Down the Memory Hole: Story about Mt. Holyoke Professor nearly Killing Fellow Professor has Disappeared

How many stories have I posted here at Frauds and Crooks over the last year and a half about crooks, criminals and murderers that have completely disappeared from the news because the alleged criminal doesn’t fit the medias’ spin on who could possibly be a criminal and who can’t.

When Japanese-born (new American!) art professor Rie Hachiyanagi nearly beat to death a fellow female professor at the exclusive Massachusetts college Mt Holyoke, the story made an initial splash in local and state media (never made it to the big time that I ever saw).  I reported it here in January.

But, when reader Cathy recently checked to see what ever happened to the story, she found only a piece at Town and Country published in early April and now poof! the story is gone!

I’ve been thinking that I do need to go back and check on crimes I’ve previously posted and see just how many of those that do not fit the Left’s favorite propaganda have just disappeared as if they never happened.

Wikipedia has this description of the “memory hole,” a place where inconvenient or embarrassing information goes to die.

LOL! It is where Brennan, Clapper, Comey and Peter Strzok assumed their corrupt dealings would go once Hillary was elected.

A memory hole is any mechanism for the deliberate alteration or disappearance of inconvenient or embarrassing documents, photographs, transcripts or other records, such as from a website or other archive, particularly as part of an attempt to give the impression that something never happened.[1][2] The concept was first popularized by George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, where the Party’s Ministry of Truth systematically re-created all potentially embarrassing historical documents, in effect, re-writing all of history to match the often-changing state propaganda. These changes were complete and undetectable.

I’m making a new category entitled ‘Down the Memory Hole’ and this is my first installment….

Obsession and Assault: The Violent Crime That Rocked Mount Holyoke

In the early morning hours of Christmas Eve last year, the Massachusetts state police were dispatched to the home of a longtime professor at Mount Holyoke College. When the on-duty trooper arrived at the home in Leverett, not far from the college, he found a horrific scene: the professor alive but severely wounded, covered in her own blood. As details of the night began to leak out in the weeks that followed, students returned to campus, but without the feeling of lightness and possibility that normally accompanies a new semester at one of America’s prettiest and most prestigious schools.

So much for diversity is strength! Art Professor Rie Hachiyanagi arrested in violent attack at all the women’s college which brags that it is an “inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff in an environment of mutual respect in which all thrive and contribute to the flourishing of others.”

Instead, there was an almost palpable feeling that something was not right here, and perhaps hasn’t been for some time. Because there was a single fact about the incident that was now widely known: The person charged with committing the violence was another one of their beloved professors.

By March, Rie Hachiyanagi, 48, had been sitting in a cell at the Franklin County House of Correction for months, having been denied bail in late February.

[….]

Mount Holyoke quickly distanced itself from Hachiyanagi, emphasizing that the attack occurred during winter recess and off campus, and that the alleged perpetrator has been placed on administrative leave and is banned from campus. The college produced no representatives to speak about Hachiyanagi. There seemed to be a hope that if no one uttered her name she would vanish that much ­sooner—a ghastly figment of the past.

[….]

Judge Mark D. Mason decided to hold Hachiya­nagi without bail, and she will await trial from the county jail. Her next court date, a pretrial conference, is scheduled for April 22.

 

There is much, much more here.

Maybe you can find out what happened at that April 22nd pretrial conference, but I couldn’t!

Massachusetts Man, Egyptian National, Charged in Sexual Exploitation of a Minor Case

Okay, this is a pretty straightforward story about an Egyptian who made his way to Texas allegedly to take advantage of a minor and he got caught.

Ho hum…

…but is he also the bagel guy (with the same name) from the same town in Massachusetts—Winchester?  Does anyone know?

From and ICE press release:

Unlawfully present Egyptian national charged with child exploitation-related offenses against South Texas minor

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – An Egyptian national who is illegally present in the U.S. was indicted Monday on several charges related to the alleged exploitation of a South Texas minor.

U.S. Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations in Corpus Christi, Texas, conducted the investigation along with the George West (Texas) Police Department, Live Oak County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office and Texas Department of Public Safety.

Ehab Sadeek, 47, who resides in Winchester, Massachusetts, was indicted June 29 by a Corpus Christi grand jury on charges of online solicitation of a minor, travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct and transfer of obscene materials to a minor.He was initially charged by criminal complaint and made an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Julie K. Hampton. At that time, the court found probable cause that he committed the alleged offenses and ordered him into custody. He will appear again in federal court in the near future on the indictment.

The charges allege Sadeek used interstate and foreign commerce to knowingly persuade, induce, entice and coerce a minor victim in Live Oak County (Texas) to engage in sexual activity. From May 7 to May 26, Sadeek allegedly transferred obscene material to the same victim, knowing she was less than 16 years of age. According to the allegations, Sadeek traveled from Massachusetts to Texas with the intent to commit sexual offenses.

Now here is the news from ten years ago about a bagel maker who threatened to boil his daughter in the bagel kettle.  He has the same name and would be 47 years old today.  But who knows maybe (coincidentally) there are a whole passel of Ehab Sadeeks in Winchester, Mass!

From 2010 in the Boston Herald:

Staties probe possible threats against juror, lawyer

State police are investigating possible threats against a juror and a defense attorney in the case of a Muslim bagel-maker acquitted of charges he plotted to boil his teenage daughter alive in an industrial kettle.

The probe was launched yesterday to determine whether the threats warrant criminal charges.

[….]

Sadeek, 37, an Egyptian national and owner of Bagel Land in Winchester, was found not guilty March 22 of more than a dozen charges stemming from his 15-year-old daughter’s claim that he beat her, held her down with a knife and threatened to toss her in his company’s bagel boiler for dating an 18-year-old boy.

Prosecutors argued the girl’s mother fled back to Egypt in 2008 to escape her husband, and that Sadeek violated a restraining order meant to protect his daughter.

Sadeek remains in custody, pending a hearing on his immigration status.

If it is the same ‘new American’ then I guess he didn’t remain in custody for too long!

If you live in Winchester, Mass. and know if the Texas alleged Egyptian perv is the same guy as the Bagel Land Egyptian, let me know!

 

Boston “Man” Nabbed for Stealing Millions from PPP Program

Reader Tom sent me a story from Sundance at the Conservative Treehouse about how Elijah Majak Buoi has been busy amassing millions of dollars meant to help small businesses survive the Chinese virus crisis.

The Conservative Treehouse story is here.  And the press release from the US Justice Department is here.

There is lots of coverage of the “man” who I am guessing is a ‘new American’ from Africa (Sudan maybe?), but I was searching for a story that might have a photo and found this one at Universal Hub:

Area man charged with $2 million in coronavirus loan fraud

Federal prosecutors today charged a Winchester man with wire fraud for his four applications for federal loans aimed at helping small businesses continue to make payroll despite losses related to Covid-19, alleging he made up employee numbers and that the few employees he does have are all based in India.

According to a federal complaint unsealed today, Elijah Majak Buoi of Winchester was rejected for three of his applications for Paycheck Protection Program loans – which can be converted to grants – but was granted $2 million on the fourth, despite giving different employee and payroll numbers on the applications.

In addition to having Buoi arrested today, the US Attorney’s office is asking a judge to freeze his bank accounts so he cannot transfer the money he received out of the country. At his arraignment, a federal magistrate judge in Worcester set cash bail of $15,000.

[….]

The affidavit*** states that Buoi first filed a PPP application with Bank of America in April for $7.5 million, based on the 353 employees he said he had, all allegedly in Massachusetts. After the bank rejected his request, he tried again with three other lenders, asking each for $2 million, with his employee count on applications ranging from 18 to 96 employees.

The first two lenders also rejected his requests, but the final one, to which he claimed he had 96 US employees, approved his request and he had $2 million deposited in his Bank of America checking account earlier this month.

According to the affidavit, Buoi’s LinkedIn page says he has just five employees, and all are in India, making them ineligible for PPP coverage.

[….]

According to the affidavit, Buoi transferred some $1.2 million of the PPP payment from one Bank of America account to another and has withdrawn $27,000 of it – $20,000 in a wire transfer to India.

The US government was able to get most of our money back.

Massachusetts: New American Doc Charged in Strangulation Death of Wife

I saw the story first a few days ago at the UK Daily Mail which as usual was ahead of most of the local Boston news stories.

Surgeon arrested for murdering his missing wife in Massachusetts whose remains are found near their home two days after she went missing

A surgeon was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife whose remains were found in an outdoor area near the home they shared in Massachusetts after she went missing earlier this week, authorities said.

Tuerk and McLean appear to be enjoying an Oktoberfest gathering in a photo obtained by the Daily Mail.

Ingolf Tuerk, 58, was accused of killing his wife Kathleen McLean, 45, whose remains were found in an outdoor area near their Valley Road home in Dover late Saturday. How she died was not disclosed.

McLean, who was last seen in her home, had been missing since Thursday. By Saturday, Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey’s office issued a statement calling McLean’s disappearance ‘suspicious’ and said an investigation was underway.

The surgeon, born in Germany, had earlier this year been dismissed from St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center over allegations of falsely billing Medicaid, says the Daily Mail.

Read it all yourself.

I’ve now spent way too much time reading subsequent news accounts of how the controlling Tuerk behaved in the months leading up to the strangulation death of his new wife.

By the way, he has two teenage children and she has three according to some reports.

Here is a column from the Boston Globe that gives us some additional insight into the truly disgusting story that hopefully serves as a warning to women whether they are 45 years old like Katie McLean or 17 like that poor girl decapitated by a sicko in Sweden.

They were a couple of healers. Now one is charged with murdering the other

They got married in Las Vegas 11 days before Christmas.

Fifty-one days later, he was out of their house in Dover.

She filed for divorce two months after their wedding.

Three months after that, she was dead.

In five months, from the moment Kathleen “Katie” McLean said “I do,” to the moment State Police divers found her body Saturday in a pond near the home she shared with her husband Dr. Ingolf “Harry” Tuerk, her marriage and life dissolved into a disturbing text-book case of domestic violence.

Even after her husband choked her, even after filing charges against him, even after filing for divorce, Katie McLean took him back and tried to reconcile. Maybe because, as survivors of domestic violence in their desperation sometimes hope, she thought that might get him to stop hurting her.

She withdrew her divorce papers. She asked Norfolk County prosecutors to drop the conditions that kept her husband out of their home, but Assistant District Attorney Michael Pirrello refused and two judges agreed with him. But when she withdrew the restraining order, Tuerk was back in.

Now prosecutors, who carry the sobering knowledge that men who choke their wives in a fit of rage don’t change overnight, will try Harry Tuerk for the strangulation murder of his wife.

Despite their age difference, Tuerk, 58, and McLean, 45, had something in common. They were healers. He was a renowned urologist, an especially prolific surgeon. She was a practitioner of Reiki, a non-invasive alternative approach that stimulates the body’s natural healing process.

At 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, Tuerk was an Olympic athlete for his native East Germany and remained an imposing figure, towering over his colleagues during surgeries, which, according to a 2004 Globe profile, he performed in bare feet while blasting classic rock.

But, after Tuerk’s career ended abruptly, what might be seen as quirky behavior could also manifest itself as controlling, such as his refusal to tell his wife the code for their home’s thermostat. According to police, after McLean took out a restraining order, Tuerk remotely dropped the temperature in the house to 54 degrees.

More here.  That last bit I highlighted speaks volumes.

Question: Do restraining orders ever work?

Bail Denied in Professor on Professor Attack in Massachusetts

Another story the national media is avoiding like the plague! 

Why? My guess is that because it involves a ‘new American’ committing crimes against Americans (on a lesser scale of course than our Kenyan Killer) and that is not a good look for the Lefties running the media in Donald Trump’s America.

Rie Hachiyanagi with attorney. Hachiyanagi reportedly came to the US as a high school exchange student from Japan and never went home.

This is an update of that very weird news we reported here and here about the December attack on a female Mt. Holyoke professor by a fellow female Mt. Holyoke professor who attempted to kill her colleague in a case of (supposedly) unrequited love.

Here is the latest news from a couple of weeks ago at the Daily Hampshire Gazette about the strange event at the elite (“inclusive”!) Mt. Holyoke. Thanks to reader Cathy for finding it.

Mount Holyoke professor accused of assault denied bail

GREENFIELD — Judge Mark D. Mason on Wednesday morning withheld the right to bail of a Mount Holyoke College professor accused of using a rock, fire poker and garden shears to attack a colleague in the alleged victim’s home late last year.

Rie Hachiyanagi, 48, of South Hadley, pleaded not guilty in Franklin County Superior Court last week to three counts of armed assault to murder a person age 60 or older, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person age 60 or older, and single counts of mayhem, home invasion and entering a dwelling at night for a felony.

According to a report from Massachusetts State Trooper Geraldine L. Bresnahan, the alleged victim told police Hachiyanagi arrived at her Leverett home unannounced late at night on Dec. 23 and said she “wanted to talk about her feelings.” After being invited inside, Hachiyanagi allegedly attacked the victim, striking her with multiple implements including “fists, rocks, garden clippers and a fire poker.” All objects were recovered by investigators.

The alleged victim, who was present with supporters in court Wednesday, told authorities she believed Hachiyanagi was going to kill her. According to the report, when the victim asked why Hachiyanagi was attacking her, the assailant allegedly said “that she loved her for many years and (she) should have known.” Bresnahan’s report also states the victim convinced Hachiyanagi to stop the attack and call 911 by “playing along” and lying about having reciprocating feelings.

Continue reading to see the kinds of points Hachiyanagi’s attorney raises in his failed bid for her release on bail.  And, if you are wondering, the victim’s identity has not been made public (except surely everyone at Mt. Holyoke knows who she is).
