(Updated) Exclusive: GBI to deny Hustler request for Emerson photos

Hustler magazine has requested, through Georgia’s Open Records Act, copies of documents related to the January 2008 murder and decapitation of hiker Meredith Emerson, but House Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) is urging the GBI to deny the magazine’s request for crime scene photographs.

Ralston this morning told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he has asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to deny Hustler, a noted porn publication, copies of the photographs that show the 24-year-old Emerson’s nude and dismembered body.

Update 11:26 a.m.: John Bankhead, spokesman for the GBI, said the agency does not plan to release Emerson’s crime scene photos to the magazine.

“We feel like the intent of the legislation is not to release them,” Bankhead said. “This is just an affront to the victim’s family. It’s incredible that anybody would ask for something like this.”

Ralston said Rep. Jill Chambers (R-Atlanta) will introduce legislation in the House today to clear up what Ralston said was a gray area in state law. Chambers’ bill will exempt from the state’s sunshine laws any request for crime scene photographs that, among other things, depict nude bodies.

“I don’t have a problem with women who knowingly and willingly agree to be photographed and published in Hustler,” Chambers said. “But Meredith has no way to give permission to have her body exposed and lusted after by people who derive pleasure from this.”

Efforts to reach Hustler magazine at its Beverly Hills, Calif., headquarters were not immediately successful.

Original post continues

Ralston said the state should fight the magazine should it push the issue.

“If Hustler wants to take us to court, let them take us to court,” Ralston said.

“I don’t know what the motivation of this magazine is to get these,” Ralston said. “I think it’s sickening and disgusting and vile to even make the request. I don’t see any value that can be served by having these materials released. It’s particularly troubling for the family.”

Ralston said he spoke on Sunday with Emerson’s mother in Colorado.

“They were, needless to say, extremely distraught over the possibility that this could even happen,” he said, adding that it’s his understanding the GBI denied the request for the photographs.

“I think it’s important to honor this young lady and her family and protect their family’s  privacy,” Ralston said.

Bert Brantley, spokesman for Gov. Sonny Perdue, said it’s his understanding that Hustler requested more than just the photographs and that the GBI complied with the most of the request but did not release the photographs.

Emerson, who lived in Buford, was killed in January while hiking with her black Lab, Ella, in Dawson County. Gary Michael Hilton ultimately confessed to the murder and prosecutors agreed to not seek the death penalty against him if he would show them where he had left Emerson’s body. Hilton kidnapped Emerson on a Blood Mountain trail on New Year’s Day. He beat to her death and then cut off her head Jan. 4, leaving her body in the federal Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area.

Hustler is a porn mag, they’re not interested in publishing pictures of dead people. Did any politicians ask Hustler what kind of story they’re working on instead of doing the “moral outrage and sponsoring legislation” show?

As a public record, the photos and documentation are fair game for anyone to obtain through the FOI Act which applies at both the state and federal level. Risking a lawsuit over something as miniscule as this is a breach of Ralston’s fiduciary duty as a state representative. Hustler has as much right as anyone to obtain the information. The family nor he has to look at what they publish. If the request is denied, it opens up a whole can of worms. Citizens may never know what happens behind the closed doors of the government they elect.

The article/blog entry is misleading. According to Brantly, it sounds like the magazine requested most of the info regarding the case, probably in order to do a story. The first 3/4 of the article leads us to believe that all Hustler wanted were the pics.

why would he want pics of that? I am confused isnt it a porn magazine. I can understand maybe he wanting to shed light on the story.. But do you actually need to publish crime scence photos. And can anyone petition for the right to see crime scence photos? What about the family what happend to there rights? Perhaps Huslter needs to explain why they would want those photos.

Doesn’t the family (or victim’s estate) have some kind of privacy right in these pictures? Granted, the state took the pictures in the course of the investigation, but surely a person’s right to privacy is not extinguished simply because she is dead. Also, the article does not answer this question, which seems important: does Hustler have the right to publish the photographs after receiving them?

You’re an idiot pictures of dismembered naked young women are not covered under the freedom of information act. There is absolutely no good that would come of publishing the photos other than serving a bunch of weirdos and making money off of some poor girls murder by a freaking whack job. Who cares about Hustler they are just trying to gain ground they’ve lost to the internet by doing outrageously stupid crap.

Whoever made the comment about Freedom Of Information Act being a justifiable argument to obtain these pictures is just uninformed. This person is equating the releasing of these pictures to the government doing business behind closed doors. Tell me how the release of these pictures are beneficial to the public? It’s not, so these pictures do NOT need to be released to Hustler or anyone else. Anyone to argue on behalf of Hustler may be revealing more about their depraved minds. Hustler does not need pictures to do a story, they have alterior motives behind wanting the pictures.

Unfortunately, investigative files are fair game to the open records act, providing the investigation has been closed. If these pictures are ultimately released, and Hustler publishes them, the victim’s family could claim intentional infliction of pain and suffering, not only by the state, but the magazine. Talk about a $1 billion lawsuit. Georgia should do with the pictures what Richard Nixon hesitated to do with the tapes: burn them now.

JD, just cause they have a legal right doesn’t make it morally right. You seem to be lost in some kind of legal righteousness as if what’s legal is what’s right. Was slavery right even though it used to be legal? And to insinuate that stuff like this should be open to the public so that we can always be aware of what happens behind “closed government doors” is so absurd and so over the top that I don’t even know where to begin with you.

Put away your nonsense about legalities and legal pretentiousness and start thinking in terms of what we all know is right and wrong.

B-fan,

“Did any politicians ask Hustler what kind of story they’re working on instead of doing the “moral outrage and sponsoring legislation” show?”

B-fan, how much common sense does it take to realize that Hustler really isn’t up to any good regarding wanting the photos? Does it really matter why they want the photos? Do you think they are possibly up to some good with the photos? Maybe they just want to do a friendly public service announcement on the lines of being aware of your surroundings and of creeps out there?

And your comment about moral outrage? Seems you don’t like people making moral judgements about what’s right and wrong. Too bad. People make judgements all day and every day about other people on all manner of things ranging from their appearance to to their lifestyle and everything in between. You are no exception as you just passed judgment on people who are morally outraged by this.

Unbelieveable!

March 8th, 2010

This is probably one of the sickest things I have ever heard of. If passed, this opens the door for all photos to be released, including sex crimes against children. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN!. Hustler is probably down in magazine sales and needs to stir the pot to get their readership up. I trust the GBI and our legislation to do the right thing.

Can’t believe anyone would be supportive of any part of this – regardless of how you feel, flag waving, bi-golly it’s my right way of living – there is a moral line and there can be nothing good of turning any of that information over to anyone for anything – this is one where it doesn’t matter what the law says, nothing good will come from anyone having those photos and that information – keep it sealed in the GBI files – sorry – any judge who would allow that stuff should have that right taken away – there are some things worth taking a stand against, and any judge with half a moral conscience should go nuts in not allowing this info to be released! If we blindly support this stuff and a judge who would allow it to happen, holy cow, we’re in trouble – thought there was a little bit of dignity and respect in the judge’s chamber, didn’t realize they could be as bad as an ambulance chasing attorney! WOW! The state of Georgia should be very ashamed if this information is released to anyone!

As a retired archivist, I can say that many of our records are appropriately closed. Viewing the record is one thing; publishing them is another. I do not doubt that Hustler’s intention is to sell this as some sort of sick ’snuff’ photography. I think there are plenty of legal grounds to grant them onsite access without allowing copies. If there is a loop hole that does not protect this woman’s good name from this, not to speak of her family, friends and community, then it should be closed ASAP. Acess to many records does not include the right to publish. And I am not sure that an erotic use of these photographs do not amount to necrophilia. Libertarians need to get real. Some choices need to be collective, community based. This is one of them.

The federal Freedom of Information Act, 5 United States Code 552, is a federal law that applies ONLY to federal/executive branch agencies. It does not apply to the states. Most, if not all states have a state version of the FOIA, that applies only to state records.

Have you looked at a Hustler? I have…quite disgusting, but not any more disgusting than what is already out on the internet today.

Simply, there would never be a positive outcome to allowing those photos to be displayed. Meredith deserves in death what was taken from her in life – peace. Please do not release those photos.

How does following the law suddenly become being politically correct? It’s only when YOU approve; freedom and laws are good only when you happen to agree, right?

You’re the same people who screamed Rule of Law every five minutes when the subject was a president you didn’t like. You’re the same crowd who couldn’t get enough details about oral sex and made jokes about stains on the little blue dress or the infamous cigars.

Remember Congressman Gary Condit? Turns out he was innocent, but that didn’t stop you people from tossing out the law and convicting him in the court of public option based FOX Noise and Nancy Grace theories.

If you don’t like the law – try contacting YOUR republican representative to change the law instead of whining if it’s not used against the people you really hate.

Personally, I find this latest episode in FOX-style journalism disgusting too!

Isn’t that what really bothers you about Hustler. Here is a suggestons for you, if you don’t like something, don’t partake. I suppose that is it ok by you for the BIG government to interfere only when it suites your purpose but you stand on the street corners with other nut jobs and tea bagges advocating for less government (exccept for the death penalty, school prayer and/or vochers, abortions and porn.) Now having said that, I will not buy hustler or look at its contents if these pictures are piblished, BUT I RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF ALL to decide what to buy and view, etc. There are laws on the books to protect against child porn, beastiality, etc.

I believe that the law is that these pictures are private stuff. If Hustler were to receive them the family could sue Hustler, the city police dept. and the printer who prints those photos for Hustler, which is Quadgraphics here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The family will be the one to profit from this. But who in their right mind would do something like this there are enough sickos in this world today.
I think Hustler is getting desparate for money just like everyone else needs it in this bad recovery. But to stoop this low for information is really a desperate situation. I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and I heard the news up here. I hope Hustler goes out of business. And Jesus is Lord and he will make sure of that.

I would like to think that Hustler’s efforts are the result of them wanting to expose the heinous acts of Hilton, in an attempt to show that justice has not been served for Emerson and her family, nor will it ever be until Hilton is executed – IMHO. I do not feel right though about releasing the photos, even though I don’t think that the nudity is what Hustler truly wants – I think this is a case where they want to show how grisly this crime was and ask why our tax dollars are being used to care for and support this cold-blooded murderer for the rest of his life.

Unfortunately too many people misconstrue what Jesus would do in their quest to define what Christ like behavior is.

The Bible exhorts Christians to spread the news of the Gospel. Quite simply put without judgement or malice towards anyone, if you reject that Jesus died on the cross to pay the debt for your sin, then you reject God and God says that the punishment is eternal damnation.

I will grant that some people do not say this in what is perceived to be the kindest manner, but that doesn’t make it any less a fact. Christ like behavior is to care so much about someone, even a stranger that you are concerned for their eternal soul enough to share the truth regardless of the response.

You say you stopped believing because of people that behave that way. I am sorry to hear that. God doesn’t change because of what his children do or how they behave. I sincerely hope that you will make your way back.

As far as this issue goes, Hustler is a porn magazine, without any good reason to the contrary most people will think that their purpose in requesting those pictures is not altruistic or anything other than greedy. I wish that we could all be selfless enough to realize that releasing those pictures to just anyone would cause immeasurable heartache for the family of that young woman.

“The Thin Guy” says it would be the same as compelling Hustler to provide pictures of Larry Flynt’s wife as she died of AIDS. I don’t want or need to see either one. I do think the difference would be that Althea Flynt voluntarily posed nude. Ms. Emerson’s choice was made at gunpoint. I don’t think the law is structured to expose someone that was illegally forced to do this. It’s like the distinction between adult and kiddie porn. Both are disgusting but only one was consensual.

Maybe they are trying to buy them to release them back to the family. The founder of Vivid magazine bought the Shaquille Oneal nude photos and handed them back over to Shaq because they were rightfully his. Maybe this isnt so predictable. I am sure that he is doing this through the magazines name because he expected this response. Then when he releases them to the family all of the critics are going to look like fools.

Let me get this straight: Our Legislature – in its infinite wisdom – wants to ban the release of crime scene photos that depict nude victims? So it will still be okay to release photos of people who have been butchered – as long as they have clothes on? Another example of our backwards ways, where violence is okay but nudity … oh, we can’t tolerate that. I don’t know what Hustler’s intentions are. But I do know there is a LAW that gives access to crime scene photos. It applies. To everybody. Whether you like it or not.

To all of the people who want the photos:

March 8th, 2010

So photos of you were taken with out your consent of you taking a shower. Someone caught the person. The photos are then used as evidence in the case against that person. By your assessments then Hustler should be able to publish those photos? What’s next autopsy
photos? Victums of child pron?

As distasteful as publication of these photos would be, what if the Holocaust photos were kept secret, too? It’s tough having a free society. Sometimes it hurts. If a record is produced by a public entity, the public should have access to it, no matter how repulsive that might be.

State government, ESPECIALLY LAW ENFORCEMENT, should be required to comply with all open records laws to the maximum extent of the law. If you wish to prevent Hustler from capitalizing on the event, the state should simply publish the photos on some publicly accessible adult website. Then tell Hustler to get the photos there.

Can you imagine if the Atlanta Police Dept. somehow could have covered up the shooting of that 80-something year old woman in west Atlanta a couple of years ago (Ms. Johnson?)? Don’t give our government any loopholes to hide potential wrong doing. If legislation is passed on this issue, some sleaze bucket bureaucrat will use it to his/her advantage later.

I agree that it is an affront to the families of the deceased but there is a higher standard that applies.

Seriously?

March 8th, 2010
4:06 pm

In many cases in which LIVING people may be humiliated by evidence in a criminal case, a judge can order the records sealed. Sorry, but you can’t libel the dead. It is offensive and disgusting. The point is not, “Should Hustler publish these photos?” The point is – “Should your government be allowed to ignore laws it deems ‘distasteful’ at the moment?” Who is the judge of this distaste, by the way? What you may find offensive – and vice versa – I may not. I think photos of dead people – clothed or not – are pretty awful. But, like war, it’s real and it helps us understand why animals like Gary Hilton should never see the light of day.

Just like Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith’s autopsy reports and pictures, Emerson’s pictures are fair game: They are part of the public record, whether under the Georgia Open Records Act of the FOIA (remember, this was a FEDERAL CRIME; the GBI just did the autopsy). Flynt’s magazine probably will not publish such pictures since they would appeal only to necrophiliacs, not his typical subscriber–whoever that is. The bottom line is that changing the law to protect such pictures will be used against those wanting legitimate access to other material, much the same way the ill-conceived Patriot Act has been used to spy on law-abiding Americans. Give the damnable government an inch, and they’ll take a mile. Oh, and BTW, I am an arch-conservative, not some fetid Retardican or Democrap.

RE: Hustler magazine has requested, through Georgia’s Open Records Act, copies of documents related to the January 2008 murder and decapitation of hiker Meredith Emerson, but House Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) is urging the GBI to deny the magazine’s request for crime scene photographs.

Folks, I have been backtracking and researching Gary Michael Hilton & Associates, since 01/06/08, which began as a search for Meredith Hope Emersons’ remains. What I have discovered will simply break your heart.
Meredith Hope Emerson, fought GMH, mind, body, and spirit….She was buying time for a rescue from Law Enforcement. For four days she refused to give GMH, her PIN for her credit cards.
Meredith Hope Emerson, knew the magnitude of GMHs evil reign of terror and sacrificed her life, so that other innocent victims may live.
If not for Meredith Hope Emersons courage and heroic efforts, GMH, would still be preying on our families, friends, and loved ones.

I have commented many times concerning Gary Michael Hilton, torching his fiance’s house in 1982, with occupants in Dekalb Co., GA. Why wasn’t GMH, incarcerated since 1982? Why is the media(local & national)silent and not reporting this?

From a concerned citizen(GA Peach), who filed a FOIA request and after numerous delays:
HE: Gary Michael Hilton
************************************************** *************

http://www.tallahassee.com/apps/pbcs…urrentPage=529
He set two gallon jugs of gasoline in the carport of the Green family home with 2 strings leading up the driveway where he sat in his “BLACK CAMERO” ( A NEW CAR TO ADD TO THE LIST OF HIS VEHICLES) then set the strings on fire. They, Ms. Green and her family (her sister and brother) members heard a noise ran out of the house and were able to put out the fire with a hose. It happened at 0001 hours. When Hilton was driving off he hit a parked car, thus the hit & run charge. One of the young ladies in the Green family had dated Hilton a few times, but broke it off. That was in Feb. 1982. In May, 2 weeks before the fire on May 28, 1982 he started calling to harass her asking if she wanted to make some money prostituting for him. She said he sounded like he had eaten a few ludes and she hung up on him. He was arrested on First Degree Arson charges and booked into Dekalb County jail. He lived at the time at 5135 West Mountain St. #A-17, Stone Mountain, GA. The report indicates the Green’s signed statements that they knew who the arsonist was and could positively identify him as Hilton, but I guess he just found a way to talk his way out of it or the girls were just too afraid of him and what he might do next.

Case #82-103081 & #82-103082, the report ends with case is closed and cleared, pending criminal prosecution. Hilton signed for a copy of the report on June 11, 1982.

Gary Hilton Helped With a Horror Movie
A suspected serial killer Gary Michael Hilton helped produce a horror film over a decade ago.
Posted: 3:43 PM Mar 14, 2008
Reporter: Blaine Tolison
Email Address: blaine.tolison@wctv.tv

Story 20 Comments Font Size: Gary Micheal Hilton confessed to the murder of a North Georgia hiker before being charged in February for the murder of Crawfordville resident Cheryl Dunlap. Authorities are now finding out the suspected serial killer helped produce a horror film over a decade ago. The Leon County Sheriff’s Office says the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is in contact with the film’s producer.

The film called “Deadly Run” is about a serial killer who hunts women he sets free in the woods. The producer of the film, Samuel Rael, says Hilton came up with the plot. For the 1995 screenplay, he says Hilton suggested, “go ahead and let some beautiful women out in the woods and then they could be hunted down like prey.”

He even says Hilton helped find a spot for the shoot–a secluded cabin near Cleveland, Georgia. Just 30 miles southwest of the cabin, the body of Meredith Emerson was found, who Hilton admitted to killing in January. Producer Samuel Rael says he was friends with Hilton.

Rael said, “Everything that Gary did was crazy and unusual and odd, but not in a way that you think he would be violent.” Rael, also an attorney remembers defending Hilton on several cases from trespassing to arson. He also says, when he heard about the latest charges against Hilton, it was almost word for word from the movie.

09-??-07 John Tabor said in September he filed a compliant with authorities after Hilton threatened to kill him if he didn’t pay Hilton $10,000. At that point, he told Hilton he had to leave his property. “He cleared out his stuff over the next few days,” Tabor said. Duluth, Gwinnett County, Georgia.

***********************************
The above date is 09/26/07, according to my info. Tabor had paid Hilton $2500.00 and $600.00, of this amount before contacting the GBI. Tabor, contacted the GBI on 01/03/08, at 1PM to advise them that he was the POI in the Meredith Hope Emerson abduction. After Gary Hilton, called Tabor from the Huddle House/Marble Hill GA, he made no effort to contact the GBI or call 911.

Why did he set up the scheme or rouse to meet Gary Hilton in Atlanta 24 hours later? Meredith was alive in his van, when the call was made according to the medical examiner report. The call lasted over 10 minutes, according to the HH employees. Gary Hilton was very loud, abusive, anxious, and cursing. Tabor, stated that he was calm. Why the discrepancy in the description of Hiltons demeanor?

The GA Film Commission lists the credits for the movie. There is one omission, that is usully listed for films shot on location: “SECURITY.”
WHY IS THE INFO THAT I HAVE SUPPLIED TO LE, BEEN IGNORE?

Then on Jan. 18, 2008, what finally came to be admitted?

S/A HOWARD asked TABOR if he attempted to contact the GBI when HILTON had called him on January 3,2008. TABOR became visually upset and began to cry. He stated that he did not attempt to call anyone. HILTON contacted TABOR at approximately 4:41 p.m. and asked him for money. After taking the call, TABOR attended to some business requirements prior to receiving a call from ASAC JESSE MADDOX at approximately 6:30 p.m Though during the phone conversation TABOR told ASAC MADDOX that he had been trying to call, TABOR clarified to S/A HOWARD he had not actually tried to contact law enforcement. TABOR stated that “I thought we had him, the ruse was set up for tomorrow”. TABOR never contacted anyone about a “ruse” or about HILTON calling him. TABOR only provided the information about HILTON’s 4:41 p.m. call when he was directly asked by ASAC MADDOX (Two and half hours later on the phone, in the late evening of Jan. 3, 2008). EXHIBIT 174 (cross ref. Exhibit 21)

**************************************************

The phone call to John Tabor was made at 4:41 PM on 01/03/08. The response time to the Huddle House; Marble Hill, GA , 30148 by the GBI on 01/03/08 was ‘four hours due to Tabor’s failure to dial 911. ‘Huddle House & the Phone number; is indicated on caller ID, as verrified by me, yet Tabor, indicated that GMH called from a cell phone. The GBI’s time of arrival was 9:00PM. Meredith Hope Emerson was alive at the time the phone call was placed according to the Medical Examiner.
Why has this been silenced by the media (Local and National)? Precious Victim’s Lives depend on ‘Truth in the Media’.

They should hang their heads in shame…

Ask yourself; Does Hustler Magazine want Crime Scene Photographs or are they seeking the truth surrounding GMH & Assqociates Reign of Terror?

Gary Hilton’s License was queried 80 times in the ten years prior to his capture. This was in GA alone. We have him traveling from Hialeah FL to PA. I am confident that his victim total will exceed 150 victims. this number includes only the ones deceased. Due to the Stranger on Stranger abductions, normal investigative techniques are ineffective in identifying the unknown suspect.

Interesting Comment by NoGANative, from the Cheryl Dunlap Forum TDO:

I think kidnapping, rape, torture, murder, mutilation, and decapitation, etc. confirmed in 4 states over several weeks qualifies as a depraved serial killer, as several separate victims are confirmed. That’s not glorifying this guy, that’s the facts.

I saw this guy in the Chattahoochee National Forest in October ‘07, and later took the GBI to a campsite (Lumpkin/Dawson County line, USFS FS road 28-1, Nimblewill Gap Road, camp confirmed by the GBI) on the same day of the recovery of Ms. Emerson’s body. I’ve met many others who say or dealt with him in Georgia before his capture.
———–
I believe the speculation that Hilton took Ga Hwy 53 west to Dawson Forest from the turn-around in the snow above Dahlonega on Hwy 129 is wrong. He turned off Hwy 129 at Turner’s Corner and drove in to national forest off Hwy 60 past Wimpy Field, the US Army’s Camp Merrill, on to FS 28-2, past Camp Wahsega, and later, on to Ga Hwy 52 then south to Ga Hwy. From Hwy 52. Bailey Waters road connects to Afton Bridge Rd, and Amicalola House and on to Lindsey Ford/6 mile camping area, site of the recent double-murder in Dawson Forest, and on to the north end of Dawson Forest off Hwy 53 to High Shoals Road, where Ms. Emerson was later killed. Passing along the area Wolfscratch writes about. The Huddle House and Ace Hardware are west on Hwy 53.

Not only did the GBI fail to act on the direct tips from the Huddle House (not just the late admission by the complicit Tabor about the Hilton call from Marble Hill) that may have saved Ms. Emerson if the GBI had not bottle-necked tips and contacted county LEO in Pickens/Dawson/Lumpkin, but the GBI failed to act with smarts or dispatch to tips of sightings of Hilton in the Nimblewill area while he had Ms. Emerson. Instead of contacting local LEOs, including DNR rangers who know the area, and Amicalola State Park LEO/staff, GBI officers were sent to check the state park registry. Had they told the local services, and local media, the area would have been swarmed, instead of everyone wasting time on Blood Mountain.

Why was the GSP and DNR helicopter not on Blood Mtn? SAR team was told high winds, yet WSBTV heli was all over the mountian, landing at Vogel State Park. Was the governor, who got his helicopter license last year, and has had to make restitution to the state for heli-taxi trips, out for a flight? Check that out.

I have lots more on all this. I’ve waited the 2 years to start writing about it, and my focus will be on what the 4 states LEO contacts by federal FS, state officers, and county officers let slide, and most especially, how the old-school approach of the GBI worked against a good outcome. Had White County GA court filed the bench warrant for the abandonment of the other Astro van in the national forest above Unicoi State Park (2005), also near the AT, and also not far from Rabun County’s unsolved 2006 murder of a women found in the woods, this felon could have been arrested any of the many times he was pulled over or run off by the many officers who interacted with him. At least PC for a search would have lead to all the stolen goods he chose to retain from the car break-ins at trailheads, and cabin break-ins. Who were his fences? Who were his buddies?

In today’s communication-driven era, the British approach to crime solving–especially abductions and murders–of getting as much information out to the public as quickly as possible–usually results in a better outcome and quicker arrest or rescue. The GBI did not want even the info about the baton in the news, and Ms. Emerson’s roommate and others acting to get that out on WSB-TV/AJC led to witnesses immediately coming forth who were on Blood Mtn who ID’d Hilton. He was known to Vogle park, USFS LEOs Tipton and Arrowood had run him out of Rock Creek in August, NC LEO had run him out of Rock Gap AT shelter earlier, and a NC conservation officer sent him on for camping in a wildlife clearing off Wayah Bald Road, NC, and both of these are near where John Bryant’s body was recovered, and the FL women was last seen (Bryson City). FL also reports multiple agencies with LEO contacts in more than the forest where Ms. Dunlap’s body was recovered. The shotgun shell parts at the John Bryant body recovery scene, along with the death by gunshot weren’t explained, yet USFS and ATF burned 400 acres of the Pisgah’s Pink Beds area last year after finding a felon’s camp with gunpowder and bullet-making gear near–a precaution we’re told. A buddy? This guy was a drifter, too, and also a felon.

Much more to share, later, but the focus isn’t on how smart this guy and his deceit of being an ‘MS-stricken, Vietnam Vet on perpetual maneuvers’ odd-ball, but rather on how the multiple counties, states, and local, state, and federal agencies are not equipped to track such a person. Walmart does a better job of tracking shoplifters than our agncy databases. Isn’t that something we can affors to fix? LEO lives are on the line, too.

My call and email to Transylvania county the morning of Jan 3 strongly encouraging them to contact and follow what’s going on in Union Co Ga was ignored, as was my call and email of Saturday night, Jan 6 to Leon County detectives that they also check out the then-arrested Hilton. In both cases, in a few days, they went from publicly telling the press ‘No Connection’ to ‘prime suspect’ as the van full of evidence told the story. That the GBI chose to completely ignore so much evidence at the site I showed them the following Tuesday, with no admitted knowledge of either the Bryant or Dunlap cases, was very unsettling. Their reason was ‘not in the time frame’ meaning they only were concerned with the soon-to-be-closed Emerson case, making no effort in the field to look at the weathered material on the ground in front of them. (Some of the clothes and pillow cases, etc. are still there.) We may have been looking at Ms. Dunlap’s or Mr. Bryant’s clothing–articles that NC LEO might need to tie Hilton to that yet-to-be-indicted double murder we know he did.

I, for one, resent the new American politics of starving government, and my Republican Governor has reduced funding for the GBI, closing some of the offices that worked this case, and reduced the DNR game ranger (LEO) staff that works these woods. The Tuesday discovery of a dead, lost 84-year old Alzheimer’s sufferer in the Cohutta National forest, stuck in the forest service road, is another case of what happens when the safety net goes away. Same with the Saturday morning double-murder at the boat launch on the Amicalola River in Dawson Forest a few weeks ago. The Guv did get a new $18 million jet last year, and was at the Dubai Air Show last month. Meanwhile, the DNR goes wanting. And the federals, well the 6 officers and 2 ATVs for all of the 800,000+ acres of the Chattahoochee NF, is also close to having no coverage. Their budgets were stripped for off-shore wars, yet security in our public lands seems to be of a low priority. Subsidising airline security should be paid for by the flying public, protecting the commons should be a shared responsibility.

And Florida national forests are worse, but at least USFS LEOs can carry shouldered AR-15s when they are driving out squatters and meth heads from our public lands. REade about squatters in the Ocala NF, and meth labs.

And as to how many victims this guy got away with, who knows. The Troup county murder of December 07, unidentified burned decapitated women in bags with a Chamblee Dominos pizza coupon–that’s Hilton territory and on the path to Florida, but this nameless victim had a short news cycle. And the several missing women on the other side (west) of the Talladega NF in Alabama–Albertville and Sylacauga come to mind–any of those agencies even know of this guy Hilton? Or the unsolved murder of the 48 year old in Damascus VA, an AT town, fall of ‘07–just a few hours north of the Pisgah? If not Hilton, then it sure makes the case for a big relational database-that could even have public and LEO partitions for data. Can that be the good that could be made to come of these crimes? Not if our political will doesn’t demand it–and it starts with a healthy questioning or even a stern criticism of how the GBI and others chose to treat this case.

And, the last Hilton camp with the bagged trophies found in the Chattahoochee–that wouldn’t have even been looked at by federals if we weren’t still concerned about the most recent unsolved abduction in Union County…vote for resources and demand competent LEOs.

Folks, one of Gary Michael Hilton’s Campsite/Staging Areas was located in September 2009 at Coopers Creek WMA, Fannin County, GA, almost two years since Meredith Hope Emerson’s abduction. The Newspaper article of the discovery was generic at best(spoonfed by the PR Unit of Law Enforcement). I have labeled this Unit, the ‘Propaganda and Rumor’ Unit, due to the missinformation provided the American Public.
An example of this was the articles describing how many days that GMH held Meredith Hope Emerson Captive. the media(local & National) read that he held her for three days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday = 3 Days: GBI Math.
I will reveal some of the items founde in GM<H's Campsite Cache in my next post…

Geez people, get real.

FOIA does include crime scene pictures.

Hustler can not publish the pictures, it would be a violation of the obscenity statutes.

SO why does everyone have their Tatas in a tizzy over this?

Because it is Hustler and this poorly written article IMPLIES that the pictures will be exploited and published.

BTW, Common sense: you do lose all rights to privacy when you are dead, and rightly so.

There is Nothing immoral going on here, except a bunch of high and mighty loudmouths passing judgment about things they simply are not educated enough to have a valid opinion on.

Richard M, you’re absolutely correct. This is the intent.of the article;.to prevent the truth of of the botched Investigation which was a result of many factors. One was the missinformation given to the media that Meredith Hope Emerson, was lost on Blood Mountain although the k9s indicated that she had left the mountain. This antiquated strategy was employed to coral the media, preventing interference in the investigation.
The public, a very powerful and free resource, was squandered due to this media management decision.
Gary Hilton was asked by the jailers and bailiff at the Dawson Co. Detention Ctr., If you are so intelligent, why did you get caught?” GMHs response, “they haven’t caught me since I was 14 years old.” That’s 47 years. GMH, shot his stepfather, during a domestic quarrel when he was age 14 years…

GMH had no victim profile; 11 year old Levi Frady (1997) to 84 year old Irene Bryant and her husband John who was 81(pisgah National Forest, NC).

Gary Michael Hilton, is truly the Hannibal Lecter, of the 20th & 21st Century..

Yes, I’m sure Hustler is interested in investigating the crime where the perp confessed, led police to the body, and had her bloody clothes nearby his van. I’m sure they need to see pictures of the decapitated body in order to complete their thorough investigation. Keep your sick fantasies in your head please.

I’m liberal and I like Larry Flynt, but this is obviously a perversion of an imperfect law.

No “journalist” from Hustler needs those photos for any purpose. And even if Emerson’s photos need to be published for educational or historical purposes (like Holocaust photography), Hustler is not the appropriate vehicle for that.

Kelly Wolf, I agree that would not be my first or last choice of publications to air this story. The main street news media(Local and National) have been either silent or have fed missinformation spoonfed to them. Silence was Gary Hilton & Associates most Lethasl Weapon.

With photoshop technology, Hustler could generate facsimiles of the crime scene photos, if desired. This is not about the crime scene photos, IMO, but is an attempt to prevent the truth from emerging about Gary Hiltons’ reign of terror; magnitude and duration…..
I actually thought Hustler went out of business years ago.

January 10, 2008, six days after Hilton’s arrest, after tragically abducting, torturing, mutilating, and murdering Blood Mountain Hiker: Meredith Hope Emerson.

I located GMH’s garbage pile in his primary denWildcat Tract; Dawson Forest WMA, an area called Wolfscratch Wilderness…
GMH buries everything in black garbage bags.
I am a dowser, and the rods will actually track his movements and if he buries anything, they will indicate the location.
His garbage pile contained kids clothes, women’s clothes, and men’s clothes. One sweatshirt; a childs medium had written on it ‘Cale Haven Learning Ctr, Rex, GA. One of his staging areas had 30 to 40 purses.
I contacted LE, and 2 squad cars & a K9 unit responded. They thought that GMH, was a petty thief and drifter and had only killed once or twice for ATM cards. The k9 was never removed from the truck. The clothes were left on the ground…LE went back in service after a diagnosis of needed therapy.
Levy Frady(GA) GBI, was only 11 year old, abducted while riding his bicycle….
GMH was tried for raping, torturing, murdering, and decapitating Meredith Hope Emerson, in Dawson Co, GA. His trial went from arrest to sentencing in less than 30 DAYS. This was due to an antiquated DNA law(been corrected: hence Meredith’s Law). GMH’s DNA was sent off & returned in less than 24 hrs.
Cold Case Detectives from every Eastern State was waiting for the results. The Feds took over the investigation in March 2008, one day after it was closed by the GBI and ordered ‘Complete Silence’….

Gary Hilton attempted an abduction of another hiker the day before he tragically abducted Meredith Hope Emerson. She trusted her instincts and waited up for her friends. She was present at GMH’s Trial in Dawson Co, GA…

‘Another Fortunate victim of Gary Michael Hilton’

Tyrra Meserve, grew up in San Diego, during the ‘Night Stalker’ tragedy. It left a deep impact on her as well as the entire community.
The following is a story written by her:
A Close Encounter With A Killer Mind By Tyrra B Meserve Greene Publishing, Inc.Since the beginning of time, within every culture, in every society, there have been those who are incapable of adapting and blending within the boundaries of their communal environment. Driven by a force that is incomprehensible to the peers upon which they prey, they feed on the terror and panic their crimes leave in the heart of the community. Unable to control their carnal desires for more than just brief moments, they reside in the dark recesses of the mind, opportunistically seizing victims to compensate for shortcomings they themselves are unable to overcome. Behind false smiles, it is truly then that the eyes become the window to the soul, or in some cases, the lack thereof.In most instances, the serial killer acts alone, extracting pleasure from the anonymity that he presents. However, in rare cases, these predators find in each other a kindred mind, linking up to work together, proving the old adage of water seeking its own level, even for heinous reasons. Whether the union is long-term, or short-lived, these serial killing partners present a unique problem for law enforcement officers trying to solve crimes.Recent developments have allowed Gary Michael Hilton to be charged with the murder of Meredith Emerson, and Cheryl Dunlap, however, questions still remain regarding Hilton’s involvement with other unsolved murders. It is currently under investigation as to whether Hilton is indeed a serial killer, and, if so, how many other victims did he claim, and, in what areas. In a recent interview with a Madison County resident, there has also now arisen the question as to if Hilton acted entirely alone.Debra Stephens, a Madison resident for many years, recalls a strange event that took place back in 2000. A local, who knew some of the more obscure river access points and sun-bathing spots, was taking advantage of a warm summer’s day and the company of her dogs. As she was lying on her towel, soaking up rays, Stephens was startled by her companions barking.“There’s canoers who go up and down the river all the time,” she said “so I didn’t think anything of it at first. Then I noticed there weren’t any other boats in the water and the dogs were focusing up the hill on the other bank.”Following their line of sight, Stephens noticed two men standing at the top of the hill, on the other side of the river, watching her.“I thought it was kind of odd when I noticed they were wearing blue jeans, sunglasses and boots. Not really boating clothes, if you know what I mean.”When the men stepped back into the shadows of the trees and did not reappear, Stephens said her apprehension abated a bit and she returned to sunbathing. Then, a few minutes later, the dogs started barking again and Stephens, now nervous, looked around once more.
The dogs, trotting ahead of her, rounded a close bend and Stephens walked straight down to the waters edge to get a better view.“This older guy was paddling down in a canoe and it looked as though he was having a time of it. It was only he and his dog. At first, he asked if this was where they picked up the people for canoe rides. When I said no, this is private property, he kind of looked around, up the hill where the two guys had been.”It was at this point that Stephens said the older man looked like he accidentally flipped the canoe, trapping the dog underneath. As Stephens was debating whether or not she should jump in and help, she noticed the man glancing up, occasionally looking up towards where she had seen the other two men earlier.“He made it to the other bank and acted like he was going to lift the canoe,” Stephens remembered,“but then he just kept looking around and his dog was just laying there. His dog didn’t bark back at my dogs or anything. It was weird. It was almost like the dog had been through this before and he was trained.”When the man fell to the ground, he appeared to accidentally push his canoe back into the water where it started to float downstream. Deciding to lend a hand, Stevens started to get into the water on the opposite bank.“I looked up and there was one of the guys I had seen earlier, about halfway down the hill. I shouted up to him Hey, that man needs help, but he just looked at the older man, turned around and walked back up into the trees.”Stephens stopped the canoe from floating away, and then gave it a good shove back toward the old man on the bank. Deciding it was about time to head home, Stephens kept an eye on the man as she swam back to her side of the shore, gathered her things and got set to leave.“As I was walking back down the river bank to my truck, I glanced up the hill and there were those same two guys again. Well, one of them looked down at the older man and he looked back up at the guy and I thought they nodded at each other. When I passed by them on my side of the river, I remember thinking, now that’s weird; he doesn’t have anything in the canoe. Nothing, I mean, normally people have a life preserver, equipment, something. He didn’t. It was completely empty. Just him, his dog and a cane.”Stephens also found it disturbing that, as she passed the scene, both men that she had seen earlier had not only re-emerged, but they had picked up the canoe and were carrying it up the hill with the older man and his dog in tow.“I noticed that he wasn’t using his walking cane,” Stephens recalled.“He just followed them up the hill until they disappeared. That’s when I wondered how he had gotten the canoe down to the river by himself. There’s not a lot of places where we were at that you can drive up and drop a canoe, you have to hike it in and that didn’t seem like something he could have done by himself.“When I got home, I told a couple of people what had happened and they just told me I was nuts. I couldn’t help thinking that if I had gone over to their side of the river, I wouldn’t have made it back, but everyone I told laughed and said nobody was trying to get me, so I just pushed it to the back of my mind and tried to forget it.

.”Then, watching the news recently, Stephens got a jolt. A little thinner, a little older looking and worse for wear, Gary Michael Hilton looked like the man she had seen that day.“Naw,” Stephens said to herself.“I’m just spooked.”Letting it go once more, a week passed before on another airing of the local news, Stephens got a chance to hear Hilton speak.“I jumped out of my chair,” she said,“yelling, That’s Him! That’s the *!#* man from the river.”They were trying to get me,” Stephens stated with conviction “I know that now. I could feel that something wasn’t right. It was like they knew each other. It just felt wrong.”Sergeant Tim Baxter of the Leon County Sheriff’s Department was not able to give much information due to Hilton’s ongoing investigation; however, he is interested in connecting Stevens with the right authorities to take her statement.“The FBI is working with the different case investigators, developing a long term timeline for Hilton,” Baxter stated.“They are going back to before (Hilton) was born. So far, we believe he’s a loner, but we want to know where he’s been and whom he’s been seen with. We don’t want to rule out connections he may have to other cases.”As police still gather leads linking Hilton with other crimes, they are tracing his footsteps in the past. Only time will tell if police have caught all the right men.Staff writer Tyrra B Meserve can be reached at tyrra@greenepublishing.com

I am confident that Gary Michael Hilton had Sidekicks and Associates….

Due to the Stranger on Stranger abductions, many people were suspected, indicted, convicted, incarcerated, and possibly even worse…

I am confident that GMH & Associastes victim total will exceed 150 innocent victims…This is a very conservative estimate and includes only the ones deceased…

A Trail Angel Rises
An Elegy by Winton Porter
January 2008

Out on the trail, when a comrade falls, a trail angel rises.
Meredith, whose kind and loving spirit was cruelly taken from all those who knew and loved her, has joined the ranks of trail angels.
She will forever be our guide.

Because trail angels dance along the path of peace and joy forever.
Because trail angels watch over those who merely want to walk forever.
Those who simply want to live.
Those who want to live simply.
And beautifully as Meredith did.
Merediths light once illuminated the path of hundreds of friends and family members as well as among the many, many she touched along the graceful trail of her life.
The light Meredith brought us has not been extinguished.
It has risen.
It now illuminates the path of millions
Across our nation.
Around the world.
And as her light rises, we come to know its source.
A source inextinguishable.
An inner source.
It came from Merediths compassion.
Her kindness.
Her love of outdoors.
Her love of animals.
It now fires our love.
Our compassion.
Our resolve to live better lives.
Kinder lives.
It warms us, consoles us, unites us here and now.
And as her light rises,
It ignites in us the good of our natures.
It reveals to us the beauty of these mountains.
It fires in us a renewed joy for living, for those around us, for the walks we share today.
Her light reminds us not to wait but to love while we still can.
Now….Stop. …Listen.
Hush and truly listen.
Hear the drums?
Feel them on the wind?
Hear the human tales of triumph and sadness that echo through these vast and ancient mountains?
These are human tales, bouncing off the cliffs,
Reverberating among the high tree lines,
Following the deep gaps.
Filling our hearts.
Separateness is an illusion, my friends.
There is no me.
There is no you.
There is only We.
We of this earth.
We the one.
I am you.
You are me.
Together , we are bound by common experience:
Love. Life. Hope. Joy. Sorrow. Pain. Memory.
Meredith Emerson is you.
You are Meredith Emerson.
Follow her light.
It will guide you well.
Remember.
Out on the trail, when a comrade falls, a trail angel rises. ..

Article, plus link for video
“I’m a sociopath man. I’m what they call an anti-social,” Hilton told GBI agents.For the first time, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has allowed Channel 2 access to its entire case against Hilton, who is serving a life sentence for murdering hiker Meredith Emerson.Channel 2’s Jodie Fleischer spent the day going through four hours of interviews with Hilton right after his guilty plea in the Emerson case.The tape is different from past tapes. First, because it’s video you can see Hilton’s movements and what gets him worked up. But also because it doesn’t completely focus on the Emerson murder – it instead shows how agents were trying to use Hilton to uncover information in other murders, including the three he’s already suspected of and any others that may still be unsolved.

“You could take me to the front door of this jail and say go forth and sin no more. I would literally have to turn back around and walk back in here,” said Hilton.He refers to his behavior as a rampage and appears to admit he’s killed more than once.”

Gary Michael Hilton, Killer of Meredith Emerson: Campsite found

Convicted murderer Gary Michael Hilton’s campsite was found in Chattahoochee National Forest, northern Georgia. Gary Hilton was convicted of murdering Meredith Emerson last year, and is now on trial for the murder of Cheryl Dunlap. Gary Michael Hilton is suspected of killing Jack and Irene Bryant, but has not been charged.

A hunter scouting for deer signs stumbled on the campsite Friday in Chattahoochee National Forest in Fannin County, Ga., near the border between Georgia and Tennessee, said Sgt. Justin Turner of the Fannin County Sheriff’s Department.
Source: citizen-times.com
*****************************************

Folks, this campsite/Staging area is where Gary Hilton was destined with Meredith Hope Emerson the night of 01/01/08 after abducting her from Blood Mountain and unsuccessfully attempting to use her ATM cards at a Bank in downtown Blairsville and then in Gainesville, GA.
Due to 2 ” of snowfall, blizzard conditions, elevation, and a Sheriff working an accident he detoured to Hwy 52 west, ending up in an area known as Wolfscratch Wilderness.
Gary Hilton, hid in plain sight in this are for three days until his capture and arrest on 01/04/08.
The items found in his Coopers Creek WMA Campsite are very daming. One of the items discovered was a dog skeleton tied to a tree..
I will list the other known items in a future post..

Gary Hilton; a Stealth Predator, was a Hunter and a Professional. what he meant by this statement is that, if he ever got his evil hands on you, you did not live to testify..

Gary Michael Hilton, was a copycat of Serial Killers prior. This is why he remained Stealth and his identity was oblivious to Law Enforcement for decades.
Gary Hilton’s childhood was riddled with violence. His mother shot and killed his father at the young age of five years old…

************************************
WE TV; FBI Files: Robert Hansen: The Alaskan Serial Killer,

,that I am confident Gary M. Hilton, based the 1994 Movie; ‘Deadly Run.’ The documentary went into more detail than is available on the net, and involved actual investigators that worked the case.
**************************************
Snipet from John Douglas; FBI Profiler on the Hansen
: Serial Killer case:http://www.francesfarmersrevenge.com/stuff/serialkillers/profiling.htm
‘Hunting the Hunter’
I began to get an idea of how Hansen operated, and it gave me a cold, sick feeling in my stomach. It seemed clear to me that he was definitely the killer, but he wasn’t simply killing these women. I believed he was releasing them into the woods and then hunting them down like animals—and this proved to be the case….

We gave our assessment to the authorities, and they were able to get a search warrant. Hansen’s rifle, which matched the bullets that killed the four women, was found at his home, along with some cheap jewelry, ID cards, and other items taken from them. There was also a sort of “journal,” an aviation map marked with the locations of his victims’ bodies.

Confronted with the evidence, Hansen confessed.
****************************************
FBI Special Agent John Douglas, profiled Hansen to a tee. He had pegged him with a studder or lisp, as an independent business owner, with a family. Hansen owned a bake shop where LE frequented(pastries) and was a pillar of the community.
Although one of his victims escaped and went to police, Hansen was able to persuade them that the accusation was false. The Anchorage PD closed the case by order of the Chief. The Alaska State Patrol had an active Serial Killer investigation in progress at the time….

I am confident that GMH, based the ‘Deadly Run’ movie, on Hansen’s trail of terror, using his mo and signature of hunting his prey in the Wilderness, as a template. http://www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/16683281.html ) on Hansen’s Trail of Terror. Robert Christian Hansen, was convicted for the murder of only 4 women, which most were prostitutes, but admitted to over 33 victims in Alaska. He was originally from Iowa, and LE was confident that he had many victims, before moving to Alaska.

Hansen was an arsonist and mirrored many of GMH’s personality traits.
Their were many, many parallels to GMH. In fact you could switch names in the documentary and it would have been virtually identical to GMH’s trail of Terror, except GMH, had no victim profile.
He began killing prostitutes around 1980. After paying for their services, he would kidnap and rape them; he would then fly them out to his cabin in the Knik River Valley in his private plane and stalk and kill them with a hunting knife and a .223-caliber Ruger Mini-14 rifle.
Said he would toy with his prey for days once reaching the Wilderness and then hunt them. Although he would vary his methods of abduction, he would handcuff them as soon as he put them in the vehicle, then pull a pistol on them. Said that if they tried to alert help, that he would kill/shoot them and the rescuer.(sound familiar?)
Something interesting from the Behavioral Science Unit/FBI; the Trophys/souveneirs could be any personal item of the victims; clothing, jewelry, or even Dr. Licenses. They are kept to relive the evil acts in the future.

This has been on our local news, and the whole thing is just totally heartbreaking. Because they came so close to nabbing this guy. He was waltzing in and out of stores, restaurants, while the van was parked somewhere very close…. I feel so much pain for her parents, another tragedy…. another scumbag ruining lives. Here’s a piece from our local paper:

A turn down a different trail might have led searchers to the 24-year-old hiker before it was too late.

GBI investigator John Cagle: One of his biggest cases and mostly like last before retirement was Meredith Emerson’s death.

Still fresh in Cagle’s mind are the hours spent with her parents and his interview with Gary Michael Hilton, the scrawny vagabond who admitted he kidnapped Emerson from a North Georgia hiking trail just for money he expected she would — but never did — give him.

“The thing that bothers us, or me, is what was going through her mind — what she was going through. That’s troubling,” said Cagle, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent who was lead investigator on the Emerson case. “I think about how close we came.”

Emotionally, the Emerson case hit the investigator like no other.
**********************************
If the GBI had notified the local Sheriff’s Depts in this area and the public sooner, I am confident that this would have ended much different. I saw his van in the woods, adjacent to my home; at 6:30 on 01/03/08, and thought that it was campers.
There ws the news conference on 01/04/08, where the only answers given were: “I can’t answer that question, this is an ongoing investigation!” Then on 01/06/08, the CYA, or PR phase began when it was announced that only LE personnel would be allowed to search for Mereith’s remains. The locals and hunters in this are could have found them in hours. I personally talked to a man that confronted Hilton, trying to gain access to a locked dumpster, and a locked fence, 01/04/08 at 2 PM, in the Atlanta Tract: Dawson Forest WMA, where her remain were found.
Only a rocks throw from where Merediths’ remains were located, Levi Fradys’ remains were discovered on Oct 22, 1997, and Patrice Endres remains were found aproximatewly seven years later.
In GMH’s 01/07/08 GBI interview, Hilton says, “this isn’t the only body thats been dumped out here”…

‘Gary Hilton’s Campsite/Staging Area: Safe Haven’: Coopers Creew WMA: Fannin County, GA’

The Camp Host located Gary Hilton’s Cache. At the time of discovery he was unaware that it was GMH’s. He contacted the Game Warden, who then searched the items in the cache:

Several military style duffle bags; filled with ladies clothes..

zip lock bags containing strands of hair. (whos hair? trophies?)

a dog(skeleton)tied to a tree. (was it a victim’s dog?)

Books(Novels) GMH, read and emulated other serial killers prior causing his MOs and Signatures to morphe. ‘Life Imitating Art’…

Meredith Emerson & Cheryl Dunlap were given Books to read. Cannibals & Kings, and Flowers in the Attic…

Hand trucks/dolly

several pistols (appeared to be pellet pistols)Three pellet pistols were found in GMH’s van when he was arrested on 01/04/08. Why the multiple pellet pistols?
Although pellet pistols would cause panic and terrorize victims(prey), they wouldn’t be fatal. The hunt could continue for days. (see: Deadly Run Movie: Hunting Humans)

Misc. Camping supplies..
***************************
When the DNR Game Warden came to a garbage bag containing a pair of ladies panties with GARY HILTON’S name written on it, they backed out and called in the GBI & Fannin County Sheriffs Department. Witnesses told me that the GBI wanted nothing to do with the discovery.
(There are over 425 missing persons ‘Cold Cases’ in GA, alone…

The items from the campsite were sent to FDLE for Forensics Testing.

Why is the news media silent? Why is there a Gag order on all Discovery Evidence & Information?
IMO, the truth is an indictment of the Justice System. GMH had 4 friends. Three were attorneys: ‘Officers of the Court’, including one that produced the Deadly Run Movie in 1994 with GMH’s consultation and participation:
GMH hand picked the Cast and crew
GMH picked the film locations(Cleveland-Clarksville, GA) as well as the abandoned cabin…
GMH, came up with the name and the plot, as well as assisted in the creative writing.
GMH, offered advice, tips to the lead actor on how to be a proper Serial Killer..
White County, GA Fire Commissioner furnished the Fire Apparatus used in the Movie..
Barrow County Sheriffs Department furnished Law Enforcement Vehicles for the Film.

Many Movies are filmed after a Serial Killer is captured. How many Prolific Serial Killers helped produce a Movie with their Defense Attorney’s Support, 13 years before their capture?

Samuel Rael: Dekalb County, GA Attorney said that he knew Gary Hilton was a sociopath. Just didn’t know that he was violent. Wouldn’t you think that the 1982 Arson with occupants would raise a red flag or two?

Dated comment from Meredith Hope Emerson Legacy Guest Book:

August 15, 2009
Just got back from Blairsvile, Ga, attending the Meredith Memorial, excellent turnout, very touching memorial service and rembrance walk. Arrived a few hours early and volunteered for a few hours. After the walk and lunch, we walked up the trail where she was abducted and to the Neal’s Gap Trading Post, Blood Mountain.
Meredith’s family sent Karen, an email to all attendees thanking them for their support and that Meredith’s precious companion; Ella, now weighs 77 Pounds. Karen; Meredith’s friend, and the ‘Right to Hike’Org., did a great job organizing the memorial.
There were hundreds of Fire & Police & searchers there, as well as hundreds of caring people, in honor of Meredith’s memory.
Although Meredith was on this earth a short time, she will live in many people’s hearts forever…

**************************************************************************************************************
On August 12, 2009, another innocent victim vanished without a trace from Blairsville, GA, only a few miles from where Meredith Emerson was abducted. Her name is Kristi Cornwell. It has been over two years since Meredith’s abduction from Union County, yet a pre abduction plan hasn’t been considered as of this date. Even Walmart has an abduction preplan and they aren’t in the Public Safety Business…

Kristi Cornwell’s case seems to have joined the over 425 other missing Cold Cases in GA…

Maybe Representatives Ralston and Chambers could use this opportunity to pass a law that prevents stranger abductions:

Gary Michael(Mack) Hilton, specialized in a variation of the “Express Kidnapping” wherein a victim abducted, taken to an ATM, forced to make a withdrawal and then executed and the body hidden so that the card won’t be cancelled.
If this crime pattern were tracked by law enforcement, he would have been caught much sooner. But, because it is not, the police were completely unaware of his presence. There are others out there, such as Bruce Mendenhall, the “Town Mall Killer” Boca Raton, Tameka Newson etc. So why aren’t the police tracking these predators?
A: Because the banks prefer that the extent of the problem remain out of sight and out of mind due to a minimal expense. The technology is available.
Law Enforcement has no control over this. However Representative Ralston and Chambers do….

Another probable innocent victim of Gary Michael Hilton & Associates:

Been focusing on Rosana Milana, another probable victim of Gary Michael Hilton, that vanished in North Carolina,and have found a treasure trove of info on her case..

Like Cayle Bywater, Rosana Milana, was stigmatized with the Bipolar Label. Rosana, was also burdened with the Schizophrenia label, which would indicate a paranoid and dillusional person which at best would be unpredictable. Right?

Would it interest you to know that Rosana, was a world traveler that had previously travelled and explored Europe alone, by train, bus and airplane.

When someone is reported as missing, and they are handicapped with these labels, IMO, LE doesn’t investigate their dissapearance with the same intensity as others. I am confident that this was the case with Rosana, and Cayle…

http://www.citizen-times.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090621/NEWS01/906210338/1322

Citizens Times has a sketch that resembles GMH, when he accompanied Rosana into a trailhead shop, emulating a travelling preacher.

When Gary Hilton was arrested on 01/04/08 for the abduction, rape, torture, mutilation, and decapitation of Meredith Hope Emerson, Criminal Profilers of the BAU& fo the FBI were sent to observe, interview and advise.

Folks, you do not wake up one morning at the age of 61 years old and commit crimes of this nature.

I picked up a nonfiction book; “JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS” BY JOHN DOUGLAS(1997); Pioneer of the FBI’s BSU/BAU, and Author and FBI Profiler.

He penetrates the minds and motives of the most terrifying Serial Killers. Of course GMH, wasn’t on their radar when this statement was made. He is one of the pioneers of the FBI’s Elite BAU and VICAP, as well as many of the techniques, strategies, and procedures used in tracking and identifying unidentified subjects today, can be attributed to his research and experiences on his journey into the abyss or darkness…

Prologue: ‘In the Mind of a Killer’

This isn’t the Hollywood version. It isn’t sanitized or prettied up or rendered into art. This is the way it really happens. If anything, it’s worse than the way I describe it…

“AS I HAD SO MANY TIMES BEFORE, I PUT MYSELF IN THE MIND OF THE KILLER”..
Special Agent Douglas journeyed into the darkness of evil, into the abyss.

Special Agent Douglas, goes on to say that he also puts his head into the head of the victim also, to be able to see the whole picture….To understand an Artist, you have to view the Paintings…

This experience would have to be very traumatic and could cause a strong minded person to cry a river of tears. Especially when the victim total will possibly exceed 150 + victims of all ages, genders, creeds, and colors, over decades, as in the Gary Michael & Associates; Reign of Terror….

As does Priests that perform multiple exorcisms, Agent Douglas, paid a very hefty price with his health, even though he possessed a high tolerance level, due to the enormous ‘Evil’ he encountered…

Until recently the only book that I have read since college is ‘Wolfscratch Wilderness’; a walk back in time of this area of the Apalacians in North GA, where I live. Unless of course, you count the 380+ pages of redacted pretrial evidence, in the Death Penalty Trial of Gary Hilton, for the abduction and murder of Cheryl Dunlap in Tallahassee, FL.

I am confident that the books given to Cheryl Dunlap, and Meredith Emerson, by GMH, came from used book and thrift stores. GMH, had been seen in the Jasper, GA ; Thrift Store, while holding Meredith Emerson hostage.

I have had excess time on my hands lately and thought I would go to the Jasper Thrift store and check out their selection of books. Of 3 shelves of books, 1 shelf was dedicated to ‘Serial Killers’. I purchased several of the books. After researching the authors, I found that although the stories are fiction,(portrayed as fiction, for liability purposes) many are based on actual events, with consultants from the Mental Health Field, LE, profilers, & Justice Officials, both retired and active.
The events of one of the books ‘MASKS’, by Sallie Bissell, took place in Pisgah, NC, where John & Irene Bryant; 2 of GMH’s eldest victims were abducted.

The last book that I read is titled ‘Mind Tryst’, by Robin Carr. After reading the book, I inadvertently opened the cover and saw where the books original purchase was made:

‘A BOOK NOOK’

BUY-SELL-TRADE

3342 CLAIRMONT RD

ATLANTA, GA 30329

(Clairmont Rd. is aprox 70 miles from the Jasper Thrift Store)

This is Gary M. Hilton’s old stomping grounds…Coincidence, maybe…

Gary Hilton: Misfit with a mean streak | ajc.com

Gary Hilton was officially charged with the murder of hiker Meredith …. though Tabor let Hilton live at a building he owned on Clairmont Road
Something that I noticed to be curious about the majority of the over 25 books purchased was that their copyright dates were from the 1980’s to the late 1990’s.
Many of the books were of serial killers that were copycat killers of individual serial killers past.
Gary Michael Hilton, had no victim profile, breaks all molds of serial killers profiled, changed his MOs, signature, and method of abduction.
He was/is very evil, creative and emulated a soldier on a perpetual maneuver,
as well as a ‘Traveling Preacher’, long distant hiker, kayaker, and others.
************************************
some quotes from Hilton interview done by NC LE/April 2008

——————————————————————————–

When asked how the other prisoners & guards treated him, GMH said:

“No one messes with me here. They treat me real good.”

“I’ve got my own T.V. ‘I READ’. I’ve got my meals cooked, served…the dishes are washed. My laundry is done….Hey, I love it!”

“I’m gonna f—— raise hell, total hell. I’m not gonna be happy unless it takes three to four years to go to trial. Unless we have a 1,000 person jury pool, and unless we have at least two changes of venue. And that’s just to begin with (laughs).”

Folks, Over the past two years, I have been banned from many forums due to conjecture and speculation. Their words, not mine…
It was obvious to me that GMH, was very intelligent, cagey, calculating, demonic, ritual Serial Killer, with no victim profile and no human emotions. Within 4 days of backtracking him, I analogized him as a mountain lion. He would hunt his prey, capture them, return with them to his den, and devour them; mind, body, and spirit…
Gary Hilton & Associates victims have no voice…

The investigation into killer Gary Michael Hilton was “CLOSED” in Georgia in February 2008 according to a story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

I emailed all media outlets, including Drudge, and said “Closed My Buttocks! It was re-opened the next day under the United States Attorney General’s Office, Behavioral Science Analysis Unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation!”

One of the cases being re-investigated is the murder of 11-year-old Levi Frady.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation: On October 22, 1997, after a day of playing with his friends, 11-year old Levi Frady headed toward his rural Forsyth County home.

It was getting dark but his house was less than a mile away, and he and his trusty bike had made the trip dozens of times.

Levi would not make it home.

He was abducted, driven to a neighboring county, and murdered. The next day, his body was found in a wooded area. Law enforcement are still searching for his killer(s).

If you go to this web site and scroll down you will see two Persons of Interest in Levi’s disappearance. Gary Michael Hilton is Person of Interest #2, and I met the Person of Interest #1 in the shed at the abandoned Densmore Farmhouse.

GMH’s eldest victims are John & Irene Bryant; 81 & 84 years old. (Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina.)

GMH had no victim profile…

Dated comment from my low tech blog, early 2008: http://glennindawson.blogspot.com

As you all know, I have been backtracking Hilton since he held; Meredith Hope Emerson, in an abandoned Farmhouse within 200 yards from my home. I started this journey on 01/06/08, searching for her remains in abandoned houses and wells, once I put the info together that he was in my neighborhood in a rural area of the North GA Mountains, known as : “Wolfscratch Wilderness.”
Let’s just say, due to a spiritual experience, familiarity of the Forest, fair tracking skills, I was able to pick up his trail and track him throughout the wilderness. I have located many of his campsites, hiding places, as well as items that belonged to his victims: Purses, clothing, Hiking Hoods, Scarfs, gloves, Hairbows, suspenders, shoes, and his trashpile which contained burned items, including clothes. He was captured inon 01/04/08, this is an inventory of his van: DeKalb: Yellow rain jacket may tie Hilton to Bryant …
A yellow rain jacket seized from Gary Michael Hilton’s van [in DeKalb Co. … The search warrant inventory includes 20 shirts, 30 hats, 11 pairs of gloves, …

The one item that was not on the van inventory was GMH’s shovel It is leaning against an oak tree across the river from my home…

Gary Michael Hilton, does not fit a single SK profile but encompasses many Profiles as well s MO’s that are unique to him….
I have been hiking, hunting, and fishing this area of the apalacians known as wolfscratch wilderness, for over 40 years. Although I know it well, GMH, knew it better than I.
When I started backtracking him at daybreak on 01/06/08, after concluding there was a 3 hour window that put him in this area. I put his head into mine, as an actor does a character, to be able to effectively track him. This was a very traumatic experience. I literally became him. All my senses were magnified: intelligence, memory, etc. I could visialize where he went and the evil rituals he did when he arrived!
I was assaulted three times. A camper said, “I thought you were him, that you had escaped the Dawson County Jail.” he had his knife opened in his jacket pocket for defense should he need it..
All the campsites and staging areas that I backtracked him, as well as his burial and ritual sites were ewewitnessed by others.

I am a retired Fire Captain; AFD Haz Mat/High Rise Rescue, have experienced large life loss in my career but none that has affected me as this journey…
When I describe him as being demonic, this is not a simple description, it is accurate. He is pure evil and emits an evil aura and a distinct pungent odor.

I have documented the journey with thousands of comments & hundreds of pics etc., for alibi and memory purposes.

Hunter’s have found remains all over these Appalacian Mountains and beyond. A Lieutenant with Union County Sheriffs Office, GA,, that participated in the Emerson Investigation said, “we have located three of GMH’s campsites in our county alone and there are victims clothes scattered all over these mountains and we will never know who they all belong to.” So Sad…

Due to an antiquated State Law. Gary Michael Hilton’s DNA. as well as his time line wasn’t available until after he was convicted in GA for the tragic abduction, rape, murder, mutilation, and decapitation of Meredith Hope Emerson.’Merediths’ DNA law’ was swiftly enacted by the State Legislature, due to this tragedy. Ironically a futile attermpt was made to ‘Close the Investihgation of GMH & Associates, by the GBI in late February 2008, but was reopened the following day, due the probability of many other known and unknown victims. GMH, was a Stealth Predator; identity unknown; oblivious to Law Enforcement and the Justice System, yet preying on unsuspecting innocent victims for over four decades.

From a GBI agent, “when GMH’s DNA came back from the lab, in less than 24 hours after conviction,’Cold Case’ Detectives from every adjacent state were waiting for it.” Although it has been almost two years, the test results from the remains of victims found, has not been shared with the public by LE or the Justice System via the media.

The truth is an indictment of Law Enforcement and the Justice Department, IMO. If GMH & Associates have been doing his evil deeds for decades, which I am confident to be true, many innocent people were suspected, arrested, indicted, convicted, and incarcerated due to the stranger abductions and relying on circumstantial evidence to prosecute, whatever the cost.

It is virtually impossible to undo the slamming of a judges gavel… If it were possible, the resulting sound would obviously be ‘Silence’…

Gary Hilton, may have went on a rampage when John Tabor axed their Relationship in Sept 2007, but his Trail of Terror had been going on for decades:

Gary Hilton tried to murder me in 1985

——————————————————————————–

I didn’t recognize Hilton at 61, but the name sounded familiar. But Clairmont Road was too much of a coincidence to be believed, and there was the Cumming, Ga. connection. Still, 1985 was a long time ago.

And then I looked at his record, and it was him. The guy who tried to murder me with a hunting knife in a biker bar parking lot at Clairmont and Buford Highway one night at closing those many years ago, a guy I had to sit next to at a probable cause hearing as my testimony was the basis for charging him and a cohort for something from hit and run to aggravated assault, actually back over, take the truck out of reverse, and re-run over a guy we were drinking with.

Yeah, I was drinking with Gary Hilton before he tried to murder me. Sort of. They came over and sat down and tried to buy cocaine from us, then went out at closing and waited for us to come out to kill us. Thought we were undercover or something. The guy was crazy.

Bill, a guy that lived in the apartments on Clairmont where I did, we went from the dayroom to the bar down the road to talk about trying to make some money off of developing some software, some things never change, he went out first carrying a pitcher of beer, take home I guess you could call it. Not that we needed it. I testified at the grand jury that I estimated I drank two or three pitchers, but who’s counting?

I have posted about that grand jury testimony several years ago in Chandra Levy discussions as we discussed grand jury testimony. I ended up writing a chapter in Murder on a Horse Trail, Grand Jury, to explain the grand jury aspect in Chandra’s disappearance. But my posting on my testimony in Atlanta back in 1985 is lost in the internet cloud by now.

When I came out of that bar Hilton was kicking Bill in the head on the ground. I tried to calm him down and he pulled his hunting knife on me. As I testified at both the grand jury and hearing, he was lunging at me with that big knife and I was going backwards as fast as I could, trying to stay out of reach of that knife and not trip on anything, not daring to turn my back because he looked like he could throw it. He finally gave up and went back to his pickup. He backed up over Bill, put it into drive, and ran over him again. He seemed pretty determined to kill him.

I got the license plate number while he was trying to back up over me too. Hell, it was almost imprinted on me if I hadn’t dived out of the way in time. I yelled the license plate to the bar manager at the door, who was calling police, and police brought them back a few minutes later. They nailed that pickup going up Buford Highway in no time.

Bill ended up living through that. He had a collapsed lung, cracked skull, and broken ribs, but he got well enough that I went to see him at the hospital one day, and he told me he was going to sue the SOB. He wanted that truck, the truck he survived.

I next saw him at the probable cause hearing where I testified, and he lived to see Hilton and his friend Rodney fingerpointing at each other claiming that the other one was the driver.

But it was Hilton. Hilton wanted to kill people, even back then.

One other note of interest. Hilton and his friend Rodney and the people they brought with them, family and Rodney’s girlfriend who audibly gasped at my testimony, were living in Cumming at the time.

That’s apparently why we keep seeing Hilton’s name come up in Cumming in murders. It’s not a coincidence.

Hilton should have been put away a long time ago and never let out. May Meredith Emerson and all of Hilton’s other victims rest in peace.

This victim got lucky, as did Valerie Burner, Nancy Linguish, his fiance in 1982, her brother and sister, and many, more. Yet if GMH, ever got his hands on an innocent victim, they didn’t live to testify. GMH, is very creative, deflective, intelligent, and was a hunter and a professional.
CP by Wolfscratch: Cumming, GA is where GMH, made a phone call from a convienence store on 01/04/08, discarded the bloody clothes of Meredith Hope Emerson, and where Ella; her black lab puppy escaped…

Snipet from a couple of Ralph Daughtery’s comments from previous link:

I agree with that from my experience, SuziQ. He was nearly 40 years old at the time but was very into survivalist if you will. He talked about Nam a lot and when the guy he later ran over a couple of times with his pickup pointed a finger toward him to make some point (I’m not sure exactly, I wasn’t paying that close attention),

Hilton said, “I’ll eat that finger”.

I had to intervene to sort of cool things off before he jumped across the table.

Gary Hilton, didn’t stalk or prey on any innocent victims in his safety zone. There is many elderly widows that live in this area, on secluded farms, etc. They would have been easy prey for GMH, and Associates, if the motive was easy money. He enjoyed the cat and mouse games that he played with his victims, almost as much as he did with the chess like maneuvering with Law Enforcement and the Impotent Justice System, which he played like a fiddle…

Braswell, GMHs Hunting region extended from Hialeah, FL to Pennsylvania, where he was eyewitnessed camping with multiple sleeping bags on his clothesline.

BOB INGRAM OF THE GEORGIA BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION FEARS THAT AMERICA AND GEORGIA ARE PRODUCING MORE SERIAL KILLERS, MEN AND WOMEN WHO KILL SECRETLY OVER A PERIOD OF WEEKS, MONTHS, EVEN YEARS. “IT’S AN ONGOING AND A GROWING PROBLEM, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.” SAYS AGENT BOB INGRAM WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR INVESTIGATING MULTIPLE MURDERS FOR THE G.B.I. “SERIAL KILLERS ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO CATCH,” SAID AGENT BOB INGRAM. “THEY ARE VERY MUCH A TEXTBOOK TYPE OF KILLER. AND THEY WILL DEFINITELY FOOL YOU.

IT IS LIKE THEY HAVE A ‘MASK’ BEHIND WHICH THEY CAN HIDE AND WILL.”

AGENT BOB INGRAM AND AGENT RALPH STONE BOTH OF THE G.B.I. HAS HAD FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE WITH MANY OF GEORGIA’S MOST DEADLIEST SERIAL KILLERS AND THEY LIST THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS OF A SERIAL KILLER:SERIAL KILLERS DO NOT USUALLY FIT THE PUBLIC’S NOTION OF A MAD KILLER. IN FACT, MANY OF THEM ARE QUITE INTELLIGENT, ARTICULATE AND CUNNING. SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND THEIR PERSONALITIES SUPERFICIAL, BUT THEY ARE EFFECTIVE NONE THE LESS.

THEY EXHIBIT A TOTAL LACK OF COMPASSION, REMORSE OR GUILT FOR THEIR CRIMES AND MOST OFTEN, THE BLAME FOR THE CRIME IS SHIFTED TO THE VICTIM EVEN IF THE VICTIM WERE PICKED AT RANDOM.

THEY HAVE HUGE EGOS AND ARE VERY ADEPT AT MANIPULATING PEOPLE TO SATISFY THEIR EGOS. THEY ARE VERY GOOD MANIPULATORS OF OTHER PEOPLE’S FEELINGS AND NEEDS.

THEY ARE NOT SO MUCH ASOCIAL AS ANTISOCIAL, i.e., THEY HAVE INGRAINED RESENTMENT TOWARD, AND HATRED OF, SOCIETY.

THEY ARE VERY MUCH INTO GAME-PLAYING. PART OF THE KICK THEIR EGOS GET FROM THEIR CRIMES IS THE IDEA OF BEWILDERING POLICE. IT BECOMES A GAME OF, “SEE HOW SMART I AM AND HOW STUPID THE POLICE ARE.”

SERIAL KILLERS ENJOY HAVING POWER AND CONTROL OVER PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY OVER ANOTHER PERSON’S LIFE. THIS OBSESSION WITH POWER MAY EXPLAIN WHY SO MANY SERIAL KILLERS ARE ATTRACTED TO POLICE WORK.

THEY MAY NOT ACT LIKE IT DURING THE COMMISSION OF THEIR CRIMES, BUT MOST SERIAL KILLERS ARE SANE, NOT INSANE. THEY SUFFER FROM A PERSONALITY DISORDER, NOT A PSYCHOSIS. PSYCHOTICS, SEVERELY DISTURBED INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH REALITY, TEND TO LEAVE MANY CLUES AT THE CRIME SCENE; SERIAL KILLERS ON THE OTHER HAND, USUALLY LEAVE FEW OR NONE.
AS A RULE, SERIAL KILLERS, PARTICULARLY SERIAL KILLERS, DO NOT CONFESS…

‘GARY MICHAEL HILTON: HANNIBAL LECTURE OF THE 20TH & 21ST CENTURY’

I am confident that the discovery of the unusually high volume of women vanishing in the southeast was due to the establishment of VICAP in the mid 1980s.

With new techinlogy and leadership within the FBI, the BSU(now the BAU, for obvious reasons), took on a very important role in major investigations and were no longer considered witchcraft, or voodoo investigative techniques. Although housed 60′ underground, to protect them from the light, their profiling techniques proved to be very accurate.

Since the BSU is the unit which is brought in to assist when a serial killer is preying in an area, yet illusive or stealth, oblivious to LE, as was Gary Michael Hilton & Associates.

The most prolific Serial Killer of the 20th & 21st Century; GMH, with extensive knowlege of forensics, police strategies and procedures, military trained and disciplined, made a mockery of normal LE Agencies. This is due to the lack of expertise dealing with SKs as well as the targeted victims being strangers. GMH, changed his MO, signature, victim profile, as well as copycating the exact style as other Serial Killers, while adding a tryst of his own unique creativity. GMH, honed his predator techniques, building confidence escalating to the point of taunting his expertise.

I am confident that GMH, although very intelligent didn’t acomplish this alone. He had sidekicks as well as enablers. GMH, did not have the means to skirt the Justice System, time and time again without assistance.

The profiling process consists of several steps. Some of these steps are:

evaluation of the criminal act.

the specifics of the crime scene or scenes.

analysis of the victim, or victims, if located.

evaluation of the criminal reports of the local LE Agency conducting the preliminary investigation.

evaluation of ME or coroners autopsy report.

develop a profile with critical offender characteristics

When conducting an interview or profiling an unidentified suspect, the principle relied on is that behavior reflects personality. GMH, was a master of emulation which presented unique problems with identifying his personality traits. It would be interesting to see the profile prepared for the suspect(GMH) before his capture. I am convinced that one of the primary reasons that the expert profilers, that are usually very vocal in the media, have been silent is that GMH, fits no previous profiles….he is an anomally.

In GMH’s interview of 01/07/08, there is a reason for his answers, as there was a reason for the specific questions asked by the GBI…Although the interview was plagued with lies by GMH, a treasure trove of information will be garnered from his responses.

Although there are numerous lies which will be obvious under scrutiny, the one that stands out the most is when he denied that he raped MHE. Once the truth was pried out of him. He was how many times. GMH, responded, “once”. He knew that the number of rapes would be impossible to detect by LE…

‘Drugs, Porn, Rituals, Torture’…

The Inalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness, were denied Gary M. Hilton’s innocent victims, for decades. The public’s safety was jeopardized due to silence by LE & the lack of information released to, or demanded by the media;’ National & Local’…They should be ashamed and are complicit, enabling them to remain Stealth….

It would seem to me that lessons would be learned after the devastation of Families and Communities caused by Serial Killers, such as Ted Bundy, Ottis Toole, Lucas, Bobby Joe Long, Jeremy Jones, Gary Hilton & Associates, and many, many, others, that advanced technology such as DNA and other resources would be utilized.
The most powerful of these resources, knowlege, communication, and information provided the American people via the media…

IMO, this is another pathetic, yet effective political attempt by the PR Unit to cause interference, by creating public outrage. The focus or emphasis placed on the crime scene photos, rather than the FOI request for all Investigative records, which was obviously leaked to the media is an indicator of previous impotent media management techniques, employed by the GBI’s leadership and the other Politicians involved.
Hustler’s readership which has dwindled to 500,000 magazines in recent years from a high of over 3,000,000, will now fly off the shelves. By creating this ‘media firestorm’, the opposite results intended have been achieved.

As in any culture, or in any community spread across this great Nation, there are those who refuse or are unable to adapt to a civilized society, skirting the rules and laws that guide the rest of us through life. Fortunately they are the exception rather than the rule. Due to their selfish need to fulfill their evil desires or sexual fantasies, their lack of empathy for others, as well as their self assurance of remaining anonymous or stealth by hiding behind their masks of normalcy (at least in the darkness of their minds), they resort to the unimaginable, or unconscionable..
These psycopathetic predators, who know no boundaries of sanity, prey on unsuspecting innocent victims. Many of these predators hone their skills with each innocent victim devoured, increasing confidence and causing escalation.
Although, most of these predators have an uncanning ability to shield their motives, their expressionless face, hiding behind their fake smiles, combined with their lifeless eyes can not conceal this lie.

The only effective weapon that we all posses, is detection: Be cautious, adhere to personal safety rules, and ‘Trust your Natural Instincts’.

They spent the entire night in a grid search of Blood Mountain and beyond.”

“As you can imagine, time is of the essence, to get as much as we can get done as quick as we can get done, especially with the temperatures as brutal as they were up there,” said Sims.

Straight-to-video movie plot mirrors real-life killing of hiker Meredith Emerson

Hilton chose shoot locale — 30 miles from where Emerson’s body was found

Filmmaker who worked with Hilton said he was shocked about Hilton’s arrest

By Rusty Dornin

CNN

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) — When attorney-turned-movie producer Samuel Rael decided he wanted to make a film about a serial
killer in 1995, it was former legal client Gary Michael Hilton who he says came up with the plot.

Rael’s adviser was the same Gary Hilton who confessed in January to killing 24-year-old Meredith Emerson in the North Georgia

mountains and is the prime suspect in the killings of a Florida woman and a North Carolina couple.

Rael claims Hilton thought it would be a good idea to have the killer be out in the woods.

“Go ahead and let some beautiful women out in the woods, and then they could be hunted down like prey,” Rael says Hilton told him.

Watch Rael tell his disturbing account »

Rael was shocked when he discovered that Hilton had been arrested and had confessed to Emerson’s murder. Quickly, investigators

hinted that Hilton might be a serial killer, linking him to three murders in two other states.

In all three, the bodies were dumped in the woods.

“He was a criminal,” Rael said. “And he’d be the first to admit it. He might have been a sociopath, but he was a happy one and an

animated one. One who, quite frankly, I never would have thought in a million years. … Well, he had criminal instincts, but he was not

a violent person. I was wrong about that.”

The movie Rael and Hilton worked on was released straight to video. It was called “Deadly Run.”
“I don’t know if I came up with the ‘run’ and he came up with the ‘deadly,’ but somehow, as with all the film, he collaborated and

helped me figure out what to do,” Rael says.

It was Hilton, according to Rael, who found one of the film’s prime shooting locations:

As opposed to a Death Penalty Trial for the Murder of one Innocent Murder Victim: Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, who would benefit from the Green River Prosecution strategy being implemented for Gary Michael Hilton? I have listed three, but sure there are more..

* The Families of the unknown Victims from several States, by providing some semblance of closure.

* Law Enforcement, by soloving or closing out many of the Missing and Murdered Victims; ‘Cold Cases’(425+ in GA alone)

* The innocent victims that have been suspected, arrested, indicted, convicted, incarcerated, or worse, due to the stranger on stranger crimes, lack of resources to link GMH & Associates to the victims due to statistical driven investigations and the pressure by the victims’ families and community to facilitate an arrest.
**********************************************************************************

The Obvious and not so Obvious reasons that support the Green River Proscecution Strategy, being used in the GMH, Death Penalty Trial:

* Prompt Creation of a Task Force consisting of multi State, Multi Jurisdictions, including Behavioral Profilers from the BAU of the FBI.

* Silence by LE and the Justice System.

* Silence by the Media(Local & National)

* Lack of communication within the FBI and other State Law Enforcement Agencies.

* Noncommunication with Family Members of the suspected victims: John & Irene Bryant, Rosana Milana, etc.

* Lack of updates on DNA results for suspected victims. (Michael Scott Lewis, Sticher Road Garbage Bags; LaGrange, GA)

* Unmarked LE(GBI & FBI, according to my info)at the Coopers Creek WMA Campsite for several days after the evidence from the cache was shipped to FDLE: ‘Task Force Headquarters’.

Scargot: From Websleuths Forum Gary Hilton:

I have been mostly lurking on this discussion for quite some time. I do have something to add but understand that I am not going into detail for several reasons. First of all, I knew GMH from age 14 – 17 in Miami Florida. I went to school with him. He attended Miami Springs Junior High School in 9th grade and then entered Hialeah High School in 10th grade. He dropped out of school in either his junior or senior year in high school to join the army. The last time I saw him in person was either 1963 or 1964 when he stopped by the high school I attended and told me he was joining the army. When I knew him he lived in Hialeah with his mother and step father. Hialeah is a large suburban city within Metropolitan Miami area. The incident referred to at age 14 was a domestic disturbance between him,his mother and step father. His step father was shot during the disturbance. His step father lived, it was a juvenile court issue, no charges were filed to my knowledge.

He called me in 1982 when I was living in another state. He had gotten my phone number from a family member in Miami by telling them he was someone else, representing a fictitious company and needed to get in touch with me. We spoke briefly and I hung up on him because he seemed to be talking very strangely. I had no contact with him after that.

I have been contacted by the Public Defenders office in Tallahassee, therefore I do not intend to say anything in detail here that could possibly affect any potential testimony I might have to give at a later date.

Many movies have been produced depicting the evil deeds of previous Serial Killers once they were aprehended, convicted, and incarcerated, such as Ted Bundy, Gary Ridgeway, Richard Ramirez; Night Stalker, Son of Sam, Etc.

How many of these Serial Killers past, assisted their Attorney,(Officer of the Court) in the production of a movie(Deadly Run) mirroring another serial killer(Robert Hansen), who possessed the same demonic traits, thirteen years ‘Prior to Their Capture’?

How many of these notorious Serial Killers past, lives were entertwined with ‘Officers of the Court’, Safe Havens were the Forests, pulled multiple teeth to apear more evil, stated that when they came off their meds that the ‘Demons’ came back? How many of these prolific Serial Killers past, Evil ‘Trails of Terror, were brought to an abrupt end, single handedly, by one of their innocent victims?

The obvious answer is; none…Gary Michael Hilton, is an anomaly. He fits no profile….

If you leave ‘Wolfscratch Wilderness’ and go to Blairsville, GA, if you go right, it will lead to Blood Mtn. and the Herbert Reece Trail where Meredith was abducted. If you go left, it leads to Murphy, NC, another haunt of GMH, where he was very active. He could cover 3 states in less than 45 minutes by auto.
*****************************Nancy Linkesh will never know how close she came to being Gary Hilton’s victim.

The 36-year-old Gainesville sales representative crossed paths with the suspected serial killer on the Byron Herbert Reece trail in Union County one day before he abducted Meredith Emerson there. The story of her encounter has made its rounds through cyberspace by way of a cautionary e-mail she wrote to a group of old friends.

Hilton, 61, was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to Emerson’s murder and remains a key suspect in the deaths of three others in North Carolina and Florida.

Linkesh said she never wanted or sought publicity for her encounter with Hilton, which was briefly mentioned by District Attorney Lee Darragh when Hilton pleaded guilty to Emerson’s murder on Jan. 31.

Darragh did not mention Linkesh by name, but spoke of Hilton, on the day before Emerson’s kidnapping, “having approached another hiker … she was with other people, however.”

Linkesh and a group of four others embarked on a two-mile hike up the trail on Monday, Dec. 31, stopping near the top to have a midday lunch before heading back down. By the time they started the hike down, it was 3:30 p.m. and the temperature was dropping. Linkesh had not dressed warmly, so she took the hike down at a quicker pace, getting a few hundred yards ahead of her friends.

It was there she saw the dog with the shiny red coat, and its balding, white-haired owner, wearing blue nylon pants with a sheath around one leg and a half-full hiking backpack.

“That’s a beautiful dog, what’s her name?” Linkesh said, starting a conversation with Hilton, whose back remained turned to her as he walked down the trail. He told her the dog’s name was Dandy, like a fancy dresser, and that it was a “red Retriever.”

The two then engaged in brief small talk about the dog, never pausing from their brisk walk down the mountain.

Then Hilton, she said, became suddenly agitated. “He said he gets so angry with people who come up on the mountain who are not prepared,” she recalled. “He said he’s surprised more people don’t die.”

“He turned around and pointed where I was stepping, and said, ‘Right there, you could step there wrong and break your leg and lay there. In an hour you’d be hypothermic.’”

That was the only time she got a clear look at Hilton’s face. “The brief time I saw him was kind of creepy,” she said.

Hilton, she said, used disparaging terms to describe local rescue workers, and said it would take five hours, “best-case scenario” for anyone to get to her if she was stranded and hurt. “At that point he asked me if I was alone,” Linkesh said. “I said no.”

Hilton seemed to let out a frustrated grunt, “huh,” she said. Then he asked if she had a cell phone, commenting, “most days people carry a cell phone with them.” Linkesh, whose hiking companions had cell phones, said “well, no.”

Linkesh said she kept looking back to make sure her friends were in sight. At one point, she was too far ahead to see them. “He made me feel uneasy, but not uneasy enough not to talk to him,” she said.

As the trail branched off, Hilton kept walking straight, while she and her friends went to the left. The entire encounter lasted about 10 minutes.

“I said, ‘It was nice talking to you,’” she said. “He was far enough away that I couldn’t understand him. He threw up his right hand and barked something.”

As the group got to the bottom of the trail, one of her companions looked up to see that Hilton was behind them again, having apparently doubled back.

Linkesh thought no more about the strange man with the dog until her husband called a few days later to tell her that he was the person of interest in Emerson’s disappearance, which occurred at the same location the day after her hike.

Interviews with law enforcement officials followed, but it took several days for Linkesh to grasp the full impact of the encounter.

“I just was thinking it was a weird coincidence.” she said. “I don’t think I could really get my head around it.”

Eventually, after talking with a family member, Linkesh came to the conclusion that Hilton had been “shopping her” as a potential victim.

“As time went on it dawned on me that it was a really close call,” she said.

She sent out the e-mail to a small group of old friends as a cautionary story, telling them “to keep in mind that the world is full of bad people and they are very good at manipulating situations to get you involved with them … ‘Stranger Danger’ applies to grown-ups, too.”

The e-mail was forwarded and forwarded again, and took on a life of its own on the Internet, drawing more attention to Linkesh then she ever wanted. She received hundreds of e-mails and was hounded with requests for national television interviews.

“I didn’t want to be seen as a publicity-hound,” she said. “I’m just not interested in that. I’m a very private person.”

Linkesh hopes she can use her experience to teach others about how close they can come to real danger.

The lessons learned, she said, are “never let your guard down, always be vigilant. It’s sad to say, but you can’t strike up a conversation with a stranger any more. It’s not worth the risk.”

Partial C/P, from a previous pst:
What’s equally substantial about this confession is that Hilton speaks with no emotion. His voice is flat and devoid of any feeling or sympathy or sorrow. The 61-year-old confessed killer talks about how he kidnapped Meredith. He said he targeted her because she was a woman and he wanted her money. He figured he could make her give him her ATM card. But Meredith kept giving him the wrong ATM password number.

What’s chilling is Hilton’s comment that once he kidnapped her he “never had any intention of letting her go.” This is why law enforcement and abduction experts say it’s vital that you fight off your attacker with all you have.

What is inspiring to us and something that needs to be noted is Meredith’s desire to live.

“She … grabbed the knife,” Hilton said. “I lost control of the knife and then I produced the baton. She fought that and I lost control of the baton—and I’m good too. . . . I had to hand fight her and I still couldn’t get control of her. She would uh, feign or pretend that I was in control and then start fighting again. So I had to, I had to hit her a number of times.”

Hilton chained Meredith to his van and kept her there for days.
Hilton speaks with no emotion because he has none.
He was a Soldier on a mission! In his evil, demonic mind he thought that he was a two tour Vietnam: airborne Ranger. GMH was Stationed in Germany…

Snipet from link above:During most of the ten years that Hilton worked as a telemarketer for John Tabor’s DeKalb County business Tabor said the word “monster” never came to mind.

But Tabor says a year ago Hilton started to change, claiming he was ill and taking a variety of medication. “I know at one point he told me he really needed the medication, that when he stopped taking them, the demons came back,? Tabor said. Tabor said Hilton’s behavior grew increasingly odd, then threatening. Tabor said over a decade, he’d advanced Hilton as much as $10,000. Last September Hilton demanded more. “He told me he wanted $10,000. He said ?I don’t care how you get it, but you better give it to me or else,?” Tabor said. “He said it would be the easy thing to do, or I’d pay the price.”

Tabor called police and told them Hilton was a danger. “I had to get family members out of the house and I armed myself and I remained armed 24-7 from that day forward until he was captured,? he said.

It was Tabor who called and notified authorities that the man they were hunting in connection to the disappearance of Meredith Emerson was likely Gary Hilton. That same day, with law enforcement officers desperately searching for him, Hilton called his former boss. “He seemed very calm, acted as though nothing had happened nothing was wrong. He was ready to come back to work,? Tabor said.

Again, Tabor called the GBI and within hours, Gary Michael Hilton was in custody, charged with the murder of Meredith Emerson.

Actually John Tabor didn’t call the GBI when Gary Hilton called him at 4:40PM on 01/03/08. GMH, first called Tabor from Weaver’s Amoco(pay phone), but due to a bad connection, went next door to the Huddle House and called back on the HH’s Business Phone. GMH, talked to Tabor aproximately 15 minutes. According to the employees(verified by me), GMH was very loud, agitated, and cursing.
John Tabor, did not dial 911, although the Huddle House’s Phone Number is vividly displayed on caller ID. John Tabor says that he had important Business to take care of?

(According to the ME, Meredith Hope Emerson was alive when the phone call was made by GMH) A County Sheriff works only yards from the Huddle House at the bank in front of the Huddle House.

The GBI called Tabor at aprox 7:30 PM to ask if GMH had a cell phone. This is when Tabor told them about the phone call by GMH and rouse(scheme) he had concocted… The GBI arrived at the Huddle House; Marble Hill, GA 30148, Fours Later with multiple Squad cars and Hellicopter.

According to my info, GMH, went to the Dollar Store, only 2 blocks from the Huddle House at 8:30PM. His purchase: plastic wrap & Duct Tape…

Why no 911 call that any 7 year old would have made?

So Folks, should the focus be on Crime Scene Photos, requested from a rag that nobody reads, or should Gary Hilton’s Associates and Sidekicks be identified and prosecuted?

There is over 425 Missing Cold Cases in GA alone. How many of these innocent victims can be connected to GMH & Associates’ Reign of Terror?

investigators in LaGrange wondering whether Hilton may be involved in yet another killing, though officials are quick to dismiss any known connection. Still, there are “obvious coincidences,” said Capt. Mike Nixon, chief investigator for the Troup County Sheriff’s Department.

On Dec. 6, a passing motorist discovered the body of a woman — still unidentified — missing hands, feet and head. The mutilated body was in five black plastic garbage bags along Stitcher Road in LaGrange, which is west of Macon near the Alabama line.

Although an attempt was made to burn the bags, some evidence was recovered, including a Domino’s Pizza coupon from Chamblee. The address on Hilton’s arrest warrant for Emerson’s kidnapping is on Clairmont Road in Chamblee. Nixon said investigators believe the woman was killed in metro Atlanta.

“We’re looking into Hilton. We’re looking into everything,” he said.

Dismembered Body Found; Police Looking At Gary Hilton

Gary Hilton pleaded guilty to Meredith Emerson’s murder.

ATLANTA — Detectives said he is a crazed serial killer who is suspected in a half-dozen killings across Georgia and Florida.

All of Gary Hilton’s alleged victims were found dismembered in some woods.

Now, investigators in central Florida said there is a case there that’s getting a closer look because of its possible ties to Hilton.

Investigators and dive teams swarmed the Tomoka River where Michael Louis’ body was found in Dec. 2007. Louis’ body had been dismembered, put in plastic bags, and dumped in the water. Police said they had no solid leads.

“We really have not been able to put together a solid motive (as to) why somebody would have wanted to do that to him,” said Sgt. James Gogarty with the Ormond Beach Police Department.

Now, evidence has popped up that has caused police to look again at Hilton.

Hilton is currently serving time for decapitating and dismembering a young woman, Meredith Emerson, in the Georgia woods. Police said Hilton’s method of killing fits in the Louis case.

GMH wore a burial mask while using Cheryl Dunlap’s ATM Cards. GMH, is very knowledgeable about ancient religious history. Burial Masks were worn during the Neolithic Period(Stone Age). GMH, gave Meredith Hope Emerson, a book to read before her demise on 01/04/08: ‘Cannibals & Kings’..

I am confident that the new strategies used by the FBI and other Law Enforcement Agencies is from lessons learned in the Gary Michael Hilton: Serial Killer Investigation
Since he was apprehended on 01/04/08, I have been monitoring Serial Killers in the Eastern US, and their sketches or pics have been released to the public via the media promptly. There have been four Serial Killers, since then and they were all arrested or killed within a short time. One very important observation is that there were no more lives lost of the innocent victims once their sketches or descriptions were shared with the public via the media…
The American Public is a very valuable & free resource when utilized..

This man (Hilton) stalked me at the Rainbow Springs State Park in Dunnellon, FL in February 2004.

I was walking my two dogs at the time, and that did not seem to phase him.

I had the creeps from the second I saw him. He tried to get to me even with my dogs there, when a park ranger drove up on his golf cart.

I ran to my car and was just getting into it when he came racing around the corner towards me. (He was in the front parking lot- I was in the very back.)

Had it not been for the park ranger, who knows what could have happened. There was another complaint about him a day or two before this.

He had Leon County tags…And a dog in the front seat.

I have been haunted by this man ever since, and I know that serial killers don’t start killing at 61. He’s been doing it for years.

I just wish that he had been caught before these poor people died that way. It breaks my heart.

he copies and pastes endlessly, and sorry, to say, does repeat the same thing over and over.
That having been said, I am sure it was upsetting to have the Emerson murder in his area, and I believe he feels that she would still be alive, if the Dunlap case had been quickly solved…….since Meredith was murdered after Cheryl.

NNY, the reasons for my repetition is due to the silence by the media & the Justice System, in GMH & Associate’s; ‘Trail of Terror’.Gary Hilton held his last victim; Meredith Hope Emerson(Blood Mountain, GA Hiker) within 200 yards of my home in an abandoned Farm House. Meredith Hope Emerson, fought GMH, for four days, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
He had been doing his evil deeds for decades and if not for good, over Evil, he would still be preying on innocent victims.
GMH, was thought to be a petty drifter by Law Enforcement. He was arrested on 01/04/08, yet her remains had not been located. I started an independent search at daybreak on 01/06/08 in the area of Dawson Forest WMA, an area named; Wolfscratch Wilderness, by the Cherokee Indians.

I located the Abandoned Densmore Farm House and one other location where he held her. I contacted the Union County Tip Center and alerted authorities. Several LE Agencies responded including a k9 Search Team. They took several items of evidence in for forensics testing. (they have twice returned for more items according to a GBI Special Agent)

Once I located the first staging areas of GMH, I would receive tips from the local Appalacian people that saw him in other areas. When I located his primary den(campsite, located in the Wildcat Tract; Dawson Forest WMA) which contained his trashpile buried in black garbage bags, which contained purses, kid clothes, womens clothes, mens cloths, hairbows, etc. I contacted the local Sheriff, and they responded with 2 squad cars and a k9 unit.
They said that he had only killed a couple of women for the money from their ATM cards and that I was consumed, was hindering them from doing their job, and needed to seek therapy….
The clothes etc. were left on the ground and ignored. GMH was considered a petty thief & drifter. It was obvious to me, due to his residue that he was much more than a petty thief. I also located his icebox (in the ground) and several spots that I dowsed which indicated several graves, with multiple remains.
From the signs and residue, it was obvious that he was very intelligent, calculating, and cagey. I analogized him as a Mountain Lion; hunting his prey, bringing them back to his primary den and devouring them. GMH, had no victim profile, nor human emotions. He emited an evil aura and a pungent odor, similar to that of a goat..
After a few months and several threats from family members to have me comitted, the truth began to emerge. GMH’s IQ range is within the top 10% of the world. News broke on the ‘Deadly Run’ movie(1994), which is a remake of the Most Dangerous Game, Robert Hansen: Serial Killer(Alaska), ‘Wolf Creek’ (Australia), which GMH & his Attorney produced in 1994; about a serial killer hunting women in the Forest.
The movie which GMH, helped to create is a virtual autobiography of GMH’s life. Samuel Rael, GMH’s Attorney, produced the movie, which is about abducting women, securing them in an abandoned house in the North GA Mtns, releasing them in the Forest and then hunting them as prey… The Forest was GMH’s safe haven.
Here it is over 18 months later, they haven’t comitted me yet and I find more info each day. GMH, was an anomally. He was a copycat of other serial killers prior with a tyrst of his own thrown in for confusion and contrast…
He honed his skills and creativity, changing his signature and MO to cause confusion for LE & Vicap and the Behavior Analysis Unit of the FBI. GMH, was well read in Police SOPs, Strategies, Communication, Forensics, Hunting Schedules(Hunters are the eyes and ears of thge Forest), etc.

GMH, tags & license was queried over 80 times over the last decade by the GA DMV alone. Many of these queries were in National Forests, Hunting Clubs and private Posted Property. Over a dozen queries were in White County, GA where the Chatahoochee National Forest is located and the ‘Deadly Run’ movie was filmed.

Although GMH, is serving a life sentence in GA, this was primarily agreed upon to get his DNA distributed to Cold Case detectives in the Eastern US and beyond. Due to an antiquated law, GMH’s DNA couldn’t be shared with other agencies until his conviction(hence Meredith’s Law).
GMH went from arrest to conviction in less than 30 days.
Once convicted his DNA had a turnaround time of less that 24 hours. He is facing a Death Penalty Trial in FL for Cheryl Dunlap; retired nurse; very spiritual. GMH, is linked to 13 victims according to my info. This victim number will grow rapidly and tremendously. GMH is truly the Hannibal Lecter of the 20th & 21st Century..

I am confident that Gary Michael Hilton, had Associates & sidekicks.

With the media frenzy caused by this FOI Request, which, by the way is a common occurance, being leaked to the press(AJC) with an intended spin, will result in Hustley Magazines flying off the shelf..

. Meredith Hope Emerson, fought Gary Michael Hilton, mind, body, and spirit for four very long days. She was buying time for a rescue by Law Enforcement. That rescue never came due to several factors, one being missinformation being fed to the media by the GBI and UCSO. Due to Meredith’s courage and heroism, Gary Michael Hilton & Associates decades long reign of terror was abruptly brought to an end saving the lives of many innocent victims in the future..

Hilton’s Boss John Tabor Speaks Out…

Snipet from link above:During most of the ten years that Hilton worked as a telemarketer for John Tabor’s DeKalb County business Tabor said the word “monster” never came to mind.

But Tabor says a year ago Hilton started to change, claiming he was ill and taking a variety of medication. “I know at one point he told me he really needed the medication, that when he stopped taking them, the demons came back,? Tabor said. Tabor said Hilton’s behavior grew increasingly odd, then threatening. Tabor said over a decade, he’d advanced Hilton as much as $10,000. Last September Hilton demanded more. “He told me he wanted $10,000. He said ?I don’t care how you get it, but you better give it to me or else,?” Tabor said. “He said it would be the easy thing to do, or I’d pay the price.”

Tabor called police and told them Hilton was a danger. “I had to get family members out of the house and I armed myself and I remained armed 24-7 from that day forward until he was captured,? he said.

It was Tabor who called and notified authorities that the man they were hunting in connection to the disappearance of Meredith Emerson was likely Gary Hilton. That same day, with law enforcement officers desperately searching for him, Hilton called his former boss. “He seemed very calm, acted as though nothing had happened nothing was wrong. He was ready to come back to work,? Tabor said.

Again, Tabor called the GBI and within hours, Gary Michael Hilton was in custody, charged with the murder of Meredith Emerson.
*****************************************************************************************************************

Actually John Tabor didn’t call the GBI when Gary Hilton called him at 4:40PM on 01/03/08. GMH, first called Tabor from Weaver’s Amoco(pay phone), but due to a bad connection, went next door to the Huddle House and called back on the HH’s Business Phone. GMH, talked to Tabor aproximately 15 minutes. According to the employees(verified by me), GMH was very loud, agitated, and cursing.
John Tabor, did not dial 911, although the Huddle House’s Phone Number is vividly displayed on caller ID. John Tabor says that he had important Business to take care of?

(According to the ME, Meredith Hope Emerson was alive when the phone call was made by GMH) A County Sheriff works only yards from the Huddle House at the bank in front of the Huddle House.

The GBI called Tabor at aprox 7:30 PM to ask if GMH had a cell phone. This is when Tabor told them about the phone call by GMH and rouse(scheme) he had concocted… The GBI arrived at the Huddle House; Marble Hill, GA 30148, Fours Later with multiple Squad cars and Hellicopter.

According to my info, GMH, went to the Dollar Store, only 2 blocks from the Huddle House at 8:30PM. His purchase: plastic wrap & Duct Tape…

Roger DePue: 21 Year Veteran FBI UNIT CHIEF of the Elite FBI BAU:
Author of Between Good & Evil…

My job has been to try to stop human predators before they kill again, and after studying them so closely over so many years, to me their traits seem clearly recognizable.

Evil is more than a vague notion. It is an entity, and it is manifest on the earth. It has reflexes and intuition, senses vulnerability, and changes its form to adapt to its surroundings. Those who do not believe the Devil walks this earth have not seen the things that I have seen.

Evil is not a discrete entity that springs forth fully formed. It is born in the mind, takes root there as fantasy, and prospers when normal human restraint can no longer contain it. I have seen it devour the personalities of men like Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Ted Bundy, turning them into blank-faced sociopaths who clearly know right from wrong, but choose, time and again, to follow their own base urges, with complete disregard for the terrible human suffering they cause.

I believe that every act of homicide causes a slight unbalancing in the world, and that it diminishes life’s universal equation. In the interest of justice, it is imperative that someone try to right that imbalance.

The task of fighting evil can take a terrible toll on the people who are charged with it. It can cost them their families, their equilibrium, their capacity for joy.

One of the pioneers of the FBI’s Behavior Science Unit, Dr. Depue was first assigned there in 1974 as a Supervisory Special Agent. He served as an instructor and researcher until his promotion to the position of Chief of Behavioral Sciences in 1980, a post he held until his retirement from the FBI in 1989.

Regarding his work with violent predators, Dr. Depue says: “Understanding the fantasy is very important. Many times in crime scene you can see fantasy. Many times the criminals with intense fantasies will draw victimizations. In prison and criminological research you will find all kinds of drawings where the fantasy is still alive”.[2] This led him to coin the term “leakage”, which basically means that one’s fantasies consciously or subconsciously tend to leak out.[3] It also allows offender profilers obtain information on a criminal’s motivation.

When I was a young man, a friend taught me the ancient art of dowsing, and after a time, I became something of a practitioner myself, finding water underground as a kind of parlor trick for friends. It might seem odd that a man so rooted in grim reality would take an interest in something so ethereal.

In fact, I’m fascinated by the unseen forces at play in the lives of human beings.

Grave Dowsing:

Trying is believing. I stepped slowly across a burying ground, carrying two brass dowsing rods ahead of me. Held level and a little higher than my waist, the 21-inch rods pointed straight ahead. An additional five and a half inches of brass turned down at 90 degrees through my fingers.
With my fingers curled, the long brass of the rods lay across my index fingers between the hand and first knuckle. At the 90-degree bend, the short handles pointed straight down, curled inside my fingers, excluding the two smallest digits. The brass rode against the outside of my pinkie fingers. Thumbs stayed folded out of the way.
As I moved on to a grave, the rods turned inward toward each other and aligned parallel to the plot. The sensation was only as eerie as watching the play of a compass needle. I was doing this under the tutelage of an expert, Jasper dowser Joe Chastain.
A longtime resident of Pickens County, Chastain is retired from Lockheed. He started dowsing when he was nineteen years old.
“I didn’t have a teacher,” Chastain said. “The first time I ever used the rods, an old farmer had some. I was in a little disbelief.” But as the rods acted in his hands, Chastain discovered there was something to it.
Tradition calls for a forked peach branch when hunting for water, but that is unnecessary, Chastain says. Any forked stick, dry or green, works just as good, the expert said. “The forked stick that the old-timers use works very good with water,” Chastain said. “It works with me too. I just don’t like it.”
“Brass is easier,” Chastain explained. “I like to think it picks up better, but that’s just me……

Joe Chastain is a ‘Master Dowser’, and was self taught, over 40 years ago. He locates graves and marks them for Historical Societies, Law Enforcement, Developers, and Private Citizens locating Ancestor’s family plots.
About 5 years ago, I witnessed Joe dowse the James Daniel Cemetary, for the Marble Hill Historical society. Seems someone had stolen the Marble Headstones, and with decades of neglect, the forest had reclaimed their location.
I was intrigued, and began dabbling in it myself. A few days after the journey began backtracking Gary Michael Hilton, late in the evening, a local business owner informed me of witnessing GMH, at the Wildcat Tract Campsite: Dawson Forest WMA, on many occasions. Said that his makeshift clothesline contained as many as a dozen sleeping bags.
After learning this information, with nightfall approaching, I drove to the campsite/staging area/ den, to scout it out.
Once I arrived within aproximately 100 yards from the entrance to his den, I was overwhelmed with emotion. It was obvious to me that I had discovered and entered his ritual grounds. His many victims were crying out for revelation…
I cried a river of tears…

Due to the darkness, I returned to my home and contacted Master Dowser Joe Chastain, that night before I dowsed GMH’s primary den, for suggestions and tips. He gave me a crash course, and was very helpful with his counsel and suggestions.
After a very long night, I arrived at the primitive forest campground before daybreak.
If you have never experienced, when the Forest comes alive at daybreak, the birds begin singing their melodies, and mother natures’ other creatures begin stirring, and a feeling of peace rolls in like a gentle wind.
When the Forest came alive that spectacular day, it was if the animals were rejoicing, as if they knew that the evil creature that had permeated their home for decades was gone and would never contaminate their peace and serenity again….

The first couple of days consists of classes on topics such VICAP, Profiling; behavioral as well as geographical, search strategies and procedures, etc. Dr Maurice Godfrey, who has worked dilligently on the Tara Grinstead case, will be in attendance, as well as LEO and FBI BAU personnel.

Mark Klaus, will be one of the speakers. I will finally get to meet Monica Caison, who I have the utmost respect for, and really admire her dilligence and persistence when it comes to locating missing victims.
The conference will conclude with a candlelight vigil for of the many missing victims of crime. Many of the victims families, friends, and loved ones will be in attendance. I will be rooming with a gentleman from New York, who is a missing victims friend/family member (Brittanee Drexel)…

Have a thousand stories to share from the CUE National Conference, held the last 3 days in Wilmington, NC, but one in particular that simply fractured my heart:

Let me start by saying that Monica Caison, is an amazing lady whose Vision began over three decades ago, which has been honed to the point of excellence! She has the ability to coordinate searches from alligator infested swamp land, to the Colorado Rockies, Ground Zero NY/NY, to Haiti.. When a victim needs help, they are Priority, 24/7-365. This includes the families. She is an absolute firecracker!

As you are aware I was an Atlanta Firefighter. I was stationed near the Atlanta Stadium in a depressed and high crime area of the city.
On November 1, 1978, only blocks from this station lived a 16 year old teenager named Donna Green. Donna was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital, to give birth to a beautiful baby boy named Raymond Lamar Green.

A Couple days after giving birth, she received a visitor; a teenage stranger that said that her sister had given birth to a baby in an adjacent room. She said that her sister was asleep and ask if she minded if she visited her.

Donna, being polite and always open to new friendships, said that she would love to have her company. Her new friend visited her everyday thereafter.
Once Donna and Baby Raymond was released to go home, she received a knock at her door on Prior Street. Much to her surprise, it was her new friend, that had came to check on her and the baby’s welfare.

Donna decided to go upstairs to take a shower and left the baby in the care of her brother. Baby Raymond, got fussy, so her brother was relieved when Donna’s friend picked him up and consoled him.

Her brother dozed off thinking that Raymond, was being well taken care of.
‘Baby Raymond vanished that day, over 31 years ago’…

Donna frantically called APD and reported the abduction. An investigation was conducted and concluded that Baby Raymond was sold on the Black Market.
A couple years ago, after three decades of anguish, Donna contacted APD to request a new cold case investigation. She found that there were no records indicating the abduction. She presented APD with the newspaper article for verification.

Donna was reading a magazine article one lonely night, a few days ago at 1AM, which was about Monica Caison and CUEs National Conference. Donna, at wits end, dialed her number. Donna, expecting a recorder was shocked when Monica answered her phone, listened to her traumatic story, and invited her to the conference, although the registration deadline had passed.

One of the classes at the seminar was taught by renouned 3D & Sketch Artist: Diane Trepkov.
Monica arranged for Donna to meet with Diane, upon arrival. Diane extracted over 4 pages of descriptive information from Donna’s memory as well as other pertinent info and had a sketch completed, which was identical to the suspect, by the following morning. By that afternoon, Diane had a sketch completed of Baby Raymond.
Needless to say Donna Green was overwhelmed that complete strangers would go to these lengths to locate her lost child, by a simple late night phone call…

Why I requested slain hiker’s crime scene photos

Actually, none whatsoever. I never thought about it that way. I don’t know of anybody who did.

I’m the author and reporter who made the open records request regarding the official record of Emerson’s homicide. The crime scene photos were a part of that request.

At the time, I had no idea what state her body was in. I was reporting a true-crime story for Hustler Magazine on Gary Michael Hilton, who killed Emerson and is the suspect in murders in Florida and North Carolina.

For a reporter doing his job, the crime scene photos are essential to the reporting. The idea is not only to understand what happened, but to piece together how it happened.

I use them to double-check if what the killer told police is true; to see if his M.O. fits in with the other crimes he’s charged with; and to see if there are similarities and/or differences compared to unsolved murders.

Hilton, for example, took off Emerson’s clothes because he is a serial killer who understands how forensic evidence can prove guilt. He didn’t want any evidence that could tie him to the crime. He hid everything. That’s what makes him particularly dangerous.

Transcripts of a confession are not enough, especially when the suspect is a self-admitted sociopath such as Hilton.

Hilton’s a liar. How else can I tell what happened without looking at the shots?

Crime scene photos also help reveal the why, or motive, of the crime.

For example, if a victim died from bludgeoning, crime scene pictures might show bruises on the decedent’s arms, indicating resistance. That’s important not only as to the victim’s character, but as to the force the killer used without feeling guilt about what he was doing.

In a capital murder case especially, police want more than a confession to get a conviction that can survive appeal. That’s why the forensic evidence gathered while the killer is giving his confession can trump the defendant’s appeal that the confession was coerced.

Crime scene evidence can also be used to tie murder suspects to other open cases in which his name has appeared as a suspect. This is especially true for Hilton, who will stand trial in September for the brutal murder of Cheryl Dunlap in Florida in early December 2007.

When news of Emerson’s murder reached Florida in January 2008, authorities there knew Georgia had their suspect and they extradited him. Florida is trying Hilton on murder charges with death by lethal injection or electrocution a possible outcome.

In an effort to get a conviction, the state will almost certainly introduce photographs of Dunlap’s body in open court. Florida judges often allow the evidence in criminal trials to be photographed and handled by the public.

If the Florida jury goes into the penalty phase after a conviction, the state can and will bring in evidence of Hilton’s previous crimes to get the jury to sentence him to death. That evidence can include crime scene photos from previous crimes.

After his Florida trial, Hilton will be transported to North Carolina to stand trial for killing Irene and John Bryant. Authorities in Transylvania County, where Irene Bryant was killed, are hopeful that the North Carolina federal attorney who now has jurisdiction in the case will cede it back to the state, which could then try Hilton for murder, once again with the death penalty on the table.

Before that happens, Hilton will continue to be investigated by law officers throughout the South who believe he committed more than these four murders.

When I submitted my request for photos to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, I read the Georgia Open Records Act to see what I could and could not ask for under Georgia law. I didn’t see anything that excluded crime scene photographs.

I’ve written books about homicides in many states, including Florida, Michigan, California, Louisiana, Kansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. Until this case, I have never been denied crime scene photographs by the police and/or state.

As for the disposition of crime scene photos I might have been given, it’s the publisher’s decision what to publish, not mine. Regarding what Hustler may or may not have published, my editor was ready to change my request to simply ask for any crime scene photographs, and would have been satisfied with images of yellow crime-scene tape or tire tracks.

Subsequent legal action made this a moot point before the request could be entered.

Fred Rosen, a writer and historian, is the author of many true crime books including “Deadly Angel” and “Lobster Boy.” His book “The Historical Atlas of American Crime” won Library Journal’s “Best Reference Source of the Year.”

The law did not differentiate between what crime scene photos and other information should not be released on a public request. I think that most families would be opposed to information, including photos, regarding a member of their family being arrested, incarcerated or sadly, ultimately killed.

Are photos of prisoners convicted and dealt the ultimate punishment, the death penalty, available under this same law? There is a good question for someone to investigate while worrying about victims’ death photos. I am almost sure what the answer is.

Relay, the crime scene photos were not specifically requested. They were only made the central issue when Representatives Ralston and Chambers, made an issue of them.
The FOI Request was made for all investigative records which included the Crime Scene Photos.
The Meredith Hope Emerson, Investigative records are available, although they have been edited, to anyone who files a FOI Request, and willing to pay the fee.
I have access to many of the records my self.
IMO, the reason for the spin by the Representastives is due to the UCSO and the GBI botching the investigation by not utilizing the resources available to them. The most powerful of these resources,being the American public. AMW has 1100 episodes. Over 100 of the most wanted fugitives have been captured utilizing this resource.
Since Gary Hilton, was captured on 01/04/08, which was due to a 911 call by a citizen, that saw his description on the news, which was fed to CNN by a friend of Meredith Hope Emersons, there has been 4 serial killers. Three were captured within 24 hours once their description was aired in the media. One was shot and killed by Law Enforcement within 36 hours. The one common denominator was that no more innocent victims lives were taken….

A simply guy that had a neighbor: Meredith Hope Emerson, that fought a Serial Killer with her mind, body, and spirit, for four days, buying time for a rescue, which never came. A prolific serial killer which had no victim profile or human emotions, that was oblivious to Law enforcement for over four decades, due to silence and reliance on antiquated stratagies..
A simple guy that couldn’t spell cereal killer two years ago. A simply that began a search for the remains of an innocent abduction victim on 01/06/2008; Meredith Hope Emerson, and found much more than he bargained for.,A simple guy that began a journey backtracking and researching a petty drifter and thief that was brrying kids clothes, womens clothes, mens clothes, etc. A simple guy that built his retirement dream home in the North GA Mountains which resulted in a nightmare beyond comprehension…

A simple guy seeking the truth…

A simple guy that was hauled in by the Fannin Sounty Sheriffs Department, after enduring a Full Felon Take Down, including a Glock 9mm pointed at his head. a Simple Guy that endured a 4 hour interrogation(debate) because he had information that the Union County Sheriffs Department should have known two years ago(on the Internet) which may have prevented a subsequent abduction of another innocent victim: Kristi Cornwel(pre-abduction plan)l.
A simple guy that was assaulted by three people for asking hard questions and one that is POI #1, IMO, on the Levi Frady-GBI website that has been on the internet since 1997, that came at me with an iron bar, only a few days after GMH was apprehended.

IMO, the reason for the spin by the Representastives is due to the UCSO and the GBI botching the investigation by not utilizing the resources available to them, as well as being conned by John Tabor’s RUSE…
GMH, had 24 hours to think about the RUSE. Why did he trust that Tabor would not notify the GBI of the Huddle House Phone Call? Two AJCs were found in his van when he was arrested on 01/04/08. He was tracking the news.
Where was GMH, goint to get a check cashed?

(Previous comment brought forward)

I’m excited about going to the CUE Missing Person “Expanding the Vision’ Conference this weekend. Many of the people that I have read about and talked to in the past couple of years, as well as families of the missing and murdered victims will be attending.

The first couple of days consists of classes on topics such VICAP, Profiling; behavioral as well as geographical, search strategies and procedures, etc. The Highway Serial Killer Iniative, which has captured over three serial killers to date, is one of the cases being discussed.

Dr Maurice Godfrey, who has worked dilligently on the Tara Grinstead case, will be in attendance, as well as LEO and FBI BAU personnel.
Diane Trepkov: Renoun Canadian Forensics Sketch Artist will be teaching classes: Death,Identification, and Investigation matters.

Mark Klaus: Champion of Child Predator Legislation, will be one of the speakers. I will finally get to meet Monica Caison, who I have the utmost respect for, and really admire her dilligence and persistence when it comes to locating missing victims.
The conference will conclude with a candlelight vigil on the Cape Fear River Front forf the many missing & murdered innocent victims of crime.
Many of the victims families, friends, and loved ones will be in attendance. I will be rooming with a gentleman from New York, who is a missing victims friend/family member (Brittanee Drexel)…

Relay, you said: “Who is this Wolfscratch? Did this weekend retreat he took make him an expert in something? I can’t find a bit of truth in any of his numerous comments. He seems to be one of only a few interested in this story or should I say interested in any excuse to comment on anything BUT this story.”

Wolfscratch is a retired fire captain who lived near where Meredith Emerson was slaughtered. Since that horrible tragedy three years ago he has donated his time, energy and money to tracking Emerson’s killer. He knows more about murderer Gary Michael Hilton than any other civilian.

Since Emerson’s photos are at the heart of this story, I would say Wolf knows a lot about the subject and about the case and knows why the banning of these photos would be a dangerous thing and part of the continued smokescreen on this case.

You can’t find any truth? That’s because you’re not meant to. The GBI, FBI, FDLE, and a host of local law enforcement agencies throughout the country have purposely not said squat about Gary Michael Hilton. Why is that?

I can’t tell you for sure. But I know Hilton killed my friend, nurse Cheryl Dunlap of Crawfordville, Florida. Tortured her just as he did Meredith.

So wolf and I have something in common, the tracking of Hilton and discovery of his victims.

Don’t let any government agency take away your First Amendment right to know the truth about what it does. This is an old reporter talking. I’m not crazy nor is wolf. I blog about this all the time if you’re interested. http://nancyimperiale.wordpress.com

Great Article by Donna Pendergast, on Victims Rights:

http://womenincrimeink.blogspot.com/2008/04/and-justice-for-all.html

And Justice for All:
by Donna Pendergast

Next month Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be observed. Every April since 1981, Crime Victims’ Rights Week has been observed across the nation by victims, survivors, and the criminal justice professionals who assist them. This observance promotes and recognizes victims’ rights and brings the victim-assistance community together to raise public awareness and to renew the commitment to address the needs of victims and their families.

THE CRIME CLOCK

Consider these statistics recently released by the Department of Justice:

One person is assaulted every 7.2 seconds
One person becomes a victim of identity theft every 8.7 seconds
One home is burglarized every 9.1 seconds
One child is reported neglected or abused every 35 seconds
One woman is victimized by an intimate every 1.3 minutes
One man every 6.7 minutes
One person is raped every 2.7 minutes
One person is murdered every 31 minutes
One hate crime is reported to police every 73 minutes
These statistics serve as a stark reminder that none of us is immune from the specter of crime and that every crime has a victim who suffers some harm at the hands of the offender.

In reply to “Don’t let any government agency take away your First Amendment right to know the truth about what it does” this is exactly what the issue is. This reporter, just as you identify yourself as, requested information not withheld by any law to date. Suddenly some government official got word of this (phone call from a clerk?) and demanded that this information be kept private. The government is not in the business of protecting family privacy. Just take a look at the classifieds in your local paper that posts legal notices of divorce, adoption, releasing parental rights, foreclosure and so on. Go to the county court house and see how much information can be pulled up, especially today with computer systems. Pay a fee to some internet business and gain access to all information from social security numbers to criminal history to even medical history given the provider.

If I read you correctly you are saying not to trust the investigation but to abide by the concept that the loved ones shouldn’t have to deal with what is available. I am sure they have already been exposed to this information. This is not the first murder to have a book or article written about it that included graphic photos.

I should ask my question once more. Who is this Wolfscratch that has determined what the truth is?

The idea that a number of Google search results verifies something is ridiculous. It was stated “From a Google Search: Results 1 – 10 of about 3,820,000 for emerson – hustler…”There are about 2,910,000 results for nancy imperiale and 13,600 for Wolfscratch but that does not reveal anything about content or veracity.

This is precisely what the reporter was denied. Access. Not speaking but access to information on file that was not prohibited by any law from being provided.

The family has seen the photos, heard the interviews, know the details. They declined to sit through viewing it in a court room in exchange for a life sentence that provided directions to the body.

The reporter from Hustler has said he requested information to verify what had been reported. I can’t believe you would rather take the word of a criminal rather than have someone investigate the facts especially given what seems to be your innate distrust of criminal procedure.

This information provided by Wolfscratch is only talk. The back up provided is “From a Google Search: Results 1 – 10 of about 3,820,000 for emerson – hustler…” What do these results prove? For example 13,600 for wolfscratch and 2,910,000 for nancy imperiale.

ReLay, thank you for your reply and you makes some good points, however your information may not ne completely accurate.
FBI Profilers from the BAU were flown in upon news of GMH’s arrest.
There is multiple reasons for the plea agreement with Gary Michael Hilton, to take the death penalty off the table. The primary reason was that GA had an antiquated law on the books that prevented the GBI from sharing GMH’s DNA with other Agencies. This information came straight from a Special Agent that worked the case. GMH, went from arrest to sentencing in less than 30 days. Once he was convicted, there was Cold Case Detectives from many GA LE Agencies and many Adjacent States waiting on it. Hence Meredith Emerson’s DNA Law passed swiftly by the GA Legislature in April 2008.
Meredith’s remains would have been located within hours off Shoal Creek Rd. In the Investigation records he was eyewitnessed at the dump sites at 10AM & 12AM on 01/04/08. One of the witnesses that saw him at Shoal Creek Rd.was a DNR Ranger, who just waved at him…

The expense of a DP Trial was another consideration, as well as the time it takes to carry the sentence out. GMH was 61 when arrested, the probability of him dying in prison of natural causes was enormous.

You are implying the only reason Georgia made a plea agreement with Gary Hilton was because of DNA held from old cases that couldn’t be tested or compared to old cases in that state or is it because they expected some new law (much like this Hustler photo situation) that the state foresaw with a change a comin’? No, I don’t get that conclusion. Tell me again why Hilton, once arrested, decided it was in his best interest to plead guilty and lead police to Meredith’s remains. What investigation reports show he was anywhere near where the body was found? You use what Gary Hilton says as proof, which is far from it, and precisely what the reporter from Hustler was trying to verify. Really, did one of the witnesses that saw him at Shoal Creek Rd. happen to be a DNR Ranger, who just waved at him? Is that reported somewhere?

The expense of a DP Trial was another consideration, as well as the time it takes to carry the sentence out. GMH was 61 when arrested, the probability of him dying in prison of natural causes was enormous.

Do you approve of the expense Florida is now facing in trying Gary Hilton in the death of Cheryl Dunlap? It is no less expensive now than then, and he still gets to read, watch TV and sleep soundly in a heated environment.

How would you feel if say, I, as a concerned citizen looking out for voiceless victims that haven’t been indentified, requested all the personal information about you that was available. Would that be okay?

You have yet to explain why the state of Georgia can make up the rules as they go along. This is fine, this isn’t. I would think those that are so sure the police and judges are in some way distorting justing would want to see and hear every bit of hard evidence. How do you even know the condition of Meredith Emerson’s body? It’s all according to Hilton.

ReLay, I have talked to 1,000s of people in this area 30534, 30148, spent 18 to 20 hours a day for over two years, researching and tracking Gary Hilton’s movements as well as searching his staging areas, campsites, and ritual grounds, GBI investigation records, as well as talking to Park Officials GBI Agents, DNR Rangers, as well as experts in many other fields.
I have hunted, hiked, and fished this area for over four decades.
The Meredith Emerson case was closed in the Spring of 2008 and reopened the very next day, although the headline size and the placement in the AJC, when the case was reopened by a higher authority, was obvious as to the intent.
You may refer to it as BS, but the eyewitnesses were very credible. One example of this is the eyewitness that saw GMH at the Atlanta Tract; Dawson Forest WMA on 10/22/1997, a rocks throw from where Meredith’s remains were located, was retired CIA. He was reinterviewed by a task force that is reinvestigating Levi Frady’s case.
Much of the info that I reveal is verified by the GBI Records as well as other eyewitnesses that I have located or they have sought me out to provide information.
ReLay, my life is an open book.
Are you familar with the location of GMH Campsite/Staging area and cache discovered at Coopers Creek WMA, Fannin County, GA, almost two years after GMH’s arrest? Are you aware of the items that were found in the cache. Do you know the price I paid for seeking out this information?

Relay, you can search far and wide, and you will not find anyone that empathizes more with Meredith Hope Emerson or her Families Tragedy.than I.
I have went above and beyond the call of duty to keep her memory alive. I believe that Meredith Hope Emerson, is a true hero and sacrificed her life to save other victims. I could not imagine the grief and pain that her Family, Friends, and loved ones have endured…

ReLay, be honest and ask yourself if you can name one victim of Serial Killers; Gary Ridgeway: Green River, or Ted Bundy; FL. Ted Bundy’s 25th Anniversary of his execution was last year. He was on every media outlet for days. His victims didn’t get an honorable mention. This needs to change..
If yo go to Meredith Hope Emersons Guest Book; Legaacy, you will find inspirational comments from all over the world. Many only a couple of days ago. If you go back over the two years since her abduction, you will prolly over 40 by me…
In September 2009, I talked with the Investigator in Union County that was embedded in a cabin with the Emerson family during the investigation. He nor his Lt.knew any specifics about the Gary Michael Hilton Investigation. They were shocked to learn of the Deadly Run Movie Produced by GMHs Attorney Samuel Rael. I was just as shocked that they didn’t know. Without knowledge, history will repeat itself..

As for the Hustler – Emerson issue. I feel that is a nonissue. A political maneuver by the two Representatives, which are using this tragedy to create outrage in the public for political gain and cause interference for the true purpose for the FOI Request, which is to seek the truth..
If Hustler or Fred Rosen appeals the decision, once it leaves GA, for a multitude of reasons, the GA Judge will be overruled…His decision was reached well befor the paperwork reached his desk..

Judges do what they do in GA, because many legislate from the bench, and the truth of the Gary Michael Hilton & Associates reign of Terror, would be an indictment of the the Justice System, specifically the Dekalb County Justice System, IMO. It’s that simple..

I am refering to the 1982 Arson with occupants, where GMH, wasn’t prosecuted. Something fuzzy about that. Wouldn’t you think?

And on the other hand:
In GA, a Prosecutor gets to make two closing statements; first and last. This procedure was one of the goals of Governor Purdue’s Sonny Do List. Many innocent defendants have been found guilty due to this unfair advantage, IMO. Read a paragraph and see which parts you remember..

As for believing GMH’s statements. When determining whether he is telling the truth, deflecting, or being downright dishonest. I consider many factors, deductive reasoning, process of elimination, common sense, knowledge of this geographical area and his safe haven, fair tracking skills, patterns of GMHs past behavior, statements of jailers, baliffs, combined with GMH’s multiple interviews, timelines,as well as his thought process which was from unconventional methods such as dowsing, and placing my head into his…

ReLay, I could give you many, many more examples. Much of the info that I have discovered and documented has not been revealed at this time..

Wolfscratch

A few examples: When GMH, was asked if he had raped Meredith, at first he answered no. When warned that forensics would indicate whether she had been, GMH, answered Yes. He was then asked, how many times. He responded, “once.” He knew that the number of times would be impossible to determine.

4 car ramps from his van inventory: for navigating burms, fording creeks, as well as maintaining his vehicle in the forest. This was concluded from his many license queries in restricted areas of the forest as well as posted private land, and the residue such as antifreeze bottles, oil cans, used oil filters, auto carpet, etc. in areas where GMHs presence was verified.

In the shed next to the Farm House. A section of rope with taped ends was used to tie Meredith to a large wooden reel. She frayed the long fiber manilla hemp rope, by moving her shoulders back and forth, until the rope broke. As a result of the abrasion, fibers of the rope were in the area near the reels base. The badly stained studs, holding the shed up, had been broken in the ensueing fight. GMH, had used Sears Speakers to brace the broken studs.to prevent the sheds collapse.
I have decades of experience inspecting the manilla hemp rope(old well rope)for signs of abrasion and loss of working strength during my career in the Fire Service.

There was no shovel indicated in the cache or the van inventory. There is one leaning on a tree near where I eyewitnessed him in the woods.

What is “this area 30534,30148″ you searched for upwards of 20 hours a day? That spells obsession to me. In addition, there has been no new evidence presented representing the results of your efforts, am I correct? Who is this eyewitness you claim plays a part? If he is known then where is his statement from 2 years ago? Isn’t that parcel a very heavily traveled route? The Meredith Emerson case was and remains closed since her killer was convicted of murder. Why do you think it remains open?

“Much of the info that I reveal is verified by the GBI Records as well as other eyewitnesses that I have located or they have sought me out to provide information.”

How have you maintained this information and for the record, what would anything someone told you be worth anything? Who are you to bring information to?

“4 car ramps from his van inventory: for navigating burms, fording creeks, as well as maintaining his vehicle in the forest.

February 17th, 2008 at 2:31 am Meredith Hope Emerson, loving, caring, an important part of nature, She and her dog Ella, loved the mountains and outdoors.
Where the rhodendrum grow , the hemlock stand tall, and the Eagle soars,
Just sitting marvelling at the appalacians; so majestic with splendor,
She and Ella, playing, hiking, and bonding with love,
The forest, inhabitants; birds, and deer meander,
The meadows in Bucktown, will take your breath, and wild azaleas bloom,
The sun rising high, the Forest comes alive, the Honey Bees and Butterflys.
Black Bears just lumbering along, the Birds singing Mother Nature’s favorite song.
Hikers come from all over to hike the AT, some hiking it short, some hiking it long,
She and Ella thought of this as a paradise, for whatever it’s worth,
When they were One, with the Earth, my only Request is, and I pray,
That they meet again on that endless Rainbow Bridge, Entering Heaven , Someday.
In nature she’ll be missed, by family, friends, and loved ones.
As our Somber Nation Prays, She was My Neighbor for Just Four Days……

I think your right Nancy Imperiale. ReLay, is not only a troll, but a Trolling Attorney.

From the Cheryl Dunlap Forum Tally Democrat News:Guess, Hopeful Poster is pretty good at what she does. Pickin folks’s brain.

Interpretation: Don’t do your taxes if you arent a CPA. Guess that works in the legal profession too: ‘A fool for a client.’
I believe ReLay, is an Attorney, ‘And’, has a ‘Fool’ for a client. LOL

In Response to Re: Cheryl’s Forum : GAPeach, John Tabor and Associates, may think that he has won in the Impotent Disfunctional Judicial System of Dekalb County, GA, due to Home Cooking and the ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch your back’, form of Jurisprudence, but there has been a unanimous verdict by the many jurors in the ‘Court of Public Opinion’: “Guilty as Charged”. The court that holds dear to their hearts the inalienable rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, which was denied Meredith Hope Emerson, by John Tabors’ obvious refusal to dial 911 at 5PM on 01/03/08, and the Dekalb Judicial System for refusing to prosecute Gary Michael(Mack) Hilton for the 1982 Arson with occupants. Until I read your comment, I was indescisive as to who to nominate for ‘Hustler Magazines’, ‘ArseHole of the Month’…

Relay, I have to take issue with your use of the word “retreat” when referring to the get together Wolf referred to. I have been to a “retreat” in the past and it doesn’t even compare to the schedule of events Wolf attended. You misuse the word horribly. I attended a “guilting retreat” where women (and a couple of men) attended to perhaps learn some new skills, but the main purpose of the “retreat” was to give the attendees something to look forward to, to share common interests, and have fun doing so. What Wolf attended was not an event where the participants could “have fun”. It was more of a basic primer or continuing education program regarding missing persons. It was not intended to be an event where participants “had fun”. The participants were there for many reasons, but all were concerned with learning more about the process of locating missing persons. If I had the time, I would attend. Would you? I do not know Wolf personally, but I do know that he chose as his career a field that helped others at the risk of his own life. I would think that type of person who cares so much about protecting others would attend this type of seminar and certainly not consider it a “retreat”.

Perhaps you will reconsider your previous statement in light of what I have said and post a more positive statement.

Would you rather I call it a “weekend conference from which no certificate was received?” I can’t see the idea that you are comparing this to a “guilting retreeat”. Is this a primer or continuing ed class? No, it’s a seminar. I doubt credit was available to any attendees.

I chose to categorize it as a retreat. That was how I understood it. Hotel room, meals, meetings. No massages or other spa treatments but it was held in a coastal location. It seems that the question of why t his person, wolfscratch, made himself a part of this weekend seminar. What part does he play in missing persons or locating missing persons? Is he an active member of a search team or part of some level of law enforcement that actively engages in missing person searches?

I trust that my opinion and questions are just as important as the many ones previously posted.

ReLay, you are just as important and your opinion honored.
The National Conference for the Missing & Murdered Victims had many objectives: Educating and Informing the Families & Friends of the Missing and Murdered, Law Enforcement, Search Teams, Advocates, etc. The attendees were a wide variety of people and the events on the agernda included instruction on subjects such as ‘Fundamentals of Advocacy, Child Safety & Prevention techniques and tools, Legislation such as Bill’s Law HR 3695, Death, Identification, Investigation Matters, Networking, and testimonies of the Families of the Missing & Murdered.

The classes were taught by Victims Advocates such as Marc Klaus, FBI supervisor of VICAP, as well as Experts from Law Enforcement Agency and Search Organizations which were the ‘Best of the Best’ in their field of service.
Attending the National Round Table Conference was a tremendous experience for me and had my full attention from arrival to departure. Although there were lighter moments, I assure you, no matter what traumatic experiences you have endured in your lifetime, you would not have left the Conference without sheding a tear on more than one occasion…
ReLay, I am a Retired Atlanta FD Fire Captain that was one of the original Officers assigned to the Haz Mat Squad #5. We responded on all fires two story and above in the City of Atlanta, as well as all other hazardous Emergency incidents, etc. I am familiar and experienced in search procedures, both primary and secondary. Guess, the only difference is that we searched for victims, most times, void of our senses, except the sense of feel, in toxic & explosive environments where the temperature, inches above our heads exceeded 1200 degrees.

RE: It seems that the question of why t his person, wolfscratch, made himself a part of this weekend seminar. What part does he play in missing persons or locating missing persons? Is he an active member of a search team or part of some level of law enforcement that actively engages in missing person searches?

ReLay, It is my goal to achieve certification to join the CUE Organization in future searches for the Missing and Murdered. I have been receiving emails for the announcement of search locations and dates for months now. I am sure the Search Procedures Certification will be very informative, but is a formality:

Qualifications:
Two years Army Infantry: Vietnam Era.
Private Pilot
Certified Scuba Diver
Smoke Diver
1st Responder
Certified Rope Rapel Instructor
Training Instructor Atlanta Fire Training Acasdemy
Over 4 decades Woodsman, Hunting, Hiking, etc.
Grave Dowser
Certified Hazard Materials: National Fire Academy

And yes Relay, many of the classes held at the National Conference for the Missing Awarded Certificates, but the rewards were the many concerned and spiritual people that I met. Many living a new normal.
The most important that I learned from the experience was to never use the word ‘Closure’ around a Family member of a Missing or Murdered Victim…

Folks, why is the number of links on this search significant?

It has been over two years since Gary Michae(Mack) Hilton, was sentenced to life in prison for the brutal Murder of Meredith Hope Emerson.

When GMH was extradicted to Leon County FL, (the ‘Sunshine’ State)to face a Death Penalty Trial for another abduction and brutal murder of an innocent Victim: Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, all information was silenced by Judge Terry Lewis; the Judge presiding over the trial.
The sealing of all evidence was requested by not only by GMHs Defense Attorney: Inez Suber, but also by the Prosecutor: Willie Meggs. Judge Lewis, although allowing minimal investigation records released, approved the redaction of any meaningful information by the Prosecution and Defense.
The Tallahassee Democrat Newspaper hired an Attorney who made an unsuccessful attempt to access normally released Trial Discovery Evidence..The truth is an indictment of the complicity and impotency of the Justice System, IMO. Silence was Gary Hilton’s most lethal weapon.

I submit that Gary Michael Hilton: Prolific Serial Killer, had Associates (4 friends: 3 were Attorneys: Officers of the Court), and Sidekicks over the years, and preyed on our Families, Friends, and Loved Ones for decades (47 years, according to him) oblivious to Law Enforcement, waltzing in and out of the Justice System, unscaved, since he was 14 years old.. GMH, was 61 years old when captured.

According to my info, the GBI was aware that an abnormal number of women were vanishing in GA, since 1980, simply did who was responsible for their disappearances. GMH, has been tracked from Hialeah, FL to northern PA.
Since the establishment of the FBIs VICAP System in the mid 80s this information would have been verified.
Due to Hiltons copycatting of other Serial Killers past, creating a lack of a victim profile due to the morphing of his MO & Signature, sadistic and psychopathi personality and behavior, knowlege of forensics.& police procedures, investigative techniques(Married to a Stone Mountain Police Officer)communication weaknesses, geographical patterns, safe haven being the Forest and abandoned structures, creativity, intelligence, etc., allowed him the designation Stealth Predator.

GMH, gained confidence with every innocent victim he abducted to the point of taunting Police. This is evident by the use of Cheryl Dunlap’s ATM card used three consecutive days after her abduction on December 1, 2007. GMH, wore a mask which is documented by the banks security cameras.
The mask that GMH, wore while using her ATM card is synonomous with burial masks worn during the Neolithic Period(Stone Age).
Gary Michael Hilton, is very knowledgeable about Ancient History, specifically ancient religious history. This was concluded due to several factors learned backtracking and researching him. He gave Meredith Hope Emerson, a book to read before her demise; ‘Cannibals to Kings’..
Gary Michael Hilton was an Emulator. Sometimes he would be a soldier on a perpetual manuever, a kayaker or canoer, visually impared person, and at other times a Travelling Preacher.

FROM THE AJC:

Meredith Emerson’s Last Days

According to Keenan, Hilton gave the following account of Emerson’s last days:

Hilton said he targeted Emerson because she was a woman. They hiked together on Jan. 1 on the mountain trail, but Hilton, 61, could not keep up with Emerson. He waited for her to head back down the trail before he attacked her with a military-style knife.

Hilton demanded that Emerson give him her ATM card, but she immediately fought back, grabbing the knife blade and a baton Hilton had. “She wouldn’t stop,” Hilton told investigators. “She wouldn’t stop fighting. And yelling at the same time. So I needed to both control her and silence her.”

Hilton punched her hard. Blackening both of her eyes and probably breaking her nose, but Emerson continued to fight back. He said he calmed her down by telling her that all he wanted was her credit card and PIN number.

He finally managed to get her back down the trail and he put her and her dog Ella into his van. For the next three days, Emerson bought herself time over the next three days by giving Hilton the wrong PIN numbers.

Although the above snipet from an AJC article was good outline or overview of the courageous fight Meredith Hope Emerson, waged over the four days that she was held captive by Gary Michael Hilton. it leaves out some verty significant points.
When the original act or demand for her ATM Cards occured, she not only defended herself utilizing martial arts skills, but disarmed GMH of the hunting knife and and then, his expandable baton,
Meredith feigned defeat, and would then continue aggressively fighting him while attempting to alert others by yelling. Due to GMH’s prior recon of the adjacent closed and hidden escape trail, frigid weather conditions, visibility due to the elevation, noise abatement due to the mountainous terrain time of day of the assault, and the fact that it was New Years Day, none of the other hikers heard her frantic screams for help that tragic day…
Had Meredith Hope Emerson, given up at that time. she would have still been considered a hero in my book. Meredith, was a kindred spirit and a fighter. She stil is…
Once GMH broke her nose and blacked her eyes, and she continued to fight, he realized that she was a formidable opponent and was forced to alter his tactics. He convinced her that he only wanted her cards, and once she complied that he would set her free. She allowed him to bind her hands behind her back. According to GMH, he had no intentions of letting her go, or letting her live…
Once under his complete control, he tied a noose around her neck with a nylon rope and threatened that he had a firearm which he would use on her and any other good samaritan who attempted to intervene.
A few weeks after that tragic day, I drove up to Blood Mountain and located a makeshift memorial where the abduction took place. It was constructed of rocks in the shape of a heart, adorned with assorted live flowers and hiking sticks that were retired in her memory, and placed there by her family, friends, and other caring hikers. As you can imagine, it was a very moving experience…
Although the other hikers didn’t here Meredith’s screams for help, they were signs of danger being felt by many of them. One hiker had written down GMHs vehicle description, and another actually saw him hiding behind a tree while his & Meredith’s personal items were being gathered up by another concerned hiker.
I tracked their movements on the escape trail through the Forest, locating three staging areas where GMH, hid while waiting for dark to set in. The final spot where she was subdued was a large oak tree adjacent to the trailhead parking lot. A utility flag was noticed at heis tree that read; UCSO: Union County Sheriffs Dept…
Meredith, balked when ordered to climb into GMH’s van, leaning on lessons learned from her martial arts self defense training. She said, “they told us to not get in the vehicle!” GMH said, “Get in the van bitch!”

there is something very unique and unusual about GMH & Associates reign of terror that may cause more than the general population can bear.
It is normal for the Defense Attorney to request silence of the Discovery Evidence, yet almost unheard of for the Prosecution to request it, due to its graphic nature or otherwise.

If you consider that GMH had only 4 friends and three being Attorneys. The political strategy used in the Hustler/Rosen-Emerson Debacle, of spoonfeeding the AJC the missleading story that Rosen/Hustler filed the FOI request specifically for the crime scene photos and:

State Representative David Ralston

Education:
JD, University of Georgia School of Law, 1980
BA, North Georgia College and State University, 1976.

Professional Experience:

Organizations:
Leadership Georgia 1996
Board of Governors, State Bar of Georgia, 1988-1993

‘Past President, Appalachian Circuit Bar Association’ (Grand Jury Indictment Rate 90%+)

Jill Chambers, the other Dekalb County, State Representative that assisted Rep Ralston, in the shameful attempt(Ruse) of using an innocent victim and her family for causing an uproar in the nation, and cause deflection of the truth in the missinvestigation and lack prosecutioninf the 1982 Arson with occupants in Dekalb County, which would have prevented numerous victims from falling prey to GMH & associates, and for their political gain, IMO,

Now where were those DNR & GBI Hellicopters during the 4 day search for Meredith Hope Emerson between 01/02-04/2008?

The simple fact that the 2nd van of GMHs which had been abandoned ion Tray Mt,(No GA) years ago, was sent to FDLE for forensics testing, which couldn’t have anything to do with the Cheryl Dunlap abduction & Murder, should tell you something.

Roger Depue “Between Good and Evil” He is a retired FBI Criminal Behavioral Profiler with the BAU.

Snipit from R. Depue:
When I was a young man, a friend taught me the ancient art of dowsing, and after a time, I became something of a practitioner myself, finding water underground as a kind of parlor trick for friends. It might seem odd that a man so rooted in grim reality would take an interest in something so ethereal. In fact, I’m fascinated by the unseen forces at play in the lives of human beings.

My job has been to try to stop human predators before they kill again, and after studying them so closely over so many years, to me their traits seem clearly recognizable.
Evil is more than a vague notion. It is an entity, and it is manifest on the earth. It has reflexes and intuition, senses vulnerability, and changes its form to adapt to its surroundings. Those who do not believe the Devil walks this earth have not seen the things that I have seen.

Evil is not a discrete entity that springs forth fully formed. It is born in the mind, takes root there as fantasy, and prospers when normal human restraint can no longer contain it. I have seen it devour the personalities of men like Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Ted Bundy, turning them into blank-faced sociopaths who clearly know right from wrong, but choose, time and again, to follow their own base urges, with complete disregard for the terrible human suffering they cause.
I believe that every act of homicide causes a slight unbalancing in the world, and that it diminishes life’s universal equation. In the interest of justice, it is imperative that someone try to right that imbalance. But the task of fighting evil can take a terrible toll on the people who are charged with it. It can cost them their families, their equilibrium, their capacity for joy.

Hear me Roar: Meredith Emerson- the politics of sexual assault
Mar 27, 2008 … The crime was not about sexual gratification but about demeaning and injuring a woman … Too many women suffer fates like Meredith Emerson, …

Meredith Emerson- the politics of sexual assault
A few days ago I wrote a post about the death of Meredith Emerson and women’s safety.

More stories are breaking on the confession of Gary Hilton, the man who abducted and killed Emerson.

I stated previously that I did not know if Emerson had been sexually assaulted. Now reports say that yes, Hilton raped Meredith Emerson after she continued to give him the wrong pin number for her ATM card. He told police he raped her “because he was angry with her.”

Wow, that line jumped out at me! Contrary to popular myth, men don’t see beautiful women and become crazed with lust and attack them. More often, it’s similar to what Hilton describes. They use rape as a tool to terrorize and harm.

11Alive’s Jaye Watson takes a closer look at how the murder of Meredith Emerson has affected thousands around Metro Atlanta in a deeply personal way in this blog entry.

I had been on the phone all day, talking to people about it. Close friends and not so close friends were calling me, asking for some inside information on the murder of Meredith Emerson.

“What happened over those three days?” “What did he do to her?”

I didn’t have the answers myself, but call after call we played out one horrible scenario after another, hoping we were wrong, fearing we were right.

Today, I pitched the story about why we care so much about Meredith Emerson when people die everyday in Atlanta, when we report on various murders every week. There was unanimous agreement that we should do the story, because many of us in the newsroom felt very affected by the story ourselves. We interviewed Emory University Psychiatrist Dr. Boadie Dunlop. We asked him why this story? “What this attack speaks to is we’re not safe anywhere.”

Dr. Dunlop talked about the disconnectedness in society, how we expect bad things to happen in the city, but not in the mountains.

“We’re more and more closed in our lives and there’s no refuge anymore,” he said.

Whether you like to hike or not, Dunlop says people associate a national forest as a place of pristine beauty and peace. Now the image of the North Georgia Mountains serves as a reminder that a terrible thing can happen anywhere to anyone. Dunlop also says people identify with and have empathy for Emerson who was put in a powerless helpless situation through no fault of her own.

“When traumatic things happen people desire information as if the information can give them control over the event in some way, to make sense of it, to understand it,” he said.

But the Emerson case proves that sometimes there is no answer, just a horrible act.

While many people we talked to on the streets told us they’re signing up for self defense classes, thinking of buying guns or tasers, Dunlop says it’s important to keep this heinous act in perspective.

“We can never eliminate risk in our lives. To stop walking in the woods out of fear, but to keep driving on the freeways, logically doesn’t make sense…It was just so unlucky that this happened to her. The chance this will happen again is extrememly small,” one person said.

Dunlop reminds us life is not without risk.

“We try to protect ourselves and yet this still happened. And that’s where the powerlessness is. We say, ‘it happened to her and it could happen to us’,” said Dunlop.

Dunlop says it’s understandable, in the short term to emotionally process all the new information in the case. But over time, the emotional power and impact of the story will, and should, diminish.

“This is a rare event so it sticks with us,” he said.

Remember Meredith Emerson

by Kathryn Casey

Meredith Emerson is my hero. Even in death, she symbolizes the strength of victims caught in horrific circumstances who employ every means possible to fight back.

Emerson, as you may know, was brutally murdered by a piece of human scum named Gary Michael Hilton. There’s no doubt that she became a victim, as many do, simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. In this case, Emerson’s and Hilton’s paths crossed while she was hiking with her dog in the north Georgia mountains on New Year’s Day. The reason he gave for choosing her as his next victim: “because she was a woman.”

(Makes you want to throw up, doesn’t it?)

At first, Hilton, 61, pretended to befriend Emerson, 24. They talked and walked together. He couldn’t keep up, and she split off on her own. He waited in ambush, threatening her with a knife. The reason I’m so proud of Emerson, a graduate of the University of Georgia, is that she immediately fought back. Hilton told police that Emerson grabbed at his knife and baton. “She wouldn’t stop,” Hilton said. “She wouldn’t stop fighting and yelling at the same time. So I needed both to control her and silence her.”

How did he control her? He pummeled her with his fist so hard that he blackened both her eyes, broke her nose, and his hand. But Emerson still didn’t give up. For four days, he kept her captive, telling her he only wanted her money. She bought time by playing a cat and mouse game, continually giving him the wrong PIN number for her ATM card. “She was doing everything she could to stay alive, Georgia Bureau of Investigation Director Vernon Keenan, has said. “It’s not something you can prepare for.”

Stealth Predator Gary Michael Hilton: Evil, Demonic, Cannibal, Ritual, Serial Killer,
had no victim profile, only a preference. Most of his rage was directed at females.

Once the Truth Prevails, he will be categorized as the Hannibal Lecture of the 20th & 21st Century with a victim tally that goes back decades; 47 years acording to him…

GMH’s Trail of Terror, was driven by Pornography, Drugs, and Bondage/Rituals

* Combined and perfected the Traits of many Serial killers, Organized at times, disorganized at others.: He didn’t want his Primary Den, or Burial and Ritual Grounds identified, and continously attempted to confuse Law Enforcement and VICAP off, by using different MOs, and Diversions, such as Jurisdicitional Boundaries, creating squabbles among them and taking advantage of the lack of communicationbetween Agencies.

*GMH, had been arrested for Arson, and used this method and others, to clean crime scenes and eliminate forensic evidence. GMH, not only used this method to clean crime scenes but used arson as on of his many weapons in his arsenal of death. GMH, torched his fiance’s home in 1982, with her and her brother and sister, inside.

GMH, said, “If I can’t have her, then nobody can!”

*GMH, had a distinct pattern of travel, which can be traced using the Ancient Majestic Appalacian Mountain Range, as a guide, as well as Ancient Geographical Areas of FL. His victims were spaced out in one year intervals, and extended fron NY, to FL.

* GMH, utilized hunting schedules, posted lands(hunting clubs) State and Federal Parks & Forests & was very knowlegeable of Police Procedures, and Forensic Cleansing. Strategies & Procedures of tracking Serial Killers(VICAP). His victims were stranger on stranger, which created statistical roadblocks for LE.

* Utilized Religion, Ancient Civilizations, & Native American history, and rituals. GMh collected Ancient Artifacts and marked one grave which contained many victims, with an artifact that characterized a demonic mask. GMH, also marked his burial grounds with glass canning jars, for relocating them in case of an extended absence.

* GMH, was very creative and used several ploys to lure and then capture his prey. His dog Dandy, was well trained and was utilized in many of his ploys.

On one occasion GMH,and two Associates, on a rapidly flowing river, created a scenario of a man and a dog flipping a canoe. His targeted victim was sunbathing on a sandbar with her dog. This occured in Madison Co., FL. The victims instincts activated an alarm and she would live to tell her story.

He would pull up behind the vehicle of potential victims, blink the lights, and once they pulled over, tell them that sparks were coming from their undercariage, then offer them a ride.

-One lady said that he would pretend to be blind and used the expandable baton to look like a blind person’s cane, & Dandy as his seeing eye dog. She almost was tricked into believing him, but later saw him driving his van.

These are only a few of the ruses used by GMH to capture his prey.

He carried himself as Traveling Preacher, Soldier on a perpetual mission, and was emulating Joshua; Of the Old Testament Bible: ‘The Soldier’s Soldier’, Joshua, took over the helm when Moses died on Mt. Pisgah. In his final days before capture. GMH, has over 15 identical traits of ‘Joshua.’ This observation was made due to several factors, one being the burial mask worn while accessing Cheryl Dunlap’s ATM card 3 days consecutively from the same FL Bank, beginning on the day after her abduction. The Burial Mask was worn during rituals in the Neolithic Period(Stone age): Joshua’s Era. This information was obtained through unconventional means while attempting to establish a protective shield of his evil presence…

* GMH, is self diagnosed with MS, & was taking large dosages of riddilin prescribed liberally by his Physician.

GMH, is demonic.. GMH, pulled his own teeth except for a couple, said it made him look more evil. You can sense or feel his evil in his Forest staging areas, and smell the residue of his pungent odor in enclosed areas..

He told his ex bosse’s wife, “when I come off my meds, ‘The Demons’ , come out in me!”…..

* GMH, was Military Trained; Airborne Special Forces, Very Intelligent(150+IQ) Cagey, Creative, Calculating, Opportunist, Psycopath with no Human Emotions. He was obsessed with sadistic sexual fantasies and power he possesed over his victims.

Gary Hilton was born in Atlanta, GA, but obviously moved to South Florida later.

http://prairiechicken.blogspot.com/2…-timeline.html

He dropped out of school in either his junior or senior year in high school to join the army. The last time I saw him in person was either 1963 or 1964 when he stopped by the high school I attended and told me he was joining the army. When I knew him he lived in Hialeah with his mother and step father. Hialeah is a large suburban city within Metropolitan Miami area. The incident referred to at age 14 was a domestic disturbance between him,his mother and step father. His step father was shot during the disturbance. His step father lived, it was a juvenile court issue, no charges were filed to my knowledge.

He called me in 1982 when I was living in another state. He had gotten my phone number from a family member in Miami by telling them he was someone else, representing a fictitious company and needed to get in touch with me. We spoke briefly and I hung up on him because he seemed to be talking very strangely. I had no contact with him after that.

I have been contacted by the Public Defenders office in Tallahassee, therefore I do not intend to say anything in detail here that could possibly affect any potential testimony I might have to give at a later date.

Scarrgot, welcome to the forum and thank you very much for sharing this experience on this forum.

Henry Lee Lucas (August 23, 1936[1] – March 13, 2001[2]) was an American criminal, convicted of murder and once listed as America’s most Prolific Serial Killer; he later recanted his confessions, and flatly stated “I am not a serial killer” in a letter to researcher Patrick Poff.[3]

Henry Lucas: Prolific Serial Killer, confessed to involvement in about 300 murders, with an average of about one murder per week between his release from prison in mid-1975 to his arrest in mid-1983.

Snipets from:
Wikipedia (Links)
Henry_Lee_Lucas: Serial Killer

Lucas’s sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1998 by then-Governor George W. Bush, it was the only commutation in Governor George W. Bush’s entire history as Governor of Texas. Lucas died in prison of natural causes. Because Lucas’s death removed the possibility of resolution in many instances, a number of questions remain unresolved.

Henry Lucas had a sidekick:

Otis Toole: Serial Killer and possible abductor and murderer of Adam Walsh.
Although the Adam Walsh was closed, and Ottis Toole, deemed his killer, new info has been in the news lately pointing to Jeffrey Dalmer as his killer…

Ottis Toole, made a Death Bed Confession to his neice, while encarcerated sentenced to Death.
Toole, was a confessed ‘Satan Worshiper’. Doubt a death bed confession from a Satan Worshiper would be very reliable. But what do I know?
Otis Toole died in prison of Liver failure…

20.I am confident that the Feds/Task Force are negotiating with Gary Michael Hilton, to reveal the identity, number, and location of the remains of his many, many Innocent Victims.

I come to this conclusion due to the Silence by the Justice System, the media(local & National), the sealing of the evidence, the many unexplained hearings being delayed, the fact that he is presently serving a Life Sentence in GA, for the tragic abduction, rape, torture, mutilation, decapitation, and murder of Meredith Hope Emerson, his age, life expectancy, health, and the magnitude and duration of his ‘trail of terror’….Victim Total…both deceased and wrongly suspected, indicted, convicted, and incarcerated for GMH’s evil deeds..

21.Was the shooting and killing of GMH’s father by his Mother at age 5 years old or his shooting of his stepfather during the domestc dispute, at the age of 14 years old, in Hialeah, Fl, the trigger or beginning of GMH’s Trail of Terror, as he claims? Guess the first time is always the hardest and once that threshold is broken, if pleasure is realized from the experience. Escalation would seem imminent. Did he enjoy inflicting pain and violence, destroying, or controlling the destiny of others?

GMH, went on to receive Military Special Forces(airborne) training, and discipline. He learned strategies and procedures from his Law Enforcement trained spouse(Stone Mountsin Police) later, reading/researching, honing his skills while increasing his victim total, until his evil deeds became second nature. As he escalated, perfecting his stalking or hunting skills, discipline, strategies and techniques, the nature of his inflicted violence became up close and personal.
Seems that he morphed into a Stealth Predator, confusing VICAP and the expert profillers of the FBI BAU2, as well as other lesser experienced and equipped Local and State Law Enforcement Agencies for decades, 47 years according to him.
GMH’s license was queried over 80 times in the 10 years before his arrest. This totak is only for one decade and only for GA. His hunting range covered the Eastern US and beyond…
The Dawson County Proscecutor that tried him for the Murder of Meredith Hope Emerson deemed Gary Michael Hilton, “The Nowhere man, The Everywhere Man.”

22.Below is a reply by me on another forum, from May 29th, 2009. Since that date, there have been many more hearings and delays. A Campsite/Staging area was located in Fannin Co., GA at the Coopers Creek WMA, in September 2009.. A truck load of incriminating evidence that should tie GMH, to more unknown innocent victims, was recovered from a Cache of Hiltons, from this site.

Another hearing was set for today at 9AM, to set a trial date, the defense requested that it be posponed due to new evidence. The new hearing is set for August 2009.
*********

When asked how the other prisoners & guards treated him, GMH said:

“No one messes with me here. They treat me real good.”

“I’ve got my own T.V. ‘I READ’. I’ve got my meals cooked, served…the dishes are washed. My laundry is done….Hey, I love it!”

“I’m gonna f—— raise hell, total hell.
I’m not gonna be happy unless it takes three to four years to go to trial. Unless we have a 1,000 person jury pool, and unless we have at least two changes of venue. And that’s just to begin with (laughs).”

In February 2008, GMH Plead Guilty for the abduction, rape, mutilation, torture, and Murder of Meredith Hope Emerson, and received a Life sentence partly due to his age. His life expectancy is 77 years old. Except for the unlikely event of an escape he will never experience freedom again.

It has been almost 2 years since the above conviction. A preliminary date to select jurors, has been set for July 12, 2010 by Judge Terry Lewis(Hanging Chad Judge)in the Cheryl Dunlap Murder trial.
. GMH is 62 years old. How many years does it take to carry out a DP sentence once ordered in Florida(18 to 20 years)? GMH’s life expectancy is less than the time it takes to carry out the DP sentence.
The numb3rs simply don’t add up, IMO.
Like many Prolific Serial Killers before him, GMH will die in prison of natural causes, or in his case unnatural causes..

“Naked Crime Scene Photos, or Naked Truth”

I have been backtracking Gary Michael Hilton: Prolific Serial Killer, since 01/06/08, which began as a search for Meredith Hope Emersons remains, in an area called Wolfscratch Wilderness(30534/30148)
What I have discovered will break your heart!

Meredith Hope Emerson courageously fought GMH, mind, body, and spirit, buying time for a rescue by law enforcement. The rescue never came.
Meredith, heroically sacrificed herself so that other Innocent Victims may live..
Gary Michael Hilton, is the Hannibal Lecter of the 20th & 21st Centuries.

Folks, I have only revealed a smidget of the information obtained. Since the early days of the journey, it was obvious that someone, someone in high a high posdition of authority wanted this tragic story to simply go away.
My emails vanished, I was tailed by Law Enforcement, ignored when I contacted LE, clothing and other evidence left on the ground, hauled in and interrogated, on 3 occasions. The last due to investigating GMHs Campsite/staging area Contents, discovered 09/09. I was assaulted 4 times(not including the dangerous fellon take down by Fannin Co SO) one man actually had his knife opened in his pocket.

I am comitted to finding the truth at whatever the cost; the total victim count, identity, and location, as well as GMH’s Associates and sidekicks.
Folks, GMH’s evil has contaminated this area for decades oblivious to Law Enforcement while preying on our Families, Friends, and Loved ones. While they were vanishing without a trace. He was hiding in plain sight…

ReLay, would you like for me to type a little slower for you.
I had multiple Dawson County Sheriffs Office Squad cars visit my house one morning a few months after I began the journey backtracking GMH. I contacted them and an Attorney and scheduled a meeting with them later that day. The Attorney misunderstood the meeting place, so I went solo, after all I had nothing to hide and had a feeling I knew what their motive or objective was,
A few weeks before this incident, in the Fall of 2007, I called and requested a platt of the 110+ Acre Densmore Farm, which was on the Market For Sale. The DCSO, did not have this info, nor did they ask, before playing their little cat and mouse, Good Cop, Bad Cop; routine on me. One of the Officers said that they were trying to prevent me from being sued. I responded that I was a Vietnam Era Veteran, and that our souldiers have fought and died to protect and defend our Constitutional Rights, which includes, but is not limited to our ‘Freedom of Speech’…
IMO, they had received a phone call from one of the Local Real Estate Brokers, who called my house in an attempt to silence me. When I told him the same thing I told the Sheriffs Officers, he called the UCSO, and ordered the intimidation..
Here it is two years later. Do I sound intimidate ReLay?

WXIA TV, censored my comments on their Safety Tips on the AT,and eventually banned me from their Forum for speculation and conjecture, and a few weeks later, they broke the story concerning the ‘Deadly Run Movie’: ‘Hunting Humans’, conjured up by Rael and Hilton.
Why the 6 or 7 pellet pistols, ReLay?

Over the past two years there were many coincidences, and parallels. Many had a spiritual meaning and many religious. A few months before the journey began backtracking Gary Michael Hilton, I found an old casette tape at the junk store that contained religious music. Although I like all types of music, and since my PU truck stereo only plays cassettes, I throwed it in my truck. This tape contained songs that described the journey, as well as his many innocent victims, with the exception of “The Rainbow bridge’> Hilton, simply got that reversed. The Rainbow bridge is where a person’s Beloved Pet goes when it passes and patiently waits for it’s Owner. They eventually meet, in this Glorious Land, at the entrance of the Rainbow Bridge…

The Name of the tape is: Reflections; beyond the Sunset. “The Dark Forest”

47.From another Forum:

In Response to Re: Cheryl’s Forum : This is a prime example. You have him along the same lines of God, which he is far from being. Yet your constant talk of how smart he was, how songs you found months before have some meaning, like most of your conclusions tend to make him seem larger than life. Is that how you want to present him? He is thought to have many victims. Emerson is the only one he admitted to and even that wouldn’t have been solved had it not been for his stop at the gas station. Nothing she did saved her life or the previous victims. He could still be parked there at the WalMart if not for those two people that recognized the van (not the tag) and the dog. I know you want to idolize Emerson but she ended up dead, nothing she did mattered because he wasn’t caught before killing her. You could say any of his friends were heros. The girlfriend he called, even Tabor. Who else did he talk with during that time?It’s been said there were several rapid calls to a doctor. Would he be considered a”friend?”
Posted by member2

Member1/2,3, I honor your opinion. simply disagree. As the old saying goes, everybody has one. Unfortunately as in Hustler Magazines’ Monthly Contest, some have their head stuck up theirs.

Sticking to the script, huh Taze? When you can’t debate another posters opinions or information that is shared, simply attack their character or credibility(legalese 101)..

RE: Along the same lines as God? Although GMH, thought of himself as God in an evil way, due to the power that he wielded over his innocent victims, In the two years of backtracking him, I have never indicated that they were synonymous.

Within four days of backtracking him, I analagized GMH as a Mountain Lion. Although he was thought to be a petty thief and drifter by Law Enforcement, who abducted his prey for their ATM cards, it was obvious to me that he was void of human emotions, yet as a camelean, had the ability to disguise his evil from others.. Due to his evil aura and residue, left to contaminate the forest, it was also obvious that he did not begin his reign of terror in the fall of 2007, but decades prior..

He was analagized as a Mountain Lion. GMH, would hunt his prey in a predetermined geographical area, capture them, return with them to his primary den, torture them, perrform rituals, and eventually devouring them, mind, spirit, and body. GMH, was an Evil, Demonic, Cannibal, Ritual Prolific Serial Killer, with no victim profile, only a preference..

GMH, was a predator, a Stealth Predator. Simply as that..

Wolfscratch: Meredith Hope Emerson, fought GMH, with her mind, body, and spirit, buying time for a rescue by LE. When the rescue never came, she sacrtificed herself so that other innocent victims could live. She was/is a kindred spirit, a courageous fighter, a hero…

For those who think that Prolific Serial Killer: Gary Michael Hilton’s Evil Reign of Terror, wasn’t brought to an abrupt end by Meredith Hope Emerson. Retrieve the Medical Report from the Gainesville, GA, Hospital, where he was taken for a physical and treatment after his arrest on 01/04/08. According to a person that I personally talked too, that was present when ther GBI brought him in, GMH had severe injuries to his body, specifically his back, when he arrived…The witness said that his back looked like a pit bull had mauled him…

From the Tally Democrat TDO Cheryl Dunlap Forum:

In Response to Re: Cheryl’s Forum : Wolf, as you know when we reach a certain age, we tend to have a problem remembering. So, if you have answered my question and I have forgotten the answer, or if I misquote you or any other poster, forgive me. My question is (1) do you think Hilton engaged in his homicidal behavior as a sport or to satisfy a need prior to the split with Tabor, and (2) do you agree with Georgia Peach that the breakup of the relationship with Tabor caused an escalation of Hilton’s homicidal behavior? From what I have read on this forum about the movie Hilton worked on with Rael, I got the feeling the theme of the movie was the “sport” aspect of hunting and killing women. In my mind, I would distinguish between “sport” and “need” to engage in this type of behavior. It seems that most of your postings lean more in the direction of a “need” to commit the crimes. Hope you don’t mind my questions for clarification.
Posted by HopefulPoster

HopefulPoster, what do ya mean “as you know, when we reach a certain age?” lol..

GMH, said to the Baliff and Jailers at the Dawson County, GA, Jail, when asked if he was so intelligent, why did he get caught? GMH, said, “they haven’t caught me since I was 14 Years old!” Since this was an emotional and reactional response to their question, it would indicate honesty. A Gobbler will gobble when an owl hoots. This is called a shock gobble, a natural reflex…

When I asked a LEO close to the GMH Investigation, “Why did he have no victim profile?” The Special Agent responded. “Food.” Although it was obvious to me, what the response meant, I asked what was meant by the response. The reply was, ” different cuts of meat, as you or I may go to the butcher market, and select different cuts of meat.”

As for the escalation. Who knows for sure. I am not certain that it was an escalation… Due to the silence, only the Task Force and VICAP knows, IMO..

As in any culture, or in any community spread across this great Nation, there are those who refuse or are unable to adapt to a civilized society, skirting the rules and laws that guide the rest of us through life. Fortunately they are the exception rather than the rule. Due to their selfish need to fulfill their evil desires or sexual fantasies, their lack of empathy for others, as well as their self assurance of remaining anonymous or stealth by hiding behind their masks of normalcy (at least in the darkness of their minds), they resort to the unimaginable, or unconscionable..
These psycopathetic predators, who know no boundaries of sanity, prey on unsuspecting innocent victims. Many of these predators hone their skills with each innocent victim devoured, increasing confidence and causing escalation.
Although, most of these predators have an uncanning ability to shield their motives, their expressionless face, hiding behind their fake smiles, combined with their lifeless eyes can not conceal this lie.

The only effective weapon that we all posses, is detection: Be cautious, adhere to personal safety rules, and ‘Trust your Natural Instincts’.

We all also have to be on guard 24/7 and look out for yhe welfare and safety of each other..

About 125 digital billboards across Georgia, including about 80 in the Atlanta area, are used to showcase some of the state’s most wanted cirminals.

By Tim Evans, USA TODAY

Crime fighting doesn’t get much simpler than this: When Virginia drug suspect Edward Myricks eyed his photo on a giant digital billboard, he knew his run from the authorities was over.
“We posted his photo on billboards in Newark (after learning the suspect had traveled there), and when he saw the billboards he turned himself in on March 11,” Chris Allen, an FBI spokesman, says.

The following post from another forum says it best:

Pat Brown Criminal Behavioralist has been studying serial killers for decades may have reached the same conclusions as others concerning the silence in Serial Killer Investigations…

Pat Brown said…
We could use a strong accountability system not dependent on appeals, but rather oversight. The public/citizens have a right to know exactly how decisions are made and cases are handled. It does not have to be in the midst of the case but certainly afterward there should be transparency. If there isn’t, how can we address issues of corruption, incompetance, and error? We need to know in order to fix problems and hold people accountable for what is supposed to be work done on behalf of the citizens. Somehow “the interest of the state” seems to preclude the citizenry which is odd considering the state IS the citizenry, well, at least in a democratic republic with a constitution.

Hustler’s position is that while we believe we have every right to the crime scene photos involving the murder of Meredith Emerson, out of consideration for the family, we will not pursue their release.

We note that we have been doing true crime stories with crime scene pix for a number of years. We do not publish the pix for any perverse sexual reasons. We publish them because they help us communicate the horror of the story. The pix are information, no different in that regard than the text. Hustler has always prided itself on not holding back; we tell it like it is. Other examples of this approach can be found in articles we’ve run on the use of depleted uranium in Iraq (which featured pix of children born horribly deformed) and our article on sexually transmitted diseases (which featured pix of diseased genitals). To suggest that we ran any of these pix for sexual titillation is insane. In any case, it says more about the accuser than us.

Our philosophy regarding Hustler has always been to make the reader feel something. Hopefully they will laugh at the cartoons and be aroused by the girl sets. But we believe shock, horror and revulsion should be a part of that mix. It’s called hard hitting journalism.

Sometimes Life imitates Art.
I have been backtracking & researching a Serial Killer named Gary Michael Hilton, since 01/06/08 when he held a victim within 200 yards of my home in an abandoned house.(Blood Mountain Hiker). The information that I have gathered has come from conventional and nonconventional investigative methods.
When he was arrested, he was thought to be a petty drifter. After backtracking him only a few days, it was obvious to me that he was very intelligent, cagey, calculating, evil, demonic, cannibal, ritual; Serial Killer, with no victim profile and had been preying on his victims for decades. My analogy of him was that of a mountain lion. He would hunt his prey, capture them, return them to his primary den, then devour them.
GMH’s victims range in age between 11 year old to 84 year old, no victim profile, only a preference; female mid 20s.

GMH’s IQ when he entered the military 167.. He could have been Ted Bundy’s Professor…
A LE officer close to the case, working a cold case of a missing GA school teacher was asked by me, why did he have no victim profile”? The Agents response: ‘ Food’…different cuts of meat….

In 1994, Hilton, helped to creatively write a movie that went straight to video: “Deadly Run”. He came up with the plot, the name, helped to creatively write, handpicked the cast & crew, shoot locations, and tutored the lead actor in the ‘Art’ of Serial Kiling. The movie’s plot; luring young girls to a cabin in the North GA Mtns, holding them captive, releasing them into the forest, then hunting them as prey..
Gary Michael had four friends three were attorneys: ‘Officers of the Court’…

The movie’s producer; Samuel Rael/Hilton’s Defense Attorney in a 1982 Dekalb County, GA, Arson case with 3 occupants said, “I knew that he was Sociopath, but just didn’t know that he was violent.”

A Serial Killer with a script… GMH was a master at emulation, he was a copycat of many with an added tyrst of his own creativity.

In the attic of the abandoned Densmore Farmhouse, he had a frigid weather room which was complete with a wood burning stove, which he used newspaper and cardboard as fuel, as well as a corrugated cardboard ‘Tuck Me In’ box.

I found an article from a 1989 Gainesville, GA Times next to the stove : Night Stalker says to the jury that sentenced him to the death penalty, “Lucifer will avenge me…I don’t expect you to understand me, I am beyond Good and Evil”…

In many of his interviews, GMH states that he reads constantly. I talked to a Jasper, GA, Thrift Store Volunteer, that eyewitnessed him at the Thrift Store purchasing books. I checked out their Novel selection, which was mostly related to Serial Killer themes, and here I am over 50 books later….
******************

The following contains a video of John Tabor responding to an interview of a phone call by Gary Hilton on 01/03/08, at 4:41PM(duration 20 minutes)while Meredith Hope Emerson: Blood Mountain Hiker, was being held hostage. Meredith Hope Emerson, was murdered the following morning, while making a courageous attempt to escape his wrath.

Pay close attention to Tabor’s interview.

I eat at this Huddle House almost daily and know all the employees that were working there that tragic day. Their testimony of the events are contradictoiry as to GMHs demeanor. GMH was loud, boisterous, iradic, and GMH was cursing so much that they were at the point to request that he end the call and leave the premises.

Ask yourself why John Tabor, didn’t make a simple 911 call that any 7 year old child would have made. Temember this was the second call he received from GMH. The first call was from a pay phone at Weavers Amoco.

I personally made a call from the same HH telephone. Caller ID displayed: ‘Huddle House & the Phone Number’ on the recipients phone.

How would the ‘Most Wanted’ POI or Suspect in the Southeastern US and beyond , cash a CHECK?

Who was the ‘Ruse’ intended for, GMH, the GBI, or the American People?

Wolfscratch: A Dawson County Sheriff works, in Uniform with a County Sheriffs car, at the Bank, only feet from the Huddle House and Pickens County Sheriffs Dept. actually had a Precinct in the FootHills Shopping Center where the Huddle House is located. The phone call lasted over 20 minutes according to my information.
I saw GMHs van in the woods near my home at 6:30PM only 1 and 1/2 hours after the Huddle House Phone Call.

. GMH, was eyewitnessed at the Dollar Store at 8:30 PM that same day purchasing duct tape and plastic wrap, according to my info.

Meredith Hope Emerson, made a heroic attempt to escape the following morning, where she met her faith.

Gary Michael Hilton, admits in the Pickens Co SC Sheriffs interview(concerning Jason Knapp: Clemson Student) at Jackson Prison, GA, that she is the reason that his Evil Reign of Terror was abruptly ended…

I am reposting this arrticle and a comment in response by a viewer:Two more Innocent Victims of Gary Hilton & Associates:

http://ncmountainwoman.blogspot.com/2009/11/two-wonderful-peo
Mountain Musings: Two Wonderful People Still Remembered
Nov 23, 2009 … In 1990 they moved to the North Carolina mountains they loved so much. … Their car was found near a trail head here in Transylvania County. …

‘We can all take a lesson from John and Irene Bryant’. …

Two Wonderful People Still Remembered
[Without any apology from the writer, this is a repeat of a post done last November. It will be repeated every November as long as this blog continues. The subject means that much to me.]

They met on a blind date and took an instant liking to each other. Much of their courtship consisted of hiking in the mountains of North Carolina. She was three years his senior, a fact that brought many laughs in years to come. They were married in 1949.

He became a lawyer. A lover of animals, she became a veterinarian, rather unusual for her time. Her continued quest for knowlege led her to take courses in forestry, icythyology, and she studied all things living. She would later give up her veterinary practice to take college-level courses in science full time.

They lived in Montana and in New York, but their love was for Western North Carolina where they always intended to retire. The couple were passionate lovers of the outdoors. When their children grew up they traveled extensively, hiking some of the most rugged mountains in the world. They always stayed in hostels or inexpensive lodging because, as he said, “You meet so many more interesting people that way.”

When they were in their 50s, he hiked the entire Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia. She joined him for much of the hike and they celebrated with champagne at the end of the trail. Other hikers were delighted with her ability to identify every tree, every bush, every flower along the trail.

Only one of many inspiring comments:

Scattering Lupines said…

A beautiful, haunting post and a wonderful memorial. The world losing SO much beauty and truth– such as these two people– to senseless malice.

Thank you for sharing this sobering post and the story of these two twinkling, wonderful lives. I don’t even know them and it’s the first time I’ve heard their story, yet I’m grieving the loss and tragedy.

Interesting observation from wolfie I found floating in the Internet this morning. I like to go Internetting early, before the flies come out.

For those just tuning in, wolf is making a reference to the recent request by Hustler magazine for crime scene photos from the Meredith Emerson case. After months of silence on GMH, this is the only story we’re treated to, a piece of public relations designed to keep a lid on all things Gary Michael Hilton, really. That’s all. Not the noble attempt to shield a horrified and decent public, as we all first imagined, myself included.

Folks, I have been backtracking and researching Gary Michael Hilton & Associates, for an average of 18 hours a day since 01/06/08, which began as a search for Meredith Hope Emersons’ remains in Dawson Forest WMA(Wolfscratch Wilderness). I have been hiking, hunting, and fishing this area for half a century.

Gary Hilton knew the forest better than me.
What I have discovered will simply break your heart.
I am confident that GMH had Associates and sidekicks from time to time.

Meredith Hope Emerson, fought GMH, mind, body, and spirit….She was buying time for a rescue from Law Enforcement, which never came. For four days she refused to give GMH, her PIN for her credit cards.

Meredith Hope Emerson, knew the magnitude of GMHs evil reign of terror and sacrificed her life, so that other innocent victims may live.

If not for Meredith Hope Emersons courage and heroic efforts, GMH, would still be preying on our families, friends, and loved ones.

The Meredith Hope Emerson tragedy touched my heart and I had the same reaction as most of the posters on this forum at first glance of the FOI Request for the Crime Scene Photos. After further research, the motivation for the press release by the two State Reps seemed curious to me. The article was fed to the AJC four hours before the AP picked up the story.

My intention is not to sway your opinions on this matter, but to share the information that I have uncovered. I have much of the GBI investigation records as well as timelines, and correction dept. records of Gary Hilton etc…

Gary Hilton had been an active Stealth Predator for almost 5 decades. (His words, “since I was 14 years old)

He had no victim profile, only a preference.

GMH is very intelligent, calculating, creative, narcissistic psychopath.

Mother killed his dad at age 5 years old.

GMH shot his stepdad at age 14, confined to Juvenile/escaped.

Received his GED, then joined the Army: Airborne Special Forces Trained.

GBI, knew since 1980 that an abnormal amount of women were vanishing in GA. Just couldn’t identify why or who..

GMH, was knowledgeable of (VICAP)geographical profiling, forensics LE SOP, Hunting Schedules, Amcient Religions and Native American History, etc.
GMHs Dr License was queried over 80 times in GA alone, in the 9 years before his arrest. Many in restricted areas or posted lands.

Had 4 friends: 3 were Attorneys..

Samuel Rael: Dekalb Co. GA Attorney/Producer of the Deadly Run Movie: ‘Hunting Humans’ 1994(netflix)
(GMH, named, helped to creatively write, hand picked cast, crew, shoot locations(Cleveland GA) & advised lead actor in the traits of a serial Killer.

GMH, torched his fiance’s home in 1982 Dekalb Co, GA, hit a car during the getaway. Only spent 4 hrs in jail: ‘not prosecuted.’

GMH was a copycatter of Serial Killers Prior.

GMH’s Dr. was fined $7500.00 after GMHs arrest; for over prescribing meds. One of the rx had homicidal tendacies as a side affect.

GMH said “when I come off my meds, the Demons come back”.

Pulled his teeth to look more evil.

GBI interview on 01/07/08 enroute to Meredith’s remains DF WMA, GMH said, “this is not the only body that has been dumped out here.”

Please go back to page 2 and read my comments for a brief summary of my observations og GMH & associates reign of terror. The media has been silenced or spoonfed missinformation for over two years. Silence was GMHs most Lethal Weapon. Although much has been learned from his capture, The lessons learned have come at very high cost to the many victims and their families. We cannot afford for this tragic history to repeat itself…

I would apreciate your feedback..

The Wind in the Woods (Fiction)
Rose Senehi

Canterbury House

Thought I would post this Book Info again. Sallie Bissel, has written a review of the book based on Gary Michael Hilton Serial Killer. Sallie is a very good writer and her book Legacy of Masks’ has many parallels to Gary Michael Hilton & Associates Reign of Terror.
The books title in its self says plenty…

Fiction

The Wind in the Woods is a family saga about a man’s commitment to the legacy of North Carolina’s Green River Valley and to the camp he built to share its wonders. Charismatic widower Tiger Morrison has spent a lifetime saving children from nature-deficit disorder, only to find himself in the fight of his life to protect his undisturbed world from land-grabbing developers in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains. He’s also fighting to win Katie Warlick, but she can’t forgive him for not wanting her the way she wanted him 20 years previously.

While Tiger is involved in the struggle to save his camp, his daughter, Sammy, is trying to find her place in the clannish realm of summer youth camps. As she searches for her identity, she never suspects that a serial killer is stalking her. Author Rose Senehi used the confession of an actual serial killer who murdered hikers in the North Georgia mountains in 2008 to create the plot line in which the murderer stalks both Sammy and Katie.

Reviews

“Fans of Rose Senehi will not be disappointed in her latest book, The Wind in the Woods. Set in the mountains of western North Carolina, it’s a study in the unmined territory of summer camps—the people who run them, the challenges facing them, and the long-reaching impact that a wilderness experience can have on a young person’s life. In this book an old love is rekindled, a new love begins, and a young boy takes his first fledgling steps towards manhood. All this while the future of the camp is in jeopardy from real-estate developers, and members of the camp staff are stalked by a maniacally devious killer. Writing with a sharp eye on the beauty of the deep woods and a keen ear for the songs of birds and trickle of water, Rose Senehi gives us a vivid picture of modern day drama set in ancient woods.”
Salli Bissell, author of Legacy of Masks

“Rose Senehi is that rarest of combinations: fiction writer and environmental activist. Her books are as much about the reverence for the natural world as they are about the fictional history of the places she has inhabited and loved. . . . Just as the Green River valley and headwaters were worth protecting in Senehi’s story, for the same reasons is this book worth reading. The Wind in the Woods put the reader ‘in another zone’ and like the young people attending the camps in western North Carolina and their experience in the woods, it gives the readers the joy of discovering themselves for the first time—with as much ease and nurturing satisfaction as ‘crumbling cornbread into milk.’”
Thomas Rain Crowe, author of Zoro’s Field and The End of Eden
********************************************************
Why is Salli Bissell’s review coincidental?

The ‘Legacy of Masks’, story line takes place near the Pisgah National Forest where the Bryants were abducted and murdered and….

http://drhelen.blogspot.com/2009/01/serial-killer-shows-on-biography.html

The area of the Appalachians. where I live, and where GMH’s primary den is located was labeled ‘Wolfscratch’, by the Cherokees. The only book that I have read since college is ‘Wolfscratch Wilderness’; a walk back in time of this area. Unless of course, you count the 380+ pages of redacted pretrial evidence, in the Death Penalty Trial of Gary Hilton, for the abduction and murder of Cheryl Dunlap in Tallahassee, FL.

I am confident that the books given to Cheryl Dunlap, and Meredith Emerson, by GMH, came from used book and thrift stores. GMH, had been eyewitnessed in the Jasper, GA Thrift Store on many occasions by volunteers/employees.

I have had alot of times on my hands lately and thought I would go to the Thrift store and check out their selection of books. Of 3 shelves of books, 1 shelf was dedicated to ‘Serial Killers’. I purchased several of the books. After researching the authors, I found that although the stories are fiction,(portrayed fictitciously for liability purposes) many are based on actual events, with consultants from Mental Institutions, LE, profilers, & Justice Officials, both retired and active.

The last book that I read is tittled ‘Mind Tryst’, by Robin Carr. After reading the book, I inadvertantly opened the cover and saw where the books original purchase was made:

‘A BOOK NOOK’

BUY-SELL-TRADE

3342 CLAIRMONT RD

ATLANTA, GA 30329

(Clairmont Rd. is aprox 70 miles from the Jasper Thrift Store)

This is Gary M. Hilton’s old stomping grounds…Coincidence, maybe…

Gary Hilton: Misfit with a mean streak | ajc.com

Gary Hilton was officially charged with the murder of hiker Meredith …. though Tabor let Hilton live at a building he owned on Clairmont Road
Something that I noticed to be curious about the majority of the over 25 books purchased was that their copyright dates were from the 1980’s to the late 1990’s.
Many of the books were of serial killers that were copycat killers of individual serial killers past.
Gary Michael Hilton, had no victim profile, breaks all molds of serial killers profiled, changed hiis MOs, signature, and method of abduction.
He was very creative and emulated a soldier on a perpetual manuever,
as well as a ‘Traveling Preacher’, long distant hiker, and a kyaker.

I am confident that the books given to Cheryl Dunlap, and Meredith Emerson, by GMH, came from used book and thrift stores. GMH, had been eyewitnessed in the Jasper, GA Thrift Store on many occasions by volunteers/employees.

Hiker never gave up fight, Hilton said | ajc.com
As they struggled near the Appalachian Trail, Meredith Emerson disarmed her … He gave her a book to read, “Cannibals and Kings: Origins of Cultures” by …Marvin Harris

QUOTE]By the ninth day of searching, investigators were following up on leads. One officer received information that Dunlap had been seen at Leon Sinks reading a book by V.C. Andrews; “Flowers in the Attic”:

The book’s success was not without controversy. The discussion of a sexual relationship that develops between an adolescent brother and sister in the novel has led to its being banned in certain areas at different times. The Richmond High School in Rhode Island removed it because it contained “offensive passages concerning incest and sexual intercourse”. In 1994, it was removed from the Oconee County school libraries due to “the filthiness of the material”.[

A detective checked bookstores in Tallahassee, including the Borders on Apalachee Parkway, to see whether Cheryl Dunlap, had purchased books
******************************

Think, the question should have been, whether GMH, had purchased the book, or books. Friends of Cheryl, said that ‘Flowers in the Attic’, would not be a book that she would have read or purchased…

Here’s a different take on the teeth situation. Tabor said Hilton had lost a bridge and had pulled one tooth that was bothering him. Is more being read into his dental care than needs be? I would hope that people aren’t convicted of crimes based on their dental profiles unless there is some matching pattern on a victim.

Arrest in ‘Grim Sleeper’ murders

Los Angeles – The suspect in the “Grim Sleeper” killings was arrested at least 15 times for burglary, assaults and other crimes, but avoided prison even though a probation officer urged that he be given the maximum allowed, court and jail records show.

The crimes of 57-year-old Lonnie Franklin Jr. never were considered serious enough to send him to state prison or to warrant his entry in the state’s DNA database, authorities said.
“He’s danced to the raindrops for a long time without getting wet,” said the head of the task force investigating the killings, detective Dennis Kilcoyne.

Although Meredith Hope Emerson’s life was cut short , she touched hearts from all over the US and beyond. She gives us all Strength, Faith, and most of all Hope…

A decade old murder was solved in Georgia due to ‘Meredith’s DNA Law’, which was passed shortly after her tragic abduction and murder. The DNA match was ruled out due to the suspects incarceration.

Meredith Hope Emerson, was a kindred spirit and a fighter. ‘She still is’…

http://www.blueridgeoutdoors.com/current-issue/jennifer-pharr-outdoor-person-of-the-year/

In the past four years, Jennifer Pharr Davis has logged more miles on trails than most people will in a lifetime. Since her first thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2005, she has hiked over 6,000 miles on six continents, including a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail and a summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Being on trails is where she feels most happy and comfortable—although a tragedy earlier this year nearly changed that.

On New Year’s Day, 24-year-old Meredith Emerson was hiking on Georgia’s Blood Mountain when she was abducted by Gary Michael Hilton. Emerson struggled and courageously fought Hilton for three days before he brutally murdered her. Hilton has since confessed to the crime and is serving a 30-year prison sentence. He is also the only suspect in the murders of John and Irene Bryant, whose bodies were found in the Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests of North Carolina.

The two women didn’t know each other, but when Davis learned about Emerson’s death, it felt like a personal attack. It angered her that suddenly the Appalachian woods—statistically safer than any city street—would be feared. So she decided to take back the wild the way she knows best—with a hike.

This summer Davis set a supported speed record on the Appalachian Trail, completing the 2,175-mile trail in 57 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes. She also became the fifth fastest person to ever finish the trail. Hiking an average of 38 miles a day for nearly two full months, Davis dedicated the endeavor to Emerson’s memory.

Photos can be photoshopped and graphic crime scene photos are all over the internet. A good example of this is the stoning of the girl recently under sharia law, but many just as graphic can be found in the US.

This is why the reps spoonfed the article to the AJC, for political spin and distraction from the truth. It wasn’t picked up on the AP for fours later. They knew that, due to the effect that Meredith Hope Emerson, had on the community, that there would be outrage and a public uproar, and there was….Millions of links in only days. A political ploy, and damn effective one, I must admit…
As for crime scene photos, there were thousands of crime scene photos taken during the investigation, not all included the graphic photos of Meredith’s remains.. When a true crime writer, such as Ann Rule, writes about a case, it is SOP to file a FOI request for all investigative records.
Gary Michael Hilton, had been doing his evil deeds since the age of 14 years old, according to him, and was 61 years old when arrested, which was only due to Meredith Hope Emerson’s determination to see his reign of terror come to an abrupt end….

Mamie, there are many concerned people following Gary Michael Hilton & Associates reign of terror. Several FOIs have been filed, but due to the expense, not all available information has been retrieved.
The following link is info learned and shared from an interview in late February, 2008, by the GBI & FBI BAU2, of GMH’s mother. Until this info was retrieved, we had only tracked GMH up and down the Eastern US. Seems, he sent photos of his camping trips to his mother and some were from the Western US…

Who is “we” that have the right to this information? Are you related to Meredith, Mr. Adams? Would you submit photos of your daughters for this? Frankly, you sound deranged.
****************************************
Mamie, Meredith Hope Emerson, was my neighbor for just four days…
The journey backtracking and researching GMH, began as a search for Meredith’s remains on 01/06/2008, concentrating on abandoned wells and houses in this area known as Wolfscratch Wilderness…

It’s still interesting that you still make yourself sound like the centerpiece of this entire case. You don’t sound like a concerned citizen so much as someone who constantly wants to draw attention to himself.

Mamie, I honor your opinion. It is not my intention to draw attention to myself. I simply want Justice for his many victims, both deceased and incarcerated. The truth of GMH’s reign of terror needs to be revealed, as well as any associates that were complicit in his crimes.

Meredith Hope Emerson, should have been rescued on 01/03/08..
