After confirming the truthfulness of the witness, the FBI offered to place the witness in protective custody and instructed John to turn over all of his information to them. Promising to solve the case before the end of 1994, the FBI also stated that Chuck Banks would be charged with obstruction of justice which prompted Jean Duffey to come out of hiding. In June of 1994, Jean and John Brown met for the first time.
Robert Shepherd State Drug Czar
At the Arkansas State Capitol, Governor Clinton shared an adjoining office with State Drug Czar Robert Shepherd. Shepherd, a former sheriff from Dan Harmon's district, was appointed by Clinton to lead Arkansas's so called war on drugs. On at least three occasions, Shepherd attempted to suppress investigations into Kevin and Don's murders. In 1990, Shepherd paid a visit to U.S. Attorney Chuck Banks to persuade him that Jean Duffey should be ignored. In 1993, Shepherd told John Brown that his career would be better off if he concentrated his efforts elsewhere. And in 1995, FBI Agent Phyllis Cournan reported that Shepherd had attempted to interfere with the case.
Finally, on November 29, 1995, the FBI, referring to Kevin and Don's murders, announced to Linda Ives that "in light of the fact that there is no evidence, it's time you consider the fact that a crime has not been committed." (FBI Agent Bill Temple quotation.) The obstruction of justice continues.
Unlike other videos about our government, Obstruction of Justice is not based on unsubstantiated accusations and innuendoes. Obstruction is a carefully documented story of the "train deaths," which has a powerful impact on everyone who sees it. Jean Duffey and Linda Ives negotiated control of the contents of Obstruction of Justice, which tells this amazing story, and they have vowed to raise enough money through video sales to file a civil law suit. This is clearly the only justice the families of Kevin and Don will ever see.
