Insurance Fraud NH Resident Sentenced to Prison

The New Hampshire Insurance Department announced that a Nashua, N.H., resident pleaded guilty in Hillsborough County Superior Court on Oct. 9 to two charges of felony insurance fraud and one felony charge of bail jumping, stemming from a fraudulent insurance claim he had filed with Travelers Insurance Co.

The department announced that in September 2012, after the roof of his home was damaged by high winds, Mark Kelley sought reimbursement from Travelers Insurance Co. by submitting two receipts that he claimed showed he had paid a local contractor for repairs.

Subsequent investigation by Travelers, and later by a senior investigator at the New Hampshire Insurance Department, revealed that Kelley had not made any such payments to the contractor and that many of the alleged repairs had not been completed.

After being indicted in October 2013 for insurance fraud, Kelley failed to appear at a scheduled hearing in February 2014, and he was arrested in May 2014. He was sentenced to two concurrent 12-month prison sentences on the insurance fraud charges, with six months of each sentence suspended on good behavior for two years. Kelley also was sentenced to one and a half to three years for failing to appear in court, with the entire sentence
suspended on good behavior for two years.

“Insurance fraud is a crime that affects not just the insurance companies but New Hampshire residents, who end up paying higher premiums,” said NH Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny. “I am very proud of our Fraud Investigation Unit, which works tirelessly to protect consumers by prosecuting those who break the law.”

Missing Person Norma Jo Brown of Bath County

State police say a missing Bath County woman may be tied to a murder case and could be in danger.

Police say the last person 33-year-old Norma Jo Brown was seen with was 37-year-old Kevin Howard, who was recently charged in the murder of University of Cincinnati assistant professor.

It’s been more than two weeks without a word from Brown.

“She texts every day, and she hasn’t texted or called. Regardless, she would,” said Genie Hardin, Brown’s sister.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

And the new developments have brought little comfort to the family. But Brown’s sister says Howard isn’t a stranger to them.

“He was a neighbor and also Norma had, I think, at one time, they dated years ago. So we knew him from back then when she knew him,” Hardin said.

Howard and a second man, Charles Black, are accused of killing Grant County man Randy Russ, who went missing in mid-August. Investigators found human remains believed to be those of 54-year-old Russ in a grassy area off a road in Fleming County. Officials have not positively identified the body, however, and the Fleming County coroner says it could be another month before the body is identified.

Both Howard and Black are charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and theft of a vehicle.

State police say Norma Jo knew all three men. Now the family is worried the mother of two could be in danger.

“To me, I just think that he’s probably killed her. You don’t ever want to think the worst, but you do when weeks go by and she still hasn’t turned up,” she said.

And in the small Salt lick Community where she was last seen, the family is hoping someone knows what happened.

“If there’s any information they know that is important, no matter how big or small, that information needs to be told to the police,” Hardin said.

If you know anything about where Norma Jo Brown may be, call state police.

Pedophile Tracking Suspected Predator Arrested in Lexington

Lexington police say they arrested a suspected child predator who is now facing sex crime charges connected to a Florida case.

Chris Cathers tells WKYT in the eight years he’s lived on Scottish Trace in the Gleneagles subdivision he’s never had any reason to worry about his 10-year-old daughter’s safety until this week.

“Every day when you’re out watching your kids, you feel like you can’t do enough,” said Cathers.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

Lexington police say they arrested Grant Bertram two doors down from Cathers’ home Friday afternoon.

According to an arrest warrant, at some point in the past 16 months, Bertram traveled from Kentucky to Saint John’s County in Florida where he had sex with a girl between 12 and 16 years old.

The Florida detective on the case says 39-year-old Bertram met the teen in an online game called World of Warcraft.

He’s now charged lewd or lascivious battery and traveling to meet a minor.

“We live 15 feet away from this gentleman. You never want to live next to a criminal no matter what the crime is but that is just sickening,” said neighbor Sandra Stokely.

In a message, the Saint John’s Sheriff’s Office said Bertram may have watched child pornography on his computer and he prefers children between the ages of 5 and 8.

Cathers said, “It really pulls the carpet out from under you. It makes us rethink our strategies for protecting our children and what we need to do for our neighborhood.”

Bertram is scheduled to appear in court Monday for an arraignment. He’s being held on a $200,000 bond. We expect to learn if he will be extradited to Florida Monday.

Pedophile Tracking Auburn, GA Man Sentenced to 20 Years For Child Porn

An Auburn man will serve a lengthy sentence in federal prison for distributing child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced last week that Jonathan Lee Whitmire was sentenced to 20 years in prison as part of an investigation into child pornography that began in Wyoming. The 36-year-old was sentenced in a Gainesville court by U.S. District Judge William C. O’Kelley to the maximum sentence followed by 20 years of supervised release, according to the news release.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

Whitmire was arrested by the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office after an investigation by the Homeland Security Investigations traced emails containing child pornography from a Cheyenne, Wyo. residence to Whitmire’s home.

Whitmore was also charged with molestation of at least two young girls. Searches of Whitmire’s email accounts showed he traded sexually explicit images of young children with a substantial number of other individuals using various email accounts, the release said.

“This defendant amassed a large collection of photos and videos depicting the sexual assault of very young children,” United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in the release. “We will continue to pursue significant sentences for those who trade in the victimization of the most innocent and vulnerable among us.”

Whitmire will have to register as a sex offender after he is released from prison.

The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations, the BCSO and the Barrow County District Attorney’s Office as a part of Project Safe Childhood. The nationwide initiative was launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

“As long as there are predators in our society who traffic in the rape of children for their perverse desires, there will be HSI special agents a few steps behind them working tirelessly to seek justice for the victims of this pernicious crime,” said Brock D. Nicholson, Special Agent in Charge of ICE Homeland Security Investigations in Atlanta.

For further information please contact the U.S. Attorney’s Public Affairs Office at USAGAN.PressEmails@usdoj.gov or (404) 581-6016. The Internet address for the home page for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia is www.justice.gov/usao/gan.
