Why did all this begin?
As long as I can remember I have been obsessed with True Crime. Even while I was away at College I would watch America's Most Wanted every Saturday Night at 8 PM like clockwork.
I am an addict who has been in almost every "system" this country has. You might be thinking... so what. Well, I have a different perspective because I have been on every side.
Let me first say I am not proud of any of my negative past but there is a need to embrace it. I have been to Drug Detox and Rehabilitation Centers, Mental Health Institutions and even The Prison System so I have the experience to be in the shoes and mind of the missing and murdered I cover.
My life experiences along with deep empathy allow me to see things through their eyes as I have walked in similar footsteps of many of them.
I felt a need for adequate coverage of every type of case no matter their lifestyle, skin color or gender.
I originally started, "Missing Addicts And Mentally ill" which morphed into what is now "Missing Persons Cases Network". With the help of volunteers we are where we are today. A big shout out to Sonya, Nikki, Melody and Erin.
When I was 21 I went to Italy for the Summer to Study Abroad. I was involved in an accident when I got home putting me in a Coma for 7 days. I coded two times in the ambulance. I heard the first night was bad but I was also told the second day I was in complete organ failure.
It had gotten so bad that my local Pastor was called to come and give me my last rites. Seven days from when the event happened I woke up on my birthday, July 5.
This caused me to miss an entire year of college. I had to learn how to walk, write and process my thought again. It changed my life forever but I believe I made it through so I can do this type of work.
I want to save as many lives as possible.
We focus on raising awareness for ALL missing and murdered victims who need it or otherwise wouldn't get it.
Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Without all of YOU there would be no MPCN.
Our Mission is to treat every life with the same value!
To be completely transparent I need to first and foremost let everyone know that I, myself, do have a record for drug dealing. Deep in my addiction I made some bad decisions so I could continue to fuel it. I do not like making excuses for myself, but my father had a stroke and need 24/7 care. I began abusing Xanax to self medicate because I couldn't take the fact my idol was dying.
I was involved in a drug trafficking ring on the darkest part of the inter-web known as “The Dark Net”. My father was dying and Xanax became my higher power and the rest is history. I did 6 months with 5 years suspended. I served 5 months on the 6 and it was the biggest wake up call of my life. In all honesty it saved my life so I try and save other’s.
