My Minor Daughter Was Deceived

Capturing Beauty

Above is a photograph of ghost writer, Tom Snyder. He has what Christine would call “beady eyes”. Did he stalk my daughter? Did he have her best interests at heart? Did he lure her away from her newfound father?

To involve my minor child in the lies and madness that surrounded Garth and Christine Benton, is pure evil. But, there is Drew Benton in the thick of it. When I talked to Heather Hanson after I found her – she was missing for two years – I asked her why she saw members of my family after I told her there was criminal activity going on. And, they went after Shannon – and her mother, my sister! This is what she said;

“You don’t know the whole story. Christine was very abusive to Drew!”

I was in shock. I knew members of my family, Gallery people, and perhaps, Tom Snyder, had gotten to my daughter, and turned her against Christine. The Non-Looters were trying to make millions off Tom’s book – and their movie about Christine’s life. What?

“Did you read Snyder’s book? He says terrible things about Christine and our family. He says we looted my sister’s house after the funeral. This did not happen. Did you read it?”


I was trying to stay calm because I wanted my only child back in my life. I mentioned they were after our story – that competed with their story – our recovery miracle! Let’s concentrate on Tom Snyder because there are so many pieces of this criminal conspiracy.

When was Snyder told about the alleged looting of Christine’s house that he writes about in HIS book? Even though he is a hired ghost writer, he has to bare some responsibility – especially when he is talking about my MINOR CHILD and her mother who came into my life in March of 2001. Snyder and Pierrot were contacting me and wanting me in their book – before I learned I was a father. Why would they want ONE OF THE LOOTERS in their book? Stacey Pierrot – knew who the looters were! She was one of the “gallery people” who tried to staunch the flow. But, let’s have bygones be bygones – even if GRAND THEFT is involved! Let’s make Stacey – a millionaire off her book and movie!

Why do I highly suspect the LOOTING EVENT was invented to make ME LOOK BAD, just incase a producer – LIKES MY STORY BETTER! Could this be – possible? How fucking diabolical! One minute Tom Snyder is sucking up to me, my daughter, and her mother, and when he does not get all three of us in his corner – HE TURNS ON ME AND DESTROYS MY REPUTATION! And, he’s just getting started! It looks like ALL THE PRESCO FAMILY WERE IN ON IT! You can’t trust that family! Best go with THE OUTSIDERS…..the beloved and trusted – GALLERY PEOPLE!

After my beloved sister’s funeral, I spent much time in the kitchen talking to my mother and my aunt Lillian. The three of us have a high octane sense of humor. Our laughter filled the house. Upstairs is Cindy Blake who I knew since she was six months old. Raphael was there. My brother came and went – several times. Shamus Dundon was there, as was my friend, Michael Harkins. Michael and I left around 9:00 P.M. Raphael came out to the car to say goodbye. A couple of weeks later she told me Shannon and my mother got in a terrible fight after my niece came downstairs clutching a armful of papers – demanding to know who rifled through Christine files. Garth did this – while my family was at the funeral.

Here is Special Executor, Sydney Morris, of Buck, Heisinger and Rose, talking about closing the estate in 2010. He too is responsible for THE MOVIE MADNESS. Like moths to – THE FAME!

I began my Recovery Book in 1992, two years before Christine drowned.

“By September 2000, however, plans were underway for a biography of Decedent, which Petitioner hoped might create interest in her work. The book was published in 2002. Although the book did not spur the hoped-for interest in Decedent’s life and work, efforts continued to market the concept of a screenplay based upon Decedent’s life. Petitioner hoping that this might be brought to fruition, elected to keep the estate open. However, it is the Petitioner’s belief the likelihood of an increased interest in Decedents work is negligible, and the time has come to close the estate.”

Here is Patrice Hanson, e-mailing me about the idea of two bios being written, weeks after we made contact. What does she mean by saying ” seems like a real nice guy also”? Is Patrice offering our daughter a CHOICE as to who can better further her career – she doesn’t have? Like I said, there war SO many arms on this octopus that can now be shown in whole.

I¡¯ve been thinking about the apparent conflict in regard to the
biography. Perhaps there is information I don¡¯t have but it seems to me that a biography written by the brother would be a very different book from a very different perspective than one written by an outsider and so there would be room for the creation of both of them. I know when I am really interested in someone or something, I like to get my hands on as many resources as possible to get information from a variety of points of view. So I don¡¯t see that it needs to be an either/or situation. But, as I said, perhaps there is something I don¡¯t know that you do. We can talk about it more. Tom Snyder seems like a really nice guy also. It seems he is supportive of you and he definitely played an important part in connecting you with Heather and that is important and not to be ignored.”

Here is what Tom Snyder from his bio ‘When You Close Your Eyes’. I got e-mails between Stacey Pierrot, we discussing if I am going to contribute to HER BOOK! Why would she want me – ONE OF THE LOOTERS SHE SAW – in her book, that she wanted to be made into a movie. Will ‘The Looting Scene’ provide some real drama to THE HATE FEST? Maybe I will be EXCLUDED as a looter – if I play ball? I am going to contact Pierrot and ask her to make a video exonerating me of ALL CRIMES, lest my daughter wonder if HER FATHER IS A CRIMINAL!

““Before the service, Vicki had taken the trouble to go through Christine’s bedroom, putting her jewelry and intimate belongings out of sight. As matters turned out, it did little good, for the funeral was not long over before family members and others were ravaging Christine’s house, taking whatever could be carted away. The artist’s closet, a veritable mother lode – took the worst beating. World-class spender that Christine had been, much of the clothing had never been worn. So whatever still bore price tags was hauled off to be exchanged for money. Jewelry disappeared, as well as other personal belongings. Gallery employees and close friends of the family, along with Vicki, were doing their best to staunch the flow – the estate had not yet been inventoried – but to no avail.”
