KingCast Presents: "Circle of Stones" The True Story of New Hampshire's Native Son, Liko Kenney and Not the Ad Hominem Hate from Casey Sherman.

Circle of Stones website

Check my first public post about our registered screenplay from an award-winning writer.
Renner, Sherman, Stimpson.....Remember this folks..... All y'all who are trying to put movies out about the dirt going on in New Hampshire are in an interesting position:  You can't tell the story without telling the story of Liko Peter Kenney because he knew everything, and he knew why Norman Bruce McKay was indeed a dangerous man. 

And we and our agents of course are the only people who will ever be authorized by the Miller-Kenny family to tell Liko's story.

We know everything folks. 


Credit will go where credit is due.

Fred Murray will concur. Read the comments.

"The issues in your project are huge and impact of what you are doing will be felt everywhere: I spent over 10 years as a law enforcement official in different capacities and from my perspective, someone sworn to uphold the law is held to a higher and much different standard than those who are not. So when someone violates that Oath, that action is magnified because of who they are, what they do and what they have been charged to do. There is nothing more low-down than corrupt LEO."

I have known Mr. King for several years now and have witnessed his dedication to purpose involving law enforcement issues. In reviewing this project as a licensed private investigator I will be first in line at the box office to see the final film. I applaud him and anyone who has helped him to expose the Truth about this case.

Chris - Boisterous? You make it sound like Liko was cheering too loud at a high school football game.
He was in a suspicious place at a suspicious time (probable cause).
[KingCast note: WRONG ANSWER... see my response below]

Liko was ordered to remain in his vehicle, yet he got out and approached McKay's cruiser. Officers are trained to draw down on a suspect or person of interest in this situation to assess the threat. Attempting to flee the scene, resisting arrest, assault on a police officer, the list goes on & on here.

As a journalist, you have to be willing to look at the situation without bias, willing to accept fault on both sides.
 [KingCast note:  Oh says you, Casey, who said Liko Kenny "really wasn't a good kid at all."] 
You want to be taken seriously as a journalist right? Chris, you've got some damned good reporting on this case, man. Really, you have. But you don't want to cross the line between journalist & crusader. A word of advice, you want to tone down or simply eliminate the personal attacks on people like Ayotte, etc. Let the information you've uncovered do the talking for you.

It's tough, I know. I had to hold back on my personal feelings with the Strangler case because it would've jeopardized my credibility as a journalist. I simply let the evidence do the talking for me.
You've presented some fascinating stuff, don't let the temptation to settle personal scores turn your hard work into white noise.

All three men share differing amounts of blame for May 11, Liko probably the least amount as he was a bit of a troubled young man and an not a trained professional. McKay supposedly had the training, but he let a personal grudge cloud his judgment. Floyd as we all know is the ultimate wild card here. Do I believe he murdered Liko in cold blood? Yes. Should he be investigated more thoroughly? Yes. Did Ayotte's team withold information & evidence to protect McKay and Floyd? Absolutely.

I think Bad Blood outlined those positions clearly and I believe the movie will too.

As I stated, Liko got boisterous at Fox Hill Park but that does not change the FACT that 

1) Those Fox Hill arrests were ultimately found Unconstitutional because of lack of probable cause and blocking egress.
2) McKay did not have probable cause to keep Liko there.
3) McKay lied in his official report that he gave Liko his name, he did not, Liko surmised who he was.
4) Liko called for backup at Fox Hill Park, and then took an ass-whupping even though he was clearly not approaching McKay, Cox or Ball at the time, he was just STANDING THERE.

The fact that some LE would have arrested Liko doesn't render the Constitutional Deprivation moot, and Liko clearly stated to McKay "You cannot keep me here without good cause."

But McKay did not have good cause, just looking to fuck around with a Miller/Kenney, note his attitude when he found out who Liko was. All McKay had to do was run his license and tell him to move on. Or not, because there was no time limit at Fox Hill Park at the time.

So while you say he was a model of restraint, that's like saying Dr. Himmler was a model of restraint as he calmly ordered the Jews to the chambers. You can't be a jackass cop, then justify your jackassedness by doing it in a calm, cool and collected manner.

[Note to Casey and Director John Stimpson--I told John not for nothing dude but I've won criminal jury trials. I think I have a grasp of the legalities involved here. Plus Judge Cyr has offered substantial assistance, right.  From a July, 2017 Journal entry that Casey is trying to ignore in order to spin his story and place Liko Kenney in an actionable False Light]

I just pulled the files from District Court in 2002-2003 and they show that motions to suppress were sustained in all cases involving drug "busts" that came from Fox Hill Park because of the lack of probable cause starting in December, 2002, prior to Liko's arrest and beat-down in 2003. I'll try to scan the sustained Motions by tomorrow morning but contrary to what NH AG Kelly Ayotte told Attorney X, you CAN believe what you read in this blawg.


State v. Nathan Wright 03-CR-109
State v. William Miller 03-CR-012, 013, 029
State v. Kenney 03-CR-197

Liko's drug charges were nol-prosecuted as well, after Attorney Jamie Brooks filed his Motion to Suppress. [Liko had a bowl in the trunk but unlike the others he was not actually smoking or drinking, thus there was no "probable cause" Casey. Stand down, bro.

Which goes to show that the basis for Bruce McKay's affirmative statement to Liko Kenney "You're in a suspicious place at a suspicious time" was unsubstantiated.

Just as I've said all along, and as Liko told McKay "You have no right to keep me here without Good Cause."


Casey Sherman 

to me

The arrest video of Sarah certainly shows that McKay was aggressive.
I do believe that his first run-in with Liko clouded his judgment when it came to the fatal stop.
I think you'll agree that Liko was out of control at Fox Hill Park. We've both dealt with police plenty of times and regardless of why McKay stopped Liko, Liko shouldn't have escalated the situation. McKay surprisingly was a model of restraint here. I know plenty of cops that wouldn't have let Liko push the situation and instead would have arrested him right on the spot.

McKay didn't want this to play out again, which was why he took such an aggressive stance on May 11.
Bottom line though is that McKay was the professional, not Liko. McKay should have diffused the situation instead of escalating it the second time around. As I said, both were human and prone to such responses.

You also can't forget about the dereliction of duty -- Bruce McKay was known to have threatened even his own peers on the fire department, and Montminy did nothing.

The town is not a little off like Twin Peaks in the sense that you say it was. The Town is like Twin Peaks because it is geographically located between two mountain ranges and the police presence, large through Bruce McKay, was ominous.

The Townsfolk are going to have something to say about this.

Casey Sherman is a white male of privilege living down off the Cape. Approximately nine years ago he entered the Franconia Fray and authored a book without any involvement with Liko Kenney's parents. Unlike Christopher King he did not sue for missing government documents. Also unlike Mr. King, Mr. Sherman did not establish any real relationship with the core of the townspeople of Franconia and he rode Mr. King's research and voluminous journal postings about the case all the way to all of the critical acclaim he could muster.

Along the way he issued derogatory commentary about Liko Kenney and Mr. King, while issuing just enough praise of Mr. King to avoid the outright appearance of exploitation. He also uses his old pal and Rhode Island State Trooper Marc Lidsky to downplay the magnitude of the wrongs that Bruce McKay committed when he weaponized his Tahoe as a battering ram and Pepper-sprayed Liko Kenney without any warning whatsoever, in clear cut violation of Franconia town Standard Operating Procedures. That's a fact.
We hereby place Mr. Sherman on Actual Notice, by and through emails to Regan Communications Group and others (George K. Regan Jr. at gregan@regancomm.com)  that any disparagement will be addressed with impunity. See generally Cattell v. Laramie  Nos. 06-C-224, 06-C-225, August 27, 2007, 2007 WL 3236167 (N.H.Super.); Howard v. Antilla, 294 F.3d 244 (2002).
While Antilla was reversed on Appeal, we can take Casey Sherman to the threshold of Actual Malice because of his comments and opinion regarding Liko Kenney, i.e. "Not a very nice kid at all," coupled with the fact that he never even interviewed Liko's family whilst partnering up with a Law Enforcement Officer who failed to apply the known town SOP as published by Mr. King pursuant to his litigation against the Town.

Sherman also demanded $1,000.00 to speak to a classroom of the man who is now Police Chief of Somerset, MA. This, even though empirical evidence will show that Mr. King did the yeoman's work on this project for YEARS.
Mr. King shared his knowledge and work-product for free. Or more accurately, out of his own pocket:
Hey Chris,

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you, I'm still waiting on dates and confirmation from Dr. Petrosino.  The stumbling block is that Casey wants a speaking fee.  His fee is typically $1000 but he says he will do it for $500.  As you know this is a State school so money is not plentiful.  Dr. P is going to the Dean to see if the school has the money.  Also, Casey says he only speaks by himself and usually it is for one hour with questions and answers to follow.  That may be problematic.  In fact, we were offering to have the bookstore buy some of his books and sell them or even have a book signing.

The intent is to get the Moakley Center, which is a state of the art auditorium with a large capacity.  I think if we can't pay Casey that we could still have you and Brad come and do a question and answer.  I am assuming you have a presentation of some sort.  Talk to you soon.

Subject: Re: Hi George, how are things looking? Are you going tonight?

Well George I don't know that should keep us from presenting.

I will also email Casey and see if he would consider giving up a freebie but even if he doesn't, I think that if you bill a former Franconia Officer and Former AAG (both noted in the book) as coming to discuss ongoing investigations there will still be a large turnout.

What do you think?


Franconia Notch
Based on the true crime book, Bad Blood, by Casey Sherman.
When the press originally reported it, Liko Kenney was a wild kid who shot Lt. Bruce McKay in cold blood during a routine traffic stop in Franconia, NH. McKay was a father and a model law enforcement officer who was killed in the line of duty, and Greg Floyd, who witnessed McKay’s murder and subsequently killed Liko Kenney, was a hero.
But that was far from the truth. Unraveling the case, with the help of retired State Police Trooper, Samuel Forrest who was a first responder the night of the shootings and Liko Kenney’s former girlfriend Chrissy Ward, investigative reporter Cassidy Delay exposes the underbelly of the real Franconia, where right is wrong, good is evil, and the truth is hardly black and white.
Cassidy digs into the pasts of the three principals in this explosion of violence and uncovers a long running feud between a troubled teen and an over zealous flatlander who stuck to the letter of the law and ran rough-shod over the young people of Franconia. She also discovers a violent, drug induced and delusional “Good Samaritan” in Greg Floyd.
Cassidy turns the fabricated story, which was originally presented to the public, on its head and exposes the real corruption and deception that was manufactured for political gain. In doing so, she allows the process of healing to truly begin for the people of Franconia.......
………This gets interesting. In addition to his derogatory comments about Liko "Not a nice kid at all" and "troubled teen" (coupled with the false police analysis by Marc Lidsky) now Casey, who relied on Christopher King for information, apparently writes him out of the story. He has not contacted Mr. King on any of this movie effort. However, Mr. King was such an integral part of this story after Liko’s death that to make a movie without his presence is to engage in a work of fiction, and that carries with it a completely different set of legal implications.

Also how much information has Casey gleaned from my blog over the years. That information could most likely be used, legally. Ethically and morally, well.

Stay tuned.
