The Clinton hit list

Crime news out of Baxter County yesterday is worth repeating because of a relationship to the Clinton Chronicles, Clinton death lists and other fanciful right-wing efforts back in the day to bring down President Bill Clinton with any lie at hand, no matter how bodacious.

Among the most outlandish products was the Clinton death list -- a compilation of deaths  of people who supposedly knew too much about the dastardly man from Hope. Here's a typical Clinton Death List. Here's Snopes' debunking of the death lists. One of those on the cited death list is notable, however. This death was a favorite of conspiracists because it was an unsolved killing. Says the list:

JERRY PARKS - Head of Clinton's gubernatorial security team in Little Rock. Gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock. Parks' son [emphasis supplied] said his father was building a dossier on Clinton. He allegedly threatened to reveal this information. After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house

Now the news. The aforementioned son of Jerry Parks, Gary Wayne Parks (pictured in mug shot yesterday), was arrested Monday in his Germantown, Tenn., home and charged in the 2006 murder of his stepfather, Dr. David Millstein of Mountain Home. Gary Parks' mother, Lois, married Millstein sometime after the death of Jerry Parks in 1993. The Baxter Bulletin article notes that Gary Parks has a lengthy criminal record, including drug and theft busts in Pulaski County. No one has been arrested in Jerry Parks' death and nobody has linked Gary Parks to that death. But ....

I do think it's probably safe to take Bill Clinton off the persons-of-interest list in the 1993 case.
