Chris Pratt, Telephone Calls Released under FOIA

June 2, 2008- On January 24, 2008 a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was submitted to the Calhoun County Sheriff for the telephone calls of Christopher Luke Pratt while he was incarcerated at the Calhoun County Correctional Facility (June 24, 2007-January 9, 2008). It was approved in part and those documents have already been published. Recently the recorded telephone conversations were provided, are being transcribed and will all be published. These are just some of the calls between Chris Pratt and family members. Inmate Pratt is now serving up to 15 years at Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility in Ionia, Michigan. He was convicted for crimes against a recent girl-friend and unrelated to Mary's case. If you have any information on the disappearance and murder of Mary Denise Lands you are urged to contact the Michigan State Police.
Please do your part for Clifford & Anita Marshall, and help bring Mary home so that the family can permit her to rest in peace. That is all they are asking. Please help solve this case.

how can i hear the other two calls

What a crock of crap. Even from his jail he was trying to track Norrene's movements and who she might be with? The short amount of conversations still show how devious a guy he really can be.
How can a turd like this be able to get away with murder?

the best thing that happened to his girl friend is pratt went to prison. she would have ended up like Mary.

why can't the police lock up this sick bastard for life. charge him without a body and he'll make a deal. 20 years would be worth it to bring this all to an end.

How can this secret be kept? Sam Pratt knew before he croaked. He knew Christopher stole his wallet at his deathbed. Louise probably knows it to. Clyde and his possee, Jeff, John, Eli. Half the cuzs in Homer and Albion know what happened to Mary. Isn't there one good Christian person among these people.
Christ, make the call and have her recovered. That is all Marshall's want. Who cares if anyone goes to jail. I don't think Chris Pratt is ever going to get out of prison anyway. He misses kids football games, he'll miss graduation and probably their marriages. They are all better off not knowing the dirtbag.

Listened to the conversations. Makes me sick! Asking the children about their grades and sports only to get into the conversation enough to ask "What have you heard?" "It's really bad in hear, people getting killed everyday" Just what you want for a sweet bed time story for your kids to go to sleep with. Give me a break, it is all about Chris no matter how well the kids are doing. Great grades - honor roll, yet he chooses to focus on himself. Are you not talking son because your mother is with you. Great guy. Even his mother seem to be avoiding him. Someone needs to turn a light on for him that no one is anwering their phones because they don't want to talk to him. Can't take a hint. Part of the behavior.

As far as not trying Mary's case without a body - it does seem as though it would be possible as the players are known. But, it is an election year my friends. Wonder if Halacy knows what a feather in his cap that would be for the judgeship if he would just. Put forth the effort.

You go Jim. We must all stay together for Mary and her family.

God Bless

was it just me or was there only 4 calls there? 2 of the links were repeats? it was intersting to put a voice to the name and face feel sorry for his kids though. poor kid didn't know what to say. and wasn't he in county jail when he talked to his kid? people aren't getting killed in the county jail. what a liar

It sounds like he was running the guards and in jail with special favors. Sure, we all fall for his BS. It does show how danagerous he would be on streets

Anonymous said...

i think it sounds like he lies alot!!1000 push ups...right.what an obsession he has about norrie!he said he would never have another girl friend,THANK GOD.

just jack/sam said...

Sam Pratt found out the awful truth just before he died. It was a subject not talked about before. I guess no one wanted to know the truth. Before he died, Sam asked Chris to come clean. Chris told him he did it but it was an accident. Sam didn't believe him. Chris took Sam's wallet just like that blogger said.
He also took Sam's watch and a few valuables of Sam's. Do you want to know something really sick? Chris stole his mom's money that she had in a dresser.

I would like to say something about the phone conversations. The talk Chris had with his sons made me sick. He has never thought about how his sons have been affected by his crap. His children have been through hell because of him. I wish Chris would stop calling them so they could have some peace and stability in their lives.

I hope that Cliff, Anita, Su and Norrene know how hard we are working to bring Mary home and lock Chris away for good. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Anonymous said...

Maybe I'm alone here, but what do those phone calls have to do with Mary? If a "Pratt" talks about something other than Mary, bloggers attack and say "This is about Mary." Those phone calls do nothing but humiliate Chris' kids more so than they already have been. I listened to all of them and learned NOTHING new. Chris being obsessed? Not new. Chris using whatever means possible to keep his fantasies alive in his head? Not new.

Anonymous said...

If you feel the tapes have no value I would ask Cliff & Anita to have them removed? My understanding is that the family has no objection. It was publicized to have people hear the voice and demeanor of this evil person.

Billy Jack is posting other messages,on this blog,as other people.He is praising himself over and over for his work.He cant find it at home with his family so he comes in here acting like the next "American hero".Can anyone else see this?For those that are here to actually find Mary's killer...More Power to You !

My point was not that the tapes were insulting to Cliff & Anita. Those tapes are humiliating for Chris' children. Chris may be an idiot, but his kids aren't to blame and should not be drug through the mud yet again.

Justinian Investigative Services said...

In response to a few comments certain tapes were removed.

Anonymous said...

did sue have objection to the tapes being on here of her son? did cliff or anita? I think they were a great insite to how chris really is. I don't think they should have been removed just because some bloggers had a problem with it.

Justinian Investigative Services said...

Cliff & Anita felt that the information was very worthwhile and should be online. It gave insight into the manipulating ways of Christopher Luke Pratt. Other family members and people who heard the tapes agreed that it should remain public and might instill others to talk about Mary's case and bring her home.
We honored the request of the one person who was adament that the tapes not be online. I disagree and believe they should be available.
For now, the people who listened to Chris Pratt's voice are aware of what was said and the lies he has told to so many in the past.
There is also no doubt of the many lies he has told related to the disappearance of murder of Mary Denise Lands.
Cliff & Anita ask you to continue to think of their daughter and what can be done to bring her home?
If you have any questions, all our telephone numbers are listed. Call any time.

Thanks Jim for sharing these phone calls that Chris Pratt made while he was in the Calhoun County Jail. It really angers me that he involved his sons by trying to get them find out information about Norrene. One thing which really disgusted me was when he told one of the boys about people dying in jail then went on to describe it. He sounded like he enjoyed talking about it. What is really sad is that these boys really love him and he, on some level, loves them, too. I believe that those two boys, along with Chris's mother, are the only ones he has true feelings of love about.

My heart goes out to those boys and their mother Su. Su is a wonderful human being and thank God, she is there to bring stability to them. The same is to be said about her husband, their stepdad. From what I have read, he has been a wonderful presence in their lives and thank God for him, too.

Anonymous said...

I was relieved to see the boys phone conversations removed from this blog. The calls did give great insight into the manipulating ways of Chris but at what cost? Why punish the victims? These are children that have been through so much already, lets protect them and not publish reminders of a horrible time in their life. And believe me they will be hearing about this all day long at school, it just isn't right.

Anonymous said...

That is totally correct. It amazes me that from a razor-wire prison an evil being like Chris Pratt can still exercise control over some of you like puppets. Damn the bastard. No truth should be shielded from anyone. I think you made a mistake in censoring anything that shows the public facts about Mary’s case and who might be involved. It needs to be put back up along with anything else.
What happened to; we’re not gonna take it anymore.

to the april 24-5:50 post yes you got me thats all i do post silly things about me all day.you dont know me so stop acting like you do!now that thats over..i just put in a follow up call to the state senators office and they are eager for the next meeting.as purpose drivin has asked any one that would like to post old clues no matter how small you think they are please do again.and to the person that deserves all the credit is jim he has gone over and above and he continues to do so on his own time.i think that the phone calls was a good thing to show how chris s obsession with norrie and how much he still controls people from the inside.thanx billy jack♦♦♦

hmm, I wonder said...

Billy Jack, keep us posted on the meeting with the state senator's office. It's time to move ahead and take this to the next level.

To the blogger who said that Billy Jack is posting messages under other bloggers' names:
I don't think you know what you are talking about. Just because people agree with what he says doesn't mean that it is he blogging. Get your facts straight before making ridiculous statements like that. It makes me wonder who you are.....

just jack/sam said...

I am not happy with a certain person right now. This person is not backing up someone who is doing the dirty work so to speak. You know who you are. I am not saying anything more about it for now.

I am telling you all something right now about Chris Pratt. He is keeping track of what is going on here through his sources, Sarge and Jeff. Don't even delude yourselves into thinking that this is ridiculous because I am telling you that this is exactly what is going on. Jeff and his posse are still doing what they have been doing all along. Not even one cop in MPD is even interested in exposing him. You all know as well as I do why this is.

I am telling you that Mary's case should be the focus but the law enforcement people aren't seeing it that way. They want to kill two birds with one stone. The problem with this thinking is that it's keeping them sort of distracted from what is staring them right in the face. I want them to stop for a minute and ask themselves: HOW DID CHRIS KEEP FROM GETTING HIMSELF ARRESTED FOR MARY'S MURDER WHEN HE WAS GOING AROUND TELLING EVERYONE HE DID IT?
Mary's murder has to be solved FIRST then everything else will fall in place; not the other way around. I'm no cop but even I see that this is taking too long to solve. START AT THE BEGINNING, THE ANSWERS ARE THERE.

hmm - 4/26

I am in the process of putting together the information for the second meeting. They are waiting. Now that I have a minute or two I can work on putting things down in the proper way to be submitted.

Please, anyone with any little thing that you feel might have been neglected please put it down and we will just let them decide what is significatn and what is not. Thank you all for your input so far. It is all in the name of bringing Mary home and hoping all of those responsible will be named. If not our main goal is to find her and let the authorities do their work.

Jim as you know you will be aware of everything to share with family of Mary.

I mentioned a while back that anyone could be writing under anyone's name - so do pay attention. If it not you make sure you respond to the blog to correct information.

Bless You - We are getting close thanks to everyone.

billy jack said...

hello.

just jack/sam said...

There is nothing like a real spring cleaning, is there? Wasn't that nice of Jeff and Eli to pick up trash on Louise's property?

Let's be straight here. Jeff and Eli were digging on Louise's land and they were burying some of Mary's things. I am going to tell you all why they are doing it. Chris told Jeff to get rid of Mary's stuff that was left in Louise's house. Not one cop has asked about what was going on there that day. Why does Jim even bother, you ask. It's because he cares and he will get someone to pay attention to this and other things.

Part of the problem as I've said before is that this case is too broad in focus. It is frustrating to those of us who are Mary's advocates to wonder what the hell is going on with this case. All I can say is that things will change very, very soon. The meeting with the state senator's office will start things rolling. It will be the people of this area who will get this case solved. Mark my words.

I am so upset with Jeff and Louise right now. They had the chance to make things right but they didn't do it. The truth always comes out, you two. When it comes out, you two will be investigated along with the other thugs involved.

billy jack said...

yes you are so right!!the meeting will make a difference mark my words..keep posting friends!!

I think that the last blog from BILLY JACK is not really from the real BILLY JACK. My guess is that it's from the cop that others refer to as "Sarge". Don't insult our intelligence, sir. I suggest you focus on your plans for the future... like a trial. What a piece of work you are!

you know he called chris before mary was reported missing?hummm its all about him now hes the one!!!HE KNOWS TO MUCH!!

just jack/sam said...

That is exactly right, Billy Jack. Sarge knew what happened before Mary was reported missing. In fact, he instigated the last act of abuse that Chris inflicted on dear Mary.

I have been studying this case from afar and I am appalled at some of the folks,

"WHO DO NOTHING BUT VICIOUSLY ATTACK PEOPLE WITH THEIR DO NOTHING APPROACH THAT WILL ABSOLUTELY DO NOTHING TO BRING MARY HOME!"

HOW MANY HOURS HAVE MANY OF YOU SPENT ON THE INTERNET ATTACKING PEOPLE THAT HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BUT GENERATE HARSH FEELINGS IN YOUR COMMUNITY?

AND HOW MANY HOURS HAVE MANY OF YOU SPENT SEARCHING THE VACANT OLD HOUSES & WELLS OR THE PUBLIC HUNTING & FISHING SPOTS?

STOP THE DO NOTHING VICIOUS ATTACKS
AND START DOING SOMETHING TO FIND MARY! ORGANIZE SOME SEARCHES AND
ATTACK THE PROBLEM AND IT WILL BE SOLVED!!

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS AND
ACCOMPLISHES MUCH MORE THAN YOU KNOW!!

MARY CANNOT BE FOUND BY VICIOUS WORDS, BUT WILL BE FOUND BY FOLKS WHO DESIRE TO PUT FORTH AN ACTION OF CONTINUED SEARCHING!!

I have already done some searching
on my own and I will be back TO ATTACK THE PROBLEM and search again.

Please post if there are to be any upcoming searches or are many of you just satified by being a "DO NOTHING?"

BillyJack,
The family and I appreciated your intentions over the last 6 months however I would ask that you not post any further comments. A month or so ago I heard from individuals complaining about you on Mary’s site and on others. At first I thought it was probably a coincidence? However, today I was again contacted and those individuals know you as BillyJack, and have details of your prolonged harassment. You have made totally inappropriate crude comments on many issues. These individuals know your real name, address, wife’s name, former employment, telephone number, etc. so there is no doubt of your identity.
As you can see from some of the recent comments, you are hindering more than helping in Mary’s case. If you really care about bringing her home you’ll find another place online for chat. I don’t want to return to moderating all comments but if that is what it takes, we’ll do it.

Justinian Investigative Services said...

Thank you, BillyJack for your offensive and obscene remarks. Your recorded telephone voice is evidence of the malice others have proffered.
I thought perhaps you were just having one to many brews during the day? It could be there are other underlining mental issues.
You’ve heard the last from me, I hope we have heard the last from you.
Now lets all get back and focus on Mary Denise Lands.

Anonymous said...

This is the first time I have ever posted on this blog, and it will be the last. I do not know Mary or anything regarding her case. I know Billy Jack from another chatroom. He has been constantly harrassing me accusing me of posting here about him. I just would like you all to know, none of the people I associate with would put this poor family through this and take the spotlight off of this woman for any reason. Any problems I have/had with him are handled elsewhere. It is a shame it all came to this and I contacted Jim and encouraged him to check into IP addresses and such as proof. It looks like he's made more than a few enemies along the way and I am very sorry it was brought here. Good luck with your search for Mary and God Bless.

amen,
another friend of Mary. You will find her.

just jack/sam said...

I want to say something about what has been written today. It makes me upset that there have been atacks on someone whose main cause has been to find Mary and bring her home. I am upset with the last comment from Jim because it sounds like what Billy Jack has been accused of saying. What is wrong here is that it looks like it's okay for one person to say vicious things about another. I am sorry that it has come to this, folks but I don't think that this is the last we hear from Billy Jack nor should it be.

Justinian Investigative Services said...

I understand your concerns. It is not an issue of being accused. I heard the language, the people in another part of the country heard it and have notified the police. He may have had the best of intentions back then, but he is not welcome here and that is final. He can build his own Magnum PI site (another moniker of his) and do all he wants in other people’s web sites.
This one is about what can we do to bring Mary home. I’m sure that some have welcomed his help. We did too. But the proof is in the pudding. He needs to gidde up and out
If others don’t like it they can go to the other sites. We still receive daily email on Mary’s case and today I met with someone for nearly three hours who had a wealth of information.
We will find the answers we are seeking and Mary will come home.

ME said...

oh man i missed something what has billy jack done wrong? I know his comments are kind of rude but i believe he is trying to help bring mary home.how do you know it is truly billy jack saying these things?did i read into it wrong that he has been harassing some people over the phone ( his voice recorded)? if so that is truly a shame. i trust you jim. can't wait for you to be able to reveal to us this 3 hr meeting you had. i know you will when you can. i can't wait for this to be solved. and i do also aggree until its proven all of these people have done what they are accussed of that they should not be treated like they are guilty

There is a lot of things going on and each day it is more and more promising.

Thank you all for the support and please continue to talk about Mary and what we can do to bring her home.
Everyone knows my number and email, and that of Cliff & Anita. You are welcome to call at any time or email.
Thanks again.

there are two sides to every story............................

we all share the same goal: bringing Mary home to her family...

let's stop the bickering and work together to acomplish our goal.....

Mary is waiting to come home.

Justinian Investigative Services said...

Clifford & Anita and family members have dicussed placing back on the Internet the additional calls made by Inmate Pratt while at the Calhoun County Correctional Facility.
9 files are now available to be heard and 64 more are pending.
Most of the persons listening to these monitored telephone calls feel they have merit and bring more insight into Inmate Pratt's manipulative and controlling demeanor.

Gina said...

Jim,
You did the right thing. Many have gotten away from the real purpose of this blog and that is to bring my sister home. Ranting and raving, calling others names will not accomplish that. We know things were screwed up in the beginning, we know things weren't followed up on and we know that if handled differently, we probably would have found Mary by now. Unfortunately, that is not the case. So, we must get past that and focus on finding Mary. Once we find Mary, the rest will fall into place and the police can do what they need to. To tell you the truth, all this bashing has made me not even want to open my email. I ask you all to please step back, re-focus and think of a plan to search, a plan to look and a plan to find her. We just want to find her and put her to rest. We'll never have our darling Mary back or ever see her vivacious laughter and character again. We just want to remember her as she was, not the horrible things that happened to her. Mary loved Su's children very much and she cared deeply about them. She would not want them to suffer. We all should be protecting the children. They are innocent. So I ask you, re-focus and find Mary. I was reading a book written by Anne Bird. She was Scott Peterson's sister. Scott Peterson murdered my cousin, Laci. When her body and the baby's washed ashore, the police were finally able to arrest him and you know the rest of the story. In her book, she never wanted to believe that Scott was guilty, but she finally came to realization that he was guilty. Some things may take years to accomplish, but the truth will come out eventually.
Thank you for listening. We are here for one purpose and that is to find Mary and have justice for Mary.
Gina

ME said...

I So agree with you ,Cliff and Anita for putting the calls back up for the world to see.You can clearly hear how uncomfortable his sons got when talking about Norene. ( when chris was pushing for info on her and their mother). Did Chris Care? NO! he just kept asking more questions trying to get more info. Can't wait to hear the other 69 calls. Have a good night all

Yuk. Hearing his voice and listening to the way he talks to his kids makes me want to be sick.
Who talks like that!?!

Justinian Investigative Services said...

Clifford & Anita Marshall asked me to add their comments to Mary’s blog, after some developments today.
In 10 months they will have no choice but to declare their beloved daughter, Mary Denise Lands, deceased. They then hope to go on and live out the remainder of their twilight years among friends and family. It will be up to law enforcement authorities to charge the person/s responsible for Mary’s murder.
We all know the identity of the perpetrators, and so do the police. Clifford Marshall said that he hoped over the last 4 years of public awareness for Mary’s case that the life of some other woman may have been saved? It surely has, and I can immediately name three.
Next year, the Marshall’s will attempt to have some closure in happier environs. They warn however that Chris Pratt will probably be out of prison in February 2012, if not earlier, and he will be back into the lives of the same people who have tried to escape from his grasp. It won’t be the Marshall’s problem at that point in time. It will be a problem for our society and any woman, from his past or in the future, who can be charmed and manipulated by a sociopath who should be serving a life sentence in a Michigan prison.

Jim- Thank you for removing the phone calls between Chris and his two boys. Those boys are victims, too. Even though those calls show what type of person Chris is, they also humiliate his children. Although it's, I'm sure, not what you wanted to do, I commend your integrity in choosing to remove those links.

So is it after 5 years she is considered deceased?

just jack/sam said...

February, 2012 will be here before we know it. Chris Pratt must never be let out of prison. Su, Norrene and other women must be kept safe from this sociopath of a man. I continue to stand behind the comments that I have made in this blog and others. Mary must be the priority in this investigation and we must go back to the beginning to find out what happened to her. I am losing patience with how long this case is taking. Gina was right when she said that this case should have been solved by now.

I just can't understand what would motivate someone to take the life of a beautiful human being. I can't understand why people have covered for this monster of a man and continue to do so. It's a sad statement about what this world has come to when a law enforcement officer who has sworn to protect and serve betrayed Mary and the people of Marshall and continues to do so to this day. The truth is out there about Chris Pratt so what the heck are you all waiting for? Charge him for Mary's murder and charge all those responsible.

Anonymous said...

The pass few months i've been on here reading comments and whatever else! all the stories people make up on here! its INSANE! LEAVE ALL OF THE PRATT FAMILY ALONE!

hmm, I wonder said...

As others have said, the priority should be finding Mary. Everything else will follow. I think that some citizens have entertained the thought about searching for Mary on their own but what may be stopping them is the fact that they could jeopardize the investigation. On the other hand, their desire to take things into their own hands stems from a frustration with how this case has been handled from the start. What we have here in this blog is that many are feeling that things are in limbo. So, we sit and wait. And, as time moves on, there is anger and a feeling of helplessness on all of our parts that here we are, 4 years after Mary's disappearance, and Mary is still out there somewhere waiting to come home.

The handling of this case leaves us all unsettled and disturbed. What if it was one of us or our loved ones who had something like this happen to them. I can't even begin to imagine what Cliff, Anita and their family have gone through. What happened is so devastating on its own but when you couple it with how this family has been treated and how this case has been handled, words simply can't describe what they have been through.

It is time for law enforcement to solve this case. It is time for Mary to come home to her family. It's only after this that healing can happen. Down the road, we will have to address the mishandling of this case and the behavior of certain individuals associated with it. We will have to hold them accountable and changes will have to be made. We, the community, need to feel safe and secure again. We need to feel confident that our local law enforcement is out there serving and protecting us. We need to have people like Chris Pratt and his group of misfits locked up so they can't hurt another soul again. We will not feel peace until these things happen. God bless Cliff, Anita and their family. God bless Su, her husband and boys. Finally, God bless Norrene for having the courage to come forward and expose the true Chris Pratt. I truly believe that this has been the turning point in this case. May 2008 be the year for answers and resolution.

hmm, I wonder said...

This is for Gina.....

Hello Gina. One of the bloggers, Purpose Driven, has wanted to speak with you but was hesitant to impose on you. Your dad has her telephone number so if you feel like speaking with her, she would love to talk with you. My thoughts are with you and your family. God bless you all.

Give it up. It could be a pratt family member might come clean and bring Mary home. you ppl still cant think he is innocent???

Today is Mother's Day. Tomorrow it will be 4 years and 2 months since Mary disappeared.
Isn't it about time for police to act, prosecutors to charge and justice to be served? How much longer will this go on? One Pratt family member talking can end it all now.
Louise Pratt, Happy Mother's Day. At least you know where your son is!!

Dante Alighieri's "Inferno" has a vision of Hell based on Thomas Aquinas's interpretation of Aristotle's principle of retribution. This is the concept of contrapasso, in which the soul's suffering in Hell extends or reflects or reembodies the sin that predominated it.
One example; murderers are boiled in blood. This vision of Hell is grounded as well in the medieval belief in a rigorous divine justice.
We may never see justice for Mary on earth, however all will see justice in Hell for those involved in Mary's murder.

Mr. Marshall asked this to be posted FYI.
Talk about dirty pool!
As many of you know, Cliff Marshall gave up his position as park manager of the Sunrise Mobilehome Court. They have resided there since returning to Michigan after learning of the disappearance of their daughter, Mary Denise Lands, in March 2004.
There have been ongoing problems with residents and the new owner of Sunrise for several months on various maintenance issues. The Marshall Chronicle wrote a story in today’s edition.
Over the weekend Mr. Marshall received an eviction notice advising him he was required to vacate in June. It was addressed to Cliff and Betsy Marshall. One would think that the owner, John Dalaly & DJK Properties of Farmington Hills, Michigan would know that Cliff’s wife is Anita, not Betsy.
Does this have anything to do with the casino being built a few miles away? The Marshall’s have always been good tenants and Cliff worked hard as park manager. The eviction notice stated DJK Properties did not wish to continue their lease. Thus far, the other 29 occupants of the park have not yet received any notices to vacate.
By the way, the eviction arrived under the letterhead from the property owner’s new attorney, J. Thomas Schaeffer of Marshall. Mr. Schaeffer was the attorney who represented Chris Pratt in his trial last December in which he was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for assault on a recent girl-friend.
It is not enough for the Marshall's to lose a daughter, some people now also want them to lose their home.
Another sad Mother's Day for Anita.
Anything for a buck!

This family's been screwed by police and system for years now.
They should say FU Marshall Michigan and keep good thoughts of daughter Mary and for get on with future. There is no justice for people who obey law. Just for crooks & them with the money.
God Bless you Anita * Clifford. Your in our prayers.

Retaliation and Harassment!!!!
Did a little research. Here is the link and what the law says

http://www.lsscm.org/resource.2005-07-14.6588275991/html_view


Q: On what grounds can I be evicted?
A: Tenancies in mobile home parks may not be terminated without just cause which is statutorily defined as one or more of the following: (a) use of the mobile home site for an unlawful purpose; (b) failure to comply with the lease, agreement, or rules adopted therein which relate to (i) the health, safety, or welfare of the mobile home park, its employees, or tenants, (ii) the quiet enjoyment of another, or (iii) the physical condition or appearance of the mobile home; (c) a violation of MCL 125.2306; (d) intentional physical injury to personnel, other tenants, or their property; (e) violation of a local ordinance, state law, or government regulation pertaining to mobile homes; (f) 3 or more late payments in a 12-month period; (g) conduct creating a substantial annoyance after notice and an opportunity to be heard; (h) failure to maintain home or site consistent with aesthetics appropriate to the park; (i) condemnation of the park; (j) changes in use or nature of the park; or (k) public health and safety violations by the tenant.

I agree with the last blog. I'm sure the Marshall family will talk with an attorney. There is no doubt that more eviction notices will be on the way. That location will be leveled within a year and end up a store, office or gas station.
Why doesn't Marshall Township get involved? Because they don't care.
They care only about the dollar.

This eviction deal makes me sick. I agree with the other comments stated here and I encourage people to submit their comments to "Reader's View", Steve Smith's column in the BC Enquirer.

With all of the coincidences that are occurring with the different characters associated with this case, you have to wonder if there is a conflict of interest with Schaffer representing the owner of the property where Cliff and Anita live. After all, he REPRESENTED Chris Pratt in the domestic violence case which sent Chris to prison. You would think that if he had any sense of ethics and decency, he would have opted out of representing this owner. Oh well, what goes around comes around and you, Mr Schaffer, are not exempt from this. People are watching and people are talking. So, let's see who has the final word!

2 years ago this weekend ole Sam Pratt died. He knew what happened with Mary. Now his son is in prison on the 2nd anniversary of his death. Maybe the wallet should be returned. what goes around comes arround.

Here is my suggestion.
If certain family members are so concerned about legacy and good name why don't you march to State Police on Memorial Day and talk of what you know? That would be a real rememberance of Sam Pratt on behalf of his son, Christopher.

Billy Jack,
There is no doubt in my mind, and in your own voice on what occurred on other sites. For now, I'm willing to give you the benfit of a new start and I know it might help the Marshall's in the long run. They have enough going on with the problems of the park and those matters are being addressed.
Just please try to be more balanced in your remarks and together we can get this job done and bring Mary home.
You don't need codes after your name like ♣♣♣, or diamonds or other marks that let a few others know it is really you. This is not "Days of our Lives" or some soap opera fiction show. This is real and we need to find Mary and bring her home.
The Marshall family must have answers. To all, we can talk the talk but we must also walk the walk to to obtain our goals.
Good things are in the works so get out and keep your eyes and ears open. The arrogance of certain evil people will be their downfall.
If anyone is going away for the long weekend have a great holiday.
If you are boating be sure to wear your life jacket. It won't work without you in it!
Others will be out searching and together we will bring Mary home.

Next you will be saying the police framed the Pratts and all the women lied about being beaten. Ask Jeff's girlfriend one day when she is alone. I've seen her marks at the hospital and so have co-workers.

Absolutely, the exact definition of Christopher Luke Pratt, Profile of a Sociopath-
http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html

Look at his history, his brother Jeff and the burns on his face, Chris's sadistic behavior with the genitals of a deer he killed...and much more.
And people ask Where is Mary?

 Persistent lying or stealing
 Recurring difficulties with the law
 Tendency to violate the rights and boundaries of others (property, physical, sexual, emotional, legal)
 Substance abuse
 Aggressive, often violent behavior; prone to getting involved in fights
 A persistent agitated or depressed feeling
 Inability to tolerate boredom
 Disregard for the safety of self or others
 A childhood diagnosis of conduct disorders - this is not a symptom but "a history of"
 Lack of remorse, related to hurting others
 Superficial charm
 Impulsiveness
 A sense of extreme entitlement
 Inability to make or keep friends
 Recklessness, impulsivity
People with a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder often experience difficulties with authority figures.

Yes, the right person is in prison for hurting his recent girlfriend. Now he should be in prison for what he did to Mary.

Michigan needs the death penalty!
With the violence in Detroit, Lansing, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Montcalm County and now in Calhoun County there is no doubt it should be law.
Chris Pratt should be the first to answer. Wouldn't that be Justice for Mary and her family?
It might also some wannabee prevert think before doing something so sick and abnormal.
and realize it is wrong. But poor Creeper doesn't have the neurons firing correctly in that dented egg head of his?
Chris doesn't have a conscience and believes he can do no wrong. Just regular play time with a girl he is supposed to love. Well as the prosecutor in court told Pratt, It seems the woman in your life come to realize that "Love Hurts"! He smirked...

Just like he hurts his children by trying to pull information about how obsessive he is with Noreen with the taped phone calls, no that is right he would never hurt anyone. Wake up you Pratts!!!!

You just spread lies about the Pratt brothers. just turn the other cheek. This expression comes from the New Testament, in which Jesus tells his followers to love their enemies and offer their other cheek to those who have struck one cheek (Luke 6:29).

Chris Pratt a phony born-again Christian may be released from prison one day carrying his bible never to be charged in Mary’s death? The Pratt name and any legacy deserve to forgotten forever. God will reap his wrath when the time comes.
"The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever" (Revelation 20:10).

Anonymous said...

The Marshall’s have shown a community that Chris Pratt is responsible for the death of their daughter and a infamous Pratt legacy is etched in stone. You will have to be satisfied with a lesser justice that their family name will only be remembered for this act of violence against an innocent woman. People will point to Louise Pratt and say there goes the mother of a murderer. People will point to Jeff Pratt and say there goes the brother of a murderer. People will point to the children of Chris Pratt and remember what their father did in 2004. I’m sure even his children know it in their own hearts.
Chris Pratt is a festering pus of evil and in a prison where he belongs. He's needs a bible because he won't be forgiven.

Let's be clear here. Pratt is in prison because he committed a crime. A crime of domestic violence. This is a pattern for him as he was violent towards Norrene, his ex-wife, Su and to Mary herself. To you Pratt sympathizers: your efforts to get Chris out of prison are a waste of time. He has shown a pattern of domestic violence and will continue to do so if he is ever let out of prison. As for the claim that Mary ran off with someone else, get real. Chris, himself, has admitted to others that he killed Mary. So, if it makes you feel better to believe that Chris is a Bible toting Christian and that he is innocent, then by all means believe that. But the truth is that he is a sadistic animal of a man who has no conscience and no remorse for that which he did. May he rot in hell!
