Biker gangs leave trail of mayhem while claiming South Florida, authorities say

Hoodlum biker gangs leaving trails of exhaust, murder and mayhem in their wake are not a thing of yesteryear, as demonstrated by a recent killing pinned on the notorious Outlaws Motorcycle Club near Orlando.

The Outlaws, whose motto is “God forgives, Outlaws don’t,” have been actively challenging motorcycle clubs throughout the state, an investigation into the April 29 slaying of a Kingsmen motorcyclist in Leesburg has revealed.

The Outlaws have “decreed that any clubs that did not choose to submit to their authority would need to disband, close their clubhouses and cease to wear their respective insignia,” court documents show.

Tip helped lead to arrest of suspect in Neenah robbery and fatal shooting at local saloon

OSHKOSH — A tip from the public and a discarded cigarette helped lead police to the man arrested last week in connection with the death of Kevin "Hollywood" Hein, who was shot and killed Oct. 14 outside the Short Branch Saloon in Neenah. 

Casey Cameron, 36, of Menasha, was arrested Friday, a few weeks after investigators got a tip that he had "a lot of characteristics of the suspect," including scratches near his right eye and a roommate with a vehicle that matched a description police released to the public, according to a criminal complaint. 

The tipster also claimed Cameron was a member of the "Hell's Lover Motorcycle Club" and went by the nickname "Amish," the complaint says. 

On Nov. 1, a police officer spotted Cameron driving and smoking a cigarette in the same vehicle. When Cameron tossed a cigarette near the intersection of Main Street and Tayco Street in Menasha, the officer picked it up.

Pagans Motorcycle Club honors member 13 years after death with short ceremony

The sound of engines revving briefly filled Wilmington's Hilltop neighborhood Saturday afternoon when members of the Pagan Motorcycle Club gathered to remember a man who was shot and killed by a Wilmington police officer 13 years ago.

About 30 members gathered near the steps of a home in the 1400 block of W. Sixth St., where Derek J. Hale was shot to death by Lt. William Browne during an investigation of the motorcycle club. Browne was cleared of any wrongdoing by the state's Attorney General's Office in 2007.

The group's motorcycles filled the block, arranged in two long lines between parked cars as the club's leader, Paul Fitzwater, shared a few words with the motorcyclists and residents looking on from their porches.

After less than 10 minutes, their engines roared and the group left.
