Three Years

Three years ago, Shanon Christina Stoy printed a libelous article about me regarding the abduction of my neighbor’s daughter.

If you Google my name, three years later, her article is  one the top hits. If you google my name with my city, there are countless mentions in internet forums with the wildest speculation imaginable about me. While she herself didn’t make those threads or posts, that is in a sense fruit from the poisonous tree. Threads based on erroneous information that originated with her are her burden and her responsibility.

I’ve made accounts at several forums to share my side of things, which it turns out was almost unneeded. It turns out that Blinkoncrime and Shannon Stoy are well known in the internet crime discussion community, and she isn’t taken seriously.

The forum that she associates with, Scared Monkeys, has by far the most illogical and functionally inept posters. I’ve tried to contact them and make an account there. Three years later my account is still awaiting activation. It’s telling that spouters of lies prefer to do it in an arena that they can control.

So three years later, all of this still follows me around on the internet. And it will continue for decades, likely. Anyone who searches my name will immediately read libel by Stoy, followed by untold speculation and ridiculous accusation, all a result of her libel.

She has the power to change some of that. She could either remove the article, which was my original request. She could publish a correction, which was my subsequent request. She could print the letter from police that I sent her directly regarding her “reporting”, which was my last request.

Any of those would go a long way toward mitigating the damage she’s done to my reputation. The albatross hung around my neck was placed there by her, and it’s her responsibility.

The answer to the question, “Does Shannon Christina Stoy care that her libel will follow a man for decades?” is answered by her refusal to take any action. She doesn’t.

Thanks lady. Thanks a lot. The world needs unabashed liars, I guess.

Ebola and Blinkoncrime

I listened to an interesting piece this weekend about the reporting of the Ebola outbreak. An infectious disease specialist commented that even articles that are accurately reporting on the outbreak can do damage with sensationalized headlines.

EBOLA OUTBREAK LIKELY TO GO GLOBAL

 

While this is technically true, as the outbreak might spread in isolated instances on a global level,it harkens much more apocalyptic images. It is extremely unlikely, statistically almost impossible, for the virus to hit the average person in the United States. But headlines like that elicit fear and emotion from the reader. As they are designed to. The infectious disease specialist was commenting that reporting like that has no benefit to society and is actually simply harmful.

 

It reminded me of Christina Stoy and her sensationalized website. Writing in the most inflammatory and insinuating way possible, she elicits fear,emotion, outrage and suspicion from her readers, where in actuality there is little foundation for alarm. She tagged my name, along with the name of my spouse (both of whom were praised by police for our Good Samaritan-ism and volunteerism while searching for a lost child) along side Jerry Sandusky and Jordan Van Der Sloot. Shock pseudo-journalism at its finest.

In my case, she even added false information to the mix to further the suspicion. I had a good laugh as I listened to the interview, thinking to myself that if Christina Stoy were reporting on Ebola, the message would be clear that the world is ending we’re all going to die from infection.

 

Consecutive Days of Lying by Christina Stoy

Christina Stoy printed a libelous article and interview about me. When I approached her about it, she said Name one lie. Name one mistruth that is not an opinion, if it can be substantiated, I will absolutely correct it without pause.”

However, when I corrected her and itemized her lies and libel, she responded not by correcting any of it. Rather, she refused to publish my correction and left it all in place.

While Shannon Stoy has repeatedly said she offered me every chance to comment on her site, the itemized post correcting the inaccuracy of her article was never published. Having an idea of the moral character of Ms. Stoy, I took a screen shot of as it awaited approval by Shannon Stoy. Scrolling through the comments section to July, the correction of her distortion of publicly released documents remains unposted.

S Christina Stoy, the Liar

One of the lies told by Christina Stoy in her interview and article about me, is that publicly released documents contradict the timeline of my morning while searching for my abducted neighbor.

She used this pdf, released by Tucson Police :

to indicate that I was identified away from the area I was searching. This is an insinuation that while I said I was searching for an abducted girl, I was actually loitering in an alleyway. Shannon Stoy has repeatedly said that I was identified by an eyewitness in public documents.

Blink : “Really- you feel the fact that a witness, who is on record asking you to leave from being perched on his electrical box, the exchange of which was released publicly, is protecting an investigation?”

Anyone can read the pdf and see that no witness is on record asking me to leave being perched on an electrical box. Eventually, it’s so glaring a mistake, that she had to address it.

Blink : “Nathan, I defer to my sources on this one, you are correct, it is not in the report. I am going to assume from your comment about “not reading it in the report” that you were never told that Mr. Lutzelberger described you, from sitting on the electrical box, and I note that you do not deny it. I am not suggesting that is anything nefarious, btw.”


After hounding her to correct her mistakes, she finally admitted that despite her claims that she was simply reporting on “PUBLICLY RELEASED DOCUMENTS” (she capitalizes that for emphasis), she actually wasn’t. She was reporting something that IS NOT (my capitalization, for emphasis) in publicly released documents. She has added details. Now, I spent a good amount of time contesting that detail, because I was never perched on an electrical box.

Then one day, it occurred to me, that eyewitness lives in my neighborhood. Maybe he did identify me as a man perched on his electrical box. Maybe I was wrong!

I doubted it, but it was possible. I walk my dog past his house pretty regularly. One night, driving home from work, I detoured and stopped. The next thing I knew, I was walking to his door and ringing the bell.

After a little explanation, he said “Of course that wasn’t you, I’ll never forget that guy.”

I asked him if he had identified me to Officer Robinson. Turns out, he hadn’t seen me talking to Officer Robinson. He certainly didn’t ID me as the man he told to get out of his alley.

He wanted to know why Shannon Stoy hadn’t called him. Then he said I should tell her to call him, as he had some things he’d like to say to her. I had a good laugh at that.

So when Shannon Stoy says I was identified by an eyewitness perched on an electrical box in an alley, in publicly released documents, she actually means that I wasn’t.

Whatever her source is, it contradicts the account of the eyewitness, and the information in the publicly released documents. I’d be very interested to find out who her source is that informed her of a conversation and identification that never happened. I won’t speak for Mr. Lutzleberger, but I got the impression he wasn’t happy that she’d put words in his mouth.
