Lock Melissa Lamour up.
My name is Travis Wells and I am a retired Army combat veteran with 20 years honorable service. I am in dire need of some assistance.
I have an uncle that passed on 6 January of this year. I have been appointed the Administrator to his Estate. Six months prior to his passing my uncle had a live in health care provider due to the fact that he had COPD and I was unable to be in NY to care for him. He has no wife or children.
After my uncles death I discovered that the health care provider was stealing from him while he was in her care and continued to do so after his passing. I have pressed charges with the NY State Police Department. The crimes include grand larceny auto, grand larceny (using his debit card after he passed), being in possession of stolen property and submitting false documents (All felonies). Unbeknown to me the health care provider is already a convicted felon on gun charges. After filing the charges the health care provider was arrested and admitted to forgery and possession of the stolen property, however the Essex County DA office either dropped or reduced all charges to a misdemeanor. When I questioned the reason why she was not charged with the felonies, I was told by the Essex County Assistant District Attorney Michele Bowen, “there will be no jail time and you are wasting your time”.
Being the Administer to my uncles estate I was obligated to inventory his belongings. While I was doing an inventory of my uncles estate I was attacked and punched in the face by the health care provider and her boyfriend. I called 911 and filed charges against them. When I went to court for the assault I was told to behave civil and was given ACOD for six months, by the Town Justice, Daniel Deyoe.
The Jay town clerk Carol Greenley Hackel sent a certified copy of my uncle’s death certificate to someone that requested it over the phone. She did not verify legal right to have the death certificate therefor violating NY state law. When I asked her why she sent it to someone without verifying who they were or their entitlement to the certified death certificate, she told me that the Essex County Attorney, Dan Manning told her it was ok. When I talked with Dan Manning he said to me “That’s how we do it up here”.
The reason I am writing this is because now the health care provider has submitted a “Will” claiming my uncle left his estate to her. The signature does not match my uncle’s known signature or any of the signatures I have provided to the court for examples, IE Drivers License, Checks and Legal paperwork. I filed charges for the “Will” and was told by NY BCI investigator Brian Constantineau “There was no evidence of wrong doing” even after the fact that one of the witnesses stated she did not actually witness my uncle sign the "Will". She also stated that she was not even in the house and that the “Will” was brought to her in a car that she was in to sign. The “Will” is not notarized and looks to be filled out and dated by one and the same person.
The Essex County Court system is allowing her to go forward with this “Will”. I have hired an attorney however, it seems his hands are tied and we are facing closed doors every direction we take. The health care provider has been quoted as saying that she has had sexual relations with a local town judge and she will never go to jail. She also stated that she can do what ever she wants in Essex County. It is my belief she is being protected by this judge and his colleagues at all cost.
I believe that my civil rights have been violated by Essex County. I am trying to seek justice for my uncle and for myself. The continuation of this battle has been very stressful physically, mentally and financially to myself and my family. I am reaching out to you for any and all assistance you may be able to provide.
