My Sister’s Autopsy

I was going to search for this, and, there it was! I have been forsaken and betrayed. Isolating me was their only answer. I am a newspaperman who sought the truth, and gladly paid the price. I deserved a team of reporters to help me.


Morris and Mary White Ovington


Mary White Ovington was inspired by William Morris and the Pre-Raphaelites and became a Socialist. This led to he being a co-founder of the NAACP.  Jane Morris was the Muse to several Pre-Raphaelites.

Elsie Whiteaker Martinez was a Muse to many of the Bohemian Artist and Writers of Oakland. Her daughter, Micaela, was a Socialist who studied art under Ralph Stackpole who befriended the Marxist Artist Diego Rivera, and his famous wife, Kahlo.

Michael Harkins was a very close friend of the Stackpole family. He told me a story how Ralph fed the rats in their hill home. Marilyn knew all about the legal problems my family was cursed wth when my famous sister, Christine Rosamond, died. Ms. Reed knew there was a battle coming over my copyright, involving Kathy Vrzak. Ralph was born in Williams Oregon. His father, Fremont Stackpole, may have been named after John Fremont.

When Michael saw the coroners report we ordered, he said “Your sister was murdered!” Later on he said; “I am dropping my investigation. This is not worth getting killed for.: Michael is dead. He was a Private Investigator who worked for Bill Linhart who was hired by Carl Chessman. I then sent our report to a freelance reporter for the Carmel Pine Cone, and he showed it to Jacci Belford who showed it to my family. I get a call from Shamus Dundon who says he is upset, and I accused him of murder. I added what Michael said to our report. “You have proven they lied at least once. You now have assume everything you have heard is a lie until you prove it the truth.

Anything could have happened at Rocky Point, including murder.” Lindhart had taught him the rudiments of PI work. One year later, Jon Detro is dead. Yesterday, while looking at the waves break on the rocks at Depoe Bay, I understood he asked my surviving, Vicki Presco, a very important question that solicited this answer; “I was helping her (Christine) overcome her fear of the water.” Why would anyone want to do that? I read in the Register Guard a young man did not have any fear of the ocean, and he got swept off rocks, taken out to sea, where he fought for his life for almost three minutes, then drowned. He was from Georgia. Christine lived in Carmel for twenty years. She saw the reports of many people who did not own a healthy fear of the Ocean.

I did not spend Christmas with any member of my natal family. This is a tradition that I thought would end when my daughter came into my life. My surrogate family, are all dead, including Michael Harkins, who helped me investigate Christine’s death. He also began to help me find my daughter two weeks before she found me. When Michael saw the painting of Rena I did at Peter Shapiro’s house, he suggested we try to find her. We talked about making a film about this search.

Eight years ago Michael’s good friend, Peter Stackpole Jr. drowned. Michael was very good friends of all the creative Stackpoles. He told me a story about Ralph feeding the mice in his studio. He took me to see the Stackpole home in ruins after the Oakland Fire. We saw piles of glass negatives, destroyed. Peter photographed my kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor for LIFE magazine, and Errol Flynn. who my mother and aunt dated. Ralph was good friends Diego Rivera and his artistic wife. These creative Bohemian souls were the compatriots of David Weston and his Muses. Ralph did a painting of Tina Modotti wearing pearls.

Marilyn Reed was my Muse until she began to covertly conspire to get around my copyright. She was going to be the centerpiece of my autobiography ‘Capturing Beauty’. She took herself out of the picture. Mary White Ovington has taken her place. I declare Mary a Bohemian Pre-Raphaelite.

Michael Harkins sent me this article while investigating the death of my sister. I sent a letter to Andrew Cuomo of HUD about attorney Lawrence Chazen’s attempt to take over my families creatives legacy. Marilyn Reed knew  how traumatizing this was for my family, yet she allows Ms. Vrzak to bully me with a fake legal threat. There are two movie scripts out there. I will be doing a treatment for a reality show, and a movie. Christine and Stefan Eins have already read my idea for a play. I would like the Aikens family to be in my shows. I believe Mattie has been looking down on her family.

“I am a member in good standing of the State Bar of California and an attorney
on record for 50% interest in Shannon Rosamond. In my 16 years as a member of
the State Bar California, I have never experienced a more deliberate fraud on
any court or more reckless and calculated attempt to fraudulently take control
of a probate estate at the exclusion of the lawful heirs and total manipulation
of a tester’s intent that the present efforts of Attorney’s Robin Beare,
Lawrence J. Chazen and Garth Benton, the descendants former spouse.”

“Over the specific argument of Ms. Beare, Judge Silver refused to appoint Mr.
Chazen. Neither Ms. Beare nor Mr. Chazen disclosed to the court the very
critical fact that Mr. Chazen has the largest single creditor’s claim against
the estate and is a former business partner and business associate of Garth
Benton who the court had removed as Special Administer just moments before.”

Elsie Whitaker was born on March 1, 1890 in Manitoba, Canada to Herman Whitaker, a novelist and war correspondent.[1]

She and her family moved to the hills of Piedmont, California in 1902. By age 16, Whitaker was a “free-spirited artist.” Piedmont Bohemian George Sterling called her “the Blessed Damozel.”[2]
