Smiley screwed up

It's a tragic tale police in America's northland have told to hundreds of heartbroken parents of missing young males many times throughout these past fifteen years: Their sons were drinking too much, completely lost their wits from inebriation, decided to go for a wintery swim in the nearby body of water to wear it off, and perished in the process.

That's what the parents of missing 23-year-old Walton Matthew Ward had to hear from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department in late October 2012.

There was just one problem with IMPD's story though: Matt Ward wasn't drunk.

BLOOD ALCOHOL

  1. here is one that might be worth looking into. James Richardson.

  2. Hey, Tennessee, welcome back. Hadn't heard about the Richardson case, tbh, plus I can't find a lot of updates past the determination that it was a homicide.

    It sounds like there was trauma to the body...but I can't figure out what or even if the victim 'drowned'. Do you know the cause of death listed for this young man, and also what was the manner? Seems investigators should have released this info by now, as his body was discovered late last March.

    Speaking of last March, there are rumors now in the Tupper Lake area that 18-year-old Colin Gillis may have been one of serial killer Israel Keyes' last victims. Keyes owned rural property in that area and even robbed a bank in the town of Tupper Lake in 2009. No sign as yet of the Gillis boy, of course, and police say there is no Gillis/Keyes connection that they're aware of.

    Let me know what other data you've collected for Richardson and how you interpret it so far.

    1. I am his sister. It was ruled "accidental drowning" with no suspected foul play. BULLSHIT. Why did he attempt a 1-second 911 call from his cell phone at 1:30am right before he was murdered. The Indianapolis dropped his case and are no longer looking, despite Joshua Swalls being found a few weeks later in the same way only 1/4mile from where they found Walton's body in the White River.

    2. Stacy, the bouncer who dragged Matt ouside of Landsharks and beat him is his killer--no doubt--have you gotten this man's name, rank and badge number yet?

      IMPD is not going to just hand him over voluntarily, even if guilty of manslaughter, because there is a 99.9999999 percent chance that bouncer was in fact an off duty cop moonlighting as security for the bar.

      So you, your mother, your father, will all have to be fearless now and simply get the felonious creep's info. Thereafter just contact the FBI with it. The Bureau is already looking into these suspicous drownings now.

      Otherwise, if enough time passes in this stalemate between your family and the Indy metro police, then eventually that murderous sociopath will feel emboldened to return to his after hours gig once more.

      And then he will kill somebody else's brother, son, husband, cousin, nephew or lover.

      There is no statute of limitations on murder...get that killer's name, either from Landshark's or the IMPD themselves....then contact the FBI once you've got it so they can confirm he's the right man...and arrest the SOB.

      You're not going to stumble into Justice for Matt by accident, and it isn't going to merely fall into your lap either. You've got to clear your mind of everything but the salient facts here, steel your resolve so it's absolutely piercing and unbendable, and fight like hell.

      Your friend--

    3. E.R. That murdering bouncer left town never to be seen or heard from again, as did the Barowner of Peppers who had owned that bar for over 20 years and was all over the news helping my stepmother, Julie. Someone ran them out of town. And if that bouncer truly worked there,...wouldn't he hada W2 or other records of where he could be located? The police never even interviewed him. How the hell could they close this case?!?!?!? And to think poor Joshua Swalls was found the same way only 3 weeks later less than 1/4. I have no more sense of safety in this world or any faith in our legal systems. Scares me to death to have children of my own. RIP Walton.

    4. Okay, Staci, I have given this much thought. Here is the three-step strategy for finally getting Matt the justice he deserves:

      1. Ask for everything the cops have told you to be confirmed now IN WRITING, even if you have to type it yourself and send it certified mail with return postage so they sign the document.

      In this succinctly worded letter you're going to demand they confirm that they said: Matt "was over intoxicated"; he "fell into the river and accidentally drowned"; they "don't know what his [low] BAC readings mean"; the 911 call he placed during a physical altercation with a bar bouncer just before he disappeared and drowned "was a misdial"; the call "only lasted a second"; they "didn't question the bar bouncer" at any point in their investigation; and said bar bouncer "has since left town".

      2. Forward that signed letter to the FBI and/or the Department of Justice with a complaint that your brother was murdered and dumped into the river to make it look like he drowned. Send that as well as to all the mainstream media outlets and to the Nancy Grace crime show, etc.

      3. Then sit back and watch these lying thugs start to squirm in anticipation of their inevitable and highly televised perp walks.

  3. They keep a lot to themselves. I was personally told by a detective a case was suspicious though the media was never told this.

    1. the media is now too scared to do any stories because their ratings always go down after featuring one of the 200+ stories of these young men being taken out by bad cops and murderous bouncers. May they rot in hell.

  4. Sheriff Arnott says it's not clear how long the body had been in the water. He's not sure if the body was clothed, but it did have wrapping of some sort. There were also other objects located that make this investigation suspicious.

    KOLR/KOZL spoke with one man who was riding through there on horseback. He believes he saw the body along the shoreline three days ago, but at the time just thought it was some trash wrapped in plastic.

    1. Walton was not wrapped in plastic,...just debris collected from being in the water for 10 days.

    2. The police nor FBI is helping in any way, shape or form. Despite 2 young men being found under 1 mile apart. IMPD and those involved will rot in hell for taking the lives of these beloved young men who did not deserve this type of death/murder. they will answer to the God that will sending them to rot in hell.

  5. OK, not drowned but dumped they think, although like Dailey's similar case in Boston, nothing else is available at this time.

    The problem with these "water fatalities" where there are indications of foul play is that rulings concerning the actual manners of death are perpetually delayed, and LE will always insist they're "still investigating" them when in reality they are not. Instead, they appear to hope the cases solve themselves...or fall under the radar.

    Hey, did you hear they finally found Michael Jansson last month? His bones anyway, which is all one might reasonably expect by now since he's been missing for over a decade.

    Jannson's mother is still waiting for official confirmation, but it's pretty much a surety because the vehicle divers pulled out of the river is the same one he was driving the night the bouncers chucked him out of the now-defunct Biology Bar.

    Astounding development after all these years.

    E.R.

  6. we believe he was murdered on land and dumped in the White River/Broad Ripple Canal.

  7. Someone please LISTEN and PREVENT other young men being murdered. This is MADNESS. The IMPD offers no help on either Joshua Swalls'(RIP) murder, ruled 'accidental drowning' and Walton Matthew Ward (RIP), ruled 'accidental drowning' and both cases closed with no further investigation. Try being the parent being told their sons decided to go for a joy swim in the middle of winter. The bouncer at Landsharks was never investigated nor questioned and now cannot be found. And the IMPD closes this case. Broad Ripple Indiana has a SERIAL KILLER and the IMPD closes these cases? Hmmmmmmm....

  8. Anyone know this 'BOUNCER' or his whereabouts? He is now missing as is the prior owner of Broad Ripple's bar called PEPPERS. These are the last people to see Walton Matthew Ward alive after being discovered by construction workers in the White River of Indianapolis on October 22, 2013. On November 23, which would have been Walton Matthew Ward's 23rd birthday, Joshua Swalls (RIP) was found in an retention pond 1/4 mile where Walton Matthew Ward (RIP) was discovered. And the police had Diving Teams search this same retention pond without success in finding Joshua Swalls' body (RIP). And Josh's body was there the whole time?????Hmmmmmm....Does anyone out there care? Because the IMPD doesn't seem to and there are 200+ other families crying for their lost sons, grandsons, brothers, boyfriends, best friends. Yet, it has been happening for 15 years and continues to happen every single winter all throughout the U.S. And the police nor FBI give a damn. Hmmmmm,...sounds like murder and cover ups to me. But I am not that smart.
