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.
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 Adoptive Mother Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison for Scalding Young Foster Girl Who was Part of Pedophile Ring
The Arizona woman convicted of scalding a little girl placed in her care by Child Protective Services has been sentenced to 15 years in prison, followed by 15 years probation. Samantha Osteraas could have received up to a 30 year sentence at her hearing on December 3, 2018, but Superior Court Judge James Marner of Pima County felt that Osteraas "deserved some leniency," according to the Arizona Daily Star. A group of concerned citizens called the AZ DCS Oversight Group says that they tried to submit a Victim Impact Statement to the court, but were refused. The judge's clerk threatened to throw the group representative out of the courtroom if the document was distributed, but the group had already given it to various media representatives before giving it to the clerk. Osteraas was found guilty in October of reckless child abuse for waiting for several hours before calling 911 after then 5 year old Devani was scalded in the bathtub. Devani suffered 3rd degree burns to more than 70% of her body and had to be placed into a medically induced coma. She lost all 10 of her toes and has undergone 29 surgeries since the crime against her almost 2 years ago. During the trial, Devani, now 7, testified that Osteraas held her down in the bathtub with a pink towel.
The Arizona woman accused of scalding her adoptive child causing third degree burns to 80% of her body resulting in the amputation of all 10 toes has been found guilty of 2 of the 3 charges brought against her. Samantha Osteraas of Tucson, Arizona, faces between 10 and 24 years in prison for hurting Devani, the little girl that the Arizona Department of Child Services placed into her care after removing her from a foster home where she was being abused in a pedophilia pornography ring. A Pima County jury of 9 women and 3 men deliberated for 8 hours before reaching their verdict on Friday afternoon, October 19, 2018. According to News 4 Tucson, Osteraas: "...was found not guilty for the first count of child abuse. However, the jury did find her guilty for the lesser charge of reckless child abuse. For the second child abuse count, she was found guilty." One of the court watchers who was present for the emotional trial said that the jury decided that she was not guilty of "negligent child abuse," which was the first count of abuse. They stopped short of saying that she burned Devani intentionally. They did, however, find that Samantha Osteraas was guilty of delaying treatment after the burns occurred.
Trial Begins for Little Arizona Girl Placed with Pedophiles in Foster Care and Burned by Adoptive Mom
A woman who was approved by the State of Arizona to adopt a child out of the foster care system is on trial for child abuse. Samantha Osteraas faces 2 counts of child abuse for scalding a little girl entrusted to her care, causing 3rd degree burns to almost 80% of her body, causing all 10 of her toes to be amputated, and nearly costing the child's life. During the trial, which is expected to end this week, 7-year-old Devani took the stand and told a jury that Osteraas held her down in the bathtub with a pink towel, according to the Arizona Daily Star. She is only 7 years old, but the beautiful child known to family advocates as "the little girl in the blue dress" has been through more abuse than most of us can imagine. Devani was taken at the age of 2 from her parents by Arizona's Child "Protective" Services - the Department of Child Services (DCS), but she was never abused in her parents' home. Her horrors began after she was in the custody of the State of Arizona. Before she was adopted by Samantha and Justin Osteraas, she was placed by DCS into a foster home with a man who is now serving prison time for running a pornographic and pedophile ring out of his home.
Arizona Girl Raped and Burned in Foster Care Still Represented by Same Attorney – Kept Away from Family
An Arizona court decided this week that a woman accused of scalding a little girl alive and burning over 80% of her body will go to trial in October 2018. Meanwhile, Samantha Osteraas is out on bail, and the little girl's biological mother is still trying to get justice for her daughter, whose life was destroyed by Child Protective Services and the adults the agency placed her with. While Samantha Osteraas is free to walk the streets as she awaits trial, little Devani's real family has no idea where she is or who the agency has placed her with this time. The court-appointed attorney chosen to represent little Devani and allowed her to remain in foster homes where she was allegedly raped, sexually trafficked, and burned, is the same attorney still representing her today. The foster parents who committed such atrocities are now answering for their criminal acts in the legal system, but the government agencies that placed her there and kept her there until today, are apparently not being held responsible for their parts in these heinous crimes. Where is the justice?
Arizona Child Removed from Loving Family and Placed into Foster Care Where She was Repeatedly Raped – then 80% of Body Burned
Earlier this year (June 2017) we reported on one of the most horrific examples of child abuse of a child who was taken into state custody by a “Child Protection” social service agency, and put into the foster care system, that we have ever reported. We reported how one Arizona child was repeatedly raped as part of a pornographic pedophile ring in foster care, and then placed into a different foster home where 80% of her body was burned with scalding water. We were only able to report on this because a court-appointed guardian of the child sued the Arizona Department of Child Safety, making the alleged crimes public knowledge. However, what was not published by the general media who reported on this story was the birth mother's perspective, and why the child was taken away from her family in the first place. Health Impact News has interviewed the mother and investigated her story, and we now bring it to the public. The question arises: What horrors did the real parents do that could justify CPS putting a child into such heinous situations? Our investigation reveals the shocking truth: nothing. This story is yet another example of just how corrupt child "protective" services have become, especially in Arizona.
