Saturday, April 13, 2013: Hi Sam. I am in line waiting to get back to San Diego. It’s not too bad for the 3rd week in a row. Long enough for me to write you. I am relieved that my old friend Alfredo is back. Not everyone can say friendships started by one guy giving the other a ride to and from prison, but that is exactly how I met Alfredo. I met him when I had to check into La Mesa Prison every Friday after Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel), Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) and a friend had me ambushed and thrown into La Mesa Prison back in 2010. Once he heard our story he’s had our back ever since. He was visiting family for a while. I am glad he’s back.

Going into today like every Saturday, I could not wait to see you. Today, I cannot get the story from CNN from last night out of my head. Michael Shannon is the father’s name. If you Google his name and “Egyptian parental child abduction”, you will find his story. Two parts of the story stuck with me. One, the mother is a complete whack-job. CNN went to Egypt to track the kids down and get the mother’s side of the story. She did not want to be photographed or videotaped. Imagine that. However, they did record the phone conversation with her. Kudos to CNN for playing her entire interview in their piece. Its important to get a look inside the mind of people who abduct kids and do the crazy shit this woman and people like Adriana have done.

This woman did not disappoint.

The interesting part was seeing how arrogant the grandmother was. Reminds me of Maria Guadalupe. After the abduction, they had the moxie to actually come back to the United States with fake passports. They had vacation property in San Diego of all places. Michael Shannon’s older son found out and had them arrested for the abduction of the boys. To avoid going to prison for 10-years, all she had to do was get the kids back to the father, who like me, had won every court case imaginable. She actually decided to go to prison! There is an arrest warrant for the kid’s mother too, and rightfully so. The authorities will get her. They always do.

Two, and most important, was the brain washing of the kids by the mother. A week after the abductions, the mother called Michael Shannon and put the older son, who was 4-years old at the time, on the phone. There he said he was in New York and that they wanted him to come get them so they could go back home. That phone call happened on September 11, 2001. The day terrorists attacked the United States. Unfortunately the mother had put the boys up to lying to the father just to try and take the heat off them as they were on the run.

Adriana did the same exact thing with you. It took Adriana almost 3-months to make that same phone call. January 23, 2009. I don’t have to look up the day, it’s etched in my memory forever. I will never forget that day. I was not home at the time and the call went to voicemail. Adriana did not say anything, it was all you. The message was 7-seconds. The most beautiful 7-seconds of my life. You were only 2 ½ at the time so an “Hola Papa” is all that was said. Then Adriana hung up. I saved the voicemail and have kept this recording of you not knowing if this would be the last time I would hear your beautiful voice.

So, when CNN caught up to the mother in Egypt recently, they asked her why has she kept the boy away from the father? Why not even as much as a picture in 12-years? She said the father could come to Egypt anytime he wanted and that nobody asked for pictures. Which was a lie, because he actually asked for pictures all the time, to no avail. But when CNN asked her if she would let the boys visit their father in the United States, she flat out said “No”.

The mother takes it a step further to show how crazy she is. She told CNN the pictures of the boys used in the piece were not the boys. Yet, she turns around and said she was going to sue CNN. If those were not the boys why sue CNN? Either way, what good will suing CNN do anyway?

There is obvious brain washing going on with you as well Sam. It’s obvious you have been coached on what to tell me and not tell me. It’s not your fault. This is what parental abductors do. Another term for the brainwashing is called “parental alienation”. Case in point, how long does it take the average person to wash dishes in the kitchen? 10, 15, maybe 20-minutes depending on the mess? They, meaning Adriana, Maria Guadalupe & Axel Alvarez Coronel (AKA Axel Coronel), take over 6-hours. I am not even kidding. How convenient that the kitchen is open and right next to the visiting area, also known as the living room. So today when I arrive, Maria Guadalupe was doing the dishes for 2-hours. After she was done it was Axel’s turn for the next 2-hours. And to close the last couple hours of our time together, Maria Guadalupe was at it again for another 2-hours! I am not sure there is much left of that same pot Maria Guadalupe was scrubbing for 4-hours. She scrubbed it right into oblivion.

This is part of how they try to disguise what they are doing, by acting like they have things to do. Conveniently enough, it was the same exact 6-hours I was there. You recognized this and went to get your CD player to drown out all the noise with your music.

At 1:30 in the afternoon, the friend that has been leaching off Adriana finally wakes up. She doesn’t get off her ass to do anything. She doesn’t pretend to work, God forbid. No, she just sits there at the kitchen table and watches what we are doing.

After a few hours of Lollaloopsy in the living room, I made a comment about how beautiful your hair is. You turned and asked me to brush your hair with my fingers. Of course! It would be an honor Sam. That’s when you started the conversation about my family and that “someday you hope you are allowed to meet them”.

At the end of the day, Maria Guadalupe was anxious to get me out of the house. But not before you and I talked about my attempts to call you. I asked you if anyone told you that I called, and you told “No”. I told you the days I called, who I talked to and the excuse they gave me to not put you on the phone. You had a hard time comprehending what that meant and that is OK. It will make sense soon enough. I LOVE YOU SAM!
