The Kingsmen Murders Mystery

Andre “Li’l Bear” Jenkins who rode away from a double murder in the early morning hours of September 6, 2014 angrily shouting an acronym for “Live Kingsmen Die Kingsmen” was not himself a Kingsmen and he did not own a motorcycle. He was riding a borrowed bike,

“He had been a striker with the club,” a source explained. “He was kicked out because he owed money and he didn’t have a bike. You know. We’re a motorcycle club.” Multiple sources spoke to The Aging Rebel about the murders and the subsequent trial on conditions of anonymity. “You might be writing about me next,” one source said. The Aging Rebel considers the sources credible. “The murders were totally out of the realm of what we’re about,” one of the sources said.


The Kingsmen Motorcycle Club is a three piece patch club but “not a one percenter club.” A source called it a “truly non-affiliated club.” The Kingsmen was founded in 1958 and now has 21 chapters. “We have nine chapters in New York, two in Pennsylvania, one in Tennessee and nine in Florida.” Jenkins “struck,” or prospected, with the Volusia County chapter.

Jenkins was convicted last week by a Lockport, New York jury of executing Kingsmen Paul Maue and Daniel “DJ” Szymanski as they sat in a parked car near the Kingsmen’s North Tonawanda, New York chapter clubhouse. Jenkins has a thin history with motorcycling. In 1998, he was convicted of First Degree Burglary in South Dakota and sentenced to 18 years in prison. He was released on parole in August 2010 and became an absconder. He most recently worked at a car wash in DeLand, Florida. He was arrested near Savannah, Georgia last November on a charge unrelated to the murders.

At his trial earlier this month, prosecutors theorized that Jenkins was a club “enforcer” who had been sent to New York by club national president David Pirk to kill Kingsmen who wanted to leave the club. In some published news accounts, Maue has been described as a member of the Nickel City Nomads Motorcycle Club. Pirk lives in Florida, remains president of the club and has not been charged with any crime. The sources dispute the idea that Maue and Szymanski were about to leave the Kingsmen.

Living Kingsmen

“They weren’t thinking of leaving the club at all. We were drinking with them, hugging them and calling them brother just two days before,” a source said.

The sources describe the Kingsmen as a mostly law abiding club that has patched out about 70 members in the last two years. “We did go through some internal strife and got rid of the guys who wanted to be the Sons of Anarchy,” one of the sources said. “Everybody in the club now is a working guy. We ride and party hard and then we go home to our wives and our kids.” Some of the expelled Kingsmen became members of the Rebels Motorcycle Club. Some joined the Nickel City Nomads, who the sources describe as a support club for the American Outlaws Association.

“None of the guys we cleaned out even got beat up,” a source said. “We knew we were going to run into these guys down the road. We want to be cordial to every club.”

The sources also describe Roger Albright, one of the prosecution’s chief witnesses against Jenkins, as an out bad Kingsmen. “We caught him stealing red-handed,” a source said. “It was hard for him because he was living in a club house so he lost where he lived.” Albright testified that he burned Jenkins’ bloody clothes after the murders. “He’s not telling the truth about burning the clothes,” one of the sources claimed.

Poor Club

The night of the murders, the sources say, Jenkins made multiple trips between the North Tonawanda clubhouse and a nearby bar. A prosecution witness testified that Jenkins lured Maue and Szymanski to their deaths with the promise of a cocaine deal. “That’s possible,” a source said. “We frown on that but we’re not the party police. They didn’t just get in the car with him once that night. They got into the car three times.” Jenkins shot both men in the head from the back seat of the car as they sat in the front seat.

The sources do not seem to understand the motive for the murders beyond “we think it must have been some personal thing.” But they are concerned that they have now become the target of a federal investigation. Conceding that there is “probably a grand jury,” one source said “this is going to screw up a lot of good men that are trying to do the right thing.”

“We’re a poor club,” he said. “We don’t have money for lawyers. If you go back to 1958 and you look at how many police have been charged and how many Kingsmen have been charged, you’ll see the cops are way more dirty that we are. I’m not saying the cops are dirty. I’m just saying any organization has guys in it that do the wrong thing.”

    Thanks for the article.

    Well said thank you!

  3. Paladin Says:

    The first paragraph of this story reminded me of Vince. Actually, come to think of it, the whole story reminded me of Vince and why poseurs like Vince are so dangerous.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),

    @ Paladin

  5. old & stoned Says:

    yea, something doesn’t smell quite right. notice they even had the obligatory ‘jailhouse confession’ , a healthy part of any good federal indictment, and an ‘out bad’ cozy with the DA. oh goody goody, another fair trial

  6. old & stoned Says:

    Rebel, thanks much, btw for the update

  7. TXBiker Says:

    Excellent observation…..

  8. FF Says:

    There seems to be alot of talking with this club, then there’s more talking to explain all the talking.

    I regret even commenting on this trainwreck in the first place.

  9. Wolfenlover Says:

    Just fuckin’ SAD a POS who didn’t have a patch, is just like Paladin stated!
    A shit-stain vinnie act. BUT, I bet ya vinnie wouldn’t have the cajones to
    do something like this. He’d PAY somebody else to do his dirty work, THEN, Think this sort of stupidity would get him in good.
    Hope this fuck Jenkins enjoys “scripted” life. “HEY BUBBA! Untrustworthy
    comin’ your house!”

  10. Mad Dog Says:

    Rebel, thanks for filling in at least a couple of the blanks for us, but I think we’re still a long way from knowing what actually happened. If they’re truly “not a 1% er club,” with a “we want to get along with everybody” attitude and a history of acrimony-free departures of club members, I can understand why they’d want to get their story out.

    But something troubles me. I think they clearly know more about the story than they’re telling Rebel. I wonder how Rebel’s source knows that the informant Albright lied about burning Jenkins’s bloody clothes.

  11. old & stoned Says:

    the ‘math’ don’t add up. allegedly a nat’l P has a flaky prospect clean house, and use ‘out bad’ subcontractor? yup, that’s a plan.

  12. rollinnorth Says:

    A train wreck, indeed. All that talking and talking to explain the talking is gong to put a whole lot of people under a conspiracy / RICO indictment. At this point, the Federal prosecutor won’t have to do much more than read the Grand Jury a transcript of Jenkins’ trial. Who knows, maybe there will even be a special guest appearance by the failed “striker” who brought all this shit to town. Isn’t he still facing a Federal gun charge?
    Strange days indeed.

  13. rollinnorth Says:

    Thank you, Rebel, for the follow up. I’m sure there is more to come.


  14. Phuquehed Says:

    It’s a shame shit-stains like Jenkins try bring a whole club down, and all for just being a fucking air-wasting scumbag.

    Best of luck to the Kingsmen MC, I hope the fedtards leave you guys alone and shove their RICO up their asses.

  15. BMW Says:

    It begins to look like a poseur with a drug habit and no place to stay killed two club members — perhaps in a vain attempt to “gain street cred”, a failed drug deal, or a robbery. I think we have all seen these addicted fools with delusions of grandeur over the years. Before the ridiculous “Sons of Anarchy” such poseurs were usually telling everybody they were Mob hit men, drug dealers or spies. Now the losers all claim to be 1% bikers.

    If the actions of the poseur didn’t include murder, it might be comical. Here the actions tragically resulted in the murder of two real bikers.

    I remember an old “Rockford Files ” show about two poseurs who were trying to impress a Mob boss, and I laughed at their silly stunts, which were along the lines of what Stevie Cookiestealer does these days, their actions directed by a total misunderstanding of reality. Unfortunately, I think the Clubman murders were perpetrated by a poseur driven by false, media- and LEO-spread delusions.


  16. Rebel Says:

    Dear wny_wtf,

    What a shock.


  17. HoldThePhone Says:

    The pieces are falling into place. First, guy gets himself hooked on drugs, ends up loosing his place to stay and his bike due to his habbit.

    If he was in fact out, patch holders are an obvious target for retribution. When caught, blame the whole club via the boss in an attempt to bring down the orginization that wanted you gone.

    (tinfoil hat)
    I wonder if Jenkins did all this to impress the love of his live, Vince. “Hey look! I can be like Sons of Anarchy! Can I please you master? Will you let your Urine Order buddies run a train on me?
    (end tinfoil hat)

    I swear Sons of Anarchy has done more damage to the lifestyle…

  18. The Confederate Celt Says:

    Once again, we learn from LE & the Feds that the most dangerous crime king pins ride around on noisy 2 wheeled vehicles with the name of their criminal organization displayed on the middle of their backs instead of being quietly invisible and out of sight.

    By the way, if you haven’t heard, LE & the Feds also has this bridge to NYC for sale real cheap………….

  19. BigAng Diamondback Says:

    Nice Article, Rebel. Thanks

    Big Ang Diamondback

  20. toad Says:

    Rebel thank you for your honestly and respect
    both in your comments and coverage of these dark events

  21. Dark Corner Says:

    I stepped down in good standings from a club that started in ’58. The Feds would bring up shit brothers did 20 years earlier when they wanted to paint us bad. Not every cop is a fucking liar, but every cop knows one that is.

  22. RVN69 Says:

    @Dark Corner, Every Cop may not be a liar, but they can usually reach out and touch one without moving their feet.

    Rebel, thanks for your work on every article, not just this one. I am always surprised that no one on a jury questions the truthfulness of jail house snitches, cause I know that if I ever kill two people and get caught, the very first thing I’m gonna do when the lock the jail door is find someone I never met before in my life and spill my guts to him!!

    Fuck all snitches and rats

  23. Troll 1% PMC Says:

    wny wtf You got some very stupid sheeple that respond to that newspaper.sorry bout your luck.


  24. puterindabasketchief Says:

    Patching in 70 new members in two years for a club that size seems like an invitation for headaches, but what do i know? Nothing, it seems, anymore.

  25. Rebel Says:

    Dear puterindabasketchief,

    I have been told that the Kingsmen patched OUT about 70 guys. Some of them became Rebels MC. I was told the club, at least in New York state, was trying to clean house.


  26. puterindabasketchief Says:

    Adding reading comprehension to my list of things to improve. Thanks for the clarification. Much appreciated.

  27. Rockatansky Says:

    Well, I did what research I could (read: a couple of google searches, plus going through the archives on Aging Rebel), and the club in this story has been in the news a few times for things that might seem, to an outsider, to be a lot like the things a one percenter club could be in the news for. Specifically, they’re portrayed as having been in a series of violent conflicts with other clubs in the mid-Atlantic area, and with two of the the big national/international clubs. Of course, maybe that’s ancient history.

  28. Wolfenlover Says:

    Rockatansky. WTF are you writing about??!! NO comprehension, or what!
    Ball is in your court! DUH!

  29. FF Says:

    I smell Budweiser.

    Public service announcement:

    This whole “I’m a 1% er” and “we’re not a 1% er club” crap? When I hear it, a red flag goes up.

    Evedybody knows who THE REAL is. Its palpable. It goes without saying.


    You’re not fooling anybody and if you are then they’re a pig and you’re a fucking asshole.

    Just stop the fucking nonsense already.

  30. riddlersrevenge Says:

    It’s great watching and listening to all this, yep he was guilty , yes he was full patched the b.s. about being kicked out was a cover especially when he arrived in NY with the National. I hope his ass fries and for Dj and Pauly they were great guys all people had to do is get to know them..

  31. Dolph Says:
