The ominous date with justice now looming in the near future of Alexander, 13th Duke of Manchester has evidently sent him and his duchess, Laura into a frenzy of threats and lies in a renewal of their attempts to intimidate Wendy into handing over her daughter to them.
The motive is not affection for their daughter, but a driving need for funds. In this case, most likely to be used to pay court ordered costs resulting from Alex's conviction for passing a bad check (CASE NO. 11F21867X), and his conviction for pulling a gun on two little girls. (CASE NO. 12F20159X) See Time Line for more information.
At one time Wendy, an emotionally normal person, was intimidated by threats from Alex but that time is now long past. She came to understand psychopaths lie with complete conviction. Threats she would be arrested, lose her children, among others never materialized.
Last night a series of text messages arrived in response to action taken by Wendy, at the request of their daughter, to block Alex from contacting the 14 year old. Wendy reported the girl is upset by the ugly messages she received but was reluctant, until now, to cut off all contact. Wendy's son cut off all contact some time ago.
Wendy felt it appropriate to inform Alex of their daughter's request.
We have said in the past for Alex it is all about the money. These communications say little about the children but much about Alex's need for funds.
In addition, this morning Wendy received an admission of a crime, long suspected but not proven, by Laura in 2008.
This is the period when Laura had left Alex and was living with Wendy and her children while trying to renew relations with some previous boyfriends. In response to questions Laura asked, Wendy showed her Alexander's financial records, which she received as part of the routine exchange of records during their divorce.
As most people know, disclosure is part of the process of divorce, though Alex had resisted this in every way possible. Alex knew Wendy's financial information, including how much she earns. This is a modest amount. Wendy was startled to discover Alex, who had demanded he receive alimony, had over half a million dollars in the bank. He had been claiming to be penniless.
This morning this was received, apparently from Laura, denoted in RED:
“NO WENDY I HAVE THE ACCOUNTING FROM ALL THE FUNDS YOU HAVE RECEIVED FROM THE TRUST”
These records were routinely supplied through the divorce process, but what Laura is actually referring to is something quite different. Wendy receives $1,000 a month for support for her daughter from the Trust.
“ALEX AND I ARE TAKING YOU TO COURT FOR ALIANATING THE CHILDREN FROM ALEX AND I”
Neither Laura or Alex, or Morgan for that matter, can spell.
YOU HAVE GIVEN ALL THE FUNDS TO YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER I HAVE YOUR FATHERS & mothers bank account information”
Wendy has never seen her parent's financial records so has no idea how Alex and Laura could have gotten possession of these. She suspects this is a straight lie as she has never had the money to help her parents financially and this is very clear from even a cursory examination of her own financial records. The truth has no relationship to assertions by either Laura or Alex.
“you forget that I stayed with you and it was amazing how the children showed me All of the documents you have and I took them to kinkoes and had every thing copied to disk and photo copied”
Now, this is an admission of a crime. Wendy, not the kids, shows Laura Alex's financial records and after Laura left Wendy realized these had disappeared. Laura is far too cheap to pay for copying, and all indications were while Laura was staying with Wendy were that Laura was entirely broke.
“You for get to much “
Wendy has an excellent memory, and also copies of her own records. The support she receives from the Trust is small, but Wendy uses it to ensure her daughter has the things which let a child know she is loved and cherished.
“The kids told me How much they hate you I had to force you into alowing Ash to see her father “
Completely untrue. The kids love their mother very much and appreciate the many things she does for them, deferring things she would like for herself. Since she is a loving mother Wendy has refused to involve the children in this unpleasantness. She wants to preserve what she can of a happy childhood for them.
“a lot more will be Coming out in court”
Alex has no money for an attorney. If he did he would have taken care of the rather small amounts owed to the court. We suspect Craig Franklin paid for Susan Bush, but are interested in discovering evidence in the matter.
“Alex has a very powerful lawyer and will not have a chance”
Yes, it is true. Alex does not have a chance of continuing to get away with these lies. But we suspect this is not what Laura, if Laura wrote this, meant to convey. If you would like to guess what Alex/Laura mean here, please let us know.
“YOU ARE A COMEN PIECE OF TRAILER TRASH THE SAME AS THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY”
Wendy's family is comprised of hard-working people who pay their own way and do the right thing. They value honesty, kindness, and good character. Of those involved here the ones who exhibit the characteristics associated with 'trailer trash,' stealing, fraudulent behavior, laziness, and the inability to hold a job, are Alex, Laura and Morgan.
