Fred Malone transcripts evidence

Fred Malone of FBC Clinton, La. participated over the phone in the 2000 ARBCA investigation into the savage abuse of children by Tom Chantry. His contact was Don Linblad of ARBCA, both guilty of covering up Chantry’s heinous crimes.

On July 28th 2017 Anthony Battaglia privately questioned and then confronted Fred Malone on the phone about Fred’s participation in the ARBCA investigation into the heinous abuse of children by Tom Chantry. Fred Malone clearly stated that he knew of the original allegations of child abuse and did not call the police as mandatorily required by law. Anthony asked Fred to repent during this initial phone conversation on July 28th 2017.

The following are transcripts of the voice mail Fred Malone left for Anthony Battaglia on July 28th 2017 and the subsequent phone call between them concerning Tom Chantry’s egregious crimes.

The accuracy of phone call transcript and Battaglia’s memory has been called into question by Fred Malone, Tom Hicks and Mitch Axsom from FBC Clinton.

Full audio evidence of a meeting between Battaglia and Axsom shows not only Battaglia’s memory to be accurate, but the agreement of Mitch Axsom that Battaglia had no malicious intent toward Malone. Further, the audio goes on to establish Fred Malone’s critical, dishonest and unrepentant nature confirmed by Axsom and Battaglia together.

Full audio file available here.

Later in an “off the books” congregational church meeting on October 15th, 2017 Tom Hicks (named pastor of FBC Clinton) attempted to cast doubt on Battaglia’s testimony by lying about the phone call between Battaglia and Malone saying,

Fred called this member on a cell phone. The member began to have questions about what Fred knew. The phone was disconnected at one point, necessitating a call back. Fred tried to answer this man’s questions to the best of his ability but the cell phone was cutting in and out and it was hard for Fred to hear what this man was asking. There is no audio recording of this phone call.” – Tom Hicks

Phone record evidence here shows Hicks blatant lie to the FBC Clinton congregation about the following phone conversation between Malone and Battaglia.
