Updated: Second Leaked Kristin Snyder Documents – List of Attendees to Snyder’s Anchorage First Intensive

An anti-Nxivm “Deep Throat” leaked to us the Nxivm file on Kristin Snyder.

As readers know, Snyder was ejected from a 16-day Nxivm intensive in Anchorage, Alaska on Feb 6, 2003, the 12th day of the intensive.

She had been claiming that Nxivm founder Keith Raniere had gotten her pregnant.

This ran afoul of the teachings and the image of Raniere who was reputed to be celibate. It was further troubling because Snyder was a lesbian. She had also been in Albany NY where Raniere lived several weeks earlier.

The intensive Snyder was thrown out of – and never seen again – was not her first.

She had previously attended a Nxivm intensive in Anchorage from Nov. 2- 17.

Frank Report has a copy of the list of attendees of that intensive. [See below]

This intensive was well attended and Susan Dones tells us that during the first five days of the intensive, Nancy Salzman was the head trainer. She also tells us that Salzman went manic when one of the students questioned her teachings and mentioned her daughters.

Salzman’s angry reaction showed her to be not in control unlike what she taught students.  Susan thinks this may be why there were fewer students at the second intensive, the one Kristin disappeared from.

Let us take a look at the people there. What’s interesting also is that next to each name is their coach.

Hi Frank, “The Lost Women of NXIVM” was excellent. I have a question about Kristin’s handwriting analysis. Didn’t you have her diary from her family to analyze? Or was the analysis done before you connected with the Snyders?

as a news reporter, why is it OK to share the information of civilians? Why do we need to know their addresses?

Anonymous you made an important observation and responsible posted….

…However there is no real damage or danger….

…..The phone numbers are 17 years old and most likely all have changed. The addresses have most likely changed as well and can easily be looked up via the glorious internet. Anyone’s phone number can be purchased for a sum.

It’s not like Frank posted their social security numbers.

Several names that recur throughout the course of the NXIVM saga.
Kathy Russell is the real surprise.
Maybe that’s why Nancy Salzman is so friendly with Kathy Russell when everyone else downgrades and mistreats her.

Yes, Kathy Russell isn’t up for much, if any prison time, either. During trial, testimony indicated Russell’s go-fer status, apparently her accountant work included shifting illegal documents and sums of money. There was her cash rental of a Nxivm pad, paid in one yearly money dropoff. There was witness testimony about Russell being a threesome partner who didn’t mind if somebody was too young for her old lady parts. Ugh. Never mind Kathy’s ballerina sh*t.

Hopefully some non-swat team has been dogging her every footstep and recollecting on her every use of the fifth amendment, even about how much she weighed. She wants to do the limbo rock right under the radar, as if her only speciality was being a bore. But no, Kathy Russell smells fishy as hell, worse than a sardines barbecued in rawhide tortillas. Yikes, since she might slip away mostly unaccountable, as a money-fixer, as a purveyor of illegal documentation and as a pedo-scumbucket. All of this came up at Raniere’s trial. Meanwhile, Russell only copped to one charge of visa fraud re Loretta Garza and might get a year’s time and has kept a low profile.

Often it facilitated Russell’s Nxivm “bookkeeping” roles to be easy not to notice, an older lady in ladylike attire. Russell is only strangely noticeable behind closed doors, as an older sex cult jolly good fellow out of some surrealistic porn movie. But the scariest thing about Russell are those ballet classes and recitals of hers, at least in her fifties, wearing a tutu and trying to grande jeté her anorexic limbs around with a floor full of nine year-olds. Rod Serling would’ve had a blast featuring Kathy Russell.

It’s funny you just mentioned Rod Serling.
I just mentioned in “The Faces of NXIVM” story how Marie White’s NXIVM pictures could have been featured on an episode of Rod Serling’s old TV show “Night Gallery.”
Rod Serling, who also wrote for the classic “Twilight Zone,” grew up in Upstate New York in the city of Binghamton.
I believe that all too many of these NXIVM enablers will fly under the radar altogether and escape.
Raniere was too lazy to travel to Alaska to do his dirty work but he had a lot of helpers on hand to help him cover up his scandals.
And I’ll bet that many of those helpers eventually found their way to Clifton Park to worship at the foot of Raniere’s Throne.
The Kristin Snyder story illustrates why the NDNY in Albany should continue the investigation of Raniere and NXIVM.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
