NCFM Update on the Kit Martin case: More Public Corruption in Plain Sight in the Kit Martin Sham Murder Trial – An Orchestration of Lies & Fraud by Corrupt Kentucky Attorney General now Governor Andy Beshear

April 27, 2022


More public records obtained in the sham Kit Martin murder trial have exposed the corruption of then Kentucky Attorney General and now Governor Andy Beshear.

The information provided here will disgust and sicken you and will show how one man’s insatiable demand for political power and wealth set the wheels in motion for the criminally procured indictment, orchestrated arrest, and wrongful conviction of an American Hero, Major Kit Martin.

A recently obtained public record, a Motion to Dismiss due to Due Process Violations, was filed by Martin’s defense team on September 24, 2020. The motion, which had been denied by Judge John Atkins, outlines in great detail that Andy Beshear set in motion the fraudulent indictment and high-profile arrest of Martin, with television cameras in tow on Saturday, May 11, 2019, at the Louisville International Airport.

There were no less than four separate law enforcement agencies who participated in the arrest of Martin just as he was preparing to board a plane that he would soon fly out, all while television cameras filmed the event. Stunned airline passengers expressed their shock before the news cameras which were immediately broadcast on numerous news stations. Gee….. what timing? Those news folks sure know where to be when something big goes down.

Well now….. isn’t this convenient? It just so happens, and the motion clearly reveals, Beshear perfectly timed these events, ELEVEN (11) days before the primary election where he had been polling virtually neck and neck with two other candidates. Beshear needed a little extra boost in order to secure the democrat party’s primary spot by a slim motion for the governorship, which he also won by a slim margin.

In short, Beshear needed a boost to propel him into the governors’ mansion, so he did it on the back of Kit Martin. The facts outlined in the motion show how the political ambitions of one man’s rise to the governor’s mansion came on the back of Kit Martin, an American hero. How any human being could orchestrate such a travesty of justice for personal political gain is something that we have only seen in a third world banana republic.

Here are a few snippets of that motion.

Here’s a link to the video press conference by Andy Beshear announcing the arrest of Martin. We would like the readers to watch this video and listen carefully to his claims. Once again you will be shocked and disgusted by the sheer level of corruption in his words.

Notice how Beshear never mentions any new evidence or any new facts that led to the indictment of Martin.

Beshear mentions that the family of the Phillips’ came to his office approximately two years earlier and that a tremendous amount of work had been done in that time period. Assuming that was early to mid-2017 as he never mentioned an exact date that his office was first contacted by the family.

The truth is that there WAS NOT a lot of work done by the Christian County Sheriff’s Department or anyone else in that time period.

In our previous article where we detailed the lies, perjury and criminal corruption of Lt. Smith, we noted and provided proof that they waited 2 years and 8 months to submit the mysteriously discovered shell casing to the lab for analysis. The shell casing was allegedly recovered in April of 2016, but they didn’t send it to the lab until December of 2018.

Here is an example. Without disclosing the content of this event, one of the sheriff’s department’s 2-page follow-up reports occurred in December of 2017.

The next dated supplemental report is dated February 7, 2019. That is the 2-page report documenting the failed polygraph exam of Diane Phillips.\

So….. where is the evidence of the tremendous amount of work that had been done? Two 2-page reports, one of which was completely benign.

Let’s take a look at another area. The snippet below is an evidence crime lab report for DNA comparison. That report is dated December 2, 2016, that exonerated Kit Martin which showed that various hairs that were submitted, DID NOT match Kit Martin. In fact, more than 100 items were ultimately examined for DNA, and…


The next evidence report is dated December 14, 2018, and involves the laboratory report on the shell casing forensic examination.

Kit Martin

So, for the sake of argument, and based on Beshear’s claim that a “tremendous amount of work had been done” between early to mid-2017 and May of 2019, we have this report, so where is the evidence of a “tremendous amount of work…”?

The only other report is dated April 5, 2019 and involves the analysis of Pam Phillips’ cell phone. But look more closely. The analysis only covers the time period from November 18, 2015, and November 19, 2015.

As we outlined in our previous article, Pam Phillips’ cell phone was not recovered until December 31, 2015 when Joan Harmon brought it into the AT&T Store in Hopkinsville where she asked employees to unlock the phone to see who the owner was.

WHY….. didn’t the sheriff’s department have the lab also review the phone and cell tower data up until December 31, 2015? Why did they wait 3 years and 4 months before they decided to forensically examine Pam’s phone?

This was INTENTIONAL on the part of the sheriff’s department. Why, would they not even request any and all information, including any time period in which the phone was outstanding? The answer is easy. They didn’t want to know. They had set their sights on Kit Martin and Kit Martin only, even though there was no DNA link to Martin, and the phone was linked directly back to Joan Harmon.

Perhaps… as the information trickles in, they intentionally deflected evidence linking Joan Harmon to the murders, and why? Perhaps Joan Harmon has intimate knowledge of the complexity of other criminal conduct and perhaps, other murders.

Andy Beshear looked directly into that camera at his news conference and LIED!
Why didn’t Andy Beshear assign one of his assistant attorney generals’ or a spokesperson to conduct the news conference? According to the KY Attorney Generals’ website, there are at least three persons specifically dedicated to communications. The reason is simple. Beshear wanted to get his face out there to the public in an attempt to portray himself as the tough law and order candidate, a week and a half before the primary election.

So….. where was all of this hard work that Beshear claims was done?

Anyone?…. Anyone?….

Beshear’s initiation and orchestration of a fraudulent criminal action against Kit Martin involve several violations of the Kentucky State Bar Professional Rules of Conduct.

Section SCR 3.130(3.8) define the Special responsibilities of a prosecutor.

The prosecutor in a criminal case shall:

(a) refrain from prosecuting a charge that the prosecutor knows is not supported by probable cause;

(c) make timely disclosure to the defense of all evidence or information known to the prosecutor that tends to negate the guilt of the accused or mitigates the offense, and, in connection with sentencing, disclose to the defense and to the tribunal all unprivileged mitigating information known to the prosecutor, except when the prosecutor is relieved of this responsibility by a protective order of the tribunal;

(e) refrain, except for statements that are necessary to inform the public of the nature and extent of the prosecutor’s action and that serve a legitimate law enforcement purpose, from making extrajudicial comments that have a substantial likelihood of heightening public condemnation of the accused and exercise reasonable care to prevent investigators, law enforcement personnel, employees or other persons under the supervision of the prosecutor in a criminal case from making an extrajudicial statement that the prosecutor would be prohibited from making under Rule 3.6 or this Rule.

There could also be a host of other criminal acts that Beshear is guilty of to include but are not limited to the following.

 Kentucky Revised Statute, Section 506.040 – Criminal conspiracy.

 Kentucky Revised Statute, Section 506.050 – Conspiracy – General provisions

 Title 18 U.S. Code § 242 – Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

 Title 18 U.S. Code § 1343 – Fraud by Wire, Radio, or Television

Judge John Atkins denied this motion but there was not a lot of local press coverage of the details of this hearing, and we can see why. Any reasonable person who had closely looked at these facts certainly would have read between the lines and could plainly see that Andy Beshear further launched his corrupt intertwined political career by railroading an innocent man.

And why did Judge Atkins deny this motion and what is his connection to Beshear? Volunteers have been doing some research and preliminary information suggests some very dark issues involving Judge Atkins. Once we learn more about some of these troubling issues related to Atkins, we will bring that information to our readers.


Here are some other bullet points from the motion.

 “The advancement of a political career. In this case literally into the governor’s mansion is certainly an example of gain. This case should be dismissed since it was pursued with the intent to gain an electoral advantage.”

 “This case had been sitting uncharged for literally years. Even the recovery of the mysterious shell did not prompt any quick action on the part of the police investigating the case. In fact, once the family witness could not pass a polygraph, serious questions should have been raised before any prosecution went forward. Instead on the eve of the primary the case was presented by a special prosecutor to the Grand Jury.”

 “The warrant was obtained, and the arrest was made in a public and dramatic manner. This maximized the political boost for the governor’s campaign.”

 “He (Beshear) did this in part upon the back of Christian Martin. To bring a criminal thin criminal case in order to improve electoral results is a form of benefit. Prosecutors may not participate in criminal prosecutions that benefit them personally.”

Obviously, Andy Beshear didn’t pull this off all by himself, he would have had other sycophants assist him. As is always the case, at some point, one of his loyalists who helped set this up will begin to sing like a canary once the heat ramps up in the kitchen.

Perhaps corrupt prosecutors Whaley and her diminutive co-counsel Garcia will soon feel the burn of the corruption scandal they have either been drug into, or were willing participants, and will spill the beans to avoid a federal prison sentence for civil rights violations.

Beshear, along with this father, a former governor of Kentucky has a history steeped in corruption related scandals, and a former campaign colleague of Andy Beshear was indicted and went to prison for a campaign contribution scheme.

Gov. Bevin Alleges Corruption Under Beshear Administration

A basic Google search with the search terms “andy beshear” and “corruption’ yielded over one million results.

It has been distinctly clear for many-many years that the Commonwealth of Kentucky has been steeped in all forms of corruption that span the spectrum.

So, the bigger and most obvious question; after lie, after lie, after lie has been exposed, why has there not been a federal corruption probe initiated yet?

As the old saying goes; where there is smoke, there is fire. In this scenario, it’s more like a 100 square mile fire storm.

The exposure and punishment of public corruption is an honor to a nation, not a disgrace. The shame lies in toleration, not in correction. . . . If we fail to do all that in us lies to stamp out corruption, we cannot escape our share of responsibility for the guilt. The first requisite of successful self-government is unflinching enforcement of the law and the cutting out of corruption.

    I watched that entire trial, the most corrupt unethical display of prosecution I’ve ever seen in my life …there was not one shred of physical evidence that they tied to kit not one shred ! unbelievable trial layers upon layers of corruption anyone that couldn’t see that is a complete idiot

    Even the evidence presented to the grand jury the cell phone evidence to get an indictment was completely false and all made up lies the whole key should’ve been thrown out on the cell phone evidence itself

    No evidence, no DNA, not his dog tags ( likely some one had the made and placed them there to be found much later), bullet shell not a shell used in his gun came about long after, no way the triple murder could have all been done by 1 person, enough media attention right before the governor election which resulted in a very small % of a win but placed him to win…..if this was your family murdered would you not want the people in prison that killed them? Why accept a conviction of no evidence no DNA…. why want a prosecution that bad to have no evidence #Joaniehadthephone
    Thank you NCFM for your stand for Chris (Kit) Martin I know he is innocent and I know the Prosecution Judge and Public Defender Governor and family of the Victims know who did this!!!!

  3. Renea on August 26, 2023 at 4:50 PM

    Who can we call to put pressure on looking at this case. There’s absolute gross negligence and he deserves a chance at a retrial. People should be hounding the people responsible for this horrible decision.

    The fact that anyone is still defending the murderer Christian Martin says a lot about your “cause”.

    • NCFM on August 23, 2022 at 5:17 PM

      Yes it does. We know he’s innocent. We know he was framed. We know those involved in the murders. None of whom are named Christian Martin… Thank you for pointing out that we stand by the persecuted…

    • Paulette gray on November 10, 2022 at 7:16 AM

      Perhaps you were too busy to follow his case or blind to see the facts. You would obviously delete your reply and sign the petition, he is innocent. One can only hope they continue to educate more people like you that have been brainwashed by a corrupt society

    • JD on February 27, 2023 at 7:50 AM

      Why were Joan Harmon and her son allowed to plead the fifth without taking the stand? Where is/was Joans boyfriend Stokes(brother of lead detective) . He was gone without a trace during the trial. Not available to testify?
