My full name is Michael Roy Toney, I'll be 34 years old or young which ever way you look at it on December 29th, 1999. Everyone calls me Cowboy, I don't think that needs to be explained - the reason for the nickname is pretty obvious. I'm originally from Northern California but I've been here in Texas since about 1933. All my family is still in California. I don't have any family here in Texas at all. I haven't been an upstanding citizen by any means. I've been in a lot of trouble, mostly for credit card abuse, burglary, bad checks and theft. I'm not a murderer. I am completely innocent of the crime that I'm on death row awaiting execution for. I'm sure you'll find the reason I became a suspect and was later convicted of this crime to be strange and interesting.
It all started in
of 1997. I was in prison here in Texas serving a sentence for burglary
and credit card abuse. I used to fence a lot of stolen property which
why I've been convicted of burlary so many times. Here in Texas if a
gets caught with propety taken from a burglary-he's charged with the
I was serving a 5 year sentence and was to get out on August 31st 1998.
On a Friday in June 1997 I received a notice that I was going to be
to Weatherford Texas to resolve an old burglary case that I had been
to take care of for a number of years. When I receieved this notice I
down and was talking to man named Bennie Toole. I told him that I was
on a bench warrant to Weatherford and he started telling me to be
out there because they are very strict and give a lot of time. He went
on to tell me that he had went on bench warrant because him and his
had been suspects in a bombing case that happened in Lake Worth. Lake
is a suburb of Fort Worth (which is where I live) so I was naturally
about the bombing because I hadn't heard anything about it and its an
crime. Especially in Fort Worth Texas. He went on to tell me that
him and his friend (Mike Huff) were suspects in a briefcase bombing. I
asked him what it was all about and he said, "someone put a briefcase
someones porch in Lake Worth and it exploded and killed the Family. He
didn't tell me when this happened or exactly where.
I assumed that it was recently because of the way he was talking. The following Monday a Parker County deputy sheriff came to pick me up and took me to the Parker County jail in Weatherford Texas. I was there about three weeks when I got to know a man named Charles Ferris Jr. This detective would come to the jail almost everyday to get Ferris. I asked Ferris why the detective always came to get him. Ferris said, "he keeps telling me that if I'll tell them anything about the Don Baker murder that he'll let me go." I asked Ferris if he knew anything about it and he said "no" I had'nt heard anything about it nor did I know any Don Baker. Charles was sick and was supposed to be getting daily injections of Interferon but the jail wasn't giving them to him. I asked Ferris if he knew of anything he could tell the investigator so he could get out of jail before he died. He said, "no I don't know of anything." I then asked him what he was there for and he told me he was arrested for having an explosive device. When he said that I automatically thought about what Tools told me. Lake Worth and Weatherford are pretty close together, so I asked Ferris if he heard anything about the bombing in Lake Worth. He said ,yes, he remembered hearing about it but didn't remember when it happened or any details other than the fact that it was a briefcase on someones porch and that it was rumored that the wrong people were killed. I then said too bad you don't know anything about that I'm sure the information would get you out of here. Now for the stupidity on my part. I told Ferris to make something up and tell the detective so he could get out. He said, "but what can I say ?" I said go tell them you know who did the Lake Worth briefcase bombing. He then said,"but who can I say did it ?" I said I don't know tell them I did it I don't care. I don't know anything about it other than what Toole told me, theres no way anything can come of it. We then wrote out a request for him to see the detective. A few days later the detective came and got him. About an hour later Ferris came back and said, "it worked they're going to make me a trustee and let me go in a couple days." To make a long story shorter on December 4th,1997, I was indicted for Capital murder-multiple victims. I was indicted for the bombing. When the detectives served the indictment on me I told them the exact truth. I said,"I'm sorry but you've been had, Charles Ferris told you that to get out of jail. I went on to tell them that I hadn't even heard about the bombing until Toole told me about it'.' When I said that it was obvious that they were upset. I told them I would take a polygraph test or whatever. They never did allow me to take a polygraph.
I read the indictment and seen that the bombing happened on Thanksgiving day 11/28/1985. It had happened 12 years earlier. I had no idea that it happened that long ago. I also didn't know that the crime was the longest running investigation in the hisory of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms or that it had been featured on the television shows Americas Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries. I didn't know anything other than what Toole told me.
About 18 months passed and they finally took me to trial. The whole time I'm thinking they would drop the charges against me because there can't be evidence against me - I've never even been to the crime scene. When it came time for trial in May of 1999, my ex-wife and an old friend were the main witnesses. My ex-wife said that on Thanksgiving night 1985 we were to go fishing at the Lake Worth Nature Center. She said that her, me and my friend Chris rode in my truck to Lake Worth. When we got there I supposedly droppped off a briefcase and then we went to the Nature Center where we supposedly "hung out" for about 3 hours, until sometime after midnight. She said that sometime during this time there was a splashing in the water so "Chris and Mike got their 22 caliber rifles out of the truck and Mike shot a beaver, then we went home." She also said the briefcase was in the bed of the truck underneath the tool box.
The Following is whats wrong with her testimony?
#1. I didn't own the truck on Thanksgiving 1985. It wasn't bought until December.
#2. The toolbox that she said the briefcase was under wasn't bought until my birthday in December.
#3. The two 22 rifles weren't bought until December 18th and 19th of 1985.
#4. According to the National Weather Service 11/28/1985 was the coldest day of November, 41 degrees was the high and the low was 31 degrees, with wind to 15 mph. Too cold to "hang out" outside a truck that didn't exist yet and to shoot a beaver with a gun that didn't exist yet. She did say that when the agents first questioned her,she didn't know anything and I didn't ever say anything about it. She then got curious and went to the library and read all the old news clippings about--the bombing. She then called the ATF back and told them we went to Lake Worth on Thanksgiving night.
I think her boyfriend put her up to lieing for the reward. I also think they drove out to the crime scene and conjured up the story she told the ATF and what she testified to during the trial. The district attorney had to have some one to cooberate what my ex-wife was saying so they found my old friend that I hadn't seen in 12+ years. I know for a fact that the investigator told him what to say and made the statement for him. When he testified he couldn't answer a single question without looking at the statement to see what the answer was. He read from the statement as if they were a script. Thats exactly what they were to him. I believe the investigators somehow forced him to commit perjury. I was convicted solely by the perjurous testimony of an old friend that I hadn't seen in 12+ years and my ex-wife that I hadn't seen in 10 years.
I've never in my life even been to the scene of the crime. I didn't even know exactly where it happened until just before the trial. I've never made a bomb or even seen a bomb.
During the trial the D.A said that I bombed the wrong home. No motive was proven, they only had theories and no evidence to support any theory. Since the trial me and my family have received numerous letters from some men saying they know I'm innocent because they know who really did it and why. From these people I've not only learned who really did but why. The real murderers will remain free to commit more murders unless the investigation is reopened. The case may vary well be closed but the crime is not solved. An innocent man may be put to death for a crime he did not commit and other peoples lives could be in jeopardy because the real murderers are free.
I spent Thanksgiving day at my friend Chris Meeks home in Keller Texas. I had just met Kim about a month prior so I wasn't comfortable with going to be with her family. Kim and I later got married. Her and I spent the entire night together at her apartment. Chris stayed at home with his parents. We didn't go fishing the night of Thanksgiving. We did go fishing at Lake Worth some night in late December. I know it was late December because I did shoot a beaver that I thought was a nutra rat. I know it had to be sometime after the 19th of December because thats when the rifle was bought that I shot the beaver with. At first I thought my ex-wife was just mistaken about the date but after reading her statament I realized that she knew she was lieing . I didn't even own a briefcase in 1935. She just flat out lied and the only reason I can come up with is the reward.
I've never in my life been to the scene of this crime. I didn't know the victims. I've never even seen a bomb. I told the exact truth - but it didn't make any difference. When I was accused of the bombing I thought it was ludicrous and defied common sense. The State of Texas and the B.A.T.F used me as a pawn to close the case. The case they couldn't solve. Their behavior reeks of lies and the desire to conceal such lies. My hands are completely unstained, and the ATF knows it. It seems,in the State of Texas there are a litany of issues that could put any of us in jail before breakfast. Given enough time and money, any overzealous prosecutor could indict anyone, because sooner or later that prosecutor will violate the law or make a mistake in the course of the investigation.. I believe you would get a general agreement, that there are occasions where the wrong person is jailed and are even executed, and that every effort should be made to get them out; but that same acknowledgement is usually accompanied by the arguement-where there smoke theres fire. Correct ? Its no secret that the authorities first look to known trouble-makers or known felons when investigating a crime. What most people don't know is that they also look to people that have pissed them off. Their definition of a trouble maker is anyone that any Cop, prosecutor, or politician or bigshot wants taken out. The main objectiveof any law enforcement system is to solve the crime. Cops get promoted, Chiefs and prosecutors are made heroes and get appointments, politicians get votes. So the course that matters---is to pin the crime on someone and if they can't easily find the guilty party, they find someone they hate and try to get everyone else to hate him too. Usually that person is someone oflow public standing, a poor person that does'nt have the resources to defend himself against prosecutors with unlimited resources.
My conviction is a
miscarriage of justice . I will do everything I can to expose the truth.
I AM INNOCENT!!! , and can prove it. I'm in a desperate situation. I'm scared, I'm indigent and I sure don't want to be executed for something I not only did not do but something I didn't even know anything about. I need help, I need someone to listen to me and help me with a legal defense fund to hire some private attorneys and investigators. Without them my chances of not being put to death are about as good as a snow-balls chance in Hell. The old saying,"you get what you pay for." Is unfortunately, true. I didn't have the resources to pay for justice - I didn't get justice. It is important for me to stress this point : Court Appointed Attorneys do only what they have to do, to make sure an individuals rights aren't blatently violated. They are paid for by the State therefore work to please the persons that are paying them. If I would have had the resources to hire a private attorney and investigator-I would have been found Not Guilty . The only true verdict to the case.
I AM INNOCENT !, I have the evidence needed to prove it. All I need is some support. I am asking anyone that reads this. to please give my situation some serious thought and please join the struggle to save an innocent mans life. I have tried to make this as short as possible, but truthfully I could go on for many pages giving you details that prove my innocence. If you wish to know more feel free to contact me. I will answer any questions truthfully and to the best of my knowledge. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to review this information and I would greatly appreciate your help and support.
The only way to save my life is to exptse the TRUTH, and to hire private Attorneys and investigator. Contributions to fund these costs are highly appreciated and very well may save an imocent mans life.

Closing Statement of Michael Toney
If the State of Texas and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Doesn't reopen the investigation regarding the Blount bombing - not only will they commit murder by executing me - but - they may be allowing the people that murdered the Blount family to murder other innocent people. By not continuing the investigation and bringing the true murderers to justice. The State of Texas and the B.A.T.F are placing the lives of many in jeopardy. From what I've learned about the people that murdered the Blounts - they are very dangerous and are a serious threat to society. If the State and BATF doesn't continue the investigation, in essence they are promoting murder and committing the murder of me by the manipulation of due process.
I am willing to waive any rights I
have regarding civil damages for wrongful incarceration or wrongful
If this is an issue preventing the investigation from continuing and
the arrest of the real murderers ---all they have to do is bring me a
or release to sign. I will gladly release them from all civil
and agree not to pursue any civil actions.
PLEASE WRITE !
I'm 34 years old. I was convicted of Capital Murder-Multiple victims. The crime was a bombing that occurred in Fort Worth, Texas on November 28th, 1985. I was convicted in May of 1999. I AM INNOCENT. This conviction and death sentence are a terrible miscarriage of justice. I was convicted by the perjurous testimony of two people. They were after a reward ! I'm looking for anyone willing to help me expose the truth and correct this miscarriage of Texas justice. If the investigation is not reopened I will lose my life and other innocent people will lose their lives because the real murderers will remain free. I will answer all letters and questions whether they are derogative or supportive.

PUBLIC NOTE FROM MICHAEL
TONEY; September 2005 :
As always I hope and pray this email reaches all of you enjoying a beautiful day.
It’s hot again here in Texas. It cooled some last week, but now it’s back in the 90o to 100o F range. It’s hot again! That’s Texas weather as usual.
I’ve been somewhat discouraged lately for more reasons than I can count. The number one reason being the fact that my dear friend and private investigator, Tena Francis, has move to Las Vegas, Nevada. She will still be able to work on the case, but not in the capacity we need her in right now. The timing on some very important matters is critical and I’m not sure how we can handle them without Tena. This worries me a lot. Other problems I’m having relate to my own family, who are understandably pro-death penalty. I say, “understandably," because we have had loved ones murdered. I respect their opinions as I do everyone else's, but I have caused them some pain recently. I didn’t do it on purpose, but irregardless of intent, I hurt them. Because of the pain I have caused them, I am ashamed and hurting myself. And then there are the problems I’m having here with other inmates who are having a good time criticizing me by calling me a liar and the like. They seem to think I have lied about being one of the people who was part of creating the “Shout Out Show” for the Polunski Unit on KDOL FM radio. The show was created by a Youth Pastor by the name of John Wood and was the direct result of my correspondence with him. John no longer has a show on the station. It’s all a bunch of nonsense, but the timing of all of this is terrible, because much media attention will be brought to my case and my fight in November and some of the media intended to use the radio station “Shout Out Show” story as well as other positive things I have done to try to show me in a good light. Now that the problems are happening, that won’t be possible. I give full credit to the other man, who is claiming responsibility, even though he did absolutely nothing helpful. I understand he is a weak-minded person with serious insecurities, so I’m sure he can use this to elevate his self-esteem. I wish him all the luck in the world.
We are still working on the reward situation. For those of you who don’t know this, we are raising the money to offer a 25,000 dollar reward for information about who really committed the crime that I have been wrongfully convicted of. I know many Europeans don’t understand the offering of a reward for information, but it is the American way and in this case it is the only way. The only way to save me from this nightmare is to find information regarding who actually committed the crime and why. It isn’t possible to find any other information or evidence to exonerate me other than the evidence inculpating the guilty. It’s not possible to find evidence to exculpate me when there is no physical evidence that inculpates me. I have never been to the crime scene, didn’t hear about the crime until 1997, which was 12 + years after it happened and I’m in no way whatsoever connected to the crime or the victims. Because of this, the only way to save my life and see me freed is to find out who did it. Frankly, that’s what I want to happen irregardless of what happens to me. Someone killed Joe Blount, his daughter Angela and Michael Columbus and even if I don’t deserve true justice, they do. Their loved ones also deserve justice. I have given them my word that I am going to use my every breath to find who did it and I mean it. Without that information, I will be executed for a crime I am completely innocent of.
The reward will be offered by billboards by the side of major highways near the area where the crime occurred and by newspaper advertisement. The media people I have corresponded with have said: “It is a big story, because it will be the first time a death sentenced man has done such a thing. Why would anyone seek information, if they were guilty?” We will also have to have a website dedicated specifically to the case and the reward and a toll free phone number for people who have information to call. The primary problem right now is finding someone knowledgeable enough to answer the phone and take the information. The information will have to be transmitted to Tena Francis and David Dow, so it can be investigated, which is yet another expense. We can do this and we can do it in time. All of this MUST be done by the first week of November to be effective. So, as you can understand, I’m under tremendous stress right now. I don’t know if we will have to hire another investigator here in Texas or what.
Also, about the “Shout Out Show” on KDOL. The show is now on Friday and Sunday. The Friday show starts at 4 PM Texas time and continues until 7 PM. The Sunday show still starts at 2 PM until 7 PM. I am more likely to hear your shout out, if you email for Friday or call in on Friday. The reason is I am a football fan and I listen to the games on Sunday. I haven’t been getting many shout outs anyway. In fact I didn’t get any at all this week. If any of you would like to send me an email shout out to be read over the air, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and on the subject line write: “Shout Out for Michael Toney.” Then write your email just like you are writing one to anyone and it will be read to me on the air, so I can hear it. You can also request that music be played for me, not just on Friday or Sunday, but any day of the week by sending an email to the station. You can also call in and talk to me live on the radio by calling (936) 328-8874 on the days and hours listed above.
I’d like to tell all of you about a young man here by the name of Sam Bustamonte. I know most of you aren’t in a position to help him, but perhaps you can forward this email to someone who can. I know I ask a lot of all of you, because I’m always telling you about men who need help, but unfortunately that’s the reality of this place. Every man here is sentenced to death and most are fighting for their life. The problem is there is very little we can do for ourselves and most of the men here don’t comprehend the law and aren’t able to express themselves in writing well enough to get help. Sam Bustamonte is in that situation. He needs help, but most people ignore his pleas for help. I’d like to tell you his story or at least part of it and hopefully some of you can forward this email to others, who may be able and willing to help him. It’s the typical problem. Money! It takes money to get justice in America and a lot of it. It takes even more money to get justice in Texas. I don’t believe it would take very much to save Sam’s life, but so far he hasn’t been able to garner any support at all and he is running out of time. His case is now in the Federal Court, which is the next to the last stop before execution. All I can do is tell his story, which he asked me to do and I will hope someone will read my words and help him.
The most difficult thing about writing Sam’s story is writing that he is a murderer. It’s difficult for me, because of my own life’s experiences. All of you know my girlfriend was raped and murdered as was my aunt, my father’s twin sister, and another family member. All of their murderers have been sentenced to death and one has been executed. Because of this, I often have a difficult time being sympathetic to murderers. However as a Christian I know it is critical to my eternal well being to forgive and to have compassion for all humanity. As a Christian, we cannot judge anyone.
The primary reason I would like to see Sam Bustamonte get some help is the fact that I believe he is a victim of a miscarriage of justice even though he is guilty of murder. Murder does not carry a death sentence, but “capital murder” does. Capital murder is when someone deliberately and intentionally kills more than one person in the same action, kills a police officer, fireman, a child under 8 or kills someone while committing another felony, such as rape, robbery, etc., etc. Sam didn’t do any of these things to make this particular murder a capital murder, so he should not have been sentence to death. He is LEGALLY innocent of CAPITAL MURDER, but is guilty of murder, which carries a sentence of anywhere from 5 years to 99 years, but not death.
Before I continue with this writing, I want everyone to know that I have Sam’s express permission to tell his story. Some of what I’m going to write will be disconcerting, but it is all very typical of who is sentenced to death in Texas. I am of the belief that even if Sam were guilty of capital murder there are sufficient mitigating circumstance to warrant life rather than death. As I wrote before, Sam is a murderer. He killed a man and after I tell you about his childhood, maybe you will understand why he became a murderer. Before I tell you why he committed the murder that caused him to be wrongfully convicted of CAPITAL murder and sentenced to death, I’m going to tell you why he became the man he is. We are all a product of our environment. The environment I grew up in was anything but ideal, but Sam grew up in a hell created by his own parents, the very people who brought him into this world.
I’ll begin with what I perceive as the worst part of Sam’s childhood. His father, a six-foot six-inch tall man, who weighted 365 pounds, constantly raped him. His father was a giant of a man by any standards. Man is probably the wrong word to use for a man doesn’t do the things Sam’s father did to him. The word “Beast” is a more appropriate description. Worse yet, as his father would brutally rape him, his mother would watch and tell him that it is what he deserves. As a child and as a man, Sam was terrified of his own father. These vicious people, his mother and father, brutalized him in many, many ways. He was beat so often and so badly that he would often pass out, unconscious. When he would awaken, he wouldn’t be able to walk. In addition to the ritual beatings, they seemed to entertain themselves by trying to electrocute him. His mother would set his clothing on fire while he was wearing them and would put his hand on the hot stove. She tried to drown him and made him drink rubbing alcohol. They made Sam stay in a locked room out of view of visitors and would tell the visitors that they had to keep him locked up, because he would “raid the refrigerator,” (eat the food) or run away. I’m sure he was hungry after all the beatings and I’m certain he would have been justified to run away from home. His home was hell and his own parents were devils and are to this day. Actually, according to Sam, they weren’t devils, just devil worshippers. Sam was also beat on the head a lot, which caused some damage, making him a “slow learner.” Because he was a “slow learner,” his parents had another reason to torture him. When he would bring home bad reports from his teachers regarding his poor grades, he was subject to brutal beatings. Among the many injuries he sustained from these regular beatings include, his leg was broken three times, which is the reason he has an awkward walk now. His hand was stomped on and broke and his “head was cracked four times.” I could go into much more detail about all of this, but I don’t believe it is necessary, as I’m sure you get the point. To this day his mother hates him and wants him to be executed.
Now that I’m thoroughly depressed, I will tell you what Sam did to end up on Texas death row and why. Keep in mind that I’m not in any way condoning his behavior. However, even though I don’t know him very well, I’ve been around him long enough to know without question that he has some serious psychological problems. Some days he seems perfectly normal, but in a split second he can become a completely different person. Considering his history, I think all of us can understand why he has psychological problems. During his good moments, the man has a kind heart and sincerely cares about others, but during his emotional outbursts it is clear he has endured much emotional and physical suffering in his life. I’m not comparing him to an animal, but I’ve seen the same thing in horses and dogs that have been beaten and otherwise terrorized. They can be very warm, giving and wanting affection, but as soon as painful memories surface, a protective mechanism takes over and they become cold, defensive and sometimes violent.
Sam cannot and does not deny his history of criminal activity, which to me is an admirable quality. I respect any man who accepts responsibility for his actions, even if I don’t relate to him as a person.
On January 19, 1998, three men took Sam out on the town to do what they often did. This was Sam’s first time going to do this. They would search for illegals (Mexican immigrants) who they would rob. This is a common thing in Texas and other border states, because everyone knows that “illegals” cannot call the police, because they will be arrested and deported. During the course of looking for an illegal alien to rob, they came across a man wanting a ride to his girlfriend’s house. This man was wearing a cowboy hat, had on gold chains, a watch and a belt buckle and he had a mustache. Which according to Sam is exactly how his own father dressed and looked. Upon seeing this man jump into the back of the truck, Sam snapped into one of his defensive modes as if it really was his father. In his mind I doubt he could discern whether it was his father or a stranger. Keep in mind the abuse Sam suffered at the hands of his father. To make a long story short, Sam, while in what can only be described as a psychotic rage, stabbed the man to death. When the body was found lying in a ditch, he was still wearing the jewelry and had one hundred dollars in cash in his pocket. He was clearly not robbed; therefore the crime was murder, not CAPITAL MURDER. If he had been robbed and had Sam formed the specific intent to rob this particular man before he was murdered, it would be CAPITAL MURDER. However, Sam did not intend to rob this man. Had he intended to rob him, he would have.
You’re probably wondering why he was charged with and convicted of capital murder. The answer is very simple and very typical of how things work in Texas. The other three men, who were with Sam, did what the prosecution wanted them to do. They testified that Sam intended to rob the man, but didn’t. Why did they testify falsely? Again, very simple. None of them are sentenced to death or are even in prison. They negotiated their way out by doing what the State requested of them. They wanted Sam, because his history made him the most undesirable person of the four. He is not guilty of CAPITAL Murder and should not be sentenced to death.
As in almost all death penalty cases in Texas, where lawyers are court appointed and paid a limited amount for their services, they do a disgraceful job in defending their client. After all, that’s not difficult to understand as the lawyers loyalty is with the people who are paying them, the State. Sam’s lawyers effectively aided the State in obtaining a death sentence. The lawyers who have represented him on appeal haven’t been any better until now. At this time he has a lawyer who has tried to help him by asking the court for the funds to hire an investigator, but the court has denied the request. I have read letters from the lawyer, in which he informs Sam that he may be able to save his life if they only had an investigator to gather the evidence proving Sam had not intended to rob the man that was murdered. It will cost approximately $5,000 to hire an investigator to save his life. Is his life worth that much money? It seems like a small amount for a life, but on the other hand he is an “undesirable murderer.” At least that’s what the state of Texas believes.
Sam gets very little support from the outside. In fact, he gets so little that he uses almost all the funds he gets to buy postage and typing ribbons to write letters asking people for help.
