Getting Refamiliarized with the Murder of Michael FranckeTim King Salem-News.com
Salem-News.com is connecting the dots between a historic murder and a current corruption case.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Many Oregonians recall the tragic and shocking murder of Oregon's prison director Michael Francke in December 1989. He was hired by the Oregon governor for the specific reason of cleaning up the corruption in Oregon prisons; developed a strong case on several top officials and was stabbed to death.
After almost 21 years, the stories have never gone away.
Many know the truth, they have always known, because they were right in the middle of it. They are painfully aware that the investigation and Murder conviction of a man named Frank Gable was forced by the state under false pretenses.

"It might just be the biggest mystery in Oregon politics. Michael Francke, the director of the Oregon prisons, was murdered in the parking lot of his office. Frank Gable, a small-time thief, was convicted of the crime. Kevin Francke, the victim's brother, thinks Gable is innocent.
"There are all kinds of swirling conspiracy theories, counter-theories, allegations, and missing details. Heck, there's even been a movie starring Angelina Jolie and written by the Tribune's Phil Stanford."
Our current series on the saga of former Oregon Corrections Officer William Coleman and his survival of the same system that led to the death of Francke, has endless parallels.
We have already published three parts in this specific series, they are:
To fully understand the story of William Coleman, you must begin by watching this movie, 'Without Evidence' which outlines the actual events surrounding the murder of an honest American who tried to help Oregon: former Oregon Dept. of Corrections Director Michael Francke.
I suggest watching the film and then reading the three stories noted above. The clock is ticking for the corrupt of Oregon. We know who you are, we know that in some cases people involved in the Francke murder were and still are functioning as elevated members of Oregon government.
There are many who need to be tried for the actual murder of Michael Francke. This corrupt state forced a false witness to testify and convict an innocent man. The game is almost over though, and the deception of state officials will soon be out in the open, delivered through indisputable channels.
Great resources on the Michael Francke Murder:
