be settled at five,
but this isn't enough information for aid to know how much that is right, what it's best to mean they go back and for several times, but none of it leads anywhere and it doesn't it doesn't. Nothing happens. In October of nineteen seventy nine. The newspaper puts out a statement saying that they have been receiving letters from the poet directly to them. In one. He writes quote make sure that you dont confuse the executioners again referencing the rumours that the poet and Bt K are the same person, so the public of course, is following this story like word for word, there's rumors around town calls to the police constantly Roland with alleged poet sightings. None of them bring any leads, are evidence so lieutenant at ski, assigns eight off
serves to go under cover around downtown and they have Ruth where a wire whenever she goes out it just in time is he approaches are downtown again, there's no sign of him, but more letters with palms in them turn up on the families porch and in their mailbox and at night they can hear strange noises from their garage. But when they go out there, they they don't catch. Anybody on Christmas Eve, nineteen, seventy, nine, the families phone lines are cut and that's the sea and time that's happened so there any out of options. Route agrees to undergo hypnosis to see if she can recall any other details from our tax, a psychologist name. Doktor Donald shred works with Ruth for two sessions until they it's the matter for kidnapping and her demeanour shifts from com to destroy she cries out. I want out of a car, I want out of the car doktor shrank after them. this these sessions? He concludes that whoever the poet is quote it's likely
He's had psychological treatment and possibly has been an estate institution. End quote: but he also believes in the man's highly intelligent so in January of nineteen eighty lieutenant drew out ski is promoted to vice. and organised crime, so a man named captain. My kill takes over Bruce case soon after Captain Hill receives a letter of his own from the poet a line which reads there was once a captain who had an asshole for a heart, how really was. It really is a visual so you're asking had forged a strong friendship with the families, in fact, went to the same church. They that basically the same political views and so drunk in his wife one within and Ruth on, like double date of our times, they socialize together
captain bill has no personal relationship with them at all, so it gives him the Manage of an objective point of view is first move. After taking over the cases to install a surveillance cameras in the families backyard. He has. officers posted in the families. Dining room on around the clock watch checking the cat, where's monitors for any suspicious activity, Ruth feels, guilty that all of these officer have to endure such a boring job, so she's constantly making them big goods and sometimes even read some of the poets letters allowed to them for entertainment and so on, letter later on Valentine's day, Ruth gets a menacing Valentine, themed message and a second letter containing a strip of red bandanna, and there also letters being sent to local businesses, the utility companies get letters instructing them to shut off families. Us and power. The health debate, It gets a letter claiming that Ruth Findley is spreading Stds around town, the local.
mortuary gets a letter threatening that Ruth Quote would be requiring them soon. End quote he aches, Now it is driving route to and from work, so she's, never by herself, and at this point it then three year. Only so the police looked into more than three hundred people of entrance. All of them are dead, ends, They install another security, camera the families home this time, hidden in a bird house in the back yard, nothing happens So in the spring of nineteen eighty they decide to use Ruth as bait. They have her where a bullet proof vest and why walk around in downtown Wichita, while Sir under cover. Cops are patrolling the area, but nothing comes of it then on June third, nineteen, eighty Ruth gets a letter from the poet that's postmark. From Oklahoma City, so the Wichita Police car ACT Oklahoma, city, police. They discover that anonymous woman called into report a recent poet citing so the is closing in on a man has recently been fired,
for his job in Wichita and there certain that this must be the poem, but when they bring and for a lineup Ruth says that although he does look similar, it's just not him so by July, a fourth nineteen eighty, this stories, National NEWS, the rumours that the poet is Bt K, continue to spread and play. is actually have a psycho linguistic expert named Doktor Murray, as Myron examine the handwriting in his in the letters I think I know so He determined that while it's, the handwriting is actually similar Bt Kase its highly unlikely that they're the same person but the public can't let go of the idea. So the next few months, the stranger and stranger item start showing up on the friendly's front. Porch an ice pick Broken glass, molotov cocktails, firecrackers cigarettes, even hair Christmas time the families are watching tv when their jolted by the sound of their window, breaking ed, runs out onto the porch too.
Find a burning rate has been hung from their front window and the heat from cause the window to explode in a rage ed runs out into the street with a pair of garden. Sheer screaming that he's gonna kill the poet she's, so they can things continue like this into nineteen eighty one, the wished on PETE Police are widely criticised by the public, who can't believe they haven't been able to catch. The poet and they also simultaneously aren't catching beating Kay near so now, chief, These Richard low money in. or La Lamoignon. but I'm gonna, Salem Onion is he's left funding off questions from the press about his departments, ineptitude lemon yawns, annoyance turns personal on Friday September forth in eighteen, eighty one when the pole it sends a letter to his wife. Oh, she said up
la Manon who has had no personal involvement in the case of yet takes it over himself so high on September. Fifth, he takes all the pope the case files home and pours. Oh, for them, it takes them several days, but at the end of his research key believes he knows who the poet is. He calls Have it meaning for select officers on September, Eleventh nineteen, eighty one and he begins to explain his very secret theory. He says he. finds it strange that Oliver, its attacks have been in public places, yet Are our zero witnesses to any of these attacks. It's also strange that, despite the all at all the hours of round the clock surveillance, no, officers and no neighbours have ever seen a trace of a trespasser, not even footprints, on the please property and they live on a dead end street. When the survey HANS camera is installed in the families backyard. All the
action most to the front porch and then, after Ruth abduction, the only footprints the investigating officer find at the park, our roofs and one very this stabbed, instead of calling on one one at the phone booth like a regular person worthier, she calls the direct line for central investigations. The officer in the room. simply. What I'm saying is he thinks that the poet is Ruth family as soon as you said, he is able to look at it with the new chief they will look at it without any personal em out, because he's not render their out is like he doesn't have biased. He knows it's her yet and then I get me and I would like to say a meaning shut up shut up. This is it exactly the way writer Corey Mead laid, this are less article out. So the entire time you think you're just reading this case. They
you ve, never heard of before a tragic Norman. I that time it gets to that exactly thing: yeah we're you're, just like this woman is being hideously. victimize. Why have I never heard this story before so, but here's the thing. All of these police officers. The Wichita pdf think think this guy is nuts. They think the chief It is totally lost. It all no way bunch thousands Indra back then re like. Why would anyone hitherto themselves right exactly it's! It's kind of thing that, yes, no one had ever talked about anything like that detailed before early, but also they know Ruth. They have come to me for years, they cannot believe, should be the kind of person who would put her husband to that who in who did that, please to herself yeah, that's What she's like like that? She's a kind quiet you know,
bearing upstanding lady, and what would her motive be? It didn't make sense to them. It didn't add, but since Le Mannion is the boss, they have to follow his theory. So beginning Monday September fourteenth nineteen eighty one law money and set up a tree before our surveillance on the families, with officers trading off twelve hours shifts in Van two blocks away from the families house at the escape mall. This time, without the families. Knowing here though, three days later, at eight thirty in the morning on September, seventeenth, the surveillance police capture photos of Ed driving Ruth up to the mailbox at the escape mall depositing several pieces of meat, so they run over and basically it takes until one thirty to get a postal,
officer at sorry, the postal inspector to open that mailbox, and inside. They find two letters from the poet but too much I'm is passed between one ruse drop the male off and when they were finally able to get it open so tat, quickly. Some one else could have mailed those letters. Clearly, Deauville heard TAT. Those are the letter she put in so this way, nine days later, they get another the opportunity once more ed drives their car up to the same mailbox. Ruth leans out the passenger side to drop the mail, and but this time an undercover cop pulls up right after them blocks the mailbox pretending that have hard drugs. So no one else can use this mailbox until they get the coastlines back down. There are great so this time there mixed in with the families. Regular mail is another letter from the poet once
this is confirmed. They re seal the envelope and they let the male carrier deliver that letter to assemblies sneaky sneaky, so the next day, which is Sunday September. Twenty seventh ed brings the poet letter to the police, as he does with all of the poet letters they receive, but then the please launch a search for more of the families, male everywhere businesses. They sent payments to. You notes like mail at her work and they basically inspect all the envelopes and their able to match the edges of the stamps Indyk, because I'm used to get pulled out of you and you would tear there'd be perforated little yells or you pull the stamps apart. They amount the two here airways and they see that all of these stamps are from the same book I can. They can put them all back in so
police game permission to search Ruth's office at work and there they find the book of a book of poetry paper with the poet handwriting on it- and a red bandanna concealed in a tissue and routes, ask. All of this is enough. To warrant a search of the families house, so on September, twenty eight, while the Phillies or away they search the house, but they act. They find no hard evidence inside the house summer. Then too, his later on Wednesday September, thirtieth, she Islam Onion and his wife share and get another letter from the poet and at the bottom of the page, the pages torn off so through microscopic fracture analysis. They are able to determine that the torn off peace from roots trash cannot work matches the peace of the bottom of the letter that Le Monnier received solid gagged, hey. I got this letter. As the case so
next day on October, first nineteen, eighty one, the police, ask Ed tick I'm into the station to pick up the latest batch of poet, letters which is what usually happens, but when he gets there, Captain Hill and Detective Jack Leon take Ed into an interrogation room and they start asking questions now aids confused the speedy cooperates, the basically the office we spend two hours asking ed about his life, his up, bringing all the way up until then, getting other harassment, nineteen, seventy seven and thanks to get the idea of basically is Ed complicit in his oil zelie plan all my arm Finally, Captain Hill tells Ed that he knows when the poet is Ed says why help the hell you do, let's go get em, but then Hill shows Ed pictures of his wife dropping letters in the mail box at the mall and explains it there can confirm that route is that, in fact, the letter writer eddies An utter shock. Hill asks if here
greater polygraph tests, so he can be eliminated as a suspect at agrees. He passes the test here, never involved it was all Ruth by her society. I got bad news for high now, so at five o clock that same afternoon, the hill calls rules and has come down to the station to look at mugshots to see if she can identify the poet which is a key I'm in practice for her. At this point I am, she agrees: EL walks or through the same interrogation procedure that he walked Ed through any finally asks Ruth. If she wrote any of the poets letters she says no, but and he shows her the surveillance photos of herself mailing the letters and says that he can prove she did she. Finally, She says she has a vague memory of sitting in her basement writing letters, but when she thinks back
She can't tell what's a dream and works reality. My dear, I was hoping you re an essay they'd shore, a mug shot line up in hers was in it, and then you know when she's, like theory is right, there Yet basically, he ask he then ass. He switches as tone and gets me in and ass, sir. If the attack went from one, she was sixteen years old. If that even really happened, she swears it did, but she gets done to get really upset. He switches back to a gentle town and basically says quote see. Why it's time it's time to tell me why I'm not eight years. I want to know why you're doing mass so after some product, Ruth eventually admits to everything the letters. The calls. The odd objects like at her house even her own stabbing, but she said as it wasn't a deliberate plan as much as it was kind of this fuzzy memory that she can bear
they recall basically it's she's, really ashamed and she's almost she's confused, but she's really ashamed and when when Hill says to her there's no hard feelings between you and me Ruth says there b. I wish I was dead. Oh my god, so she confirmed The air was not involved at all, but she makes it clear. She needs medical help. She said she thinks she's, crazy and then she says quote: I tried to figure out what was wrong, but I couldn't stop it so that night she's taken too Psychiatric Board of Saint Joseph Hospital for treatment after me, debate, the watchdog police make the controversial decision not to press charges against a roof site. that she was suffering from severe mental distress and had no malicious intent. She did, however, costs department. Almost four hundred thousand dollars for all their investigative efforts over the past four years, and
If Lamoignon does not agree with this decision, not to press charges, he considers her a dangerous criminal wow. Basically Ruth those into therapy with a doctor, Andrew Pickens and it goes on for the next seven years and she's. Finally, able to uncover the source of her issues, which takes her a while to get too and then takes her years to process afterwards, but an assent. What's interesting kind of fascinating about it ass she does, it using the same technique that the poet does. She begins. Writing poetry about it to finally unwinds ever, like all of those things that she was writing in the poets poem they all kind of pull into her reality and but she she basically had faced along
early childhood trauma of sexual abuse by a neighbor when she was only four years old and it was a man who used red bandanas high her up, oh I'm a guy like there was actual symbolism and her Why? How our so He basically says that one that happened to her and it went on for a couple minds that she would remember quote unquote floating off to Heaven, which is a comment it which is a common dissociated tactic that the brain uses in times of severe trauma. So it's a defence tactic, paradox still arise that allowed to develop this kind of a separate idea. As the poet and then Nineteen, seventy seven when it has his heart attack and she's alone for the first time in our life. While the Bt K is like a gun, it basically kill
people around town and no one knows who he is basically her brain switches back into this dissociated mode and distress, she. Basically, it's like this cry for help weight. So did the third a teenage attack happen, yeah, ok, so that personally, that's it The answer is you now. As far as we know, and basically seems like that, the police in that town, if you re like that attack, alone, as a teenager, would have triggered that reaction from Bt Kay because it's a similar thing you breaking in their women's houses and murder. Tired, Merlot either that was could have all of the Amazon. It's all. It's all horrible parallels to her life and if she was repressing it and then they attack she was kind of able to combat I can, then she has this marriage. That's really
solid for her dino. It's this really strong, great, our relationship family. She built for thirty years. Everything is like go great and then this thing happens. That's like shock. After yeah, you know so the only person who doesn't believe this theory is chief Lamoignon, would later say quote, I think she's lying. She knew everything she was doing unquote while No one in Russia, family or friendship. Circle believes that at all, in fact, Ed stands by her their marriage. Last sir, this horrible experience and she was quoted as saying it's been hard on Ed, but he the kindest person I know and he's been very supportive, but also her friends and neighbors rallied by her side. Her neighbor, Emma Dillinger is quoted in that people magazine article saying Ruth told me
her story and gave me the option of cutting off our friendship, but all I I had to do was comfort her. Oh my god. It's all avarice love, while ones like basically had that same reaction and after five years and treatment, you feel strong enough to talk about her story on a local like new station and after she basically tells her side of the story theirs. They start the stations get starts, getting calls and ninety eight percent of them were compassionate loving and completely support him. Her, like an overwhelming majority, were just like this is If so it turns out that the Pope of Wichita was not a violent mad man, but a woman who didn't even know herself. How but she needed to be heard on May there yes, twenty nineteen Ruth we passed away at the age of eighty nine, and that is the
fascinating story of Ruth thinly. Also known as the poet of which it will have five, what the fuck give the creditor. Person has suggested a t again because brilliantly ITALY Sarcastic read that article by Corey made first on medium dot com and sent to the long. To me I mean I also think that part of me hesitated- and I think I felt like I may have begun to read this story, one time when we are on the road, but but I hate the aid talking about a girl this far into a story where oh, what a female victim is lying because it does yes, it doesn't happen that often the out and that kind of thing of like these false reports. It's it's it's an. I think it One of the reasons that it's not a very well known story is because This is its as
easy as a serial killer. It's as undoubtedly here it's as you know it. Very common for women to be stock is very common, for women to be raped is very common for women to be attacked and abused. So this is a true anomaly that then kind of grew into a whole other crazy. I mean Wichita it almost at it. I don't know it's fast enough, so many lawyers there so many layers to it in every eye. Good. point, but that doesn't mean a story. Shouldn't be told an we tell em a huge amount of types of stories on this high cast ends in re. This is one of those examples, but it's not it's not. rule at so I think it's it deserves isn't this broadcast, and that was incredible. Job telling the story. The medium writer did an incredible job, so
it happened, happened, here's the thing had happened and it didn't ended, in a pitchforks and torches mob here, namely it ended with people going. What Why would someone do this? This is baffling yeah because there weren't. She was the only victim and ed yeah and then the wasted time, but it's like. But what was she doing? It doesn't make sense, it doesn't add up and then it's like butter, Nobody has the reasons and you know crazy, a great job. Thank you, yeah. I know it's crazy.

The tale. I want to know the truth about the cocaine there before I, therefore, I see the movie its truth. It's legend is truly a legend. Ok on them running of September. Eleventh nineteen. Eighty five, Mr Fred, am Myers of Knoxville Tennessee woke up walked out of his home on island, home Pike and South Knoxville and found dead man in his back yard
so. Mr Myers were called hearing a crash around midnight night than before, and it turned out the crash she had heard had been that of the dead man flock falling from the sky and landing in his backyard. Oh, Ah, yes, horrible! It is a horrible start, so the body of the man who was dressed in catchy and was sprawled out on his back over an unopened parachute. There is no obvious injuries, aside from a trickle of dried blood from each of his nostrils, but other than that he looked find a third these are age and found that the dead man was wearing a bullet proof, vest and night vision goggles and was carrying Two different pistols ammunition, a stiletto knife, freeze, dried food and said ex Cougar ends which, a golden fines. Yes,
look. You drag labour reference, the forty five hundred dollars, cash ideas and multiple names, a membership card to them. I am a jockey club and several inspirational epigrams, which I know you love epigrams, epigram yeah, like you mean like keep storm behind like a mighty bird. That's right keep on track in the sand, but the gray I don't know, I only let me read you one eyed, seventeen epigram, because this has been one of the ones he had on him. Wait a second isn't epigram the same thing forward and backwards, because now mine wouldn't work will now apply like a mighty eagle, won't work. Let me spell out backwards in turn. Ok, this is one that one read there, the only one tactical principle not subject to change it is to end. Like the maximum amount of loans, death and destruction on the enemy and a minimum amount of time, because I got Chuck Norris type of like saying that the late that they live by now liquor
Here's what I only guy! It sounds like that: I am sure that you'd be right up against in line at seven eleven and then, once you read that a beggar hammered out a fuckin near claiming to be, then you back away and you're, just like I didn't realize you're here, to do the most damaging short like Mr. Can I touch your none checks and others do not so you're buying x ray so that He had that on him, poetry, Annie, duffel bag with about seventy five pounds of cocaine. That was ninety five percent pure. And I wanted to night- is one of the like in my head picture: seventy five pounds of cocaine which is hard to do with powder right. So then I looked up like how any pounds of chocolate bars, would that be. But then I thought ok, how much of what the kid way, seventy pounds. So I looked it up in an average tenure female ways. Seventy five pounds. So that tell me
cocaine if you held an average nine year old, female in one hand and cocaine in the other the way, the sand. You can also do it. Basically of your doing, five pound bags, a sugar but cocaine, and there would be about fourteen maggots. That's a lie. No wonder is parachute and open, and if it's the ninety five percent pure, you can get a baby laxative and cut it in there and you can have like. Then you have like thirty five pounds: a cocaine get all the kids at the junior college and you're an carbo baby nineties, Karen just snack up on those hard ass. It was like her an idea, Amy an flick man be cool though police can't came and were like? Why is the scene was like baffling to every one, of course, not annex agents can t a customs were very baffled by this, the innocent looking
backyard scene? I guess it was an innocent looking any not innocent. With the current ran out of you, I'm telling you anytime Krueger answer involved, and this is an inner national issues that we have or its aspire Moby starring, Brad Pitt, either way there where back for sale It's a by astern in our aim is to identify the body and even then they still have few theories as to what the hell happened, but they do identify him as Andrew Carter's Thornton the seconds of Kentucky. So Let me tell you about Andrew Carter, Thornton, the second as you can tell by his name. Yes, he came from a wealthy family he's royalty, so he is born on October. Third, nineteen EP four, forty forward: a Carter and Peggy Thornton in. Southern Bourbon County Kentucky Card Peggy, had a grand old time being wealthy and breeding horses at their study farm luckiest.
So Andrew corrupt Living, a privilege lies an election. in Kentucky. He attended Pritchett, prestigious private schools, along with us Lexington Blue blood's. He went to the military academy, so wanting military academy and then join the army as paratrooper. And he became an air force officer. He earns purple. Her, you know, is on his way up and action is less serious career. He becomes a police officer in the Lexington Kentucky Police Force, narcotics division. So here is in eighteen, seventy seven he resigns because he now it's to practice law. So he goes to the University of Kentucky LAW School and apparently the law apply to everyone, but himself because, as a nineteen, eighty federal indictment alleges he was part of a drug and weapons smuggling ring called the company and it so we're partly involved other former Kentucky
police officers as while, so maybe he went to last going to be like having to keep this business going, and let us not forget reasons so. Tina. Eighty wine he's arrested along with twenty five other men. They were attempting to still guns from a naval base, Fresno California risky and for attempting to traffic thanks ten pounds of marijuana and to the county interesting. Diego Fresno here I thought, drugs lived in France. Now, why do they have to smuggle a man a yes I say from like Kentucky here: no one no one in Kelly. Wants that k? Why we thank Mr Seeber for yourselves in Europe on your style, horses, so d, agent robber Bridewell, who says he worked with Thornton on narcotics investigations and early seventies, described him as a quote:
double o seven paramilitary type, personality and adventurer, driven by Adrenalin, Russia's who became bored with being a cop. So we got this guy. He thinks he's James Bond or Chuck Norris. That seems like a cross between the two add he is bored with even being a narcotics cop, what chance pretty entertaining and fun. If you have an stressful and stress yeah like what yeah you need but an leave out so not enough for some people never enough. Never initially Andrea was given to felony charges of conspiracy to import and distribute a controlled substance to which he plaid not guilty, but he fled the state, and then it was down heavily armed North Carolina and brought back to California to face reduced misdemeanor drug charges. So he got his charges. Super were reduced, let's go back. talk about how he was wealthy. That's probably happened and Height point tee to eighty.
He pleaded no contested. The charges were sentenced to six months and months in prison and find five hundred dollars He also had his law licence revoked, so Karen this law s brush with the law is all it took four Andrew to see the error of his ways straighten up fine Jesus, and not caused the death of a black there right. Lie turns out fine Jesus Zella now eliminate Betty desiring was his former wife and she said about him quote: he was He was a sign of a bad man. She shot out Epistles America, this Simon It had a shitty Kentucky. We always tiring Gary allow we now she said he was a filter a call, incredibly disciplined, extremely spiritual and loyal warrior with his code of ethics who thrived on excitement.
Then she let her candle on his on her under his headshot yeah. She pictures image that guy. I think she liked him so she likes like. I did your doctors belch nurse she growled at me because I just realized. I didn't feed her dinner and identity effort to cheat sticks to shoot beyond it. Peter dinner. Now, chicken makeup, it's like those on bout boom but that is just ass. You might wow allowed our yeah just Gimme have now you got it on September nine. Ninety, maybe five Andrea, was now forty. He, unless the help of his don't be dumpy too surprised by this, karate instructor turn a bodyguard a man named Bill Leonard so
the pair along with a third man who is a colombian man, that bill had apparently never met vague Cessna Fora for airplane, so big alleges that he just got on the plane. He didn't know what they were doing and while in rule according to Bill and ninety ninety interview with former knocked still news, Sentinel Managing editor Tom Chester Leonards. While he knew of Andrews Shady drug fuelled we now pass era and reputation here now now that this light was to involve drugs. He didn't know, wasn't me off sir, and then said that Andrew had sprung the plot on him mid flight as the plane flu. Where the Bahamas it was raining and dark any. I guess
mass tankers is colombian, stranger on board with us to that he died last island error getting out yet I am now is like whatever yeah just jump. Let's adventure strangers on assassinated. We thought you earlier last thing LAB Andrew, no Andrew told Leonard the plan that they would pick up four hundred kilograms of cocaine in Colombia and smuggle it into the. U S, although I can see the logic of being like don't fuck and tell Andrew the tarmac it we have to be in the air he's going to one of his classic freak out just two he always goes along with any plan Andrews. The Andrew is the what's his name. Andrews. The main guy bill is the foil. Whatever does matter who's got the pilgrims area Andrew There's got to prevail as karate bills,
This whole thing sounds like Danny Mcbride and James Franco got stone together and wrote this up. it doesn't seem realize it now not surprise you that Elizabeth Banks part of everyone's ok. I gotta make this media. Thank you just cast it. Somebody out there to have been, if he had told me, hey Bill, we're going to Colombia to smuggle four hundred kilos of cocaine of America? I would have gone yeah right, thou it about me, another right there, he tricked me there is no way in Hell. I mean anybody. That knows me and Lexington knows there's no way. I would do anything like this. I was a nobody. and then he winked at the reporter genetic bag of cocaine and walk and tightened up his brown belts karate chastity to look. They sit still while the cutback, cocaine and ran up at the opposite direction, to judge his Joe and all was well many said:
about Andrea when he told him about this plan, he said the look on his face was hard to explain here smiling, but he had a very intense look in his eyes and he was watching me very closely my heart, cooking in a word I would love it. Bill actually was just the spoil who had no clue about it at all. It was like. Doesn't local Lexington dared? He really liked. He just not Andrew was the coolest and has come along, even though he knew Billy, get up somehow any dead, yeah, ok, but having to be someone who council's plans. Apparently they move. I'm with their mission, then picked up the freight that was in Colombia and were some moreover, Florida when Bill claim that they heard federal agents talking over the radio about following their plane, breaker breaker
that's a bill and who have the picture s. Bill had been vomiting over an open nor our guidelines, because that's how inexperienced was on planes poor Bell, who I am sure in August, without either going to the Bahamas analysis, flattering marv. ah, but you still can't tell that's the Tommy Bahama promise People can pick on yourself away. So here Here's that she freaks out, he stops nominating and he opened the door and kicked three bags of cocaine out now, while I must get rid of this cocaine and we're being followed Andrew chorus being a businessman freaks Odin is like he's the Hates, a party thousand music, what the fuck are you doing, and the two and start to argue. Ok on bills,
does quote right at that time. When it looks like we're gonna rip each other's throats out, he just starts laughing. I don't know it happened. I started laughing the next thing. I know we're both rolling around in the plane laughing. That's probably the safety hazard right. A tears coming out of our eyes He turned around and said. I'm really sorry forgetting you involved in this. I can see this is not your thing. You're, a family man. Just do what I tell you and I'll get you out. That's a quote I didn't just like and make that this is. I am sorry, but this is also if you ve ever seen the Viking Pieter Feith. A movie and Alan Mark and movie the in laws. This is the very similar plot, the animals. This is like. We ve cocaine. Bear aspect of this story was the best part of the story, so we never bothered looking it out. I completely, in my mind, connected to a totally different story. You did the full version area and just in my mind, was like oh yeah that must be connected to that thing,
I know now of story when their amendment, with a bare dying on cocaine, was going to be even back, get that it was like a surmised perfectly in that general. The original email, where there are just like this thing happened, but what's important, is that the early in order to boil down, I meant to give credit to the first person to person whose hometown me read, because they like really brought it in all our lives and deserve full credit forgot to do that and I'm sure It's impossible to find at this point, it's impossible, it's impossible. I have it even possible: that's your etc. It's from SAM no other. Let's just say, I'm, SAM and Lexington know your screaming your name out there and we heard it said. Thank am work as it was about eight, my mother's Ex boyfriend, the cocaine cowboy. So I may dated one of the people

I do this here's this put this unclear that and he can I just really quickly with great rage here, Sir That's not shocking coil. As someone as someone who is tat tissue our call here by being, in in a bay in Hawaii with my stuff on and my experts, like. No, no. You have to like such an it to your face and just using you don't mention any of this guy at any time before, like you, don't you awaiting until were I'm treading in thirty foot water. Before you start to tell me things and needs, and now they are you scared
you're in the shark. Essentially I hate the ears, I really resent people for bad teachers because they, if they already know it than you in their mind, you know exactly- are you should underhand take like they? Don't even understand that you all understand the words that are connected to it, that our like out part of government like a religion bill who didn't want to be involved in a drug trafficking situation in the first place now has to learn how to fucking skydive under pressure is I've there's always a cigarette, and first of all, we have the ground at the very beginning. Is it a poster? Is it just? Is it on a hat style? We'd go in these areas, we gotta get an old school leg, inspirational photo of sky diver and get that quote. Monitoring is already making it as we're talking get that terrible ethic, tat
and put it over the ground on the ground. You want, like a hologram but just to cited, get a hologram get a whole, Hologram Le Bill tell the story himself, a Holler amabel, but the next my favorite murder live. Show you got bill. Onstage, ok, and then Robert Cartouche em to close. Ok, I get so it's a gleam Andrew ties. The remaining duffel bag of CO came to his body within Ireland bag containing to put that his whole kit that diesel later found dead with spoiler, so they ice so they prepared a jump as the plane on autopilot now flies over Naxa. So, poor, Belgium's first he landed in the word. Hard is always on their lands, hard near Knoxville, downtown Island home Airport, about three miles from downtown. She assortment too.
to walk to the grocery store, call a cab and then gave him the address where he was going to meet Thorntons girlfriend at the high hotel. I wonder if it SAM's Fuckin mom yeah. Perhaps so they go to the the higher hotel with his girlfriend to wait for Andrew to show up- but he never shows up so let's go back act to the morning where the guy finds the dead body in the back yard that is identified is Andrew. Andrews. Pocket is a key and they were able to match the key. The tale number on the key to the wreckage of a plant which crashed into a mountain and Clay County Carolina. They have, founded on autopilot and it had landed about sixty miles away from where they jumped that's dangerous, so dangerous just to let the poor and go off by itself totally irresponsible, especially their over Knoxville. That's like human humans live there so
when the cops or the investors have found Andrews body. Of course, if another cocaine on him- and there are like there's gotta- be marked, cocaine, Thou didn't like Then the plan and they searched the surrounding areas and found two hundred and twenty pounds a veneer of marijuana, of cocaine hanging from a parachute in a tree, in fact, then County Georgia. They found Map close food. And all that stuff, I'm a couple days later, more duffel bag. of cocaine were found months later in northern Georgia, soaked cocaine everywhere, it's a fucking, every Waxlike, confetti cocaine cocaine, Easter Egg Heine survive through the mountains, so they were, they were found months later, but before or that a black bear stumbled upon on the cocaine.
The jury. Is our friend cocaine bear spotlight hat? Can now it's the soul. I wish my baby lightest go down: spotlight, ons, cocaine, mare, just in case there are wandering over the phone is not high wire. Well, my daybreak But there's a pile of powder show there well, a local hunter who, sadly, has never been identified because hero had found the dead bare and told us friends about it, but none of them report it to authorities cause they're hunters in Georgia and they don't, I think, mingle with the authorities there like mine. your business. Exactly so TAT three two weeks for the story to finally trickle down
your game and fish agent. Who then told the agents at the Georgia Bureau instigation and they discovered, bears body on December twentieth so that bear you know much as it hits lived in our hearts and minds. It essentially snorted up a bunch of coke and died kind of on the spot sounds like a giant. Immediately, outdated south now, listen, let's keep in our hearts and minds and in many areas and credible animation that he did of this. That's fucking classic one in every Wednesday rights that they had a grand old time. It was so much fun if I'd lose the wooden. Creatures came together and got why a medical eggs. are conducted an autopsy on the bare and sound retail tail sign of a massive overdose tossing together surreal. RO, hemorrhaging respiratory failure, hypothermia, Reno failure, stroke and heart failure.

Yet I say it. I get it so, but that Medical examiner was so impressed with the bear and its states that that, despite everything, the bears body was actually in good shape. So he was like you now would be a pity just throw this the cream air cause of a body, a hunting body who was attacks at our missed him, arrest, and so the bears tax Taxidermy taxidermy Ized that sword and put on display,
