United States District Court, Sixth Circuit

May 31, 2013

SARAH TEAGUE Plaintiff,
v.
KENTUCKY STATE POLICE et al. Defendants.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

THOMAS B. RUSSELL, District Judge.

Plaintiff, Sarah Teague, filed a pro se, in forma pauperis complaint (DN 1) and amended complaint (DNs 5 and 8) under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (DN 1). This matter is before the Court for screening pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) and McGore v. Wrigglesworth, 114 F.3d 601 (6th Cir. 1997). For the reasons set forth below, the action will be dismissed.

I. SUMMARY OF CLAIMS

Plaintiff sues a number of people involved with the investigation of her daughter's disappearance in Henderson County, Kentucky, nearly 18 years ago. The complaint names as Defendants the Kentucky State Police (KSP); the Henderson Police Department; Clay Hutchinson; Mike Cline; Jon Fritz; Pat Isbill; Robie Atherton; Jeff Eastham; David Osborne; Susan DeWitt; Brian Babbs; Samantha Deegan; James Hendricks; Tim Walthall; Jerry Garner; Robin Lewis; Marc Carter; Robert Shoultz; Greg Beard; Tim Rascoe; Dr. Mark LeVaughn; Scott Thomas; and Larry Owens. She states that she has proof that the story she was told on August 26, 1995, concerning her daughter Heather's abduction is not true. Her narrative is as follows:

On August 26, 1995, I received a phone call from KSP (Kentucky State Police) asking me if I knew where Heather was, that her car was being towed. According to this officer, Heather had left her car parked illegally on farm property on Newburgh Beach in Henderson County, Spottsville, KY.
He arrived on the beach to find Heather's car on a tow truck, her empty blue lounge chair at the water's edge.
We met Lt. David Osborne. He pulled out Heather's bathing suit top and asked if it belonged to Heather. He then told us that Heather had been dragged into the woods by her hair at gunpoint as an eyewitness watched through a telescope from across the river in Indiana. The "suspect" was 6'0", 210-230 lbs., with dark bushy hair and a bushy beard. He had worn no shirt, cut-off jeans and black tennis shoes.
Bootprints were found beside Heather's chair and KSP did a mold. FBI processed the Bronco. Evidence was given to KSP where it set for ten years. (Remember, according to eyewitness, suspect wore black tennis shoes.) Who wore the boots?
KSP did their own independent testing 8 months after Heather was taken. Results were "inconclusive." (Remember FBI process vehicle.) FBI did not find the two spots of blood on passenger window of Bronco. Bronco given back to family (Dill), where the door was removed....
After 10 yrs., the detective, Tim Rasco, asked Marty's mom what size shoes he had worn.
There is something wrong with this investigation into Heather's "alleged" abduction. I say "alleged" because the first Lt., Sgt., the eyewitness have created stories. After Dill's death, I was encouraged to stop looking for Heather. At two months, Lt. Osborne took away (or tried to) all hope. If, since, to this day, "they" blame Marty Dill for this, why won't they search his property?
I have searched in places a mother shouldn't have to search for her child while the officials change their stories.
These are the questionable acts that need to be given attention to:
• 911 call
• sketch
• 2 DNA reports
• investigative report
• autopsy report
• FOIA/DEA (FBI's files)
• Suicide note
The information in this ...
