Missing 411 CanAm… or Just Missing 911?
Fox Mulder

If a kid gets lost in the forest with a bear to keep him company but no one else witnesses it… did the bear exist at all?

While this play on the old philosophical tree-falling-in-the-forest question might seem silly, it’s at the forefront of the minds of both the parents of young Casey Hathaway as well as those who searched for him during his recent three-day absence in the wilderness of North Carolina.

Going missing in the great outdoors is nothing new, it’s been happening since the beginning of time and more often than not during our modern era if the unfortunate soul’s body is found, evidence suggests a perfectly reasonable explanation as to the cause. Sometimes it’s a mountain biker that’s veered off of the trail and fallen down into a secluded ravine, or a cross country skier who has fallen upside down into the void existing in the snow under the branches of an evergreen. While these horrific examples are disquieting, they at least make sense.

What makes zero sense is how Casey Hathaway, a three-year-old boy without sufficient all-weather gear spent three nights in the wilderness alone and did not succumb to exposure – nights where the temperature dropped to as low as twenty degrees Fahrenheit. Or was he alone after all?

Per Casey’s immediate account of the events upon rescue he was actually befriended and looked after by someone, someone who in this case would have to be the least expected… a bear.

This at first seems like the delusions or hallucinations of a child’s mind as it endures the highest stress levels it has ever known and one may at first theorize that this must be some sort of defense mechanism that gets set off once a kid is in a situation of extended absolute terror.

While that all may be possible to explain Casey’s account, what it does not explain is how Casey physically survived this event with rain and temperatures so unforgiving that at times searchers were themselves turned away due to the extreme weather conditions.

What propels this incident further into the unexplained is that it is not the first of its kind, in fact it sounds eerily familiar to several accounts noted in the “Missing 411 CanAm” project run by investigator David Paulides covering disappearances of people from remote areas of the US and Canada.

Paulides – a former police detective – has been working on this effort for years now and has compiled a library of information on an increasingly disturbing phenomenon occurring in our nation and around the world today and supposedly throughout history – the disappearances of people from remote forested areas, usually abutting to large tracts of wilderness.

Several of the accounts Paulides has accumulated over the years bear a strong resemblance to Casey’s story. Whilst the vast majority of these unfortunate children are actually never found (or scant remains were later found), the few who have survived have described some friendly animal or creature as having assisted them through their ordeal, sometimes a wolf-life animal, sometimes a bear, but always something non-human and furry. One account even had the child claiming the bear had fed him berries, berries that doctors later confirmed were in the child’s stomach.

Of course the quickest explanation is that the kid ate the berries on his own and that those wild berries themselves perhaps containing some weak chemical or hallucinogen helped spur on the imagination. Nothing can be definitively proved here except that these children somehow survived when the others unfortunately did not.

If we think hard enough and back far enough here, people going missing in this specific area of North Carolina itself isn’t even a new phenomenon by any means, and once we start looking at things from a different angle, disturbing they become indeed – and very quickly.

This area of North Carolina is just north of the Croatan National Forest, which contains four wilderness areas and is named after the Croatan Indians, an Algonquian Native American group who’d called these lands home since time immemorial.

That by itself seems cause for no immediate concern save for those of us who remember the Lost Colony of Roanoke. This was the English colony that after three years without contact, in 1590 upon the return of reinforcements with supplies….was found with no one and nothing except for the word of “CROATOAN” carved into a tree trunk. Nothing was ever found of the settlers of that colony and to this day it’s completely unknown as to what happened to them or why they would’ve deserted their camp leaving only this cryptic word referencing the local Indians.

Some say this means the Indians themselves must have removed the colonists from their fort. Others insist the Croatan Indians only assisted these settlers. One thing is for certain, it all remains a mystery, with the Croatan tribe as a common denominator.

This doesn’t only suggest open hostilities toward the Colony of Roanoke however, for it is the Native Americans themselves who have many stories of their own of sacred places where strange things are known to happen, or places one must not go for fear of never returning. In fact, perhaps a cross-referencing is needed between the modern disappearances of people and the locations of Native American accounts of supernatural phenomenon.

Perhaps someday we will get to the bottom of the mysteries surrounding the disappearances of people and children from remote wilderness areas, or the unknowns underlying the history of the Croatan Indians and the Lost Colony of Roanoke in this region of what is now North Carolina. In the meantime however, we can rest assured that at least young Casey Hathaway’s name was not added to the list of those of the Missing 411 who were never seen again. Instead, he will now grow up to be an adult who can ask these questions along with us and perhaps even later be a key to our understanding of whatever it was that happened to him all those years ago in his youth.

Welcome back Casey.

It was said that the colonists had agreed that if they’d left the camp, they would carve their destination into a tree, and if the departure was by force, it would be accompanied by a carved Maltese Cross. No symbol was left with the carved letters, however the search of a nearby island bearing the same name as the Indians yielded no results. It remains a complete mystery what happened to this colony of settlers.

Chris Hansen arrested for….bouncing checks?
Starboy

Chris Hansen from NBC’s ‘To Catch a Predator’

Life makes little sense in this year two-thousand nineteen the year of our Lord however THIS takes the cake!

https://www.ajc.com/entertainment/celebrity-news/catch-predator-host-chris-hansen-arrested-for-bouncing-checks/fNHKkzNmP2AHeRNDYBpBUL/

Chris Hansen, from the various “To catch a …..” shows has been “caught” (he actually turned himself in) writing checks too large for his bank account.

Apparently Chris has been giving at least one guy the run around on some money owed and has written multiple bad checks over time. What’s astonishing about this is how it seems to unfold like a slow motion train wreck over months culminating in Chris very bizarrely turning himself in for said charge instead of just having worked everything out beforehand and having just paid his dang bills!

Chris has definitely done some good work over the years, I do hope he gets this straightened out and the aggrieved business owner compensated appropriately. Chris we hope you get back on your feet!

This is a great documentary for those interested in relaxing late-night entertainment. Be ready to deal with dubbing however as the film is just about entirely non-English…

A thief in the night…
Captain Corn

It’s a dangerous time in America to go looking for blame after an African-American man has been shot dead inside of his own Dallas apartment home, however that is exactly what we’re embarking upon with the latest murder indictment of the police officer who committed the accidental shooting.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/amber-guyger-dallas-officer-who-shot-man-in-his-own-apartment-indicted-for-murder/ar-BBQjH59?ocid=spartandhp

This unfortunate incident had the extra bad luck of happening during the latest few chaotic years of absolute political and racial upheaval in the United States. No one wants to see an innocent man killed, especially when it aggravates already open wounds however this particular shooting is almost guaranteed to fan the flames of racial conflict in this nation for the seeming audacity of the circumstances.

Officer Guyger claims she was under the impression that she was inside of her own apartment whenever she saw Mr. Jean in the darkness and discharged her weapon following Jean’s failed heeds to her requests.

To some people, this sounds like an overzealous white female Dallas Police officer who kicked in the door of an innocent black man and went to town guns blazing…to OTHER people this sounds like an absolute tragedy for all involved…

All I’m asking is for people to realize how absurdly ridiculous it would be for this woman to have committed the offense of which she is being accused (the charge was raised to murder recently over manslaughter!?); that she would knowingly shoot another resident at her own apartment complex and put on this whole “accident charade”. Come on people. The only thing that’s almost as absurd is that she went to someone else’s apartment and thought it was her own right???

Wrong. This is the part of the article that really grabbed my attention. This has happened to me before a couple of times actually living in Dallas apartments. At least on three separate occasions over the past five years have I accidentally gotten off the elevator on the wrong floor of my apartment, stumbled down the hallway, and erroneously attempted to insert my key into the wrong door. One time this happened and I actually just opened the door – it hadn’t even been locked – to someone else’s apartment! They were pissed!

As far fetched as the tone of this article might suggest it is to accidentally come across a door IDENTICAL to yours in a hallway IDENTICAL to the one you live in and in a building IDENTICAL to yours….it actually CAN happen!!! It’s called getting off the elevator on the wrong floor of your building; it can happen to anyone at any time actually (especially if alcohol were to be involved etc – which explains one of my incidents).

Our prayers go out to everyone involved in this horrible tragedy and if there are any lessons to be learned here they may be to be more vigilant and aware as you enter and exit your own residence’s door because a thief in the night might just take your life or your freedom that evening…

Mexican citizen killed in Mexico is somehow ICE’s fault…?
Captain Corn

The disinformation campaign by the American media continues and shows no signs of even slowing down. What’s the most interesting part of the propaganda these days however is how the contents of posted articles on major news sites will contradict their titles time and time again.

This Mexican citizen had been given DACA status which was subsequently terminated as a result of actions of his own including being convicted of at least one drug charge (for certain at least two initial charges), and while awaiting an immigration hearing was convicted of another misdemeanor charge.

To me, this article proves a couple of things:

#1 – ICE and the US Government’s policies actually seemed to work well in this case; they were processing someone out of the country that couldn’t behave while on a temporary DACA status (is this not exactly what we want and what the rules are made for?)

2# – The fact that he was murdered by no doubt  his own people and certainly in his own country proves that we need to enforce immigration policies now more than ever and also need to be MORE strict about them not LESS as this article seems to imply

3# – ICE DIDN’T RETURN HIM TO MEXICO. He returned himself, not only by – as the article states – CHOOSING to VOLUNTARILY depart, but also by violating the rules several times while under DACA status

What planet do we live on that the editor of this article not only contradicts his own title, but also believes that all the evidence put forth proves that the US should’ve allowed this man (yes, he’s a man, he was 19 – but reading the article’s title all you see is ‘teen’) to remain in the US? WHY? So he could violate more laws and eventually end up living on the tax payer’s dollar in an already overcrowded prison?

“While waiting on an immigration hearing, Cano Pacheco was convicted of driving under the influence and another misdemeanor…”

“Cano Pacheco was not deported.”

“He opted for voluntary departure, which means he would not suffer the penalties of a formal deportation, such as being banned from legally returning to the United States for a period of years…”

“He requested and was granted voluntary departure on April 10…”

“…and was returned to Mexico at the border in Laredo, Texas, on April 24.”

“He went to the store at 5 p.m. on a Friday. Then he went missing.”
