    AR - The Train Deaths - Don Henry, 16, & Kevin Ives, 17, Little Rock, 1987

    Despite a FBI investigation and tons of press, this case has never been resolved. The boys were out hunting and turned up dead on train tracks.

    A lot has been written about the two boys, Don Henry and Kevin Ives. The deaths were big news in Arkansas and still are the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation after all these years.

    A northbound train was blazing along through the night full bore when the engineer spotted the bodies of two boys laying across the tracks. The train was not able to stop. The two deaths were reported as a double suicide even though the boys were happy, healthy and had never mentioned suicide before to anyone who knew them. Suicide was changed to accidental death by infamous Arkansas State Medical Examiner Dr. Fahmy Malak.
    ............
    The second autopsy showed that Kevin's skull had been crushed and that his friend Don had been stabbed in the back hours before the train ran over their bodies. A second grand jury concluded that both boys were obviously murdered and that their deaths were tied to the drug traffic in Saline County, Arkansas.

    Days after the area had supposedly been scoured for evidence relatives found one of the boys' feet and some gold chains that the police didn't find. Dr. Malak's autopsy report didn't even mention that one of the boys had a foot missing. Much of the evidence surrounding the case wound up missing also, including crime scene photos.

    Dr. Malak's rulings on mysterious deaths in Arkansas have come under close scrutiny many times. In May of 1992 the Los Angeles Times ran a cover story on Malak's incompetence as a medical examiner. The Times cited over 20 other cases that were grossly bungled. A 20/20 television special also covered the story.

    Some of Malak's well known rulings include the 1985 murder of Raymond Albright who was shot 5 times with a Colt .45, which Malak ruled a suicide. In the case of James Milam, who was decapitated, Malak had ruled that the victim died of natural causes!

    Thats unbeliveable. Decapitation ruled as natural causes? I've never heard of anyone anywhere whos head just fell off as if it were a part of life and happened to people everyday.

    This story disgusted and angered me. I am so tired of seeing stories like this. Why does it not surprise me that the Clinton's are involved in yet another shady outfit? I hope someday soon we can find out what really happened and Don and kevin will get their justice.

    There was a documentary made about this case and a book. It blows my mind that two young boys are dead and their families never received justice.

    He's long gone, but his *findings* live on. Rumor had it that he gave a finding that was very favorable to Bill Clinton's mother and that's why he kept his position for so long.

    Justice for Ives/Henry. Any new news on the case. I've been looking on line and can't seem to find anything.

    Kevin Ives' mother tries to keep an investigation going despite the case being prematurely closed and nobody wanting to cooperate/talk:

    I've always thought, given the extent of the "bigger picture" these murders are a part of, that there probably won't be any real answers until everyone who was involved is dead.

    I wonder if Tom Cruise's new movie will cover them? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3532216/

    Does seem like a horrible case of wrong time wrong place. Poor boys

    Linda Ives has filed an FOIA suit against practically everyone. It should be interesting to see what comes of it.
