Freshwater: The police report

| 127 Comments

I’ve received a copy of the police report on the incident described in Dumpster diving for docs. It is a “found property” report, not a criminal complaint. The report contains a 3 page typed account of the incident by Don Matolyak, Freshwater’s pastor.

The main message of the circulating story I described in my earlier post–the mysterious appearance of new evidence from the district via a cloak and dagger route–is confirmed by Matolyak’s statement, but a number of details differ. I’ll list them below the fold, based on Matolyak’s statement in the police report.

1. The events occurred the evening of Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb 2 and 3, not Feb 4 and 5.

2. Freshwater was out of town when he got a voicemail telling him about the materials, and so was not involved in retrieving them. Nor was Hamilton involved in the actual retrieval of the materials; he came into the incident later, on February 3.

According to Matolyak’s account he received a call from Freshwater the evening of Tuesday, February 2. Freshwater was out of town, and told Matolyak that he had received an anonymous message on his voicemail, the caller apparently trying to disguise his identity. According to Matolyak’s account, the caller claimed that

”… there was more information-materials for John. They would be found in a plastic bag by a garbage can at the corner of Mt. Vernon Avenue and Division Street. We assumed this was the person who sent the previous letter in the mail to John & School Superintendent, Steve Short.

The corner of South Division Street and Mt. Vernon Avenue is near the high school and middle school, less than half a mile away from them. It’s open terrain, with a city park with softball fields in the northeast quadrant, the high school baseball and soccer fields in the southeast quadrant, a farm field (now snow covered, but with corn or soybeans in season) in the southwest quadrant, and a batting cage and miniature golf course in the northwest quadrant.

The “previous letter” phrase refers to an anonymous letter sent to Freshwater and Superintendent Short shortly before the last session of the hearing was due to resume in January but which was postponed after 2.5 hours of attorney conferences. It turns out that anonymous letter was the stimulus for the postponement of the hearing that day.

3. In picking up the materials Matolyak was accompanied by a man named Charles Fisher. According to Matolyak’s account, Fisher accompanied him at Freshwater’s suggestion:

John asked me to get Charles Fisher and go check this out since he [Freshwater] was in Dover [Ohio]. Charles is very trustworthy and has his Conceal Carry (sic) permit so he would be armed in case of trouble.

Now think about that last sentence for a moment. That’s an indication of the paranoia that is characteristic of the conspiracy theorists in this affair. And contrast it with another passage from the next paragraph of Matolyak’s statement:

As I drove to the home of Charles Fisher I questioned whether we should contact the police. I wondered if we would be facing some kind of danger as the person who did this would be expecting John Freshwater to be the one to follow up on the voice mail message. But I decided it wouldn’t be necessary to contact the police because we were just on a factfinding mission.

He takes an armed escort, but decides not to contact the cops.

4. The materials were not in a dumpster at the high school, but were by a trash can in an area near it, in an “old black computer bag” inside a plastic bag. On top of the bag was a letter addressed to Freshwater. The police report does not contain the contents of that letter. The bag contained a 3”-4” stack of papers and a “large number of photographs of items from John’s room.” It also contained three stopwatches, a whistle, and $45 in cash.

5. Fisher and Matolyak took the bag and contents to Matolyak’s church, where they rummaged through the materials, describing them to Freshwater on the telephone and photographing them. “One letter was placed in a sealed envelope and left for Pastor Paula Powell to scan and E-fax to Kelly Hamilton when she got to the office Wednesday morning.” Matolyak then locked the material in his office.

6. One Wednesday evening, Matolyak, Hamilton, and Freshwater went through the materials. Freshwater identified all but about 300 photographs as having come from his room. Fisher came by and showed them the photographs he had taken at the original scene and later.

7. Hamilton then informed the others that they might need to make a police report. Hamilton and said he’d instruct them later on what to do.

The complaint/report was made by Matolyak at 1536 on Thursday, February 4, and notes that the PD took custody of the property and place it in evidence for safekeeping. I presume that means in the PD evidence room. Steve Short, Superintendent of Schools, was notified of the report number.

This is now officially past bizarre. It has mysterious phone calls, midnight missions with an armed escort, and hundreds of photographs and a stack of documents in a black bag in a parking lot. (Incidentally, someone should tell Mr. Fisher that a Concealed Carry permit in Ohio is not a license to act as an armed private security guard, and he should get competent legal advice before depending on his permit like that again.)

In contrast to the earlier story I described, there was no dumpster diving or discarding of relevant documents. This now looks more like the documents (assuming they are genuine, which seems now to be a safe assumption) were stolen from the school, and that almost certainly by an insider.

Last academic year I had Lauri Lebo out to Kenyon to speak to my class about her experience in Dover, PA, during the Kitzmiller trial, experience she chronicled in her excellent book The Devil in Dover. Mt. Vernon is now in worse shape than Dover, I fear.

I expect that the Board of Education meeting this evening will be interesting.

This is going to be even more interesting. Point remains, he burned the kids.

The validity of the “so-called evidence” is tainted since it was “found” and kept for 2 days prior to contacting the police and turning it over to them. Documents could have been added or taken from the “old computer bag” without anyone knowing it.

I further find it interesting that my user ID, seabiscuit, was used to make a comment on the blocked/locked topic.…..

seabiscuit | February 7, 2010 6:33 PM according to a couple (also unnamed) sources, someone sent a few pics, of boxes of things taken from Freshwater’s room (in one of the school board member’s office) was sent to Freshwater in early-mid Jan.

.……and it wasn’t me!

The plot thickens here in good ole’ MTV!

Convenient, isn’t it, that Freshwater and his friends have a reason for their fingerprints being all over the material?

In response to a comment on the old, closed thread:

Just Bob said:

“He branded a child!”

Yes, this guy should have been fired years ago! But I think that calling this “branding,” and making it the firing offense is the wrong approach. It sounds like shrill over-reaction (sorry, Phantom).

We’re talking about a guy who had other people’s children entrusted to his care, and thought it would be fun to burn the symbol of his cult into their flesh. He’s a religious nut, teaching lies to children in flagrant violation of the law, and the locals are so deeply indoctrinated into the same cult he’s in that they actually defend him for this and threaten his victims. Maybe, just maybe, pointing out that he was burning children might shock them out of their delusion for half a second and convince them they don’t want this psychopath representing the cult. Though it hasn’t yet.

Just Bob said: I am NOT defending Freshwater, BUT, as I understand it, none of the marks he made were ever permanent (disappeared in a day or so), and would barely qualify as first-degree burns.

From what I’ve read, some lasted at least a week and were serious enough to qualify as second-degree.

Just Bob said: The kids volunteered. Yes, peer pressure is always a problem with teenagers, but they were in no way forced to cooperate.

If the kids had volunteered to drink H2SO4, would that be okay? What if they’d volunteered for a hands-on demo of the human reproductive system a-la May Kay Letourneax? What if they’d just volunteered for tattoos? An adult (especially a teacher) should know better than to encourage certain things, even if the victims volunteered. And the peer pressure in these situations is recognized as coercive.

Just Bob said: And I may be wrong about this, but I haven’t heard that he had ever been told not to use the device on kids.

If he honestly couldn’t tell that burning children was a bad idea without being specifically told that it was, then he has no business teaching. In fact, if he’s so totally disconnected from reality as to see no problem at all with writing on the flesh of other people’s kids with electrical burns, he should be in a rubber room so he doesn’t endanger himself or others.

Just Bob said: Yes, it was dumb to do anything that would leave a mark that could be considered an injury, however slight, and it was way past stupid to make it a cross.

Actually, I think the choice of the cross may have been the only “smart” thing he did here, albeit probably not intentionally so.

If Freshwater had used any other religious symbol, if he’d been engaging in child abuse in the name of any god other than the christian one, the local religious nuts wouldn’t be raising money for his defense, or trying to intimidate his victims into silence, or doing bizarre cloak-and-dagger shit and possibly forging documents to assist his case. They would have descended on his house with torches and pitchforks, dragged him out and hung him from the nearest tree until he was dead. I’m not even sure at this point that that’s an exaggeration, there’ve been enough death threats from religious fanatics in church-state cases, including the witness intimidation in this one, sadly a lynch mob doesn’t seem all that farfetched.

If he’d used a non-religious symbol, or just random marks, he would have been fired in seconds, no one would have come to his aid. It’s only the fact that this crime was committed in a way that celebrates the christian cult that’s kept Freshwater alive, out of jail, and still wasting money in hearings all this time. Without the support from religious nuts, he’d be out on the street, in prison, or dead. The fact that he chose a cross to burn into the flesh of children is surely a major part of what’s gotten him all this support.

Just Bob said: Yes, fire him; it’s clear that he has, for years, committed fire-able offenses, but “branding children” isn’t one of them.

If deliberately causing burns to a child is not in itself a fire-able offense for a teacher, what the fuck is wrong with education in this country? There needs to be at least SOME minimum standard of care for children in school. A teacher should be protecting his students from harm, not actively causing harm.

Yes, Freshwater should have been fired years ago for using his position to force his religious dogma on students. He should have been fired for lying to the kids, teaching them nonsense, and lying about his lesson plans and handouts. Hell, he should have been fired just for being grossly unqualified for the job! But on top of all that, he committed assault and battery (involving an actual battery!) on minors. There should be a warrant for his arrest on that!

Just Bob said: An historical aside: Back in the early ’60s, in 9th grade science class, we were introduced to, presumably, the same device. It looked kind of like a fat sheep-shear, but with a blunt metal point. If I remember right, it made an ominous mad-scientist electric hum. Our teacher did several tricks with it, including having the class all hold hands in a chain and having the first student grab the metal probe (don’t remember if it was on or off to start). You never felt a thing until you let go and broke the chain, then the two who broke felt a shock. He also asked if anyone wanted to feel it firsthand, and several volunteered (to earn macho points, I guess). But I know the teacher knew he’d gone too far when he got one tough dude to ground himself on the lab faucet, then zapped him on the head! Nearly knocked the guy over. Except for the head zap, I got the impression that this was pretty much a standard demo about electricity (voltage vs. amperage, etc.) in those days. I know the teacher had used the zapper for years and it was one of the exciting things kids looked forward to, maybe with some trepidation, in his class.

Many stupid things were done in the past. But the way you report it, it seems any injury to the students was strictly accidental, not the intended purpose of the exercise. And when the teacher went to far, he apparently realized it and stopped. Your teachers did something stupid and dangerous, but unlike Freshwater they didn’t go in with the intention of deliberately causing lasting injury to their students. That seems like a pretty relevant difference.

It also contained three stopwatches, a whistle, and $45 in cash. LOL, wut?

Probably material from Freshwater’s classroom.

A comment on the previous post said that someone anonymously sent a picture of boxes of Freshwater’s classroom material sitting in an office in the school. Maybe that is the document that caused the delay, and these are materials from the classroom.

No telling what is actually going on here. And I don’t see how any material is going to prove that Freshwater didn’t brand a child.

This is just plain weird, and gets weirder every day. I wonder who will get movie rights to this sordid saga? I wouldn’t let that whack job train one of my dogs. Thanks for reminding me why my real estate taxes are so high.

So someone stole some of the contents of Freshwater’s room from the school. Why?

Freshwater was out of town when he got a voicemail telling him about the materials, and so was not involved in retrieving them.

Bit convenient here, isn’t it?

he got a voicemail telling him about the materials,

The voicemail should still exist, shouldn’t it? And be traceable. Back to a disposable cell phone from Walmart, I guess.

It also contained three stopwatches, a whistle, and $45 in cash.

No one accidently throws out cash. These materials had to have been deliberately removed from the school. By someone or something.

A bit strange here. Great job RBH. For your next assignment, should you choose to accept it. At midnight go to the telephone booth out by the cow barns on Wazoo lane. A call will direct you to a tape recorder in a black computer bag with a paper bag filled with old $1000 bills. Push playback. Listen. Sixty seconds after the recording is over, the tape player will self destruct. Run and don’t forget that paper bag.

The only thing I can thing is that a lot of the materials here are things that were unique to Freswater’s classroom, but still specifically for use in his classroom (which were removed until this whole matter was settled.) Likewise the photos were to document thier placement should the “visibility of materials” become part of the issue at hand. Early on I’m sure there was some hope that this would all just “go back to the way it was”.

Just because someone “on the inside” thought these materials would somehow exhonerate Freshwater, doesn’t mean that they will…

So the stack of papers may be innocuous handouts that were held becuase they had to be checked to see if they were any of the ones reported as being part of Freshwater’s non-acceptable course practices, but kept when they were shown not to be (and yet still had value as classroom materials)?

It’s just all so freaking odd.

I agree 100% with raven (= 110% for those sports fans that are having football withdrawal).

The first thing that occured to me? How convenient that Freshwater happened to be out of town. I am surprised that the papers were not reported to be found with fish scales all over them.

I wondered about that one, since its literacy level was well below yours. The IP address associated with that comment resolves to Embarq, so it could well be local to Mt. Vernon since Embarq is the provider of DSL lines in this area.

It would appear that the contents of the bag are stolen. The lawyer telling them to call the police was probability the smartest thing he has done. Receiving stolen property is a criminal offense. I can’t imagine what it could contain that will get him off the gallows.

My guess is that someone on the inside thinks this will help him, when in fact it will only “dirty” his case more (if that is possible).

In response to your response…

We agree about 95%. But I still think some folks go too far with the “branding” bit. I still haven’t heard that any administrator ever told him or any other teacher not to use it on kids like that.

How about teachers in other districts? Has anyone out there ever used the device like that? Or known someone who has? Or known someone who was told not to?

I certainly wouldn’t use the coil like that, and it’s clear that you wouldn’t–but I still think the “burning” and “branding” language is inappropriately extreme. I mean, think of how many things that kids are given the opportunity to do, asked to do, or even ordered to do at school are likely to leave a red mark (or worse) that lasts a day or two. Just think of any sport or even PE class. I know I came home from school with red marks and occasional bruises, floor burns, etc. from touch football, basketball, softball, wrestling, dodgeball… which we were ordered to participate in. Hell, here in Texas it takes a kid getting KILLED in football (happens about once a year), for a coach to even be questioned about his treatment of players. I’ve even seen kids with more or less permanent bruises on their shoulders from carrying backpacks full of heavy textbooks. As a retired teacher, perhaps I’m oversensitive about “You injured my child!” charges.

I guess the question is where you draw the line with things that could be considered injury to kids. You and I agree that it should be drawn to exclude making marks on skin with a Tesla coil device. But I wouldn’t rate that so far below the line that I’d call it “burning or branding children.” We’ll have to disagree on that, and I won’t argue with you anymore about it.

BTW, are you familiar with the device in question? Would you approve of letting kids experience the “zap” in any way? How about the “holding hands” demo I described? No burns, no marks, but a shock about like a good carpet-doorknob zap.

Again, don’t assume I’m defending Freshwater. He’s a jerk and an asshole. But a jerk who rudely jostles someone, who then slips and breaks his neck, is NOT guilty of first degree murder. He’s just a rude jerk.

raven said:

Anybody want to bet the voicemail (if it ever existed) got “accidently” erased, and no longer exists? I want to see Freshwater on the stand and under oath describe the voicemail, and deny it was a live phone call.

And what little “souvenirs” do you think the Three Stooges kept behind and DIDN’T give to the police? If they kept so much as one piece of paper or one picture, that’s “witholding evidence” and there’s another charge for them.

Hm. And I see the real seabiscuit’s IP does not resolve to Embarq. So it was a sock/imposter. We’ll look into it more deeply.

Just Bob: You certainly aren’t alone in your sentiment that sensationalist language is inappropriate and gentlemanly in regards to the freshwater case. Thanks for being a well tempered voice of reason.

I think freshwater has proven that he can’t separate his faith from his public duties, and therefore I can’t see why he should expect to continue teach in a public school. But, on the other hand, I don’t know that anything he did was so egregious that he couldn’t teach at a parochial school.

The emails are different, so I suspect that it is a coincidence that two people are using the same moniker. It’s not like “Seabiscuit” is unique.

It’s a little freaky that comment was made like it was me. The longer this goes on, the weirder it gets. The only thing that’s missing is sex and murder.…lol!

Yes, but usually you can’t use the same moniker as someone else when you are signing up for a blog site.

It’s not like “Seabiscuit” is unique.

It is not like it is a common internet name either.

I’ve never seen another seabiscuit on the internet. There are a near infinite number of nyms to make up or pick from.

What is the probability that two people on PT just happened to pick the same name? The most parsimonious explanation is aliasing.

And this is supposed to get Freshwater restored as a teacher? He was fired for doing crazy stuff–and now this even crazier behavior is going to vindicate him? I really pity the poor person chairing these hearings!

seabiscuit said:

We don’t have a signup system, so it easy for someone to accidentally use an already established name. Usually the community works it out.

It’s the birthday problem in statistics. Basically, the probability is much higher than you think because you have to consider all possible pairs, not just the two individuals that caused the collision.

I think Freshwater got mixed up with a bad crowd. I am guessing he has that religionist’s naivete, and let those other henchmen railroad him into really, really screwing the pooch.

Regarding the discussion about the usage of the term “branding children”.. would those of you who object feel more comfortable with “cooked children on the inside with radio frequency electricity”? I admit that the term branding suggests something other than what happened, my first image was of some sort of cross shaped device that burned the image into the skin. I agree, that’s not accurate, but I’m not sure the alternatives sound any better for Freshwater’s case.

This was not a simple van de graff generator. The output of tesla coils is sometimes treated as as harmless as the static zaps you get from a van de graff machine, but it’s potentially more dangerous. In this case it appears that the damage was done to the surface of the student’s skin, but I know of situations when someone has played with a tesla coil and ended up getting damage to his muscles because the current went through them instead of the surface of his skin, where RF electricity is usually assumed to go.

As to the current shenanigans in Mt Vernon.. I have a guess as to what’s going on. It’s vague but it’s based on “climate gate”. In that situation a bunch of stolen emails were leaped upon as evidence of fraudulent activity without any actual evidence of such activity being uncovered. It was sufficient to leap upon a few phrases that can be interpreted multiple ways. The denialists declared that they’d found the evidence and went straight to trumpeting their triumph rather than actually attempting to use the evidence for some purpose. It was a political trick, not a finding of evidence.

So my guess is that this is intended more to play out in the arena of public opinion than in the hearings. They have the concept of an insider covertly handing over to them secret documents that the school board didn’t want them to have. They can go to the public with this story and… well, I’m not sure what happens from there. Perhaps ultimately they could use this to try to get a new creationist school board elected, or just to generally try to build sufficient public pressure to get Freshwater reinstated.

I’m sure the pastor is already telling fascinating stories to his flock about his adventures traveling at night under the protection of an armed guard to retrieve secret evidence to exonerate the good and just Mr Freshwater. It feeds the persecution complex in multiple ways.

As to what will actually happen with this in reality I’m not entirely sure. Now that the police are involved I’m curious to see what they’ll do regarding the apparent theft of money from school property.

I don’t know about the Mt Vernon district, but around where I live I once did a little temporary work for the district on their computers. But even for that brief time I had to be fingerprinted, and apparently my prints were sent to the FBI for checking and, as far as I could tell, long term storage.

If that’s the case in Mt Vernon then things could move along rather swiftly. If the other party wasn’t sufficiently covert and handled the plastic bag with his or her bare hands then the police may have at least a place to start in the investigation already.

One last thing, I have to comment on someone apparently using Raven’s name to post rumors related to the trash story. That’s just bizarre! It just makes it all the more fascinating, it suggests that another local is aware that we’re following this and somehow wants to involve us.

I can’t really parse any apparent intent from that message though, it doesn’t necessarily seem pro or anti Freshwater, so I don’t really know what to make of it.

UNgentlemanly, I think you mean.

Thanks, Larry.

It strikes me that some of the more extreme language is reminiscent of what creationists do when they call “evolutionism” racist, Nazi, or accuse all “evilutionists” of wanting to promote a radical, atheistic, antiXian agenda.

Woops, crud, not Raven’s name, Seabiscuit’s. Sorry. And yeah, I did wonder if it might be a coincidence. But.. maybe I’m just stuck in conspiracy mode after all this talk of shady late night meetings with evidence stashed in a trash can.

One of the earliest stories on PT called it a “cross burning”.

OK, I know it’s silly but as soon as I read about the stopwatches and whistle the statement “Coach Daubenmire is deep throat!” shot through my head.

RBH - It’s been said before but wow you are really doing the journalist’s hard work here! Thanks for getting the story out!

Very interesting. The photographs mean at least some of the contents of the bag are probably legitimate. Hard to fake that many photos convincingly.

Hypotheses: a) some crank (in this saga, I’m afraid we have a rather long list of suspects that fit that description) stole a bag full of goods from the school b) a paranoid nut threw a bunch of stuff in a bag to get attention c) this is just a stall tactic and the story is all or partially a fiction.

These hypotheses are by no means mutually exclusive, of course. Can anyone think of any other possibilities?

What should we put in the next bag?

I’ll start:

The Pearl of Great Price, a slow boat to China, and a hooker with a heart of gold.

Hammers. Nothing but hammers, since AIG-type folks seem to be about as smart as a bag of the same.

For the next bag, lets give them an Alethiometer ! “It is the Alethiometer. It tells the truth. As for how to read it, you’ll have to learn by yourself.” maybe they would be so shocked and ashamed by the result that they would go into voluntary exile.

Good idea. Let’s add a dark meter (don’t know the technical name). It was being developed some years back by a bunch of creationists who were sure that darkness was an actual thing, not just an absence of light, because–get this–God separated the darkness from the light. So a light meter registering zero wouldn’t be detecting the presence of darkness, just the lack of light. Maybe it’s a major research division of the Great Baraminology Project.

Seriously.

And they elect congressmen.

Well you know dark is faster than light, because no mater how fast light travels dark is already there! So I guess the speed of light is no an absolute limit after all. :):):)

Given the weirdness of this whole ordeal, I have to say that the true name of the Lord worshiped by Freshwater and his caddywompus compatriots is not in any way related to or derived from YHWH. The true name of the Lord must be Xenu. It is the only explanation that fits the cult-like strangeness afoot.

I wonder if any DC-8s have landed in Mt. Vernon lately?

Mr. Freshwater was given access to his room so that he could remove any personal items before he was “locked out.” He deliberately left his Bible behind. School district personnel subsequently packed anything else that appeared to belong to Mr. Freshwater in a box which was taken to the Mount Vernon City Board Office in a separate building. Anything else that the current occupant of the classroom found and didn’t want to use may have been placed somewhere in the middle school, but this is spectulation. I imagine that some do-good Freshwater supporter may have found a box like this with unwanted classroom paraphenalia and made some clandestine attempt to get the box. In the meantime, it’s hard to imagine having a pickup truck full of personal material in a classroom.…I would rather imagine that if he had that much material, it was probably curricular in nature. It’s clear to see that Freshwater supporters are engaging in some flights of fantasy with their conspiracy delusions.…all this cloak and dagger behavior! It makes no sense whatsoever and I believe it is only designed to prolong a process that should have ended over a year ago.
