20.3 For Someone Special
At the end of a sensational trial, former football star, OJ Simpson, was acquitted of the 1994 brutal double murder of his estranged wife, on 3rd October 1995 in Los Angeles. A trial that received extensive media coverage from the very beginning and it continued the dominating story and front covers for the next 300 days.
During this time, 69 Church Street entered the Supreme Court of Wisconsin at the great Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison, after several appeals made by Jacob Lawrence, FBI, Sheriff’s Departments in Milwaukee and Corpus Christi. Finally, the appellate courts sent this case to the Supreme Court.
Natalia Phol flew on several occasions to attend the court hearings and all her expensed covered by Jacob Lawrence. She had many opportunities to meet Thomas Cyril in Madison. From the beginning he was confident that this case would end in his favour and take no new turn highly relying on the findings of Teep Lab.
Paul Clancy broke down and confessed to all his crimes. He was involved with Jadon Quinn on two other prominent swindles involving real estates and succeeded mainly because there happened to be no manslaughter. However, in this case of 69, he took his steps too far and killed four people. Eventually, abducting the girls ended in his failure after thirteen years. Clancy was found guilty on all counts and charged for murders of Sidney Martin, Savon Martin, Cindy Lockwood and Laura Hudson. Paul Clancy was sentenced for 99 years in prison at his age of fifty on 3rd April 1996. If he didn’t keep those documents, this case would have gone a different way.
George, Franklin and Charles were three sons of Edmond Crape who married a coloured woman. All three sons born in Baton Rouge. Edmond Crape was a brother of Sophia Crape. George was the only cousin who actually saw Sidney Martin in Dillon. Both of their grandparents were Mia Crape and Howard Crape. He was a first cousin once removed to Wellinois. George Crape was involved in killing Sidney Martin at his age of fifty-five and coercing Noth Wellinois. He was aware of the Crape-Myrtle legacy. George once worked in Port Royal Island where he met Paul Clancy. George was found guilty and sentenced for 99 years in prison on 4th April 1996 in the Full Moon and a total lunar eclipse. He was 69. While in prison, his DNA was analysed to match with to Noth Edwidge Wellinois.
The Colombian was convicted for slaying Savon Martin, Cindy Lockwood and Laura Hudson. Curtis was an illegal immigrant and worked for Paul Clancy for six years. He was still at large.
Linda Linz, alias Heidelinde Klutz, was acquitted of the murders. She was an accessory found guilty on two counts of aiding and abetting the manslaughters of Savon Martin and Cindy Lockwood. She returned the black and white album of Mia Crape and the original will in Sidney Martin’s possession saying that Savon Martin gave them for safekeeping. Besides, Linda continued to find a way with her smart lies and holding her innocence with high-profile lawyers well paid. Linda did not even have an alibi for the time frame of the murders but she said she was in Chicago sleeping with a former mayor and this person died four years ago. After twelve years of Savon Martin’s death, there were no abundant proof. Linda never agreed going to 338 Chambers Street in Riverwest in Milwaukee on the night of the murder; 10th November 1983. She was sentenced for twenty-five years in prison and fined.
Jadon Quinn sat ogling his large brown eyes and a tongue dropped out. He couldn’t believe himself sitting in the wrong end of the bench in a trial courtroom. Quinn was behind these many rackets in supporting landowners and murderers to win their cases in others’ courts. One of his operatives was Paul Clancy who grew up together in Savannah, Georgia. He didn’t know even to lie. He kept changing his story time and again. Quinn was proven not guilty for the murders however, sentenced for 55 years on counts of fraudulent and deceptive acts he committed that resulted in the killings of four people and he knew about them. He was alleged to be an aggressive solicitor always seeking money and behind several scams.
Finding irregularities in police proceedings after Savon Martin’s death and weighing on new discoveries, the 69 Church Street case entered into a recurrence for a new trial. Court ruled those three wills produced by H&Q illegal, based on deception and misinformation. Thereby, the Carmen’s testament succeeded property heritage and since Savon Martin was dead, bestowed to Cyril’s Family.
Noth Edwidge Wellinois was left with nothing.
Natalia climbed the open stairway to her room at The Presidio, holding the mobile in one hand, talking to Diego Cavanes who insisted, “Don’t go anywhere! I will be calling you in a minute.”
“What’s this about?” she asked.
“Hang there!” and he hung up.
It was Saturday, 9th November 1997, she reached her room, opened the door and paused to switch on the light, a hand rested on the wall. She wore a short sheath dress, red colour, and white tennis shoes. She wanted to change because it was growing chillier.
Chris Williams grabbed her wrist and pulled her to his room. She tumbled on to his bed, sat with her knees clasped, flustered in the face, black hair and red lipstick. “What do you want?” she snapped angrily.
“Do you want a drink, baby?”
“I have to go, Chris! Diego is calling me!”
“You’re going nowhere, baby,” he pressed the hi-fi system kicking the door close. He picked the bottle and belched, “Craig!” He began to rock his belly, bouncing to a corner, taken away into this recent release from Delbert McClinton; Monkey Around.
“Thanks,” said Natalia receiving the glass.
They were on the edge of space when the mobile rang. She picked the phone and replied, seated stretched out in Fowler’s position in her tennis shoes, “Hey! Enrique! I’m here!”
“Where?” asked Enrique Cavanes, “I am at your door. It’s left open…”
“Hold on! I’m coming in a second!” She hung the phone and swung her leg, “I have to go! Chris! He’s here!”
Enrique saw her sneak out from the next room. “Where were you?”
“In there! I get my bag,” she slipped quickly into her room, “I must change.”
“No time,” he said, “it’s alright. It’s not going to take long.”
“Where are we going?”
Soon they climbed Enrique’s black Cherokee and drove towards Seaworld.
At Seaworld, Perez Cove Way parking lot, a team from Teep Lab waited. Diego Cavanes said, “We are going to Cedros, Solana Beach. You drive that car!”
“Why are we going there?” asked Natalia.
“Here’s the key!” Diego pointed, “Get it!”
She shrugged and turned towards the white car. It was a brand-new Nissan. She opened the door to catch that intoxicating or infatuating smell.
“Wow!” she exclaimed for the love of the smell because she loved the car. She glanced and got in behind the wheel. A cute little pink teddy bear on the dash with a heart that read, ‘For Someone Special’. She figured some fishy thing going on. She stopped keying in and reached for the card. ‘With compliments from Thomas Cyril.’
There the teep gathered to applaud. Diego said, “It’s a gift from Mr Thomas Cyril.”
A Nissan Skyline R33 GTR V-spec, in Sparkling Silver – the king of the road. At the time, it was the fastest road-legal car.
“Let’s go kill a mile!” Enrique climbed the coupe to feel its performance.
They were on the highway. Its powerful ‘vroom’ – a feel-good factor for one thing. Its throttle response was faster than a blink. She felt comfortable, adjustable seat and wheel, spacious interior and no traction at all – it was a great car. Natalia felt that ‘turbo kick’ at once on the road.
