I have been communicating with one of Duncan's close relatives for a couple weeks. Yesterday, this person shared some information with me that they said I should publish. Today, after getting another confirmation that, yes, I may put this on the blog- they WANT me to put this on the blog... Here it is:
(While these are actual quotes from this person, I have substituted certain words to help keep this person's anonymity. All words inside [brackets] are mine, but those in (parentheses) are this person's words.)
- Joe Duncan, Jr. [Jet's father] "never did anything inappropriate to [his daughters]."
- "He worked 2 and some times 3 jobs to support [his family] and was not around very much because he had 5 kids and [a wife] to support, He never showed [the children] any kind of compassion ( i.e. love) due to being a Vietnam vet, a military man, and working his self to death trying to support [his family]. ( he was never around)."
- "[The mother/wife] on the other hand, was very abusive toward [the children] and [her husband]."
- "all [the father] did was tell [one of his daughters] he loved her, (just as I do with my [children] all the time), he had never said that before and [this daughter] didn't know what to think. so she told [the mother], [and the mother] accused him of her worst fear."
- "so [Joe E. Duncan, Jr.] is guilty of caring for his kids and didn't know how to show [the children] that he loved [them]."
- "Please set these people straight."
You got it!
There have been many discussions about Duncan's father amongst Cellar Dwellers and other internet communities and blogs. Trying to make sense of the much-redacted public documents concerning Duncan's family history have lead to some sinister theories and serious accusations about the father.
Naturally, a family member might deny this. But look again at what this person wants everyone to know, and instead plug some of THESE bits of information into the redacted portions of the documents. Something else becomes clear, does it not?
