Why this petition matters

Started by Baz Dane

Kevin Ives (17) and Don Henry (16) were murdered in Alexander Arkansas in the early morning hours of August 23, 1987 and their bodies were placed on the railroad tracks.

Local Authorities immediately began a cover-up of the murders, denying evidence, and saying "no foul play is suspected".

A couple of weeks later on September 7, 1987 the Arkansas State Medical Examiner ruled the boys were "unconscious and in a deep sleep on the railroad tracks, under the psychedelic influence of THC (marijuana)..." ... and ruled the deaths accidental.

After massive outrage and determination by the parents, a Grand Jury was formed to investigate the deaths in April of 1988, and a second autopsy performed by another team of pathologists... the rulings were MURDER... the Boys were killed BEFORE being placed on the railroad tracks.

On May 17, 1988 the first of 6 people who may have had knowledge about Kevin and Don's murders are killed.

In December 1993, the Little Rock Arkansas office of the F.B.I. officially began "investigating" Kevin and Don's murders.

The F.B.I. would uncover massive amounts of corruption and drug trafficking involving authorities... authorities were failing polygraphs when it came to the Boys' murders... while witnesses were passing polygraphs, naming people at the railroad tracks, including authorities.

On March 8, 1994 the F.B.I. would document in one memorandum, "At least six individuals who claimed to have information concerning the deaths of Kevin Ives and Don Henry have been murdered."

On December 18, 1997 the first FIOA request to the F.B.I. for access to all records concerning Kevin and Don was made.

On January 21, 1998 the F.B.I. responded, "Headquarters located no records responsive...

On February 2, 1998 the Little Rock F.B.I. S.A.C. (Special Agent in Charge) would state in a memorandum, "We cannot state with certainty that a murder even occurred."

On February 3, 1998 the F.B.I. closed the case ... with no arrests.

On July 7, 2000 after lengthy legal battles, and with Congressman Vic Snyder's help, the F.B.I. would finally admit that they had “approximately 16,600 pages responsive to your request” - of documents on the Boys’ murders

Of those pages, Linda Ives, mother of Kevin Ives, received only about 2000 pages of documentsheavily redacted.

However... what CAN be disseminated from the roughly 2000 released documents clearly shows that authorities(and others) were most likely involved IN the murders... and authorities were most definitely involved in the Cover-Up of the murders.

Efforts in 2012 and 2016 to have the remaining 14,600 pages of F.B.I. documents released were dismissed.

It's now 2022... and 35 years after the Murders of 2 teenage boys in Arkansas… the F.B.I. still refuses to release the remaining 14,600 documents on their murders … OR, unredact anything from the earlier release of 2000 documents...


Why are they treating the documents on Kevin and Don's murders in the same fashion they do the J.F.K. records???

And here's another good question... WHY? are there thousands of F.B.I. documents (as well as C.I.A. / D.E.A., and so on) on the murders of two teenage boys to begin with???

... if it was just simply the case of some local random murders of two teenage boys, then why all the alphabet agency involvement?

And WHY is their documentation still hidden away and covered up to this day?

Technically, these are YOUR documents... they belong to you, the American public.

We're going to try yet again to get these documents released, and we need your support! Please help us out and sign the petition!

Thank you!
