Disappeared: Deanne Hastings My Leading Theory

2020.09.14 18:14 SherlockBeaver Disappeared: Deanne Hastings My Leading Theory

In more than 75% of homicides, the victim knows their killer; nearly 30% of homicide perpetrators are family members. Among women who are murdered, more than half are murdered by their intimate partner. The force of emotions that exist in familial and romantic relationships are the most powerful that people experience in their lifetimes. Even what appear to be the closest of marriages and the most respectable of families have been known to experience fatal violence going all the way back to Cain and Abel.
This review of Deanne Hasting’s case takes a very close look at the actions and words of Deanne’s fiancé at the time she disappeared. Hopefully another review of the timeline and supporting facts will help lead us to what happened to Deanne. I rely most heavily on the information provided in interviews with Deanne's closest relatives from the ID Disappeared program (Season 8, episode 13 “The Long Way Home”) and The Vanished Podcast Episode 44, because it is the information of those who knew Deanne best or were the closest to Deanne when she disappeared, in their own words that we can listen to for ourselves.
Background
Deanne Hastings (maiden name Crider) was born 2/27/1980 in Pahrump, Nevada. She was a thirty-five year-old mother of three at the time she disappeared from Spokane, Washington on November 4, 2015. Deanne has a history of bipolar disorder, going missing and even attempted suicide. This webpage offers some real insight into Deanne’s struggles as well as an honest and loving tribute from an artist who was Deanne’s longtime friend and more.
Just months before Deanne vanished this seemingly final time, she had been out of touch with all of her friends and family for 6 days. A mostly redacted copy of a June 12, 2015 police incident report I obtained that was initiated by Deanne's eldest son, Hayden states the following:
"Hayden Green called Crime Check on June 12, 2015 at 20:38 to report that he hasn't heard from his mom, Deanne Hastings (listed Deanne Crider), since 6/9/15. Hayden has checked with other friends and family and no one has heard from her, not even her live in boyfriend Mike Tibbetts."
That case was closed when Deanne returned home on June 15, 2015. Apparently no search was conducted, nor was any media attention brought to Deanne’s disappearance on that occasion. Why not? Mike Tibbetts was Deanne’s live-in boyfriend when she went missing in June but apparently Mike was not as concerned then as he was in November.
Deanne and Mike became engaged around two months following her return from that episode and around two months before she disappeared. Did this change in their relationship status affect Mike’s actions in November? In his ID Disappeared interview Mike Tibbetts says: “In her past she would leave for a couple days or different times like that. She would respond here and there to texts and stuff.” Mike has been through this with Deanne before. Does Mike know where Deanne went during the times she disappeared before? According to Deanne’s artist friend, many times she would run to him wherever he was living, or he would come to where she was and they would hide from the world in a hotel. Apparently some of the times like this time, Deanne wandered the streets and made friends with strangers.
This time something kept Deanne from ever coming back to the people who loved her. Deanne had a long history of disappearing and of “episodes” where her mother says in her ID Disappeared interview that she sometimes didn’t even recognize her own daughter and Deanne’s brother Carson also describes Deanne as being like a different person during those times, full of foul and hurtful language. Unfortunately, these episodes had been occurring since Deanne’s later teenage years regardless of being on or off of any medication. Like many sufferers of bipolar disorder, Deanne clearly had a difficult time getting the right dose or combination of medications.
Although her brother Carson and Mike Tibbets refer to “the insurance” and “the insurance company” in their ID Disappeared interviews, the fact is that Deanne was on Medicaid due to her low income and other factors. One of the “credit” cards a person of interest in this case, Randy Riley, was caught using of Deanne’s was not a credit card according to police, but rather her EBT (food stamp) card which he used at a WinCo grocery store. Perhaps they did not wish to cause shame to Deanne (the only shame is that Deanne was denied her medication), but Mike Tibbetts states in his interview on ID Disappeared that he had offered to pay cash for Deanne’s medication so that she could have the preferred one and Deanne was “told” [by her caseworker?] that if they did that, Deanne would be dropped from “insurance coverage”. No one is dropped from private insurance coverage for not using their benefits and paying cash instead. When you go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, you will be charged the full price in cash unless you present an insurance card and nobody cares because you’re paying to have the insurance benefit whether you use it or not and when you don’t use it, that is money the insurance company does not have to reimburse. It is Medicaid recipients who have to demonstrate financial need. Obviously, it is a terrible shame that anyone would deny Deanne the particular medication her physician thought she needed. It may help some people deflect their own guilt and responsibility to spread blame around or feel validated in making political hay of this case, but what is important is finding Deanne.
The Disappearance
Tuesday, November 3, 2015
Deanne attends her first day of cosmetology school at Glen Dow Academy just six blocks from where her vehicle will later be found. Deanne spent the latter part of her evening with her now daughter-in-law (DIL) Melanie Green doing her nails and discussing their relationships with the men in their lives, as they frequently did.
9:30 pm
Melanie Green (DIL) goes home after spending the evening with Deanne doing nails and talking about their relationships. Deanne responds to Melanie’s text sometime between 9:30-10:00 pm when Melanie arrived home. Deanne’s last message to DIL says “Love you see you soon”.
10:00 pm
Deanne’s last reported use of her cell phone is a text to her son Hayden telling him that she went to school that day and that she hopes he is proud of her.
10:00-10:15 pm?
Deanne possibly executes a plan to leave the home she shares with her fiancé Mike Tibbetts by distracting him with a handwritten note about going to the store while she made her way to a downtown nightclub. If true, then for reasons known only to her Deanne chose to execute this plan instead of waiting for Mike to return home just a few minutes later and invite him to go with her to the club, or to tell Mike the truth about where she was going.
10:15 -10:30 pm
Mike arrives home from work (he worked 12:00 pm -10:00 pm shifts) and claims he found a note from Deanne inside the home that according to Tibbetts’ words on the ID Disappeared episode said:
“…that she had a good day, and she was just, got done doing nails and she was going to run to the store.”
That is a lot of information in a handwritten note that really only needed to say "Ran to the store BRB”. If Deanne were actually running to the store and coming home, she could have told Mike about her day when she returned. If Deanne actually meant to let Mike know that she was at the store in case he found the house empty when he came home or he wanted anything from the store, she would have text him. Deanne had just been texting her DIL and son minutes before she allegedly picked up a pen and wrote a note for Mike Tibbetts that he has never allowed police to see. Mike maintains that the handwritten note is the last thing Deanne ever wrote to him and that is why he cannot part with it, even though he has known that the note was a complete lie by the 4th day that Deanne was missing at the latest. Mike’s refusal to ever turn over either the alleged note or Deanne’s cell phone in the early days and weeks of the investigation into her disappearance, Mike’s actions are not those of a man who really wants to find out what happened to Deanne. Mike’s memories of the note seem to vary slightly. In this interview published 9 days after Deanne went missing Mike says:
“There was a note that said ‘Ran to store, just got done doing girls nails, had a great day,’"
The article further states: “It’s easy to memorize a simple note, especially when it’s the last time you’ve heard from the one you love.” Except Mike doesn’t “memorize” Deanne’s note. He paraphrases it each time and by February 2016 Mike seems to be remembering the night Deanne left home differently than he reported to police:
“The last thing I heard come out of her mouth was I love you," he said. "She went to the store that night, and I haven't seen her since.”
No mention of any note. The note matters because if it ever existed, it would support Mike’s version of the evening: that nothing at all was amiss between himself and Deanne and that whatever happened to cause Deanne to leave the house that night had nothing to do with Mike because it happened before he got home.
11:30 pm Mike gets concerned that Deanne is not home from the store because it is five minutes away. This would be a market now called Rosauer's Market. Out of concern, Mike says he drove to that store. Mike reports that the store was closed, so he returns home. Why does he drive to the store instead of texting, then calling Deanne’s phone? Did Mike do those things first and then drive to the store? He does not report doing so. This is the nearest market to their house. Most people know what time the nearest market to their house closes. Did Mike really think he would find Deanne at the closed market, rather than assume she must be making a stop some place else by then that was open later? Deanne could have gone to a Walgreens that was open late, or been picking up fast food or a pizza. It is interesting that within an hour Mike is already out on the street looking for Deanne on this night.
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
2:30-3:00 am
Mike tracks Deanne’s phone to a parking lot at 919 Sprague in downtown Spokane which is next to The Knitting Factory, a music venue just six blocks from the cosmetology school Deanne attended the morning before. If Mike was able to trace Deanne’s phone using location services, then he also had access to and surely would have looked at her phone usage online to see who she was communicating with besides him before she left their house. Mike should have easily been able to see that there were texts to her son’s and his girlfriend’s numbers in the minutes before he came home. Nonetheless, Mike never actually contacts either one of them himself to ask what Deanne might have said about what she was planning to do that night.
Mike decides to wait by Deanne’s car for the rest of the night. This is an interesting choice considering that the temperature was below freezing that night. Deanne had not been robbed, because Mike found her purse and cell phone secured inside the car. It seems reasonable to assume that Deanne had gone to the club next door and left her purse in the car so she could dance. If Deanne had consumed alcohol, it would be reasonable for her to have gotten a ride home or taken a cab. Mike’s choices seem to prioritize seeing who Deanne might be with when she returned to her car. Mike has claimed that he stayed with Deanne’s car all night in the freezing cold because he wanted to make sure her car did not get broken into with her purse and phone inside. That sounds like a reasonable, too except that after this first night Mike does not call AAA for locksmith service and a tow home. Instead Mike leaves Deanne’s car parked in that same spot in downtown Spokane with her purse and phone inside for *four more nights* beginning on Wednesday.
Overnight
We now know that Deanne Hastings met a grocery store employee of what is now called Yoke's Fresh Market on Spokane-Cheney Road, (known as Latham Trading Company at the time) and that Deanne spent the night with that grocery store employee (GSE). According to the GSE’s information, he met Deanne in front of The Knitting Factory and they went off to party together for the night. In the morning the GSE took Deanne in his car to the grocery store where he worked to purchase cigarettes. The GSE says when he got back to his car, Deanne was gone but she had left her keys behind. He drove around the shopping center, did not see Deanne and left. Deanne was just two miles from home then and she would end up walking most of those two miles in the direction of her home later that afternoon.
7:30-8:00 am
Mike calls Glen Dow Academy to see whether Deanne has shown up for her second day of classes. Glen Dow Academy is located six blocks from where Deanne left her vehicle. Mike must have made quite an impression on whoever he spoke to on the phone about Deanne, because the school owner offered to start making missing person flyers right away instead of minding their own business over an adult staying out all night. Mike says he then began to distribute the missing person flyers all over downtown Spokane. Deanne had been missing less than twelve hours at that point.
Maybe it was reasonable for Mike to call Deanne’s new school and let the administrators know that she had been out all night because Mike was genuinely worried about Deanne’s well being. On the other hand, Mike does not say that he tried calling any hospitals or jails, he does not try going home to see whether or not Deanne has returned there and most importantly, Mike also *does not call* the last two people Deanne Hastings’ phone records would indicate she texted in the minutes before Mike arrived home to (allegedly) find a handwritten note from Deanne about going to the store.
Mike does not go to work during the first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance. That is how alarmed he is by her being gone overnight this time. It is not clear how Mike accounts for his time and whereabouts during those first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance other than that he alternately went around the city with missing person flyers, waited at her car and drove the streets looking for Deanne. Every day after Wednesday Mike does go to work.
12:23 pm
Officer Davida Zinkgraf responds to numerous calls for a welfare check requested by strangers in the shopping center parking lot of what is now Yoke’s Fresh Market. These witnesses reported a disoriented and possibly intoxicated/addled woman who had entered a salon and called a woman working there “Mommy", who was now laying on the ground and claiming to witnesses that she may have been drugged, kidnapped and beaten. Deanne would not speak to EMTs or police when they arrived, nor would she give anyone her name or say where she lived although she did tell the ladies attempting to intervene on her behalf that she did not want to go home. When Deanne will not repeat any of the claims about being drugged or beaten to police, does not appear beaten, *refuses to give her name* and then walks away from Officer Zinkgraf, Officer Zinkgraf continues to observe Deanne for another 20 minutes and then reluctantly leaves. Deanne has civil rights and Officer Zinkgraf has an entire city to look after. Deanne is not required to identify herself to police when she is not suspected of any crime. Police cannot detain Deanne for telling wild stories to strangers, nor apparently even for public intoxication because as Officer Zinkgraf explains in the ID Disappeared episode, Spokane does not have a law prohibiting public intoxication. There is also no law in Washington that allows authorities to remand citizens for psychiatric evaluation because of statements by strangers. Civil commitment requires family members to swear out an affidavit that they have observed their family member being a threat to themselves or others. Yes, it is tragically unfortunate that Deanne could not be intervened upon by police and EMT services on the day she disappeared, but hopefully everyone can stop asking how they could have just let Deanne be on her way, because that question has been asked and answered.
12:30 pm
In Officer Zingkraf’s continued observation of Deanne after their initial contact, Deanne enters the grocery store where she uses her debit card to purchase: energy drinks, string cheese, birthday candles, cigarettes and vodka. Mike, who has been out distributing missing person flyers and/or waiting by Deanne’s car, says that he received an alert on his phone that Deanne’s card was used at the grocery store where the GSE works. Did Mike have alerts set on the card for every transaction Deanne made like parents do when they give their teenager a credit card? Mike takes the alert not as notice of potential theft following a crime against Deanne, but as confirmation that Deanne is well and making a purchase. This is why Mike does not rush to the store, he isn’t actually concerned about Deanne’s safety or what has happened to her. He means to see who she is with and confront her. That is why even though Mike apparently believes that Deanne is well and making a purchase, instead of going home he decides to return to/continue to stay with with Deanne’s car. Mike says he believed Deanne would come back to her vehicle and his priority isn’t to get warm or get some sleep, it’s still to see who Deanne is with and confront her. Mike was not going to wait for Deanne to get home.
Sometime after 12:30 pm
Deanne encounters Randy Riley (RR) and his friend “James” on their way to a storage unit RR has rented that is within two blocks of the grocery store where Deanne has just made her purchases. According to both RR and James they hung out with Deanne for a few hours. Storage facility surveillance shows the three of them smiling and interacting in a very friendly manner. The two men are on bicycles. Neither of the men appears to have access to any vehicles of their own with which to move personal belongings, let alone a body (Deanne’s brother Carson confirms this in the Vanished podcast) and none of the trio seem to make any effort to make use of Deanne’s vehicle.
1:30 pm
Storage surveillance shows Randy Riley and Deanne and James leaving the storage facility.
2:30 pm
(information received by police November 25, 2015 three weeks after Deanne disappears and after Randy Riley’s name was released to the media) RR’s landlord who was in the process of evicting him now claims that she remembers seeing Deanne with RR and another man on Wednesday, November 4th near where he claims that he left her and that Deanne was sitting or lying on the ground again.
Another woman who lived near Inland Empire Way believes that she saw Deanne walking with RR and James on I.E. Way and lying on the ground on that day, as well. That witness claims that she was concerned enough to stop and ask Deanne if she was ok, since she was lying on the ground. Deanne told this witness that she was just upset because she was “going through a divorce” and she seemed in control enough of herself that this neighbor moved on. RR does not deny that he was with Deanne on the last day she was seen nor does he deny that he is the last person willing to admit to having seen her.
2:30-4:00 pm
A few hours after Mike learns Deanne used her card at the grocery store, he finally decides to leave Deanne's car downtown and go to that store with Deanne's missing person flyers in hand. There Mike has his first encounter with the GSE in the parking lot outside of the store. The GSE says Deanne looks familiar, but that it's probably not the same girl. It is possible Deanne did not look exactly like her photos on the night she left home because she was disheveled, but it is also possible that the GSE did not want to immediately admit to a frantic man with a missing person flyer of his fiancée who did not appear missing when he spent the night with her. The GSE may have been wary - for good reason - of becoming involved in what appeared to be a domestic situation.
Mike enters the grocery store and asks another store employee if he would be able to look at store surveillance and according to Mike in his Disappeared interview:
“...she said I had to wait and speak with the manager there, so I called the next day (Thursday) and he said I could come in that Saturday and look through it.”
Mike does not report taking the missing person flyers to the surrounding businesses in the shopping center where the grocery store was located, but maybe he did. It would have made sense for him to do so, since he claims he was papering downtown Spokane with the flyers and the shopping center was now Deanne’s most likely last known location. If Mike had contacted the surrounding businesses to leave flyers, he would have been told about Deanne being at the salon calling people “Mommy” and that police and EMTs had been dispatched for the woman on his flyer. Mike would have been told that Deanne was alone and on foot. He would have immediately searched the surrounding neighborhood for Deanne.
At this point on Wednesday afternoon after 2:30 pm Mike puts himself at the grocery store where Deanne made her last purchases. He is less than two miles from where Randy Riley and James claim to have parted ways with Deanne and approximately 1000ft from his home with Deanne. A Google maps search shows that there are very few streets in that area.
The time period from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday deserves a microscope on it, because this is when Deanne actually goes missing. There is one person who according to his own information was devoting himself to nothing else except tracking down Deanne Hastings during that time period and that person is Mike Tibbetts.
Thursday, November 5, 2015
Mike finally reports Deanne missing to police on Thursday morning. He then calls the manager of the grocery store where Deanne’s debit card was last used. In the ID Disappeared episode Mike calmly tells us that the grocery store manager told him over the phone on Thursday that he could come in two days later to look through the video. Mike presses neither the manager of the store nor police to review the video surveillance immediately that would either confirm Deanne was using her own debit card, or point to a suspect in her disappearance. There is apparently none of the urgency that Mike felt when contacting Deanne’s school the morning before. Although he has allegedly been putting up missing person flyers all over town since the day before, Mike now seems to easily accept that no one will review the surveillance video until Saturday and he returns to work. Mike has still not called the last two people Deanne’s phone sent and received texts from: Deanne’s son and her DIL, nor does he call Deanne’s mother who lives only an hour away with Deanne’s two younger children to ask whether she has heard from Deanne. Instead, Mike goes to the media for help in *promoting* Deanne's disappearance. Deanne’s mother had to learn that her daughter was missing from Deanne’s brother who lived in Texas, who had to learn that his sister was missing when he was called by a friend in Spokane who saw the news report on tv. That makes no sense if Mike was genuinely concerned with locating Deanne on Wednesday and Thursday. Mike tells interviewers that he didn’t wish to alarm Deanne’s family. That makes no sense when he is attempting to locate Deanne by all of these other alarming means. When Deanne was out of touch with all her friends and family including Mike Tibbetts for what turned out to be 6 days in June according to the above-referenced police incident report, Mike Tibbetts never did report Deanne missing (nor did he launch a frantic search and contact the media), her son did and Deanne's teenaged son Hayden had the sense to contact friends and family before he made such a report to police.
Saturday, November 7, 2015
Mike is able to view the surveillance video at the grocery store where Deanne made her purchases. She is alone on video, but clearly disoriented as other witnesses described. Mike does not request police to accompany him to view or take control of a copy of the video.
Sunday, November 8, 2015
6:00 am
Mike gets a call from the GSE who has been following media coverage of Deanne’s disappearance. The GSE now says he thinks Deanne is a girl he spent the night with on Tuesday/Wednesday and he agrees to meet with Mike to answer more questions.
10:30-11:00 am
The GSE meets with Mike and gives him Deanne's keys. Now Mike says he is finally able to retrieve Deanne’s phone and move her vehicle from the parking lot in downtown Spokane. Mike has made no effort in four days’ time to contact AAA or any other method of locksmith/tow service to secure and remove Deanne’s belongings or vehicle from the parking lot where she left it the night she left home. Again, this is telling since Mike originally felt that securing Deanne’s vehicle required him to stay with the vehicle all night in freezing temperatures.
In his ID Disappeared appearance Mike says of his meeting with the Grocery Store Employee:
“He was very not impressive at all.”
It’s hard to imagine in what way the Grocery Store Employee could have been impressive in this case. What sort of a presentation was Mike expecting the GSE to wow him with? Two years after the fact, Mike still shows seething jealousy/disgust on camera that Deanne went home with this... grocery store employee she met on the street outside of a nightclub, when he was prepared to make her his wife. In his ID Disappeared interview Mike says:
“Obviously I asked him if he had gotten together with her or anything like that. He said that he didn’t, that he had a girlfriend and all those things. I just didn’t believe him. He just didn’t, I don’t know. Just something about him.”
Mike seems like his skin is crawling thinking about his fiancée with this man. Who could blame him?
Sometime after 5:00 pm
Mike raises some sort of mini-posse consisting of a couple of friends and they go to the GSE’s house pretending in super-dramatic fashion like he was going to force his way in if he had to, without the police. The GSE cooperates with Mike and no sign of Deanne is found.
December 10, 2015
Randy Riley (RR) is arrested for identity theft. RR admits to using Deanne’s credit/debit cards. RR first states that Deanne gave him the cards to get something to eat. According to RR’s second version of how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, on November 5, 2015, he was in a truck belonging to a friend who was helping him move belongings from a nearby the apartment from whence RR was being evicted, to his nearby storage unit where he and “James” had hung out with Deanne the day before. RR claims that he came across Deanne’s coat containing her wallet (or at least whatever credit cards and ID she had taken with her when she left her purse and phone in her vehicle) and according to her brother Carson in the Vanished podcast, RR finds Deanne’s coat and shoes and he takes those, as well. RR claims that these items were in the approximate area where he and “James” had last seen Deanne. In an interview with RR in jail with local affiliate KHQ, RR allegedly claims that he disposed of Deanne’s coat and shoes and threw her ID out in downtown Spokane to make it appear that she had been somewhere other than the last place he and his associate James claim they saw Deanne near “the hill”. It should have been easy enough for police to locate the friend with the truck to corroborate the second version of RR coming to have the cards and also whether or not a PIN number was required in order to use the cards.
There is much speculation that because RR is the last reported person to have seen Deanne alive and because he lied at least once about how he obtained her credit cards, that he must be involved in Deanne’s disappearance. A criminal background check shows RR has a history of drug use and theft (but not robbery) in support his drug habit. RR’s only violent offenses are two domestic violence charges which sounds serious, except those appear to be tied to his loved ones’ intervening in his drug use. One of the charges involved a girlfriend and one from 2005 involved Randy’s own Mother, but this coincides with his use of drugs and drug convictions. As of the time Deanne went missing in 2015 when RR was being evicted from his apartment, apparently all was forgiven by Riley’s Mother because she was allowing him to move in with her while he got his feet back under him. That is where police located him living with a girlfriend when they sought him out for an interview regarding the use of Deanne’s credit cards. RR has never been charged with a forcible felony, nor any sex crime. Randy Riley seems to be just your average petty criminal. In his interview with Spokane detectives, RR comes off as not being kind of a dipshit and a weakling who probably sniffs paint, not a sophisticated criminal who anyone else would be willing to assist by loaning him their vehicle, let alone assisting him in disposing of a body. RR got around on a bicycle. If RR lied about how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, maybe it was just to avoid a robbery charge, which is a forcible felony and a very serious offense compared with anything on his previous record.
Maybe when RR went to go see whether Deanne was planning to come back out of the bushes and continue walking with him and James, he did tussle with her or otherwise removed the cards from Deanne's coat pocket. James maintains that he has no idea how RR came to have Deanne’s credit cards and he was never on video with RR using the cards, so however the theft and use of the cards came to have happened, it does not appear to be any conspiracy between RR and James.
What if Deanne did lose her coat in a struggle with someone else? Maybe someone who was known to be desperately looking for her all over town, who may have felt betrayed by Deanne falling off the wagon and staying out all night?
The Relationship Between Deanne Hastings and Mike Tibbetts
“Within a couple days of meeting her, I knew she was the one.” - Mike Tibbetts, ID Disappeared interview
Within a couple of days of meeting Deanne Hastings, Mike Tibbetts could not possibly have known what being in a committed, longterm relationship with her might entail. Mike Tibbetts was overwhelmed by Deanne’s beauty upon meeting her and he intended to possess her and be her answer to everything.
Mike continues:
“We got along great. I think we had one argument about wheat bread and white bread... which one to buy. I mean other than that we rarely ever fought.”
Mike is being disingenuous and attempting to seriously mislead us for his own purposes. Mike says he thinks (maybe) he and Deanne had “one” argument. So according to Mike’s information, he and Deanne had anywhere from zero to one argument, but if they did have one argument instead of zero, then Mike recalls that the subject matter of that argument was “about wheat bread and white bread… which one to buy.” To be clear, “rarely ever” fighting is not the same thing as maybe zero to one time arguing about purchasing bread. Mike is trying to convince us of a lie that he only needs to convince us of if he has other lies he needs to convince us of.
Amanda Ladd (Deanne’s longtime best friend) shared text messages with police that show Deanne had been telling her best friend for weeks that she wanted to leave Mike. In texts shown on the episode of the ID Disappeared episode, Deanne says she is “done” and that she believed Mike was drugging her. When confronted with this information, Mike then admits that in the weeks before her disappearance, Deanne was hearing voices and thought neighbors and an ex-boyfriend were breaking into their house, drugging the water supply and/or trying to kill her and she even accused Mike of being in on the conspiracy. Deanne does not mention the neighbors or an ex-boyfriend to Amanda Ladd, only Mike. None of what Mike ends up describing is within the realm of everything being “fine” prior to Deanne’s disappearance, anyway. Why didn’t Mike take Deanne to a hospital or at least make an appointment with her doctor if he believed she was hearing voices and accusing half the people in her life of conspiring against her instead of just him?
Deanne’s now daughter-in-law Melanie Green (DIL) states in her ID Disappeared interview that although she never witnessed any fights between Deanne and Mike, Deanne would regularly text message her DIL using a “girl code” they had about doing nails, for when she needed to talk about the relationship troubles with Mike that she was having. What were the nature of Deanne’s issues with Mike that she confided in her DIL about? Melanie Green never mentions wheat bread OR white bread.
Mike wants us to believe that even when Deanne went missing for 6 days in June and had to be reported missing to police by her son because no one including Mike had heard from her for days, that he and Deanne did not exchange any words of argument. Mike wants us to believe that when Deanne accused him of drugging her and even trying to kill her, that his and Deanne's conversation(s) about those issues were less dramatic than a conversation over whether to purchase wheat or white bread. Mike wants us to believe that even when he was able to confirm that Deanne had just spent the night with another man - who Mike says he does not believe was honest when he told Mike that he and Deanne had not "gotten together” - that Mike was going to be ok with that. An honest answer from Mike Tibbetts would have been that he and Deanne had many ups and downs in their short, whirlwind relationship due to Deanne’s ongoing issues with bipolar disorder, that they had been at odds many times before and that this “episode” could have very well ended their relationship had Deanne not gone permanently missing. Instead, Mike chooses to be completely dishonest and that is a huge red flag in a case like this.
Artist Michael Carini of San Diego, CA was a longtime friend of Deanne’s. On the previously linked webpage where he pays tribute to Deanne, he says she had recently contacted him and said that the relationship she was in with Mike was “unhealthy”:
“Shortly before her final disappearance in 2015, she contacted me and told me she had to get out of her current relationship because it was unhealthy. Deanne was known to tell stories and bend the truth, but I felt the sincerity in her voice. She had been clean and sober for a long time and really seemed to be turning her life around.”
January 2016
Randy Riley’s friend James who had walked with RR and Deanne on the day she disappeared and who was not charged with any crime related to her disappearance or the use of her cards, contacted Amanda Ladd via the Missing Deanne Facebook page to say that he wanted to speak with anyone who wanted to speak with him about Deanne and that he would tell them anything they wanted to know. He claims he does not know Randy very well and James stuck to his same story: Deanne went up the hill to relieve herself, Randy went to check on her for several minutes and then returned ALONE and the two men proceeded on their way. According to Deanne’s brother Carson’s account of the phone call, James tells Deanne’s brother words to the effect of “I can’t believe she didn’t make it home, she was so close to home, she was going to walk up the hill. I can’t believe she didn’t make it home.” James seemed genuinely desperate to reassure Deanne’s family that whatever happened to Deanne did in fact happen after he and Randy Riley left her on the hill near the home she shared with Mike Tibbetts.

2020.09.14 18:08 SherlockBeaver Disappeared: Deanne Hastings My Leading Theory

In more than 75% of homicides, the victim knows their killer; nearly 30% of homicide perpetrators are family members. Among women who are murdered, more than half are murdered by their intimate partner. The force of emotions that exist in familial and romantic relationships are the most powerful that people experience in their lifetimes. Even what appear to be the closest of marriages and the most respectable of families have been known to experience fatal violence going all the way back to Cain and Abel.
This review of Deanne Hasting’s case takes a very close look at the actions and words of Deanne’s fiancé at the time she disappeared. Hopefully another review of the timeline and supporting facts will help lead us to what happened to Deanne. I rely most heavily on the information provided in interviews with Deanne's closest relatives from the ID Disappeared program (Season 8, episode 13 “The Long Way Home”) and The Vanished Podcast Episode 44, because it is the information of those who knew Deanne best or were the closest to Deanne when she disappeared, in their own words that we can listen to for ourselves.
Background
Deanne Hastings (maiden name Crider) was born 2/27/1980 in Pahrump, Nevada. She was a thirty-five year-old mother of three at the time she disappeared from Spokane, Washington on November 4, 2015. Deanne has a history of bipolar disorder, going missing and even attempted suicide. This webpage offers some real insight into Deanne’s struggles as well as an honest and loving tribute from an artist who was Deanne’s longtime friend and more.
Just months before Deanne vanished this seemingly final time, she had been out of touch with all of her friends and family for 6 days. A mostly redacted copy of a June 12, 2015 police incident report I obtained that was initiated by Deanne's eldest son, Hayden states the following:
"Hayden Green called Crime Check on June 12, 2015 at 20:38 to report that he hasn't heard from his mom, Deanne Hastings (listed Deanne Crider), since 6/9/15. Hayden has checked with other friends and family and no one has heard from her, not even her live in boyfriend Mike Tibbetts."
That case was closed when Deanne returned home on June 15, 2015. Apparently no search was conducted, nor was any media attention brought to Deanne’s disappearance on that occasion. Why not? Mike Tibbetts was Deanne’s live-in boyfriend when she went missing in June but apparently Mike was not as concerned then as he was in November.
Deanne and Mike became engaged around two months following her return from that episode and around two months before she disappeared. Did this change in their relationship status affect Mike’s actions in November? In his ID Disappeared interview Mike Tibbetts says: “In her past she would leave for a couple days or different times like that. She would respond here and there to texts and stuff.” Mike has been through this with Deanne before. Does Mike know where Deanne went during the times she disappeared before? According to Deanne’s artist friend, many times she would run to him wherever he was living, or he would come to where she was and they would hide from the world in a hotel. Apparently some of the times like this time, Deanne wandered the streets and made friends with strangers.
This time something kept Deanne from ever coming back to the people who loved her. Deanne had a long history of disappearing and of “episodes” where her mother says in her ID Disappeared interview that she sometimes didn’t even recognize her own daughter and Deanne’s brother Carson also describes Deanne as being like a different person during those times, full of foul and hurtful language. Unfortunately, these episodes had been occurring since Deanne’s later teenage years regardless of being on or off of any medication. Like many sufferers of bipolar disorder, Deanne clearly had a difficult time getting the right dose or combination of medications.
Although her brother Carson and Mike Tibbets refer to “the insurance” and “the insurance company” in their ID Disappeared interviews, the fact is that Deanne was on Medicaid due to her low income and other factors. One of the “credit” cards a person of interest in this case, Randy Riley, was caught using of Deanne’s was not a credit card according to police, but rather her EBT (food stamp) card which he used at a WinCo grocery store. Perhaps they did not wish to cause shame to Deanne (the only shame is that Deanne was denied her medication), but Mike Tibbetts states in his interview on ID Disappeared that he had offered to pay cash for Deanne’s medication so that she could have the preferred one and Deanne was “told” [by her caseworker?] that if they did that, Deanne would be dropped from “insurance coverage”. No one is dropped from private insurance coverage for not using their benefits and paying cash instead. When you go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, you will be charged the full price in cash unless you present an insurance card and nobody cares because you’re paying to have the insurance benefit whether you use it or not and when you don’t use it, that is money the insurance company does not have to reimburse. It is Medicaid recipients who have to demonstrate financial need. Obviously, it is a terrible shame that anyone would deny Deanne the particular medication her physician thought she needed. It may help some people deflect their own guilt and responsibility to spread blame around or feel validated in making political hay of this case, but what is important is finding Deanne.
The Disappearance
Tuesday, November 3, 2015
Deanne attends her first day of cosmetology school at Glen Dow Academy just six blocks from where her vehicle will later be found. Deanne spent the latter part of her evening with her now daughter-in-law (DIL) Melanie Green doing her nails and discussing their relationships with the men in their lives, as they frequently did.
9:30 pm
Melanie Green (DIL) goes home after spending the evening with Deanne doing nails and talking about their relationships. Deanne responds to Melanie’s text sometime between 9:30-10:00 pm when Melanie arrived home. Deanne’s last message to DIL says “Love you see you soon”.
10:00 pm
Deanne’s last reported use of her cell phone is a text to her son Hayden telling him that she went to school that day and that she hopes he is proud of her.
10:00-10:15 pm?
Deanne possibly executes a plan to leave the home she shares with her fiancé Mike Tibbetts by distracting him with a handwritten note about going to the store while she made her way to a downtown nightclub. If true, then for reasons known only to her Deanne chose to execute this plan instead of waiting for Mike to return home just a few minutes later and invite him to go with her to the club, or to tell Mike the truth about where she was going.
10:15 -10:30 pm
Mike arrives home from work (he worked 12:00 pm -10:00 pm shifts) and claims he found a note from Deanne inside the home that according to Tibbetts’ words on the ID Disappeared episode said:
“…that she had a good day, and she was just, got done doing nails and she was going to run to the store.”
That is a lot of information in a handwritten note that really only needed to say "Ran to the store BRB”. If Deanne were actually running to the store and coming home, she could have told Mike about her day when she returned. If Deanne actually meant to let Mike know that she was at the store in case he found the house empty when he came home or he wanted anything from the store, she would have text him. Deanne had just been texting her DIL and son minutes before she allegedly picked up a pen and wrote a note for Mike Tibbetts that he has never allowed police to see. Mike maintains that the handwritten note is the last thing Deanne ever wrote to him and that is why he cannot part with it, even though he has known that the note was a complete lie by the 4th day that Deanne was missing at the latest. Mike’s refusal to ever turn over either the alleged note or Deanne’s cell phone in the early days and weeks of the investigation into her disappearance, Mike’s actions are not those of a man who really wants to find out what happened to Deanne. Mike’s memories of the note seem to vary slightly. In this interview published 9 days after Deanne went missing Mike says:
“There was a note that said ‘Ran to store, just got done doing girls nails, had a great day,’"
The article further states: “It’s easy to memorize a simple note, especially when it’s the last time you’ve heard from the one you love.” Except Mike doesn’t “memorize” Deanne’s note. He paraphrases it each time and by February 2016 Mike seems to be remembering the night Deanne left home differently than he reported to police:
“The last thing I heard come out of her mouth was I love you," he said. "She went to the store that night, and I haven't seen her since.”
No mention of any note. The note matters because if it ever existed, it would support Mike’s version of the evening: that nothing at all was amiss between himself and Deanne and that whatever happened to cause Deanne to leave the house that night had nothing to do with Mike because it happened before he got home.
11:30 pm Mike gets concerned that Deanne is not home from the store because it is five minutes away. This would be a market now called Rosauer's Market. Out of concern, Mike says he drove to that store. Mike reports that the store was closed, so he returns home. Why does he drive to the store instead of texting, then calling Deanne’s phone? Did Mike do those things first and then drive to the store? He does not report doing so. This is the nearest market to their house. Most people know what time the nearest market to their house closes. Did Mike really think he would find Deanne at the closed market, rather than assume she must be making a stop some place else by then that was open later? Deanne could have gone to a Walgreens that was open late, or been picking up fast food or a pizza. It is interesting that within an hour Mike is already out on the street looking for Deanne on this night.
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
2:30-3:00 am
Mike tracks Deanne’s phone to a parking lot at 919 Sprague in downtown Spokane which is next to The Knitting Factory, a music venue just six blocks from the cosmetology school Deanne attended the morning before. If Mike was able to trace Deanne’s phone using location services, then he also had access to and surely would have looked at her phone usage online to see who she was communicating with besides him before she left their house. Mike should have easily been able to see that there were texts to her son’s and his girlfriend’s numbers in the minutes before he came home. Nonetheless, Mike never actually contacts either one of them himself to ask what Deanne might have said about what she was planning to do that night.
Mike decides to wait by Deanne’s car for the rest of the night. This is an interesting choice considering that the temperature was below freezing that night. Deanne had not been robbed, because Mike found her purse and cell phone secured inside the car. It seems reasonable to assume that Deanne had gone to the club next door and left her purse in the car so she could dance. If Deanne had consumed alcohol, it would be reasonable for her to have gotten a ride home or taken a cab. Mike’s choices seem to prioritize seeing who Deanne might be with when she returned to her car. Mike has claimed that he stayed with Deanne’s car all night in the freezing cold because he wanted to make sure her car did not get broken into with her purse and phone inside. That sounds like a reasonable, too except that after this first night Mike does not call AAA for locksmith service and a tow home. Instead Mike leaves Deanne’s car parked in that same spot in downtown Spokane with her purse and phone inside for *four more nights* beginning on Wednesday.
Overnight
We now know that Deanne Hastings met a grocery store employee of what is now called Yoke's Fresh Market on Spokane-Cheney Road, (known as Latham Trading Company at the time) and that Deanne spent the night with that grocery store employee (GSE). According to the GSE’s information, he met Deanne in front of The Knitting Factory and they went off to party together for the night. In the morning the GSE took Deanne in his car to the grocery store where he worked to purchase cigarettes. The GSE says when he got back to his car, Deanne was gone but she had left her keys behind. He drove around the shopping center, did not see Deanne and left. Deanne was just two miles from home then and she would end up walking most of those two miles in the direction of her home later that afternoon.
7:30-8:00 am
Mike calls Glen Dow Academy to see whether Deanne has shown up for her second day of classes. Glen Dow Academy is located six blocks from where Deanne left her vehicle. Mike must have made quite an impression on whoever he spoke to on the phone about Deanne, because the school owner offered to start making missing person flyers right away instead of minding their own business over an adult staying out all night. Mike says he then began to distribute the missing person flyers all over downtown Spokane. Deanne had been missing less than twelve hours at that point.
Maybe it was reasonable for Mike to call Deanne’s new school and let the administrators know that she had been out all night because Mike was genuinely worried about Deanne’s well being. On the other hand, Mike does not say that he tried calling any hospitals or jails, he does not try going home to see whether or not Deanne has returned there and most importantly, Mike also *does not call* the last two people Deanne Hastings’ phone records would indicate she texted in the minutes before Mike arrived home to (allegedly) find a handwritten note from Deanne about going to the store.
Mike does not go to work during the first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance. That is how alarmed he is by her being gone overnight this time. It is not clear how Mike accounts for his time and whereabouts during those first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance other than that he alternately went around the city with missing person flyers, waited at her car and drove the streets looking for Deanne. Every day after Wednesday Mike does go to work.
12:23 pm
Officer Davida Zinkgraf responds to numerous calls for a welfare check requested by strangers in the shopping center parking lot of what is now Yoke’s Fresh Market. These witnesses reported a disoriented and possibly intoxicated/addled woman who had entered a salon and called a woman working there “Mommy", who was now laying on the ground and claiming to witnesses that she may have been drugged, kidnapped and beaten. Deanne would not speak to EMTs or police when they arrived, nor would she give anyone her name or say where she lived although she did tell the ladies attempting to intervene on her behalf that she did not want to go home. When Deanne will not repeat any of the claims about being drugged or beaten to police, does not appear beaten, *refuses to give her name* and then walks away from Officer Zinkgraf, Officer Zinkgraf continues to observe Deanne for another 20 minutes and then reluctantly leaves. Deanne has civil rights and Officer Zinkgraf has an entire city to look after. Deanne is not required to identify herself to police when she is not suspected of any crime. Police cannot detain Deanne for telling wild stories to strangers, nor apparently even for public intoxication because as Officer Zinkgraf explains in the ID Disappeared episode, Spokane does not have a law prohibiting public intoxication. There is also no law in Washington that allows authorities to remand citizens for psychiatric evaluation because of statements by strangers. Civil commitment requires family members to swear out an affidavit that they have observed their family member being a threat to themselves or others. Yes, it is tragically unfortunate that Deanne could not be intervened upon by police and EMT services on the day she disappeared, but hopefully everyone can stop asking how they could have just let Deanne be on her way, because that question has been asked and answered.
12:30 pm
In Officer Zingkraf’s continued observation of Deanne after their initial contact, Deanne enters the grocery store where she uses her debit card to purchase: energy drinks, string cheese, birthday candles, cigarettes and vodka. Mike, who has been out distributing missing person flyers and/or waiting by Deanne’s car, says that he received an alert on his phone that Deanne’s card was used at the grocery store where the GSE works. Did Mike have alerts set on the card for every transaction Deanne made like parents do when they give their teenager a credit card? Mike takes the alert not as notice of potential theft following a crime against Deanne, but as confirmation that Deanne is well and making a purchase. This is why Mike does not rush to the store, he isn’t actually concerned about Deanne’s safety or what has happened to her. He means to see who she is with and confront her. That is why even though Mike apparently believes that Deanne is well and making a purchase, instead of going home he decides to return to/continue to stay with with Deanne’s car. Mike says he believed Deanne would come back to her vehicle and his priority isn’t to get warm or get some sleep, it’s still to see who Deanne is with and confront her. Mike was not going to wait for Deanne to get home.
Sometime after 12:30 pm
Deanne encounters Randy Riley (RR) and his friend “James” on their way to a storage unit RR has rented that is within two blocks of the grocery store where Deanne has just made her purchases. According to both RR and James they hung out with Deanne for a few hours. Storage facility surveillance shows the three of them smiling and interacting in a very friendly manner. The two men are on bicycles. Neither of the men appears to have access to any vehicles of their own with which to move personal belongings, let alone a body (Deanne’s brother Carson confirms this in the Vanished podcast) and none of the trio seem to make any effort to make use of Deanne’s vehicle.
1:30 pm
Storage surveillance shows Randy Riley and Deanne and James leaving the storage facility.
2:30 pm
(information received by police November 25, 2015 three weeks after Deanne disappears and after Randy Riley’s name was released to the media) RR’s landlord who was in the process of evicting him now claims that she remembers seeing Deanne with RR and another man on Wednesday, November 4th near where he claims that he left her and that Deanne was sitting or lying on the ground again.
Another woman who lived near Inland Empire Way believes that she saw Deanne walking with RR and James on I.E. Way and lying on the ground on that day, as well. That witness claims that she was concerned enough to stop and ask Deanne if she was ok, since she was lying on the ground. Deanne told this witness that she was just upset because she was “going through a divorce” and she seemed in control enough of herself that this neighbor moved on. RR does not deny that he was with Deanne on the last day she was seen nor does he deny that he is the last person willing to admit to having seen her.
2:30-4:00 pm
A few hours after Mike learns Deanne used her card at the grocery store, he finally decides to leave Deanne's car downtown and go to that store with Deanne's missing person flyers in hand. There Mike has his first encounter with the GSE in the parking lot outside of the store. The GSE says Deanne looks familiar, but that it's probably not the same girl. It is possible Deanne did not look exactly like her photos on the night she left home because she was disheveled, but it is also possible that the GSE did not want to immediately admit to a frantic man with a missing person flyer of his fiancée who did not appear missing when he spent the night with her. The GSE may have been wary - for good reason - of becoming involved in what appeared to be a domestic situation.
Mike enters the grocery store and asks another store employee if he would be able to look at store surveillance and according to Mike in his Disappeared interview:
“...she said I had to wait and speak with the manager there, so I called the next day (Thursday) and he said I could come in that Saturday and look through it.”
Mike does not report taking the missing person flyers to the surrounding businesses in the shopping center where the grocery store was located, but maybe he did. It would have made sense for him to do so, since he claims he was papering downtown Spokane with the flyers and the shopping center was now Deanne’s most likely last known location. If Mike had contacted the surrounding businesses to leave flyers, he would have been told about Deanne being at the salon calling people “Mommy” and that police and EMTs had been dispatched for the woman on his flyer. Mike would have been told that Deanne was alone and on foot. He would have immediately searched the surrounding neighborhood for Deanne.
At this point on Wednesday afternoon after 2:30 pm Mike puts himself at the grocery store where Deanne made her last purchases. He is less than two miles from where Randy Riley and James claim to have parted ways with Deanne and approximately 1000ft from his home with Deanne. A Google maps search shows that there are very few streets in that area.
The time period from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday deserves a microscope on it, because this is when Deanne actually goes missing. There is one person who according to his own information was devoting himself to nothing else except tracking down Deanne Hastings during that time period and that person is Mike Tibbetts.
Thursday, November 5, 2015
Mike finally reports Deanne missing to police on Thursday morning. He then calls the manager of the grocery store where Deanne’s debit card was last used. In the ID Disappeared episode Mike calmly tells us that the grocery store manager told him over the phone on Thursday that he could come in two days later to look through the video. Mike presses neither the manager of the store nor police to review the video surveillance immediately that would either confirm Deanne was using her own debit card, or point to a suspect in her disappearance. There is apparently none of the urgency that Mike felt when contacting Deanne’s school the morning before. Although he has allegedly been putting up missing person flyers all over town since the day before, Mike now seems to easily accept that no one will review the surveillance video until Saturday and he returns to work. Mike has still not called the last two people Deanne’s phone sent and received texts from: Deanne’s son and her DIL, nor does he call Deanne’s mother who lives only an hour away with Deanne’s two younger children to ask whether she has heard from Deanne. Instead, Mike goes to the media for help in *promoting* Deanne's disappearance. Deanne’s mother had to learn that her daughter was missing from Deanne’s brother who lived in Texas, who had to learn that his sister was missing when he was called by a friend in Spokane who saw the news report on tv. That makes no sense if Mike was genuinely concerned with locating Deanne on Wednesday and Thursday. Mike tells interviewers that he didn’t wish to alarm Deanne’s family. That makes no sense when he is attempting to locate Deanne by all of these other alarming means. When Deanne was out of touch with all her friends and family including Mike Tibbetts for what turned out to be 6 days in June according to the above-referenced police incident report, Mike Tibbetts never did report Deanne missing (nor did he launch a frantic search and contact the media), her son did and Deanne's teenaged son Hayden had the sense to contact friends and family before he made such a report to police.
Saturday, November 7, 2015
Mike is able to view the surveillance video at the grocery store where Deanne made her purchases. She is alone on video, but clearly disoriented as other witnesses described. Mike does not request police to accompany him to view or take control of a copy of the video.
Sunday, November 8, 2015
6:00 am
Mike gets a call from the GSE who has been following media coverage of Deanne’s disappearance. The GSE now says he thinks Deanne is a girl he spent the night with on Tuesday/Wednesday and he agrees to meet with Mike to answer more questions.
10:30-11:00 am
The GSE meets with Mike and gives him Deanne's keys. Now Mike says he is finally able to retrieve Deanne’s phone and move her vehicle from the parking lot in downtown Spokane. Mike has made no effort in four days’ time to contact AAA or any other method of locksmith/tow service to secure and remove Deanne’s belongings or vehicle from the parking lot where she left it the night she left home. Again, this is telling since Mike originally felt that securing Deanne’s vehicle required him to stay with the vehicle all night in freezing temperatures.
In his ID Disappeared appearance Mike says of his meeting with the Grocery Store Employee:
“He was very not impressive at all.”
It’s hard to imagine in what way the Grocery Store Employee could have been impressive in this case. What sort of a presentation was Mike expecting the GSE to wow him with? Two years after the fact, Mike still shows seething jealousy/disgust on camera that Deanne went home with this... grocery store employee she met on the street outside of a nightclub, when he was prepared to make her his wife. In his ID Disappeared interview Mike says:
“Obviously I asked him if he had gotten together with her or anything like that. He said that he didn’t, that he had a girlfriend and all those things. I just didn’t believe him. He just didn’t, I don’t know. Just something about him.”
Mike seems like his skin is crawling thinking about his fiancée with this man. Who could blame him?
Sometime after 5:00 pm
Mike raises some sort of mini-posse consisting of a couple of friends and they go to the GSE’s house pretending in super-dramatic fashion like he was going to force his way in if he had to, without the police. The GSE cooperates with Mike and no sign of Deanne is found.
December 10, 2015
Randy Riley (RR) is arrested for identity theft. RR admits to using Deanne’s credit/debit cards. RR first states that Deanne gave him the cards to get something to eat. According to RR’s second version of how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, on November 5, 2015, he was in a truck belonging to a friend who was helping him move belongings from a nearby the apartment from whence RR was being evicted, to his nearby storage unit where he and “James” had hung out with Deanne the day before. RR claims that he came across Deanne’s coat containing her wallet (or at least whatever credit cards and ID she had taken with her when she left her purse and phone in her vehicle) and according to her brother Carson in the Vanished podcast, RR finds Deanne’s coat and shoes and he takes those, as well. RR claims that these items were in the approximate area where he and “James” had last seen Deanne. In an interview with RR in jail with local affiliate KHQ, RR allegedly claims that he disposed of Deanne’s coat and shoes and threw her ID out in downtown Spokane to make it appear that she had been somewhere other than the last place he and his associate James claim they saw Deanne near “the hill”. It should have been easy enough for police to locate the friend with the truck to corroborate the second version of RR coming to have the cards and also whether or not a PIN number was required in order to use the cards.
There is much speculation that because RR is the last reported person to have seen Deanne alive and because he lied at least once about how he obtained her credit cards, that he must be involved in Deanne’s disappearance. A criminal background check shows RR has a history of drug use and theft (but not robbery) in support his drug habit. RR’s only violent offenses are two domestic violence charges which sounds serious, except those appear to be tied to his loved ones’ intervening in his drug use. One of the charges involved a girlfriend and one from 2005 involved Randy’s own Mother, but this coincides with his use of drugs and drug convictions. As of the time Deanne went missing in 2015 when RR was being evicted from his apartment, apparently all was forgiven by Riley’s Mother because she was allowing him to move in with her while he got his feet back under him. That is where police located him living with a girlfriend when they sought him out for an interview regarding the use of Deanne’s credit cards. RR has never been charged with a forcible felony, nor any sex crime. Randy Riley seems to be just your average petty criminal. In his interview with Spokane detectives, RR comes off as not being kind of a dipshit and a weakling who probably sniffs paint, not a sophisticated criminal who anyone else would be willing to assist by loaning him their vehicle, let alone assisting him in disposing of a body. RR got around on a bicycle. If RR lied about how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, maybe it was just to avoid a robbery charge, which is a forcible felony and a very serious offense compared with anything on his previous record.
Maybe when RR went to go see whether Deanne was planning to come back out of the bushes and continue walking with him and James, he did tussle with her or otherwise removed the cards from Deanne's coat pocket. James maintains that he has no idea how RR came to have Deanne’s credit cards and he was never on video with RR using the cards, so however the theft and use of the cards came to have happened, it does not appear to be any conspiracy between RR and James.
What if Deanne did lose her coat in a struggle with someone else? Maybe someone who was known to be desperately looking for her all over town, who may have felt betrayed by Deanne falling off the wagon and staying out all night?
The Relationship Between Deanne Hastings and Mike Tibbetts
“Within a couple days of meeting her, I knew she was the one.” - Mike Tibbetts, ID Disappeared interview
Within a couple of days of meeting Deanne Hastings, Mike Tibbetts could not possibly have known what being in a committed, longterm relationship with her might entail. Mike Tibbetts was overwhelmed by Deanne’s beauty upon meeting her and he intended to possess her and be her answer to everything.
Mike continues:
“We got along great. I think we had one argument about wheat bread and white bread... which one to buy. I mean other than that we rarely ever fought.”
Mike is being disingenuous and attempting to seriously mislead us for his own purposes. Mike says he thinks (maybe) he and Deanne had “one” argument. So according to Mike’s information, he and Deanne had anywhere from zero to one argument, but if they did have one argument instead of zero, then Mike recalls that the subject matter of that argument was “about wheat bread and white bread… which one to buy.” To be clear, “rarely ever” fighting is not the same thing as maybe zero to one time arguing about purchasing bread. Mike is trying to convince us of a lie that he only needs to convince us of if he has other lies he needs to convince us of.
Amanda Ladd (Deanne’s longtime best friend) shared text messages with police that show Deanne had been telling her best friend for weeks that she wanted to leave Mike. In texts shown on the episode of the ID Disappeared episode, Deanne says she is “done” and that she believed Mike was drugging her. When confronted with this information, Mike then admits that in the weeks before her disappearance, Deanne was hearing voices and thought neighbors and an ex-boyfriend were breaking into their house, drugging the water supply and/or trying to kill her and she even accused Mike of being in on the conspiracy. Deanne does not mention the neighbors or an ex-boyfriend to Amanda Ladd, only Mike. None of what Mike ends up describing is within the realm of everything being “fine” prior to Deanne’s disappearance, anyway. Why didn’t Mike take Deanne to a hospital or at least make an appointment with her doctor if he believed she was hearing voices and accusing half the people in her life of conspiring against her instead of just him?
Deanne’s now daughter-in-law Melanie Green (DIL) states in her ID Disappeared interview that although she never witnessed any fights between Deanne and Mike, Deanne would regularly text message her DIL using a “girl code” they had about doing nails, for when she needed to talk about the relationship troubles with Mike that she was having. What were the nature of Deanne’s issues with Mike that she confided in her DIL about? Melanie Green never mentions wheat bread OR white bread.
Mike wants us to believe that even when Deanne went missing for 6 days in June and had to be reported missing to police by her son because no one including Mike had heard from her for days, that he and Deanne did not exchange any words of argument. Mike wants us to believe that when Deanne accused him of drugging her and even trying to kill her, that his and Deanne's conversation(s) about those issues were less dramatic than a conversation over whether to purchase wheat or white bread. Mike wants us to believe that even when he was able to confirm that Deanne had just spent the night with another man - who Mike says he does not believe was honest when he told Mike that he and Deanne had not "gotten together” - that Mike was going to be ok with that. An honest answer from Mike Tibbetts would have been that he and Deanne had many ups and downs in their short, whirlwind relationship due to Deanne’s ongoing issues with bipolar disorder, that they had been at odds many times before and that this “episode” could have very well ended their relationship had Deanne not gone permanently missing. Instead, Mike chooses to be completely dishonest and that is a huge red flag in a case like this.
Artist Michael Carini of San Diego, CA was a longtime friend of Deanne’s. On the previously linked webpage where he pays tribute to Deanne, he says she had recently contacted him and said that the relationship she was in with Mike was “unhealthy”:
“Shortly before her final disappearance in 2015, she contacted me and told me she had to get out of her current relationship because it was unhealthy. Deanne was known to tell stories and bend the truth, but I felt the sincerity in her voice. She had been clean and sober for a long time and really seemed to be turning her life around.”
January 2016
Randy Riley’s friend James who had walked with RR and Deanne on the day she disappeared and who was not charged with any crime related to her disappearance or the use of her cards, contacted Amanda Ladd via the Missing Deanne Facebook page to say that he wanted to speak with anyone who wanted to speak with him about Deanne and that he would tell them anything they wanted to know. He claims he does not know Randy very well and James stuck to his same story: Deanne went up the hill to relieve herself, Randy went to check on her for several minutes and then returned ALONE and the two men proceeded on their way. According to Deanne’s brother Carson’s account of the phone call, James tells Deanne’s brother words to the effect of “I can’t believe she didn’t make it home, she was so close to home, she was going to walk up the hill. I can’t believe she didn’t make it home.” James seemed genuinely desperate to reassure Deanne’s family that whatever happened to Deanne did in fact happen after he and Randy Riley left her on the hill near the home she shared with Mike Tibbetts.

2020.08.21 21:00 portlane Frederick Horstkotte (April 18, 1923 - Aug. 15, 2020)

Frederick William 'Brud' Horstkotte
April 18, 1923 - Aug. 15, 2020
Fredrick William Horstkotte Jr. was born in Spokane, Wash., to Frederick W. Horstkotte Sr. and Esther Moore Horstkotte. Fred passed away rather suddenly at home the morning of Aug. 15, 2020. Fred lived in Portland for 97 years, 64 of those with his wonderful wife, Joan. His constant positive attitude and passion for his work, friends and active sports defined his life.
Fred moved to Portland at age 1 and grew up in the Irvington neighborhood attending Madeline Grade School and Grant High School where he proudly served as Fire Marshall. His older sisters, Esther and Mary kept a close eye on their younger brother, but Mary had trouble pronouncing "brother," it came out "brudder." The nickname Brud stuck. His education at MIT was interrupted by his service in the Army 13th Airborne Division. Spending VE day in Paris with his brother-in-law, Carl Jantzen was quite memorable.
Upon graduating from MIT he served as Clerk-of-the-Works for the expansion of the Oregon Lumber Company mill at Dee, Ore., in the Hood River Valley. He soon went to work with his father, Fred Sr. at F. W. Horstkotte and Associates where he spent the next 63 years designing sawmills and plywood plants from the same office in the American Bank Building. Fred was incredibly dedicated to his clients, many of whom became lifelong friends. These included SDS Lumber Co, Brooks Scanlon, Ochoco & Malhuer Lumber Companies, Willamette Industries, Collins Pine and many others.
His mother was a great proponent of active sports and made sure Fred and his sisters were busy year-round. Early years were spent skiing on Mt. Hood and Fred joined the Multnomah Athletic Club Ski Team as an Athletic Member and later won the Oregon High School Ski Championship for Grant. Later, weekly MAC handball games and tennis kept him busy. Seeking virgin corduroy until he was 87, he cherished his time skiing Mt. Hood, Mt. Bachelor and Sun Valley with his buddies and especially his two granddaughters.
After a five-year courtship, he married the former Joan Preble in 1955 who steered the home life with a steady hand while coordinating their many adventures, later traveling extensively with family and friends. Fred considered himself incredibly lucky to have such a caring and capable partner. His positive attitude was perhaps best displayed after a home-cooked meal when he would regularly declare, "That was the best meal I ever had!"
Fred and Joan had two children, David and Nancy. Tragically, Nancy died far too young at age 26. Fred was also predeceased by his sisters, Esther Jantzen Moore and Mary Horstkotte. In addition to his wife Joan, he is survived by David and his wife Joyce Wooding and his two granddaughters, Dena and Tate Horstkotte.
A funeral has been held and a memorial will be announced at a later date. Remembrances may be made to the Multnomah Athletic Foundation (multnomahathleticfoundation.com) or a charity of your choice.

2020.06.30 17:26 DukeDKraft The Institute Director - Chapters One through Six (Pages 1 - 30)

Chapter One
Tuesday, July 16th, 2019
In a warehouse parking lot near Walter Reed Medical Center, the Mormon institute director fumbled with the cellophaned pack, retrieving and lighting his first cigarette in thirty-eight years. He barely inhaled as he smoked it through, surprised how familiar it was to his senses. The ash glowed orange and the smoke spun his head as it wafted out the car’s open windows. He looked at his hands as he lit his second, wondering if the small tremors were from the fresh nicotine, the high stakes of the day or another dose of guilt settling into his bones.
Ben Samuels remembered he’d scarcely heard his alarm go off that morning, as he’d been up and dressed. His wife had hit snooze and returned to her sleep. She didn’t think to check on him, nor make an effort to rise. Would Marge have done different had she known what was happening? Maybe, maybe not -- she’d become so distant over the past months.
He stared down at his cigarette.
I bet she’d notice this.
.....
That morning alarm rang as Ben stood with a vacant gaze out his kitchen window, oatmeal bubbling on the stove. Dawn’s light gathered across the plain backyard, the sky clear and the grass begging a mow -- the start of a hot July day in Morgantown, West Virginia. Oats done, he grabbed milk from the fridge and made his way to the table, wholly uninterested in the meal.
He pushed aside his old high school yearbook and opened his laptop, commencing a read-through of his regular websites as he ate -- the Mormon Newsroom, USA Today, Consumer Reports and Amazon, the last to check on a backordered hedge trimmer blade. Only then did he reluctantly click onto the front page of the local paper. He finished his breakfast as he re-read the article detailing John Southland’s bike accident. Though it failed to identify him by his correct name, Ben knew it was his old college roommate under the police blanket in the photos.
He sighed and picked up his yearbook for the third time since learning of John’s death, or John’s murder or whatever it had been. Rogers High School, Spokane, Washington. Class of 1979. Page forty-four, Samuels before Southland, both their senior pictures on the same tuxedoed page. He ran his finger along a faded ballpoint line drawn circuitous between the two of them, “Race On!” written in the margin. Forty years and now a funeral instead of a class reunion, not that John would have attended anyway.
Should he call the authorities? Wake up Marge and tell her everything? His main thought was to do nothing. The paper showed the situation in-hand and it was really none of his business. But Ben couldn’t shake the dread that had gripped him during John’s surprise visit the week before.
He looked around his quiet kitchen half-expecting a calamity to break out. Nothing out of order besides the squeak of the air conditioner, he took a bright yellow USB thumb drive from his pocket and inserted it into his computer. He keyed down and opened the lone video file, still amazed at John’s resolve. There it was -- a silent and grainy footage, a prisoner restrained and bleeding at the end of a penitentiary hallway. Two men exiting the frame, the bald one halfway out and unrecognizable, the other tall and in view. The tall man turning back. Ben winced as the man pulled out what must have been a syringe full of something evil and plunged it into the prisoner’s neck. The prisoner struggled, then slumped at his feet. Ben scooted his chair close and watched again -- starting, stopping, reversing and witnessing once more. It was the most horrible thing he’d ever seen. But had John been correct?
He looked up at Marge’s knick-knacks on the plaster wall. Staring back was a kitschy cross-stitch their oldest daughter had finished fifteen years prior. It read ‘Just Do It,’ the famous quote from both the Mormon prophet Spencer Kimball and a certain Oregon shoe company.
John Southland had been so convinced and so desperate for help. Ben had heard him out in his institute office but done nothing. Now he was dead, like he’d predicted, and Ben had his evidence.
Just Do It.
He turned and rummaged through a worn-out credenza drawer, finding a red envelope. He grabbed a half-sheet of paper, searched for a location on his web browser, wrote his note and sealed it up. A final glance at the cross-stitch and the decision was made. Ben quietly put his dishes in the sink and hurried to his car, an uneasy three-hour drive to Washington, DC ahead of him.
 
Chapter Two
Two Weeks Prior
The only thing interesting about the old split-level colonial atop North Tremont Avenue was its view toward Greensburg’s historic beaux-arts courthouse. The county kept it lit at night and John Southland had come to appreciate its ostentatious dome. He gazed at it most evenings with cold beer in hand, sitting on the concrete steps outside the postwar brick and clapboard home.
The panorama was between telephone wires and across a wide working-class valley, the house on the wrong side of the tracks and long-ago apportioned into three separate apartments to maximize revenue. John had been given the walkup on the main floor -- a creaky sitting room in front of a Formica kitchen with two worn-out bedrooms down a hall. Beneath him was a small basement unit, the third apartment accessed from the blacktop alley around the back.
For most, it would be a dilapidated and bleak place to live. For John, it was a mansion. He reveled in the freedom and the space, twenty years of incarceration fresh in his rearview mirror. The small pleasure of a beer with a view seemed almost magical from day one.
He hadn’t met many neighbors yet. There’d been an occasional ‘Hello, I’m Jimmy Montano,’ but John had remained quiet, taking to heart his WITSEC Inspector’s advice to start slow with the introductions. He filled his plate instead with his new job and all the rules and regulations that came with being a parolee within the U.S. Marshals Service Witness Protection Program. The secret he held also made him careful, a ticking bomb tucked an inch below his veneer.
There’d been only one purchase beyond the necessities, an old Bianchi Celeste from a pawnshop owner who had little concept of its worth. They agreed on a hundred dollars and soon the mint green racer was performing like a European custom. John set out to regain his pre-prison cycling form, spending his evenings and off-days riding the hills of Pennsylvania’s Westmoreland County. He was careful to not cross the government line as WITSEC rules didn’t allow such excursions for at least six months.
His other pastime was more critical -- finding Ben Samuels. Early attempts had been fruitless. His old friend’s name was nowhere to be found on the Mormon Church’s voluminous website. John checked multiple times, waiting over a month before calling the 800 number in Salt Lake City, not wanting one shred of connection to the threat that beset him. Out of options, he used the counter phone at the downtown library after a final attempt searching the site.
“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, how may I help you?”
“I’m trying to get in touch with one of your employees. A man who works for your church.”
“Name please.”
“Ben Samuels.”
“Which department?”
“No idea. Sorry.”
“Just a moment.”
The woman was quickly back on the line. “Yes, I found him. He works for the CES.”
“CES?”
“Church Educational System. I’ll transfer you.”
The phone clicked and another woman picked up the call. “CES, how may I help you?”
“Ben Samuels, please.”
“Who?”
“I’d like to speak with Ben Samuels.”
“…May I ask who you’re with?”
“No one, ma’am. I’m just trying to reach him.”
“He no longer works here, in our offices.”
“Can you transfer me to his location?”
“Please hold a moment.”
“I’m an old friend of his.”
“Yes sir. Please hold.”
The line switched and John found himself listening to what he recognized as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It was thirty seconds before someone came back on.
“This is Associate Director Oscar Trejo, may I ask who’s calling?”
The authority in the man’s voice made John want to hang up. “…James. James Montano. I’m trying to reach Ben Samuels.”
“I see. Well, I can tell you he’s no longer here.”
“Does he still work for your church?”
“For the time being. He’s out east, in West Virginia.”
John stood up straight. Ben was nearby. “Do you have a number?”
“I must ask, are you with the press?”
“The press? You mean like a reporter?”
“Yes sir.”
“No, nothing like that. Just a friend.”
John held his breath. The administrator paused, then relented. “…OK, I’ll take you at your word. I’ll give you back to my secretary and she can provide the phone number to the Morgantown Institute.”
John didn’t wait, hanging up as the Tabernacle Choir started a new hymn. He walked back to his allotted computer terminal and keyed in “Mormon Institute, Morgantown West Virginia.” The screen refreshed and the location came up. It was no more than an hour away.
The proximity and the urgency of the story he needed to share made the trip too tempting, WITSEC rules be damned. He bummed a ride from a co-worker as soon as he could. They left early and were back in Greensburg by noon, John sullen and quiet on the way home.
He’d tried his best to convince Ben in his office, but it didn’t seem his former soigneur was going to help. It left John only one option. He called his WITSEC inspector and made an appointment to share what he knew. At least the video on the remaining USB thumb drive was in good condition. He’d become adept at hiding it, choosing a space under a loose floorboard the day he arrived.
He was anxious the night before the meeting. The last thing he wanted was to be hurled back into prison on some sort of technicality. He tossed and turned until settling into a deep sleep after 2am, oblivious to the quiet crunch of a C-rake lock pick and the turn of his front door knob.
.....
John woke to the barrel of a Glock pistol shoved against his shoulder, the beam of a flashlight dancing across the bed.
“Wake up.”
John rolled over. The handgun and nine hundred lumens flashed in his eyes. “What’s going on?”
“Get dressed. You’re going for a ride.”
“What? Turn that light off.”
“Get up. That’s the last time I’m going to tell you.”
John scooted to the edge of the bed. “Who are you?”
“A friend or a nightmare. Your decision. Like I said, it’s time for a ride. Put on your bike gear.”
John’s head cleared. He stood and didn’t ask any more questions -- the intruder wasn’t playing a game. He went to the dresser and pulled on his lone pair of bike shorts, then picked up his socks and cycling shoes.
The man tossed him a T-shirt hanging from a chair. “Slow and steady. Head out the front door.”
A panel van waited outside. Its cargo door was open and a driver sat behind a tinted window. John’s Bianchi was already stowed in the back. He got in and sat beside it while the man with the gun jumped in after him and slid the door shut. The van pulled away from the curb, the Glock held steady toward John’s chest.
John didn’t understand. Why the bike? If they were going to kill him, they’d have shot him in bed. Did they know about the video?
“Where are we going?”
The man wagged his gun. “Shut up. Just sit there.”
Maybe it was something else? Someone he’d testified against returning to settle a score? A midnight visit from one of the cartels? There were too many enemies to keep straight and it would do no good to ask. He went quiet, focusing his eyes beyond his captor, out the back windows.
He could tell by the streetlights and the storefronts they were headed south on State Highway 119 over I-70 toward Uniontown, and that they turned east on Pechin Parkway after the county fairgrounds. Even in the dark it was easy to track the route. He’d ridden it several times over the six weeks he’d lived in Greensburg.
A mile further and the van came to a stop in front of a deserted cement plant. The driver got out and walked away. In the distance, John heard a chain rattle and a gate swing open. There was a whistle back toward the van.
The man with the gun turned on his flashlight and slid open the door. “Put on your shoes.”
John did as he was told and followed him outside.
“Forgetting something?”
“What?”
“Your bike. You can ride home from here.”
A car’s headlights appeared around the bend as John stepped back to the van. The car slowed as it passed and the man lowered his gun. John thought to jump into the road, but it went by before he had the chance.
The man was undeterred. “Get your bike and ride.”
John pulled the Bianchi forward and onto the ground. He spun it around and climbed on. The man turned off his flashlight and stepped close, the scene illuminated only by the van’s taillights. John noticed his captor was at least four inches shorter than himself.
“One more thing.”
The man leaned in and thrust a five-inch tactical knife through John’s right side, even with his stomach. It penetrated his abdomen, slicing his liver, spleen and tearing through his intestines. John screamed and collapsed to his handlebars, the knife held hard inside him, the pain both sharp and dull. The man wrapped his other arm around John’s back and held him steady.
John gasped, his gut burning and blood starting to spill. “Why?” The man yanked the knife out and dropped it to the ground. He grabbed his gun and pressed it to the back of John’s skull. “Justice for the people you murdered. Now ride home. If you make it, you’ll live.”
John didn’t move, blood flowing down his side. He tried to speak but fluid pooled in his throat.
The man gave him a shove. “Ride!”
There was nothing left to do. John pushed off and clicked into his pedals, his right hand pressing his wound and tears streaming down his face. The Glock followed his every move.
Fifty yards, one hundred yards and forward. John was delirious and confused with only his God-given talent keeping him upright. He thought of Greensburg, his new home. The stone steps, the beer. His new job, his new life. There was no way he’d make it. A cry for help on the main road was his only hope. But there had to be separation. He had to get away. He ignored the wound and tried to stand from his saddle, pouring what little he had left into the bike.
He’d made it almost a half mile before he sensed headlights gaining on him, the whine of a powerful engine closing in. John tried to swerve, but the blood loss caused his reactions to slow. The empty cement truck hit him square at forty miles an hour, its barrel spinning as the undercarriage bounced over him like an animal in the roadway. John’s last thought was of his old college roommate, a final prayer sent skyward that Ben Samuels would do the right thing.
 
Chapter Three
Tuesday, July 16th
The courier service delivered the red envelope to the front security desk of the Robert F. Kennedy Justice Building during the lunch hour. It was examined and time-stamped by the Mail Services Risk Assessment Team and hand-delivered to Susan Rivas, the United States Solicitor General’s Confidential Secretary. The unusual color caught her attention. She found it odd, a short note marked “For the immediate eyes of the United States Solicitor General only,” with no return address. Deciding it was warranted and straightening her skirt, Susan took it through the whitewood archway into the solicitor’s office.
She found Walter Peterson alone and busy, three hours into a session of summer prep for the upcoming autumn Supreme Court term. He’d finished the lunch she’d brought him from the executive dining room and there’d been no other interruptions since the morning’s staff meeting. He glanced up as she passed the flag array by the chesterfield sofas, coming forward to his desk. Handed the envelope, he emptied it and read the half-sheet scrap inside.
“I am an LDS Institute Director. I know what you are doing. Meet tonight at 10pm, 5300 West Cedar, Bethesda, Maryland.”
Susan stood silent, watching him turn it over and look back at the envelope. He found a similar result -- there was nothing indicating authorship outside shaky penmanship. He looked at her and again at the letter. “Who delivered this?”
“Mail Services brought it to my desk. Any idea what it’s about?”
“No.”
“Anything you’d have me do?”
“…Nothing. I’ll check it through Chris later.”
“Are you sure? I could have him come over, maybe the FBI as well?”
“I’ll take care of it.”
Susan was used to the abruptness. She knew to be on her toes around the solicitor. “Alright. Anything else for me?”
Peterson re-read the short message and then laid it down. “Has SCOTUS gotten back about October’s schedule? Everyone was concerned this morning. The session is still three months away, but it’s normal to have a draft docket by now.”
Susan shook her head. The Supreme Court’s administrative officer had told her it would be several more days. Peterson grunted and adjusted his reading glasses. “What about the Penitentiary Commission? I’ve made a couple site visits as the attorney general requested. If I’m going again it needs to be soon, before we ramp to full speed for the fall.”
“I’ll check that for you. The calendar has a Commission meeting next week. You know, the AG isn’t expecting you to attend everything as you’re doing this ad hoc.”
“All hands on deck, Susan. Besides, it gets me out and around the country. Boots on the ground, so to speak.”
“Yes sir.”
He nodded and returned to his files.
Susan had to hide a half-grin as she walked away. The idea of her venerable Mormon boss a ‘boots on the ground’ anything was farcical. Bald, obese and unfit for any activity requiring sturdy shoes, she’d never met a man more behind the desk, blue blood and patrician. A woman on her block was LDS and Susan knew her to be the sweetest neighbor around. She couldn’t imagine Peterson neighbor to anyone.
She glanced back from the doorway. Peterson had picked up the phone and was starting a call, the anonymous note in his hand. Susan turned to her workstation and watched the PBX screen. Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Powers’ line went active five seconds later.
 
Chapter Four
Ben found more time on his hands than he’d anticipated after watching the courier deliver his note. He drove north out of downtown to the small Bethesda warehouse he’d chosen online. Arriving, he found it unfenced and back from the main road, secluded with hills and heavy trees bordering two sides. He circled it and set the stage. Light pole placements were noted, as was the fact there were no exterior cameras in place. He marked a corner spot to park and patted himself on the back as he left. It seemed perfect.
He continued north on Old Georgetown Road through DC suburbia and past a large shopping area. His Honda Accord then merged east onto the Capital Beltway. He smiled as mecca quickly appeared on his left. Though half-hidden in the dense summer green, it stood elegant and soaring above the landscape. The Washington, DC LDS Temple, the single-most recognizable Mormon setting on the American east coast. He exited Georgia Avenue and was soon in the busy parking lot, the spired white building in front of him.
Ben felt no inclination to go inside. It was enough to be on the grounds, even in the summer heat. It brought the first bit of peace since his visit with John. He found a garden bench across from his car, walked over and sat down. Bowing his head, he offered a short prayer for guidance and help -- even a sign that he was on the right path.
That the solicitor general was also LDS and had probably sat on the same bench loomed large in his mind. Walter Peterson was one of the most famous Latter-day Saints in the world, Mormons looking to him with much the same esteem as the senior leaders of their church. A cult of personality existed, his name mentioned in the same breath with Hall of Fame LDS athletes, entertainers and politicians. Few Latter-day Saints were held in higher regard. A surprise appointment by an unconventional president three years prior, Peterson’s Senate confirmation had been can’t-miss television for Mormons across the country. His legal acumen and forceful confidence impressed everyone and left his church community beaming with pride.
Peterson being such a prominent member of his church had been the tipping point in Ben’s decision to confront him. As the good solicitor surely desired protection of his image and standing, Ben reasoned he’d be amenable to such a discussion. The hope was for a brother-to-brother recognition, some sort of ease-the-throttle-back, get everything on the table, save-face. Foolish? Yes. Dangerous? Maybe. He at least took comfort that Mormons were well-known for such admirable foolishness on occasion.
An older, Sunday-dressed couple turned toward him, smiling and holding hands as they walked. Ben shook his head and sighed. His own marriage was far from a mirror image. As Peterson had risen, he’d gone the other way. Purpose had eluded him since his demotion and transfer to West Virginia, his wife feeling the effects even more so. Though they’d both fought depression and a sense of futility in their new surrounds, Marge had isolated herself to the point their relationship had started to strain -- Ben’s ‘what can I do to help’ met too-often with a cold stare and the covers pulled tight.
The couple approached. Ben realized he had no tie on and probably looked out of place. He compensated by standing to greet them.
The woman smiled. “Such a beautiful day to be at the temple.”
“Yes Ma’am.”
She stopped and pointed to cars across the parking lot. “The different license plates are always so interesting.”
“Excuse me?”
“Look at that row. People here today from Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Massachusetts. I love that. Summer vacation must have them on the road -- so nice they chose to come to the House of the Lord along their way.”
Ben played along, pointing at his car backed into its spot. “What about that one?”
The woman looked and then turned back, perplexed. “I have no idea, it doesn’t have a front plate.”
Ben smiled. “That’s mine. I live in West Virginia where front plates aren’t required.”
The woman laughed. “We’ll include you in our count anyway.”
Keen to beat the heat, the woman’s husband patted her arm and looked toward Ben. “You have a nice day.”
Ben stood staring at the cars as they walked off. It was interesting commentary, something to share with his students back at the institute in Morgantown. He thought of all the license plates he’d owned over the course of his life. Washington, Arizona, Florida, Texas, Utah and now West Virginia. He’d have a nice display for his garage had he kept them.
Then, an instant realization of a flaw. Ben looked down the walk at the elderly couple and back at his car. If Peterson had his plate checked, he’d discover who he was. Ben wasn’t ready for that. If John Southland had been correct, Peterson was a menace. The short-lived peace in his heart evaporated. He felt the entire impetuous idea unravel, the grand confrontation less noble by the second.
You’re going to get yourself killed.
He returned to his car with his shoulders low and exited the lot without another thought toward the temple. He headed west, toward the shopping centers on Old Georgetown Road, intent on lunch and little else.
 
Chapter Five
June 1st, 1990
CES Area Director Oscar Trejo waited for his boss on the eighth floor of the LDS Church Office Building. He was off the clock and self-conscious minus a suit, visiting Salt Lake City on a vacation day to attend a family function. He hadn’t planned on the summons and was glad he at least had a white shirt and tie to wear.
Ushered into Associate Director Ronald Hayes’s large office by a secretary and left alone, Trejo found an oversized U.S. map propped on an easel beside the desk. Multi-colored stickpins were placed in college towns throughout the eastern United States. Trejo figured they were potential sites for the new Regional Select Institutes, knowing Church Educational System leadership had appointed Hayes to oversee the project. He was studying the map when the Associate Director entered and shut the door. Trejo pointed at the stick pins and spoke with his usual candor. “Are these what I think they are?”
Hayes smiled. “If by ‘these’ you mean potential Regional Select Institute sites, the answer is yes.”
“May I speak freely, sir?”
“I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Trejo ran his index finger down the right side of the map. “I don’t like it.”
“What’s not to like?”
“These ‘RSI’s. I don’t like the concept or the philosophy. Are we really going to encourage these students to not come to Brigham Young University or institute programs in Utah, urging them instead to stay back east for college?”
“That’s the general idea, yes.”
Hayes scooted past Trejo and sat down at his desk. He opened the center drawer and retrieved a paper-clipped set of four index cards. Trejo continued as he moved to a chair opposite his boss. “Why would we do that? How is it better than bringing them out west? Many of the eastern programs have less than a hundred students.”
Hayes took a deep breath and looked across the desk. “How are you, Oscar?”
Trejo grinned, realizing he’d jumped ahead. “Fine, sir.”
“Wife and kids?”
“Everyone’s good. They’re all waiting for me at my in-laws’. We’re attending a high school graduation tonight.”
“Who’s graduating?”
“My wife’s sister.”
“Wow. I know you’re the youngest of our Area Directors, but to have a sister-in-law graduating from high school is quite something. How old are you?”
“I’m thirty-eight, my wife’s thirty-three. She’s the oldest in her family, with eight brothers and sisters. This is the last of them.”
“Well, I hope you enjoy yourselves. When are you heading back to Arizona?”
“Tomorrow. The family will stay here a while, now that school’s out. How did you know I was even in Utah?”
“Simple. I called your office in Phoenix and found you were on the road. Your secretary gave me the number where you were staying.” “How can I help?”
“For starters, let me address your point about low enrollment at our eastern institutes. What about the students there now, Oscar? Don’t you think they would appreciate extra resources and more LDS kids joining them?”
Trejo ignored the logic. “It seems like we’re conducting an experiment which might hurt more than help in the long run.”
“The long run is why we’re doing this. The idea is to foster organic, regional growth. LDS students staying in their home areas to attend college, meeting others doing the same, marrying and settling where they’re from. Growing the church that way.”
“Sounds pie in the sky.”
Hayes shuffled his cards. “What about your Arizona Area? If I’m not mistaken, you have over five thousand Mormon students attending non-LDS colleges and their adjacent institutes down there. Why not shoot for those numbers elsewhere? Ignoring these sorts of things not only stalls the growth of our institutes outside the inter-mountain west, it very well hinders the growth of the church in those regions as well.
How many of these kids who come to Utah wind up going back to where they’re from after they graduate? And what happens to those areas of the church when they leave? Like a leaky faucet, a constant drip of strength exiting the very places that not only need them, but the spots these young folks call home. And where do they wind up? They either stay here, where we already have an overflowing strength, or land in a third place with no roots and a yearning to move yet again. No Oscar, I don’t see it like you seem to anymore. Fortifying institute programs to retain many of these students in their home areas is what we should be doing, and these RSI’s are just what the doctor ordered.”
Hayes doled out the index cards across his desk. Trejo sat forward and watched. College Station, Texas; Gainesville, Florida; Blacksburg, Virginia and East Lansing, Michigan. Texas A&M, the University of Florida, Virginia Tech and Michigan State -- already four of the largest institute programs east of the Rocky Mountains. Hayes looked up and continued. “These are the four we’ve decided to start with and the groundwork has already been laid. Marketing materials have been drafted and Church architects have visited the sites, submitting plans to renovate and expand each one. I now have to recommend additional staff, including full-fledged assistant directors at each location.”
Hayes picked up a card and got to his point. “Tell me about this fellow you have in Mesa, Ben Samuels.”
“Samuels? Great guy with a full head of steam.”
“So I’ve heard. He has a Master’s in Higher Education and was baptized in an institute font. If his interview goes well, I’m thinking of sending him here….”
Hayes handed Trejo the card in his hand. Trejo took it, reading it aloud. “Gainesville, Florida. The University of Florida.”
He turned serious. “Well, if you’re going to do this, I think Ben’s perfect. Amazing really. How did you hear about him?”
“He’s inquired about moving from our high school seminary programs to the collegiate institutes.”
Trejo smiled. “He’s an interesting case study. A convert who never attended high school seminary, now teaching it and doing quite well. He’s been in Mesa several years and seems content, but it wouldn’t surprise me if bigger things were ahead for Ben.”
“He grew up in Spokane, Washington, right?”
“I think so. He joined the church while attending Washington State University, in Pullman. He’s told me that. His wife introduced him to the missionaries, back when they were dating.”
“I look forward to meeting him.”
“I have a different idea for you. If you’re serious about this ‘homegrown’ business, why not assign someone who happens to be from Florida to be the new assistant director? Send that person home and leave Samuels in Arizona. We’d hate to lose him.”
Hayes put his elbows on his desk and leaned forward. “Excellent question, Oscar. It goes to my larger point. We’ve actually looked into that, at all four sites. Would you believe we don’t have a single qualified CES employee who hails from Texas, Florida, Virginia or Michigan? Think about that -- it’s a telling fact. Twenty or thirty years from now, we hope to find a different circumstance. Maybe you’ll be sitting in my chair by then. If you are, I hope you’ll find more options than I have today.”
Trejo wasn’t ready to quit. “I still don’t like it, sir. As a parent, I’ll do everything I can to get my kids to one of our church colleges and would only consider something like an RSI as a last resort. I wouldn’t even want them at the major Arizona universities attending the institute programs I oversee. I want them here in Utah, where we’re at our best.”
“I understand, and we’re not interested in weakening the church schools. This will be an additional, fortified resource to work in tandem with what we have here in the inter-mountain west. Let’s not forget, these institute programs already exist. Our goal is to strengthen them, create a few gems to shine bright and give the LDS students from these areas another solid option to consider.” “What about financial considerations? One of the great benefits of church colleges is the tithing-supported low cost. Certainly BYU is a cheaper option than the University of Florida.”
“We’re working on that as well. As part of the roll-out, LDS endowments and scholarships will be set up and encouraged at each RSI site. We’ll be asking the membership to consider donations. It’ll defray the cost differences and further enhance the visibility and viability of the programs.”
“Do you think you’ll get much in the way of contributions?”
“I’m confident we will. These programs might be small, but they’ve had their successes over the years. We’ll be reaching out to the alumni, as well as the general membership. I believe it will work, and work well.”
“Florida would be lucky to have someone like Ben Samuels. Why not send him to Washington, where he’s from? I’m sure he’d love that. I visited his classroom a couple months ago. He had a Washington State banner on his wall.”
Hayes reached over and retrieved the card from his area director. “No, it’s east of the Rockies where the interest lies. If these four programs are successful, we’ll expand from there. As you’ve said, it seems Ben will do well wherever he’s assigned. At least for now, it’s Florida that’s in the cards for him.”
 
Chapter Six
Tuesday, July 16th
Ben was still smoking when the black SUV entered the parking lot and disappeared to the other side of the warehouse. Opening his door, he cursed himself for being so dramatic with the cigarettes. He’d smoked for three hours straight, more in remembrance of a life long passed than any desire to calm his nerves. He got out, stubbed his last one and threw the almost-empty pack in a nearby dumpster.
Enough of that.
He took a deep breath and headed the other way around, rehearsing what he would say.
I know what you did. I know what you are doing…
The SUV’s yellow fog lamps brightened his path as he turned the final corner, the vehicle fifty yards ahead. A man was standing outside the open driver’s door. He reached in and flipped on the high beams, assaulting Ben’s eyes with a blinding white.
“That’s far enough.”
Ben stopped and raised his hands halfway as the man came toward him. He was short and thin, quite the opposite from what Ben knew of Walter Peterson’s large build. The man’s suit, tie and confident gait identified him as a deputy or agent, a man with a badge and a gun. He approached, looked Ben over and then patted him down, spinning him around to double-check.
“What’s your name and what do you want with the Solicitor General?”
“I need to speak with him.”
“I need to see some ID.”
“I’d rather not disclose who I am. Is he with you?”
“Did you write that note?”
Ben started to answer but saw another man climb out of the SUV, shutting the door behind him. “Chris, it’s ok, send him over.” Chris forced a smile. “I guess you win. Follow me.”
Peterson’s thickset frame cast a wide shadow in the dim light. Tall and overweight to a fault without a hair on his head, he resembled a former athlete who’d let himself go, his glory years decades behind him. He was dressed to match his guard, but as they came to the passenger side of the SUV, Ben could tell his suit and tie were from a much better store -- the United States Solicitor General before him.
Ben hesitated then stepped close, an image of his dead friend appearing in his mind. Peterson wrinkled his nose and leaned back on his heels. “Who are you and what’s this cloak and dagger business about?”
Ben glanced at Chris, astonished he’d made it to the moment at hand. He turned and looked Peterson in the eye. “Never mind who I am. I’m here about James Montano.”
Peterson raised his eyebrows. “Who?”
“I’m sure you know the name.”
Peterson scraped his shoe across the asphalt. “The note you wrote this morning. You’re an institute director for the Church? Where?”
“Yes, I work for the Church out here. Telling you that was the only way I could get this meeting. But I’m not here to talk about me. I want to talk about James Montano.”
“Again, I don’t know anyone by that name. To be honest, this is quite strange. If you aren’t going to tell me more about you, this little waste of my time is over.”
Peterson turned and reached for his door. Ben gathered himself and brought forward his case. “I think you killed him…. And if you did, I know he’s not the only one.”
His fist on the handle, Peterson stared at the reflection in the window and seemed lost in thought. He then straightened and swung back, his demeanor cold, his voice that of a seasoned prosecutor. “First, would that be cigarettes I smell? Mormon institute director? I think not.”
Ben tried to reply but was cut off.
“Second, I have no idea what you’re talking about and it’s obvious you don’t know what you’re doing here. Third, though I haven’t had the privilege of an introduction, you seem to know who I am. I would think that might give you pause. I know nothing of a ‘James Montano.’ I suggest you slink back to your car and head home before you find yourself in serious trouble.”
Ben pressed as Chris stepped forward to intercede. “James ‘Jimmy’ Montano, AKA John Southland, witness protection case WS436C. Found dead in a ditch three days ago, south of Greensburg, Pennsylvania. He came to me last week, told me everything and gave me proof.”
Peterson’s bald head cocked to the right, his eyes widening at the mention of John’s real name. He dropped his hand from the SUV’s door and started toward Ben, raising his chin like a prizefighter sizing up an opponent.
Ben caught his breath and stepped back. Chris grabbed his arm and shuffled him off, letting him go in front of the headlights.
“Stand still with your hands where I can see them. Stay like that until we leave.”
Awash in the light, Ben watched as Chris went back behind Peterson, who stood glaring his way. He opened the rear passenger door and tugged on the solicitor general’s coat.
“Come on boss, let’s go.”
Peterson sneered and shook his head, then turned and climbed back into the vehicle. Chris retreated to his driver’s seat and put the SUV into reverse. Ben stayed put, his nerves shot and mind racing, the taste of something much worse than cigarettes in his mouth.
.....
Peterson pulled out his phone and sent a text to Neck, stationed nearby in a stand of hackberry trees.
-Stand down.
He looked out the window and up the hill, catching a glimpse of his lanky security assistant lowering his sniper rifle. Peterson then turned toward the windshield and took stock of the so-called institute director. Just under six feet tall and waspy white, he had a pot belly, balding salt and pepper hair, cheap shoes, wire-framed glasses and a skittish demeanor. The typical build of a fellow Mormon in his mid-fifties. Though he resisted the thought, he had to admit -- every box was checked.
“Proof? What proof could he have?”
He ordered Chris to step on it and they were gone.
 
END OF EXCERPT....

2020.06.04 05:59 Legitimate_Plankton Searching for next of kin of deceased uncle.

Hi all! I have a problem that I think this sub will be able to help me out with. My great uncle passed away last Wednesday, and I have been helping my grandma with all the service planning and what not. Today, she encountered a problem at the funeral home when trying to proceed with the planning. My grandma can’t make any decisions because she is not next of kin. That would be my great uncles son, who he has not seen since the boy was 2 (1982).
This is the story given to me by my grandma: my uncle married and he and his wife had their son in Dec 1980. Shortly after, my uncle was deployed to Germany. When he returned home, he found out his wife was seeing another man. They split, she took everything including the son. That was the last he saw his son. In 1985, after 3 years of trying to contact his ex-wife with no luck, she called to tell my uncle that his son has leukemia and that he needed to fly out to Montana to see if he was a match to donate bone marrow. However, the next morning she called to tell my uncle his son was deceased. Any attempt by my uncle to contact his ex-wife again after that failed. A few years later, social services contacted my uncle to get child support for 2 children, one of which was his son. He explained that he only had one child, which he believed had passed away a few years earlier.
My grandma didn’t say if he ended up paying child support or what exactly happened after that point. All I know is that the last time he saw his son was 1982, and as far as I know never contacted him when his son was an adult. I have the sons full name, date of birth, and location of birth. I also have his mothers name. My grandma called the police department for the town in Montana that called seeking child support from my uncle, they said they had no information on someone with that name, however called back to say that they had tracked down his last known location to Spokane, Washington. We called the police department there and are waiting to hear back.
We’ve obviously been scouring all social media for his son, and I’ve been searching the internet all day with no luck. If needed, I can ask my grandma for any more information she has about the son or about what ended up happening with social services. If anyone has any ideas of how to track him down, please leave suggestions! We’d like to avoid having to hire a PI but will if that’s what we need to do.

He's giving our county the ability to move to Phase 2 based on the fact that we have met the state's standards (per Nadine Woodward): less than 10 new cases per 100,000 people, local health officer's recommendation, board of health vote, county commission vote, local hospital confirming capacity, local capacity to contract trace, local capacity to perform outbreak investigations.
No exact date set, but Phase 2 is coming soon to Spokane.
Phase 2:

2020.05.07 18:31 Cheeseburgerbil 1977 cukoo clock. Was working. Now definitely isnt.

The only identifying mark is a sticker on the back "The clockhouse sales and service" spokane, Wa (and address) dated 1977 .
This clock was given to me about 6 years ago and worked before I moved. One of the chains was stuck, gear wasnt turning and i'm pretty sure i broke it further by forcing it. Are these things worth anything? The company is still in business at a different address. Im thinking of taking it down there to be fixed.

2020.04.18 06:43 Quirky-Motor EXTENSIVE write up- the disappearance of Cody Haynes

Hello everyone,
Recently, I did a few EXTENSIVE write ups on the cases of DeOrr Kunz, and Asha Degree, which many readers seemed to enjoy. I also did a shorter write up about a girl named Teekah Lewis, who unfortunately did not have as much coverage. Teekah’s story is somewhat local to me so I was happy to share her story, but today I wanted to share a case that hits very close to home. A story that transpired a few miles from my front door. This is the story of the disappearance of Richard “Cody” Haynes.
Description
· Missing Since 09/12/2004
· Missing from Kittitas, Washington
· Classification Endangered Missing
· Sex Male
· Race White
· Date of Birth 04/16/1993 (27)
· Age 11 years old
· Height and Weight 5'0 - 5'1, 90 pounds
· Clothing/Jewelry Description A red hat and a red or gray coat.
· Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, blue eyes. Richard is addressed by his nickname, Cody. He has a round birthmark on his inner right thigh.
At the time of his disappearance Cody was eleven years old, a sixth grader. He was described by his father as a deceitful child who needed discipline. Other family members remember Cody as outdoorsy, rambunctious, and friendly if not overly social. His grandmother described him as typical kid of his age.
Background
Richard Lee Haynes Jr., who went by the nickname Cody, was born in Littleton, Colorado to Lisa Doney and Richard Haynes Sr. on 04/16/1993 (Crime watchers, 2020). By 1999 Cody’s parents were no longer together and Cody was living with his mother in Florida. In October of 1999 Cody’s mother was jailed for child abuse and he along with his sisters were placed with their father (AP article, 2004- Fox News link below). Lisa was not allowed legally to contact her son for any purpose (Spokesman Review November, 2004).
In December of that year Cody, his father, and his father’s girlfriend moved to the small eastern Washington town of Kittitas (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018). Kittitas is a small community with 1100 residents. It is isolated, flat, and windy. There is a grocery/car repai fishing supplies all in one called “Johnny’s”, a school, a post office, and a few random businesses There are no banks or fast food restaurants. ( Photo here- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kittitas,_Washington#/media/File:Kittitas_Washington_ Skyline.jpg). The primary profession in Kittitas is farming hay. The police department has only two employees.
Ten miles down the road is the larger town of Ellensburg, Washington, home to Central Washington University. At the time of Cody’s disappearance Ellensburg was home to 17,000 people, 10,000 of whom were college students. The town of CleElum lies 25 miles west of Ellensburg and boasts a population of 1,800. These are the only settlements of note in the county, which is situated in the middle of Washington state along interstate 90 (Spokesman Review November, 2004). I hope this gives everyone a frame of reference to understand the type of area we are talking about.
The life in Washington State
Cody and his father moved to Kittitas, Washington where they lived in a two story, two-bedroom apartment in downtown Kittitas with Richard Sr.’s girlfriend Marla Jaye Harding and Cody’s four older sisters (Spokesman Review November, 2004). It is unclear when Marla came into the picture, but the couple was not married at any point before Cody went missing. At least one of Cody’s older sisters, Samantha Dobbs (nee Haynes) was a half-sister (NBC, 2012). I am unsure of his other three sisters’ relation to him and it is unclear if any (or all) of the girls Cody lived with were Lisa’s children.
In the home, the girls slept in one bedroom and the Cody and his parents slept in the other bedroom. For whatever reason, there was no door on the master bedroom, it opened straight to the hallway. The home was not in a traditional apartment building but rather it was a dwelling in the upper levels of a business. There was a yard behind the property (Spokesman Review November, 2004). Neighbors occasionally saw the four girls playing in the back yard but rarely saw the boy outside. One neighbor reported that he did not even know a boy lived in the residence (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018). Thinking he knew every child in town, police chief Steve Dunnagan of Kittitas was also surprised to hear that a little boy lived just blocks from the police station, because he did not know or even recognize Cody.
In late 1999 Marla Jaye Harding (occasionally called Marla Jane Harding or Marla Harding- Haynes) worked as a social worker in Ellensburg and Richard Sr., who goes by Rick, worked as a Tow Truck Driver at D&M towing in Ellensburg (Spokesman Review November, 2004). In 2001 Cody went to school in Kittitas where a CPS call was made for child neglect, physical, and mental abuse. Cody was pulled out of that school and began going to school in Ellensburg. In 2002 another CPS call was made for similar reasons. Both reports were taken but the file was closed without Rick ever losing his children (The Charley Project, 2004 and Crime watchers, 2020). At some point, neighbors of the family reported that they saw the children outside without in the winter without shoes or coats, but it is unclear when this was reported (Crime watchers, 2020).
According to her own LinkedIn account Marla was fired in 2003 (LinkedIn, 2013). Court records from early 2004 show that Marla Harding was fired from her job due to misconduct and she was unable to receive unemployment due to the circumstances of her dismissal (Kitsap Sun November, 2004). It does not appear Marla got another job after this. (Some sources say that Marla lost her job in 2001- this is false. It was 2003-2004).
The Disappearance
On September 11th, 2004 at around 8 pm Cody was asked to do the dishes by his step mother while his father was at work (Kitsap Sun November, 2004). Cody refused and Harding made the boy sit at the kitchen table for four hours as punishment. At around midnight he was sent to his room to continue his punishment. Around this time was the last time Cody’s sisters ever saw him (Kitsap Sun November, 2004). Cody’s father returned from work around 12 am but left at 2:30 am to go look for car parts. (More info on the trip in the other things section). (The Charley Project, 2004 and Kitsap Sun November, 2004). At this point in the early morning one neighbor reported that Rick’s van was running in the backyard. The van was pulled up to the shed and the noise from the car starting up had woken the neighbor’s baby, which is why she remembered the incident.
The next morning Cody’s sisters awoke to a ring of chairs around the master bedroom’s doorway. A note on the chairs said that Cody’s sisters were to stay away from Cody’s room because he was grounded and had to stay in there for a while. The girls were allowed to watch movies all day, but they never saw Cody (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018).
At 4 pm, Rick returned from his journey for car parts a full 14 hours after he left (Kitsap Sun November, 2004). He and Marla checked on Cody between 4 and 5 pm on September 12th for the first time, only to find him gone. At 6:30 pm they called the police to report that Cody had run away from home (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018). Rick suggested to the police that Cody may have run away to see his mother in Florida (The Daily Record, Dec. 2004). Authorities found Cody’s bike and a bag of clothes hidden in a shed behind the home, so they were suspicious of the runaway theory (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018). Rick would not allow his daughters to be questioned, either (Kitsap Sun November, 2004). When it came to light that no adult had checked on Cody for close to 18 hours, Rick’s four daughters were removed from the home and placed into foster care on September 21st. Social services reportedly took the children away based on lack of supervision in the home, and abuse for not allowing Cody to eat, drink, or use the toilet while he was being disciplined, although it appears the bathroom was attached to Cody’s room (The Charley Project, 2004).
At first the girls had nothing to say about the night Cody disappeared, but later (early 2005) interviews revealed a chilling story. On the night that Cody disappeared, he was severely beaten in the kitchen (The Charley Project, 2004). At one point one his sisters checked on him but she was told to mind her business and wacked on the head. At some point during the night the girls heard a loud thud and Cody stopped crying (Change.org petition). At this point Rick left on his journey to find car parts. He drove 250 miles in the middle of the night driving from Kittitas to Toppenish, through Yakima, west to Natches, and then somehow ended up in Ritzville before breaking down and having to call for help (The Daily Record, Dec. 2004). Rick bought no car parts that night. Two days after Cody’s disappearance Rick sold his van for scrap metal/ car parts (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018). Thankfully, police were able to recover most of the van. Due to a mix up at the scrap yard, the van was not towed immediately (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018).
In early 2005, once Cody’s sisters started giving interviews to law enforcement, a search warrant was issued; they seized Marla’s car and raided the home. In the kitchen the flooring had been replaced without the knowledge or consent of the landlords (Chrysalis Chapter article, 2018). One article also says that a camper owned by the couple was searched. During the execution of this search warrant, police made a “significant discovery” but they have never elaborated on this find (Spokesman Review February, 2005). Investigators wanted to question Marla and Rick but both retained lawyers and refused to talk to investigators unless they were interviewed as a couple together with their lawyer. Immediately afterwards, Marla and Rick got married (Spokesman Review November, 2004). Many have speculated that this was so Rick and Marla could not be subpoenaed to testify against each other, however, spousal privilege only protects you against testifying to things that happened while you are married. The couple split soon after their shotgun wedding. In October 2005 Kittitas police handed over the investigation to the FBI, who still has jurisdiction today.
Aftermath
Neither Marla or Rick ever joined in the searches for Cody. They have never attended vigils for his safe return or spoken to Law Enforcement or the media, except to yell “Cody’s not dead” and “vigils are for dead people” when followed around by the media (Spokesman Review November, 2004). In January 2005, Rick even tried to get a restraining order against the chief of police in Kittitas but it was denied. Eventually, Marla moved to California and Rick moved to the Seattle area. At some point Rick was married again to woman named Mary, before his untimely death in 2019 (Justice for Cody Facebook page). Subsequent interviews with Cody’s sisters revealed that all the children were often beaten with various objects such as a chair by both adults in the home, however, Cody got the brunt of the violence (Change.org petition). Sometimes the siblings were hit with a bucket between their legs so that they wouldn’t get the floor dirty if they wet themselves (Change.org petition). Additionally, according to Cody’s sisters, Rick never visited them in foster care after they were removed from the home (Change.org petition).

Other things
Car parts journey
I am not sure exactly why but law enforcement has confirmed that Rick did travel the 250 miles that night during his trip for “car parts”. I’m not sure how they confirmed this, but it has apparently been proven that Rick’s van was driven 250 miles that night. (The only explanation I can think of is that maybe it was a company car or he had to track his mileage for some reason).
For this part of the story to be true Rick would have taken I 84 south for 60 miles to Toppenish, a small town on the Yakama reservation, then backtracked going north through Yakima on I 84, a whole 21 miles. Then he would have traveled west a few miles to the small town of Natches (Pronounced nah-Cheese), then somehow moved south about 22 miles yet again to get back to Toppenish, go east to Richland so he could mistakenly get on the 395 east towards Ritzville and Spokane finally arriving in Sprague on I 90, nearly 166 miles from his starting point in Toppenish, before breaking down and having to call for help. This is Rick’s account of the night-in case you didn’t already think this trip was bizarre.
Cody’s family
Cody’s sisters, cousins, mother, grandparents, teachers, neighbors, continue to look for Cody and hold vigils for him. Searches for him have been made numerous times, with nothing found but animal bones, and unrelated clothing. Recent searches have turned up no sign of Cody and no trace of him has even been found.
Sources
Some of the sources for this write up are blogs and Facebook pages. Now normally, I wouldn’t use sources like these, but with stories like Cody’s where the information is sparse, this is sometimes the best place for information. Additionally, since this is a case local to me, I know for a fact that the blog, the Facebook page, and the change.org petition are all run by family members of Cody, either his cousins or his sisters, so I was more confident including these sources. I did not know Cody myself but friends and co-workers of mine did. Also, these sources contain interviews with various family membe teachers etc. that you cannot find other places. I just wanted to clear this info up. In fact, one of Cody’s relatives also has a reddit account and has posted here before.
Additionally, while it may seem, there are lots of sources for Cody’s story nearly all the articles about him are mere blurbs in larger stories, or simply re-reported information from the Charley project. Even local news coverage is slim and no new information has not been released since 2005.
Will there ever be justice for Cody?

2020.04.18 01:53 portlane Mary Cunningham (April 2, 1936 - March 20, 2020)

Mary Kathleen Cunningham (Meeds)
April 2, 1936 - March 20, 2020
Mary Kathleen (Meeds) Cunningham left us Friday evening, March 20, 2020, after a short illness.
Kathleen was born April 2, 1936, in Spokane, Wash., to Fredrick Meeds and Jean Hawkins, but the family stayed in that city for only about a year before moving to Eugene, then to Portland, where Fred found work as a display artist for a local department store and Jean taught elementary school. Kathleen was soon joined by two sisters, Anne (Czuba) and Eileen (Dougherty).
Kathleen graduated high school from St. Mary's Academy and went on to the University of Portland, where she studied to be a teacher. There she met Thomas Wayne Cunningham, whom she married Aug. 23, 1958, at St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Portland.
Just before their first anniversary, Kathleen gave birth to her first child, a son, Mark Joseph. The family of three moved to Seattle shortly thereafter, where Tom had been hired to teach psychology at Seattle University. A second son, Gregory James and two daughters, Mary Catherine (Mary Kay) and Margaret Frances (Peggy) were born during that time.
With these four in tow, Tom and Kathleen returned to Portland, where Tom was to earn a PhD in psychology, again at the University of Portland. The family stayed there for just about two years and then returned to Seattle for good. Shortly after returning, a fifth and final child, Paul Thomas, was born, a week before Kathleen's 30th birthday.
The next few years were filled with kids' birthday parties and play dates, holiday planning and school activities. When Paul reached the age of seven, though, Kathleen decided it was time to return to school. She enrolled in classes at the Seattle University School of Nursing graduating in 1978. Her focus was geriatric nursing and she worked at the Kline-Galland Home in Seattle's Seward Park neighborhood for many years. She specialized in foot care and regularly met with patients at clinics in the Seattle area. She also worked for many years at the Jesuit infirmary at Seattle University. Even after she retired, she continued to provide foot care to the elderly.
Grandkids first entered the picture in late 1986 and they kept coming until early 2016, 11 in all.
Kathleen was an active member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Seattle for 54 years, where she lectured and sang in the choir. Kathleen loved to sing and had a beautiful voice, which she willingly and joyfully shared. In 2004, Kathleen traveled to Nueva Trinidad in El Salvador, where St. Patrick's had a relationship with a local parish. She had always hoped to return but was never able to do so.
She lived her last years at the Skyline Continuous Care facility just east of downtown Seattle, surrounded by many friends, children, and grandchildren.
Kathleen was preceded in death by her parents; and by her husband, Tom. She is survived by her two sisters, Anne (Quenton) of Portland and Eileen (Mike) of Scottsdale, Ariz.; five children, Mark (Shannon Callahan), Greg (Gina Petrie), Mary Kay Giese (Brandt), Peggy and Paul (Kate Thorbeck); and 13 grandchildren.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, no funeral or memorial service is scheduled at this time. A celebration of Kathleen's life will take place at a later date.

2020.04.04 18:34 clemaneuverers "Sasquatch", "Wildmen", "Matlox", "Yeti" "Almas"; call them what you will; there are credible historical and contemporary reports and evidence, from around the world, that show mysterious Humanoid/Ape-like Mammals exist in the wilderness of the Earth's continents.

What follows is a massively abridged (by me) version of Chapter 10 of "Forbidden Archeology" by Michael Cremo and Richard L. Thompson. Reading it recently I found it enthralling, but I wished some of the things described were better illustrated (if at all!). So I spent some time searching online for the appropriate images. I then abridged and formatted the chapter for posting to Reddit, and inserted the pictures that I found into the text. I've included, at an appropriate part of the text, a link to more recent info relating to DNA discoveries ...
Living Ape-Men?
There are signs that humans may have coexisted with more apelike hominids throughout the Pleistocene. We suggest that humans and ape-man-like creatures continue to coexist. Over the past hundred or so years, researchers have accumulated substantial evidence that creatures resembling Neanderthals, Homo erectus, and the Australopithecines even now roam wilderness areas of the world.
Hard Evidence Is Hard To Find
In 1775, Carl Linnaeus, the founder of the modern system of biological classification, listed three existing human species: Homo sapiens, Homo troglodytes (cave man), and Homo ferus (wild man). Although Linnaeus knew the latter two species only from travellers’ reports and secondary sources, he included them in his Systema Naturae.
Professional scientists have (1) observed wild-men in natural surroundings, (2) observed live captured specimens, (3) observed dead specimens, and (4) collected physical evidence for wild-men, including hundreds of footprints. They have also interviewed non-scientist informants and investigated the vast amount of wildman lore contained in ancient literatures and traditions.
Many will say that all the wildman evidence mentioned above exists simply in reports, and that reports alone, even those given by scientists, are not sufficient to establish the existence of wild-men. However, in palaeoanthropology, as in many areas of science, evidence exists primarily in the form of reports.
During World War II almost the whole collection of Homo Erectus fossils was lost during the Japanese occupation of China. The Homo Erectus fossils now exist only in the form of old written reports, photographs, and casts. And no one doubts that the originals did in fact exist.
But what about reports by scientists who claim they saw and examined dead specimens of wildmen, the corpses of which were not preserved? Most scientists will grant no credibility at all to such reports. In one case the reports are believed, and in the other they are not. Why? We propose that reports about evidence conforming to the standard view of human evolution generally receive greater credibility than reports about nonconforming evidence. Thus deeply held beliefs, rather than purely objective standards, may become the determining factor in the acceptance and rejection of reports about controversial evidence.
Cryptozoology
...refers to the scientific investigation of species whose existence has been reported but not fully documented.
Is it really possible that there could be an unknown species of hominid on this planet? There remain vast unpopulated and little-travelled areas. In particular, the North-Western United States still has large regions of densely forested, mountainous terrain which, although mapped from the air, are rarely penetrated by humans on the ground. A surprising number of new species of animals are still being found each year—about 5,000 according to a conservative estimate. As might be suspected, the great majority of these, some 4,000, are insects.
Yet, The largest of the bears, the Kodiak bear, was unknown to science until 1899. The largest rhinoceros, Cotton’s white rhino, was discovered in 1900. The mountain gorilla, the largest member of the ape family, turned up in 1901. The largest lizard, the Komodo dragon, was first captured in 1912. In 1975, the largest known peccary, or wild hog, Catagonus wagneri, was discovered in Paraguay. This animal was previously known only by Pleistocene fossils. In 1976, a large and entirely new species of shark, 4.5 meters (almost 15 feet) long and weighing over 700 kilograms (over 1,500 pounds), was caught by a U.S. Navy ship in the ocean waters off Hawaii.
European Wild-men
Many art objects of the Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, and Etruscans bear images of semi-human creatures resembling wild-men. During the Middle Ages, wild-men continued to be depicted in European art and architecture. A page from Queen Mary’s Psalter, composed in the fourteenth century, shows a very realistically depicted hairy wildman being attacked by a pack of dogs.
Wild-men were thought to live in caves and forests. They subsisted on berries and roots. They were not considered ordinary humans. They were said to be members of the animal kingdom.
Northwestern North America
In 1792, the Spanish botanist-naturalist José Mariano Moziño, in describing the Indians of Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island, Canada, stated:
“I do not know what to say about Matlox, inhabitant of the mountainous district, of whom all have an unbelievable terror. They imagine his body as very monstrous, all covered with stiff black bristles; a head similar to a human one, but with much greater, sharper and stronger fangs than those of the bear; extremely long arms; and toes and fingers armed with long curved claws. His shouts alone (they say) force those who hear them to the ground, and any unfortunate body he slaps is broken into a thousand pieces.”
Of the Spokane Indians of the Pacific Northwest, Elkanah Walker, a missionary who lived among them for 9 years, wrote in 1840:
“They believe in the existence of a race of giants which inhabit a certain mountain, off to the west of us. They inhabit its top. They hunt and do all their work in the night. They are men stealers. They come to people’s lodges in the night, when the people are asleep and take them and put them under their skins and take them to their place of abode without their even awakening. They say their track is about a foot and a half long. They frequently come in the night and steal their salmon from their nets and eat them raw. If the people are awake they always know when they are coming very near by the smell which is most intolerable”
Indians from the Columbia River region of the northwestern United States produced rock carvings that resembled the heads of apes. Anthropologist Grover Krantz showed photographs of the heads to a number of scientists and noted:
“Zoologists who did not know their source unanimously declared them to be representative of nonhuman, higher primates; those who knew the source insisted they must be something else!” Preconceptions seem to determine what scientists are prepared to see, and one thing most scientists are definitely not prepared to see is apelike creatures in the American Northwest.
On July 4, 1884, the Colonist, a newspaper published in Victoria, British Columbia, carried a story titled: “What is it? A strange creature captured above Yale. A British Columbian Gorilla.” Ned Austin, a railway engineer, spotted a human-like creature ahead of him on the tracks, blew the whistle, and stopped. The creature darted up the side of a hill, with several railway employees in pursuit. After capturing the animal, described as “half man and half beast”, the railway employees turned him over to Mr. George Tilbury. The Colonist reported: “‘Jacko,’ as the creature has been called by his capturers, is something of the gorilla type, standing about four feet seven inches in height and weighing 127 pounds. He has long, black, strong hair and resembles a human being with one exception, his entire body, excepting his hands (or paws) and feet is covered with glossy hair about one inch long. His forearm is much longer than a man’s forearm, and he possesses extraordinary strength”
Myra Shackley noted:
“The newspaper account of Jacko was subsequently confirmed by an old man, August Castle, who was a child in the town at the time. The fate of the captive is not known, although some said that he (accompanied by Mr. Tilbury) was shipped east by rail in a cage on the way to be exhibited in a sideshow, but died in transit”
Furthermore, there were additional reports of creatures like Jacko from the same region. Zoologist Ivan Sanderson said about Jacko in one of his collections of wildman evidence:
“one of his species had been reported from the same area by Mr. Alexander Caulfield Anderson, a well-known explorer and an executive of the Hudson’s Bay Company, who was doing a ‘survey’ of the newly opened territory and seeking a feasible trade route through it for his company. He reported just such hairy humanoids as having hurled rocks down upon him and his surveying party from more than one slope. That was in 1864.”
In 1967, in the Bluff Creek region of Northern California, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin managed to shoot a short color film of a female Sasquatch.
They also made casts of her footprints. These prints, which were 14 inches long, were 5.5 inches wide at the ball and 4 inches wide at the heel
Several opinions have been expressed about the film. While some authorities have said it is an outright fake, others have said they think it provides good evidence in favor of the reality of the Sasquatch. Mixed opinions have also been put forward. A man could have sufficient height and suitable proportions to mimic the longitudinal dimensions of the Sasquatch. The shoulder breadth however would be difficult to achieve without giving an unnatural appearance to the arm swing and shoulder contours”
Anthropologist Myra Shackley of the University of Leicester observed that the majority view seems to be
“that the film could be a hoax, but if so an incredibly clever one.”
Dr. Jeff Meldrum compares the surface anatomy between the costumes in Beneath the Planet of the Apes and the Patterson-Gimlin film. He says there’s no comparison.
More Footprints
As far as Sasquatch footprints are concerned, independent witnesses have examined and reported hundreds of sets, and of these more than 100 have been preserved in photographs and casts.
Footprint comparison by Professor Meldrum
Napier stated:
“if any of them is real then as scientists we have a lot to explain. Among other things we shall have to re-write the story of human evolution. Critics, however, assert that all these footprints have been faked. Undoubtedly, some footprints have been faked, a fact the staunchest supporters of the Sasquatch will readily admit. But could every single one of them be a hoax?
Grover S. Krantz, an anthropologist at Washington State University, was initially skeptical of Sasquatch reports.In reconstructing the skeletal structure of the foot from a print, he noted that the ankle was positioned more forward than in a human foot. Taking into consideration the reported height and weight of an adult Sasquatch, Krantz, using his knowledge of physical anthropology, calculated just how far forward the ankle would have to be set. Returning to the prints, he found that the position of the ankle exactly matched his theoretical calculations.
“That’s when I decided the thing is real,”
said Krantz.
“There is no way a faker could have known how far forward to set that ankle. It took me a couple of months to work it out with the casts in hand, so you have to figure how much smarter a faker would’ve had to be”
Typically the prints are 14 to 18 inches long and 5 to 9 inches wide, giving a surface roughly 3 to 4 times larger than that of an average human foot. Hence the popular name Bigfoot. To make a Sasquatch footprint as deep as an average human footprint would require a weight 3 to 4 times greater than that of an average-sized man. In all cases, however, whether the prints are in snow, mud, dirt, or wet sand, the Sasquatch prints are much deeper than those made by a man walking right next to them in the same material. Thus a weight of more than 3 or 4 times that of a man is required to make the Sasquatch prints. A 200-pound man would have to be carrying at least 500 pounds to make a good print. There are reports of series of prints extending from three-quarters of a mile up to several miles, in deserted regions far away from the nearest roads. The stride length of a Sasquatch varies from 4 to 6 feet (the stride length of an average man is about 3 feet). Try walking a mile with at least 500 pounds on your back and taking strides 5 feet long.
In several cases, the Sasquatch footprints indicated the maker strode over large logs, which a human of normal size could not have gotten over without disturbing the fresh snow clearly visible on their tops. In some cases, the distance between the toes of the footprints varied from one print to the next in a single series of prints. This means that besides all the other problems facing a hoaxer, he would have had to incorporate moving parts into his artificial feet. Furthermore, in order to insure that some of his fake prints would be found, any hoaxer would probably have had to make more trails of footprints than were actually discovered—and that means a lot of work.
In conclusion, critics have failed to explain all the footprints as the work of hoaxers. It would seem, therefore, that the footprints argue strongly for the reality of the Sasquatch, as demonstrated by the following case.
On June 10, 1982, Paul Freeman, a U.S. Forest Service patrolman tracking elk in the Walla Walla district of Washington State, observed a hairy biped around 8 feet tall, standing about 60 yards from him. After 30 seconds, the large animal walked away. Krantz studied casts of the creature’s footprints and found dermal ridges, sweat pores, and other features in the proper places for large primate feet. Detailed skin impressions on the side walls of the prints indicated the presence of a flexible sole pad. Krantz solicited opinions from other scholars and fingerprint experts. Tatyana Gladkova, a specialist in dermatoglyphics from the USSR Institute of Anthropology, said:
“I see dermal ridges of the arch type distally directed. I see sweat pores. If it’s a fake, it’s a brilliant fake, on the level of counterfeiting, and by someone well versed in dermatoglyphics”
Douglas M. Monsoor, a master police fingerprint examiner from Lakewood, Colorado, stated:
“I see the presence of ridge structure in these casts, which, in my examination, appears consistent with that type of ridge structure you would find in a human. Under magnification, they evidence all the minute characteristics similar to human dermal ridges. They appear to be casts of impressions of a primate foot—of a creature different from any of which I am aware”
The majority of the Sasquatch reports come from the northwestern United States and British Columbia. However, there are also numerous reports from the eastern parts of the United States and Canada. For example there were, as of 1977, 11 reports from New York, more than 24 reports from Pennsylvania, 19 reports from Ohio, 18 from Michigan, 9 from Tennessee, more than 36 from New Jersey, 19 from Arkansas, 23 from Illinois, 30 from Texas, and 104 from Florida, 74 reports from Montana, 32 from Idaho, 176 from Oregon, 281 from Washington, 225 from British Columbia, and 343 from California.
“One is forced to conclude that a man-like life-form of gigantic proportions is living at the present time in the wild areas of the northwestern United States and British Columbia.”
Central And South America
In Buckskin Joe, Edward Jonathan Hoyt reported an encounter he had in 1898 in Honduras. A large, apelike creature, about 5 feet tall, crawled over the end of his bunk. Hoyt killed the animal, which resembled a human
From southern Mexico’s tropical forests come accounts of beings called the Sisimite. Wendell Skousen, a geologist, said the people of Cubulco in Baja Verapaz reported: “There live in the mountains very big, wild men, completely clothed in short, thick, brown, hairy fur, with no necks, small eyes, long arms and huge hands. They leave footprints twice the length of a man’s.” “it looked like a bear, but it wasn’t from the description that they gave—no conspicuous ears, no ‘snout’” Similar creatures are reported in Guatemala, where, it has been said, they kidnap women and children
From the eastern slopes of the Andes in Ecuador come reports of the Shiru, a small fur-covered hominidlike creature, about 4 to 5 feet tall (Sanderson 1961, p. 166). In Brazil, people tell of the large apelike Mapinguary, which leaves giant humanlike footprints and is said to kill cattle.
Yeti: Wildmen of The Himalayas
Myra Shackley observed that Yeti are found in Nepalese and Tibetan religious paintings depicting hierarchies of living beings.
“Here, bears, apes, and langurs are depicted separate from the wildman, suggesting there is no confusion (at least in the minds of the artists) between these forms.”
After reviewing the available reports, Ivan Sanderson compiled the following composite description of the Yeti:
“Somewhat larger than man-sized and much more sturdy, with short legs and long arms; clothed in long rather shaggy fur or hair, same length all over and not differentiated. Naked face and other parts jet black; bull-neck and small conical head with heavy browridges; fanged canine teeth; can drop hands to ground and stand on knuckles like gorilla. Heel very wide and foot almost square and very large, second toe longer and larger than first, and both these separated and semi-opposed to the remaining three which are very small and webbed.”
In November of 1951, Eric Shipton, while reconnoitering the approaches to Mt. Everest, found footprints on the Menlung glacier, near the border between Tibet and Nepal, at an elevation of 18,000 feet. Shipton followed the trail for a mile. Already well known as a mountaineer, Shipton could not easily be accused of publicity-seeking. A close-up photograph of one of the prints has proved convincing to many. In 1956, Professor E. S. Williams photographed some prints on the Biafo glacier in the Karakoram mountains. Napier, who thought it likely that they were the superimposed prints of the front and rear paws of a bear, said
“It is impossible to state categorically that Williams’s prints are those of a bear and not of a Yeti, but in the spirit of Bishop of Ockham it seems more reasonable to explain a phenomenon in terms of the known rather than the unknown.”
Of course, in avoiding the relatively straightforward explanation that a peculiar set of tracks in snow was made by an unknown animal, one is forced to come up with all kinds of speculative hypotheses about the superimposition of prints of various animals and humans, or the transformation of such prints by melting, in a manner not clearly understood. And this would also appear to be a violation of a key aspect of Ockham’s razor—namely, that the simplest of competing theories is preferable to the more complex.
Some Buddhist monasteries claim to have physical remains of the Yeti. One category of such relics is Yeti scalps, but the ones studied by Western scientists are thought to have been made from the skins of known animals. In 1960, Sir Edmund Hillary mounted an expedition to collect and evaluate evidence for the Yeti and sent a Yeti scalp from the Khumjung monastery to the West for testing. The results indicated that the scalp had been manufactured from the skin of the serow, a goatlike Himalayan antelope. But some disagreed with this analysis. Shackley said they
“pointed out that hairs from the scalp look distinctly monkey-like, and that it contains parasitic mites of a species different from that recovered from the serow.”
In 1978, Lord Hunt, who headed the British Mt. Everest expedition of 1953, saw Yeti tracks and heard the high-pitched cry the Yeti is said to make. Lord Hunt, described by Shackley as “a vigorous champion of the Yeti,” had come upon similar tracks in 1953. In both 1953 and 1978, the tracks were found at altitudes of 15,000 to 20,000 feet, too high for the either the black or red bears of the Himalayas.
It is interesting to note that science has recognized the existence of many fossil species on the strength of their footprints alone. The hypotheses and reconstructions of cryptozoology (regarding animals actually alive) are no more daring, questionable, fantastic, or illegitimate than those upon which paleontology has based its reconstructions of the fauna of past ages.
The Almas of Central Asia
There is another wildman, the Almas, which seems smaller and more human. A drawing of an Almas is found in a nineteenth-century Mongol compendium of medicines derived from various plants and animals. The text next to the picture reads:
“The wildman lives in the mountains, his origins close to that of the bear, his body resembles that of man, and he has enormous strength. His meat may be eaten to treat mental diseases and his gall cures jaundice” Reports of the Almas are concentrated in an area extending from Mongolia in the north, south through the Pamirs, and then westward into the Caucasus region. Similar reports come from Siberia and the far northeast parts of the Russian republic.
Early in the fifteenth century, Hans Schiltenberger wrote in his book of the Tien Shan mountain range in Mongolia: “The inhabitants say that beyond the mountains is the beginning of a wasteland which lies at the edge of the earth. No one can survive there because the desert is populated by so many snakes and tigers. In the mountains themselves live wild people, who have nothing in common with other human beings. A pelt covers the entire body of these creatures. Only the hands and face are free of hair. They run around in the hills like animals and eat foliage and grass and whatever else they can find. The lord of the territory made Egidi a present of a couple of forest people, a man and a woman. They had been caught in the wilderness, together with three untamed horses the size of asses and all sorts of other animals which are not found in German lands and which I cannot therefore put a name to”
Myra Shackley found Schiltenberger’s account especially credible for two reasons:
“First, Schiltenberger reports that he saw the creatures with his own eyes. Secondly, he refers to Przewalski horses, which were only rediscovered by Nicholai Przewalski in 1881. Przewalski himself saw ‘wildmen’ in Mongolia in 1871.”
Shackley noted:
“The book contains thousands of illustrations of various classes of animals, but not one single mythological animal such as are known from similar medieval European books. All the creatures are living and observable today.”
The Pamir mountains, lying in a remote region where the borders of Tadzhikistan, China, Kashmir, and Afghanistan meet, have been the scene of many Almas sightings. In 1925, Mikhail Stephanovitch Topilski, a major-general in the Soviet army, led his unit in an assault on an anti-Soviet guerilla force hiding in a cave in the Pamirs. One of the surviving guerillas said that while in the cave he and his comrades were attacked by several apelike creatures. The body of one such creature was found.
“It was covered with hair all over. But I knew there were no apes in the Pamirs. Also, the body itself looked very much like that of a man. We tried pulling the hair, to see if it was just a hide used for disguise, but found that it was the creature’s own natural hair. We turned the body over several times on its back and its front, and measured it. Our doctor made a long and thorough inspection of the body, and it was clear that it was not a human being. The body belonged to a male creature 165–170 cm [about 5½ feet] tall, elderly or even old, judging by the greyish colour of the hair in several places. The chest was covered with brownish hair and the belly with greyish hair. The hair was longer but sparser on the chest and close-cropped and thick on the belly. In general the hair was very thick, without any underfur. There was least hair on the buttocks, from which fact our doctor deduced that the creature sat like a human being. There was most hair on the hips. The knees were completely bare of hair and had callous growths on them. The whole foot including the sole was quite hairless and was covered by hard brown skin. The hair got thinner near the hand, and the palms had none at all but only callous skin.”
“The colour of the face was dark, and the creature had neither beard nor moustache. The temples were bald and the back of the head was covered by thick, matted hair. The dead creature lay with its eyes open and its teeth bared. The eyes were dark and the teeth were large and even and shaped like human teeth. The forehead was slanting and the eyebrows were very powerful. The protruding jawbones made the face resemble the Mongol type of face. The nose was flat, with a deeply sunk bridge. The ears were hairless and looked a little more pointed than a human being’s with a longer lobe. The lower jaw was very massive. The creature had a very powerful chest and well developed muscles. The arms were of normal length, the hands were slightly wider and the feet much wider and shorter than man’s.”
According to testimony from villagers of Tkhina, on the Mokvi River, a female Almas was captured there during the nineteenth century, in the forests of Mt. Zaadan. For three years, she was kept imprisoned, but then became domesticated and was allowed to live in a house. She was called Zana. (artists impression) “Her skin was a greyish-black colour, covered with reddish hair, longer on her head than elsewhere. She was capable of inarticulate cries but never developed a language. She had a large face with big cheek bones, muzzle-like prognathous jaw and large eyebrows, big white teeth and a ‘fierce expression.’” Eventually Zana, through sexual relations with a villager, had children. Some of Zana’s grandchildren were seen by Boris Porshnev in 1964. “The grandchildren, Chalikoua and Taia, had darkish skin of rather negroid appearance, with very prominent chewing muscles and extra strong jaws.”
Was 19th Century apewoman a yeti? 6ft 6in Russian serf who could outrun a horse was 'not human', according to DNA tests
In 1899, K. A. Satunin, a Russian zoologist, spotted a female Biaban-guli in the Talysh hills of the southern Caucasus. He stated that the creature had “fully human movements” (Shackley 1983, p. 109). The fact that Satunin was a well-known zoologist makes his report particularly significant.
Wildmen of China
“Chinese historical documents, and many city and town annals, contain abundant records of Wildman, which are given various names,”
states Zhou Guoxing of the Beijing Museum of Natural History. Two thousand years ago, the poet-statesman Qu Yuan made many references to Shangui (mountain ogres) in his verses. Li Yanshow, a historian who lived during the T’Ang Dynasty (a.d. 618–907), stated that the forests of Hubei province sheltered a band of wildmen. Wildmen also appeared in the writings of Li Shizhen, a pharmacologist of the Ming Dynasty (a.d. 1368–1644). In the fifty-first volume of his massive work on medical ingredients, he described several species of humanoid creatures, including one named Fei-fei.
Li wrote:
“‘Feifei,’ which are called ‘manbear,’ are also found in the mountainous areas in west Shu and Chu division, where people skin them and eat their palms. The You mountain of Sha county, Fujian province, sees the same ones, standing about one zhang (equal to 3.1 meters [ just over 10 feet]) in height and smiling to the people they come across, and are called ‘shandaren’ (men as big as mountains), ‘wildmen,’ or ‘shanxiao’”.
In the eighteenth century, the Chinese poet Yuan Mei made reference to strange creatures inhabiting the wild regions of Shanxi province, calling them “monkeylike, yet not monkeylike”
According to Zhou:
“Even today, in the area of Fang County, Hubei Province, there are still legends about ‘maoren’ (hairy men) or ‘wildmen.’ A local chronicle, about 200 years old, says that ‘the Fang mountain lying 40 li (2 li equals one kilometer [.62 mile]) south to the county town is precipitous and full of holes, where live many maoren, about one zhang high and hair-coated. They often come down to eat human beings and chickens and dogs, and seize those who fight with them.’A lantern on which there is an ornament of a ‘maoren’ figure was unearthed in this area during an archaeological excavation. It has been dated at 2,000 years”
In 1940, Wang Zelin, a graduate of the biology department of Northwestern University in Chicago, was able to directly see a wildman shortly after it was shot to death by hunters. Wang was driving from Baoji, in Shanxi Province, to Tianshui, in Gansu Province, when he heard gunfire ahead of him. He got out of the car to satisfy his curiosity and saw a corpse. It was a female creature, six and a half feet tall and covered with a coat of thick greyish-red hair about one and a quarter inches long. The hair on its face was shorter. The cheek bones were prominent, and the lips jutted out. The hair on the head was about one foot long. According to Wang, the creature looked like a reconstruction of the Chinese Homo erectus.
Ten years later, another scientist, Fun Jinquan, a geologist, saw some living wildmen. Zhou Guoxing stated: “With the help of local guides, he watched, at a safe distance, two local Wildmen in the mountain forest near Baoji County, Shanxi Province, in the spring of 1950. They were mother and son, the smaller one being 1.6 meters in height. Both looked human”
In 1961, workers building a road through the heavily forested Xishuang Banna region of Yunnan province in southernmost China reported killing a humanlike female primate. The creature was 1.2–1.3 meters (about 4 feet) tall and covered with hair. It walked upright, and according to the eyewitness reports, its hands, ears, and breasts were like those of a female human. The Chinese Academy of Sciences sent a team to investigate, but they were not able to obtain any physical evidence. Some suggested that the workers had come upon a gibbon. But Zhou Guoxing stated:
“The present author recently visited a newsman who took part in that investigation. He stated that the animal which had been killed was not a gibbon, but an unknown animal of human shape. It is worth noting that, over the past 2 years or so, some people in the western border areas of Yunnan Province say that the above-mentioned kind of Wildman still move about, and that another one has since been killed”
Consider the case of Pang Gensheng, a local commune leader, who was confronted in the forest by a wildman. Pang, who stood face to face with the creature, said;
“He was about seven feet tall, with shoulders wider than a man’s, a sloping forehead, deep-set eyes and a bulbous nose with slightly upturned nostrils. He had sunken cheeks, ears like a man’s but bigger, and round eyes, also bigger than a man’s. His jaw jutted out and he had protruding lips. His front teeth were as broad as a horse’s. His eyes were black. His hair was dark brown, more than a foot long and hung loosely over his shoulders. His whole face, except for the nose and ears, was covered with short hairs. His arms hung down to below his knees. He had big hands with fingers about six inches long and thumbs only slightly separated from the fingers. He didn’t have a tail and the hair on his body was short. He had thick thighs, shorter than the lower part of his leg. He walked upright with his legs apart. His feet were each about 12 inches long and half that broad—broader in front and narrow behind, with splayed toes”
Wildmen of Malaysia And Indonesia
In 1969, John McKinnon, who journeyed to Borneo to observe orangutans, came across some humanlike footprints. McKinnon asked his Malay boatman what made them.
“Without a moment’s hesitation he replied ‘Batutut,’” wrote McKinnon, “but when I asked him to describe the beast he said it was not an animal but a type of ghost. Batutut, he told me, is about four feet tall, walks upright like a man and has a long black mane. Like other spirits of the forest the creature is very shy of light and fire”
Later, in Malaya, McKinnon saw some casts of footprints even bigger than those he had seen in Borneo, but he recognized them as definitely having been made by the same kind of creature. The Malayans called it Orangpendek (short fellow). McKinnon stated:
“Again natives spoke of a creature with long hair, who walks upright like a man. Drawings and even photographs of similar footprints found in Sumatra are attributed to the Sedapa or Umang, a small, shy, long-haired, bipedal being living deep in the forest” (Green 1978, pp. 134 –135). According to Ivan Sanderson, these footprints differ from those of the anthropoid apes inhabiting the Indonesian forests (the gibbon, siamang, and orangutan). They are also distinct from those of the sun bear (Sanderson 1961, p. 219).
In a journal article about wildmen published in 1918, Westenek recorded a report from a Mr. Oostingh, who lived in Sumatra. Once while proceeding through the forest, he came upon a man sitting on a log and facing away from him. Oostingh stated:
“I saw that he had short hair, cut short, I thought; and I suddenly realised that his neck was oddly leathery and extremely filthy. ‘That chap’s got a very dirty and wrinkled neck!’ I said to myself. His body was as large as a medium-sized native’s and he had thick square shoulders, not sloping at all. . . . he seemed to be quite as tall as I (about 5 feet 9 inches). Then I saw that it was not a man.” “It was not an orang-utan,” declared Oostingh. “I had seen one of these large apes a short time before.”
What was the creature if not an orangutan? Oostingh could not say for sure:
“It was more like a monstrously large siamang, but a siamang has long hair, and there was no doubt that it had short hair”
Mainstream Science and Wildman Reports
Despite all the evidence we have presented, most recognized authorities in anthropology and zoology decline to discuss the existence of wildmen. If they mention wildmen at all, they rarely present the really strong evidence for their existence, focusing instead on the reports least likely to challenge their disbelief.
Hand and foot bones of wildmen, and even a head, have been collected. Competent persons report having examined bodies of wildmen. And there are also a number of accounts of capture. That none of this physical evidence has made its way into museums and other scientific institutions may be taken as a failure of the process for gathering and preserving evidence. The operation of what we could call a knowledge filter tends to keep evidence tinged with disrepute outside official channels.
However, some scientists with solid reputations, such as Krantz, Napier, Shackley, Porshnev, and others, have found in the available evidence enough reason to conclude that wildmen do in fact exist, or, at least, that the question of their existence is worthy of serious study.
Myra Shackley wrote to our researcher Steve Bernath on December 4, 1984:
“As you know, this whole question is highly topical, and there has been an awful lot of correspondence and publication flying around on the scene. Opinions vary, but I guess that the commonest would be that there is indeed sufficient evidence to suggest at least the possibility of the existence of various unclassified manlike creatures, but that in the present state of our knowledge it is impossible to comment on their significance in any more detail. The position is further complicated by misquotes, hoaxing, and lunatic fringe activities, but a surprising number of hardcore anthropologists seem to be of the opinion that the matter is very worthwhile investigating.”

Trump’s war on the intelligence community: 10 days under an authoritarian administration

I wrote a stand-alone piece covering the biggest news from last week: Over the past 10 days, we've seen Trump fully indulge his authoritarian impulses in an attempt to stamp out any inkling of facts that he dislikes - whether that be for personal, egocentric reasons or to shore up political strength. This began with a briefing given to the House Intelligence Committee that Russia is seeking to re-elect Trump. In response, Trump purged the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of officials he perceived to be disloyal, installing loyalists in their place.
Also covered: how Trump gets away with a cabinet full of acting officials, Richard Grenell’s numerous dis-qualifications, a pardon offered to Julian Assange, and the hunt for “Never Trumpers” in the administration.

Sunday night update

On Sunday, Trump made a veiled threat toward House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff while claiming without evidence that the Democrat had leaked information from the Russia briefing on Feb. 13: “Somebody please tell incompetent (thanks for my high poll numbers) & corrupt politician Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff to stop leaking Classified information or, even worse, made up information, to the Fake News Media. Someday he will be caught, & that will be a very unpleasant experience!” tweet
Later, while speaking to reporters, Trump called for an investigation into the leak - more concerned about the public learning of the briefing than he is about Russia’s repeated interference in U.S. elections. “They leaked it, Adam Schiff and his group. They leaked it to the papers and - as usual - they ought to investigate Adam Schiff for leaking that information,” Trump said.
Schiff responded: “Nice deflection, Mr. President. But your false claims fool no one. You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020.”

Pardon-palooza

Authoritarians also dispense largesse, but they do it by their own whims, rather than pursuant to any system or legal rule. The point of authoritarianism is to concentrate power in the ruler, so the world knows that all actions, good and bad, harsh and generous, come from a single source. (The New Yorker)
Last week, Trump granted pardons and commutations to 11 people with one thing in common: connections. Trump bypassed the process of formal procedures typically used to determine who is given a pardon, instead relying on connections to his wealthy friends and political allies.
  • Former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted of soliciting bribes from candidates to replace Barack Obama in the Senate after Obama was elected president, knew Trump personally from his appearance on The Celebrity Apprentice. Trump falsely claimed that former FBI Director James Comey was involved in Blagojevich's prosecution; Comey did not take over at the FBI until years after the Blagojevich case.
    • Illinois' entire GOP congressional delegation—Darin LaHood, John Shimkus, Adam Kinzinger, Rodney Davis, and Mike Bost: "Blagojevich is the face of public corruption in Illinois, and not once has he shown any remorse for his clear and documented record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by voters...Blagojevich is the face of public corruption in Illinois, and not once has he shown any remorse for his clear and documented record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by voters." (source)
  • Former San Francisco 49ers team owner Eddie DeBartolo, who was convicted of “failing to report a felony” in 1998 after he paid a $400,000 bribe for a casino license, was pardoned as a result of the lobbying of New England Patriots owner and frequent Mar-a-Lago guest Robert Kraft.
  • Michael Milken, the so-called junk bond king who was convicted in 1990 of securities and tax fraud, knew Trump personally and frequently spent time with him at Mar-a-Lago. In his first memoir, Trump called Milken “a brilliant guy.” Many of Trump’s inner circle also lobbied for a pardon for Milken, including Rudy Giuliani, Jared Kushner, Steven Mnuchin, and developer friends Howard Lorber and Richard LeFrak. In fact, last year Mnuchin “flew on Mr. Milken’s private jet from Washington to Los Angeles and helped secure a real estate tax break that could benefit Mr. Milken.” A key backer of Milken’s pardon, hedge fund manager (and executive of Wendy’s) Nelson Peltz, held a record-breaking fundraiser for Trump’s re-election campaign at his home just 3 days before Milken was pardoned.
    • John K. Carroll: “As one of the lead prosecutors on the Milken case, I am outraged — not at the specific result here but at what the pardon process says about the way justice is served in our country...What outrages me, and what I think should outrage others, is the process that brought about the pardon. In as guileless an admission as I have ever seen of rich man’s justice, the White House bolstered its decision by listing a murderer’s row of Republican donors and billionaires who provided “widespread and long-standing” support for Milken’s pardon. Sheldon Adelson, Tom Barrack, my old boss Giuliani and others are listed as supporters of the pardon. If I had to prove that the scales of justice tilt toward the rich, I would offer that list and then sit down and wait for the jury to convict.”
  • Former New York City police commissioner Bernie Kerik, who was convicted in 2009 of lying to federal investigators and committing tax fraud, knew Trump personally and had Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera sign a letter on his behalf requesting a pardon from the president. In 2004, Trump called Kerik “a friend of mine” and “a great guy.” Rudy Giuliani also supported the request, as Kerik once served as a senior vice president at Giuliani Partners.
    • "The pardon cancels out $103,300 in restitution that Kerik still owed the Internal Revenue Service as part of his sentence, according to a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan." (source)
  • Paul Pogue, a construction company owner who pleaded guilty to underpaying his taxes by $473,000, did not know Trump and did not have any Fox News personalities lobby on his behalf. Instead, Pogue’s family appears to have purchased a presidential pardon. Pogue’s son and daughter-in-law made over $200,000 in contributions to the Trump Victory Committee last year. The couple also made several large donations to the Republican National Committee and each donated $5,600 to Donald Trump for President Inc.,” according to FEC filings.

Roger Stone going to prison

Perhaps not coincidentally, Trump’s pardoning of corrupt public officials like Blagojevich occurred just two days before Roger Stone’s sentencing for lying to investigators, obstructing a congressional investigation, and witness tampering. Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Stone to 40 months - or 3.3 years - in prison, much lighter than the original 7-9 year sentencing recommendation made by career prosecutors who withdrew from the case in protest of AG Barr’s intervention.
Lawfare has a great line-by-line breakdown of the sentencing hearing, if you’d like the nitty-gritty details. But if you only have time to read one excerpt from the hearing, I suggest the following:
Judge Jackson: “The truth still exists. The truth still matters. Roger Stone's insistence that it doesn't, his belligerence, his pride in his own lies are a threat to our most fundamental institutions, to the very foundation of our democracy...The dismay and the disgust at the attempts by others to defend his actions as just business as usual in our polarized climate should transcend party. The dismay and the disgust with any attempts to interfere with the efforts of prosecutors and members of the judiciary to fulfill their duty should transcend party.
"Sure, the defense is free to say: So what? Who cares? But, I'll say this: Congress cared. The United States Department of Justice and the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia that prosecuted the case and is still prosecuting the case cared. The jurors who served with integrity under difficult circumstances cared. The American people cared. And I care."
Judge Jackson pushes back
During the hearing, Judge Jackson said that the jurors in the case "served with integrity." Stone’s lawyers took this statement and moved to disqualify the judge from the case, claiming that her remarks “rendered her unable to fairly rule on his bid for a new trial.”
"Stone’s Motion for New Trial is directly related to the integrity of a juror. It is alleged that a juror misled the Court regarding her ability to be unbiased and fair and the juror attempted to cover up evidence that would directly contradict her false claims of impartiality," his lawyers argued.
"The premature statement blessing the “integrity of the jury” undermines the appearance of impartiality and presents a strong bias for recusal," they added.
As expected, Jackson denied the motion to have her disqualified...
A pardon for Stone?
But the goal may be to reach the ears of the president instead. According to Politico, a former senior administration official who remains in contact with Trump and his senior advisers says about a pardon for Roger Stone: “It’s not a question of if; it’s when.” Following the sentencing, Trump argued that Stone’s jury was “tainted” and said that “Roger has a very good chance of exoneration.”
On Sunday, Trump was asked about the possibility of a pardon for Stone and instead took the opportunity to attack the jury forewoman, again:
"That juror is so biased and so tainted, that shouldn't happen in our criminal justice system… You have a juror that is obviously tainted. She was an activist against Trump. She said bad things about Trump and bad things about Stone," the President claimed without evidence. "She somehow weaseled her way onto the jury and if that's not a tainted jury then there is no such thing as a tainted jury."

More info on Stone’s lenient sentence

In the week since four prosecutors withdrew from Stone’s case in protest of AG Barr’s interference, we have gotten a slow drip-drip of new information. A piece by The New York Times Sunday summed it up nicely: Timothy Shea, appointed to replace Jessie Liu as head D.C. attorney, was sent to the office specifically to steer cases to the president’s benefit after previous efforts failed.
A new boss, Timothy Shea, had just arrived and had told them on his first day that he wanted a more lenient recommendation for Mr. Stone, and he pushed back hard when they objected, according to two people briefed on the dispute. They grew suspicious that Mr. Shea was helping his longtime friend and boss, Attorney General William P. Barr, soften the sentencing request to please the president.
...The tensions between the office, the Justice Department and the White House date back further than the tumult in the Stone case. They have been simmering since at least last summer, when the office’s investigation of Andrew G. McCabe, a former top F.B.I. official whom the president had long targeted, began to fall apart.
Mr. Shea’s predecessor, Jessie K. Liu, a lawyer whom Mr. Trump had appointed to lead the office in 2017, pressed the McCabe case even after one team of prosecutors concluded that they could not win a conviction. After a second team was brought in and also failed to deliver a grand jury indictment, Ms. Liu’s relationship with Mr. Barr grew strained, people close to them said. She left the position this year, though she and Mr. Barr have both stressed to associates that her departure was amicable.

Undoing Mueller’s work

Trump’s efforts to derail the sentencing of Stone can be seen as part of a larger campaign to rewrite history, and specifically, erase the findings of the Mueller investigation. Roger Stone’s indictment shows that Stone was acting on Trump's personal order to find Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails stolen by Russia. In order to cover-up his role in the Russia-Wikileaks-Trump network, Stone lied to investigators and threatened a witness. By claiming that Stone did not commit a crime, Trump is attempting to reverse the findings of the Mueller report and make himself the victim.
Last week, Trump embarked on a rambling Twitter thread calling for all cases stemming from Mueller’s probe to be “thrown out.” He continued, saying: “If I wasn’t President, I’d be suing everyone all over the place.......BUT MAYBE I STILL WILL. WITCH HUNT!”
Hours later, while discussing the spate of pardons he had issued that day, Trump made the astounding assertion that he is “the chief law enforcement officer of the country” and thus has the “legal right” to interfere in criminal cases. “I’m allowed to be totally involved,” the president added. While technically he is incorrect - the Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer - in practice Trump has been proven right. A lawless chief executive is in fact in charge of enforcing the law when the Attorney General acts as his personal fixer.
This is in the style of autocrats across the globe, who weaponize the law to help themselves and their friends and hurt their enemies. The nation’s legal system is now run by a man who has spent his life mocking it. (NYT Editorial Board)
Meanwhile, the president’s allies have reportedly been urging him to fire anyone who was involved in Mueller’s investigation:
The MAGA punditry’s outsized influence over the president means their campaign against the so-called Mueller “holdovers” is likely not falling on deaf ears, especially given Trump’s fixation with what his defenders and detractors are saying about his administration in their frequent appearances on his favorite TV programs.
“It's totally unclear to me why any members of the Mueller team need to remain in the Trump DOJ,” the pro-Trump conservative blogger Will Chamberlain wrote after news broke of the Stone sentencing recommendation.
...GOP operative Arthur Schwartz, a close friend of Donald Trump Jr. who has been described as the eldest son’s “fixer,” said of the career officials in question: “I think they should all be investigated.”
...John Dowd, a former Trump lawyer who remains in touch with the White House, characterized the line attorneys in the Stone case as “insubordinate,” and “the same crowd of prosecutors wedded to the Mueller agenda” who need to be “cleaned out” from DOJ. “And Bill Barr is doing that,” Dowd said.
What can be done about the politicization of the DOJ? In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Cass Sunstein of Harvard Law School suggests that “Congress should transform the Justice Department into an independent agency, legally immunized from the president’s day-to-day control.”

Public charge rule takes effect

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 to allow the government to implement new “wealth test” rules making it easier to deny immigrants residency or admission to the United States if they might depend on public-assistance programs. Legal challenges will continue in lower courts in the meantime. Doug Rand, co-founder of Boundless Immigration who formerly worked on immigration policy in the Obama White House, estimates that as many as 400,000 people every year could be denied green cards or visas because of the new rules.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor filed a written dissent that was sharply critical of both the federal government and her conservative colleagues, warning that they are “putting a thumb on the scale in favor of” the Trump administration. Read her full seven-page dissent here.
The justice wrote that granting emergency applications often upends "the normal appellate process" while "putting a thumb on the scale in favor of the party that won." Targeting her conservative colleagues, she said "most troublingly, the Court's recent behavior" has benefited "one litigant over all others."
"Claiming one emergency after another, the Government has recently sought stays in an unprecedented number of cases," Sotomayor said. "It is hard to say what is more troubling," she said, pointing to the case at hand, "that the Government would seek this extraordinary relief seemingly as a matter of course, or that the Court would grant it." CNN

THE SIDES

Justice Department’s new rules benefit Giuliani

In a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, the DOJ indicated that the agency has implemented another layer of approval that would make it difficult for prosecutors to widen their probe into Rudy Giuliani:
The Justice Department revealed Tuesday that law enforcement officials running Ukraine-related investigations must seek approval before expanding their inquiries — a move that could have implications for Rudolph W. Giuliani, as President Trump’s personal attorney pushes for scrutiny of the president’s political foes while facing a federal probe into his own conduct.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd wrote to Nadler that the department had tapped two U.S. attorneys to assist in the process — Scott Brady in Pittsburgh to receive and assess new information, and Richard Donoghue in Brooklyn to help coordinate personnel throughout the Justice Department involved in Giuliani’s case and others with a focus on Ukraine. An accompanying internal memo, circulated by Rosen in January, says that he and Donoghue must approve expansions of any inquiries.

Related: The Hill admits John Solomon’s columns were misleading

The Hill’s review of Solomon’s work can be found here. I have found the review itself to be overly generous to the publication (no surprise), so I will quote from a WaPo summary of the review:
In effect, the Hill said Solomon amplified an inaccurate and one-sided narrative about the Bidens and Ukraine that was fed to him by Giuliani, “facilitated” by businessman Lev Parnas, who was working with Giuliani at the time, and reinforced by Solomon’s own attorneys, who also represented clients embroiled in U.S.-Ukraine politics.
But the Hill stopped short of retracting or apologizing for Solomon’s articles, nor did it say it shouldn’t have published them. It also didn’t characterize Solomon’s motives in presenting what appears to be a largely debunked conspiracy theory about Ukraine.
“In certain columns, Solomon failed to identify important details about key Ukrainian sources, including the fact that they had been indicted or were under investigation,” said the internal investigation, which was overseen by the newspaper’s editor, Bob Cusack. “In other cases, the sources were [Solomon’s] own attorneys” — Victoria Toensing and Joseph DiGenova, who have also represented President Trump and Giuliani, who was also a key source for Solomon’s columns.
Solomon didn’t disclose this connection in his columns nor did he disclose to his editors that he shared drafts of his stories with Toensing, DiGenova and Parnas, the review noted.

Trump tries to block Bolton book

The Washington Post reports that Trump is attempting to block the release of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s book, instructing aides that it should not be released until after the November election.
Trump has told his lawyers that Bolton should not be allowed to publish any of his interactions with him about national security because they are privileged and classified, these people said. He has also repeatedly brought up the book with his team, asking whether Bolton is going to be able to publish it, they said.
Trump told national television anchors on Feb. 4 during an off-the-record lunch that material in the book was “highly classified,” according to notes from one participant in the luncheon. He then called him a “traitor.”
“We’re going to try and block the publication of the book,” Trump said, according to the notes. “After I leave office, he can do this. But not in the White House...I give the guy a break. I give him a job. And then he turns on me,” Trump added during the West Wing lunch. “He’s just making things up.”

Susan Rice tells Bolton the truth

During a panel discussion at Vanderbilt University on Wednesday, Bolton shared the stage with Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice. Bolton made excuses for his failure to testify in Trump’s impeachment trial, blaming the House for committing “impeachment malpractice.” Rice challenged Bolton repeatedly, denigrating his decision to promote his book instead of testify:
"I thought a lot about if I had been in that position how would I have approached it, and I'll be honest: It's inconceivable to me that if I had firsthand knowledge of gross abuse of presidential power that I would withhold my testimony from a constitutional accountability process.”
"I can't imagine withholding my testimony, with or without a subpoena," Rice said. "I also can't imagine, frankly, in the absence of being able to provide the information directly to Congress, not having exercised my First Amendment right to speak publicly at a time when my testimony or my experience would be relevant. And, frankly, when my subordinates ... were doing their duty and responding in a fashion consistent with their legal obligations to provide information."
"I would feel like I was shamefully violating the oath that I took to support and defend the Constitution."

Trump corruption update

President Donald Trump’s choice to stay at his own Las Vegas hotel each night during the western states swing that wraps up Friday likely cost taxpayers a million extra dollars as well as diverted thousands of them into his own cash registers.
Breaking with precedent, Trump flew back to Vegas to stay every night at his Trump International Hotel, despite his day activities taking place in California, Arizona, and Colorado.
Had Trump held the same events but done so in a geographically logical order ― starting in Beverly Hills and finishing in Colorado Springs, but overnighting each day in the city where he would begin the following morning ― Trump would have spent four fewer hours aboard Air Force One, thereby saving taxpayers about $1.1 million.
...Indeed, the repeated overnight trips to Las Vegas may have forced the Secret Service and other support personnel to keep a motorcade there for a full four days, rather than move it to the site of an upcoming presidential trip
This week, Trump has a whole new country to focus on: India, home to the largest portfolio of Trump real estate projects outside North America, according to the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. According to The Washington Post, since the elder Trump’s last trip to India in 2014, two of his business partners have encountered massive legal and financial trouble.
During Trump’s time as president, the Trump Organization has vigorously promoted their properties in India, earning millions of dollars in royalties:
In 2018, the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr. — who runs the Trump Organization with his brother, Eric Trump — spent several days in India promoting the family’s developments, attending a champagne dinner with condo buyers who plunked down $39,000 deposits and bringing in millions of dollars in new sales. While there, he also met with Modi behind closed doors. The next year, Trump’s Indian business partners flew 100 early buyers of his luxury condos near Delhi to visit Trump Tower and Trump Ferry Point golf course in New York City as a way to generate interest in the properties in India. One attendee gushed afterward about meeting the son of a U.S. president on the trip.

Trump 2020: Cambridge Analytica and Facebook

President Donald Trump’s campaign is bringing on an alum of the controversial data firm Cambridge Analytica...Matt Oczkowski, who served as head of product at Cambridge before it went bankrupt and shut down in 2018, is helping oversee the Trump campaign’s data program...Oczkowski, who also worked on Trump’s 2016 effort, joined the reelection campaign in January, and payments to his company, HuMn Behavior, are expected to show up on Trump’s next campaign finance disclosure later this month. (Politico)
An Axios report revealed where most of Trump’s re-election campaign is spending its advertising budget: on Facebook ads. “Last fall, the campaign urged Facebook to keep the same tools for political advertisers that they make available to companies...Facebook ultimately decided not to change its policies around microtargeting.” However, unlike in 2016, the campaign is also diversifying, “testing new strategies on several dozen platforms, including YouTube, Google, ad exchanges, publisher networks and conservative podcasts.”
  • Side note: The IRS is suing Facebook for $9 million in back taxes, alleging the social media company undervalued intellectual properties when selling them to an Irish subsidiary in 2010. Ireland has lower corporate tax rates than the United States, so the move reduced the company’s tax bill.

Erik Prince investigations

There is apparently another investigation into Blackwater Founder - and brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos - Erik Prince. The FBI is reportedly investigating Prince “for his 2015 attempt to modify two American-made crop-dusting planes into attack aircraft — a violation of arms trafficking regulations...The planes became part of private military services Prince proposed to sell or use in mercenary operations in Africa and Azerbaijan.”
This new investigation adds to Prince’s legal problems, though he insists that he is untouchable “under this guy,” referring to Trump. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Justice Department is “in the late stages of deciding whether to charge” Prince for allegedly lying to Congress in its Russia probe and violating U.S. export laws in his business dealings overseas.

Trump blocking prominent climate change warning

The United States is against mentioning climate change in the communique of the world’s financial leaders, G20 diplomats said, after a new draft of the joint statement showed the G20 are considering including it as a risk factor to growth...G20 sources said the United States was reluctant to accept language on climate change as a risk to the economy. Reuters
On Sunday, it was announced that the U.S. ultimately agreed to a less-prominent placement for the risks of climate change. It will now appear in language referencing the Financial Stability Board’s work examining the implications of climate change for financial stability.
One of the G20 sources said it was the first time a reference to climate change had been included in a G20 finance communique during Trump’s presidency, even though it was removed from the top of the joint statement. U.S. officials have resisted naming climate change as an economic risk since Trump took office in 2017. One of his first acts as president was to announce Washington’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.

Rightwing threats

Last week, two men were arrested in separate incidents involving threats to President Trump’s perceived opponents.
A Michigan man, Brittan J. Atkinson, was arrested on Thursday for sending death threats to Mark Zaid, an attorney for the Ukraine whistleblower. Atkinson sent the threats in November, on the day that Trump held up a photo of Zaid and read some of his tweets at a rally in Louisiana.
"All traitors must die miserable deaths," Atkinson's email read in part, the indictment says. "Those that represent traitors shall meet the same fate[.] We will hunt you down and bleed you out like the pigs you are. We have nothing but time, and you are running out of it, Keep looking over your shoulder[.] We know who you are, where you live, and who you associate with[.] We are all strangers in a crowd to you[.]"
On Wednesday, Salvatore Lippa of New York was arrested for threatening to assault and murder Rep. Adam Schiff and Sen. Chuck Schumer in voicemails last month.
Lippa started the threatening message by calling the congressman "Schiff, Shifty Schiff," invoking the nickname used by President Donald Trump for Schiff, the lead House manager during Trump's impeachment trial.
...When questioned by U.S Capitol Police, Lippa admitted to making the threatening calls to Schiff and Schumer because he said he was upset about the impeachment proceedings, prosecutors said.

State news

  • Washington Post: A second court has temporarily blocked North Carolina’s new voter identification law on the argument that it discriminates against African Americans. The ruling reduces the likelihood that the rule will be in effect in a key swing state during November’s elections. A three-judge panel of the North Carolina Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that intent to discriminate was a “primary motivating factor” behind the voter ID law, which passed the Republican legislature in late 2018.
  • CBS News: Florida cannot bar felons who served their time from registering to vote simply because they have failed to pay all fines and fees stemming from their cases, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
  • CNN: Mississippi's law banning abortions at the detection of a fetal heartbeat -- as early as six weeks into pregnancy -- will remain blocked, a panel of circuit judges ruled on Thursday...The three-judge panel on the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court's ruling that the Mississippi law unconstitutionally prohibited pre-viability abortions.
  • Tampa Bay Times: A curious request arrived in the inboxes of Florida tax collectors last week from an employee of the Republican National Committee. He asked for “all email addresses that have been collected and are in the possession of the Tax Collector’s Office.” He also wanted any names, property addresses and phone numbers connected to those emails in their records. If the tax collectors had complied, the Republican Party would soon have a valuable trove of personal information for millions of Floridians as it gears up for the 2020 election: A detailed database of many taxpayers’ emails plus the name, address and phone number tied to that email.
  • Associated Press: Most Republican lawmakers refused to attend a Tuesday night session of the Oregon House of Representatives amid a slowdown over anger at a sweeping bill on climate change. Earlier, Republican lawmakers, who are a minority in the House, insisted that bills coming to the floor be read in their entirety instead of being summarized, which slowed things down substantially. The 2020 session of the Legislature lasts only 35 days, being an even-year short session.
  • Q13 Fox News: Efforts to expel a controversial state representative from the Washington Legislature are likely over after no Republicans would sign a letter calling for state Rep. Matt Shea’s expulsion. The Spokesman-Review reports that all 98 members of the state House of Representatives were asked Thursday to sign a letter calling for the expulsion of Spokane Valley Republican. All 56 Democrats signed the letter, but no Republicans did.

2020.01.08 16:36 BellevueNews The remarkable 16-year run of a forgotten (and beloved) Northwest radio series

From an RSS feed
Stories about Northwest history on the radio are nothing new. There’s just something about scratchy old recordings and tales of long ago – often set in damp, evergreen-filled locales – that seem to be perfectly suited to the audio medium. I am biased, of course.
One long-forgotten series was sponsored for almost two decades by the Portland-based private utility once known as Pacific Power & Light.
And though it’s been off the air for more than 40 years, an Oregon man now in his 90s has vivid memories of writing the stories, and working closely with the storyteller, to share historical and other local tales over the airwaves for a series called “Stories of Pacific Powerland.”
The program aired as many as three times a week on stations all over the Northwest, and parts of Northern California and the Mountain West from 1961 to 1977. It was heard in Washington in Yakima and Walla Walla, where Pacific Power & Electric was the local electric company.
During the 16-year run of the show, there were more than 1,000 episodes produced, each about five minutes long, and each also serving, of course, as a gentle commercial for Pacific Power.
The genial host of “Stories of Pacific Powerland” was a sonorous-voiced actor named Nelson Olmsted. Olmsted had worked in radio, often reading dramatic or suspenseful stories on-air, since the 1930s. He began his career at a local station in Texas, and then moved to the big time at NBC in New York. Olmsted passed away in 1992 at age 78.
Tom Worcester was the researcher and writer of those “Pacific Powerland” stories for the last eight years of its run.
I think I did something like 650 of the stories,” Worcester said by phone recently from his home outside Portland. “It served quite an audience … I think there were six different states that it crossed.”
The show was a team effort, with Worcester researching and writing the scripts, with help from a research assistant. The format included an announcer, who helped introduce each story and who also delivered the commercial message for Pacific Power, or what more often was a public service announcement related to energy conservation or electrical safety.
Clint Gruber introduced them,” Worcester said, naming the smooth-voiced announcer, who also worked at Portland radio station KOIN for many years. “And Nelson Olmsted was the storyteller.”
“He was a marvelous guy,” Worcester said of the baritone tale-teller. “He just loved this show.”
Tom Worcester had a long career as a writer before and after “Stories of Pacific Powerland.” His best-known work, perhaps, is his collaboration with FBI agent Ralph Himmelsbach on the definitive book about the Northwest’s most infamous hijacking,“NORJAK: The Investigation of D.B. Cooper.” Worcester also wrote books about the history of Oregon and of his native Colorado.
The scripts that Worcester (and his predecessor John Forbis) wrote, were designed to showcase Nelson Olmsted’s talents as a narrator and radio actor. Topics ranged from the origins of glass fishing floats found by beachcombers on the Oregon Coast, to the time in the 1880s when the town of Yakima was moved four miles because of the whims of the railroad, to Native American legends behind the names of local places, to more current, non-historical stories about people doing interesting things in communities where Pacific Power was the electric company.
Roger Kim is president of the Radio Enthusiasts of Puget Sound and something of an expert on the old history program. He says that the narration style that Nelson Olmsted brought to “Pacific Powerland” episodes actually dated back a few decades to the earliest days of Olmsted’s career in broadcasting.
“Starting in 1939, [Nelson Olmsted] came upon this idea of a way to do very low-budget radio,” Kim said. “He would read classic stories on the air, and he would be the narrator and he would also do different voices for all the characters.”
This dramatic performance style, says Roger Kim, was ahead of its time.
“What he was doing was very similar to what a lot of audiobook narrators do today,” Kim said. “But back in the 1940s, it was highly unusual.”
By all accounts, Nelson Olmsted was a charming and charismatic performer. Worcester clearly enjoyed the years he spent with Olmsted writing and producing “Stories of Pacific Powerland.”
“It was just wonderful to work with him,” Worcester said, explaining how the two would produce episodes of the program several times each year in batches, recording the audio at a production house in Portland. “We would get about 70 stories ready, and then we’d line them all up and get them produced and start them on the air.”
Forty-plus years later, Worcester still is deeply touched by how much the audience seemed to love “Stories of Pacific Powerland.”
“I’ve talked to people who would tell me they used to … pull their car over on the side of the road and listen,” Worcester said. “It was that popular.”
Times change, of course, and “Stories of Pacific Powerland” came to an end in 1977, after what amounted to pretty remarkable 16-year run. Worcester isn’t bitter.
“It only stopped when the company got a new guy in who wanted to do something different … that’s sort of standard, to make a change,” he said, chuckling.
Roger Kim says that there were likely other contributing factors to the demise of “Pacific Powerland,” including changes to laws related to how much utilities were allowed to spend on marketing purposes. Kim is researching the series and the people involved for an academic journal article he’s working on.
“Pacific Powerland” wasn’t the only history series on the radio in the Northwest in the 1960s. Bellevue-based Puget Sound Power & Light (now PSE) sponsored a similar series in the early and mid 1960s, narrated by journalist and historian Nard Jones and called “Puget Sound Profiles.”
In earlier decades, Washington Water Power in Spokane sponsored “Trails of the Great Northwest,” a series of short radio dramas based on local history.
As announcer Clint Gruber used to say at the end of every episode: “Tune in next time, when Nelson Olmsted brings you another of his ‘Stories of Pacific Powerland.’ So long!”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Special thanks to Roger Kim for his help with this story, including sharing images and a complete episode of “Stories of Pacific Powerland,” and for connecting KIRO Radio with Tom Worcester.

2020.01.02 21:40 always_creating Ok, knock it off - Crime really is down.

I'm an independent data science researcher. Not affliated with the SPD, any news organization, or whatever. I've been tracking crime data in Spokane for years. I'm a Spokane resident and homeowner, and I've experienced being burgled and having to call Crime Check and everything that comes with it. Here's the deal - crime really is down. There is no data coverup conspiracy. People aren't just calling in less. If you don't believe me I'm going to show you the numbers. This is my public GitHub project, free for you to download and use:
https://github.com/tyjhart/spokanecrime/tree/masteweekly_watch
Unlike the reports from the SPD or news organization I'm giving you something reproducible - you get to see the work behind the numbers. Please use the data and prove me wrong. Make me correct my assumptions based on the raw data and present my revised findings - that's how science (and data science) works.
Here we go, first with old data from 2013-2016:
https://github.com/tyjhart/spokanecrime/tree/masteweekly_watch#legacy-data (scroll down a bit)
These are the CSV files you can open in Excel and look for yourself:
https://github.com/tyjhart/spokanecrime/tree/masteweekly_watch/csv_files/legacy
A different reporting standard was used in this timeframe, which is why it's in a separate dataset. You can see a downward trend over the course of three years, plus the seasonal spikes in summer. For those who think there's some big SPD data coverup, please explain to me who was maintaining a three year long, seasonally-adjusted data reporting conspiracy. Slice and dice the data in those CSV files - it looks like legit, random, and non-engineered data.
Now for the new data, from September 2017 onward. There is a small gap in the SPD's data, so that timeframe isn't included. I don't know why it hasn't been posted on the Spokane Compstat website, but I have a feeling it's to do with the changeover to the new, more standardized reporting system. Here's the up-to-date data:
https://github.com/tyjhart/spokanecrime/tree/masteweekly_watch#overall-statistics
Here are the text files you can parse out and analyze yourself, or just let my R code do it:
https://github.com/tyjhart/spokanecrime/tree/masteweekly_watch/csv_files
Again, there is a multi-year downward trend. The reduction in seasonal summer upticks corresponds with both increases in police hiring and changes in how police are deployed throughout Spokane. 2018's summer "surge" was low, and 2019's was even lower. Again, who is keeping this conspiracy running and consistent? They are damned good at cooking the numbers, because overall thefts (including shoplifting and burglary) follow the general downward trend, but in different ways.
For anyone who says, "Well, people just aren't calling in crime!", I have to wonder about a few things. First, auto insurance providers require a police report before paying out on a stolen vehicle claim. But theft of motor vehicle offenses are consistently down since 2017. Are people just saying, "screw it, I don't need that insurance money!"? Are these people across the entire city - with no coordination - just calling in less-and-less vehicle thefts in a remarkably consistent fashion?
Let's talk about a heinous crime - sexual assault. You can see the total offenses for 2017, 2018, and 2019:
https://github.com/tyjhart/spokanecrime/tree/masteweekly_watch#violent-crime
In November 2017 there were 28 rapes reported. Same month of 2018 there were 20. Same month of 2019 there were 12. Reports of rape are literally down every single month from 2018 to 2019 except January. This is one of the most violent crimes - short of murder - and the data shows it going down. When petty theft, car theft, and something terrible like rape are all down there's something going on - a change is happening. Motor vehicle theft reports are down every single month from 2018 to 2019. However, commercial burglaries are slightly up. Once again - who is cooking the books here? Because they're doing a damn good job telling this story of how crime is down, except for a couple things, while also keeping the data looking random enough you'd think it's from the real world.
If you don't think there's some big conspiracy, but people are just calling in less, please explain to me how people are all - at the same time, with no public coordination that anyone's found - reporting less rapes, burglaries, thefts, and assaults. Is literally everyone in Spokane that experiences crime thinking the exact same thing, that the police just don't care and won't show up? Even people who are sexually assualted? Or people who aren't just burgled but threatened and robbed in-person with a knife or gun or some other weapon?
The conspiracies or assumptions about data coverups or Spokanite crime apathy just don't hold water. Crime really is down in Spokane. Here's something else to consider - the City of Spokane has to report its rollup crime data to the FBI. Here's the FBI's webpage for the program:
https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/ucnibrs#NIBRS-Toolbox
Here's a quick link to WA's data:
https://crime-data-explorer.fr.cloud.gov/explorestate/washington/crime
If you're going to say SPD is cooking the books on crime data, you're also assuming someone in the city's employ is willing to risk perjuring themselves to the FBI. I don't know of anyone who gets paid enough by the city to risk prison just to make SPD's numbers look better.
