[Update, Thursday, March 1, 2018, 7:03 p.m.: Manuel Moore was 73, at the time of his death. I can’t give his date of birth, because California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation are not permitted to disclose that information, possibly due to concerns about identity theft.]
On February 28, I was finally able to learn what had happened to black supremacist, Nation of Islam, serial killer Manuel Moore.
Moore was one of the notorious “Zebra killers,” a group of black California convicts whom the Nation of Islam had recruited in state penitentiaries in the early 1970s, or possibly even earlier, to murder whites. Moore had been convicted in 1976, and sentenced to life in prison, at the end of what was then the longest, most expensive trial in California history.
The jury also convicted Larry Green and J.C. (aka J.C.X.) Simon. Jesse Lee Cookes had earlier confessed to rape and murder. All were sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole. Simon died in prison in 2015.
(The Nation of Islam paid for the legal defense of Moore, Green, and Simon. It refused to pay for Cookes’ legal defense. The murder cult refuses to support any black who confesses to breaking “the white man’s laws.”)
Moore, Cookes, Green and Simon had slaughtered a total of at least 18 whites, and wounded at least nine other whites in racially motivated attacks in San Francisco from August 1973-April 1974. They also committed burglaries.
Moore, Green, and Simon were put away, based on the testimony of their turn-coat, former confederate, Anthony Cornelius Harris, and the recovery of a pistol that had been the murder weapon in at least three of the killings.
(Other NOI assassin squads slaughtered whites up and down the state, and across the country.)
My friend and partner-in-crime, David in TN, had hunted for Moore’s whereabouts, and found him housed in Ironwood State Prison, in Blythe, California, but lost track of him, as of late last fall. David was no longer able to find Moore on the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation “inmate locator.” I had the same experience, beginning last week.
Last Friday, I began working the phone to California. Eventually I was able to find some helpful folks back in the Golden State.
On Wednesday, a staffer at the California (Prison) Health Care Facility in Stockton, San Joaquin County, informed me that Manuel Moore had died on November 15, 2017, in said facility.
The county coroner found “no reason to suspect foul play.”
On February 20, I re-published a list compiled by California State law enforcement in 1973-1974 that cited 73 “Zebra” victims in California. A friend who has helped me for years on this beat, and who is a family member of Stephen Conachy, one of the first San Francisco Zebra murder victims, scanned and sent me the list.
The list had been little noted at the time, outside of law enforcement circles, was never widely published, and has since been “reverse reported.”
