Deric Lostutter Did NOT Solve the Steubenville Rape Case

I have been hesitant to write too much about the lies being told by Deric Lostutter because I didn’t want to come off as spiteful, and to be honest was fearful of retaliation by Deric Lostutter aka KYAnonymous as he has vowed to destroy anyone who speaks the truth about him…even if it means he must lie to do so.  I feel that if I don’t speak out, then I become part of the problem.  Deric Lostutter is now legally targeting me and others by filing restraining orders for speaking the truth.  Make no mistake, Deric and the truth are strangers.   Deric is living in some sort of warped dream world where he believes himself to be a hero who “solved the Steubenville rape case” and “uncovered the rape case cover-up in Steubenville Ohio in 2012 resulting in the indictment of multiple school officials.”  This couldn’t be further from the … Continue reading →

Lawsuits, Restraining Orders, #SETG, Donations and MOAR!

There is no “polite” way to say this, but Deric Lostutter is an asshole.  To be honest, I’m just not going to beat around the bush as far as he is concerned.  He has made threats to me and to others, and I don’t owe him the courtesy of being polite or politically correct.  He certainly has gone out of his way to be an asshole.  Those that have been victimized by him for years know it, and those who still believe his fabricated tales of solving a rape case and unearthing a cover-up need to do their research on him.  He is not a hero and he has used the rape of a young girl as a way to make a living from donations for nearly 4 years. Deric has now decided that he is going to sue and take out restraining orders on  people for calling him names … Continue reading →

True Crime Has Gone Tits Up

I’ve blogged about true crime for years and have watched with much dismay, as those who follow cases have become increasingly more aggressive in how they “follow” cases.  There aren’t many of us left who still write about true crime or follow them from the sidelines.  For me, it’s become a chore to get involved with (as in blogging) about some of the cases, and the high profile ones I tend to avoid because of the rabid followers.  Long gone are the days of civil discussion.  Today “discussing” the case means victim blaming, harassing grieving families, stalking and harassing commenters who have a different opinion than the crime groupies.  It’s very disheartening, and probably one of the reasons that I haven’t blogged much for awhile.  I ask myself if the aggravation of dealing with these folks is worth it, and most of the time it isn’t.  I’ve even thought that … Continue reading →

Meddling Armchair Sleuths

For years while writing about true crime cases, my blog posts often turned to not the victims or the perpetrators, but to the behavior of some of the people who follow cases.  Some of these people cause great harm to the investigation with their tin foil hat theories and tips, and even greater harm to the families of victims who must endure their endless tripe and online abuse. During the Caylee Anthony case I made a mortal enemy of William Murtaugh aka Murtwitnessone because he was collecting donations for his personal use and claiming that they were for the “search” for Caylee Anthony.  He also did this when he was involved in the Trenton Duckett case.  During the Haleigh Cummings case I wrote about the bad behavior of the “true crime groupies” and have written more often than not about these types than the actual case itself. 

Autumn in Ohio

It won’t be long now until the trees are bare and winter’s wind and that ugly white stuff that no one wants to acknowledge will be here, and it will be yet another year that I am not back in my beloved home in the Mojave Desert.  BUT…I’m making the best of it, and I truly believe that everything that happens in our lives is for a reason and preparing us for the next journey that the universe/creator tosses our way.  I miss the desert A LOT, but while I was there I also missed the changing of seasons, especially autumn.  It is by far my favorite season just because of the brilliant colors of the leaves turning as they die.  That has always intrigued me – the leaves are dying and in their death throes provide the most amazing backdrops to our surroundings.  I’ve been so sick that I … Continue reading →

Alex is the New “Semicolon”

I haven’t written here in awhile, and it has been spotty at best for new blog posts. Honestly, after the defamation lawsuit it kind of took the fire out of me and the commenters.  Then I thought “well, maybe I have just outgrown my blog”, and upon reflection…nope, that’s not it either.  I guess I was thinking that I didn’t have much to say or no one would want to read what I have to say and then I reminded myself why I started blogging in the first place:  I LOVE TO WRITE.  I still send snail mail (Julie, I swear — your letter is almost done LOL) and I still journal in longhand.  I have notebooks lying around everywhere, and keep one in my purse.  I constantly write…everywhere except here and I need to change that. This blog started out as a spin on the name “Prinnie” which came … Continue reading →

KYAnonymous Wrongly Accuses Man of Sex Crimes

For the past few years it has been very troublesome watching Deric Lostutter aka KYAnonymous act irresponsibly online when it came to various cases that he is involved with.  As most know, Deric Lostutter is the Anonymous member KyAnonymous, who initiated #OPROLLREDROLL and who initially posted the now infamous Michael Nodianos video, as well as posting an Anon warning video to students that if they did not apologize to Jane Doe he would post their private information as well as social security numbers.  Deric Lostutter was wrong for making those types of threats against teenagers who may have tweeted ugly things to the victim, and sadly – he is still acting like this years later.   Not only does he continue to use the Steubenville rape case as his claim to fame, but he also uses his raid by the FBI as a reason to seek donations from kind hearted people.  … Continue reading →

ARMED AND DANGEROUS – Katelyn Settle and Zachary Dickman

According to West Virginia State Police, 20 year old Zachary Thomas Dickman Facebook page and 14 year old Katelyn Settle from the Brush Fork area are considered armed and dangerous by troopers after they allegedly assaulted a juvenile at the victim’s home.  From comments on the WVNS Facebook page, Katelyn and Zachary are brother and sister.   While teens wanted for attempted murder is really not something that out of the ordinary, what I did find interesting was the guardian of Katelyn’s comments on Facebook.  When crimes like these happen many always rush to judgment and point a finger at bad parenting. I’ve been guilty of it – I think most of us have. However in this instance. Katelyn’s father  immediately commented to the post and basically said that he did not raise his child that way and if she was found armed and officers were at risk, that they should take … Continue reading →

The Twisted Life of Gypsy Rose Blancharde

A few weeks ago, a friend posted on my Facebook about a missing persons/murder case in her hometown of Springfield, MO.  The mother of a disabled girl was found stabbed to death in her bedroom, and the disabled daughter was gone – nowhere to be found, and her wheelchair was left behind.  A strange message was posted on the Facebook account that they shared.  That in itself caused me to give the ol side eye.  Gypsy Blancharde was allegedly in her late teens yet shared a Facebook account with her mother?  The message posted said “That bitch is dead” followed by an equally disturbing “I fucken SLASHED THAT FAT PIG AND RAPED HER SWEET INNOCENT DAUGHTER…HER SCREAM WAS SOOOO FUCKEN LOUD LOL.” When friends of the Blanchardes couldn’t reach them by phone, they became worried that something was wrong.  It was then that a neighbor crawled into the house and … Continue reading →

Meadow Bridge High School

I realize I haven’t really been blogging that much here, and most of it is because I’ve been busy and/or having massive writer’s block or…just don’t have it in me to be passionate about some of the crazy stuff going on in our world, but something was brought to my attention the other day on Facebook and I wanted to share this story for a few reasons.  One, because I really don’t talk much about my past and two because I am proud of my hometown and the drive and determination of what amounts to a little mountain town in the hills of Southern West Virginia. In 2010, the population was 379.  It’s very small but very laid out geographically because it’s country.  And when I say country I mean one gas station and the nearest grocery store is almost an hours drive or more.  It’s rugged but beautiful, and … Continue reading →
