How To Cope With Organized Stalking

My good friend Medawar has recently posted an important piece on organized stalking to his blog that I am reprinting here in its entirety with his permission. It's a really good introductory overview.

I would only add to his discussion of lies with regard to organized stalking that I consider it a critical life skill to check out the accuracy of things you are told before you believe them and especially before you repeat them to anyone else. As Medawar points out, lies are a basic part of organized stalking because they can be so incredibly damaging. Sociopaths and psychopaths are very aware that most people are too lazy or clueless to actually verify information being given to them. 

Here then is Medawar's post:

How to Cope with Organised Stalking: an open letter to Chris Packham

 It is apparent from the latest of several news items over the past few years, that the wildlife campaigner and broadcaster Chris Packham has fallen victim to what can only honestly be described as organised stalkers. This makes him an involuntary member of a club with very wide membership ranging from campaigners with views similar to his own, to those who are diametrically opposed and a rather larger number of people who have no idea at all why they are being persecuted. This post, while not comprehensive (or it would be far too long for anyone to read) sets out to offer some useful observations and tips for Mr Packham or anyone else, whatever their views on any matter, who finds themself in a similar position.

Don't be too concerned with discovering or speculating about your stalker's motives:

There are a few reasons for this advice. First and foremost, stalking and all other forms of targetted persecution are wrong, always wrong, and there is no cause, however urgent, however noble, which cannot disgrace and destroy itself by resorting to this kind of tactic. Recognising that stalking is always wrong and can never be justified is an important part of the solution, because it allows you to make common cause with those whom you might otherwise reject and bitterly oppose and it puts your persecutors on a collision course with the rest of the human race and, if you care to believe it, greater forces than that.

Secondly, Medawar once asked a psychiatrist why people were prepared to take part in stalking campaigns and the immediate and unequivocal response was "because they enjoy it." Everything Medawar has learned about stalking in the twenty years since that interview has supported that simple statement from the psychiatrist. Stalking doesn't just destroy the victim: it destroys those causes in whose name stalking is employed. Former members of the campaign group "Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty" believe they were defeated by a conspiracy between the government and "Big Pharma" but the harsh truth is that their methods, and the stalking of individuals and families in particular, turned pretty well the whole country against them and anyone who even sounded like them. There is no gain for the cause in the resort to stalking. Organised stalking, just like lone stalking, is done purely for the enjoyment of those organising it and those carrying it out. Your beliefs and your causes only really matter to them because they matter to you, allowing them to gain sadistic pleasure from frustrating your campaigns and destroying your hopes. Stalking is always about destroying hope in the end, because that's what gives a sadist the biggest thrill.

Consider, for a moment, that many victims of organised stalking have no history of activism at all; sometimes the trigger is amazingly trivial, almost always it involves the victim doing something he or she had a perfect right to do. Your beliefs, and the apparent beliefs of your persecutors, are usually not the real reason it is happening. There is nothing to be gained from compromising your beliefs, "toning them down" or doing anything other than regularly checking that you are happy in your own heart and mind with what you are doing. Artists are stalked, not usually to suppress any political message in their work, but because destroying their creativity gives the stalkers the thrill of cutting off a butterfly's wings, magnified a thousand times. The only satisfactory solution to stalking is to expose the stalkers and stop the stalking. Scuttling for cover is not only cowardly, but utterly futile.

And this brings us to an important observation based on more than two decades experience of these matters:

Lies Are A Stalker's Most Powerful Weapon (and thereby the most addictive)

Sometimes, lies are all a stalking campaign consists of, but more often they are used to complement and enable all the threats, vandalism, cruelty to pets and recreational arson which constitute the more obvious threat. Stalkers will spread lies about the victim, often before they notice anything amiss, to distance and then slowly isolate them from friends, neighbours and even family members. Those lies will also lie there waiting for a police investigation to start, which will always involve discreet inquiries amongst the victim's friends, neighbours and relatives -and the planted lies will be designed to cancel or fatally misdirect the police investigation in pretty short order. This is the major reason why victims frequently end up believing that the police are complicit in their stalking: the stalkers have carefully laid "evidence" for the police to unearth, perhaps long before the stalking appeared to start and the first complaint to the police is filed.

But because lies are so powerful and effective, stalkers come to depend on them and that can create a contradiction which suddenly collapses the house of cards. 

Note to policemen reading this: if everyone around the victim believes something that he doesn't think is true, try tracing that belief back to its source. Lots of people believing the same (bizarre and/or defamatory?) thing is actually unnatural: threat this phenomena with due suspicion.

The stalkers will lie to the victim, in that almost every bit of physical evidence they leave behind for them to find will be misleading in some way. Look for a pattern behind the pattern: "What are they trying to make me think? Is it something designed to drive a wedge between me and the police, or somebody else that I depend on?"

The stalkers will lie to campaigners and activists who might oppose the victim, in order to get them to help with the stalking. Perhaps without them ever realising how much has been happening and just how harmful it is.

Stalking is unrequited murder

Anything that speaks of a high, noble or political agenda behind the stalking is also a lie: noble aims do not need to be pursued by methods such as this. They are doing it because slowly destroying someone by stalking gives them a thrill akin to murder without the legal risks. There is a great danger for the whole of society in the police treating stalking and harassment as a trivial issue, not worthy of their precious resources, because the perception of risk is the only thing which separates the stalker from the murderer and current, dismissive, police attitudes are steadily eroding that risk.

Try and count your persecutors (at least approximately) before you spend undue effort identifying them

You should keep a log of everything that happens throughout the staking and harassment in any case: the police advise this, even if they are disposed to ignore the results if it suits them. But enhance the data by always suffixing an estimate of the minimum number of persons required to do it. Also always suffix how far away you were from home when it happened.

Over time, those two metrics can be a very useful tool for identifying your persecutors and may one day give you peace of mind, if the right number of stalkers are brought to justice or at least exposed. 

A small number of stalkers operating mostly in your local area may imply that it's a couple of mates (or brothers) and that all their communication with each other is face to face or by direct phone call, so they don't need social media for any purpose except adding to the pressure on you. 

A large number, operating almost everywhere you go, implies a group or network with some form of shared communication which the authorities might be able to penetrate.

And so on. Those two metrics will make your harassment log or diary more useful to the authorities, always assuming that they see the need to take genuine action. Which is constantly being demanded by successive Home Secretaries and ignored by successive Chief Police Officers.

Illegal Airstrip

See the following letter to the editor, published in the 6/23/21 issue of the Fredericksburg Standard:

The property this airstrip is on is either owned or very close to property owned by the serial killer I've discussed in my last couple of posts and/or his family. He is known to fly all over the country and all over the world to commit his crimes, so if I lived close to this airstrip, I'd be keeping a log of activity at this airstrip: dates, times, descriptions of aircraft, and whether flying in or out. After all, justice trumps revenge.

This is another example of how certain persons can and do get away with literally anything around here because of their high-level connections. It is NOT acceptable!

"Peeky-Lou"

First, please read the following post on Reddit:

 https://www.reddit.com/r/LetsNotMeet/comments/gfyndn/i_was_hunted_in_target_for_over_an_hour/

Now please go back and read it a second time with the additional information that this post was actually written by the serial killer I discussed in my previous post here. Puts rather a different spin on the piece, doesn't it?

Now go back to the piece a third time, and this time read the comments at the bottom. All or nearly all of them were actually written by the original author of the piece.  Notice how each commenter has a different personality, and notice how they talk back and forth to each other.

This is a great example of what I discussed in my previous post here titled "Personas". This particular killer has an unlimited supply of various personas that he fanaticizes as and writes as, and they interact with each other. This killer is known to spend hours every day posting as different personas all over the web. He is also strongly suspected of killing as various personas.

As my friend Medawar has pointed out, this is where criminal profilers get it wrong. They are very good at connecting the crimes of one person or one separate persona, but they have a hard time dealing with the fact that one particular killer can basically kill as very different people and with very different MOs.

See if you can find other examples of posts by this killer now that you have an idea of how to recognize him online, and consider adding them as comments below. I will give you a head start with this: many (if not most) of the stories and comments posted on Donna Anderson's Lovefraud website are actually written by personas of this killer's. Don't get me wrong; the Lovefraud site is legitimate and is one of the best sites around for good and very helpful information about sociopaths and psychopaths (which is why this killer finds posting on it so attractive!).  

Update, 6/25/21:

Medawar has posted the following on his blog, Medawar's Cornflakes, that links to this post of mine and comments on it.

RIDAY, 18 JUNE 2021

"Peeky-Lou" and how Forensic Psychologists can be Manipulated and Fooled Outright.

 This is a link to a blogpost which raises the question of how well psychological "offender profiling" works when a killer has (or uses) multiple fantasy personas and kills different victims as different personas.

Medawar knows who the blog author means and has experience of him blitzing blogs and forums with multiple comments as different people. His real self has useful political connections and these, and the multiplicity of personas that he uses, are very good at putting investigators off the scent. So there is an element of cold calculation behind the multiple personas and it's not exactly the same sort of mental disorder that it looks like at first: it's a deeply psychopathic but highly-educated mind using disorders that he has studied during his medical training and practice to advance a hobby of tormenting and periodically killing people.

The mind in question failed his psychiatric screening tests at medical school, but was allowed to sit them a second time, where he passed with flying colours with the benefit of appropriate study and paid-for coaching by former law enforcement officers with appropriate training. This is another way in which forensic psychologists can be duped: by offenders prepared to sit up late with the texts used to train forensic psychologists and, indeed, retired forensic psychologists with financial needs.

Let The Girls Speak!!

I'm so glad the parents of these victims had a chance to speak out! (See the article below from the Fredericksburg Standard, 12/2/2020.) However, it's even more important to let the victims themselves speak: through proper, accurate, and truthful investigations, crime scene examinations, and autopsies. [continued below]





But wait!--this is being prevented by deliberately not releasing any of this information at all. (See below, also from the Fredericksburg Standard, this time on 12/23/20.)


Thing is, there's been a known serial killer living in this community for years. And his probable first victim, almost 50 years ago, was another 16-year-old girl whose murder was also never properly investigated and whose story was hushed up because the killer's prominent family was desperate to conceal the crime and powerful people saw a opportunity to own and control them.

I have learned a lot about this particular killer over the years and would like to make a few predictions about what might actually be in the investigation file for these recent homicides:

1)  There is a good chance the murders occurred somewhere else.

2)  There is a good chance multiple perpetrators were involved. (As my friend Medawar likes to say, psychopaths have little trouble finding each other.) However, the actual killer will be the same man.

3)  The injuries to the victims will show medical knowledge.

4)  The crime scene or scenes will show extensive knowledge of law enforcement and investigative procedures.

5)  The injuries to the victims and the crime scenes (actual and/or staged) will show signs of the theatrical. This murderer is known to kill to stories in his head.

6)  At some point, it's highly likely that officers and agents from the Texas Rangers, FBI, and/or Secret Service will suddenly provide additional evidence pointing away from the actual killer (and usually toward some patsy or other). Some of these agents are known to live for free in housing provided by the killer's family. 

7)  There is involvement in both this and the Linda Muegge murder of the fire department, which I believe will turn out to be significant.

8)  There is a good chance for eventual justice in this case. International law enforcement has been actively investigating this killer for some time in connection with some high profile homicide cases, and these investigations are simply not going to go away, much as many here would wish.


With most of the community actively covering up for the serial killer in their midst, the entities below come off at best as total disconnects and at worst as very sick jokes... [continued below]


(Fredericksburg Standard 3/31/2021)

(Fredericksburg Standard 12/9/2020)

Let me be very clear: no one knows better than I do about how badly help for victims of domestic violence is needed here. However, if you just treat the symptoms of the problem without doing anything about the root cause, you're covering a huge, gaping, and constantly draining open wound with a pretty, pink, and frilly band-aid, meaning the problems will continue to get worse. You simply can't condemn one form of violence (domestic) while openly accepting, and at times even celebrating. another (serial killer). It's a culture of violence, and it continues to actively breed itself here because so one stops it.

How Things Work


How things work #1:

The following official city notice was published in The Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post recently, but not in the normal spot with the other notices; this one was published in the sports section. Also notice that it was published right at the end of the year, when many people were either gone or busy with the holiday season.

If you plug the address given for the property in question into Google Maps, you get a location in the middle of the local public high school parking lot.

Planned uses for the property in question include everything but the kitchen sink. (Oh wait, one of those planned businesses might just sell those too!)

The brand new city mayor is also a realtor and a property developer. (He happens to share grandchildren with my ex-husband who, along with his brother, is also a property developer.) Another coincidence: one of the persons listed here shares the same last name as one of the main families behind the large organized stalking ring that is based in the San Antonio area.








How things work #2:

The following letter to the editor of The Kerrville Daily Times provides an explanation for why I don't expect to be able to receive a vaccine for Covid19 any time soon.

How Can Organised Stalkers Afford to Do It?

My friend Medawar has posted a new piece that has important implications for Central Texas as well; he even alludes directly to the situation here if you know what to look for. I am reprinting the entire post here with his permission.

WEDNESDAY, 15 JULY 2020

How Can Organised Stalkers Afford to Do It?

The simple answer to a question which has perplexed victims and investigators of organised stalking for years is easily answered by the video below:

They can afford to stalk because they use someone else's money, and if you own shares in a big dotcom company, that money could well be yours!

The video also leaves those psychiatrists and policemen who argue that organised stalking never actually happens and that all the victims are deluded, with no place to hide except behind their own wall of baseless denial. 

However, the conspiracy theorists who claim that the involvement of big corporations in organised stalking is proof of a massive super-conspiracy may also be missing the point: 

There was a conspiracy in this case, between a fairly high-ranking executive who instigated it all because he felt the victims had affronted him personally by criticising E-bay, and other employees who appear to have enjoyed being ordered to persecute the victims, but who probably had no easy choice but to comply with the executive in any case. The stalking was not company policy and it definitely was not in the interests of the company or the shareholders, who may yet lose substantial monies from this. 
The explanation for this and probably most organised stalking that takes place in the world (no explanation ever covers every case!) is that the sort of sociopath who is moved to sadistically persecute and destroy innocent people for some perceived slight (which is rarely substantial), tends to seek positions of power that he can abuse. Just as paedophiles seek positions where they have control of children, such as in social services or residential education. In fact the mentalities are so similar that Medawar is confident that a fair proportion of the people directing organised stalking will also be paedophiles because that's the sort of personality that will be involved.

And because it is so important to them to occupy a position of power, they incline to extreme reactions whenever they, in that prestigious position, encounter opposition, criticism, or just unwelcome facts.

If the case in the video is what can happen when a sociopath has a position in an organisation with as little involvement in covert operations as E-Bay (it wasn't even the notorious Facebook or YouTube!) what do readers suppose might happen if the same sort of sociopath has a senior position in the police, or the FBI, or the CIA, or even your local hospital? Do the senior positions at the local Masonic Lodge actually go to the most upright and trustworthy men, which is what is supposed to happen, or to those driven to attain such positions by their own vanity, who are the ones most likely to turn the collective resources of the Lodge against those who, wittingly or unwittingly, prick their vanity?  

The other characteristic of organised stalking very clearly seen in this case is that the immediate reaction to possible discovery was not flight or denial, but a coordinated effort to frame other people for the crime.

One afterthought is this: given the reasoning laid out above, wouldn't it make a lot of sense if the Chinese Communist Party had been colonised by all the sociopaths in China? Officials being terrified of having to tell the truth, critics being suppressed with ridiculous levels of force, an institutionalised refusal to admit any fault or error whatsoever in any circumstances! Medawar has read a novel which advances just this theory.

Even MORE Issues of Trust

On 6/29/09, I posted a piece on this blog titled "Family Business" in which I gave detailed information about my family situation.

On 6/29/10, I posted a piece here titled "Pages" in which I documented my experiences with a fraudulent trust document that I was able to later have voided by the court. This document was a clear attempt to steal my house and land, which were the main assets I had been awarded in my 2001 divorce settlement. There are numerous other references to and documentation of this document and the circumstances surrounding it all over this blog.

On 10/27/09, I posted a piece (also on this blog) titled "Insurance Matters #1" in which I documented what I knew and didn't know at the time about four mysterious life insurance policies that had suddenly turned up.

Now I am posting a statement I've written for law enforcement that documents what I know and don't know about another clearly fraudulent trust document that I've been attempting to deal with. This second fraudulent trust document is definitely tied to the four mysterious life insurance policies plus additional life insurance policies I've learned about recently.

If, like the first, this second fraudulent trust document has anything at all to do with another attempt to steal my house and land, it will put anyone in any way connected with it squarely in the middle of a very high-profile homicide investigation. There's no statute of limitations on murder cases, so this investigation will continue quietly in the background, even if the well-connected perpetrators are once again able to prevent current prosecutions. Due to its high-profile nature and several other factors I can't go into here, this investigation will never end until justice is obtained. And anyone caught on the wrong side of it can expect to be utterly ruined and/or incarcerated at any moment. Consider yourselves warned!

Here then is my statement of the facts as I know them here and now. I can provide copies with the redacted information included upon request by persons or entities who are entitled to receive it. The homicide investigation has already been provided with a complete preliminary copy of this plus some additional information that is not included here.


STATEMENT

My name is XXXXXXXXXX. I was born in XX in 19XX. I have previously also lived in XX, KY, and Houston, TX. I currently live in [Central Texas].

I married XXXXXXXXXX in Houston in 19XX. We had 3 children together, the oldest born in Houston and the other two after we moved to [Central Texas], where [my ex-] is from, in June of 1986. In June of 1999 [I believe this date to be important], [my ex-] suddenly left.

Our divorce was full of signs of fraud, but I was unable to obtain proper legal representation because my (now deceased) former father-in-law, XXXXXXXXXX, was a wealthy and powerful attorney, banker, and real estate developer with close connections to LBJ and the Bushes. I managed as best I could, and our divorce was finalized [at the beginning of] 2001. The house I currently reside in on [XXXXX] St. and the approximately 23 acres of land it sits on were the primary assets I received in the divorce settlement.

In Nov. or Dec. of 2001, I received change of address forms from MetLife for four life insurance policies I knew nothing about: #XXXX, #XXXX, #XXXX, and #XXXX. Apparently, correspondence related to these policies had been going to our former residence in Houston, TX, and possibly also to a former residence on XXXXX St. in [Central Texas] that we rented briefly while the house on XXXX was being built. I filled out the forms to update the addresses to my current residence. Then for the next several years, I received small dividend checks (each for less than $100, if I remember correctly). I cashed these and tried repeatedly to obtain information about the policies from MetLife, both by phone and by letter, but no one would ever tell me anything or get back to me. I asked my accountant, XXXXXXX, and my financial advisor, XXXXXXX, to help me with this, and both told me they couldn’t find out anything about the policies either. Eventually, the checks stopped coming.

I assumed at the time that these policies were ones my ex-husband had taken out on my life without my knowledge. Shortly after we moved to [Central Texas], while we were living in the rental house (Nov. of 1986), my daughter, my unborn child, and I nearly died from CO poisoning caused by tampering with the ventilation system in our attic and the door to our gas heater being left open. At the time, I was told these had been done by the previous tenant, but after my divorce, bizarre behavior on the part of my ex- and persistent rumors around town about my ex- being dangerous had caused me to come to the belief that the incident had been an attempt on our lives and that the four insurance policies had been related to this.

My house and land are located only a block or two from the local hospital, XXXXXXXXXX. Soon after my divorce, the City of XXXXXXX annexed my property. They then both raised my property taxes hugely and began trying to take away my agricultural exemption. They also never informed me that my agricultural land did not have to be annexed.

I hired a P.I. to help me deal with this and other very frightening issues of harassment, trespassing, and illegal surveillance that were going on. Instead of helping me, the P.I. defrauded me and someone forged my initials on an obviously fraudulent trust document that gave the P.I. total control of my property. A certified document examiner, XXXXXXXXXX, provided evidence that my initials on the document were forged, and I filed complaints against the P.I. that resulted in his license being revoked. After the P.I. died of cancer, his family cooperated with me in getting the fraudulent trust revoked.

After I was defrauded again, this time by P.I.s posing as former DEA and FBI agents, I began writing a blog about my experiences at vocct.blogspot.com. One of my posts there is about the four MetLife policies and explains what I knew about them at the time.

I heard nothing more about the MetLife policies until early in 2018, when I suddenly began receiving repeated requests from MetLife to change my address on the policies to that of my father, XXXXXXXXXX, of Louisville, KY. Shortly after my divorce had been finalized, I had learned that my father and stepmother, XXXXXXXXXX, were actually close associates of my ex-husband and his family. After they stole house keys from me and gave them to my ex-, I had severed all ties with them, so I didn’t know what to make of these attempts to illegally change my address. Each time, I returned the change of address forms to MetLife telling them that my address had not changed and that for important legal reasons, I could not say that it had.

After five or six rounds of these attempted address changes, I received a letter from my father in which he personally asked me to okay the address changes and said the policies were actually his. I wrote back stating once again that I couldn’t lie about my address. I then received a second letter from my father that was more strongly worded and frankly ugly. I wrote him back explaining my position again. I also sent a copy of his letters and my responses to MetLife and asked for their help in stopping the change of address forms.

MetLife responded by sending me a letter stating that the four insurance policies were my father’s and were in some sort of trust that I was the trustee of. They also sent me a copy of a document my father had provided them with concerning this trust that stated in my father’s handwriting that I was the trustee of the trust that owned the policies. I noticed that this trust appeared to have been set up in Nov. of 1984, a few weeks after my mother had died of cancer.

I knew nothing whatsoever about this trust. I wrote to my father again, this time explaining that I could not serve as trustee of a trust I knew nothing about. While I was trying to decide what I should do about it, another letter arrived from my father. This time, he informed me that he was dying of cancer and that he wanted my stepmother to be named trustee of the trust in my place. He also said the trust left two-thirds of all it contained to my [sibling], XXXXXXXXXX of Louisville, and one-third to me, and he indicated that this was what he wanted.

Shortly after that (in Aug. of 2018), my three adult children and I received packets of documents from my stepmother’s lawyer in KY, XXXXXXXXXX, along with letters from [same attorney] asking us to sign and notarize the documents, which made [my step-mother] trustee of the trust in my place. These packets contained copies of a partial trust document, but it was incomplete (e.g., the section on what was contained in the trust was missing) and contained forged initials of my father’s and a forged signature of mine.

My eldest daughter and I refused to sign the documents until we were provided with more information. [The attorney] emailed that he was attaching a more complete copy of the trust document, but there was nothing attached. I emailed him back about this, and he responded by emailing a different trust document; this one was also incomplete and contained more forgeries. [My step-mother’s attorney] stated that he had some sort of court hearing scheduled on the matter and that my father was near death, so the matter was urgent. He also made various legal statements in his emails that were conflicting and occasionally even false. I emailed back that I simply could not ever sign off on a trust that I believed to be fraudulent. He then sent me a form he wanted me to sign saying simply that I resigned as trustee. I told him I could not do this either. He threatened me with unspecified legal action.

On Sept. 12, 2018, [the attorney] emailed to say that my father had died the day before. He urged me to begin filing claims on the insurance policies in order to get the money to my [sibling]. He also offered to assist me in obtaining copies of my father’s death certificate. I obtained a copy of my father’s death certificate on my own and filed a claim, but under my own name, in accordance with my father’s stated wishes from his letters. I then emailed [my sibling] (from whom I’d also been estranged for many years because my father had supported them financially and they had made it clear that their loyalties were with him and my ex-husband) to find out how they wanted to receive any money we were awarded in the claim. As far as I could tell, there was around $15,000 total left in the four policies.

MetLife sent me a letter back asking me to resubmit the claim with a tax # for the trust. I did resubmit the claim, but again it was under my own name and without the tax #, which of course I know nothing about. On Oct 26, 2018, I received a call from XXXXXXX at MetLife (XXX-XXX-XXXX) saying they couldn’t process the claim without a copy of the trust document. I explained that I’d been unable to obtain a complete and notarized copy of the document despite repeated attempts and that I believed the trust to be fraudulent. I also gave her [my step-mother’s lawyer’s] contact information. [The MetLife agent] called me back to say they were getting the run-around from him as well and that they were still trying to get a copy of the actual document. [The MetLife agent] promised to provide me with a copy of this if they were able to obtain it. I have never heard back from them.

Also in Oct. of 2018, someone (I think at the XXXXXXX Agency in Louisville?) forwarded me a small amount of information on a life insurance policy of my father’s with MassMutual, #XXXX, that had been issued in 1949 along with a dividend check for $42.28 that was made out to the “[my name] Ttee Under Irrev T/A Dtd 11-27-84”. I cashed the check under my own name and sent immediately sent two-thirds of it to my sibling as per my father’s wishes. My sibling emailed me with their thanks and mentioned having seen other life insurance policies of our father’s. Letters I received copies of dated Sept. 6 and Sept. 27, 2019 from Minnesota Life Insurance Co. mention an unknown claim #XXXX filed by XXXXXXX of Louisville, KY with regard to a policy #XXXX and ask [this person] for Certification of Trustee Authority and a Beneficiary Statement. I know nothing about this policy or claim and have no idea who [this person] is.

MetLife now says they intend to transfer all funds remaining in my father’s four policies with them to the Texas unclaimed property department. My sibling has been emailing me repeatedly, begging me to file insurance claims to get them the money from those and unknown additional life insurance policies of my father’s.

In one of the emails I received from [my step-mother’s lawyer] after my father had died, he stated that my step-mother would be moving to Ohio to be near her daughter. However, on Oct. 30, 2019, I accidentally discovered that a few weeks after my father’s death, my step-mother had actually moved not only to the same Central Texas town I live in, but to a residence on the hill directly above my house and land (where my adult daughter and I still live). She has been living there ever since.
