Marcus Fiesel Murder Story on TV Sunday Night on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall”

Marcus Fiesel Murder Story on TV Sunday Night at 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.

It was August 15, 2006 when Liz and husband David Carroll said on  that 3 year old Marcus Fiesel disappeared in an Anderson Township, OH park. This sparking a search by thousands of volunteers that lasted several days. Marcus’ mom Liz Caroll tearfully begged people to help find her son, all the while she knew exactly what had happened and what she did to this poor child.

Marcus Fiesel, RIP

The death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, who authorities said was killed by his foster parents in 2006, will be featured on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.

The one-hour show includes an interview with Liz Carroll, Marcus’ foster mother, who is serving a life prison sentence after her conviction in a Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 2007.

Investigation Discovery, one of the sister Discovery Channel networks, can be found in Greater Cincinnati on Time Warner Channels 1139 (HD) and 139, and on Northern Kentucky Time Warner Channels 948 (HD) and 471, and Cincinnati Fioptics Channels 675 (HD) and 275.

What really happened to Marcus as Liz Carroll was providing crocodile tears …

Liz and David Carroll wrapped Marcus in a blanket, bound him with duct tape and left him in a hot closet without food and water while they went out of town for a weekend family reunion, prosecutors said.

After finding him dead, David Carroll and his live-in lover, Amy Baker, took Marcus’ body to a rural area and burned it with gasoline. Then they threw the remains in the Ohio River.

The horrific 2006 murder of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, a special needs Foster child, was one that shocked the senses of everyone, including myself. However, from the outset of the case of missing Marcus Fiesel, some thing just seemed to be wrong. Flashback to 2006,  Scared Monkeys followed the events from the outset and had posted some rather critical articles of the foster parents accounts, obviously striking a nerve with Liz Carroll. The posts prompted Liz to leave a comment on Missing & Exploited web page that was far from PG rated and some what threatening. Needless to say it was forwarded to authorities. That very next morning, as fate would have it, Liz and David Carroll were arrested in the death of Marcus Fiesel.

Scared Monkeys: Missing & Exploited was later contacted by Rick McCrabb of the Ohio newspaper, The Middletown Journal, for comments and our coverage of this case.

Newspapers and television stations in southwest Ohio have followed every step in the case, and now that his foster parents have been charged, the story has grabbed the attention of media outlets throughout the United States.

There are Web sites that feature photo albums, message boards, chat rooms and slide and video shows. One of those is www.scaredmonkeys.com, dedicated to exploited and missing children. “Red,” one of the site’s co-founders, said after news of Marcus’ disappearance was linked to his Web site, he received an e-mail from Marcus’ foster mother. She chastised the site for their portrayal.

“As soon as she did that, well, it was like, she’s guilty,” Red said Friday from his office in Maine. “You knew this was going to end bad. The radar just went up. It raises the hair on the back of your neck. When you kill your son, and go public pleading for help, it brings it to a special level of hell.”

He said Marcus’ story has drawn widespread coverage because people are so “disgusted by it.” (Middletown Journal)

Here is one comment from Liz that we were able to print. Too bad she was lying through her murderous teeth.

First, I would like to state that the most important thing that everyone should be concerned about is finding my son. My family’s past and living arrangements have absolutely nothing to do with finding him. My family left our home to avoid media and multiple stangers from sitting outside our house at all hours. We have cooperated 110% with the detectives and have stayed in touch with them on a daily basis. Again, my family has done nothing wrong, we love and miss Marcus. I regret going to the park, not sitting down and not eating that morning. My family and I take day care and foster care children to King’s Island, Water parks, town parks, YMCA, aquariums, carnivals, festivals, and many more places. Since this incident, I have not been left alone and we haven’t taken out kids anywhere but school shopping. I am begging for anyone and everyone that reads this to PLEASE help me find my son. I know that I will not be able to care for him after this incident but I still need to know that he is alright. PLEASE call crime stoppers with ANY possible leads!!!!!!Thank you.

Security Service of Ukraine Intercepts Phone Conversations of Russian Separatists Admitting Shooting Down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17

An intercepted conversation released by the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) reportedly between Russian-backed militants nicknamed “Major” and “Greek” show admission of Russian militants  purposely shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 near the village of Chornukhine, Luhansk Oblast. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the blame for the tragedy lies with Ukraine. The Malaysia Airlines passenger plane carrying nearly 300 people was  shot down near the Ukrainian border. An adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister has said 23 U.S. citizens were among the 298 killed.

Full transcript of an intercepted phone call below:

Igor Bezler: We have just shot down a plane. Group Minera. It fell down beyond Yenakievo (Donetsk Oblast).

Vasili Geranin: Pilots. Where are the pilots?

IB: Gone to search for and photograph the plane. Its smoking.

VG: How many minutes ago?

IB: About 30 minutes ago.

SBU comment: After examining the site of the plane the terrorists come to the conclusion that they have shot down a civilian plane. The next part of the conversation took place about 40 minutes later.

“Major”: These are Chernukhin folks who shot down the plane. From the Chernukhin check point. Those cossacks who are based in Chernukhino.

“Grek”: Yes, Major.

“Major”: The plane fell apart in the air. In the area of Petropavlovskaya mine. The first “200” (code word for dead person). We have found the first “200”. A Civilian.

“Greek”: Well, what do you have there?

“Major”: In short, it was 100 percent a passenger (civilian) aircraft.

“Greek”: Are many people there?

“Major”: Holy sh__t! The debris fell right into the yards (of homes).

“Greek”: What kind of aircraft?

“Major”: I haven’t ascertained this. I haven’t been to the main sight. I am only surveying the scene where the first bodies fell. There are the remains of internal brackets, seats and bodies.

“Greek”: Is there anything left of the weapon?

“Major”: Absolutely nothing. Civilian items, medicinal stuff, towels, toilet paper.

“Greek”: Are there documents?

“Major”: Yes, of one Indonesian student. From a university in Thompson.

Militant: Regarding the plane shot down in the area of Snizhne-Torez. It’s a civilian one. Fell down near Grabove. There are lots of corpses of women and children. The Cossacks are out there looking at all this.

They say on TV it’s AN-26 transport plane, but they say it’s written Malaysia Airlines on the plane. What was it doing on Ukraine’s territory?

Nikolay Kozitsin: That means they were carrying spies. They shouldn’t be f…cking flying. There is a war going on.

CAIR Officials Dishonor American Heroes on Memorial Day Who Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice to Preserve Our Freedom

Yup, we have allowed them to live among us and have a credible voice …

From The Clarion Project: While the rest of the country was remembering and honoring US fallen military heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedoms and liberties, some prominent members of CAIR were doing quite the opposite as they questioned whether they deserved to be honored. In fact, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter went much further and tweeted whether US soldiers should be honored. I remember when such actions were considered anti-American.

Tweet_CAIR_Memorial day1

Tweet_CAIR_Memorial day2

Virtually all Americans come together on Memorial Day to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the country’s freedom and safety. Two Council on American-Islamic Relations’ officials spent the holiday weekend differently: Questioning whether U.S. troops deserve to be honored and tweeting that the country was “established upon white supremacy.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group labeled by the Justice Department as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial, disingenuously claims that it is a moderate organization.

Yet, on May 23, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” about whether to honor American soldiers who died in wars:

Wait there is more. Another CAIR official, Dawud Walid, the executive-director of CAIR’s Michigan chapter, as questioning whether they should honor American soldiers that died in “unjust” wars and occupations. Remember this the next time you see a CAIR mouthpiece on TV spewing BS as a moderate view. It gets more sick, on May 4, 2014 Billoo re-tweeted two opinions that America is inherently murderous. Hah, this coming from the folks who kill innocents, kidnap girls, kill Christians and sentence to death anyone who does not convert to Islam.

Oh by the way, the U.S. government labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing the Hamas terrorist group.

This Video Speaks Volumes of the Members who Follow the Westboro Baptist Church … Hate Does Not Know How to React to Kindness

Battling hate with kindness …

How does one battle and confuse those that are so filled with hate, why with kindness of course. As Members of the Westboro Baptist Church were protesting with their anti-gay, anti-solider signs, outside the Midland Theater in Kansas City, MO of the pop singer Lorde’s concert, an interesting things happened … the counter protest was with kindness, not more hate. Earlier this week, pastor and founder of the WBC Fred Phelps died from natural causes.

“We realized that it wasn’t so much about antagonizing them,” she said, “but sending out the countered safe that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity.”

Pic – Screen grab via KSHB-TV video below

However, the message of kindness was lost on some of the clueless members of the WBC. Steve Drain,  a long time Westboro Baptists Church member said in response to the sign, “I don’t even know what they mean by what they are saying.” Really? I guess when one is so consumed with ignorant hate, one has no place for compassion. Doesn’t this speak volumes of the evil message that these people have been brainwashed with.

Founder of Westboro Baptist Church Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. is Dead at 84 … Oh the Irony, No Funeral for Fred Phelps

Good riddance to bad rubbish … Hell has a new occupant.

Westboro Baptist Church founder Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. has died at age 84. The founder of the controversial church died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to church spokesman Steve Drain Satan. Phelps and his misguided flock are known for their protesting of military funerals, preaching their “God Hates …” message.  Sorry, but you do not have to be a member or even a supporter of the LGBT community to be against Phelps and the WBC. One only needs to have a clue and a sense of compassion. Never has a group of individuals been so misguided, under the guise of religion. Well, except Muslim jihadist extremists.

Fred Phelps — the founding pastor of a Kansas church known for its virulently anti-gay protests at public events, including military funerals — has died, the church said Thursday.

The 84-year-old died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to church spokesman Steve Drain.

Phelps founded Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, in 1955 and molded it in his fire-and-brimstone image. Many members of the small congregation are related to Phelps through blood or marriage.

According to Westboro, the church has picketed more than 53,000 events, ranging from Lady Gaga concerts to funerals for slain U.S. soldiers. Typically, a dozen or so church members — including small children — will brandish signs that say “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.”

Phelps was often called “the most hated man in America,” a label he seemed to relish.

Oh the irony of ironies … according to his daughter, Margie Phelps, there will be no funeral for Fred Phelps. HA!!! What’s the matter, is the Westboro Baptist Church and the Phelps family afraid that a record number of people will show up to picket and protect his funeral, Hmm? Are they afraid that there will be signs by protesters stating, “GOD hates Fred”. Just curious? But this is the way that hypocritical hate works. It would appear that the iront was not lost on American Power either.

No Funeral

Margie Phelps, Phleps daughter, told WIBW-AM that there will be no funeral for him.

Over the weekend, we learned that Phelps was reportedly “on the edge of death.”

In a statement on his Facebook page, Nathan Phelps, who has been estranged from his father for 30 years, said the senior Phelps was dying in hospice care in Topeka, Kan., and that he had been ex-communicated from his own church in August of 2013.

Kudos to Lefitists Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters  … Rise above the hate.

I’m sending this message to you in hopes that you may send it on. I hope that as in other times a cooler mind may win out before others make a choice we, the LGBT community, won’t be able to take back. It has been reported today that Fred Phelps has died. It is safe to say that, given his attitude and his devotion to hate, those of us within, and around, the LGBT community will not mourn his end. He caused many families pain at a time when they were already hurting from the death of loved ones. However, this is his legacy, not ours.

As reported at Kansas First News, the founder of the hate-filled, judgmental church may be dead, but the ill-intended message continues. The WBC will continue to picket and spread their message of judgmental hate. Why would they stop, it is the only way they get attention.

Some called his family the most hated in America, and there has been reaction worldwide about the death of that founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps. According to Tim Phelps, one of Fred Phelps Sr.’s sons, Phelps passed away Wednesday night.

With the news of his passing, there is a question people are asking: Will the picketing stop?

It was business as usual for the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, less than a day after their founder’s death.

“So it’s no different today?” Kansas First News asked Westboro Baptist Church members. ”No different today. Duty is the same,” answered a member who was picketing on 17th and Gage in Topeka.

Make Room in HELL … Westboro Baptist Church Founder Fred Phelps Sr. Reportedly Near Death

Don’t worry, there is a special spot reserved for you in the 7th level of Hell … hmm, or is it the 8th?

Fred Phelps Sr., the founder of the radical Westboro Baptist Church is reportedly near death. Phelps is 84. This so-called Kansas church has become infamous for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, promoting “Gad Hates Fags”. From the WAPO, members of the Westboro church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion. I guess some one forgot to tell this group that God loves, he does not hate.

According to his estranged son via Facebook, Nathan Phelps, Fred Phelps is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.” Nathan Phelps also said, the elder Phelps was ex-communicated from his own church last year. A second son of the elder Phelps Sr., Nate Phelps, also has confirmed that his father had been voted out of church.

Fred Phelps Sr.

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church that’s widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, is in a care facility.

Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said Sunday that Phelps is being cared for in a Shawnee County facility. Drain wouldn’t identify the facility but says Phelps is 84 and “having some health problems.”

Son of Fred Phelps Sr. says father voted out of church.

The information is based on an email sent by the son, Nate Phelps, to a Topeka Capital-Journal reporter. Nate Phelps said his father is near death.

“(Fred) is at Midland Hospice House where, as of yesterday (Friday), he is comfortable without the respiratory difficultly that he was having the day before and is unresponsive,” Nate Phelps wrote, quoting a message sent to him.

After Fred Phelps Sr. was voted out of the church, he was moved to another house where he could be watched for fear of him hurting himself, then he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said in the email.

For many years, Fred Phelps Sr. and his wife, Margie Marie Phelps, lived in an upper floor of the church.

A Westboro Baptist Church spokesman declined to comment Sunday on whether a report that Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. has been excommunicated from the conservative church, known for its controversial anti-gay stance, that he founded in the 1950s.

Sorry, but HATE is not a religion. Isn’t this guy going to be in for a surprise when he finds the Pearly Gates locked and a sign that says, sorry, take this elevator straight to Hell.

Peter Lanza, the Father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza Gives First Interview: He Would have Killed Me ‘in a Heartbeat’ … “You Can’t Get Any More Evil” … “Wishes His Son Was Never Born”

Peter Lanza, the father of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter Adam Lanza, gave his first interview since the horrendous mass murder in Newton, CT. Peter Lanza was interviewed by the New Yorker and stated, “With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance.” Peter also had a motive behind the reason why his son shot his mother multiple times; “The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me.” He would later say with regards to the mass killing of children and teachers at the school,”You can’t get any more evil.”

The father of the Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman Adam Lanza says he carries guilt about his son’s violent rampage and then says something that probably comes as one of the worst thing they can ever say as a parent, Peter Lanza “wishes his son had never been born”.  I bet there are families of 26 victims from Sandy Hook that would say the same.

The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza said his son would have killed him if he’d had the opportunity.

“With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance,” Peter Lanza told New Yorker magazine in an interview that appears in the March 17 issue.

It’s the first time Peter Lanza has spoken publicly about his son.

“The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me,” he said.

The New Yorker: The ReckoningThe father of the Sandy Hook killer searches for answers. by Andrew Solomon

Peter hadn’t seen his son for two years at the time of the Sandy Hook killings, and, even with hindsight, he doesn’t think that the catastrophe could have been predicted. But he constantly thinks about what he could have done differently and wishes he had pushed harder to see Adam. “Any variation on what I did and how my relationship was had to be good, because no outcome could be worse,” he said. Another time, he said, “You can’t get any more evil,” and added, “How much do I beat up on myself about the fact that he’s my son? A lot.”

Depending on whom you ask, there were twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight victims in Newtown. It’s twenty-six if you count only those who were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School; twenty-seven if you include Nancy Lanza; twenty-eight if you judge Adam’s suicide a loss. There are twenty-six stars on the local firehouse roof. On the anniversary of the shootings, President Obama referred to “six dedicated school workers and twenty beautiful children” who had been killed, and the governor of Connecticut asked churches to ring their bells twenty-six times. Some churches in Newtown had previously commemorated the victims by ringing twenty-eight times, but a popular narrative had taken hold in which Nancy—a gun enthusiast who had taught Adam to shoot—was an accessory to the crime, rather than its victim. Emily Miller, an editor at the Washington Times, wrote, “We can’t blame lax gun-control laws, access to mental health treatment, prescription drugs or video games for Lanza’s terrible killing spree. We can point to a mother who should have been more aware of how sick her son had become and forced treatment.” (read the full story HERE)

Let us never forget the 20 precious angles that were killed that day and the six heroic adults who tried to protect them.

Bi-Partisan Senate Vote Rejects Obama Nominee, Cop-Killer Atty. Debo Adegbile, to Lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division

A stinging bi-partisan vote defeat for Barack Obama … Sorry, but actions have consequences.

In a 47 to 52 vote in the US Senate, Republicans were joined by seven Democrats voting to continue a filibuster of Debo Adegbile’s nomination for the influential post, to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.Yes, the same Debo Adegbile, who represented cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was found guilty in 1981 of killing police officer Daniel Faulkner and turned the case into a racially-charged political cause-celeb, and, in doing so, went far beyond his duties as a lawyer to zealously represent his client.

As Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated, Those Who Advocate For Cop Killers Aren’t Suited For Leadership at DOJ.

Obama_copkiller

But not too much for Barack Obama to nominate …

Just what we did not need in the Civil Rights department enforcing the nation’s anti-discrimination laws, a lawyer as Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey led the charge against Adegbile’s nomination,“Under Mr. Adegbile’s oversight, LDF lawyers promoted the pernicious myth that Abu-Jamal was an innocent man, that he was framed because of his race.” Unproven allegations of racism reversed a cop-killers sentence.  So I guess Barack Obama will call the following Democratic Senators racists and playing Washington politics, Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Joe Manchin (WV), Mark Pryor (AR), Joe Donnelly (IN), John Walsh (MT), Chris Coons (DE) and Bob Casey Jr. (PA), who voted with Republicans to block the nomination of Adegbile.

The Senate rejected President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division on Wednesday in a stunning 47-52 vote in which seven Democrats abandoned their leadership.

The vote was all the more remarkable for the five Democrats in tough reelection races this year who voted in vain to move Debo Adegbile’s nomination forward.

Their votes now become ammunition for Senate Republicans, who argued Adegbile was unfit to serve because of his legal work in support of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia

police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.

The vote was a stinging defeat for the White House that showed President Obama is politically out of step with some centrist Democrats heading into the midterm elections.

Obama_Laughing3

“He represents the best of the legal profession,” and if you like your cop-killing lawyer, you can keep him …

The response from the community agitator … Barack Obama defended his disgusting pick to head up the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department. Sorry Mr. President, this sick pick to further politicize the Justice Dept. and push it further left has failed. Even Democrats could not back your pick. Wow, if this is the best of the legal profession, the profession just sunk even lower.

Obama labeled the vote a “travesty” based on “wildly unfair” character attacks.

“Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable. He represents the best of the legal profession, with wide-ranging experience, and the deep respect of those with whom he has worked,” Obama said. “As a lawyer, Mr. Adegbile has played by the rules. And now, Washington politics have used the rules against him.”

To our shameful, reprehensible president who has hit a new low in trying to tear apart America, The Lonely Conservative sadly says, “Danny Faulkner is not available for comment.”

THE KIDNAPPING CHILDREN EXPERIMENT … Fousey Tube Social Experiment Tests How People will People Would React to a Possible Child Kidnapping (VIDEO)

STOP THE APATHY AMERICA, GET INVOLVED AND HELP IF THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTS ITSELF …

Fousey Tube does a rather interesting and important video social experiment on how people would react to a possible child kidnapping an abduction. Needless to say, some of the results were troubling. While some people stepped in and protected the child, one woman even pepper-sprayed the would be child predator, sadly many others were just apathetic and literally did nothing. FOLKS, if we do not step in and help a child in trouble, who will you help? It does not take much to just question what is happening. Any parent who you might question would respect the fact that you were concerned.

I have to say though that as much as a I respect what they are doing at Fousey Tube, some of it is a bit dangerous. Depending on where you were or who you came in contact with, one never knows if during this experiment the individual that is approached could be legally carrying a gun and would draw it thinking that there was a possible child kidnapping taking place … present company included.

If you have never watched the social experiments they do on the video web site, I would strongly suggest you take a look.

Could There Finally Be a Break in the 1975 Case if Missing 12 Year Old Sheila Lyon & 10 Year Old Sister Kate Lyon … Looking at Convicted Sex Offender Lloyd Lee Welch Jr

Could there finally be a break in the 40 year old missing persons case of sisters Sheila and Katherine Lyon?

Twelve year old Sheila Lyon and her 10 year old sister Katherine went missing March 25, 1975 while walking home from Wheaton Plaza in Kensington, Maryland.  40 years ago, several witnesses, including the girls’ older brother, saw the two girls inside the shopping mall before their disappearance. An extensive search and investigation ensued, but the two girls were never found nor heard from and no one had ever been charged in the case. Now after all this time, the police belive they may finally have a break in the case. Authorities have identified a “person of interest in the 40 year old Lyon’s missing person’s case … he is  57 year old Lloyd Lee Welch, an already convicted sex offender.

Person of Interest, Convicted Sex Offender Lloyd Lee Welch Jr.

Welch traveled extensively throughout the United States from the 1970s through the mid-90s, authorities said. He worked as a ride operator for a carnival company, which often set up at malls. He has a criminal history that includes arrests in several different states for sexual offenses against young girls, according to the station.

CNN:

The two little girls vanished nearly 40 years ago, their disappearance long faded from the public consciousness, their names etched in a stone marker their hope-sapped parents placed in a local cemetery.

But Maryland police have been tenacious about solving this cold case. And on Tuesday they breathed new life into it, when they announced a possible breakthrough.

Convicted sex offender Lloyd Lee Welch Jr., 57, who’s been serving a prison sentence in Delaware since 1997, was near Sheila and Katherine Lyon on that March day in 1975 when they went missing, Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger told reporters Tuesday.

Welch was at a plaza that was among the last places that the two girls were seen alive, and he was observed paying attention to the sisters, Manger said. He declined to state how police obtained this lead.

UPDATE I: Inmate Lloyd Welch named as ‘person of interest’ in 1975 Lyon sisters case.

Old case file documents show that a young girl who was with the Lyon sisters that afternoon had described a man who followed the three of them that day. Police developed a sketch partly based on that description, they said. It resembles a mug shot taken of Welch a few years later — in 1977 — when he was arrested in a burglary case in Montgomery.

Welch went on to assault girls in South Carolina and Delaware, where he is in prison, police said. The details of the Delaware case are not clear, but court papers show that he pleaded guilty in 1998 to several sex offenses. Officials said he is due to be set free in 2027 but has asked for early release. The Board of Pardons has scheduled a hearing for July.

Welch’s niece, Debbie Roe, 38, of Dover, Del., said she is the only member of the family who is in regular contact with him. She said she has written letters on and off to him for the past 13 years during his incarceration. She described him as “sweet” and said he is excited when she visits him in prison.

She said that Welch has denied involvement in the disappearance of the Lyon girls but told her that he was at Wheaton Plaza that day.

Authorities are seeking the public’s help to learn more about Welch. Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 1-800-CALL-FBI, or they can submit a tip online at http://tips.fbi.gov.
