Javier Ramos and Joe Clark shared an apartment in Panama City, Florida in late summer of 1994. Ramos then moved to Miami but returned to Panama City on October 2, 1994. Before he left Miami, he told a dancer at the exotic dance club he managed that he had to take care of people in Panama City. When she asked him if he planned to murder anyone, he said he would if he had to at . I remember Javier Ramos when he was the manager of the Toy box Strip Club in Panama City Fl, he always carried a .380 semi auto Beretta pistol in his pants pocket or on his right hip in a holster under his suit jacket.
Javier Ramos was also linked to a drug ring that was bringing cocaine into the Naval Base at Panama City Beach Florida where after the murders one of his strippers and a seaman were arrested smuggling cocaine into the Naval Base. Most likely the murders at the Show n Tail topless night club on Thomas Drive were directly linked to the cocaine smuggling at the nearby Naval Base, see map above.
