For some time I have tried to get American Family Insurance to take another look at the claim they paid after Chad Swedberg was murdered. It has been hard and below is the letter I sent today to the CEO. If there is a local office in your town, please email this to them.
Ken called me on Sunday night and we talked about his week. His job is cleaning the corridors. He sounded upbeat, but I can hear how these days are hard in his voice. The weather is too bad to go outside so he is inside all the time. We talked about the rifle the police “found” in his barn after 3 searches of his property with dozens of cops looking. I have always found it very fishy they finally knew to lift of rafters of the barn to take what they would claim was the murder weapon.
The problem was that when the prosecutors put their own experts were sworn in under oath, they said the following:
1. They really could not determine exactly what caliber of weapon shot and killed Chad Swedberg.
2. The rifle they “found” in Ken’s barn could not be connected to the bullet fragments, so they told the jury to just believe they were right(they did).
My question is how did the rifle get up in the barn? The police found multiple prints on the rifle that included a partial of Ken’s palm. The other prints were ignored. Since the gun was obviously planted, who did it? Where did they obtain the gun?
I talked to Ken about his suspicions and promised to look into it. If the gun was planted and still wasn’t the murder weapon, where is the murder weapon now?
Stay tuned for more…..
Last Sunday night (1-6-3013), I talked to Ken on the phone from the prison he is being wrongfully incarcerated. He sounded upbeat and positive that he will eventually exonerated and returned to his life and family. We talked about a number of subjects, from the details of the morning Chad Swedberg was found dead, to the West Memphis 3, to the necklace he made me for Christmas.
Ken’s case is at the Supreme Court level again and he is hopeful that at least 4 of them have a conscience and can see his trial was a complete legal mess. The main two elephants in the room are the FACT that the prosecution had no evidence tying Ken to the murder. The second FACT was the lack of any real motive to commit such an act. Ken thinks we may know what their ruling is on a month or so.
Please don’t give up this fight. It could be any of us in the same situation if the police come with intimidation and false theories. What can you do? Share this blog with the complete facts on the actual police and court documents. Write Ken a letter and tell him you support his innocence. Ken’s family is still going through this every single day, just like he is. It’s good to pray, but better to ACT!
