A military contractor under investigation on allegations he overbilled and did faulty repair work on Navy and Army aircraft has been charged with threatening to kill witnesses in the case, according to a complaint unsealed Thursday.
Keith E. Shaw, owner of Shaw Aero Instruments in Louisville, traveled to Tennessee to buy explosives as part of a plot to blow up his former business partner's plane, according to an affidavit filed in federal court by an investigator for the U.S. Department of Defense.
Even the contractor's son was worried about what this guy could do. Mr. Shaw REALLY didn't want his profits fucked with, apparently. Sounds familiar.
A fourth informant, Shaw's 21-year-old son Nathan, told Camper that in December 2008 Shaw offered him $100,000 to kill Dickinson and Brown and delivered him a .308 sniper rifle, sophisticated scope and tripod, Camper said.
"It was his father's intention to have him use the rifle to kill Dean Dickinson and Andrew Brown," Camper said.
This guy was real old school, even contemplating poisoning his enemy's wine collection or kidnapping an enemy and his daughter, forcing them to fornicate on film and using it for blackmail. I guess no-bid contracts make people do crazy things.
