Wednesday, November 25, 2015: So, the 2nd Family Court in Tijuana ordered Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) to bring you to court for a scheduled hearing that was to take place today. Adriana knew about this a month ago when the judge in Irapuato reminded her attorney herself. Most people were leaning on Adriana not showing up. She is obviously crazy enough to defy the court order by not showing up to past court hearings. This time is no different with most people leaning on her not showing up at all. After all she has been persona-non-grata to all the court dates in Irapuato, why would she fly to Tijuana. Adriana is a woman who could care less about being responsible or accountable and could care less about the consequences of her actions. After all, it’s Danny Howitt (AKA Daniel Duncan Howitt, Elizabeth Farquhar Duncan, Kenneth Duncan) problem now. So, let’s oblige him.

While all this was going on, Adriana has not hurt her reputation for only caring about one thing, herself. Getting blown up on El Mexicano did not stop her from stalking the El Mexicano reporter who wrote the article about our situation. The guy met us in court and told us Adriana was stalking him online in private messages trying to convince him to retract the story with the same old and tired excuses about how horrible I am, etc. The reporter was awesome! He told Adriana that he did his homework and was not going to retract the story and if she wanted to tell her side of the story he would be more than happy to interview her after her mandatory court appearance.

Of course as predicted, Adriana did not show up.

There’s more. At 8:10 AM this morning Televisa called from Mexico City. They too received the Amber Alert and are going to be here in court at 1:30. Holy shit! The court hearing in the 2nd Civil Court was at 12:00. Obviously we were hoping to spend time with you after you were rudely whisked away in Irapuato a couple weeks ago by Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio), Graciela Alarcon Barreda and 2 gun toting assholes.

Eventually it became obvious that Adriana was not going to show up to court. The judge in the 2nd Civil Court in Tijuana was not happy with her for blowing off a mandatory court appearance again. Although he was not surprised. This is Adriana’s M.O.

Televisa did their homework too. This horror story has gone on for so long that if you were not living this with me, you would have a hard time believing it. Granted all 25,000+ pages of court documents are public record. Anyone can get access to everything I write about here. Only the selectively ignorant will judge me without doing their homework first. Televisa would not have called unless they did their homework first, much less travel from Mexico City to Tijuana to interview us. None of these news outlets would have.

1:30 on the dot, Televisa was here. The security guards at the court building could not have been cooler about the media attention there. I am sure they have seen it before. As Televisa was setting up, the cameraman and the reporter told me they understood the situation from a personal standpoint because they had family members going through the same thing. When they did their homework on this case, they said the things Adriana was doing to Samantha was one of the most extreme cases they have seen. Of course when they found out Adriana did not bother to show up for court, they were not surprised. One of the guys said, “People like Adriana never show up when the camera is on.”

The interview lasted 45-minutes. By the questions they were asking, you can tell they were well prepared and had done their homework. The process was fascinating. We will post the entire video to the site when it becomes available to us. This will go out to the entire country of Mexico at 10:00 tonight! Thank you Televisa!

Words cannot describe the sadness and frustration I have felt these last 7-years. That goes without saying. At the same time, we have crossed paths with so many great people who have done what they could to help to put an end to this horrible situation. In time we will name all of them by name because they deserve that and more.

By the way, Azteca TV had to reschedule the interview for Monday. We look forward to that.
