BIKERS FOUND GUILTY 3 CONVICTED OF MURDER AND ARSON
MADISON, WIS. — The national president of the Ghost Riders motorcycle club and two other club members have been convicted of first degree murder, arson and insurance fraud in a fatal tavern fire near here in 1983.
Convicted Wednesday were Alvin Hegge, 45, president of the club, based in Washington state; Scott Howard, 30; and Will Highfill, 41. Howard and Highfill also were convicted of endangering safety.
A Dane County Circuit Court jury deliberated for nine hours before delivering the verdict.
The men were sentenced to life imprisonment on the murder charge. They will be sentenced on the other charges later.
Catherine Christian, 22, died in the March, 1983, fire at Rosa`s Cantina, five miles southeast of Madison. Prosecutors contend the men planned to set the fire at the financially troubled tavern to collect insurance money and kill Christian, who the prosecutors say the three men believed to be a police informant.
Defense attorneys contend the fire was accidental, caused by faulty wiring.
Rosa`s Cantina became a hangout for the Ghost Riders when they tried to establish a chapter in Madison during 1982 and 1983, but those plans were abandoned shortly after the fire, according to court records.
Dane County Assistant District Atty. Robert DeChambeau, one of three prosecutors, said the verdict will significantly hurt the club.
''The Ghost Riders are pretty much through,'' he said.
Hegge`s lawyer, Ralph Kalal, criticized the prosecutors for using convicted criminals to testify against Hegge. Kalal said the prosecution`s case was built ''on a foundation of shifting sand. Yet the prosecution makes Mr. Hegge out to be the kingpin who ran the entire operation. It doesn`t make sense.''
Two other members of the bikers group were convicted last spring on lesser charges in the case.
Washington state officials say they have waited for the trial here to end and will now extradite Hegge and Howard to face federal and state charges in Spokane.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Hegge in connection with the shooting death of a Spokane police officer in 1983, according to the Spokane County Prosecutor`s Office. Officer Brian Orchard was killed during a police stakeout of Ghost Riders suspected of selling stolen weapons. Two club associates have been convicted of the murder.
Hegge also has been indicted in Spokane on a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to deliver cocaine, according to the U.S. attorney`s office in Spokane.
Howard also was indicted on federal charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to deliver cocaine, unlawful transport of fire arms and use of a fire arm in a felony, according to the U.S. attorney`s office in Spokane. Both men will stand trial Dec. 9 on the federal charges.
Law enforcement officials who track the Ghost Riders in Washington state say the club has been one of the fastest growing groups in the country, but will be hurt by Hegge`s conviction.
Brent Pfundheller, a detective with the Washington State Patrol in Olympia, said Hegge was a strong group leader. ''He was definitely in control of the Ghost Riders,'' he said. ''If he said to do something, it was done. You didn`t cross Al Hegge.''
The Ghost Riders are considered to be very dangerous and are monitored closely by law officials, said Larry Boyd, chief sheriff`s deputy in Grant County, Wash., where the group was formed in the mid-1960s.
With chapters in Washington state, Billings, Mont., British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, police estimate the group has between 75 and 150 members.

Leader of “Ghost Riders” Motorcycle Gang Sentenced to Prison for Illegal Weapons Possession
A leader of the Ghost Riders motorcycle gang in Pierce County was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Tacoma to five years in prison for possession of an unregistered short-barreled shotgun and being a felon in possession of explosives, announced U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. The 66-year-old male suspect, of Spanaway, Washington, has been in custody since his property was searched on June 13, 2013 and the weapons were discovered. The explosives were being stored for a retaliatory attack on a rival gang. U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton imposed the sentence.
“The possession of illegal firearms and explosives by violent felons endangers a whole community,” said U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. “This defendant and his gang planned a violent attack on rivals that could have caused serious injuries or deaths. Innocent bystanders could have been caught up in the carnage. The very act of storing those explosives illegally in the storage locker posed risks to the community should they be stolen or ignite accidently.”
According to the plea agreement signed in September 2013, ATF agents searched a Spanaway storage locker belonging to the suspect and found more than two sticks of Emulsion explosives and four blasting caps. They also recovered six firearms, including three rifles, two shotguns, and a handgun, as well as additional ammunition. Two days later they searched the suspect’s home and a shed on the property that was used as the Ghost Rider’s clubhouse. They seized ammunition and six more firearms, including four handguns, a rifle, and a 12-gauge short-barreled shotgun with no serial number.
The suspect was convicted of second degree murder in Grant County, Washington in 1994 and is therefore prohibited from possessing firearms and explosives.
In asking for a five year sentence, prosecutors noted that the Ghost Riders motorcycle gang was preparing for a violent attack.
“The government believes that the gel explosives and at least some of the firearms were gathered for the purpose of a planned violent attack on ‘Uncle Sam’s Bar and Grill’ in Spanaway, known to be a favored hangout of a rival motorcycle gang, the Bandidos. This attack was to be in retaliation for the suspect and about eight of his “brother” Ghost Riders having been tricked and assaulted at that very location on June 2, 2012 (almost exactly a year earlier),” prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), with assistance from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad, the Washington State Patrol SWAT Team, the South Sound Gang Task Force, and the Seattle Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Gregory A. Gruber.

Just how many Ghost Riders are there in the Marvel Universe?
They are the Spirits of Vengeance. Fiery, angelic beings. “Heaven’s Black Ops.” They were, as told in a flashback from GHOST RIDER (2006) #33 , born out of a supreme being’s will to keep depravity and wickedness in check. They weren’t native to America but spanned countless countries, cultures, and eras. And, one Ghost Rider is bad enough, but to face a whole army of them? GHOST RIDER: HEAVEN’S ON FIRE (2009) #6 and DOCTOR STRANGE: DAMNATION (2018) #4 showed that it was a fate worse than death.
It was once believed that Hell-lord Mephisto was the creator of the Ghost Riders. Sell your soul, become a cursed, flaming skull with immense power. But it’s a little more complicated than that. According to GHOST RIDER (2006) #18 , the rogue archangel Zadkiel bonded the Sprits of Vengeance to the chosen, as he was in charge of maintaining them. This spirit, an “entity of heaven,” would be connected to a targeted human host, like stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze , whose purpose was to purify sins through fighting. Whereas the Spirits of Vengeance that served Mephisto directly were demonic entities, as portrayed in DOCTOR STRANGE: DAMNATION (2018) #1 .
Regardless of their origin, one thing is for certain. The legacy of the Ghost Rider is filled with “pain, punishment, and vengeance.” So, hop on your preferred Hell-Vehicle of choice, and let’s take a fiendish ride down this hair-raising highway of history.
In AVENGERS (2018) #7 , an intelligent caveman from 1,000,000 B.C. was the lone survivor of a Wendigo attack. The monster named the caveman “Ghost” and challenged him to find them. It was during this journey that Ghost was approached by a snake and was given a Spirit of Vengeance, thus making him the 1,000,000 B. C. Ghost Rider . Although he loses the battle and his Hell Mammoth to the Wendigo, B.C. Ghost Rider would later join the Stone Age Avengers, such as 1,000,000 B. C. Black Panther, to battle the Fallen in MARVEL LEGACY (2017) #1 and the First Host in the pages of AVENGERS (2018) .
The following Ghost Rider was Hellhawk , a Sioux chieftain during the 11th century. First appearing in GHOST RIDER (2006) #33, he was part of the 1,000 A. D. Avengers, and, according to some dialogue in AVENGERS (2018) #24 , had a rivalry with the Puritan Avenger/Ghost Rider Noble Kale . (Kale is also the ancestor of two other Ghost Riders, Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch ). Hellhawk was killed by Necrosis, on orders by Belasco of the Corrupted as a threat to Mephisto to keep all Spirits of Vengeance out of Limbo. The message was definitely received.
The next prominent Ghost Rider was Kushala , AKA the Spirit Rider. An Apache woman from the 19th century, her parents and her tribe were killed by the United States Army. She prayed for help from the Creator but instead received an answer from Leviathan, a Spirit of Vengeance. During that time, she was known as the Demon Rider and was even the Sorcerer Supreme. She would be transported to the modern era with other Sorcerers Supreme to fight the Forgotten in DOCTOR STRANGE AND THE SORCERERS SUPREME (2016) and starred in her own vertical series on the Marvel Unlimited app, GHOST RIDER: KUSHALA INFINITY COMIC (2021) .
[ RELATED : The History of Kushala: Who Is the Spirit Rider? ]
Debuting in MARVEL SPOTLIGHT (1971) #5 , Johnny Blaze was the first Ghost Rider in Marvel Comics history and the second character to use the name; Carter Slade, the Phantom Rider , has the honor of using the name first. Blaze was a motorcycle stuntman who bonded with the Spirit of Vengeance named Zarathos to save his surrogate father from death. Of course, Mephisto couldn’t just stand by when such a deal was forged. Since this pivotal life choice, Blaze has been on tons of teams including the Legion of Monsters and most notably the Midnight Sons . Oh, and he was also the King of Hell for a few years . Talk about a promotion!
Blaze hasn’t always been the Ghost Rider in the present era. He actually gave up his powers in 1983, and it wouldn’t be until GHOST RIDER (1990) #1 when a new person stepped in to fill the Ghost Rider vacuum. Danny Ketch is Blaze’s long-lost, younger brother, and unlike his predecessor, would get along well with his Spirit, the Marvel Universe’s iteration of the Angel of Death. It was assumed Ketch died at the end of his series, until he was seen alive and well. In addition to being a Ghost Rider, Ketch was the host of Noble Kale, a knight of Zadkiel, and the Death Rider. Adding to his ever-growing resume, Ketch was also one-fourth of the NEW FANTASTIC FOUR , along with Gray Hulk Joe Fixit , Spider-Man , and Wolverine .
After the FEAR ITSELF event, a Central American woman named Alejandra Jones was introduced as the new Ghost Rider. One difference between her and her fellow Ghost Riders was that she trained for the role; when the time came, her mentor, Adam, performed the ritual to transform Jones into the formidable being. She would later be trained by Blaze, but after some wild occurrences, he would take most of his powers back from her. Furious, Jones used her remaining powers to protect her village as the Guardian Fantasma, but it would be short-lived as maniacal symbiote Carnage killed her in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE: SYMBIOTE OF VENGEANCE (2019) #1 .
One of the latest Ghost Riders is Robbie Reyes , introduced in ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER (2014) #1 . A young man from East Los Angeles, Reyes was a high school student and auto body mechanic. He wanted to move him and his younger brother Gabe into a safer neighborhood, but didn’t have the money, so Reyes entered a street race to win $50,000. All did not go to plan. Reyes was shot—and then revived—by the spirit of Eli Morrow (his estranged uncle who was also a satanic serial killer). While fending off his uncle’s urges to kill indiscriminately, Ghost Rider: Reyes became an Avenger and would eventually be freed of Eli’s influence in AVENGERS (2018) #25 .
The next character to become a Ghost Rider is a bit of a detour, as he didn’t become one in the “traditional” sense. During Mephisto’s takeover of Las Vegas, Doctor Strange —yes, that Doctor Strange —was a Ghost Rider in DOCTOR STRANGE: DAMNATION (2018) #2 . How did it happen? Strange’s consciousness was tricked by letting him believe that “Loki,” “Scarlet Witch, and “Clea” helped him escape from his cell, when in reality, he was attacking his rescuers while his soul was in Hell. Fortunately, with help from some Avengers, Bats the Bassett Hound, and even Dormammu , Strange was able to escape Hell and return to his “normal” state in DOCTOR STRANGE (2015) #389 .
Kenshiro "Zero" Cochrane was an anarchist hacker in a gang called the Hotwire Martyrs in the year 2099. Shot by a rival gang and on the brink of death, he transferred his consciousness to cyberspace, where he was discovered by an AI collective named Ghostworks. When asked to become their avatar of change, Cochrane obviously said yes and was downloaded into a Cybertek 101 warbot. He made it his mission to avenge his and his fallen friends’ deaths, but the rest of his story would remain unwritten. He would, however, reappear in GHOST RIDER 2099 (2019) #1 and SPIDER-MAN 2099: EXODUS ALPHA (2022) , the latter of which celebrated the 30th anniversary of the 2099 universe. Maybe his story isn’t done after all…
What happens when you combine the Punisher , Ghost Rider, and awesome cosmic might? You get Frank Castle as the Cosmic Ghost Rider ! This version of Castle was from an alternate universe in which Thanos conquered everything . After making a deal with Mephisto to become the Ghost Rider (and receiving an upgrade from the Power Cosmic), Castle would end up as a servant of Thanos after spending centuries trying to kill him. In COSMIC GHOST RIDER (2018) , Castle traveled through time and attempted to raise baby Thanos to be a better person, but unfortunately this plan had the exact opposite effect. Post- INFINITY WARS (2018) , he spent time with the Guardians of the Galaxy for a bit, destroyed Marvel history in a series of the same name , and was last seen seeking revenge on Mephisto in REVENGE OF THE COSMIC GHOST RIDER (2019) #5 .
In short, Marvel history has always had its Ghost Riders. Just make sure you’re not on the wrong side of them. Especially if your name is Mephisto .

Biker in fatal crash had killed two.
Fraser, 51, captured years after 1982 tavern shooting
The biker killed in a crash Wednesday had been a member of the Ghost Riders motorcycle gang and served time in prison for killing two people.
Michael W. Fraser, 51, died when his bike slid more than 200 feet into an oncoming car on North Market Street, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.
Fraser was southbound on Market when he tried to pass another vehicle in a no-pass zone just south of Hawthorne Road about 5:15 p.m., according to a news release.
He lost control of his rebuilt 1985 motorcycle and tipped over, hitting a 1994 Mercury Sable driven by a Mead man who had braked “to almost a complete stop,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
“The motorcycle went under the front of the Sable, trapping its rider beneath the car and killing him almost instantly,” according to the news release. The Sable’s driver was not injured.
Deputies said Fraser was traveling about 70 mph in the 45 mph zone.
Fraser, whose nickname among fellow bikers was Herpes, spent several years on the lam after the 1982 shooting death of Ben S. Lawson, 32, at the old Red Robin tavern on North Monroe Street, according to news archives. He was captured in 1989 and spent a year in prison on a second-degree manslaughter conviction before being paroled, according to the state Corrections Department.
News articles say he also was named as one of 11 defendants in a 1983 arson murder of a Wisconsin woman, for which Ghost Rider leader Al Hegge and three others were convicted in 1985. Hegge is serving life in prison for murdering a Spokane police officer in 1983.
Fraser returned to prison in 1992 after a customer was shot twice in the back and killed during a barroom brawl in Arlington, Wash., that involved several other members of the Ghost Riders, according to a 1996 Seattle Times article.
Fraser was then convicted of second-degree murder and released in 2005, state records show. He wasn’t on probation when he died.
Sgt. Dave Reagan said Fraser was still affiliated with an outlaw motorcycle gang but declined to say which one.
More health care happening outside the doctor’s office
Technology is redefining health care and it’s not only cutting-edge surgical treatments and advances in important routine screenings like mammograms.
