Reality Check: Kim Snyder Shuts Down Toni Natalie’s False Claims!

Toni Natalie has a tattoo on her back which reads - "‘In War, Truth is the First Casualty. . . But Not This Time” --or so she says.

Kristin Marie Snyder was an environmental consultant living in Anchorage, Alaska, who disappeared in 2003 after leaving a NXIVM intensive. Police found her pickup truck in Seward near the shore of Resurrection Bay, with a note suggesting she committed suicide. Because her body was never found, the case remains unresolved.

In 2019, I appeared as the lead investigator in “The Lost Women of NXIVM, a documentary by Investigation Discovery. The program delved into the circumstances surrounding the deaths and disappearances of women who had connections with NXIVM. One of the central figures in this documentary is Kristin Snyder.

In my case, Toni Natalie recently wrote to the Court claiming I victimized the Snyder family in connection with the documentary.

Toni Natalie wrote about the Snyders and me:

One of [Frank Parlato’s] targets was a family who lost their daughter Kristin Snyder in 2003. Because her body was never found he made this a focus for his upcoming true crime show. When Mr. Parlato contacted the family and brought the producers in to film, they were unaware that Kristin’s sister Kim, who Mr. Parlato wanted to film, was a mentally challenged woman. Something he was aware of. Seeing the effect this was having on her and her family the producers never used any of the footage showing the family. But Mr. Parlato still uses her today as click bate [sic], along with many other NXIVM victims.

‘Stop Lying, Leave Us Alone’: Kim Snyder’s Fiery Plea to Toni Natalie!

Kim Snyder asked to make a rebuttal.

By Kim Snyder

Toni Natalie’ says I am “mentally challenged.” But how is she qualified to make this assessment?

In her book, The Program, Toni admits she “dropped out of high school two weeks into [her] sophomore year.”

I graduated from Dillon High School with honors in 1990.

I have been working with the VA of Dillon County for 18 years.  It changed to VFW this past year.

Just as a point to consider on Toni Natalie. She said she dropped out of high school as a sophomore. But I believe the truth is that she dropped out of high school in her senior year.

Why do I think this? Because her senior year photo is in the school yearbook.

Toni Natalie claims she dropped out of high school in the 10th grade in her book. So, why is her senior picture in the high school yearbook?

I do not consider myself mentally handicapped. I have some physical disabilities.

Toni says in her letter to the judge that Frank Parlato contacted me.

As I recall, I contacted Frank on May 16, 2019.  We met in October of that year.

In her letter to the judge, Toni claimed that Frank used our family to get clickbait – which she did not even spell correctly.

But the reality is that Toni has used our family for clickbait.  On social media, Toni Natalie has used the hashtag #JusticeforKristinSnyder for years.

We never appointed her as a spokesperson for our family.

She claimed that she wanted to try to solve the mystery of Kristin’s death. She wanted to come to our home and be, what she called, “comforting.” I don’t call it comforting, I call it bull crap.

She wanted to be Frank Parlato, so to speak, and she’s absolutely not him.

No More Bull

Toni Natalie MK10 Art…

I want Toni’s lies to stop. I want her to leave me alone. I want her to leave our family alone. She is not the Snyder family spokesperson.

In 2007, I had a son. I NEVER gave him away like Toni did with hers.

There is no man in the world who could make me leave my son or abandon my role as a mother.

In her book, Toni admits she abandoned her son for Keith Raniere. To hear her tell it, she did it to protect him, but if we look closely, we will see she is lying.

In her book, Toni wrote:

The situation was not safe — not for me, and certainly not for Michael. Above all, I was going to protect my son. I could not risk anything bad happening to him. It broke my heart, but I sent him back to Rochester, to stay with Rusty and his mother—where the escalating situation with Keith was less likely to harm him. It was supposed to be temporary. I figured he’d be back in a month or two, at worst.

But Michael never moved back.

He stayed with Rusty until he graduated from high school.

That I allowed myself to be separated from my child, far and away the most important person in my life, shows just how afraid I was of Keith Raniere.

I have to call bullshit on Toni Natalie. She stayed with Keith for years after she gave up Micheal.

She was not afraid of Keith Raniere. This can be seen in the following story in her book about her breakup with him.

Toni Natalie and Keith Raniere…

Toni wrote:

We finally broke up because of a sweater. This was in early April of 1999. It may well have been on April Fool’s Day.

When I left for work that morning, Keith was still in bed. He’d been up late the night before doing God knows what (or whom). Just before I left, I put a load of laundry in the washing machine. I called him at lunch.

“Can you please rotate the laundry?” He reacted like I was speaking Greek. “Rotate the laundry?”

“Take the clothes out of the washing machine, put them in the dryer, throw in a few dryer sheets, turn the dryer on.”


“One thing: my sweater is in the wash, the black wool one. You can’t put that in the dryer or it will shrink.”

He consented to help me, which was miracle enough, and I hung up the phone. When I got home, the clothes had made it into the dryer. All of them, including my black wool sweater, which was now too small for my dog to wear.

“Keith,” I said, holding up the shrunken garment. “What the hell?”

He looked up from his dog-eared copy of Dianetics. “What?”

“Why did you put my sweater in the dryer?”

“You told me to.”

“No, Keith. No, I didn’t.”

And the Little Prince lost his shit. He cornered me in the laundry room, screaming, spit flying from the corners of his mouth, like a rabid dog. “You are wrong, Toni. As usual. You don’t know what you said. I’m the Smartest Man in the World! I have a 240 IQ! Do you really think that you’re right, and I’m wrong? Tell me you’re wrong. Do it. Tell me you’re wrong.”


“Say it.”


“Say you’re wrong.”

“Fuck you.”

For a minute I thought he was going to hit me, but he fought off that impulse. Instead, he stormed out of the house, like a hurricane veering back out to sea.

He didn’t come back. Instead, he sent Kristin and Pam to the house, to entice me to apologize and beg for reinstatement. I refused. After about four days, I came home from work to find that most of his stuff had been removed from the house.

Good, I thought. I told my mom. I told my brother. They were delighted. We’d broken up, like a normal couple.

Toni and Keith…but no Michael

Gosh, Toni was really, really afraid of Keith. So afraid she broke up with him over a sweater, not because she lost her son.

Toni, I call bullshit on every word that comes out of your mouth.

  • Why exactly are these two drag queens bitching about who’s a retard and who’s smarter? Natalie has every right to find the truth for Kristin. Toni should go straight to work on Kim’s case. These two should team up and fish Snyders body from Resurrection Bay together, not apart.

    • I think they are both men living in a barbie world. Why is Mr Toni always calling Mr Kim retarded to strangers?

  • ATTENTION!!!!!!!!

    The Unofficial Toni Natalie & Frank Parlato Conflict (saga) Chronology:

    1.Toni Natalie attempted to craft and control her own narrative and any legal actions in regards to NXIVM as well as her inflated role in taking NXIVM down.

    2. Inexplicably, she began to see Frank Parlato as a threat to her interests.

    3. Lies and mistruths were spread about Frank to ex-NXIVM members and individuals in the media.

    4. Frank became aware of the concerted effort by Toni to sully his name.

    5. The Frank Report published a series of articles setting the record straight. The truth!

    6. Toni Natalie’s attorney threatened to sue Frank.

    7. Frank stated he welcomed any lawsuit and would love to hear Toni’s deposition phase of any legal action.

    8. Frank has yet to hear back from her attorney/attorneys.

    The End.

    • When will this material become a template for a docudrama or a television series? It offers plenty of material for many entertaining hours.

    • Could it be more complicated than that? 👇

      “…Something about NXIVM that I can’t shake. Is there a code in the name itself? Why yes it would appear so.
      My first thought is that it translates to roman numerals. Except N is not part of roman numerals. The rest, XIVM is 1004 according to two roman numeral translators. Is there significance to 1004? And if so, it would be N1004. Ok…that gives me a …. sony amplifier model. Aaand a nice house in Wisconsin. Hmm. not helpful. Btw, if your lost, this is a psychogeographical google search / numerological exploration of NXIVM in terms of roman numerals

      1004 has lots of interesting leads

      Vancouver BC public workers union since 1911 — this is Canada’s SEIU
      1004 means ‘angel’ in korean — there’s a crazy popular kpop song (15M on YT) with this number in it. It’s as silly and overwrought as you’d expect. They are learning bad things from the US
      Year 1004
      1004 portraits
      Record of the Transmission of the Lamp, written in 1004
      Here we go. Found it. First Sillymanss Temple completed in 1004 BC, according to mosans, whose ancestors built it. I should have started with mosans, I always end up there anyway.
      2nd source, written in 1911 — 1004 B.C. The Consecration of Salamon’s Temple.
      Ok so N

      What is ‘N’? In a straight substitution cipher it’s 14, numerologically reduces to 5. Helpful? Notsure. We know 5 is Queen Elizabeth and all hellfires derived (5 eyes countries). 7 is Jesooits and SES and UN related. Double them and it means international or specfically UN/Red Cross/Nights of Mkltra related. Don’t ask how I know this. I just know, ok? Would take too long to explain. But trust me, it’s now 4 yrs of work disentangling it.

      Guesses on 5: New? No? Or just FIVE EYES Marsons? Damn, it’s this telegraphing what we already suspected. I feel like I’m going in a closed circle at this point.

      UPDATE: some words were changed to avoid detection by barsoomians, browneyes of providences, underworlders, cialgos and nasaholes …“

      By the way, is the finger pointing down gesture politically and/or religiously significant in those secret circles?

  • Why did AG offices let NXIVM violate NY General Business Law § 359-fff for SO MANY YEARS? says:

    “New York General Business Law § 359-fff bans so-called “chain distributor schemes.” As is defined under the statute:

    [A] “chain distributor scheme” is a sales device whereby a person, upon condition that he make an investment, is granted a license or right to solicit or recruit for profit or economic gain one or more additional persons who are also granted such license or right upon condition of making an investment and may further perpetuate the chain of persons who are granted such license or right upon such “condition.” …

  • Love the comments – why can’t Judge Arcara lock Toni up for slander and perjury ? She has kept on over and over –
    She wants you locked up – why not her ?

    • Enough with the division, already.

      Just a few years ago, Toni and Frank and everyone else who so bravely fought the Bronfman sisters’ lawfare were united in one solid front. That’s how they all took down NXIVM — together.

      Then, at some point … there were several misunderstandings and a few hurt feelings.

      Many of those misunderstandings might have been arranged to hurt a few feelings for politics and control. Those kinds of arrangements are made when big politics are at stake. Unfortunately, big politics are always at stake wherever there’s money to be made.

  • “She did not even realize Keith was trying to destroy her. She did come to realize that though.

    I met Karen again in 2019, through another proctor who had left Nxivm. We met at a diner and the first thing Karen said to me was “I want to thank you. You saved my life. It was the Frank Report that made me realize that Keith is a psychopath.”

    • In the first ‘Sex and the City’ movie, Big uses this quote to woo Carrie by email after he leaves her at the altar. It’s from a book Love Letters from great men that Carrie had borrowed from the library and read to him.
      Stealing some other guy’s move,

  • How come no one believes what Toni Natalie has to say? In her own mind, all of her “prophecies” ring true. Was she cursed by the gods? Or Keith Raniere? Frank Parlato? Or her Book Publisher who hasn’t sold enough books?

    Answer: Toni Natalie and Chet Hardin are telling a narrative. They are storytellers.

    Some refer to them as “bullshit artists.”

    Is there truth in art the same way there is truth in journalism?

    Shakespeare, in The Winter’s Tale, sets part of the action on the seacoast of Bohemia. Bohemia is landlocked; it has no seacoast. But this fact does not damage The Winter’s Tale as literature, though it is false geography.

    Remember the Bohemian seacoast every time Toni Natalie writes something or opens her mouth. She is telling a tale. Evaluate the story for what it is. Go to her for entertainment. But do not confuse what she is doing with a search for truth. Toni Natalie has no facts, gives no testimony, and offers no truth other than about the fantasy world she has spun in her storytelling.

  • I’ve never met Kim but I can tell she’s not retarded. Toni, on the other hand, only a fucking retard would write lies for the world to pick apart. If I were Frank’s judge or any judge, being lied to on a public forum would tick me off. I’d like to know Toni Natalie’s view on transgender rights. A simple scarf would help hide her Adam’s apple, but nope, just like her bodacious man arm,s she chooses to expose just little hints of her true self. Toni, RKelly yourself, and get out of that closet.

  • After Toni and Chet Hardwin published their book, they both have a lot to win or lose (unless they don’t see it that way)

    • Toni:

      “You know, as this process has unfolded over the last twenty-odd years, I’ve had people – – especially Chet – – say to me, ‘You know someday, I have to write a book.’ And when Chet would tell me that I would say to him, ‘Well, we have to have an ending because a good book always has to have a good ending.’ …”

      • Chet was Toni’s handler after she left the NXIVM Project to make sure she wouldn’t talk about everything she knew. Scary times.

      • Start listening to Matt D’Elia’s conversation with Toni at about the 29:00 minute mark. She saw the beginning of “NXIVM” when a few influential and well-connected individuals turned Raniere into a businessman first, and then turned him into a man who could make thousands of people do whatever he told them to do.

        NXIVM was a few steps up from the Manson Family experiment. Read Tom O’Neill’s book, CHAOS to learn more.

        5:40 Toni: “… 200,000 members of Consumers’ Buyline …”
        6:39 Toni: “… the enablers that were with him …”
        8:10 Toni: “… Cafritz family, socialites in DC, a woman appointed by Reagan to help women in business …”
        11:08 Toni: “… When he met Nancy, Nancy claimed to be the #2 NLP expert in the world …”

        21:47 Matt: “… very sinister … Scientology … was he even aware of what he was up to? … an army of people who will do exactly what he says … so similar to Scientology … hard to believe it wasn’t by design.”

        About the 29:00 minute mark, Toni shares what scared her the most. Keith and Nancy were extracting the most personal information from all NXIVM participants right from the beginning.

        30:25 Toni: “… the purpose … to illicit the first collateral …”

        Brainwashing and blackmail all over the world … and growing exponentially.

    • 41:15 Toni: “… So I think the influence and the power – – and Albany is a cesspool. It’s just full of corruption.”

      Chet’s a smart guy and according to Chet, no one believed it was happening. That means the big story isn’t about the cesspool of corruption in Albany that ignored NXIVM for twenty years. It’s about “coercive control”. It’s about a sex cult.

      👉 The big story is NOT about the political corruption in Albany that ignored NXIVM for twenty years.

      43:00 Toni: “… we have a website called The Fall of NXIVM and we have a spot on the website where people can contact us where they can share their experiences either publicly or privately — and in a safe space …”

      Anyone with tips about NXIVM can contact Chet and feel safe. 🤡

  • Kim, you are a hoot! You just roasted that low down scallywag. Toni better get her shit together, but that’s as likely as the south rising up again. Kim, you served her a good southern skillet of in your face hot grits. ♥

    • Like attracts like. Toni most definitely felt the legal wrath of Keith and was a victim in that sense. With regard to her relationship with him, she sounds as if she was just as manipulative and a game player. She is no victim in that sense but likes to portray herself like the ultimate victim. I think she’s more of a case of playing with fire and he ultimately burned her.

  • So, Toni (10th grade drop-out) is able to declare an individual mentally challenged?

    Why is Toni getting involved with the Snyder family? Why is she attacking Kim?

    Toni, leave them alone!!

  • “Trivers, pursuing his theory of the emotions to its logical conclusion, notes that in a world of walking lie detectors the best strategy is to believe your own lies. You can’t leak your hidden intentions if you don’t think they are your intentions. According to his theory of self-deception, the conscious mind sometimes hides the truth from itself the better to hide it from others. But the truth is useful, so it should be registered somewhere in the mind, walled off from the parts that interact with other people.” Steven Pinker

  • Frank,
    Thanks to Cheers to Kim. This put me on cloud 9 times 10.

    Toni is a narcissistic brat- who has lied to the literally entire country about me. That includes Dr. Oz, Frank, the judge on the public docket and I anm a bit baffled ant how she won’t stop.

    Thanks 🙏!!!!!!!!!

    • Kim, intelligent people grow through life, embrace change, learn and get stronger with all the frustrations and obstacles set before them – they do their best to face and serve the truth, no matter how difficult, like you have always done here, on the Frank Report.

      Whereas, fools build a tight little fairy story round themselves and put all their energy into polishing the details of their own idolatry – they do their best to avoid truth, no matter who they throw under the bus to do that – like Toni Nathalie.

      Thank you for standing up for you and yours and doing right by Frank. Wishing you and yours all the very best.

  • Congrats, Kim! You slammed Toni and did a fine job of discrediting everything she claimed.

    I was angered when she took it upon herself to diagnose you with any disability at all – who is she to do that?

    Clearly, you are sharp, clear, logical, factual, and able to defend your position.

    I love that she used hashtag and your sister’s name as clickbait. Clearly projecting her own actions onto Frank!

    It’s frightening how pathological liars rewrite history without a care.

    Thanks for taking the time to defend yourself and showing who Toni really is.

    She created a false victim statement to take away a man’s liberty.

    Who does that?

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.
