Move Over LBJ

No Longer The Winner in The Worst Damn Case of Suicide for Political Gain Category

Reenactment of Henry Marshall suicide. Found shot five times with a bolt action .22 rifle, Robertson County, Texas 1961

The New York Medical Examiner says that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide. Naysayers claim the Clinton’s were ultimately responsible for Epstein’s death and that it was a homicide. How they carried the death off, is not stated.

Instead, the Clinton conspiracy proponents point to 49 other suspicions deaths of Clinton associates and hangers on.

I think that the conspiracy theorists are giving the Clinton’s too much credit. They didn’t invent the political suicide shuffle. They copied the master, LBJ. Compare and contrast the stories of Jeffrey Epstein and Henry Marshall.

Time marches on, 1961 and 2019. It’s good to see that the traditions of the democratic party are honored and still carried on. Here is the story of Henry Marshall, Billy Sol Estes and LBJ.

On 3rd June, 1961, Marshall was found dead on his farm by the side of his Chevy Fleetside pickup truck. His rifle lay beside him. He had been shot five times with his own rifle. Soon after County Sheriff Howard Stegall arrived, he decreed that Marshall had committed suicide. No pictures were taken of the crime scene, no blood samples were taken of the stains on the truck (the truck was washed and waxed the following day), no check for fingerprints were made on the rifle or pickup…

On 4th April, 1962, George Krutilek, Estes chief accountant, was found dead. Despite a severe bruise on Krutilek’s head, the coroner decided that he had also committed suicide. The next day, Estes, and three business associates, were indicted by a federal grand jury on 57 counts of fraud. Two of these men, Harold Orr and Coleman Wade, died before the case came to court. At the time it was said they committed suicide but later Estes was to claim that both men were murdered by Mac Wallace in order to protect the political career of Lyndon B. Johnson …

A finding of suicide couldn’t happen in this day and age. The FBI is on the case. The FBI was on the case in 1962. Here is their take on the Henry Marshall death. This after the Harris County Medical Examiner declared Marshall the victim of a homicide.

However, the cover-up continued. Tommy G. McWilliams, the FBI agent in charge of the Henry Marshall investigation, came to the conclusion that Marshall had indeed committed suicide. He wrote: “My theory was that he shot himself and then realized he wasn’t dead.” He then claimed that he then tried to kill himself by inhaling carbon monoxide from the exhaust pipe of his truck. McWilliams claimed that Marshall had used his shirt to make a hood over the exhaust pipe. Even J. Edgar Hoover was not impressed with this theory. He wrote on 21st May, 1962: “I just can’t understand how one can fire five shots at himself.
