IWJ note: We first learned of the Bellecourt/spade scenario during the trial. With this email from Willis Kills the spade comes out into the open. No changes have been made to the Kills mail.
From: Willis Kills
I have known this information for months as I seen it with my own eyes and it has been on my mind since that time. Now I'm thinking I must share it with the people so the people will know and can think on it.
I was at Arlo Looking Clouds trial. I was at that federal court building there in Rapid City that first morning. It was then that I seen Vernon Bellecourt going into the FBI building across the street. This was that first morning pretty early. I went over there like I was going to that little post office in same building and I seen Bellecourt go up to the feds in the elevator.
Bellecourt had some kind of package. I went back over to the court building and waited to see how long he would be gone in there. Bellecourt come out a little while later. Not too long but long enough. I asked one of my relatives who was hanging with Vernon Bellecourt what the hell Bellecourt was doing going over to the FBIs when Arlos trial was just getting going and my relative said that Bellecourt was scared! He says Bellecourt was making out that he had got threats and someone sent him a spade so he went running to tell the FBIs and it was a spade in the package! Who the hell would believe that bullshit I says to my relative.
I got uneasy about it. I seen Bellecourt go over there to the FBIs and it seems not right to me and so I share this thinking this:
