I was puttering around in the kitchen just now when the memory of Martha from Holland came to my mind. Martha's story and the name and phone number of a contact from Springfield Jehovah's Witnesses Kingdom Hall that helped her get back to Holland was given to the Springfield Police Department. Did they investigate it? I don't know, but I did my duty. I wonder if the SPD ever passed the information on to the FBI?
Martha was a woman from Holland Dean had been pursuing a relationship with. He told me his version, after the fact, and others who frequented the Jehovah's Witness discussion board on MSN reported the information to me. In fact, two of Dean's victims for which there are warrants for his arrest from Sioux Falls, SD and Paterson, NJ, observed what he was doing to Martha. They didn't know that Mr. West had married Kathy Warren, of Springfield, after knowing her a very short time. He did not reveal that information to Martha as she prepared to travel to the United States, reportedly giving up everything for Dean, who did pose as a practicing Jehovah's Witness in his pursuit of a "submissive Christian wife." According to Dean and confirmed by the gentleman I spoke to at the Kingdom Hall, Dean had met with Martha and left her stranded in Springfield with no way to get home. So, Mr. West allowed this poor woman to travel to America, with no concern for her well-being or her future, so that he could escape his marriage if the grass was truly greener with Martha. Leland Grove police reports support the fact that there was trouble in the marriage early on. In fact, Dean and Kathy claimed that they hadn't lived together for six months in court documents for their first dissolution filed in Sangamon County Court. It is my understanding that the back and forth pattern of their relationship continued during that supposed period of separation, enough so that Kathy Warren signed a cashier's check for the purchase of the "foundation" house during those months they told the court they were apart. A dissolution goes much faster if the parties swear they were separated for six months prior. Mr. West began pursuing me in July of 2007, by telephone, and knowing his pattern as I do, I believe he manipulated things so that Kathy would file for dissolution at that time. If he wants to get rid of a woman, he will sometimes act in a way to make it her idea to split up with him. Also, according to him, Dean coerced Kathy into signing off her interest in the Stanford Avenue "foundation" house by the use of blackmail, having to do with the money Kathy Warren's father had instructed her to divide amongst her family when he went into a nursing home. Have I given this information to the police and prosecutor? Yes. Do they care? They tried to nail Mr. West last year on the DV charge but didn't even bother to investigate whether his pattern would continue, and whether he was violating the criminal restraining order by having Kathleen Callahan living at the "foundation" house.
The New Jersey victim and one of the South Dakota victims (there were two) reportedly observed Martha and Dean, on the Jehovah's Witness blog, conversing about what had happened. This is a key example of the MO of Mr. West and the messed up thinking of his victims: Dean could be observed lecturing Martha about "loyalty." "Loyalty" violations are a big issue with Mr. West when he attempts to turn things around on us victims. And when you are so far gone in your own thinking, as I was and as the others have been, you actually take it on! Even if the truth is screaming inside you to get out and have its' way, the lies of a madman sometimes, or often, win. There is a great deal of rationalization that goes on to stay with a man like that for any period of time and, some sick needs looking for a way to be met. I have posted this link before:
Women Who Love Psychopaths – 2nd. Ed. – e-book It is beneficial to look at what was going on inside ourselves when we took up with someone the likes of Dean West. That author is trying to make a living helping victims. She is free to do so, but there is a lot that is NOT being done to bring real change in our laws and in the law enforcement "industry," because many of the people trying to help victims are working at conflicting purposes. There are women who are working to find a niche, a career, and their own empowerment through "helping" victims. If they would recognize their own human tendency to put the self first, they might rethink some of their own actions or inactions. Some of the people who are trying to "help" victims are actually trying to fit into the very systems the citizens need changed, for their own survival.
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!
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
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. Any questions?
