Kristin Keeffe appears in the Lost Women of Nxivm

On Sunday at 9:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pm Central, Investigation Discovery [ID] will premiere the explosive two-hour special, “The Lost Women of NXIVM.

Today ID has released seven clips from the upcoming film.

According to ID, “The special follows NXIVM publicist turned journalist Frank Parlato as he investigates 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. ”

Let’s look at these seven clips to help get an idea of what the film will be about.

1 Kenny Powers

This 1:15 minute clip is a portion of my interview with Kenny Powers, a dear friend of Kristin Snyder’s, who spent time with her during the last week before she disappeared and who helped coordinate the search for her when she went missing. Powers is an attorney, formerly a prosecutor for the State of Alaska, and an expert in survival. He taught Kristin Snyder her survival skills.


2 Hair Sample of Cancer Woman

This 48 second clip is from the point in the film where I get the hair sample from a cancer survivor who lived with Keith Raniere. The woman’s voice is altered to a lower pitch.

3 Call with Forensic Scientist on Hair Sample and Cancer

In this 1:39 second clip, I call forensic scientist Jason Kolowski to get info on the validity of hair sample testing.

4 Susan Dones

In this one minute clip, I interview Susan Dones, who talks about Keith’s attitude about being lesbian.

5 Susan Dones 2

In this 1:09 minute clip, Susan Dones and I watch the video of Keith saying “I’ve had people killed because of my beliefs.”

  • Funny Kristen Keeffe thinks she is the #1 whistleblower.

    She was so busy not only running for her own life but she was Raniere’s #1 goon and helped him commit a lot of crimes. She was also hiding from the FEDs herself.

    Had she gone when she first left and talked about the tax evasion, money laundering and the set up to have people killed in Mexico that Raniere told her about, DOS would have never gotten off the ground.

  • It is distinctly odd to hear Keeffe opine that she thinks that Kristin Snyder is alive. In fact, what that sounded like to me is that Kristin Keeffe is living in a dreamworld of emotional and mental disorganization, as a result of her many, many years with Raniere and his “intimates.”

    What possible basis does Keeffe have to come to that kind of a conclusion? I have watched this particular clip many times now. I see something entirely different coming out of her face than what she says. Her voice and manner of speaking these words tells me more about Kristin Keeffe than it does about Kristin Snyder.

      • Of course, shadowstate 1958. Kristin was harmed, in front of a group being run by Raniere’s supposed consultation and by Nancy Salzman’s (so-titled) leadership. Then Kristin was ejected from the Executive Success Program’s Anchorage intensive at the Westmark Hotel.

        We have multiple names of characters in the cast, surrounding the circumstances of Kristin’s disappearance, from the Anchorage intensive, when she was last seen, being driven from the Westmark’s parking lot. There is even a set of donation trails to sniff. Like a Clare Bronfman rottweiler who never bathed.

        Kristin Snyder’s family and friends have spoken of her being stable, smart, fun, reliable. She was described as well as being one who wanted success, both professionally and in a broader sense. Some who knew her her best have said that exposure to the expensive indoctrinations of ESP training appeared to trouble Kristin. You can see how this indoctrination swept up her life so swiftly.

        Yes “indoctrination” is my choice of noun for what Raniere and Salzman the eldest were selling with help from their lieutenants, sergeants and on down the slave structure/stricture.

        Again we’re seeing similarly, would that it wouldn’t be so, but if wishes were horses… eh, Shadowstate?

        Nothing says “I’ll be right back” like being escorted away by the goddamned Inmates of the Asylum of Salzman and Raniere. Kristin was isolated and then she vanished. That was after she kept trying to tell fanatics what her experiences with Raniere had been, their celibate turd, the guy most of them had screwed or been screwed by, depending on which ways you look at it.

        How about we look at it every which way? Mutual coindependent and individualized responsibilities for saying “yes” to any of this. Is a target responsible for being a target? Not when the target is underage, a child, but what do we say when a competent-appearing adult has been deceived and harmed by an entire cult?

        Was Kristin Snyder a target for the Raniere group, every step of the way? That is, until the group decided that Kristin was a problem? Did brutes pulverize a monarch butterfly of a young woman?

        Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten, Linda Kasabian, Squeaky Fromme, ESP/ Raniere-style: come out, come out wherever, whoever, whatever you are. Face the music before the music becomes too loud. Raniere is not coming back. The good word has been broken already, long time ago.

        • Was Kristin Snyder a target for the Raniere group, every step of the way?

          Yes. They sunk their teeth into her and pawed her with razor-sharp claws. And when their master plan was devised, they went in for the kill.

          I am sorry but I was out Christmas shopping last night trying to figure out what to buy my 18 year old nephews.
          Cash gifts are so inappropriate.
          But I did answer your comment as best I could.

  • Frank, I can’t wait.

    But I want you to know ….you have revived the lost art of investigative journalism. This is what news and media and reporters use to do.

    I am truly, truly impressed with your talent and wish you all the success in the world.

    This site is now my most favorite.

  • You may need more expert toxicology evaluation re: the high Barium and Bismuth levels found in the hair sample.

    Barium is commonly used orally and by enema for x-ray imaging of the digestive system. Bismuth is used in Pepto Bismol and Kaopectate for treating upset stomach. Both are toxic in elemental form, but neither are known carcinogens — thus not the likely cause for her cancer – and possibly even residual from her diagnosis and treatment. More specific expert analysis would be helpful.

    Your tenacity has opened truth and ended much suffering – yet I suspect Raniere’s darkest depravities have yet to be seen. Looking forward to the documentary Sunday – and I sincerely hope it brings increased recognition, interest and support for your work.

    Well done, sir.

    • I agree, Swedeworld–KAR’s darkest depravities have yet to be seen. I just have a hunch. The look in his eyes is nasty.

  • Thank you Frank for all the work you have done in bringing justice and punishment to NXIVM criminals. Keith was a liar for sure, but I don’t think he was lying about having killed for his belief. It rang true when he said it and it I hope that you can prove this. God Bless you.
