Lynn Kenny

Lynn Kenny (born c. 1949; died May 25, 2012) was involved in marketing unproven medical treatments, including a ray beam emitter which he claimed could cure cancer and AIDS.

Kenny was the son of Richard and Susie Kenny. He grew up in Fultondale and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. He later became interested in the radionics devices developed and promoted in the 1930s by California inventor Royal Rife. He founded the Beam Ray Company in 1986 through which he marketed and sold a "frequency generator", with claims that, "any disease out there can be affected and effectively treated with a beam ray device."

Kenny died in 2012 and is buried at Jefferson Memorial Gardens in Trussville.

Kenny's success inspired fellow Fultondale resident Christopher Key, who employed frequency generators to "program" ionized water, holographic decals, and other products sold by S.W.A.T.S. before it was shut down by the State of Alabama in 2013.
