 . [continued below]....


Suspect Timothy E. Suckow was arrested on January 14, 2014 for the premeditated murder of Douglas Carlile at his home at 2505 S. Garfield Rd., Spokane, Washington. Suckow's arrest implicates James T. Henriksen in the murder!

In Spring 2012 James Henrikson was banned from the Fort Berthold Reservation for theft and fraud (it is estimated he stole several million dollars from drivers, investors and his business partner, Tribal Chairman Tex Hall.

When James Henrikson needed to hide his identity he partnered with Doug Carlile, John Wark and Bill Curtiss to start Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises, (an oilfield development company owning mineral rights to 640 acres on the MHA Nations Reservation sometime early 2013) and then later Bridgewater Energy (a trucking company started in July 2013). Investors included Rene Johnson, Douglas Helton, James Henrikson and James' wife Sarah Creveling. Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises was owned by Carlile, Wark and Curtiss in order to keep James Henrikson's name off official records. James was to be paid $1.2 million once the oil field started producing.

Helton invested nearly $1 million and was suppose to have his money back within 7 months, but was never paid. He had sever disputes with James Henrikson where Henrikson threatened him. Helton had plans to file a law suit in 2014.

In late August or early September 2013, James Henrikson showed up at Skyler Carlile's office (son of Doug Carlile) and demanded $400,000. James Henrikson told Skyler they were in business with some "very bad people" and if Skyler did not give Henrikson the money "Something bad could happen to me and my family." Skyler told Henrikson to leave by was concerned over the threats.

Mid-September 2013 James Henrikson began using the alias Cole Johnson. James Henrikson had a falling out with tribal chairman Tex Hall when Chairman hall launched an investigation against James Henrikson for defrauding Chairman Hall's company out of millions of dollars. According to sources, in mid-September James Henrikson approached Eric Guerrero and asked him if he knew someone who would kill Tex Hall. In an interview with Detective Burbridge, Guerrero denied that James Henrikson ever asked him to find someone to kill anyone. Guerrero refused to cooperate further.

Bridgewater Energy employee Daniel Sowers worked for James Henrikson and Doug Carlile. He James repeatedly threatened Carlile with violence saying he owed him large amounts of money. Sowers said at some point in late September or early October he was in James Henrikson's house and saw Carlile's complete name written over and over as if someone was practicing signing Carlile's name (James Henrikson had been previously arrested for forging signatures.) Sowers claims James Henrikson owes him $6,000 for work completed but James Henrikson refuses to pay him.

However, Carlile was having difficulty finding an investor to purchase the remaining land and begin drilling. The relationship between James Henrikson and Doug Carlile began to get very bad, with Henrikson continually threatening Carlile. In November 2013, Carlile began talking with oil investor Stan Dedmon in an effort buy out James Henrikson, John Wark, Bill Curtiss and Doug Helton in exchange for 55% of Kingdom Dynamics. This infuriated Henrikson. Carlile told his son Shane Carlile he had an investor to buy James Henrikson out, but James Henrikson was not happy. Shane's brother Seth loaned their dad Doug a gun.

In mid-November 2013 James Henrikson approached business man Larry Tormozov. James Henrikson said they were going to lose their lease on the land if they could not come up with another $400,000. Tormozov and other investor refused to be involved in the project if Carlile was involved as Carlile had a reputation for dishonesty and owed one man $500,000. Tormozov told Henrikson if he could get Carlile out of Kingdom Dynamics, he would speak with the other investor - Pamp Maier. James Henrikson attempted to buy out Doug Carlile but failed. James Henrikson told Tormozov he did not know what else to do.

In early December 2013 Carlile feared for his life and told his sons if something happened to him James Henrikson was responsible. Carlile told son Skyler Carlile "If I disappear or wake up with bullets in my back, promise me you will let everyone know that James Henrikson did it."

On December 15, 2013 the Carliles returned home around 7pm to find an armed intruder in their home. Mrs. Carlile ran upstaris to call the police while the intruder, who was wearing all black, black gloves and a black mask shot Doug Carlile multiple times, killing him.

Officer S. Wheeler responded to a report of shots fired. Upon arrival found Doug Carlile deceased on the kitchen floor. Seven .45 caliber casings were recovered in the kitchen area. A search of the property revealed a fresh shoe print in mud and a dry leather glove. Neighbors saw a white extended van in the area operated by a white, bald man with a muscular build. The van was discovered and positively identified by witnesses.

James Henrikson was contacted at 10:09pm on the night of Dough Carlile's death. Henrikson admitted to the partnership and to being very angry with Carlile for not paying people. James Henrikson denied ever threatening Carlile or killing Carlile and did not know why someone would want to kill Carlile. Henrikson claimed Carlile owned him $1.88 million.

A search warrant was issued on Timothy Suckow's 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe. Detective Barrington discovered a list or "operations plan" in the center console of the vehicle. The list contained the following items: Gloves, badge, trench coat, two boots, LED light cap, radios with mics, window tinker, wheel man (written next to the words wheel man was "show scenic tour Google Earth", check van for scheduling/magnetic signs, wipe tools down, practice with pistol. Detective Barrington also found a black Balaclava (mask) in the vehicle.

Detective Burbridge searched Timothy Suckow's phone incident to a search warrant. Listed in Suckow's phone contacts was the name "James ND." The phone number listed was James Henrikson's phone number.

DNA Scientists for the Washington State Patrol Crime Laboratory recovered DNA evidence from the leather glove left at the crime scene. The DNA is a match for arrested suspect Timothy Suckow.

Sarah Creveling Charged with Fraud, Money Laundering

AUTHOR: - ()

Creveling pleads not guilty to money laundering, mail fraud


By Andrew Sheeler / Bismarck Tribune on Sep 22, 2015 at 12:24 a.m.


BISMARCK -- The ex-wife of a former Watford City man facing federal charges in a murder-for-hire plot pleaded not guilty Monday to mail fraud and three counts of money laundering.

Sarah Marie Creveling was indicted on Sept. 2 and appeared Monday via video conference from Nashville, Tenn., before U.S. District Court for North Dakota Magistrate Judge Charles Miller Jr.

Creveling, who could be sentenced to 10 years in prison for each of the money laundering charges if found guilty, is alleged to have bilked investors out of more than $1.7 million.

Creveling's ex-husband, James Henrikson, waits in a Yakima, Wash., jail for his October trial — on three murder-for-hire related counts and one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin — and faces a possible death penalty if convicted.

He is accused of arranging the murder of his former business partner Douglas Carlile in his Spokane, Wash., home in 2013, as well as the murder of Kristopher Clarke, a Henrikson employee who vanished in 2012.

In Creveling's case, Henrikson is not directly named in court papers but is referred to as Creveling's husband and co-conspirator.

Creveling and her former husband managed Blackstone, a limited liability corporation that promised investors a 12.5 percent monthly return on investment in exchange for providing the funds to purchase trucks and trailers for use in the Bakken region.

The indictment alleges that, over a three-year period beginning in January 2011, Creveling and her husband used the mail system to encourage investors to send them money, with that money then being laundered into other LLCs set up by Creveling and her husband or else spent on personal property.

Creveling allegedly told investors that the company's trucks and trailers were operating at a loss or "were damaged, destroyed or required extensive, and expensive, repairs."

Questionable transactions

Court papers cite business transactions that were red-flagged.

-- Investors were allegedly told that they could sell or "part-out" their trucks or trailers, transferring the titles to Creveling in exchange for a promise to send whatever money was obtained from scrapping them.

-- On one occasion, federal officials allegedly tracked the transfer of $600,000 of investor funds to an account held by Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises, another LLC owned by Creveling and Henrikson.

-- On another occasion, Creveling allegedly withdrew more than $60,000, which was spent on a personal vehicle.

In addition to the criminal charges, several of Creveling's assets have been targeted for forfeiture to the U.S. government, including 320 acres of mineral rights in Dunn County owned by Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises and three vehicles worth a total of $114,250.

11.   Count eleven: Conspiracy to Distribute Heroin. 

WATCH: Conviction brings relief for neighborhood 

The former North Dakota businessman was charged and convicted of being the mastermind in the shooting death of a Spokane Doug Carlile and former co-worker KC Clarke. 

Henrikson was found guilty of hiring Timothy Suckow and Robert Delao to carry out the murders. 

Henrikson stood showing no emotion while the verdict was read on Thursday.

The Carlile family was in the courtroom when the verdict was reached. Carlile's wife broke out in tears as it was read. They said they are thankful Henrikson was found guilty. They explained they have been waiting a long time for justice and are relieved the wake of destruction Henrikson created can never happen again. 

The Carlile family said they are so thankful for the attorneys and detectives. They believe they did an awesome job and that they were caring, unified, and presented a strong case. 
The prosecuting attorneys were not able to comment on the case on Thursday. 

The trial, which has spanned 21-plus days over a five week period began deliberations on Wednesday. Jurors spent most of the day deliberating before ending for the day. Henrikson's defense attorney who was in the courtroom said he did not want to make a comment and his other attorney was in Seattle and was unavailable.

Both Suckow and Delao pleaded guilty to murder-for-hire in September 2015. They both testified during the trial. Henrikson's ex-wife also testified during the trial. 

On February 15, the attorneys for Henrikson filed a motion for mistrial citing disclosure of evidence. The judge rules ruled there was no mistrial. 

Later on in the trial, defense attorney Todd Maybrown filed a motion asking for five of Henrikson's charges to be thrown out because the defense does not believe the prosecution presented enough evidence for a conviction. 

A total of 17 jurors heard the case, but only 12 decided Henrikson's fate.

Judge Mendoza thanked the jury on Thursday for their service during Henrikson's five-week trial.

James Henrikson ARRESTED

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

James Henrikson arrested on federal firearms charges



James Henrikson was arrested on federal firearms charges Saturday by agents from Homeland Security Investigations and the Bismarck/Mandan Metro Area Narcotics Task Force.

Henrikson is being charged with illegal possession of firearms by a convicted felon. He is also a person of interest in the December murder of Douglas Carlile.

Henrikson was a business associate of Carlile, who was murdered last month in his South Hill home.

Detectives discovered Carlile, one of four owners in Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises, was trying to buy Henrikson out of his share of 640 acres of North Dakota land they owned mineral rights with plans to drill for oil.

Those attempts to buy Henrikson out were rebuffed, while Henrikson, according to court documents, allegedly attempted to buy Carlile out in order to attract an investor who refused to put money into Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises as long as Carlile was involved.

The tensions between the two were so high, a witness told detectives someone has been practicing writing Carlile's signature inside Henrikson's home and confirmed he overheard Henrikson threatening to kill Carlile and his family.

Henrikson, however, told detectives he never threatened his business partner and is not responsible for his murder.

Timothy Suckow was arrested earlier this week for the murder of Carlile. Detectives believe Henrickson or another business associate of Carlile may have hired Suckow to carry out the murder. 

Suckow left a trail of evidence leading police to his Spokane Valley home. A van seen leaving the scene of Carlile's home directly after the murder was found at Suckow's place of work and, detectives say, a glove found in the back yard of Carlile's home has DNA evidence matching Suckow.
