Due to the fact that I was fighting to stay out of jail for 120 days, I haven’t had a chance to properly celebrate and write about the fact that the State Police announced that Michael Proctor is under internal affairs investigation.

This is clearly a response to the shocking revelations exposed at Karen Read’s March 12 hearing, revealing that Proctor:

  • Lied to the state grand jury that indicted Karen Read about his relationship with the Albert family
  • Was offered a bribe from Julie Albert as a thank you gift on the day he arrested Karen Read for manslaughter
  • Told Julie Albert to send the bribe to his wife instead of him
  • Asked his sister if Julie Albert could babysit his son 2 weeks before John O’Keefe was killed, proving that he has a personal relationship with the Albert family

Proctor is still on the job and has not been suspended because the State Police don’t really care about appearances. But Internal Affairs doesn’t normally announce when they are investigating one of their own, so clearly it looks like they’re ready to throw Proctor under the bus. They saw the bad publicity and wanted to make it seem like they were doing SOMETHING. But it’s too little, too late. They’ve known all along that Proctor was conflicted, that he lied about what time he towed Karen Read’s car from her parent’s house, that he intentionally misspelled 5 names in one police report, and that found tail light on 5 undocumented trips to 34 Fairview Road in the 3 weeks after John O’Keefe’s death.

Proctor cannot be the only one to go down for this. For starters he also confirmed in front of the federal grand jury that he told Yuri Bukhenik about this relationship with the Alberts. Of course Yuri’s family knows the Alberts well too.

Bukhenik is his immediate boss and chose not to do anything with that information. Proctor has to do what he can to save himself so naturally he’d throw Bukhenik under the bus like this too. It’s really only a matter of time until they all start ratting on each other.

But the most corrupt of them all is Lt. Brian Tully. He is Bukhenik and Proctor’s boss, and the one who signed off on all of their fraudulent reports. In any other line of work a boss would discipline an employee for such an omission. But Tully is well aware of the conflict, and because the State Police have created a culture where no one is allowed to snitch on anyone else, he went along with it. And when I started exposing his corrupt underlings and peacefully protested them on public streets, Tully spent months putting together bogus “witness intimidation” charges against me in order to shut me up. He then conspired with a mentally unwell woman to set me up with charges that he knew weren’t real (assault and battery) in order to have me incarcerated.

Proctor’s lawyer Michael DiStefano issued this press release yesterday:

Trooper Proctor has been fully cooperative in responding to the investigations conducted by the US Attorney’s Office and the Massachusetts State Police Internal Affairs Unit. To be clear, Trooper Proctor remains steadfast in the integrity of the work he performed investigating the death of Mr. John O’Keefe. To the extent that Trooper Proctor’s personal text messages are alluded to in court proceedings regarding Ms. Read, he respectfully submits that the objective investigative steps he and members of his unit took are in no way undermined by the content of the personal messages.

I don’t even know what the second sentence means. His text messages, in which he discusses accepting bribes from witnesses he’s close friends with, do not undermine the “objective investigative steps” him, Bukhenik, and Tully took? What does that even mean?

Notice that nowhere in that word salad press release does he deny ANYTHING that was said in court on Tuesday. Ya know, the stuff he’s under investigation for. He can’t, because it’s undeniable – they have his phone and his grand jury testimony. They know he lied about not knowing the Alberts. They know that Julie Albert offered him a bribe for not investigating Colin, and that he didn’t turn it down. They know that he lied throughout the entire investigation. Attorney DiStefano doesn’t bother combatting any of these things because he knows he can’t.

None of this is news to anyone who’s been following our coverage of this story. We didn’t need these text messages to know that Proctor was conflicted – the evidence was all over social media. His mother called the Alberts her “second family.” But yet for State Police Union President Patrick McNamara released this ridiculous statement in defense of him last August:

The members assigned to the Norfolk County District Attorney’s State Police Detective Unit have been the subject of personal attacks from criminal defense attorneys and the media for doing their jobs. As we all know, State Police Detectives are assigned to each District Attorneys’ Office and to the Office of the Attorney General in Massachusetts.  In homicide investigations, they work at the direction of the District Attorney under M.G.L. c. 38, § 4.  State Police Detectives work under extreme conditions to professionally and comprehensively perform homicide investigations throughout the Commonwealth.  They do this work without favor.  They follow the evidence.

This is true in the case of the investigation into the death of Boston Police Officer John O’Keefe.  State Police Detectives worked as a team to investigate this homicide, which occurred during a severe snowstorm, at the direction of the Norfolk County District Attorney.  They followed the evidence and where it led. The evidence collected was presented by the District Attorney’s Office to an independent Grand Jury.  That Grand Jury – and no one else – issued the charges in connection with the death of Officer John O’Keefe.

Criminal defense attorneys and agenda-based outlets have baselessly smeared our members’ names and reputations. Additionally, there have been gatherings at our members’ homes with the intent to intimidate them and their families for the work performed in this investigation. Trooper Proctor has personally been defamed in the media and in court. This is not only wrong but unacceptable. Harassing and intimidating any witness in a criminal investigation is illegal.  We stand with you, Mike, as we do all of the State Police Detectives.

This case will be tried in court before a judge and a jury, not in the media. I would ask that we all stand with Trooper Proctor and our members assigned to the Norfolk District Attorney’s State Police Detective Unit as they pursue justice for Officer John O’Keefe in the face of unprecedented attacks.

As always stay safe and watch out for each other.


Patrick M. McNamara

This clown.

How dumb does Patrick McNamara look now? He personally vouched for the most transparently corrupt cop in history, cried about “witness intimidation” when people stood up and said something about it, and said Proctor was being “defamed” and “baselessly smeared” because of undeniable evidence that he knew the Alberts.

They followed the evidence where it led? They comprehensively performed a homicide investigation? They didn’t even search inside the house where a dead body was found. They didn’t even bother looking into who plowed Fairview Road that night until I tracked down and interviewed Lucky Loughran. And we now know that the grand jury that McNamara said was responsible for indicting Karen Read, was influenced by LIES told to them under oath by Proctor.

The Massachusetts State Police have had scandal after scandal, yet the corruption never ends. We broke the Ali Bibaud story over 6 years ago and although it led to the resignation of the highest ranking members of the State Police, they all got full pension golden parachutes on the way out. We broke the Leigha Genduso story 6 years ago and the only person that took the fall for hiring a drug dealing money launderer was her. There is an institutional rot that can only be fixed if they take it all down and rebuild. They need an audit more than anyone, because Proctor, Bukhenik, and Tully wouldn’t have done what they did if they felt like anyone else in the State Police would’ve stopped them.

  1. I’m sorry but the whole MSP knew about this and not 1 of them had the guts to stand up & do the right thing. It’s cover for your brother in blue no matter what. How do you trust ANY of them now?

    1. Trust is BROKEN…why am I not surprised at the depth of this outrageous betrayal and ABUSE of taxpayer funds.

      Our money was abused by those we funded to keep us all safe from criminal behavior YET they stole both our trust and our money to engage in FRAUD and ABUSE!

      1. The governor continues to steal our money to house and support illegal aliens,while our poor citizens and Veterans are kicked to the curb. Disgusting crooks should be thrown out of office.

  2. You need to be at the next MSP presser. An ask McNamara does he still feel that Proctor was defamed an harassed. By law abiding citizens. Who unlike him could see clearly how corrupt Proctor is.

  3. You have taken down the State Police so many times now and always have come with receipts and been correct. When will they learn? I am 100% (as you are) for backing the Blue but the corrupt Blue needs to go, preferably straight to jail.

    1. Let’s not forget John is blue too. If we don’t have his back nobody does. Certainly not the state police or even the Boston police. (who don’t have the balls to stand up for their brother)
      The lack of respect Proctor through his attorney shows by not calling him officer John O’Keefe but calling him Mr. is disgusting!

  4. We are moving into the age of Aquarius which comes with a lot of death, rebirth and growth. Meaning things are starting to change in all areas, and the karmic wheels of justice will be working very swiftly to bring balance back where it belongs. People like proctor and the mcalberts that do selfish shameful things should/will be brought to justice and thier wrongs made right. Anyone who is not right with themselves and others would be smart to start trying to make things right before karma does it for them. Of your a genuinely good person you should have no worries but if you do things like conspire to hurt and ruin innocent people and lives than you better start righting your wrongs asap.

    1. I hope you are right….but I look at the corrupt biden crime family still filling their pockets with $$ and continuing to do their thing. The DOJ covering for them….

  5. I have to admit at some points I thought they were going to win but thank god you kept going. My fear was you would say “its not worth it” especially after jail. The fact you kept going shows how strong you are. I admire you so much and wish you everything you deserve like the HUGE payout you will get!

  6. Justice has finally started to show up.

    So Yuri knows the Alberts too. Shouldn’t he be part of that internal affairs investigation?

    Prediction, for starters, the MSP will no longer protect Proctor. He’s just not worth it.

    Then Yuri and Tully will face the same consequences and the MSP will say that the three of them colluded to destroy evidence, manufactured evidence, etc. They can make it like this one group worked independently and dishonestly.

    But back to Yuri, is he still out on the streets looking to harass people and find those that called out LP?

    And more good news is the Boston media, except channel 5, is finally getting the OK to start covering the story in more details. Maybe they realize now that they don’t want to be associated with a corrupt sitting District Attorney.

    Good Job Aidan.. You took a complicated case and taught us all the details in a very methodical way.

  7. The Boston police should be ashamed of how they tucked tucked tail during this,I wouldn’t want anyone from the bpd and state police watching my back,there all a bunch of cowards and criminals, proctor,McCabe Collin and Brian Albert all need to be arrested and charged
    Karen read and Aiden need to plan civil lawsuits and get ready to be rich

  8. Does anyone actually trust MSP Internal Affairs to do a proper investigation? I certainly do not. An independent agency needs to get in there and clean house.

  9. Grab your popcorn as it’s just a matter of time before the Canton Crew starts ratting on each other to save their own sorry arses.

  10. Been following this since Aidan posted the Google search heard round the world

    The intensity grew when morons like Jen M and Jillian started spouting off instead of opening their mouths for anything else but their respective male providers dicks

    Finally the indictments will be coming… it will hilarious watching them all eat their own like the scumbag maggots they are

  11. If this can happen to a Boston Police Officer then none of us are safe.

    When this is all over we need to demand changes in the MSP

    Maybe the MSP needs an independent audit

    1. My mind is blown thinking how could anyone leave someone out in the cold to die like that…beaten and left out to die like he was nothing….and by A fellow cop even….I just don’t get how you could be so cruel. Its unfathomable

      1. That’s how awful the McAlberts, Proctors, Bukheniks,Tully’s, Morrissey’s, Raffertey’s, Berkowitz’s and the rest of the Canton PD are.

      2. I know, me too. I talk about this case with my boyfriend and my friends and I cry so hard when talking about how they just left him to die outside in a blizzard and beaten so badly 😭😭😭😭😭😭. How could they do that???? 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

      1. all towns imho, once they write a report that’s it, no matter how wrong they got it or if they misunderstood a conversation it is written like the gospel, they never back track, they try to fit the puzzle pieces , not honest, not safe for anyone….

  12. Brian Albert got this whole coverup going – they all seem to kneel to this guy
    He needs to be held accountable

    1. He/they ALL should presonally refund/repay ALL the taxpayer funds co-opted to corruptly aid their conspiracy to COVER UP John’s murder and TO FRAME Karen Read.

    2. But the question remains…..what dirt does he have on them all. That might even be mire shocking.

      1. Brian is Deep State. There’s info out there. He’s not on the Soros, Obama, Clinton level but he is involved. He most likely walks.

        1. Armchair opinion: Hes been a pitbull crooked cop that’s been framing innocent people for political means for decades. Piggy Morrisey and NDAO have appreciated his hard work

  13. But do we really trust an internal investigation by a corrupt agency ? Esp. one under the watchful eye of a Governor who was the AG when all of this took place?

    1. I certainly don’t trust healey. Isn’t it telling that the legislature just ignored the fact that while she was in office she used her position to engage in sexual relationships with female state troopers.
      This whole state government needs to be thrown out and start new.
      Maybe the DOJ is investigating corrupt maura too? That would be sweet!

  14. I’ll kinda be sad when all of this is over as I have enjoyed your reporting. The American people deserve to feel safe and protected by law enforcement. My husband is a retired detective Sgt for 28 years. Some of the shit his co-workers got away with was simply disgusting. He really wanted to stay another 3 or 4 years ( as we have kids in college) but he couldn’t take it anymore. I felt bad for him as he LOVED his job. He left hating it. So keep on exposing these POS’S they must be held accountable. And GOD REST OFFICER JOHN O’KEEFE. may the good lord keep him safely in his arms.

      1. Aidan is a master at what he does and isn’t afraid of the truth!
        Maybe journalism will get back to its roots of reporting the truth and exposing corruption, thanks to Aidan!

  15. I find it insulting and confusing the he is never adressed as Officer O’Keefe by anybody on the CW side

  16. It comes too easy for them. Karl Dugal that jewelry your wife is wearing belongs to Nick Fiorillo ‘s wife. He didn’t buy it. Karl Dugal, oh man. Little do you know, we got something in store for you. Man. The Jesus of Journalism is on fire.

  17. The MSP NEEDS an outside investigation. Not their own internal affairs division who routinely finds in favor of the troopers they graduated classes with! This is absolutely disgusting. The corruption is unremitting. 6 years from now Aidan, you’ll be saying “6 years ago I brought down Troopers Proctor, Tully and their boy Yuri in the now Nolle Proseque Commonwealth v. Karen Read case”. Right? How good will that feel? You are one hell of a fighter, sir…and you deserve all the fruits you have falling from that tree you shook! You spent 60 days on jail bc the MSP AND the Norfolk District Attorneys Office perpetrated fraudulent indictments against you and then convinced a sick demented woman “Aidan bad Alberts good” and conspired with her to file false charges against you bc she fell back on a cushion! This is utterly ridiculous! Be patient brother! Bc with every court date going forward, there will be another pay day for you! Stay strong and don’t ever stop! You have NO QUIT!!!!!

  18. I truly believe in Karma!!

    This INTERNAL investigation is nothing more than a PR campaign ….not they are looking only into a Breach of Policy, he is still on full pay and free as a bird to fit up more innocent people!!

    The Internal Investigation will find no wrong doing like they always do……..but hey Proctor the Feds aren’t done with you yet!!

    If the damage on Karen Reads car is not consistent with hitting John and Johns injuries are not consistent with being hit by a car …..guess what Proctor …..they have got you by the balls for PLANTING EVIDENCE, DESTROYING EVIDENCE, COLLUDING WITH CRIMINALS, INTERFERRING IN AN INVESTIGATION, PERJURY, WIRETAPPING,FRAUD and anything else they can think of!!

    Your buddy DA Michael Morrissey has been reported to the BAR by an independent attorney. He can’t help you now!!

    Just wait until they find out about him personally contacting the Jail to force them to hand over client , attorney privileged calls, when they refused he sent your other buddy Tully to strong arm them and still they refused, so then it was Special Prosecutor Mello’s turn to go to court to get it COURT ORDERED ….and they refused!!

    I guess Meatball Morrissey hasn’t quite grasped what CONFLICT OF INTEREST means Eh?? And that’s the very reason that Yellow Mello was hired in the first place!!

    Oh and let’s not leave Yellow Mello out of this …..he contacted the PD to get innocent people arrested by weaponising the law ….charging people with federal crimes of Witness Intimidation because Chris Albert didn’t like the truth about him killing a man coming out, not paying taxes and committing PERJURY to get his business licence on more than one occasion!!

    Do you think Levy will let that fly??

    Now back to the other officers who were directed to intimidate people for signing a Petition for a police Audit in order to shut them up.

    I have to say though the HONEY TRAP is what is going to expose good ole boy Tully …..even that didn’t have the desired effect did it …..because Aiden just carried on writing about you all from behind bars!!

    The clear corruption was exposed and the exact opposite of what you expected happened ……people no longer feared you …..the crowds got bigger, the message was spread further and now its a runaway train without any brakes!!

    You took OFFICER John O’Keefe’s life …..but from beyond the grave HE EXPOSED YOU ALL!!


  19. Even if Karen read’s case is dismissed. Where is the justice and truth for John o’keefe?! The house was sold! Evidence was erased. A shame and a sham! Rip John.

  20. I can’t stand that side keeps calling John MR o’Keefe instead of officer and poke a hole Procter trooper.

  21. I have not followed this case closely, but can someone answer this question? Can the State Police and others be corrupt, inept, etc. and Karen Read still be guilty? I don’t need to hear all the details and theories, but I would like an answer to this question because it seems like the case has become one divided into she did it or was framed. OJ was guilty but got off. Can Read be guilty but still wind up having the case thrown out because of improper investigation and the like. Is this a plausible statement?

    1. There is no way on Earth Aunty Bev is going to throw this case out.

      She is the one that ultimately makes the decision on all of the motions filed by the Defence.

      DA Morrissey never in a million years will withdraw the case …..not after he did his piece to camera defending the ‘witnesses’ and assigning guilt to Karen and basically said that the Defence attorneys were liars

      There is mounds of evidence to prove that Karen didn’t do this yet Aunty Bev is still ploughing ahead……she is the only one now that can save the House Of Cards from collapsing.

      That is exactly why she is in charge of this case!! It’s never been about Justice for John it’s always been about convicting Karen Read.

      Aunty Bev was never supposed to be at the helm, it was supposed to be the original judge but she was in charge of the rotations …..took him off the case and put herself on it!!

      From the day she took over, she has never once ruled in the Defence’s favour. She has done everything in her power to stop them getting the exculpatory evidence they need.

      At one point in the case the Defence had to go to the SJC to get her rulings overturned ….but there’s only so many times you can do that unfortunately.

      Aunty Bev is related to the Mcabes and was asked to recuse herself when it came to light….she refused!!

      The Defence were given just 6 days to go through 3,074 documents provided to them by the Feds which were under strict seal meaning only the appointed attorneys could view them. Bare in mind that from the start of this case over the past 2 years the entirety of this case is 3,100 documents.

      Aunty Bev told the Defence that they also had to have their motions and rule 17’s also written up in those 6 days also.

      At the prior hearing to the one on the 12th March she told both the CW and Defence that they would have the entire day on the 12th to argue their motions. Which meant that the Defence also had to prepare their arguements as well as the motions and Rule 17’s ……Jackson and Little also flew in from California…..only to arrive at court and be told they had 10 MINUTES to argue their case!!

      Now why did she just give them 10 mins for 3,074 documents from the FEDS??

      There is a plan in place, to convict Karen in order to stop the Federal Investigation into the DA and his counterparts so that their dirty secrets aren’t exposed and they can carry on as before!!

      I have no doubt whatsoever that when it comes to trial …..Aunty Bev will rule that the incendiary evidence the Defence have is not relevant and will forbid them from mentioning it to the jurors!!

      They are all trying to save their own bacon and that is why be in no doubt that Aunty Bev will never in a million years stop this trial from going ahead ….when Karen is found not guilty …..they will just say she got away with murder and the case is closed!

  22. Not sure if you already reported on this or not, TB, but at this years annual SPAM meeting (MSP union meeting) in January, Bukkake asked the union to pay for Lizzie’s attorney ($6500). They agreed. FYI.
