Heidi Hutchinson – Her Son Taken Away – Makes Plea For Help

Editor’s Note: Heidi Hutchinson believes that Nxivm is still after her despite Keith Raniere being convicted. Her sister, Gina, was [statutorily] raped by Raniere when she was around 14. She died when she was in her 30s. Her death was ruled a suicide.

Heidi was the first to expose to the media [through Jim Odato for the Albany Times Union] that Raniere is a pedophile, even though numerous women knew of his predilections. Many people thought that the story would lead to Raniere’s arrest. It did not.

For years, Heidi has cared for her disabled son, but a recent court order removed her from the house. She cannot see her son. She suspects that the sinister hand of Nxivm [in the US and in Mexico] is involved in this matter and is out to destroy her. She asked me to publish this post and I agreed to do so without any further comment. Please feel free to comment and ask Heidi any questions or offer your support. I am certain she will respond.

By Heidi Hutchinson

It goes far beyond “spying” — as I well know and Frank (and others) know I well know.

Nxivm uses the information collected to harass, “gaslight,” frame, malign, manipulate, suborn, bribe, extort, impoverish, silence and harm in the most trenchant manner possible, not only perceived enemies but individuals — including “friends” and family members — who can be used to destroy perceived enemies.

All of which may well have something to do with why I am currently living out of a suitcase in a motel after being restrained from residing with (nay, coming within 200 yards of) and caring for my disabled son — including having no contact with any person or entity responsible for managing his care including his finances.

And this despite the fact that I have done an excellent job as often his sole care provider, with often no compensation and not spent more than a week in total apart from him — he requires 24/7 protective supervision by a close family member or certified LVN to administer emergency seizure medication — in over six years. And despite the fact that in my absence, he is being put at risk and not receiving the care required under State and Federal law and long-standing court orders.

Among the many very strange, sudden obstacles I have faced in an ardent effort to return home to protect my son, foremost, is a transfer of my own inheritance funds held in Trust in another state, the power of attorney holder has been trying to direct deposit into my accounts for nearly two weeks now without success for me to retain counsel to begin to fight this on anything close to an equal footing.

I am grateful for the support of a few honest, compassionate friends, family and acquaintances who understand what I and my son are up against — and I am more determined than ever to NIX NXIVM off the face of the planet it and to see its ilk likewise defeated if not thoroughly destroyed.

  • Heidi, I know it is long time no chat, but I haven’t been coming around much since the trolls took over.
    I am very sorry to see you having a hard time. I hope this is all straightened out for you quickly, and am wishing you all the best.

    • You’re back, what a nice surprise.

      You’re the same girl who — while attending an 11 day intensive — allowed a NXIVM proctor to back you into a corner and bully you, while giving you a panic attack, lol.

      Truth be told, I don’t think anybody missed you. 🙂

      I bid you a nice day, though.

      • Funny how you can’t seem to manage to stick to the truth when you make your weak, witless attempts to bully people. Get help.

  • What a LET DOWN this thread has become, lol.

    Frank said that Heidi would be here giving responses to our questions.

    Yet not a single FACT has been provided to indicate WHY a restraining order was issued or WHO she’s fighting against in court.

    Heidi is still M.I.A.

    We haven’t heard a peep.

    If a court issued a restraining order taking away custody from a parent, it means there’s MUCH MORE to this story than Heidi’s implying.

    I can’t even speculate as to what that might be.

    But rest assured, there IS something which Heidi isn’t telling us and it’s not fair for Frank to promise that we’d get our questions answered IF he already knows that Heidi has no intention of answering our questions.

    Come on Frank, you’re the one who posted this on a public blog.

    It’s not as if we’re prying, lol. You announced it to the world and promised answers. You have a duty to your loyal readers to respond, Frank.

    I can promise you that Jesus Christ isn’t happy with your behavior, Frank. Jesus doesn’t like guys who dangle shit but then don’t deliver.

    • “Jesus doesn’t like guys who dangle shit but then don’t deliver”, Bangkok.

      Bangkok I bet your shower buddies feel the same way…. 😉

    • Bangkok, have you recently found religion?….you do seem to be using curse words with slightly less frequency than you did earlier.
      I’m not too surprised, since you do seem like the type to join the evangelical crazies….

  • This post seems awfully exploitive. Frank, I appreciate that you have been able to uncover huge injustices by not silencing accusations that seem too over the top to be true. That method was a major contributor, if not the main contributor, to the downfall of Nexium and KAR. But it also seems pretty clear that Heidi is mentally unwell and that this is the likely reason for the loss of access to her child. If you truely believe there is more to it and that she is being treated unfairly by the system, then I hope you will do due diligence as a journalist and uncover what is going on. In the absence of that, it reads as rather exploitive of a woman who has both been harmed by Nx as well as having significant mental health challenges.

    I say this as someone who feels they were completely abused by the NY State family court system. I think it is an awful and abusive system that doesn’t actually care about families. I don’t object because I’m someone who blindly believes in the system. I think family court frequently gets it wrong. It’s a brutal process no matter your culpability.

    But come on Frank, is giving Heidi this platform helping her or is it contributing to a way of thinking that’s not entirely in touch w reality. And does it advance your agenda of telling the truth and taking down bad guys, or is it essentially click bait that takes advantage of sensationalism about a real family’s ugly struggles because the mom’s sister was caught up in ugly BS w KAR. I think it’s likely that KAR’s actions contributed to Heidi’s mental health. But I also think giving her a platform is not that different than publishing the collateral of the DOS women. You have pictures of DOS pussies, but you don’t publish them. If you did, surely you’d get a lot of hits. Is this really that different?

  • Heidi. You said that “A little bit of paranoia is a good thing”.

    Get a shrink and check on your husband (or ex).

  • Heidi,

    Sometime ago you mentioned that the police stopped you to perform a wellness check..You stated you believe NXIVM initiated the check…..

    My guess is that your ex husband at the bequest or advice of his attorney contacted the authorities. I believe at the root of your present predicament is your ex husband.

    1. You need legal council.

    2. You need to meet with a family therapist or psychologist or psychiatst if you do not have one so you can have a professional affirm your sanity.

    My guess is that your ex husband is attempting to take custody of your child. Probably in attempt to avoid paying child support to you. What your are going through unfortunately is not that unusual.

    3. You should contact family and or friends to support you in this emotional time.

    My wife has seen cases similar to this before. It’s easier said then done but try to stay strong, calm, and focused on presenting the best face you can in regards to the adversity you are now facing.

    You have made it through hell before. You can do it again. I wish you and your son the best !!!

    • Nice Guy, This is the first thing that I thought too, regarding when Heidi was approached by police based on an anonymous caller’s report . Attaining legal counsel and getting a family therapist or psychiatrist involved is what I would recommend as well. Thanks for mentioning this!

  • Heidi:

    I am so very sorry for what has happened to you and your son.
    Everyone knows that in 99.99% of all cases the best caretaker for a child is a parent, either the mother or the father.
    I know that you love your son very much.

    If you believe that government action has been taken against you or your son because of your public opposition to NXIVM and you have a hard time raising funds to present your case in a civil court, you might try to contact the FBI.
    For too long the goblins and gargoyles of NXIVM have abused the legal system to persecute their enemies.
    Filing frivolous law suits against ex-girlfriends or defectors from the cult.
    Trying to bring bogus criminal charges against former employees.
    Hacking into computers of NXIVM’s critics.
    As recently as 2017 Clare Bronfman had flown to Vancouver to file bogus criminal charges against Sarah Edmondson claiming that she had “stolen” blackmail material which NXIVM had collected against the DOS sex slaves.
    NXIVM is still lurking around Brooklyn, Saratoga and Mexico awaiting the first opportunity to rebuild.
    Heidi, you are right.
    NXIVM and its Flying Monkeys must be destroyed.

    Heidi, I will be hoping and praying for you.

  • Heidi,
    Sorry to hear that you are going through this.
    Are you saying that your ex-husband (your son’s father) is the one behind the restraining order? Do you think your ex is being influenced by NXIVM in some way?

  • Oops, accidentally posted this a minute ago with cleared cookies (name erased). Posting again with name entered.

    What does Heidi’s legal situation (restraining order) have to do with NXIVM?

    What does Heidi’s situation have to do with fighting against NXIVM’s legal team?

    I seriously doubt that NXIVM related attorneys (or Arizona Mafia Attorneys) are the people lining up in court against her, since they wouldn’t have any standing to do that over a family matter like this.

    You purposely omitted lots of facts and are basically smearing NXIVM without even a modicum of proof that they are involved.

    If I had to guess, it sounds like the type of legal fight that an ex husband might initiate.

    …If a ‘court’ issues a restraining order against a parent, that’s not something done lightly or on a whim. They only do that when there’s reasonable proof of something which they don’t approve of.

    The court has the child’s best interests at heart and if Heidi doesn’t wish to tell us why she was issued a restraining order or who she is fighting in this matter (probably not NXIVM attorneys) then what’s the connection to NXIVM?

    Are we supposed to just blindly support Heidi’s legal quest without knowing ANY details?

    If so, then why did you even post this on a public blog?

  • if you are still in the revenge crosshairs of Nxivm or its related figures, once and for all understand how and where Nxivm/Bronfman’s weaponized legal and corrupt government agenda is made possible. There’re two words to understand:

    1. Arizona
    2. Mafia

    It’s real and paid for — not a myth.

    Watch for Bangkok or one of many aliases to deny it. They still monitor this blog every day.

    • LOL that the Bangkok bogus rumor is still circulating.

      Half of my posts over the past year have said stuff like:

      1) Keith has a flaccid pecker and is a smelly fat fuck.

      2) Clare is an ugly mule.

      3) Salinas is a corrupt asshole and Emi’s wife is a Polish slut.

      Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that a supporter of NXIVM wouldn’t say shit like that, lol.

      But then again, you’re probably a Walmart employee and not the most logical of people. 🙂

      I bid you a nice day.

      • If your argument is that you can’t possibly be Dennis Burke because you said those things, it’s not much of an argument.

        It’s been well established over time that Burke stabs his friends and colleagues in the back, and is a uncaring, mercenary liar.

        “Dennis Burke came up to my house and he said, ‘No, none of them guns killed Brian. None of them’.” — Josephine Terry, mother of Brian Terry, the border agent killed in the Obama-era Fast and Furious Gun Running scandal (conducted under former U.S. Attorney Dennis K. Burke)

  • I apologize but I’m unfamiliar with Heidi’s story; therefore, the editor’s note was helpful…

    Heidi, WHO petitioned and WHAT reason was given for your removal of caregiving and 200 ft injunction? Courts don’t arbitrarily order, even temporarily, such a course of action without evidence or opportunity to respond legally. File your response, sans emotion. (Compartmentalization is one of the hardest tasks to master.) And if you are truly committed to his best interests, persevere!!!

    This quote has always renewed my spirit and I sincerely hope it helps you too!

    “He failed in business in ’31. He was defeated for state legislator in ’32. He tried another business in ’33. It failed. His fiancee died in ’35. He had a nervous breakdown in ’36. In ’43 he ran for congress and was defeated. He tried again in ’48 and was defeated again. He tried running for the Senate in ’55. He lost.The next year he ran for Vice President and lost. In ’59, he ran for the Senate again and was defeated. In 1860, the man who signed his name A. Lincoln was elected the 16th President of the United States. The difference between history’s boldest accomplishments and its most staggering failures is often, simply, the diligent will to persevere.”

  • The only real solution I can think of to your problem is to go to the bible and grab a hold of one of His promises and stand on it with your whole heart. This is the only thing that has worked for me. People will scoff at you like they did at me but you will have the victory and they will be left scratching their heads and wondering how that happened. Isaiah 54 verse 17 comes to mind first…”No weapon formed against thee will prosper; and every tongue that rises against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.” Read 2 Chronicles chapter 20. The people of Judah don’t know what to do about the great multitude of armies gathered against them but they kept their eyes on the Lord God. They had an incredible victory the next day. This has proved out in my life. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing this.

  • Heidi

    We need more of the story. Protective services does not remove a child without investigation or cause. Explain more of the details if you want our support.

    What are the stated reasons for the restraining order?
    What evidence was presented?
    What counter arguments did you present?
    What rights to defense did you have?
    Do you have problems such as alcoholism that need treatment and influence your behavior toward your son?
    Exactly how was Nxivm involved to influence the state government against you?

    You deserve support but you need to be accountable about your own actions that could have led to the restraining order.

    Finally, I wish you the best in getting the help you need to survive this. You are intelligent, compassionate and gifted.

  • Exactly how is Nxivm involved in your loss of custody over your son?
    Is he over 21 and has become a ward of the state?
    A distance of 200ft implies an Order of Protection has been issued by a court to protect your son from harm.If your son is a minor CPS would be involved.

    There is a lot to this story that is missing? Without details, I cannot comment.

    Are you saying Nxivm has influence over the court of California?

    • Orders of protection can be granted just upon a false police report – with no defenses presented. I know people who have been “set up” this way. Heidi, weren’t you approached in a parking lot some time ago, by law enforcement, with your son? There was something peculiar about the circumstances – I am going to look for the article, which was posted here.

      Please hang in there. This will pass. If you want to talk, ask Frank for my number.

  • I am so very sorry to hear this news Heidi. If there is anything we can do, please tell us how we can help.

  • Heidi I’m so sorry your going through this nightmare. All I can offer is my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully there is a regular reader of this report that can provide something tangible. God bless.

  • Very interesting, although I don’t like that no compensation for caring for your disabled son is being brought up as I don’t believe you should be compensated for that???

    • California child services suck and cases are handled even worse. I have watched the unimaginable happen especially in San Diego and Riverside Counties. So I won’t even ask how or why this has happened. Also do you have a lawyer? You can’t fight this without one.

      Heidi sending you lots of good positive energy. As for your trust money can you get an overnight check, venmo, paypal?

    • Yes, that part sounded odd to me too, Anonymous. But then I thought that maybe she meant that she doesn’t get any help? From her son’s father…? Not clear. She sounds like a loving mother so I hope it’s something like that.
