A HOUSTON RACKETEERING RING OF “MINI-MADOFFS” HAS BEEN EXTORTING VICTIMS OUT OF THEIR LIFE SAVINGS FOR DECADES. THE SYNDICATE IS ALSO LINKED TO A TRAGIC 2016 MURDER-SUICIDE INVOLVING TWO CHILDREN

I spent several months tracking down victims of a far ranging ponzi ring that spent decades swindling numerous innocent people. Like a Mini-Madoff in Houston and Marlin, the story is tragic and heartbreaking and I’m so proud to share a byline with investigative reporter and true crime podcaster, Alissa Fleck on this. She did an astounding job of taking the interviews and some of my notes and tracking down more info to really flesh out this story.

So proud to finally see this go live. Hopefully having their story told is the first step to closure and peace for some people who lost everything, including family members in a few instances. The article below is just part one of a series, here’s hoping that law enforcement and other investigative reporters pick up some of the breadcrumbs we’ve left them…

Check out the first few paragraphs below and you can read the rest at Alissa’s site Crimescoop:

PART I: MURDER AND FRAUD IN TEXAS

Lakshimanarayan “Lucky” Srinivasan, Jeremy Raju Srinivasan, Gwendolyn “Gwen” Stone Stallworth-Sumrall, Alvar Chari, Anirban Haldar and their many co-conspirators, have conned individuals, families, businesses and other organizations out of multiple millions of dollars in cash and assets over the past several decades, leaving many of their victims destitute and their lives ripped apart. The racketeering ring has used a combination of check-kiting, reverse Ponzi and other fraudulent investment schemes to extort money from their hard-working victims, court records show. In 2016, under mounting financial pressure caused by his and his co-conspirators’ volitional fraudulent entanglements, Jeremy murdered his wife and two young children before fatally turning the gun on himself. Lucky, Gwen and the others continue to actively seek new investors to swindle.

Exactly five years ago today, on the morning of April 19, 2016, at 8:30 a.m., Jeremy Raju Srinivasan, 37, sent his father Lakshimanarayan “Lucky” Srinivasan a final text message: “Everything is not OK. Please call police. Goodbye.” What came next was a tragedy that would rock their quiet Houston, Texas suburb, leaving in its wake a trail of devastation and unanswered questions.

Within 15 minutes of sending that text message, Jeremy, his wife Natalie Altier Srinivasan, 35, and their two children, 5-year-old Sienna and 2-year-old Michael James (“MJ”), would be found dead by police inside their Katy, Texas home. One of the detectives who processed the scene, Detective Daniel Calvillo of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department, told family members that Natalie was found in bed with a single bullet wound to the head. Jeremy had killed his wife, then shot each kid twice in the head where they lay asleep in bed, before turning the gun on himself.

Defense for the Prosecution: the trial of Kai the Hitchhiker

Kai the Hitchhiker has been the victim of an unfair system after years of unconstitutional detention, questionable and potentially illegal investigation methods, and a trial where even his own defense attorney seemed out to get him.

In the case of Caleb McGillvary, better known by many as Kai the Hitchhiker, the phrase “guilty until proven innocent” has been turned on its ear. Kai went from folk hero and living meme to accused of murder. However, an eyewitness for the trial confirmed disturbing discrepancies in the trial transcript. “Now, I’m going to go over some of the stuff that the State’s going to say well.” As he faced the Jury, his face contorted and his voice vehement with rage, Cito pointed accusingly at Kai. “That shows my client is full of crap,” he continued. “He did this intentionally. He purposefully ran out of the house.” This may sound a bit strange as if the defense were working hand in hand with the prosecution. As strange as it sounds, several moments in the trial support this possibility.

You can find part I of my series on some of the many issues with the trial at The Latest. Part II should be online soon and shooting for part 3 of 4 should be online next week. Follow my site for the latest of my coverage on this case and other stories.

Just A Coincidence podcast interview with Jack Allen about Pedogate Primer

Just A Coincidence podcast: Ep. 72 w/ Philip Fairbanks Phillip writes an amazing book talking about how long this has been in our culture. How it has been covered up w/ the likes of people like Epstein and so much deeper. You will truly love this book. It goes back as far as Alice in wonderland author and Peter Pan. Is that why Jackson named his Neverland Ranch? Check it out live online at various locations including Podbay: https://podbay.fm/p/conspiracy-or-just-a-coincidence/e/1615063778

Keep your ears peeled for a handful of other interviews with me that I’ve recently finished and some other prospective interviews I’m working out on details on.

One Step forward two steps back: on the mend update

I have now spent most of 2021 either unable or hardly able to walk and confined to bed or wheelchair. Will be trying to get another doctors appointment to see if I’m ready for physical therapy next week. The hardest part is passed not having trouble operating doorknobs or opening bottles of water anymore still a ways to go before I’m back where I was. Going to spend time resting as much as possible and hopefully be back to normal (or as normal as I ever was LOL) soon. Great thanks to all who kept me in their prayers offered support and help during this difficult time. Much love and respect.

Masked Luchador Runs for Mayor Anonymously

Who is that masked man anyway? Blue Demon Jr., a masked Mexican wrestler runs for mayor in Mexico City (try saying that five times fast). The famous wrestler intends to not only run anonymously but govern anonymously if elected. What’s more he is only one of three masked candidates running for mayor in Mexico currently.

Aliens & The Occult: Occult Engineers & Hidden Histories

Have you ever stopped to wonder what, if any thread connects NASA’s JPL, The Antichrist, Thomas Pynchon, the Roswell crash and cult classic b-horror distributors Troma Pictures? We delve into the weird connections between strange tales of alien cults and actual alien cults themselves. We begin with H.G. Welles and Crowley then through Lovecraft, Jack Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard up through Thomas Pynchon to see how a suppressed history is encoded in fiction.

Gray aliens and the Roswell crash site have a long established connection to the Crowleyan current. What all could Lovecraft have possibly known about the actual cult of Thelema as they attempted to invoke extradimensional entities. Lovecraft’s cosmic horror, echoing H.G. Welles, sets the stage for the reductive materialist “clockwork universe” of our current “New Age of War.” Is there truth hidden within the unassuming pages of pulp fiction and within the celluloid reels of cheesy b-horror movies? Tune in and decide for yourself.

Interview with Jane Babb and PhD, Esq. regarding Kratom

I spoke with Dr. Jane Babin, molecular biologist and patent lawyer, regarding Mitragyna speciosa, better known as kratom. Kratom is a plant in the Rubiacea family, making it a botanical cousin of the coffee plant. It has been used safely as a folk medicine for hundreds of years in its native South East Asia. Recently as it has grown more popular among users around the globe it has come under fire of both the DEA and FDA. Luckily, despite the concerted attempts of these regulatory agencies, there are a host of brilliant minds in the field of science, law, forensic toxicology, pharmacology and other areas who believe that kratom is a beneficial plant with multiple medicinal and health benefits. Dr. Babin offers her expert opinion on whether or not kratom is actually an opioid, what potential risks there may be and how they weigh against other legal substances.
