Roger Stone Will Appear in “The Lost Women of Nxivm’ on Investigation Discovery; Says ‘If Raniere Said, “Kill,” I Think They Would Have Killed!’

Roget Stone
Roger Stone appears in ‘The Lost Women of Nxivm”, which airs on Investigation Discovery on Sunday at 9 pm ET/ 8 CT/ 9 PT.
The Lost Women is a film on which I served as Coordinating Producer, and follows my investigation into the strange and suspicious deaths or disappearance of four women associated with Nxivm leader Keith Raniere.
Stone was formerly a consultant for Nxivm.

During the filming, I asked Stone, “You saw the followers and you saw Raniere. Did you ever get the sense, that kind of intuitive sense that he might have been willing to do something criminal like murder?”

Stone replied, “I did meet Raniere one time. And he kind of reminded me of Charles Manson. In the sense that the inner circle was just completely obsequious. Whatever Keith wanted, whatever he said. He said, “kill,” I think they would have killed. That’s why when the woman disappeared in Alaska [Kristin Snyder], it crossed my mind that there may have been foul play. I did think he was evil. But I thought he was just financially corrupt. It turned out to be far worse than I ever thought it would be.”
The press release for ‘The Lost Women of Nxivm’ says in part, “former NXIVM publicist turned investigative journalist Frank Parlato, who first revealed that NXIVM was branding women, takes a deep dive to answer the questions surrounding the tragic deaths and mysterious disappearances of four women who all had connections to NXIVM and Raniere himself.

“With exclusive access to members of Raniere’s former inner circle, some speaking for the first time and others who remain anonymous for their safety, Parlato leads viewers through a two-hour investigation that questions if there is more to this sadistic story. The provocative new special, THE LOST WOMEN OF NXIVM, premieres Sunday, December 8 at 9/8c, only on Investigation Discovery (ID)….”

The four ‘lost’ women are:

  1. Gina Hutchinson, 33, found dead in Woodstock NY, an apparent suicide.
  2. Kristin Snyder, 35, last seen in Anchorage Alaska being ejected from a Nxivm Intensive.
  3. Barbara Jeske, 63, died in Clifton Park, ostensibly from brain cancer; was under the care of Keith Raniere and Brandon Porter.
  4. Pamela Cafritz, 57, died in Clifton Park, ostensibly from renal cancer; was under the care of Keith Raniere and Brandon Porter.
Roger Stone appears in ‘The Lost Women of Nxivm’. He served as a consultant for Nxivm and was responsible for my being hired by Nxivm as a consultant and publicist.
Stone, who is credited for bringing Donald Trump into politics, says he worked as a consultant for Nxivm starting in 2006. He gives his view of the creepy cult and its notorious leader Keith Raniere.
Among Stone’s comments in the film, he says,

“I was hired by NXIVM in 2006. I lasted about 4 months. Raniere had like a burning intensity. But at the same time, he was arrogant, he was haughty, he was a know it all. He liked to pontificate. He didn’t want to hear what anybody else had to say. I did think he was evil. But I thought he was just financially corrupt. I specifically remember that he got $66 million dollars from the Bronfman sisters’ trust fund…

“I think it was interesting that when women were admitted to this secret circle of the cult, they were required to give blackmail material in case they ever got inklings of leaving the cult. So again, a person who is capable of that is capable of anything.

“I worked for them for maybe 4 months. They were out of touch with the way things really worked. And they wanted to start buying politicians. They knew the system was rigged. They are not wrong about that. But they didn’t understand how it was set up. I met the Bronfman sisters. I met several other trust fund children, and I could see, that they were being milked. And that they were footing the bill for a lifestyle of the circle of people surrounding Keith Raniere.

Stone is one of the numerous people interviewed in the film. These include:
  1. Brendan Lyons, senior investigative editor, Albany Times Union
  2. Rick Ross, cult expert
  3. Neil Glazer, attorney for victims of Nxivm
  4. Dr. Jana Lalich, an expert on cults
  5. Joe O’Hara, a former consultant for Nxivm
  6. Omar Rosales, author and former member of Nxivm
  7. Susan Dones, a former member
  8. Heidi Clifford, spouse of Kristin Snyder
  9. Heidi Hutchinson, sister of Gina Hutchinson
  10. Angela Ucci, a former member
  11. Cynthia Libratore, sister of Barbara Jeske
  12. A DOS woman [in silhouette to shield her identity]
  13. An inner circle member who had cancer and survived [her identity is concealed]
  14. Kristin Keeffe, former member and mother of one of Raniere’s children
  15. Lieutenant Alan Nickel, Seward Police
  16. Kenny Powers, a friend of Snyder’s involved in the search for her
  17. Michael and Sherry Miller of Miller’s Landing, where Snyder’s truck was found
  18. Handwriting expert Beth Chrisman
  19. Ballistics expert Cynthia Bir.
  20. Harbor Master for Resurrection Bay, Norman Regis
  21. Kayak expert and expert of the waters of Resurrection Bay, Rick Brown
  22. Forensic scientist, Jason Kolowski, who tested hair samples of one of the cancer victims
  23. And others.
Stone is not the only one who thinks the deaths of the women could be criminal.

  • After reading the press release for “The Lost Women of Nxivm”, I am very intrigued to watch this exposé; And learn of the new evidence linking Keith Raniere’s hands to women’s deaths. The deaths of each woman are fairly suspicious. These women deserve to have their deaths investigated and stories told to the world.

  • To President Trump:
    The Democrats will not stop until they destroy you and your whole family.

    Pardon Roger Stone Now!
    Pardon Julian Assange Now!
    Pardon Edward Snowden Now!

    The Left-wing Democrats intend to turn American politics into a blood sport.

    • Assange and Stone don’t need a pardon. Stone will win an appeal and get a tremendous amount of money in a civil suit. Snowdon is deep state and if he does not suicide himself will be executed for treason.

    • Shadowstate,

      Stone and Snowden I agree with 100%!

      Donald Trump pardon Assange? LMAO. Monkeys are going to fly out your ass before Trump pardons Assange.
      However, Shadow you can contact Assange in Belmarsh prison. Seriously, you can write a letter to him. His prison ID number and address are on the web. It’s something to do and you have nothing to lose because nobody will know.

      • NXIVM’s current corporate counsel is the firm of former (Bush administration) Attorney General John Ashcroft. In the early days they called on people like D’Amato and Bruno (then the NY State Senate Republican Majority Leader).

        There aren’t actually any simple partisan generalizations to be made, though Raniere’s Republican upbringing and objectivitist-libertarian leanings (and the status quo in Albany when NXIVM was fighting its first battles, during the Pataki administration) seem to have lead to him calling on power and influence brokers mostly on the right ideologically, in contrast to what people seem to tend to mistakenly assume about such a cult.

        • Hey slick put down the booze bottle. You sound as drunk as Pelosi and Biden. Your democrap friends the Bronfmans should cut off your hootch supply.

          • Kid, you might want to check the reality – all of NXIVM’s dirty Republican connections that I cited are a matter of record. And it was the campaign fund of Bruno, who was later charged with corruption, to which the Bronfman sisters made their largest donations. But I’ll at least be objective, and intellectually honest, and admit that probably had about as much to with who was in power at the time NXIVM was seeking access and influence, as anything partisan.

            And you might want to consider that maybe your masters aren’t telling you the truth.
            That’s what cultists have to face up to – at least those who manage to break free.

  • Frank, do you think it’s possible because Keith and company possesd dead bodies he may actually be a necrophiliac?

  • I don’t put these four women in the same category. Two of them, Snyder and Hutchinson, were much more victims than (if at all) perps, whereas Jeske and Cafritz were much more perps than victims.
