Information Wanted: Good, Bad, or Ugly


I’m eager to get in touch with anybody who has information on any of the following people, places or institutions. Note that inclusion on the list doesn’t mean that they have done anything wrong; some of the people listed may be potential victims or witnesses. Note also that some of these names may be very common so do not impute anything adverse just because somebody’s name might be in the list because of its commonality. If you know anything or know anybody who might know anything about these folks, bad, good, or otherwise, please e-mail me at:

If you want confidentiality to apply under the California journalists shield law please specify in your message that the information you provide is not for attribution.

Philip I. Markowitz, quote from a transcript in Clark Co District Court Case P-074745:

Okay. This is a case where Phil Markowitz, using a pattern that he’s used in other cases, has a will prepared, has it executed by a known felon, two witnesses who, by the way, Judge, Leroy Black didn’t know these people. Why he would — why he would choose Well, I was cleaning out mom and dad’s house and I found this will and I didn’t know what it was and I submitted it to the Court, and it turns out later it was a fraud.

Saul Lee Markowitz, In Case ES017172 Saul sought a restraining order against a neighbor.  The order was denied after trial and  attorney fees assessed against him following testimony from at least 3 neighboring households.  One of the declarants against Saul wrote in part:

It was at this point that Saul told me that my workers never parked in his driveway at any point, they simply pulled their car in to his driveway and pulled right back out while making a three-point turn.

I was definitely at a loss and said I wasn’t sure why this was a problem but that I would talk to my contractor later that night. Later on, Saul called me back again and said that he witnessed someone once again using his driveway to make a three-point turn. It was at this point that he became very irrational in my opinion and threatened that he was going to call the police on both my contractor and me.

When I asked him on what grounds he replied that we were trespassing on private property. He went on and on with a somewhat incoherent exchange about how tire tread ruins sidewalks and how he could ‘feel’ the cars encroach into his space.

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
