The Lawsuit That Could Sink the Clintons: A 30-Year Murder Cover-up Is Going to Court

A quick internet search for Linda Ives pulls up an intriguing email.

“I have never claimed any direct connection between Clinton and my son’s murder,” the email begins. “However, his fingerprints are all over the case.”

The contents of Ives’ email are far more explosive than anything you can find in the Podesta Files or the DNC leaks. But Ives isn’t a hacker or a DNC staffer. And she’s definitely not a Russian agent.

Linda Ives is an Arkansas mother who’s suing the United States government. If successful, her lawsuit will bring closure to a 30-year nightmare—and would likely incriminate several three-letter agencies in a massive murder cover-up.

And there is little doubt that Bill Clinton, the governor of Arkansas at the time of the murder, would also be implicated.

Kevin, Linda Ives’ 17-year-old son, was murdered in August 1987, but his killers were never brought to justice.

Multiple investigations were botched or derailed. Evidence and files pertaining to the case disappeared. Witnesses died before they were able to testify.

Multiple Freedom of Information requests to the FBI, CIA, Department of Justice and other agencies were chewed up and spit out by uncooperative bureaucracies.

After nearly thirty years of cover-ups and government stonewalling, Linda Ives is suing more than ten federal and state agencies for “full and unredacted reports” that could shed light on who killed her son.
Filed on August 24, 2016, twenty-nine years to the day when her son was murdered, her lawsuit is currently collecting dust on the judge’s desk.

A court date has been set for sometime in late November 2017, but a motion to dismiss filed by the government has been pending for more than six months.

Ives has never made her son’s unsolved murder into a vendetta against the Clintons. She has stated repeatedly that her only goal is to identify her son’s killers.

Nevertheless, in 1996, Clinton White House counsel Mark Fabiani accused Ives of spreading “conspiracy theories and innuendos” about Clinton—an episode detailed in Ives’ lawsuit.

Although not a defendant in the case, Bill Clinton’s name appears repeatedly in Ives’ suit.

‘Most of [the] public still does not understand that murder in politics is real’

Ives is now appealing to the internet for help—although it remains to be seen if her son’s case can attract as much attention as the mystery surrounding Seth Rich, the DNC staffer gunned down near his home in Northwest D.C., on July 10, 2016.

“Most of [the] public still does not understand that murder in politics is real,” Ives wrote on the popular internet message board 4chan. “To Seth Rich’s family: I am sorry for your loss. I have been there and I know your pain and frustration. I do not know what happened to Seth, but I do know what happened to my son and I know why justice never came.”

Ives added:
I let the investigators of the case do their job.  I trusted their expertise, experience, and motives. I didn’t find out till years later that the same people who were so kind to me, who were supporting me and reassuring me, were actually involved in covering up the murder of my son.  
I was told over and over again by them to not do or say anything publicly that would hurt the case. So even when my intuition told me that something was off, I held my tongue. 
I fear you might be victims to the same manipulative tactics that were used on me.
His name was Kevin Ives

On August 23, 1987, two teenage boys were stabbed and bludgeoned to death in a quiet suburb of Little Rock, Arkansas. Placed side by side on nearby railroad tracks, their bodies were later mutilated by a northbound Union Pacific train.

Investigators initially declared the deaths of Kevin Ives, 17, and Don Henry, 16, an accident. The medical examiner assigned to the case, Fahmy Malak, concluded that the two boys had smoked too much marijuana and had fallen asleep on the tracks.

According to Malak, Kevin and Don were in such a deep, marijuana-induced slumber that they were unable to hear the approaching train—or its horn.

After a massive public uproar—thanks largely to the efforts of Linda Ives—a grand jury was called to investigate the case. The bodies of the two boys were exhumed and a new autopsy was conducted, which revealed that Kevin and Don had been stabbed and bludgeoned before being placed on the tracks.

The grand jury concluded that the autopsy conducted by Malak was completely fraudulent.
Kevin and Don had been murdered.

As outraged citizens and newspaper editorials called for Fahmy Malak’s dismissal, then-governor of Arkansas Bill Clinton defended the disgraced medical examiner (Malak’s medical malfeasance was the result of “stress”, according to Clinton) and even recommended he receive a 41 percent pay raise.

And while Linda Ives worked tirelessly to bring her son’s killers to justice, Clinton was gearing up to become the next president of the United States.

Before launching his presidential campaign, Clinton participated in negotiations to create a new position for Malak in the Arkansas Department of Health—despite there being a government hiring freeze.

The story of “the boys on the track” (popularized in part by a book by the same name, written by Arkansas Times senior editor Mara Leveritt) is believed to be connected to a massive CIA-linked drug smuggling operation that was based in Mena, Arkansas.

Ives believes her son was murdered for wandering in on a drug drop—and that the 30-year cover-up involves the highest levels of government.
