Billy Ray Waldon
Billy Ray Waldon (born 1952), aka Billy Joe Waldon and Nvwtohiyada Idehesdi Sequoyah, is a convicted rapist and murderer. Born in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, he is on Death Row in California for a crime spree which claimed three lives. On May 16, 1986, he became the 399th fugitive listed by the FBI on the Ten Most Wanted List. He was arrested June 16, 1986, in San Diego, California, after local police attempted to pull him over for a routine traffic citation. His deadly crime spree was featured in the book "Murders in Paradise" by Rose G. Handelberg.
Since 1992, the organization "Friends of Sequoyah, Team Research Switzerland" have been trying to overturn the conviction, claiming that
- Devoid of both motive and forensic evidence, the prosecution case rested on stolen property found in a car belonging to NIS, questionable eye-witness testimony, and a proficiency in outmaneuvering an unskilled and inadequately prepared defense, unable to attach substance to its claims of political subterfuge targeting American Indian activists.
He is also the creator of the constructed language Poliespo (Polisinteza Esperanto)
