Earlier today Erica Parsons’ adoptive father, Sandy Parsons, was found guilty of fraud for collecting government benefits for Erica long after she had disappeared. Her adoptive mother, Casey Parsons, pleaded guilty to fraud charges earlier this month. They are both scheduled to be sentenced in February. Sandy Parsons is looking at a possible sentence of 20+ years in prison.

I thought the fraud charges would get one of them to crack about the possible whereabouts of Erica but it appears that they are thick as thieves so to speak.

Adoptive parents of Erica Parsons arrested on fraud charges

Last week the adoptive parents of Erica Parsons,Casey and Sandy Parsons, were arrested by federal agents on fraud charges. Erica has been missing from their Salisbury, North Carolina home since 2011 but the Parsonses have allegedly been collecting government benefits on Erica since that time.

The pair have been charged with 76 counts of various fraud charges stemming from Erica’s disappearance ranging from mail fraud to healthcare fraud among others. The pair was released and have been ordered to wear monitors.

Hopefully this will jar one of the two into telling authorities what really happened to Erica instead of the outrageous story that she went to live with her biological grandmother ‘Nan’. If I had to take a guess on who will crack first I would imagine it would be Sandy Parsons as Casey probably doesn’t feel like she did anything wrong.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Erica Lynn Parsons is asked to contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, 1st. Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Investigator Sara Benfield at 704-216-8739.

Reward doubled in Adam Herrman disappearance

Reward increases in search for Adam Herrman:

Reward in Adam Herrman case doubled to $100,000:

This Tuesday, July 1st, will mark the 15th anniversary since the disappearance of then 11-year-old Adam Herrman from the Butler County, Kansas home of his adoptive Breeders, Doug and Valerie Herrman. While Adam disappeared in 1999 his disappearance wasn’t reported to anyone until 2008. His adoptive Breeders were collecting the government benefits for Adam the entire time he was gone. They were both sentenced to less than a year in jail on fraud charges.

Just recently an anonymous donor doubled the reward for information leading to the discovery of Adam to $100,000.

Anyone with information about Adam’s whereabouts or his disappearance is asked to call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or 316-322-4257.

If you were to ask my opinion I would reluctantly say that I think Adam is no longer with us. When this story first broke it was big time national news. If no one could find him then I think it’s very unlikely that he’s till alive. Even so Adam needs to come home and those who wronged him need to face justice.

Thanks to Denise for the tip.

Crazy Confederate anti-vaxxer kidnaps kid

Sunrise Woman Accused Of Kidnapping Daughter To Avoid Vaccinations:

Sunrise mom accused of kidnapping girl to avoid vaccination, preschool:

Country-wide hunt for Florida mom on the run with daughter, 2, after kidnapping her from dad ‘to stop her being vaccinated’:

Megan Elizabeth Everett

Megan Elizabeth Everett

Let’s get this out of the way right up front. There is no link between vaccines and Autism. It has been debunked time and time again. If you believe that there is you are a gullible and ignorant Luddite. Like 22-year-old Megan Elizabeth Everett of Sunrise, Florida.

Everett had shared custody of her 2-year-old daughter Lilly. Back in May when it was time for Everett to return Lilly to her father she didn’t and is now part of a nationwide manhunt for both Lilly and her egg donor. The reason Everett allegedly kidnapped her daughter is so she wouldn’t be vaccinated. The crazy doesn’t end there though as Everett only wanted her daughter to learn about the Confederacy. Yes, that Confederacy, the failed nation that broke from the Union in order to perpetuate slavery in North America.

According to court records, Everett left a note for Baumann vaguely explaining her actions.

“You are a great dad,” she wrote, with the word “great” underlined. “If I let them take her and vaccinate her and brainwash her, I wouldn’t be doing what’s right. I cannot let a judge tell me how my daughter should be raised. We will miss you. But I had to leave.”

“One of the issues we had was, she wanted to home school my daughter,” said Baumann. “I didn’t want that to happen. She didn’t want Lilly to learn about black history. She just wanted her to learn about the Confederacy.”

Once again we have home schooling being used to hide behind racism and anti-vaxxing which both can be considered a type of abuse.

It seems that Everett ‘s new squeeze, Carlos Lesters, may have been the one who put these ideas in her had as his entire family has been described as Confederate flag waving gun nuts. Lesters also has family in Georgia and Kentucky.

Police ask anyone with information about the whereabouts of Everett and Lilly to call 954-746-3600 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).

Oh an as an aside, the Confederate flag in all its forms should be referred to by its proper name, the traitor’s rag.

New age-progressed photo of Adam Herrman released

Butler County releases age progression picture of Adam Herrman:

For those of you not familiar with the story of Adam Herrman you can catch up by clicking here.

The abridged version is that Adam was last seen at age 11 in 1999 in Butler County, Kansas. His adoptive Breeders continued to collect government checks and Adam was not reported missing until 2008. (It’s been 6 years already?)

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office has released the above age progressed photo showing what Adam could possibly look like today.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Adam Joseph Herrman is asked to call the Butler County Sheriff’s Office at 316-322-4257, CRIME TIPS at 1-866-484-5924 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children 24-hour Hotline at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).

So far his adoptive Breeders have not been charged in his disappearance but have pleaded guilty to fraud.

FBI: There is no ‘Nan’

FBI on Parsons case: Nan does not exist:

Speaking of giving kids to fictitious people the FBI recently announced they’re offering a reward for information leading to the return of Erica Parsons of $25,000. The Rowan County Sheriffs had and still is offering a reward of $10,000.

That’s not the only thing they announced though. The FBI has said unequivocally that there is no such person as Irene ‘Nan’ Goodman. Nan is the person that the Parsonses allegedly claim they gave Erica to two years ago. They also claim they believed Nan was Erica’s biological grandmother. Let’s hear from The Bureau…

“We know Erica did not go to live with Irene Goodman, which has previously been reported. I can tell you Nan just doesn’t exist,” said FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Deron Roberts.

Erica’s adoptive mother, Casey Parsons, only commented on the new reward money…

“I think this is excellent. I am very excited to hear this. You have made my day with this announcement, thanks.”

It’s like you can almost hear the gears turning to see how she can figure out to get the reward money herself.

7 week old TN baby disappears into thin air, Breeder arrested

Police Call-Off Search For Missing Baby:

Family And Friends Of Mother Of Missing Baby Talk About Abuse Charges:

I apologize for not posting this story sooner as I just found out about it today thanks to Krystal who sent in the tip.

A few weeks ago in Memphis, Tennessee, then 7-week-old Aniston Walker went missing. Her mother, Andrea Walker, claims that she walked her 5-year-old to school and left Aniston alone with her 3-year-old. When she returned she says, the baby was gone even though the home was locked and there were no signs of forced entry.

Police in Memphis suspended the search after 3 days even though they are still investigating her disappearance. Meanwhile Andrea Walker is believed to have had something to do with her daughter’s disappearance and has been arrested on neglect and abuse charges. Police say that Andrea Walker has been uncooperative and has allegedly given conflicting stories. The only thing missing from this story is that she Walker hasn’t claimed to have given the baby to a fictional person.

Nothing will bring a community together like a missing child. Complete strangers will drop whatever they’re doing and volunteer to assist police in the search. Nothing will turn a community against you faster than lying about that child’s disappearance. Eventually they will find Aniston and more than likely, I hate to say, deceased. Do yourself and everyone a favor, talk now so the baby can be put to rest.

Judge to Parsons: You’ll get your kids back when you produce Erica

Sandy, Casey Parsons’ two youngest children will stay with aunt and uncle for now:

Judge: Parsons’ children stay with aunt, uncle; another hearing set:

Family member says Parsons did not regain custody of children:

The adopted parents of Erica Parsons were in court this past week. Casey and Sandy Parsons were there to try to gain back custody of their youngest kids, you know, the ones who haven’t mysteriously vanished. Currently the children are staying with their aunt and uncle and according to family members will stay with them a while longer.

While Casey Parsons emerged from court saying “We won.” nothing could be further from the truth. Which is typical because she’s about as far from the truth as you can get. While local media were not allowed in the courtroom some family members were able to convey to the media what the judge’s ruling was. The judge basically ruled that the Parsonses can possibly get their kids back if they can produce Erica without breaking the law…

The judge gave the Parsonses a list of requirements that must be met, including counseling, drug testing and anger management for Sandy Parsons, according to WBTV. The judge also ruled that the Parsonses have to prove that Erica is alive or be able to explain what happened to her without sparking any criminal charges, David Whisenant reported.

If it wasn’t for the fact that a 15-year-old girl is missing and possibly dead it would be entertaining to see what Casey Parsons will say or do next in light of the judge’s ruling. Maybe a miracle will happen and they will produce Erica without breaking any laws but I won’t be holding my breath waiting for that to happen.

Cadaver dogs hint at possible human remains on Parsons’ property

Search warrant in Erica Parsons case: Dogs alerted on “possible presence of human remains’:

I apologize for this story being a month old but as I recently mentioned some times the real world can’t be put on hold.

Anyway, last month it was made public in a search warrant that some cadaver dogs indicated that there may have been the presence of human remains on a property where Casey and Sandy Parsons once lived. They are the adoptive parents of Erica Parsons who hasn’t been seen by anyone in over two years.

The search of the property with the cadaver dogs took place last October with three of four dogs indicating possible human remains in a storage building. Another cadaver dog was used in early November and he hit on the same building twice. Items were taken from the building but no human remains were found. Investigators are even exploring the possibility that Erica is dead and her body hidden somewhere.

Of course Casey Parsons had to chime in on this. Her reaction?

“This is so crazy. This is why no one has found Erica, because no one is searching for an “alive” Erica.”

Wow, it’s almost like she’s playing the dual role of Casey Anthony and Casey Anthony’s mom all at the same time. We even have a supposedly made up person who has the child. In this case being the mysterious grandmother from Asheville that no one can prove exists. It’s almost like she took notes from the Casey Anthony affair just in case something like this would come up.

Just because one person pulled off the swindle of a lifetime doesn’t mean everyone can.

Charges dismissed against Giovanni Gonzalez’s father

Ernesto and Giovanni Gonzalez

Judge dismisses charges against father of Giovanni Gonzalez, who disappeared in Lynn five years ago:

Sad news out of Massachusetts today when an Essex County Superior Court judge dismissed charges of parental kidnapping against Ernesto Gonzalez. Gonzalez is the main person of interest in the 2008 disappearance of his son, 5-year-old Giovanni Gonzalez. Giovanni was visiting his dad for a weekend but when it came time to return Giovanni to his mother Ernesto Gonzalez never returned him. He claims that he murdered Giovanni but investigators say there is no evidence to those claims.

Unfortunately this is not surprising as earlier this year Ernesto Gonzalez was ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial.

Gonzalez is far from a free man though. He’s been committed to a state mental facility who just requested an extension on his current stay. Not to mention he also assaulted an inmate and a guard.

Due to the lack of evidence I’m still hoping against hope that Giovanni is alive and that hopefully some new program or crime show will bring his story to at least a national audience.
