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.

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.

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.

Casey Parsons can’t keep her mouth shut

Adoptive mom disputes financial aspect article on missing teen Erica Parsons:

This story is a week old but you should be used to my tardiness by now.

Anyway local TV station WBTV recently did a story about how the adoptive parents of Erica Parsons were allegedly still collecting government benefits meat for Erica the entire time she’s been missing. It seems that Casey Parsons, Erica’s adoptive mother, is one of those people who has to react to anything. I’m surprised she hasn’t shown up[ here yet. She’s basically saying that her and her husband are due the money and that we shouldn’t question it….

My husband and I have never ever signed our rights away for Erica. We are still legally responsible for her.Please keep reading and make sure to even read the special paragraph the state writes about a child even leaving home. “Out-of-Placements” These statements are made out of the mouth of our own Government. Exactly what my husband and I did for Erica. We had an Out-of-Home arrangement.

Except there’s two things that probably need clarifying. Was any of that money used on Erica? Did you send any of it to Erica’s allegedly imaginary new caretaker? If I had to lay odds I would say no to both.

By the way have you had your trip to New Orleans yet?

Casey Parsons going to New Orleans to ‘find Erica’

Adoptive parents of missing teen headed to New Orleans, hope to find answers:

Sometimes you just have to sit slack-jawed and marvel at how some people overestimate their ability to bullshit the public. For example take Casey Parsons, the adoptive mother of missing North Carolina teen Erica Parsons. Casey spoke with a local news station to tell them that she will be going to New Orleans in hopes of finding Erica. The reason she picked New Orleans is because that’s where Erica’s biological mother lives. You see, it seems like Casey is still trying to deflect any suspicion away from her and towards Erica’s birth mother and the mysterious ‘Nan’ that they dropped Erica off with.

“We’re just going around to the area where I know that Carolyn lived,” Parsons told Harry, referring to Carolyn Parsons, the biological mother of Erica. “The last little questions that we had in the little interview we had with the FBI, we were under the impression that Carolyn just knows more that she’s coming forth with and saying and there’s a little bit, of course, Carolyn is the one that led me to Nan, well, led Nan to us, and Nan knew all my information and the one common factor is Carolyn.”

I wonder if she’ll run into O.J. while he’s looking for Nicole Brown’s real killer. Whoops, I forgot O.J. was locked up. Or maybe she’ll find ‘Nan’ and Zenaida Gonzalez drinking Hurricanes on Bourbon Street while Bigfoot throws beads at them.

You know it’s less than a day’s driving from New Orleans to the Mexican border. Just sayin’.

Erica Parsons’ adoptive mother blames bio mom and imaginary friend for disappearance

Exclusive: Casey Parsons opens up about missing teen:

Erica Parsons’ adoptive mother blames birth mom for disappearance:

Ok, I know I said I wasn’t going to mention Erica Parsons’ adoptive mother’s name on here since she has yet to be charged with a crime but since it’s already out there you can’t un-ring the bell plus I find it ironic that her name is Casey. Speaking of Caseys, Casey Anthony should sue Casey Parsons for plagiarism.

In recent interviews with the local news not only has Casey Parsons blamed the possibly fictional Irene ‘Nan’ Goodman that no one can prove ever existed but now she’s also blaming Erica’s biological mother, Carolyn Parsons.

“Carolyn is the key,” she said.

Casey says she let Erica move in with a woman named Irene or “Nan” almost two years ago. She says at the time she believed “Nan” was Erica’s biological grandmother.

“We don’t know who Nan is. But I think those answers are going to come from Carolyn,” she said.

“Carolyn is the one that sent “Nan” to us, and if Carolyn really cared, I don’t think she’d go away to Louisiana,” Casey said.

Carolyn says she went home to Louisiana just a few days ago to spread the word about Erica’s disappearance there.

The problem with this scenario is the fact that Casey Parsons and her husband were the ones receiving the state benefit checks for Erica. If Carolyn Parsons and the alleged Irene Goodman were taking Erica wouldn’t they want the benefits that went with her?

Someone is going to get so wrapped up in their own lies that it will be their downfall. We can only hope that it leads to finding Erica safe but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it.

Erica Parsons’ adoptive parents prefer the feds over local cops

Casey and Sandy Parsons feel more comfortable with federal investigators:

According to the attorney of Erica Parsons’ adoptive parents it seems they prefer dealing with the FBI rather than the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. Supposedly the FBI is treating Erica’s disappearance more like a missing persons case while Rowan County is treating it like a murder investigation. Not to make light of the situation but…


I mean it has to be one or the other right? It’s probably that the FBI is better trained in accommodating bullshit.

Oh, and get this. The mystery grandmother who no one cam seem to prove exists now has a nickname. Now she’s Irene ‘Nan’ Goodman. Next they’ll probably be like “Oh did we say Asheville? We meant Nashville. Yeah she lives in Tennessee.”

Bust out your hip waders Salisbury because you’re knee-deep in it.

Did Erica Parsons send IM to bio mom?

Online chats contradict parents’ story about missing teen Erica Parsons:

You can see my original post on Erica Parsons here.

The Salisbury Post has obtained transcripts of online chats that allegedly took place between Erica Parsons’ adoptive mother and her biological mother after the time that Erica was last seen by anyone.

If you’ll recall Erica was last seen in November of 2011 but was reported missing just this past July.

In January of Erica’s biological mother allegedly received a message from the adoptive mother’s account where someone claiming to be Erica said she didn’t want any contact with her biological mother anymore. Then in November of 2011 adoptive mom told bio mom that Erica was camping. Lastly in a message from March of this year adoptive mom allegedly says that she recently saw Erica.

Remember the adoptive family says that Erica is with her biological grandmother in Asheville that nobody can seem to prove exists. Let’s also remember that the adoptive parents were allegedly receiving government checks for Erica the entire time since November of 2011.

It seems obvious to almost everyone what’s really happened here but a fear of prison can make people not only lose their conscience, if they had one to begin with, but it can also make them think that they’re smarter than everyone else. Erica will eventually be found and people will go to jail for it.
