As for using Mac, who else? He got away with several murders so what's a few more?
He's still gotten away with it. I think he was in it, but who fired which shots, that's up for grabs. I know Lee shot no rifle that day. But the other "confessors" I have questions and I have doubts, and they sway me every way. The one confession I am sure is false is Easterling. Perhaps, but some think he read a lot of books But Wallace, there's so much evidence of him, and so thanx for sharing your work with us.
Session about to expire

William Reymond. Posted January 14, Farmers had previously used irrigation pumps powered by electricity. Estes also sold anhydrous ammonia as a fertilizer. This was a great success and Estes soon became a wealthy businessman. Estes's business encountered problems when the Department of Agriculture began to control the production of cotton.
Allotments were issued telling the cotton farmers how much they could and could not plant. In Estes made contact with Lyndon B. Over the next couple of years Estes ran a vast scam getting federal agricultural subsidies. Marshall discovered that over a two year period, Estes had purchased 3, acres of cotton allotments from different farmers. Marshall wrote to his superiors in Washington on 31st August, , that: "The regulations should be strengthened to support our disapproval of every case of allotment transfers ". Dennison, to meet Marshall in Robertson County. At the meeting on 17th January, , Marshall told Dennison that Estes was clearly involved in a "scheme or device to buy allotments, and will not be approved, and prosecution will follow if this operation is ever used.
He assumed that Bille Sol Estes had friends in high places and that they wanted him removed from the field office in Robertson County. Marshall refused what he considered to be a bribe. A week after the meeting between Marshall and Dennison, A. Carter , a close aide to Lyndon B. Johnson , telling him about the problems that Marshall was causing the company.

No pictures were taken of the crime scene, no blood samples were taken of the stains on the truck the truck was washed and waxed the following day , and no check for fingerprints were made on the rifle or pickup. The undertaker, Manley Jones, also reported: "To me it looked like murder. I just do not believe a man could shoot himself like that. Marshall could have killed himself. Daddy had seen suicides before.
JPs depend on us and our judgments about such things. But in this case, Daddy said, Judge Farmer told him he was going to put suicide on the death certificate because the sheriff told him to. Sybil Marshall hired an attorney, W. Barron , in order to persuade the Robertson County authorities to change the ruling on Marshall's cause of death. Marshall to have taken his own life. Peoples also interviewed Nolan Griffin, a gas station attendant in Robertson County.

In early , Oscar Griffin Jr. Time Magazine reported that "He Billie Sol Estes considered dancing immoral, often delivered sermons as a Church of Christ lay preacher. But he ruthlessly ruined business competitors, practiced fraud and deceit on a massive scale, and even victimized Church of Christ schools that he was supposed to be helping as a fund raiser or financial adviser.
It was also disclosed by the Secretary of Agriculture, Orville L. Freeman , that Henry Marshall had been a key figure in the investigation into the illegal activities of Billie Sol Estes. As a result, the Robertson County grand jury ordered that the body of Marshall should be exhumed and an autopsy performed. After eight hours of examination, Dr. Joseph A. Jachimczyk confirmed that Marshall had not committed suicide. Jachimczyk also discovered a 15 percent carbon monoxide concentration in Marshall's body. Jachimczyk calculated that it could have been as high as 30 percent at the time of death.
On 4th April, , George Krutilek , Estes chief accountant, was found dead. Despite a severe bruise on Krutilek's head, the coroner decided that he had also committed suicide. The next day, Estes, and three business associates, were indicted by a federal grand jury on 57 counts of fraud. Two of these men, Harold Orr and Coleman Wade , later died in suspicious circumstances.

Williams, a former assistant to Henry Marshall, testified about the evidence the department acquired against Estes. Orville L. Freeman also admitted that Marshall was a man "who left this world under questioned circumstances.

However, further disclosures suggested that the Secretary of Agriculture, might be involved in the scam. Tucker, deputy director of the Agriculture Department's cotton division, on 1st August, , that he threatened to "embarrass the Kennedy administration if the investigation were not halted". Tucker went onto testify: "Estes stated that this pooled cotton allotment matter had caused the death of one person and then asked me if I knew Henry Marshall". As Tucker pointed out, this was six months before questions about Marshall's death had been raised publicly.
However, the cover-up continued. Tommy G. McWilliams, the FBI agent in charge of the investigation, came to the conclusion that Marshall had indeed committed suicide. He wrote: "My theory was that he shot himself and then realized he wasn't dead. McWilliams claimed that Marshall had used his shirt to make a hood over the exhaust pipe. Even J. Edgar Hoover was not impressed with this theory. He wrote on 21st May, "I just can't understand how one can fire five shots at himself. Jachimczyk also disagreed with the FBI report.
He believed that the bruise on Marshall's forehead had been caused by a "severe blow to the head". Jachimczyk also rejected the idea that Marshall had used his shirt as a hood. He pointed out that "if this were done, soot must have necessarily been found on the shirt; no such was found. The Robertson County grand jury continued to investigate the death of Henry Marshall.

McWilliams of the FBI also appeared before the grand jury and put forward the theory that Henry Wallace had committed suicide. Jachimczyk also testified that "if in fact this is a suicide, it is the most unusual one I have seen during the examination of approximately 15, deceased persons.
He posed for photographs with a. McClellan pointed out: "It doesn't take many deductions to come to the irrevocable conclusion that no man committed suicide by placing the rifle in that awkward position and then cocking it four times more. Despite the evidence presented by Jachimczyk, the grand jury agreed with McWilliams. It ruled that after considering all the known evidence, the jury considers it "inconclusive to substantiate a definite decision at this time, or to overrule any decision heretofore made.
Ralph McKinney blamed Pryse Metcalfe for this decision. Estes trial began in October John Cofer , who was also Lyndon Johnson's lawyer, refused to put Estes on the witness stand.
