Let me start by saying that I do not belong to The Flat Earth Society because I do not believe the Earth is flat. I have no axe to grind with the flat Earthers, it is their perogative. I do think that OJ Simpson is guilty of a double murder, but some people disagree with me, that again is their perogative. I do not get into name calling with these people, everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

The Aaliyah Bedwell case seems to be bringing out the worst in a lot of people. That is a shame, I would have thought that everyone would have the same urge that Jan and I have. To get to the truth, if it is a hoax, then Jan and I have spent a lot of time on a wild goose chase, but it is a win situation, the little girl is fine. If the story is true and we provoke the authorities into action then we win, we help a three year old girl. There is no downside to this investigation, either way Jan and I can walk away knowing that we did what was right and just.

Alas Jan and I must also earn money to pay the rent, so I have not had much time to work on this case today. However I will share this interesting piece of information. The Auburn police are getting fed up with the attention, as indeed are CPS. That is a good thing. Those emails, phone calls, and letters are obviously having an effect. Nerves are becoming frayed, and the quiet continuity of ignoring the situation is becoming harder to maintain.

We obtained two interesting emails today. For the sake of common decency I have redacted some of the header information. But I will tell you this, I have 35 years experience in the Computer industry and on more than one occasion have been asked to participate in court cases because of my Computer knowledge. It is possible to spoof an email address, however you have to be a true artist at the practice to spoof the end to end server IP trail. I doubt that anyone involved in this case has that ability.

Both come from the Placer County Sheriffs department. The first one was sent to Connie Bedwell

It appears that one or both of you may have MISTAKENLY either posted or released my contact information to followers/supporters of your case. I have been receiving unsolicited e-mails from individuals, the latest from a woman in Georgia , who believes I am involved in your case.

From your emails I have been exposed to the nature of your case. I sympathize with your situation and, just like you, want Aaliyah to be in a safe and loving environment. As I do not have jurisdiction or involvement in this case it is not my decision where that environment may be. I can only suggest you obtain an attorney and continue your fight. You and your supporters need to direct your correspondence to the individuals involved in your case so your voices can be heard.

Good luck and I hope that the outcome is whatever is best for the safety and well being of Aaliyah.

The second came from the the same source, but went to a different recipient

This case was originally investigated by the Auburn Police Department and Placer County Child Protective Services. After an extensive investigation and interviews with the child the case was closed. It appears the motivation behind the video may have been a custody battle.

The web site, www.saveaaliyah.com, has an associated address in the City of Roseville. They are currently exploring the possibility of filing fraud charges against the involved parties.

Thank you for your concerns and for bringing this to our attention. Any further questions or concerns would be best answered by the Auburn Police Department or the Roseville Police Department. If you are unable to obtain the information you need from them you my contact me for assistance.

I see some inconsistency. The emails were sent 4 days apart, and to two different people. Just food for thought folks.
