In May of 1990 Gary Caradori met with victim-witness, Paul Bonacci for the first time. Paul had already spoken to multiple city officials regarding his history of sexual and physical abuse. Paul’s story helped Caradori put together the missing pieces of the Franklin puzzle. Through Paul’s abuse and trauma he had developed multiple personality disorder. One of Paul’s personalities used his mind as if it were a computer, storing information: names, dates, and places. Paul’s ability to remember exact places, dates, and names helped Caradori corroborate much of Alisha Troy, and Danny’s testimonies.
On May 10, 1990 Caradori met with Paul Bonacci for the first time at the Douglas County Jail. Paul was being held under charges of fondling one of his relatives. The following are excerpts from Caradori’s personal notes taken the day he met with Paul,
"Upon having Mr. Bonacci meet me in an interviewing room, Bonacci related to this writer that he knew Troy Boner, Danny King, and Alicia [sic] Owen. He further advised that he had been a victim of Alan Baer, Peter Citron, and Larry King, and had some knowledge of [sic], Harold Andersen, and a judge he later on referred to as Carlson.
The subject stated that he had been on at least one to two-hundred trips and had been involved in extensive homosexual activity as a child and as a young adult, with his homosexual activity starting when he was approximately 8-10 years old.
The Subject then stated that between the years of 1982 and 1986 he had probably been on at least 200-300 trips. The subject stated that he made at least 15-20 trips to various parts of California, a couple of trips to Washington D.C., and also trips to Des Moines, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Austin Houston, Dallas, St Louis, Miami, Pasadena, Tampa, Lincoln, and Grand Island.
Some of those trips he thought involved politicians from Washington D.C., however, he didn’t know anyone by name because of his young age.
…When questioned about Alan Baer, he stated that he first met him in the "Milk Run," an area near and surrounding the Correctional Center. He stated that he was approximately 12 years old and that this occurred possibly in 1979. He stated that Alan Baer would pay him $20 for oral sex. He stated the last time he had sex with Alan Baer was, he believed, around November 15, 1989, In Alan Baer’s apartment at the Twin Towers.
Paul Bonacci went on to state that he had gone on many "scavenger hunts" for Alan Baer. He defined "scavenger hunts" as an activity in which he would go out and recruit young boys for Alan Baer." (23)

First of all yes I am the real Paul Bonacci. I can tell you all Alisha is alive and well. I have had no contact with her well since before the Franklin case. But I have friends who are in regular contact with her.
I can also tell you I do not live in New England, never have never will. I also do not live in Omaha. I do live in Nebraska.
David did call my house, but he sounded a little unstable and I want nothing to do with that. I am doing well and I wish people will remember that my family has nothing to do with this and just leave them out.
I am not a mental case and am not Suffering from the past. I am an over comer, and do not look at myself as a victim. I am not living in fear and I don't dwell on the past. I would rather live in the present and look to the future.
So for all who pity me please don't I am not a child anymore I am a 41 year old Man. I am a husband and father who is enjoying my life that I have made for myself. As for some thinking I have been paid somehow. I was awarded a Million dollar Judgment against Larry King, yet I have not received a penny of it. If I ever do DeCamp will receive 40% and any amount I would receive will go toward starting a Foundation to help abused kids.
As for Johnny he is an adult and from every contact I have had wants to live his life FREE from any circus that his life would become if he was to come out of hiding.
I realize some of you may doubt that I am really Paul. I can tell you that Nick Bryant is a good friend and could verify what I say. Also his book is coming out the Beginning of April as his lawyers are going through the thousands of documents provided to him. It is not a conspiracy as to why it is taking so long to come out. After he was almost finished gathering information. More people decided to come out and talk for the first time. That of course pushed the book back. Also this book was not an easy thing to write. Nick said it is a very dark book and mentally challenging to him personally. My wife who is in frequent contact with him said on numerous occasions that Nick sounds very depressed with all this information.
I have laughed at many of these post as some people seem to think of us as still kids when we are all hitting middle age. If Johnny wants to come out some day he will. Nothing these post say will convince him to come out.
One other note the Jimmy Gibson that was busted for cocaine was a different guy. I never knew what to think of Jimmy as I did not know him very well. And was warned by some of my friends to keep my distance.
If you have any questions for me I will answer them if I deem them serious questions

DeCamp Legal Services ===== FILEDUS DISTRICT COURTDISTRICT OF NEBRASKA99 F E B 22 AM 8 : 14GARY D MCFARLAND CLERK IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA PAUL A. BONACCI, 4:CV91-33037 Plaintiff, vs. MEMORANDUM OF DECISION LAWRENICE E. KING, Defendant. On February 27, 1998, I found that default judgment should be entered against the defendant Lawrence E. King in favor of the plaintiff, Paul A. Bonaccl. A trial on the issue of the damages due the plaintiff by that defendant was had on February 5, 1999. Two counts are alleged against the defendant King in the complaint. Count V alleges a conspiracy with public officers to deprive the plaintiff of his civil rights, designed to continue to subject the plaintiff to emotional abuse and to prevent him from informing authorities of criminal conduct. Count VII charges battery, false imprisonment, infliction of emotional distress, negligence and conspiracy to deprive the plaintiff of civil rights. Between December 1980 and 1988, the complaint alleges, the defendant King continually subjected the plaintiff to repeated sexual assaults, false imprisonments, infliction of extreme emotional distress, organized and directed satanic rituals, forced the plaintiff to "scavenge" for children to be a part of the defendant King's sexual abuse and pornography ring, forced the plaintiff to engage in numerous sexual contacts with the defendant King and others and participate in deviate sexual games and masochistic orgies with other minor children. The defendant King's default has made those allegations true as to him. The issue now is the relief to be granted monetarily. The now uncontradicted evidence is that the plaintiff has suffered much. He has suffered bums, broken fingers, beatings of the head and face and other indignities by the wrongful actions of the defendant King. In addition to the misery of going through the experiences just related over a period of eight years, the plaintiff has suffered the lingering results to the present time. He is a victim of multiple personality disorder, involving as many as fourteen distinct personalities aside from his primary personality. He has given up a desired military career and received threats on his life. He suffers from sleeplessness, has bad dreams, has difficulty in holding a job, is fearful that others are following him, fears getting killed, has depressing flashbacks, and is verbally violent on occasion, all in connection with the multiple personality disorder and caused by the wrongful activities of the defendant King. Almost certainly the defendant King has little remaining financial resources, but a fair judgment to compensate the plaintiff is necessary. For the sixteen years since the abuse of the plaintiff began I conclude that a fair compensation for the damages he has suffered is $800,000. A punitive award also is justified, but the amount needs to be limited because of the small effect that such a judgment would have on the defendant King, given his financial condition and his presence now in prison. I deem a punitive award of $200,000 to be adequate. Dated February 19, 1999. BY THE COURT [Signature] Warren K. UrbomUnited States Senior District.
