During Bill Clinton's years as Arkansas governor, Stanley Huggins[9], Calvin R. Walraven[10], Kevin Ives and Don Henry[11], and Margie Thompson[12] were a few other sudden deaths which ended or prevented scandal investigations. calvin elders link

Jeff Rhodes: He had information on the deaths of Ives, Henry & McKaskle. His burned body was found in a trash dump in April 1989. He died of a gunshot wound to the head and there was some body mutilation, leading to the probably speculation that he was tortured prior to being killed

He has told his father he feared for his life because he had witnessed an air-drop at Mena

Richard Winters

Winters were a suspect in the deaths of Ives & Henry, and had offered to cooperate. He was killed by a shotgun blast to the face during a "robbery" in July 1989, which was subsequently proven to be a setup.
Dan Harmon, the Prosecutor who Winters reportedly made the offer to, has since been implicated in the Kevin/Ives deaths and is now in jail for running his office as a racket.
Jordan Ketelsen Murdered June 1990, believed to have been connected to the
McKaskle murder was killed by a shotgun blast to the head. There was no
police investigation and his body was cremated before an autopsy could be
were found close to Shobe Road near Alexander, Arkansas. They had been run over by a Union Pacific train. The state medical examiner, Fahmy Malak, ruled that the deaths were accidental--saying the two boys had smoked too much marijuana, and then had fallen asleep on the railroad tracks.

Linda Ives: We too had heard about Barry Seal's operation dropping drugs and cash around the state, we made contact with a pilot who claimed to have many times flown the drop at the place where my son died.

Local law enforcement was in charge of securing those drops, he told us. "And just prior to Kevin and Don's deaths a drop at that location had gone missing ... so local law enforcement was on Red Alert. They were waiting for somebody to try to steal their next drop. And Kevin and Don happened by.

Several witnesses place two Pulaski County narcotics officers, believed to be Kirk Lane and Jay Campbell, beating up two boys at a grocery store right by where they found the boys' bodies.

From the soundtrack of "The New Clinton Chronicles" (sorry I misspelled "Fahmy Malak" earlier.

LINDA IVES (Mother of Kevin Ives): On August 22nd, 1987, Kevin had spent the night with his friend Don Henry. They left Don's home around 12:30 or quarter till 1, on the 23rd of August in the early morning hours, and the next thing we knew they had been run over by a train. There seems to be a small airstrip in the area. There had been sightings and reports of small airplanes flying very low with lights off in the area. I believe they saw something they shouldn't have seen. Three weeks later their deaths were ruled accidental by the State Medical examiner, Fahmy Malak, and we disagreed with that ruling because we thought the evidence pointed to homicide. At that point, we had a lot of questions and no answers and the facts didn"t add up to what he was telling us, so we decided to get a second opinion and met with resistance from all fronts, both with our law enforcement, with the state crime lab, with everybody that we turned to. We obtained court orders, requesting samples of everything that the crime lab had for a second opinion, and Fahmy Malak resisted court orders. He refused to obey them.


LINDA IVES: There were allegations of tampering with evidence in murder cases. There were allegations of perjury in different cases. It didn't seem to matter what Malak did, Clinton protected him. He made excuses, such as, he's overworked, he's just stressed out, he's underpaid. They gave him a $14,000 raise, which was an insult to my family, as well as a lot of others in the state who to this day are struggling with asinine rulings in the deaths of children and other loved ones. I was outraged that protecting a political crony of Clinton's was more important than the fact that two young boys had been murdered.

JOHN BROWN: Dan Harmon was just a local attorney in the town of Benton, Arkansas, and after Don Henry and Kevin Ives were killed and their bodies placed on the tracks and run over by a train, he approached Linda Ives and the Henry family about trying to help them. He's a manipulator; he gives a great closing argument in court. He's been trained for years to play the game. He knows how to do it; he's very good at it. Mr. Harmon can win your confidence and make you think he's the greatest guy in the world. He did that to Linda Ives. He helped lead them down a path that absolutely led to nowhere on this case. I got involved in the case and immediately Harmon tried to discredit me without even knowing me. I couldnt figure it out. I ran across a young lady named Sharline Wilson, who told a horror story that I didn't really believe at the time. So I started searching for evidence to substantiate just part of what she had said. Harmon went ballistic; he called, he threatened me, he threatened Sheriff Pridgeon, he threatened Captain Gene Donald, the chief deputy, all because I talked to this one woman.

SHARLINE WILSON: The people at the track that night, to my knowledge, were Dan Harmon, Keith McKaskle, Larry Rochelle. I do know that the boys were watching the drop site, O.K.? And they got curious as to what was being dropped there.

JOHN BROWN: The fact is, we know who killed these kids. The whole reason this case has been slowed down, stopped wherever we're at - they can't do anything with it as long as Clinton is in office, because the tracks go right back to Bill Clinton being involved in the cover-up. He took care of everybody that ever covered anything up in this case; everybody got promoted.


LINDA IVES: Shortly before Keith McKaskle was murdered, he knew that he was fixing to be murdered. He told his family good-bye, told his friends good-bye. The night of the elections in 1988, he took two pennies out of his pocket and threw them on the bar there at the Wagon Wheel and said "If Jim Steed loses this election, my life isn't worth two cents," and he was murdered that night. Jeff Rhodes was a young man from Benton, who was murdered in 1989. Shortly before his death he made a phone call to his dad in Texas, and told him he needed to get out of Benton, Arkansas, that he felt he knew too much about the boys on the railroad tracks, and the death of Keith McKaskle. A couple of weeks later Jeff was found dead. He'd been shot in the head. They'd attempted to cut off his head, and hands and feet, and set him on fire in a dump.

Review & Outlook
Obstruction and Abuse:
A Pattern

The Clinton Presidency, in our view, has in large part been an exercise in defining downward the standards that elected officials must abide by and that voters in a democracy expect them to abide. At the current juncture, readers may find a refresher course instructive.
Train Deaths
1987: Arkansas State Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak rules the deaths of teenagers Kevin Ives and Don Henry, found run over by a train, "accidental," saying the boys had smoked too much marijuana and fallen asleep on the tracks. A second autopsy and grand jury probe, finding evidence of a knife wound and beatings, declared it "definitely a homicide."
1989: With the controversy over the train deaths case growing, a commission headed by Arkansas Department of Health Director Joycelyn Elders clears Dr. Malak. Nine months later, Gov. Clinton proposes a $32,000 raise for the medical examiner; the state legislature cuts it in half. A Malak ruling in a 1981 death case involving Clinton's mother, nurse-anesthetist Virginia Kelley, had helped her avoid intense legal scrutiny.
1990: Jean Duffey, a prosecutor who developed information about a possible connection between the train deaths and drugs dropped from low-flying planes was fired and felt it necessary to flee the state, blaming incoming prosecuting attorney Dan Harmon for a "smear campaign."
1991: A month before Clinton announces his presidential run, Dr. Malak is promoted to a new job as a Health Department consultant to Dr. Elders.
1997: Prosecutor Harmon is convicted on five counts of racketeering, extortion and drug distribution for using his office as a criminal enterprise. The train deaths case remains unresolved.

A link to the Henry Ives Case, including similar cases

Fahmy Malak

Bill Clinton gave Dr Malak A Raise For his work

Nevertheless, both Governor Clinton and the Arkansas State Medical Examiner Commission Chairman, Jocelyn Elders, who had the power to remove Malak from office, not only insisted he remain, they gave him a raise.

Jocelyn Elders, Arkansas State Medical Examiner Commission Chairman

    "Based on the facts I have, I really feel that Arkansas owes Dr. Malak a great debt and a real apology."

After a grand jury overruled Malak in the Ives-Henry case, Clinton hired two out-of-state pathologists to review Malak's performance. They gave him high marks and said he should get a raise.

But the visiting pathologists were paid $20,000 from Clinton's discretionary fund. And one said at the time that he and his colleague agreed during meetings with state officials, including Betsey Wright, Clinton's chief of staff at the time, not to conduct a systematic review of Malak's cases.

* After Malak falsely accused Malcolm, the deputy county coroner, of killing the man who was taken off life support, Steve Nawojczyk, the Pulaski County coroner and Malcolm's boss, complained to Clinton. Clinton suggested only that Malak apologize.

Two months later, Clinton sent a proposal to the Legislature to raise Malak's salary by 41.5% -- to $117,875.


Arkansas State Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak performed the first autopsies and ruled that Kevin and Don had fallen asleep on the tracks in a psychedelic stupor after smoking massive amounts of marijuana. Malak originally intended to rule the deaths a suicide, but the sheriff warned against it, so without any supporting evidence, Malak generated the marijuana-stupor scenario. The parents demanded a second opinion and the bodies were exhumed. An out-of-state team of forensic investigators agreed that the signs of murder were clear, and the ruling was changed to homicide. Malak was exposed as an incompetent fool and in spite of a public outcry to have Malak removed from office, Governor Bill Clinton made excuses for him. It became apparent that Malak was trying to prevent the deaths from being investigated as murders, and although Malak became a political liability, Clinton supported him and recommended he be given a raise.

Bill Clinton refused to meet parents of the dead boys

He steadfastly refused to even meet with Linda Ives and other families around the state who were victimized by Dr. Malak


    "Today the governor was asked if Malak should resign."

Bill Clinton, Arkansas Governor

    "I don't think that's a decision that I should make based on what I now know."


After the boys were killed, there was a huge outcry against Malak in Arkansas over his ruling that the boys had fallen asleep on the tracks due to marijuana intoxication. The ruling was widely ridiculed, and the families were appalled by it.

They had the bodies exhumed and brought in a well-respected medical examiner and pathologist from Atlanta, Georgia, for a second round of autopsies. That pathologist pointed out evidence that was later corroborated by employees in the Arkansas Medical Examiner's office. The evidence showed that both boys had wounds indicating they'd been murdered.

That evidence persuaded the Saline County grand jury to overturn Malak's ruling about the cause and manner of death. That drew a lot of attention to other Malak rulings. As Linda Ives campaigned to have him removed from office, other people began to come forward and bring to light other, equally questionable rulings he had made.

The public distrust of Malak became intense. Yet Bill Clinton steadfastly, resolutely refused to do anything to remove him from office. Dr. Joycelyn Elders was the head of the State Health Department at the time. She had authority regarding Malak's employment, but instead of removing him she was vocal in her support. So Malak stayed until just weeks before Bill Clinton announced he was going to run for President. At that point the landscape shifted dramatically.

After protesting that he would not resign, Malak suddenly did resign and was offered a job at the State Health Department, under Dr. Elders. I should add that Malak received a couple of raises between the time of his ruling on the boys' deaths and his subsequent removal as Medical Examiner.

Richard Garrett and Dan Harmon


Attorney Richard Garrett is Dan Harmon's side-kick, his right-hand-man, his lap-dog, his shadow, his yes-man. Get the picture? If Dan Harmon is involved, Richard Garrett is involved.

Garrett was Harmon's assistant when Harmon headed the county grand jury investigation of the train deaths. Garrett has been Harmon's deputy at all times Harmon has been the district's prosecutor. According to a U.S. Attorney inner-office memo, Dan Harmon and Richard Garrett were primary targets of the 1990 federal grand jury investigation of public official corruption in Saline County. When U.S. Attorney Chuck Banks cleared Dan Harmon of any wrong-doing, he also cleared Richard Garrett.

Keith McKaskle, who was allegedly at the tracks that night

Keith McKaskle, who was allegedly at the tracks that night, turned over information he had about the boys' murders to Richard Garrett (deputy prosecutor). Believing he had talked to the wrong people, McKaskle had made his own funeral arrangements, told family and friends good bye, and within days was murdered himself - stabbed 113 times. His murder remains unsolved.

Monica Lewinsky story broke on January 21 1998

The story broke in the mainstream press on January 21,1998 in The Washington Post.[19] T

Mary Mahoney Killed Jul 8, 1997

In the pre-trial publicity surrounding Paula Jones lawsuit Mike Isikoff had dropped hints that a "former White House staffer" with the initial "M" was about to go public with her story of sexual harassment at 1600 Pennsylvania. Just days later, gunmen entered the Starbuck's while the crew was cleaning up after closing.

Mary's two associates, Aaron Goodrich, 18 and Emory Evans, 25, were taken to a room and shot. Mary herself had five bullets in her, from at least two different guns, most likely with silencers.

Paula Jones filed a sexual harassment suit against Clinton on May 6, 1994

Paula Jones filed a sexual harassment suit against Clinton on May 6, 1994, two days prior to the 3-year statute of limitation.

whitewater started in nov 1993

The Whitewater controversy was an American political controversy that began with the real estatedealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their associates Jim and Susan McDougal in the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed business venture in the 1970s and 1980s.

In November 1993, David Hale, the source of criminal allegations against Bill Clinton in the Whitewater affair, alleged that Clinton, while governor of Arkansas, pressured him to provide an illegal $300,000 loan to Susan McDougal, the partner of the Clintons in the Whitewater land deal.[103]

A U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation did result in convictions against the McDougals for their role in the Whitewater project, but the Clintons themselves were never charged, and Clinton maintains innocence in the affair.

Ruling Overturned In The Henry Ives' Case

In September 1988, the grand jury issued a report stating, "Our conclusions are that the case is definitely a homicide."

The Deaths Related To The Henry Ives' Case


Kevin Ives & Don Henry Initial cause of death was reported to be the result of falling asleep on railroad tracks in Arkansas on Aug. 23, 1987. This ruling was reported by the state medical examiner Fahmy Malak, appointed at the pleasure of Gov. Bill Clinton. Later it was determined that Kevin died from a crushed skull prior to being placed on the tracks. Don had been stabbed in the back. Rumors indicate that they might have stumbled upon part of the Mena drug operation.

Keith Coney Keith had information on the Ives/Henry deaths. Died in a motorcycle accident in July 1988 while being chased by a car. Ruled a traffic accident.

Keith McKaskle McKaskle had information on the Ives/Henry deaths. He was stabbed to death in November 1988. He had told his family someone was out to kill him and told them "goodbye."

Gregory Collins Greg had information on the Ives/Henry deaths. He died from a gunshot blast to the face in January 1989. Declared a suicide.

Paul Olson A federal witness in investigations to drug money corruption in Chicago politics, Paul had just finished two days of FBI interviews when his plane ride home crashed, killing Paul and 130 others on Sept 8, 1994. The Sept. 15, 1994, Tempe Tribune newspaper reported that the FBI suspected that a bomb had brought down the airplane.

Jeff Rhodes He had information on the deaths of Ives, Henry & McKaskle. His burned body was found in a trash dump in April 1989. He died of a gunshot wound to the head and there was some body mutilation, specifically that his hands and feet had been partially sawed off, leading to the speculation that he was tortured prior to being killed. The body was then burned.

James Milan Milam had information on the Ives & Henry deaths. He was decapitated. The state Medical examiner, Fahmy Malak, initially ruled death due to natural causes, claiming that the victim's small dog had eaten the head, which was later recovered from a trash bin several blocks away.

Richard Winters Winters was a suspect in the deaths of Ives & Henry, and had offered to cooperate. He was killed by a shotgun blast to the face during a "robbery" in July 1989. Dan Harmon, the prosecutor to whom Winters reportedly made the offer, has been accused of involvement in the Kevin/Ives deaths and is now in jail for running his office as a racket.

Jordan Kettleson Kettleson had information on the Ives & Henry deaths. He was found shot to death in the front seat of his pickup in June 1990.

A similar case - Norman Ladner, Mississippi teenager found in 1989 on railway tracks.

Ladner Case vs. Ives & Henry Case
I have made a couple of "vs." posts lately because I feel certain cases are quite similar. However, I had never seen the Norman Ladner case until tonight and I must say that the first thing that popped into my mind was the Ives & Henry case. These two cases are not just similar, but eeringly similar. I am probably not the first to make this observation, and would like to hear fellow poster's opinions on this notion.

Take away the fact that Ives and Henry happened to be laid on train tracks after their death, and these two cases appear nearly identical. All 3 boys were right around 17 years old. Ives and Henry had a .22 rifle and were walking rural land in Arkansas. Ladner also had a .22 rifle as was walking rural land in Mississippi. Both cases were ruled accidents or suicides by authorities. In both cases the parents have persisted in their own investigations and have turned up links to organized drug smuggling, and in both cases the police appear to be somewhat involved in a cover-up (there is more evidence of this in the Ives and Henry case though). All three deaths appear to be a case of the kids being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The motive for murder in both cases appears to be the silence of a witness to high level drug smuggling.

I wonder if Ives' and Henry's parents have ever been in contact with Ladner's parents?

At any rate, a very interesting case and I am glad I got to see it before LRW takes the show off the air soon.
