Meth dealers hunting a drug thief in St. Louis are responsible for a pair of murders, including the grisly killing of man whose toothless, charred corpse was found last summer in a burning Dodge Challenger, according to federal authorities. The case began in July when FBI agents in St. Louis began investigating a 30-year-old ex-con named Adam Mainieri. They suspected he was selling about five pounds of meth every two weeks, according to a search warrant application first reported by the Kansas City Star. It didn't take long for investigators to trace his supply back to a major meth ring in Kansas City, Missouri, run by 29-year-old Trevor Sparks, authorities say. He was among a dozen Kansas City and St. Louis area residents indicted in December on federal drug charges. Prosecutors allege that the crew moved more the 1,000 pounds of meth over two years, pocketing $8.5 million as part of the scheme. An affidavit filed with the search warrant application also describes terrifying violence. Sparks, who has previous convictions for robbery, traveled in August with a crew of dealers to St. Louis in search of a drug courier whom he suspected of stealing $30,000 and a car from another courier in Winfield, about 4o miles northwest of the city, according to the affidavit. When they arrived, they met two other members of the ring — James Hampton and Brittanie Broyles — who were to help with the search, authorities say. Sparks believed that Hampton knew where to find the missing drug mule but was holding out on him, the investigators posit. So Sparks and the other dealers took Hampton back to a house in Winfield where another drug conspirator, Stephanie Thurmond, lived, according to the affidavit filed with the search warrant application. Court records show Mainieri also lived there. Sparks and two other dealers, including Broyles, tied Hampton to a chair with electrical cords and beat him, possibly with brass knuckles and kitchen pots, authorities say. On August 2, they bound up his body and put it in the Dodge Challenger, the FBI says. Sparks then allegedly had them get rid of him. Four days later, on August 6, Lafayette County Sheriff's deputies found the smoking Dodge Challenger in Bates City, a small town off of Interstate 70, not far from Kansas City. At first, the car and skeletal remains were a mystery. Sheriff's officials told reporters the body was too badly damaged to easily identify. But law enforcement agents tracking the meth ring later discovered the body had been Hampton. When they searched the property around the Winfield house, they sifted through a burn pit. Along with electrical cords, a black pot and a cell phone, they found a set of dentures. "It was believed HAMPTON wore dentures, however the dentures have not yet been identified as belonging to HAMPTON," FBI Special Agent Tricia McCormick wrote in the affidavit. "In addition, HAMPTON’S charred remains were recovered with no teeth." On August 8, two days after the discovery in Bates City, a truck driver found Broyles' body next to a pile of telephone poles in Kansas City. She had been shot in the head. The FBI suspects the 28-year-old was killed because she witnessed Hampton's murder and knew he had been dumped in the Challenger. Over the following weeks, law enforcement agents sent a confidential informant to buy meth from Sparks' crew at a house in Kansas City. When authorities eventually raided the place in December, they found Sparks hiding in the attic. As they walked through the house, they discovered guns lying all over the place, along with pill bottles, meth and marijuana. There was a bowl of loose ammo in the kitchen and more than $30,000 in cash, separated into stacks and bound with rubber bands. An informant told investigators Sparks had claimed someone had broken into his storage container and stolen 300 to 400 guns that he collected by trading trading meth. So far, Sparks and the others are only facing charges related to the drug conspiracy, money laundering and weapons possession. Authorities have yet to charge anyone in the killings of Hampton and Broyles.

  13. Thanks guys, BFNY is closer to me that OST so that would be the furthest I would go. I know it would be well worth it, i have read so many good things since i got my car in 2013 about Erik and seen so many quality builds his shop has done. I will keep looking around this week a bit more and then start calling shops with BFNY being first to see if they are willing to take on the work. Far from Austin but....ROADTRIP??

  18. I purchased this car in 1963 for $1500. It had a hemi 392? Long ram, dual Rochester 4 barrels. Being I was 17 my dad had to sign for car and the only way he would sign was for dealer to change to a two barrel. They did and it was a dog, but it was a convertible with power swivel seats, beautiful car, girls loved it. Dad made them change to 2 barrel said I couldn't have a race car. In 1965 I traded it for a 1965 coronet 440. My dad said it was a nice car, white wall tires, stick shift. It was a 426 street wedge. When dad and I picked it up, I pulled a hole shot, his only words were "boy you got a lousy race car" too late dad. I should have taken his advice, as I lost my license twice. But I wouldn't trade those memories for anything!
  19. Hi everyone, i have not been on here in a while but occasionally lurk around still. Life keeps happening and I have been staying busy with some career moves at work but its time to get my baby out of the garage and back on the street! I have an 18' Durango RT that is currently my daily driver and I love it but I'd like to get back to the track this spring with my car. Current needs: I have a CEL on for a couple of codes, I can post them up if anyone is interested but I don't remember them off the top of my head. I need to get those figured out and I need tuning to be done. I also need to be able to get it inspected and I think once i clear the CEL's and get a proper tune I will have no issues with that. I currently am looking for a qualified shop to work with for both of those but have not had any luck yet so I am looking for suggestions. Current wants: Depending on what if anything is needed to clear my CEL i'd like to get some work done on my car. For example, if the shop needs to pull the heads then I would probably want to put some ported heads back on, but I am at 555rwhp currently with a mild tune and 5.9 lbs of boost (6lb pulley) and the weak spot in my block are my rods, they are still stock. I have read that close to or at 600rwhp is where I would start to need worrying about throwing a stock rod? If i do get my rods swapped out for some forged I would like to throw an 8lb pulley on and I would also need a new drive shaft and possibly rear axle? My goal is to get up to between 620-650 rwhp without breaking shit. My biggest need at the moment is just finding a reputable shop that I can talk to about all of this and the immediate need is getting my car inspected and back on the road, does anyone have suggestions in or around Texas on who i can work with? I live in Austin, Tx and am willing to drive it to a shop and for the right place i'd consider shipping it. I need a shop with good mechanics that are familiar with Kenne Belle Superchargers ideally and that either do in house tuning or work with someone for remote tuning, ideally this shop has a dyno too. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Current setup is a 392 block with forged pistons and a 2.8l Kenne Belle Supercharger and a mild blower cam.
