Dear Governor Brown,
We are pleased to present you with this PETITION affirming this statement:
The Calaveras County Sheriff’s findings in the deaths of Philip Marshall and his two teen-age kids were based largely on hearsay and innuendo rather than on solid forensic evidence. This suggests that other factors may have influenced the Sheriff’s investigation. In order that all unanswered questions be adequately addressed, we, the undersigned, demand a new, impartial and unbiased investigation into the deaths of Philip Marshall and his family.
In February of 2013, the Calaveras County Sheriff determined that Captain Philip Marshall shot his two teen-age kids, the family dog and then himself in a murder-suicide. However, Marshall’s friends, neighbors and investigative journalist Wayne Madsen believe that Marshall and his family were assassinated by others Marshall threatened to expose as conspirators in the terrorist attacks of September 11th. There are a number of reasons others may have wanted Phil Marshall silenced. Marshall had maintained relationships with colleagues from his days as a contract pilot for the CIA who had provided inside information published by Marshall in various books. For example, Marshall had written a book about Government sponsored drug smuggling, flying the notorious cocaine smuggler, Barry Alderman Seal. Later, based on his experience as a commercial airline pilot with over 15,000 hours flying heavy passenger jets, Marshall had also published two non-fiction books investigating those responsible for the support and training of the 9/11 terrorist pilots.
Attached were the signatures of 70 individuals who added their names over a period of ten days between July 10th and July 20th, 2014, as well as additional comments written by the petition signers themselves.
