    Something interesting is ICE Project Shadow Fire which ran for 5 weeks concluding March 21, 2016.

    https://www.ice.gov/news/releases/ice-arrests-more-1100-operation-targeting-gangs

    We know Biddle fled to California and it's interesting the a majority of the ShadowFire busts took place in Cali and a total of 1,115 arrests were made across the country. Some of those arrested were just outside Eapmon's area.

    http://www.kentucky.com/news/local/counties/woodford-county/article73163762.html

    Hearing about the judge sealed envelope on Eapmon to testify, where instead Biddle later pled guilty and testified himself, just made me wonder if Biddle testified because there was something more that Eapmon knew and he didn't want it out.

    Pure speculation at this time that ShadowFire could all be related, but the timing of the Eapmon and even possibly Rhoden murders made me wonder if someone gave/or was rumored to give information to FBI or Homeland Security.

    Recently revealed information is helpful.

    Seems to be no quibbling that Eapmon, out on parole for heading an Oxycontin crew, was back in the drug business when he was killed.

    Being that his past thing was opiates, most likely he was dealing in opiates again.

    The time period from 2010-2015 included a national effort to hammer the pill mill supply of pharmaceutical opiates. Kentucky and southern Ohio saw very active enforcement efforts.

    The resulting almost-a-vacuum supply has naturally resulted in continually increasing supply of black tar heroin from Mexico, "fake" pharma knockoffs from Mexico (& some from China), and most recently the introduction of fentanyl (manufactured in Mexico & China.)

    At some point, Eapmon's post-release supply of opiates & the associated monies passed through the hands of a cartel based in Mexico.

    Eapmon's direct source could have been working directly for a cartel or possibly one or more steps removed. If he was dealing in big volume, the more likelihood of direct sourcing from cartel.

    In the end, it goes there.

    Hard to look at Eapmon and not wonder how far his cooperation went and if it was ongoing.

    Anyone doing business with him could have reason to eyeball him as someone talking.

    So it seems a reasonable possibility that he was killed because he was talking or at least suspected of continued cooperation.

    Feds in the form of HSI/NGU involved in this investigation?

    Probably all over it and the players mostly known to investigators.

    The thing of value taken from the home.

    Drugs? $ from drugs? Documents? Or what?

    Robbery as a primary motive? Secondary? Or sharing equal billing with something like silencing him?

    Interesting that law enforcement appears to know exactly what was taken.

    The person or persons somewhat trusted by Eapmon as they were familiar with his home.

    Possibly someone he did business with.

    What street gangs was he affiliated/associated with?

    Who and what are his prison associations?

    Yeah. No shortage of folks who might have reason to want him dead.

    Single shots each to the head. Confident. Possibly experienced.

    Relatively silent. Possibly a .22 caliber handgun. Relatively quiet, but deadly. Potentially muffled with a pillow or other means?

    If I google on Charles or James Eapmon there appears a pic which shows the main person HG (died 2012) and around her a few persons. One of them (to HG's left) resembles the 13yo murder victim Libby, Delphi IN, whose familiar connections are reaching out to KY. Now I'm very confused. 2012 Libby was too young to be the girl on the photo but who is it who looks exactly like her? To me a little bit odd. :thinking:

    Sounds like the three men possibly had some sort of business falling out.
