CASE FILE #: 4593023XN
INVOLVING OFFICER: Officer #38739GPD, Sgt. Frank Notaro
RE: Info on Richard Lukas Gould
FROM: Melvin R. Finnigity
DATE: May 19
Information on shooting death of Richard Lukas Gould on the night of May 14 by Sergeant Frank Notaro.
I've made contact with some of our sources within the District Attorney's Office.
Richard Lukas Gould is considered by the District Attorney's office to be the "Jackson Park Rapist" who terrorized the neighborhood in and around aforementioned park for the last three years.
Investigation of Richard Lukas Gould began early last year out of the Downtown Special Crimes Unit. I've attached a document slipped to me by an informant inside the unit. Eyewitness testified Gould as taking part in an assault on a woman in the area, and his DNA was a match for blood and semen found at crime scenes.
Charges were set to be filed in May. However, evidence emerged of unlawful conduct on the part of initial investigator which queered eyewitness identification. DA office determined that the entire case would be thrown out. In order to spare department embarrassment, DA dropped the case. DSCU was furious.
In addition to some of the peculiarities discovered already regarding Notaro's story, the identity of the shooting victim merits more investigation in this officer's opinion.
DNA Analysis of Fluids Found From Crime Scene #4E328923
DNA samples from:
- Crime Scene
- Samuel Evers Jeremynsk
- Richard Lukas Gould
- Jeremy Mered Slabotnik
It is very clear from the DNA image that Richard Lukas Gould is not a match for the rape case. Slabotnik's DNA is a match if the image of the lane is flipped.
The main theory about this information is that Slabotnik is the rapist and is connected with the Chechen. The Chechens paid off a lab tech to clear Slabotnik, so the DNA evidence was tampered with and the report was written so that Gould was matched to the rape. Notaro, whose wife was a rape victim, finds out Gould was allegedly the rapist and kills him. He goes to Rossi for help, who covers it up and gets the investigation shut down.
However, when the investigation was in danger of being re-opened, it could have potentially uncovered all sorts of mob and Chechen ties to the Gotham police and political race.
