Law enforcement scrubbed author’s family death crime scene
February 13-14, 2013 — Murphys, California — WMR Special Report —
Here in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains that Mark Twain once temporarily called home, events with international intrigue are as rare as hens’ teeth. However, WMR has discovered that on the evening of February 2, the day the bodies of 9/11 investigator and author Philip Marshall and his 17-yeare ols son Alex and 14-yewar old daughter Macaila, along with their pet Shihtzu dog, were found in their home within a gated community in this remote California town, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department urged a neighbor of the family to arrange for a professional service to clean the residence.
The haste at which the Sheriff’s Department wanted a crime scene cleaned is surprising considering they had already hastily concluded that Marshall, a former CIA and DEA contract pilot during the Iran-contra scandal era of the 1980s and an associate of legendary CIA pilot-turned-DEA informant Barry Seal, shot his children and dog and then himself with a 9 mm Glock.
Seal was gunned down execution-style in 1986 in Baton Rouge before he was due to testify about the role that Vice President George H W Bush played in smuggling cocaine from Latin America into the United States in return for weapons shipments to the Nicaraguan contras and Colombian drug cartels.
