In one of the most horrendous cases I have ever reported on, this man, John Ditullio, was arrested for the murder of 17-year-old Kristofer Guy King and a brutal assault on Patricia Wells in New Port Richey, Florida.

Although a trial date has not been set, the District Attorney announced today that he would seek the death penalty against Ditullio. As someone opposed to the death penalty I would urge the court to seriously consider keeping this animal in a cage for the rest of his natural life.
Patricia Wells lived in a trailer park in New Port Richey. Unfortunately, her neighbors were a crew of Skinheads who hated African-Americans and homosexuals. Those inhabiting Wells' trailer epitomize the things these Skinheads hated the most. Patricia had an African-American boyfriend and her son was gay.
In March of last year, there was a "party" going on at the Skinhead place, affectionately dubbed by them as "The Clubhouse." Their swastika and confederate flag banners were flying high over their denison. In the early hours of the morning, Ditullio put on a gas mask and burst into Patricia's trailer where he allegedly assaulted her and then turned on who he believed to be her son, stabbing him to death. The young man was, in fact, a friend of her son's who was simply sleeping over.
The scene was right out of "True Crime Magazine." Yellow Crime Scene taped was put up, and the news cameras were rolling. Few of us will ever forget the footage of a dazed, confused, and badly injured Patricia Wells as she stood before the TV cameras and recounted the terror that had shaken her world.
Stories and alibis were checked in the search for the perpetrator while an entire community watched in disbelief. The police knew "The Club House" well, and the residents of the trailer park had had their share of run-ins with the Skinheads who several claimed "terrorized" the community.
Still, it took months for the authorities to work the case and the suspects to conclude that it was John Ditullio who would be charged in this heinous event.
This wasn't the first encounter that the 44-year-old Wells had with the next-door-neighbors. As a matter of fact, Patricia who works as a housekeeper, had filed several complaints of vandalism and threats against the people residing and visiting there.
No one ever likes reporting on this kind of senseless violence, yet it seems that those covering organized hate groups and racist individuals are bound to have to do more than their share in that area. At the time of this investigation, I had no problem telling every single racist out there that if one of the Skinheads were found to be guilty, they should all share in that guilt. I feel the same way today as I did then. And, once again, I'll make the same observation and statement that I did then...
"As long as the American public remains virtually oblivious to the disease that these rodents are spreading, that disease will continue to flourish and spread. The bright side of all of this is that those who are enlightened to what is happening out there are rapidly becoming avid anti-racists. Given the fact that these bilious hate mongers whine and cry about young ARA members and “antis” being so violent toward them, I have but what thing to say – show me how many of you have been killed, or maimed, by an anti. Show me how many communities have been terrorized by anti-racists.
Young Kristofer Guy King has been taken from us because he dared to befriend those who were considered “race traitors.” Patricia Wells has been brutally scarred because of a life-choice to date outside of her race. The Griffin Park Trailer Park community has been traumatized. The students at the local high school have been brought face to face with the ugliest form that hate takes. When do we say “enough is enough?” When do we step up to the plate and say, “Not in our town, not in our community, not in our country, not in our world.” I think the time is now.
