|Detroit Judge Richard Halloran Warns Cyberbully William Wilson of CartDesigns.com. He will
be keeping a watchful eye on him.
Orders Wilson to leave acclaimed
photographer Gary Suson alone.
Wilson is a disgruntled former employee of the 9/11 Museum who was terminated in 2009 and has been consumed with Suson for seven years. Suson officially photographed the “Recovery Period” at the World Trade Center site and controls the largest and rarest collection of Ground Zero images in the world. Suson is also an FDNY Honorary Battalion Chief, a rare title appointed by the New York Fire Commissioner.
Wilson, according to court documents has sent Suson disturbing emails that claim, amongst other things, that:
1.) Wilson knows and understands Suson better than his own parents did (Wilson knows Suson is recovering from the recent death of his Mother and Father).
2.) Sternly Warns Suson against “pissing me off” and questions Suson’s sexual preferences.
3.) Ridicules Anne Frank, whom Suson’s Museum was inspired by.
4.) In an even more bizarre email, Wilson tells Suson he is willing to leave him alone and remove defamatory websites (in which he compares him to George Zimmerman and others) if Suson "returns monies to 9/11 families and writes a public apology.”
5.) Warns Suson that he has a self-published book coming out on him and would Suson “Like to write the forward?”
6.) Tells Suson that the design of the Museum’s new logo “Sucks.”
7.) Infers that Suson’s friends are in fact secretly gay but that Wilson will "keep it a secret."
8.) Promises not to harm Suson.
9.) That Wilson “knows a whole lotta’ stuff the NY Post would like to know" but that Wilson will "keep it a secret."
10.) Falsely states he won his case against the 9/11 Museum and if he wants, can collect financial damages.

Months later, Wilson then demanded a $9,900.00 tax write-off, which the Museum reluctantly gave him. In 2009, when Suson discovered that Wilson was answering on the Museum’s behalf in online blogs and travel chat forums as well as divulging confidential information, Suson raised concern to Wilson who told him to “shut your mouth and let me handle this.” Ground Zero Museum Workshop fired William Wilson, leading Wilson -- in an act of revenge -- to use his access codes to wipe/delete the Museum’s Website from the Internet -- costing the Museum a small fortune.

In 2011, highly regarded Chief District Judge Deborah Chasanow of Maryland -- appointed personally by President Bill Clinton -- admonished William Wilson (then a resident of Maryland) in federal court and agreed with Ground Zero Museum attorney Tom Wilcox that there was sufficient evidence to move forward with a charge against Wilson of “Trespass to Chattels” for destroying the 9/11 Museum’s website, however, Suson did not finish Wilson off -- so to speak -- as Suson was having serious health issues related to his work at Ground Zero and didn’t have the health capacity to engage the lawsuit any further. Furthermore, the potential monies being re-routed and spent on prosecuting Bill Wilson for another two years would have cost the Museum’s FDNY charities tens of thousands of dollars. Suson also believed this was the end of William Wilson. It was until Wilson re-surfaced in September, 2014, launching a new, re-vamped defamatory website and began pummeling Suson with disgusting emails. Suson, who hails from a small farm in Barrington, Illinois, never banked on being stalked and cyberbullied when FDNY Rudy Sanfilippo of the Uniformed Firefighter’s Association first discovered him and placed him in one of the most coveted positions of any photographer of the last century. By the time Sanfilippo crossed paths with the “kid” as he nicknamed him, Suson already had an impressive track record for a 20-something year-old guy, having four years under his belt serving as legendary artist LeRoy Neiman’s personal photographer. Back then, in 2001, Suson simply thought he was doing his duty as an American -- to contribute to the relief efforts after the 9/11 attacks. Then came William Wilson of Cart Designs, which he never banked on.
HE’S BACK. In September, 2014, Wilson re-launched an old website that he had taken down during the lawsuit -- but while the website’s name was the same, the website’s defamatory material is brand new. Then came the disturbing emails. Wilson, clearly fixated and obsessed with Gary Suson, surfs the Internet late at night looking for chat rooms and blogs or anything having to do with the September 11 attacks at the World Trade Center and inserts the URL to his cyberbullying website on Suson, attempting to make it rise in the search engines. Wilson’s “work" is studied carefully -- with a paper trail to every site he visits -- as he plants his seeds. In this new website, Wilson juxtaposes a 2009 image he snapped of Suson when he was overweight and deathly sick with Swine Flu next to pictures of an obese Marlon Brando and Dom Deluise. Wilson even manages to make a mockery of Holocaust victim Anne Frank on his website, which has supposedly angered some Jewish groups. Suson’s Museum, FYI was inspired by his 2004 trip to the Anne Frank House. There is nothing off-limits to William Wilson, who according to Gary Suson and court documents, won’t stop until he is dead. Reached for comment in New York, Suson stated to me, “I believe that at some point William Wilson will try to harm me. He is consumed -- fixated with me -- I am his life and his full-time job. I live in fear all the time.” In a terrifying email from Bill Wilson to Gary Suson dated October 10, 2014, Wilson states at the end of his rant-filled tome, “And Gary, I’d be awful careful about pissing me off, were I you."
|Maryland Judge Deborah Chasanow in 2011 agreed that Gary Suson’s stalker William Wilson violated thelaw -- when Wilson yanked the 9/11 Museum’s website off the Internet -- which cleared the way for a lawsuit by the 9/11 Museum against Wilson. Wilson has returned in 2014-15 to continue his harassment of Suson via cyber bullying and vicious emails.|

It is a sad state of affairs when stalkers and cyberbullies, so unfulfilled in their own lives, have to latch on like a parasite to celebrities and public figures, becoming consumed with them to a manic level. One can only hope that Mr. Wilson can let go and focus on his own life and let Mr. Suson live his life in peace. Digital Warehouse in New York City is currently finishing up a short documentary entitled STALKED about the seven years of harassment by William Wilson upon Gary Marlon Suson. There is no release date as of yet.
