FLORIDA 18-B THE TAMPA TRIBUNE, Friday, November 21, 1986 r Guardian Angels plan to protest Ted Bundy 's stay of execution TALLAHASSEE (UPI) The Guardian Angels will protest the stay of execution granted serial killer Ted Bundy with a panorama of mock electric chairs and blood-spattered victims outside the prison where "the mutant Ted Bundy is living comfortably," a spokesman for the self-styled community protection group said Thursday. "We view (the stay) as a moral outrage," Guardian Angels East Coast director Paul Martinelli said. "The Guardian Angels are defenders of victims. Obviously, it is too late for us to protect his victims, but we can protest the stay." Bundy is on death row at Florida State Prison near Starke, sentenced to death for the 1978 murders of two Florida State University sorority women and Lake City schoolgirl Kimberly Diane Leach. He is also a suspect in dozens of similar murders from the Pacific Northwest to Florida. Bundy had been scheduled for execution for the Leach killing Tuesday morning. He was granted a stay by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal in Atlanta barely six hours before the scheduled electrocution. Martinelli said the Angels would protest outside the Atlanta courtroom the next time a warrant is signed for Bundy. "The justices will look out their Serial killer Ted Bundy faces the death sentence for three murders. window and see people protesting. Maybe it will make them change their minds about granting any more stays," Martinelli said. Martinelli said groups of 15 Angels each will leave Miami, Jacksonville, and West Palm Beach, the three Florida cities with Angels chapters, on Saturday morning. The West Palm and Miami groups will hold protests in Fort Pierce and Or lando, while the Jacksonville group will stop for an anti-Bundy rally in Lake City. The groups will meet in Gainesville at 6 p.m. Saturday, then go to Starke to camp near the prison. They will be joined by Guardian Angels national director Lisa Sliwa for a sunrise protest Sunday morning, Martinelli said. Each of the three groups will carry a mock electric chair for the rallies, and Angels covered in blood-spattered sheets will serve as dead Bundy victims, Martinelli said. They will also display banners proclaiming "Justice delayed is justice denied" and "Ted should be dead." "We will be remembering the innocent victims who did not get a stay of execution from Ted Bundy," Martinelli said. "So many people are paying the family of the victims lip service, but nobody has rolled up their sleeves and done something graphic to show what an outrage this is." The sometimes-controversial Guardian Angels are made up of inner city youths organized to patrol and protect their own neighborhoods, with or without police support. In Florida, there are 62 Angels in the Jacksonville chapter, 28 in Miami, and 75 trainees in the newly-formed West Palm Beach chapter, Martinelli said. Law hampers search for missing adults DAYTONA BEACH (AP) Fran Webb knows from members feel the same as many other families witt HAWinxnl ,w n A 1.1 M 1 1 ..! J 1 11 A. X J I. personal experience that parents searching for missing offspring over the age of 18 can run into barriers such as the federal Privacy Act. The founder of a support group for the families of missing adults, she has decided that lobbying against the national law has become a priority. The group, called Mothers Aid to Missing Adults, or MA-MA for short, is a year old this month. Webb says she can identify with the feeling of distress felt by families searching for loved ones. Her daughter, Darlene, was 20 when she dropped from sight Jan. 22, 1983, in Daytona Beach. Darlene had gone out with friends and her car was found parked with her purse inside. Police found no signs of a struggle and had no indication of what might have happened to the young woman. Webb said she finds it a catharsis for her to operate Mothers Aid to Missing Adults. She can relate to the other mothers and fathers who are in the same predicament, searching for offspring who aren't legally children any more. In the 12 months since Webb founded the non-profit organization, she has learned of at least three other groups nationwide dedicated to the same cause. The groups have set up a network of contacts in which they exchange information on ways to track down missing adults. "We're still fighting a big battle," she said. Some families who don't want to try to find an absent member "don't want to hear anything about it," she said. Webb has revised her manual for the families of missing adults, which contains tips about immediate steps to be taken in the event an adult disappears. Group members feel the same as many other families with adults missing, that government agencies respond only when children have disappeared. She and other members, including Helen Molnar, whose son, Timothy, then 19, disappeared from their Volusia County home in January 1984, continue to make up fliers with pictures of their children and distribute them. Webb's cousin is a long-distance trucker, so he always takes along a supply of the fliers and leaves them at truck stops. Additionally, she has compiled a list of driver's license offices throughout the country so families can check if missing adults have registered to drive in another state. V Since Webb started her group, she's heard from 30 other families throughout the United States who are searching for missing adults. Four of those families have found the missing person. But the Privacy Act, created mainly to prevent release of such records as bank information, is creating the biggest stumbling block for the group. "These people have the right after they are 18 to disappear if they want to," said Webb. "A lot of times, that stops a police agency from getting into the case right away." Webb's search for her daughter, which takes up much of her free time, is one of the biggest forces in her life right now. "I do everything I can," she said. She regularly talks with a psychic who believes Darlene, one of Webb's three children, is alive and suffering from amnesia. "I still keep my porch light burning every night," she said. . , ) BBBBBBinnrB I I I PIZZA & SU 'End Your Search " For Better Tasting Pizza !
