I’ve gotten a couple of disparaging comments recently on this blog. I traced the IPs. One post pointed back to an in-law.
I don’t deserve to take this abuse. Not from in-laws. Not from neighbors. Not from people who have nothing better to do with their time but gossip on the web. Do not fuck with me anymore. I’ve had it.
November 2, 2010. I’m at the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Evidence Room to retrieve my possessions that were seized under warrant five months earlier. The Deputy and I load up my car. He says that’s all he’s got for me. I’m still missing my cedar chest. The one that has all my kids photo albums in it. Vacation photos. Photos of our holidays, birthdays and special occasions. I hadn’t seen it since Janet died.
I ask him if they had my chest. He goes in and calls the Detective. The Detective says they have it. Oh god, I feel relief. He instructs the Deputy to release it to me. I learned that the Detectives never opened the chest. I learned that Chris Volbrecht had the chest, and that she gave it to the Detectives, and I quote, “for safekeeping”.
Chris Volbrecht lives next door to me.
I get home and unload the car. I move the chest into my bedroom and open the lid. On the top of the stack is the photo that you see on this post. It’s from my college days. Yeah, that’s me shooting the moon. Big deal.
Chris had gone through my chest of family photos. I felt supremely violated. She invaded my privacy. And that’s not all.

…the investigation is still ongoing, while the coroner released the Body and has been flown back to Ohio for funeral services, this case is far from over and those kids are not safe if they return to the area with their father.
…Most of us while greiving (sic) over the loss of our dear friend, fear for those kids even if the father is found to have nothing to do with this.
His mental problems and verbal abuse alone have those children terrified of him.
My prayers go out to them, but we as Janet’s friends must step forward and do what we can to protect those children. Many of us have given statements to the police about what we have been told by Janet or have witnessed, so any of you out there that have knowledge about this- I urge your to report it to the lead investigator on this case. He already has many letters and statements so you will not be alone in your testimony nor will you have to fear that “he” will find out what you said and why.
Please do the right thing for these kids…please!

I am…making a plea for the childrens (sic) safety in this very sad and dangerous situation! The more of us who come forward – the better off the children will be- in this instance I don’t feel this is gossip for a blog- it is real and the children need to be protected from their father whether or not he did anything to Janet- if you knew what some of us know you would be reaching out in every way possible.

I will protect the kids from Ken anyway I can…I will stand by every word I have written here! Even if Ken was not the cause of Janets death- the kids are in danger of returning to California with their father.
Janet used to complain about Chris trimming the plants in our front yard. Janet wasn’t pleased Chris was intruding on our property. She remarked to me that Chris was a “snobbish rich bitch”. Janet was right about that.
