Last week a woman named Melissa Horstman messaged us to get the word out that her home had been robbed, and her dog’s surgery fund was taken by the thieves:
Here’s the video:
As you can see she has taken the video down. It happened while we were speaking with her and she got pretty defensive. No worries, we always save a copy because this usually ends up happening:
We wanted to actually investigate this before sharing anything. Ya know, because we like facts and stuff. But Fox 25 News is more interested in cheap page views, so this time instead of stealing a story from us they rushed to break this one first.
In the video, a white SUV can be seen just before and again shortly after the items were taken, and Horstman is hopeful that helps catch the people responsible. Two neighbors say a similar burglary happened next door this time last year.
So they’re saying that this white SUV was seen before and after the robbery. As you can see in the video above, this is the white SUV that drove by before:
That’s clearly a newer model Honda CRV, while the second car that drives by is obviously a different car, which is easily noticeable when you look at the back windows:
I’m sure the turtle motor heads will know the make and model in a heartbeat, but I’m thinking that’s a Toyota. Either way, a Honda CRV it is not. So Fox 25 News threw fake news in your face because they thought you were dumb enough to believe it.
That’s strike one.
Strike two is the time:
So the thieves broke in the back door at 9:20, and left the house at 10:00. And in 40 minutes of ransacking a house where they allegedly did not know the owner, and thus had no idea if she was gonna come home any time soon, all they managed to take was a speaker and an animal cracker container filled with quarters? Sure thing.
Strike three was the amount of quarters that were stolen, which naturally were specifically earmarked for her dog’s surgery:
Yup, $3,000. That comes out to 12,000 quarters. Here’s what 1/3 of that ($1,000 worth of quarters) looks like in a sack:
Ad here it is compared to two smaller sacks:
Here’s how much a sack of 4000 quarters weighs:
Fifty pounds. But of course they stole $3,000 worth of quarters, not $1,000, which would make it a 150 pound bag of quarters. Which is insanely heavy. Never mind the fact that it’s insanely odd to have money for such an important surgery left in animal cracker container in your house. Oh yea, this story’s doing well so far.
Strike four, suspect #2 was the one allegedly carrying the quarters. Does this look like someone carrying 150 pounds of quarters stored in an animal crackers container?
Notice the shoes that person is wearing:
Yea, those are women’s boots. That’s a chick. Pants are a dead giveaway too. The person who pulled off these feats of strength is a woman. And from the looks of it she’s holding nothing. Even if they did have something in their hands buried in the sweatshirt, it sure as shit isn’t an animal cracker container filled with 12,000 quarters.
Strike 5 – check out the backdoor that the thieves conveniently broke into, because they knew the front door had a camera:
Notice all the glass broken on the outside. Which is weird if someone smashed the glass from the outside. I’m not exactly Bill Nye but I’m pretty sure the laws of physics tell us that glass would be more on the inside of the house. Unless it’s just a sloppy coverup job and someone broke the glass from the inside.
Strike 6 – the second you saw a dog like that you’d move on to the next house. Unless of course you knew that the dog was sick, which would mean the people who robbed the joint knew Melissa. But Melissa claims she doesn’t know who they are, and that they’ve been watching her carry the dog into her house:
Wigwam Hill Rd is a dead end with no access to anything except Plantation Street. If there was someone staking out your house for that long (like you have the Mona Lisa inside) you’d notice them.
Strike 7 – they’ve made almost $20,000 on the GoFundMe:
As you can see, the GFM was not started by Melissa, but by a friend named Patricia Pianedosi. And if you questioned the many holes in this story she basically redefined what it means to be shady:
First of all Patricia, there’s nothing normal about having that much money in quarters in your house. This isn’t the Great Depression. We can trust banks now to insure our deposits. It’s called the FDIC. Fancy new invention brought to us by big government liberals that everyone seems to hate so much.
Secondly, the mere fact that she calls people “sick” when they show hesitance to contribute to this shady cause, further makes me believe that this is indeed a scam.
Strike 8 – she claims they didn’t want the speaker and ditched in a neighbor’s yard.
Strike 9 – she associates with “fuck the po-lease” people:
Yup, that makes sense. Go through all that trouble to steal a speaker and then ditch it. Definitely.
Strike 10 – where are the fingerprints?
Weird. Because I’ve had my house in Worcester broken into before. The cops had someone over within hours to print.
Strike 11 – why didn’t the dog bark? She claims he’s not friendly with anyone:
I understand the dog has issues with it’s leg. I had no idea this also affected the poor thing’s ability to bark loudly.
Strike 12 – we spoke with her tonight, and she claims the cops have it narrowed down to a couple gang bangers, but she can’t release their names:
For the record I don’t doubt for a moment the dog is getting surgery and she loves her dog. But the fact of the matter is that she’s clearly lying about 12,000 quarters being stolen from her house. It’s undeniable. And if she’s willing to lie about that, then what else is she lying about? My guess is she didn’t have the money, desperately wants to save her dog, and came up with this scheme to save her dog’s life. She actually seems like a nice woman when I spoke with her. I just think she’s desperate and willing to do anything to save her dog. It’s a shame it took a lie in order to achieve that.
Either way she obviously cannot be trusted and you’d have to be an idiot to consider donating to this. Then again, it’s really Fox 25 News and the MSM that’s lying to these idiots in the first place, instead of doing their homework like we do.
