Gone in the NightSubmitted by nwind on Sat, 07/10/2010 - 13:38
Many of you have read Edgar Steele's articles on his Conspiracy Pen Pal site. He is not a particularly pleasant individual, but he is remarkably intelligent and a top flight lawyer and investigator. Recently he was investigating corruption that apparently went to high, now he has disappeard. The US Marshall's took him away but deny he is in custody. Below are letters he mangaged to exchange with a friend before being abruptly moved to an unknown location. Remember, if it can happen to him, it can happen to anyone!
To all concerned Americans,
For the record, I have been following the Edgar Steele fiasco since he was arrested on June 11, 2010 and kidnapped from his home in Sagle, Idaho.
For a mainstream canned report, here is a link - http://www.idahostatesman.com/2010/06/12/1227921/n-idaho-att...
Although I had a flurry of other activities I was committed to at the time, I managed to visit with his wife, Cyndi Steele, for two hours on June 21. I wrote Edgar Steele a letter on July 1, 2010 requesting that he call me collect. That never happened, nor the anticipated visit since I was told that he was allowed only one visitor a week and it is a big trip to make only to be turned down. Since I had another appointment in Spokane on July 7, I went to the Spokane County Jail and was told that he was in the custody of the U.S. Marshals, was not allowed visitors and could not even make a collect call. At this point I was concerned that he never received my letter. On the following day I heard from a friend who lives in Spokane and has tried diligently to visit Edgar Steele. When she went to the jail on July 8, she was told that he had been moved 30 min. ago to an undisclosed location. And then I received the following letter today, July 9. Following this letter is a letter I am sending to our Idaho state representatives that represent the people in the District where Edgar and Cyndi Steele once lived. Cyndi is so traumatized by this ordeal that she is no longer living in her home, and is in a safe house with friends -- the Steele's former home is in shambles from the raid with floor boards and walls ripped apart... and many of their valuables stolen.
Thank you for your letter.
All calls out are almost non-existent. I was looking forward to seeing you and Al yesterday. I suppose they just turned you away? I haven't had a single visitor here so far and only barely been allowed to see my public defender. I'm not allowed to call my lawyer even until next week.
I am in Max Security, full lockdown, solitary confinement. Worse even than the treatment accorded Matt Hale. Most of mail is returned to senders - usually because of their using letters instead of full first and last names in the review in the return address.
OK. I am innocent, for what that is worth in Amerika today. Here is what happened:
My hillbilly handyman stumbled across a stash of silver bullion in one of my outbuildings - then searched and found two others (@ $15,000 & $45,000 total). Knowing I would discover the theft & know it was him. He tried to kill me with two pipe bombs he placed on the cars he knew I drove. They both failed to go off. Cyndi left town with one before he removed it, which led tot he discovery of the car bomb on our Mitsubishi SUV.
This guy had offered to be a hit man before, more than once, but I dismissed him as a harmless buffoon. I had told him of the ADL & its hatred for me. This murder-for-hire plot is beyond my hillbilly hitman, so I assume he went to the ADL, which either fabricated tapes that he played for the FBI recorder or produced a mimic of me to make the tapes for the FBI on the spot. Regardless, I have been framed and set-up! BTW, the ADL was quoted extensively in the government's opening papers in court.
I haven't heard from my wife or son and fear they have been convinced by the U.S. Attorney Prosecutor of my guilt. I feel totally abandoned. What can you and others do? Ingri, I honestly don't know. Obviously, this is going to trial. I may well be convicted, which will be the same as a death sentence at this stage of my life. I am So depressed. I never expected them to come after me like this.
You may share this with others, even posting it on UNN and SF (With my address so they can write me - please write me - but tell them to put their full names and addresses [as a clear return address] on the envelopes).
[Note: at this time, we do not know his whereabouts. His address is/was - from the return on my envelope from him - Edgar Steele #361857 , Spokane County Jail, W. 1100 Mallon, Spokane, Wash. 99260-0320]
