Documents filed last week in Shawna Forde murder trial: FBI was warned of Arivaca home invasion
The FBI was told that Shawna Forde was planning a home invasion in the Arivaca area weeks before a man and his 9-year-old daughter were shot to death there.
According to documents filed this week in Pima County Superior Court, two confidential informants for the FBI say they told agents in April 2009 that Forde was recruiting people to raid a house she believed was filled with illicit drugs, money and guns.
On June 7, one of the informants told Forde in a conversation taped by the FBI that he and the other informant wouldn’t be able to drive to Tucson for a few days. He also told her he didn’t want to bring one of the other participants in their truck-stop meeting because he didn’t trust him.
Forde replied that she did trust him and went on to say: “We can train him. We can start him on soft targets. Our hands are already dirty. We’ve got to know he can pull the trigger.”
Forde then put Bush on the phone. After saying he was recovering well from his gunshot wound, Bush told the informant: “We have a couple new areas; we have our eye on a couple potentials. We’ll be ready to go Thursday or Friday.”
When Forde got back on the phone, the report indicates she bragged about Bush’s toughness and said: “It’s a brand-new team. They’ve been bled in.”
Fascinating, and frightening. Murderous racists know how to find each other.
