JOHN DOE #2 IDENTIFIED; BUT CAN WE GET THE FBI TO ARREST HIM?
NOTE: 1ACR has been assisting Glenn & Kathy Wilburn with their private
investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing and the search for ALL of the
killers of their two grandchildren and 166 other Americans. The analysis
below is my own, and it should be made clear that I do not presume to speak
for the Wilburns. The Wilburns are two very courageous Americans who have
suffered much in their search for the truth. Other Oklahoma City victims
have criticized the Wilburns for seeking to get McVeigh off the hook. Nothing
could be further from the truth. None of the information that they or their
many volunteer helpers have discovered (of which I am but one) exculpates
Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh was the truck driver, and a key player in the
plot. What we are after is the rest of the bombers and the murdering bastards
that sent them and sheltered them after the fact.

Theft of guns fed fear
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Writer
TILLY -- About two months before he and his family vanished, gun dealer
and patriot movement member William Mueller told a key Arkansas militia
spokesman that he feared for his life. Mueller family friends in Searcy
County said Sunday they believe the Muellers were abducted from their Tilly
home in January and murdered.
Arkansas State Police spokesman Wayne Jordan said the bound and badly
decomposed bodies of Mueller, 53; his wife, Nancy, 28; and her 8-year-old
daughter, Sarah, were pulled Saturday from a bayou in Pope County. But
Pope County Sheriff Jay Winters said he would not release the names of
the victims until the State Crime Laboratory provided a positive identification.
State Crime Laboratory officials were to transport the bodies to Little
Rock today, Pope County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Jeff Phillips said
George Eaton, publisher of the Patriot Report, said Sunday Mueller's
concerns about his family's safety stemmed from the 1995 burglary of the
two-story stone and wood home where he lived with his wife and her daughter
until they vanished Jan. 5. Eaton said Mueller may have known who took
$50,000 in gold and silver bullion, coins, guns and gun parts in early
1995. He feared they would return and kill him. That robbery occurred about
two months after Royal gun collector Roger Moore was gagged and bound with
duct tape in a daylight robbery linked to the April 19, 1995, bombing of
the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
Investigators have not indicated any links between the slayings of the
Muellers, the earlier burglary, and the robbery at Moore's home Nov. 5,
1994. Both thefts occurred within months of the bombing. Eaton says the
timing troubles him.
"I didn't think there was any involvement with the Oklahoma City
bombing or that other robbery," Eaton said. "But it's a big coincidence
that there were two big robberies like that in Arkansas." Eaton said
Mueller confessed his fears that he might be robbed or murdered when the
two last met at a militia-oriented church service in November or December
1995. He said Mueller invited him to a religious meeting at his home in
Tilly in January, but Eaton couldn't make it.
Relatives said the Muellers were last seen in Tilly on Jan. 5 and were
believed en route to a Springdale gun show they never attended. Their white
Jeep Cherokee and a trailer in which they carried guns and precious metals
was found abandoned on a road 17 miles north of Dover in February. It was
about 27 miles from where their bodies were recovered Saturday.
Missing, said Eaton, would have been an odd assortment of gold and silver,
guns, gun parts and survivalist gear --much like the material stolen from
the Mueller home in early 1995. Mueller, suspicious of banks and fearful
of another burglary, converted his cash into precious metals and took his
savings on road trips.
When the Jeep and empty trailer were found, Missouri investigators inspected
the scene. Police are speculating that Mueller may have been acquainted
with a suspect wanted by Missouri authorities, Timothy Coombs. Coombs is
accused of shooting a Missouri police officer in the officer's home in
Searcy County Sheriff Kent Griggs said Mueller and Coombs were both
members of an anti-government group. "Nobody took this man from here
without a struggle," said David Mason, who was standing outside the
house that he rented to his friend, William Mueller. He added that more
than one person must have been involved since there was no sign of a struggle.
Mason said he found the lock to the house door forced open shortly after
the Mueller family disappeared in January. The Muellers lived in Tilly,
some 38 miles northeast of Russellville. William Mueller, an electrician,
had worked at one time for Wal-Mart in Russellville. Sylvia Mason, wife
of David Mason, said she only became worried after not hearing from the
Muellers for about two weeks. That was because the family would come and
go from the converted schoolhouse, she said.
"I became really worried after discovering the building had been
broken into and their animals weren't fed," she said. The pets include
a dog that is part chow, and a cat. The Masons said they know of no one
who wanted to hurt the Muellers and can think of no other reason than robbery
as the motive for the killings. But David Mason said he had no idea why
someone who intended to rob and kill the Muellers would abduct them, kill
them and dump the bodies miles away, instead of committing the entire crime
at the isolated house.
The house, which David Mason first built as a Christian school some
14 to 15 years ago, sits along Arkansas 16 and there are no immediate neighbors.
The Masons said that often the closest houses are unoccupied. Sylvia Mason
described the Muellers "as a good Christian family." "We
are very saddened," David Mason said. "They were nice people."
But he said that he felt the Muellers were the victims of foul play since
January and added: "I'm very glad that they have been found."
He said that finding the bodies is the second step toward solving the mystery
that he wants solved.
He said the Muellers had moved into their rental house about two years
ago.He said he had not known the Muellers before that and doesn't believe
the Muellers were a member of a fringe political group or a cult. Larry
Darter, a former Pope County sheriff, said Mueller once was his neighbor.
"They were good neighbors," Darter said. "We watched out
for each other's place." Darter said that he believes William Mueller
moved to Arkansas from New York more than 10 years ago. He said Mueller
had been a constable in Pope County. He said also that William Mueller
sold some tapes that were anti-government. But that didn't stop them from
being friends, he said. "We just didn't believe the same thing,"
Darter said. Sylvia Mason said she found evidence of a second break-in
following their disappearance.
"The bottom of the front door was kicked in. The door at the top
of the stairs was kicked in. They even left their glasses by the bedside,"
she said. "Everything in the building told us they were taken against
In the Royal robbery, Moore reported that a masked robber wearing military
camouflage stole $59,000 in guns, coins, precious metals and pre-Columbian
jade and a key to a Hot Springs safety deposit box from his residence near
Federal agents seized Chinese assault rifles, the bank key, and other
items stolen from the property of Terry Lynn Nichols in Michigan last year.
Nichols, 41, of Decker, Mich., and Timothy James McVeigh, a 28-year-old
itinerant who sometimes stayed in Kingman, Ariz., were indicted last August
on charges of murder, conspiracy, and use of a weapon of mass destruction
in connection with the Oklahoma City bombing.
Some of Moore's guns were sold to a Kingman pawnshop by local resident
Michael Fortier, who told federal agents he did so at McVeigh's direction.
McVeigh and Nichols are expected to stand trial in Denver on the bombing
charges late this year. Fortier, 28, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and
transporting stolen firearms. He awaits sentencing.
Eaton said Mueller never tied his fears to Oklahoma City and never mentioned
knowing McVeigh. "We talked about how sad it was," Eaton said.
"It seriously hurt his business, and it hurt my newsletter a lot."
He said Mueller had met an acquaintance of McVeigh's, Andy Strassmeir,
during a brief, strained encounter at a gun show in Fort Smith sometime
before the bombing. Strassmeir, a former German army lieutenant, worked
security at Elohim City, a Christian identity community near Muldrow, Okla.
Officials say McVeigh called the community asking for "Andy"
a few days before the bombing.
Eaton said he introduced the men, who argued for 10 minutes on whether
Strassmeir had given Mueller a $10 or $20 bill to purchase some merchandise.
He said they parted on good terms. "He (Mueller) was just a real good
American. They were just nice people. I don't think he would ever have
had anything to do with anything illegal," Eaton said. If anything,
said Eaton, Mueller was naive and so trusting he had no security at his
The first burglary, which occurred while they were away at a gun show,
drained their savings, Eaton said. Mueller was scheduled to go to New York
and pick up a $50,000 inheritance check from his father's death before
he disappeared. Eaton said he never got the check.
Eaton published a patriot movement newsletter in northern Idaho and
helped negotiate the standoff between federal troops and white separatist
Randy Weaver and his family at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in 1992. Weaver's son
and wife were killed during the confrontation.
Eaton met the Muellers three years ago at a Fort Smith gun show and
became friends. Mueller began peddling Eaton's newsletter and a series
of audio and video tapes detailing the Ruby Ridge killings, the federal
raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, and other extremist clashes.
He said the Muellers avoided the big city gun shows and concentrated
on the more frequent, smaller shows in towns like Springdale, Tulsa and
The shows involved 150 or so dealers, Eaton said. Moore, who also traveled
the shows and knew McVeigh, said Sunday it was not uncommon for the dealers
to use fake names. He's not sure whether he or his girlfriend, Karen, ever
met the Muellers or whether their robberies were related.
"It wasn't unusual for everyone to have a different name,"
Moore said. "You'd meet someone later and they'd say, "Oh, by
the way, that wasn't my real name.'"
