KFNX Talk Radio in Phoenix Airs the First Medical Kidnap Show Despite Pressure Not to Air It

The first episode of the new Medical Kidnap Show aired last night (October 3, 2019) on KFNX Talk Radio 1100 in Phoenix. The show can be watched from the Medical Kidnap YouTube channel, or it can be downloaded as a podcast. Just prior to the show, the station manager was pressured to not air it, as he received accusations of us publishing "fake news" on this topic. Fortunately, he did not give in to this pressure and allowed the show to air. The MedicalKidnap.com website was started in 2014 due to the volume of stories we were discovering of families losing their children to Child Protective Services in Arizona. Arizona has the highest rate of removing children from their parents in the U.S.

Arizona Mom Melissa Diegel Suffering in Jail

Malinda Sherwyn, who has been a court watcher and child advocate for 26 years, was interviewed on Northwest Liberty News to give the public an update on Melissa Diegel, who is currently confined to a jail cell in Arizona where her health problems are allegedly not being addressed. The medical kidnapping of Melissa Diegel's two girls is the story that launched MedicalKidnap.com back in 2014. Her two daughters had special medical needs, and when Melissa started questioning doctors and seeking a second opinion, she was charged with Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. After losing custody of her two children, she moved to Florida, but was recently arrested and brought back to Arizona as a "fugitive from justice" and now resides in a jail cell in Arizona, as her health deteriorates.  Watch the interview with Malinda Sherwyn to get the latest updates on this sad story.

Defying Gag Order, Woman Who Drove Arizona Girl Raped and Burned in Foster Care to Supervised Visits with Parents Speaks Out on Arizona Corruption

Beth Breen, the driver contracted by Arizona DCS to drive young Devani from the foster home where it was later learned she was repeatedly raped by her foster parent who was arrested for running a child pornographic and child sex trafficking ring out of his state-approved foster home, to her parents home 90 miles away each week for a 2-hour supervised visitation, was recently interviewed by Jim White at Northwest Liberty News. Breen states that she is under a gag order and not supposed to speak about the case, but she "doesn't care" because the gag order is unconstitutional. This is one of the most horrific cases Health Impact News has ever covered, and one of the most-read stories ever published on MedicalKidnap.com. Breen gives an update on the current situation in the interview, and states that Devani has still not been returned to her parents, or to her grandmother who has allegedly taken her petition all the way to the Arizona Supreme Court. One of the most incredible statements that Breen gives during the interview, is when she recalls her time in jail with Merissa Hamilton because they were peacefully protesting in Phoenix against the abuses committed against Devani by Arizona DCS in this case, and she said they talked to the other women who were in jail to find out why they there: "While we were in jail, we interviewed a lot of women in jail and asked them why they were there. When we told them what we were doing, they stood up and applauded us, because out of every women that we interviewed, their charges were drugs, and the reason they turned to drugs was (because) their children were taken away. And they fought and they fought, and they finally just gave up. Because you can't win in this system."

Arizona Dad Fighting for His Two Sons Sues Mormon Business Leader and Alleged Child Sex Abusers for $200 Million

Neal Sutz, an Arizona father who left the U.S. to try and protect his sons whom he claims were in danger of being sexually abused by his former Mormon in-laws, has filed a $200 million defamation lawsuit in Arizona against his former brother-in-law Damian Creamer, whom Sutz claims is "one of the richest, most politically influential men in the state of Arizona." The lawsuit names other defendants among Sutz's former in-laws that he claims slandered him, resulting in the loss of custody of his two sons just after they fled the U.S. and arrived in Switzerland, where Neal Sutz holds a dual citizenship due to his family being from Switzerland. His two special needs sons have been in captivity for over 2 years in Switzerland group homes, and Sutz claims that their health and well-being are deteriorating quickly, and he fears that without U.S. intervention for these American citizens suffering in Switzerland, his sons may not survive much longer. According to the lawsuit, filed with the Superior Court of Arizona in Maricopa County, Neal Sutz found out that his former wife, Cortnie Helen Creamer Sutz, along with "her numerous siblings," were sexually abused as a children "for decades" by Damian Parnell Creamer and others, whom Sutz attempted to have reported to authorities for their alleged crimes against minors. It was Sutz's insistence to his wife that they turn in the members of her family committing sexual crimes against children to the authorities that Sutz claims resulted in the beginning of her family defaming his character and ruining his reputation. Neal Sutz writes: "Damian Creamer controls the political landscape in Arizona by circumventing campaign financing laws and making contributions through family members and friends. He owns property in Paradise Valley, along with other family members, and their neighbors include such notable public figures such as Governor Ducey, and Backpage founders Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Before they were shut down, Backpage was reportedly running up to 75% of the U.S. sex trafficking through its website. Given Damian's past actions to try to silence me and destroy my reputation to hide his family secrets of child sex abuse, using the massive resources he has through his businesses, I think a federal investigation is warranted. Who knows, maybe even the current federal investigation into Jeffrey Epstein will reveal associations to pedophile networks in Arizona as well."

American Dad Escapes Arizona with Two Sons Only to Have them Medically Kidnapped in Switzerland

An American father, Neal Sutz, with dual citizenship in the United States and in Switzerland, fled Arizona in 2017 with his wife and two sons to start a new life in Switzerland, after he claims his life was ruined and his two children were in danger in Arizona, due to his wife's family. His wife is allegedly part of an influential family in the Mormon Church in Arizona. She claims, and has testified in court, that she and other members of her family were sexually abused as children, and she feared her own children were in danger. Both boys are special needs children needing medical care, and shortly after arriving in Switzerland, they were allegedly medically kidnapped under the authority of Swiss child protective services (SPMi) after their mother experienced a psychotic breakdown in Geneva. SPMi brought in an American psychiatrist living in Geneva, Dr. Daniel Schechter, to handle the Sutz case. One of Dr. Schechter's special interests is the effect of mothers with post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) on their children. He was the winner of an award for this work shortly after taking on the Sutz boys' case, and continues to win awards for his work on studying the effects of mothers with PTSD on their children. Neal has been fighting the system for over 2 years to try and get his children back, and even took out a full page advertisement in the Washington Times to publish a letter written to President Donald Trump asking him to intervene in Switzerland. He does not believe President Trump or anyone in his administration ever saw it. He believes there are powerful forces working against him to prevent his children from being returned to him, and he has written a book detailing this case: SOS – SCREAM OF SILENCE – A TRUE STORY! STILL HAPPENING NOW! Before his marriage into the Mormon Church, Neal Sutz was an accomplished author and film producer, being an expert and advocate regarding the rights of those diagnosed with mental health issues. He received notoriety 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). Today, he is alone and almost penniless as he continues his efforts to regain custody of his two sons in Geneva, Switzerland, fighting a system he believes is too powerful for him alone to overcome, and he wants the world to know his story.

Arizona DCS Arrests Melissa Diegel as “Fugitive from Justice” While Living in Florida

Melissa Diegel is an Arizona mother who had her two daughters medically kidnapped back in 2014 for disagreeing with their doctors. Her story was covered by Health Impact News and inspired the beginning of our MedicalKidnap.com website. The Daily Caller is reporting that Diegel is being charged in an eight count indictment, and has been extradited from Florida, where she has lived since 2017, and is now incarcerated in an Arizona jail. Diegel lost her long battle with the State of Arizona and never had her two daughters returned. But apparently Arizona was not content to let Diegel move on with her life, and is now charging her with "child abuse" for seeking medical treatment for her daughters from 2011 through 2014, and prosecuting her as a "fugitive from justice." Diegel stated that she suspects Arizona may be worried about a lawsuit, since her oldest daughter is about to turn 18.

Court: Arizona DCS Errors and Lies Caused a Father to Lose Rights to his Child

Sloppy work, lack of evidence and outright lies caused a father to lose parental rights to his daughter, the Court of Appeals argued in an opinion that criticizes the work of nearly everyone involved in the four-year-long case. The Department of Child Safety, not the father, is to blame for circumstances that led to a juvenile-court decision last year to sever the father's parental rights, the appeals court wrote. "(A)ny perceived lack of a bond between Melody and Father was not because of Father's lack of effort, but because of DCS's delay, contact restrictions and substantial failure to try to unify Melody with Father," the three-judge panel wrote.

Judge Orders Children Returned to Parents Who Did not Take Child with Fever to Emergency Room

In a story out of Arizona that has received national attention, Judge Timothy J. Ryan ordered the children of a Chandler, Arizona couple returned home more than two months after police broke down their door at 1 a.m. to remove the children simply because the mother did not take one of them to an emergency room to check on a fever. In a turn of events that might be due to the public outrage over this case, Judge Ryan reportedly went against the recommendation of the assistant attorney general representing the Arizona Department of Child Safety who wanted the children to remain in state custody. While the children are all home for now by court order, the State of Arizona still retains custody of the children, and the legal battle continues for the children, even though there are no charges against the parents due to a lack of evidence.

Arizona Judge Orders Lawmaker and Media Out of Courtroom in Case Where Police Kicked Down Door Because Feverish Child was not Taken to Hospital

An Arizona Judge recently ordered state Representative Kelly Townsend and the local media to leave the courtroom during the trial of the Chandler Arizona family who lost all 3 of their children for failing to take one of them to the hospital regarding a fever. Police broke down their door at 1 a.m. in the morning and forcibly removed all three children. According to the Arizona Republic, Judge Timothy J. Ryan ordered one of their reporters and Rep. Townsend to "immediately" leave an April 10 pretrial hearing in the case. The judge was apparently upset over the media coverage this trial was receiving. This is consistent with how Arizona judges have acted in cases involving the State of Arizona removing children from their homes unjustly, as Health Impact News has been ordered several times in the past few years to take down our stories representing the families and victims of such actions. However, Health Impact News has never complied with such orders, as they violate the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

Was Arizona Family that had Police Break Down Their Door at 1 A.M. Targeted by Medical Community Because They Don’t Vaccinate Their Children?

A story out of Arizona that we first reported at the beginning of March has received national attention, due to video footage of police breaking down the family's door in the middle of the night because the parents did not take one of their children who had a fever to the local hospital at the request of a doctor. The police and social workers removed all 3 children from the home. In our original coverage of this story, we mentioned a quote from the parents that they did not vaccinate their children, but the parents did not, at the time, think this was a factor in their removal. In a follow up report published in the Arizona Republic by Dianna M. Náñez after the parents' first court hearing, Arizona Representative Kelly Townsend, who attended the court hearing, stated: “It was brought to my attention that these parents may have been targeted by the medical community because they hadn’t vaccinated their children.” Arizona law allows for parents to opt out of vaccines for their children for religious or medical reasons. Townsend said parents who don’t vaccinate their children because of medical concerns aren’t criminals and shouldn’t be treated as such. She worried physicians were using it as a reason to refer parents to DCS. “I think if DCS decides to use this as a factor they would be violating a parent’s right to have a personal exemption, a religious exemption and perhaps a medical exemption,” she said.
