Heidi: Someone called police on me – and my son; was it connected to Nxivm/Clare/Dennis Burke?

Heidi Hutchinson

Your Tax Dollars at Work

By Heidi Hutchinson

On January 2, 2019, at approximately 3:30 PM, I was in the parking lot of a supermarket near our new residence when two uniformed police officers in a patrol car called out my name as I emerged from my vehicle.

After establishing my identity, which NEARLY matched the description of the “suspect” police were searching for, the officers explained they’d received an emergency dispatch from Adult Protection Services IN A DIFFERENT COUNTY alleging that a person in my care was being actively “neglected” in that very moment they received the dispatch call – at 3:20 PM –  per the police report.

I’ve attached the report here:

When I was asked the whereabouts of the allegedly “neglected” person in my care, I slid the side van door open to introduce the officers to my healthy, well-groomed, beaming adult son, comfortably and safely secured in the back of the wheelchair adapted Van, in his wheelchair.

The cops both already knew based on the “anonymous” call – that my son is a person who requires 24-hour protective supervision due to his epilepsy.

Meanwhile, at our new home, two police patrol units were dispatched to search my home. The police did not necessarily intend to tell me about the unlawful, un-WARRANTED search — a search without a search warrant.

During their search, one of the cops accidentally activated a special phone adapted for my disabled son’s use that automatically calls his father, Jeff.  When no one replied to Jeff’s response to the call, he rushed over to the house, calling and calling all the while until, finally, an officer answered the phone at the house.

The officer said they’d wait for Jeff at the house but the patrol cars took off before he arrived.

Meantime, in the parking lot — after realizing they were victims of an apparent hoax  — I asked for their cards. The two cops explained how their business cards hadn’t yet been printed and how their police “partners over at the house,” would be the ones to provide the report number.

They did inform me that none of our new neighbors, in fact, nobody in the County we’ve moved to made any complaint. They stressed it was a referral from LA County, not Ventura County Adult Protection Services. That the “anonymous” call to LA County did not originate from my ex-husband.

Just then, one of the patrol units who’d apparently left our nearby home to come to the parking lot, which my son found far more amusing than I, pulled up and one of the officers queried me about our whereabouts that day.

In fact, we’d just left a disabled young adult activities program in Ventura County, where we’d spent nearly the entire day together before stopping off at the food market on our way home.

Due, in part to the fallout of the Malibu fires; mudslides, construction, traffic, and dangerous road conditions, we haven’t been in LA COUNTY much — where my son was allegedly being neglected and a police dispatch was required to rescue him — for weeks!

One clue as to who or what may be behind this misuse of law enforcement at a time when many government workers aren’t being paid at all and resources are stretched thin, is found in the police report description of me, the suspect, that was “anonymously” called in.

As you’ll note in the report, the suspect described to the police by the allegedly anonymous caller has “blonde or STRAWBERRY” colored hair.

This is a photo of my current hair color for the past several months. I’ve been “neglecting” to color my hair due to time constraints while caring for our son, with little assistance due to cutbacks for disabled services. (I have some wait time to muse on FR, while my son is at various activities which I transport him to and must remain close by in case he has a seizure).

There is not a strand of “Strawberry” color in my naturally ash brown dark hair, nor has there been any strawberry or red tone for years, not since my last bad bleaching accident, the day prior to the taking of the photo of me FR previously ran with my comments and stories.

This suggests that the anonymous caller hasn’t seen me in person recently and likely also wanted to be sure there was no mistake in identifying and, hopefully, “arresting” me — based on how he or she believes I look, judging from the time of that photo.

This is not, as our local police at our old home in Malibu, and even the FBI are aware, the first time in recent years, I have been harassed.

I am fairly certain Bronfman (and/or Salinas) money is behind those carrying out ongoing plans to destroy various Nxivm “enemies,” using even government personnel and contractors.

(When they’re not throwing a bone to a Mexican immigrant or hopeful Mexican immigrant or Mexican-owned business to help do their dirty work. But that’s another incident, another story.)

Strangely, caregiver and nursing agencies, such as one in Calabasas, “Gibraltar,” sent me caregivers, one who said his name was “Keith” — who was an African whose “real” name is “Promise” — who tried to entrap me in a time sheet fraud scam, another caregiver named “Lauren” — whose “real” name is “Ariel” — a hottie from Long Island, NY who drove a badass new Prius cross-country and offered to pay for our internet service when I claimed I had it off because I couldn’t afford it  and “Jezebel Lopez,” who frequently phoned with an excuse but never showed up while Frank Parlato was our house guest.

And then there was “Puto” who was playing tech games and threatening my young cousin from Clifton Park who threatened me repeatedly and only stopped when Frank Parlato confronted him.

So, while I deeply sympathize with the real “Keith Raniere’s” traumatic past, where he claimed in a New York Times Magazine interview he was forced to be his dying mother’s “sole caregiver,” I do wonder if part of his multi-billionaire sponsored world takeover plan doesn’t include some sort of “Rainbow Cultural Garden” human trafficking element, through certain government contracted caregiver agencies.

At least, that may be what Clare was told to justify her “business” expenditures toward quashing one of KAR’s enemies.

I am kinda torn between wanting to see Dennis Burke fry fast and furious, or see him last long enough to whittle down those wicked wenches’ fortunes until they can’t even pay off cheap desperadoes to do KAR’s bidding.

If it’s an “investment” in human trafficking through greedy contractors, Clare, that’s another big miss for you in California, well everything you’ve backed Vanguard in. Laws are passing to cut out government contracted caregiver and RN agencies altogether, with pilot programs in effect this year.

Meantime, guess what? We just got authorized for daily RN services to avoid the sort of inappropriate police incident that occurred on January 2nd.

Timing is everything! When I pulled up to the supermarket, I had planned to leave my son alone for 5 minutes while I went to the ladies room in the supermarket.

Suppose the cops came two minutes later than they did. I could have been arrested. Then who would be covering my son 24/7?

While I waited as the cops interrogated me, I wanted urgently to use the ladies room. Next time I’m not going to hold it in while enduring being interrogated! I’ll have THEM provide the protective supervision while I use the restroom.

Of course, there is nothing concrete that ties Nxivm et al. to the police responding to an anonymous complaint, or curious caregivers who falsely gave their names as Lauren and Keith, and the mysterious Jezebel who suddenly did not show up when she found out Frank was there.  Or Puto threatening me. It could be just serendipitous, opportunists, petty extortionists, but when you have been in the Nxivm wars and gone on record exposing them, you look over your shoulder.

And when someone is there lurking, you cannot help but wonder, who sent them.

  • Feels like someone has really bad intentions to ruin and exacerbate what is already a cross to bear

    {seizure conditions leave moms with no moments of complete peace i understand this one well myself]

    If I may You and your son will be kept in thoughts of ambrosia and holy basil {protections of spirit and soul cant hurt when intentions are best}

    Good Luck You already know in ways you and your son are closer because of this than in spite of ….

    Best to you and yours

    • Thank you, much, Chicky! Really do appreciate all the well wishers on this thread.

      And for the naysayers who doubt this incident is NX-related, here’s why I think it could be:

      1. At recent court hearings Keith has said through his counsel what he believes: “His enemies are responsible for these wrongful indictments and THERE ARE NOT THAT MANY OF THEM.” – KAR

      Keith believes, has always believed, if only he quashes his enemies he will never be held to account for anything. He SAID as much at court in handcuffs. He STILL THINKS only these “enemies” stand between him and his freedom to continue on with business as usual.

      2. The possible hands-on perpetrators of this harassment are could still be on the Bronfman/Salinas payroll and/or seeking their payoff in other or additional ways.

      In fact, some of NX’s attorneys such as Mr. Dennis Burke & Sandweg, well all 22 of them really, are at or near the climax of this shark feeding frenzy, competing to tear away the largest chunk of that Trust fund that’s going fast. Doing KAR’s bidding — destroying, discrediting those “enemies” —is still Clare’s mandate as well.

      3. The harassment is not new and prior incidents from the time Keeffe left, to the period KAR was hiding out in Mexico, to harassment by the “Silver Plume Co.” aka “Anima,” to immediately following my CBC interview taped last April before even Mack was indicted — were directly related to NX.

      4. This most recent harassment is, I believe, linked to a federally contracted caregiver agency which, as I’ve previously stated, sent caregivers mimicking NX character names and the set of characters Gibraltar sent were all very strange — attempting some sort of fraud entrapment or manipulating me into using the internet, etc. Frank Parlato witnessed these and other antics — of course there were witnesses prior to and in addition to him.

      5. This was all set in motion by NX and Mexi-NX at least months ago with these and other agencies who may have and still hope to see a payoff and have further possibly convinced other players — one of whom was caught and will be deported should I fully prosecute which I had hoped not to have to for Karmic reasons — they will be rewarded. Unfortunately, there might also be some perceived advantage to agencies or businesses to go along with or help. For example, some contractors prefer private pay to govt. or insurance rates. If my son’s services are terminated and insurance cancelled over my negligence, caregivers might have to be private paid. Three parties benefit, one, my son, loses. Without even having a Bronfman dime to look forward to.

      6. Somebody on here really does not like what I have to say on here. And it ain’t just Scott and Flowers as I’d hoped. As Dr. Festinger notes: they are trying to get under Heidi’s skin. And, I’ll add, they appear to be using information only a few are aware of to try to do so.

  • More examples of why those who don’t speak out against KAR might be smart, not cowards, even now with him in jail.

    • yes sir dennis, we’ve heard it plenty. if we know what’s best for us we won’t ‘speak out against KAR’ for fear we might suffer the wrath of dennis burke and clare, even with him in jail. message understood!

    • Yes, but on the other hand, if no one speaks out they will never be stopped or held accountable and the intimidation tactics they’ve thrived on for so long will be adopted by other evil-doers as a successful means to gain power and control in this supposedly “free” Country.

      • You are 100 per cent correct, Heidi. You do need to speak out and not allow this intimidation to silence you and I hope your courage is an inspiration to others who have stories they should be sharing but are too afraid to step into the light. Talking about the bad that has happened can also help to lighten the load as feelings get worked out and anger is released. You seem to be speaking out in a healthy way.

  • I sympathize with Heidi’s situation and hope they find out who did this.

    Though I don’t believe NXIVM is behind this act.

    Keith and Clare have bigger things on their mind (like going to prison) and I don’t see how anybody thinks that Keith is getting gratification by harassing Heidi and her son at this moment in time when he’s in a prison cell.

    Heidi’s not even on the witness list against him (as far as I know) so I don’t see how Keith would be fixating on Heidi right now when there’s lots of other people who are lining up to actually testify against him.

    I doubt that Keith is even thinking about Heidi right now. He’s got other fish to fry at the moment.

    Sounds like it’s possibly other enemies of Heidi doing this, possibly somebody jealous of her.

    It doesn’t sound like NXIVM for the simple fact that Heidi’s just not a high priority for them right now since she’s not really involved in their trial directly.

    Plus Nexians know they’re being ‘watched’ right now (by law enforcement) and I doubt that Clare would jeopardize her home detention and risk going to prison by being involved in these illegal things. There’s no logic to it.

    You can’t pin everything on NXIVM.

    I just think that Heidi is jumping to conclusions about the source of these things.

    Bunny? Bunny Way?

  • Heidi , im so sorry you and your family are going thru this shit. Stay strong…Karma is a bitch… it will for sure turn your way soon.

  • Heidi, so sorry you have to go through this crap. NXIVM was constantly calling the police on John Tighe.

    Raniere and his goons hate being exposed. It appears your posting has gotten to Raniere and Bronfman. Now, they are attempting to handle you as they have those who dare speak the truth about them. Fake reports, attempts to get people arrested, filing fake lawsuits are right out of NXIVMS playbook.

  • A few comments and questions for Heidi:

    1.You don’t need a “business card,” police officers have nametags and badge numbers to identify them;

    2. Have you sued the police for an illegal search of your home? After all, it been almost 3 weeks since this happened;

    3. How did the police get inside your home?

    4. The report is not readable.

    5. Which government workers involved in this case aren’t being paid?

    6. Your hair looks blonde to me in the photo, and the report said blonde OR strawberry blonde. Hair doesn’t have to be bleach white to be considered blonde.

    7. Who harassed you before, and why are you so sure you know who is behind the latest harassment?

  • I’m glad it worked out for you and your son, since it definitely could have been far worse.
    It’s good that local law enforcement is now aware of false complaints being lodged against you, as it should certainly impact how they handle any such future complaints.
    I wish you or Frank would have left out what county you are currently located. No need to make it easier for harassers. Ounce of prevention, and all that.
    Wish safety and security for you and your family.

    • That’s the way I’m trying to look at it, Just. At least now the new local police are aware we are being harassed and can help. This isn’t Mexico, not yet anyway, I hope. Trouble is what if we have a real problem and the cops think it’s another wolf crier and don’t respond? Say I had a heart attack in the restroom and it’s called in as “neglect” so it’s ignored as harassment but my son really needs help?

      I think about who else might have needed police help over that 30 minutes or so at least 4 cops were preoccupied with this hoax, too.

      • If you had had a heart attack or other medical emergency , how would that have affected this fake neglect claim? Sorry, but I’m not following the reasoning here.

        What difference would an actually real emergency have had on the fake negligence accusation? Whatever authorities that are required to investigate that negligence claim (and I’m sure it would not be the police department) would still be required to investigate before they could charge you with any crime. It’s not a crime to suffer from a medical emergency.

      • After my last comment, I thought of something else. If the caller in another county knew your location, they could have some type of GPS tracker on your vehicle, or they could be tracking you through your cellphone. Those are actual possibilities, and this type of tracking technology is readily available these days.

  • Keith et al learned well from Scientology.
    Folks, we neef to rid ourselves of this kind of folk.
    I pray justice is done.
    If even one skates then we must turn our backs on them, making them outcasts who live out their lives in misery.

  • Wow, that’s very scary stuff, Heidi. Someone is sure going to great lengths to harass you and intimidate you.
    Do you have any idea how the police were able to track you down, in a mall parking lot, within 10 minutes of this report being called in?

    • I can only guess that we were followed by the “anonymous caller” who gave the police our location, Flowers. I didn’t notice if we were but how else? We were at least 45 minutes from the County the police said the call originated from that we had not been in that day, though. Maybe the report is inaccurate.

      • But if you were followed by the anonymous caller, the tip could not have been called in from a different county, and they would have seen your hair colour.
        There would need to be at least 2 people then- one phoning the tip in, and the other one spying on you to give the police your location.

        You might be able to request this information from the police department, if it is considered evidence in a possible harassment case against you , the police should provide it.

  • Heidi, I am so sorry that you and your son had to go through this kind of incident. This is real intimidation and harassment using the most important person in your life as a pawn. They’ve taken advantage knowing you care for your disabled son. The timing also correlates with your increased presence on FR. It’s disheartening the police just searched your home without either just cause or the proper paperwork. Please take good care of yourself and watch your back. You are a strong woman but everyone has a breaking point. This is going on irl while people here are commenting about whether or not your the real Heidi Hutchinson and, if you are, are the stories you tell true. That makes me very angry. You and your son deserve to live in peace.

  • Heidi – No doubt it was NXIVM related harassment. Could it also have been a fishing expedition to find out where you have relocated to? I’m so sorry that your son and yourself have been through this continuous hounding and find it truly disturbing about the caregivers.

    • Our new address was on the police report and was told to the police by the “anonymous”
      caller, I suppose. Very few are aware of the address as I use a PO box, don’t give it out, etc.

      Doubt it’s a “fishing expedition.” Far too coordinated between the 2 counties, APS, the police etc.

      Whatever or whomever it was it was most definitely not what it portends to be — a stranger did not witness me (or a person NOT matching my description per the report) neglecting my son in LA County at 3:20 PM when we were 45 minutes from any place in LA County at 3:30ish.

      Even the cops, at least the two in the parking lot, quickly realized it was all bullshit and didn’t want to be part of it, give me an incident report #, cards etc. and I wasn’t about to impolitely write down their names while they very politely, gingerly rolled back and were rather apologetic, in fact.

      Thank God we’re not in Albany with Roger Kirsopp & co. either. Least doesn’t look that way so far.

      I did bring my son in to the station to meet everyone and let dispatch know what’s going on. And I am going to re-activate our home security system as they recommend in case these clowns resort to the same antics that went on in LA — Puto, et al —which were reported and were being investigated and over which restraining orders were granted against one person who was caught in the act — who is, btw, a legal Mexican immigrant but it is unknown if or how affiliated with NX.

      Once they already know your address the only way to deal with them is openly with the police.

      While I would like to help stop any corruption, no, I am not suing the police. We rely and depend on them and I, for one, refuse to believe they are all corrupt. Who knows what lie they were told by this caller, so I’m kinda glad they saw for themselves we have nothing to hide. Thank God the place was pretty clean, etc. No half a million in small unmarked dollars and pesos under my bed, or unregistered weapon or pills or torture manuals or child porn or my son left alone, either.

      To answer a few of your questions and thank you so much for all your supportive statements. I’m putting it out there in hopes to put an end to this harassment by putting a swift and sure end to the people I believe are ultimately behind it and have been over many years — the KAR, Bronfman/Salinas crime syndicates.

  • Welcome to the Mexican attack playbook:

    It’s almost always law enforcement;
    It’s almost always an alleged “crime”;
    It’s always brute force;
    Brute Force is all they know how to do;
    “framing” others, and of course, threatening to bring a legal case in Mexico and have you extradited.
    NXIVM and associates use the Mexican attack playbook.

    As has been covered in detail, here, Burke works for his new Mexican handlers.
    They hired him because of his knowledge of law enforcement procedures and for other reasons;
    he knows how to work on this kind of stuff.

    • Yes, I do believe Burke is behind it. I believe he and Sandweg and Burke’s other partners in Frontier and GSIS — Burke’s companies being paid to perform PI, immigration and other “services” for Bronfman-Salinas-Raniere — are behind much of the harassment and intimidation of NX “enemies” in recent years including cyber-stalking. As I’ve mentioned before, I once thought I was being tailed by a Secret Service vehicle last Spring before KAR’s indictment which made NO sense until Mark Sullivan showed up at KAR’s bail hearing. Catherine Oxenberg was the only person who believed me, even Frank was skeptical that it wasn’t my ex trying to spook me at that point. Which is why I am so grateful and relieved Peterson came forward — even though now I’m skeptical that it’s a “democrat” conspiracy Peterson posits — not just a couple of corrupt attorneys and disgraced ex-public servants like Burke & Sullivan (Columbian hooker scandle public servant resignee) out to bill-up the Bronfman and Salinas Jr.’s. Trusts and get their own revenge on Uncle Sam for ousting them. But, you never know. And Peterson certainly knows more about that than the rest of us. Worrisome, too, that the MAGA’s Peterson is depending on may soon be leaderless. (Don’t shoot the messenger but this furlough or govt. closure will likely Trump the Presidency in 2020 if not sooner.)

      • Heidi, you say you think Dennis Burke could be responsible for this harassment. What advantage would Burke gain from harassing you? I don’t understand how doing something like this could help Burke. Are you saying that you have information that Burke is worried about?
