Something HUGE has happened in Polk County, Minnesota.

Court records and documents from a pending criminal prosecution against a Minnesota journalist who is accused of violating a Florida restraining order for publishing court records, reveals an attorney from Polk County believes he has significant knowledge regarding the veracity of specific evidence pertaining to an (alleged) international child sex trafficking operation.

The revelation has international implications.

Attorney Ronald Galstad, a private lawyer that contracts to prosecute for the City of EGF, is prosecuting investigative journalist and author Timothy Charles Holmseth for allegedly publishing court files and audio evidence recently accepted into evidence in the Polk County Court by Honorable Tamara Yon.

Galstad charges that on February 18, 2018 Holmseth violated a Minnesota restraining order statute, based upon an existing ‘Injunction For Protection Against Repeat Violence’ (Florida dating law) that was issued against Holmseth in Broward County, Florida in 2011 by the domestic violence division – in protection of a person Holmseth never met – nor he (Holmseth) having been to Florida.

Records from the Discovery files reveal Galstad has a written opinion regarding Holmseth – which he gave to nearly every leading official in Polk County, Minnesota.

Contained in the Discovery packet of State of Minnesota vs. Timothy Charles Holmseth, is an email sent by Galstad to former CIA intelligence officer Robert David Steele.

Robert David Steele – CIA Retired

Steele, a former spy and military intelligence officer once nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, is the general counsel facilitating the International Tribunal for Natural Justice which is conducting a massive investigation into pedophilia with the assistance of former NSA intelligence leader William Binney, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, and others.

Holmseth is scheduled to testify in front of the Commission.

Records show on March 8, 2018 Steele composed a letter which was sent to Galstad via certified mail. Steele advised Galstad that Holmseth was a registered witness for the Commission and there was significant concern regarding Holmseth’s safety.

Galstad replied to Steele on March 12 by email and copied the following officials:

  • David Murphy, East Grand Forks City Administrator
  • Steve Gander, Mayor of East Grand Forks
  • Michael Hedlund, Chief of Police, East Grand Forks
  • Greg Widseth, Polk County Attorney
  • Barb Erdman, Polk County Sheriff
  • Tamara Yon, Assistant District Chief Judge
  • Scott Buhler, Assistant Polk County attorney

Galstad said in his email:

“On another note you indicate Mr. Holmseth is scheduled to testify in London. I would only check the veracity of his claims. I cannot speak to the claims made against the authorities in Florida, but will let you know the claims against me have absolutely no basis in fact. Mr. Holmseth has a tendency to exaggerate and jump to baseless conclusions. I only say this out of respect for your cause directed at human trafficking and child abuse. I implore that you proceed with caution because Mr. Holmseth’s testimony could do more harm than good,” Galstad said.

In July of 2017 Holmseth submitted evidence to the 9th Judicial District Court in support of a MOTION TO VACATE prior orders, which was GRANTED by Honorable Yon on December 13, 2017.

Holmseth submitted the evidence because the East Grand Forks Police Department and the Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force, with the assistance of Galstad, seized his computer in 2012 and destroyed the hard drive to get rid of the evidence, which Holmseth was finally able to resurrect in 2017.

The introduction to Holmseth’s MOTION said:

PETITIONER brings this MOTION TO VACATE because NEW EVIDENCE that was not available at the time of trial shows adverse parties within Minnesota law enforcement and the larger interstate judicial community, criminally and civilly conspired with agents of a private corporation that received support from the U.S. Military to strategically create life-threatening conflict in the life of Parties’ minor child * * * * *  U. Holmseth; conflict that would be used to justify court actions against Plaintiff’s constitutional rights for the illegal purpose of protecting a criminal enterprise of child sex trafficking and child pornography.

Honorable Yon’s Order said:

“Mr. Holmseth has presented a significant amount of evidence regarding his investigations. Both parties and this Court acknowledge and agree that any order in this case which may prohibit or restrict Mr. Holmseth from conducting said investigations are VACATED.”

Galstad is presently prosecuting Holmseth for allegedly publishing the following audio evidence which is described in the court records as follows (without redactions).

Child kidnapped in 2009 may be alive and chained up

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on November 19, 2016, 9:49 A.M. CST

Write Into Action has exclusively obtained new information regarding the missing child HaLeigh Cummings and slain toddler, Caylee Anthony.

The information was received yesterday from Wayanne Kruger, the author and child advocate that traveled to Florida in 2009 to assist HaLeigh’s mother, Crystal Sheffield.

Write Into Action is reporting:

  1. Ronald Cummings, the father of missing child HaLeigh Cummings, took his daughter HaLeigh to a sex club where the doors were closed and nobody was allowed in our out until late morning.
  1. Crystal Sheffield, HaLeigh’s mother, possessed photos of the little girl being held down (by someone’s hands), undressed, and screaming.
  1. Nearly every member of the legal team working for HaLeigh’s mother, Crystal Sheffield, was involved and snorting cocaine.
  1. John Regan, the fake pastor that identified himself as FBI and CIA to multiple witnesses took Wayanne Kruger to a sex only club where there were children and drugs.
  1. Rev. Richard Grund, the admitted Satanist that was interviewed by Orange County Sheriff’s Office regarding the murder of Caylee Anthony was involved. 

Amber Alert

“Both Cobra and the team had been snorting coke with someone who took them to the “rage.” John Regan took me to a sex only club and drugs. They locked the doors by 9 pm with children. Crystal was previously seen at these parties. They could not leave until late morning. Sober. I did not know my way there and back because John (Regan) had driven me in circles.  Misty (Croslin) was there once with Ronald and HaLeigh but demanded to leave after she saw the young kids,” Kruger said.

The entire statement (not shown here) is being turned over to law enforcement by Timothy Charles Holmseth (Write Into Action).

Kruger said she wants answers.

“[HaLeigh may be] used as a “cast away slave”. Like POWS. Chained up. Given low doses of drugs to be dependent and by now telling the new kids not to make waves or they will never see their family again. I still think she is alive. They probably won’t kill her until she is no longer valuable,” Kruger said.

Timothy Charles Holmseth (Write Into Action) previously reported information he learned about photos of the missing child to the Minneapolis and Jacksonville FBI, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (Florida), Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Department of Children and Families, Polk County Sheriff’s Office (Minnesota), East Grand Forks Police (Minnesota) Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Florida Governor Rick Scott, Florida Courts, and the United States District Court.


On November 13, 2016, Write Into Action published FBI kidnapper and child pornographer identified – CNN, police, and journalists involved in child sex trafficking connected to Washington D.C.

The breakthrough revelations come as Wikileaks reveal Hillary Clinton’s connection to an international child pedophile trafficking operation. Photos show Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta and his brother, Tony Podesta, are dead ringers for police sketches of the men connected to the kidnapping of Madeline McCann.


Timothy Holmseth also obtained a copy of a written confession from the killer of JonBenet Ramsey that was briefly published on Barnes Noble. Holmseth turned the confession entitled “Two is Too Young To Die” over to the Denver FBI, Boulder Police Department, and Donald J. Trump.

Almost Avery

Why Steven Avery deserves a new trial

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on January 10, 2016 at 12:14 A.M.

Sheriff Barb Erdman and Police Chief Michael Hedlund possess evidence of child pornography in missing child case

Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman

Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman

Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman and East Grand Forks Police Chief Michael Hedlund have received extensive and detailed information about child pornography, as well as the alleged sexual assault of the missing child HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

HaLeigh Cummings was five years-old when she reported missing from her Satsuma, Florida home on February 10, 2009.

The report was made to Erdman and Hedlund today by Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative journalist, after the Missing and Endangered Persons division of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement contacted him and advised him to make the report. The FDLE sexual predator unit contacted Holmseth after he provided evidence from the Florida Bar Association that supported existing evidence regarding the pornography.

Today was the first time Holmseth officially reported the pornography crime directly to Erdman and Hedlund, because both are defendants in a Deprivation of Rights lawsuit filed by Holmseth against the City of East Grand Forks and several others. The lawsuit alleges Erdman and Hedlund violated Holmseth’s constitutional rights amidst their involvement in a scheme to cover-up crimes Holmseth uncovered as an investigative journalist.

Holmseth reported to Erdman and Hedlund, irrefutable evidence that HaLeigh Cummings was sexually assaulted and photographs were taken of her private parts. Holmseth further reported he was told that HaLeigh had been raped and might have died because she was “hemorrhaging” from the sexual assault.

The evidence of the federal child pornography crimes was acquired while Holmseth was performing journalistic interviews in Polk County, Minnesota. There also exists evidence of a subsequent conspiracy by select police officers and public officials to destroy the evidence on Holmseth’s hard-drive.

The naked photographs of the five year-old child appeared out of nowhere at least one month after HaLeigh Cummings was reported missing. However, the photographs, which were in the possession of licensed legal professionals in Florida, were never given to law enforcement. The naked photographs were copied and distributed through an underground network.

The person(s) that are alleged to have commissioned, handled, distributed, and presently possess the pornographic images, are on file as being in regular contact with officers of the East Grand Forks Police Department and others in Minnesota.

Holmseth obtained the critical information while conducting interviews with key figures in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping, and Caylee Anthony murder cases.

Records with the EGFPD show Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek telephoned Holmseth in June of 2009 and told him he was receiving complaints from several individuals in Florida about Holmseth. The caller(s) wanted Hajicek to contact Holmseth and use his police powers to lean on him so he would stop publishing content about the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping and photographs.

Holmseth is now directing Erdman, Hedlund, and federal investigators to the police reports filed by Hajicek in 2009, and suggesting they compare the names of the individual(s) that were calling the police on Holmseth, to the names of the individuals involved in commissioning, handling, distributing, and possessing the child pornography.

Holmseth was not able to present the evidence until very recently, because the EGFPD, and Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force, obtained a search and seizure warrant for his computer and hard-drive in December of 2012. When the hard-drive was returned by EGFPD officer Aeisso Schrage in April of 2013, the hard-drive had been disabled; wires had been pulled out; and plastic clips snapped.

“The person(s) that damaged my hard-drive may have been Aeisso Schrage, and/or Rodney Hajicek, and/or Ronald Galstad, and /or PCSO Sgt. Michael Norland, and/or somebody else. Whoever damaged the hard-drive appears to have been attempting to conceal evidence that involved child pornography and child rape,” Holmseth reported today.

In the fall of 2014 Holmseth located back-up files he possessed and began the process of finding evidence he possessed regarding the child rape pornography.

The evidence has also been given to Richard T. Thornton, special agent in charge, Minneapolis FBI, as well as Donovan W. Frank, the judge hearing HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL.

Holmseth has requested the Court allow him to amend his original Complaint to add the child pornography evidence.

Holmseth alleges that select police officers and public officials in Minnesota, conspired with the very individuals in Florida that commissioned, handled, and distributed the child rape pornography, to violate his constitutional rights, while simultaneously attempting to destroy the evidence he possessed.

In February of 2015 Holmseth received telephone calls from a Florida telephone number by a man that told him he was going to kill him and his house was being watched. The telephone calls were reported as they happened to the EGFPD in Minnesota and GFPD in North Dakota.

Judge Frank has referred Holmseth to the federal Pro Se project for an attorney.


Rape porn is of missing child HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings

Amber Alert

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on June 19, 2015 at 2:06 P.M.

Judge Donovan Frank has been provided evidence that child pornography of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings exists and is still in distribution.

The evidence, submitted to Judge Frank by Timothy Charles Holmseth, includes recent correspondences with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Richard T. Thornton, Minneapolis FBI.

The evidence shows that in 2009, members of the Florida legal community were secretly circulating child pornography of HaLeigh Cummings, through a network that included a Florida DCF social worker named Bonnie Warner.

The evidence exposes an elaborate network of law enforcement officials that use their positions to abduct children in Florida.

The evidence indicates HaLeigh Cummings was sexually assaulted on a date after she was reported missing, and pictures were then taken of the child’s assaulted private parts to support a change of custody case against her father, Ronald Cummings.

The evidence shows members of the East Grand Forks Police Department and Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Force were in contact with several players from Florida, and conspired against Holmseth, because Holmseth, a journalist, had captured all the players on tape discussing the operation and pornography.

The operation involved a man named John Regan that dressed up like a pastor and told people he was undercover with the FBI and CIA. He told several witnesses he was an “undercover pervert” and “undercover pedophile” that goes undercover as a pedophile to catch other pedophiles.

Holmseth’s original Complaint details how Minnesota law enforcement and select attorneys conspired to seize and destroy his computer hard-drive, and according to Attorney Michael LaCoursiere, had a plan to put Holmseth in prison so he could not tell what happened to HaLeigh.

“Defendants Schrage, Hajicek, Galstad, and possibly others, have all been in communications with members of a child sex trafficking underground,” Holmseth stated in his filing to the federal court today.

Holmseth, plaintiff, HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL submitted the evidence as part of a request that Judge Frank allow him to amend his original complaint to include the pornography evidence.

Alethea M. Huyser, Minnesota Attorney General’s office, the attorney for Attorney Michael LaCoursiere, has filed an opposition to Holmseth’s request to add the child rape pornography evidence to the lawsuit.

“Plaintiff has never identified any additional facts or allegations involving State Defendant,” Huyser argued.

Holmseth’s submission to the Court today addresses Huyser’s objection, and provides irrefutable evidence that naked photographs of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings were taken, and surfaced over a month after she was reported missing.

The evidence proves who commissioned and handled the photographs; and that evidence links those persons to the EGFPD, Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force, and EGF City Attorney.

Wayanne Kruger, the author and advocate that represented Crystal Sheffield in 2009, told Holmseth she feared HaLeigh Cummings may have bled to death because she had been raped and was “hemorrhaging”.

Holmseth attempted to report the truth about the missing child to the EGFPD, Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman, and Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth, but was repeatedly ignored and subsequently arrested.

In July of 2014 Holmseth filed a Deprivation of Rights lawsuit in United States District Court to expose the organized criminal operation, which included a non-stop assault on his constitutional rights.

The East Grand Forks City Council has continued to use taxpayer money to fund the defense of the police officers and officials involved in the pedophilia operation.


Minnesota Sheriff and Chief of Police named as Defendants in federal lawsuit revealing police covered-up actionable Amber Alert lead to protect local criminal enterprise

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Timothy Charles Holmseth, author/journalist, has filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court, Fergus Falls, Minnesota. The 109 page filing (including exhibits) details five years of violations by Minnesota government officials under 42 U.S.C. 1983.

Defendants named in the lawsuit include the sheriff of Polk County, Minnesota, Barb Erdman, East Grand Forks Police Department (EGFPD) Police Chief Michael Hedlund, and EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad.

The lawsuit shows local authorities deliberately concealed information about a child kidnapping from the FBI. Many fear the end result is going to be a replay of the Jaycee Dugard tragedy.

Among several causes of action, the Complaint addresses email communications between Nancy Grace’s ‘HaLeigh Cummings’ case reporter, Art Harris, and the EGFPD. In 2009, Harris was appearing on the Nancy Grace Show, ‘Issues’ with Jane Valez Mitchell, and Mike Galanos, as he ‘reported’ the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping; while simultaneously, working for the missing child’s mother and calling law enforcement and news agencies in Minnesota and identifying himself as a “CNN reporter” and soliciting the arrest of a Minnesota journalist that was assisting the FBI.

Emails exchanged between Art Harris and Lt. Rodney Hajicek, EGFPD, show Harris alerted Hajicek to the fact the Jacksonville FBI was acting on leads they received from Holmseth; and based upon that; Harris was soliciting the EGFPD to arrest Holmseth. “He’s got to be stopped,” Harris said in his email.

Lt. Hajicek subsequently reached out to Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth in effort to see if some kind of charge could be brought against Holmseth (presumably, for the crime of assisting the FBI in a kidnapping investigation).

Police incident reports show Lt. Hajicek sought to assist Art Harris, while entirely neglecting to alert the FBI that Harris and several others working with Crystal Sheffield, HaLeigh’s mother, were calling the EGFPD non-stop and soliciting Holmseth’s arrest because Holmseth was helping the FBI.

The illegal efforts of the EGFPD never ceased.

In 2012, the EGFPD and their City Attorney staged a bogus ‘Gang and Drug Task Force’ raid on Holmseth’s home-office to seize custody of his computer and hard-drive. EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad told Minnesota Judge Tamara Yon during a court hearing that he (Galstad) was communicating with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) regarding a prospective ‘forensic search’ of Holmseth’s hard-drive. The assistant superintendent of the Minnesota BCA, Drew Evans, subsequently disavowed Galstad in writing – stating the agency had nothing to do with Galstad – the EGFPD – or their raid – had no agents working on the ‘gang and drug task force’ and did not authorize anyone to attaché their BCA stickers to Holmseth’s journalism equipment. The police then disabled the hard-drive before returning it.

The ‘task force’ raid was an illegal search and seizure.

The EGFPD and Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) were forced to admit in Minnesota State District Court before Judge Yon that a Polk County detective searched the hard-drive with a program that leaves no trace. They kept no ‘record of examination’ and no ‘chain of evidence’ documentation to show where Holmseth’s hard-drive was located for over four months. The search warrant used to seize the hard-drive did not authorize a search – only retention of the property.

Ironically – Sgt. Investigator Michael Norland, PCSO, testified he found no sign of illegal activity on Holmseth’s hard-drive.

Police incident reports, submitted to the U.S. District Court as exhibits in support of Holmseth’s lawsuit, show that in 2009, Art Harris called the EGFPD and told the local news reporter he was with “CNN”. Harris had so un-nerved the local reporter that she called the police and asked for a police officer. The police subsequently redacted the reporter’s name from the report because she was scared.

The police reports and activities that began in 2009, stretch out for years to follow, and reveal the EGFPD had developed a significant relationship with out-of-state individuals involved in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation.

The Minnesota connection to the HaLeigh Cummings/Caylee Anthony child cases was suppressed by Polk County authorities, until April of 2014, when an audit revealed government officials in East Grand Forks had been stealing upwards of a million dollars through various flood relief loan scams, which were being run through corrupt city officials in what is being called the ‘Boardwalk Enterprises’ scheme.

Holmseth had been told HaLeigh Cummings was alive and being passed around to keep her hidden.

Wayanne Kruger, Crystal Sheffield’s official victims advocate, told Holmseth that a fake pastor named John Regan claimed he was an undercover pedophile for the FBI. Kruger said Regan told her the “FBI” had HaLeigh Cummings but were keeping it a secret.

Kruger told Holmseth that John Regan is a serial child rapist and an operative in a child sex trafficking operation that involves every type of human trafficking; including selling infants through the United States Embassy.

The conduct of the EGFPD and Polk County Sheriff’s Office has many fearing law enforcement’s behavior may now result in the next ‘Jaycee Dugard’ tragedy.

Mental health claims against author found by expert to be completely untrue

Sanford Medical Center psychologist says she believes journalist’s claims about police corruption targeting him

After a guardian ad litem unilaterally diagnosed an  investigative journalist as ‘paranoid’ and convinced a Court the man’s young child  was in ‘sufficient danger’ under his care; recommending supervised visits; a seasoned  psychologist and renowned expert in the field of child protection reported to  the Minnesota District Court that no mental health issues are present and no safety  concerns exist.

The State sponsored lie against Author Timothy Charles  Holmseth was shot down by Dr. Madaline Barnes PhD. 

It was the third successful psychological evaluation/parental  capacity examination of Holmseth in five years. As an investigative author, Holmseth  has been continuously labeled as ‘crazy’ by a small group of individuals  involved in criminal activity, which he uncovered during a journalism project  regarding a missing child.

The most recent attack on Holmseth was a last ditch effort  by Rhonda Callahan, mother of Holmseth’s child, and Matthew Petrovich, guardian  ad litem, to drudge something up to use in the Family Court where the two have  been making false ‘best interest of the child’ claims to secure a venue against  Holmseth.

They met their Waterloo.

The facts and sheer volume of evidence in the case is now so  powerful, that the actions against Holmseth cannot be passed off as innocent  oversights or subjective differing in opinions – this was intentional and  planned and illegal.

Holmseth asserts to the Court in a Motion and Affidavit  filed yesterday, he is the victim of an organized scheme between like-minded  individuals that included Petrovich, Callahan, and East Grand Forks City  Attorney Ronald Galstad.

Because the latest psychological evaluation found no mental  health issues whatsoever Holmseth’s accusers will now be forced to deal with  facts, instead of slanderous innuendo.

Holmseth possesses a wealth of information regarding the  before-mentioned individuals and their associates, which could potentially be career-ending  – thus the attack on Holmseth’s credibility via mental bogus health claims (and  an attack on his hard-drive which Ronald Galstad and the EGFPD seized;  illegally searched; and then ruined so it wouldn’t work).

In September, 2013 Callahan filed a Motion in the Family  Court claiming Holmseth, the father of their young son, is “delusional.” She  supported her claims with exhibits that consisted of articles she printed off  Holmseth’s website. The articles featured and exposed illegal activities of  several public officials in the Ninth Minnesota Judicial District and  elsewhere.

Callahan did not point out anything specifically in the  articles Holmseth published. She did not claim any of the content was false,  per say. She simply submitted it as ‘defacto’ evidence that Holmseth is  delusional and requested he be required to see his son under supervision. The  submission of the articles as ‘evidence’ was an in-direct message to Holmseth  from the people Holmseth he was exposing – ‘we’re going to take you son if you  don’t shut up!’

The disturbing practice is called ‘institutional kidnapping’  and is a violation of federal law.

On September 30, 2013 Petrovich backed up Callahan’s claims  about Holmseth’s mental health, stating in a written report, “My great concern  is that the degree of paranoia that Mr. Holmseth views everything in his life  will have a very detrimental effect on [the child].”

Petrovich supported his (un-licensed) claim that Holmseth is  ‘paranoid’ by telling the Court that Holmseth filed a great many complaints. He  specifically lamented that Holmseth had filed a complaint against “Ronald  Galstad.”

Petrovich was so determined to convince the Judge she needed  to alter Holmseth’s parenting-time, and require he see a mental health  evaluator, that he ridiculed Holmseth in open court by saying he had filed a  complaint against everybody except “Kevin Bacon”.

Petrovich’s position to the Court was comprised of an  interesting set of themes that invariably orbited around Holmseth’s ‘computer’  ‘complaints’ ‘mental health’ and ‘website’.

Holmseth says rogue elements of the State are trying to shut  down his tell-all whistleblower site.

Holmseth has steadfastly asserted Petrovich is using his  position as Guardian Ad Litem in efforts to stop Holmseth from making document  requests from law enforcement in Polk    County, Minnesota.  Through the process, Holmseth has successfully located key information that demonstrates  local officials have violated a myriad of state and federal laws.  

The Court found that no “direct” evidence was given to  support the claims against Holmseth. However, the Court found that credible  evidence was given in the form of testimony by Callahan and Petrovich to  warrant a concern of “sufficient danger” and therefore granted the request made  for supervised visits pending an evaluation.

They both put their professional reputations; and the  professional reputations of everyone they associate with on the line to get  what they wanted.

But the sum and substance of the findings of Dr. Madaline  Barnes PhD have effectively reduced the entire bogus case they concocted  against Holmseth to little more than pure fiction.

“Mr. Holmseth was very cooperative during the interview, and  very honest and open about his interactions with his son and his activities. He  was very adamant about denying having given his son any additional information  about adult issues that are inappropriate for a [young child], insisted his  ex-wife was either distorting or fabricating her accusations,” Barnes  said. 

Barnes addressed specific topics, cited specific evidence, including  evidence connected to the HaLeigh Cummings case, and repeatedly stated Holmseth  is not “delusional” or “psychotic.”

In one instance, it appears Barnes is questioning why she  was asked to evaluate Holmseth again. “The records of his supervised visits  reflect that he continues to have the same positive relationship with his son  that I observed previously, and showed no inappropriate interactions [in the  log generated by the facilitator] during those visits,” she said.

To effectively address all of the professed claims made by  Callahan and Petrovich about Holmseth, the Judge directed [Dr. Barnes] have  access to his website, writings, and the book he authored about the missing  child HaLeigh Ann-Maries Cummings.

No condemnation of Holmseth’s writing, reporting, or  publishing was found whatsoever.

In fact…

In an interesting moment of candor during the examination,  Barnes told Holmseth she basically believed what he was saying about the  police.

Barnes recommended Holmseth resume parenting-time with his  son.

This is a developing story.

‘Chain of evidence’ records now being withheld by  East Grand Forks officials as scandal grows

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

When the East Grand Forks Police Department (EGFPD) seized a journalist’s hard-drive in December, 2012, the Bureau of Criminal of Apprehension (BCA) would not forensically search it without another Warrant.

Determined – the EGFPD partnered with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) in Crookston, Minnesota where a special investigator searched the hard-drive with a special program that leaves no trace of the activity.

They found nothing – so somebody pulled out wires and rendered the hard-drive inoperable before returning it.

The hard-drive contains ultra sensitive interviews with suspects in a federal kidnapping – audio of a ‘wired’ informant capturing members of the legal community committing felonies – even audio of the the moment the journalist, Timothy Charles Holmseth, is told to put his hands behind his back – he’s under arrest.

But the truth comes out a little at a time.    

On November 25, 2013 Sgt. Michael Norland, special  investigations, PCSO, testified in court regarding a hard-drive he searched. The  hearing was a MOTION TO COMPEL filed by Timothy Charles Holmseth (this reporter/writer  throughout) regarding the return of a computer hard-drive that police had  seized from him in December, 2012.

Holmseth’s Motion was a request for the State of Minnesota to produce any  copy of his hard-drive that may have been made while it was in police custody.

The brief testimony of Investigator Norland shed light and  insight on an insidious issue that has been obscured, largely as result of an ominous  silence by local officials regarding years of institutional harassment and  intimidation of Holmseth.

Sgt. Norland attended the hearing as a State’s witness to  attest that he had not created any secondary copies of Holmseth’s hard-drive  while it was in custody.

Sgt. Norland testified he performed a search on the  hard-drive, which was seized by the EGFPD  on December 14, 2012 from Holmseth’s home/office in East Grand Forks, Minnesota.

Norland testified the hard-drive was given to him on  December 15, 2012 by EGFPD Officer Aeisso Schrage. Norland noted he did not actually  search the hard-drive until some time in March, 2013. “[Officer Shrage] asked  me to look for any illegal activity,” Norland said.

What was occurring with the hard-drive between December 15, 2012 and March, 2013 is not yet known.

However – questions now exist about why the EGFPD wanted  Holmseth’s hard-drive in the first place, and whether or not law enforcement had  any authority to search it at all.

The facts of the case paint a very dark picture that  indicate the entire matter is a rolling deception, that has finally begun to  unravel as result of a single District Judge being assigned to both a Family Division  file, and a Criminal Division file; both centering on Holmseth.

Both court cases heavily involve a journalism project  Holmseth endeavored in 2009 regarding a missing child from Florida named HaLeigh Cummings.

The darkest cloud hanging over the search and seizure issues surrounding  the hard-drive  comes directly from  the words of Ronald Galstad, city attorney, East   Grand Forks.

On January 4, 2013 during a Review Hearing, Attorney Galstad,  the State’s prosecutor against Holmseth, advised Honorable Tamara Yon during  court that the “Bureau of Criminal Apprehension” would not perform a  forensic examination of Holmseth’s computer without a separate “warrant”.  Galstad added that he planned on requesting a second warrant so the hard-drive could be searched.

There is no indication Galstad ever acquired any additional warrant  following the hearing. Holmseth was never served or copied on any such Warrant.

Galstad’s statement and admission about the BCA made sense; because  the language of the Search Warrant, which was signed by District Judge Jeff  Remick on December 13, 2012 did not authorize a search of the computer or  hard-drive.

“Now, therefore, you,  EGFPD Officer Aeisso Shrage and other law enforcement officers acting under  your direction and control, the peace officers aforesaid, hereby are commanded  between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. to search the described premises,  motor vehicle, and the person of Timothy Charles Holmseth for the above  described property and things, to seize the described property and things, and  to retain them in custody subject to court order and according to law”.        – December 13,  2012 / Judge Jeff Remick / Warrant

But … this was no ordinary computer. This was no ordinary  case. This is no ordinary situation.

Holmseth is an award-winning newspaper reporter that became a  lighting rod for conflict in 2009 after he acquired highly volatile information  about a kidnapping in Florida  while interviewing police officers, legal professionals, and family members of  a missing child named HaLeigh Cummings.

The missing child case was a high-media event because the  little girl disappeared 75 miles north of Orlando  on February 10, 2009; the same day a televised memorial was being held for  slain toddler Caylee Anthony.

Holmseth conducted hundreds of hours of interviews in  advance of countless articles and a book he wrote about the missing child case. There  was no doubt Holmseth had uncovered something valuable, because he was  interviewed by the FBI in 2010, and a copy of his book was requested by Major  Gary Bowling, Director of Law Enforcement, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office,  Palatka, Florida shortly after it was published.

Between 2009 and 2012 the police in East Grand Forks   had developed a definite and growing interest in Holmseth.

Holmseth was a person the EGFPD wanted to shut up. 

Lt. Rod Hajicek, EGFPD, telephoned Holmseth in 2009 and told  him he had been contacted by an employee of Xentel, Inc. Hajicek told Holmseth  that Xentel did not want Holmseth to publish the charity fraud story he was  working on. Holmseth’s story revealed the shady organization was involved in  Photoshopping a picture of HaLeigh Cummings and using it online to solicit donations. 

This extremely improper action by Hajicek caused a significant problem for the  City of East Grand Forks.   Xentel has been sued by the Attorney  General’s Office’s in Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and South Carolina for  defrauding the public through various scams.

In 2012 Holmseth wrote a detailed letter to the Minneapolis  FBI. He reported that a participant of the child trafficking underground that  took HaLeigh Cummings had explained to him that an organized group of criminals  is kidnapping children under the auspices of ‘child protection’ with what they  call a “rescue mission”.

Holmseth’s source also provided names of individuals  operating a baby-selling operation that involved infants being sold for huge  money; internationally, through the U.S. Embassy.

In his 2012 letter to the FBI, Holmseth provided names of  licensed legal professionals that were deeply involved in the so-called rescue missions,  which were actually quasi hoaxes, being executed in advance of charity fraud. Holmseth  explained how the participants strategically plan a fake kidnapping in  cooperation with members of the child’s family. When the news media announces  the kidnapping, the apparent heart-breaking tragedy becomes extremely lucrative via donations  to the family generated and driven by the Amber Alert.

In the case of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings, the charlatans that  contacted Holmseth, and subsequently, the EGFPD, were involved with Nancy  Grace. The group was advancing the hoax on the HLN network and Grace’s  television program. 

Police incident reports show Nancy Grace’s fake ‘reporter’ for the Cummings kidnapping,  Art Harris, contacted Lt.  Hajicek and requested he arbitraily arrest  Holmseth. Hajicek then contacted Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth in what  appeared to be a request for Widseth to manufacture a charge.

Although Widseth ignored Hajicek’s shady request, one has to wonder why the County Attorney didn’t immediately notice that Harris told Hajicek in an email that the FBI had visisted his friend at Xentel because of information they received from Holmseth.

The implications of Widseth’s ignorance may have been the difference between HaLeigh Cummings being found – or not being found.

Police incident reports at the EGFPD contain telephone calls from individuals that had just been questioned by law enforcement in Florida, per detective’s suspicion they had transported the missing child across state lines.

Kindapping suspects in Florida were actually telephoning the EGFPD and trying to secure the arrest of a journlalist in their town – and EGFPD tried to help them out.

Holmseth also explained how members of the underground had  targeted him personally, because of what he knew. He explained how the criminal  players contact family members of witnesses to their crimes, manipulate social  services, generate false police reports, and viciously oppress any witnesses  that speak up. The group uses cyber-stalking and the fear of the witness losing  their children through bogus child protection actions.

Emails in the court record show Art Harris contacted the mother of Holmseth’s child and they discussed how she could file child protection reports against him that would make him appear mentally unstable, armed and dangerous. Five CPS reports were filed against Holmseth in only four months during the summer of 2009.

Holmseth received telephone calls from strangers using voice changing software that warned him he was going to lose custody of his children if he did not shut up about HaLeigh being alive.

The onslaught of false CPS reports temporarily stopped in October of 2009 after Polk County Social Services (PCSS) spoke with the child’s play therapist. Miranda Cassetta, CPS agent, PCSS documented the play therapist said she observed aboslutely no child abuse or negelect, and stated the child expressed love for his father and really enjoyed being with him.

Interestingly – nearly every bogus report made to CPS about Holmseth contained mention of his work on the Cummings kidnapping. 

The information provided to federal authorities by Holmseth  exposed the relationships and misconduct of several EGFPD officers, a Minnesota  Public Defender, Guardian Ad Litem, Chief of Police, as well as the City  Attorney.

In October of 2012, Holmseth found himself trapped in the  proverbial Lion’s Den. He was now the Defendant in a criminal case filed against  him by City Attorney Ronald Galstad based upon charges initiated by Lt. Hajicek.

The charges alleged Holmseth violated an Injunction filed in  a Divorce Court  in the State of Florida, despite Holmseth  having never been married; nor had be been in the State of Florida. Holmseth was telephoned and warned he was going to be murdered if he attended the Broward County court hearing to defend himself.

Holmseth reported the death threat to Lt. Hajicek who made no report.

The City of East Grand Forks then brought criminal charges agaisnt Holmseth for publishing something in violation of the Florida Injunction. The EGFPD had no  legal “venue” to  bring the case.

But – they did not need a case if they could coerce the Defendant into a plea.   

The City of East Grand Forks assumed authority they did not  have, to bring a bogus charge they could not prove; because if Holmseth could  be convicted of a crime – he would lose his credibility as a witness.

Holmseth narrowly escaped their trap.

Attorney Michael LaCoursiere, Minnesota Public Defender’s  office, told Holmseth five minutes before his jury trial that if he didn’t  accept an Alford plea, Galstad was going to call two uniformed police officers  (Sgt. Chris Olson and Deputy Jesse Haugen) to lie on the witness stand to  convict him. LaCoursiere advised Holmseth that the cops had a plan to have him  put in St. Cloud State Prison.

Holmseth, a single parent, not willing to gamble with his  children, accepted the plea under duress – but a double-cross was already  planned.  

On December 12, 2012 a trap was sprung amidst a scheduled  Review Hearing when Holmseth was suddenly accused of violating the terms of the  Alford agreement – but not told what, specifically, he had done. Galstad had quietly  slipped a last second MOTION TO REVOKE to LaCoursiere via hand-delivery by Lt.  Hajicek – LaCoursiere did not tell Holmseth about the filing.

The men were quietly networking and working together, so smoothly, it appeared they had done it many times.

The plan collapsed; however, when Honorable Yon refused to  allow Galstad an impromptu Evidentiary Hearing, that day, without producing  Discovery to Holmseth.

The next day, December 13, 2012 the EGFPD petitioned the  District Court for a Search Warrant to seize Holmseth’s property – including  his computer and hard-drive. The Affidavit submitted by Officer Schrage stated  evidence was at risk of destruction and the computer needed to be immediately seized. 

An agreement was subsequently reached between Holmseth and  Galstad. On April 26, 2013 Holmseth’s property was returned via a court order  by Honorable Yon.

But … the hard-drive didn’t work anymore.

A triple-cross – it was the second time Galstad and the City  Police had broken an agreement with Holmseth.

In July, 2013 Holmseth filed a complaint to EGF Police Chief  Michael Hedlund regarding the in-operable hard-drive and destruction of  property. Hedlund responded to Holmseth stating it was not the fault of the police  and advised Holmseth the City would not pay to recover it.

But – Hedlund’s letter contained an interesting statement. “The  officers used a program that allowed them to view the contents of your  hard-drive without any changes occurring during their investigation,” he said.

Hedlund’s  admission declares the Sheriff’s Office deliberately  uses a computer program that does not create entries in the Administrator log of the  hard-drive.

Interestingly – the Police Chief actually knew that subtle fact and pointed it out in his letter.

This admission by the Police Chief creates a tremendous problem  for City Attorney Galstad, and the all-around credibility and integrity of the  EGFPD and PCSO. 

Notabaly – Hedlund stated officers (plural) had searched Holmseth’s hard-drive, while Sgt. Norland made no mention of the others during his testimony.

During Holmseth’s cross exmination of Norland at the November 25 hearing, Galstad continuously objected to any questions Holmseth asked that did not relate directly to the issue of a ‘copy’ being made of the hard-drive.

Holmseth was taking flak because he was directly over the target.

Galstad had already told Judge Yon on January 4, 2013 that  the BCA would not examine the computer’s hard-drive without a proper warrant.

The question now exists; under what authority did the PCSO  or Chief Hedlund’s investigators enter Holmseth’s hard-drive and spend all day going through his private  property? If the BCA did not have the authority; what authority did the PCSO  or EGFPD have?

The attitude and mindset of the law enforcement officials involved in this matter indicate they are operating within a ‘culture’ that encourages abuse and miscondcuct.

When the property was returned to Holmseth by Shrage on April 26, 2013, the officer arrogantly boasted to Holmseth he had read all of his (Holmseth’s) daughter’s text messages between her and her boyfriend. Shrage appeared giddishly excited about his behavior.

Shrage’s comments about  Holmseth’s teenage daughter are a manifestation of very serious issues that indicate the man is a predator. Holmseth worries Shrage may victimize other young girls the same way.

Detective Chris Olson, EGFPD, also appears to be a predator with tendencies to stalk and intimidate. During the execution of the police department’s Search Warrant on December 14, 2012, he asked Holmseth’s daughter where she worked. The teenage girl told him, and the very next morning, for the first time ever, Sgt. Olson appeared at the restaurant while the child was working and she had to wait on him.

The insult upon injury is Holmseth’s complete innocence from  the very beginning. “Since they did not find any information that was of  evidentiary value they did not make a copy of any of the information that was  on your hard-drive,” Hedlund said.

The emerging facts have revealed a disturbing reality that  could potentially affect past, present, and future cases.

The program Sgt. Norland used to spend an entire day going  through Holmseth’s private property at his lesiure, made no changes to the computer. That means  it leaves no record of law enforcement’s activity.

The tool appears to accomadate a procedure that is a deliberate violation of Search and Seizure laws intended to assist law enforcement escape keeping a  chain of evidence.

Therefore – the police need only lie to a Judge and claim  that evidence on a computer hard-drive is at risk of destruction or removal and  needs to be seized and retained. After it is retained the Sheriff’s Office  can view all the contents of the hard-drive without any record being generated.

During the hearing on November 25, 2013 Holmseth advised the  Court he had a Request For Production he would like to submit to Galstad.  Honorable Yon advised him to hand it to Galstad.

Galstad reviewed the document and declared he wasn’t going to give  Holmseth anything.

This is a developing story.
