The Mystery of the Carefully Crafted Hoax (The Nebraska Leadership Counsel)
On July 23rd, 1990, after hearing many hours of testimony a Douglas County Grand Jury issued an unusual and unprecedented report throwing out all of the allegations of sexual child abuse connected with the "Franklin Case" and labeling them a "carefully crafted hoax." Two of the victim/witnesses were indicted for Perjury on the basis of their testimony before the Grand Jury. Two other victim/witnesses, both of whom had previously detailed accounts of involvement with known pedophiles in the area, recanted their testimony, Many residents of the Omaha and Nebraska felt that the Grand Jury report was the closing of a very painful and turbulent chapter in the city's history. But the Franklin Case did not begin with the closing of the Credit Union in November of 1988. Nor did it end with the Grand Jury Report in July of 1990. Many events transpired before and after these dates. These facts are the subject matter of this report, whose purpose is to help unravel the "Mystery of the Carefully Crafter Hoax."
