Stoeckley always maintained that CID agent Ivory was corrupt and that he was personally involved in the Fort Bragg drugs scene. He did attend the 2012 evidentiary hearing, but I have never seen a transcript of what he said. There was some brief report that he is now going deaf. It's true that he was very inexperienced to be the senior officer in charge of the MacDonald case investigation. There is a bit of background to all this at this website:

Fred Bost and I agreed, after reading the MP and CID statements, that
the prosecutors’ claims of a protected crime scene were overstated, to
say the least. In those first fifteen minutes, major errors had occurred.
We then addressed a more crucial question: Did the failure to guard the
scene during that fifteen minutes lead to contamination of any key pieces
of evidence, items which, specifically, led to Ivory’s theory, and to the
army’s accusation?
