Angels, demons, and a secret organization in Florida
by Timothy Charles Holmseth
When Casey Anthony was acquitted of first degree murder charges, the verdict shocked the conscience of many.
How could a jury find a monster like Casey Anthony, not guilty? After all, the facts and circumstances surrounding her toddler daughter Caylee’s disappearance, and death, all pointed straight to Casey, right?
Actually, murder charges in this case were premature to say the least.
The jury’s ultimate decision showed that when all the cards were ‘supposedly’ on the table, the jurors, apparently, didn’t believe ‘all’ the cards were on the table.
Using information I gathered from at least a hundred hours of my own journalistic interviews, conducted between 2009 and 2012, I will show you why the Casey Anthony verdict was actually a responsible and appropriate response to the evidence.
But I will do more than that.
I will provide evidence that Caylee Anthony may not have been the victim of cold blooded murder – at least not the cold blooded murder the State of Florida tried to sell to the jury.
If you are one that followed the trial closely, the sheer sight of Casey Anthony, the sound of her voice, and thought of her partying for a month while her daughter was missing probably gets your blood absolutely boiling – to say the least.
I get it – and that’s why as I assimilated information over the years, I began to realize something.
Casey Anthony’s behavior and general attitude after her daughter vanished was so outrageous, that it actually overshadowed, if not entirely erased, any desire a normal person may have to ask tough questions or scrutinize the official version of what occurred.
Casey’s cavalier attitude was so offensive it made one literally resent her, and it was her despicable disposition that clouded the reality that she had no real ‘motive’ to murder her daughter.
Could it all have happened the way the State presented it?
Sure – so this is my disclaimer – I am presenting information that I believe contradicts the overly simplistic conclusions the State of Florida pushed in place of enough hidden truths to pave the road to hell.
Now – because Casey is so despicable – it’s going to be hard for old dogs in this case to analyze new facts.
Once a person believes a mother duct taped her two year-old’s mouth shut and left her dying in a hot car trunk, the anger and bias is so extreme it seems insurmountable.
I am going to be providing you new information, and if you really want to absorb it, you will need to clean your mental slate.
I am now going to pose a rhetorical question, not as a conclusion, but rather a thought-starter to generate fresh inner dialogue.
Ask yourself this question…
Did little Caylee Anthony die accidentally, somewhere in the process of a botched rescue mission [fake kidnapping], which had been planned and executed to permanently remove the child from a sexually abusive home?
Remember to work with your clean slate.
Remember – there is a period of time that is hazy at best – nobody is exactly sure where Casey was, what she was doing, or who she was with – and nobody can do anything more than speculate on the matter.
The murder scenario set forth by the State, on the surface, seemed to make sense. After all, they ultimately found the body, and the mother appeared to be a pathological liar and cold-blooded sociopath.
Now think about it – that was the State’s case – that was it.
Think about it again – when looked at objectively, there was never really a motive for Casey to murder her little daughter. The only real motive the State set forth to support such a theory was the suggestion Caylee was interfering with Casey’s party lifestyle.
Murder is rather an extreme measure for a desire to stay out late. Everybody that has children experiences a sharp curve in their ability to party and go clubbing. People don’t murder their children because they feel held down.
There’s no doubt Casey Anthony appeared self-absolved and obsessed with the pleasures of night life, clubs, booze, and sex – but horrific murder is a drastic measure to take to escape parental duties, when other options are available – options that won’t lead to the penitentiary.
So ask yourself…
Did Casey Anthony execute Caylee, or, was Casey involved in something that led to the child’s un-planned death?
I’ll say it plainly.
Is it possible Casey wanted to get her and her daughter out of that house forever? Did she want to move on with her life, without leaving her daughter behind to be the next generation sex abuse victim?
If she was planning an escape, it was not going to be as simple as packing her bags, putting her daughter in a car seat, and leaving.
Tales of Cindy Anthony’s controlling nature are chilling, disturbing, and many. One need only watch the infamous video of Cindy being deposed, and you will see a ferocious bug-eyed monster suddenly explode when Cindy’s is challenged by an attorney asking her tough questions.
To escape a situation as controlling and sick as the Anthony home was known to be, it would require a plan and help from third parties.
Now stop and think very closely about that – third parties.
While murder is a final act that almost never ends well for the perpetrator, abuse victims escaping their abuser is something that happens relatively often. It is known to be difficult and dangerous – but escapes and rescue missions do happen.
The public was quick to conclude that Casey was able to commit a horrific murder, but gave little thought to the idea she may have just wanted to get Caylee out of that environment.
To truly know what actually happened to Caylee during the summer of 2008, the jury needed to be provided more information than they were ever given, and judging by their verdict, they sensed that something was missing.
But the information existed.
Facts and circumstances never openly discussed or made public by Attorney Jeff Ashton or Jose Baez revealed a much different picture about was actually going on in the disturbing world of the Anthony family.
Interestingly enough – Cindy Anthony, commented on what I am going to show you.
But…as you will see…there was just no way the State was going to ‘go there’.
If the Prosecution had delved into the realities I am now going show you, the case would have dwarfed the Simpson trial, marginalized the Manson Family, and made Casey Anthony appear sympathetic.
They wanted Casey to look like a monster – not a victim.
It begins with the cold hard realities that surround homes filled with incest and sexual abuse.
Assertions and allegations that incest was occurring in the Anthony home were commonplace. George Anthony was alleged to have had sex with his daughter, Casey.
Likewise, Casey reportedly told others that her brother, Lee Anthony, had molested her throughout the years.
That was the world Casey Anthony grew up in – tortured and tormented – hollowed out and empty – broken – and she knew her daughter was next.
Did Casey decide to do something about it? Did she find someone to help her? Did someone offer to help her?
Did she have a plan?
Perhaps – because in the summer of 2008 – everything changed forever.
The bizarre story that unfolded when the police became involved is an old one that everybody already knows.
Confronted by the police about the whereabouts of her daughter, Casey created a fictional babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez. She told the police the babysitter took her daughter and she never saw her again.
Casey said it was a kidnapping, and she stuck to that ‘kidnapping’ story come hell or high water.
The minute details of what really happened, we don’t have. However, we do know Caylee would never be seen alive again, and her body was found not too far from the Anthony home.
Whoever had control of Caylee’s body, either while she was alive, or after she was dead, placed duct tape over her mouth.
I believe the whole Anthony family knew Caylee was dead, were involved in hiding her body, and were simply trying to run out the clock as time destroyed Caylee’s corpse, making useful evidence difficult to obtain by forensic investigators.
The State of Florida chose to develop a case against Casey Anthony based Casey’s movements in the summer of 2008.
As emotionally compelling as the State’s case was – it simply wasn’t enough to explain what really happened to Caylee. It simply showed she was a living person that disappeared, and when she was found, was obviously the victim of foul play because she had duct tape on her mouth.
The evidence you have shows you the child died and it was not on the up and up – but that’s all it shows.
I am now going to encourage you to ask your self a second question. If Caylee died accidentally in the course of a rescue mission that utilized a plan that included a phantom kidnapper – who was helping Casey?
Who were the third parties?
There are no above-board businesses that assist in kidnappings and staged child abductions. Making a child vanish without a trace would require connections in the human trafficking underground.
What the world witnessed as the disappearance of Caylee Anthony played out on a national scale was very disturbing. But was the long search, freak-show style news coverage, and ultimate recovery of Caylee’s body, the original plan – or is that just what happened?
Perhaps this was the plan – Caylee Anthony was supposed to disappear (into the underground) as the result of a kidnapping – never to be seen again.
But something went wrong, the Nancy Disgrace freak show took over and the rest is history.
Was there any evidence that members of the trafficking underground were involved in the Anthony case?
Yes, and the State had to know it folks – Jeff Ashton knew the whole time – but he didn’t want to go there.
February 10, 2009 – “HaLeigh and Caylee”
On February 10, 2009 a nationally televised memorial was held for Caylee Anthony in Orlando, Florida. The highly publicized event was being monitored by a security team that was enforcing a no-entry list, which had been created by George and Cindy Anthony.
On that list was a man named Rev. Richard Grund. Also on the list was a child sex abuse advocate/author from Arizona named Wayanne Kruger.
Rev. Grund was on the potential witness list for the prosecution, but was never ultimately called to testify. He is the father of Jesse Grund, former fiancé of Casey Anthony.
On February 10, 2009, having been black-listed from the large family memorial, Rev. Grund arranged for a smaller memorial to be held at J. Blanchard Park, which was attended by a small crowd that prayed and grieved for the soul of little Caylee.
Rev. Grund personally knew George and Cindy Anthony, and had been to their home. It is interesting the Anthony’s held such an animus for Rev. Grund. Typically families don’t hire a private security firm for memorial services and create a blacklist to keep specific people out.
Later I will tell you what Rev. Grund told me happened one time when he was at the Anthony house. The events create an entirely different reality, and will likely change the way you look at this case, forever.
But to get to my interview with Rev. Grund, we first need to look at the date of February 10, 2009.
On February 10, 2009 a five year-old from Satsuma, Florida named HaLeigh Cummings mysteriously disappeared. Satsuma is only 75 miles north of Orlando and the news spread quickly.
‘HaLeigh and Caylee’
In April of 2009, I was doing freelance writing projects for various magazines and publishing companies. I am a former newspaper reporter and was enjoying the editorial freedom of choosing my own projects and writing under my own publication.
I received an email via You Tube from a private investigator from Weston, Florida named William Staubs – a.k.a. ‘Cobra the Bounty Hunter’. He was complimenting me on a song I wrote called “The Murderer”. He asked me to call him (although I didn’t).
A few days later I was contacted by Rev. Grund. It was interesting because Grund was writing me, to encourage me, to communicate with Staubs.
The news reporter inside me recognized this could be a big story, and within the next couple of weeks my proverbial rolodex continued to grow. I interviewed scores of witnesses, including many members of HaLeigh’s family, staff members working for the team assembled by Crystal Sheffield, and others.
I interviewed both Staubs and Rev. Grund.
Investigator Staubs told me that he was in Northern Florida searching for the missing little Cummings girl, when the cops ‘run him out of town’.
He told me he ‘damn near got arrested’.
Staubs said that after he was run out of town by the cops, he was on his way back to Southern Florida, when he heard on the “radio” about a memorial being held in Orlando for little Caylee Anthony, so he decided to swing through there – and it was then and there he claimed to meet Rev. Grund for the first time ever.
Staubs was already searching for HaLeigh Cummings on the very day she was reported missing?
That’s what he said – but of course there is a big difference between ‘searching’ for a child, and being in the area because you were involved in the child’s disappearance.
I never did find out why the cops damn near arrested him the day HaLeigh was reported missing, but the FBI might want to look into that.
His story becomes even more fantastic.
Staubs said after meeting Rev. Grund on February 10, Grund asked him to lead up his “security team”. Staubs said George and Cindy Anthony were harassing Grund and attempting to hack into his computer. Staubs said he agreed to help Grund and took the case pro bono.
Rev. Grund kept the pro bono PI busy.
In March of 2009, Staubs told news reporters, including Jessica Clark at First Coast News that he had been sent to Satsuma by Rev. Grund. He said Grund was a pastor and wanted him to help HaLeigh’s mother, Crystal Sheffield. Staubs also told Clark he was being financed by a reformed drug dealer from Miami.
When I interviewed Rev. Grund I asked him about his relationship with Staubs. He confirmed that he that he asked Staubs to travel to Satsuma to aid and assist Crystal Sheffield.
I asked Rev. Grund how and why he became involved in the HaLeigh Cummings case. He said he had been contacted by a woman named Wayanne Kruger.
Kruger is an author and child sex abuse advocate. She has been featured on the ABC news magazine 20/20, People magazine, etc. She is the author of a book entitled “Life in Prison for Child Sex Predators”.
In Kruger’s book she talks about assisting a mother that needed to hide her child from her sexually abusive father. For instance, Kruger once helped hide a child on an Indian reservation.
Is this starting to make sense, folks?
Remember – we are watching for evidence that someone may have been helping Casey Anthony at the time her daughter vanished.
Wayanne Kruger was on the no-entry list prepared by George and Cindy Anthony. The notes behind her name said she may try to sneak a tape recorder into the memorial inside a baby carriage.
Who was Wayanne Kruger to the Anthony’s?
George and Cindy Anthony had enough forethought to place the name Wayanne Kruger on a no-entry list for an event in Orlando, Florida, despite Kruger being a resident of Avondale, Arizona?
Apparently the PI firm that did the security checks had some reason to look into Kruger.
Kruger’s relationship with Rev. Grund and Staubs, on the other hand, is not confusing at all. Kruger provided me email that proves she was actively communicating and coordinating with both of them.
They were a team.
In one email from Rev. Grund to Kruger, he tells Kruger that “Cobra” is on his way, and asks her where she is going to “hide” them.
Kruger told me during an interview that she spoke with Crystal Sheffield and her mother, Marie Griffis, on the telephone, the night HaLeigh was reported missing. She also told me she attended Rev. Grund’s memorial for Caylee in Orlando on February,10.
She had a busy day.
Think about it folks.
If Kruger is involved with Rev. Grund and Staubs in the missing child case of HaLeigh Cummings, why wouldn’t we look at their collective involvement with the Anthony Family and the mysterious disappearance of Caylee?
Why was Richard Grund involving himself in these missing child cases?
Rev. Grund and Kruger are involved in the Casey Anthony affair to the degree the Anthony family perceives them as some kind of a threat, and blacklists them from a memorial.
Is it possible that the disappearance of HaLeigh Cummings was intended to obfuscate the truth about what had occurred in Caylee Anthony’s disappearance? If a guy didn’t know better, he might think there was someone running around Florida kidnapping and killing little girls, eh?
After all – Caylee Anthony was kidnapped, according to Casey – right?
HaLeigh’s disappearance on the exact same day as Caylee’s memorial worked great to drive news coverage, and create the appearance there may be a serial child molester and killer on the loose?
But who would benefit from that contrived scenario?
Working within the small group of individuals we are discussing – was there anyone that would like to see the world’s attention be re-directed toward some phantom kidnapper?
Is there anyone in our discussion that is keeping himself very involved in missing children cases?
Let’s keep discussing Rev. Grund.
I spoke at length with Rev. Grund in May of 2009.
Let’s take a look at the man that was banned from the Anthony family memorial, organized his own memorial, and by his own admission sent ‘operatives’ into a situation that involved the disappearance of yet another child.
Rev. Grund is an online minister that operates a paranormal service that confronts actual demons and fallen angels. Grund openly admitted to me he was once involved in the worship of Satan. He purports to now be a Christian.
Rev. Grund told me there was a plot underway to frame his son for the murder of Caylee Anthony.
The first thing that struck me about Rev. Grund’s talk of a plot against him and his family, was that I had never heard about any such plot against him from anyone else – there was nothing of the like in the news.
According to the news, it appeared the prosecution had a theory that focused directly on Casey. Caylee’s body had been found, and Casey was incarcerated. If the police had found any forensic evidence on the body, of course, they would be the only ones to know what they did and didn’t have.
But Grund wouldn’t.
Rev. Grund was obsessed with this so-called plot. He told me Casey Anthony visited his son’s apartment after Caylee disappeared, and asked to use his shower. Grund said he believed Casey was attempting to obtain body hair from the shower, which, he suspected, she planned to place on the child’s dead body.
Both Grund and Staubs focused on the ‘planting’ of ‘evidence’ and insisted there was a cynical plot to implicate Jesse Grund and his family.
Staubs told me Casey Anthony telephoned Jesse Grund and asked him to go to her car and open the trunk, and take out the gas can. Jesse allegedly told her “no” – to do it herself. Staubs said this was an attempt by Casey to have Jesse Grund’s finger prints placed on the trunk of her car.
It is important to remember that Staubs and Grund were telling me things they wanted published.
Staubs also said that James Hoover, private detective, told him George and Cindy Anthony sent someone to Atlanta, Georgia to follow Jesse Grund and covertly obtain some of his DNA. Staubs telephoned Hoover and had me listen to the telephone call on a third line.
The Anthony’s had hired a PI named Dominick Casey. Staubs said Dominick Casey was following him around while he was ‘searching’ for HaLeigh.
Staubs and Grund both said George and Cindy Anthony were spearheading a plot to hack into Rev. Grund’s computer.
Staubs and Grund called the Anthony’s gang the “A-Team”.
I believe the average person will readily see that something about all this just doesn’t seem right.
Staubs and Grund constantly suggest that nefarious third parties are attempting to do cynical things like covertly obtain DNA; secretly obtain body hair, place fingerprints on a piece of evidence through trickery; and steal computer images from a hard drive.
All this was being done to ‘frame’ a ‘Grund’ for killing Caylee Anthony.
Do they ‘protesteteth’ too much?
Why did George and Cindy Anthony hire a private investigator (Dominick Casey), to go out and follow around another private investigator (William Staubs), who himself was working pro bono for a Reverend (Richard Grund) that was coordinating the activities of a child sex abuse advocate from Arizona (Wayanne Kruger) who specialized in rescue mission kidnappings of abuse victims?
Rev. Grund told me that while he and his wife were once visiting the home of George and Cindy Anthony, he found it to be a place of pure “evil”. Grund said there was a demonic spirit in the Anthony home, and the spirit, Grund said, knew “he” was there.
Grund told me he whispered to wife to hold on; that he wanted to see if the demon knew he was there. Grund clearly believes he fluidly communicates with these demons on a personal level. Grund told me that the demon knew he was there, became wild, and things flew off the shelf.
I couldn’t help but wonder what the nature of the visit was – and when it occurred.
But here is why this is particularly troubling.
In 2009 the National Enquirer published an article that Rev. Grund may have killed Caylee Anthony in a ritual. Rev. Grund filed a lawsuit against the Enquirer but a Florida judge later dismissed it.
I briefly pondered the time that Casey and Caylee could not really be accounted for, after Caylee was seen alive for the last time. The Enquirer story sat quietly in the back of my mind, but I gave it little weight. If the State had any suspicions about Grund, I figured they would have come out with it.
I don’t believe that anymore.
Rev. Grund told me he advised the Prosecutor that if he was called to the stand, he was not holding back whatsoever regarding his paranormal work with evil spirits and religion.
The State never called Rev. Grund (and neither did the Defense).
Rev. Grund’s work with paranormal activity, evil spirits, and his admitted background with devil worship troubled me to some degree, and it just kind of sat simmering on a back burner in my mind.
But one day everything changed.
During an interview with Kruger, she said something that made my blood run cold. She was crying when she called (which she had never done before while talking to me) and said she was afraid she might have gotten involved with some really bad people.
Kruger then told me she hoped Rev. Grund didn’t kill HaLeigh Cummings in an exorcism.
Did she just say that?
Now be clear – she was referring to HaLeigh Cummings – not Caylee Anthony.
She said Rev. Grund did not believe HaLeigh Cummings was one-hundred percent human because she had no reproductive abilities due to her Turner’s syndrome.
Apparently Rev. Grund believed HaLeigh had a demon in her.
I was stunned.
What kind of conversations were these people sitting around having, and why in the world would anybody ever say a little girl was not a complete person, just because her reproductive capabilities have been affected by a syndrome?
What kind of thoughts go through Rev. Grund’s mind?
Was Rev. Grund doing exorcisms on these missing children?
His talk of a ‘plot’ to ‘frame’ his family becomes hard to ignore.
Is there a reason he keeps distancing himself from ‘hair’ and ‘finger prints’ and content ‘stolen’ from his computer by the A-Team?
I was troubled by the fact he told me there was a demon in the Anthony home. But he told me something else that began to take on a whole new meaning as I considered the Enquirer story and what Kruger told me.
Rev. Grund told me Casey Anthony was no longer the real ‘Casey’ – he said she was gone and her body was possessed by a demon that used to be worshipped on earth as a god. He said the god (Moloch) demanded children be sacrificed to it.
And now we need to look at Rev. Grund’s colleagues.
Staubs, Kruger, and Rev. Grund, were all communicating and coordinating their efforts in the HaLeigh Cummings case with a father-son team – John and Jeremiah Regan.
No less than five case witnesses told me John Regan was dressing as a pastor and telling people he worked for the FBI and CIA. He professed to be an undercover pervert that went undercover as a pedophile to catch pedophiles.
Staubs and Grund both recounted a conference call they had with John Regan in 2009. The call involved a dispute that had broken out and divided their team. They were arguing bible verses back and forth.
Staubs told me he had a close working relationship with “Pastor Regan” and “Reverend Grund” and had to “apologize” to both of them one day, after someone he brought into the case went “buck-ass” wild and began acting terribly.
It is very important to think about what Kruger has to say about John and Jeremiah Regan.
Kruger said John and Jeremiah Regan prevented her from going to the police in Palatka, Florida and telling them what happened to HaLeigh Cummings. She said John Regan told her members of the police department, sheriff’s office, and community leaders in Putnam County, Florida all operate a child trafficking ring.
Rev. Grund told me John Regan told him the same thing. He said John Regan said the entire county is completely corrupt – a clearinghouse – a trafficking hub.
Kruger said John Regan offered to drive her out to see the “intake house”.
Naturally, the story about all the local officials and community leaders operating a human child trafficking ring sounded a little bit hard to believe.
But only until…
Staubs told me that HaLeigh’s grandfather, Johnny Sheffield, advised him that he believed the brother of a Putnam County State’s Attorney investigator was actually HaLeigh’s biological father.
Staubs was suggesting somebody in the State’s Attorney’s Office might have been involved in HaLeigh’s disappearance.
I probably would have filed this under bologna too.
Staubs actually telephoned the investigator at the State’s Attorney’s Office, Chris Middleton, and confronted him. He said Middleton went “absolutely ballistic’ on the telephone and started cussing a blue streak.
Staubs said Middleton was irate because he had already been confronted about this very topic by his superior.
Now let’s take a look at something else Kruger said about Rev. Grund’s colleague, John Regan. She told me she interviewed several women from the New York area that identified John Regan as the pastor that raped their little boys during an after school type church program.
And then she told me this.
Kruger told me John Regan was involved in a baby-selling operation in South Florida. She said the trafficking apparatus had been in operation since the 1990’s. She said the operation was well organized, utilized fake paperwork, coercion, corrupt attorneys, and was operated under the guise the adoptions were being run through the “church”.
Everything you just read is true.
So here it is…
On June 15, 2008 Caylee Anthony was videotaped at a senior citizen center – alive and well. On December 11, 2008 Caylee’s remains were found.
Did Caylee die from an over exposure to chloroform?
Or did she die in a satanic ritual?
Did Caylee die from suffocation in a hot car trunk?
Or did she die in the middle of an exorcism?
The State of Florida didn’t want to go there.
