Some alarming comments were revealed in a recording made by Principal Killough and Assistant Principal Mike Murphy at OBHS! Before Coach Samsel had been relieved of his Athletic Director position and Head Coach position, Murphy and Killough had a meeting with Samsel. Killough and Murphy recorded the meeting, but they did NOT tell Coach Samsel about the meeting being recorded. They were discussing some of the perceived issues happening at the school. The actual transcription of this recording is 60+ pages long. What I found most alarming were Killough and Murphy’s comments once Samsel left the room. They were obviously unaware that the recorder was still recording their conversation, and if they had known, I doubt this would have been made evidence in this case. Read the following two pages!
If Killough was being honest and true with Samsel, why would Murphy say that she earned an Oscar for that performance?! You can see Killough and Murphy’s true feelings and intentions in these pages, because they thought the recorder was off at this point. Guess they should have listened to the entire recording before handing it over to the attorneys.
Next, Killough claimed that Gaspard quit OBHS because of the negativity aimed at her by Samsel and possibly others. Read below to see what Gaspard had to say in his deposition about this and about Coach Toungett.
Looks like Coach Samsel isn’t the only one that felt Coach Toungett was spreading false rumors and information. Also, it would appear that Killough was again being dishonest in her deposition.
Lastly, I am sharing Kuykendall’s own words about the situation concerning Kyle Brigance. Milton claimed that everything that happened was due to the state auditor, Stacey Pickering, more or less. Although, Stacey Pickering (by Milton’s own admission) never instigated the situation. MILTON DID!!! Read his statements first, and I will follow those up with the truth even by his own jumbled up version of events!
By Milton’s own words, State Auditor Stacey Pickering did not initiate any investigation into Kyle Brigance. The county office did. It was the county office that hired (AGAIN) outside legal counsel! Why?! Why was this necessary?! By Milton’s own words, State Auditor Stacey Pickering stated that Kyle should not be fired or made to pay the money back, so why does Milton keep acting like Kyle’s savior? If Pickering did not see any need to fire him or have him pay any money back, why would Milton say that he talked Pickering out of prosecuting Kyle?! And since when does the state auditor make personnel or management decisions for any school district?! The answer should be NEVER! Could the truth be this…… Milton asked Pickering if it was OK if he moved Kyle and cut his pay since they (Pickering and Jim Keith) found nothing criminally wrong or deserving of punishment, hampering Milton’s plan to get Kyle out of OBHS?!!
