      CALLED OUT INFORMATION SERVICE

      The Sacramento Bee has breaking news that directly links two men to the
      murder of two gay men and last month's arsons in San Francisco.
      The two suspects in California also a linked to the World Church of the
      Creator, to which Benjamin Nathaniel Smith, who murdered United Methodist
      Won-Joon Yoon last Sunday and Ricky Birdsong a week ago Friday. The Bee
      reports "Agents are also investigating whether a larger conspiracy involving
      members of the World Church is at the core of the recent spate of hate
      crimes in Northern California and elsewhere. Church leaders have denied
      their involvement in any of the attacks but have refused to condemn them.
      Anti-Semitic hate literature was found at various Redding area sites in
      April, including a local high school, an event that officials said was the
      first such leafletting in memory."

      Described below are three stories. The Sacramento Bee has many more stories
      related to the Synagogue fires and will certainly be continuing information
      on the slaying of the gay couple too as a result of the connections between
      these two crimes and the possible connection to the Midwestern crimes of
      last weekend.

      REDDING, Calif. (July 10, 1999 - Two brothers suspected of killing a gay
      couple near this rural Northern California town have also been linked to
      arson attacks at three Sacramento synagogues that caused more than $1
      million in damages, police said.

      Benjamin Matthew Williams, 31, and James Tyler Williams, 29, were arraigned
      Friday on charges of receiving stolen property that prosecutors said was
      linked to slaying victims Gary Matson and Winfield Scott Mowder in Happy
      Valley.

      Suspects in synagogue attacks had stern childhood
      By Sam Stanton and Gary Delsohn Bee Staff Writers

      GRIDLEY, Butte County -- They were the product of a sternly religious
      upbringing so stifling that neighbors worried whether
      the two bright, handsome boys would ever have much of a life of their own.

      Authorities believe the Williams brothers are responsible for the July 1
      slayings of Gary Matson, 50, and Winfield Mowder, 40,
      who lived in a small house in a rural area south of Redding known as Happy
      Valley.

      Sources say investigators also found literature from the Illinois-based
      World Church of the Creator, an anti-Semitic hate group
      that has been a focus of the FBI's synagogue probe. A former member of the
      group killed himself last week after going on a
      two-state shooting spree against Jews, Asian Americans and African Americans
      that killed two men and wounded nine others.
      The Anti-Defamation League has called the group one of the most dangerous
      and fastest-growing hate groups in the nation.

      Synagogue arson suspects held: Pair of white supremacists is suspected of
      slaying gay couple in Shasta County

      By Gary Delsohn and Sam Stanton
      Bee Staff Writers
      (Published July 10, 1999)

      <SNIP>
      Shasta County sheriff's officials said they knew of no past criminal
      activity by the two, described by neighbors as reclusive
      "Bible thumpers" who played loud religious music at all hours and shared a
      house with their parents, who are retired farmers.

      Sources said a search of the brothers' Shasta County home and a storage
      locker rented to them turned up a huge cache of
      arms, including AK-47s, M-16s and 100-round magazines for such rifles.

      A source also said a key piece of evidence was found at the Williams home
      that appears to be linked to the arsons. A torn
      piece of paper found at Congregation B'nai Israel after it was torched
      matched the tear on a piece found at the home, the
      source said.
