MISSING WOMAN FOUND AFTER OVER 40 YEARS

AUSTIN, TX  –  In 1981, two deceased individuals, who were the apparent victims of a homicide, were discovered in a wooded area in Houston, Texas, and their identities could not be determined at that time.  In 2021, Identifinders International, through the use of genetic genealogy, was able to positively identify the bodies that were found in 1981 as Florida couple Tina Gail Linn Clouse and Harold Dean Clouse Jr.  The couple had an infant daughter named Holly who was not found with the remains of the Clouses.

The Linn and Clouse families have been searching for answers concerning the welfare of the Clouses and their daughter, Holly, since they were last heard from in 1980.  Last year, when the families learned that the two bodies found in Houston in 1981 were, in fact, Tina and Dean Clouse, the families began looking for answers as to what happened to Baby Holly and the circumstances surrounding the deaths of the Clouses.

Baby Holly has been located alive and well and is now 42 years of age.  Holly has been notified of the identities of her biological parents and has been in contact with her extended biological family and they hope to meet in person soon.

I am extremely proud of the exceptional work done by my office’s newly formed Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit.  My office diligently worked across state lines to uncover the mystery surrounding Holly’s disappearance.  We were successful in our efforts to locate her and reunite her with her biological family.”  Attorney General Paxton said.

Through the collaborative efforts of the Texas Attorney General’s Office Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit, the Lewisville Police Department, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  This investigation highlights the hard work and collaboration of multiple law enforcement divisions across the country and demonstrates the importance of working cold case and missing persons investigations.

“At the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, we know that with advancements in technology and the hard work and dedication of law enforcement, we can get answers, even after four decades,” said John Bischoff, vice president of the Missing Children Division at NCMEC.  “We are thrilled that Holly will now have the chance to connect with her biological family who has been searching for her for so long. We hope that this is source of encouragement for other families who have missing loved ones and reminds us all to never give up.  NCMEC applauds the collaborative effort of the Texas Attorney General’s Office Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit, the Lewisville Police Department and all the assisting agencies who came together to make today’s news possible.”

“Finding Holly is a birthday present from heaven since we found her on Junior’s birthday.  I prayed for more than 40 years for answers and the Lord has revealed some of it… we have found Holly.”

“Thank you to all of the investigators for working so hard to find Holly.  I prayed for them day after day and that they would find Holly and she would be alright.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Mindy Montford.  We will be forever grateful,” said Donna Casasanta (Holly’s grandmother).

“It was so exciting to see Holly.  I was so happy to meet her for the first time.  It is such a blessing to be reassured that she is alright and has had a good life.  The whole family slept well last night.  The Hope for Holly Project was a success thanks to Mindy and her team,” said Cheryl Clouse (Holly’s aunt).

“After finally being able to reunite with Holly, I dreamed about her and my sister, Tina last night.  In my dream, Tina was laying on the floor rolling around and laughing and playing with Holly like I saw them do many times before when they lived with me prior to moving to Texas.  I believe Tina’s finally resting in peace knowing Holly is reuniting with her family. I personally am so relieved to know Holly is alive and well and was well cared for, but also torn up by it all. That baby was her life,” said Sherry Linn Green (Holly’s aunt).

“The very first thing that ran through my head when we heard Holly was found was the call that I got eight months ago from Allison about my sister’s death.  The juxtaposition of that call with Holly’s sudden discovery just popped into my head.  To go from hoping to find her to suddenly meeting her less than 8 months later – how miraculous is that?  All of the detectives involved ..They all expressed such fortitude to get to the bottom of this case..  They have the Linn family’s complete support,” said Les Linn (Holly’s uncle).

The investigation into the murders of Holly’s biological parents, Tina and Dean Clouse, is ongoing and, if anyone has information about their deaths, please contact the Texas Attorney General’s Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit at coldcaseunit@oag.texas.gov .

Children Must Be Supervised Full Time

Catching Predators: An Exclusive Look
Inside A Statewide Underage Sex Sting

ROGERS COUNTY, OK  –  A two-month undercover sex sting to take down child sex predators ended with nearly a dozen men in jail in Rogers County, but this operation extends far beyond the county line.

Operation “Guardian Angels” went after adults trying to meet and have sex with what they thought were 14-year-old boys and 15-year-old girls.

For the last two months, News On 6’s Reagan Ledbetter rode along with investigators at all times of the day and night, as investigators arrested suspected predators from Joplin, Missouri to Oklahoma City.  Months ago, investigators created fake social media profiles of 14-year-old boys and 15-year-old girls.

They arrested 11 men accused of trying to meet and have sex with those children.

Deputies said what people do not realize is predators will do whatever, and go wherever, to meet children.  In one of the cases, deputies said the suspect drove from Joplin, Missouri, rented a hotel room, and messaged the girl and told her he wants to have sex with her.  But, it didn’t stop there.

Just days later, the operation went to Oklahoma City.

“We have an arrest warrant that we are getting ready to execute on a violent predator down here in Oklahoma City,” said Lt. Kyle Baker with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office.  “He’s been soliciting a 15-year-old female for sex and other disgusting things he would like to do to her.”

Investigators teamed up with OKC police to take down a foster dad, Craig Hooper, who they said told the fake profile he wanted to get her a bus ticket to come to Oklahoma City so he could be her foster father and have sex with her.  Investigators said half of their arrests were men trying to meet boys.

They said two of the suspects showed up with loaded guns.

In another case, deputies said Johnny Rose planned to pick up who he thought was a 15-year-old girl for sex and to do drugs, but he tried to get away. They chased him and eventually arrested him on the highway.

“We already positively identified who he was; we were basically just waiting for him to show up,” said Sgt. Bo Williams with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office.  “We’ve already got communications with him in regards to sexual stuff he was wanting to do with our undercover profile; so, he’s bought and paid for.”

In the past, sexual predators had to drive around looking for a child to kidnap.  Now, the predators are in your own living room, on your kid’s phone, and you have no idea – until it’s too late.

“They are predators and technology gives them a vehicle to do this.  Most of the time if you look at the stats, untouched,” said Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton.

Law enforcement’s worst fear is they don’t get to a suspect before he actually assaults a real victim, but that’s a reality and that’s what led to the arrest of 18-year-old Wade Ennis.  He’s accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, which was captured on video.

Deputies said he admitted to that crime, as well as abusing other children who were even younger.

“That’s the one we want to get,” said Sgt. John Haning with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office.  “He had already touched, or potentially touched, three underage victims.  As he was getting older, he was getting more brazen.”

Investigators said parents have to know what their kids are doing online, because the harsh reality is, for every one they arrest they have four more trying to meet a child for sex.

They said 80 percent of all child predators never get caught.

We Stand With Pastor Coates And Religious Freedom

Stand with pastor arrested for following
God, rather than man

Pastor James Coates is a faithful pastor and follower of God.  As a result, he ended up in jail.

Pastor Coates leads GraceLife Church in Alberta, Canada.  When the government issued edicts that limited the free exercise of worship with overbearing COVID-19 restrictions, he chose to follow Christ.

In true Gestapo form, government officials attended one of the church’s services in February and then charged the pastor with violating an order to shut down the church by the end of January.

STAND WITH PASTOR COATES

According to Breitbart, Pastor Coates turned himself in, but rejected an offer by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to release him from jail if he promised to stop holding church services on Sunday.

As of today, Pastor Coates remains in prison, but has an appeal hearing pending.  He is being represented by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which defends the constitutional and religious freedoms of Canadians.
