In looking into how the craziness of the “official” state version of the events of July 9,2009 unfolded, one must look at the testimony of the investigators. In a sworn deposition of Chris Baggett and Tama Barber in 2010, these two investigators said that the 48 hours of the investigation, Justin Billings as well as other members of the Billings’ family were the prime suspects. The Escambia County Sheriff’s office had GSR on Justin Billings’s hands, albeit trace, it is still incriminating. They have an abandoned van at a weigh station in Alabama that appears to be the getaway vehicle.
Then a man name James Hartsfield comes forward to say that he thinks his van was used in the murders, as he saw it on TV. This leads to Terri Poff and then to Patrick Gonzalez Jr and Leonard Gonzalez Sr. When deputies showed up at Sr’s house, he had been up for 3 days cooking meth. He freaked out when there were deputies at his door as most men would. Then in the course of investigating Sr and his peculiar affect, another van is found on his property that also resembles the one at the weigh station. This is roughly 72 hours into the investigation.
According to a deposition by Tama Barber, a now newly promoted Sheriff’s department employee, the news outlets were telling a narrative and showing faces of people involved that the deputies had never seen. They had not heard the name “Gary Sumner”, “Frederick Thornton” or many of the others listed except for Jr and Sr. Because of the chaos and the number of hands of different law enforcement agencies, such as the DEA, Homeland Security, ATF, IRS and Santa Rosa Deputies, no one knew for sure who “leaked the narrative with pictures” but the investigators followed the trail of breadcrumbs and got 4 confessions. The confessions of 2 teenagers who almost immediately rolled, Wayne Coldiron and a very high Sr.
Here is the problem, what if someone with an interest in seeing how the pieces fell released the narrative with the bits of truth in scattered within? None of which included the bogus story Justin Billings gave to police about a Colorado gang hit nor the fact he had GSR without a plausible explanation of such. What about the fact the state had 2 red vans? One at the weigh station and one at Sr’s house. The one in Alabama disappears as soon as the narrative of what happened is released.
Before I proceed, let me quote an article from August, 2008, by Rick Outzen:
“We (David Morgan campaign) went into the election day knowing that we were going to win by 10 points or more,” David Craig interjects. The actual margin of victory was 13.4 percentage points, or 3,211 votes. In the 2004 Republican primary, McNesby beat Morgan by 34 points.
“We wanted to bury this guy (McNesby) with the truth,” adds Craig.”
The reason I shared is two fold. David Craig is now the communication director of the Sheriff’s department. He began this job in January of 2009. He also is more locally known for his show on BLAB-TV, “Blue Lights”, the Pensacola Cops show that incorporated Craig riding with Pensacola Police Department until he wasn’t allowed to do so anymore. There was a separation between he and the PPD. One can only speculate but he was persona non grata at the police station for some reason. So he hitched his wagon to the Sheriff’s office.
These are statements that shows the morality of Mr. Craig. He aligned and virtually guaranteed victory for Morgan. “We (David Morgan campaign) went into the election day knowing that we were going to win by 10 points or more.” The problem with this statement is that by the nature of elections, there is no way of “knowing” who will win especially to quote the “spread” (10 points). That tells me that it is a rigged vote. In other words, Craig makes things “happen” and as his website states, he is into “crisis management”. The exact phrasing goes something like this:
In addition to video and radio production we also offer services for political campaigns. Have a product, service or idea that you’d like to market? Call us for a free consultation. Have a crisis that you’d like to manage to it’s best possible conclusion? A political campaign that you’d like to see victorious? Think Reality News Network.
As a communications director for the Sheriff’s office, if a narrative came from Mr. Craig to the media on July 12, 2009, it would appear to be legitimate and credible. Mr. Craig also appears to hired jack of all trades. He is a freelance crisis manager. This means he fixes “situations” for clients for money. Could there be a client that had an interest to see this narrative known by news media, but not the actual investigators run its full course?
Absolutely. Anything for buck, right, Mr. Craig

What is david. Craigs original name. Is he from. New jersey?
Gary David Craig is his name. I don’t know if he’s from NJ. He’s lived in Pensacola since the early 1990’s.
And thank you!
Hmmmmmm, 13.4 percentage points leaves a large gap between 10 percentage points….D. Craigs first mistake. Admitting himself that Morgan would win by 10 percentage points and guaranteed it even before the election…Mr. Craigs second mistake. I say keep digging (conjuringjustice2013) there has to be a pony somewhere with that much horse poop. What I can’t hardly wait for is the big EXPLANATION OF JUSTIFICATION from Mr. Craig or Mr. Morgan when it come time for the Escambia County Sheriffs Department to have to EXPLAIN why none of the above mentioned never made its way to court room. Not to mention all the depositions that too never made their way to a court room or before a jury.
