EARLIER: EVIL Robert Bostic frantically made phone calls from the Lake County Jail to friends and family. The message was clear: tell the cops nothing. Bostic is on trial for the slaying of rival biker
Carlton Richmond, PICTURED LEFT, June 25, 1982 in Round Lake Beach, Illinois. He called a pal and issued the edict.

“I told him pretty much nothing. I didn’t remember much from that long ago,” John Winandy said of his questioning last November by Det. Gary Lunn.
