THE LENOX 7 EXPERIENCE:

REOPENING THE CASE

Prelude from Lady X

Welcome

This blog was born on December 12, 2006.

I am one of several people who have come together to demand investigations into a number of incidents of American corruption that connect back to Massachusetts, especially to the infamous “Lenox 7” drownings in Laurel lake, 1981, in Berkshire county in the town of Lee, in which Barry Griffin, Jr. and Richard Retzel lost their lives.

Team-members of this blog are individuals like myself who have direct family involvment with Massachusetts corruption, either as victims or as witnesses, usually as both. If you would like to help clean up corruption, post your comments here and provide links to similar cases if you know of them.

If we can get the word out about the incredible amount of conflict-of-interest and family privilege that has been involved in protecting murderers and other criminals in Massachusetts while the lives and careers of innocent people have been destroyed, then we can begin to put an end to this 30-year reign of terror.

The LENOX 7 in 1981: Peter P. Bianco, 18; Joseph F. Burke, 18; Mark E. Hinman, 18; Bruce C. Kern, 19; Steven M. Peretti, 18; Todd Terpak, 18; and Robert Walker, 18.

How It Began with Lady X

In 1981 I was struggling to complete college while raising a small child in the aftermath of a divorce. I had moved back to my hometown, Webster, Massachusetts to be near my parents.

News Of The Drownings

I had been to my sister’s house, the Burke home, in Lenox Dale, Massachusetts for my nephew Jody’s graduation from Lenox High. After the family parties were over, we all went our way, only to receive the news soon after that the State Police had arrived to arrest Jody Burke for his part in the tragic drowning of two Lee High grads, Barry Griffin and Richard Retzel, in Laurel Lake in Lee, Massachusetts.

Renee Burke, my sister, was nearly hysterical. She thought the world of her son and insisted that he was being set up by envious people. None of us doubted her very much because at that point we did not know what had happened. It did seem like it might have been an accident according to what she told us. Real discussion of the events within the family did not begin until the trial approached, and being in the eastern part of the state, I had not seen many news reports about the incident.

During the year after the drownings, another tragedy struck the Burke household. The youngest daughter was raped by a teacher who was found to have raped five of his high-school gym students at Lenox High. Now Renee was trying to get lenient treatment for her son from the same DA, Anthony Ruberto, who was responsible for prosecuting the teacher. (Ruberto is now deceased, having gone on to become a judge, and his brother James is now the Mayor of the county seat, Pittsfield.)

I continued to be only peripherally aware of the events in Berkshire County as I tried to juggle single parenthood, aging parents, and college studies in Worcester County. When my mother told me of the rape and my niece’s attempted suicide, I immediately contacted Renee. I was concerned because I had been molested while living with Renee and her husband as a young teen, and I never had spoken of it. I told her I had been through that without naming him (actually this was emotional denial on my part because she had full knowledge) and tried to talk with Renee about her daughter’s need for compassion and support. Renee was cold and abusive, as usual, blaming her daughter and treating the medical response as if it were over a stupid accident or something. She said they were in group therapy as if this nothing more than yet another major inconvenience her daughter was causing. It turned out that her daughter’s case was the pivotal case to identifying the rapist, then finding the other victims. Renee was hostile to my remark that my niece was a real hero and deserved support. I abandoned any thought of reasoning with Renee and went back to focusing on my own household.

Christmas In Gill, Massachusetts

The Christmas after that was hosted by my brother James Matteau and his wife Lucille in Gill, Massachusetts. He was a selectman and the head of a local social-service agency there, and their small “Cape” style house was filled with people since most of my nieces and nephews were of late high-school and college age. As the evening wore on and the eggnog and punch was consumed, the nieces all clustered around Kathy, the teacher’s victim, and gave her exactly the kind of emotional support she needed. All except her older sister Loree, who was majoring in social work at Providence College. Ironically, this future social worker subjected her sister to continuous insult and verbal abuse, even more than usual, and I tried several times to get her to chill. Renee then joined her and included me in the hostility, so I backed off rather than risk escalating it.

Renee’s husband, Joe, was also getting a little tipsy. He had molested me from age 12 to age 15, and I had put an end to it by holding a fork as a weapon and threatening to mark him in a place Renee would notice if he did not stop. After that he and I had a kind of truce, in which I could refer to the fork if he got flirty and he would back off with a joke. So we got along well enough. Joe asked me to talk, then in a very deeply touching manner unburdened himself and asked my forgiveness for what he had done to me, telling me how much he was learning from the therapy. I forgave him. We both then tried to have a talk with Renee, but she was vicious and would have none of it.

This connects back to the Lenox 7 during the next year, because bribes were arranged around both cases, using social services personnel that Renee helped set up at the new “feminist” Women’s Center, even while Renee Burke was threatened with charges of intimidating a witness by staff at the Berkshire Medical Center for being vicious to Kathy and interfering with the prosecution. They never did charge her, though.

Another Chappaquiddick?

Jody, himself, was not at that gathering that I can recall. In every encounter I had with him after that, he was concentrating on his young life and new marriage without appearing to participate in Renee’s orchestration of drama around the events. He certainly did not seem to consider himself the “victim” Renee made of him, and it was painful for me to contrast her high drama about her son with the way she was treating her youngest daughter. Kathy was an extremely talented young writer with the natural eye of a designer or artist, and Renee heaped abuse on her. She even tried to stop Kathy’s advanced placement into college while having moved heaven and earth to make Loree, her obedient co-abuser, into a record-breaking scholarship recipient and fully subsidized college student in spite of the family’s six-figure income.

Part of what I kept hearing from Renee, echoed through sympathetic relatives, was that somehow we were being depicted as unusually privileged people, even connected with GE management and the Kennedy clan. This seemed bizarre to me because I knew my mother’s Irish-American relatives only distantly and my dad and uncles were all self-educated union men, not one college grad in the lot. But their generation did not expect college of all young people, and I did know that Renee had talked with me over the years about her rise in GE to the management circles. I did know that “young Joe Kennedy” and his oil-heat company was one of the charities that Renee schmoozed with as part of her job at GE, and that she was important to top circles, including Jack Welch himself, because of her fluent French when GE had to handle foreign visitors. I later found out more about Jack Welch and his possible interest in treating the Laurel Lake drownings as another Chappaquiddick.

There is a growing list of books written by Massachusetts citizens and professional observers.

Look in the left column for some good ones that are directly connected to the corruption that has its roots in the money-laundering machine that was kicked into high gear on behalf of the Lenox 7.

I did see Renee manipulate medication against Joe Sr. in order to pressure his co-operation in forcing Jody to retract his confession. Jody did not have to face the original murder charges and I was there in the house and saw her force her own son to co-operate with the killers and retract his confession, even though he had a clean record, was an honor student, and as the driver of the vehicle he could have easily seen minor charges eventually get sealed. I argued passionately with her about it with Jody right there in the room in tears because of her yelling at him about his co-operation with the State Police.

I did not understand the seriousness at the time. I didn’t recognize that it was more than just Renee being overbearing, but I soon became frightened for my own safety and —‘s safety as I saw how psychopathic Renee was becoming. I still fear for —‘s safety. Renee wrecked her life and she doesn’t even know why, because she was only 6 when this all started. She believes the family attacked her for religious reasons. Renee tried to drive her to suicide, too. She also nearly killed — in similar fashion and this happened in about 2000, 2001. Around the time of my mother’s death. I heard Renee talk about what she did to —, with her excuses, and my dad talked about it a little with me about what happened. He tried, in his own way & in his old age, to protect people from Renee.

I also saw several incidents during the period of the trials that suggest —-‘s attempt at suicide was due to Renee’s abuse and threats, and she traded favors regarding —‘s case and the Lenox 7 case.

I had an incident in my own job in Boston regarding that connection between the two cases. I can easily document that those favors went way beyond personal family attempts to get lenient treatment for Jody.

Nucifaro was involved. Renee was Nucifaro Sr’s bookkeeper at the time of the drownings. She is a CPA and did the books for a number of Lenox lawyers and businesses besides her work at GE. In fact, she did those books on GE computers.

I am twelve years younger than Renee. She moved in for the kill when I stopped being her obedient baby sister, and I had to do what I could to protect myself and — as best I could. There are numerous incidents documenting Renee using her daughter Loree and other people inside the social service system to get information to intimidate or blackmail witnesses.

After the Lenox 7 trials, she began to use [her social worker daughter] as a professional service to people who need that kind of favor.

GE

She ran private financial accounts through the GE computers. Barry Griffin’s father was in a position to know that she had access and the ability to manipulate protected data at GE if he were ever to be asked the right questions. I know this not only from conversation with him here in Texas, but because I was, for a time, her confidant (before the drownings and the escalation of abuse in the family) and also because I have been a union steward as well as a member of some nonprofits boards and therefore I could see that certain things she was doing were not “kosher” and had only one explanation: money laundering & criminal intimidation.

She tried to involve me and several other relatives in a business that she wanted to run through her computer accounts inside the GE computer. I was to be set up with a “front” and I can easily document it because I rented the property and several other people were involved before I argued with Renee about the GE computer and then pulled the plug on it, myself.

I also worked, on the books, for a similar front Renee had set up and I was naive about it, but I was aware of Renee’s postion as a “development funder” and then when the argument about my own business happened it became clear in hindsight what was going on.

Renee was the executive administrative secretary directly answerable to the GE vice president in charge of GE Plastics. She also was one of the original people trained in GE’s NY office to go back and set up and run the first IBM computerized office system. We were very proud of her. She has a genius IQ and it was very exciting at the time.

But I understood, after she asked me to run a front business for her, exactly what kind of back-doors she had to be using in the computers at GE in order to be able to do that. Either she was running her own game or she was in charge of a game GE was running under her job-title. I told her I would not be part of it because I thought it was just her being reckless. It was a few years before I understood what she was doing.
