Disgraced California Attorney Strangles Woman Throws her Overboard Cruise Ship

Lonni Kocontes Kills Ex-Wife for Money

Cristal M Clark 

Ahhh love when it’s good it’s a love story, when it’s soured and you add in the possibility of monetary gain, it becomes a story for the Oxygen Channel.

62-year old Lonni Kocontes was convicted this week of murdering his ex-wife, 52-year-old ex-wife Micki Kanesaki by way of strangling her and then discarding her body by tossing her overboard whilst on a cruise ship during a Mediterranean cruise. 

Here’s how prosecutors painted the picture: Lonni Kocontes and his wife flew to Spain and boarded the cruise ship on May 21, 2006. Four days later, the couple took a day trip to the town of Messina, Italy, and then returned to the ship. Micki Kanesaki was last seen alive on the ship around 11 p.m.

Prosecutors alleged that Lonni Kocontes strangled his wife later that night and then threw her body overboard. He later reported her missing and returned to California on May 27. Oddly that was the same day his wife’s body was found floating off the coast of Paola, Italy.

Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer: “The defendant thought he committed the perfect crime by throwing the victim overboard from the balcony of a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean.”

Todd did not stop there: “But he made a mistake. Despite all of his painstaking planning to pick the perfect ship, the perfect room and the perfect time to commit a murder, the fact that he strangled her before throwing her overboard gave us the very evidence to convict him of murder. She couldn’t breathe in water because she was dead long before her body ever hit the ocean and when authorities found her, her cause of death was determined to be asphyxiation, not drowning. He chose the ship, he chose the balcony room and now the judge will decide his fate.”

This is where things get a little long and drug out, this happened in 2006, but Loren was not arrested until February 2013 down in Safe Harbor, Florida. 

No one apparently suspected Lonni of murder until 2008 when he attempted to transfer $1 million between various bank accounts he shared with his former wife. Soon, the FBI started investigating the money transfer and the United States Attorney’s Office eventually took possession of the accounts where everyone discovered the motive, he stood to inherit the $1 million had her death been an actual accident and had he gone about obtaining it the right way. So basically one could say Lonni made a rookie move and got caught red handed with his hand in the cookie jar. 

Lonni now faces life without the possibility of parole and is scheduled to be sentenced on September 18.

FBI Describes Speed of Criminal Activity Breathtaking Amid Covid-19


Coronavirus Offers Up a Plethora of New Criminal Activity

Cristal M Clark 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation seal is seen at FBI headquarters before a news conference by the FBI Director the inspector general's report in Washington

Although the headline is catchy I am not sure I would utilize the term breathtaking as opposed to downright frightening to describe the waves of new and improved criminal activity. The FBI yesterday warned that the public health and economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic are providing criminals with illicit opportunities at “breathtaking” speed. “Swindles, scams, and outright thefts are a regular feature of major disasters, the novel coronavirus has provided criminal opportunities on a scale likely to dwarf anything seen before. The speed at which criminals are devising and executing their schemes is truly breathtaking.”


Some of the criminal activity in connection with the pandemic ranges from sham treatments and vaccines to bogus investment opportunities in well, rather non-existent medical companies.

Some criminals have been busted for impersonating doctors demanding payment for treatments. Scammers have used websites and mobile apps to implant malware to steal financial and personal information. People are receiving phone calls from scammers pretending a loved one is in the hospital and are demanding money so the said loved one can receive treatment for Covid-19.

Other criminals have used COVID-19 as a lure to deploy ransomware for payments which the FBI derided as “homicidal in the midst of a global pandemic.”The criminals are also aiming at swindling funds from the economic relief fund. 

Covid-19_crimeshop - Edited

The FBI is working hard to shut down any and all of this type of illegal activity but you know as well as I do that they are not going to be able to keep up with it. In addition to all of that, a lot of extremist groups are spreading fear and misinformation in an attempt to overthrow the government and to cause chaos and pandemonium. 

As if we didn’t have enough to worry about these days. Stay safe everyone.

White Supremacist Planned To Blow Up Hospital

The Federal Bureau of Investigation seal is seen at FBI headquarters before a news conference by the FBI Director the inspector general's report in Washington

Missouri Racism at it’s Upmost Worst – Coronavirus Bomber

Cristal M Clark

Last week a Missouri man who just so happens to be a white supremacist planned to blow up a hospital just to further his cause and beliefs. Not quite the way one would normally go about recruiting followers and believers but to each his own I suppose.

Timothy-Wilson-Coronavirus-bomber-crimeshop - Edited

According to the summary of the case an FBI advisory sent to law enforcement Monday said that 36-year old Timothy Wilson met with an undercover FBI employee and spoke about setting off a vehicle bomb at a hospital because of “the increased impact given the media attention on the health sector” due to the coronavirus pandemic. Timothy and the undercover agent in fact visited the hospital and discussed the attack in detail. Sounds like quite a lovely man no?

Agent’s however had already been watching over dear Timothy, who had purchased several bags of fertilizer which we all know can be used as a bomb component which he kept in a storage unit. Timothy in fact, came under investigation back in September, when the FBI arrested a Ft. Riley, Kansas, solider, Jarrett William Smith.

Agents said Jarrett told others how to make bombs and talked about wanting to carry out attacks in the U.S. They said he and Timothy talked about how to make explosive devices “to further their racially motivated violent extremist ideology.”

“Wilson had taken the necessary steps to acquire materials needed to build an explosive device, kept close track of Wilson in order to protect public safety.”

Back on March 24, Timothy met the undercover agent at the storage unit and picked up what he thought was a working bomb but it was actually constructed by the FBI, so it was non-working.

Timothy was killed in a shootout when the FBI attempted to arrest him, naturally he really did want to go out in a blaze of glory.

FBI Expanding it’s Domestic Terrorism Focus 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation seal is seen at FBI headquarters before a news conference by the FBI Director the inspector general's report in Washington

Director Christopher Wray Dishes Dirt 

Cristal M Clark

In what some are calling absolute nonsense the usually quiet, FBI Director Christopher Wray has detailed to the House judiciary committee that the bureau has recently “changed our terminology as part of a broader reorganization of the way in which we categorize our domestic terrorism efforts.”


Which many of us will applaud because of the rise of white-supremacist terrorism. One of 4 categories included as part of the changes of domestic terrorism that the FBI confronts, Per Christopher Wray happens to be “abortion violent extremism.” Which means it doesn’t matter which side of abortion you stand on. 


And that is the part that is leaving some scratching their heads, unless you are in Colorado. On November 27, 2015 Robert  Robert Lewis Dear Jr walked into a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, opened fire injuring 9 individuals and killed 3 individuals. If you support, encourage and applaud that, you are in fact the type of individual who carries an extremist view. 

Between 1993 and today, anti-abortion activists murdered 11 people and attempted to kill another 26. 

Theodore-Schulman-crimeshop - Edited

Theodore Schulman on the other hand is the self proclaimed “first pro-choice terrorist.” He had a long history of making threats to those who do not support abortion up to and including threatening to kill someone in response to defendant Scott Roeder should he be found not guilty for the murder of abortion provider George Tiller. The murder by the way took place in the foyer of a Wichita church in 2009. 

The announcement of the abortion violent extremism did draw the ire of many critics who hesitated not, to mention that abortion related violence is and has been rare, which is true. However, Christopher had an answer for that: “Well, we’ve actually had a variety of kinds of violence under that, believe it or not.” And even if they do not have high enough documented numbers of that, one would be hard pressed to disagree with the fact extremism regardless of the belief or cause one passionately believes in is in fact on the rise. 

In 2017, the FBI distributed a brief “Abortion Extremism Reference Guide” at a counter-terrorism training for local law enforcement, listing “pro-choice extremists” as a group of domestic terrorists. The document, first reported by Jezebel, claimed that these extremists “believe it is their moral duty to protect those who provide or receive abortion services.”

Now they have expanded that view to include both sides of the equation which would be the correct move. 

Christopher did admit that abortion extremism is only a small fraction of terrorism cases it deals with while “the top threat of domestic terrorism comes from racially and/or ethnically motivated violent extremists.”

It’s been reported that about half of the terrorism cases the FBI has been looking at concern anti-government extremism (we can all thank Donald for that one) and another 40% concern racist terrorism. Around 85 cases are of violence motivated by animal rights, ecological degradation, abortion and then the miscellaneous cases.

Not that many of you get to see this much but in my line of work, I have met, heard from and spoken to quite a few extremists, what I can tell you is that for the most part these individuals can be frightening, the things they believe, the idea’s they have. The FBI adding abortion extremism is a logical way of thinking, extremist views and thoughts can and eventually do translate into some type of extremist action or behavior at some point or another.

E-Skimming Getting Worse by The Day


FBI Issues Warning 

Cristal M Clark

I’m sure you all know about card skimming at the fuel station, the market and just about anywhere you swipe a card, we also need to worry about E=Skimming which is not a new thing. 


E-Skimming, is an internet based card fraud where malware is injected into the payment page of a website to steal consumers’ payment details which of course happens when the hackers have unleashed malware on the payment page of the website. They then collect  customer card data when customers pay during the checkout process. 

Of course this has been a small problem since online shopping became a thing however, it’s now getting worse as each year passes. In fact according to the FBI, millions consumers’ data has been compromised by this kind of online scheme over just the past 2 years, and that my friends is just a stab in the dark at just how many individuals have had card data stolen through an online store because the FBI is having a difficult time obtaining a more precise count. 


Unfortunately, consumers never see this or get a warning when any sites payment system has been compromised so, we can’t really tell. 

So what are we consumers to do here?

Experts suggest using a credit card for all online purchases over using a debit card because the money on a debit card comes out of your account right away and in some cases it can take a while to see the funds returned to the account. 

Consumers can also check with the bank that they use, most banks now have a feature included with most mobile banking apps that alert the user if a charge is run on his/her debit card and that alert is in real-time.

Banks are also really coming around in terms of fraudulent charges on cards, they don’t let the fund’s come right out before checking with the consumer in some cases where things seem off and they are getting faster at returning funds that were not authorized. 

Either way, the FBI does not see an end to this situation anytime soon, so when you shop online, keep an eye out for charges that don’t belong to you.

Apple vs The FBI


The FBI and Apple Are at it Again

Cristal M Clark 

These tiffs between the FBI and Law Enforcement are getting a bit old. On the one hand, Apple refusing to unlock iPhones is understandable on the other hand it makes perfect sense that they would help. Donald Trump’s tweet over it actually makes sense to an extent. I’ll ask this question twice in this article, what is the our government asking Apple to do exactly? 

Trump-Apple-Crimeshop - Edited

We value our privacy but you know when you break the law with acts of terrorism, mass shootings, rape, child molestation, murder, being a drug lord and so on, why the fuck should anyone want to protect that individual? They harm others, in brutal ways, fuck them and whatever so called rights they feel entitled to, their victims had rights before the criminal took those rights away. 

THE FBI-CrimeShop

The FBI recently asked for Apple’s help by Apple unlocking a pair of iPhones belonging to Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, the man accused of killing three people at a Navy base this past December.


In response to the FBI’s request, Apple said that it handed over gigabytes of information, including but not limited to iCloud backups and various other transaction type of information. Apple also said that it gave the FBI “all of the data in our possession” and that it was open to assisting the FBI in other ways going forward.

So Apple is willing to help to a certain extent. 


Attorney General William Barr recently called Apple out for not going the extra mile. The AG had this to say: “We have asked Apple for their help in unlocking the shooter’s iPhones. So far Apple has not given us any substantive assistance. This situation perfectly illustrates why it is critical that investigators be able to get access to digital evidence once they have obtained a court order based on probable cause. We call on Apple and other technology companies to help us find a solution so that we can better protect the lives of Americans and prevent future attacks.”

Wait, what is the AG asking for exactly? If you don’t understand the question, read the AG’s statement again. Are they asking for Apple and others to help prevent future attacks by unlocking user devices before the user commits a crime? That is what court orders and warrants are for right? If memory serves, they asked after the fact and Apple turned over everything that they could. 

If you have an Apple device everything is backed up to iCloud, when a user doesn’t want something backed up to the cloud for instance, the users, pictures, video, notes, reminders, social media accounts, any app really,  they will select that manually and in the case of Mohammed my guess is that Apple gave the FBI everything backed up, these mass shooter/terrorist types don’t usually save things locally, they aren’t stupid. They’ll delete everything they don’t want law enforcement to see before they commit the actual crime and that would include deleting it from the cloud. Therefore, personally I do not believe unlocking the phone would provide any more intel than Apple already turned over. 

The AG is asking for a backdoor just for law enforcement and to that request Apple responded:

“We have always maintained there is no such thing as a backdoor just for the good guys. Backdoors can also be exploited by those who threaten our national security and the data security of our customers. Today, law enforcement has access to more data than ever before in history, so Americans do not have to choose between weakening encryption and solving investigations. We feel strongly encryption is vital to protecting our country and our users’ data.”


Apple is correct, as history shows, backdoors are exploitable. In fact, Tim Cook already responded to this issue back in 2016: “The only way we [can do what the FBI wants] would be to write a piece of software that we view as sort of the software equivalent of cancer, we think it’s bad news to write, we would never write it, we have never written it. And that is what is at stake here.”

APPLE-VS-FBI-CrimeShop - Edited

Apple is not going to waiver in its stance on the issue the AG and law enforcement as a whole need to better understand how technology works as well as certain criminals think and work. If they understood it better maybe they would better understand why Apple gave them everything they could give to them and they are unlikely going to find anything further on the criminals device.

Former F.B.I. Director Wants an End to the Trump Presidency


James Comey

Cristal M Clark 

The man a lot of people think caused the Trump presidency is now vowing to help end it. I don’t blame him, I mean you have to be pretty damn stupid to want to continue with more of the Trump show in 2020. 


James Comey was never one to want to be thrust into the spotlight however since 2016 he has more often than not found himself squarely in it. He is actually doing quite well despite having been fired, he is actually making more money these days. 

IMG_2260 - Edited

He is also not much of a fan of Donald Trump, nor is Trump of James. Yet James seems to have a calmness about him about it all. He has been watching Trump rip apart every single foundation that made this country and as with most of us, Trump and his ideals, his followers, well those are the things nightmares are made of. Sometimes, even daymares. 

James Comey really doesn’t like having a Twitter account as media reports state, I doubt even Obama loves having one, but the reality is that people need and want them both to have Twitter accounts. Sometimes those of us little people need to be reminded of what real leadership is about so that we do not start to lose faith in a system that has been ravaged, pillaged, raped and torn apart by our current President. 


Despite the fact that many believe James Comey all but handed Trump the Presidency, James has a huge following. I include myself in that following. The reality is that Trump had already won the Presidency, many of us watched the numbers and wrote about it in the months and weeks leading up to the election. It was an inevitable given. James didn’t do that, I lived in Florida during the election, I heard and spoke with many of his supporters. This year I went to Pennsylvania and spoke to a different breed of his supporters, James Comey did not win him the election. 

James Comey is still a very highly respected man within the FBI, some agents joined the FBI because of that man. When James tweets, it is often powerful and thought provoking. 

Lately it’s been reported that he wants to help ensure that Trump does not see another 4 years in the White House which has been turned into a meth trailer park since Trump’s arrival. 

Yet James is unsure of what to do, feeling helpless. 

Well James, welcome to the club. 

Trump’s base can be divided into two very clear types of individuals, those that do not want the same A-Typical politician type in office believing that career politicians are out of touch with the working class, they do not understand us or our needs etc. 

trump-not-fit-for-office-crimeshop - Edited

The other half are more your white supremacist types. They also however, do not want a career politician in office for the same reason the other side doesn’t yet the white supremacists want to hold back women, blacks, hispanics, and take us back to something like the 1950’s era where white men rule. 

We cannot change any of those individuals, we know that Trump’s base will ignore the truth even when it’s proven and still support him. 

So we need to better understand them instead of simply labeling them and then we need to work those that are running against Trump. 

Those are the people who need to change so that they can effectively change the mind of the voter and gain the trust of all of Trump’s base. 

The other huge advantage for anyone running against Trump has is our younger generations and those that were born in mine. Our sheer numbers outnumber Trump’s base and the majority of us do not agree with his policies, his sexism, racism and we just want a mentally ill, unbalanced and unhinged man sitting in the Oval office. 

The problem is, since Trump got into office people have lost faith in our voting system, younger generations do not fully understand it, how it works, much less how important it is to actually vote. 

We also do not want another old white man in the Oval office, so sorry Joe and Bernie. Many have lost faith in our political world, law enforcement, pretty much that Make America Great Again slogan, is and has been anything but that. 

Our Allies no longer trust us, we don’t even trust us. 

So we need to work with those that are running against Trump, we need them to gain the confidence of the voter and its more than just promising to do this or that. For anyone running against Trump, when they say they are going to change something and promise that in a debate they need to back it up with a clear plan on how they can accomplish whatever it is. 

It’s all so easy to say isn’t it? 

The problem is that the world, the United States are split, we are split here, people are suffering and hurting in ways not a single politician running for office currently has even bothered to address let alone open his or her eyes to actually see. 


Because they do not understand it, Trump has capitalized on it, he has acknowledged it, forget what you see on CNN and hit one of his rallies, he knows the suffering, he speaks to it, he simply points the cause of it to things like race, immigration, strict EPA laws, holding the wealthy back, and the like. 

He is clever, and he can speak to the suffering in the US in order to gain support. He knows the pain, he feels deeply the  pain and suffering in this country because he actually hears his supporters and can articulate what they are saying back to them in the form of promises that speak to his base. He can blame a problem on something like immigration, and make a promise thus gaining support. 


No one currently running is doing that. They are gaining support off of hope and only that. That is not enough because Trump can take that in a matter of seconds. 

So, James Comey what can any of us do here? We want to help and change it, the reality is that we are not running for office and Trump no matter how twisted and fucked up he truly is, he knows how to hear which is different from listening and he knows how to feed into what he hears.

FBI Cracking Down on Hate Groups


Homicidal Neo-Nazi Guerrilla Organizations

Cristal M Clark 

If you are part of a homicidal Neo-Nazi Guerrilla Organization, you may want to think twice about your membership in said organization or at the very least not yet paid your dues because the FBI is taking notice of the hate-filled and often times violent filled rhetoric and they are simply not having it. 



An FBI investigation of Atomwaffen Division, proved fruitful and netted the arrest of 2 members of its illustrious Virginia cell which included one senior level member and one active-duty, yes active-duty soldier who belongs to an offshoot group.

Despite the FBI having been investigating the group and its offshoots since 2017, the FBI has been even more keenly interested in this hate groups since the spring of 2018. The group itself however was founded in 2016 by Brandon Russell, a young member of the Florida National Guard, who had a distaste for life in general. A hate filled radical young man with a pretty large chip on his shoulder. 


Atomwaffen Division is a secretive, nihilistic (rejecting all religious and moral principles in the belief that life is meaningless), guerrilla organization that seeks the violent overthrow of the United States government and produces homegrown terrorists such as the likes of the Oklahoma City bomber, one Timothy McVeigh. 

It follows the writings of National Socialist Liberation Front veteran James Mason and also incorporates Satanism and the occult in its internal ideology. 

The investigation is all thanks to the rising concern over right-wing terrorism, and the danger it poses to the United States and her citizens. 

In August the arrest of Conor Climo, a former Army combat engineer and security guard where he was charged with planning attacks on a synagogue and a bar with a largely LGBT clientele, and then the Sept. 21 arrest of 24-year old Jarrett William Smith, an Army soldier stationed in Kansas who is charged with sharing viable bomb-making instructions online and strategizing an attack on Beto O’Rourke, CNN’s New York headquarters, and Antifa activists. 

The investigation shows that Conor was affiliated with Atomwaffen Division and its offshoot, Feuerkrieg Division, while Jarrett Smith claimed membership in Feuerkrieg, and according to an account on the messaging platform Telegram that was oh you know directly tired to Jarrett in court papers.

Terrorist attacks in our United States just last year were in fact, connected to far-right ideology. Mass shootings this year in Southern California and El Paso, Texas, were allegedly carried out by perpetrators who shared in far-right and racist beliefs.

The beliefs of these groups. 

Beliefs that no longer have a place in our great nation let alone the world. 

Now that the FBI has taken notice it is only a matter of time before either all hell breaks lose or the FBI dismantles the group and its affiliates once and for all. And these terrorists, well they are not going to go down without a fight now that they know the FBI is coming for them.

Cop Tied to Cartels?


Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Cristal M Clark 

Cameron Ortis, 47, the civilian director of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) intelligence unit, was charged last week with 3 counts of breaching the Security Information Act and two criminal code offenses. Basically, he has been charged with attempting to sell national secrets. 


The charges go all the way back to 2015 and allege that Cameron attempted to sell high level secrets to an unnamed foreign entity. 

The bad news is that no one is really quite sure just who that foreign entity was, some speculate it was China, others believe it to be drug cartels. 

Canada is having some relationship issues with China currently yet, the drug cartel idea seems to be most fitting in this case. Cameron does happen to have a background in East Asian affairs and, according to his Linkedin profile, speaks Mandarin. So, it would not be far fetched to believe he was selling intel to China. 

I know how it sounds however, Canada is big on BlackBerry smartphones, Vancouver happens to host a pretty seedy company tasked with upgrading the BlackBerry smartphones with unhackable encrypted communications for drug cartel bosses in Mexico, the United States, and in Australia. 

Odd right?

Naturally, this upgrading for the cartels has been happening without the consent and knowledge of well, the makers of BlackBerry, which is even more odd and outlandish. 

To make matters worse this has the potential to be an embarrassment for the Canadian security establishment, because of her intelligence relationships with, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Cameron had “Top Secret” clearance, which means that he also had access not only to the files of Canada’s 20 intelligence-gathering agencies, but also to those of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. 

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Commissioner of the RCMP, Brenda Lucki are trying to work with her allies to ensure that nothing super significant was sold. 

The rumors are running pretty rampant in both the US and in Canada about just what Cameron had access to, who he sold it to and why, some even suggest that the FBI had been the ones to alert Canadian Authorities about Cameron but US officials have neither confirmed nor denied that.
