Bobby J Blythe / Willie J Dennis : Day 5
NOTE: Go to Justice4KungFuGuy for the latest news on this story.
Slowly, slowly to catch a monkey – or so the saying goes. Day 3 into the investigation of the brutal video filmed in Dumfries, VA of Willie J Dennis beating a disabled man to a pulp in Bobby J Blythe’s karate dojo.
Inside Nova, Northern Virginia’s online newspaper, has posted an article on the case today.
Bullshido are continuing to investigate the case and are currently cross-referencing public records on hospital admissions, incarcerations and taking the Sherlock Holmes approach of ruling out the impossible. Bobby Joe Blythe has gone into hiding it seems as nobody has been able to raise him on the phone or in-person. He deleted his online accounts quickly after the incident started to go viral but nobody has yet managed to get his take on the matter. I can only assume that law enforcement haven’t tracked him down either.
The 25 years of time are making the investigation difficult but I don’t think anybody is going to rest until KFG (Kung Fu Guy) has been given a name. Even if Dumfries police only have a few officers in 1984 it’s still likely they would be on first name terms with all the local homeless. Even if KFG did have some form of mental disability or form of autism it’s highly likely that the local store owners and residents would know him. Harmless vagrants and homeless people are typically known to somebody, it’s just a matter of time, media attention and re-connection with the local community before that information becomes known. Some local, national and international media coverage are all likely to speed up this process.
At the moment, with no mainstream media network running the article I wonder what they’ve uncovered. Are they still investigating the case? Or is somebody trying to keep the story from breaking. If Blythe is an ex-marine and has his contacts within the Government and federal machinery it may just be a story that people don’t want to break and Blythe has been instructed to stay low until it blows over.
Without a name to KFG and without confirmation of his status Blythe and Dennis are still far from being in the clear. As many have pointed out, there is no Statute of Limitations in Virginia for felonious crimes. Therefore, any jury watching the video is going to look at the two final head stomps and declare ‘attempted murder’. They will then look at everybody else’s actions, the failure of anybody to stop the fight and the complicit action of moving a critically injured man and will surely say that everybody in that room was aiding and abetting.
So all of those Napa Auto Parts guys that closed early to watch the show and the woman that shouts “TV! TV!” are implicated, not to mention Blythe’s family and others involved in running the dojo. All of these people watched it or know somebody that watched it and they need to give up their silence. Even though Willie J Dennis’ son has come forward and said the guy was pulled out the day after, I find the statement doubtful as he would have been around 8 at the time. I can recall very little about what happened 25 years ago so I’m surprised he has any recollection whatsoever and can only suggest that his statement is what he was led to believe rather than what he observed. After all, why would an 8 year old boy remember something so uneventful as somebody being pulled out of a dumpster? My 13 year old son can’t recall anything more than a week ago.
Ultimately, I believe that Willie J Dennis is the tool in this video, the weapon that is used against KFG but it’s Blythe and the audience that used this weapon. They placed Dennis in a situation where he was embarassed and egged him on, I see Dennis’ crime as the lesser and Blythe’s the greater. It would also be interesting to correlate this event with Dennis’ future run-ins with the law. Was this the start of something? Or was it already a pattern of aggressive behaviour?
I just hope all of the children and grandchildren of those involved watch this video and push their parents into being open and honest. Innocent people have nothing to hide, nothing to be silent about. Only cowards hide and as every day passes I, for one, assumes that the complicity increases. The families know what’s happening, they know the world is watching and yet, they wait. This will not blow over, there are literally thousands of people watching this story every day and hundreds of armchair sleuths cross-referencing every database to elicit the truth. I know because I see all the hits on these pages.
