Who Framed Harlow Cuadra


Why was the home of Harlow and Joe/Trent in Virginia Beach searched? Inquiring minds want to know. There is just way too many interesting plot twist to this story and I will try to address them all in this post. We really want to know why the affidavit for the search warrant remains sealed. And it does not look like that will change any time soon. It would appear that the courts in Luzerne County have an agenda against Harlow. And it is hidden in the affidavits sealed away from us to hide the truth


First we shall talk about motive and opportunity. So lets see who had one and why? The first person to come to mind when this story broke was Grant Roy. But as it is unlikely he was responsible for this as he was instrumental in the settlement negotiations and was one of the initiators of it as well. Sean Lockhart/Brent Corrigan falls in the same category the same can be said for Lee Bergeron as well. These are the people form LSG Media and they entered into a binding settlement with Cobra video on the 20th day of January 2007. With the settlement in place for them to want or have someone murder Bryan Kocis would be pointless. The agreement with the two companies would succeed Bryan in death.
The other person who would have motive was the boy that Bryan pleads guilty to video tapping when he was underage. There is also the possibility of a disgruntled former Cobra Video model killing Bryan. The list really can go on but there is just one problem with that.
Bryan was a solitary man and he had few close friends and would only open the door to his home if he was expecting you or he knew you were coming over. There were no signs of forced entry to his home and his body showed no defensive wounds. So the police assume he knew and trusted his killer. There was an open bottle of wine found at the scene and the apparent murder weapon was found as well. There was a fire set to destroy evidence and the door was left open to feed the fire air. This person did not want to get caught and they truly wanted Bryan dead. With the method of the killing the killer would be covered with blood so they had to spend time in the home to clean their self up before they left.So you ask how does Harlow fit into all this? Well to tell you the truth just a bit to well if you ask me. So shall we see how Harlow fits. This is the real interesting part, a models picture shows up on a supposed E-mail sent to an "associate" of Bryan. This E-mail alludes to a supposed meeting with a new model by the name of "Drake" at 7:30PM on the 24Th of January 2007. After the reports of Bryan’s murder hit the Internet, it soon was a buzz with people claiming they know who did it and why and what for. News stories were being updated and quoted on a regular basis and theories flew in all directions. It was a feeding Frenzy for new and updated information it was scandalous and salacious all at the same time. It was better than TV.

Then we got a break in the story; there was a person of interest. And quite interesting at that I might add. A guy who might go by the name "Drake" was supposed to meet with Bryan the night he was killed. And now the search is on to find out who this "Drake" guy is. Within 24 hours we knew how old he was where he was from what he did for a living where he lived and how big his cock was. Oh and yes we knew his name too. If you need any thing done just ask the gays. I love Kathy Griffin.
His name is Harlow Cuadra and he has his own video production company named Boybatter and he is doing quite well from what I can see and Harlow has other financial interest as well. The Times-Leader reports that Harlow refused to give his last name and said he "freaked out" when he learned that his picture is linked to a murder investigation. In the span of 8 days Harlow’s life went form one of fast cars and hot men to shear panic. I guess I would freak out too. Harlow has stated from the beginning that he was not in Dallas Township on the evening of January 24Th 2007. He has stated that he was in Virginia with a client for three hours on the night in question. The Luzerene County courts issue 3 sealed search warrants plus 3 other warrants for phone and electronic communications on the 29Th of January. Yet the police still secured a search warrant to search the home of Harlow and his partner Joe 10 days before they even knew his name. The police and SWAT team practically destroyed their home in a pre dawn raid using tear gas and a battering ram to break down the door. By an act of divine intervention Harlow and Joe were not home at the time. It has been speculated that the reason the search was at 5:00AM on a Saturday morning was that no one in the house was supposed to survive the search. The swat team was supposed to have killed Harlow and Joe thus making the case a done deal for Luzerne County Pa.
What has happened to this country? What happened to innocent until proven guilty? I have been following this story since the beginning and I can tell you there have been many theories involving this case. We all speculated and theorized from the beginning.
The one thing for sure is Harlow fell out of favor as a subject quite early on. You ask the question why not Harlow? For starters why would Harlow model for Bryan Kocis when he already has his own production company? He is one of the top stars at Boybatter. Another reason is that Harlow does not fit the bill as a Cobra Model. Bryan’s models were very young looking twink boys. Harlow is not by any stretch of the imagination a twink boy. Harlow is more the Falcon Studios type of model. He was courted by Falcon Studio early on but declined because he was already a star with Boybatter. Was Harlow set up from the beginning of all this? Well from the looks of things it would appear so. Harlow’s picture that was used in the "supposed" E-mail that Bryan sent is from Harlow’s Myspace page yet you can only access that picture with a Myspace account. Another interesting twist is that he met Brent Corrigan for the first time in Las Vegas at the AVN Expo convention where he, Grant and Brent took a picture together. This is another tie in to the case. But Harlow never did not meet Bryan who was also in attendance with one of his Cobra models Aaron Phelps.
Bryan was in meetings most of the trip with the members of LSG Media working on a settlement agreement.
There were some questionable things early on that occurred, that for most people would have sealed Harlow’s fate but it all fell into place just way to easy. January 14th 2007 Mark @boybatter sends out an E-mail heralding their meeting with Brent Corrigan and the possibility of them working together.


but 1 day later.
January 15th 2007: at 7:52pm Pacific Standard Time Bryan E-mails Cad about meetings with Grant not working out, he says "Grant is actually coming over later tonight, Sean and Grant will be here tomorrow to meet with me."Again, according to Zane's comment, Grant and Bryan did meet up that evening and "they had their meeting for 20min or so."


January 20th 2007 The Cobra LSG settlement is signed and Bryan is murdered 4 days later.





This is the plot of a great movie but the problem was that this was all too easy. We found information on Harlow like someone left us a breadcrumb trail. Then the theory of him being setup to take the fall for this came to be. And it really started to make sense that he was not the one that did this. There was just no viable reason for him to do such a thing when he did not even know Bryan Kocis.




We tried the hit-man theory but the murder was too sloppy for a hit. This murder was personal and it showed from the beginning. The timing of the murder was just wrong. It was mid evening on a Wednesday night between 7:ooPM and 8:30PM in a residential neighborhood. Someone would surly have seen something or someone that would raise suspicion. The method of the murder was just too risky for any hit man with any common sense to attempt. Plus the crucial point here is who would Bryan’s murder benefit? Not LSG Media the settlement was a done deal. Not Harlow because he did not even know the victim.




Who ever killed Bryan Kocis would have intimate knowledge of the settlement and who was seen with who and they would also be aware that the only neighbor that Bryan had, who he was some what close to was out of town. This person had to know that if they just showed up Bryan would let them in.



New theory



But wait what if the killer was already there and had been for a few days. Someone that Bryan trusted and spent time with on a regular basis. That would explain why there was no forced entry it to the home and why they only saw a car leaving the house. This would also explain the emails from drake to set up the appointment and the e-mail to the associate and the picture of Harlow on Bryan’s computer. Who ever killed Bryan was there the whole time. No one showed up to his home on the 24th because they were already there they just left on the 24th after they set the fire. As far as we know Bryan was only in contact with 3 other people in the 4 days after he arrived home from San Diego. But who is to say that he did not have someone at the house with him the whole time helping him get caught up on business stuff. Do we know if he had someone house sit for the two weeks he was gone or at least check up on things? This settlement was a life changing thing for Bryan and I would think he would be more focused on it than meeting a new model. The model theory is just too far removed from reality to really think about.



But the fact remains that Harlow is a pawn in a sick game of chess.







Damn it I know I’m right about this I can just feel it in my bones.

  3. Groan...

    I'll post more later, as I'm in a hurry to get to a meeting, but I think you'll all know what direction I'm gonna go with a post like "Who Framed Harlow Cuadra."

    Vomit.

    OK I will just set this much out. We know very little of the REAL evidence in this case; I'd say 90% of the REAL evidence in this case is being tightly guarded by the Penn state police. And was used to support a search warrant affidavit against Harlow, which they REFUSE to reveal, thats how dynamite the stuff is.

    As to why Harlow butt in not in jail at this very moment. sigh, I wish I knew the answer to that one myself, but I do not know. I can speculate on some likely possible reasons the police are being so unhurried to do this, with Harlow's innocent NOT in any being one of them.

    The affidavit would have been opened had that been the case, and the cops decided to drop him as a suspect.

    Another point: Since we lack this great approxiamte 90% of the total evidence to discuss...we've fallen back on wild specuation in past weeks. The comical "Weekend at Bernie's" theory of the crime, for instance, as well as the more recent "Grand Conspiracy by every elected offiical in Luzerne County" theory.

    Natually, such wild speculation takes us away from more logical scenarios, such as Harlow did it. Period.

    One last point. Everyone keeps saying "but Harlow was soooo successful, he had no motive!" Sheesh. You know, in the absense of 90% of the evidence, I fear we have all no choice but to over fixate on the 10% we do know. And part of that 10% is what we know of the parties motives.

    And most people here have WAY over fixated on motive. To the exclusion of all common sense. You people, I swear, I read what you guys write, and I have to say, most of you have motive-on-the-brain syndrome.

    Let me tell you guys a bit about "motive." Motive is, by necessity, a SUBJECTIVE thing. In other words, we can never TRULY know what someone's motive is unless we can do a vulcan mind meld on them, and read their thoughts!

    Of course we can try and put ourself in a person's shoes and try to guess at their motive...but barring being a mind reader, we can only guess..we can never be sure. That's just the nature of "motive."

    Which brings up an important fact about motive...it can, AND OFTEN IS, easily concealed by the perpetrator of a crime.

    Of course, there are signs when a perp tries to cover up a motive. He'll dissemble and mislead, in order to conceal it from others. For example, claiming someone else owns a company...when in fact YOU are the registered owner of the corporation!

    OR saying business dealings "came to nothing" when in fact they were going full steam ahead only 5 days before a murder.

    When you see little lies and dissemblings like this, this is a CLEAR sign of someone trying to hide something...quite likely a hidden motive of some sort.

    Well now...I got all worked up and now I'm late for my meeting...LOL! Don't really have much more to say now, I guess....that about covers it. Heh.

    I'll have MUCH more to say when the arrest is finally made. Gawd knows when...sigh...

  4. Do we know if he had someone house sit for the two weeks he was gone or at least check up on things?

    too true ... CAD - any ideas? i'm thinking you'd know the answer to that...

    I donno Mr Elms .... harlows cashing in on this now ... and a bitta burnt carpet is nothing ... i'm sure sales and escort booking are up ... I gotta agree that this whole timeline holds the key - maybe its all of the factors included and maybe a comedy of errors occurred where everyone did their bit to create this result.. maybe the fire was lit by someone other than the murderer... still gotta question the 28 stab wounds..

    This really does make for a great mystery triller... with some mighty interesting and hot characters... the narrative is already here Mr Elms ...

    you really do rock ! i hang for these updates

  5. Well I don’t think the company thing is a definitive reason to hang Harlow. It does not say that he is the owner it says he is the President. There is a big difference there look at most corporations they have owners and they have presidents as well as stockholders and board members. The fact that they were working on a business arrangement with LSG Media is not definitive either. The Boybatter E-mail was sent on the 14th of January this was also during the settlement conference in Las Vegas and San Diego when Cad received a E-mail from Bryan saying that the negotiations were not going well. So maybe the deal with Boybatter was a backup plan. Or it could be a possible ploy to get Bryan to be more agreeable with the terms for the benefit of LSG Media. We don’t know all the details but in business you always need a backup plan or a source of leverage. That source was Boybatter. It appears that it worked the settlement was reached. It was a little underhanded but it appears to have worked. You also say that the whole motive thingy is subjective and I am agreeable with you on that but Harlow has an alibi for the day and time of the murder. So I think he should be ruled out. I am agreeable that the police are dragging their feet on this but I feel its because they don’t have anything solid to go on. The search warrant affidavits remain sealed because the only thing they most likely have is Harlow’s picture and a suspected E-mail. If such an E-mail does exist then find out who Bryan sent it to. Also they need to find out who sent the original E-mail to Bryan with “Drakes” picture. That will solve this case and we will have the killer. Personally I think we are going in the totally wrong direction on this. To much focus is being paid to all the wrong things. The murderer was close to the victim and probably right under the noses of the police, and they are just waiting for them to slip up.

  6. Don't know why you can't see the San Diego people's motives for possibly wanting Kocis dead. It is not really possible to eliminate anyone as a suspect. Consider:

    1. It is easy to enter into a settlement agreement to work with a guy you hate if you know in advance that the guy you hate won't be alive for you to have to work with him.

    2. The Porn/Death Marketing Strategy is at this point a finely tuned instrument. I would refer you to "NICK", the original Fort Bragg Soldier who was found dead in an abandoned quarry outside of Montreal. Immediately after Nick and his Friend were found dead, his Porn Studio released a Porn Video featuring the two guys. There is still video of Nick available now on nextdoorstudios.com's various websites. I'm curious if there could be a connection between Cobra Video and Nextdoorstudios.com

    3. I find it totaly unbelievable that anyone would approach Bryan Kocis's house in Dallas Township given Kocis' obvious "connections" there. No one other than a hired killer (or some Luzerne County insider) would ever have considered approaching Bryan Kocis' house. Even today we have Harlow's PI being booted out of town and a poster here saying he was followed by cops for just driving by Kocis' house.

    The Tipping Point directing attention BACK to Luzerne County is that they put Harlow's picture out to the press when they clearly already knew who Harlow was. WHY?

    Why would the police blast a kid's picture all over the national media and the internet when they already knew who the kid was? ANSWER? Because they assumed that Harlow would panic and run or that Harlow would panic and get killed in the search of his House.

    Luzerne County knows that they can convict anybody of killing Kocis in Luzerne County. At this point, Luzerne County is planning to prosecute Harlow and Harlow's lawyers are making it clear that it is not going to be easy to get Harlow into Luzerne County nor will it be easy to put Harlow on Trial without Luzerne County's politics being examined in minute detail by a NATIIONAL press.

    Harlow has not been arrested because at this point prosecuting Harlow will definitely bring even more attention to Luzerne County politics.

  7. "Why would the police blast a kid's picture all over the national media and the internet when they already knew who the kid was?"

    I never heard this. What's you source for this claim?

    AFAIK the police were clueless as to the identity of "Drake" until a anonymous poster at Jason Curious miraculously recognized him. Who then tipped off the police...and (unfortuately, IMO) the readership on Jason's blog.

    Had the media not tipped off Harlow that his pic had been IDed, the raid two days later might have been way more productive.

  8. you accept then that it was possible for the Luzerne County police to get the authority to seach Harlow's house in Virginia only THREE DAYS after they allegedly discovered who Harlow was.

    BTW,
    San Diego, CA (Dirk Yates); Fort Bragg, NC (activeduty.com); and Norfolk, Va (boybatter.com) are all big military towns. My understanding is that the Canadian Porn Company that owns Next Door Studios (at one time anyway) had some kind of interest/partnership with Dirk Yates and activeduty.com. wasn't there something inthe press about Chi Chi LaRue's company buying Dirk Yates?

  9. "you accept then that it was possible for the Luzerne County police to get the authority to seach Harlow's house in Virginia only THREE DAYS after they allegedly discovered who Harlow was."

    Well, actually I don't know, really; I'm no expert on the mechanics of police getting a search warrant. But this was a gruesome murder case so 3 days does not sound out of the ordinary to me...in any case, I'm not sure the point you are getting at here.

    I DO remember back on Jason Curious, when the press first talked to Harlow, we were all AMAZED Harlow had not been contacted by police...that the media had got to him before the cops! We all commented that we felt the cops in Luzerne Cty were being too slow to pursue the case, to allow this to happen.

    And then (unbeknownst to us until WEEKS later!) they do "contact" Harlow...in the form of a SWAT raid on his home!

    So it may not be that the police were all that slow...just that we over at Jason Curious, a hive mind of bloggers and commenters behind our computer screens...were just amazingly fast.

  10. So are now going to Implicate Chi Chi Larue in this? I do believe that Dirk Yates is under the Cahnnel one umbrella. I Believe the men you refer to who were found dead in the quarry in Canada were trying to ride and ditch. They bailed without paying their Cab fare and jumped a fence at night unaware that there was a cliff on the other side. The fall caused their death. i Believe they were supposed to preform at a club across the street from the quarry. They were just thought to be missing the studio was not aware of there deaths until sometime later.
    As far as the Luzerne County police knowing who Harlow was. It is possible but I doubt it. You have to understand that this is a little town and the police department is not that sophisticated. They use the state police for most things. As for the private detective being run out of town and the poster Mike who was followed for miles this just goes to show they are trying to hide something. Harlow was just to convienant for them to lay this on. This case stinks to high heaven. There is something they are trying to hide and I’m sure of it. Someone will spill it I know this.

  11. There is a shit load of military/DOD/National Security related stuff in Virginia - especially Northern Virginia and the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area. I can't imagine Luzerne County just being allowed to search any house they dream up in Virginia without there being a certain amount of time to get State/Federal clearance to do so.

    NOTE: It takes a certain amount of TIME/DAYS to coordinate a Raid by the FBI and police from two different states. It just does not sound like something that could happen in three days.

    As I recall, a lawyer for the San Diego people is on record as saying that his people knew the name of the "model" Kocis was expecting.

  12. "As I recall, a lawyer for the San Diego people is on record as saying that his people knew the name of the "model" Kocis was expecting. "

    Well, Brent's civil lawsuit attorney said that they had info on the person in the "Drake" photo, and was going to supply it to the police as soon as they had gotten a criminal attorney.

    According to the mini blog interview done by Jody Wheeler (since removed) Brent recognized Harlow instantly, when the "Drake" photo went public.

    Brent then tells the police all he knows about Harlow aka Drake, but only after getting a criminal lawyer (for obvious reasons). This seems to have taken a day or two.

    So, the police got Harlow IDed thru Brent too...although it's not clear exactly who gave the police the name first: Brent or the anon Jason poster.

    I can't remember how many days it was from the time the Drake photo went out, and the day of the SWAT raid. Elm's timeline probably has that info. But I do recall the anon Jason poster IDed Harlow for us all online in a VERY short period of time. And notified the police immediately.

    And from Jody Wheeler, we know Brent tipped off the police too, after only a couple day delay in getting a criminal lawyer.

    So, the police had a good amount of time in which they had Harlow's name, location, connection to the crime, etc, in order to get the warrant.

    What futzed things up, IMO, was the reporter getting to Harlow 2 days ahead of the police.

  14. The members of LSG did not talk to the police until the 29th of January I believe. If you recall they wanted to get legal counsel before talking to the police. This was taken from Jody Wheelers deleted blog post “Two Pair”
    "Harlow and Joe really fucked it all up," he said.
    Puzzled, he told me "Joe" is Harlow's boyfriend. Last year, before Sean flew to New York to film the -other- short, during either an IM chat or a phone call, he mentioned that a company out of Norfolk, Virginia wanted to pay him a huge some of money to star in their movies. While he was interested in the deal, he was also very skeptical. The money would've helped pay the attorney, but the kind of money the outfit was offering was pretty much unheard of. Too good to be true. Sean didn't mention anything more about it. I didn't think anything more about it until the police released a picture of "Drake" and "Drake" turned out to be an escort from Norfolk, Virginia, who turned out to be a Harlow Cuadra who owned an escort agency in Nortfolk, Va, who also owned an adult film company in...Norfolk, Virginia.
    "Same guy from last year," Sean confirmed.


    They knew the name after they saw his picture. So the police did not know Harlow’s name before they posted his picture on the Internet on the 2nd of February as a person of interest with the name “Drake”? all the search warrants were issued on the 29th of January. Harlow was identified at the earliest on the 2nd of February but we figured it out on the 5th or 6th of February. So there must be another search warrant issued after they identified Harlow. He spoke to the news media on the 8th and the 9th of February and their home was searched on the 10th of February @ 5:00am. So the police either had a blank warrant and filled it in with his information or they got one issued after he was identified. The police still have not spoken to Harlow but he remains a person of interest.

    Even after Harlow was identified the police still said that they were not going to go to Virginia to talk to him. They wanted Harlow to go to Luzerne County PA to talk to the authorities. I guess Harlow was a little to smart for that. And he got a good attorney who won’t let the police talk to his client. They want Harlow in Luzerne County bad. So bad that they went to Virginia with a search warrant and a swat team to search his home at 5:00am. Did they want to scare him and make him go on the run? Or did the police want an excuse to kill Harlow in a blaze of bullets. Wonder what that was all about? . That just leads me to believe that they did not have his picture in an E-mail. They probably just got it off the hard drive
    I still feel like they are just trying to railroad him for this murder. Looks like a simple little dinner caused all this mess for Harlow.
    I made a correction to my post for clarity.

  15. the lawyer for the people in San Diego who said that his clients could ID the model Kocis was expecting DID say that his clients wanted to get criminal lawyers before THEY spoke to the police. However, you are assuming that lawyer did not himself tell the police himself what he claimed his clients knew. The lawyer could have told police something under the understanding that it was off th record because he was not his client's criminal lawyer.

    The banner on Harlow's website suggesting that Harlow will be working with Brent Corrigan translates (to me anyway) as Harlow telling Corrigan that he (Harlow) knows that Corrigan gave police his (Harlow's) name. You have to look at the banner and recognize the humor and the very clear hint that Harlow is putting out. For example, Harlow is saying "if I'm a suspect and I have a deal to work with Corrigan then maybe Corrigan should be a suspect too". It really is kinda funny if you look at it the right way.

    Also, there are other "friends" of Kocis who could also have given the Police Harlow's name.

    QUESTIONS:

    1. IF Kocis was in Las Vegas with a Cobra Video Model and that model did NOT go on to San Diego with Kocis, isn't it possible that THAT model went backt to PA to house set Kocis' house while Kocis was in San Diego - given that Kocis had enough trust in the person to take him along to Las Vegas?

    2. Is there any info on whether the model Kocis was with in Las Vegas met Harlow in Las Vegas?

    Kocis HAD to have made some kind of arrangement with someone to make sure his house and cars were secure while he was away. People here claim Kocis was solitary but The newspapers have Kocis being very close to his family.

  16. Harlow is diligently working on his FIRST Blog Post for the debut of www.HarlowCuadraOnline.com A blog that I have had the privy to see parts & parcels of. WOW is all I have to say from BLUE S2000's with 60,000 bucks of engine work (fastest & most powerful in the USA-Dyno sheet to prove it), to XXX shots of Harlows most recent HOT body, to Burnt Carpet & Ripped to shred safes!!! Just wait and see what Harlow will post ONLY wished for by Press & TV. :-) ALSO, a MAJOR announcement from a HUGE Global distributor of DVD's will occur for boybatterdvd.com products this week.
    check the link to his blog often as soon it will not be pointed to boisrus but to Harlows own mind BLOWING thoughts.
    O Pennsy authorities have GIVEN back harlows guns, 2257 forms, and other items this week and will continue presumably searching through 40 computer towers for any "not to be found" earth shattering substance. LOL Harlow is TRULY smiling as he heads to the bank BUT ****is careful to thank all of you bloggers, Brent & Grant, and the many new found fans!

    Mark always posts right after I post something about Harlow. Always.

    The purpose, seems to me, threefold: To make fanciful claims about how rich and successful Harlow is today; to bang the tin cup for new web site subscribers (note how these first two purposes are at odds with each other); and thirdly, to push my post up towards the middle of the comment section, so as to obscure it.

    Always. You'll now soon see another Mark post now, probably within the hour, at least six inches in length...trying to push this post out of sight.

  20. Jim, sorry but I post not in response to anything you might say, I have learned to welcome negative press ever since Harlow & one of our Navy Seal Escorts were pushed butt naked against the wall in a Hotel Bust @ the Marriott in Norfolk 2 years ago. The only thing to come of this was the head of Norfolk Vice Squad approaching me after Barry taylor got all charges dropped and the Srgt shook my hand and says OUR department officially will leave you guys alone as it is clear You do your job right! This made press and only big BUCKS it was at this point we purchased our 1 million dollar home. Negative has always been Positive here.
    Boybatter has Cuadraooopled <<<(spelling mistake) 4 fold since this wrongful accusation. SO KNOW,...everytime you post slaps and flap your lip in wild and misplaced contempt YOU bring our Harvest more plentiful. THANKS Brent Corrigan, Grant ROY, & JIM for all you have done! KEEP ON. as we will

  23. There is no evidence I know of that Harlow Cuadra has ever even been in Luzerne County. Yet, the guy was FINGERED as someone who was scheduled to met with Kocis before Kocis went up in Frames (apparently by a kid who is so afraid of Luzerne County, he would probably do anything to avoid ending up before Judge Michael T Conahan).

    By all indications, Harlow Cuadra was supposed to be a corpse now with the Kocis Murder Mystery laid right on top of Harlow's grave.

    Since Harlow Cuadra was NOT killed by the raid on his house, it Looks like Luzerne County may be searching Harlow's Computers to try to claim that there is Kiddie Porn on them. It is kind of ironic that Luzerne County, of all places, has gone beyond Luzerne County to look for kiddie porn - when they knew had their own little local gay pornographer making kiddie porn in his basement.

    Assuming Luzerne County does plant kiddie porn on Harlow's computers, THAT still would not get Harlow to Luzerne County - since the computers were located in Virgnia.

    NOTE TO HARLOW CUADRA AND TO EVERY GAY ADULT VIDEO COMPANY IN AMERICA - DON'T SELL ANYTHING TO ANYBODY IN LUZERNE COUNTY PENNSYLVANIA Starting today, every gay adult video company in America should cease selling any products of any kind to anyone or anything in Luzerne County Pennsylvania.

  26. Here’s a thought people Bryan E-mailed an associate about a meeting with a new model. Do we know when he sent the E-mail? Do we know to whom he sent the E-mail? No we do not and do you know why? Because there was no E-mail. Why do I say that you ask? Well if you were such a close associate of Bryan Kocis you would have tried to find out how said meeting went and get the details about it. If Bryan did not respond you would be concerned and would most likely call someone close to Bryan or the authorities. But did this associate do this? Not from what I have read the police thought the model was named Drake. If Bryan did this as a safety measure he would have used more information in the E-mail. Don’t you see this is just the Luzerne County Police on a fishing expedition? They never had a “E-mail” with Harlow’s picture on it. I bet someone was trying to find out who Harlow was after they saw him in Vegas. This picture came from the cache on Bryan’s computer. Not an E-mail like the police claim. Did any of you read my new theory that the killer was in Bryan’s home the whole time and they killed him? The police were contacted by this person “after they found out that Bryan was murdered” and they said that he said he was expecting a new model and provided the information to the police. Can’t you see that this person had intimate details of Bryan’s life? Harlow was framed because of his association to Brent and Grant. This was done to try and bring Brent and Grant in as suspects to this murder. It is an intricate plot but the person who did this had all the details that were necessary. If they were at the home the whole time they would have witnessed the phone calls from Brent to Bryan. They would also know about the settlement. They would also know about Brent and Bryan hugging as the hustle ball because they were there. They would know about Harlow because they saw him with Brent and Grant at the Hustla Ball. I would say that a jilted paramour who felt that his special place was being taken by one of his rivals killed Bryan. Figure that this person snapped and did this out of rage and jealousy. Then in a panic set the house on fire and left the scene only to call the police “after they found out about the murder”. Harlow does not fit for this murder or any murder if you ask me. Why would he do this and what purpose would it serve him to do this?

    Hey anon you keep screaming about Bryan Kocis being dead before the 24th of January but you seem to have no proof of this. He flew home on the 20th and took a limo to his home so I would assume the limo driver saw him. It has been stated several times that he spoke to 3 people on the day he died and they seem to think it was Bryan that they had conversations with. Why are you under the impression he was dead before that? What purpose would it serve for him to be dead before the 24th of January? Did you have something to do with his death? Or are you just trying to confuse matters and redirect this thread? I do know this you have been on this and many other threads proclaiming the same thing. Are you saying that one of his models saw him last? Are you saying that he was dead before he got to his home? break it down for us you seem to know something but you just need to spit it out. So give us some credible evidence and maybe we will take you seriously.

    NBC 10's Tim Furlong reported that Kocis once pleaded guilty to having sex with a child. He had an up-and-down life, filing for bankruptcy at one point, and then amassing quite a fortune when he started Cobra Video. He funded, produced and directed male-on-male videos, primarily casting 18- to 23-year-old men.
    State police said they don't have much on which to go in the case. They were going through Kocis' e-mails, phone records and Web sites trying to get in touch with anyone who might have had contact with him in the last few weeks of his life.
    That includes an unidentified man whose photograph Kocis had saved on his computer and told an associate he was going to meet on the night he was murdered.
    State police said the man's last name might be "Drake" and he possibly lives in the Philadelphia, Allentown, or King of Prussia areas.
    Police were not calling him a suspect but want to ask him some questions.
    Anyone who may know his identity is asked to contact Pennsylvania State Police.

    Everyone really needs to get this story straight. Was there a E-mail? Nope. Was the file saved on his computer? It would appear so. From the report it would appear he told someone he was going to meet the unidentified model. So whom did Bryan tell? Big question here who is this unidentified confidant that Bryan told about the model. And how did said Confidant know about the saved picture on the computer? And how did he know the file name unless he put it there. Arrest the confidant he did it.

  38. Sooooooo, Bryan Kocis only had only one saved picture on his computer. One of a guy in his underwear. A guy how turns out to be a virginia escort. Who was in Las Vegas with Brent Corrigan. And there are pictures to prove this. and this escort wants to work with Brent. And Brent is a former cobra boy. Get real the man was a porn producer. He would have pictures of thousands of boys on his computer. This is just stupid to put out there. The man was definantly killed by his “Confidant” . the police need to get a clue. How would this person know which picture was of the model unless they put it there. If there was no email with the picture attached. Elm you do good research if I am ever in trouble I want you on my side

  39. elm,

    bryan was telling several people at that day that he is going to meet a model (cad, sean....). bryan had to be in contact with that model before to schedule that date. this would leave certain traces on his computer and at servers. far more than just putting a photo on a hard disk.

  42. Maybe the police matched the name "Drake" with the wrong picture?

    ReplyDelete
  43. AB that is possible but Bryan would have told Sean who the model was if it was Harlow. Sean has stated that he recommended Harlow to Bryan and Falcon. But he did not know who the model was until he saw the picture on the news.
    This is from Jody Wheelers Deleted blog post “Two Pair” heres a link to it. http://julienpdx.blogspot.com/
    “Now everything made sense. Cuadra spoke with Sean about doing films. Nothing happens but they stay friendly. Sean refers Cuadra to Falcon (according to Cuadra.) Sean and Cuadra chat at AVN. Snap pictures. Sean refers Cuadra to Bryan. Bryan winds up dead with a picture of Cuadra in his email. I think I'd get an attorney too.
    Just to be clear, everything after the "Boom" in the above is me. The only other thing Sean said today about Cuadra is that Cuadra and his boyfriend are "on the run." When Sean said that, he and I both knew we were about to talk actively about the case, a big no-no. So I'll just stress again, the above is me figuring out a chain of events based on what I'd already heard over the last few months -- a chain of events any of us would be crazy not to bring an attorney into. Pretty damn crazy.”


    So that leaves another big question now doesn’t it. Like I have said all along Harlow was setup for this murder. And not by Sean. He was setup by the killer who had details of all that had happened and was happening. Who could that be do we have a clue. someone close to Bryan who did not like Sean and he was pissed of at the fact that Sean was back in Bryan's life. could it be the little henchmen?

    Now that is a valid point I never thought about that. But that still leaves the question of who Bryan told about the model? And if the police retrieved it from a hard drive was this the only picture that they could pull up? Why Harlow if there were other pictures on the hard drive? He is not even the type of guy Cobra video would use. Now I am in no way slighting Harlow but he is too mannish for Cobra. They liked Boys at that company just look at most of the models they looked like kids.

  45. someone was in contact to schedule that meeting. it was not harlow. the model called himself drake. so he did not refer to sean to approach bryan. but drake used the pic of harlow. drake therefor knew from a connection between sean and harlow (sean camp, on the boybatter mailing list, visiting both together in vegas).

    the article didn´t say how the police found harlow´s pic on the hard disk. but it can be in his email inbox or whatever.

    We are on the same page someone sent this picture to Bryan or the simply down loaded the picture to his computer from Bryan’s home. The person who did this had intimate knowledge of the previous events and was trying to implicate Sean, Grant and Harlow in the murder of Bryan Kocis. This person was a “trusted” friend to Bryan and they committed this murder.

    ReplyDelete
  49. A few comments...

    The police didn't go into Harlow's house intending to kill him. Does anybody really think Pennsylvania police can call Virginia and request a killing? Let's set that bit of conspiracy theory aside. Searches are often conducted at 5am, so police can catch people sleeping and control the scene quickly - especially if it's a murder suspect with guns in the house.

    Also, it's ridiculous that the 'killed before 1/24' speculation keeps coming back. The autopsy would have discovered this, fire or no fire. Numerous people were in touch with Bryan that day. Here's one more for you: I know someone who spoke with him that day by telephone about an ongoing business matter.

    There's really no mystery about the timing of the warrant, release of the Drake pic, and the search. The original sealed warrant could have specified the unidentified Drake. Police may have tried and failed to ID the photo on their own before releasing it. They wouldn't necessarily need a new warrant once Drake was known to be Harlow.

    Harlow's saying he was in VA with a client does not mean he was, or has an alibi. (Elm, you keep saying he has an alibi when all we know is that he claims he does.) It's certainly reasonable that if he's innocent and a suspect, that his lawyer wouldn't want him talking to police. On the other hand, if he has a verifiable alibi it would also be in his interest to get the proof to police and take himself out of the investigation. For that matter, maybe he has already, and he's been cleared. We don't know.

    The vicious nature of the crime wouldn't seem to fit Harlow, if he went to see Bryan and it was their first encounter. However, you could imagine a motive for Harlow, if not one that most would consider strong enough for murder. Clearly, Harlow aspires to be more successful, and we know that he tried to take the next step via an association with Sean & LSG. The Cobra/LSG settlement would have been a big setback. It's conceivable that he might have approached Bryan either to appear with Sean in upcoming videos, or to propose some sort of deal involving his company. If Bryan rejected those offers, it's easy to imagine Harlow reacting badly. The crime still seems very brutal for that scenario, but who knows?

    Sean/Grant may know whether Harlow was trying to get himself into the picture (literally and/or figuratively) with Cobra/LSG, post-settlement. That would explain his initial comment about not being able to say anything, and his comment that Harlow/Joe really f***ed up. There might also be correspondence about this in Bryan's e-mail records, and it might be what they are looking for as well in Harlow's computers - some record of the scheduled meeting, driving directions pulled from Google or MapQuest, etc.

    The murder's timing, related to the legal settlement, seems potentially important if not critical, as others have mentioned. It's been said that the settlement was in force regardless. Do we know that this is true? And even if it is, the killer might not have known it - or might have only learned of it moments before the murder.

    Elm's assertion that the killer wasn't Harlow nor anyone from LSG is certainly viable. It's always been possible that the killer would end up being someone else. However, framing Harlow is a bit of a stretch. If you want to frame someone, and even if you aren't all that bright, would you really pick someone the victim has allegedly never met, and who lives two states away? Chances are very good that the framed person would have an alibi, one way or another, considering the distance he'd have had to travel. Harlow doesn't need to establish that he was in VA at 8pm - any time from maybe 3pm-2am should be sufficient to clear him, if it's assumed he drove. If you're framing him, you can't assume the police will think he flew, since there would be records of that - and you'd know there won't be any such records.

    Or maybe you frame Harlow because you knew he really did have a meeting scheduled with Bryan, or because he was actually there. Maybe you kill Bryan right after Harlow leaves. But that doesn't fit - why would the innocent Harlow claim he was in VA? He'd have taken no measures to cover his tracks.

    I agree with Jim that the warrant probably remains sealed because there is more in it than an e-mail reference to Harlow being expected by Bryan on 1/24.

  51. begining to think that the whole Harlow link is a roose... we aint heard a single word from Harlow - just 3rdhand from his publicist Mark - who keeps prommising links and words... but just delivers the same old stuff... no new photos of brent - no real connection just some dodgy pic seen everywhere... a collage of the cobra video and a few harlow shots just dont cut it... aint seen any thing new Mark Harlow aint been seen - just talked about ... no new pics... no colaboration with LSG as once reported by you ... me thinks this comment is very suss too

    The only thing to come of this was the head of Norfolk Vice Squad approaching me after Barry taylor got all charges dropped and the Srgt shook my hand and says OUR department officially will leave you guys alone as it is clear You do your job right!

    i mean really - is that a direct quote ??? yeah right !!!! what does it have to do with anything .. and was this just a mark post - or a joe post maybe trent ... sure aint harlow

    joe - the pics of harlow - after you fixed the hot tub ... they look so real and ... so recent.... Yeah right!!

    Harlow looks sly in all his pics - and as for the drunk pic with brent think it shows at the least some plot being hatched by the harlow camp.... and they are the only ones talking $$$$ 60,000 this a million this.... just who's arse are you pulling this out of ... joe mark trent or the ever quiet harlow

  54. hi bryn,

    a sudden rage would result in a fight (defense wounds). a sudden rage would only point to harlow, because he was the guy on the pic and would be there for a meeting. when his alibi holds we have to assume framing and a planed murder of hate.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Elm, I don't understand your problem with the e-mail & the Drake pic. It could have been, and probably was, in his 'sent' folder on his PC, or on the server, or both. The pic would be an attachment. That's probably what was meant by finding it on his computer. If you think the killer claimed he was sent an e-mail that never existed, that's taking quite a risk, since there would be no trace of it on Bryan's system.

    I see no reason to doubt that there was an e-mail, except in trying to make it fit your theory of the crime, including an attempt to frame Harlow.

For that matter you don't hear from Cody Lockhart (he was on Jasons) and we have not heard from Lance or the Cobra Bois with "close" relationships to Bryan. My money is still on Aaron just because like Howard said he was "in a relationship" pre Brent in 2003 and he was obviously back with Bryan at GayVN!

Let's set that bit of conspiracy theory aside. Searches are often conducted at 5am, so police can catch people sleeping and control the scene quickly - especially if it's a murder suspect with guns in the house.


    Well I’m not so sure about that. The police never even spoke to Harlow or Joe before this search. As far as we know there is no evidence to even connect Harlow to this crime short of a grainy little picture on the deceased party’s computer. A computer that belonged too a Gay Porn Producer who without a doubt would have multiple pictures of naked boys on his hard-drive.

    Also, it's ridiculous that the 'killed before 1/24' speculation keeps coming back. The autopsy would have discovered this, fire or no fire. Numerous people were in touch with Bryan that day. Here's one more for you: I know someone who spoke with him that day by telephone about an ongoing business matter.

    Who was this person and why do we not know of them? Do you have definitive evidence to put that matter to rest?

    There's really no mystery about the timing of the warrant, release of the Drake pic, and the search. The original sealed warrant could have specified the unidentified Drake. Police may have tried and failed to ID the photo on their own before releasing it. They wouldn't necessarily need a new warrant once Drake was known to be Harlow.

    This I find interesting because the police new about the picture of “Drake” before the warrants were issued. How did they know about “Drake” if the picture was on the hard-drive of the deceased’s computer and they had yet to get a warrant for his electronic records? Did someone tell them about Drake before the warrants were issued? If so why did they not identify him as Harlow and how did this person know about the scheduled meeting?

    Harlow's saying he was in VA with a client does not mean he was, or has an alibi. (Elm, you keep saying he has an alibi when all we know is that he claims he does.) It's certainly reasonable that if he's innocent and a suspect, that his lawyer wouldn't want him talking to police. On the other hand, if he has a verifiable alibi it would also be in his interest to get the proof to police and take himself out of the investigation. For that matter, maybe he has already, and he's been cleared. We don't know.

    From what information I have gathered it would appear that Harlow’s attorneys have given that information to the police but the police still consider him a person of interest.

    The vicious nature of the crime wouldn't seem to fit Harlow, if he went to see Bryan and it was their first encounter. However, you could imagine a motive for Harlow, if not one that most would consider strong enough for murder. Clearly, Harlow aspires to be more
    successful, and we know that he tried to take the next step via an association with Sean & LSG.


    I have been quite outspoken on Harlow’s self-promotion and remain so to this day I have often called it tasteless. But you have to understand this Harlow has the potential to be much bigger than a twink porn-star. Which I might add is a category that he does not even fit under. Bryan Kocis did not use men who look like Harlow in his productions he used boys.

    The Cobra/LSG settlement would have been a big setback. It's conceivable that he might have approached Bryan either to appear with Sean in upcoming videos, or to propose some sort of deal involving his company. If Bryan rejected those offers, it's easy to imagine Harlow reacting badly. The crime still seems very brutal for that scenario, but who knows?

    There is a possibility that Harlow might approach Cobra Video to work together on future projects with Sean but why would he do that when he could go directly to Sean? Harlow and Sean both have their own production companies and they could work together with or with out Bryan. Bryan’s deal was with LSG Media and it in no way excluded Harlow from working with Sean.

    Sean/Grant may know whether Harlow was trying to get himself into the picture (literally and/or figuratively) with Cobra/LSG, post-settlement. That would explain his initial comment about not being able to say anything, and his comment that Harlow/Joe really f***ed up.

    That is also a possibility but not at all likely. Sean was probably referring to the E-mail release that was made by Mark of Boybatter regarding their future projects. This was made during a difficult period in the negotiations with Cobra video.

    There might also be correspondence about this in Bryan's e-mail records, and it might be what they are looking for as well in Harlow's computers - some record of the scheduled meeting, driving directions pulled from Google or MapQuest, etc.

    I really don’t know if they will find anything. But it is most likely they are just trying to implicate Harlow in this in anyway that they can.

    The murder's timing, related to the legal settlement, seems potentially important if not critical, as others have mentioned. It's been said that the settlement was in force regardless. Do we know that this is true? And even if it is, the killer might not have known it - or might have only learned of it moments before the murder.

    Yes the settlement is in force. I do not know if Harlow knew about the settlement or not as it really did not concern him. The settlement was between LSG Media and Cobra Studios.

    Elm's assertion that the killer wasn't Harlow nor anyone from LSG is certainly viable. It's always been possible that the killer would end up being someone else. However, framing Harlow is a bit of a stretch. If you want to frame someone, and even if you aren't all that bright, would you really pick someone the victim has allegedly never met, and who lives two states away? Chances are very good that the framed person would have an alibi, one way or another, considering the distance he'd have had to travel.

If you're framing him, you can't assume the police will think he flew, since there would be records of that - and you'd know there won't be any such records.

    Look at the manner that Bryan was killed and you tell me if the person who did this was thinking in a rational way. Who ever killed Bryan is a psychopath. And they did not have the forethought to think that far ahead. They were just trying to cover their tracks. About the time of the murder we already discussed this and we determined that it is at laeast a six hour drive and that Harlow’s alibi would exonerate him.

    Or maybe you frame Harlow because you knew he really did have a meeting scheduled with Bryan, or because he was actually there. Maybe you kill Bryan right after Harlow leaves. But that doesn't fit - why would the innocent Harlow claim he was in VA? He'd have taken no measures to cover his tracks.

    Why if Harlow was there would he not admit it? Who ever killed Bryan would have been there as well and Harlow could implicate him. Also if Harlow was there he would most likely have to stop for gas or food somewhere along the way home if he was driving a big SUV.

    I agree with Jim that the warrant probably remains sealed because there is more in it than an e-mail reference to Harlow being expected by Bryan on 1/24.

    Or mabye it remains sealed because that’s all that is in it.a grainy picture of harlow and a e-mail. The police might not have anymore evidence than that and are trying to protect themselves from a civil suit for an unlawful search.

    Even though the search warrant AFFIDAVITS in Virginia are sealed, the DOCKET SHEET for the search case may be public - it may be possible to ask the clerk of court in Virginia (or Harlow's lawyer) what date Virginia Beach and Luzerne County Police first petitioned a Virginia Beach judge to search Harlow's house.

The Settlement was for the most part handled by Grant. There would have been plenty of chances to kill Bryan if he had wanted to but he didn’t. Maybe that’s because he did not want Bryan dead. Bryan was a multifaceted person many people knew him but you only knew what he wanted you to know. There are many different versions of Bryan Kocis that we have seen on these threads and they all appear different. But they are the one single person who was Bryan Kocis. He was an Eagle Scout and a loving son and brother. Yet he was a tyrant to others. He was described a vindictive, cruel and nasty by others. He was accused of molesting young boys and the list goes on and on. So the fact of the matter is there could be a whole host of people who would want Bryan dead. And to single out one who made a threat as someone who could be involved is ok. Just remember part of killing someone is the opportunity to do so. So to stab Bryan to death and burn down his house is a real super hero feat if you do this from San Diego Ca. One of mythic proportions I might add. But to kill him when you are staying at his home is allot more feasible. I still say who ever killed Bryan Kocis was at his home for a few days before they killed Bryan.

  65. Elm, I’m the Anonymous whose long post you replied to. I figured I’d register a name before posting again. That was my first post here, BTW. Here are some responses:

    The police never even spoke to Harlow or Joe before this search. As far as we know there is no evidence to even connect Harlow to this crime short of a grainy little picture.

    Why the police would alert them to an impending search? And how do you know that no police talked to them? Also, please remember the “as far as we know” part of your statement.

    Who was this person and why do we not know of them? Do you have definitive evidence to put that matter to rest?

    It was one of Cobra’s distributors. They’d been discussing their contract.

    The police new about the picture of “Drake” before the warrants were issued. How did they know about “Drake” if the picture was on the hard-drive of the deceased’s computer and they had yet to get a warrant for his electronic records?

    I think you’re making assumptions about the order of events that may have happened very quickly. How do you know the police knew about the Drake pic before all warrants? Police can start a crime scene search after a phone call from a judge, with paperwork sorted out afterwards. Could they have searched the PC with oral approval, requested other warrants based on what they found, and filed them all together the following day? Or if some were filed in the morning and the others later in the day, would news reports have bothered mentioning that? Have you looked at the warrants in that level of detail?

    Did someone tell them about Drake before the warrants were issued? If so why did they not identify him as Harlow and how did this person know about the scheduled meeting?


    That’s certainly possible, that someone learned of Bryan’s murder and contacted police to let them know that Bryan was expecting a model, and forwarded the photo they’d received from Bryan. Obviously if he thought the person was ‘Drake’ then he couldn’t have identified him as Harlow for police. This is what’s been reported and I see no problem with it at all.

    It would appear that Harlow’s attorneys have given that [alibi] information to the police but the police still consider him a person of interest.

    Your lawyer represents your side of the story on your behalf. That doesn’t mean it checks out or is reliable.

    Bryan Kocis did not use men who look like Harlow in his productions.

    You’ve made this point a number of times and it’s always seemed odd to me. I don’t see why Harlow couldn’t have been cast in a Cobra video. He might not be the ideal Cobra model, but it’s not that much of a stretch. He’s more boyish looking than some who’ve worked for Cobra.

    Harlow and Sean ... could work together with or with out Bryan. Bryan’s deal was with LSG Media and it in no way excluded Harlow from working with Sean. 



    This is very surprising. After all the legal battles, Bryan gets a deal that has Sean working for him again but it isn’t exclusive? Are you sure?

    I do not know if Harlow knew about the settlement or not as it really did not concern him. The settlement was between LSG Media and Cobra Studios. 



    If Harlow thought in mid-January that he was about to strike a deal with LSG that would lead to a higher profile and a chance to make money working with Sean, and the LSG/Cobra settlement made that impossible (or even just unnecessary for LSG), then it would have an impact on his plans.

    Look at the manner that Bryan was killed and you tell me if the person who did this was thinking in a rational way.

    Actually, I believe it’s possible that the killing was coldly rational. The lack of defensive wounds could indicate that Bryan was killed coolly and swiftly by the throat, and the torso wounds are just a diversion. I wouldn’t argue that this is probable, but without any defensive wounds, I think it’s possible.

    Who ever killed Bryan is a psychopath. And they did not have the forethought to think that far ahead. They were just trying to cover their tracks.

    Let me see if I have your theory correct. Someone close to Bryan kills him, perhaps from jealousy triggered by the LSG settlement, or some other reason. He was irrational and did not think ahead. If he had, he’d have realized that Harlow -- someone Bryan hadn’t met, who lived six hours away and only needed one solid alibi over a 12-hour span -- is a ridiculously poor candidate to frame. However, the killer must have been aware of Harlow’s connection to Sean/LSG in order to have chosen him. It must be someone very familiar with all the business dealings. The Drake/Harlow photo did not appear randomly, I’m sure you’ll agree.

    So to distract the police, he gives them a photo of someone he claims Bryan was expecting that night, but wasn’t really. (BTW, wasn’t there more than one person Bryan told about the model visit?) The killer claims to have received the photo by e-mail, not realizing that the police will likely read Bryan’s e-mails and might notice that it never was sent, attracting suspicion. Since the meeting was never scheduled, police will find no other reference to it in Bryan’s incoming mail, or chat logs, nor any phone calls between Bryan and Harlow, when they get that far (but never mind, he’s not really thinking it all through).

    Instead of telling police the photo is Harlow in VA, he says it’s maybe-Drake from somewhere in PA. Let’s give him some credit at this point: he figures they’ll ID the photo as Harlow on their own, but after enough time that Harlow’s alibi will be harder to verify. Maybe he was the anonymous tipster online who identified Harlow as Drake.

    He’s lucky, because Harlow’s alibi (or at least the version he told the press) isn’t good enough to clear him definitively. Even more lucky, the police don’t care who killed Bryan, and become intent on arresting Harlow based on this photo and alleged 7:30 appointment. A suspect who under normal circumstances could be eliminated easily becomes instead their sole target. Not someone within their jurisdiction, but someone who will require cooperation of VA and Federal authorities to pursue. The VA police not only agree to overlook his alibi, they even agree to storm his house and maybe even kill the occupants as a professional courtesy. Plus, the local VA judge gets in on the conspiracy by signing the warrant based on flimsy evidence from out of state.

    Maybe [the warrant] remains sealed because that’s all that is in it.a grainy picture of harlow and a e-mail. The police might not have anymore evidence than that and are trying to protect themselves from a civil suit for an unlawful search.

    Maybe, but let’s be serious: probably not. Harlow might be innocent, but there’s probably more in the sealed warrant than the e-mail and photo, even if it’s circumstantial evidence that doesn’t prove guilt.

  66. Well J-bee I find your response quit delightful but since this is such along response I will respond in several parts. Do to the fact that it is starting to look like an online chat.

    J-BEE said: The police didn't go into Harlow's house intending to kill him. Does anybody really think Pennsylvania police can call Virginia and request a killing? Let's set that bit of conspiracy theory aside. Searches are often conducted at 5am, so police can catch people sleeping and control the scene quickly - especially if it's a murder suspect with guns in the house.


    {The police never even spoke to Harlow or Joe before this search.} That was a complete statement and it is a fact.

    { As far as we know there is no evidence to even connect Harlow to this crime short of a grainy little picture.} This is in reference to the evidence that we are aware of.

    Elmysterio said: Well I’m not so sure about that. The police never even spoke to Harlow or Joe before this search. As far as we know there is no evidence to even connect Harlow to this crime short of a grainy little picture on the deceased party’s computer. A computer that belonged too a Gay Porn Producer who without a doubt would have multiple pictures of naked boys on his hard-drive.
    The above is my complete statement not the edited version you choose to respond too.

    J-Bee said: Why the police would alert them to an impending search? And how do you know that no police talked to them? Also, please remember the “as far as we know” part of your statement.

    Elmysterio said: I never said the police alerted Harlow and Joe. I said “By an act of divine intervention Harlow and Joe were not home at the time.” As for the police not talking to Harlow or Joe their attorney made a statement in the newspaper stating that fact.

    J-Bee said: Also, it's ridiculous that the 'killed before 1/24' speculation keeps coming back. The autopsy would have discovered this, fire or no fire. Numerous people were in touch with Bryan that day. Here's one more for you: I know someone who spoke with him that day by telephone about an ongoing business matter.

    Elmysterio Said: Who was this person and why do we not know of them? Do you have definitive evidence to put that matter to rest?

    J-Bee said: It was one of Cobra’s distributors. They’d been discussing their contract.

    Elmysterio Said: Thank you that helps put an end to that speculation.


    j-Bee said: There's really no mystery about the timing of the warrant, release of the Drake pic, and the search. The original sealed warrant could have specified the unidentified Drake. Police may have tried and failed to ID the photo on their own before releasing it. They wouldn't necessarily need a new warrant once Drake was known to be Harlow.

    Elmysterio Said: This I find interesting because the police knew about the picture of “Drake” before the warrants were issued. How did they know about “Drake” if the picture was on the hard-drive of the deceased’s computer and they had yet to get a warrant for his electronic records? Did someone tell them about Drake before the warrants were issued? If so why did they not identify him as Harlow and how did this person know about the scheduled meeting?

    J-Bee said: I think you’re making assumptions about the order of events that may have happened very quickly. How do you know the police knew about the Drake pic before all warrants? Police can start a crime scene search after a phone call from a judge, with paperwork sorted out afterwards. Could they have searched the PC with oral approval, requested other warrants based on what they found, and filed them all together the following day? Or if some were filed in the morning and the others later in the day, would news reports have bothered mentioning that? Have you looked at the warrants in that level of detail?

    Elmysterio Said:So the police called a Judge and got oral approval to search the hard drive of Bryan’s computer. They discover Harlow’s picture among the many pictures of young men on the hard-drive labeled as “Drake”. This picture was attached to an E-mail sent from the Allentown area and sent to Bryan. Bryan in-turn sends this E-mail to an associate and informs them that he has an appointment to meet this model at 7:30pm on the 24th of January. The police get search warrants based on this yet they can not identify this model or find him until they put his picture up on the Internet and the News. Bryan was not going to meet this model without first talking to him. There must be a phone record of a conversation or at least a record of an attempt to contact Drake. This is what Bryan did for a living he dealt with models yet you expect us to believe that he would just take an E-mail from some model and make an appointment to meet with them. How stupid do you think we are? Bryan would not open the door for his next door neighbor but he was going to see a model named “Drake” without even speaking to him. Get real. Like I said before the search warrants are bogus. I still do not believe that there is anything pertinent in them.
    I saw the unsealed warrants for the phone and the electronic records but the other 4 warrants are sealed.

    This is part one of my response.

  69. here is part 2 of my response to J-Bee

    Elmysterio said:Did someone tell them about Drake before the warrants were issued? If so why did they not identify him as Harlow and how did this person know about the scheduled meeting?

    j-bee said:That’s certainly possible, that someone learned of Bryan’s murder and contacted police to let them know that Bryan was expecting a model, and forwarded the photo they’d received from Bryan. Obviously if he thought the person was ‘Drake’ then he couldn’t have identified him as Harlow for police. This is what’s been reported and I see no problem with it at all.

    Elmysterio said: Well I can understand that Bryan might have thought the models name was "Drake" he would use that name in an e-mail. My question is still was there any phone communication with the model before the meeting. That is very crucial with regards to Bryan. He was not just going to take an E-mail from some guy and not verify it in some way. That’s not how he worked. He was very cautious as has been proven by the E-mail sent to let someone know he was expecting a model.

    J_bee said: Harlow's saying he was in VA with a client does not mean he was, or has an alibi. (Elm, you keep saying he has an alibi when all we know is that he claims he does.) It's certainly reasonable that if he's innocent and a suspect, that his lawyer wouldn't want him talking to police. On the other hand, if he has a verifiable alibi it would also be in his interest to get the proof to police and take himself out of the investigation. For that matter, maybe he has already, and he's been cleared. We don't know.

    Elmysterio said:From what information I have gathered it would appear that Harlow’s attorneys have given that information to the police but the police still consider him a person of interest.

    j-bee said: Your lawyer represents your side of the story on your behalf. That doesn’t mean it checks out or is reliable.

    Elmysterio said: yes that is true about the attorney representing you, but if the police have spoken to your alibi and they confirm your whereabouts during the time in question then the police should remove you as a suspect right?
    This is just speculation but I don’t think this has happened in this case. I have said that the police have a hardon for Harlow and won’t quit until they can pin this on him.

    J-bee said:The vicious nature of the crime wouldn't seem to fit Harlow, if he went to see Bryan and it was their first encounter. However, you could imagine a motive for Harlow, if not one that most would consider strong enough for murder. Clearly, Harlow aspires to be more successful, and we know that he tried to take the next step via an association with Sean & LSG.

    Elmysterio Said: I have been quite outspoken on Harlow’s self-promotion and remain so to this day I have often called it tasteless. But you have to understand this, Harlow has the potential to be much bigger than a twink porn-star. Which I might add is a category that he does not even fit under. Bryan Kocis did not use men who look like Harlow in his productions he used boys.You paraphrased what I said and it lost its context.

    J-bee said: You’ve made this point a number of times and it’s always seemed odd to me. I don’t see why Harlow couldn’t have been cast in a Cobra video. He might not be the ideal Cobra model, but it’s not that much of a stretch. He’s more boyish looking than some who’ve worked for Cobra.

    Elmysterio said: I stand by that statement go to the cobra site and look at the boys. They all look barley legal no facial hair and very little body hair and minimal muscle definition they are the true definition of a twink. I would also highly doubt that after talking to Sean, Harlow would work for Cobra Video. If he read anything on Sean’s blog or any of the reports on the dealings between Sean and Cobra I truly think he would stay away from Bryan.
    Here is a link to the Cobra page go see for yourself. http://www.cobravideo.com/

    J-bee said:The Cobra/LSG settlement would have been a big setback. It's conceivable that he might have approached Bryan either to appear with Sean in upcoming videos, or to propose some sort of deal involving his company. If Bryan rejected those offers, it's easy to imagine Harlow reacting badly. The crime still seems very brutal for that scenario, but who knows?

    Elmysterio said: There is a possibility that Harlow might approach Cobra Video to work together on future projects with Sean but why would he do that when he could go directly to Sean? Harlow and Sean both have their own production companies and they could work together with or with out Bryan. Bryan’s deal was with LSG Media and it in no way excluded Harlow from working with Sean. You paraphrased me again what is in italics is what you used, not real cool.

    J-bee said: This is very surprising. After all the legal battles, Bryan gets a deal that has Sean working for him again but it isn’t exclusive? Are you sure?

    Elmysterio said: You have got to be kidding me you have been reading all the threads all along and you think you can fool me with your little tactics. Get real. WHY THE FUCK WOULD SEAN LOCKHART GET IN AN EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT WITH BRYAN KOCIS WHEN HE RAN TO CALIFORNIA TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM HIM AS POSSIBLE WITH OUT LEAVING THE DAMN COUNTRY? The contract was not exclusive at all Sean got to use the name Brent Corrigan and Bryan got to stay out of prison for making kiddy porn. As for Harlow working with Brent/Sean unless they changed something at the last minute they could fuck on your dinning room table to a televised audience. And would not violate the agreement as long as Bryan got his percentage of the profits.

    J_bee Said: Sean/Grant may know whether Harlow was trying to get himself into the picture (literally and/or figuratively) with Cobra/LSG, post-settlement. That would explain his initial comment about not being able to say anything, and his comment that Harlow/Joe really f***ed up.
    Elmysterio said: That is also a possibility but not at all likely. Sean was probably referring to the E-mail release that was made by Mark of Boybatter regarding their future projects. This was made during a difficult period in the negotiations with Cobra video. check my time line post.

    J-bee said: There might also be correspondence about this in Bryan's e-mail records, and it might be what they are looking for as well in Harlow's computers - some record of the scheduled meeting, driving directions pulled from Google or MapQuest, etc.

    Elmysterio said: I really don’t know if they will find anything. But it is most likely they are just trying to implicate Harlow in this in anyway that they can.

    J-bee said: The murder's timing, related to the legal settlement, seems potentially important if not critical, as others have mentioned. It's been said that the settlement was in force regardless. Do we know that this is true? And even if it is, the killer might not have known it - or might have only learned of it moments before the murder.

    Elmysterio said: Yes the settlement is in force. I do not know if Harlow knew about the settlement or not as it really did not concern him. The settlement was between LSG Media and Cobra Studios.
    You paraphrased me again what is in italics is what you used, not real cool.


    J-bee said: If Harlow thought in mid-January that he was about to strike a deal with LSG that would lead to a higher profile and a chance to make money working with Sean, and the LSG/Cobra settlement made that impossible (or even just unnecessary for LSG), then it would have an impact on his plans.

    Elmysterio said: That statement really makes no sense if you use my original statement in the proper context. Any deal that Harlow made with LSG media would still work even after the settlement. Cobra video would just get their share of the profits from LSG Media.

    J-bee said: Elm's assertion that the killer wasn't Harlow nor anyone from LSG is certainly viable. It's always been possible that the killer would end up being someone else. However, framing Harlow is a bit of a stretch. If you want to frame someone, and even if you aren't all that bright, would you really pick someone the victim has allegedly never met, and who lives two states away? Chances are very good that the framed person would have an alibi, one way or another, considering the distance he'd have had to travel. Harlow doesn't need to establish that he was in VA at 8pm - any time from maybe 3pm-2am should be sufficient to clear him, if it's assumed he drove. If you're framing him, you can't assume the police will think he flew, since there would be records of that - and you'd know there won't be any such records.

    Elmysterio said: Look at the manner that Bryan was killed and you tell me if the person who did this was thinking in a rational way. Who ever killed Bryan is a (psychopath) correction sociopath. And they did not have the forethought to think that far ahead. They were just trying to cover their tracks. About the time of the murder we already discussed this and we determined that it is at least a six hour drive and that Harlow’s alibi would exonerate him.

    J-bee said: Actually, I believe it’s possible that the killing was coldly rational. The lack of defensive wounds could indicate that Bryan was killed coolly and swiftly by the throat, and the torso wounds are just a diversion. I wouldn’t argue that this is probable, but without any defensive wounds, I think it’s possible.

    Elmysterio said: Bryan was most likely killed by someone walking up from behind while he was seated and they slashed his throat. The 28 stab wounds could very well be ceremonial. I don’t doubt that and never have. But to stab someone 28 times when they are already dead is kind of sick. And then set the house on fire shows a sense of rational thinking to destroy the evidence.

    J-Bee said: Let me see if I have your theory correct. Someone close to Bryan kills him, perhaps from jealousy triggered by the LSG settlement, or some other reason. He was irrational and did not think ahead. If he had, he’d have realized that Harlow -- someone Bryan hadn’t met, who lived six hours away and only needed one solid alibi over a 12-hour span -- is a ridiculously poor candidate to frame. However, the killer must have been aware of Harlow’s connection to Sean/LSG in order to have chosen him. It must be someone very familiar with all the business dealings. The Drake/Harlow photo did not appear randomly, I’m sure you’ll agree.

    Elmysterio said: I said who ever killed Bryan was well aware of his business dealings and was quite intimate with him. They would be aware of Sean and Grant and possibly Harlow from the Hustla ball in Las Vegas during the AVN Expo Convention. They would have attended the convention as well and witnessed Sean and Bryan hug there as well. This person was Bryan’s boy toy before Sean came along and replaced him. He had to know that if Bryan were killed all eyes would focus on Sean and Grant. Harlow was just a diversion to throw the police off the trail just like the fire at Bryan’s house.

    J-bee said: So to distract the police, he gives them a photo of someone he claims Bryan was expecting that night, but wasn’t really. (BTW, wasn’t there more than one person Bryan told about the model visit?) The killer claims to have received the photo by e-mail, not realizing that the police will likely read Bryan’s e-mails and might notice that it never was sent, attracting suspicion. Since the meeting was never scheduled, police will find no other reference to it in Bryan’s incoming mail, or chat logs, nor any phone calls between Bryan and Harlow, when they get that far (but never mind, he’s not really thinking it all through).

    Elmysterio said: the supposed e-mail could have very well been sent from an Internet Café and the reply e-mail was sent from Bryan’s house by the killer to their own e-mail address. This would cover the tracks of the little psycho and frame Harlow. It is really quite easy when you think about it. He could easily send the e-mail to Bryan from Bryan’s own computer using a different e-mail address and send himself the e-mail from Bryan’s computer to his regular E-mail address. I have 2 cumputers and one is a pc and the other is a mac. I have e-mailed myself items before so I could download them on the other computer.

    J-Bee said:Instead of telling police the photo is Harlow in VA, he says it’s maybe-Drake from somewhere in PA. Let’s give him some credit at this point: he figures they’ll ID the photo as Harlow on their own, but after enough time that Harlow’s alibi will be harder to verify. Maybe he was the anonymous tipster online who identified Harlow as Drake.

    Elmysterio said: Why would the killer tell the truth if they knew who Harlow was then they could be connected right back to him and the fact that he knows who harlow really is would implicate him in the murder. Because the picture used is only availible on Harlow's myspace page and you have to have a Myspace account to access it. I will check and see who did ID Harlow’s picture. You also need to know this, there are allot of people who are aware of who killed Bryan and the truth will come out.

    J-bee said: He’s lucky, because Harlow’s alibi (or at least the version he told the press) isn’t good enough to clear him definitively. Even more lucky, the police don’t care who killed Bryan, and become intent on arresting Harlow based on this photo and alleged 7:30 appointment. A suspect who under normal circumstances could be eliminated easily becomes instead their sole target. Not someone within their jurisdiction, but someone who will require cooperation of VA and Federal authorities to pursue. The VA police not only agree to overlook his alibi, they even agree to storm his house and maybe even kill the occupants as a professional courtesy. Plus, the local VA judge gets in on the conspiracy by signing the warrant based on flimsy evidence from out of state.

    Elmysterio said: You would be quite surprised but what you just said is very possible considering we are talking about Luzerne County Pennsylvania. This County is crooked and they are hiding something and this murder case will unearth allot of dirty little secrets. I have said that Harlow is a pawn in a sick and twisted little chess game. Harlow's alibi is most likel;y good and that is why he has not been arrested for this murder. You can make all the assumptions you want about it but Harlow did not do this. I have said all along that there was most likely no e-mail ever sent. You said the police had one. I am of the firm belief that the killer was at Bryan’s house the whole time from when he arrived from San Diego until he was murdered. He witnessed the fact that Sean called Bryan several times to discuss business. He felt that he was being replaced again and he snapped. This person could be a classic sociopath and not think that anything he has done is wrong and feel justified in what they have done.

    J-bee said Or maybe you frame Harlow because you knew he really did have a meeting scheduled with Bryan, or because he was actually there. Maybe you kill Bryan right after Harlow leaves. But that doesn't fit - why would the innocent Harlow claim he was in VA? He'd have taken no measures to cover his tracks.

    Elmysterio said: You are just so intent on putting harlow on the scene that it hurts you. Why if Harlow was there would he not admit it? Who ever killed Bryan would have been there as well and Harlow could implicate him. Also if Harlow was there he would most likely have to stop for gas or food somewhere along the way home if he was driving a big SUV.

    J-bee said:I agree with Jim that the warrant probably remains sealed because there is more in it than an e-mail reference to Harlow being expected by Bryan on 1/24.

    Elmysterio Said:Or mabye it [the warrant] remains sealed because that’s all that is in it. A grainy picture of Harlow and a possible e-mail. The police might not have anymore evidence than that and are trying to protect themselves from a civil suit for an unlawful search.

    J-bee said:Maybe, but let’s be serious: probably not. Harlow might be innocent, but there’s probably more in the sealed warrant than the e-mail and photo, even if it’s circumstantial evidence that doesn’t prove guilt.

    Elmysterio said:You can twist my words any which way you want to but the fact remains that this case is allot bigger than this murder. And the officials in this county were banking on Harlow being dead so they could put this whole thing to bed. The fact that the Federal Government is involved now will make a big difference how things are handled.

  70. Elm, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe that you had stated this was your theory until very recently. You may have thought this all along, I don't know, but I don't ever recall you stating this in the past weeks or months.

    "I am of the firm belief that the killer was at Bryan’s house the whole time from when he arrived from San Diego until he was murdered.

    I'm curious, what was said or what info did you uncover that changed your mind, or made up your mind, or at least led you to this theory that the killer had been in Bryan's home all along?

  71. hey MJ
    Well Bryan was away for two weeks dealing with the settlement and someone had to watch his home and check things out for him. I believe the person was Aaron. He was in Las Vegas with Bryan and he probably flew back early to take care of things while Bryan was away. He would also be aware of the settlement and who Harlow is after seeing him at the Hutsla Ball with Sean and Grant. He would have been upset with the affection that Sean showed Bryan at that event as well. Aaron did not Like Sean and the fact that Bryan and Sean had finally come to an agreement was probably too much for him to take. Aaron was one of Bryan’s main boys before Sean came along and replaced him. When Sean left Aaron was back in good with Bryan. If Bryan was going to trust anyone It would be Aaron. There have been other people who mentioned him early on and after a few months you sit back and look at who had the opportunity to do this and he’s the boy most likely. His reason: He is the jilted boy friend who has been done wrong one time to many.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Aaron could at least be the scource who told the police about an appointment Kocis/Drake. The Police knew very early about Drake. Cad stated on Jason's in the thread "Further financial woes ..." that he was asked about "Drake" when he was contacted by Pennsy Police. And we know he was contacted on Friday, 26th January.
    According to Timesleader and Citicens Voice Sean and Grant didn't speak to the police before Tuesday, 30th January. Atty Yates stated they have knowledge about man said to have been scheduled with Kocis.

  73. Hello All!
    Sunday AM here & just home from sunrise services @ bethel temple AG. some good praise & worship this am too.
    I have recieved 120 emails exactly, some angry with me regarding harlows blog & when it will be active. PLEASE be patient! is all I can say & without getting all teary eyed about trying to set up our destroyed pad, I ask you to simply put yourself in our shoes & please give us a few moments of silence...LOL
    Our Romanian based web guy has already designed the template. We are only uploading & taking rich imagery to include. I promise it will be live soon :-)
    as we speak Harlow is in a 9 hour escort call with Calvin and he asked me to remind everyone hes an escort first and foremost and this takes alot of time everyday....seeing clients. Remember this kid blows 6 loads of cumm each day most days and provides real life XXX porn to 10's of people weekly. Porn is second for him, BUT very important & this blog will be HIS OWN ...not mine. You will actually meet Harlow for the first time & I think you will LOVE him! After all, how could two of my type (arrogant & exxxtravagant) live together for 6 years in harmony if we were the same. hummmmm

    anyways Blog is cummin

    enjoy the Noreaster if your in the east!
    Joe

  74. You guys sure you want to continue defending Brent Corrigan?
    His most recently blog has managed to do the impossible... lower my opinion of him (and before you call me a Cobra lover.. my opinion of Cobra is not that great)
    Lets see Brent posted a nude picture of Brad Pitt. A picture of Brad Pitt that was taken without his permission. Then Brent goes on to mock the fact that guy doesn't have a big dick. This from the same guy who has spent the last year whining how models are treated etc.
    Has the traffic to his site really gotten that low that he needs to resort to this tactic?

  75. Thanks Elm. I was just wondering about that. Yeah, it seems unlikely that Bryan would be away for as long as he supposedly was and not have someone watch his home, check his mail, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  76. This is pure speculation.

    Is it possible that the reason Bryan Kocis often didn't his answer his door or respond to calls right away in the last few years is... because as Cobra became more successful he was spending more and more time in his basement working on the DVDs?

    Just a thought.

  78. Anon @ 7:33am - Yeah, I saw that blog post from Sean... Can't say I think it was appropriate of him to post those photos and the commentary was a little too derogatory for my taste. He says his comments were made in jest, although as we all know, humor doesn't transfer all that well on blogs. A lot can be misconstrued. You'd think Sean would have learned that by now... Oh well, it's Sean's site so I suppose he can post whatever he'd like to. Doesn't mean we have to like it and doesn't mean we have to agree with him. Looks like enough people called him on his comments though so he made a couple of clarifications/elaborations in the comment section.

  79. Hi again Elmysterio. I’ll reply to a few items, but not do all the quoting since it’s getting very long and maybe annoying to anyone else reading this page, with all the repetition.

    I’m sorry if you took offense at my quoting only parts of your text. I was simply trying to save space and quote only those parts to which I was responding directly. I indicated where I omitted anything with “...” and indicated where I added something to clarify with [brackets]. I wasn’t trying to twist your words. I’m really just curious about this case and was trying to join this discussion in a productive way, looking at what we know, think we know, and don’t know, and seeing where it leads. Which is what you’ve been doing here, and it’s very useful.

    I agree with you that there is likely to be more record somewhere of the Bryan-Drake appointment (if one existed) than just an e-mail from Bryan to a friend with the photo. It could be incoming e-mail, phone calls, and/or messenger chats for which Bryan might have saved transcripts. The police will have looked for these, and also tried to determine when and how Bryan got the Drake photo. The file’s meta-tags on Bryan’s PC might help. The filename might help – is Bryan’s copy named the same as it appears on Harlow’s escort site, for instance? If not, does the photo appear online somewhere else with the same filename? Or in a suspect’s computer? If the killer created a MySpace page, for example, in order to set up the bogus meeting, there could be a trace. If it’s been removed, it might be archived. If it was somewhere else online, Google might have the page archived. If the photo came via chat, Bryan’s PC might have a transcript showing when he received it and from whom. The chat service (Yahoo, MSN, etc.) could have more information about that account. The filename, time it was first saved on Bryan’s computer, and another information about that file, could prove important.

    Is there any chance that one of the sealed warrants is for records from Yahoo, Google, etc., and is sealed because it has specific account details in it? Just a thought.

    You mentioned that there’s supposed to be an incoming e-mail to Bryan with the photo from the Allentown area. I’m not sure we know this is what’s alleged. I thought Bryan’s friend said that Bryan believed Drake was from that area. We don’t really know why he thought that.

    Let’s remember that Bryan didn’t have to receive the Drake photo by e-mail. It could have been sent as a P2P file transfer in chat, or he could have been given a link to a webpage with it. On a similar point, Bryan’s friend might not have received the Drake photo by e-mail either. It could have been transferred in chat.

    I agree that your proposed killer, with access to Bryan’s PC and phone, could have created this trail ahead of time to implicate Harlow. We agree that in this scenario, he would need to be familiar with all the business dealings in order to select Harlow to implicate. My point is only that Harlow was a poor choice, due to his location and the likelihood that he’d have an alibi, given the 12-hour period he’d need to be away from VA. Even so, given the search of Harlow’s home, it’s been effective, at least initially.

    So if there is more evidence of a Bryan-Drake appointment, then it would be in the sealed warrant used to search Harlow’s house. You’ve said the police might have only the e-mail and nothing else, but you’ve also said there must have been more communication with Drake in order for Bryan to schedule the meeting. I agree with your second position. You believe it’s fabricated evidence, having nothing to do with Harlow directly, and of course it could be.

    I think you misunderstood my reference to framing Harlow after he actually did visit. I wasn’t proposing that, just tossing it out as something that could not have happened, for reasons we agree on. If Harlow had visited Bryan innocently, there would be no need for the Drake ruse, and he would have acknowledged being there, perhaps even identifying the killer. It makes no sense, and that was my point. Sorry for any confusion.

    I’ve acknowledged that Harlow might indeed have a solid alibi, have provided it, and been cleared. He would soon get his computers back and can go on with his life. It would be remarkable if he didn’t have an alibi, really, given the time span involved. Our difference is that you think the police are ignoring the alibi and pursuing him anyway. I find it more likely that the alibi isn’t as definitive as it might be. That doesn’t make Harlow guilty, just maybe unlucky not to have been seen in VA by an independent source who remembers it. There’s his client, of course, who might be reluctant to get involved but in a murder case I assume he’d have to. Perhaps the police don’t consider the client credible. Or perhaps Harlow is protecting the client’s privacy and refusing to release the name unless he’s indicted and it becomes absolutely necessary. Obviously if Harlow has an alibi then the police should move on to other suspects, as you say. Harlow could no more have killed Bryan from VA than Grant could have done it from CA.

    However, I can’t understand why the local police would be so intent on pursuing Harlow. If they want a simple conviction in order to avoid a trial that exposes local dealings, why not go after your proposed insider instead? They wouldn’t have to involve the FBI or the VA police. It could all be handled locally and contained. Your theory of a jealous insider threatened by the LSG settlement and Sean would appear much simpler to pursue. Then again, maybe they are. We’ve heard nothing for a while.

    Regarding the LSG/Cobra settlement, I think we have a similar understanding of what it is, or is likely to be. Sean can work as Brent Corrigan but only under the terms of the deal. As you put it, Bryan gets his percentage. This means that there isn’t much room for anyone else to cut a new deal with LSG, or at least not a good one. Anyone planning that kind of a deal would have seen it evaporate, or at least become less potentially profitable, due to the settlement.

    Let’s clarify one point, which is obvious but maybe bears stating: If there is any record of a Drake appointment ahead of the killing, then the murder was planned. It wasn’t an argument that got out of control, or an impulsive act. Whoever led Bryan to believe he was meeting Drake must have also planned to kill him, and to do it on the evening of 1/24. Agreed?

    This then means that the killer chose Harlow to implicate despite the likelihood he’d have an alibi in VA. We can’t say the killer wasn’t thinking it through or was acting in panic, since he was plotting the crime at least that day, and probably farther ahead. We’ll find out how far ahead the plot started if we eventually see more detail of the Drake-Bryan communication. The killer might have set up e-mail and chat accounts to pose as Drake. He might have gotten a disposable cellphone to call Bryan as Drake (without his voice being recognized, if he was close to Bryan). He’d try to plan some sort of alibi for 1/24 as best he could. He’d get the SUV somehow, since presumably neighbors would have recognized a car leaving the scene if it had been at the house frequently, or even continuously for days.

    If the killer had been more clever, he might have scheduled a bogus escorting engagement with Harlow, preferably as far north from VA as Harlow would have been willing to travel. This would have put Harlow in a deeper hole, having to claim (accurately) that he drove north to a client but can’t verify it because the client didn’t exist. Of course, that would create more potential evidence about where the calls or e-mails to Harlow came from, so perhaps it seemed too complicated or risky. Or maybe that’s exactly what happened, and it’s why Harlow’s alibi isn’t checking out as easily as it might have. Who knows?

    If I understand correctly, you are saying that it’s instead possible that there was no advance plotting, no prearranged Drake-Bryan appointment, and the killer gave police the Drake photo after the crime, not thinking clearly that he was implicating someone likely to have an alibi. If so, then there would be no further evidence relating to Harlow in the sealed warrant, as you suspect. And you’re right: finding out who says Bryan expected Drake should help clarify this.

    My apology for taking up so much space here. I’ll try to be briefer if I post again.

  81. you've got to ask this question of harlow ... who tipped the guys off at the harlow camp that they were going to be raided?
    no one home .... at 5am ... no laptop gee someone who spends $60,000 on an engine surely has a few laptops around - who's main contact as an escort is through the web.. who's promotion is through the web ... and someone who has 40 computers...
    its all a bit of a joke really...
    Mr Elms ... you really think that they are just looking for something from harlow that will convict ... I'm sure the authorities are aware that this harlow link is just a roose and that he's just cashing in on the whole escapade... in a rather tasteless way too
    as for arron ... geee the poor guy ... lots of speculation about him ... and brent sure don't like him - re the cross eyed remarks...
    its getting mighty confusing ...
    as for the brad post at BCO - yeah I agree what a hypocrite... i guess brent does'nt understand that in the real world the size of ya cock don't make a difference to the kind of person you are ... geee who cares if brads pic shows a dick too small to make brent happy... how many $$$ has brent given to charity, how many "children" has brent saved ... oh thats right at the Bco camp charity begins with brent ...

  82. according to the Virginia Beach paper, the SEARCH WARRANT to seach Harlow's House was UNSEALED, only the affidavits in support of the search warrant were resealed.

    So, SOMEONE can call Virginia Beach Court on Monday and ask about the DATE the search warrant petition filed.

    If the search warrant petition was filed on a date before the anon poster on Jason's blog allegedly came up with Harlow's id, THEN, you will know that the police knew who Harlow Cuadra was BEFORE they blasted Halow's picture in the press and across the internet.

    The Police knew who Harlow was from Brent Corrigan and they put out Harlow's picture because they were trying to get Harlow to panic and run.

    Harlow Cuadra was supposed to die in a hail of bullets on the morning his house was searched.

    NOTE: Brent Corrigan's brief post to Jody W's blog that "Harlow and his Boyfriend were ON THE RUN" (obviously, wishful thinking on the part of Mr. Corrigan). How did Corrigan know at that time that Harlow's lawyers were refusing to allow Harlow to talk to the police? Because, Corrigan had fingered Harlow to the Luzerne County police and was in communication with Luzerne County on THE HUNT FOR HARLOW.

    We didn't even know that the police were trying to talk to Harlow with Corrigan posted that "harlow was on the run". Harlow's lawyer had not publicly stated that he would not allow his clients to talk to police when Corrigan posted his "harlo on the run" comment.

    Corrigan is so afraid of Luzene County, he fingered Harlow to the cops.

    VIRGINIA BEACH - A judge Wednesday refused to unseal the affidavit of a search warrant executed in February at the home of a gay-porn star, who has been linked to the slaying of a Pennsylvania producer of gay pornographic films.

    Circuit Judge Thomas Shadrick said releasing the contents of the lengthy affidavit could jeopardize the ongoing investigation into the killing of Bryan Kocis, 44, at his Dallas Township home on Jan. 24.

    However, the judge unsealed the warrant itself, a court document that indicates authorities searched the Stratem Court home of Harlow Cuadra in regards to a killing. The document does not detail what specific items authorities were looking for.

    A regular poster on this board, CAD, stated on Jason's in the thread "Further financial woes ..." that he was asked about "Drake" when he was contacted by Pennsy Police. And we know he was contacted on Friday, 26th January.
    So the Police knew very early about Drake.
    According to Atty Yates in TimesTribune and Citizens Voice (31. January) Sean and Grant didn't speak to the police before Tuesday, 30th January.
    And Harlow stated in Times Tribune on 7th February: "my lawyer, he doesn’t want me to say anything."

  84. Jody Wheeler's post claiming that Corrigan said "Harlow was on the run" was apparently dated February 13, 2007.

    So, it is possibly that Corrigan KNEW on 2/13/07 that Harlow's house had been searched and that Harlow was not home at the time - hence, that "Harlow was on the run"

    The fact that the search of Harlow's house was not public knowledge at the time might be the reason the blog entry was changed/deleted.

    btw, Harlow's Lawyer was specificly quoted in the press as saying "Harlow was NOT on the run" but that he didn't allow his clients to talk directly to police. The only party claiming that Harlow was on the run at that time was Brent Corrigan.

    I'm glad you bring this up, Anon. Yes, Jody's post was made on the 13th of February. I've wondered since that post was first made just what Brent meant and how Brent came to the idea that Harlow and Joe were on the run. Certainly they didn't tell him that as they weren't on the run. The only possibilities that I see as to why Sean would even think that would be that he knew the raid had taken place on the 10th of February and he knew that Joe and Harlow were not home at the time. Now, the only way he could have known that is if the police told Sean that. And in my opinion, the only way the police would have told Sean or his lawyer anything like this is if it was Sean who was the person who told them about Harlow and Joe. That right there causes me concern because just what did Sean tell the authorities about Harlow and Joe? And how much of what Sean said did the police take at face value? Remember, folks, this was soon after the murder and the police may not have known, at the time, Sean's past dealings with Bryan and all the allegations and also how Sean has lied about a good many things over the past couple of years. The police just wouldn't have known about all that, so soon after the murder. They wouldn't have known, as we do, just what Sean does. Could they have trusted Sean from the beginning? I think they could have. We know Sean and Grant decided to lawyer up before talking with police and we heard from the newspaper articles that they had info about a "model" Bryan was to meet the night he died. All this leads me to a spot I'd rather not be. Elm, you ask with the title of this blog post, "Who Framed Harlow Cuadra?" Could the answer be right in front of us? Could it have been Sean?

  89. Just to clarify the po po new about Drake from very early on. as I do recall Cad mentioning that he was asked about a Drake the date 1/26/2007 would ring true Cadc spoke to the po po on the friday after but he did not know who he was. As far as Sean or Gran dropping a dime on Harlow, they did not speak to the po po until the got an attorney. yates their civi attoerney might have dropped dime of the record. Harlow was not OFICIALY ID'ed until at the earliest 1/29/07. this was the day the warrents came out. here is my major point of contention with all of this. was there a e-mail? was ther just a picture on his hard drive? every news article I read it say's different. so what ever they are holding in those sealed affidavits had better be good or Luzerne County is going down.

  90. Bryn I remember the early word at Jasons was "an associate of Bryans" notified Police about Drake" now Sean,Grant and Lee were not associates. Cad was not and as you point out when cad was talking to Police They Knew about Drake. So who was the Associate we had been led to believe Cobra was a one man operation. But Aaron Phelps is NOW involved with Cobra and he has had a LONG off and on relationship with Bryan. Who else but Aaron could have been that Associate who contacted Police with "Info" on Harlow. Bryan certainly did not have "Many" associates. The only thing that gives me pause about Aaron,,, Have the police been so slow that they did not check Aaron's alibi out or did they think because he was a "special friend" that he was not a suspect? I don't know when a wife or husband ends up murdered Police theory is 3 out of 4 times its an upset or cheated on spouse that is the culprit,,should we expect gay relationships to be any different,,,,

  91. Luzerne County made a big mistake going BEYOND their borders.

    The FBI, the US Justice Department, The State of Virginia and the City of Virginia Beach can all cover their asses from lawsuits and misconduct charges by laying the blame for the search of Harlow's house on Luzerne County

    So, either the FBI, The Justice Department, the State of Virginia and the City of Virginia Beach are all going down or LUZERNE COUNTY IS GOING DOWN.

    Well, technically speaking, all three were "associates" of Bryan's. Having signed the settlement papers just a few days prior to the murder, they were now in a partnership, thus it could be said, they were associates.

  95. bryn technically yes L,S,& G were associates. BUT would the Police have referred to them this way on Jan 26th when most people including the police were ignorant of the settlement. Indeed all the police knew is that LSG and Cobra had been in a protracted LEGAL FIGHT. Very unlikely then that the police would have said Associate about any one in San Diego.

    ReplyDelete
  97. We shouldn't be over concerned about the strict definition of the word associate. The police could have said acquaintance, colleague, business partner or any number of alternatives.

    Anyone close to Bryan would have told the police that he had just signed the settlement after 18 months of disagreement. Anyone that did not know that fact was obviously not within his inner circle.

    That the settlement had been agreed only became public knowledge several days after Bryan had been murdered.

    I must confess I found your post quite humorous. To think that you would try this is just brilliant. But you see we are not using the picture as definitive documentation of Brent’s age. It is being shown as representative of his age. We here at Rants From A Mysterious Place do realize that a photo jpeg would not stand up in court as proof of someone’s age. We are using it here to show that the subject in question has shown his true age with the said photo. So in the future if you want a cocktail please be advised that you must carry your ID with you. It is also the law that you should have valid ID with you at all times. Best of luck with your future cocktail endeavors and remember Don’t Drink and Drive. The Life you save may be mine.

    This is a post that I put in the comment section of Brent’s blog to the post that you are referencing. I can understand that you may be upset about it but I do really think he was just making a joke. It just did not come of as anticipated. A real pity I might add.


    Well now Brent this is a fine mess you have gotten your self into now isn’t it. So how do we fix this? Well just so you all know I am a peniologist. Yes a peniologist, the study of the human male penis is my vocation. I have been doing this for many years and I have to say this about Brad Pitts penis and I concur with Brent on a few of his observations. Mr. Pitt has a very nice pair of low hangers and an ass to die for. He also has the most fabulous ab’s I have seen in quite some time. As for his penis I would say it is above average in length somewhere between 6.5 inches and 7.25 inches long and average in girth. Now to view naked men there are several different variables to consider. His height, Brad is around 6 foot tall. His weight I would say 165 to 175 pounds. The camera perspective, this photo was taken from above and from in front of him. To get a true representative on the male penis size from a photo it needs to be a profile shot. Cameras only film in 2 dimensions, those are being height and width. So you don’t have depth as a reference. So this photo is really not representative of the true size of his massive man bone. Yes there have been many snide remarks made about the diminutive appearance of Brads love stick, but the many women who have experienced its pleasures have never complained. So people lets cut Brent some slack on this. He was only trying to make a funny.

  102. Mj you have a valid point. Could Sean be the one who is trying to frame Harlow? Well we know Sean spoke to Bryan the morning he was killed. We also know Cad had an IM conversation with him. We have recently been informed by J-bee, that one of Bryan’s other business partners contacted him. And the last person known to speak with Bryan before he was killed was Lee from LSG media. So this leaves the question did Bryan tell Sean he was meeting a model? Did he tell Cad he was meeting a model? Did he tell Lee he was meting a model? Or did the associate who received the supposed e-mail tell the police he was expecting a model. If Sean, Lee or Cad knew of this meeting than we can assume that someone set this up. But if it was Sean who Bryan told I would think that they would have known it was Harlow from the start because Sean is reported to of said in the Jody Wheeler piece that he recommended Harlow to Bryan. So this would believe that Bryan would have told Sean on the phone that he was meeting with Harlow. But why was Harlow referred to as “Drake”. Who ever received the “e-mail” from Bryan did not know the real name of the model in the photograph. Or they did but they were just trying to confuse matters by using a different name. They knew that when Sean saw the picture of Harlow he would freak and get an attorney and tell the police the name of the “Person of Interest”. As to Sean’s statement on “Harlow and Joe really f#$%up” this is pure supposition but I think it is referring to the e-mail that was sent out by Boybatter on the 14th of January. Now to the matter of Sean possibly knowing about the search of Harlow and Joe’s home. The police or his attorney could have contacted Sean and asked if he had heard from them or if he knew of their whereabouts. They could of also informed him of circumstances leading up to the questions of their whereabouts. Now if you were asked those questions would you make the same assumption? Who ever supplied the picture of Harlow to the police would have known that it would set of such a chain of events. This case has a very intricate and twisted little plot going for it and it will only get more twisted.

  106. Elm, 7:18 PM, you were a little hard on Anon 12:11. He was clearly making fun of the stupidity of Brian Kocis for accepting a digitized ID as proof of age. He knew that was wrong (and inaccurate), but it didn't really matter. He used it for three years to sell his kiddie porn. He only became 2257 compliant when Brent permitted him to have Brent's birth certificate. Brian had been forced to make this deal. Without that he was operating a criminal endeavor. That is why he needed it so badly. That is part of what forced him into making a deal.
    Of course, many others did not like the deal because it forced him to admit he did not have 2257 proof as required. That admission was not good for a lot of people on a lot of levels.

  107. Hey J-bee no hard feelings I can understand your curiosity about this case.

    So let’s see where to start. Well the alleged e-mail is a good place. We are not sure if there was one. No one has ever mentioned who received it. Also there is the alleged meeting with a model. I don’t recall anyone ever saying that they were told about a model when they spoke to Bryan. I seem to remember that the "meeting with the model" statement was made by the police to the news media. Also the Police through the media made the statement that they believe the model was from the Allentown area. Now I have read various news reports on the origin of the picture of "Drake" some say that it was an e-mail and some say that the picture was found on the hard-drive of Bryan’s computer. What are we to believe? We were also told that Bryan told an associate that he was meeting a model the evening he was killed. We do not know who this associate is. Did the associate provide the name "Drake" to the police? And the police searched the hard-drive of Bryan’s computer looking for a picture file with the name Drake? Or did the associate have a copy of the picture? There are various ways to electronically send a picture to someone. You have named a few of them. So if the picture was sent through an instant messenger service then there may be a record of that. As far as phone records and electronic communication records there are search warrants for those. These warrants are not sealed and were released to the public allegedly by "mistake".
    You state that Harlow was a poor choice for the killer to attempt to frame for this. I do not agree with you there. The killer would know of the association of Harlow and LSG media. They could have been aware of the dinner that they attended in Las Vegas or they could have received the e-mail that the Boybatter sent out to their subscribers. January 14th 2007 Mark @boybatter sends out an E-mail heralding their meeting with Brent Corrigan and the possibility of them working together
    If you were aware of this information you would be aware that it would lead to LSG Media. This connection would directly lead you to the Civil Litigation between the two companies. Giving the police an apparent motive for the murder. There was one Problem the companies had come to an agreement and the civil case was resolved. So since LSG had no viable reason to want Bryan dead. All eyes then would fall on Harlow. Harlow’s only crime in this whole thing is he wanted to be a big porn star. Oh and I forgot about the tacky self-promotion on all the Blogs. "Kisses MJT you know we love yah". So the police have the picture of "Drake" which was given to them by an unnamed associate of Bryan. Who tells the police that he believes that the picture of the model is someone whose last name might be "Drake"? The police spend a few days trying to get an ID on this "Drake" and they decide to go public with the picture. On the 2nd of February when the picture goes public it stirs fear in a few people. Harlow for one because he is trying to figure out how he got involved in all this. And Sean and Grant because they know Harlow after meeting with him and Joe in Las Vegas. Here is your connection and the reason for framing Harlow. LSG MEDIA’s attorney Yates says that his clients have information on the supposed model in a report to the news media. And that they are going to speak to an attorney before talking to the authorities. Sean Grant Harlow and Joe all get attorneys and we on the Blogasphere all go hog wild trying to figure out who this ‘person of Interest is’. We get a break and some anonymous poster gives us a name on the 5th or 6th of February. So we do more searching and we find out all there is to find out about Harlow. This is my point of contention with the sealed affidavits for the search warrants. The warrants were issued on the 29th of January but the police did not find out who Harlow was until at the earliest the 2nd of February. Yet the police get a search warrant and search his home on the 10th of February. You also make the observation about Sean’s statement on the Jody wheeler post Two Pair from February 13, 2007. Where he says "Harlow and Joe really fucked it all up," I can not speak for Sean so this is pure supposition but I believe he is referring to the e-mail Sent: Sunday, January 14, 2007 9:33 AMA HUGE UPDATE FOR XXX SITE www.boybatter.com is thatHarlow and Mark just returned from AVN awards in lasVegas where we sat down with Porn Twink mega star"Brent Corrigan" and discussed a partnership infilming and collaboration in porn site efforts and dvddistribution! WOW...so look forward to excitingannouncements as we follow down this unknown path withsome of the biggest names in our indusrty :-)
    This was during a crucial time in the negotiations with Cobra Video.

    Harlow’s alibi: You seem to question the validity of Harlow’s alibi. His attorneys would have more than likely given this information to the police. Whether the police choose to accept it is beyond me. As you said Harlow may no longer be a suspect in this murder case. But it still remains that someone implicated him in this and I am just trying to show why.

    You ask why the local police are so intent on pursuing Harlow as a suspect? Harlow has never been a suspect in this case he was simply a ‘Person of interest’. It would appear that the information held in the sealed affidavits would shed more light on why they still are looking at Harlow as a person of interest. I would think that they would not have a valid reason to search his home and this is why they will not exonerate him in this matter. Also the other suspects may live in states that have tougher laws when it come to getting search warrants based on limited evidence.

    As far as the settlement agreement between LSG Media and Cobra video it would not impede Sean and Harlow working together. The agreement was between LSG and Cobra. Boybatter could work with Sean under their own company name and not be affected by the agreement. Sean would have to pay licensing fees from his proceeds but Boybatter would not. If it were a project done by LSG media than Cobra would be the distributor and would retain their percentage as a fee from LSG media. So they could work together and all would be happy.

    You ask about any record of communications before the appointment between Bryan and Drake. You also seem to think that if there was prior confirmation of the scheduled meeting that it would mean that the murder was planned. But you also said in your prior post that if there was a meeting and it did not go well. That Drake could have killed Bryan in a fit of anger. Which would mean that the murder was unplanned.
    So your theory is just as confusing as the rest of this case.

    So we are back to why frame Harlow. Well I explained that in the second paragraph and maybe I jumped ahead. As for the Drake/Bryan communication the police seem to be looking in the wrong direction if they are to find that they need to look on Bryan’s computer for it and trace it from there.

    If the killer had been more clever, he might have scheduled a bogus escorting engagement with Harlow, preferably as far north from VA as Harlow would have been willing to travel. This would have put Harlow in a deeper hole, having to claim (accurately) that he drove north to a client but can’t verify it because the client didn’t exist. Of course, that would create more potential evidence about where the calls or e-mails to Harlow came from, so perhaps it seemed too complicated or risky. Or maybe that’s exactly what happened, and it’s why Harlow’s alibi isn’t checking out as easily as it might have. Who knows?

    Well your theory is all fine and good but you have to understand that this is not a cash only business. You would need a credit card to procure the services of Harlow. You would also have to pay travel expenses and any other expenses incurred by Harlow to make the trip. Apparently you are not familiar with how there business operates you should check out their web site they spell it out there.

    If I understand correctly, you are saying that it’s instead possible that there was no advance plotting, no prearranged Drake-Bryan appointment, and the killer gave police the Drake photo after the crime, not thinking clearly that he was implicating someone likely to have an alibi. If so, then there would be no further evidence relating to Harlow in the sealed warrant, as you suspect. And you’re right: finding out who says Bryan expected Drake should help clarify this.

    As for your summation, I am agreeable with it to a point. The supposed model that is spoken of could have been anyone. Bryan ran a studio with several models and anyone of them could have been who he was expecting. And the "actual model" who is mentioned by Bryan could be the one who killed him. And Harlow was implicated in this murder by this other model. Also of note this model could be the associate who claims that Harlow was the model who meet with Bryan. Do you see where I’m going with this, there was never a models name mentioned except by the associate who identified Harlow’s picture as Drake.

  109. Of course you were not. I was! Facetiousness carries over the net about as well a cynicism or sarcasm. You keep going. Oh, did you notice Bryn made a comment at BCO? An interesting assembly of international intelligencia this young man has supporting him.
    I totally discounted Harlow very early on so I see little here to comment on. Be well.

    hehehehhe its just so weird that all this happened after all these blokes met at the AVN ... and Bryan must have known about the harlow deal - cause i'm sure everyone knows everything ... guess we'll see what the elusive harlow says when his TRUE blog appears

  111. Hopefully someone will call Virginia Beach Court tomorow to find out the date the court action was initiated there to get search warrants to search Harlow Cuadra's house. The search WARRANTS were unsealed (the affidavits were not).

    The date the court action was initiated to get search warrants in VA will then show when the police knew who Harlow Cuadra was.

    MY POSITION. If the court records in Virginia Beach show that Luzerne County Police knew who Harlow was BEFORE they circulated Harlow's picture to the press, THEN, Harlow will walk even if he did have something to do with Kocis' death.

    You can't set someone up to be possibly killed in a 5:00 am police raid and not be viewed as having some underhanded motive for doing so.

    Please cite an independent source (Not Brent C) that confirms that the owner of Cobra accepted documentation via email. You are correct that would not be an acceptable means of obtaining an ID and it's very alarming to think that the Feds didn't act on that and the alleged child porn that resulted.

    Also Child Porn is a federal offense. No matter how much pull Cobra is alleged to have had within his community. He would have still been arrested.

    One of the big things that muddies this whole thing is that there has been no independent source of information providing proven and verified facts.

  115. Hi again Elm,

    Assuming Bryan did send the Drake photo ahead of time to someone clearly unconnected with the crime, it won’t matter whether it went via e-mail or other means. Reports of police receiving a copy from the associate and also finding it on Bryan’s PC aren’t mysterious; they’re exactly what you’d expect. The associate said Bryan sent it, and when police search the PC, sure enough there’s Bryan’s copy too. As I noted, computer forensic data from that file (when saved, how received, whether renamed, etc.) could prove important. I agree completely that the police needed to find the photo on Bryan’s PC and trace it from there, as best they can, wherever it leads.

    As you say, if there was only one associate naming Drake to police, and if there is no other record of Drake in Bryan’s PC (e-mail, chat transcripts, whatever), and if the associate had opportunity to commit the crime, that becomes interesting. But even if everything is just as portrayed in the media -- with advance notice of the Drake appointment -- it only means that the killer plotted the murder, rather than implicating Harlow afterwards. It doesn’t negate your theory of the crime, it only makes the killing premeditated and its planning more detailed.

    Yes, I say Harlow is a poor choice to frame, but my only reason is one that you didn’t mention: distance from the crime scene and the likelihood of a solid, verifiable alibi. However, you’ve provided a good summary of all the other reasons to implicate him, which I don’t dispute at all.

    As I and others have noted, the 1/29 warrant might have specified a “John Doe” (aka Drake) who was alleged to have visited Bryan, and merely been updated when police discovered that Drake=Harlow. I don’t know if they would need a new warrant, but I doubt it. (Maybe someone else here knows?) Again, there’s probably no mystery about making the ID on 2/2 and applying it to the 1/29 warrant.

    I didn’t refer again to Sean’s “fucked it up” comment since your explanation is viable, although speculative. We don’t know what Sean had in mind. It would be interesting to know if Bryan was aware of the BoyBatter announcement.

    You are right that in public statements from police Harlow is a “person of interest.” Since his home was raided, I inadvertently used “suspect.” He might be cleared of all suspicion by now. You say police won’t exonerate him, but consider the possibility that they have and he’s agreed to keep quiet about it while police pursue other leads. Clearly he’s enjoying the notoriety, or at least trying to leverage it in his business, so it’s not inconceivable he’d agree.

    As you note, I earlier speculated about a Harlow-Bryan meeting going badly, then later said if the Drake appointment was set up then the murder was planned (whoever is guilty). These do conflict, but only because I thought through more carefully the implications of a bogus appointment with Drake. If Harlow had gone to meet Bryan innocently, he wouldn’t have posed as Drake. If someone else set up the Drake appointment, he planned to kill Bryan and implicate Harlow. Or if there was no appointment (one of your options), then the associate who claimed there was and directed police to Drake afterwards is likely the killer or a conspirator. I’ve asserted no theory of the crime as mine. I’ve merely been trying to explore many possibilities to see which ones fit what we know or can be eliminated.

    Along those same lines, my idea of luring an innocent Harlow closer to the scene with a bogus appointment was just speculation about how better to have framed him. I would say though that if it was an elaborate and planned frame, the killer should have been able to overcome the obstacles to scheduling a bogus escorting appointment. Anyway, there’s no reason to believe that happened, from what we know.

    You seem to believe that the search warrant remains sealed because there’s little evidence in it. I find this unlikely. The VA judge referred to lengthy affidavits about the investigation, as I recall, when keeping it sealed. The weeklong delay between the ID of Harlow as Drake and the search might imply a period of collecting additional evidence to justify the search. There might be circumstantial evidence in the warrant, which doesn’t mean Harlow’s guilty. There might be evidence fabricated by your proposed killer. But it’s not credible that PA police can go to VA and present nothing more than a photo pulled from the Internet and get a search done. If the search was approved on only that evidence, it’s the VA judge who authorized it who’s responsible, not PA investigators. Comments here about Luzerne County “going down” are ridiculous. Unless PA police fabricated evidence to get the search, they’ll be fine.

    For what it’s worth, here’s another observation pointing away from Harlow and towards your theory. Why would Harlow use that photo in setting up an appointment with Bryan? Sure, the guy showing up that evening would need to match the photo Bryan had seen, but Harlow could have used one that wasn’t available on his website and so easily recognized. I suppose you could speculate that he thought its easy availability would present the explanation that anyone could have gotten it online, which is the first thing he’s reported to have said, and true. Still, if Harlow were planning the murder then he should have found a photo online of someone else, a photo that resembled him just enough to get into Bryan’s house. Better yet, someone in Eastern PA. Then the police would have started by investigating some other innocent kid.

    Finally, to repeat one point I think is important, I think you are distracting yourself too much with the idea that there was no Drake appointment and Harlow was only implicated after the crime by the killer. You might be right, but Harlow could have been set up ahead of time and your theory still works. Advance planning could also prepare more circumstantial evidence pointing to Harlow (phone calls, etc.), which would explain the VA search much better than the idea that it was baseless and the police and courts in two states are all incompetent, corrupt, or both. It explains the associate knowing of the Drake appointment, just as reported, rather than his being a guilty party claiming to have an e-mail that never existed. It just makes more sense all around.

    I think the simpler explanations will turn out to be what happened, when we find out who did this.

  116. Hey J-bee so here is a reply but no more long ones please lets pick a subject and deal with it and move on to the next one these are hogging to much space.

    Hi again Elm,

    J-bee said: Assuming Bryan did send the Drake photo ahead of time to someone clearly unconnected with the crime, it won’t matter whether it went via e-mail or other means.

I agree completely that the police needed to find the photo on Bryan’s PC and trace it from there, as best they can, wherever it leads.

    Elmysterio Said: So you are under the assumption that this murder was premeditated? And it was not one that was just a spur of the moment heat of the passion killing? It would appear if as you say the picture were sent to the "associate" days or even hours before the killing that it was planned. But we don’t know when the picture was sent or how much advanced planning was involved before the alleged interview with the model. We only know that an associate referred to the model as "Drake" and this associate said that Bryan was to have had a meeting with Drake on the night he was killed. We know of 4 people that had contact with Bryan on the day he was killed but did he tell any of them about this appointment with Drake. Or did he say that a model was coming over and mention no name? So you see this is still a point where we don’t know who said what to who.

    J-bee said: As you say, if there was only one associate naming Drake to police, and if there is no other record of Drake in Bryan’s PC (e-mail, chat transcripts, whatever), and if the associate had opportunity to commit the crime, that becomes interesting. But even if everything is just as portrayed in the media -- with advance notice of the Drake appointment -- it only means that the killer plotted the murder, rather than implicating Harlow afterwards. It doesn’t negate your theory of the crime, it only makes the killing premeditated and its planning more detailed.

    Elmysterio said: As I said before we do not know when the picture was sent to the associate and we don’t know who the associate is and we don’t even know for sure if the picture was found on Bryan’s hard-drive. What we do know is that the police issued a picture of "Drake" to the media and said that it was a person of interest in the murder of Bryan Kocis. The police said the picture was of a prespective model who it was said was supposed to meet with Bryan the night he was murdered. And that an associate of Bryan Kocis gave them the information about the meeting. The police said the person of interest was someone who might have the last name of "Drake" and he was possibly from the Allentown area of Pennsylvania. Whether there were Chat, e-mail or phone confirmations of this meeting that information has not been released to the public by the police.

    J-Bee said:Yes, I say Harlow is a poor choice to frame, but my only reason is one that you didn’t mention: distance from the crime scene and the likelihood of a solid, verifiable alibi. However, you’ve provided a good summary of all the other reasons to implicate him, which I don’t dispute at all.

    Elmysterio said: I made the mistake of assuming that you would understand that would be part of the equation of why he was not a good suspect for this murder when I said he had an alibi for the time of this murder. Your statement as I understood was why implicate Harlow. Which is what I was commenting on. This is your exact wording: This then means that the killer chose Harlow to implicate despite the likelihood he’d have an alibi in VA. We can’t say the killer wasn’t thinking it through or was acting in panic, since he was plotting the crime at least that day, and probably farther ahead. We’ll find out how far ahead the plot started if we eventually see more detail of the Drake-Bryan communication. The killer might have set up e-mail and chat accounts to pose as Drake. He might have gotten a disposable cellphone to call Bryan as Drake (without his voice being recognized, if he was close to Bryan). He’d try to plan some sort of alibi for 1/24 as best he could. He’d get the SUV somehow, since presumably neighbors would have recognized a car leaving the scene if it had been at the house frequently, or even continuously for days.

    Elmysterio said: You seem to be under the impression that this was a planned murder. Which it could be but then again why use a knife? Use a gun its quicker and less messy. Why kill him in his own home if it was so planned out? The elaborate scheme you speak of could most likely have been done somewhere else other than his home in Dallas Township PA. A place where you would stand a higher degree of being caught than if you just did it in some random place. You could entice him to meet with you somewhere and kill him there. The SUV and the disposable Cell-phone would all be traceable. You seem to think this was a big planned out murder plot but it really does not appear so. Bryan was killed in his home by someone he knew and trusted otherwise he would not have let this person in to his home. It has been stated by several sources that Bryan was not the type to just let anyone in his home. If there was a model he was meeting on the evening that he was killed it would either be one he already knew or one that he had prior contact with. And you can be sure that there would be more pictures of this model on his computer that low pixel grainy little picture that the police have.

    J-bee said: As I and others have noted, the 1/29 warrant might have specified a "John Doe" (aka Drake) who was alleged to have visited Bryan, and merely been updated when police discovered that Drake=Harlow. I don’t know if they would need a new warrant, but I doubt it. (Maybe someone else here knows?) Again, there’s probably no mystery about making the ID on 2/2 and applying it to the 1/29 warrant.

    Elmysterio said:Yes that is a possibility but the police would also need a search warrant for his housemate as well. Because they are not a married couple (you see Gay people are not allowed to get married in this country for the most part) and that would force them to get 2 separate search warrants one for Harlow and one for Joe.

    J-bee said:I didn’t refer again to Sean’s "fucked it up" comment since your explanation is viable, although speculative. We don’t know what Sean had in mind. It would be interesting to know if Bryan was aware of the BoyBatter announcement.

    Elmysterio said:You just did referrer to it. As far as Bryan knowing about the Boybatter announcement you would have to ask him ( oops my bad he was killed)

    J-bee said:You are right that in public statements from police Harlow is a "person of interest." Since his home was raided, I inadvertently used "suspect." He might be cleared of all suspicion by now. You say police won’t exonerate him, but consider the possibility that they have and he’s agreed to keep quiet about it while police pursue other leads. Clearly he’s enjoying the notoriety, or at least trying to leverage it in his business, so it’s not inconceivable he’d agree.

    Elmysterio said: That is a really interesting theory but I am not so sure about that. They use a swat team to do a 5:ooam raid on his home. They remove Harlow and Joe’s personal property and ransack Harlow and Joe’s home and cause some serious damage to Harlow and Joe’s home. Yeah right he was exonerated and asked to keep quiet and let the police go about their investigation so that he could reap the rewards of bad publicity. Yeah that’s it that’s what is really going on here. Harlow is such a publicity whore that he does not care how he becomes famous. Get real and if you believe that here’s a great deal for you 5000 acres of beach front property 50 miles west of San Francisco for penny’s on the dollar.

    J-bee said: As you note, I earlier speculated about a Harlow-Bryan meeting going badly, then later said if the Drake appointment was set up then the murder was planned (whoever is guilty).

I’ve asserted no theory of the crime as mine. I’ve merely been trying to explore many possibilities to see which ones fit what we know or can be eliminated.

    Elmysterio said: With this case as well as most other murder cases they never really make sense. This case is no different in the respect that we don’t have all the detail’s as the police are not releasing them. What I have stated based on what I have read and have investigated and found evidence of is that this was not some kind of elaborate murder plot and most likely done by someone who had close ties to the victim. The reason that this case is so interesting is that it has all the necessary elements for a sensational murder case. Sex, intrigue, mystery, violence, underage porn, possible police corruption and the topper is that it involves hot gay men and porn which just makes it salacious.

    J-bee said: Along those same lines, my idea of luring an innocent Harlow closer to the scene with a bogus appointment was just speculation about how better to have framed him. I would say though that if it was an elaborate and planned frame, the killer should have been able to overcome the obstacles to scheduling a bogus escorting appointment. Anyway, there’s no reason to believe that happened, from what we know.

    Elmysterio said:As I explained in my previous post to do what you are implying is not that easy. There would be a paper trail that would lead right to you if you did this.

    J-bee said: You seem to believe that the search warrant remains sealed because there’s little evidence in it. I find this unlikely. The VA judge referred to lengthy affidavits about the investigation, as I recall, when keeping it sealed. The weeklong delay between the ID of Harlow as Drake and the search might imply a period of collecting additional evidence to justify the search.

If the search was approved on only that evidence, it’s the VA judge who authorized it who’s responsible, not PA investigators. Comments here about Luzerne County "going down" are ridiculous. Unless PA police fabricated evidence to get the search, they’ll be fine.

    Elmysterio said: Well we all know that the police have fabricated evidence and will keep on fabricating evidence to convict people that they deem as guilty. I have witnessed it on several occasions and would not put it past the police to modify evidence to make a suspect fit the crime. So that is not a viable excuse about the Judge in Virginia would not sign a warrant that had less than credible evidence to back it up. The police do it all the time and the evidence in most cases gets thrown out of court. You are not aware of the justice system as to how it relates to minorities in this society. We are always considered guilty until proven innocent.

    J-bee said: For what it’s worth, here’s another observation pointing away from Harlow and towards your theory. Why would Harlow use that photo in setting up an appointment with Bryan? Sure, the guy showing up that evening would need to match the photo Bryan had seen, but Harlow could have used one that wasn’t available on his website and so easily recognized.

Better yet, someone in Eastern PA. Then the police would have started by investigating some other innocent kid.

    Elmysterio said: J-bee that is just twisted logic and it is quite interesting how you say this is pointing away from Harlow but you stay right on target as to say that he would use a picture of someone else to fool Bryan. I take it you do not have a back ground in modeling or pornography. You see Harlow Is a Porn model and he knows what kind of pictures you would send to a perspective employer if you want to get a job. In the porn industry they require better pictures than the little low pixel picture that the police have of Harlow. The producer, director and or the casting director would want a much higher resolution photo. And more than one of the model showing just their panties. They want a head shot a back shot and a few naked shots in various states of arousal. So to assume that Harlow, a established porn star would approach a company with that weak little picture and expect to get a job let alone an interview is ridicules to say the least. Why would Harlow plan a murder of a man that he did not even know? You really have to be kidding me. First you say that: For what it’s worth, here’s another observation pointing away from Harlow and towards your theory. Then in that same paragraph you give all the reasons why he should not have used the picture he did. You are giving me a head ache.

    J-bee said: Finally, to repeat one point I think is important, I think you are distracting yourself too much with the idea that there was no Drake appointment and Harlow was only implicated after the crime by the killer. You might be right, but Harlow could have been set up ahead of time and your theory still works. Advance planning could also prepare more circumstantial evidence pointing to Harlow (phone calls, etc.), which would explain the VA search much better than the idea that it was baseless and the police and courts in two states are all incompetent, corrupt, or both. It explains the associate knowing of the Drake appointment, just as reported, rather than his being a guilty party claiming to have an e-mail that never existed. It just makes more sense all around.

    Elmysterio said: I have said before and repeatedly that this murder does not appear to be all that planned out because of how it was committed. But you make a valid point that the killer could have had his eye on Harlow BUT only from Jan 14 till the 24th 10 days That is a lot of time,,,Whoever hatched this decided Sunday Jan 14th to kill Bryan. You should read my time line and for referrence. And used the connection between Harlow and Sean to make him the patsy for this murder knowing full well it would lead directly back to Sean and Grant. So the murderer has to be someone close enough to Bryan to know the details of all that transpired during the month of January. Hmmm I wonder who that could be?

    J-bee said:I think the simpler explanations will turn out to be what happened, when we find out who did this.

    Elmysterio said: Some of your explanations are simple and some are not. But I still say that Harlow was set up. You appear to think that this was a grand plot to do away with Bryan and you could be right. but at the direction this case is going seems be pointing straight at Harlow who has said that he did not know Bryan Kocis and had no reason to kill him and I don't think he did.

  118. Diligently working Harlow is on his star studed blog :-)~...
    Harlow and I along with Calvin just returned from a dude ranch in Montana where we thought we were just spending time in R & R a lo and behold. here we are nearly 70 miles from the nearest gas station and probably the same from the nearest "hot spot" we meet a Cowboy who almost instantly recognizes Harlow and asks, OMG are you ready for this..."Are you guys on the RUN."
    I have to admit I almost slipped on my spilt tea. But this gentleman burst out with laughter and said, "Boy...see my shotgun over there on the wall?...If you are guilty I aint a US Senator."
    Yes so we went horseback riding with Senator " " of " ".
    Turns out Harlow and I spent the afternoon riding a different cowboy, and this Senator actually paid for our entire little vacation in an unplanned Escort booking. LOL Also...Harlow is heading out there again tomorrow for some more trail riding :-)
    Just a Hello from all of us here in Norfolk today, and we look forward to all of your enlightening and exciting comments on Harlows blog. www.harlowcuadraonline.com

  120. Hey people .... some long long posts here ... and yes it is all getting a bit messy.. J-Bee maybe its time to start filling in your blog... i'm sure that people would be interested in your comments... and Elms noticed you got Harlow to drop his undies .... and appears you like what you see... me i aint so sure this harlow character is all that .... these boisrarse posts just get my goat... always full of hype... full of wonderous stories... and again unsubstanciated... as appears to be the case with the harlow camp ... and the new harlow blog is up .... well the front page .. and a REAL personal comment from Harlow himself "hello all & welcome to my blog!" wow you mean those thoughts and words came directly from harlow .... geee can't wait to read his blog... he leads such a busy life ... and good to see a senator decided to help out... lets hope he don't mind a bit of publicity...
    Mr Elms i'm surprised at your lust for the harlow camp ... is there something we don't know about this association... just that it appears all this harlow talk is really just a diversion from the truth... and if thats the case then all this is really just throwing a spanner in the works .... why have Julien and Cad gone so quiet in this case ...
    anyway enuff ranting from me .... have a good day ....

    ps: my thoughts are with all the people affected by the shootings in the US

  121. Hey Rob, your condolences are truly appreciated. Such kind sentiments are rare these days. And now to answer your question. Am I giving special attention to the Harlow camp? I don’t think I am giving them any more than I gave the Sean camp or the Cobra camp. I just want the truth is all. I am a true fighter for the underdog. And I feel that Harlow and Company has been given a tough row to hoe. It appears that I have a few people who don’t feel the same way as I do but this is America we are allowed or different opinions.
    When this all started I believed that Harlow was involved and I rethought it and I truly feel that they are not now. I do understand that there are some of different opinions and that is fine. I do agree that their self promotion can be annoying but this is America and I again stress that we also have freedom of speech. So if Mark from Boybatter wants to post on my blog about his employers Harlow and Joe and sing their praises he is more than welcome to just as you are welcome to come by and denounce them. I do not censer my posts and I allow all to contribute. I consider this an open forum as long as you agree with me 100%. Now you know I’m just kidding about the 100% -75% is sufficient. Oh yeah about the new Harlow picture I made a comment about Harlow and they sent the new picture so I posted it. Love you all and keep coming by I will have a new post up soon.

  123. Elm, even when I offer something supporting your theory, you read it backwards. Probably I don’t communicate well enough. I said if Harlow were guilty he’d not have used that Drake photo, or at least that there were better options. But that’s the photo used, so what’s the obvious conclusion? Why do you take it to mean the opposite?

    I’ve posted numerous things that probably never happened and I don’t believe happened, but I’ll stop. I was only trying to show how many explanations are possible based on the limited information we have. More than once you took them as my assertions of what happened, when they weren’t.

    It’s easy to assume things as known that aren’t, and then wander off in conjecture. For instance, it’s pointless to draw conclusions about the number of Drake photos on Bryan’s PC when we have no idea if there was one or a dozen. There are many instances like this. We don’t know nearly enough detail about any of it.

    Rob is right -- if I want to discuss this in detail I should do it on my blog, which isn’t yet active, instead of here. Ab, thanks for your comment. Elm, thanks for indulging my over-long postings on your page. I think your theory of a haphazard framing of Harlow after the crime does not fit what little we know, for many reasons. If he was framed, it was more likely planned before the killing.

    Elm> As to paragraph 1 I’m sorry it was very late when I was posting my response and I guess I was a little punchy. I reread it today and I can understand what your doing know. Are you new to this story? We have been going over this for almost 4 months and I think I was just getting tiered of going over the same stuff again.

    Elm >Additional apology: This has been a long process and we have all been through what you’ve been through at any given point during this long investigation. And we have all proposed different theories and have been battered by other posters. I started this blog to try to stop that and now I am guilty of it my self. Some of yours ideas were quite good and you have been helpful as well. if you look at the times that I made my responses then you might understand my mindset. I tend to get a little pissy when I’m tiered. So I much appreciate you posting earlier.

    Elm>That really isn’t necessary you can post here to your hearts content and you can even e-mail me if you want to.
    I would agree with that but not more than ten days like I posted last night. That would have been the crucial point that would cause problems with the killer. So we can explore that theory. I was basing mine on the nature of the killing. But you have plenty of valid points. So lets talk about it but can we keep the post down to 200 words or less. And I will do the same.

    Thank you Kris for the kind words. Yes I do get laid on a regular basis to be exact. You seem to be a little bitter but that is ok I will look past that.
    As far as me fantasizing about young porn stars, that is quite intersting because you are reading my blog so you must be interested in their lives as well. Thank you for reading my blog.
