5-years, 8-months, 2-days into Samantha’s abduction

Saturday, July 12, 2014: Interesting visit today Sam. I figured it would be after what transpired in court a few days ago. Right away you told me you were mad at me because of court. You went on to say that you know everything because Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) told you what happened. And that “the lady in the red dress did not treat my mom very good”.

The lady in the red dress was my attorney, whom you have met before. Adriana was rattled in court, no question. She did this to herself. “Sam, your mother felt that she was not treated good because your mother has a hard time telling the truth, even to you. Your mother has had YEARS to fix this and she refuses. What happened to your mother is a result of all her lying catching up to her. Nothing more. I’m sorry you feel the way you do. Nobody wanted to see that. Again, your mother did this to herself and has nobody else to blame BUT herself.”

As my luck would have it, Adriana comes downstairs. I told you that if you have questions about court that you should feel comfortable asking your questions in front of both of us. I told Adriana that Sam wants to talk to us and as soon as Sam asked her first question about court, Adriana shut it down, “Sam, I told you not to talk about this with your Dad.” Really Adriana, why is that???

So, this is how the day starts. The court official heard all of this. Of course it’s going in his report for to the judge.

The housekeeper did everything she could to interfere. No surprise there. There were good chunks of time she would just stand there watching over Sam and me. That went on for about an hour. Then it was Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global). He was there the whole time. All that talk about him not being in the picture anymore. Yet he seemed to know exactly where the keys to the house were, tucked away in a cute little box at the bottom of the stairs. You know that same box don’t you Danny Howitt (AKA Daniel Duncan Howitt, Elizabeth Farquhar Duncan, Kenneth Duncan)? Of course when all the animals affected the court official’s allergies, he went outside to get some air. Palomeque was right there following him around like a lost dog. Palomeque knew better than to say anything to me. Palomeque was bringing bags of groceries into the house and sat in the kitchen with Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) while Adriana was on hiding up stairs.

You were not affected by the conversation we had. In fact you looked relieved. I told you that there is a reason Adriana doesn’t want you to talk to me about what happens on court, because she has yet to tell the truth there and she obviously is not going to tell you the truth at home. So we went about the visit doing the same, playing with the toys in that room. At one point you told me you were bored and wanted me to take you to a movie but you knew Adriana would not let us. I told you I was sorry and that is the exact reason why we have been in court so much. You shook your head in agreement understanding the situation.

Sam, I do my best to keep it light when I am there. At the same time, I am not covering up for Adriana or anyone else in that house anymore. You are starting to ask the right questions. Keeping it light with you gives me a great look into what is going on in that house when I am not there.

Last, you and I talked about the cell phone I gave you for your birthday back in May. You told me the truth when you said Axel Alvarez Coronel (AKA Axel Coronel) wiped the phone clean of everything that was on there. You went on to tell me that Adriana doesn’t want you using that phone and they bought you a new one just so you would not use the one I gave you. Axel is indeed becoming a little asshole. The apple is not falling too far from that family tree.

Like always, we try to make the most of the time. The animals in the house are driving everyone crazy, even you Sam. I would not be surprised if that too is by design knowing we are all allergic to them. They would not even allow us to open the patio door to get fresh air in the house. Par for the course. It was great to see you Sam. I am sorry it’s been under such hostile of environments.
