The title of a recently released CBS News article is “Mom Brenda Heist resurfaces 11 years after ABANDONING KIDS” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57582539/mom-brenda-heist-resurfaces-11-years-after-abandoning-kids/).
“ELEVEN years after she vanished without a trace, Brenda Heist approached police in Florida last week to explain that she had abandoned her two children on the spur of the moment, leaving behind her old life in central Pennsylvania to become a vagrant (tramp)”. Translation: Brenda Heist left her life to become a TRAMP.
Heist, a car dealership bookkeeper, was going through an AMICABLE (?) divorce and had just been turned down for housing assistance. She left the half-done laundry, the defrosting dinner and her daughter and son, then (only) 8 and 12 years old”. So we’re talking about CHILDREN here. Also, NO “divorce” is COMPLETELY “amicable”. Just look at AMANDA KNOX. Her parents divorced years ago when she was a child and now even getting them to EAT SALADS AT THE SAME TABLE is AWKWARD (Web-site/URL: http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/03/opinion/amanda-knox-book-excerpt/).
“Today, her daughter, Morgan, is a 19-year-old freshman at Montgomery County Community College and her son, Lee, recently graduated and is pursuing a career in law enforcement”.
More specifically, Morgan said: “She WAS my best friend, she and I WERE so close, I NEVER THOUGHT (that) SHE WOULD DO THIS TO ME AND MY BROTHER” obviously. Also notice “She WAS my best friend, she and I WERE so close”. When we’re talking about FAMILY MEMBERS in the PAST tense, THAT IS A VERY BAD PLACE TO BE/VERY UNSETTLING. “I DON’T KNOW WHAT WAS SO HARD IN HER (Brenda Heist’s) LIFE, it was a MUTUAL decision to divorce“. Well “divorces” ARE INDEED “hard” and AWKWARD and again we can mention AMANDA KNOX‘s parents (Web-site/URL: http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/03/opinion/amanda-knox-book-excerpt/).
According to Lititz Borough Police Detective John Schofield, “who suspected for years she may have been killed (and)…met with her Monday (May 6, 2013) in Florida”, “Everybody that knew Brenda told us (that) THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY Brenda would leave her children”, but THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. “She explained to me that she JUST SNAPPED” and THAT’S ACCEPTABLE? “She TURNED HER BACK ON her family, she TURNED HER BACK ON her friends, (and) her co-workers“, which is most likely why Brenda Heist DOESN’T HAVE ANY “friends”.
“He (Schofield) said she expressed SHAME and APOLOGIZED for what she did to her family“. REALLY? IS THIS GENUINE?
“She has a BIRTH certificate and a DEATH certificate, so she’s got a LONG ways to MAKE THIS RIGHT again (?) IF IT’S POSSIBLE “to make this right again”, that is. “She’s got to TAKE IT SLOW with HER FAMILY (?), I’m sure and IT’S GOING TO BE A LONG PROCESS” again obviously. Also does Brenda Heist have a “family” anymore given that she said she has NO children?
“She said she was AT THE END OF HER ROPE, she was TIRED OF RUNNING“. Heist should have realized this after ONE WEEK or A FEW DAYS. After 11 YEARS, NO ONE BELIEVES HER.
“Her husband, Lee Heist, who was investigated and then cleared as a suspect, struggled to raise their children. By 2010, he was able to get the courts to declare her legally dead and collected on a life insurance policy. He has remarried”.
“They (Lee Heist’s children) KNEW THAT I WAS THERE (for them) and I LOVED THEM and WOULD TAKE CARE OF THEM“, which, again, unfortunately, is what Brenda Heist DIDN’T/FAILED TO do.
“He’s ANGRY because of the effect their mother’s disappearance had on the children, but he also said he has forgiven her”. Lee Heist HAS EVERY RIGHT to be “angry” here/in this case.
“There were people in the neighborhood who would not allow their children to play with my children” because he had been a suspect”,. This sounds eerily similar to the evil intent of JOSH POWELL (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxLOhbEId2c). The only difference is that Josh Powell was EVIL, while Lee Heist IS NOT.
“Both his ex-wife and their children have expressed a desire to speak with one another, but for now they are TAKING THINGS SLOWLY“, especially MORGAN Heist. In fact. we have to wonder IF Morgan wants to see her mother AT ALL.
Finally, “People do sometimes “WALK OFF“, only to be found YEARS later, said J. Todd Matthews, a spokesman for the National Missing & Unidentified Persons System, a Fort Worth, Texas-based organization with a database of about 85,000 missing people”.
More specifically, Matthews said: “It’s NOT an everyday thing. But IT’S NOT UNHEARD OF (either)”, “adding that Heist did not strike him as a good candidate for that. She told Schofield she never had access to a computer to check if she was being sought, but she assumed people were looking for her”. “I WOULD NOT have EXPECTED to see her turn up alive“. This is the latest/another EXPECTATION (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
To conclude, what’s interesting about Lee Heist is the fact that she betrayed her husband and HER CHILDREN. Usually, dueling spouses HAVE SUPPORT FROM children. NOT IN THIS CASE. Just look at what MORGAN Heist has to say about her mother.
