In Re: Missing Court Record / George Robert Lyons

March 28, 2017

Assistant Chief Judge
The Honorable Tamara L. Yon
816 Marin Ave, Suite 210
Crookston, MN 56716

Honorable Yon,

I am contacting you in regards to an issue I perceive to be serious that involves a court file that appears to have entirely vanished from the State website.

There is no court file number for the case against George Robert Lyons. He was charged with 1st and 2nd degree sexual assault charges against a minor in January, 2016. The case was widely reported upon in the Grand Forks Herald and Valley News. Media reports make reference to court documents and court records. Yet, now there is no record at all.

I have contacted Polk County Court Administrator Kathy Narlock twice regarding this matter and she will not respond.

This is a public safety issue.

I am requesting the Court rectify this matter in every single way.

Respectfully,
Timothy Charles Holmseth

In Re: Public Data Request / Police Shooting Video

Ms. Brocker,

I am in receipt of the BCI interview with Jennifer Elliott (wife of police shooting victim David James Elliott) that I received from your office.

During said interview BCI Special Agent Michael Ness refers extensively to police-cam evidence.

At the 9:48 marker on the audio SA Ness said “He is on the trooper’s video camera….” – referring to video from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

At the 13:06 marker on the audio SA Ness said, “Sgt. Schneider’s in-car camera is the best there…” referring to video from the Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office.

At the 14:47 marker on the audio SA Ness said, “You can see him on one of the body cameras…” referring to Grand Forks Police body cam video.

I am requesting the aforementioned data.

Respectfully,
Timothy Charles Holmseth

NDBCI Records: Evidence indicates NBBCI agents attempted to hide evidence in police shooting investigation

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 23, 2016, 12:50 P.M. CST

Write Into Action has learned from a confidential source that Altru Hospital has been under investigation for ‘pills’ since at least October of 2015.

The source said she was present when an E/R doctor at Altru told her friend he could not prescribe her any mediation for pain management because Altru was “under investigation” for that.

Altru is tied to the David James Elliott pursuit and shooting in several ways.

Altru Health System

According to the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), “Thousands of prescription pills” were found in the vehicle of David Elliott after he was shot in the Altru parking lot following a police pursuit that began on February 27, 20105.

Ironically, David Elliott’s troubles on February 27, 2015, appear to have begun at Altru. David Elliott, and his wife, Jennifer Elliott, visited Altru on the day of the pursuit/shooting.

“On February 27, 2015, DAVID ELLIOTT had a doctor’s appointment at 7:50 a.m. At that time DAVID ELLIOTT was advised that his physician was no longer going to prescribe medications to DAVID ELLIOTT,” the BCI said.

According to BCI investigative reports there was six prescription bottles prescribed to David Elliott. The report also contained a stand alone entry that said, “Also, located during the search of the vehicle were thousands of prescription pills.”

The BCI investigative records reveal David Elliott’s pick-up truck looked like a traveling pharmacy.

However – David Elliott was never charged with any crime regarding the pills or drugs.

DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY PAPERS

Write Into Action is investigating a situation that involves ‘power of attorney’ papers that were in David Elliott’s vehicle at the time he was shot.

BCI evidence inventory receipts reveal “Durable Power of Attorney” documents were found in David Elliott’s vehicle.

Records show the BCI executed a search warrant on David Elliott’s vehicle on March 4, 2015. During that search, BCI agents recorded finding prescription bottles and “thousands of pills”.

However, NO entry is made on the evidence log for “Durable Power of Attorney Papers”.

On March 10, 2015, BCI agents Michael J. Ness, and Scott Kraft met with Jennifer Elliott at the NDBCI office in Grand Forks.

The report said, “At 10:01 a.m., Special Agent (S/A) Michael J. Ness and S/A Scott Kraft met with Jennifer Elliott and her mother at the Grand Forks office of the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (NDBCI). S/A Ness advised Jennifer Elliott of the officer involved shooting investigation in regard to DAVID ELLIOTT. It should be noted that Jennifer Elliott had specific questions regarding the investigation”

“Jennifer Elliott asked if she would be able to obtain the durable power of attorney paperwork that was in DAVID ELLIOTT’s vehicle. S/A Ness provided the durable power of attorney paperwork to Jennifer Elliott. (Please see copy of Evidence Inventory and Receipt, Attachment #2.),” the report said.

Records show a stand alone BCI inventory receipt was then created on March 10, 2015, that included only one item – “Durable Power of Attorney Paperwork” that was located in “Vehicle of David Elliott”.

The stand alone receipt is dated March 10, 2015, but no ‘time’ is given. However, the receipts for prior search warrants contain a ‘time’.

The paperwork was signed for by Jennifer Elliott at 10:54 A.M. on March 10, 2016.

The original omission of the paperowrk found during a search warrant by the BCI is suspicious.

Unless the BCI agent quick left the meeting with Jennifer Elliott; went and did another search of David Elliott’s vehicle; found the power of attorney paperwork; documented the search; returned and gave it to Jennifer Elliott; all in less than an hour; the evidence shows the BCI attempted to hide evidence in an official investigation of a police shooting.

Write Into Action is investigating the relevance of the ‘Durable Power of Attorney’ paperwork that he and his wife apparently prepared, and how it may factor in to David Elliott’s alleged threats to committ suicide on the night in question, while simultaneously attempting to reach Altru Hospital (while the police formed a gauntlet to stop him).

Write Into Action has discovered the following thus far.

  • Jerad Bratten was not scheduled to work the day he shot David Elliott
  • Jerad Bratten was not wearing his regular uniform the day he shot David Elliott
  • Jerad Bratten did not insert his video card into the in-car camera and recorded nothing
  • Jerad Bratten began his unscheduled shift at about the same time police began chasing David Elliott
  • Jerad Bratten’s body-camera recorded nothing pertinent
  • Video of the police pursuit of David Elliott reveals the BCI has attempted to place GFSO Deputy Andy Schneider in two separate locations at exactly 11 P.M., February, 27, 2015

Bratten BCI No Cameras

Dash-cam video from a Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) vehicle proves the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) is covering up a murder plot.

Video of the David James Elliott pursuit, published by WDAZ, shows law enforcement is collectively lying about the events that occurred on February 27, 2015.

BCI investigators and dash-cam video place Grand Forks Sheriff’s Deputy Any Schneider at I-29 near Thompson, North Dakota at the moment the pursuit is called off at approximately 11:08 P.M.

However, the BCI also tries to place Schneider at the Grand Force Air Force Base, eating dinner at 11:00 P.M.

The secret was exposed after a Write Into Action investigation using the very short segments of video that was released to the public; released only after Write Into Action (Timothy Charles Holmseth) made a written request for the video from the GFPD.

Write Into Action compared the video timeline to the events timeline in the BCI investigative records.

WDAZ screenshot Elliott pursuit termination

GFSO Deputy Andy Schneider

At 11:07:57 P.M. in the officer cam video, the WDAZ reporter says, “the chase is called off near Thompson”.

At the same time (11:07:57 P.M.) in the published video, an officer can be heard saying over the police radio, “Since your terminating you don’t want me to deploy…”

The officer heard referring to ‘deploying’ is Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Deputy Andy Schneider. He is referring to his plan to deploy spike-strips on I-29 South, one mile north of Thompson, against David Elliott.

Here is how we know that.

This is what Schneider told BCI investigators during the BCI investigation into the shooting of David Elliott in the Altru Hospital parking lot that occurred at the end of the hours long pursuit.

  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he believed the pursuit occurred between 10:45 – 11:00 P.M.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he was West of Thompson, North Dakota and heading to the Grand Forks Air Force base to have dinner when he learned of the pursuit.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he positioned his vehicle at a crossover one mile north of the Thompson, North Dakota exit.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he deployed his spike-strips.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators GFPD Sgt. Mark Ellingson terminated the pursuit.

The BCI investigator reports Schneider did not have his emergency lights activated and walked into the ditch to avoid getting run into by David Elliott.

The aforementioned proves beyond all doubt Deputy Schneider was at the scene.

SCHNEIDER’S PRESENCE AT PURSUIT NOT MENTIONED IN GFSO AFFIDAVIT TO COURT

The Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office attempted to conceal Schneider’s whereabouts and activities by omitting his presence near Thompson, North Dakota in an Affidavit filed with the court.

Now watch this.

In the very same report that the BCI investigators relays 1-5 above, he says, “Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.”

DID YOU CATCH THAT, FOLKS?

We know from the video that Schneider was at I-29 at 11:07:57 P.M. putting out spike strips.

SOURCE FOR WRITE INTO ACTION ANALYSIS

In regard to the first (1st) pursuit with DAVID ELLIOTT, Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider said he was west of Thompson, North Dakota, when it began. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider believed that it occurred between 10:45 p.m., to 11:00 p.m., and he was heading towards the Grand Forks Air Force Base, Grand Forks, North Dakota, for dinner. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider overheard via the radio that Grand Forks Police Department Officer Dan Harvala had a pursuit that began in Grand Forks, North Dakota, but was now southbound on Interstate 29 (I-29).
-BCI

Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider positioned his vehicle at a crossover about one (1) mile north of the Thompson, North Dakota, exit. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider notified Grand Forks Police Department that he had deployed his spike strips. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider indicated that Grand Forks Police Department Sergeant Mark Ellingson terminated the pursuit. The Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) relayed that DAVID ELLIOTT had called 911 and told them that he was going to hurt himself or others if law enforcement did not quit following him. It should be noted that Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider did not have his emergency lights activated and walked into the ditch to avoid getting run into by DAVID ELLIOTT. DAVID ELLIOTT continued southbound on I-29. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.
