Arizona Maricopa County Assessor Paul Petersen, who was indicted in three different states for illegally trafficking children through his adoption agency, has requested that his trial in Arkansas be delayed for almost a year. He is currently free on bond. The hub of Petersen's alleged illegal activities was Maricopa County, in Arizona, where he serves as the County Assessor, an elected official. Authorities in Arizona have been unsuccessful in removing him from office so far, but they recently seized many of his assets. So far, no one in the mainstream corporate-sponsored media seems to be doing any investigative work on their own to try to uncover this scandal further. It is hard to believe that Paul Petersen could have accomplished this operation on his own, especially since he served in a public office as County Assessor for Maricopa County. Health Impact News has conducted its own investigation, and if federal law enforcement is serious about stopping child trafficking flowing through Arizona, Mr. Petersen's connections should be investigated. What about the judges who approved these adoptions? What connection does Paul Petersen's case have to former Arkansas Senator Linda Collins-Smith's murder? Here is what our own investigations have uncovered so far.
Is There an Arizona and Mormon Connection to Child Trafficking in Arkansas and Senator Linda Collins-Smith’s Murder?
Episode 6 of The Medical Kidnap Show aired on November 10, 2019, on KFNX Talk Radio 1100 out of Phoenix at 9 p.m. Sunday night. (11 p.m. EST) The guest interviewed on the show was Kathy Hall. Kathy is a grandmother who was living in Arkansas when her daughter was tragically killed by a hit-and-run vehicle being driven by an illegal alien. Her daughter left behind a young child, and Kathy has been fighting to get access to her granddaughter ever since. Getting no help from attorneys in Arkansas, Kathy turned to an Arkansas State Senator, Linda Collins-Smith, to help her get her granddaughter back. The two became close friends until Linda Collins-Smith was murdered in Arkansas, within hours after returning from a week-long trip to Arizona, where she was reportedly investigating child trafficking. Kathy then found out through a Social Media post that her granddaughter had already been adopted out to a Mormon family who then left the State of Arkansas and moved to Wisconsin. The attorney who allegedly arranged the adoption was Paul Petersen, an adoption attorney who was also the Maricopa County Assessor in Arizona, and who has since been indicted on federal charges in three states, including Arizona and Arkansas, for human trafficking.
Episode 5 of The Medical Kidnap Show aired on KFNX Talk Radio 1100 out of Phoenix on Sunday night, November 3, 2019. Our guest for this show was Lori Ford, the head of the DCS Oversight Group, which is a group of volunteers who attend meetings regarding Department of Children Services issues in Arizona. The group also has "court watchers" who attend Dependency Court hearings as parent advocates and to observe how these parents are being treated in Dependency Court. When asked why the members of the group provided their services to families and others free of charge, she replied: "The reason that we do this, is it's so important. This is the future of our country, the future of our nation. And family means everything to all of us. So that's why we do it. We see so many rights being violated in this dependency court system." This past week (Tuesday, October 29, 2019), the Arizona Human Trafficking Council conducted a meeting that was open to the public, and Lori Ford and other members of the DCS Oversight Group attended. Lori addressed the Council, pointing out that while the Council had exposed websites that trafficked kids, such as BackPage.com, which was shut down by the FBI last year, that the Council had not addressed another website in Arizona that trafficks kids, the DCS .gov website: "Children's Heart Gallery." "The children who are on this Heart Gallery, which is part of the DCS website, are children that are in DCS custody. They're foster kids, they're kids in group homes. This is a forced adoption, a forced re-homing if you will, website, of children who are in DCS custody. They're pimping out kids online."
Starting Sunday, November 3, 2019, The Medical Kidnap Show will air on KFNX Talk Radio 1100 broadcast out of Phoenix at 9 p.m. local time (8 pm PST - 11 pm EST). This Sunday's show will look at the question: "Does Doug Ducey's and Cindy McCain's Arizona Human Trafficking Council actually stop human trafficking in Arizona, or contribute to it?"
The Medical Kidnap Show Episode aired on KFNX radio 1100 in Phoenix Thursday October 24th. Host Rick Wood and show producer Brian Shilhavy welcomed guest Beth Breen on the show to talk about the Devani case, as Beth Breen was the contracted driver who transported young Devani from her foster home to visit her parents until David Frodsham, the foster father, was arrested for child pornography and child sex abuse. While David Frodsham has been convicted and is currently in prison for raping and sexually abusing Devani since she was 2 years old, and while Samantha Osteraas has also been convicted and is now in prison for scalding 80% of Devani's body to the point where she lost all of her toes, where is Devani today? Why is her family not allowed any access to her? Why has the lawsuit against the State and the State officials and agencies who are responsible for letting this happening been stagnant for over a year? Listen to the show as we discuss these issues, and where Brian Shilhavy says that there is one major action that can be taken today to put a serious dent into the corrupt foster care industry that continues to traffick these children.
The residents of Arizona have been in shock for the past week, and the rest of the nation has looked on in horror as local mainstream news in Arizona has reported about a federal investigation that led to the arrest of Paul Petersen, the Maricopa County Assessor and a Mormon adoption attorney, who is being detained by federal officials for trafficking children from the Marshall Islands. The Honolulu Civil Beat was probably the first media source to expose the black market illegal adoption practices of Paul Petersen before his arrest last week, reporting on it last year. The Civil Beat has reported on how the women from the Marshall Islands were recruited to give up their babies for adoption in America based on false promises. Civil Beat’s investigation showed how, despite reforms two decades ago to give the Marshall Islands control over all international adoptions, U.S. attorneys such as Petersen were ignoring a treaty between the two nations to fly pregnant women to the U.S. to hand over their newborns to American couples. Many Marshallese birth mothers said they did not know they’d be severing all connections to their children, a form of adoption largely unknown in their culture. U.S. Attorney Dak Kees said Petersen told Marshallese women to lie to U.S. Customs officials about their reason for traveling to the U.S. Once here, the pregnant women lived in overcrowded conditions, sometimes four to a room or on the floor without a bed. “Make no mistake, this is the purest form of human trafficking,” he said. Petersen charged adoptive couples $35,000 to $40,000, authorities said. But the Marshallese birth mothers only got about $10,000 — sometimes less, after the costs of travel, health care and housing were siphoned off. But Petersen may be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Arizona politicians involved in trafficking children. Listen to this week's Medical Kidnap Show to get an insider perspective from a whistleblower, who will reveal things you probably are not going to read in the mainstream media.
Arizona Senator Threatened by Fellow Lawmaker for Stating That Foster Kids are Being Sold into Sexual Slavery
Local media sources in Arizona have reported that State Senator David Farnsworth was threatened by a fellow lawmaker for stating his concern that the Arizona Department of Child Safety is facilitating the global sex trafficking of children from Arizona foster care. Concerned for his safety, Senator Farnsworth reported her to the Department of Public Safety.
The second episode of the Medical Kidnap Show aired on KFNX 1100 Radio in Phoenix on October 10, 2019. Host Rick Wood and producer Brian Shilhavy started off the show discussing how most of the nation's child sex slaves that are trafficked in the U.S. come out of the nation's Foster Care system. Next, Neal Sutz was interviewed on the show. Neal is a father who grew up and lived most of his life in Arizona, and married into the Mormon Church. Neal gained national fame back in 2004 when he attempted to be a guest on the popular Dr. Phil show, and claims he was discriminated against due to his past history with mental health. He ended up suing Dr. Phil and the producer, Oprah Winfrey, successfully under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Neal was trained as a paralegal, and he won his lawsuit against Dr. Phil as a pro-se litigant. Now, he is suing his former Mormon in-laws in Arizona with a $200 million defamation lawsuit, for what he claims has led to his two sons being medically kidnapped in Switzerland and held as political prisoners, as he attempted to become a whistleblower in Arizona to reveal child sex trafficking among the Mormon leadership there. His former in-laws have responded to his pro-se lawsuit by hiring the former Solicitor General of Arizona, Dominic Draye, who is now practicing law at the Greenberg Traurig law firm, to defend them.

4-Month-Old Arizona Baby Dies After Being Taken from Mother and Put into Home with Two Foster Dads Who Adopted 15 Kids
Reporter Dianna M. Náñez brings us the tragic story of a 4-month-old baby girl who was loved by her parents, but taken away by Arizona CPS and given to a foster home where two gay men lived, and who have adopted 15 kids. The little baby girl died last week when one of the foster dads left baby Samora in a hot car for hours, allegedly forgetting that she was still in the car. According to the report in the Arizona Republic, the foster dad has not been arrested. In fact, the Arizona Republic has written very positive articles about the gay couple describing how they are wonderful parents. In all the years I have been covering medical kidnapping stories out of Arizona, I don't recall another case where a child died in foster care and the local media decided to write positive articles about the foster parents who had custody of the child and neglected to keep the child safe. The mother claims the baby was taken away because the baby allegedly tested positive for drugs, even though she herself tested negative for any drugs. And like many other medical kidnapping stories we have covered, this mother had other children in the foster care system that had also been removed from her home, and she was allegedly told that because of this fact, this little baby would be taken away from her also.
