The Assassination of Two Gilchrist County Sheriff Deputies 4

While it’s important to celebrate the lives of heroic law enforcement officers, it’s equally important to learn from the circumstances surrounding the assassination of two Gilchrist County sheriff deputies on April 19, 2018.

Overview:  At about 3PM on Thursday, April 19th, a lone gunman reportedly entered the Ace China restaurant in Trenton, Florida and deliberately killed two Gilchrist County Sheriff Deputies with a firearm. The shooter was reported to be found deceased inside his vehicle located outside the restaurant after apparently taking his own life by self-inflicted gunshot. No description or caliber of the firearm has been made available.

The deceased deputies are reported as:  Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey

The shooter was identified as John Hubert Highnote, 59 of Bell, Florida.   Site address listed by County tax collector as 359 NW 45, Bell, Fl.  No motive for the assassinations has been reported.

An overlooked principal in the shooting is Ace China restaurant owner, Juan Rong Lin as listed by the Florida Dept. of State It’s interesting that not one media or law enforcement source has been curious enough to interview Mr. Lin or his staff as to what happened inside the restaurant including a timeline of events that preceded the shooting.

Update 5/10/18: SAR Report Filed with FDLE  [Screen-shot]

Update 5/4/18: ACE CHINA reopened on 5/3/18. This was confirmed by phone call to the restaurant on 5/4/18 at 5:10 P.M. (352-658-8017). The lady who answered the phone confirmed the hours of operation and menu are the same. However a check with the Florida Dept of State reveals the no change in status. The restaurant remains listed as inactive with a dissolution date of 9/23/2016. (Source)

District Attorney, Bill Cervone attends the news conference where Sheriff Schultz claims Gilchrist County Fire Rescue arrived and did their job.  But Schultz failed to explain why Fire Rescue was told to stand-down on assessing the duputies and transporting them to nearest trauma center for official disposition. Instead the bodies of the two deputies remained inside the restaurant for ten hours to be transported to Gainesville at 1 AM the next morning.  Considering the scene was a public restaurant a hazmat team would be expected on-scene to neutralize contamination from splattered blood and tissue.


News Helicopter captures shooter’s vehicle but no sign of fire-rescue who would normally be swarming the car in order to provide life-saving emergency medical procedures. Instead it was decided to place a tarp over the driver’s door and window.


WFLA is on scene at about 1AM on April 20th while the bodies of the deputies are finally removed from the restaurant, draped in American flags for transport to Gainesville. It remains unclear why Fire-Rescue was told, or decided to stand down on transfer of the deputies to the nearest trauma center for resuscitation and final disposition.

WFLA claims the holes in the glass were “bullet holes” resulting from shots fired from inside the restaurant, however the description and caliber of the firearm remains unreported.


Mystery Witness Provides Narrative

WFLA interviewed an anonymous witness who claimed to be working across the highway.  After hearing shots fired he claimed a man rapidly exited the restaurant to drive away in a red truck. This was followed by the identified shooter (John Highnote) calmly exiting the restaurant with a visible firearm.  He then claimed to have witnessed a woman enter the restaurant and pause after looking inside.  He claims he also entered the restaurant and witnessed the deputies with  head trauma.  Finally, he claims that sheriff deputies arrived in about three minutes after his boss called 911. This witness made no mention of seeing arrival of fire-rescue or that restaurant employee staff were present.

Why Was The Most Important Witness Never Interviewed?

Why would multiple media outlets show up to cover a restaurant shooting without interviewing the service staff who were inside before and after the shooting?

As the most likely witnesses to events that led up to the shooting, it’s bizarre that every media outlet failed to interview the staff in order to report what really happened.  It’s bizarre that in multiple press conferences, Sheriff Schultz failed to acknowledge the existence of restaurant employees as witnesses. It’s as if the Ace China staff were intentionally written out of a Hollywood movie.


News report shows a brief few frames of a fire-rescue vehicle but the Gainesville Sun reports the deceased deputies remained inside the restaurant until 1 AM the next morning.  How can this inexplicable delay be justified as normal emergency medical protocol considering the expert capability of fire rescue and their fully equipped transport vehicles ?

“The men’s bodies were moved from the restaurant about 1 a.m. Friday, Tummond said.”



The Florida Dept of State records lists the status of the Ace China restaurant as “inactive” with the last annual report filed in 2015 with a dissolution date of 9/23/2016. Furthermore, the mailing address for the Trenton, Florida restaurant is traced to an out-of-state Bank:  East West Bank branch located in Atlanta Georgia.  (3490 Shallowford Road Northeast Suite 100 Atlanta, GA, 30341).

Deputies Taylor Lindsey and Noel Ramirez

An URL search performed on 4/26/2018 reveals the “contact-Us” page at the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) website was captured by the “Wayback Machine” a total of 9 times beginning 9/5/2015.

A Search for deputies Taylor Lindsey and Noel Ramirez lists deputy Taylor Lindsey assigned to patrol from 9/5/2015 through 7/22/2016, however “Taylor Lindsey” does not appear beginning 4/12/2017 and subsequent page captures.

In the case of Sergeant Noel Ramirez, his name fails to appear on any current or archived page capture.

This information suggests deputy Taylor Lindsey ceased employment at the GCSO sometime after 7/22/2016 and Sergeant Noel Ramirez was either never employed or ceased employment sometime before 9/5/2015. URL Search [ ]

SUN 4/27/18: Gilchrist shooter remains a mystery
Why does a description of the shooter’s firearms remain a mystery?
“Highnote left his home in Bell April 19 with two rifles, a handgun and ample ammunition, Schultz said.”

Sheriff Schultz makes a curious comment that implies the shooter departed the Ace China restaurant and then returned:
“Schultz said after killing Ramirez and Lindsey, Highnote returned to Trenton’s Ace China restaurant, got into his vehicle and shot himself.”    Archive)

  2. I believe that fake shootings and events like this are needed by law enforcement as the average citizen is waking up to the fact that the leos are only protecting the lawyers and judges that enslave the public.
    the real crime that is happening is being commited by the most dangerous reptile of all ,” THE LITIGATOR”.

    • Great observation. I consider the officers were assassinated for what they knew as potential whistleblowers although I’m still looking for a coverup in ID’s. Remember we saw mysterious deaths of 2 officers in the Parkland event.
