This is absolutely untrue and the attempt to use it as a truth shows you how far Duffey will go beyond truth for her own purposes.

That is exactly what Freddie Hampton told us. Does Mr. Bottoms want to call me a liar too. Let's see -- their are many examples I could choose from but I'll pick something simple so that even he can understand it. How about the conversation Bottoms had with our webmaster. He stated that "The whole Mena affair is a hoax. And a smoke screen. And, Russell Welch and Bill Duncan both know this now. Sally Denton and Roger Morris now know this." So you tell me -- who is the one that will go beyond the truth for their own purposes?

May I remind everyone that the information regarding the Mena connection to the Death of My son was verified by the FBI's lead investigator before her investigation was shut down. Jean and I did not look for a Mena connection and did NOT welcome it. We knew it would only make things worse.
