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.


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 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.
