Glenda Raper Interview - Live-in friend of Keith McKaskle
Note: Keith McKaskle was stabbed 113 times in his own carport. The murder remains unsolved.

Keith would meet Jay Campbell every Thursday night at the Wagon Wheel in Little Rock. She does not know if there were any narcotic dealings between the two, but knew they were exchanging information at first about the train deaths. (Keith was the manager of the Wagon Wheel at this time.) Glenda said that Keith later found out that Campbell was involved in a lot of illegal activities with those who were to some degree involved in the train deaths. Keith quit meeting Campbell after he discovered this, but he felt that Campbell had already relayed information that he had gotten from Keith to those involved.

Campbell has commented that he thought the investigation surrounding him (Lasater) was "chicken shit."

He first learned that Jay Campbell was associated with the DEA on the plane trip to the Arkansas/Ole Miss football game at Jackson, Mississippi, in 1985 when it was mentioned by Campbell himself.

However, Campbell had told him that as an officer with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office he had been watching him (Lasater) in connection with his official duties but that he found that there was not enough there to make a case.
