Friends and family of the accuser say the man convicted of molesting her in early 2014 wasn’t given a fair trial and the police, the Department of Social Services (DSS), the District Attorney, and the judge were fooled by a manipulative teenager. Jon Massey committed suicide by swallowing a cyanide pill shortly after being found guilty of molesting his girlfriend’s daughter Ruby, twelve at the time of the allegation, but Liz Scanlon, a teacher for nearly thirty years, believes her daughter lied.

Massey had struggled with depression and suicidal ideation since 2001, according to Scanlon.

“There are some teenagers that will threaten to call CPS and the police on their parents if they aren’t allowed to do what they want. Some of them even follow through.” Scanlon said.

Scanlon said the Jefferson County Department of Social Services (DSS) removed both Ruby and her younger daughter, now 10, immediately after Ruby first made the allegations because Scanlon was skeptical of her daughter and stuck by Massey.

Margaret Williams, Scanlon’s friend, said she believed that the state vigorously prosecuted Massey because Liz Scanlon threatened to sue the state. Scanlon filed a Notice of Claim in October 2012, the first step toward filing a formal lawsuit, shortly after DSS removed both Ruby and her younger daughter.

As a result of Massey’s conviction and Scanlon standing by him, both Ruby and Scanlon’s younger daughter, now 10, Scanlon hasn’t seen either daughter in more than a year.

“All Jon ever did was try to be a good father to all three of them (Liz Scanlon’s kids),” said Khris Lavere a friend and neighbor of Scanlon’s.

Scanlon said she’d maintained an on and off again relationship with Massey starting in 2008, but it wasn’t until July 2012 that her daughter first accused him of molesting her. But it was what the jury didn’t hear that Massey’s lawyer, Sal Piemonte, said was critical to the case.

In the weeks leading up to the accusations Ruby had been caught a number of times visiting a twenty-one year old named Michael Heisler.

The relationship became intense and sexual with on text message stating, “If our relationship works, let’s write a book for prejudiced society. Our little love story/scandal will be a best seller.”

One evening past midnight about two weeks prior to the accusations, Scanlon and her daughter got into an argument which turned violent and woke up their neighbors, the Lavere’s.

The Red Lake School Shootings, 10th Anniversary

dumb_deesMarch 21, 2005 – Red Lake, Minnesota – Under the crazy-making and neurotoxic influence of 60 mg of Prozac, and using his grandfather’s shotgun and Glock pistol, Jeff Weise, age 16, shot and killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s girl friend at their home. He then went to his Red Lake High School and shot and killed a security guard, a teacher, 5 students, and finally himself, leaving a total of 10 dead and 7 wounded. Weise had previously spent about a year and a half in a residential juvenile treatment program, presumably under the care of a prescribing psychiatrist and other mental health personnel. Weise had reportedly had his dose of Prozac increased to 60 mg per day. (Note: only one American SSRI “antidepressant” [all of which have identical mechanisms of action and cause adverse effects] is FDA-approved for adolescents, and in some European nations it is against the law for doctors to prescribe SSRIs for children because of the lack of long-term safety studies and the known increased incidence of violence and suicide. The usual starting dose of Prozac for adults is 10 – 20 mg/day and 8% of the population lacks the liver enzymes to metabolize and de-toxify SSRI drugs, thus becoming instantly toxic from the drugs.)
