Wikipedia “Talk” Forum Says Other Girl At Wonderland
Much can be said about the “Wonderland Gang” Wikipedia page, and it’s mostly criticism (from me). I know they lurk here in the shadows, so maybe they will come clean and fix that page with more accurate info and remove the glamorous. I cannot find anything about J.H. Adams on the web or Amazon. Go figure. I guess the book is not available. Here we go again, LAPD and powerful politicians don’t want it published… right. Ha.
I think localarts has touched on this before…and was this girl THE Maggie Kaufmann’s friend? If so, she is dead now, according to the experts at Wikipedia. If Ron got her pregnant and was Annie’s lover, then why on Earth would he then invite Susan over to share the same space. Did the Gang have zero fidelity left in their hearts!!?? LOL
A friend of the Wonderland residents, she (the teen girl) was believed to have been assaulted at Nash’s residence by several male guests a few days before the robbery, thus giving Holmes and the Wonderland gang reason for the personal humiliation of Nash and his bodyguard. (Aces & Eights, 2007, The Other Hollywood, Legs McNeil “robbery done in a demeaning manner”, statement of Sharon Holmes in Wadd, attributed to John Holmes of “demeaning” way robbery carried out). Friends of the Wonderland residents speculated the baby was likely Ron Launius’s, not Holmes’s, accounting for Launius’s particular venomous attack on Nash during the robbery as alleged in a forthcoming bigraphy by author J.H. Adams who utilized crime scene reports and interviews for the forthcoming book.
Here’s the rest… check this out. The link to the discussion group is at the bottom. You may need a Wikipedia account to view the page, but that’s free so get one.
Here’s what they say:
If it still needs to be more specific, I will change it yet again. It is also widely believed, and widely diputed that a young teenaged girl known as Annie, another of Holmes underage lovers who was pregnant at this time, was present at the Wonderland murders, but hidden in a closet, protected by Holmes (interviews by JH Adams for the biography “Aces & Eights, 2007). A friend of the Wonderland residents, she was believed to have been assaulted at Nash’s residence by several male guests a few days before the robbery, thus giving Holmes and the Wonderland gang reason for the personal humiliation of Nash and his bodyguard. (Aces & Eights, 2007, The Other Hollywood, Legs McNeil “robbery done in a demeaning manner”, statement of Sharon Holmes in Wadd,attributed to John Holmes of “demeaning” way robbery carried out). Friends of the Wonderland residents speculated the baby was likely Ron Launius’s, not Holmes’s, accounting for Launius’s particular venomous attack on Nash during the robbery as alleged in a forthcoming bigraphy by author J.H. Adams who utilized crime scene reports and interviews for the forthcoming book.
According to neighbors who had been interviewed by the police, it has been alleged that the girl was already in the home before the murders, having been a visitor, and Holmes used her to open the door from the inside and unknowingly give easy access to the interior for the killers, the intent being to not to alert the sleeping occupants of the home (from copies of confidential police reports, Aces & Eights). The Wonderland gang were known to be armed and may have been on alert, anticipating some sort of revenge for the robbery (Porn King, 1998). They were also aware of a threat by a person known as “Sam”, a dealer/hit man to whom they owed a large amount of money according to a Hustler’s 1983 article and John Holmes’Autobiography “Porn King”. Autopsy reports and a video tape including actual crime scene footage was released along with the “WADD” documentary and shows the victims were beaten mercilessly and were barely recognizable. Annie was reportedly hidden by Holmes in the large walk-in closet in Ron Launius’s bedroom, where, as can be seen on the LAPD crime scene footage, is inches from where Susan was found. It was reported that Nash let Holmes remove the girl from harms way in exchange for Holmes getting her to open the door and his later cooperation in the form of silence about the events of that night. A detective who worked on the murder, Frank Tomlinson stated that Holmes said “if he cooperated someone he loved would die (The Other Hollywood, Wadd documentary). Nash reportedly gave Holmes several hundred dollars after the murders, a fact which Holmes reveals in his Autobigraphy “Porn King” and also in the book “The Other Hollywood” by Legs McNeil. Part of the money was used to send the girl back east, the rest to get Holmes and Dawn out of town as well. Police have never confirmed nor refuted this element of the story, perhaps to preserve the ongoing investigation or the safety of the girl. The extent of involment of this young girl has come under more serious scrutiny in recent years. According to newspaper articles and websites (Court TV.com, Morning Call.com and the Express-Times,1993). This same young girl was arrested 11 years after the Wonderland murders, accused of killing another young woman over a drug deal gone wrong. Newspapers at the time described the killing as “execution style” (“Police describe slaying as execution style” Express-Times, 1993). If convicted, she faced the death penalty (“Death penalty may be sought for Emmaus Woman in slaying” Morning-Call, 1993). She was acquitted, just as Holmes had been acquitted in the Wonderland killings (“Defendant acuitted of all charges in woman’s murder” Morning Call, 1994). In 2005 an Ohio newspaper ran an obituary for this girl, so the truth will likely never be known (Ancestry.com death notices, Columbus-Dipatch.com, 2005).
