A Private Investigator In Need

with one comment

The past five (5) days I have really made some posts designed to inspire humor and laughter, while at the same time “striking back” at two (2) individuals that have attempted to cause me some discomfort for no other reason than they are just malicious and mean-spirited people. I hope the audience here has found those posts entertaining.

But now it is time to talk about something very serious. I have an associate in Phoenix, AZ. who is a Licensed Private Investigator, that has just recently started her business up again. She used to be a Private Investigator and then left the business to spend more time with her family. Her husband became very ill and she went back into Private Investigation work to help support her family, she focused her work areas on work she could do from home so she could take care of her husband too. She is a nice lady, that has made a lot of sacrifices and has worked hard to try to be a good wife, a good business lady, and a good person. Her name is: Dondi (Dee) Lucia Frigerio-Holmes.

Dee has found herself in a terrible situation that any of us could find ourselves in, and I am here to ask you to consider helping her with whatever you can afford to offer. I have an excerpt from Dee that I would like to share with you all, so you can see the situation she is in here:

“My husband passed away Thursday evening. He has been ill for some time and his care had come to consume my days. I had a regular job that I lost a couple of years ago due to the economy going bust and figured I would start another PI agency so I could be home and take care of my husband and still make a salary. Unfortunately my PI biz has not taken off as quickly as I had hoped and my husband’s health declined rapidly. We were barely making ends meet and have had to sell off personal things to make ends meet most months. My husband had gained a great deal of weight so his funeral expenses are higher, we have no insurance (he was a vet so VA insured, his illness not service related so they will not pay for funeral) and I have no money for his cremation.”

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a terrible position for this lady to be in. This lady has to get her husband’s burial needs attended to by tomorrow; Monday 03/07/2011. I could not help but feel terrible for this lady because she is a colleague but most of all because she is a decent human being that just wants to try to lay her husband to rest and try to move on with her life. I’d like to ask for your assistance in helping this lady in any way you can. I’d like to list her contact details and an email to her PayPal account, so if you can find it in your heart to help her to lay her husband to rest, you will be able to do so. Below are Dee’s contact details:

I hope that the people reading this can help this lady to lay her husband to rest in a dignified manner. With all of the hatred and malice occurring at our Military Veteran’s Funerals; wouldn’t it be nice to know that you did something to help just one of them and his family out in their time of need?

Thank you all for your time and for your readership.

Take care.

Justice For David Riley And His Family

leave a comment »

If you have been following this blog then you are aware of The David Riley Case. It has been all over this blog. Of course you have seen the mistreatment of David Riley at the hands of the Columbia Police Department. Of course you know that David Riley took a plea deal to do two (2) years in the Missouri Department of Corrections after being “blackmailed” by Boone County Prosecutor Brent Nelson into this plea arrangement.

Of course we all know that if a person has a family and they are the victim of an overzealous Prosecutor that causes them to be wrongfully imprisoned; there are more victims than just the defendant in a case like this. That defendant’s family also becomes victimized by this overzealous Prosecutor. In the David Riley case, there is his wife and three (3) children that are the victims of Prosecutor Brent Nelson’s underhanded tactics.

Prior to this incident that occurred at the Ultra-Mart in Columbia, MO. between David Riley and the Columbia Police Department; David Riley and his wife Lucaya Riley owned and operated a successful business that allowed them to make a legitimate and honest living. David and Lucaya Riley owned AC Auto Sales; they sold used cars and classic cars. Below is a picture of the shop in Columbia, MO. that they used to own:

David and Lucaya Riley earned a nice living that allowed them to live an upper middle class lifestyle. David Riley was able to provide for his family though his hard work at the shop that he and Lucaya owned. David Riley was able to provide well for his wife and children and he was a good father to his children and husband to his wife. Below is a picture of David Riley’s home prior to him being incarcerated in the Missouri Department of Corrections:

David and Lucaya Riley have three (3) adorable children that were well cared for prior to the incident that Occurred at the Ultra-Mart in Columbia, MO. when David Riley was arrested by the Columbia Police Department. These children became innocent victims of Prosecutor Brent Nelson’s underhanded prosecutorial techniques.  Here is a picture of David and Lucaya’s children.

And David had a happy family life that he shared with his brother Matthew who is a Chaplain in the Navy and his wife Lucaya who worked hard also to take care of their three (3) children and to support her husband in any way she could.  Below is a picture of Matthew, Lucaya, and David in happier times:

Now, after Prosecutor Brent Nelson’s underhanded tactics in the David Riley case not only did Brent Nelson victimize David Riley, he also victimized David Riley’s family. He took a father away from his children, and the “bread winner” of the household away from his family. Now Lucaya and her three (3) children live in a one bedroom apartment in Austin, Texas. Lucaya and her three (3) children don’t even have reliable transportation in case of an emergency, and they are just barely getting by. Due to the unreliable transportation that they do have Lucaya can’t even bring her children up to Missouri to visit with their father. So far, there has been no justice for David Riley and his family.

But sometimes we get what we need in ways that we could have never conceived. Perhaps we can all help David Riley and his family get a little justice, and show Prosecutor Brent Nelson that if we would have been sitting on a Jury had David Riley’s case went to trial, and we saw the evidence that we have seen thus far; the verdict would have been much different than what Prosecutor Brent Nelson believes it would have been.

If you want to help David Riley’s family out and send this message to Prosecutor Brent Nelson, then please make a donation to help David Riley’s family to get by while David Riley is in the Missouri Department of Corrections. It is as simple as clicking the PayPal Donate button below and following the instructions.

Thank you for your time and attention.
