The Franklin Coverup
In the US, the case that became known as the Franklin Coverup was explained in the documentary The Conspiracy of Silence. The documentary was pulled from The Discovery Channel in 1994, and an unedited version leaked in 1995.
This example establishes an early precedent where shadowy, unknown authorities suppressed evidence of establishment elite pedophilia, occasionally including Satanic or occult rituals, and an equally unknown, equally shadowy party would leak that suppressed evidence.
Multiple cases will follow below where attempts at suppression were foiled by leaks, probably by enraged law enforcement authorities who could not abide a successful coverup. In too many cases, however, such coverups held, and remain in place today.
The unedited version of The Conspiracy of Silence can be watched on YouTube.

The Franklin case took a predictable form, where an investigation into embezzlement by Mr. Lawrence “Larry” King metastasized into allegations about a “mind blowing” pedophilia ring of astounding proportions.
Omaha newspapers ran stories claiming that young boys from Boys Town, an orphanage connected to the local Catholic Archdiocese, were prostituted to local business leaders and eminent politicians day in Washington, DC.
The FBI dismissed the allegations, and anonymous sources leaked to the Lincoln Journal and the Omaha World-Herald that victims failed FBI polygraphs. Young girls who were foster children were also allegedly molested in parties in Washington.
Incredibly, the FBI seems integral to the coverup.
The leaks were denounced by State Senator Jerry Chizek as felonies. Mr. Larry Caradori, a retired state policeman, succeeded chief investigator Jerry Lowe of a Franklin scandal subcommittee, and soon developed a “leads list” of 271 involved personalities who were victims, perpetrators, or witnesses.
By 1990, Mr. Caradori warned the subcommittee that the FBI was purposefully executing a coverup. He was reluctant to submit his evidence to the subcommittee because the Nebraska State Patrol and the FBI were abusing it to sabotage his investigation.
Indeed, evidence about the Franklin trafficking network remains suppressed to this day, and the coverup is described as “immaculate,” in an example that we will see repeated in subsequent pedophile trafficking cases.
The videotapes of investigator Gary Caradori’s interviews of Franklin victims Alisha Owen, Tory Boner, Danny King and Paul Bonacci are now enshrined for perpetuity on archive.org.
The victims recounted, in sworn testimony, sadistic orgies with children organized by Larry King.
Mr. Caradori also interviewed a photographer named Rusty Nelson. Mr. Nelson allegedly photographed Larry King’s orgies, documenting the identities of molested children and politicians and other powerful figures who abused them.
The obvious purpose of such photos was blackmail.
Mr. Caradori flew his own single engined Piper Saratoga on 7 July 1990 to Chicago. He was accompanied by his 8 year old son, AJ. Mr. Caradori met Mr. Nelson at the All Star game, who handed him a package of incriminating photographs.
Mr. Caradori phoned Senator Schmit from Chicago, proclaiming “we got them by the shorthairs!” He spoke too soon.
Mr. Caradori’s Piper Saratoga crashed around 0200 hrs, 2AM, on 11 July 1990 in a cornfield near Ashton, IL, killing both Mr. Caradori and his 8 year old son. Reports stated that remnants of the plane were scattered 1,800 feet away from the fuselage, suggesting that the plane disintegrated in flight.
FBI agents soon marked off the crash site, and all evidence, including Mr. Caradori’s briefcase, and Mr. Nelson’s incriminating photographs, vanished into official custody, never to be seen again.
Again, the FBI was integral to the coverup.
Two days after the crash, FBI Special Agent Michael Mott and an unnamed colleague served a subpoena on Mr. Caradori’s grieving widow, a woman who had lost both a husband and a son in the crash, seizing all Franklin materials, effectively shutting down the investigation.
Senator Schmit submitted an affidavit, it was said, stating that he was forewarned that Mr. Caradori’s life was threatened. He also wrote a letter to the National Transportation Safety Board about the back seats of the Piper Saratoga, which vanished into the void of the coverup.
The Franklin coverup was abetted by The New York Times, which published in July, 1990, “Lurid reports of child sex abuse, drug trafficking, pornography and political intrigue that have held Omaha enthralled for nearly two years were a “carefully crafted hoax,” a county grand jury in Nebraska has concluded.”
Illustrating the exalted dimensions of the Franklin coverup, and the utter impunity exercised by its perpetrators, grand juries empaneled to develop the case twice ordered thousands of files sealed. Some of the victims were charged with perjury.
The complete text of The Franklin Coverup by John DeCamp is available for free download from the internet. This book remains the definitive study on the debacle.
|The Washington Times, June 29, 1989.|
Remember that the Franklin Coverup began with a front page article in The Washington Times, “Homosexual prostitution inquiry ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush,” detailing how a “homosexual prostitution ring is under investigation by federal and District authorities and includes among its clients key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, congressional aides and US and foreign businessmen with close social ties to Washington’s political elite.”
The article explains that one client was so well-connected that he arranged a tour of the White House in the middle of the night, at 1 AM, including two male prostitutes.
|The Washington Times, June 29, 1989.|
This article in The Washington Times was alleged to never really penetrate as there are rumors that military officers deployed throughout the district and purchased copies and stole others from kiosks across the city, impairing its distribution on the street.
But the internet never forgets.
The story of Lawrence “Larry” King and Boys Town became synonymous, another article states, “with the scandal involving child sex and drug abuse that officials in Lincoln, Nebraska were able to suppress and effectively cover up.”
The tale was ignored because children were the alleged victims, “many under the age of 10,” and they were “viciously raped by important men, so-called “pillars of their communities.”
“The coverup appears to involve the police and courts in Nebraska and also the FBI.”
“Victims who came forward were persecuted … A female victim who stuck to her story of years of rape and sex abuse at the hands of top officials in Lincoln, Nebraska was convicted of perjury and sentenced to 15 years in prison.”
The perjury conviction was a clear message, those close to the case said, that victims would pay dearly if they spoke of their past involvement with the Franklin child prostitution ring.
In the end, Larry King was convicted of embezzling more than $38 million from the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union, and he served 10 years in prison.
Mr. King was never tried or convicted on charges relating to child prostitution or child molestation. All other culprits apparently got away clean.
Mr. Nick Bryant, author of Americas Children: Triumph and Tragedy, and The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse, and Betrayal, later wrote in USA Today:
“Instead of indicting … alleged perpetrators … grand juries indicted the victims who would not recant their accounts of abuse on charges of perjury.”
“In one case, a 21 year old who had been abused since adolescence was indicted on eight counts of perjury by both state and federal grand juries.”
“Facing more than 300 years in prison, she still refused to recant. Her travesty of a trial resulted in a prison sentence of nine to 15 years. She spent nearly two years in solitary confinement.”
So the cover story of a hoax persists, despite incredible evidence that leaked out over the decades. The foundation stones of the coverup were laid down by The New York Times, with its insane “Omaha Grand Jury Sees Hoax in Lurid Tales,” and the Omaha World-Herald’s front page article, “Grand Jury Says Abuse Stories Were a “Carefully Crafted Hoax.”
Another foundation stone of the coverup was laid down by one of the grand juries, which stated, “We found no credible evidence of child sexual abuse, interstate transportation of minors, drug trafficking or participation in a pornography ring.”
The dimensions of the Franklin Coverup are now coming into focus, after decades, but the genesis of the coverup began with the august “Grey Lady” of American journalism, The New York Times, and we now perceive that the Times conspired in a policy that focuses on specific incidents of pedophilia and forbids speculation over a broader, more historical range. Unexplainably barred are questions about epidemic pedophilia, and PedoGate itself remains a “conspiracy theory.”
Lest we fall ourselves into the historical trap abetted by The New York Times and The Omaha World-Herald, never forget that the film A Conspiracy of Silence noted that “When the Nebraska legislature launched a probe into the affair, what initially looked like a financial swindle soon exploded into a startling tale of drugs, money laundering, and a nationwide child abuse ring.”
A “nationwide child abuse ring.”
Mr. DeCamp later explained in an interview that “there were lawsuits against the Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha, and Boys Town is part of the archdiocese.”
The interviewer then displayed a laser focus and he redirected us at the heart of the matter: “Your research has focused on Omaha, but this whole sex ring involving Larry King and Boys Town extends nationwide, all the way to Washington and involves the CIA and parts of the military.”
