I’m going long Turtles. Buckle up because I’m pissed off. There is nothing I hate more than people who manipulate others just to claim they serve a purpose.

Some big developments yesterday in the Jo Ringer case. Uncle Turtleboy will be covering that for us a little later.
I, however, have a huge bone to pick with an organization that was apparently contacted by Jo’s family. Halo Investigations is some bullshit 501c3 out of Louisiana that “helps” find people who go missing. Mostly children who have been trafficked for sex.
In short, they make families trust them enough so they can get all the dirt on what’s going so they can get quoted in the newspaper, make themselves feel important, flame the fire of drama, and post on Facebook all day.
What I discovered is that they are a group of hacks with zero credentials, who resemble your crazy, uneducated, neighbor. The one we all know, who spends her days watching Nancy Grace and shouting at the TV because “she know who dun it.” This group does more harm than good.
I got this message from Krystle Lespier, who stated she was a lead investigator of the Jo Ringer case, a couple days ago. Her Facebook page says she is “Vice President” of this organization and is filled with ghetto made up awards.
No joke. Everyone associated with these people has a page filled with these middle school clip art fails.
The head cheesehog for this “investigation organization” is this Sandye M. Roberts. The “m” stands for “momma.” Not kidding.
Wow, a real private investigator in Louisiana runs this? Oh. Wait. She’s not licensed and neither is her agency in that state. I searched through every name on the board, just in case spelling was a problem, and nothing. No Sandye. No Halo. No nothing. I even traced the number for their “anonymous tip line” back to South Carolina. Not registered there either.
Yeah, even looked under the agency and journeymen as well. Nothing. She’s not registered in her own state, or the state for the tip line, but spends all day making pretty things that says she is licensed.
Now, anyone who has ever had to message us for something knows how chill I am. If you are having a hard time explaining what you need – I will sit there and help you. I’m patient AF. So, when I tell you that I was furiously screaming at my phone because Krystle’s stupidity pissed me off so bad – that’s saying something.
Seems Krystle saw some disturbing comments left in the comments section of our website. If anyone has been on there knows that it’s anonymous and reads like a 4 Chan thread. It’s pandemonium. You can’t pay it any mind and we don’t have time to sit around all day and monitor it.
By “Krystle” seeing them, I mean that Jo’s friends, the same ones who have been all over the news giving interviews, saw them and they didn’t like what they said. Understandable, seeing that the troll blamed the friends for not helping Jo when she was being domestically abused.
This is the Internet. Trolls will be trolls. I know it sucks but the Internet is a dark and scary place. The only job of an internet troll is to get you riled up. This is especially easy to do when you’re at the forefront of a national news story and you have been speaking passionately about something, or someone, you love.
Just to give you an idea of what had upset them:
But Brittany didn’t understand that she was being trolled and went as far as saying she was going to murder the guy. Probably not the best choice of words seeing that we’re reading this because your friend was literally murdered. You can read all the comments here – but that will give you the gist.
The Halo team even dragged the drama onto the page they run for Jo:
The friends went complaining to this fake investigation team “leader” and Krystal decided to try to con me out of giving up the troll’s email.
Great sentence. Nothing wrong here. I’m convinced. Here ya go!
How hard is spelling and punctuation? Honestly!?
Wait, shouldn’t investigators remain unbiased? What good is she, with her anonymous tip line, if she’s making friends and getting personally involved? Real professional. How many investigators do you know that will make it their mission to fix hurt feelings on the Internet?
I’d like to note that had this been a detective with the police asking for the information – I wouldn’t even bat an eyelash before handing them over everything I had. Absolutely. Anything to help REAL law enforcement.
But this was a woman, with ZERO credentials, trying to con me in to finding out who was being mean on the Internet.
First off, if you want us to dig up information you found in the comment section of our website, because you’re somehow important to a missing person’s case, you should probably be able to construct a fucking sentence.
Oh? You’re the unelected vice president of some vigilante investigation team, which digs its unwanted claws into an active police investigation, by searching through internet trolls who are mean to people? Tell me more about the difference you’re making in the world.
The only thing this person is Vice President of is the trailer park association of which she probably resides. There are many more to come – but here is Fuck you, Krystle #1.
Seriously, the Panty Sniffer was a thing.
She saying she has to turn this conversation over to state officials was her trying to scare me in to telling her. Hey, Mass State Police, you reading this? You’ve got some chick pretending to have a PI license trying to use you as a weapon! (Fuck you, Krystle #3)
“There info.” Fauxronica Mars is not only wasting my time, lying to me, trying to manipulate me through fear, but also insulting my intelligence by simply existing.
You should also be able to clearly communicate what the hell it is you’re looking for. The only reason I held on so long was because of how unbelievably stupid you were. (Fuck you, Krystle #4) Don’t waste my god damn time because you’re trying to pacify a group of hurting people who, by their own admission, are frustrated by not being able to talk to the press. Guys, the police are trained to DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CASE. You think the cops forgot about Jo? Her face is everywhere right now. They don’t know who is involved and they aren’t supposed to tell people everything. That’s why the police handle these things and idiots like Krystle here should just leave it alone.
Next up, your “off the record” and typing privacy clauses on Facebook messenger mean precisely dick to me. It shows me how little training you’ve had in anything. I’d be surprised if you passed third grade. You know who gets my secrecy? The Turtleriders that send us actual tips and don’t annoy me for hours by lying about credentials.
The minute you typed the line about you not giving me permission to print this – should have told you I was going to print it. (Fuck you, Krystle #5)
And here is where you can hear Krystle’s dumb bitch dreams coming to an earth-shattering halt. She was interviewed on Dateline and they referred to her as a PI. No correction on her part. She loves false titles and the MSM didn’t do any homework.
Here is my favorite part. Because I had clicked on her profile, saw her made up title, I had “confirmed” who she was. LMAO.
She’s watched a YouTube video and the first season of Sherlock. Now she thinks I “can’t” help her. It’s easier to say than “I’m a liar.” Challenge is a huge part of the manipulation process. Not bad for a woman who “went threw” PI school.
The anonymous tip line is probably her own personal cell phone.
Now I’m just being an asshole. I wanted her to say she worked at Taco Bell. I don’t think it would be too far a stretch.
The flyer which she, or her boss, made.
She has credentials? Like a post-it note with some clip art?
(I want you to take note about what she says about the Case Managers here. It’s important a couple of graphs down)
This is the CEO. The one who I couldn’t find a license for:
Yeah. Totally legit.
Now, around this time, a woman from the same organization went completely insane on our Facebook. We have no idea where she came from, what set her off, or how this even started. She was a Case Manager for Halos.
Because, as much as we tell the hard truth, and it sucks to hear, we wanted Jo home safe too. We aren’t heartless. The circus that has surrounded her disappearance could have completely been avoided if people like Athenais LaMontespan (real name Victoria Rooney) and Krystle were vetted, educated, trained, and licensed.
I woke up to this on Thursday morning:
I’m sure I don’t have to say this but we have never, not once, ever messaged Jo’s daughter. Ever. I, personally, include her in prayers each day. I’m going to show show you the source, which our team of Turtles found on the woman accusing us, and you’ll understand how this was all made up by a sick woman. A sick woman who worked for Halo.
Remember how Kystle said that these “case managers” have to go through training and a background check? The turtles went digging and found a woman who was openly mentally unstable. Her Facebook page is public and she is seemingly schizophrenic. Some background check, huh? One that would have been easy if a real PI was on the job.
… Dude. What? All of these crazy ramblings are wide open on her page. How did the red flag not pop up?
…. yeah. Halo Investigations is clearly at the top of their game. Train your case managers eh?
Now, Trigglyschitzopuff I guess got “fired” for this, but she is a good example of who are helping these terrified families. Halo brought her drama on to the Bring Jo Ringer Home page (which they run.) I’m sure Jo’s family and friends appreciated that. Some even called them out. They didn’t even have this crazy chick’s real name!
Krystle kept trying as of yesterday morning but all my energy is spent on her. It’s time to close the doors on fake organizations.
As for the friends and family of Jo. I’m disgusted that they took advantage of your pain and vulnerability. I’m sorry that I had to call these people out for pulling the wool over your eyes and lying to you during this awful time.
Finding missing people, or children targeted by sex trafficking, is a very important and noble task. However, this group, that you trusted with the intimate details of the case, are nothing more than snake oil salesmen who exploit families in pain. They do so to make themselves feel important and to play with clip art. A bunch of bored housewives, with seemingly minimal education, and no moral compass. Horn tooters.
Please, if you have the misfortune of having your loved one go missing, research who you wants to help you and CHECK CREDENTIALS.
