FLASHBACK: Personal Message To The Murderers Of North Baltimore

Originally posted 21 March 2007

"Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one." Isaiah 47:3

"O LORD Almighty, you who examine the righteous and probe the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance upon them, for to you I have committed my cause." Jeremiah 20:12

Yesterday you took a life. You took the life of a weak old man. A father, grandfather, brother and friend. You weak, cowardly bastards! He was unarmed, and you apparently were well armed. Have no fear, your day is near. Your time will come.

I was supposed to be with Rick, as I so often did for our regular daily "bull sessions." Yesterday I was late and now he’s gone. Hopefully, you soon will be too. Either you’ll be taken out by your own kind, God will deal with you, or you’ll spend the rest of your miserable lives in prison.

By the way, don’t even think about coming to look for me. No weapon formed against me will prosper. You may have the power to take a life, but you can’t take the soul, and you won’t take mine. May you rot in hell!

May God rest your soul Rick. You will be missed.

Killer Captured! Thanks AMW!!!!

Kevin Armstead


Ok, so I guess the profanity laced, angry rants were just not meant to be.  This is my third attempt at posting here.  Each time I’ve tried, I got an error message, and all of my writings were gone.  So at this point, being a bit tired and frustrated, I give you the super abbreviated version.....for now.

The man above, Kevin Armstead, was just arrested for the murder of my good friend Ricardo Paige.  For a year Armstead was on the run.  Just this past Saturday, his story was featured on America’s Most Wanted, and WALLAH!!!  He’s captured. 

Oh man am I elated!  As some of you knew, I was buried up to my head in working on this case and gathering intelligence and information working in close connection as a confidential source to several detectives and federal agents.

With the last 48 hours I was comparing notes with my agent contact and my attorney.  I said I had a very strong, strong feeling that an arrest will happen soon.  Not sure where it came from or what it was, but my gut was telling me something.  Well, tonight I am pleased to announce that this low life has been captured.  Oh how I wish my original writings on this were not lost, I had so much more to say.

If anyone wants to know more details about the case, the victim (I knew him), or the three arrested killers (I knew them), or my anonymous involvment with the investigation, feel free to contact me privately.  Maybe now my life can begin to return to normal.  Maybe now things can get back to normal around here.

Thank you Jesus, there truly is a God in heaven.

Rest in peace Ric.  I love you man.  God bless his children, grandchildren and family.


P.S. To Mr. Armstead and company, I hope you all burn in hell.
