Earley says he died July 4th at the Butner Prison in Butner, North Carolina of acute kidney failure, about one month shy of a parole hearing. In his blog, Earley explains Arthur was the older brother of John Anthony Walker Jr., "who remains in poor health, at the same Butner prison. John, who is 76, is scheduled for parole on May 20, 2015, but is in the later stages of throat cancer, according to a family friend."
