Wonder why, 10 April 2005
Author: 4cshore from United States

I was wondering why James Ellroy never got in contact with me? I went to college with Bob - worked next door to him in the River Quey - was over at his house many times.

We bought and traded many esoteric collectibles - I was the one that the Police had come in and appraise the collection on the second floor gallery - warning them that if he could sell them his collection it would be worth well over $300,000 and he could afford to hire a good lawyer - that's when they claimed it as part of the crime.

Bob even borrowed my chainsaw -Euh- glad I never got it back.

The interesting fact the Judge Charlie that arranged him and the Detective Chester that was #2 in the investigation and Bob were at my wedding - I have a photo of them all in one photo together, this was less than a year before he was caught.

I was even the one that Phil Whitt from channel 4 interviewed - they incorrectly stated that I was Berdellas BEST FRIEND - Son of a B*t*ch lied to me. Ever notice how big Phil's butt is - it's really really big looks deformed.

Well I was never contacted so I wonder how much research James Ellroy really put into this. Guess I'll have to see it.

I still have the worry beads that are made for human bone that Bob gave me for Christmas one year - said they were Tibetian?
