Turtleboy Investigates

Vigilante “Halos”: A Group Of Illiterate, Unlicensed, Queefbags Inserting Themselves Into Jo Ringer Murder And Threatening Turtleboy To Give Up Emails By Lying And Manipulation 

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.

 


Making graphics is a hobby she is passionate about. Not sure how she has all the time with the state of Louisiana making you take all those courses to keep your license for being a PI.

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.

 


Let’s take a look at this fuckery shall we?

 

Great sentence. Nothing wrong here. I’m convinced. Here ya go!

Not.

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.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.

    Actually Sandye Roberts is in Mississippi, and is the only reason she can legally claim to be a Private Investigator. Mississippi is one of 4 states that require no licensing. Anyone with a heartbeat can claim to be a “PI” in Mississippi. Guess what? Law Enforcement doesn’t care because shady organizations like Halos do the dirty work for them then hand info over to them. The problem here is that Sandye is NOT licensed anywhere, and CFSI is not a reputable organization either. The founder of that organization Chuck Forman is a whore who sleeps around with all the women in his organization. Basically CFSI is one big orgy. He doesn’t even run background checks on his volunteers, so some of them have criminal backgrounds. There are so many organizations similar to Halos in the missing person community. Most of these organizations are not legit, very few are actually helpful. It’s pretty disgusting and pathetic.

    Bottom line is people like Sandye Roberts use families and victims to get their name out in public to better themselves and their own agenda. It’s all about money.

    Finally someone called them out thank you!! I became aware of Halos a little over a year ago when my niece went missing. At first I thought they were helping after a few months I realize they were in it for the fame that was it. I would organize search parties and Krystal would contact me afterwards and I would give her info we found out and she would call my nieces mother and tell her the info like she did something besides sit in her room. After that I kept all info between family and police she suddenly had nothing to offer but the Halos name! Then when Jo went missing I tried to reach out to the family through Halos to offer my assistance and they blocked me and deleted my comments doesn’t seem like they want to help the missing does it. But there quick to give a statement or jump on the news like they are doing something productive. Wanna help get your asses up and hit the streets!

    Eddie Frankum of Halo Protection Services, a private investigator, leads unwitting people to believe he is a lawyer when he is not. He claims to be a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association but he is not a lawyer and cannot be a member. Only lawyers can be members. He claims to have “personally filed successful lawsuits…” which is impossible if he is not a lawyer. He preys on family members of incarcerated individuals who are desperate to help their incarcerated loved ones, he promises to find post conviction evidence by conducting an “investigation” for which he charges over $15,000 (fifteen thousand dollars) or more to do…all the while promising things he cannot legally do or deliver and after he takes people money he gives them nothing in return, he refuses to provide itemized statements and refuses to provide work product that his customers have paid for. He takes thier money and gives them nothing in return except collection efforts. He contracts to provide services which he cannot legally provide and commits fraud and breach of contract. Eddie Frankum flat out lied when he said he investigated my brother’s charge and he can help, then sent me a contract for $18,000 plus expenses. He never investigated anything, it was impossible and it was a lie just to try to get money. This man used to be a police chief but was fired for theft but uses that to try to gain peoples trust by saying he was wrongly accused also when in fact he is a liar and a thief and a fraud. His entire post conviction investigation service is a scam to take advantage of desperate unknowing people. I would not wish many people in prison but that is exactly where this man belongs.

    April 22, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Hello my name is Sandye and I am the Founder and CEO of Halos Investigations Inc. This has really gotten out of hand. Please let me tell you what is not true on here. First, Halos Investigations Inc. is not in Louisiana, its in Mississippi. We are registered with the state. I have been a child advocate for 30 years and have worked with families through the court system, LE and child protective services for many years. Yesterday someone from your group contacted me about Victoria Rooneys disregarding protocol..I personally let your team know that they had been removed from the organization and apologized for her unacceptable behavior. We try our best to control these situations and protocol agreements are enforced, and that is why she was dismissed. Our company is built on integrity. And in no way would I allow the bashing of anyone helping the public. I thought this had been resolved yesterday, actually. Krystle is a case manager, who just finished her PI school out of New York and will receive her license in 2018 of March and works with LE to turn over tips that may come in. She definitely should have handled this differently, and I am addressing that. I have done nothing to deserve the words about me personally stated here as I am transparent and truly am about the missing and trafficked. I hope this clears some things up. Thank You. Everything is registered with the Secretary of State, Mississippi. Krystle was being overly cautious with given my number out to the public when anon was mentioned. However on the Bring Jo Home Page the reason we did not name your page or blog is because we don’t hold any of the turtle boys responsible for the comments that are on your blog. Nor does the Jo Ringer family or friends who happen to be followers of your page and have been very appreciative of your interest and support. I certainly would like to clear this matter up because it doesn’t help anyone here. In fact I had someone in court supporting the family yesterday and that case manager could have easily stepped in and done interviews and was asked but wanted the focus to stay on the situation at hand and that would be Jo Ringer and her missing and the findings. We want the focus to remain on Jo and her family in hopes she will be found. Part of our job is to keep the lost and missing in the press as often times they are forgotten and to keep people continue to come forward with any information. I am truly sorry this has gotten out of hand and nobody endorsed or condoned Victoria’s actions or behaviors. Also to further clear up whether anyone gets paid for their work. Our Teams members do not get paid this is all volunteered time energy and pay out of their own pockets for their expenses for travel gas etc..! People do this because they are genuinely invested and truly care about the lost missing and trafficked. Anything that is gathered is turned over to the detective at Police department. Our tip line was set up through the internet and has been a valuable asset in turning tips over to the authorities. Some of our Volunteers became volunteers because of their own have become lost or missing or trafficked. As for the picture you posted of me with the candy cane hat that was done for my grand-children to enjoy. Kids are our future. And family is what its all about. I hope this clears up some things. I do appreciate being contacted about any lack of protocol being followed.

      Private investigators are not licensed in Mississippi; it has been a matter of contention for some time, and unscrupulous investigators flock to that state as there is no oversight. Saying you are registered with the state of MS means as much as me saying I am registered with the state. That is total BS. Integrity?

        I double posted you. In my capacity, I’ve worked with a few organizations like this. Some were good, some not. Some like to get in and grab some headlines so the donations roll in. It’s a problem in this state that needs to be addressed because some of these folks are not only counterproductive, but they’re dangerous.

      You say you’re registered with SoS of Mississippi, but the last time I checked, there was no state requirement for licensing here. So how is it you’re Licensed when there’s no requirement? Or is the registration you speak of just a formality that really isn’t a license or credentials that is regulated?

      Krystal was 1000% unprofessional. Let the Police DO their JOB! Her threatening and spewing lies like she did just made Halos look like a crazy organization. I would never call you guys to help me if my love one was missing.
      Also why have people send you tips and information… That is NOT your job. You guys are VOLUNTEERS! State Police know what they’re doing…you are interfering with police work.
      Did you not watch the live update where they never once say to give information to Halos, they asked people to contact THEM, people who are in charge of it all.
      If your focus is on Jo Ringer and her family then DO the right thing for them… Turn ALL information over to them, direct everyone to THEM not to you.
      Other crazy lady, thank god you let her go….Krystal should also be off this case, too. She fucked up.

      What law enforcement agency does Krystel work for?In NY you have to have been a detective to be licensed as a PI. Websleuths.com and a Pennfoster cert do not cut it.

    Hey Turtleboy,

    I just wanted to share with you. A Private Investigator in MA and many other jurisdictions MUST (no 2 ways about it) have been a former police officer.

    So… just to add more fuel to your fire.

      Verbatim from the Mass State Police licensing department:

      The applicant shall have been regularly employed for not less than three years as a detective doing investigating work, a former member of an investigative service of the United States, a former police officer, of a rank or grade higher than that of patrolman, of the commonwealth, any political subdivision thereof or an official police department of another state, or a police officer in good standing formerly employed for not less than ten years with the commonwealth, or any political subdivision thereof or with an official police department of another state.

      I am pretty sure it is like that everywhere. If not it should be,I know that is the case in NY.
      It seems that these butt nuts are from the south,the people down here really are “special”.I am convinced you called it nosy housewives with too much time on their hands.
      Hey Krystle! this aint webslueths!Turtleboy and the turtle riders deal with facts,If you gave a real shit you would let the cops in Mass deal with it.

    Halos may have noble intentions, but the fact that they cannot provide credentials or even one shred of credibility outside media reports and photoshopped awards is very telling.

    I’m sure that the state police are happy to get any leads they can, but these people masquerading as investigators may do more harm than good.

    This 501c3 is just a way for them to garner donations and attention.

    Scary and way too much time on their hands. Guaranteed government assistance is in the air too among other self-serving agendas.

    I feel so badly for Ms. Ringer and her family. This ‘Halo’ group is disgusting and should be exposed and disbanded for the fraud that they are.

    Great job by TB, exposing the degree of selfishness and unprofessionalism of ‘Halo’. The PI’s should actually start an investigation into ‘Halo’……scumbags.

    So driving Ms. Crazy is calling herself a P.I. over a mistake a reporter made? Shit someone get me a reporter to call me a billionaire!!! I could always claim to be “Trans-Financial”.

    Turtlestain questioning someone’s investigative techniques, because they use the results to gain attention.

    Now if that’s not the pot calling the kettle black.

      The real question here is:

      What results have Halos ever produced?

      Looks more like a hobby / piggy bank for the owner.

      • April 23, 2017 at 7:51 am

        And turtlestain is Aiden Kearney’s piggy bank. What’s your point?

      TB doesn’t claim to be anything they’re not, however they DO investigate & they DO get results… so stop reading if you think they’re trying to get attention and bullshitting their way through it. Or actually keep reading, just another click at this point. Troll

      I think the real distinction here is that, when Turtleboy contacts someone about a story, they don’t start lying about BS credentials and make themselves appear to be something that they aren’t.
