An investigator into the Franklin Prostitution Ring, killed with his son in a plane crash.
Gary Caradori was an independent researcher hired to investigate the Franklin child prostitution ring. As former Law Enforcement, a trained investigator and interviewer he had sufficient credibility to be employed by the Nebraska legislature. He interviewed a number of victims and obtained such damning evidence that on 10 July 1990 - foreshadowing a boast made two decades later by Sunny Sheu - Caradori called his boss, Nebraska State Senator Loran Schmit, to inform him that they now had the subjects of their investigation "by the short hairs." The next morning however, he died in a small plane crash. His other personal effects were recovered, but the briefcase of evidence was lost. Research into details of the attack is ongoing as of 2018 through means such as FOIA requests.

In November and December 1989, Caradori interviewed Alisha Owen, Troy Boner, and Danny King (no relation to Larry King), all in their early 20s. Owen was serving time in the Nebraska Center for Women at York for writing bad checks, while Boner and Danny King were living in the Omaha area. Caradori recorded their sworn testimony on over 20 hours of videotape, where they described being flown around the country as child prostitutes, involved in sadistic orgies as part of the Franklin child prostitution ring. Larry King, they said, had organized it all.
Fatal plane crash
Gary Caradori was killed on 11 July 1990, between 2:40 a.m. and 2:57 a.m. four miles south of Ashton in north-central Illinois, about 100 miles west of Chicago, according to the sheriff's office. John DeCamp wrote in his book, The Franklin Cover-Up that "A farmer reported he saw a flash of light, heard an explosion, and saw the plane plunge to the ground. The eyewitness account of the flash of light and the explosion was on the early edition of television news in Nebraska, but was pulled from subsequent reports which said that the plane exploded on impact", strewing wreckage over a mile.
Loran Schmit submitted an affidavit stating that he had been warned that Caradori’s life was in danger. Two years later, the National Transportation Safety Board concluded that the wings of Caradori's plane snapped off due to stress. His personal effects were returned to his widow, but not the briefcase in which he kept the results of his investigation - that went missing.
Caradori's death frightened at least one of those whom Caradori interviewed. However, it inspired Troy Boner to recant his original recantation, and give an interview for Conspiracy of Silence, the investigative documentary into the Franklin child prostitution ring which was made by Tim Tate but suddenly pulled from the schedules and as of 2016, has never been broadcast in USA.
On 6 March 1991 Loran Schmit wrote to Bill Bruce, an NTSB avaition inspector that "there have been entirely too many violent deaths associated with this investigation for me accept the conclusion that Caradori's aircraft simply came apart in the sky". In October 1991 EIR published an article which termed Caradori's crash "suspicious". In 2014 Wayne Madsen blamed the FBI for the event.
A 2017 FOIA request by Muckrock turned up no responsive documents from Illinois state police, and a sparse, single page document from the NTSB about the event, stating "CONTINUED FLIGHT INTO AREA OF THUNDERSTORMS. LOST CONTROL. BROKE UP.FSS FAILED TO ADVISE OF IMPENDING THUNDERSTORMS".

After his death, the commercially-controlled media tried to paint the man as a “crank” who “badgered witnesses” towards a “predestined conclusion”. GQ magazine wrote a story after he was dead that described him as a “delusional investigator.” Some transcripts and videos of interviews carried out by Gary Caradori survived him and have found their way onto YouTube.
