Maureen Webster

March 2019

Maureen and her husband Jeff had a night out together and had dinner when they got home Jeff remembered setting the house alarm.

Jeff remembers hearing a bang while he was in the kitchen Maureen was upstairs.

“All of a sudden, I heard this explosion above my head,” he recalled. “And I was bleeding all over the place and I had thought she had thrown some firecrackers at me.”

Jeff says that Maureen came downstairs they were both stunned and then he fell to the ground

“I was bleeding everywhere and I can’t see anything and then the next thing I knew I woke up on the floor and I was blind,” he said.

There was another round of gunfire, but Webster claimed he never heard the sounds going off.

“All I know is I woke up on the ground and all I could hear is ‘Jeff I’m hit, I’m hit.’ I say with what? In my mind, I thought something had exploded in the house or something.”

Little did he know that those would be the last words he would ever hear from his wife. The alarms from his house were going off. He didn’t call the police but he said that he knew someone had to of called the police and they had to be on their way. He said then he crawled to the front door and unlocked it so the police could come in.

A neighbor called the police after they arrived Jeff says he remembers no one helping him that they just kept shouting we’ve got to help your wife. “I was just sitting there no one was helping me there were 3 or 4 of them one of them should have been helping me.” Jeff was taken to the hospital and the first thing he asked for was where is his wife. And they notified him she died.

A 911 call brought Sandy police to their home near 11200 South and 900 East.  When they arrived, police heard screams coming from the inside. The front door was open and police entered.  They found the husband and wife shot but alive.  But the wife, Fiore-Webster, died later.  En route to the hospital, Webster told police who may have shot them.

She was shot in the chest two times with a shotgun and pellets ripped through her torso.

A family friend visited him at the hospital where he realized it was not an accidental explosion that killed his wife.

“He said ‘Jeff, this might be a hit you know’ and I said ‘why are you saying that?’ and he said like ‘you got shot,” Webster said. “I said ‘I got shot? From who, with what, where?’”

Sandy police began searching for clues inside and outside of the home.

Two women were named as suspects who had made threats to the family before.

Over the past year, police have executed four search warrants and have requested the women’s cell phone records, text messages, and cell phone tower data.  But a year later, the case remains unsolved.

“Of course we would all like to see closure with this case,” said the father.  But these things take time.  It’s not a cold case they are actively investigating it.  You just have to wait it out and hopefully, something will move.”

Thankfully Jeff’s son was not at the house at the same time.

There was glass blown from the back window with a shotgun you can shoot a shotgun through the glass and you don’t have to be a good shot.

Jeff’s Baby momma stalked him and would threaten him Jeff had a protective order against her and his other ex-girlfriend.

Jeff thinks it could have been one of these two women. Or that someone hired someone else to do the job.

Police have executed 4 warrants and these women claimed that Jeff is a drug dealer that got in over his head. There are no police records with Jeff of anything like this. He’s now blind in one eye and is paralyzed. Jeff’s goal is to hire a private investigator to help solve this case.

Paramedic accused of poisoning wife with Visine drops it is not unreasonable that could happen.

KUTV

Questions to ask Jeff:

You said two women have threatened you in the past you had relationships with both of them what were their names?

Did you have a protective order against either of them?

How long were you and Maureen together? 3 1/2 years

Death by Teletubbies

@teletubbiesupdate

first glace it looks like a trolling account

one of the first tweets says

Look me in the eyes Sharron I am your husband.

Second tweet said Harvest is coming and it has that creepy baby sun photo.

Someone else wasn’t even @ing this account they just said something about teletubies in a tweet and the teletubies updates account write if I were you I would stop talking before something happens to your 2 kids Lisa.

another tweet was can you please let my 3 beautiful starving children inside your restaurant so they can eat please answer this is urgent. @chills

so there is this account called SharronTelubby this account tweets @teletubiesupdates what is this account Dave please stop doing this, come home.

@teletubbiesupdates says leave me alone Sharon you cheater I never should have married you.

She replies with I am so sorry Dave I miss you our kids miss you. please just come home.

He tweets back to her Oh, I am coming home. I’m coming home with a gun and you’re all gonna fucking see god tonight. You made me do this Sharon.

Sharon replies to say No Dave, please don’t

The next tweet from the Teleubieupdate said Let’s put the pistol down Sharon

The Sharon account and the update account were both created on the same day

some tweets from the @sharontelitubby

Dave please don’t hurt me

help

where are my children

Then teletubiesupdate tweeted the sun but it is in black and white and it says the harvest is near.

on October 1st 2017 sharon tweeted

who’s knocking at the door right now It is 2am I am scared.

the next day she tweeted The divorce had to be done Dave you were hurting me.

2 days later

What are you doing whit that gun Dave

This is Sharon’s family we managed to get on her account if anyone has any information on Sharon’s disappearance please let us know.

Teletubbiesupdated

account quoted you will never find her.

Sharon’s account

Dave please surrender yourself yourself it will make everything easier.

Dave says Okay, I surrender I’m driving to me and Sharon;s house where you’re all at right now. I’ll be there in about 20 minutes 6er which apparently means Run in Russian

Sharons account tweets

Okay Dave I see you now outside from the window. Thank you for surrendering but what is that in your hand Dave?

Does anyone know what Dave means by “run” why did he say it in Russian?

Dave tweets you should of ran when you had the chance

Then he tweets a photo of cops outside of his pace and he says I guess I get what I deserve.

If you jump back onto the Sharron account it says we have a public statement on the Sevier County Utah incident earlier tonight.

A public statement is now being issued David “Dave” Hutchinson (this alias) Real name is still unknown had his home in Salina county Utah surrounded by Sevier county Sherrif’s Department of the Murder of Sharon Hutchinson (The ex-wife), Katie Hutchinson (The daughter), Aiden Hutchinson (The son), Rebecca Jewles (Sharon’s mother), and Franklin Jewles (Sharon’s Father) However when surrounded by police Dave pulled a Glock 19 mm from his back pocket and shot himself in the head. Dave was found that he ran a parody Teletubbies account that consisted of unusual, dark, tweets none of them relating the kids T.V. show He admitted to the murder of his wife Sharon and her family relatives all of Dave’s followers believed that this was all a hoax.

on the 12th Breaking news the man that shot himself in the head was not Dave he is still on the loose lock your doors. Teletubies updates wrote they will never find me with a creepy stick figure and a dead cricket.

on the 15th Sharon Teletubbies account says I offed Dave.

Then one of the Teletubbies updates page there was a Teletubbies song playing backwards was on Twitter.

Sharon Teletubbies account posted a video of this woman screeming.

Then Teletubbies Updates posted:

Gary is my real name it ends tonight my MPD is slowly killing me everyone in the basement is dead I can’t keep living like this.

Fuck this account. I seriously need psychological help. I have multiple personality disorder and the voices in my head are controlling me.

This was released in 2018

My name is Kevin Samson. I am the last living child of Gary Samson (you probably know him as David Hutchinson) and Sharon Samson. Both of my siblings, Katie and Aiden, were murdered by my dad. Police never caught him because everyone assumed this was a joke. I have no idea what he’s done with their bodies but all I know is that this has been extremely traumatic for me. Me and my dad both share birthdays. Today I turned 14 and my dad would have been 37. Our lives have been so secluded for the last 5 years that our home in Salina, Utah (Sevier County)

Some people believe this is true and that David (Gary) killed his whole family but his followers thought it was a joke and because people didn’t take it seriously he was able to get away with it. Thing is I can not fin any information on any of these people who supposedly lived in Utah. Now there is a chance that all the names had been changed and that is why my search is coming up flat. But honestly I think it is all fake.

Some link him to the serial killer Gary Sampson some others think that

Dave/ Gary post a photo of the missing Madeleine McCann who disappeared in 2007.

This post was posted and some people say it was decoded to say november 1st

Changed his profile to a bloody hand for a second

the teletubbies account also changed their location to this for a little bit “CU111717” meaning “see you november 17, 2017

Dave Hutchinson is also a sheriff in Hennepin County which I find curious that is the same county that George Floyd got murdered in and was head of the sheriff’s department at the time of George Floyd’s murder.

Overall tho there is no evidence of murders in Utah on those dates or with those names. So I am not convinced that this story is real I think it is a made-up story that has been turned into something way bigger than it really is.

Some people think that this is a real serial killer and this is his way of saying his real murders and getting his guilt out others say that this is a way of a murder admitting to his crimes in plain sight. No actual murders have been linked up to this The IP address has never been located.

November 1st was Sharonteletubbies last post

Now in this particular note from Kevin I want to note that he said Sharon Hutchinson and in the police report, it says Sharon Hutchinson

Gary Sampson no Samson was a killer who did murder his wife and 3 children he was he was sentenced to death and died in 2001 so a lot of people also think this was a play on from that.

So this does not add up so apparently the police took over the Sharon account and in the report it was Susan Hutchinson

And apparently Gary Samson legally changed his name to David Hutchinson. A lot of things just do not add up to make this a true story.

if you add all the numbers up in this note from this “son” Is 112 which would be November 12th also you think that any 14-year-old kid doesn’t have social media or know how to work an account? That seems odd.

I don’t know if this Youtube Channel with Dave Hutchinson. There is some creepy stuff on here but one video shows a man walking down to a cellar and you can hear a woman crying in pain.

That song that was being played backwards is called Dave’s Song by Whitney

Garysampson111117 tweets Thank you Kevin now the location for this pinged in Denver CO but again anyone can put where there location is anywhere the IP address has never been tracked

teletubiesupdates was sending people saying you’re on the list or YOTL with disturbing photos with an animal being hurt. and would also say CUI13D which said see you in 13 days.

TeletubiesUpdates account got suspended.

sharonteletubbies wrote teletubiesupdates was a joke until I made it all up as I went along there you go Einstein’s.

The actor who use to play Tinky Winky is named Dave Thomson he was actually fired after 70 episodes ‘interpretation of the role was not acceptable’

other thoughts that it could be based on David Mohney who was a man who recently got divorced he claimed his wife was an alcoholic who hit their children I won’t go too into it but he ends up killing her and injuring 2 kids and killing one of them before killing himself. This is very similar to the tweets it was in October that this happened but it happened in 2013 not 2017 so could it be based on it and just a game someone decided to do on Twitter for whatever reason I know some people have gotten too deep into this could it be based off David? Maybe? Some people think it is one of his surviving kids that made this Teletubies account. I really don’t know but what I do know is this particular twitter story was fake.

Ashlyn Black

25 years old from Layton Utah

May 24 2020

Tinder date

Layton Police Dispatch received a call just after 3 a.m. on Sunday from 24-year-old Ethan Hunsaker, who reported he had killed someone in his residence.

Officers responded to Hunsaker’s residence and found Black with multiple stab wounds to her torso. Despite attempts to revive her, she was pronounced dead on scene.

Hunsaker was then taken into custody without incident, and reported he met Black on the dating app Tinder late Saturday night.

According to a probable cause statement from Layton Police, Hunsaker told police he picked Black up from her home, they went to a bar together, then he took her to his home. He reportedly admitted that it was a normal date and they did not engage in an argument before he suddenly began choking her in an attempt to kill her, then grabbing a knife and stabbing her multiple times.

Police say when Hunsaker called 911, he asked that police shoot and kill him, and he later admitted to having daily thoughts of suicidal and homicidal ideations. He said that he has had these urges for a long time and just can’t control himself.

Hunsaker was booked into Davis County Jail on one count of murder, a first degree felony. Arresting officers have requested that no bail be granted “for the safety of the public.”

Hi-Fi Murders

April 22, 1974

Michelle Hansley 19 brand new and her jr manager standly Walker age 20 was there

4-5 Black males entered the shop The two known suspects in this murder are Dell and William Andrews

They pistol whipped Standly and drug him behind the counter but before they could lock up the store

Byran Courtney Nesbitt which goes by Courtney came into the store before the perpetrators could lock up. Byran said he came into the store to thank Standly for letting him use a parking spot while he ran his errors he also said he had a little crush on Michelle.

Michelle came out of the bathroom to find Standly and Bryan bleeding on the floor and 4-5 men standing over them.

Courntey also got pistol wipped and was drug behind the counter

The men took the hostages into the basement at gun point. Binding there ankles and wrist with electrical tape. But in a haze of trying to get everyone to the basement and out of site they forgot to lock the door.

orin and courtney survived the attack

In walks Standly Walkers Father William Andrews said he got Standly to call for his father and tell him he was in the basement.

Courtney Nesbitts mother came in looking for her son. She saw that his car was parked out fornt so she went in. I call this Parental instinct to know something is not right.

She noticed blood on the floor and turned to leave and Dell said that he grabbed her knocked her unconscious and shot her in the head.

Dell also testified that this is when his full rage began and he grabbed Michelle into the bathroom room and raped her. It was then he saw the drano. He poured the drano into cups and when asked when it was he said it was vodka and sleeping pills. That this was just to knock them out while they got away.

They started screaming and convulsing and had blisters on there mouths. Dell said that he saw it in a movie once and thought it would be a good way to kill them. But the hostages kept spitting it out and then they tried to tape there mouths shut.

William Andrews was also an accomplice

But the tape wouldn’t stick because of there blisters. When Standlys father refuesed to drink anymore drano they stuck a ball point pen into his ear and stomped on it.

They shot all 5 hostages in the head thinking they were dead.

Two vans loaded up with all of the electronics They also take $37,000 from the safe.

The bodies were discovered 3 hours later by Standly walkers brother and mother came to the store. They phoned police. Standly and Michelle was dead.

A phone tip came in saying they heard Willam Andrews talking about one day they were going to rob the hi-fi music shop and kill everyone inside. Police traced the call back to the Air Force base. They started searching in the dumpsters to see if anyone disposed of anything.

police search a dumpster in hill air force base there they found personal belongings of the victims

Byran Courtney Nesbitt and Orin survived these attacks The drano caused pediment brain damage to both of the victims

Carroll Courtneys mother died on the way to the hospital

The police noticed Dell lived at this air force base and he was already a suspect in another murder of him stabbing another man in the face They got a warrant to search his house there they found a rental agreement to a storage locker

Storage locker also contained a half of a bottle of drano and Michelles panties in it.

a get away driver Keither Roberts testifies against them he serves time in prision for Robery

Dale is exicuted in 1987 but Andrews appeal lets him live 5 more years

Andrews never pulled the trigger he said that was never the plan but he faces the death penelty reguardless. Andrews said there plan was to kill anyone That Dell did that all on his own but the tip that came in said otherwise

I personally think now days that wouldn’t happen if you didn’t pull the trigger you wouldn’t receive the death penalty

in 1992 Andrews is executed

Lori Hacking

Lori was an adopted child. Thelma and Herald Soares had taken her in after her parent’s divorce in 1987. The family had met in Brazil and, after the adoption, they relocated to Orem, Utah.

Mark and Lori were high school sweethearts. They found each other in Orem High School they loved each other and Lori’s family often looked at the two and wondered how they had gotten so lucky. Mark was like a son to them. They were both LDS both had gone on a mission. They waited for each-other to be married in the Bountiful Temple.

It is unclear that that Lori knew but his father said in an interview that he was actually discharged from his mission because he slept with a girl on his mission.

Lori had told her best friend that she was 5 weeks pregnant she also confided in some family and work friends they were all happy for her knowing that her and Mark have been trying to have a baby. Her mom was a little concerned knowing that they were now going to move soon to North Carolina to be closer to Mark’s Medical School they had gotten an apartment just 3 miles away from his schools so he could ride his bike back and forth to school. Her mom was concerned about her having a baby because they were moving and she was the only one working but happy all the same.

Lori went missing on July 19 2004,

Mark called her mom saying she went jogging this morning like she normally did but she hasn’t come back. He said they wouldn’t do anything for 24 hours. He said that he didn’t go running with her because he was going to go biking later that day and he felt so guilty that he didn’t didn’t go with her.

A woman who was also near the grove said she saw Lori jogging that day.

24 hours later A search party was formed but there was no sign of her or anything that belonged to her.

At this time her husband Mark was the only person of interest. Which in any spouse cases the spouse is always suspect #1

Theories are being thrown around. Both Mark’s family and Lori’s family deny any theories that Mark may of harmed Lori he loved her and was excited to move with her.

There was also theories that she was kidnapped by someone while she was up jogging.

Those were the two that were getting thrown around. There were 3 other people who went missing the same time as her around the same location. Which made people to believe there was a killer on the loose.

2 days after she disappears the cops are called to a hotel where Mark is running around naked screaming at the top of his lungs. Threatening suicide. His family thinks he was taking the blame of not going on the run with her to heart is blaming himself. His brother checked him into a metal psycractic

At this time Police get a warrant and search Loris house they also find out that Mark wasn’t accepted into school nor did he even apply to go to school. Their theory is that Lori found this out and confronted him about it and he killed her. They found a hunting knife by his bedside which he said he used in case of a burgerly. They also found a lot of things in boxes as well as a new mattress box when asked about this he said Lori had her period a few weeks ago and it was soiled so they bought a new one.

What do you think happened?

The Story: While in the mental hospital Mark confessed to his brothers that he killed his wife with a 22 revolver while she was sleeping in her bed. He then proceeded to cut up the mattress top and dispose of her body in a local dumpster and the mattress top in another. He then went to a local gas station where he was seen around 1am on surveillance buying cigarettes and constitutionally looking at his shaking hands. He then proceeded that morning to buy a new mattress. The shop owner can confirm that he bought a new mattress from them.

He then went ahead and called his mother in law saying he was concerned that his wife hadn’t come home or gone to work since that morning run she took. He goes to tell his mother in law that he already called the cops and they said that they would not do an investigation until 24 hours after she is missing. Lori’s mom wasn’t going to wait 24 hours and her, Mark and their friends and family started a search party.

Two days after is when Mark was reported screaming naked at a hotel but what the investigators found interesting was that he was wearing flip flops according to them that isn’t a sign of insanity and that was what he was trying to put a claim as insanity for killing his wife.

When he went to court he claimed he never said this information to his brothers but little did he know that the police had been digging through the land field with Cadaver dogs and sifting through 4 tons of trash. They were able to find some of Lori’s remains. and the mattress. They were never able to confirm or deny the fact that she was pregnant. They only found some of her remains and weren’t able to confirm this. Her OBGYN claimed she never saw him this doesn’t mean she didn’t see someone else but I wanted to note that this was something that couldn’t be confirmed.

At that time the lowest conviction for Murder was 5 years to life in prison for murder Mark was sentenced to 30 years in prison which I don’t think is enough for taking a life. He will be eligible for parole in 2025 Which sadly is going to hit us sooner than we think. Her mom started a fund to petition that the minimum for taking a life be raised. it is now called Lori’s law it changed the minimum from 5 years to 15 years to life.

Lori’s parents stripped her last name during her funeral her mom said We just felt that Mark obviously didn’t want her anymore”, . Lori’s married name was replaced with the Portuguese word “Filhinha”, which translates to “little daughter.”

Cami Sheppard

Cami was born in Thailand April 1, 1975 she and her twin brother Kim were adopted by our mom Erlene S Shepherd. Cami went to school and grew up in Holladay, Utah but sadly lost her mom to breast cancer at age 15. She loved nature,  the mountains and animals, her biggest love was birds..  Cami later on had 4 children 3 sons and 1 daughter, she also leaves behind a granddaughter and a grandson. 

Her sister received A voicemail from Cami stated her phone got stolen do not send text messages or anything.

2 weeks later Cami went missing she was a mother of four. Her sister said she went through some hard times but she never went a couple of weeks without contacting someone.

West Valley City police say around 12:30 p.m., they received a call from a crew working construction at 4100 South Redwood Road and the site of an old Kmart store.

April 6th Her body was found. Behind a vacant K-mart in a sewage drain, A survey crew stumbled upon a body in a sewage drain. The confirmed it was Cami. Police claimed that Cami went into the drain to keep warm. Her family doesn’t buy it. Her apartment is directly behind the spot where her body was found. If she was cold she would have gone home.

Her autopsy confirmed that there were no signs of a struggle. There is also not any information if the autopsy confirmed if there were drugs in her system or not.

April Her body was found. Behind a vacant K-mart in a sewage drain A survey crew stumbled upon a body in a sewage drain. The confirmed it was Cami. Police claimed that Cami went into the drain to keep warm. Her family doesn’t buy it. Her apartment is directly behind the spot where her body was found. If she was cold she would of gone home.

As painful as that was for Kristi, what one of the detectives then told her made the situation far harder to bear. The way the cops saw it, she had brought her death on herself. The detective suggested to Kristi that the 120-pound Cami had somehow lifted the 150-pound rusted lid off the drainage on her own and crawled down into the watery depths to get out of the cold.

Numb with disbelief, Kristi stared at him, realizing that the officers viewed her sister as one more addict whose drug-related death didn’t merit a serious investigation. Cami had always been afraid of water since as a very young child she’d fallen into a canal in Thailand and almost drowned. She could never have lifted the lid on her own. And why would she? Her apartment was a minute’s walk away.

“If we don’t have any leads,” the detective continued, “I’m just preparing you that we may have to close the case.”

The detectives got into their car and drove off. As the door shut, Kristi fell to her knees in shock, confusion and wordless rage at how they had blamed Cami for her own demise. “I was having such a hard time processing it all, that it even happened,” she said. “It was like it was just a bad dream.”

Cami’s sister says she has sent screenshots anytime someone logged into her sisters account and sent them to the WPD and she has also requested that her cellphone to be tracked and those requests have gone unheard. Her sister feels like they haven’t made her a priority at any point in this investigation.

Last year it is to beleived that that person who was logging into Cami’s go-fundme account and posting it to her facebook trying to collect money on Cami’s behalf. It continued from April to November The person who owns the gofund me was Brenda Combs. The gofund me has been taken down since but you can view her facebook here.

Now, in no way am I stating she is wrong we don’t always know what goes on behind the scenes of an investigation. If anyone has listened to Cold we know that there is a lot of things that the police don’t tell us or even lead us on to knowing because they can’t let the killer know they are on to them if they are ever going to make an arrest. Maybe they have mapped out her phone records and have found the ping as to where her last location was and where her phone was stolen and where the last person was who sent those facebook messages was. We don’t know this information maybe they have done nothing. But if anything that listening to cold has taught me is that there is a whole bunch behind the scenes stuff that we don’t get to know about.

We do know the detectives claim they have been investigating the case they went to the DA’s office to get a search warrant for cell phone records belonging to Cami Sheppard. This was denyed by the DA’s office

spokesperson for the police department said: “It is our understanding that Cami did not have her phone for two weeks prior to her disappearance. We consulted with the district attorney’s office regarding obtaining a search warrant for the phone and it was determined that seeking a search warrant would not be possible because although Cami Shepherd’s death is suspicious, there is not evidence that would classify it as a homicide or prove that a crime was commited that led to her death. Without proof of a crime, we are unable to get a search warrant.”

What someone does with a cell phone to track it is called Geo forensics I learned this at Def con among other things. (AKA exploding butt plugs and furry parties)

February 2nd her sister reported her missing this is two weeks after she received the voice mail.

The families private investigator theory is that she died and someone panicked and threw her body in there. Either she died and that person didn’t want to bring light onto themselves or there is the foul play here.

This is to believed to be the same person who had stolen her cell phone. But it is not confirmed.

Maybe they have mapped out her phone records and have found the ping as to where her last location was and where her phone was stolen and where the last person was who sent those facebook messages was. This is to believed to be a big key in her disappearance her family says.

What I find interesting is that she had been missing Since Febuary, but her posts didn’t start back up for the go fund me until her body was found in April. -November 2018 So if someone was trying to post and act like she was still alive why wouldn’t they do it back in Febuary not when a body has been discovered? Was this just a way to taunt the family?

According to her sister Cami’s life wasn’t easy Cami became pregnant at 16 by her boyfriend, with whom she had four children in succession by the time she was 21. Cami and her boyfriend fought constantly, their children raised by the man’s parents. She started using cocaine and crack in early 2000, then meth in 2003, when she also encountered problems with the law with a March 2003, third-degree felony forgery conviction in an Ogden district court. A marriage ended in divorce and shortly after she became homeless.

Cami Shepperd:

Cami was a loving mother who had been through some tough times but finally seemed like she was getting her life back on track when she went missing.

Cami was born in Thailand April 1, 1975 she and her twin brother Kim were adopted by Their mom Erlene S Shepherd.

Cami went to school and grew up in Holladay, Utah but sadly lost her mom to breast cancer at age 15. Her sister knew better than anyone her sister’s lengthy history of abuse, selling sex on the street, and years of meth use. She’d tried to be there when she could to support Cami’s struggles to pick herself up after each relapse.

Her sister knew better than anyone her sister’s lengthy history of abuse, selling sex on the street, and years of meth use. She’d tried to be there when she could to support Cami’s struggles to pick herself up after each relapse.

Finally, it seemed, with the help of a support network made up of family, friends, church members and nonprofits dedicated to the homeless and victims of sex trafficking She was making a turn in her life for the good.

She’d moved into her first apartment after more than a decade on the street and found work at the local Deseret Industries thrift store. And Cami had found a purpose: She had gone back to school to start the long journey to become a prosecutor for the state or federal government, so she could personally bring to justice the kind of men who had preyed on her when she was on the streets.

At the time of her disappearance, she had attempted repeatedly to get the police to draw attention to her concerns about sex trafficking. According to her family, they were ignored.

Her friends and family said it wasn’t unusual for her to not have contact with anyone for a few weeks but she always did contact someone within a few weeks to let everyone know she was okay. She was claimed to be missing on February 2nd 2018 and was found deceased on April 6 2018

Two weeks before she was reported missing her sister received this voice mail.

A voicemail from Cami stated her phone got stolen do not send text messages or anything.

West Valley City police say around 12:30 p.m., they received a call from a crew working construction at 4100 South Redwood Road and the site of an old Kmart store.

April 6th Her body was found. Behind a vacant K-mart in a sewage drain, A survey crew stumbled upon a body in a sewage drain. The confirmed it was Cami. Police claimed that Cami went into the drain to keep warm. Her family doesn’t buy it. Her apartment is directly behind the spot where her body was found. If she was cold she would have gone home.

Her autopsy confirmed that there were no signs of a struggle. There is also not any information if the autopsy confirmed if there were drugs in her system or not.

Last year it is to believe that that person who was logging into Cami’s go-fundme account and posting it to her facebook trying to collect money on Cami’s behalf. It continued from April to November The person who owns the gofund me was Brenda Combs. The gofund me has been taken down since but you can view her facebook here.

Cami’s sister says she has sent screenshots anytime someone logged into her sisters’ account and sent them to the WPD and she has also requested that her cellphone to be tracked and those requests have gone unheard. Her sister feels like they haven’t made her a priority at any point in this investigation.

Kristi was increasingly frustrated with West Valley detective assigned to her sister’s case. She was uncertain what if anything the police were doing. She worried that because of Cami’s history of drugs and sex work, her disappearance wasn’t taken seriously. “If I was missing, they would have looked harder,” she said. “I felt the family had to do more because the police were doing nothing.”

West Valley City Police Chief Colleen Jacobs disagreed. “Our detectives have been in areas she was known to frequent, shelters, homeless camps,” she said a few weeks into the time Cami that went missing. “We will investigate every avenue we have available to us.”

Now, in no way am I stating she is wrong we don’t always know what goes on behind the scenes of an investigation. If anyone has listened to Cold we know that there is a lot of things that the police don’t tell us or even lead us on to knowing because they can’t let the killer know they are on to them if they are ever going to make an arrest. My first thought on hearing this was maybe they have mapped out her phone records and have found the ping as to where her last location was and where her phone was stolen and where the last person was who sent those facebook messages was. We don’t know this information maybe they have done nothing. But if anything that listening to cold has taught me is that there is a whole bunch behind the scenes stuff that we don’t get to know about.

We do know the detectives claim they have been investigating the case they went to the DA’s office to get a search warrant for cell phone records belonging to Cami Sheppard. So, therefore, they are not able to legally search her phone. I am unsure if the families personal private detective has done any geo forensics.

What someone does with a cell phone to track it is called Geo forensics I learned this at Def con among other things…. (aka how to hack butt plugs and furry parties but that’s another story) They basically can ping where the last location of the phone was last located. It can also be used to ping other phones in that same area.

Kristi took her sister shopping at a nearby Deseret Industries thrift store with a voucher Cami got from the bishop at a local congregation. The sisters picked out a comforter, pillowcases and dishes for Cami’s new home. On the front door she hung a picture of Jesus Christ to mark her home as Christian. She shared the studio apartment with two cats, Hope and Faith, and occasionally an injured pigeon she would try to nurse back to health. Pigeons and doves were angels, she would tell her friends, and if they were close then she was safe.

She’d also signed up with Salt Lake Community College for computer basics classes, the only problem being that she didn’t have a computer to do homework on. Nevertheless, she was determined to fulfill her dreams of going to law school and prosecuting traffickers. And she had the perfect playing card, she’d tell friends, to show jurors that she had survived the world victims came from: a missing tooth in her bright, defiant smile, knocked out by an old boyfriend.

Momentos are left at a vigil for Cami Shepherd in West Valley City on Monday, April 16, 2018.

Adapting to life inside four walls wasn’t easy, said cousin Arlen Shepherd. She’d feel alone, leave for a day or two, then go back. Over time, she felt safe enough to sleep in her bed and know no one would hurt her.

Arlen Shepherd tried to get her to keep her home “a safe haven,” he said, and not let people in. But that ran contrary to the unwritten rule of the homeless, born out of the interdependency that life on the demands of the street, which is to always offer help when you can to others. So she’d let in someone she’d grown to trust, such as a homeless mother with a child. Word got around where she lived, however, and soon she complained to friends that people seeking a place to sleep would try to kick her door down if she didn’t let them in.

Cami’s determination to change meant she would try to do too much, Kristi worried. “She tried to stay clean, go to school and work and it would get stressful and she would cave,” Kristi said.

The pressures built up in November 2017, when she started dating a 42-year–old carpenter and neighbor. The carpenter requested anonymity out of concern over local traffickers possibly connected with Cami’s disappearance.

They watched movies and cooked meals at each other’s apartments. She’d bake and fry chicken, while he made soul food. He gave her a painting he’d done of a Chinese junk forging out to sea, waves crashing against a rocky shoreline. But Cami struggled with how to respond and act around “a regular guy,” as opposed to a “john,” several sex workers said she told them.

Her sister’s fate washed over her. It was as if her heart had been ripped from her chest.

As painful as that was for Kristi, what one of the detectives then told her made the situation far harder to bear. The way the cops saw it, she had brought her death on herself. The detective suggested to Kristi that the 120-pound Cami had somehow lifted the 150-pound rusted lid off the drainage on her own and crawled down into the watery depths to get out of the cold.

Numb with disbelief, Kristi stared at him, realizing that the officers viewed her sister as one more addict whose drug-related death didn’t merit a serious investigation. Cami had always been afraid of water since as a very young child she’d fallen into a canal in Thailand and almost drowned. She could never have lifted the lid on her own. And why would she? Her apartment was a minute’s walk away.

“If we don’t have any leads,” the detective continued, “I’m just preparing you that we may have to close the case.”

The detectives got into their car and drove off. As the door shut, Kristi fell to her knees in shock, confusion and wordless rage at how they had blamed Cami for her own demise. “I was having such a hard time processing it all, that it even happened,” she said. “It was like it was just a bad dream.”

In a text sent to ABC4, the spokesperson for the police department said: “It is our understanding that Cami did not have her phone for two weeks prior to her disappearance.  We consulted with the district attorney’s office regarding obtaining a search warrant for the phone and it was determined that seeking a search warrant would not be possible because although Cami Shepherd’s death is suspicious, there is no evidence that would classify it as a homicide or prove that a crime was committed that led to her death.  Without proof of a crime, we are unable to get a search warrant.”

The families private investigator theory is that she died and someone panicked and threw her body in there. Either she died and that person didn’t want to bring light onto themselves or there is the foul play here.

This is why having a if I go missing is so important and why this story hit me hard. I think everyone needs and if I go missing folder. If they had it in Cami’s case they could have accessed her Cell phone records and Social media and might have more of a lead than what they already have. Especially if there was possibly foul play involved

No suspects or person of interest have been named at this time this has been called an accidental suicide.

Jensen the families private detective said one can’t rule out that person yet. He said Cami Shepherd was either victimized two different times by two different people or victimized twice by the same person.

He still wants to find the person behind the cell phone text and is seeking information about who was with Cami on the night she disappeared.

Jensen wonders if there was some sort of an accident and someone panicked before dumping Shepherd’s body in the drain. If that’s the case, he says, the person would be smart to come forward immediately and offer an explanation.

“It’s just a matter of time that they’ll be caught, so they need to come forward and we can mitigate the damages,” he said.

Either some foul play was done here or just a freak accident or drugs were taken place. But these questions still remain. Who had Cami’s phone, why were they posting on her facebook? Who was with Cami when she died? Who moved her body into the train. And the most important question why?

What do you think happened Aubrey?

If she had been doing drugs and overdosed the person or people with her may of panicked and dumped her body int the drain in order to not get caught or blamed for her death. Cami was also known for her drug use if some type of drugs were being used it could of giving someone a reason to freak out when she overdosed a panic.

Or did something more sinister happen? With her acts of change kindness and her time and effort into the not for sale non-profit group did she happen to know something being in that lifestyle in her past did she know something someone didn’t want her to know? Was this foul play or an accident?

So there is something I think that needs to be said.

Across America, homeless women sell sex in no-tell motels or on the street to pay for a room night by night and for the drugs they need. They work in the back streets and blight-ridden thoroughfares of cities that are forgotten by city planners and the suburbs alike — unless you want to score drugs or pay for sex.

Because the women are housed, in the barest sense of the word, they are not included in the federal-government organized, national homeless census, Point in Time.

“They’re not counted, they’re not visible,” said Luciane Fangalua, who met Cami while chairing the Utah League of Women Voters’ human trafficking task force in early 2016, which sought to educate policymakers and legislators about the complex issue. “We don’t want them to exist. They’re an invisible group that we use and discard.”

These women are the forgotten casualties to be found at the intersection of homelessness, poverty, sexual violence and addiction. And it’s the desperate cravings of addiction that pull them into the world of trafficking, one fix at a time.They’re not counted, they’re not visible. We don’t want them to exist. They’re an invisible group that we use and discard. – Luciane Fangalua

As children victimized by traffickers and predators, only to be rescued by Tim Ballard’s Operation Underground Railroad, they attract both sympathy and support. But as adults, they age out of the compassion they would have received as a child.

“We have a great deal of compassion as a public for children who suffer neglect and violence, but we don’t necessarily reach all the victims to help them,” said Salt Lake City Councilwoman Erin Mendenhall, a longtime advocate for street sex workers, many of whom live and work in her district. “When we don’t reach them, the outcome for some is that they end up as an adult in sexual exploitation and human trafficking.”

And they could be anyone. Cami’s story is just one example of a daughter raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by a dedicated single mother. She had siblings who tried all they could to support her, no matter the choices she made. While she was never interviewed by a reporter, through extensive interviews with family, friends, street sex workers, advocates, counselors, law enforcement and attorneys, a portrait emerged of a complex, determined woman who refused to be broken by predatory men or the lifestyle some subjected her to in exchange for drugs.

Women and men who sell sex have many names. Words like “whore,” “hooker” and “prostitute” have been rejected by trafficking survivors and their advocates for the moralizing and criminalizing baggage they carry, while contemporary terms like sex worker are viewed by some as problematic, because they imply a freedom of choice, rather than coercion by others or factors like addiction and poverty.

“When you’re talking about sex work, there’s a moral, political and social history to it,” said University of Utah professor Annie Isabel Fukushima, a consultant for the national anti-trafficking network, National Freedom USA, after a reporter referenced issues surrounding language.

“Just call her Cami. That’s who she is. She’s Cami.”

In Salt Lake City, homeless and medical services outreach nonprofits estimate a population of between 500 and 600 street sex workers. In this twilight world, women like Cami appear on the street, then disappear, their fate unknown.

Nationwide, the number of sex trafficking survivors is at an “epidemic level” said Laura Lederer, a state department adviser on sex trafficking. Not that she has hard statistics to back her claim; for all the talk of so many politicians about the moral imperative of fighting human trafficking, the U.S. government has yet to fund a national trafficking study. The best she can point to, in order to substantiate her claim, is the rising number of homeless youth in the U.S.

A 2017 research study by the University of Pennsylvania and Loyola University, conducted at youth shelters in 13 cities in the U.S. and Canada, found 15 percent of homeless youth are sex-trafficked, with young women and LGBTQ youth particularly impacted. The National Network for Youth estimates that 4.2 million youth from ages 13 to 25 experience homelessness, which means that at minimum over 630,000 youth each year are victims of sex trafficking.

That’s the equivalent of a city the size of Boston.

Many are runaways, some fleeing abuse at home, others escaping violence at a foster care home. Many homeless youth simply age out of the foster care system and end up on the streets with nowhere to go. This is where invisible lives begin, with homeless youth sleeping in cars, couch-surfing, engaging in survival sex in exchange for a bed for the night, most haunted by the trauma of abuse they experienced as a child.

“Women use because of childhood and adolescent trauma,” said Matt Pierce, who for 18 months, until April 2018, did medical outreach in a supplies-stocked van in Salt Lake City several days a week for a local homeless nonprofit.

“Addiction and opiates, particularly heroin, numb the body and mind to old experiences,” but sex work only compounds existing trauma, he said.

Society, Lederer said, deals with homelessness, addiction and trafficking as separate issues.

“In reality these disparate issues are inextricably bound together,” said Lederer, who has interviewed more than 300 survivors in 22 cities, learning in the process that 84 percent were addicted. Cami’s story, she said, “is emblematic of the complexity of this problem,” in that for her, as for so many, all these problems intersect and start to spill out into public view, with tragic consequences.

“Survivors tell you everybody likes a nice victim, no one likes an angry, devastated person,” Lederer said. “These aren’t pretty stories. It’s the opposite of ‘Pretty Woman.’ And it’s very hard to put them back together again. We just have to do better. There’s just so many people we are failing.”Survivors tell you everybody likes a nice victim, no one likes an angry, devastated person. These aren’t pretty stories. … We just have to do better. There’s just so many people we are failing. – Laura Lederer, a state department adviser on sex trafficking

Victims and survivors of sex trafficking come from every strata of society, from the impoverished to the wealthy. Traffickers hang out at the homeless shelter, the corner store, or the suburban mall, always looking “for someone in need of something,” said Utah Attorney General veteran trafficking prosecutor Russell Smith. He related the story of a Nevada FBI agent who, despite having his daughter’s boyfriend to dinner, had no idea the 19-year-old was grooming his 17-year-old daughter for prostitution. The two first met when he struck up a casual conversation with her at a mall.

Traffickers can range from a boyfriend or a roommate who uses drugs and coercion as a means of controlling their victim, through a solo operator illegally running out of a motel, a nail salon or a massage parlor — what law enforcement call commercial sex operations, typically staffed with women held by fraud and coercion. From there it extends to gangs running women on a few streets or out of hotels through online sex ads, to highly organized international criminal operations that traffic women from one country to another.

Traffickers, whether alone or in groups, exploit vulnerabilities, and they’re not always male. Smith recalled one woman who loved to brag about how she had “used a Utah citizen’s disability as a way to manipulate them into performing commercial sex acts.”

Victims-in-waiting, Smith said, “are not hard to find.”

“It impacts people across gender, class, ability and background,” Fukushima said. “It touches people regardless of their income and capital.”

If Cami is a poster-person for sex trafficking victims, she’s also somewhat unique in her determination to bring traffickers to justice and emblematic of the challenges survivors face in trying to tell their stories.

For years she tried to report her traffickers to police departments and state investigators when the majority of survivors out of fear or mistrust would have nothing to do with reporting a crime. She wrote an anonymous article in early 2016 about her life for an educational study on trafficking prepared by nonpartisan policy group Utah League of Women Voters that went to Utah legislators. She held a public event on March 2016 in Liberty Park to tell people about trafficking. But trauma, meth-induced paranoia, and other issues derailed her attempts to give law enforcement information that could lead to arrests.

“The only reason nothing gets done is that we are drug addicts and homeless,” Cami wrote in an April 2017 Facebook post.

If she couldn’t get cops and prosecutors to bring them down, she vowed to become an instrument of justice for other trafficked women. So she decided to go to school and eventually prosecute the men herself.

One cop who worked with Cami and believed she was a victim of traffickers was Salt Lake City Police Sgt Michele Ross. She was convinced that behind the paranoia and incoherence that dogged Cami’s repeated attempts to get justice, there lay a traumatic history of sex trafficking. “For one person to be so persistent, makes me believe there was something to it,” Ross said. “You just don’t see it very often. There has to be something there.”
