Dear God in Heaven John Doe #1 is black and his attackers are white

The following is the result of a nearly 40-months long investigation
into the Williamsport Area High School Baseball Team trip
to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the spring of 2018.

This story is graphic and contains details related to multiple indecent sexual assaults.

The author and editor of this story have made the editorial decision to not publish the names of the individuals under the age of 18 at the time of the incident who have been clearly identified as committing these acts in this case they were recently formally charged with a crime in South Carolina.

A Baseball Story In The Birthplace Of Little League Baseball



PART XXXIV – “Dear God in Heaven John Doe #1 is black and his attackers are white”

Now it all make sense why they (WASD, Little League, Office of District Attorney, WBP, City of Williamsport)

could not reconcile being transparent.

By Todd Bartley,

There has been an elephant in the room since the details of the Williamsport Area High School Baseball Team trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the spring of 2018 – JOHN DOE #1 is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white.

On June 9, 2020 Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf was asked by this author “Governor, what is your best advice to Pennsylvanians in finding mutual understanding on the issues of race relations going forward?”

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf – June 9, 2020

“I think we have to start by making sure that we’re not in denial.

That we’ve got to recognize that there are two Pennsylvanias out there.

When you look at the criminal justice system there are two Pennsylvanias

there is one Pennsylvania for you if you are white and one if you’re not.


Who knew Governor Wolf could have been speaking of the Williamsport Area High School Baseball Team trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the spring of 2018 – JOHN DOE #1 is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white?

ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 was criminally charged under sexual assault statutes by the Horry County, South Carolina Solicitor. It is the South Carolina version of the Office of District Attorney.

ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 was given a pre-trial agreed to sentence equivalent to ARD in Pennsylvania as a first time juvenile offender and remains on probation supervised by Lycoming County Juvenile Probation.

ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 agreed to a diversionary program in order to avoid jail-time in South Carolina as the crime rose to that level of criminality.

Let us be clear, ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 took a plea deal so the only conclusion that can be drawn is that something more than a prank occurred in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on a school sponsored trip.

While representing ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 there is an understanding attorney George Lepley brokered a deal to keep JOHN DOE #2 and his family, quiet.

JOHN DOE #2 was the victim of a subsequent sexual assault attack on video during the same trip.


From Part III


Lepley went as far as to offer comment on the case while coaching the West End 13U team in Altoona, Pennsylvania on the Talk Williamsport Facebook page as noted on

Sunday, July 28, 2019, 1:09 p.m.
George E Lepley Jr
 This matter was reviewed by law enforcement in Myrtle Beach and found to NOT be appropriate for criminal prosecution. I don’t think you can get anymore independent than that

The same George Lepley who stayed in the team hotel in Myrtle Beach, formerly coached a son of Brandon Pardoe in the West End baseball program, authored a letter threatening the WASD with civil litigation if his client was punished in any way by the WASD.

The same George Lepley who after contending there is nothing “appropriate for criminal prosecution” may have had a hand in crafting the pre-trial arrangement for his client to avoid actual jail time in South Carolina.

Yet the WASD took the time to recognize George Floyd after his tragic passing while never using the word “victim” as it relates to JOHN DOE #1 who is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white.

The same George Floyd, Williamsport Area School District board member Jennifer Lake and card carrying member of the local woke elite club used as the evidence to proclaim the systemic racism inherent in the same district she oversees in the aftermath of his tragic death.

As far as history and the documented record are concerned the assertion Jennifer Lake makes that the WASD is systemically racist is correct according to woke lore.

However, the distraction campaign of “Racism Has No Home Here”, is now proven to be patently false – and Jennifer Lake in her role as a WASD school board member has always known that.

What benefit is wokeism if on your watch you accept the fact a black child was sexually assaulted and you say and do absolutely nothing about it?

High profile civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump represented the family of George Floyd.


How did Jennifer Lake miss the fact that JOHN DOE #1 is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white?

From OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone:

In 2019, Jenn earned the title of TBRI Practitioner through the Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development out of Texas Christian University.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a therapeutic model that trains caregivers to provide effective support and treatment for at-risk children. TBRI has been applied in orphanages, courts, residential treatment facilities, group homes, foster and adoptive homes, churches, and schools.

Jenn and her husband, Matt, are passionate champions of caring for orphans and vulnerable children.”


Is that fact, why she failed to second a motion made by fellow WASD board member Adam Welteroth to open a third party investigation into the WASD administration and its handling of the incident and the subsequent investigation?

By failing to second the motion, could it be argued Jennifer Lake, (mother of an adopted black son and author of, “I’M A WHITE WOMAN RAISING A BLACK SON. HERE’S MY PERSPECTIVE ON BLACK LIVES MATTER.”) was engaging in systemically racist behavior?

From OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone – PART III:

In the immediate aftermath of the publication of OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone – PART I and OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone – PART II Talk Williamsport continued an even deeper look into Jennifer Lake and her ascent to Williamsport Area School Board member.

A mountain of documents and background materials have been obtained, including Lake in her own words.

What has been discovered is quite remarkable and miraculous for someone who claims to advocate for children on a daily basis.

Has Jennifer Lake sat silent on issues of race because she is just too tired?

Jennifer Lake was contacted for this story on several occasions; to date she has not responded.

In OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone – PART I, the first statement I made was, “My argument is, Jennifer Lake you missed your moment!”

In fact Jennifer we are approaching the four year anniversary of an article you posted on your own website titled


published on July 14, 2016.

The article opens, “I have been fairly quiet about recent events in our country because honestly, I just feel so tired.”

Her next line eerily foreshadows what happened to George Floyd, “I feel as if I am emotionally suffocating at times.”

She is so “tired and emotionally suffocating” she waited four years to identify what she claims is systemic racism in the WASD.

Lake: “I am a white mother raising a black son alongside raising a white son.  

This doesn’t mean that I’ll ever be able to understand what it must feel like to be a black citizen in this country these days.  

But it does mean that I have a perspective that few have.”

Lake: “I have observed friends of mine dismiss “BLM” because they want to spread the message that All Lives Matter.  

Please hear me when I say that I agree…ALL lives DO matter.  But that’s an entirely different issue.  

When I say Black Lives Matter, my point of reference is the unfair and often times rude treatment

that I have seen my son be subject to.  

He is only 12 and we have a lifetime of experiences like this coming for us.”


JOHN DOE #1, who is black was only 14 when he suffered the indignity of being the victim of “criminal sexual misconduct” at the hands of a white attackeron your watch.

So as the mother of an adopted black son, why has Jennifer Lake NOT publicly expressed outrage at this incident?

More from OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone:

The indisputable timeline of insanity regarding the Myrtle Beach incident compared to the anti-racism Resolution unanimously approved last night defies logic.

  • WASD concludes investigation of Myrtle Beach incident June 5, 2018.
  • 19 months later – WASD issues Statement on handling of Myrtle Beach incident January 9, 2020.
  • George Floyd who has never been a student in the WASD is killed in Minnesota on May 25, 2020.
  • Less than 30 days later – WASD school board approves Anti-racism Resolution June 23, 2020
  • The anti-racism Resolution is based on national events including the death of George Floyd.


What about fellow board member Barbara Reeves (she is black) who shared with a constituent, “it happened before I joined the board”? What if the “criminal sexual misconduct” happened to her son – would she want the WASD board members to do something?

Barbara Reeves who recently championed the cause of silencing the public as WASD school board meetings in the public comment part of the meeting. Reeves husband Marwin was just appointed and approved to serve on the board of the Williamsport Education Foundation.

Is living in the same neighborhood as several members of the WAHS administration just too uncomfortable to make any waves?

So as the mother of a black son, why has Barbara Reeves NOT expressed outrage at this incident?

By staying silent is she also demonstrating systemic racism in the WASD?

What about former WASD school board member Spencer Sweeting and self proclaimed woke movement leader – why has he remained silent on the fact that JOHN DOE #1 is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white?

How about WASD solicitor Fred Holland (he is white) omitting in the WASD Statement from January 9, 2020 that JOHN DOE #1 is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white?

Fred Holland who characterized the 2018 incident as “indecent and inappropriate behavior”.

Did Title IX coordinator Susie Bigger (she is white) fail to address the fact that JOHN DOE #1 is Black and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 is white?

Is this why the law firm of Saxton & Stump was just hired by the WASD regarding a Title IX investigation?

“Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits sex-based discrimination and retaliation in education.

Although Title IX is most commonly known for its application to athletic programs,

the law applies to any education program or activity that receives Federal financial assistance.”

From the Saxton & Stump website, “Hon. Lawrence F. Stengel (Ret.), former Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, is a shareholder at Saxton & Stump and focuses his practice on internal investigations, arbitrations and mediations, monitorships and receiverships.

Current Practice

As Chair of the firm’s Internal Investigations practice, Judge Stengel leads a team of attorneys who conduct fair and thorough internal investigations for corporations, educational institutions, governmental agencies, municipalities and other organizations across the country. The team is also uniquely qualified to handle Title IX investigations and sexual misconduct grievances for individuals and higher education institutions, serving as counsel or hearing officers.”


How about the former Lycoming County Chief Detective and currently employed county detective Willie Weber; who kept the video depicting ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 who is white committing “criminal sexual misconduct acts” on JOHN DOE #1 who is Black in his desk drawer?

Weber defiantly answered this author in the summer of 2018 when confronted about sending said video to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina authorities; “we’re not going to do that.”

Weber characterized the incident as “a prank”.

Was this Willie Weber at the time demonstrating systemic racism in the Office of Lycoming County District Attorney Ken Osokow?

Ken Osokow’s son previously played baseball for Williamsport High School as did a son of Willie Weber. Both sons are white.

From Part XX and an excerpt from the Detective Narrative of Glenn Porter obtained from the Myrtle Beach Police Department via FOIA request:

Mr. Weber gave me a synopsis of events that took place after this was reported to him sometime in Mid-May of 2018. (redacted by MBPD)

Mr. Weber did not initially complete a report but facilitated the handling of this incident along with the school.

At the time, Mr. Weber did not see anything criminal based on Pennsylvania standards and the the matter appeared resolved, so he did not complete a report or refer this matter to MBPD.

Mr. Weber advised me on this date, that he would complete a report and copy the video footage of this incident to mail to me at (redacted by author).


Weber sent the video to the Myrtle Beach Police Department 5-months after the initial investigation accompanied with a report that was authored in October 2018 “from memory and very few notes.”

When Weber was interviewed by the Office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro he was represented by former Lycoming County District Attorney Mike Dinges.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro is white.

Mike Dinges was Lycoming County District Attorney when the case of Darrick Dixon (aka Darrick Rizzo) was adjudicated. According to court records and those familiar with the case Dinges accepted the plea deal and allowed Dixon to be sentenced by President Judge Nancy Butts in a timeframe where Megan’s Law was being contested in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Megan’s Law was subsequently ruled constitutional; however Dixon was able to escape being on the list.

According to the family of JOHN DOE#1, it is the same Darrick Dixon who reached out to them the same day as the original story in this series offering assistance. He subsequently provided the name of an attorney in Philadelphia. Using a fake e-mail account as recently as a month ago, Dixon attempted to provide false information to the family while trying to garner additional details.


In early May 2020, Ryan Gardner, Lycoming County District Attorney, referred the case to the Office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro. Shapiro then opened an investigation into the handling of the 2018 Myrtle Beach case. The subsequent OAG investigation found there were no rules, protocols or procedures as it relates to Lycoming County detectives.

“The OAG assumed jurisdiction of this investigation on May 27, 2020, at your request, and based upon an actual or apparent conflict of interest.  Following a lengthy and thorough investigation, the OAG has determined that insufficient evidence exists to justify any further action.  As such, we are closing our file.

As you may recall, the matter of this referral involved alleged hazing or assaults committed against minors in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 

While that location is beyond the jurisdiction of the OAG, as a result of the OAG’s investigation and cooperation with South Carolina officials, law enforcement action was taken in that jurisdiction for the criminal conduct committed there. 

The OAG was unable to determine whether any attempt to ‘cover-up’ the conduct occurred in Pennsylvania due to the failure of the District Attorney’s Office to create, implement, and enforce any policies governing the conduct of county detectives.”


Why did Mike Dinges when he was Lycoming County District Attorney fail to implement any type of oversight measures for detectives?

Mike Dinges now serves on the Juvenile Court Procedural Rules Committee. “The Juvenile Court Procedural Rules Committee advises the Supreme Court on matters relating to the procedural rules governing actions for juvenile delinquency and dependency courts.”

Mike Dinges was the Lycoming County District Attorney when the criminal case against Darrick Dixon was brought to sentencing. Dixon served 20-months in prison for his crimes against a then 14-year old female.

Dinges stated to this author in a previous article; “Darrick Dixon should never be allowed around kids.”

What did Mike Dinges do in his handling of the Dixon case to ensure his statement would hold any weight?


Would it surprise you that Willie Weber while working under then District Attorney Eric Linhardt referred to Dixon using a racial slur? A witness to the statement who worked for the Williamsport Bureau of Police informed Dixon of the statement. Dixon then had an attorney warn Linhardt of potential civil litigation based on racial bias against his client. Weber was removed from any investigations or cases involving Dixon after that.

Weber previously shared the preceding story with this author.


Mike Dinges is the husband of Christine Dinges. Christine is the sister of WASD Athletic Director Sean McCann. Sean McCann as athletic director hired and subsequently fired Darrick Dixon as the girls basketball coach at Williamsport Area High School. Christine Dinges paid for a cell phone for  her nephew (son of Sean McCann) at all times relevant to the 2018 WAHS Baseball Team trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

McCann was on the Williamsport Area High School Baseball Team trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the spring of 2018 and co-signed the Mingo Bay Classic Tournament entry form along with WAHS head principal Brandon Pardoe and WASD school board member Barbara Reeves neighborhood resident.

Pardoe was also on the Williamsport Area High School Baseball Team trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the spring of 2018.

Pardoe ran the WASD investigation into the “criminal sexual misconduct” that occurred.

From the OP-ED: Long past time for Dr. Bowers to resign as WASD Superintendent Wait, you know, like Brandon Pardoe (WAHS head principal) at the late March 2018 party at the beach house in South Carolina actually holding a beer in the presence of students he had oversight of.

The photo can also be found in Part XXII.

Pardoe subsequently waited 12 days to begin an investigation after having a CHILDLINE call made and referred to the office of Lycoming County District Attorney Ken Osokow and assigned to Chief Detective Willie Weber. Weber then informed Pardoe of the call.

Weber lives in the same neighborhood as Pardoe, Reeves and Zangara.

Sources have shared Director of Student Services Dr. Richard Poole (he is white) called out WAHS head principal Brandon Pardoe for making this a “racial issue.”

Pardoe and McCann allowed ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 to participate in District II/IV playoff games and ultimately received a gold medal as a District Champion.

Osokow, Dinges, Weber, Pardoe, McCann, Zangara, Poole and ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 are all white – JOHN DOE #1 is Black.


WAHS principal Roger Freed was brought in to assist with the investigation – he is white too and had previously served in ministry with Barbara Reeves at the church her husband is the Pastor of and where she serves as First Lady.

Freed is white.

Was the WAHS baseball coaching staff ever interviewed by Pardoe, Weber or the Office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro about the “criminal sexual misconduct” that occurred?

From Part I:

District states: here is the Item 1 – Travel List Team Coaches of district employees, coaches, and volunteers who either accompanied the team to Myrtle Beach or were present as parents.

Numbers 1-6 were coaches or volunteer coaches.

Number 7 was a volunteer statistician.

Numbers 8-9 are district employees who also had children on the team.

  1. Ryan Miller (Head Baseball Coach)
  2. David Heller
  3. Tariq Moore
  4. Kyle Schneider
  5. Nick Caringi
  6. Joel Worthington
  7. Randy Zangara
  8. Brandon Pardoe (WAHS Head High School Principal)
  9. Sean McCann (WAHS Athletic Director)

The coaching staff is all white with the exception of Tariq Moore who is black. Moore has filed an Unfair Labor Practice claim against the WASD.

At the time of the trip in 2018 Randy Zangara was a WASD administrator before moving onto a position at Penn College.

Ryan Miller, 2018 WAHS head baseball coach as WASD Right to Know Officer Wanda Erb outlined in a written RTKL response falsely claimed to not be in possession of a “room assignment list”.

Wanda Erb, years later had to contradict not only Miller but herself as the WASD was always in possession of a “room assignment list”.

Wanda Erb is white.


Ryan Miller who was allegedly threatened by Rickey Stryker who is black received an immediate response from Brandon Pardoe and a letter from WASD solicitor Fred Holland banning Stryker from WASD property and facilities.


Ryan Miller is a twice convicted DUI offender and still served as a Little League World Series alternate team host in 2016 without any background check vetting.

Willie Weber is a long standing Little League World Series team host. Former WAHS assistant baseball coach Nick Caringi and long time Little League employee was also on the 2018 WAHS baseball team trip to Myrtle Beach. Caringi also played a huge role in the banquet hosted at the Little League complex in 2018 honoring the WAHS baseball team.

Jamie Joy who is the son-in-law of attorney George Lepley was previously fired by Little League after many years. Joy was also on the 2018 WAHS baseball team trip to Myrtle Beach to see his son play, the grandson of attorney George Lepley.

Little League CEO Steve Keener weighed in on the national discourse on race relations in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd,

“We’re not going to be afraid to use our voice if we think it is appropriate”

within the context of the Little League program, Keener said.

Hugh E. Tanner, chairman of Little League International’s board of directors, recently sent a letter to district and league volunteers.

“We stand with the African American members of our Little League family and are here to support you, your families, your leagues and your communities,” the letter states.
Tanner cited the millions who have come together to support Black Lives Matter after the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
“Little League International stands with them,” Tanner wrote. “There is no place for racism and hate in this world and that certainly includes on Little League fields in every community.

So why did Little League International and its Board of Directors choose the death of George Floyd to say something when they had nearly three years to stand up for JOHN DOE#1 who is Black?

Little League CEO Steve Keener is white and had children who played in the Williamsport High School baseball program.


Dr. Timothy Bowers, WASD Superintendent (he is white), thanked Pardoe for the update in an email exchange in May/June 2018.

From the OP-ED: Long past time for Dr. Bowers to resign as WASD Superintendent:


WAHS Head Principal Brandon Pardoe then informs Superintendent Dr. Timothy Bowers and his secretary Susie Neidig in the evening hours of May 30, 2018 of details about the “investigation.”

“We started the investigation with regard to the video taken on the Myrtle Beach trip after speaking with the parent and student today. I can give you more information if we could talk. I contacted the home of (redacted) who is the student that was videoed doing the act to the other student. I requested to meet with them with their son. They appear to be getting an attorney to meet as well. I would imagine that this is something that we would want to reach out to our solicitor about and update to join in a mutual meeting. I do have a recommendation for the interim until we can meet that I would like to run by you.

If we can talk tomorrow that would be great.”

Brandon Pardoe, Ed.D

You know, the same Brandon Pardoe, Dr. Bowers thanked for updating him on an investigation that began May 30, 2018; 12 days after the initial Childline call was made.

The morning of June 1, 2018 Superintendent Bowers replied to Pardoe:

“Ok thanks for the follow-up”

An iPhone the WASD taxpayers foot the bill for.


Bowers in the WASD Statement from January 9, 2020 reads in part:

“The Williamsport Area School District does not condone inappropriate and indecent behavior.”

The same WASD Statement falsely claimed the WASD resource officers were involved in the investigation, SRO Jordan Stoltzfus and his fellow SRO  are both white. and members of  the Williamsport Bureau of Police.

JOHN DOE #1 former teammate Cody Shimp (brother of Rickey Stryker) shared a Facebook post on September 7, 2018 in light of reporting on the Myrtle Beach incident; in part he stated –

“No ignorant parents because their kid wasn’t good enough to play for the program.

They’d kill to be a part of a legendary community that sticks together until the end.”

Cody Shimp is currently a member of the St. Bonaventure baseball team and holds a leadership position as the “Atlantic 10 representative to the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), a two-year term that began July 1.”

In the aftermath of Lycoming County District Attorney Ryan Gardner confirming the case had been referred to Attorney General Josh Shapiro; the next day on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 3:08:03 PM, WASD Solicitor Fred Holland emailed Timothy Bowers, WASD Superintendent, Susie Bigger; WASD Assistant Superintendent and Wanda Erb, WASD Business Administrator and Open Records Officer regarding “Myrtle Beach.”

Date: Wednesday, May 6, 2020 3:08:03 PM

“Hi Tim and Susie,

I spoke with Ryan Gardner today, and he did in fact issue the press release that Bartley quoted.

I have also read it carefully, and am still not troubled by what is in the press release.

The matter is being referred so that no one will be able to question the impartiality of the person doing the investigation from this point forward.

An example of why this is wise is the fact that Willy Weber is employed in the DA’s office, and has been made one of the objects of criticism, especially in recent reports. The AG has no relationship with Willy, whereas Ryan does.

I also note that the release says that Ryan’s investigation of possible other victims or incidents did not yield anything.

I’ll be happy to chat with your further about this if you think it is necessary. However, I see no reason for any of us to respond.

Be well and stay safe!


Fred A. Holland
Murphy, Butterfield, & Holland, P.C.”

The subsequent investigation conducted by the Office of Attorney General Josh Shapiro did in fact yield information about a second victim.

Williamsport Mayor Derek Slaughter is fully aware John Doe #1 is Black and his attacker is white. From the OP-ED: Getting Slaughtered:

The hope going into the election last year, was that his platform of, “transparency, efficiency and accountability” were actually firmly held beliefs

and not punch lines on a yard sign or a billboard.

All of the warning signs of insincerity were there leading up to the election.

Slaughter had committed to a debate with his challenger Eric Beiter for late October at Lycoming College

similar to the one held with the Lycoming County Commissioner candidates that month.

On multiple occasions leading up to the debate Slaughter gave me his word he would be there;

until he decommitted in an e-mail and then went radio silent.

On reason and belief, Slaughter decommitted so as to not face questions surrounding his knowledge of the Myrtle Beach case and the fact John Doe #1 is Black and his attacker is white.

Slaughter to this day remains silent on the case.


“The end,” as Shimp noted is upon the parties involved in failing to provide justice for JOHN DOE #1.

Education careers are now at an end, political careers are now at an end, their status in the community is now at an end.

The immediate firings of the following individuals are required:

Willie Weber (Lycoming County Detective)

Steve Keener (Little League CEO)

Fred Holland (WASD Solicitor)

Timothy Bowers (WASD Superintendent)

Susie Bigger (WASD Assistant Superintendent)

Wanda Erb (WASD Right-to-Know Officer)

Dr. Richard Poole (WASD Director of Student Services )

Brandon Pardoe (WAHS Head High School Principal)

Roger Freed (WAHS High School Principal)

Sean McCann (WAHS Athletic Director)

Susan A. Neidig

Kyle Schneider

David Heller

Tariq Moore

Nick Caringi

Joel Worthington

Randy Zangara

Jamie Joy (already fired by Little League)

Spencer Sweeting (former WASD board member)


The immediate resignations of the following individuals from their elective office are required.

Williamsport Mayor Derek Slaughter

The entire WASD school board Adam Welteroth, Lisa Nible, Barbara Reeves, Patrick Dixon and Cody Derr, Star Poole, Dr. Jane Penman, Lori Baer and Jennifer Lake.


The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania should open investigations into the following individuals, immediately:

Former Lycoming County District Attorneys related to the OAG finding:

The OAG was unable to determine whether any attempt to ‘cover-up’ the conduct occurred in Pennsylvania due to the failure of the District Attorney’s Office to create, implement, and enforce any policies governing the conduct of county detectives.”

Tom Marino, Mike Dinges, Eric Linhardt and Ken Osokow

Attorney Fred Holland (WASD Solicitor)

Attorney Jeff Rowe (WASD Solicitor)

Attorney George Lepley

Attorney Thom Marshall

Attorney Allen Page, IV


The current members of the WASD school board, WASD employees Brandon Pardoe, Roger Freed, Sean McCann, Wanda Erb as well as WASD Solicitor Fred Holland, Jeff Rowe, Jeff Litts, legal counsel for ALLEGED PERPETRATOR #1 George Lepley, former WAHS head baseball coach Ryan Miller through his legal counsel, Nick Caringi through Little League counsel (same as Ryan Miller counsel), Williamsport Mayor Derek Slaughter, Ryan Gardner, Lycoming County District Attorney and the Office of Attorney General Josh Shapiro were all contacted for comment on this story.

At this writing, none of the parties listed above has responded.


From PART XXIX – On Monday morning an attempt was made by this author to clarify the role of current WASD solicitor and Union County Magistrate Judge Jeff Rowe in the Right to Know Law responses at his Union County Courthouse office.

Having previously been advised by Rowe, by phone to contact his office at Murphy, Butterfield and Holland and being unsuccessful; it only seemed right to give him an opportunity to defend his actions, in-person.

Earlier today, Rowe was presented with the fact that WASD Right-to-Know Law responses include his name.

At that point, this author identified himself and the reason for being there; Rowe interrupted and said, “you are not to be doing this here; these are separate matters.”

He added; “as I said before; you need to contact my other office.” 

Author: “I have called and emailed your office as you asked me to; and no one has responded.”

Rowe responded;

“If you are not getting a response; that is our response.”


Now that EVERYONE knows the facts of this case – it is time for JUSTICE to be served for JOHN DOE #1.


John Doe #1 is Black – his attackers are white is a developing story on
