NCFM MEMBER KIT MARTIN CASE UPDATE

November 17, 2021
By

Due to demand of persons interested in the case of Kit Martin, NCFM is providing a brief update to allow our readers of the advocacy efforts we are conducting in support of Kit Martin. In late September and early October, NCFM filed two Open Records Act Requests with the Kentucky Attorney General’s office. We published those requests in an article dated September 27, 2021. Here is the link to that article.

https://ncfm.org/2021/09/news/courts-news/court-cases/ncfm-files-open-records-requests-with-the-kentucky-attorney-general-in-the-wrongful-conviction-of-christian-kit-martin/

The records requested concerned various communications between the KY AG’s Office and one or more relatives of two of the homicide victims. Information learned during the course of the televised trial and a subsequent Dateline NBC segment reveals evidence that strongly suggests these relatives have taken an active and aggressive role in framing Kit Martin. NCFM believes that information learned through the open records act request, will provide proof of such complicity.

The second request for records concerns the issue surrounding the highly suspicious timing of the arrest of Kit Martin at the Louisville International Airport on the morning of Saturday, May 11, 2019, while he prepared to board a plane that he was to fly, with an armada of armed law enforcement personnel who were being followed by television news cameras.

As of the date of this update, the KY AG’s Office has denied our open records request and we have filed an appeal. Strangely, in email communications with representatives of the KY AG’s Office, our appeal was referred back to the same office that denied our initial request with what appears to be a ‘cut and paste’ caution warning concerning our attaching of PDF documents in our request. Their convoluted response does not follow established open record protocols, and one can only conclude that something is amiss. For those who are interested, please take a look at the image below and provide a comment whether or not it appears to be ‘manufactured.’

NCFM wishes to inform those who have demonstrated an interest to this most egregious example of a maladministration of justice that we are continuing in our efforts to bring transparency and truth to the case of Major Kit Martin, and as soon as more is learned, we will publish those results. This update is being provided at this time as it appears that the appeal process will be fraught with some difficulty.

    Established open record protocols MUST be followed as well as transparency.

    You are absolutely correct Michelle and the passing of the buck is clear evidence that someone or some persons in the KY AG’s Office are coming to the realization that this is a huge mess. The big question is whether or not someone in that office will do the right thing and assist in the effort to free an innocent man and to investigate the entire investigation and prosecutorial effort. Countless professional rules and state and federal laws were violated as well as a plethora of due process and constitutional law violations.

    The reply clearly seems to be a copy and paste. Seems the AG’s office and the appealing office are passing the buck from one office to the other attempting to avoid supplying the information requested.
    As the old saying goes, those that have nothing to hide hide nothing! Free Major Kit Martin!
