We all remember Presley Crowe through one way or the other. We got to see her first as Joey Dauben played a Nancy Grace wanna-be in trying to raise publicity for selected cases of sexual molestation of a child. Joey fell head over heels for Connie Bedwell and her story as soon as he saw her picture. Based on her picture, she had to be telling the truth so Joey turned everything over to her including his then nightly radio show. It was there that we were introduced to Connie's partner in crime, Presley Crowe. Presley had become Connie's "plus one" to just about everything they did out there in California. As Connie slowly rebuffed all of Joey's attempts to get a "personal" interview, Joey started to turn his attention to Presley. And, unlike Connie, Presley was willing to give Joey the time of day even without him asking.
Presley's story is somewhat unique in that she is not fighting for her own child, she is claiming to be fighting for her half sister whom she says was abused just as she was. Presley decided to come forward with her own claims of sexual abuse by her dad over a decade after the fact and during a contentious divorce between her dad and mom. Her claim to fame was going on the Dr. Phil show with her claims even though she didn't use her real name on the show.
So Joey, having been shown the Heisman pose from Connie, decided to really start interjecting himself in to Presley's war on her father. This included Joey making posters that Presley then passed out at her half sister's school, calling her dad a pedophile with a picture of him on it. Then the hammer dropped and Joey was charged with having sex with a then 14 year old boy on a camping trip.
Presley dropped everything out in Califorina and rushed to Ellis County to be with her new hero and boyfriend Joey Dauben. She even changed her last name to Dauben and used the disgraced reporter David Webb to proclaim that she and Joey were engaged. The clear inference they were trying to make is that "Joey can't be gay, see he is in love with Presley and they plan to be married". Well as the trial started Presley bolted and left Joey to fend for himself as he was convicted on all counts and sentenced for the main part of the rest of his life in prison.
No, it was on to her new hero in life, none other than Bill Windsor and Lawless America. Presley thought he would be her saviour and she filmed several youtube clips for Bill where she sobbed uncontrollably and rambled off a bunch of incoherent names, dates and instances. She was so taken with Bill that she called him her daddy, and of course being the sexual deviant that he is....he went along with that name calling as well.
Well trouble brewed again as Connie, who had also fallen for the Lawless scam, got in to a fight with Bill and of course he banned her and all her friends including Presley. This put Presley in a tough spot as her former "daddy" was now calling her a liar and threatening to sue her, so she went back crying to Bill and pleading with him to take her back. Bill did, in that he didn't name her on the list of people he wanted to sue, but she lost her youtube rights and her connection to Lawless.
Now its back to Connie. And low and behold Connie's father is now accused of being a serial rapist of young girls. Once again Presley shows her undying support for child molesters by changing her last name to Tuma in support of Connie's pedophile father. And, once again, he is convicted and will spend the rest of his life in prision.....and does Presley learn her lesson as recently as last week?
Presley Renae Crowe I'm so proud of you & wish I could be there to raise some hell with you! I LOVE YOU! #FreeTimothyBedwell we should get that hashtag trending on Twitter! 31 August at 23:27 via mobile · Like · 1
Nope, looks like nothing has been learned even still. Now why do I bring all this up again? What still kills me about Presley is that she, absent all the stupid she has inserted in her life, is a bright young girl with her whole future ahead of her. But she is choosing to fight other peoples battles and it is sucking the life out of her. She has pushed away all her family, and the more isolated and alone she is, the more she gets used and abused by all these predators. We saw how this can end tragiclly as it did for Trish Krauss, who like Presley was a smart vibrant person full of life but allowed others and these "causes" to literally suck that life out of her.
We are never going to change the minds of the Bill Windsors, David Schieds, Connie Bedwells of the world. They sold their soul and there is no turning back for them. I can only hope that we can do something to help the future Presley and Trish Kraus' of the world from falling in to their web of lies and abuse. If Presley had never met Connie, Joey, and Bill....I have no doubt that her life would be in a much better, more productive and happy place. If Trish had never met the vampire known as David Schied....I have no doubt she would be alive and well.
