    Second Life

    Sentenced To Life For Drug Smuggling, George Martorano Spent Decades In Prison With No Hope For Release. Then John Flahive Answered His Call.

    By Alex Pickett

    Every holiday season, there's a tradition at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Central Florida, 20 miles south of Ocala. During the month of December, prison officials set up a large holiday backdrop painted with a Christmas tree, wreath and brick fireplace, partially concealing the grey cinderblock wall in a corner of the visiting room. Families and couples line up to have portraits taken with their incarcerated dads and husbands and sons. Smiles are plentiful, if a little hollow.

    On a cloudless afternoon in December 2006, two men -- one in a plaid shirt and blue jeans, the other in prison-issued olive drab -- walk up for their turn. John Flahive, 50, glares at the camera, fierce and determined; the inmate, 57-year-old George Martorano, shorter and slightly stooped from a hernia, looks ahead with the weariness of a man who has spent the last 23 years of his life in prison. The two clasp hands.

    For the other inmates and their families, the photos are an attempt to relive, if for just a few moments, past holidays spent together on the outside. But all Flahive and Martorano have ever known are the bonds forged in this sterile room, eating cheap food from the vending machines and sitting too long on uncomfortable chairs.

    Nancy Seaman#520695 NANCY ANN SEAMAN Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility 3201 Bemis Road
    Ypsilanti, MI 48197-0911


    Nancy Seaman was abused by her husband throughout their marriage. In 2004, she was in the process of divorce when he chased her through the house and tackled her in the garage. She reached for an ax and swung it, killing him. At trial, the expert witness, Lenore Walker, was shocked that Michigan law was so restrictive of expert testimony on domestic violence. Thus, jurors failed to understand the issues involved, essentially blaming Nancy Seaman for her own abuse. One stated: “She was not a meek, howling woman waiting for the next beating.” Judge MacDonald recognized his own, and the jury’s, failure to consider the fact that there was sufficient evidence of abuse, and later changed the conviction to second degree. However, the prosecutor appealed and the first degree conviction was reinstated.

    Rachel Wade (born on February 27, 1990) was convicted of murder in the second degree in the high-profile murder of Sarah Ludemann.Rachel Wade and Sarah Ludemann were romantic rivals. The rivalry began after Wade's breakup with Joshua Camacho. Camacho began seeing Ludemann, much to Wade's dislike. In the first six months Ludemann was with Josh, the police spoke to Ludemann six times regarding public confrontations with Camacho. She got into a verbal argument with the mother of Josh's child. Joshua punched Ludemann in the face, but Ludemann did not press charges.[1]
    Wade left insulting voicemails for Ludemann. Their rivalry became more volatile. They began to harass one another and, according to Wade, Sarah would show up to an Applebee's where Wade worked in order to taunt her. During one incident, Ludemann told police that Wade repeatedly called her cell phone and left threatening voicemails. Detectives admitted that Ludemann also made threats toward Wade. The rivalry would continue until Ludemann's death. Ludemann drove to where Wade was located and pulled Wade's hair. Wade's head was looking in the downward position and Wade flailed her arm with a knife. Ludemann was stabbed, resulting in her death.

    #941457 SUSAN GRUND / 2596 N Girls School Rd Indianapolis, IN 46214 Susan Grund

    Sep 06, 2012

    The Indiana Supreme Court has turned aside the appeal of convicted killer Susan Grund, ending her hopes of a shorter sentence.

    Grund, 53, is serving 60 years in the death of her husband, former Miami County Prosecutor James Grund.

    The Indiana Court of Appeals turned down her appeal in June, and last week, the Indiana Supreme Court declined to hear the case.

    James Grund was found dead of a single gunshot wound in August 1992, and a jury convicted Susan Grund of murder on March 16, 1994.

    She has maintained she didn’t kill her husband, however, and was featured in a 2010 prison interview for the Investigation Discovery channel, where she sat down with former FBI agent Candice DeLong.

    After the interview, DeLong, who became famous as the basis of the character Clarice Starling in the book and movie “The Silence of the Lambs,” pronounced Susan Grund a delusional narcissist and expressed deep skepticism about Grund’s recollection of events.

    In the appeal, Grund’s attorneys argued former Miami County Prosecutor Wilbur Siders had improper contact with jury members from Grund’s first trial, which ended in a mistrial after jurors were unable to reach a verdict.

    Siders acknowledged meeting with jury members from the first trial before the second trial, but first the trial court and then the appeals court found nothing improper in the contact. The Supreme Court’s decision not to grant a hearing means the earlier decisions will stand.

    According to prosecutors, Susan Grund was arrested in November 1992 after her sister, Darlene Worden, told detectives Susan Grund had confessed to shooting James Grund.

    According to family members, the confession was confirmed when Susan Grund’s mother later found that a large copper kettle, which she kept in her attic, had been filled with concrete.

    According to court records, the mother took the kettle to police in Peru, who broke open the concrete and found the murder weapon.

    The gun had been reported stolen about a month before the murder.

    Police suggested the Grunds’ marriage was in trouble, and that Susan Grund didn’t want a divorce.

    This was Susan Grund’s second attempt at appealing the conviction, which was upheld on direct appeal shortly after her trial.

    Leon Benson #995256,
    4490 Reformatory Rd.,Pendleton, IN, 46064

    My name is Leon Benson and I’m an innocent man, originally from Flint Michigan, in an Indiana prison. And I’m falling through the cracks of the U.S criminal justice system by the day, as I’m sincerely fighting to acquire immediate assistance to exoneration. I’ve been falsely imprisoned 8 years straight. But to give you a clearer understanding of why I stated I’m falling through the cracks of the system” I must present the following:
    FACTS OF THE CRIME: On August 8th, 1998, a white middle-class male name Kasey Schoen was shot and killed as he sat in his truck in the near downtown area of Indianapolis, Indiana. Although I was a block away, in an apartment building during the time of the crime, I was arrested and charged with homicide on August 14th, 1998 due to a black male named Donald Brooks telling the Indianapolis police dept that I was involved in the shooting ( later, at two trials, Brooks claimed not to remember anything) an eyewitness to the shooting, Christy Schmitt, a white female newspaper delivery person then mysteriously picked me from a photo- lineup on August 14, 1998, after my arrest, although, my natural appearance of a 5’10” light-complexioned black male contradicted what she told police on the scene, August 8th, 1998: while loading an outside newspaper vending box, she observed the crime from 50 yards away at night with her van’s headlights illuminating the scene. And described the shooter as a dark-complexioned, black male 20’s, 5’8” skinny built, wearing an all black t-shirt, black shoes, and black jogging pants with stripes down each leg” noted in police reports.
    However, on August 17th, 1998 another eyewitness, a black male Named Dakarai C. Fulton gave police a statement and positively identified another person as having committed the shooting. He described the shooter as wearing the exact clothing Schmitt described, but in addition he said he saw the shooter 2-3 hours earlier with a 380. Auto- handgun (the same gun type used to kill Kasey) in addition, on August 25th, 1998 according to Indiana’s crime stoppers records an anonymous caller claimed to know the shooter and that he used his girlfriends gun in the crime she reported stolen days before (police records confirm a report of a stolen 380. Auto-handgun). And on September 9th, 1998, a black male name Kenneth Brookings gave police a statement that his girlfriend Sheereta Smith told him who committed the shooting. (both these sources stated the same person as Fulton stated committed the crime) THE TRIALS: My trial lawyers never brought the witnesses forward to testify at either trial. And despite not presenting such exculpatory testimony, the first trial on May 24th-25th, 1999 ended in a hung jury: 6 not guilty, 5 guilty, 1 undecided. And this was largely due to Schmitt’s contradictory testimony; in both trials she stated I was a light complexioned black male sitting in court.
    Unfortunately, on the July 6th-8th, 1999 re-trial I was found guilty, despite the testimonies of Shirley Gaskin testifying that I was in an apartment building with her during the crime; Carol Knight testifying she saw me wearing blue jeans and a blue t-shirt with an emblem on it the night of the crime and; Cheryl King testifying that Schmitt told her on the crime scene that she couldn’t identify the shooter. Needless to say,

    Diane Borchardt loses her appeal for new trial

    Ex-teachers aide is serving life sentence for hiring 3 teens to kill her husband

    By Kevin Murphy - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    April 24, 1998

    A former teachers aide serving a life sentence for hiring three students to kill her estranged husband in 1994 is not entitled to a new trial, the state Court of Appeals ruled Thursday.

    Diane Borchardt, 48, was convicted of being party to the crime of first-degree intentional homicide and of using a child to commit a felony for the shotgun slaying of her husband, Ruben Borchardt, at their rural Jefferson home on Easter 1994.

    Diane Borchardt, who becomes eligible for parole in 2035, has maintained her innocence, although she didn't testify at trial. She was convicted of hiring Douglas Vest Jr., then 17, to commit the killing for $600 in cash, a ring and a promise of $20,000 from her husband's life insurance. Vest recruited Joshua Yanke, then 17, and Michael Maldonado, then 16, to assist in the slaying.

    The three, who had been students at Jefferson High School where Diane Borchardt worked, were convicted on homicide charges. Vest and Maldonado were sentenced to life in prison. Yanke testified against them and received an 18-year term.

    Diane Borchardt appealed the conviction, saying she had ineffective counsel, saying there were errors by the trial judge and alleging the abuse of a John Doe investigation in which witnesses testified in secret.

    The appeal claims District Attorney Linda Larson used a John Doe investigation to improperly obtain more information against Diane Borchardt and the three teens. A John Doe probe can be used to learn if uncharged individuals were involved in a crime or if the defendants can be charged in other crimes.

    However, the Court of Appeals panel based in Madison said the probe was properly conducted as it resulted in Shannon Johnson, of Waunakee, being charged but later dropped as a co-conspirator in the slaying.

    Diane Borchardt's attorney, Richard Auerbach, also unsuccessfully challenged as hearsay testimony from the couple's son about Ruben Borchardt's dying words: "I can't believe she would do this to me."

    Charles Borchardt, 16, testified that shots woke him up and that he found his father in a basement bedroom. His father first said two males had shot him and added that he believed his wife was involved, Charles Borchardt testified.

    The appeals court upheld Jefferson County Circuit Judge John Ullsvik's decision that the statements were an allowable exception to the hearsay rule.

    Auerbach said he and Diane Borchardt were disappointed with the decision and that they would seek to have the state Supreme Court review the case.

    Books and Movies

    Two fantastic books were written about murderess Joy Aylor:

    Open Secrets by Carlton Stower is a very (very) detailed book about Joy’s childhood, her marriage to Larry, Larry’s life and adulterous proclivities, and the men who were willing to risk so much for a woman.

    Author Ken Englade also wrote a book about Joy Aylor titled To Hatred Turned. Although a well-written book, it doesn’t offer as much detail as Stower’s book.

    Cybill Shepherd starred in the role of Joy in the movie Telling Secrets. Although only available on Region 2 DVD (non-US), it frequently reruns on the Lifetime Movie Network.

    PO BOX 8500
    FLORENCE, CO 81226 Juan García Ábrego is a former Mexican drug lord who started out his criminal career under the tutelage of his uncle Juan Nepomuceno Guerra, who is reported to be the former head of a criminal dynasty along the U.S.-Mexico border now called the Gulf Cartel.
    United States intelligence reports state Guerra reared his nephew on car theft before passing down his criminal enterprise.[1] The exact date of succession is unknown, however law enforcement officials recall an incident on January 27, 1987 when Tomás Morlet, former officer in an elite Mexican police force turned national trafficker, exchanged harsh words with García Ábrego and was later found, shot twice in the back in the doorway of Guerra's Piedras Negras Restaurant.[edit]

    Reports date his trafficking career beginning in the mid-1970s exporting marijuana from Mexico into the U.S. states of Texas, Louisiana and Florida. In the early 1980s he began incorporating cocaine into the cartel's trafficking operations.[2] García Ábrego is widely known for innovating Mexican trafficking operations, turning them from smugglers into suppliers. By renegotiating deals with the Cali Cartel, García Ábrego was able to secure 50% of every shipment out of Colombia as payment for delivery, instead of the $1,500 USD per kilo they were previously receiving.[2][3] The renegotiating however brought a price, the cartel would have to guarantee any shipment from Colombia to its destination. This change forced García Ábrego to begin stockpiling hundreds of tons of cocaine along Mexico's northern border in warehouses,[3] however it allowed him to set up his own distribution network and expand his political influence.[2] By the end of the 1980s and into the early 1990s it was estimated García Ábrego was smuggling over 300 metric tons per year across the US-Mexico border.[3]

    FLORENCE, CO 81226 Osiel Cárdenas Guillén (born May 18, 1967) is a former Mexican drug lord and the former leader of the Gulf Cartel (Spanish: Cártel del Golfo) and Los Zetas. Originally a mechanic in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, where he was born, he entered the Gulf Cartel by helping Juan García Abrego, the capo at the time; when García Ábrego was arrested in 1996, some infighting erupted within the cartel. Osiel Cárdenas eventually took control by killing his friend and contender Salvador Gómez, earning Cárdenas the nickname "El Mata Amigos" (The Friend-Killer).
    As confrontations with rival groups heated up, Osiel Cárdenas sought and recruited over 30 deserters of the Mexican Army's elite Grupo Aeromóvil de Fuerzas Especiales (GAFE) to form part of the cartel's armed wing.[2] Los Zetas, as they are known, served as the hired private mercenary army of the Gulf Cartel.
    After a shootout with the Mexican military in 2003, Osiel was arrested and imprisoned. In 2007 he was extradited to the U.S. and in 2010 he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for money laundering, drug trafficking, homicide, and for having threatened two U.S. federal agents in 1999.
    Osiel's brother, Mario Cárdenas Guillén, worked for the Gulf Cartel, as did another brother, Antonio Ezequiel Cárdenas Guillen, who was killed by Mexican Marines on November 5, 2010.

    FORT DIX, NJ 08640 USA George Jacob Jung (born August 6, 1942), nicknamed "Boston George", was a major player in the cocaine trade in the United States in the 1970s and early 1980s. Jung was a part of the Medellín Cartel, which was responsible for up to 89 percent of the cocaine smuggled into the United States.[1] He specialized in the smuggling of cocaine from Colombia on a large scale. His life story was portrayed in the 2001 film Blow, starring Johnny Depp.George Jung was born to Frederick, a German American, and Ermine (née O'Neill) Jung, in Boston, Massachusetts, then raised in Weymouth, Massachusetts.[2] Though Jung did not excel academically, he was a star football player and was described by his classmates as "a natural leader."[2] His first arrest was solicitation of prostitution to an undercover police officer. After graduating in 1961 from Weymouth High School, Jung went to the University of Southern Mississippi. He studied for a degree in advertising but never completed his studies.[2] Jung began recreationally using marijuana, selling a portion of everything he bought to break even.
    In 1967, after meeting with a childhood friend, Petey Eugene Sadler, Jung realized the enormous potential for profits by smuggling the cannabis he bought in California back to New England.[2] Jung initially had his stewardess girlfriend transport the drugs in her suitcases on flights.[2] In search of even greater profits, he expanded his operation to flying the drugs in from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico,[2] using airplanes stolen from private airports on Cape Cod[3] and professional pilots.[4] At the height of this enterprise, Jung and his associates were reportedly making $250,000 a month (equivalent to over $1.6 million today).[2] This ended in 1974, when Jung was arrested in Chicago for smuggling 660 pounds (300 kg) of marijuana. He had been staying at the Playboy Club, where he was to meet a connection who would pick up the marijuana. The connection was arrested for heroin smuggling, however, and informed the authorities about Jung to get a reduced sentence.[4] After arguing with the judge about the purpose of sending a man to prison "for crossing an imaginary line with a bunch of plants.

    EDGEFIELD, SC 29824 Miguel Angel Rodríguez Orejuela, born on August 15, 1943, in Mariquita, Tolima,[1][2] is a Colombian druglord, formerly one of the leaders of the Cali Cartel, based in the city of Cali. He is the younger brother of Gilberto Rodríguez Orejuela.The Rodríguez Orejuela brothers and José Santacruz Londoño formed the Cali cartel in the 1970s. They were primarily involved in marijuana trafficking. In the 1980s they branched out into cocaine trafficking. For a time the Cali Cartel supplied 70% of the United States and 90% of the European cocaine market.
    The Cali Cartel was less violent than its rival, the Medellín Cartel. While the Medellín Cartel was involved in a brutal campaign of violence against the Colombian government the Cali Cartel grew. The cartel was much more inclined toward bribery rather than violence. However, after the demise of the Medellín Cartel the Colombian authorities turned their attention to the Cali cartel. The police campaign against the cartel began in the summer of 1995.
