Jerry was always on the lookout for the feds planting spies in his cell block--spies to find something that would keep him from getting parole. Once there was a new cellmate who claimed to be from his hometown, had shot a sheriff and done other bad things, and wanted to be his pal. Jerry was skeptical and asked me to check. I was unable to find anything about the man, not even a single charge, and if he lived where he claimed, it must have been under another name. By the time I told Jerry this news, the man had been moved. Do you believe in coincidence? I checked on several people for him but this was the only one suspicious. if anyone asked too many questions, Jerry shut him down. I don't blame him. The inmates at all the prisons probably had heard the rumors about his hidden money, so he had that to worry about, And as the time neared for his parole, the government applied more pressure.I saw this myself. And I try hard to believe that his sudden onset of cancer, only months before his parole hearing, was just a coincidence.
