Did Appearing on Television Cause a Man to Lose his Life?

Or did his past come back to kill him……

When Investigative Reporters Fox News 2 Reporter Rob Wolchek shows up at your place of business or residence, you’re in trouble.  Not since 60 Minute’s Mike Wallace has a reporter made so many scam artists, crooks, and thieves run from a television camera. The Detroit, Michigan area reporter has made a career out of exposing crooked business people, corrupt politicians and people behaving badly.   He features these wrongdoers on an episode called, “The Hall of Shame.”  The show had led to some people being convicted for their crimes and even being deported from the country.  But for two “Hall of Shame” recipients they would be victims of unsolved crimes.

Fox News 2 Detroit Reporter Rob Wolchek and the Hall of Shame

One of them was a man named Larry Jordan who owns an auto repair shop named Discount Auto Salvage.  The company had numerous complaints about shoddy repair work and not refunding money to customers as promised.  Jordan was jumped and seriously hurt by three masked individuals at his home early Wednesday morning on Shelby Creek Drive, in Shelby Township, Michigan on April 10, 2013.  His house was then ransacked by the assailants and the case is still not solved.  Police believe that it was a targeted attack but not due to him being on the show.

Murder suspect in Scam Artist homicide in Royal Oak, Michigan
Murder suspect in Scam Artist homicide in Royal Oak, Michigan

The second case involved a man named Gary Lupiloff who was a known scam artist.  He was an attorney who lost his license for cheating clients out of money. Rob Wolchek  featured this guy on his “Hall of Shame” episode  in 1999 which ended up getting Lupiloff prison time.  The former attorney would soon get out of prison, change his name and start a new business.  On the afternoon of July 13, 2010, someone killed Lupiloff with a rifle shot to the heart when he was outside his house on the phone in the 2700 block of Ardmore in the town of Royal Oak, Michigan.  Police strongly believe that this was a professional hit and there is a composite sketch of what the suspect looked like when it happened.   The suspect is described as being  a white male, 5 feet, 8 inches tall driving a black crossover vehicle or maybe a bicycle.

Law Enforcement does have a person of interest in this murder, a business partner of Lupiloff who had a $500,000 life insurance policy.  The individual in question has denied any responsibility for the murder.  If you have any information about this case please contact the Royal Oak police number is (248) 246-3500.

Was it a Robbery Gone Bad? Or Something more Sinister?

It was an early Saturday morning on January 21st, 1984  when nineteen year old Vernon Lomba Jr. was found dead in a snowbank by the side of the road on Elmwood Avenue in Cranston.  He was last seen by his mother on Friday and was headed to a bar named the “Sunburst Lounge” which was located on Elmwood Avenue. At first, Cranston police thought he was a victim of a hit and run incident from a motor vehicle due to a metal antennae from a vehicle found nearby.  However, an autopsy though would reveal the true manner and cause of death , Lomba had been brutally beaten to death. He expired from a blood clot due to being struck on the head and jaw. Police also took note that when he left his mother’s apartment he had over three hundred dollars in his wallet.  When his body was found, most of that money was missing.

Cranston Police  theorize that Lomba may have been a victim of a robbery. It is possible that someone noticed he had some substantial money at the bar and ambushed him outside as he walked home alone.  Lomba’s sisters and family are not sure if robbery is the motive for their brother’s murder though. They think it was a personal confrontation. The Sunburst Lounge is long gone and has been replaced with a bowling alley. For Vernon Lomba’s family, nothing can replace him. Someone knows a dark secret about what happened. Please call the Cranston Police Department if you have any information about this murder.  They can be reached at (401) 477-5000.

Who Were the Accomplices of a Real Life Doctor Evil

In May of 2007 a couple in West Hartford were during renovations in the basement of their home when they came upon a startling discovery. After peeling open a part of the wall they found a compartment that contained over 100 rolls of film and fifty thousand slides. The images were of child pornography. Police knew that a prior owner of the house, Doctor George Reardon had several accusations of child molestation leveled against him a decade ago. He was stripped of his right to practice medicine but charges were never filed because the statute of limitations had expired. What amazed Police was that there are an estimated count of several hundred victims (male and female) from the nineteen fifties to the early nineties. Reardon died in 1998. Below are three pictures of adult men that were seen in photos and slides of George Reardon. They are disturbing so caution.  The men are all believed to be filmed during the nineteen seventies while having sex with children. The men were believed to be in their thirties when these heinous acts occurred. It is not known if Reardon knew these men or just had these photos in his possession. If you know of anyone that was victimized by George Reardon or know these men, please contact the West Hartford Police department at 860-523-5203.

Reardon molested and sexually abused hundreds of male and female children in New York State and Connecticut from the nineteen fifties to the early nineties.

Reardon lived in West Hartford but it is believed that he may not have been the only pedophile preying on neighborhood children. He had a friend that was a Catholic Priest and spent much time with him.  Police have never identified this individual but it is possible that it could be retired Priest Cornelius T. Otero. Otero, is a former New York City Priest who is now deceased. He was convicted of child pornagraphy and has had several claims of child sexual abuse filed against him.  From 1988 to 1995, he worked at Saint Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut where he most likely knew and came into contact with Reardon. This article from the New York Post details the claims filed against Otero by one of his victims.  https://nypost.com/2018/08/25/alleged-abuse-victim-rejects-200k-payout-from-church-demands-justice/

Hartford Boy’s Murder a Mystery. Is there a Connection to the Atlanta Child Murders?

Nine year old Eugene Glenn was described as a mindful and respectful child who was living in the tough North End section of the city of Hartford. He and many of his fellow residents his age would often go exploring in abandoned buildings near where they lived. On August 9th, 1981, his parents reported him missing after he did not return home the night before at 177 Brook Street. He had last been seen in the area of Main and Canton Streets around 5 to 8 pm. After a search of the neighborhood, the boy who was three months away from his birthday was found strangled to death in the basement of an abandoned home at 134 Mather Street hours after he was reported missing. When found he was stripped down from the waist. Police have never stated though if Glen had been sexually abused by his killer. There have been suspects in this case but the murderer has never been brought to justice. A Hartford Courant article at the time noted the similarities of Eugene’s murder and that of several children that were victimized by a possible serial killer(s) in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Months earlier a person who fled to Hartford from Atlanta and was arrested. The arrested individual had ties to several of the murdered children.

Please see this video for the story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwXZlzYsde0&list=LL4PqWXRDOn-pposR5EW9pCw&index=427

Wayne Williams would end up being convicted for two of the murders and police would infer that Williams was responsible for most of the other murders. But as time goes by, it looks like that there were others involved.

If you have any information about who killed Eugene Glenn, please contact the Hartford Police Department at (860) 757-4000. All calls can remain confidential.
