My introduction into child protective service cases was due to a grandmother in an adjoining state who called me with her tragic story. Her two granddaughters had been taken from her daughter who lived in my district. Her daughter was told wrongly that if she wanted to see her children again she should sign a paper and give up her children. Frightened and young, the daughter did. I have since discovered that parents are often threatened into cooperation of permanent separation of their children.
The children were taken to another county and placed in foster care. The foster parents were told wrongly that they could adopt the children. The grandmother then jumped through every hoop known to man in order to get her granddaughters. When the case finally came to court it was made evident by one of the foster parent’s children that the foster parents had, at any given time, 18 foster children and that the foster mother had an inappropriate relationship with the caseworker.
In the courtroom, the juvenile judge, acted as though she was shocked and said the two girls would be removed quickly. They were not removed. Finally, after much pressure being applied to the Department of Family and Children Services of Georgia (DFCS), the children were driven to South Georgia to meet their grandmother who gladly drove to meet them.
After being with their grandmother two or three days, the judge, quite out of the blue, wrote up a new order to send the girls to their father, who previously had no interest in the case and who lived on the West Coast. The father was in “adult entertainment”. His girlfriend worked as an “escort” and his brother, who also worked in the business, had a sexual charge brought against him.
Within a couple of days the father was knocking on the grandmother’s door and took the girls kicking and screaming to California.
The avenues via which Nancy Schaefer planned to expose what she had uncovered in countless stories like the one above included both a documentary film and a book, according to individuals — including a woman who said she spoke with Schaefer about her investigation less than 48 hours before her death — who spoke with me on condition of anonymity.
While I could find no evidence of any book having been published, I did find that William Fain, the documentary producer with whom she was working, had spoken publicly about the documentary effort. Only a few days after the Schaefers’ bodies were found, Fain appeared in a three-part interview (below) with the controversial, take-no-prisoners host Alex Jones: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
Though I haven’t spoken with Fain about Schaefer’s death or the documentary, I would not be surprised if he wasn’t speaking out about the documentary any more. Why? Because Bill Bowen, a former federal law enforcement officer who was serving as the director of the documentary, died suddenly only five months after Nancy Schaefer.
Bowen died of an apparent heart attack on a golf course approximately five months after the Schaefers died, according to one blog post, though he rarely played the game because he wasn’t good at it. Further, according to the same post, he died shortly after being warned by an elected federal government official that he should not pursue the CPS and government pedophile rings. [Note: Though another blog narrowed the date of death to mid-August, I could find no definitive date of his death online.]
extensive note, shown above with misspellings and all (click to download pdf), on the Facebook page, We Demand An Extensive Investigation On The Death Of Senator Nancy Schaefer. Among other things, he included a warning to all Americans which now, quite probably, stands as one of his final public statements:
Nancy Schaefer was poised to and had begun to expose the incredibly corrupt CPS system in our country and around the world and she too, in my opinion, was assassinated for that and you had better know all about that one too. Your freedom and sanity and that of your children depend on your finding out about that.More than a year later, Bowen’s words stand as a clarion call for everyone to get involved in cleaning up a broken and corrupt system.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The stories Nancy Schaefer and others have told are not unlike several stories that have been shared with me and will be featured in future posts in my aforementioned series. In fact, my next Family Court Nightmares installment will highlight the story of another Missouri woman who’s fighting two court battles at the same time. In one case, she’s fighting to save her young granddaughter for whom she has been the primary caregiver for years from being adopted out to complete strangers; and, in the other, she’s fighting to rescue her octogenarian mother from the nursing home where she’s being held against her will after a county public administrator removed her from her own home and from contact with her family, put her under heavy sedation while in a string of lock-down care facilities and then liquidated her assets worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
