This morning I posted some information by accident that goes with Patrice's case on this thread. I guess I should learn not to update the board at 6 a.m. wink

Please do not think that Jones is related to the disappearance of Kristin. That was my boo boo. lipsrsealed

xx Kristin Smart Update
« Reply #19 on: Jan 24th, 2005, 1:13pm »

Dennis reports that he hopes to begin walking in about 10 days. Several of us helped donate some cash to the much needed banner last week. This is just an important thing that it has to be promoted.

I will post another update as it comes in. We are all excited about this and continue to support Dennis 100%. We will find Justice for Kristin.

« Reply #20 on: Jan 26th, 2005, 10:30am »

My friend Jim from Sar Search and Rescue has stepped forward to assist the Smart Family and Dennis with the banner that is in production. We must tell Jim how much we appreciate this. It has helped us very much.

We are anticipating Jim and the dog coming to the event, but we are not 100% sure yet. Our group has alloted time for the end of April in order to attend the March. We are just so excited about this and all those officials and concerned citizens who are coming out of the woodwork to help us get this thing off the ground.

Thanks again to JIM cheesy wink cheesy

xx Kristin Smart & Kristin Modaferri Board
« Reply #21 on: Feb 10th, 2005, 12:10pm »

I wanted to let everyone know that if you had previously visited the Kristin Smart/Kristin Modaferri Board, that it's back up and running. It has been vacant for a little while.
I went over to help Dennis out and we are slowly building the board back up. We must give them credit because had it not been for them, I would have gotten Carrie's board started. Please visit if you can.

SATURDAY--FEB 12th.

Today is sort of a milestone in that at around 4:00pm this afternoon I was able to take the first of many, many steps in an effort to find Kristin.

I was hoping to start earlier in the day but the post office had my digital camera (eBay) and the mail wasn't delivered till just after 3:30pm

I made my way to the Santa Maria intersection of S.Broadway and Betteravia which are two major streets in Santa Maria and with the assistance of a nice woman named Gloria (she was pumping gas at the Shell station), I was able to have the photo to the right snapped.

The photo is me as I am about to take my first step in this long march and I am actually speaking with Denise Smart as I take the step.

I implore my readers to please remember Kristen Modafferi. Without her - none of this even comes close to happening. Kristen Modafferi vanished in 1997 while on vacation in San Francisco and I have spent a very long time trying to find her as well. Part of my reason for doing this very public 'walk' is because I want people to remember Kristen Modafferi.

Within no more than about 8 minutes of walking I came across a great bunch of people holding a benefit BBQ in a parking lot for 24 yr old Joey Valdez who passed away Feb 7th after having a seizure while sleeping. It is a sad story and his friends were pitching in to raise funds for burial expenses for Joey.

I purchased a meal to help the fundraiser and began answering their questions about Kristin. They all knew about her and some even knew of the exact home in Arroyo Grande. (AG is about 14 miles north of Santa Maria).

User Image
Dennis with friends of Joey Valdez at the 2000 block of South Broadway in Santa Maria.

One of the reasons why so many people still remember Kristin is because Arroyo Grande is a small town and its most prominent attorney is James Murphy. As fate would have it - his office is just don the street from Susan Flores's residence and for years now - right on the front lawn - Jim Murphy has erected a very large billboard with Kristin's photo on it. Everyone has seen that billboard and most everyone realizes that Susan Flores is just up the street.

I then made my way about another mile and half down Broadway and then turned around and headed back.Things went very smooth. There was not alot of pedestrian traffic moving about - the S. Broadway stayed heavy with traffic.

It was pretty late in the day so I only was able to walk about 5 miles. Tomorrow I am headed to the Los Angeles area to meet with the Smarts so I will resume my walk Monday morning and I will be right outside the courthouse where the Michael Jackson case is taking place.

SUNDAY-- FEB. 13th.

It is still very early in my walk, but I received a call today from someone connected to the 'biker crowd' here in California. They told me they want to support Kristin and would it be OK if hundreds of bikers showed up at the rally and join me in the final mile in Arroyo Grande. The person I spoke with is confident that hundreds of area bikers would love to take part in the outpouring for Kristin Smart and Kristen Modafferi.

The offer sounded great because it indicates that we could be off to a fast start when it comes to having a large turnout.

User Image
I met Kristin's mom, Denise, in LA this morning and drove with her up Hwy 101 back to Santa Maria. She will be at the courthouse with me tomorrow as I take my banner for the first time to the world media outside the Michael Jackson courthouse. The banner will be like a gigantic Valentine's day card for Kristin.

On the way up from LA - we stopped in La Conchita, California which is where all the mudslides were and got to meet two of the neighbors, John Franco and a great man named 'Nick the Greek' who is in his 80's but had the energy of a 45 year old.

Seeing this disaster up close was humbling. John shared something interesting with us: The major slide happened around 1:00pm - but John was standing outside his home looking up at the mountain at 11:00am and he could literally see gigantic boulders and trees just tumbling down the hillside.

Here is the real odd part. The State Troopers were on the scene with orders not to let anyone in or out of that very small town. (La Conchita takes no more than about 15 seconds to drive past on the 101. I think there is just the one exit.) Anyway - the trooper would not allow John to leave and within an hour or so the mountain came down.

I have no idea if this is exactly accurate - but that is what he told us. Denise had her camera with her and when she returns to her home in Stiockton on Tuesday - she will email them to me and then I will post them here. For now - these images I took from the web.

MONDAY--FEB. 14th

This day has been on my mind for quite awhile - but right off the bat, two things happened that I never expected. First - serendipity intervened and allowed Kristin's mom, Denise, to be in town for the first day of my walk 'at the courthouse'.

Denise was in LA and had a long grueling drive back home to Stockton but decided to stay over with me and attend today's events at the courthouse.We get to the courthouse just before 9:00am only to learn the Michael Jackson had arrived at about 8:00am.

I am trying not to exaggerate - but when we arrived - there were about 40 fans mulling around and I would guess about 25-35 cops - I may be wrong but I am trying to be as accurate as possible.

Whatever the amount - it was total overkill for the event. The crowd eventually grew to about 125 -135 people, but again, it is hard to say. What was very obvious was just how well everyone behaved. You got the sense that one or two officers alone could have easily managed the crowd.

The very first person we met was Officer Paul Flores. Boy! That was weird. We all acknowledged the irony but quickly were able to get passed it as Officer Flores said his surname is very common out here.

User Image

Unbelievable! The very first person Denise and I meet is Paul Flores. Officer Paul Flores, that is!

Another person we met was Courtney Trisler. Courtney worked for President Ronald Reagan for over 30 years on his ranch. We exchanged phone numbers and someday soon I look forward to having lunch with him just to hear some of his stories.

User Image
Courtney Trisler went to school with Ronald Reagan and ended up working for him on the ranch for 30 years.

As far as getting the word out - Denise and I did TV interviews with KCOY and KSBY, which are the local stations as well as Univision. A little while later we were approached by Grace Wong, the producer for Court TV. When she approached us she really knew very little about Kristin but she took a very genuine interest and it was good that Kristin's mom was able to be here today.

Grace said she would like to have us do a segment with Nancy Grace and she would contact us when arrangements can be made.

User Image

The Jackson trial was supposed to break for lunch around noon but word came out that they were going to skip lunch and just go straight till 2:30pm. So- most of the day was spent just waiting for the court to let out.

Eventually, Jackson walked about 30 yards from the courthouse doors and acknowledged his fans. He did so in a manner that was respectful to both his fans and the court. He flashed the peace sign out of the car window and he was gone.

This all took less then a minute - so - there was lots of standing around and getting to know people in the crowd.

At Betteravia and Miller streets I stopped by the Tone Zone - a small Personal Gym located in a strip mall near Target. Outside the Gym an elderly man in his 70's approached me and began asking me questions about the case.

It was real nice - he paused for a moment and said, "Dennis, you have a lot of supporters." I knew Denise needed to hear that so I called her and I could tell it hit a nerve.

TUESDAY--FEB. 15th.
(Kristin Modafferi vanished 6/23/1997)

Today I did my most walking thus far. I logged in about 12 miles and was feeling the effects for the rest of the day. Again - I headed strait down South Broadway and I can begin to to where people are becoming familiar with me as the amount of people beeping their horns and giving me the thumbs up is rising. The fist day out about 3 cars beeped their horns - yesterday it was about 25-30. A man named Frank approached me just to see he saw Kristin's story on the news that morning and he wanted to just show his support and he told me to tell the Smarts he is thinking about them. I was also approached by another man who pulled his car along side me and rolled the window down. He wanted me to know if he could ever be of assistance to just give him a call. He left his number and drove off. I knew when I came out here from NC that this was going to be a momentum- building walk and it is surely starting to happen.

User ImageMost of my day...

The MJ trial was put on hold today since Jackson headed to the ER instead of the courthouse due to Flu-like symptoms. I did walk by the courthouse again and it was very quiet. Something Coke vending machine caught me eye and I thought it was somewhat amusing.

An enterprising lawyer whose office sits right across from the courthouse went and had this huge vending machine installed to take advantage of the Jackson crowds. I don't think he will turn a profit because the crowds are very small, but maybe he/she will.

User Image

While there, however, I ran into a woman who is furious with Santa Maria DA Tom Sneddon - he's the guy going after Michael Jackson.

She may have a good reason to be angry.

Ann was recently attacked by an ex-boyfriend and he stabbed her eight times. He was arrested and did jail time and then was let out. So, Ann is in church one day and is horrified to see the guy sitting in the same pew as her.

She wanted him arrested for stalking her but Sneddon refused to prosecute. She showed me the letter with Sneddon's stationary where he wrote to her saying no charges would be filed.

Ann literally began crying in the parking lot within yards of the Court TV setup. Dianne Dimond was literally taping her show when Ann became very upset. A court TV technician asked her to be quiet and that set Ann off.

Ann is furious that so much time, manpower and resources are being spent on this case which only pushes people like her into the background.

She kept on saying "Kristin is so much more important than the Jackson case'" She repeated that about ten times through her anger and tears.

User Image
Dennis with 'Ann' outside the courthouse. She was stabbed eight times by her ex and is furious with DA Sneddon for now pressing charges on additional stalking incidents by the same guy against her.
Outside the High School
Today I walked from about 11:30 til 4:00pm and then headed to my job where I got off at midnight.

Wednesday I will not be walking since I have another job interview to attend and to be honest - I could use the day to recover from the shock of all this walking.

Finally - I received this email from Coast News "I am the managing editor of the Coast News which covers the Arroyo Grande and and five cities area. I would like some information or a press release concerning the 1000 mile walk you are taking to promote further investigation of the disappearance of Kristen Smart. Thank you, Theresa-Marie Wilson."

WEDNESDAY--FEB.16th

All fans of Kristin had a good day today. First, I was contacted by Teresa-Marie Wilson of Coast news and she will be running a story in her paper next week. Her coverage area serves the Five Cities area of central California which includes Arroyo Grande, (home of the Flores), as well as Shell Beach, Pismo Beach, Avilla Beach and San Luis Obispo. So that is good news for Kristin as the entire region will come to learn of this walk.

Secondly - for most of you - this will be the first time you have heard the name of Beverly Chase. I spoke with her today for the first time myself and she is major 'on fire' for Kristin. More than that - she lives in Arroyo Grande and has no qualms about putting her name out there. She is not afraid of the Flores one bit.

I asked for her permission to mention her name here and sure said she didn't hesitate one bit; "go for it', Dennis.

Beverly will be printing flyers about the walk and will be putting them up all over her town of Arroyo Grande. She and her friend will be coming to Santa Maria this Saturday to walk a few mile with me - so Sunday I will have some photos for you.

Beverly knows a young woman who once was given a ride home by Paul Flores once years ago (before Kristin vanished) and she says Paul scared her and gave her a very heard time just to get out of the car.

Beverly has been in AG since she was 2 and she knows alot of people. In the coming weeks I will share with you whatever knew info I come to learn.

After speaking with Beverly, I spoke with Denise and she was real happy to hear of Bev's dedication. As of this writing - I have arranged for Beverly to call Denise just to say 'hello'.

I did not walk today because I had a job interview as well as - to be honest - I was a bit worn out. The day off has been good for me.

Do you want to help Kristin and her familyhuh The best thing people locally or from anywhere that can be there is to register for the rally.

Your Commitment

Attend the 'Formal Request' rally on May 14th, 2005 (Kristin will have been missing for 3,272 days by then) in Arroyo Grande, Ca. where we will ask LE to obtain a 2nd Search Warrant to get on Susan Flores' property for the purpose of digging up the back yard to see if Kristin is there.

Bring a shovel - all 3,272 people will raise the shovel above their heads in a quiet 'moment of silence' for Kristin.

Contribute $10 to help cover expenses.

Bring at least one friend with you.

you can register at the following link: http://www.sonofsusan.com/id100.htm

I do believe my dear friend our own Jill will be at that rally, I don't think she would miss it for the world.

I am trying to give everyone a glimpse inside this very important march as best as I can, sort of like you can see whats happening. It is still very early into the march but I think the fire is already starting to heat up in the kitchensmileysmiley We are all committed to bringing all our missing loved ones home, no matter what it may take. Please join us!!!

While we are waiting for another update from Dennis from the march, please let me remind all the members that both Kristin Smart and Kristen Modafferi do have a message board,please feel free to stop by at anytime and just say hello The Kristin Smart & Kristen Modafferi Message Forum can be reached by clicking http://findkristins.conforums.com/index.cgi

I will be back with more pictures and more updates on the March as I get them.

FEBRUARY 17th

(Please remember Kristen Modafferi also) It poured today. I got in about 13 miles up and down South Broadway. The highlight of the day was when I received a call from the Coast News editor T. Wilson. She was calling to say that when she showed up for work there was an envelope that was slid under the door with no return address on it. The contents of the envelope was a photocopy of a bench warrant for my arrest. I had this info up previously on my website and just reposted an updated version on the homepage.

She placed a call into Flores attorney Jeff Radding who thus far has declined to return her call.

One thing I felt good about was the 'thumbs up' sign from a woman in a parking lot at least 50 yrds away from me. That told me that even from that distance - people could read the banner.

I again walked past the courthouse - but there was no one around.

Rain and Michael Jackson illness drive media away.

I heard a voice calling me from behind. It was Curt Stotts and he rolls up to me wanting to know if Scott Peterson is involved. I told him that back in 1996, a letter campaign was doen by law enforcement to about 600 students at Cal Poly. The letter asked people to come forward if they knew anything at all about Kristin's case. Scott Peterson received one of those letters but he just blew it off. He was not alone in that department, however, as a lot of students just didn't bother responding.

I met Curt Stotts along S. Broadway and wondered aloud about Scott Peterson's involvement.

I wanted to say that I am thinking of Kristin Smart today on her birthday. How could I ever forget the lady's birthday one of my dearest friends is searching for. As I've said before to Ms. Culberson, I will say to you all tonight (Kristin included). Some of us have a mission in life. My mission is to find these people, or do my best trying. I'll never let you down, even if I could.

Thinking of you always.
