You may remember several months back when Liberty Dispatch broke the national story of singer Neil Diamond who was accused of not giving money he raised in the name of Ike Relief, to the Ike Relief Fund. It is further alleged that Mr. Diamond used the unsolicited public relations interest in Oak Island/Ike relief to create a place for himself as "Music Entertainer of the Year".
Now, sources close to Liberty Dispatch claim that no money allegedly raised by Mr. Diamond can be found. The claimed amount of money raised by Mr. Diamond through the sale of concert paraphernalia is said to be around two million dollars.
When Liberty Dispatch first broke the story, threats were made to Mr. Akins who was then investigating the story. Its is further alleged that Mr. Diamond's people contacted Liberty County DA, Mike Little in an attempt to quiet Mr. Akins through pressure of an indictment and loss of his Investigations License.
