Eighteen-year-old Linda Stoltzfoos had not been seen since last June when her family reported her missing. She was walking home from church in the Bird-in-Hand section of Lancaster in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish country.
Some early media accounts speculated she had run away from her community. The go-to position for woke types?
You may have seen this story. I usually prefer to post news you might not see elsewhere, but this one, although widely covered, really got to me.
Perhaps that is because the Amish have chosen to live a quiet God-centered life just so they could be separate from the world’s evil doers.
After reading several accounts of what happened earlier this week when the young woman’s body was found, I’ll go to my usual first choice media outlet for cases like this—the UK Daily Mail.
The man, the alleged killer, was already behind bars and charged with murder. Even without the body, they have the goods on the “career criminal” thanks to extensive police work, DNA evidence, witnesses, cell phone data tracking, and surveillance camera evidence.
None of the reports say how authorities found the body, but I am guessing the evil creep gave them the tip as part of a plea deal to help save his hide.
Body wrapped in tarp and buried in 3ft grave IS missing Amish girl, 18, who vanished on way home from church: Remains were found behind workplace of man charged with murder
Human remains found during a search Wednesday are that of the missing Amish teenager who disappeared in Pennsylvania last summer, officials believe.
Linda Stoltzfoos, 18, was last seen walking home from a church service in the Bird-in-Hand area of Lancaster on on June 21 last year. She never returned home.
In December last year Justo Smoker, 34, was charged with criminal homicide. Officials said then that the suspect’s DNA was discovered on the victim’s stocking, which had been found buried in the woods alongside her bra.
He had moved her body
Lancaster County DA Heather Adams said Thursday they now believe Stoltzfoos was killed within hours of her kidnap and initially buried at that location before her body was moved to where it was found Wednesday.
The remains were found buried more than three feet down and wrapped in a tarp behind Dutchland Incorporated, the former workplace of Smoker in a rural area in the eastern part of Lancaster County, she said.
A a dress, bonnet and shoes matching what Linda was last seen in were also found. Prosecutors noted that Wednesday marked exactly 10 months since Stoltzfoos disappeared.”
“Fraud data is like the world’s messiest crime scene.”
(Jay Valentine at American Thinker)
I’m glad there are some, like Valentine, willing to do the tedious work to solve the crime….
It would be a tragedy of immense proportions if the 2020 Election fraud is never fully investigated.
When I got up this morning, I knew I had a half a dozen dreadful violent crime stories along the lines of other recent posts, that I should post, but I just couldn’t do it. They make me sick. They are mostly crimes of one race killing or attacking those of another race. See Gateway Punditas an example.
It seems, at least to me, that those crimes are increasing as one race is being elevated above all others, and as a result of the pandemic fear (used to take away our freedoms) generated by power hungry politicians who have gained much more power through the great 2020 election steal.
It isn’t real power. It is power gained through lies, immoral behavior and brazen fraud, and they know it.
So, rather than yet another outrageous and sickening murder story today, that does nothing other than make us more fearful, we should be focusing on never giving up on asserting that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen, and never giving up on proving it.
Below writer Jay Valentine at American Thinkerdescribes how some are not giving up and are using data to prove that there is no way Joe Biden and Kamala Harris legitimately received the highest number of votes in any Presidential election ever.
The big problem we have is who is going to spread the word on what the data investigators are finding when most of our media is doing everything possible to bury the facts and silence and demean anyone who brings forward proof.
Election Fraud Hotspots – 10% of the Data are 70% of the Fraud
The more our team looked at the 2020 election fraud from publicly available records, the more it appeared to have similar characteristics to property casualty insurance fraud.
Beginning in November, like many citizens, we witnessed election fraud possibilities any sentient person would investigate.Having backgrounds in fraud detection, particularly in the property casualty insurance business, Medicaid fraud, and cyber fraud, gave us a curiosity that never dissipated.
Our interest is 100% in data analysis. That means looking at the actual votes, the addresses, the information about ballots reported to Secretaries of State. While there are all kinds of other fraud, the best way to light it up is with data analysis.
Not just the statistical stuff with the graphs and Greek symbols, but old fashioned rows and columns. Nothing illegal, just the same public data Google uses to profile someone for new running shoes.
If Jesse Morgandid drive a tractor trailer truck with 100,000 ballots from New York to Pennsylvania, how can we find out? Chris Wray and our hardy pals at the FBI may not want to open that truck’s back door, but we do – with database analysis.
I took a few minutes to watch truck driver Morgan’s press conference in December, you might want to watch it too….
American Thinker continues….
They can hide the truck. They can claim it never happened. They cannot hide the record of the ballot.
Imagine yourself trying to fake 100,000 ballots. Even with some of your pals, lots of them, sitting around tables with pizza and Cokes and #2 pencils, it’s daunting. Every ballot needs to tie to an address. Each ties to a name. This is fraud infrastructure.
While you and your friends are filling out 100,000 ballots with Biden circles, do you think you took the time to use a different, real address for every one of them? Or, more likely, did you use a small group of addresses over and over? You get the picture.
Citizen election fraud investigators are coalescing across multiple states sharing information, fraud profiles and actual data. We are helping with fraud investigative expertise and search technology beyond anything commercially available.
Valentine’s thesis is that a small number of people, who knew each other are responsible for the fraud.
Our thesis is that 70% of all 2020 election fraud will be tied to 10% of the records. Like insurance fraud, election fraud has cultural affinities. It also has geographic patterns and links to a small number of people who deliver the overwhelming amount of fraud.
We broke a major insurance fraud ring showing a group of Somali immigrants, living in the same building, driving the same car, had scammed a major insurance company. Sure they did, they knew each other. This happens all the time; the data show it.
He explains the type of thing they are learning….
Data visualization shows hotspots – like red wine stains on a white tablecloth.
Isn’t it interesting that 634 people with the same birthday, including the year, live at these seven addresses? Digging deeper, look, the address is not a physical location, it is a UPS store with mailboxes. That’s a crowded P.O. Box!
Look here, different family members live in different mailboxes with the same surname. The mailboxes are consecutive numbers, too! That’s so convenient for Thanksgiving dinner!
This is what industrial fraud starts to look like and there are plenty of data from December Secretary of State data files to prove this.
Of course, this is how they did it and there is much more. Read it all.
And, above all, keep talking! Send stories like this to your friends and family members! This isn’t about vindicating Donald Trump, it is about saving the country.
P.S. For those of you who don’t read RRWregularly, know that I have been doing a weekly round-up of refugee news. See yesterday’s post here and see why the refugee contractors heads are exploding as Biden has not yet done their bidding.
This interview with Sean Hannity last night is a must watch.
I know it is one of the many many examples of patriotic Americans coming forward to say they witnessed some aspect of the massive, apparently coordinated fraud, but I was particularly interested in the destination of pallets of ballots driven across state lines to Lancaster, PA.
First watch the video. I guess Fox News has realized that they better let some of their hosts talk about the big steal or suffer more defections to Newsmax or OAN!
What do you think of when you think of Lancaster, PA? I bet it’s the bucolic countryside and the large peaceful Amish community there!
I think of how Lancaster, PA changed my life in 2007 when Muslim refugees from Russia were supposed to be placed there and instead were diverted to my rural county in Maryland. It was that act that caused me to spend the next 13 years writing my other blog Refugee Resettlement Watch.
Lancaster, PA is considered the ‘Refugee Capital of the USA’a reputation that Church World Service has nurtured for over a decade. CWSis one of nine federal resettlement contractors that is working to change America by changing the people. CWS is a leading member of the ‘religious’ Left and a politically active socialist group.
The city of Lancaster’s leadershipis about as far Left as it could be. It would be a very good place to hide (until needed) pallets of ballots generated in New York.
What a coincidence! Two stories came my way yesterday, one from Tennessee and the other from Pennsylvania, where whistleblowers filed cases against large companies they said were scamming the US taxpayers and were handsomely rewarded for their good work on our behalf.
Tennessee-Based Health Services Company Settles FCA Case Alleging Medicaid Fraud For $9.5 Million
The Department of Justice (“DOJ”) announced another False Claims Act (“FCA”) settlement centered around a health services company’s practice of providing unnecessary therapy services to patients in order to receive the maximum amount of reimbursement under Medicare. The $9.5 million settlement is with Diversicare Health Services Inc, a Tennessee-based company that provides nursing and rehabilitation services at 74 locations throughout the country. Diversicare’s alleged violations are similar to those in a medicaid fraud case settled by the DOJ for $15.4 million two weeks earlier concerning fraudulent Medicare reimbursements for unnecessary rehabilitation services.
The settlement resolves two separate qui tam FCA lawsuits filed by whistleblowers Mary Haggard and Bryant Fitzmorris, both former Diversicare employees. Ms. Haggard will receive a whistleblower award of roughly $1.4 million, and Mr. Fitzmorris will receive $145,350. The FCA allows private citizens who possess inside information of fraudulently billing against the United States Government to initiate a lawsuit on the Government’s behalf to recover those funds. The citizens, known as qui tam relators, are then entitled to receive a share of any damages that the Government ultimately recovers from the litigation.
Guardian Elder Care Will Pay $15.4 Million to Resolve Allegations of Medicare Fraud – Whistleblowers Will Receive $2.8 Million
Guardian Elder Care Holdings Inc. and a list of related entities, including Guardian LTC Management and Guardian Rehabilitation Services (collectively, Guardian), have agreed to pay $15.4 million to settle a False Claims Act lawsuit. According to the complaint, Guardian billed government healthcare programs for medically unnecessary services. The company allegedly defrauded both Medicare and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.
Pennsylvania-headquartered Guardian operates over 50 nursing facilities in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. According to the whistleblower lawsuit filed by two rehab managers who worked at a Guardian facility in Carlisle, Guardian caused some of its facilities in all three states to bill the government for medically unnecessary services, at the highest level of Medicare reimbursement, solely to maximize profits.
The whistleblower complaint resolved by the $15.4 million settlement was filed under the False Claims Act (“FCA”). Under the FCA, whistleblowers with original information about a fraud can come forward and become eligible for an award ranging between 10 and 30 percent of any resulting recovery. The two whistleblowers in this case, Philippa Krauss and Julie White, will share a $2.8 million award.
How many more companies are ripping off US taxpayers via Medicare and Medicaid fraud? I bet a lot. So if you work for one and suspect fraud, check into becoming a whistleblower—it is the patriotic thing to do!
I have a bunch of posts about other successful whistleblowers,see here.
Movita Johnson-Harrell has been charged (and plead guilty!) in a massive fraud scheme involving embezzlement from Medicare and Medicaid, charity fraud, and other assorted fraudulent schemes.
Although the story did get a fair amount of media coverage, I hadn’t heard about it until a reader, Judy, alerted me to a detailed article at American Thinkerentitled:
CAIR Pennsylvania Poster Girl Resigns in Shame
Movita Johnson-Harrell seemed to take pride in her position as the first Muslim woman elected to the Pennsylvania State Legislature. Now that record will forever have an asterisk next to it as Johnson-Harrell has turned herself in to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s Office, pleading guilty on charges of perjury, record tampering, and embezzling over $500,000 in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds, as well as donations to Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she established to allegedly serve the mentally ill and drug addicted poor in her predominately African-American neighborhood.
[Rally for Ilhan is herein case link under photo won’t work.—ed]
In a press conference, Attorney General Shapiro described Johnson-Harrell’s actions as “brazen corruption… her theft knew no bounds.” Johnson-Harrell stole funds that personally belonged to the residents of her facilities and used it to purchase fox furs, trips to Mexico, to make payments on a Porsche, pay delinquent utility bills, cover her granddaughter’s private school tuition and even fund her political campaign. After the facility, where residents were living in squalor, was closed, Johnson-Harrell continued collecting their rent from MECA even though the facilities were no longer operating.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Johnson-Harrell’s dereliction of duty extended to her short time as a Pennsylvania state representative.
During her brief period in office, Johnson-Harrell seemed to spend the majority of her time celebrating herself as the first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature, and helping to fundraise and advocate for the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Two months after being in office Johnson Harrell flew across the country to Washington State to stand with anti-Israel BDS supporter Congresswoman Ilhan Omar at a CAIR fundraiser with a separatist theme “Muslim Power for 2020 & Beyond.”
Author Leonard Getz has done a lot of work on this piece, so please visit for more of the disgusting news.
I’m joking, but because I see so many stories, I do wonder if there are Muslim training programs that teach their followers how to scam the infidels through Medicare and Medicaid fraud, Food Stamp fraud and the all-too-common Day Care Fraud.
With how far Left Pennsylvania is moving, I’m actually surprised the Attorney General would go after a Muslim ‘rising star.’
Gives us all hope!
Don’t forget to visit Refugee Resettlement Watchas the refugee program is again on front pages of newspapers across the country forcing me to spend more time there then here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’
LOL! However, there is some crossover between my blogs!
Just as I was wrapping up I came across this (below)! Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolfwas the first governor in the US to tell the President to send the state more impoverished refugees for the state’s taxpayers to take care of.
.@RepMovita Johnson-Harrell made history this week as the first Muslim woman to join the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Diversity in public service is vital to our democracy and makes us stronger.
