Our private investigator, Matt Hale, has been digging deep into John’s case. He has found that no accelerants were tested at the time of the fire???? WTH?? If that’s true, if there were accelerants to be tested and it was not done, that is complete and total negligence on the part of the Dupage County Sheriff’s Dept., Fire Task Force. I’m dumbfounded by that, though based on the history of this case, I shouldn’t be surprised. Also, many people keep suggesting we put up another sign. WE HAVE PUT UP ANOTHER SIGN. It’s right in front of the old UCC building on County Farm Road. I know alot of you have suggested we do surveillance but that’s much easier said than done. The logistics involved are difficult, there are expenses, and at this point in time I doubt if anyone is stupid enough to mess with the sign especially in light of all the comments on this website that suggest we put up surveillance. I’m just happy to have John’s pictures up there so David Stubben can see them everytime he drives by. Oh yea, and Matt did a Freedom of Information Act request that was DENIED!!! How is that possible. The IL Attorney General’s Office already made them turn the documents over to me after I had to appeal and now they’re denying Matt????? Unflippinbelievable.
I think the most important thing that could happen here, is for David Stubben to take a lie detector test. All of this would go away for him once he passed the test. He should have done it 5 years ago and then we wouldn’t have wasted all this time focusing on him but because he has refused, oh and because he was the last guy to see John alive and lied about that, and because somehow John’s company truck got moved right into Dave Stubben’s normal parking spot on the night John disappeared, and because Dave was mad at John for financial reasons and because Dave said nothing wrong with the finances until the heat was turned up and then started making stuff up about John and the finances in June, and because the plastic wrap was missing from the office, and because the building burned down right after we put up the big banner that went missing at the same time, and because he rushed over to John’s house to “help Suzanne shovel snow” during a search, etc….we have focused on Dave. Dave has been cowardly in his refusal to talk to the police or the press. If you’ve got nothing to hide, you hide nothing. And what must his wife Donna think…and their kids? That Dave had nothing to do with this? C’mon. If he’s truly innocent, why then hasn’t he filed a libel suit against me? Not that I’ve ever come right out and said he’s the one…I’ve simply asked that he take the lie detector test so we can cross him off his list, but if I were him and even that was said, I think I’d file a libel suit. Of course, then we’d have to show he did in fact do this, in court, where we would be able to question him under oath in depositions and at trial and we would be able to do discovery and obtain all kinds of information, including information about his finances, the company’s finances, we’d be able to depose other witnesses including all those who work at UCC and so, so much more. The burden of proof in a civil case is much less stringent than in a criminal case. Think OJ. Being an attorney myself, I know these things.
