Faye Aline Self, Monday4 the Missing

What better way to honor her missing mother than being a voice for not only Faye Aline Self, but for many other victims of crime in Louisiana as well. Please join daughter Karrie and all of us at Peace4 the Missing as we do our best to bring light to the darkness surrounding the case of Faye Aline Self and all the others.

Fight For The Victims, March 30!

written by daughter, Karrie

As you all know, My family has been begging the Red River Sheriff's Department for justice for nearly 26 years. March 30, 2009, will mark the 26th years I have been without my mother. I grew up in the shadow of a phantom mother and with the vivid imagination only a child can have. It took my child like mind six years to actual conjure up the thought, she might be dead. With this in mind, I still do not know where she is, or where her remains lay. I desperately want to bring Justice to Louisiana since finding my mother has never been a priority. If it were just her case, I would think it were an anomaly. But, it is apparently the standard by which most cases are handled in the state. Below is what I am using as a cover letter to send to every Federal and Louisiana Authority I can think of. Please join me in being a voice for the countless victims in the State of Louisiana. You may contact any agency directly, or send your notes:

I have also attached a list of victims from Louisiana, This in no way encompasses every unsolved case in the state, however, it is a sobering look at the daily reality a victims family lives through daily.

Thanks ahead of time for your compassion and help for the victims!

I am appealing to you to help those in your state that can no longer help themselves. I am referring to the staggering number of unsolved missing and murdered cases in the state of Louisiana. My mother, FAYE ALINE SELF, disappeared from Red River Parish March 30, 1983. As the letter that follows explains, we tried desperately to bring closure to her case, but have been met with resistance from the local Red River Sheriffs department to the Louisiana Attorney General's office. In the years I have spent researching my mom's case, I have come across countless cases that could very well be my own. Judy Gary, vanished in 1988, and her family was also denied the opportunity to file a missing persons report. This in itself is not a crime, though it certainly should be. I have been told many times that there is no one has jurisdiction over police. And, I must first prove that the local police committed a crime. The loss of evidence and other things listed in my letter are not illegal as of yet. It has been told to me, that it is a shame, but incompetence is not illegal and in the smaller parishes this sometimes happens! It was further explained to me that when the smaller parishes can not afford to hold a murder trial, it is easier to call a case a 'suicide' or 'self defense' to save Parish funding.

I kindly remind you that Jesus, Our Savior was moved to compassion for the masses. I am only asking that you and those of us with murdered and missing loved ones stand together to combat the air of corruption that has surrounded the state of Louisiana for so long.

I humbly ask that you look at the list of unsolved cases I have included here and pray for guidance in the laws and procedures that need to be changed for the betterment of the citizens of Louisiana. This list in no way encompasses all of the unsolved missing and murdered, but it is a sobering look at the reality that so many of us face daily.

I eagerly await your reply.

HR632 NATIONAL Silver Alert Act and Kristen's Act Reauthorization SUMMARY

Passing this bill would mean many things to benefit missing adults in our country.  The Silver Alert has been successful in the states that have it and we need it to be national like the Amber Alert for children.  This bill would also allocate funding for many organizations to educate, advocate and provide assistance to families trying to locate a missing loved one.

2/10/2009--Passed House without amendment. (There is 1 other summary)

(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary has been expanded because action occurred on the measure.)

Title I: Silver Alert Communications Network - National Silver Alert Act 2009 - (Sec. 103) Directs the Attorney General to establish a national Silver Alert communications network within the Department of Justice (DOJ) to assist regional and local search efforts for missing seniors in coordination with states, local governments, and law enforcement agencies. Defines "missing senior" as any individual who is reported to, or identified by, a law enforcement agency as a missing person and who meets state requirements for designation.

(Sec. 104) Directs the Attorney General to designate a DOJ employee as the National Coordinator of the Silver Alert communications network. Sets forth the duties of the Coordinator, including the establishment of voluntary guidelines for states to use in developing Silver Alert plans, the development of protocols for efforts to recover missing seniors and for notifying law enforcement agencies that a senior is missing, and the establishment of an advisory group to assist states, local governments, law enforcement agencies, and other entities involved in the network.

Directs the Coordinator to: (1) report to Congress annually on the Coordinator's activities and the effectiveness and status of the Silver Alert plans of each state; (2) establish minimum standards for the issuance of alerts through the network; (3) make available to states, local governments, law enforcement and other agencies training and educational programs and materials; and (4) coordinate training and educational activities with the Assistant Secretary for Aging of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) and the head of the Missing Alzheimer's Disease Patient Alert Program within DOJ.

(Sec. 107) Authorizes appropriations to carry out the Silver Alert communications network.

(Sec. 108) Directs the Attorney General to provide grants to states for the development and enhancement of state programs and activities to support Silver Alert plans and the network. Authorizes appropriations for FY2009-FY2013

Title II: Kristen's Act Reauthorization - Kristen's Act Reauthorization of 2009 - (Sec. 203) Directs the Attorney General to make competitive grants to public agencies or nonprofit private organizations to: (1) maintain a national resource center and information clearinghouse for missing and unidentified adults; (2) maintain a national, interconnected database to track missing adults endangered due to age, diminished mental capacity, or the the circumstances of disappearance, when foul play is suspected or circumstances are unknown; (3) coordinate public and private programs that locate or recover missing adults; (4) provide assistance and training to law enforcement agencies, state and local governments, and other agencies involved with missing adults; (5) provide assistance to families in locating and recovering missing adults; and (6) assist in public notification and victim advocacy related to missing adults.

Requires the Attorney General to: (1) periodically solicit applications for grants using the Federal Register and the DOJ website; (2) coordinate federally-funded programs relating to missing adults; and (3) encourage coordination among grant recipients.

For a complete list of all the members names, addresses, and phone numbers of the Senate Judiciary Committee, please go to the link.  Please make your voices heard for those who no longer have a voice.  These Senators hold this bill in their hands!

Myra Spearman's Web site exposes perpetrators of domestic abuse

Times Correspondent | Monday, March 23, 2009 |

Myra Spearman, 43, and the mother of four, spent years in a painful relationship that sapped her energy, her money and her spirit. Her perseverance in spite of it is an inspiration to the hundreds of women who send e-mails via the Web site she created to help other women.

Her site,, is a database of persons, male and female, from three states convicted of domestic abuse and violence. Spearman created the site as a resource for people, especially women, to take an extra step to help themselves.

One of the first women to contact Spearman was Cherry Simpson, the Will County, Ill., mother of domestic-abuse victim Regan Martin, whose story recently was told on the Chicago Tribune's front page.

"Myra is doing what the government should be doing," Simpson said.

"We're working on a federal bill now that would do the same for domestic abusers that citizens got for sex offenders. Women shouldn't be in the dark about who these people are."

Simpson's daughter has spent years trying to flee domestic abuse. Though her spouse was convicted multiple times of crimes including abuse, stalking and ignoring orders of protection, the fact that Regan and her ex-husband have children entails perennial contact and visitation that exposes Regan's whereabouts.

"You can't get lost, even if you try," Simpson said.

"At least with Web sites like Myra's, other women can get some help in avoiding known abusers right from the start."

Spearman's Web site, which allows people to access records by state and by name, currently tracks information from public court records in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.

Not all convicted abusers are listed, but the database grows as Spearman receives replies and records from the courts she contacts daily. She now is at work getting full records of domestic-abuse convictions in Cook County, Ill.

The Web site includes a blog where women share their stories and give aid and comfort, as well as information.

Most heartbreaking are the e-mails Spearman receives from women throughout the country living in abusive relationships. They write to cheer Spearman on, and leave messages like this one: "Thank you for your Web site. I wish I could send money to help, but I am broke from trying to divorce my abusive husband."

And this one: "What if we know an abuser, and his name is not on the list?" And this long e-mail from an Illinois woman:

"I saw your newscast this morning. Please, I want to help. I am a domestic-abuse survivor. I was recently treated for PTSD from abuse that had happened 13 years ago. I was treated those years as if I was the perp, not the victim.

"I was humiliated while laying in the hospital with a concussion and bruises. I, as you, lived in fear, with no help from that piece of paper called a restraining order. His crimes against me were called a misdemeanor. He might as well have blown off a stop light. Please, again, I really would like to help you spread the word. The legal system may not be strong enough to help these people but if we all band together, I know we can make a difference. I want to be part of that chain, not only for my recovery and my children but for others out there who are on the battle lines alone and scared."

A spate of stories in the news, including Regan's, recently has put a fine focus on domestic violence. There's a lawsuit involving the dating site (a woman claims injury because the site does not screen for known abusers), as well as the January deaths of Nova Henry (former girlfriend of ex-Bulls player Eddy Curry) and her infant daughter at the hands of a boyfriend against whom Henry had what turned out to be a worthless restraining order.

"There are thousands of homicides every year and even more reports of injuries and abuse," Spearman said.

"If I can save even one woman from experiencing what I did, all the effort will have been worthwhile."

Abuse by the numbers

* One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.

* An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year; 85 percent of domestic violence victims are women.

* The costs of intimate-partner violence exceed $5.8 billion each year, $4.1 billion of which is for direct medical and mental health services.

* Victims of intimate-partner violence lose almost 8 million days of paid work because of the violence perpetrated against them by current or former boyfriends, husbands or dates; the loss is equivalent to more than 32,000 full-time jobs and almost 5.6 million days of household productivity.

* There are 16,800 homicides and $2.2 million in medically treated injuries due to intimate-partner violence annually.

Teen abuse

Because abuse of women often starts at an early age when young people are dating, women like Jennifer Gescheidler Kandalec of Dyer, profiled in The Times on Feb. 21, 2009, are trying to educate women still in their teens.

Kandalec is the Indiana leader for Moms and Dads for Education to Stop Teen Dating Abuse, or, MADE. The Lake Central High School graduate is working to see that Indiana schools include education on dating-violence prevention in middle and high school health classes. For more information,
