Before I continue with the saga of Cleo’s estate, I want to insert this little observation.
From time to time, Cathy produces a document from her past. She tends to offer this stuff up as evidence of something or other.
Stuff like that check. I went into this a couple of years ago at the link above, and then in more detail, recently, when I got more information, here.
As I mentioned on that page, I got the files. I got the archival stuff.
Cathy thinks that Lisa Luthi got it for me, but that’s not true. Somebody else did. But one interesting little thing: Cathy uses “lesbian” as a pejorative. She’s attempting to insult both of us.
This is a common claim they made, that I am somehow still a fundamentalist Christian. But I would never use “lesbian” as an insult. It would be no different than trying to insult Deb by calling her a red-head, or Lisa by calling her retired. Who, exactly, is exhibiting characteristics of fundamentalism, like homophobia?
But there’s more.
This is sort of typical. She says that she’s had these documents “in her possession for years.”
She implies that she actually owns the original document and it resides in her home and has for years. She never says where she got the documents. She just has them.
See how she puts up those photos like she has them? Like they came out of a family picture album? You know, memories?
It turns out that she doesn’t have the originals of any of them.
Here are my copies of those photographs she has above.
There are more. I’ll put them all up later.
The documents I have came from two places. One was the Bucks County Courthouse. Those are all the papers from Cleo’s estate, the probate papers, the guardianship paperwork, her will, her death certificate.
I have known for a long time that the McIntire papers were at Princeton University, but they are not online. And there are, as you can see, 669 boxes of them. Daunting indeed. There has been some cataloguing done, but still it’s a task to go through them.
So my source arranged for a researcher to go through those papers and find anything related to Cleo, or the farm, or Bethel Baptist Church, or Richard Harris. Some of the results include the paperwork regarding the farm agreement, but also include things like scribbled notes on the back of envelopes and handwritten memos and yes, photos taken at the cow pasture rally.
Those documents that Cathy provided above and says that she’s “had in her possession for years” actually reside at Princeton University in the Carl McIntire archive. I know, because I have copies of them too.
Cathy has quite obviously done exactly what my source did, and gotten a researcher to go through those papers, or she went to Princeton and did it herself.
Now, consider this. Would Cathy have gone to all the trouble to go to Princeton (or contact Princeton and pay a researcher) looking for papers about Cleo in Carl McIntire’s archives, and she didn’t bother to check at the local fucking courthouse?
I assure you that my source did the courthouse first. It was the easier thing to do, by far. Any sane person would start there.
Furthermore, Cathy insists that she has filed police reports, and talked with the FBI, and has had this ongoing investigation for years and years. I’ve been told that I will be put in jail because I am openly doubting the story of a supposed federal witness in a current investigation.
But nobody went to the courthouse.
She didn’t know about the guardianship papers. She didn’t know they were at the courthouse. She didn’t find them. The police didn’t find them. The FBI didn’t find them. They’ve had years to do this.
Lisa and I supposedly knew about the guardianship papers before Cathy did.
Karen mentions it in the comment where she calls me a fundamentalist above.
Just so we’re not mistaken, here. Cathy never knew about the guardianship filing until I posted the paperwork online. She didn’t know.
She’s got Alzheimer’s.
Somebody needs to help her. Seriously. She’s lost her memory. She can’t remember shit.
The screen shot below came from one of the Manhater pages. The date on the file in my computer is September 8, 2014. That’s when I made the screen shot.
She’s taunting Jeffrey Hoffman. She’s talking about court documents. She has been digging around in this for a long time, she says. She found the deed transfer for the farm. She has both Lou’s and Cleos’ death records. She knows the names of most of their extended family members. Those sorts of records weren’t at Princeton University in the McIntire archives. Why would they be? They were at the Bucks County Courthouse. And she had them, in September of 2014, three years ago.
But the best is highlighted in yellow.
