Mja Inc : Notes

The subjects you were speaking about were the types of 3 day Workshops that I & another founding Partner took during our College years..

Its safe to say that we have attended over 100 of the 3 day Workshop's thru the years..

This is also how we studied the body language of a Suspect & re-creating a death or crime scene..

That education helped us to gain alot of experience..

It also helps when interviewing Serial Killers & Inmate Informates..

We still learn as we go along & I have been at this 40 years...

Mja Inc Investigations


When it was decided that the Body of Mr. Merritt Sr.would be exhumed..

Our Request's were made to give Together We Stand , Mja Inc Investigations,the Victims Birth Mother at least 24 hour notice..

Our Request was for Mja Agent : Mark Harper wanted to be in the Autopsy-Room during Mr.Merritt's Sr. Autopsy..

Mr.Harper use to travel with a Deputy Coroner in is local town while Mr.Harper was going to school..

Mr.Harper is a hands on expert,while the Deputy Coroner done the Hands On Work with the Body Mr Harper was writing down details like a Death Investigator would..

Mr.Harper has seen all kinds of Death's & learned how the Deputy Coroner would rule on such Cases...

The timing with how everything worked out was totally unprofessional when Mr.Harper is experienced in this type of work..

The point being you didnt want Mr.Harper in the Autopsy-Room..

After waiting for Months to get the Results the so-called 26 page Report You Sent Concerning Your Death Investigation Of Marcus Merritt Sr..was pure fiction..

In the Report alone it references to see Attachments but there are no Attachments..

The so called 26 Page Police Report is incomplete by all standards & logical Case Law..

The State Of Louisiana said the Cause Of Death Was Suicide..

That is in Question because the condition of the Body you really couldnt tell if it was Suicide..

State Ruled : Suicide

Mja case Law on point : A Death Investigation was never done on the day of his Death & no Autopsy was performed..

M.E. never showed up at the Death Scene but sent 2 attendants to recover Mr. Merritt's Body..

There are even unanswered questions by the the one's who saw Mr.Merritt's Body after Death..

Including the people preparing Mr.Merritt's Body for burial & his barber of 10 years..

First Officer at the Death Scene found people inside the Home & was told that they had touched the Body...

How the Body was touched has never been explained or if they had moved the Body in any-way..

No Report was made of that verbal exchange or what type of action took place in touching the Body or written in the field notes..

We are beyond the point of the Freedom Of Information Act since a portion of the Case File was released..

The State Of Louisiana ruled the Case a Suicide..

Case on point that its not an Active Investigation..

Therefore there is no State Law preventing giving those Case-Files that should include :

Documents should also contain all witnesses statements..

A Tox-Report could explain his state-mind at the time..

Any samples that include hair-fiber-blood-tissue & clippings..

Any photo's of the Death Scene the day Mr.Merritt Sr. was found dead in his BedRoom..

Any Photo's after the Body was exhumed & linking any Photo's concerning the Autopsy..

The bullet recovered Photo's & any testing that had been done..

That would include any tape recordings & hand written notes during the Autopsy..

During this recent Investigation concerning the Death of Marcus Merritt Sr.has not answered any Question but it opened up many other unanswered Questions..

Mja needs the WHOLE CASE FILE so our experts can take a look at the Evidence with no formed opinion..

I Promise you that none of the Photo's would ever be released to anyone or posted on any web-site..

Mja has experience in re-enactment's of Crime Scenes..

You learn alot from the Perp's M.O. if your able to learn the thoughts thats already in the Bosses pocket..

I know the State's Politic's wants to hide all the Facts Concerning The Death Of Marcus Merritt Sr..

Case on point : Until there is a Fair & Just Investigation concerning this Case the Case will Never disappear..

The Victim's Birth Mother can accept the Truth no matter where the Evidence might lead..

But With All Due Respect : The State Of Louisiana has failed to present a factual Case that proves 100 percent that Mr.Merritt Sr.took his own Life..

Any first year Lawyer could poke holes through your whole Case of Ruling It Suicide..

Another concern is during an interview the Chief of Police in the local town to the Louisiana State of Police said he washed down the death gun before testing it first..

We are amazed that he still has a Job & that he isnt even be investigated for Official Mis-Conduct..

One of our Case Laws on point was Mja laying grounds to Police Mis-Conduct concerning the Merritt Sr. Case..

The Chief Of Police took over the case when it should have been handled by Sheriff's Parish District..

When the Body was exhumed certain protocals werent followed & there was no answers that were gained & many other questions came to light..

These issues arent going away until our experts see the Whole File so we can come to our conclusions with the evidence that you can provide..

Mja Inc Investigations is reaching out to other higher Law-Enforcement Agencies to have the whole case investigated from top to bottom...

The United States Department of Justice & The LBI..

Mja Inc Investigations

Into my Dreams into the night & what I see isn't a perfect picture..

My Guardian Angel & the Ghosts of the Past with the Devil listening in & watching for when my Soul has been haunted & when will it stop where I move on to turn page..

The deck is stacked against me at every turn & more so when its a concerning Missing Persons & Unsolved Crimes & The Doe's that is a ColdCase..

I thought years ago that I gave my Soul to the Calling which was to help get Cases some type of closure..

I breathed that in for years concerning my work thinking it was my Calling & even though I questioned myself how far would I go to seek Justice..

I was trained old-school the starting the Miami Vice Days famous for there Undercover Operations..

Back in the day we bent rules but never breaking them & we thought out of the box..

I had some of the Best Handlers & I made the rules of making Cases..

My first rule was no making Cases on Family & Friends which was granted & if one of them needed rehab we got them help under the books..

A Female friend of mine got herself into trouble with Prosutiton at a Gambingly House..

I arranged a deal for her : If she gave up the names & lay out the house plan they would raid the place & her name would never show up on any paper work..

They raided the Gambling House & found books for Credit to GM & Chrysler workers..

Before the Trial they sent us both to Brandon Floria until court time..

Some Reporter's have asked when I will retire from this work & my reply was never..That I will die at my desk just like my first Handler..

My Guardian Angel guides me to the right path that has been less taken--The Ghost's are the Victims where there is no movement on the Case..

The Devil is there to keep everything in check that is balanced in his Favor..

But with more Missing Person being found & more Doe's are being Indentified & the of the Unsolved Homicides being solved--the Devil has lost his EDGE..

Accident or Murder

It was July 1970 & there laid 15 Year Old R.O. on the DiningRoom floor..

A single gun shot 25 cal. entered the left eye of R.O.& by all sense & purposes R.O. died instantly..

Witness To The Shooting : Mother & 10 Year Old Brother C.O. & the Fire Arm was in the hands of B.E. the step-father to R.O. & C.O..

Circumstance's Of The Shooting :

The Family was having supper  & the step-father B.E. was cleaning his guns at the supper table when a shot rang out from a 25 cal.hand gun he just was picking it up from the table..

B.E. was claiming the shooting was accidental--the gun just went off hitting R.O. in the left eye killing him..

A.D. & J.E. & L.L. were very close Friends with R.O. & were in a garage Band together since 5th Grade..

A.D. & J.E. pulled an all-nighter & were walking down the city alley-ways heading Home when our ex-Little League Coach was a Cop found them & had them get into the Police Car..

A.D.& J.E. was taken to KPD & were taken in a room where our ex-Little League Coach put the photo's of R.O. dead on the floor down on the table & asked..

Do you know anything about this ?

The gravity of the situation sank in that it was un-thinkable..

A.D. & J.E. said they knew alittle..

All 3 teenage Friends were separated in different rooms..

The 3 teenage Friends told almost the same story when given their Witness Statements..

B.E. was an Ex-Hells Angel or on the run from them..

All 3 witnesses stated B.E. always said he could kill R.O. & make it look like an accident because he had done it before while riding with the Hell Angel's..

B.E. came into the picture when they were 13 years old & he started dating our garage Band Drummer R.O.'s Mom which B.E. was 19 years younger then her..

They didn't see much of R.O.'s Mom when B.E. came into the mix & you would always find her in her bedroom..

She use to be a " Hands On Mom "..

B.E. worked his way into being our Band's manager & at that time he introduced us to beer & weed & most important Ladies..

B.E. was a big solid man & his aggressive attitude started by punching you in the arm..

A solid hit would make their body shake..

A.D. & J.E. went over to R.O.'s house & B.E. answered the door claiming R.O. was being punished by cleaning the tile floors with a tooth brush..

All the floors in the house was tile..

R.O.'s Friends seen just a peek of R.O. on his knees scrubbing the floor with a tooth brush..

It took R.O. 74 hours to complete..

R.O. ran away one time & to hear B.E. tell it R.O.'s Mom was going to have a Baby..

R.O.'s Friends talked him to going home & they went with him..

When they were all sitting in the Living-Room B.E. came out of the bedroom with a 12 gage shot-gun & he walked up to R.O. & used the butt of the gun to hit R.O. in the mouth knocking out 2 teeth..

B.E. was yelling  " If your Mom has a miscarriage worrying about you I will blow your head off "..

A.D. & J.E. went Fishing B.E. the step-father & R.O. they got into an argument coming back from the K-Town Dam after Fishing ..

B.E. pulled R.O. out of the car & made R.O. walk 5 miles Home & this happened at least twice..

There was enough to say : Let a Grand-Jury or an Inquest  be held to hear the circumstances of the events that led to R.O.'s death..

Three of R.O's closest friends teenagers at the time who were first was questioned by Police had to testify at the Hearing..

The story they told was unthinklable...

R.O's death was ruled : Accidental..

What other step-father do you know of cleans his Fire-Arms at the table while eating supper with the Family ?

That's at least Reckless Homicide or Reckless Endangerment..

That ruling Accidental has haunted some of the people involved for years..

The 3 teens that testified & being there age couldnt & didnt understand why B.E. wasnt in Jail..

The 3 teenage friends of R.O.'s after all these years still stand by their testimony..

They still feel R.O.  was murdered..

There is new evidence that surfaced years later that if it been available at the Hearing in 1970 charges more than likely would have been filed..

That's still being investigated..

Our Female’s Have To Become Fighters : Protect Yourself

The more I watch Discovery I.D. I see several Cases where if the Female in the Relationship would have walked away there might have been a chance they would still be alive..

Granted even just by walking away from a Relationship the Female might Not be safe because the Male is aggressive,combative,& mentally aggressive..

We all know 99 out of 100 Protective Orders don't work or slow down the aggressive Male & sometimes it makes things worse..

I have seen Protective Order’s issued & the Female becomes a Homicide Victim..

When there are no other avenues to follow the Female has to become 007 making her movements hard to follow..

Change all the Habit’s she had during the Relationship...

Ladies use your reasoning & you will find away to leave the Relationship to where your Safe..

Trust someone that will help you to do this..

1 slap-is to many..

1 hit --is to many..

1 kick--is to many..

1 thrown object--is to many..

1 demeaning name--is to many..

Please watch the Video below & see if this hits home concerning you or someone you know..

A CALL TO ACTION : February 17th--18th & 19th ending on the 20th concerning :


Tonight @ 9pm est..Together We Stand--Mja Inc Investigations & the Victims Mother Royce Eckley had a Pod-Cast concerning the 26 page Police Report concerning her Son’s Death..

The File was incomplete even noting [ see attachments ] & the attachments wasn't in the File..

The 26 page Report didn't answer any of the questions we had & the Report just raised more questions..

Our actions is to gain the full Report so our experts can go over their findings to see why the Case was ruled Suicide when all indications it was going to be ruled Undetermined..

Mja was told by two creditable witnesses close to the Investigation that Suicide wasn't even talked about & the Louisiana State Police wouldn't exhume a Body unless they felt Foul Play was involved..

The Louisiana State Police has been put on notice to hand over the full Report & File so our experts can give their opinion...

Down below are the links to the Pod-Cast but the FaceBook link works better & the audio is a lot better..
