  1. my name is chad baldwin…i searved time with addam and his brother in law timothy at FCI PHEONIX ARIZONA….as a friend i think they should be freed!..

  2. Chad,

    I am sure you already know that Timothy Singer is out of prison.

    Why do you think that Addam should be released? Is he innocent? Please remember, I am in Utah and I remember this incident very well. I also was friends with Vickie Singer for a while.

  3. i never did talk with addam about his part in what happened in utah…it was not my place to ask him if he is innocent or not…i will not comment on anything that addam said to me in prison…if i was in need of somebody to watch my back for something in life i could not find a better person than addam….i wish him well!..

  4. Chad,

    If you did not ask him about his innocence, then why should he be freed? You did not answer that question, but danced around it. If he did not commit the crime, then he should not be imprisoned. But since I know he did commit the crime, he is where he belongs. A man lost his life, please remember that. Addam may be nice and may have helped you in prison, however, he still needs to pay for his crimes.

    And by the way, I did met Vicki and she is also a very nice person. She served her time and is also out of prison now and remarried.

  5. I worked with Fred and he was my friend. He was an honest good officer. His killer should never, ever get out of prison.

  6. timothy and addam were defending their lives while being fired upon by agents…when people decide to become law inforcement agents and live off the tax payers dollar they must realize these things can happen…

  7. Chad Baldwin ,
    Are you the one that was in jail with Addam that posted on here 2 times before putting your last name on here?
    If you were, do you work now? Were you working when you went to jail? if not, then law enforcement have never lived off your taxpaying money (which cops pay taxes too)
    How was the cop living off our tax paying dollars? He was earning a living, getting paid when he was murdered. I would much rather see a cop get paid for doing a job that many can’t handle, than pay for people sitting in jail getting 3 meals a day, roof over their heads and warm..

  8. Chad,

    Were you there? Were you even here in Utah and watch it unfold on TV? I was. It is obvious that you are just taking the word of another inmate on what happened. And just what were you in prison for, Federal Inmate 62060-065? Released in 2004? I will bet it was not for your honesty.

  9. Chad is right. I know Addam better than anybody here and i know more about what happened than anybody here. and all i can say to you people you have no clue.

  12. None of that is true, he’s delusional and thinks he’s some big gangster. he’s not.

  13. he lives with his parents!

  14. I was in the area of the cabin when Fred was shot. I also handled Addam following his shooting, and during the trial. Addam should stay in federal custody.

  15. the thing about chad baldwin here is true…all the stupid brod named mallory that posted here has to do is call her nearest FBI office or get public records on criminal background check for him!….or get a life!…i dont care who he lives with i am sure he has more of a life than %80 percent of the people working some low paying job…i live in washington state now and have since 1995…i went to high school with chad in the 80s…we did run in the same circle of friends up until his arrest in 97..the FBI did come and question me about him at my house in feb-1997…because i did answere some questions i was entitled to discovery of evidence info when he was arrested….

  16. Okay, I’ll pipe in on this one too, as I too know Addam quite well. I can’t say that I know Chad, nor would I really want to. But then again, everyone deserves a second chance, even Addam.

    Addam DID NOT shoot Fred House. Timothy did that. Addam was made out to be the ringleader in this, and truthfully it was Vicki. That being said and all, if one is involved in the death of another person, be it accidental or deliberate, yes they should be punished. The funny thing is that Addam has spent more time in prison than all of his co-defendants. He will in fact do almost 4 times as much time as them. He is spending more time in prison than child molesters and rapists do, even more time than most do for 2nd degree murder and 1st degree murder. More time than a drug dealer or bank robber or even some bombers. How is that fair? What purpose does it serve to keep him locked away while we spend tax dollars in keeping him there? Is Fred House more special than the a little girl who gets raped by some sicko pervert who only gets 3 years in prison or worse, 3 years probation?

    If you consider yourself a good Christian, ask yourself why is it you won’t forgive Addam when he honestly and sincerely asks for forgiveness? Why will you forgive the rapist and not him?

    When people do bad things, they do deserve to be punished, but how much is enough? Who amongst you is without sin?

  17. You want to know what’s sad; in 2008 I was at the public surplus in Salt Lake City and I noticed a nice plaque of of a Bad a… looking guy and his dog. To me and my friends it was just a joke that we were going to buy it and hang in on the wall in our office. Then I noticed another another matching plaque in the pile that was from the Utah State Senate and signed by Governor Bangerter. The really nice! plaque basically talked about LT. House and what happened. The sad part….. the plaque said only 5 of these would be made, 4 will go to the family and 1 will hang at the correctional center to honor Lt. Fred House. I paid $5.00 for the two dusty abandoned plaques labeled (misc. office) and they have been hanging on my wall since. They even have a building in Draper called the Fred House Academy. Couldn’t they have found a place on the wall there? I was only 7 at the time so I knew nothing about it but I asked my mom and she totally remembered how sad the whole ordeal was.

  18. he should be in their for life

  19. don’t let him out he is a terrible person he killed my great uncle fred house
