I’m a fan of the internet. I believe ardently in both free speech and personal freedom.

But there are times when I hate all of the above.

Just got off the phone with my mother and have been exchanging emails with my father, and frankly I am at sea. I cannot recall a single instance in my life to date in which I’ve felt this helpless. As nearly as I can determine, everything that can be done is being done. Out of respect for the privacy of the family involved, I’ll say only that a young cousin of mine is involved, and that my heart bleeds for her parents.

If any of you happen to have contacts in the FBI or with forensic technology investigators, I’d consider it a personal favor if you’d help me make a connection.

We could use all the help we can get right now.


  1. My prayers go out to your family. I hope things work out.

  2. thank you, James, both from me personally and on behalf of my family.

  3. Hi Steve, I have passed this along to a contact at the FBI.

  4. thank you, Jeff. i owe you one.

  5. Y’all have my thoughts, prayers, and concerns, Steve.

  6. Terrible. Just terrible. It’s hard to imagine how things can get to this point, but with the others above, our thoughts are with you all.

  7. Good luck.

  8. I at one time had worked for the FBI before deciding on a different career. As a result, I might be able to at least point you in the right direction. If you could e-mail me ([email protected]) with a little more detail on what is happening, I’ll do my best to advise you and, see if I can get in touch with someone.

    Either way, I wish you well.

  9. Very sorry to hear about this difficult situation. I hope it gets resolved quickly and smoothly.

  10. I know of several folks that may be able to help in a variety of enterprises. They are members of Infraguard (FBI program) and are certified in forensic technology investigations. The leading vendor in this space is Encase which is one of the tools used.
