REAL HISTORY of The Encyclopedia Foundation aka The Myria Foundation

1.  Dean West was arrested by the Normal, IL Police Department for strangling his first wife and there is a police report record of this in Normal, IL

2.  His first wife fled to her home state of Washington and didn't follow through on the charges.

3.  He sued her for custody and lost.  Soon thereafter he took off on a ten year trip to every state but Hawaii.  He lived as a hobo, doing odd jobs, working as a security guard, and as those who know him well enough to have heard the more sordid parts of the story, worked as right-hand man for a pimp in Boston, even disposing of bodies (this was reported to the Crime stoppers at the Boston Police Department) did assorted drugs along the way, and bragged that he could find a woman to take him in within a few days of hitting any town or city.  He did add that a woman's "nice" attitude generally held up for about 3 weeks and then they (the women) would show their other side and he would be gone.  I have to wonder what HE did to them over that 3 week period to drive them to that point.  He was involved in some sort of trouble with anarchists in Florida. 

4.  Eventually he settled in Alaska, where he was expelled from the University, and where he worked in a liquor store and supposedly as a security guard.  He was arrested for violence involving his then partner Rondi Eldridge and the charges dealt down to a lesser charge.  A woman who knew him in Alaska, who shall remain nameless, has reported to the FBI recently that Dean used to openly plot about his plans to exploit women for money.  When he was going through his criminal proceedings he met his supposed second wife (there may be more out there across America) and for several years, used up her retirement fund, abused her and her sons, who he adopted (I heard that the oldest had to agree to the adoption under threat of harm).   They bought a house for cash in Michigan, and as a torturous punishment the younger boy had to dig a trench around the house.  According to the oldest adopted son, who contacted me through this blog, he was made to dig so long and so deep it eroded the foundation of the house and they couldn't even get what they had paid for it.   He and his second wife then moved to Lincoln, IL and bought another house with the help of his parents.  While living in Lincoln he became more involved on the net.  There is a police report of abuse toward his natural son when he was there for a visit.  It was so bad, according to the report and the first wife and real son, that the boy's mother had to come down with family and get the boy with the help of the Lincoln, IL police.  I am not sure if Dean West started pursuing the woman from Australia whose video is on this blog at that time or after, but his oldest adopted son told me that he would tell the woman he loved her and carry on long conversations with her while his wife and sons could hear him!!!   According to the oldest boy, when he came back from serving in Iraq, he had had enough of watching his mom and brother be abused and with police assistance, Dean was forced to leave.  I have reported to the FBI that Mr. West ruined his kid's credit.  Are they going to do something?????  This blog is a criticism of the lax attitude of law enforcement in these matters.  It is as if law enforcement is doling out assistance to crime victims as favors they can bestow on those they choose to "serve!"   No kidding!

Year 2005.  5.  At some point the woman from Australia dumped him.  Mr. West received help in relocating to Pana, IL from Jehovah's Witnesses and pretended to be seriously interested in being one.   He had an apartment and found a new woman to pity him on the net.  The Paterson, New Jersey victim, whose restraining order Dean West violated, (warrant information is mentioned on this blog), heard that Mr. West had terrible credit, from him, and that he couldn't own property in his name.  She told Mr. West about a friend of hers who had a "foundation" so that the man could own property, without actually owning property.   A seed was sown and the idea stuck.  After Mr. West allegedly abused this woman (police reports were made in S. Lake Tahoe, California) she went back home to New Jersey and Mr. West moved on to another sympathetic woman from the net in Washington State and when she told him to leave, shortly thereafter, he had yet another sympathetic woman from Sioux Falls, SD, waiting in the wings, which is his MO.  He ALWAYS has an alternate in the wings, even if the woman considers herself a friend only, he considers her a back-up plan. 

6.  Court records contain allegations that Mr. West tried to blackmail the South Dakota victim.  There is an open warrant for his arrest for the sixth degree felony charge of violating a stalking restraining order.  Part of the court record of the restraining orders the woman and her husband had against him, includes a document Mr. West himself submitted, which shows that he planned to create a "foundation" with the victim and her sister.  She says that was done under duress.  Mr. West fled South Dakota, but later, even after he had married another woman in Springfield, he was proclaiming his love on the net for the South Dakota victim......

7....So..... when he met and married Kathy Warren in 2006, it was very odd that he insisted that they form a South Dakota foundation, The Encyclopedia Foundation.  He used the address of an RV service in South Dakota as the supposed address of the non-existant foundation.   Police reports from Leland Grove and the dissolution court papers show that the marriage was tumultuous from the start, but ultimately, Dean West got what he wanted.  In court documents both stated in July, 2007, that they had been apart for six months, however, the cashiers check Kathy Warren signed does not bear that out.   She thought they were a couple at that time.  Later on, she did tell a judge that, in 2008, when she and her sister appeared in a Motion to Show Cause for Contempt hearing she had filed against Mr. West.   I heard from Dean West, from Kathy Warren herself, and from Roma Larson, that after Judge Nardulli advised her to speak to the prosecutor if she felt she had been defrauded by Mr. West and she and her sister did in fact go to speak to the prosecutor and were TURNED AWAY!   Even though the prosecutor knew already what Mr. West had done to me and after they had been up to the prosecutor's office, I spoke to the prosecutor and she acknowledged what Dean had told me when he called me after the hearing.  The prosecutor who was later forced to resign, Roma Larson could not put two and two together????   Law enforcement was out in December 2007 when Kathy Warren alleged abuse, and they stood on that porch and told Dean West that they should be arresting him.  He stood there holding my hand and once again, used one woman to get out of trouble for hurting another.   By that time, I had been appointed a board member of the South Dakota foundation and Dean had plans to dissolve it and transfer the property to the new foundation we would create.  I returned to Ohio, for a time that was supposed to be temporary and Dean used MY debit card to incorporate The Myria Foundation.  He told me that being secretary treasurer of the foundation was a gift he was giving me, his new bride.  He even got my mom involved and our names are on the original incorporation papers.  

There is a lot more history, directors he beat up coming and going, me and Kathy Warren being the two.  Another director left because she became the target of his wrath when he had no girlfriend and he had threatened to harm her daughter the same way he had threatened to harm mine.   We women, flawed and weak for our own individual reasons, want to believe that the man we saw when he was on his best behavior was the man he is.  Sociopaths are believable because when they want something, they convince themselves that what they are doing is true, because it serves the intended end!    So, Mr. West went back and forth between me and Kathy Warren, taking money from both of us along the way, except she was smart enough to get written loan agreements for some of the money he bamboozled her out of.  He emptied my bank account in Fall of 08 and then Kathy Warren began opening her purse, liberally.  So, instead of paying me back, with the thousands more he got out of her, he tried to get me to kill myself by tricking me into moving to Tucson.  Kathy dumped him again, and I didn't want to live anymore anyway so I went to live with him for three months.  He made me a slave.  I did painting and cement repair and clean-up jobs on the "foundation" house.  I wasn't allowed to go out except when  he sent me to the store, or if we were on a video run.  He physically abused me over and over and when I told a couple of people who had come over, and showed my bruises, I got beat up even more.   I found the strength to leave him and I guess Kathy Warren, sick woman she is, helped him, but he claimed he still loved me (I had been taping his calls) and pursued me again in Spring of 09 and when I pissed him off because I wasn't doing what he wanted, he remarried her, only to start pursuing me again just a few short months later.   I didn't get to Illinois fast enough for him, so he placed an ad for a woman on The Experience Project.   I heard a strangeness in his voice and Googled him and found the ad and warned the women about it.   Too late.  As he had wooed me over the phone for months, he began wooing the latest prey, over the phone.  When the woman she was living with tried to warn her that he indeed had a history of abusing women, she wouldn't listen.  She, like all his victims, has a history of abuse in her background and family dysfunction.  So, he found another woman he could  exploit, another woman he could use, another woman he could control.   According to her childhood friend she fled Mr. West early on.  He went running back to Kathy Warren and dropped his divorce.  However, Kathy Warren owns her own home.  She is less likely to take his physical abuse than someone who had no where to go, no where to turn.  He got Kathleen Callahan to lie for him to the Court in Sangamon County, and I know Dean.  That was a "symbol" that she was going to comply, for her childhood friend told me and the Springfield Police that Dean had threatened to kill her if she didn't do what he said.  Yes, another report to the Springfield Police.   They did a well-check and she lied for him again.  But months later, he was charged in 2010 for Domestic Violence against her.  Again, not having anywhere to go (who really wants to stay in a shelter?) and having had her mind in the state it needs to be in to stay with him, she stayed with him, not showing up for her protection order hearing and not showing up for the criminal trial.   So, once again, Mr. West gets away with hurting a woman.  But along the way, he has held onto the house where he and his current prey, can live rent free, mortgage free, and judgment free.  Oh yeah, he wants to store books for the end of the earth!   And now, the heat is on because of this blog informing the public, so he has changed the site of the assumed name of The Myria Foundation, The Encyclopedia Foundation.   And, as he did me, I am sure he is convincing whoever he is currently with, that there is an urgency that they spend some money, to make him look legitimate.  It will be said in earnest, and he means it, after all, it serves him well.   While the women he has harmed before still suffer the effects of their lives having been polluted by his slimy self.  

Everything I say can be proven through documents, police reports and by interviewing witnesses.  In other words, work would have to be done.  For anyone who thinks that law enforcement works like CSI or other such shows, they do not.

Note: Sherry West's debts are still his debts, as far as I know.  Last time I checked they were never divorced.   I am suing him for annulment currently in Sangamon County Court under our old dissolution case.  I have also filed a federal personal injury suit which is on the Springfield, IL Federal Court docket. 

Warning: The following video, posted on youtube by the Australia victim contains profanity:

To view some of the police reports made against Mr. West, look under "Links Worth Clicking" in the left column of this blog.  I haven't yet posted all I have in my possession.  Also, he was a self-proclaimed hobo who lived in every state but Hawaii for about ten years so there are likely other police reports and marriages out there.  

I also want to add that police reports should be public information everywhere.  I ran into the differences amongst jurisdiction when I requested police reports involving Mr. West as the alleged perp in S. Lake Tahoe California, Sioux Falls, SD.  I had to send subpoenas.  Redaction policies differ too.  When people can commit crimes and simply move to another state, within the United States without consequence and it leads to more victimization, something is wrong.  That shouldn't be the case in this modern information age.  When the Springfield Police did a background check, Mr. West's warrant out of S. Dakota from his indictment there didn't even show up!
Some of the people discussed on this blog are or have been supposed directors of what have been purported to be charitable foundations, The Myria Foundation, and The Encyclopedia Foundation, and so are public figures subject to public scrutiny of their character. I was a duped into becoming involved, first as a "director" of The Encyclopedia Foundation and then as a "Founding Director" of The Myria Foundation, which I co-created, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid to incorporate The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss it. This is MY life, and I am a witness to and victim of crimes no one seems to want to do anything about (though last I knew there is an open criminal case against him in Sangamon County). I have over 2 feet of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors I write about here have been reported to the FBI, the Attorney General's office in Illinois, the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, the Ashtabula County, Oh, Sheriff and prosecutor, the Sangamon County, IL, Sheriff, and are part of various court records. It is my layman's opinion that Dean West is a sociopath, based on observed and documented behaviors. "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." As a good citizen of the USA, I am outraged that Mr. West has been allowed to victimize me. His modus operandi is so clear. He uses his current female victim/s to help him get away with what he did to the last one. The domestic violence community is missing the boat on that aspect: women who stay in abusive relationships are sick. Allowing them to determine public policy and prosecution does not protect the public. Most men who beat women do not murder, they simply move on to the next victim. Most recently, Mr. West was charged with Domestic Violence against yet another female partner/director of the "foundation" (but she didn't show up at the trial and Judge Sanchez wouldn't grant the prosecutor a continuance to find her!) and just prior to that was on probation for resisting a peace officer, which started out as assault of a police officer. I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and there is a felony warrant for him out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota right now also for a sixth degree felony, violation of a stalking restraining order.
