Amongst the most egregious acts allegedly committed by the LVMPD
administration, is the murder and attempted cover-up of LVMPD Police
Officer Kevin Scott Dailey, 39, on December 5, 2007, near Lake Mead,
in Henderson, Nevada.
For those of you arriving late, Officer Kevin Scott Dailey’s severed
head was found by his co-workers near his burned-out vehicle, in
Henderson, Nevada after a month-long unreported AWOL from his duties
at the Clark County Detention Center, in December of 2007. No missing
person’s report was ever initiated by his supervisor or others; no
active missing person’s investigation was started as to his unknown
whereabouts; no information was generated by or to his co-workers, his
community, or anyone else, including the news media; nothing was ever
published, even after Officer Kevin Dailey’s severed head was found by
Not a bit of it was released to the public. The question we all need
to ask is WHY? Could it have been because there was a systematic gag
order put out by upper management of the LVMPD, to all involved, to
forever bury the circumstances, disappearance and grisly murder of
Officer Kevin Dailey? And, what would you do if you became aware of
this information and those circumstances?
“Outrageous” is just not enough of a descriptive word to describe this incident.
This all changed in June/July of 2013. Legal depositions taken with
regards to a 2011 federal lawsuit (Gordon Martines vs LVMPD, Sheriff
Douglas Gillespie, et al.) revealed, amongst several other criminal
offenses, that LVMPD Officer Kevin Dailey’s disappearance and murder
on December 5, 2007, was a hard-kept secret, which involved detectives
in the LVMPD Intel Section, the Russian Mafia, the Red Feather Café,
several LVMPD corrections officers, Officer Dailey’s sister, the HOA
Scandal, and a $3,000,000 earlier settlement.
Eyewitness testimony revealed the inner circumstances which led up to
the unreported disappearance and murder of Officer Dailey, including
the ordered and complicit cover-up of the entire incident by the LVMPD
Administration, and the allied complicit cover-up by the Henderson
Fortunately, the FBI is now investigating this incident and many other
incidents that came out of the legal depositions given by current and
former police officers.
The FBI became aware of this grisly beheading murder after I
immediately sent a letter to the U. S. Attorney, Daniel Bogden,
requesting his help in resolving this matter, along with also sending
a copy of the letter to Senator Harry Reid and Senator Dean Heller.
The FBI thereafter contacted me to obtain the legal depositions and
subsequently began their investigation. I sincerely hope the FBI
concludes their investigation and brings all those complicit in this
grisly murder to justice in a timely manner.
I have recently experienced another retaliatory act committed against
me by unknown suspects, whereby the brakeline on my vehicle was
punctured in three places, causing all loss of braking power, while en
route, on the freeway, to visit my elderly mother in San Diego.
It is no secret that since my unwarranted termination from employment
from the LVMPD on February 10, 2014 by Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, the
gag order that befalls every employee of the LVMPD has now been lifted
from me and now the Truth can be fully told. I am sure the haters will
now label me a disgruntled former employee, but they should also add
the descriptors disgusted, dismayed, disappointed, fed up, outraged,
infuriated, impatient, exasperated, and even resentful, but this is
all to be directed only at the toxic criminal element that has grossly
infected the police administration and the many fearful drone LVMPD
employees over the past several years.
Some of the other criminal acts allegedly committed by the LVMPD
Administration, which will eventually be exposed, are as follows: The
O. J. Simpson evidence cover-up; the HOA Scandal cover-up; the Erik
Scott, Costco, OIS evidence cover-up; the Travon Cole OIS cover-up;
the Stanley Gibson cover-up; the Swayve Lopez OIS cover-up; the
Mortensen/Brady OIS cover-up; the Javon Carter/David Roger/Roy Nelson
evidence cover-up; the Henry Prendes OIS cover-up; the Sylvester
Stallone molestation cover-up; the false traffic accident reports
corruption cover-up; the Phillip LeMenn jail-killing; the Hans Walter
murder/suicide cover-up; the Angela Petersen/CCSDPD fatal DUI
cover-up; etc, etc.
This is all very sad indeed, but the good news is that it can all be
corrected or at least resolved with the help of the RICO Act initiated
by the Feds, and with the help of a Constitutional Sheriff (that would
be me). The police department is in dire need of restoring Honor,
Integrity, Trust and Truth to its basic foundation, mission,
principles and morals.
With GOD’S help, a little luck, and your all important VOTE, we can
better this community.
