Thanks for posting the link, Jay.

The newspaper write up is pretty close to what I'd been told...but more detailed.

How about a boob thread? Is that justifiable?


anastasia is trying to infect this serious thread with more boob-mania



...then again, that may stop LS from hunting us down and chopping us up

Jennie & Jay,

'Fall: The Rape and Murder of Innocence in a Small Town':
http://www.amazon.com/Fall-Rape-Murder-Innocence-Small/dp/0882822799

Amazon has photos of the bridge and the cliff and river on the site.

It is a sad and gruesome story. The book is well done. The guys who committed the crime were disgusting.

The climbing there is pretty good, too, wonderful cracks in a pretty setting with camping nearby.

All this of murderers and father-rapers and no talk of lawyers we have climbed with?

I appreciate you posting the Amazon link, Crock. I wasn't aware of the Franscell book.

I ordered a used copy. A frightful story... perhaps we have a desire to understand other humans at both their best and worst.

I would read that if I came across it, but I'm not sure I would pursue it. Grim story, though probably fascinating.

I've climbed with lawyers.

You just have to bear in mind that they are ectothermic.

Only yourself, a mod or an admin could delete your older posts.

Besides your claims, there is no evidense that Luke is anywhere other than the loony bin

Sewellymon - care to explain your "Sierra Madre based sheep buggers" remark earlier in the thread? As a life long resident of that town, i don't recall a Luke strong in town...and in a mile square town, you basically either know, or know of, everybody.

That Fremont Canyon story is really sad. Those animals should never get paroled.

I hope Kennedy was not the climber.

Kenny was a psycho but Luke was in another League.Fish and I used to scratch Kennys prize Vdub with the rivets of our Levis while looking him in the eye.Kenny wouldnt even think of saying anything.But if u looked in Lukes eyes ,u knew he´d kill u.Still I funked with him some.I´ve seen him since the Granny incident.So I cant help but wonder if its true.I kept walkin though he saluted me by name.Any sitings?

It is all muddy in my brain, but to the best of my knowledge:

Luke the Fluke, Granny in trunk, aka Luke Skywalker, line jugger, gear thief. All true.

Ken the psycho, psycho, got killed on the Peanut in Eldo when his rope cut at his waist. Cops were in the parking area looking for him in Eldo as he was wanted for killing a guy in the Buttermilk while bouldering. Shallow grave.

Bullwinkle caught a thief in camp 4.... can't remember the guys name, but he got thumped and litterally dragged through the mud all the way to the cops.

Fight at the base of the Zodiac... Yo hammer used on a guys back. They ended up throwing rocks at Ken the Psycho to keep him back. The guy who got hit with the hammer I can't remember his name, but it starts with an F?? Finnegan? Flarety? Fogerty? Anyway, it was all over fixed lines and gear at the top of the lines and bailing partners.

How does any of this tie into me?

Well..... Luke the Fluke lived out by us sheep buggerers with his Granny, and we have given him rides to and from the crags before. Mistake I tell you. I also went with Dick Cilley and Luke to do an FA in Josh (Cilleys masterpiece The Living Conjunction) and Luke was to bring the gear. He had it all sewn into his sport coat..... we did not have nearly enough. All my rack was in camp, hidden.... Luke goes back early to get more gear. When we all get back, all my rack is gone.... all of it. I think Sewellymon had a climbing class with Luke in it and Karl with a K!!! unreal!!!! Anyway, I get a call from the cops in Yosemite... seems that Luke had a ton of gear and I quote "wanted to be the best climber in the world..." In the stash was my entire rack. Got it back!!!! Mark your gear peoples!!!

Next nutcase: Ken the Psycho is hangin out at JT, as we all were.... He has already told a few people that he will kill them if they touch his car..... we might have been a bit tipsy, but we used to pee on the fender and sit on his car to get rise out of him. Anyway... all my rack goes missing again from camp. Weeks pass and I see Psycho Kenny climbing with one of my biners on his rack. Keen eye here boys.... so I confront him... he says some BS about how he found it etc... no way.... so I go back to his camp when he finishes climbing with a biner chain as a weapon..... he freaks and hops in his car and blow outta there for town... the cops are doing the loop so I send JT's finest to chase him down. They nab his ass and he sings like a canary... some guy he is staying with in town has a mountain of gear in his livingroom... all stolen from JT. I get all my rack back. After this is when he allegedly killed some dude in the Buttermilk.

Moral: always mark your gear and always file a report with the Tool-deJour™™™™ I've got two full racks returned to me. this way

As per my post a week ago, Luke is STILL in Patton.
It was Verified by the Forensic Psych Department at Patton.

Having lived in Sierra Madre from '81- '93 and '06- '11, it seemed the people in town you got to know best were the underemployed or the retirees lounging around downtown gabbing over endless cups of coffee. The rest of us just kind of went about our business..

Otis, dunno if you knew any of the Sierra Madre climbers from the late 70's (Moonie, Fish, The Driver, Karl Runde) but I recall them saying Luke was in their Boy Scout troop at some juncture. Bet he had those scary empty eyes even back then.

Oh- and Russ's post upthread-- never had Luke in the climbing class, but Karl with a K did enroll in the class we had at Cal State.

" i don't recall a Luke strong in town.."


Maybe because his last name was Stong, not Strong.


:)

It was good seeing you after all the years, at Perris Lake, Swelly!

Maybe they let him out to go bouldering? Make him promise to come back

no one ever gets out of Patton State Hospital, not even for a quick bouldering session


120 years ago Patton was built over an ancient Serrano Indian burial ground, so, naturally, the Indian spirits take up residence in the minds' of the psych inmates, making the inmates 100x more confused and dangerous!





Patton State Hospital, in a happier time...

thanks for creeping out my morning, gang. Remind me to quit teaching little kids the joy of torturing small animals.
